Khloe Kardashian talks Kimye and Kris Humphries on 'Ellen' -- VIDEO

Khloe Kardashian takes a lot of krap. On SNL, she’s been lampooned as the K-sister who’s neither smart nor pretty. She’s also regularly ridiculed for being person-sized, unlike Kim and Kourtney, who wear lentils as hats and hang glide with a Dorito. But we at EW have always believed that Khloe is the most likeable member of her family — or the most tolerable.

Case in point: A relaxed, smiley Khloe stopped by Ellen today. She proceeded to charm us with an Ashley Judd-ian defense of her body, as well as quips about her sister’s brief marriage (“I feel like they’ve been getting divorced longer than they were married”). Khloe also weighed in on the unholy alliance of Kim and Kanye West. Though she “likes” Kimye as a couple name — oh, Khloe, just when we were starting to warm to you! — she was reluctant to say too much about the relationship: “I think they’re cute together,” Khloe told Ellen Degeneres. “But honey, I don’t know. You’ve got to get her on the show and ask.”

Watch Khloe talk Kimye — and get in a few bonus digs at Kris Humphries — below, then tell us: Are you prepared to like a Kardashian? READ FULL STORY

Spring has sprung! How Ellen DeGeneres, Stefon, and 'Nurse Jackie' are celebrating

Ah, the crisp, warm air breezing past my face, the infused fragrance of azaleas and begonias… this can only mean one thing, PopWatchers: Today marks the first day of spring!

Just like with any occasion, we here at EW always find ways to give just about everything pop culture pomp.  As you crack those windows wide, check out our list of some ways pop culture has weaseled itself into our favorite temperate season. READ FULL STORY

Megan Fox victim of banana split and run on 'Ellen'

While promoting her movie Friends With Kids on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, ubiquitous fembot Megan Fox encountered the greatest trauma of her adult life: a giant banana?

“My only real job that I ever had,” before becoming an actress, explained Fox, “was that I worked at a little smoothie shop in Florida. Once a week, usually on Fridays, someone had to dress up as a piece of fruit and go out and stand by the highway.” Fox recalled: “I was a banana, a giant banana.”

Cue an Ellen staff member dressed in a trauma-evoking banana suit (think Hagrid meets Bananas in Pajamas) creeping up, making a “banana noise” (apparently that’s what that was), and scaring a squeal out of Fox. See the inexplicably random clip below. READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber turns 18, gives a shout-out to cougars and gets a new car. They grow up so fast!

Justin Bieber turns 18 Canadian years old today (I’m still not sure how we convert that here) but got to celebrate the good old American way: By getting a new car! Some guys have all the luck, eh?

During a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which airs today, the now-technically-an-adult pop star — who also tweeted, “dear cougars. i see the jokes. im legal. hahaha”  — was presented by his long-time manager Scooter Braun with a coveted, environmentally-friendly, albeit pricy (around $100k) Fisker Karma to call his own.

“This is amazing!” Bieber gushed over his new present, which was also from pal/mentor Usher. Watch the full clip below, in which DeGeneres gives the singer some additional toys for his new ride, including bobble head dolls for the dashboard and a window sun shade. And don’t give him a hard time for putting it on the outside of the windshield at first, that’s just how they do it in Canada.

Jennifer Aniston's 'Wanderlust' talk show tour continues

Jennifer Aniston was on Conan last night (again, talking prosthetic penises, though her chat with friend Chelsea Handler was more lively) and her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show airs today. Watch a preview clip below. Aniston admits she feels guilty for helping to set up boyfriend-costar Justin Theroux so he’d have to breakdance on his first Ellen appearance. (Aniston sent over his special breakdancing shoes.) She also plays a prank on a bike salesman, which is worth watching if only for the moments line-feeding Ellen leaves her hanging and the guy says he wishes he could hit on her.  READ FULL STORY

Pro-Ellen ralliers surpass One Million Moms on Facebook

Safe to say Ellen DeGeneres has won this round. After conservative Christian group One Million Moms railed against J.C. Penney for hiring the lesbian talk-show host as a spokesperson, DeGeneres addressed them on her show, quipping, “Not that there’s anyone counting, but for a group that calls themselves the Million Moms, they only have 40,000 members on their page.”J.C. Penney stood by DeGeneres, and even conservative TV host Bill O’Reilly voiced his support for the comedian. Now Facebook fans have validated the retailer for sticking to their guns. READ FULL STORY

Bill O'Reilly defends Ellen DeGeneres in One Million Moms, J.C. Penney controversy

In a surprising move for the conventional Fox News pundit, Bill O’Reilly came to the rescue of Ellen DeGeneres, who is currently facing heat from conservative groups over her recent partnership with J.C. Penney.

On a segment on last night’s The O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly took issue with One Million Moms, the group organizing a boycott against the retailer in an effort to force DeGeneres to step down as spokeswoman. Fox News contributor and One Million Moms supporter Sandy Rios explained, “It isn’t about Ellen DeGeneres, but it’s about mainstreaming something that is not acceptable to Christian and traditional family people.” READ FULL STORY

Ellen DeGeneres addresses Prop 8 and J.C. Penney controversy -- VIDEO

Pete Schweddy may not have had anything to say to fun police One Million Moms regarding the issues they took up with him, but Ellen DeGeneres certainly did. The daytime talk show host recently faced scrutiny from the conservative group regarding her partnership with J.C. Penney as their new spokesperson. The American Family Association affiliate, which is still calling for the retailer “to replace Ellen DeGeneres” on their website, launched their campaign against J.C. Penney for not remaining “neutral in the culture war,” and that their business would be hurt because DeGeneres is a lesbian and “most of its customers are traditional families.”

Instead J.C. Penney, with the help of support from GLAAD, chose to stand by DeGeneres. (The New York Times reported that in a statement, company president Michael Francis called DeGeneres “one of the most fun and vibrant people in entertainment today, with great warmth and a down-to-earth attitude.”)

On Wednesday’s show, DeGeneres decided to talk about the issue head-on during her opening monologue. READ FULL STORY

Michelle Obama talks exercise regimen and does push-ups during 'Ellen' visit, puts us all to shame

After watching the clip of First Lady Michelle Obama impressively doing push-ups during her visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show without so much as breaking a sweat, I’m starting to think we may have to add one more totally awesome woman to this gallery. Somehow unfazed by Mrs. Obama’s enviable arms and her admission that she works out as early as 5:30 in the morning and for as long as an hour-and-a-half every day, host Ellen DeGeneres still challenged the First Lady to a push-up contest. Check out the full clip below to see who won. And then drop and give me 25. (Comments, of course! Twenty-five comments.)

Ricky Gervais talks Globes on 'Ellen': 'I was just teasing them' -- VIDEO

We’re just three days away from the 2012 Golden Globe Awards ceremony and people are still debating about who got it the worst at last year’s show? Was it some unnamed Scientologists, the gals of Sex and the City, or the typically untouchable A-listers like Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp? (Are you havin’ a laugh, Hollywood? Guess not.)

If you ask Ricky Gervais, it was, well, him. Gervais, who is returning to the scene of the crime this weekend, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about the brouhaha he caused last year. READ FULL STORY
