Kim Kardashian renews her wedding vows on 'Ellen,' and it's actually kinda sweet: Watch!

If you’re not planning on watching the TWO-NIGHT Kim Kardashian wedding special (All Right Reserved, E! Television Productions) that begins this Sunday, at least watch Kardashian renew her vows with husband of five weeks Kris Humphries on today’s Ellen DeGeneres Show. The vows DeGeneres wrote are hilarious, and, if you’re someone who’s never bothered to listen to Humphries speak, you might be surprised to find him charming and sweet. (He actually seemed moved hearing Kim start to say her fake vows — it’s like he’s actually in love!). Also, it’s fun to diagnose Kim’s short-term memory problem.  READ FULL STORY

LeAnn Rimes talks to Ellen DeGeneres about eating disorder rumors and her hubby's ex

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that LeAnn Rimes was the precocious youngster that nabbed the Best New Artist winner at the 1997 Grammys, isn’t it? That’s primarily because over the past few years, Rimes went from being a country-crossover sensation to tabloid mainstay, thanks to her relationship with her now-husband, Playboy Club actor Eddie Cibrian. (The two began an affair while working on 2009′s cheese-tastic Northern Lights, which ultimately turned into its own Nora Roberts drama and caused the demise of both of their respective marriages.)

The scandal that never-says-die got a second fourteenth life when Cibrian’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville debuted on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this week, prompting people to get invested in the story once more. In her premiere episode Glanville declared, “I was married to the number-one d—–bag of all time.”

Perhaps to make sure she doesn’t get a kicky new nickname courtesy of Glanville on The Real Housewives, Rimes appeared on Thursday’s installment of Ellen to discuss, among other things, her relationship with Cibrian. “Obviously, we made decisions that were not necessarily the right ones, but it obviously brought us to the place where we are now. And, we’re happy and we’re married. And we’ve always put his kids first. We took the kids into consideration with everything that we do,” Rimes told DeGeneres. “The way we handled it, I will always say, it could’ve been handled a lot better, but maybe we both didn’t have the tools at the time to do it properly. I think we have both come to a really good place in our lives. And, right now, I’m really at peace.” Watch the interview below. READ FULL STORY

Who was the best Emmys host of all time? Conan? Ellen? Carson? NPH?

While we have all the confidence in the world that Jane Lynch will do a stellar job hosting the Emmys this Sunday, there’s no question that the Glee star has some tough acts to follow. Just last year, Jimmy Fallon knocked it out of the park early with his Springsteen-inspired, cameo-heavy (Jon Hamm! Betty White!… Kate Gosselin?) musical number, while Neil Patrick Harris — who had his own musical number — did what he does best in 2009, emceeing the evening with his usual poise and charm. (Just as he did the Tonys!)

But were they the best hosts ever? READ FULL STORY

'Ellen': Chaz Bono and Jon Cryer talk 'Dancing with the Stars' and 'Two and a Half Men'


It was a packed day on Ellen as Chaz Bono and Jon Cryer stopped by to promote their upcoming seasons of Dancing with the Stars and Two and a Half Men, respectively. DeGeneres opened with an impassioned defense of Bono before giving way to the lighter stuff. There was talk of prosthetic penises (from Cryer!); a surprise super-celebrity call-in; Bono revealing what style he drew for his first Dancing routine; and even some side scoop on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Read all about it below! READ FULL STORY

Lada Gaga more powerful than Oprah Winfrey, says Forbes list

Forbes has released its annual list of The 100 Most Powerful Women, and while German Chancellor Angela Merkel tops it (Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is up three spots from last year to No. 2, while 2010′s No. 1, First Lady Michelle Obama, dropped to No. 8, and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann makes her debut at No. 22), the big news is that Lady Gaga, who fell from No. 7 to No. 11, now tops Oprah Winfrey, who slid from No. 3 to No. 14. The good news for Winfrey: She’s still above Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano (No. 15), Google SVP of Advertising Susan Wojcicki (No. 16), and Argentinian President Cristina Fernandez (No. 17).

A sample of others making the cut: READ FULL STORY

Could Bethenny Frankel be the next Oprah? (Ear muffs, Real Housewives. This one's gonna hurt.)

A story from The Hollywood Reporer today revealed that Bravo breakout star Bethenny Frankel is currently filming the pilot for an advice-based talk show. Neither Frankel’s rep nor the production company Telepictures (EllenLopez Tonight) would confirm or comment on talk of development. Though in a recent profile with THR, Frankel announced “I want to be on TV in a format where I can have a longer conversation with my fans rather than 140 characters on Twitter. It probably will be a talk show.”

Whether, like me, you teared up along with Frankel during the Bethenny Ever After season 2 finale or shake your fist at the sky over this acerbic woman’s sudden ubiquity, her success is a thing to marvel. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga confesses to Ellen that sometimes she 'feels like a loser'

An international superstar who has a habit of wearing leather fetish outfits and matching floppy hat brims must be a paragon of confidence, right? Wrong! Even Lady Gaga feels insecure occasionally: “Do I feel like a loser sometimes? Yes, of course I do,” she says today during her appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show. Sounds like someone’s angling to segue into an impromptu performance of “Born This Way.”

We’ll be recapping the episode this afternoon on our Music Mix blog after it airs. In the meantime, get pumped by checking out the promo below. (Here’s hoping we actually do get to see Gaga wearing Ellen-esque jeans and sneakers sooner rather than later.) READ FULL STORY

Darren Criss makes Ellen DeGeneres an honorary Warbler

Darren Criss and his finely coiffed friends from Dalton Academy made the talk show rounds this week to promote the release of the Warblers very own album, Glee: The Music Presents The Warblers. The group stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show today to perform “Teenage Dream,” the song that first had us snapping along to their sweet voices. Afterwards Criss managed to charm the pants jacket off host Ellen DeGeneres, as the two talked about his recent road trip to Coachella with costars Chord Overstreet and Harry Shum Jr., his brother (Chuck Criss of Freelance Whales), and his accidental snub of Gwyneth Paltrow. A true gentleman, he capped things off by presenting his fellow blazer enthusiast with the ultimate sign of achievement: her very own Warbler jacket. Check out the performance, as well as Criss’ (shirtless) anti-Blaine look from the music festival, below:  READ FULL STORY

NeNe Leakes calls Star Jones 'bossy, manipulative, conniving, and I'm not even being funny'

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

Jon Cryer plays Ellen DeGeneres' receptionist in sketch: 'I needed the work'

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.
