Remember that episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta when NeNe Leakes was blowing her interview with Jermaine Dupri so she started making digs about Kim Zolciak’s age? That’s kind of the same impulse that seems to be driving her during her publicity blitz for Celebrity Apprentice. She just can’t stop grinding her heel into fellow contestant Star Jones. Perhaps because she knows full well that the promise of these digs is what keeps getting her ink or airtime. (Not the most noble way to make a name for oneself.) Today on The Ellen Degeneres Show, under her perpetual guise of just telling it like it is, she pronounced Jones “bossy, manipulative, conniving, and I’m not even being funny, I think that is real, I honestly think that is who she is.” You can check out the full clip below: READ FULL STORY »

Take a look at that, eh? A different Two and a Half Men star has made a headline! After a week of nothing but Charlie, Charlie, Charlie, Jon Cryer (a.k.a. the one without warlock wings) has stepped into the spotlight, appearing in a sketch that will air on Thursday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show that pokes fun at his currently unemployment. (Following Charlie Sheen’s combative radio interviews, CBS shut down filming on the final eight episodes of the season.) In the sketch, Cryer plays DeGeneres’ new receptionist: “I needed the work,” he shrugs, shortly after DeGeneres applauds his work ethic by telling him, “You do the work of two and a half men!” Tune in today to find out if the two dance enthusiasts pas de deux to “Try a Little Tenderness.” Watch the clip after the jump.

Ellen DeGeneres' birthday show: A hot kiss from Colin Farrell trumps a surprise visit from Julia Roberts -- Watch!
• George, a nurse from Portland, Ore. who wanted to spend his birthday with Ellen, was flown to the show and not only gifted a pair of scrubs with Ellen’s face all over them — he got to be Julia Roberts’ mouthpiece as a blind-folded Ellen asked her first mystery guest questions to try to guess who it was. It was Roberts’ first appearance on the show, which DeGeneres joked was more exciting than John Jacobson, who’d been on moments earlier doing his Double Dream Hands routine. “Just barely,” Roberts joked. (Roberts also joked that she was happy she hadn’t worn khakis, and Ellen said that’s how she should have made her entrance – among his backup dancers. Seriously. Yes.) READ FULL STORY »
Camille Grammer on becoming a Real Housewife: 'I didn't want to do the show ... Kelsey wanted me to do it.'
Surprise. Camille Grammer doesn’t think she’s been accurately depicted on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. On today’s Ellen, she tells the pedaling host that being on the show wasn’t even her idea in the first place. “Kelsey wanted me to do it, surprisingly enough,” says Camille, of her now-estranged and re-engaged husband. “I didn’t want to do the show. I wasn’t ready to expose my life that way. You know, we’ve been a private couple for a long time … for the most part, we really kept to ourselves. I was surprised he wanted me to do it, too? I was like, Are you crazy? Why are you making me do this?” (As for recent rumors of her departing the show, Grammer says nothing has been decided yet.)
Check out the clip below, in which Camille tells all: READ FULL STORY »
Ellen DeGeneres is Americans’ ideal guest at a holiday cocktail party, a December vacation with George Clooney at his Italian residence would be bellissimo, and Michelle Obama is the top choice to decorate a Christmas tree. Well, I hate to be a Cold Miser, but Ellen, George, and Michelle just checked their calendars, and they already have plans on the day of your event/trip. Whenever that is. They’re booked. But thanks for asking.A survey conducted for HomeGoods stores revealed that
Since there’s no chance that an actual celebrity will drop in on you over the holidays, let’s make this more interesting and open up the conversation to fictional characters. (You never know!) Personally speaking, I’d be thrilled if David Brent of Wernham-Hogg swung by for my holiday bash. I’d plant him next to my wife’s single friends and just observe the magic. Plus, he’s a cinch to dance. I also wouldn’t mind taking a holiday to ‘America’s Playground,’ Atlantic City 1929. Gamble a bit, catch-up with Nucky Thompson, shoot someone. And if someone’s going to help decorate my Christmas tree, I insist that Ned Flanders and 30 Rock‘s Kenneth Parcell are involved.
What fictional characters would you most like to see this holiday season?
On today’s Ellen DeGeneres Show, Madonna adds her voice to those supporting gay teens and calling for an end to bullying. “I know a number of people have spoken out about it, but I feel like I need to say something. The gay community has been incredibly supportive of me. I wouldn’t have a career if it weren’t for the gay community … I have a teenage daughter and I have ongoing discussions with her about this topic, so I feel like I need to say a few words,” Madonna says, via satellite. The singer claims to knows what it’s like to feel isolated and alienated as a youth. When did things change for her? She tells DeGeneres, “It wasn’t until my ballet teacher, who was also gay, took me under his wing and introduced me to a community of artists of other unique individuals who told me it was good and okay to be different and brought me to my first gay disco and ironically made me feel I was part of the world and it was okay to be different.” How does she talk to her kids about bullying? “We talk a lot about the importance of not judging people who are different. Not judging people who don’t fit into our expected view of what’s cool and what isn’t,” she says. “Think about it across the board. The concept that we are torturing teenagers because they are gay … It’s unfathomable. It’s like lynching black people or Hitler exterminating Jews. Sorry if I’m going on a rampage right now, but this is America. The land of the free and the home of the brave….”
Madonna also issues a challenge, which she believes could be a solution: “I think it would be interesting for everybody to try one simple experiment … Try to get through the day each and every one of us … without gossiping about somebody. Without gossiping about anybody. And not only that. Not even listening to gossip. Walking away from it. Can you imagine what your day would be like? How much more free time you’d have? I also feel like you’d feel about better about yourself…” READ FULL STORY »
