Bill Clinton has a 'big announcement' about Hillary...

Bill Clinton popped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday with some big news, or so host Ellen suggested.

“I understand you want to make a big announcement about your wife today,” DeGeneres said, suggesting he might reveal whether Hillary would run for president in the 2016 election. Clinton met her with laughter, and replied, “She’s the happiest grandmother in the world.” Their daughter, Chelsea, welcomed a baby girl, Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky, with husband, Marc Mezvinsky, in September.

Ellen DeGeneres gives Matt Bomer costume suggestions for 'Magic Mike 2' -- VIDEO

Matt Bomer appears on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today to promote his new HBO film, The Normal Heart – but it’s another movie, Magic Mike, that ends up stealing the spotlight (as strippers tend to do).

As soon as DeGeneres says those two little words, conjuring images of hot men in Speedos, the ladies in the audience start losing their minds. She asks Bomer — who played a dancer in the film loosely based on co-star Channing Tatum’s experience as a stripper — for scoop on Magic Mike 2.

“My understanding is it’s gonna start this fall,” Bomer says. “And I think Channing announced recently that it’s about… it’s kind of a road trip film that leads to a stripper convention.” (This, of course, leads to plenty of “woooos!” from the audience.) READ FULL STORY

Mila Kunis talks Ashton Kutcher, pregnancy on 'Ellen' -- VIDEO

Mila Kunis is having all the stereotypical pregnancy cravings, including an obsession with… sauerkraut?

In Friday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kunis spoke to DeGeneres about her pregnancy and fiancé Ashton Kutcher, who we’ve awarded Fiancé of the Year: The Two and a Half Men star stocked the couple’s second fridge with “weird food” when they found out Kunis was pregnant in case she ever had an intense craving. And, apparently, it’s proven useful — when Kunis recently told him, “I need a pickle,” Kutcher disappeared for a moment before coming back with “the most amazing dill pickle of all time.” Now that’s love.

Seth Rogen talks about his wedding invitation from Kanye West on 'Ellen' -- VIDEO

Like everyone who saw the premiere of Kanye West’s “Bound 2″ music video on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Seth Rogen was in awe. Unlike the rest of us, the very next morning he took that inspiration and began filming a shot-for-shot parody of the video with pal James Franco.

The spoof was a viral hit. We all had a good laugh — even West, much to the surprise of everyone (Jimmy Kimmel in particular). And then West invited Rogen and Franco to his upcoming wedding to Kim Kardashian.

It was a strange chain of events, to say the least. So naturally, Rogen talked about how it all went down when he stopped by Ellen to promote his new movie, Neighbors, on Wednesday.

Rogen says that once he and Franco realized the best way to parody “Bound 2″ was to re-create it shot-for-shot, they “became obsessed with getting it, like, perfect…even the lighting. I would try to nuzzle the same way [Kim] nuzzled….I got razor burn from Franco.” READ FULL STORY

Mary-Kate and Ashley talk first kisses and singing skills on 'Ellen' -- VIDEO

Spent your youth trying to decide whether you were a Mary-Kate or an Ashley? (My hand is raised.) If so, Ellen DeGeneres has a treat for you (read: us).

In an episode of Ellen that airs today, DeGeneres hands each Olsen twin a double-sided paddle. One side reads “her;” the other, “me.” DeGeneres proceeds to ask the twins questions like, “who’s messier?” (both are messy) and “who can talk their way out of a parking ticket?” (Mary-Kate). Despite their childhood singing careers, though, both refuse to tell Ellen which of them is the better singer. As a matter of fact, admits Ashley, “I don’t think we’re very good singers.” Guess we won’t be hearing an updated version of classic “Gimme Pizza” anytime soon.

Ellen DeGeneres gives sample 'Late Show' monologue -- VIDEO

Ellen DeGeneres may be a hilarious host for daytime TV and the Oscars — but late night? Maybe not so much.

Since David Letterman announced that he’s retiring in 2015, speculation has swirled about who might replace him on the Late Show — and Ellen’s name has always been near the top of the list. So in Thursday’s episode of Ellen, DeGeneres addresses the rumors by giving us a taste of what her late night monologues might be like. (She also kind of shut down the idea that she might take over for Dave: “I am flattered, but I really love doing my daytime show,” DeGeneres said, “But I feel like you don’t really know if you’re good until you try it.”)

Lindsay Lohan on 'Ellen': Actress talks frankly about Oprah and rehab -- VIDEO

Ellen DeGeneres usually keeps things light on her daytime talk show. But when Lindsay Lohan stops by on Monday, don’t expect many laughs.

In two clips previewing her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the conversation is much more serious than the typically playful chats on the daytime talker. That’s because Lohan’s latest project is the OWN docu-series Lindsay, which chronicles her post-rehab life in New York.

Lohan looks healthy, yet somewhat uncomfortable when the topics veer from the things that appear to be keeping her happy and sober: work and family. The exchange even turns somewhat confrontational at one point, when DeGeneres, quoting the actress, ask if she feels she’s not angry anymore. Watch it below:

President Obama talks 'Scandal,' 'House of Cards,' and healthcare on 'Ellen' -- VIDEO

Obama-on-Ellen.jpg

President Barack Obama earned two titles November 6, 2012: President, and the man behind the most re-tweeted tweet of all time. But, as we now know, Ellen DeGeneres and company broke that record at this year’s Oscars with their celeb-filled selfie that now holds that title. “I thought it was a pretty cheap stunt myself,” Obama told Ellen when she rubbed it in his face. At least he’s still President?

Obama went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in an episode airing Thursday to continue his media tour promoting healthcare to young people — one past stop includes Zach Galifianakis’ Between Two Ferns. But Obama didn’t only talk healthcare: We also got to hear his thoughts on his two daughters getting tattoos.

Oscars 2014: Pizza guy gets a hefty tip on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' -- VIDEO

Pizza delivery guy Edgar had a good Sunday night. He got to deliver pizza to the Oscars and received a $1,000 tip. Sorry, Lupita, but it looks like Edgar was the real winner last night.

Edgar, co-owner of pizzeria Big Mama’s & Papa’s, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday to talk about his surprise visit to the Oscars. Apparently, he was told he was going to deliver pizza to some writers and was shocked when DeGeneres led him to the stage, where he looked out at the huge audience and offered an adorable “hello!”

As if going on an unexpected trip to the Oscars and getting a huge tip wasn’t enough, Edgar also got to meet his dream lady: Julia Roberts, who he served a slice of pizza to. See, kids, dreams do come true!

DeGeneres ended the interview by pulling out Pharrell’s hat filled with money and telling Edgar she ended up collecting around $600 from the audience for his tip. Then she pulled out $400 from her pocket and handed the wad of cash to a laughing Edgar. So, how do we break into the pizza delivery business?

Once upon a time, Ellen DeGeneres made a Super Bowl commercial -- VIDEO

Love sweet, sweet advertising but hate having to sit through boring old football to get to it? You’re in luck, my friend! In advance of Sunday’s big game, Super Bowl commercials keep trickling out online — including, now, Ellen DeGeneres’s fairy-tale-themed spot for Beats Music, which the comedian debuted on her talk show yesterday.

In the ad, DeGeneres plays a music-loving Goldilocks type who sneaks into the Three Bears’ chic urban apartment. Instead of sampling their porridge or rocking in their chairs, she elects to rock out to Mama, Papa, and Cool Teen Bear’s music — though each one she tries is just a little bit off. (Just go with it.) But when Ellen discovers the smooth sounds of Beats, she’s found an app that’s just right for her — which leads to a wild dance party the likes of which haven’t been seen since “What Does the Fox Say?” (or Shrek‘s DVD extras).

And then, after premiering the clip, DeGeneres gives everyone in her audience a new smartphone, just ’cause. Happily ever after indeed!
