Lea Michele dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show for the third time on Thursday. In addition to promoting her debut single “Cannonball,” the 27-year-old opened up about dealing with Cory Monteith’s untimely death. She reveals how Kate Hudson, Ryan Murphy and her mom all helped her deal with her grief just days after her loss.
“She was so wonderful to basically give me her home to myself and my family,” Michele said Hudson. “It was so helpful to just, basically, have a safe place to process, and just have a minute to just breathe before getting back to my house with just has a lot of memories and stuff. So being some place else to just have a moment was really nice.”
On a lighter note, Michele performed her soon-to-be hit single live for the first time. The more I hear “Cannonball,” the more I get hooked. With that being said, I found it hard to separate Lea from her alter ego Rachel Berry during her performance. Am I alone in thinking this? Check out her number below along with her interview.
Ellen DeGeneres must have male strippers on speed dial. It seems every time I tune in to her talk show, a new crop of shirtless studs are congratulating a guest for a recent engagement, wedding, pregnancy, birthday or some other random reason. I wouldn’t be surprised if Ellen congratulated someone for getting their period. Right?
On Monday’s episode, Allison Janney was the latest recipient of Ellen’s “generosity.” I have to say, out of all the ones I’ve seen, Allison appeared to have the most fun with it. She wasn’t at all embarrassed, and if anything, reveled in all the male eye candy. Girlfriend’s eyes were bugging out and her hands were touching the merchandise (extensively). Check out the clip below.
After a year off, The Sing-Off returns for a fourth season to NBC this Christmas. Season 3 winners Pentatonix have gradually become the singing competition’s Kelly Clarkson by being the most successful out of the bunch. Since winning two years ago, their debut EP debuted at No. 14 with a brand new one dropping this week. In addition, they’ve appeared in numerous YouTube videos which have gone viral.
One of their best is the epic “Evolution of Beyoncé” which chronicled the “Irreplaceable” singer’s discography all the way from her Destiny’s Child days to her “Grown Woman” era. Their a capella medley was genius. Apparently, Ellen Degeneres thought so too. She brought them on her show Monday to perform it for a live studio audience. Not surprisingly, it’s pitch perfect. Check it out below, along with the original and their interpretation of the evolution of music. That’s brilliant as well.
The cast and creators of Friends have long maintained that a reunion will never happen. Never say never as the saying goes. Slowly we’re inching ever so close to that Friends reunion.
We’ve seen a combination of pairings of the former Friends on various shows. Courteney Cox appeared on Matthew Perry’s now-canceled Go On. Both Jennifer Aniston and Cox appeared together on Cougar Town and Dirt. Lisa Kudrow reunited with Matt Leblanc on Web Therapy and also popped up on Cougar Town. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe this is the first time we’ve had three of them appear together since the NBC show went off the air.
Aniston called Cox and Perry to help promote her co-hosting stint on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today. In the promo clip, Aniston arrives at Perry’s house for advice since he’s co-hosted with Ellen previously. She mistakenly calls him David [Schwimmer] and jokes about his canceled show Go On. Soon after Cox pops up and also has problems remembering names. She refers to Jen as Lisa [Kudrow]. Check out the video below which also features DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi making brief cameos.
Ever since Matthew Terry gained millions of new fans (and stalkers) after his Super Bowl commercial debut, he’s been on the talk show circuit nonstop. Under the guise of getting to know the male model better, several shows have brought on the Calvin Klein spokesman. From Inside Edition to Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live and everything in between, he’s been working overtime showing off that rock hard stomach (courtesy of planks) to anyone who’ll have him. Maybe we can get him as our first ever guest star on our own Homorazzi show. Dibs on applying body makeup ;)
For one of his promotional obligations, Terry stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Since I was frantically packing for a Whistler ski getaway, I missed the show. I’m sure I’m not the only one who didn’t catch it, so I thought I’d post it anyway, despite being a couple of days late. Check out Matthew showing off his white boy dance moves and more importantly, his sexy body for Ellen and her horny audience. Speaking of Ellen, given that she loves swimming in the lady pond, she certainly has her fair share of hot men stripping on the show. LOL. Check out her latest piece of man candy below.
Ellen DeGeneres recently aired her 1600th episode and one of the ways she wanted to celebrate was to show a montage of some of her favorite moments where people have made her laugh hysterically.
To be more specific, these are the celebrities that she interviews that are making her laugh. This montage is all about members of her staff, people from the audience, and those people that have helped her pull off hidden camera pranks where they have to say what Ellen says to them in their ear piece. I’ve said it before, but one of my favorite things is seeing comedians lose their sh*t and laugh themselves.
One of my favorite parts is when Ellen has someone working at a Starbucks drive-thru say to a customer through the speaker, “Oh, I just ate so much chocolate… I’m full.” To everyone’s surprise, the guy responds, “I just smoked so much weed…” LOL!! Ellen just dies of laugher. Watch the hilarious video below.
Ellen DeGeneres just pulled an Oprah Winfrey and surprised her ENTIRE audience with a free trip to Australia! The audience will be joining her later this year when she films her show on the other side of the globe. The trip was made possible with Swisse Wellness and Qantas as the sponsors.
Appropriately, Nicole Kidman was the special guest of the day and before the big surprise, the two were talking about Australia and what Kidman recommends Ellen do there. There’s one spot in Australia that Kidman joked is magical because she believes she got pregnant there. Then Ellen joked, “If i get pregnant it’s a real miracle!” LOL!
Ellen then mentioned that Australia Day is also her birthday and on her birthday she likes to give presents. So, she led the audience to believe that one lucky person would get the chance to win a trip to Australia. She then dropped the bomb that the entire audience is going and the confetti was let loose. The reactions are my favorite part: Jumping up and down, screaming, crying… the whole nine yards. Watch the funny and heartwarming clip below.
Earlier this week, the hilarious and talented Emma Stone stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about her new movie, Gangster Squad and more. Shortly after bugging her resident DJ, Tony Victor Okungbowa about his secret relationship and then talking about the People’s Choice Award she had won the night prior, Ellen introduced Emma Stone to the stage.
Emma Stone talked about her 1940s accent for her Gangster Squad role, and what it originally sounded like before the director gave her a thumbs down. They also talk about Andrew Garfield, kissing Ryan Gosling, and more. There’s also a funny story about when Ellen DeGeneres went up to Emma Stone and Cameron Crowe‘s table at a restaurant one day (before Emma had ever met her) and what she said.
Watch a couple clips from the interview or watch the entire episode below. I recommend the latter – such a funny episode!
