And then you have Africa trips to Rwanda two trips to Rwanda your second trip the first week of February. Yes, exactly. Thanks. The groundbreaking for people who haven't seen it on the show. We've talked about it on the podcast. We've shown it a couple of times on the show. But yeah, you you there was like an official groundbreaking ceremony where where construction work has started for real on the ground on the campus of the Ellen fund. Well, I put a shovel in the ground doing that's. Beginning, and you know, a year ago or a little over a year ago. This was just an idea in your head of what do I give the woman that has everything? Yeah. And Porsche came to us. I don't know a couple of months before Ellen's sixtieth birthday and said guys, I have this sort of crazy idea. And this crazy idea has now raised a ton of money has brought incredible awareness, and we're talking about gorillas when we were talking about gorillas before as pretty amazing. You're helping. Yes. Yeah. John everything. Yeah. I mean, it's a great country and we stumbled upon not just, you know, by by going to see the guerrillas stumbled upon an amazing country with happy lovely people, especially considering they just had a genocide not that long ago, and and there's just a new work and the jobs, you're creating for people. Yeah. Just goodness. All around like like a birthday gift. Like unbelievable. Like, what does it feel like to be there and see that it was pretty overwhelming, actually because you know, it was so in my head for so long, and I really focused all of my attention on Ellen. What what does what would she want an how how can I continue her legacy, but in a different way, and how can I connect her pass to her future and give her something to look forward to? And so when I actually went there to see everybody from government officials all the way down to folks that were just getting the area cleared away of of debris and brush, just so we could have this ground breaking ceremony. I mean, it's going to change the country. It's going to change all of these people's lives, and it's going to change the country. Yeah. I mean, I was like the ju crazy Lori. When you you birthday. Sweater. I've heard that I've heard that a lot of people have said, thanks. Thanks. Are you really lost a couple of months before the birthday and said, I have no idea, and I actually had can't leave this phone call. But what do you think of this? And we were all like that is really cool. But even then like you can't. Yeah. I never we thought it was promptly hung up. And we were overwhelmed. We were like, wow, well overwhelmed like, this is I didn't think this was when she said she had a gift idea, and I was on while was that cool. I mean, I really did call you to get your opinion. 'cause it was it was a crazy idea. It was and I I really respect your opinions. And I and I really wanted to get your input you less. But. Old old. Yeah. It was that by the way, I mean, two months before the birthday gift I talked to you about it. But like two days before before I was actually gonna give her the gift I called you of an panic as I said, I don't know how to give it to her because it's so faceted. So I literally thought to myself I need a segment producer like you need a producer to help me figure out how to give her a gift. So I called you all and I said, I think I have to do it on the show. And as you know, it's not my favorite thing to do. There which is ironic because it was. On the show. I think we gave you Matt. Right. Matt right became your segment for your gift, and we're in the military other shows, I remember we had a sneak you onto the lot to come to the video for the tax. You were. So you were here you had lost your voice and Elliot's you won't even nervous though. I mean, that's the thing you came out. Unusually you hate doing the show just because you don't like doing public speaking. But you are. So she was on pills. But Ellen's face as she sort of registered what this gift was. And the way you set it up and Ellen's talking about like, you know, maybe you give me about it to be loved is to be gotten. And you get me. How about we replay that moment right now for the folks on the podcast right here. It is. Wondering why you weren't over there? And I don't know why you're here because you can't talk. I actually this is your birthday gift. A sexy voice. I am here to give you your guest. Oh my gosh. I really can't talk. So. It's your sixtieth birthday animists gift had to be really special and it had to represent who you are. And what you really care about not just now, but what you've always cared about. What you were influenced by and what has bay to the mazing person that you are today. So I combined fat and questions when we first met like who's your idol? And what would you do if you're a talk show host? So I combine that with the fact that literally guys for like the last two years Ellen has said to me I feel like I'm not doing enough. Every day almost so applaud that feather, and I caught you this kissed. Let's the have you when people asked my wife who was the person living or dead in most want to interview. Her answer is always Diane Fossey Ellen remembers reading National Geographic at home as a little girl and remembers Diane on the cover of the January nineteen seventy magazine Ellen was struck by Diane's dedication to animals, her mind, and her bravery Ellen read how in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven Diane Fossey set up a camp she called carousel can in verandah mountains in Rwanda. This is where Diane began studying several dozen guerrillas. And at that time, Diane was alone in protecting them fast forward eighteen years and the world was sad. To learn that Diane was murdered in one thousand nine hundred eighty five in her cabin care Sochi. Most of us know, Diane's work from her book gorillas in the mist, which is legendary and carried on her story. Her story is also carried on through the work of the Dian Fossey gorilla fund the fussy fund exists to ensure the survival and thriving of wild gorillas in close partnership with the government of Rwanda. But unfortunately today, they're only eight hundred eighty mountain gorillas alive on earth. Thus the work of the Dian Fossey gorilla phones remains vitally important to ensuring future been gorillas in the mist Diane wrote little did I know then that by setting up to small tents in the wilderness of the verandas, I had launched the beginnings of what was to become an internationally renowned research station eventually to be utilized by students and scientists from many countries so for your birthday Ellen. I am bringing you and your hero. Diane together by buildings the Ellen Degeneres campus of the Dian Fossey gorilla fund Ellen will carry on. Giving terminent came. Now, you join by the protection and champion of these amazing animals for note in Baretta happy birthday. But that's not all. So in summer is is in Burbank where is it? So it'll be at most incredible sensor for tourism education and for further scientific research. So. Hereby kind of that. I have also set up a foundation in your name called the Ellen Degeneres Wildlife Fund. So this is the first initiative for the fund, but you can take this. And do it do whatever you want with it. You've done amazing work elephants. And you can just continue in support every wanted. It's it's it's the best gift of always said when we got married Porsches line was it's good to be loved. It's profound to be understood. And she understands me because that is the best gift that anybody could have given me. So. What an amazing moments that. I can remember in sixteen years where we we take take the credit where Porsche left Ellen speechless. Like really we've surprised that on doesn't love to be surprised. We don't try not to surprise her a lot once in a while. We'll say, okay. If we surprise you with this. And we surprise her, you know, on air this was yeah. Yeah. As a as a talk show producer who enjoys ratings sweeps. This was it was it was. It was it was, you know, the sweetest thing that anybody could have ever done to be that thoughtful to to remember something like because it's not like we talked about it throughout the years. It's like we talked about it we first met and that that you would remember that. And and think of I mean, really just screwed me up because I I was like what? What do I because it's just so thoughtful? It's not like, you know, I can like by you Pllows and jewelry and that yet by. For those of you who don't know. It's like Ellen's Ellen's birthday is January twenty sixth. And then just a few short days later Porsches birthday on thirty first thirty first. So Ellen you received this gift from Porsche. And then it's Porsches birthday. Right. I'm what did I give you? I don't remember. You know, I don't either. Yeah. But I'm sure I loved it. I bet I bet you liked it. Yeah. It's a soom. It was gracious birthday is as better timing wise for sweeps. Oh, my really smart what we would have done when Porsche called us to say. I have this put it into this. What you think? Oh, no. It was in this week. Wasn't it? What I'm saying? We are already working on that. All right. Yes. So sorry. Taking credit? As parents we want to do our best to set our kids up for success, including making sure they excel to the fullest potential in subjects like math. That's why you need to try math nays, even whether your kid is falling behind and math or their advanced. And you want them to stay ahead. Matinees Eum will create a customized learning plan specifically for their needs. Math NASA's is the leading math only learning center for grades K through twelve there.

Now. It's your turn. Go to math, nays dot com slash Ellen today to learn more about their programs or just call eight five five nine one two math. That's math NASA's dot com slash in or call eight five five nine one two m a t h I can't believe the proximity that you guys get to guerrillas when you everybody when you go you'll see like, you're not way, I want to go. It is something that everyone must do. First of all, a safari is something everyone must do. But for sure to be that close to these magnificent majestic creatures that that have so much power that don't wanna hurt you that are just sitting there just that's that's what seems very unattainable like five. Nansha? But the more popular they've become they've they've they have the very high end luxury safaris, but they do have economical ways for you to do it. You can stay in a motel, and they'll just bring you a stuffed animal. That's exactly right. That's what I'll be doing with my family. But yeah, it's cool. It's like it seems to be on pretty much. Everyone's bucket list is like, oh, yeah. I want to go on a safari and then to see. Yeah. And it should be because I mean, it you are entering their territory. It's their world and the way that they look at you is I mean, it's it's hard to describe. I remember just before we went we had dinner, and Leo DiCaprio was at this dinner on that was a name dropping someone here in L A. Sorry. Or the name. Leo was at the dinner. But you know, in of all the things that Leo has done in his life with his foundation because I mean, he's away. Leo has dedicated himself to the environment is it's it's unbelievable. It's really an amazing. But he said one of his favorite things was this guerilla truck owners Wanda. Yeah. Wow. All right. So you may have seen this on the show. But this is Porsche's. This is the ground breaking ceremony attended by Porsche Ellen was back here. Doing shows. Thanks to us in Rwanda first week of at where it's really amazing ticket. Listen so a couple of weeks ago. My wife Porsche went to Rwanda she was there for the ground breaking ceremony for my campus that we're building for the Dian Fossey gorilla fund to help protect the mountain gorillas, and it was an incredible experience. And I want to show you more of what happened because she it was it's amazing. This thing came about because I thought what on earth? Do you give the woman who has everything? So I thought the best gift that I could give her was a way to connect her past to her future at a little girl. Now seeing that brave woman scientists who left her comfortable life to set up a tent in the Rwandan forest to save a species on the brink of extinction was transformative for Ellen's it made her see the world differently, and it made her see her place within it differently. I gave this gift to Ellen because we both love and wanted to protect gorillas after coming here. However, we fell in love with the country and its people. This is. The guys on. So this campus isn't for me or for Ellen. It's to the people of Rwanda, it is my hope that the campus will serve as a catalyst to encourage US Dream bigger to know that we too can make an impact and that all of us can become trailblazers just like Ellen and. Brian. Incredible. You know, they're endangered like there's not a lot of them. No, there's well. There was eighty and then the Reese the recent count. I think we're up to a thousand. So it's real conservation success story, which is rare. There's a thousand gladdens. Wow. Just glavin. Yeah. Yeah. All right. Wait. Okay. You know, I just want. I just want to tell all of our listeners our listeners now that that Eboni or wearing the same sweater. Yes. They are. We'll we'll post a photo. We'll post you have a very similar. It's going to be honest. It looks better on you. I don't know. If you if you. Yeah, we should post a photo. But just so, you know, Eddie's ED's wearing a lady shirt. Just so everyone's clear, and I it's wearing, you know about your Marsh, della fanny pack, and I too have a Gucci fanny pack. Remember when you got your first big screen TV life changer.

Unbelievable relationship going in were you like, oh, yeah. I love to buy and sell houses. Like, I'm to keep moving on. I'm serious. I wanna know. Like, did you was it initially? Or would you more like I want a nest somewhere, I just want to be comfortable. And because now, I know you're you love it as much as Ellen. But was that always the case? But I couldn't afford it Andy. Well, then stand that. But I'm saying as a couple did you like every time set ho baby, I found a new house. Yeah. I am not a Nestor. Okay. So that's good. I also love architecture. Right. Share your passion for art and architecture. So I like new experiences, and I I don't know. It's it just gives us something to look when I really got it was Ellen explaining you want to said like I like to go into a home. I like to do it. I like to experience it and feel it and then go to the next thing. And I kind of got that resonated with. It was kind of me mostly at first and then after a certain amount of time would be in a house. I'd look over and she's on the MLS. She's like looking like, what are you doing just seeing what else is out there? So it's kind of like a bug that you kind of catch in like, and it really is fun. And because at first she was like, I'm not I don't want to move again. I don't want to do this. And but but now it's like, I I hope we're both in the same place where we don't want to do what we want. Stay still because we have. But no one believes us when we say that everyone speaking ourself. Times. I've heard L state. This is it for our forever home forever until next week. No, I understand that. We kind of get to a place where you can't like top it. You know that that would seem to be true. And yet that's our question to you yet. It seems as though you top it every time, and as people who have worked in no new for sixteen years and have been to pretty much all of these houses every time. I'm like. Okay. Holy cow. Yeah. That last one was amazing. I don't know is that I'm going to have to act enthusiastic, and then I get there. And it takes my breath away. It is there's no acting. It is better. Every that is for. Sure true. Is there one that you wish you would've sold? Yeah. I mean now, we're fine. Because we we don't really wanna mainly live in Los Angeles anymore, and we wouldn't need that big of a house. But I think we both loved the house on Cabrillo where we got married in. Yeah. I wish we had cards for you guys. And we just lift your answers because it is. It sounds a little like the newlywed game. Yeah. Questions. No. You know yet? Could it was it was a great house? And and we were really happy there for quite a while. Yeah. Because her family it was great for a while. Because we let her family live there to save money. And I let my mother live in another one of the houses. And and then it was just like we didn't really need all of that. And I started feeling like it was just too much. So yeah, I don't like feeling like we don't want some my life. I want to say at some point. I have a compound compound. Every kid's dream deal to provide that for your family has been great. We've done that twice. We did it, you know on Woodstock, and we did it at Cabrillo. And so we buy them houses far away. They don't. To buy a house for my mother-in-law. It would be a few thousand miles away. Right now, right now, she lives a few hundred miles away, and you would buy something a few thousand miles. So now, she's wonderful. Yeah. Well. And the taste of these houses. And it's just well, that's all. Yeah. But in but she she has the greatest taste on. Believable. It's unbelie and I never leave not depressed because then I have to walk in my house. Absolutely. Why we do it? That's why I walked out. We were getting a phone call from our designer I needed to approve the carpet for our bedroom related. I approved it. But he just told me how much it was a Berber. What are you going with? Sisal. Always comfortable. Well, thanks, and and and Bernie one asking there, there's a book that Ellen put together of a lot of our homes or show, and it's an unbelievable. It's called home. I. Because they didn't ailing made so many. So they're they're going for a lot of money on EBay because because there aren't that marriage? So good. It's so good to feel so talk about like what what we learned. It's most of the houses we've lived in. It's not all of them. But we need to do another book because we've lived in several other houses, we have another book Innis, but but I also think about forty seven Hanes. But yeah, I talk about like what I learned in that house, and what what made us want to sell. And then when we move on an Ellis timing is always great perfect. Yeah. It's not like she moves into him. The Oscars leave the Oscars and move into a new house. Now, you're young you're young you're anymore. Wings. You didn't grow up with money with a lot of money. Do you think when I'm successful? Or when I'm older, I want houses, or is it something developed is it's because of that let me we we always lived in an apartment we lived in one house. But we rented it we never owned a house. We never owned a new car. My father could not make a decision to save his life. Even if he was going to buy tie. We'd have to go to every single store to see if there was another tie that was better. And then even every weekend, we went to go look at open houses, and sometimes would see the same one. If it was really good. We'd go back and see it like six times. And so, of course, I think well, this is going to be my bedroom and I'd get all excited. And then I don't know. I learned later that we couldn't afford any of those. It was just they like to go look at houses. And there was no way we could afford those houses. So I just was like, I'm, you know, I'm never going to because there was a I got the sense that he was you know, he was just fee. Fearful of money. My dad just just always thought, you know, we need to save because we'll never have enough. And and so he manifested that we never had money. We never had enough. When I first started making money. I immediately bought a house. I couldn't afford it yet. I borrowed some money. Bought a house bought a brand new car at the same time antibodies like crazy. I just gotten a show, but who knew he was going to keep going, right? But I just never I just knew I could go back to stand up. I could do something. And so I've always that's it's the impetus was because I know so cool. It's like we're clearly talking about very expensive homes, and and a life that Owen and Porsche live and at the same time Ellen comes into this show every day and gives millions of dollars away to people into like, that's what I love that balance of like being able to have this opulent life, and then at the same time, you guys are building campuses for guerrillas. You're you're bringing people on the show on almost daily basis now and rocking their world. And that's when I was in Canada this weekend, the guy said that he total it. We've we've given away like ninety seven million dollars. Yeah. That's ninety seven million dollars the show. So we'll I remember when it really started when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. That's I remember you coming to work in tears going, and it all just seems so big and so overwhelming, and it's just so so Ellen to go we have to we have to help like we have to we have to do something. I remember thinking what can we do like look at this city? It is under water. What can we possibly do and just slowly? But you just that that you don't ever Ellen. Never looks at a problem like that. And goes, it's too big. I'm just gonna go another way you just don't do that. It's just an Mary, and I were lucky enough to go to New Orleans right after Katrina without when we went six months after we went. Yes. Unbelievable in August. And you guys went and may and we went to the house Ellen took us to her original house, which was so wild, and we also focused on New Orleans and kept the focus on New Orleans for years like shosha don't do that other hurricanes happened other stories come along. Like, it was just amazing the way you just wouldn't let it go until you felt like it was, you know, ready to to to not need our help in that way anymore. It was and the same with Puerto Rico and the same with Houston whenever you know. And the same thing. I mean, I know people don't really care so much about montecito because they think it's mostly a very wealthy town. But it it's not it's not true. There are a lot of people that aren't millionaires that live there, and as we speak we're evacuated again, there's evacuation orders all because of the burn areas are still bad. So everyone's evacuated again. So all these people who you know, you just can't settle down. Every time it rains, they have to find a place to live take their pets. Take their kids not knowing if you have a place to go back to every single time. And that's a scary. You'll displaced constant. Yeah. Yeah. Very very unsettling anyway. So as someone who doesn't like to speak in public like you said, how long did it take you to do that speech was perfect? You did in Rwanda. Well, thanks. Well, you know, I think I'm actually getting used to it. As I go. I'm kind of forced into these days Nowy. It's not that. I was it's not that. I hated public speaking so much. I just didn't like doing talk shows because when I started out in my career the first job, I really had was ally. Mcbeal and I was closeted. And I knew that I had this terrible secret. And I was just nervous every time, especially I did, you know late night talk show. I was just really worried because there was always a little bit of a rumor that followed me around. And so I went with that heaviness that secret. So I was always on guard, and I always tried to over prepare, and and make sure that no one ever said in a thing, and that's gonna. Secret, terrible stressful. So I think I just you know year after year of that. And believe it or not I actually did get asked the question live on the view. No when I was closeted. And the strangest thing happened the first time and last time in the show's history the show went black. It went for whatever reason. There was a bomb scare and the stage manager rushed out and pull the plug and it went to black so but they question. Yes. Because my yeah. My I was with my buddy gets host. Dream came true much name, Kim Chiu. Yes. But I was with. I think it was joy Bejart's saw me at. That's why I was with. Fleetwood MAC concert like two nights prior with my ex girlfriend, and she started to talk about it. And then they pulled the plug. So so yes, but I your your prayers were answered. Steinem on four. It's amazing talk shows on I have this history. But of course, it's very different doing this show doing Ellen show 'cause Stephen more pressure. Yes. Ed. Remember, I remember, I think we all do remember the day Ellen came in close the door, and like was lit up and said, I've met someone. Yeah. And told us about abortion, and it was such pure joy. It really was. It was like she was like a little cha- like closing the door up to tell you. She couldn't wait shake. It was so exciting. We were going to I was going with my ex girlfriend to your baby shower. That's right. That's right. I was just I was physically ill. But I couldn't I couldn't keep it in. I couldn't keep a secret in and I couldn't like, and I just wanted to leave and get home. And and you know. I I, you know, I remember that day very, well just because it was our baby shower, and then the next week when you came in and sort of told us, everything it all just an I remember very memorable house. Was there and she was gone because it was a long drive to live way out there, starring rain. Absolutely pouring rain that day. Guess it was now all these years.

Ellen on the Go

55:07 min | 2 years ago

Chris Hemsworth, David Spade

"Hi, it's Ellen Degeneres. Welcome to my podcast. We're gonna listen to some of the best moments from the show, and it's going to be hosted by four executive producers that I love happy listening Ave episode of Ellen on the go. Chris hemsworth. My boyfriend tries our game pitch. Please David Spade crashes a wedding with selene Dion. And you're gonna love that story Ellen meet seven teachers from the same Kansas school are all pregnant the exact same time. I know we play around of bay versus millennial and the podcast wouldn't be complete unless we discussed Kevin's incredible inability what yes. For the first time. It's you Kevin to, you know, read it, we're discuss Kevin's incredible mind boggling insane inability to catch anything I hate crime, which is a felony. Oh now, it's taken us. I can't catch. To Ellen Melissa. Second. I'm Ed glavin. Andy lasts ner. And I'm nauseous. Gerry's pregnant can't catch berry. Are not. Are not associated with each other. Mary also gay Mary can catch. That's very well there. They're very well. My brother for years older than I am was a soccer player at school. I was I played other things other than soccer. And this is this is time. We'll tell you about this. We had a coach years ago who said to my brother Connolly, you're good with your feet and your sister will she's good with their hands. Really? Time for every time. I heard that at the time. It was just a perfectly fine thing to say. Track or something to I did not detract. I played volleyball basketball and softball. They didn't have track in the big city school that I went to. Basketball has a Ford. All nice. I was I played for the YIF H L, the sheep of floor Hockey League. Eight teams in that. True story. How'd you guys do we won the championship one of the four years that I play, but very nice? What happened was there was only six Jewish schools. Right. We let into non-jewish goals to play with us which ones Hastings on the Hudson. Jer love hand Yonker something really remember. Yeah. Ed sports careers to say fetus. Vetus brief sports career. Yeah. It was more of a townie sports career than that a school sports career plate mainly the thing. I could play well with baseball. I could hit a baseball. Really, well, but I had unique combination of being able to hit really well. And then being unbelievably slow, right? So. Those two things went great. I had the distinction of being the only player that I knew at the time to break a finger in a soccer match. Not the goalie. But I thought that was a stupid rule and the ball was getting past me. And so I stuck my hand up. I was for today. Should we time out another hate crime? Where two minutes in the puck known asked me if I played a sport. Oh, Kevin come on. All right. Just. Did you play? Kevin. What's? Play. I was on the B-team of of basketball in grade. Nice. Which was basically anyone who didn't make like if you didn't make the team right here on the beach team right me into wheelchairs, but I won them in my kidding, no to one the mighty spirit award, which meant I clap better than everybody else. I think so you think you. Winning. You had good spirit. So he's an award-winning. All right. So you Clapper can clap requires hand eye coordination of putting two hands together. What Jason Gallus another head writer on the show knows this. If you want to throw something at me, there's two steps that require are must be done before you do it one to say my name aloud Kevin then say, I'm going to throw something you need to be prepared. Yes. Preparation. Everyone likes a little preference. How this all happened in the meetings on Fridays? Yes. My special job is to DVD's in. Yes. I sit right next to the DVD player because we still use DVD's at the show. That's true. Ed glavin member the podcast threw me a DVD across the room across from me. He kinda did. He didn't. And what happened? I just looked like a sealed trying to just can't catch, you know, those dinosaurs that you have the little hands. And you didn't know what they were for Kevin catch. If I were to line up right now, there's six of us in the right? No offense to the folks in the room who aren't active members of the podcast relying, the six of us up and go who seems to be maybe the most athletic in the group, right? Kevin. Kevin is a big work around or muscles. It's a little point. Yeah. Kevin works out at the one brothers. Jim Jim here in for a few dollars a month. You're right. You're allowed to work out here. I asked him yesterday. Are there ever celebrities there? He goes actually, I've been working out next to Michael Douglas for. Well, I think that that was. Crazy. Yeah. Yeah. What other celebrities? Have you seen it to Jim? I saw that FRANZ brother. His how'd, you know, his brother? I'm in love is Ephron. Looks like when you when you're Zach Ephron, STAN. Wow. That might be worked out at the gym briefly. Thanks, rasa. Now, that's not not have. And when we're not taping shows, right and never seen. Anybody? When was the last time you went to that gym? August. Wow. Because when we're not doing shows, and we're in the office. I go to the gym. Okay. I don't know if you can notice on the I would assume you can Kevin has gigantic arms. He is a weightlifter. He's very fit, and and they're worthless. Yeah. Oh, well, this is the problem. We talk about ourselves. And I think we should have guest today. I agree. Kevin. Can you book anyone? And would you come up with? I Betty as Michael Douglas. Please welcome Mike cast and didn't want to be part of it. No the truth is people are loving when we occasionally have someone telling you when you go skiing and they come on. This is there's been a letter writing campaign a lot of people, and what they like is they like to meet different members of the staff in here about what they do for the show because they've heard enough from us already it seems it seems like they've had enough of us. So Kevin who do we have today, we have one of our human interest producers who is so insanely talented and also nice, and she will explain first of all what a human interest. We're just call her beloved she's beloved by the staff, please welcome Tracey gold. Hi, Tracy, Tracy can go have a seat. Microphone. It's not as upscale is the bachelor recap show. Gosh, I'm so nervous. You're you're one of the stars of the bachelor recap show. Everyone knows you ready. View. Yeah. They probably know you from our bachelor recap show, which you can find on Ellen tube. And Tracy is also as Kevin mentioned a human interest producer. So before we go further. Explain what human interest producing means. So I always say that pretty much any non celebrity you see on the show like any like real person comes in contact with my department has something to do with exactly like take someone like ago, not a real person. Betty sample. And and and it is in my opinion, one of the hardest jobs in television. Yes. Celebrities, you know, you can count on them. They're going to be here. They're going to get on the phone when their publicist tells you to plan out segments at cetera when you're dealing with human interest people you really a are competing with a lot of other shows when you hear a great story. So you gotta get them. You got to convince them, and then be you know, you really have to hand hold these people to make them the best you can on the show. And I think it takes a lot of skill takes a lot of heart and warmth, not that it doesn't to be a segment producer of celebrities. But and around the clock dedication to those stories when they break like we often hear about barrel stars before anyone else because and and and that whole department are constantly combing and searching and looking for the next cool story without a doubt. So that's all we have for Tracy. Thank you. For. How did we find you, Tracy? How did you end up at our show? I started as a PA not just John show. And I started in the P office, you know, most fun time and worse time as a PA most fun time. Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. That's getting Ed coffee. That was fun. Yeah. This fine. You're really used on the show or. Juban scared. I got was when I first started. I had just started. And you guys had Ellen was in a bunny costume at the bottom of the stairs. And I was certainly not the target because nobody knew who I was at that time 'cause I had just started. And I walked down the stairs. She didn't even like, boo. 'cause she was like, you know, this is a PA. I'm going to let it go to your thing. And I got scared just from her being there the bunny being there every time round Halloween. We show a montage of staff scares. Yes. And Tracy's always the one that you see who falls on third. Members who fall, Tracy falls and Carl Hart just drop like their legs, go out. That was your body laughs. But me. Everybody laughs an I commiserate with Tracy like getting Zaidi for tracey's. You're very skittish. I am like we can all be onstage together. And we're about all to walk up to see Ellen at during a commercial break. And if you get too close to Tracy as you're ready to all walk up. She she gets very gentle and kind of recently we were onstage in the break. And I was kneeled down next Ellen going over something and somebody was mopping the floor next to just there was a must have been a smudge and the peripheral of the mob.

Let's let the. Listeners know who Macy Hensley is by playing a clip of her oldest is a little throwback of Macy Hensley meeting and asking couple of questions of former President Barack Obama. Mason.

He went off to be a cowboy did, you know that I say teddy Roosevelt's one of my favorite president. So he lived a pretty exciting life than me. So you you have questions for the president. This is a big moment. You can whatever you wanna ask. What's your question? Is there really a book a secrets that's a secret? Like, what kind of secrets would you want to know? What would you what would be in the book secrets are real? Well, what do you think? Well, after watching this TV show, I think aliens are probably real, okay? Well, which TV show was that. I think it's called nyc America's book secrets. There you go. The seems like somebody spilled the secrets. I thought that was classified. There's a TV show. Yeah. Well, the truth is may say, we we we haven't actually made direct contact with aliens yet. But when we do I'll let you know. Okay. Yeah. What else? So don't even have to have secret service. No, bone sunny. They're on their own. But usually we don't let them out of the White House unless they're with us.

This story seemed insane to me. It seemed so hilarious about the the elementary school elementary school in Kansas is like this school has fifteen teachers that is correct seven of them are nuns. Seven of them became pregnant all around the same time. Yes. Her act Tracy came across the story or someone in Tracy's department. We gonna pregnant story and you brought this story to us. Tell us a little bit about these people. Like, you said there are teachers at a school if there's three hundred kids fifteen teachers, so there's about twenty kids per class, and we saw it was kind of getting gaining national attention in the news that there are these seven teachers our pregnant around the same time. And so we thought whenever we see stories in the news like that we call find out more about the story, and they were huge huge Ellen fans, which most people are call on them. But they were like I mean had amazing stories kind of to each of the individual wines about their connection with Ellen. And so we thought they'd be fun to do something with some rise, especially with our mother say show, and you had a unique idea. So not all of these pregnant teachers are first time moms, but we wanted to invite them to the mother stays show. So we had a dilemma because the audience. This is first time expectant moms. And yet we wanted to reward these women, but they aren't first time expectant mom. So you had an interesting solution to that dilemma, what was your solution? Well, there's a place that's not technically in our audience. But that's in our studio that was kind of lawless anything can happen, and that would be the sky box. And so I picked to you people. What do we put them in the sky box because there's no rules. Rule for the studio audience, but there's no rule for the sky box. I thought that was fantastic coming. So he's coming to play a little clip of their. Yes, sir. You ago this photo of seven teachers from oak street elementary in Goddard Kansas went viral because they were all pregnant at the same time. We gathered all of the teachers in one room since pregnancy is obviously contagious there. So let's see them. Where are they? They're they. Okay. I didn't want to risk catching it. So instead, I thought I would. Pop up on their screen and surprise them. All right here, we go. Ladies I excuse me. Hi. I depressed. Nobody have baby right now. How's it going? All right. Who is who's who's do the soonest who who's kind of ready to have baby right now. When are you two? What is your name? Winter when are you due Tuesday? Like what? I know in Tuesday is okay. So. Just take some depress. I don't wanna see anything. That'll I don't wanna see that. So here's my question. Do your husbands all know each other. I was just wondering if like one night they were all out together and said, hey, I got an idea, let's all the home, and you know. Terror, Katie where are you too? I'm tara. I'm katie. Okay. So you actually already had your babies when were they born we had our babies actually within twenty four hours of each other at the same hospital like two rooms from each other. So they were born on the twenty seventh and the twenty eighth. That's amazing and just one quick question. It's all different fathers, right? All right. All right. Katie you were still teaching the day before you gave birth is that right? Yes. Mrs Miller was really hoping somebody's water would break at school. I was going to go long as I could. And I had can checks every five minutes apart. But I was just steetch ING thrills. And then I sent my kids to lunch and recess and while they're resource. I thought my water break. I laughed text. My long-term seven said, I need you to come. Longterm sub just should have been next to you the whole time. Anyway, that's that's great. So they'll be here for the mother stay show. So that's that's exciting. You could be to hashtag Ellen Ellen mother of mothers. What else can we ask Tracy about? Where are you from originally, Texas, Dallas? Yeah. Yes. Who's your favorite executive producer? Present company excluded. Yes. Darren right. Derek? I love all there. No, I have such a special relationship with each of you have ninety more. Yeah. Right. Sabbatical from the drinking. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But that's why you have the shakes. She david. Mary scares me. We're best friends. We're best friends. You me, gene? You're kind of best friends talk about Judy assume, Tracy is a Jew from Texas. We talk about hockey little bit a little because the ours voice with Ed you in talk football about Tracy's like she's she's not just a Cowboys fan. She is a Cowboys fan but not just a Cowboys fan. She is a she's a knowledgeable football fan Chino's football. Yeah. Makes me very happy trees. And are you still a runner? Do you still run? Are you taking a break from the running? I've taken a break from the running gene in Iran ah half marathon before her wedding, which was like two years ago. And that was the last race. I did really. Yeah. Because my knees started hurting your so tall. I played volleyball. Yeah. The mega bestseller that has enthralled millions of readers at gentlemen, in Moscow by a more tolls buzzes with the energy of numerous adventures, love affairs and twists of fate raves. The Wall Street Journal Entertainment Weekly calls a gentleman in Moscow gorgeous while oh, the Oprah magazine calls it irresistible. Now in paperback. This transporting novel tells of count the Rostov a man who has ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel. He can't leave his hotel. You won't want to a gentleman in Moscow now available wherever books are sold. I have a question for Tracy. But I I need to talk about the total package. Chris hemsworth. Oh my God. Like, literally, my favorite guests. We have on. Yeah. And we were he was on for a long time this week. Yeah. So there's a ton more than we can play for you here. But you have to watch the show on your DVR because if you watch it you also get to see his face, which is unlike an podcast, which is literal perfection. And so his, you know, look here and see or does soon as he comes out everything just goes, foggy for you everything else. Blurs? I just see him. You just see I love him so much like that Instagram affect happens in his brain. And Jesse you guys know Ed is built himself a control center. In the control room that yes is comical if you were to step back or so in it. We don't have time to look he's in charge of the pictures. He's in charge of the temperature. He has different canvas things he can do. But he's got this whole library of pictures of Chris Hemsworth right there next to sit right next to put Armley. I don't care I'm playing Brixham balls. But that one get to the surfing one get to the likes of his arms are insane. Because nobody fat none. He's bodies where and you'll you'll probably understand. I mean, I've seen in a million times never in my family. But he's got one of those bodies where like he sees hip bone. Oh, I love. Yeah. It's just it pisses me off anyway. So in this clip, we're going to play for you. We'd played our game pitch, please. Because he has a new fitness app called center without the and TR. Yep. And he was selling a box of Mary's rash cream, which we really do Sal in the riffraff room. Works. It's so he he can't see what he's selling right Ellen thinks of a ton of questions to ask him. He asked to act like he knows what it is and endorse it and sell it to the people watch it. Yes. So here's that what happens is this is a product that you will be selling as if you're on QVC and you'll be telling us. All about. Okay. So tell the audience first of all do you use this yourself? Every morning noon. Not. Yeah. What is the right amount? Do you think as much as you'd like the mole use them? Abend official. It is better you feel and what does the area you would apply this to mostly under the arms? Right. All the areas. Right. But you feel comfortable putting it do you? Do you think that you can do any activity with it on? Does it limit you in any way? No, no, no. You could try with the with the. You could get intimate with. When you say you get intimate with it. So your partner it does not your partner's going to be fine with probably via. My wife has three them. That's great. That's not to get too personal you and your wife use this while you're being intimate. You. Apparently. Yeah. Good. Why did you start using it in the first place in order to just lack of intimacy? You know? Bouma bond and connection, right? There was something missing. Right. The laws. Okay. What? Celebrities. Besides yourself would benefit from using this over Christmas. It. Robert downey. I think scholar Trotta the didn't lock it. She didn't like it. Maybe she didn't need it. She didn't need is. Right. Right. So. What could what could go wrong using it? What are the just the side effects that could how? I mean. Trouble. Trouble sitting down and sleep. That's what I thought you'd say from having trouble sleeping. I use it. And if I'm feeling tied the moaning deuce rub it on my face. Right. I wanna know. That's good. I guess let's take a look if you wanna come around and see what you've been selling. Everyone going. Mary. Intimate right? You. Mary. Hi, I mean, I'm what is it like to be standing fifteen feet in front of Chris Hemsworth, while he's selling your rash cream? Unbelievable. It's hilarious. It was both one of my prouder moments. And I was mortified oh my gosh. It was so funny. And then Claudia who's been a guest on this podcast with furious at me because I didn't then get a picture of myself. Oh, Chris and the rash gray. I would have been and maybe that would have been Instagram where the I know I know what what is it will. So we're doing we're giving away tickets to the mother's day show with the hashtag Ellen mother of mother's mother and fisheries he gold. Okay. Great. I think she'd give away a subscription to Chris Hemsworth app center. Yeah. Good idea one year. Now, let's go to two years. We're in the first year of our podcast. I don't know if we had. I will say will steal it from the show when no one's here. Listeners of the podcast. Nobody controls the budget of the podcast. Do we have to do to says? Yes. A way to lose weight and getting shape really get fit get fit with with Chris. And also watch Chris Hemsworth on on your phone or whatever. Or however the app works. Exactly. Sure. What should they do at hashtag? Chris has a giant Hemsworth giant Hemsworth? This happens in the podcast. Also, a little lawless. I dunno. Chris Hemsworth Hemsworth. Snow? I like Chris has giant Hemsworth. Type that and you could win. Maybe we'll get a few people that. Yeah. That's a good idea. We'll see how it goes. All right, Tracy, if more than one person asks. Yeah. The third question. I get most often about this show is are the people truly surprised when Ellen CISCO's or FaceTime. Yes, they off your department. That is our department. Yeah. Has happened. So we li- is a sensual truth of the matter. I don't want to say too many diesels. Because what if somebody's listening somebody? We want us apprise. Well, also, I think it's important to remember as many people as we say, you're going to talk to a producer. And then they get Ellen ten times more than that only get the producer, correct? Right. So we're ninety percent of the time not lying and a lot of times when we say you're getting a producer. That's who you get correct. And Ellen is a producer. So sometimes it does technically not ally. But yeah, I think that that's something because we can't always explain they think they're gonna talk to a producer and then Ellen shows up. So it looks like they're set and ready to talk to somebody. And you're probably a little confused, but they have absolutely no clue that they're about to talk about scared. It's not going to prize them. With every day. Really? Oh my gosh. 'cause I wanted to go. I mean, it just takes that one person that just maybe catches on a little much. But the thing is even if they're not surprised the fact that they're getting the talk to Ellen typically makes for a great reaction. What? So even if they have a little idea usually still hopefully, get a good reaction. All right. So that's the third question here usually has I'm gonna I'm gonna guess with the first two questions is Ellen is nice as she there every person. Right. She really then there's then there's a tie for number two. Okay. Say is it really fun to work there? Because it looks like you guys must have so much fun that. No one's ever asked that. Or what do they fall into in the network? Oh, that's a good one. That'd be my number one game of games question. Yeah. You know? I get a lot. Maybe it's because I'm always drinking is the outlet hall real. I get that question. A lot always drinking. You are always tricky question. I'm in bed. Answer's always. Yes. Kevin would never fake drink ways. What a waste that would know. On the show Ellen. Let's really also surprising. They've kept in would be always drinking that much out the hall. So try what you say fifty fifty on that. Yeah. I get the question all the time. Yeah. That's what people. Yeah. So you start using eight see the Nate. Yeah. So what was it like joining a show halfway into its run? Was that overwhelming that easy? I wasn't what you expected. I think it was just like a whirlwind. I came straight from college. I literally grown up here. Like, you are family. I went to college yet. But that's why I mean, I literally started. Yeah. University of Texas hook him, but longhorn's. Yep. Exactly Horn's hook him. I think the hardest part was getting to know learning all the people in what everybody does that such an important part of knowing who to ask the question to. Oh, that's that's that's a perfect segue into a question that I've always had is can you explain to me and to everybody else listening? What does Andy do? That's a very fair question. Go ahead. Well, he. Makes really funny. Comments in our production meeting when you're not there. He leads it. He there's a lot of good feedback that people like when I take over is that right? They run a meeting overtake the meeting. Literally discussions. Many people are saying many people are saying Trump. There's a lot of people saying Andy will say is hilarious almost as hilarious as David Spade. Who is just here. Oh my God. Like one of his best. But every time there's something about him that I just could listen to him for me too. So my sense of humor funny. He so self deprecating under his breath. He was backstage. An Ellen was doing an interview not for the show for I forget who it was four. But it was it was a serious interview that she was doing about her life and some stuff that she and stuff like that. And David Spade was watching it backstage and turned to his producer, Johnny and said boy this bit is bombing. She need to get in there. He was so funny, and he has a new late night talk show on comedy central. So Ellen again, Ellen put him to test to see what his first question would be a bunch of celebrities in here in the south that went you're gonna sit there. I'm gonna show you the first face that comes up you're going to right away. You're going to have to ask this horrible. Yeah. Let's the buzzer. It turns to the next person. So anyway, so they'll be a picture of a celebrity and then start a conversation. They they sit down and you'll say something. All right. Your head. Okay. Go. Oh. Your hair's different. And why are you on my show? Probably not a good idea for you. May on say it's us again, you wanna slow dance I did with Ellen at a party while ago. She was really good at it. Chiquita banana who's this? Oh. Carney b where's the rest of the alphabet? Cam. So this is what you look like in person. Djalo? Why are you taking yourself? I'm interviewing you. Tom. What why vegetables what? Why tomato? Why not cantaloupe? Justin. What do you do about split ends? We have the same hair. These are short interviews, by the way on the this is the guy from the bachelor. Can I have your spot and bachelor in paradise? I guess you're not going. Oh, lady Gaga. Always good to say. Well smith. Tell me about bad, boys. Three. I'm hearing good stuff about. This year lost now. I think you're in the wrong room the brunches down the hall of the four seasons. Hey, you believe I'm seventy four. Serena great. I I used to play tennis. And I would challenge to a game. I love it the music just stop. I don't why perfectly. I don't know why they even pick that music for like to interview. It's made me ten. Yeah. Of course, is that how it is don't ever play that music while you're interviewing which knock off what? Guide. It's so funny. It's just fun to watch how his brain works. Like, he's a big bachelor fan. He is he really he watches everyone. And he comments on his Instagram. I'd love to get him in the cube. We've got to we we got a book him for the bachelor retail the he's like literally a massive fan. Larry, oh, how about that? We gotta get him into look look who's looking more. You know? He also talked about a car show. He went to his poor mother. Oh my God. That was very very funny. And historians were so funny. We play we play a lot of it. Sure. Why? Not. All right. So you went to a car show recently with your mom. I did how did that come up is she being car fan? No. But what happens if I go? Visit narrates ONA love, and my mom, and then sometimes I don't know if you've done this or you've had you go into town for one day, and then I don't have time to see your, and then I feel guilty because I'm there, but I I just went into this bear Jackson car auction show 'cause I sort of like cars and stuff. So then I just called I felt bad. So I go I would hang out. I'm just going to car. You don't wanna go. Oh, that sounds fun. So I know she doesn't want to go at all. But she went with me. And then I took me trust the cameras filmed her, so we'll show a little clip. I don't know if it's funny, but this walking around the car show. Okay. Jackson cars show. Hey, mom. She's going to be the star today. Jay Leno, just bid on this one. Hey. Thirty two more miles till the front. Let's go mom pick it up. Shuts because I can zoom down to grow beep at the gals. It's too high to get in short mom, can you lay on the ground, and Tom and your back to get in now. Now, I'm kidding. Oh, this one. Yeah. Lost my. Oh, you did. Fine. Information. That was ten hours condense new, man. Yeah. But now do you buy cars when you're there? I bought cars in there, and I have a four total three or crummy ones. Nice. But like Leno. You know, Jay has got that. I went out to see his garage and probably three hundred he's got like an airplane hangar full of car getting another hangar full of more cars and. Wow. And you know, because it when even used to go there tonight, we take a different one every day. Right. You see him on the four. Oh five and nineteen twenty six unicycle. Didn't work, but I just have the regular ones now. But so far so good. Let's talk. I saw on on Kimmel you you crash that wedding with selene Dion. That will those people must be looking out. What you did? Yeah. We did the quick story. Was we always in Las Vegas doing the Mirage and Kimmel was there because hey, we're doing this bit you want to run over because we're going to prize people their wedding. So they basically he was performing and hotel in theater, but the chapel was like backed up to it because we'll just run over, and they don't know anything. So I said we're gonna ruin someone's real wedding. And because I don't know who knows if they're fans are not. So it was two people that were in the army. They were getting married and Kimmo went in there and busted in and said, can we can I officiate and they said, yes. And then, of course, Dumbo comes in a long drink destroy anyone objectives wedding. I go. Then I I do my crummy jokes. And then they said, hey. For the first dance. Do you have a singer and they go. No, he was we got some local talent and then Celine. Dion came in. And with all the smoke behind her. Yeah. It was really fun. And so it went pretty well for those crazy bits. But before we did it, you know, it's a secret. So we're all hiding behind this crammed in this little tent, and I go into it insulin's in the corner. But I don't know where so I said, oh, there's all these secret service people there, you know, she's really rich. So they're around, and then I go, hey, can I say hi to her real quick producing the guys? What's that? And I always added eagle, and then they go. All the way back then it comes all the way back to me news. Yeah. Okay. Come on. I go in and I go, and of course, I get nervous. So of course, I grabbed silly again. Do we're gonna kill it today. And she goes, okay. She's French Canadian. Then she goes it gives me the side kisses. And then I go. Hey pipes. Rusty ready to nail it. I want your game. And she goes, I'll sing good. Yeah. All right. I go. Everything's riding on this for me. I need you to knock it out of the park. This is it for me. I got all ships. And she goes she didn't know what was going. Then the guy's like, maybe we need to maybe. They need you front. So anyway at all worked out, and I think it was really fun for the couple. Yeah. It was great. It was this fantastic. And they were they seemed very calm, but you know inside. Yeah. When they went to a commercial, then they went more bananas. But have a cellini on your what did she was so good? Yeah. To sing. Awesome. Okay. There's some of the some of the information in that clip. I didn't need to know. Exactly. All right. So David if you're enjoyable the dissipates mom lost your version on the hood of a car. Shocking part of it. I found it shocking when they said it, Tracy, what do you wanna talk about before you have to go. Oh. Are we going to miss podcast once the baby's born? Yep. And you've named it. Yup.

We're gonna listen to some of the best moments from the show, and it's going to be hosted by four executive producers that I love happy listening on today's episode of Ellen on the go. Chelsea handler opens up about her attraction to Robert Muller, Meghan Malala. Gives us a brief history of kissing Hossan. Min Hodge teaches us all the right way to say his name, Grayson chance shares his inspiring story about coming out and Ellen and twitched plan. Epic game of survey says what I'm Mary Connolly Howdy. I'm coming Olah, Ed glavin, and I'm Andy last ner hostal and the and friends. Welcome everybody. Happy thursday. Happy thursday. So I just have to say that my daughter my daughter, Katie. Yeah. Seven years old is out on spring break in his here today at the show, right? Very big deal for very excited, and we had a nice time. She's run around at a great time and often sometimes I have to put some things way in my office before one of my kids comes it. Just like if there's things around that. I don't have to get into it. And I thought I was good. I didn't think there is any problem. So Katie had to use the bathroom. I'm lucky enough to have a bathroom. Where's this Jason to my office? And there's a closet in my bathroom. Oh boy. She opened the closet and finds three really good gifts that I had been storing there for her wrapped. Wow. And did she get like mom a mystery Hatchimal mum a rainbow something? LL? She I said we're going to have to find a way for you to earn these you you can have one today. So she opened up one. But we're at the end day God at the end of our day. And she just. So cute, though, she's cute. She's pretty she led me to emoji stickers that. I put her to work. Of course. I understand. That's good. She likes she needed to deliver. This Tracey gold. She goes, I don't know who that is. I said, well, I'm going to explain who she hasn't. She goes. I don't know where she is. You're gonna find her. She goes this morning. She said I'm excited to go to the Ellen generous show. And I go great. It's d- generous. And she said, we'll I like just saying Ellen generous show. And I said, well, that's like if somebody called you Katie on ily, she didn't like that. All right, Mary. Yes, sir. Let's talk about Chelsea handler and her Chelsea handler longing for Robert Chelsea Chelsea handler told our producer that she had an affection a sexual attraction to special prosecutor. Yes, Robert Muller's, and when being serious about well, that's what Ellen wasn't sure. Ellen Ellen sort of heard. This wasn't sure. And then asked Chelsea on the air, if in fact that was real or just sort of a joke, and we all learn together that it in fact was very real. She really wants to deflowered him. To a level. I wasn't expect. Well, you know, look, the the truth is the truth. She's she can't get over it. She says she has daddy issues. Right. She she has a new book out in the title made me laugh. The title was life will be the death of me, and you too, and it's she has a really interesting conversation with Ellen Taylor. Right. And here she is talking about about Ellen and David Letterman, and the chemistry that they had when they're on the show, very, very honest. Rudely honest relationship, we do we do have a good relationship. I think which I think all relationship should be brutally honest. I agree. Yeah. A lot of people don't like that though. They don't like your honesty. So you have to make sure you save it for the people who actually are interested in hearing it just stranger. I don't I don't save it for it. I do it with everyone. I just feel like you just why do you want to guess how I'm feeling you know, how feeling if I'm honest with you. So right. Sure. That was not I'm so let's talk about your love life right now. You're in influx. I read the book, it's a great book, and it's very very revealing. And but you you were looking forward to the mullahs report. And now, what's I'm sexually attracted to Robert Muller and Alex plane why I have a daddy issue. Because I talk about that in my book, I've been attracted to older men for quite some time the problems as I get older, then they get really. So you have to kind of condense that margin and slimmed-down and just thin the herd, but I was willing to make an exception for Robert Muller because he's in his early seventies. From what I can tell underneath his business attire. There is a six to eight pack still so any man in their seventies. He was a marine if you can keep your act together for that long. I wanna talk about penetration. I mean, what you just did felt very judgy. You know what I mean? Not at all. But you know, what I have to be honest when I was reading it. I didn't know if you were being sarcastic. Or if you really meant it just like when you texted me when Letterman was on you said, you could see you could feel the sexual chemistry. And I didn't know if that was sarcasm or you really thought that me and Letterman had sexual chemistry. Was that sarcasm where do you think? Well, now, I think it was sarcasm. Why said the sexual chemistry between you David Letterman was palpable. Yeah. I watch you at the nail salon. Yeah. Yeah. I worked there now. Yeah. Yeah. But really I so so you're attracted to more. And now, what do you feel? I'm not gonna give up on him. I have to read the report to give my report on Bob Muller. So I am still hoping I know he's married, and I respect that. But that doesn't mean I don't have the feelings. I have. And and I just wanna communicate you know, what I mean. Right him, preferably. But if I can't communicate to him directly. I'll do this on TV until he contacts me. Okay. I doubt he will. I mean, this could push him away. Dave's. Oh, I saw a big picture of him. Go up there. Yes. Yes. See, and I also Google Tim one night. I was with my best friend Mary McCormack. And sometimes we size about what he drinks when he gets home at night. How many ice cubes is got Hugh? Yes. Scotch one ice cube ID whitey's or boxers? But and and she also has those feelings for him. So we're not alone. There's a whole community. I think of Mullah lovers. It's just you too. I mean, you could say that, but you're not attracted to men anyway. That's that's not true. I'm tracked into man manual. Tractor to God a lot Ryan Gosling. Justin timberlake. I mean, Andy. Good point the element in that clip. You can't tell tone in text. It's caused several fights with me and my best friends. Oh, yeah. They need to fix that. Texting is texting. I think in my opinion. That's what emojis are for emojis are to give put at the end. Remember, what we text a context to what you're remember? When I talk to each other on the phone know. Yes, my kids twelve years old. I hand the phone to Slyke. Hey, say hi to your grandmother, say hi, my mother, and he grabs the phone, and he like looks at it and starts talking. He doesn't know how to use a phone. They would rather. He when I Hello. He's staring at the phone. I go put it to your ear their twelve years old, right? But it's all texting with them. And it's all face timing. They do a lot of the face with my parents when the phone rings. It's like a national emergency. They have to get it. Right. Yeah. Mike, you don't get the phone my life when the phone rings. I do not move on the home phone. Rings, because I know it's not for me. I don't have time, but we have to loan. I have to go with the gay of games. I just heard say with a gauge. Either house.

Listen dot com slash Ellen or text E L L E N to five hundred five hundred. Have a question here from listener. Oh listener. Yeah. We've seen shows. My question is about the bit. When Ellen is talking to celebrities earpieces, and they have to do and say, whatever she tells them it really offensive. It is hilarious by far one of my favorite bits. Will that is a question and Kev with you this show executive producer of the show? Why don't you answer that question? I would love to member. Well, first of all, it's so funny. How you in the question she had a describe the entire bit. We've tried several times to aim that bit. Yes. No name sticks. You're supposed to be called Eleanor your I think is what we finally ended on right? No one ever calls that every time we had on the show network primetime show featuring that bit and we had a figure out a name for the show. And then we also had hard time. Yeah. So that's one problem with the other problem is we love it. Also, the only thing we want to put it up all the time. But it's just you know, with the getting the celebrities to location that's close enough to the studio that we can complete it within the hour is difficult. So when we do it we. Do it. Right. And it is also I think what of all of our favorite bits. And and it's an Ellen loves it like the pure joy that Ellen has when she gets someone to save really awkward stuff in an environment full of strangers who are like what in the hell is going on. It's just so fun when it works when it works. It is fantastic. And when it doesn't work it doesn't work very quickly. We actually had only had one that really like knows dove into the ground and the day we shot that answer. One of our writers goes Kevin you've been here. A long time have any of these ever just like not work like right away. They went bad like, Nope. That was one here on stage. We just did. No. We've had we've had another one that also didn't work. Well that one worked the latest got pissed. Oh, you'll yoga lady. Yes, yoga, she just like thought he was crazy and wasting your time. So she bullshit stormed out. And then Derek. The one we just did at my. Yes. Yes. My totally were he he was. So he was so gracious with bender who is trying to get in his room, and he s like moved his body and gently pushed out the door and close the door. He was so he was he'll ask the did it so deftly. Yes. Yes. You know, big words, I don't lasted maybe a minute and a half Andy that something, you know, about and wow. Uh-huh. Humble brag. Very seriously addressing with. The very first wrote the very first one Dennis Quaid is here. Yes. So that your lawn. Those me fantastic. And said like he gets more people yelling Dennis Quaid is here at him than any other project. He's worked on me. So happy to just. Fifth grade kind of coffee. Good. So he's my favorite. Here's a clip from our very first Ellen in your ear. You're just joining us. We have sent Dennis Quaid over to Starbucks here on the one or two brothers. Lot of put an ISP and his ear which did not hurt. And and we have a hidden camera. And he has to say whatever, I tell him to say, and no one there at Starbucks knows that this is happening. He just wandered in. There's a hidden camera and something in his ear. And let's see if this works. We didn't rehearse it. We've never done this before it. Hey, dennis. You can hear me, then I guess I could hear us. Good camera working. I wonder well, that's not the hidden one. All right. Could see too. Yeah. All right. The hidden cameras in your bag.

And does it give you joy sparking jaw right? Yeah. So I found this. I found something in my cleaning out that was a little pin that says blue velvet on it because I was in the movie blue velvet, but I got cut out of it. And with a little note that said, thanks for your hard work, love, David Lynch. Oh, wow. That's pretty cool. All right. Yeah. Very cool. You got cut out. What did you do it? Well, I was at the beginning of the movie which the whole beginning cut, but I was common Glock loans, kind of not very nice girlfriend in college. And I actually had its in the came out in the DVD extras a couple years ago. I have a whole scene where I not just make out. It's like a French kissing expo. It's like the most intense make out make out a is that is that the place. Yeah. See it in real life. Still a lot of like. And the craziest part is was one of the first things I ever did on film. It was like mowing my first jobs. I don't remember doing that. And I never kissed anybody on film. And you'd think I'd remember. Yeah. You would especially the more. You know in the eighties. They used to do different kissing. It used to be like full like crazy next level Frenching. And now it's like they pulled it back. But there was a period in the eighties where they really went to town. Yeah. No. I know because then before going full cycle, I guess because the before like in the movies in the fifties. They would just like where they kissed. It was just closed mouth bloom that y. Like that. Right. Tight-lipped kissing. Yeah. Yeah. And then now you have to watch the bachelor franchise to get full. Yeah. Yeah. You can actually. Yeah. You hear the saliva on the bachelor. Yeah. You can hear the to live of moving around, Nick. And I watch Nick and watch the whole bachelor franchise and every single time without fail that any people are kissing. He goes oh God. Can't handle. Well, then where does he watch? That's the whole show. I now it's just I don't think he's secretly might be into. That was very sweet. I also I also like she uses condo as a verb. She said, she Marie Conrado. Yes. Yes. That was and Ellen was like, I don't know what you're talking about. And Megan has been going through her house, clearing out our house, seeing what sparks joined keeping it and thanking everything else for service and moving on from it and said, I've been con-going. My house has Debbie has Debbie. Tried Marie condo stuff. She Debbie intends to try it. And then intentions. Yeah. And then something happens. Right. Megan also, a hilarious that kissing noise. You heard was hilarious. You have to watch on your show. It's probably check out Megamall Molly on the on Jenner show. And then we had this is a guy. I just love. I call him Assan Manashe. He claims that his name is Haas on Manhattan. I call them home. He he he hosted the White House correspondents dinner a couple of years ago. I think it was the first White House correspondents dinner when Trump was President Trump declined to attend, and he was brilliant. I I remember listening to it in the car, we were on the way to dinner with my with Emily my daughter, and we could knock it out of the car because he was outrageously funny, and pointed and smart, and it really liked those things he really blew up after that. He now has his own show on Netflix called Patriot Act and it's a series, and it's it's it's politically charged and also smart, and and really funny, and it was his first appearance on our show. And he he told that he confessed to us that it was the thing that his mom had hoped. He would do is get to be on the Ellen show. Yeah. But I really liked him a lot. Here's very likable, dude. Yeah. He's cool. Here's a clip of that. Nice to meet you. I'm a huge fan of you. Thank you Assan Manashe. Yes. No, really. My name is Husselmann hush. Oh, I wanna do this actually want to do this on national television. Please everyone that says your name says Hasan Moniz. Yeah. But the real way you pronounce it.

It was an in that time. He like that video in three or four hours just blew up and the next day. He was on our show, and he did Papa Razzi on our show. And it started a whole it was a sea-change for us having Grayson chance on our that kid we signed him. And and we just we just fell in love with them. And so that was not he was there were other ones. But he to me. Yeah. Was like the first real person who took off Virailio in a way that we had never seen before and was little and he's lived a whole life since then. So he appeared on our show a few times, he performed a number of songs. He had a lot of success as an artist between like twelve and sixteen. Yeah. And then took a break. He started to grow up, and he actually burned out an e decided to go to college, and he was like I'm just going to step away from this, and I'm gonna live my life and in his first year of college. Dj or maybe his second year of college. He he got pursued by a label, and they said we'd like to make a deal with you. And he said, I need six months to think about this. Because if I'm going to do it it has to be on my terms, and I have to know that I can really like, you know, create magic again. And so now, he's twenty one years old. He was back on our show and his new his new record, which is called portraits is beautiful. It's on Spotify. There's like, I don't know. It's it's it's really beautiful. It's like a cross between like choice von and Sam Smith like it's really a good description. Yeah. It's it's it's really good. Great voice. He was such a sweet young boy as a fifth grader. Yep. He's now such a composed and still sweet twenty one year old. Yeah. He was here with his mom when he was twelve he was back here again with his mom at twenty one. He remembered the people who he knew on the on the staff came up gave me a big hug, you know. I know him a little bit back then then he is to. Two feet taller than he was at aged. He's he's so tall. And he talked about getting the call. In math class to come to the show. And we have that clip. Here's Grayson chance on our show. To my roots. I know so really a lot has happened since you were here last, but tell me what has happened. Well, you know, as you guys saw as, you know, better than anyone else from twelve when I first came on the show to eighteen I was working as a musician sort of every side of the industry and. Was I think by the time. I was eighteen years old. I was living out in LA. And I think I was just tired. I think I was creatively exhausted and a bit beat down to. And so I decided to go to university back home in Oklahoma. And I left LA really feeling like I was never gonna come back in that. I really close to chapter, and I was pretty content with that. And obviously, that's that's not really what happened. Right. So what about you back to music will the first year that I was in college, and by the way to been doing online school throughout my entire out of lessons. So the last classroom I had been in was really bright when you called. Yeah. So you get me out of school. What I did. And so I really, you know, the first year didn't even touch piano. I just was you know, being normal college kid and probably doing some things my mom when it beats proud about whatever. And then my sophomore year. I just really I think it was because the pressure was lifted off no one was expecting anything. I was really for the first time in like seven years able to sit down and piano again. And really think. Okay. I have a voice. What do I want to say? How do I wanna say it and got a record deal offered to me? So I said, let's go back, and let's do it. But let's do it on my terms this time. And let's just right. How I feel and that's how portrait's came about. It's really beautiful. Very personal. And you can tell that you wrote it because it's your stories. It's a it's a lot about heartbreak and things that didn't work out for you. And speaking of that, which you I didn't even know that you were gay. So you are you're you would come out to your family sixteen I guess, but. Right. But I and then you publicly came out when you were eighteen nineteen nineteen. Okay. And why did you feel like you waited? And why why was that the right time will preface it by saying, you know, I was so fortunately blessing, you know, my family too. I didn't have any issues coming out to family and friends. It was very very easy. And I think too I really wanted to make sure that it didn't seem like I was trying to profit or you know, sort of promote my sexuality as a means of getting more fame and popularity and so I just I waited I waited until I felt confident and posted up on Instagram message and felt like that was the right thing to do. Yeah. It was beautiful. I read it was really beautiful. And I think we all were so happy to to see that you are happy. And I think it was a fan who actually kind of motivated that. Right. There was this. I mean, I call him a kid who's probably the same interests me. But there was a guy from Arkansas, and obviously being from Oklahoma. I immediately resume with him on that. And and he told me his story, and how he was going to have a much more difficult time than I ever did, you know, coming out to his family, and at the end of the message, she put, you know, I know, you're not gay. But I just want to let you know your music really inspires me. And I looked at myself after that, and I was like come on kid like find that courage to do it. You know, find the confidence in and. Yeah, I wrote that message, and I remember I was a bright about to get on a plane, and I was just like looking down at it. And I was like, and then I shut my phone down went on the plane, and then, you know, landed chaos and all the things. Good chaos that would care. We tried something new this week. Yeah.

And this was an audience thing that the writers and Kevin came up with and Laurie who's obviously fan of the show because she has to be thought it was one of the most fun things she's ever been a part of and she's been in the audience a number of times over the years. We took a segment we do surveys says what we made it into a game under the tutelage of Gil reef one of our writers here. And here's what happened. I know a lot about twitch, obviously, he's my pal. But right now, I want to know more about my audience. So it's time to play. It's a brand new game. It's called survey says. So we're going to play along which an I, and so and guess I you're gonna start and then I'll say up, I think it's lower higher than will do it. And then we'll it'll make sense later. Okay. Okay.

Some people not as proud their hands are lower. Sixty four people. Yeah. I know my people, I know. Yeah. They're they're wild has my my people are all right. But really some people were proud.

Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

"It was a mild Monrovian evening in early November nineteen thirty eight just a few days days after Little Ellen Johnson was born the coconut trees swayed on the front lawn as the coastal breeze whipped softly through the open window the happy Happy Young Parents Jurmala and Martha sat quietly rocking their baby's cradle then a visitor arrived Jamali. Jamali and Martha knew what to expect another neighbor or acquaintance. Come to congratulate them on the new child. Tamale ushered in Elderly Man on their doorstep whose face was wrinkled from smiles. He asked to see the new child. Martha obliged showing him Ellen's creek but the guests reaction wasn't the normal coup of delight followed by praise and congratulations uh-huh instead. He turned Martha with a strange look on his face. His eyes were wide and dark and his voice. Chris came out harsh and cold. This child shall be great. This child is going to lead but at what cost he didn't know the little baby in her crib burst into a great gusty cry. Bri- whatever was coming she could handle it.

It really does help our audio biographies. Geography is cover big lives but we like to focus on little known facts today. We're discussing Ellen Johnson Sirleaf the twenty four th president it end of Liberia first elected female head of state in Africa and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize her difficult early adulthood adulthood look like an unlikely starting point for a world leader but Allen's commitment to bringing unity in true transparent democracy to her divided added homeland transcended the circumstances of those years through intelligence drive and relentless effort ellen manage to live and inspiring being successful life that ultimately helped her become the president of Liberia but she was not universally loved after twelve years in my barriers highest political office. It's no surprise her legacy grew complicated on. The woman behind. That legacy is even more complex. Let's get back to the story of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf who before being president was a young girl in Liberia's capital Monrovia via the Monrovia of Allen's childhood in her own words was zinc. Thank houses and hilly dirt streets Papaya trees and cassava plants flowering gardens and wooden outhouses simple friendly close-knit it home by nineteen fifty when she was roughly eleven years old the population was just thirty five thousand it was simple but lovely lovely and warm and it was all these things in part because Ellen was born into a family that was firmly rooted in the power system of the capital. Liberia's period's ruling class centered in Monrovia was made up of freed slaves who had come to settle the land starting in eighteen twenty this subtler class though fleeing persecution and inequality in America ironically created their own class-based society when they landed on Africa's west coast they established social economic and political dominance over the indigenous African tribes in what they soon started calling Liberia. Their government based on class and privilege was rampant with corruption and nepotism. This was not not a society of equal opportunity. Ellen's parents both had roots in native tribes her father Jamali was the son of Gola chief. Allen's grandfather had been a German trader which gave Allen and her mother a Pale complexion due to the couple's indigenous background background they should not have been able to rise through the impenetrable ranks of the Americo Liberians as Liberia's settler elite called themselves but they did to molly and Martha both made their way into the homes and schools of Monrovia's elite through the ward system. This was a cultural practice actus in which wealthier families would take in the children of poorer or more rural families and educate them in exchange for an extra set of hands around the house. Though although both Martha and Jamali kept in touch with their native villages the ward system made them culturally Americo Liberian they were raised Christian and given a Western style education on by the Time Ellen was born on October twenty ninth nineteen thirty eight Jomaa was a successful lawyer with ambitions to enter the Liberian Legislature Ellen and her three siblings grew up with status lettuce and material comfort. They went to the best schools in the capital and spent their Sunday's learning proper table manners with their mothers Americo Liberian Guardian Guardian who may called Grandma's Celia after William v S Tubman was elected to the presidency in nineteen forty-three on a platform platform of increased native representation rights. The Johnson family fortunes increased Allen's father became the first native born man elected the legislature. Little Ellen thrived in this comfortable cozy world. She listened in her father's. Government colleagues hobnobbed in their living room. She even got to meet President Tubman. When he came around for the occasional visit she was surrounded by a world of promise privilege and power four and she took it all in as little children do like a sponge but ellen also learned early on that Monrovia and its comforts weren't the only only way of life in Liberia. Her parents were determined that she not forget their indigenous roots. Every Summer Ellen Ellen and her siblings were shipped off to their fathers and central village with the goal speaking tribes people there they learned to swim and met people who practiced both indigenous indigenous rights and the Muslim Faith Ellen learned in short about the complex history and identity of Liberia from a native perspective you've just as she was learning about those things at school and in Monrovia from Anna Miracle Liberian perspective she knew that what she saw in Monrovia was does Liberia but although they looked different which she saw in the goal of village was Liberia to something else taught her about the nation's complexities in her early years bullying based on her skin tone in her Memoir Ellen Recounts Childhood Taunts about the light skin color. She'd inherited from her mother. Her schoolmates called her read Pumpkin with cruel jibes that she was too light to be a real African and while these taunts were like stabs to the heart but Ellen also knew that she was as African as could be staring in her mirror. She murmured to herself herself this. This is what Liberia looks like. Just like Monrovia is Liberia. Just like father's village is Liberia this this was the face of a smart worthy African girl. She knew she'd find a way to prove it. That ambition was the very seed of Ellen's Self Hood but when she was in her teens in the late nineteen fifties it was buried beneath the tragedy that that hit her family. Her father had a massive stroke leaving his entire right side paralyzed no longer able to work. He lost hostas position in the government. The family income plummeted and political powerbrokers stopped coming over for dinner for Ellen to there. There were massive consequences. The Americo Liberian elites she'd gone up with attended colleges abroad but Allen knew she had little hope of getting one of the government scholarship. She'd been assured when her father was a legislator. Those scholarships were reserved for the children of the upper crust and her family was no L. longer part of the ruling class. It was her senior year of high school. She was seventeen. She wasn't sure how to move forward her. Her predicament found its answer in the form of James Doc Sirleaf to Ski Gi Institute Educated Man Seven years her senior he too was mixed heritage from the native Mandingo tribe and the Americo Liberian elite like Ellen his background reflected Liberia's complicated socio. Political landscape was handsome charming and ambitious. He seemed like the perfect man soon soon after Ellen's graduation from high school in one thousand nine hundred fifty six the couple married but it wasn't just a marriage of Convenience Ellen doc were madly in love and Ellen wrote off his possessiveness as part of that intense love at first on the Union proved stifling almost immediately ellen was caring for what quickly turned into a family of six with four little boys to feed then dock became so possessive that ellen was afraid even smile at male friends in the street for fear of Docs Verbal Abuse Ellen Lynn felt all those bright still undefined ambitions of her childhood drifting farther and farther out of reach. She was depressed. Anna's anis-ur friends started to make their way back to Liberia with degrees and the prospect of high-powered careers. Her sense of isolation deepened that she had always thought would be her life education a career and contribution to her country after five years of a suffocating marriage. L. Knew something needed to change. She just needed an opportunity then in one thousand nine hundred sixty one she she got one doc was awarded a scholarship to pursue his masters in the United States at the University of Wisconsin Madison Listen. If Ellen could pull the right strings she might be able to get a scholarship to accompany him and further her own education. Finally Life Life could be on her own terms coming up. Ellen's ambitions sounds get their delayed start. I WanNa tell you all about my love for Bomba socks.

She had an opportunity to better her life. She would do whatever it took to get her own scholarship to accompany him and earn a college degree. Ellen had to take a special entrance exam but that wasn't enough by itself. She and her mother pleaded with everyone of influence. They knew after much much persistence and exhausting all of their connections she prevailed Ellen was awarded a scholarship to pursue an associate's degree at Madison School who live business life in Madison Wisconsin fulfilled Ellen's expectations in many ways days she was a dedicated student and excelled in her courses but over the course of the year the couple spend together in Wisconsin Docs Abuse Scott worse worse and escalated from verbal to physical in Ellen's own words he always did enough to hurt but not enough to maim or kill. Hill just enough to keep me in a state of fear. Ellen was relieved when Docs one year degree ended and she was left in Madison for a peaceful peaceful second year alone during that year she experienced a freedom in peace of mind that assured her marriage must end especially as her studies came to a close and she returned to Liberia and her family she felt trapped work provided it had some escaped from the fear and anxiety at home with her new American degree in hand and Hungary determination. She got a job in the Treasury Department and even more thrilling she found she actually loved the work in the field of economics she started to see a clear channel for her ambitions sounds a channel through which she could like her father before her contribute something of real value to Liberia a sense of accomplishment washed over her but the more ellen thrived in her professional life the more her husband lashed out at her docs abuse became more frequent and and less predictable one evening ellen came home and found herself staring down the barrel of a gun doc was holding in her at gunpoint but her oldest son eight year old James launched into action he threw himself at his father can of bug spray raised high and aimed for Docs is Allen's heart stopped unsure of what doc would do but the little boy was too small to reach his father's face and doc simply looked at his son confused he put with the gunned down shot ellen a death glare and drunkenly stumbled out of the Room Ellen grabbed the James held him close to her chest and bit down sobs in Liberia fathers always received custody of a child during a divorce but ellen new at that moment it was time even if that meant she was torn away from her boys in nineteen sixty five Ellen Johnson Sirleaf still just twenty seven years old left her husband bowing to his demands and the laws of Liberia. She left her children in his care. While the ensuing divorce was far from neat and clean she was able to maintain tain relationships with her children and her relationship with doc slowly faded from her life and she turned away from the past with relief. Finally she could move forward and concentrate on her career. She threw herself into her work but in doing so she saw within the Treasury sorry department and President Tubman government something that began to trouble her tubman had been in office since nineteen forty four which meant he had been ruling for twenty one years. Ellen witnessed firsthand rampant corruption throughout his administration has the sixties war on and the economy started to turn downward. She became increasingly convinced. The corruption around her was the problem. This wasn't the Liberia area. She'd grown to love is a little girl the country that she was determined to be accepted as a part of that country was better more fair her and its economy would be better as a result Ellen was quickly realizing that the Liberia of her childhood was smoke in Mir's corruption seem seem to be baked into the foundations of the government. Ellen wanted to change that. Few of her colleagues would dare discuss corruption even if they I shared her concerns. President Tubman had been known to drum up treason charges to keep his dissenters silent. Allen wasn't sure what what her path to creating that change would be so she kept quiet and stayed focused on her work for the time being she started to impress her colleagues at the Treasury Department and she caught the attention of one in particular Harvard economist Gustav Papa Nek Nick Who is advising the Liberian government as part of the Harvard Institute for International Development. While Ellen's role at the Treasury Department was Still Junior Papa Papa next saw her potential she was hard working honest and smart a rare combination in the Liberian government when he convinced President President Tubman to host the nineteen sixty-nine Conference on Liberia's economic future upon neck made sure that Ellen was invited to speak when she took the stage that day her life changed forever her speech focused on the reasons behind the current economic downturn downturn she I discussed the conventional explanations the global collapse of prices for iron ore and other important Liberian exports the government tax loopholes for large international corporations but then she launched into her final dangerous point Liberia would not thrive if as long as the government remained kleptocracy with power and wealth kept in the hands of a privileged few the corruption had to stop the crowd sat in shock not so much at Allen's analysis but at the fact that she would dare to say it publicly Ellen had put her our future on the line but she believed in her message and it's urgency as she watched the economy crumble around her she knew that Liberia's choices choices were to change or dissolve into chaos and disaster upon watched Allen Descend. I'm from the stage. He was impressed at worried. He pulled her aside. Her speech was excellent. He said but after a show like that she should get out of Liberia Ellen protested emphasizing that Liberia rarely arrested women but papa nic shook his his head she was being foolish as a way to protect her from tub men's wrath he resolved to try and get her a fellowship at Harvard University so the process wasn't simple but in the summer of Nineteen Sixty Nine Ellen left Liberia for the United States. I turn her bachelor's degree from the Economics Institute in Boulder Colorado then in the fall of nineteen seventy. She enrolled in Harvard University there air. She pursued a one year master's in public administration. Ellen excelled at both institutions at Harvard in particular. She educated herself south on the socio political makeup of Liberia she learned about the history behind the divided indigenous peoples and Americo Liberians and how rampant corruption and lack of opportunity for indigenous peoples allowed Americo Liberians to Hoard Power for themselves through shady backroom deals and she arrived at Harvard with her keen understanding of Liberia's multiplicity and the country's issues with corruption she left the university decisive comprehensive opinions about what needed to change in Liberia more equality for indigenous peoples and more transparent government to weed out corruption eruption her steamship trip home from Cambridge Massachusetts to Liberia in July nineteen seventy one was full all of excitement and apprehension ellen now thirty two years old wasn't sure what kind of reception she'd get back in Monrovia after the speech each with which she left it two years ago she wasn't sure what kind of work she'd be able to do there now but then mid dinner on July twenty third news reached the ship President Tubman after twenty seven years in power had died at age seventy-five Liberia was on the brink of something and Ellen was certain that she was about to be a part of that transformation with Tubman dead a Harvard degree in hand and her controversial anti-corruption speech several years in the past. It wasn't difficult for Ellen. De Get the new senior position that the Treasury Department now called the Ministry of Finance the new President Fifty eight year old William Tolbert seem committed to an agenda for real change at least in the beginning but old habits die hard tolbert was surrounded rounded by members of the old Americo Liberian subtler elite and they were loath to give up any of their privileges. They proved very persuasive. Live Ellen as usual was vocal about these problems she gave speeches insisting on the need for less corruption equal opportunity for or the indigenous Liberians in a better distribution of wealth and power tolbert and the elites ignored her per usual with this time something something was different. Allen wasn't alone in her dissidents. Liberal groups rooted in the sideline oppressed indigenous tribes were springing up to protest Liberia's inequality and corruption one of the key issues. These new radical groups latched onto was the price of rice this Tolbert and his family owned rice farms and had proposed a price inflation that would allow Tolbert and other wealthy rice farmers to profit while while the country's poor majority were left hungrier than ever but rice was really just a surface level issue stemming from generations of corruption and on April Fourteenth nineteen seventy nine a protest turned into a riot on Monrovia's streets. The government responded with repressive measures intended to quell the violence but these measures only fed the flames. President Tolbert fired the the Finance Minister and appointed Ellen to take his place likely hoping that her record of speaking out against corruption might make the protesters happy this. This was a historic moment for Liberia. Ellen was the first woman to hold this position for the first time. She really had the power to make change. She understood the frustrations of the Liberian people in the streets in fact she shared their hurt but her excitement at this opportunity was short lived served tensions between radical largely indigenous dissidents and the Tolbert government escalated rapidly over the next year ellen had barely settled pulled into a new office before on April Twelfth Nineteen Eighty Master Sergeant Samuel DOE staged a coup d'etat during the coup President Tolbert was shot in bed disembowelled and struck through the head with a bayonet he was thrown into a mass grave with twenty seven other victims of violence ten days later thirteen members of Tolbert's cabinet were publicly executed. Only four four ministers were spared. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was one of them Allen likely made it through the turbulent bulent chaotic days after the coup because of her history of speaking out against the Tubman and Tolbert governments despite the fact that she had worked for them but she also knew that this protection might wear off at any time does killing people left and right she had to get out of Liberia Berea in December nineteen eighty eight months after the coup. She fled the country she went to Washington. DC and took a position Russian with the World Bank which he got thanks to her contacts within the Liberian government later. She accepted a position in Nairobi Kenya as Vice President. Don't CITICORP's office all the while ellen was watching carefully as dough like Tubman Tolbert before him packed the government with his family and friends dough might not have been born into the Americo Liberian elite but he was replicating. Many of its corrupt practices. Allen's seed does dough jail dissidents. She had predicted this would happen the economy floundered staying afloat with loans from the the US which was determined to keep Liberia out of the Soviet bloc but then in nineteen eighty five thanks to increasing internal and international national pressure. General Doe announced that Liberia would have a general election and was still hopeful enough about the future of Liberia to get excited so much so that she dared to run against O. as the vice presidential candidate of opposing party she knew the decision it could be dangerous but she had to try coming up allen faces the dire consequences of returning to Liberia now back to the story in nineteen eighty five the military usurper general Samuel Doe announced that he was going to allow Liberia general election facing pressure from internal attornal dissidents and the international community forty seven year old Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was elated at what she saw as finally her the opportunity to help Liberia make real change. She left her post at Citibank in Kenya return to Liberia and ran for vice president but it quickly became clear that dough had no intention of letting opposition parties run campaigns and after Ellen gave a speech calling the current Administration Idiots. He had her arrested on charges of sedition. A military tribunal final sentenced her to ten years in Jail Ellen. A national folk hero for her determination to speak truth to power was dragged off to prison. The international community erupted in outrage. Citibank Allen's former employer went to bat for her the US Congress passed a non-binding resolution calling on the American government to block all foreign assistance to Liberia. If dove failed to release his political prisoners many Liberian women even signed a petition for doe to comply dough capitulated related in September nineteen eighty five two weeks into her ten year sentence. Ellen was released for Ellen. The experience was powerful powerful powerfully terrifying but also a powerful reminder that collective action and pressure could create change. She'd she'd hold that knowledge close during the difficult years to come that difficulty began when her party dumped her from its vice ace presidential ticket thanks to pressure from doe however another party decided to nominate her for their seat in the Senate on October twenty ninth the head of these Special Elections Commission Emmett Harmon announced the results General Samuel Doe had scratched out a victory. Sorry Ellen Johnson Sirleaf won her seat in the Senate and yet she was fuming the presidential election. She was sure for had been rigged. Doe had won by about fifty one percent of the vote just enough to avoid a runoff but there were stories of children boating of double voting of voter suppression on this was not fair election. She couldn't accept her seat to do you so would give credence to the results of the presidential election and that she could not do declining her seat infuriated dough but Ellen and wasn't the only one who was intent on making her disgust with the rigged election clear on November twelfth nineteen eighty eighty five the ex commander general of does army staged a coup ellen was arrested along with other dissidents when the coup failed even though she she played no part in the debacle for the second time in less than six months. Ellen was imprisoned prison in one thousand nine hundred five live Liberia was a deadly place especially for a woman Allen would later write in her memoir that she narrowly escaped sexual assault by her guards cards. She was constantly afraid and anxious. At any minute she knew her cell door could swing open to reveal an executioner but not as the months war on with her life intact hope started to creep in. She wondered if her international contacts and the pressure they exerted on doe go stilled his hand. Whatever does reasons Ellen's hope was warranted in July nineteen ninety-six after eight months in prison. She was released in the weeks that followed however Ellen was unsurprised to see that she was being followed. Liberia was still wholly unstable. The people were mobilized and no amount of arrests or executions by doe was going to change that but that that didn't stop him from trying ultimately. Ellen knew she needed to leave Liberia but those governments still had her passport and he ordered ordered all political prisoners to stay in the country. She need to escape in secret. Her son's wedding day provided the perfect diversion her watchers she hoped would relax their gaze on that day assuming she'd be busy with wedding preparations brations around three a m day of the celebration she woke up and dressed in jeans and a bulky jacket. She pulled a cap over her forehead and wore glasses to hide her face. She was cool under pressure focused and efficient an hour later. She slipped out out her front door hopped into a waiting car and drove ninety miles out of Monrovia to a small private airport heart racing. She scrambled rambled into a small plane that a friend had arranged for her by Don. She was on her way out of the country. It was only when she saw saw the west coast of Africa receding behind her that she breathed a sigh of relief but the success ever escape was bittersweet. She had no idea yeah when she'd be back and no idea what would hit Liberia in the inner what followed for Ellen were eleven years of exile she I worked as vice president of HSBC Equator Bank in Washington then joined the UN Development Program as the Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations a meanwhile a civil war erupted in Liberia in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine an armed uprising against the DOE regime quickly devolved into a chaotic factional bloodbath in nineteen ninety doe was tortured in the streets of Monrovia Monrovia and murdered by one of the rebel leaders Prince Johnson. The whole agonizing affair was captured on video and broadcast around the world world. Ellen watched the tragedy unfold from afar heartbroken doe was her enemy an enemy of the Liberian people but no no one deserved to die like that and it wasn't just doe who died Liberians across the country were losing family friends and loved ones in the conflict by nineteen ninety. Ellen was fifty two she could have easily seen this chaos given up on Liberia and chosen to embrace her status data's as an ex pat her homeland for all her dedication had not treated her well but most of her family was still in Liberia and Liberia for all its bloody wounds was her home as she explained in her memoir. I was always always always looking for the opportunity to return that opportunity came in nineteen ninety six when a ceasefire was finally reached and general neural elections were announced to take place the following year fifty eight-year-old Ellen after eleven years of exile returned to her homeland and this time she campaigned for president but she was soundly defeated Ellen's emphasis this on change and reform may not have been so welcome in a country that wanted peace and stability Charles Taylor one of the warlords who played a prominent role in the civil war seemed like a more secure option for country ravaged by conflict despite the brutal way in which he'd helped sleigh though or perhaps because of it but the elections were also widely considered rigged much like the election that gave dough the presidency Z. Ellen however was unwilling to stay quiet even in defeat when Taylor proved to be just as brutally oppressive as though she she became his government's most outspoken critic this time she was also up against the international community which had widely supported Taylor's presidency in hopes of ushering Liberia out of civil war and in the piece Ellen's criticism of Taylor put her in grave danger. Injure dissidents were not tolerated and she feared for her safety soon after Taylor's inauguration on August second nineteen ninety. Seven Ellen fled lead Liberia for the fourth time this time she settled in Cote d'Ivoire Liberia's neighbour and established a venture capital firm but once again she watched the situation in Liberia carefully and waited for her opportunity to return her heart broke as under the leadership of a second second dictatorial warlord Liberia descended once more into brutal civil war in nineteen ninety nine. The international community turned. It's back on the user per. It had previously supported then in two thousand three as a result of intense international pressure in major territorial losses. The disgraced President Taylor fled to Nigeria Ellen knew it was finally her turn learn to lead. Her country needed her after close to fourteen years of civil war. Liberians were ready for something new. They wanted rule of law. They wanted peace. She returned home in two thousand three to chair. The Governance Reform Commission of the transitional government ornament she successfully oversaw transition of the nation's finances from the executive branch to the legislative branch allowing for more democratic oversight oversight on then in two thousand five Allen's confidence proved founded. She was elected president of Liberia's brand new government in what is widely considered the country's first real free election. She owed her victory largely the women of Liberia Korea and with the help of those women she made history President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was the first elected female the head of state in African history on January sixteenth two thousand six. She was sworn into office. Liberia entered a new era of peace for many Liberians that was the Greatest Greatest Gift Ellen could possibly give them finally the nation's children could grow up without fear of stray bullets cutting their lives short but Allen's successes in her first term did not end it keeping the peace she erased five billion dollars of Liberia's foreign debts after three a years in office and by the end of term in two thousand eleven she had increased the government's yearly budget from eighty million dollars to five hundred sixteen million in dollars her years working in international finance paid off. She knew how to negotiate a good deal and how to work with the global community. Those skills helped to run an effective foreign policy overall. She negotiated the end of trade sanctions against Liberia. She started to move the country's country's reputation away from the instability of the civil wars but Ellen was also acutely aware of Liberia's need for social change she instituted free universal elementary education and her government established one of the most comprehensive anti rape laws in Africa car and a fast track court for gender-based violence. These successes made her the darling of the developing world in the eyes of many the international figures and organizations like Bill Clinton and George Soros's Open Society Foundation in two thousand eleven at the end of first term she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize the Nobel Committee credited Allen's contribution to securing peace in Liberia area to promoting economic and social development and to strengthening the position of women many Liberians to were pleased with her work four four days. After the announcement of the Nobel prize she was elected to a second six year term in office but despite winning a second term Ellen's reputation at home was far from perfect as her second term war on many Liberians grew frustrated by Elon's Len's lack of a comprehensive feminist political agenda especially after her first election on the backs of Liberia's women. Some were devastated when she went on record deriding feminism she claimed it was extremism although she continued to talk about the need for equality and female empowerment critics also grew frustrated by her refusal to advance gay rights while others were angry that they remained poor despite Sirleaf promise of turning Liberia into a middle income country and finally they were tired of her nepotism. She appointed nearly twenty twenty family members to government posts during her tenure as president after a career spent railing against corruption. This was perhaps the biggest detail of all Ellen's motivations for those appointments and the rationale used to justify them are hard to understand but what's clear is that many any of her one time allies grew frustrated with the hypocrisy Laima Bowie a Liberian activist who shared the Nobel Peace Prize with Ellen even resigned signed from her government post in two thousand twelve to protest what she saw as the president's tolerance for graft it would be short-sighted to condemn President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf entire presidency or career because of that failure however and and in two thousand seventeen she cemented her legacy by doing something no Liberian leader in recent memory had at the end of her second term term in two thousand Seventeen Ellen stepped down from her presidency without a fight as the Constitution mandated this was Liberia's first peaceful democratic transition of power and seventy three years and like the twelve years of peace. She safeguarded for her our country. It was a powerful gift for Liberian democracy while Ellen didn't run a false government far from it in fact by preserving deserving democracy in Liberia. She opened up the field for better governments to follow and set an example hopefully for generations to come today. Her legacy remains as complicated as her tenure in office. Her success serves as a model for ambitious. This women like herself her decision to be open about the domestic abuse. She suffered during her marriage. Help demonstrate that survivors need not be defined by are there experiences and her story seems to have inspired other women to enter politics in Liberia in two thousand seventeen the last year of her presidency residency sixteen percent of candidates for the House of Representatives were female the highest proportion in history however in two thousand nineteen gene. UN data showed that women accounted for around twelve percent of Liberia's legislature in addition Liberia still faces widespread sidespread corruption and poverty the transparent equitable democracy Allen's presidency seemed to be auguring is still a ways off off heart despite it all ellen remains a remarkable trail-blazing figure more than a year after stepping down from office she still busy giving speeches speeches and tweeting about the need for increased equality democracy and development across Africa and the world. She believed saved country that seemed beyond hope. Her story is far from over but her legacy is already. One of peace promise integrity. Thanks for tuning in to historical figures.

Ellen throws a scary prank, Cate Blanchett, Simon Cowell and Beth Behrs

"Hi, it's Ellen Degeneres. Welcome to my podcast. We're gonna listen to some of the best moments from the show, and it's going to be hosted by four executive producers that I love happy listening, welcome to another episode of. I'm having to start. I don't want it. Head start. Go, go ahead. Go ahead. Another episode of Ellen on the go. I'm your host Andy last nerve and joining me today. Are you kidding me? Friends, Mary Connolly. Ed, glavin and Kevin Leman. Who helped me out putting this show together. All right. You're fired. You want, what do we have on the show today? Kevin, Cate Blanche's go teach us about truffle, hunting and cursing. Simon cowl discusses how fatherhood has changed him and Ellen set up a scare that is very, very elaborate and hilarious. We'll tell you all about so over the weekend last weekend, Andy sends Ellen a video that he saw of two snakes that had fallen out of a ceiling in mid fight onto the floor of a home in Australia. And yes. And the reason I send it to Ellen is because one of our writers are women and ballion is petrified. Petrified. Petrified of snakes and Ellen likes to send her snake videos. And so what I did was I saw this horrifying snake video as described to like pythons that fell through the event of a home, how how long were they? Do? You figure seven, eight feet near fight. So just picture yourself in your home. Home and suddenly to snakes fall from the ceiling in a fight serpentine or whatever. That was almost looked like one snake with two heads. Yeah, it was together are fine. So so I send it tell in like at seven AM on a Saturday morning and go, I'm gonna let you send this to Alison, right? So Ellen didn't send it to Allison, but we showed it in one of the writers meetings and then that gave Kevin Kevin and Ellen an idea. Well, yeah, the minute we walked out another one of our writers Troy notice that there's a tiled ceiling Ellen's office and said, we've got to put snakes above Allison. So here's, here's the one thing you need to know is that for the last sixteen years, essentially everybody has a signed seats in the meeting. Everybody sits in the same place, not assign. Yeah, but we all have our seats. The same seat like Andy sits as close to Elena's. He can get. Yes. I'm also in charge. So, yeah. Oh my God. So everybody has the same seats. Everybody sits in the same seats. So Ellen wants us to the Warner Brothers, special effects team involved, and we get a motor put above the ceiling the night. This is all happening while we're also making. Why would you tell any of us about? I wouldn't because big mouths, the only person I told her glavin of course. So we get all the wheels in motion. We have special effects with a ladder, and I'm petrified because there's expensive art all over the office, but we get all rigged up, get to rubber snakes in the thing right above Ellen Allison, right, Rev Alison. Sorry. And then they have to run a cable through the ceiling tile around a window down the side of a wall through the carpet under Ellen's chair. And then they give her a little trigger button right in her seat so that she has control of when these draw stakes are going to drop on Alison. We had go pros all over the room, a hidden microphone. We built a binder that hell the hidden camera. We wouldn't like we spent twenty four thousand dollars. To do stupid prank. Probably not approved. And the other are just finding out about that now, and I apologize in advance. But it was well worth it by not telling anyone else except for that. It was happening. All the reaction was a reaction from every single person. It was produced this podcast and you'll who runs our entire digital department. The way that he fell off his stool and was crawling on the ground, screaming at a fishing did not know, was achievable by him was interesting. This an Andy dart out of the room like they are run a fine, save yourself. Yeah. Out of the room. Yeah. So fast Alison had across the entire room to get out of the room the way that neither of them fought it necessary to protect the host right now. Not. I'm the guy who steps over my kids to get out of situations. I think people at home watching, probably think it must be so much fun to work at the Ellen show. 'em Mike, truthfully, it is a ton of work to do an hour show every single day, but there are moments like that that we all get to laugh together. It is so much fun and just like pulling off a stunt like that. It's so fun. Have the resources to do it and, oh gosh, what's great is we'll put that into a show so you can listen to it here and then see it later on the Ellen show. I'm sure if you missed it.

Yes, I'd give them I did. I know a lot of people are doing that. Yeah, this would explain what happened at the end of best. There's I act. Andy was scared on the show today. And I think he's still red. Scared by by a guy. In a bee costume. That guy was Kevin who is referring to himself as a big Gabi. You're saying you have bees, and you did a serious for us on our digital for a b. kind. I'd say it was amazing. They had me dress in as a be at Galveston and teach people that saving by the way, if you ever want to know what crazy people feel like go to dress as a b and like pretend to pollinate flowers and produce that people are buying. Although I did get a lot of sort of date opportunity layering that out by wearing that outfit. I was like, screw Tinder. Like if I was not married, this would be a great. This man was like, let me show you a picture, my son, and it was like following us around the store. This other man was like, can I get your number? And I was like, I gotta dress like a be more often. Yeah, I don't know what that's about. It really was amazing because I saw it with Andy. And you had Andy dress like a b. and you had right, let we're Doraville as a being. Better than idea entity. Yeah. Look at that. And you, you actually learn. What did you, what did you throw down some? What was that Andy broken guys? He's broke as put together by those bowls. We got to go to break. No, we don't. He think Andy's going to be in therapy forever. This show? No, I think is his sons will. That's their daddy. Average handy is their daddy. His son sing that average Andy fem- song to him all the time. All right. Do you think we should go to break or. No? Break, please. Andy through something cursed stomped. It was through you slam Cy withholding. Holding. I was holding a screw with some nuts. Washer and here's the thing about ten minutes later, Andy came up to me and went, I gotta tell you when when you scare me, it takes me a little bit to recover. Yeah. So he was not only taking blame for the thing that had gone wrong. He actually then was going, it's not my fault. You guys scared me. And so and then I had to explain I candidate Mary at in Kevin's full. I always do. It's a lot with the scaring. I'm just going to say that especially with Halloween coming up with the high blood pressure. It's a lot and people are constantly asking me, are you really getting that scared? And the answer is, yes, I am getting that stunned and I have to always explain what the Halloween thing. I'm not scared of goblins. I don't believe in monsters. It's the suddenness of all of it. So if I just went through a haunted house and it was just regular people jumping out, it'd be just as horrible to me. It's not about the fact that I'm scared of zombies. I just wanted to make that clear. A lot of people think that I am. K plan should always a good guest. I love my gosh. Yeah, just hilarious. Earning questions with her. Yeah. And man, she has no filter. Part of your spouse's is your favorite. His risks. That's a lie. They say. Yeah, no, she's just fantastic. Blanchard has a little bit of a filthy side to she works out. She barks at all, put together, you think, oh, here she is sort of this proper Australian and then happy to tell you what ever pops into her head. I've never met her and all the times that she's been here because I'm in the troll. Well, we owe everyone who doesn't know how the show works, et works in the control room. Right? Because guests of asked that he not be near the rest of us interact with the guests and often go out to dinner with them after the show. And we just tell Ed, we're going home to our families. We don't. Do they ever he's not good? No, no, no. You're not around celebrity. But yes, she's, she's this brilliant Oscar winning actress, like brilliant. And she comes out here and her and Ellen had this chemistry where they're just naughty. And we're so many actresses would wanna like be reserved and hold it together and not sort of show their silly side. You know, just to because they wouldn't wanna be embarrassing. She to me is so much more endearing because she is willing to be a little naughty and unfiltered. So every time here here, things come out of your mouth that I regret that you regret and we love. And so I just want the first thing that comes to mind. I'm going to read a sentence and you're gonna fill in the blank. It's a game that we're calling fill in the Blanchet. Works my suit. Yeah, it does. That's sexy, music. All right. So I'll read a sentence and then you have to just I'm comparing the just complete the sentence with the first thing that pops in your head. This morning. I got out of bed and thought, oh. Oh, no. Sandra Bullock once told me. I can't repeat. All right. Diamonds aren't a girl's best. Friend blank are blank. Roller coasters. Rollercoaster girl's best friend. Yeah. All right. If you wearing underwear. Partic- talk. We went when we were filming the house with a clock in its walls in Atlanta, Jack, and I went to six flags, and everyone stands underneath the roller coaster going. My going to go on that and do not wearing underwear. We know that everyone's looking at yet. All right toes. You know, I guess that's, that's interesting. That's what I mean. We'll remind go. All right. It seemed like a good idea, but I really regret this. I knew you're going to say that the greatest invention of all time is that suit? That's sweet. I would trade my Oscars for. Ooh. I don't know some Emmys. Get a TV show. You'll get some imitate. Yes, yes. Speak to someone. Yes, I'll produce one for you. Okay. All right. One, it'd be about anything or was it just about two people sitting at all. Nothing. Nothing. Whenever someone asked me what my most embarassing moment is I really wanna tell them, oh, to poop, poop off hoop op every day, make time for. Take time to a Blute. I'm sorry, a Blute put. Is that just a Blute? What is it's a polite way of saying? Just do you things in the morning, take time to do it. You know, I know you're really now, but those are not words. I'm married to an Australian and as a lure is not a word I'm going to ask her when I get home. Okay. Today I went on Ellen show, and boy was it. Embarrassing. You're always a fun. It was fun. I talking about my movie. Why. You tend you interested because I could go on? Yes. Yes, I'm genuinely needed. Went hunting for truffles. Oh, yes. Wigs with mutton. No, this is the thing. If you go hunting for troubles, do not do not use pigs because they will take your fingers off because the pig actually wants the truffle. Yes. Where did we go with a dog dogs hate truffles. They want the treat, I say. So if you're going truffle, hunting, all of you, I'm sure every single person. The on has been a wants to go hunting patrols. Right? But that's what I did in my son. A lot of people are doing that now, is it fun? It is. It's incredible. They're so pungent. If you put a truffle into a seal jaw with eggs and lifted overnight, it infuses the shell and you have traveled, scrambled eggs. The next morning if you like Trump if you like truffles, oh, you stick coffin nob- into a bottle of vodka, and then that's Lipton both a knob with a knob. With? No, a, no. Ab- is a, it was a slang term for an idiot. Or can you say to say to some television. Could you say that until a vision? Why would you put that in a what? No, no. I know I'm like a novel butter. Don't you use that in? Did you just curse in my ear. That's not what you meant and you just decided to curse my air. Are you sitting here with you? To me, it's got nothing to do with this entire story. I'm in cal- Kevin. Simon cow by frigging AG ADT. I love your show. Simon Callow came by same shirts, same jeans and a flare. There's a flare if the bottom of those genes like the bell bottom Jean, what Mary I'm not about to. I'm not about to criticize his words. I'm not. I'm not criticizing. I'm just saying it's amazing to me, but I said he's got a gene that's he is found a look and he's sticking with its unbelievable forever. He's probably worth one hundred million dollars depending. But he's cut. I mean, like flared, but can we talk about what's changed about him? What's changed about him? He gets choked up like he just more gun. He got emotional. He says, because now that he has a young son, he gets emotional about things and he seems appalled by it. And it's interesting to see a different side of Simon thought, maybe a motion or watching that, well, it makes everyone emotional to see you cry is like a rare thing. I don't. I don't -magine. You cry often. I think three times in my life. Is that true or not, but. Something about that guy that night where it just it just hit me. Yeah. Well, it was sweet. I mean, I think everybody. I mean, everyone knows that you're really a sweet guy and you were just brutally honest. But so I think it was just kind of it was great to see that this guy we're talking about Michael, his story is like he's adopted all these kids and he's a nurse and he works with young kids. I mean, just when you think he denies he gets nice just hit me in that moment what it would mean to him to do what in the show? Yeah, and he's doing well, he's doing when he's still there. He's in the final tonight and he's gonna show? Yeah. Do you think do you think you know who the winner is and then this year on the sleet? I think this five people who could win it. Yeah, you have a lot of people. We've got some really good people go. This British go, Courtney, who is incredible. Nineteen years old. She's like possessed by Janice Joplin. Yes. Yeah. I mean, seriously, Michael, we've got this group because Zuccaro which is about one hundred kids who'll do some of those in there. I mean, it is thank gold. Yeah of, yeah. You just when you think that you can't like every year there's there are people that are just crazy talented where we stayed in each other's talent at the moment. You and I. Yes, we are. Yeah, I been dislike who gets there first you will make. We're. We're trying like trust me. I know there was someone that that we actually wanted and somehow didn't get to you. And I'm curious about just do a deal and we share them. We should. Let's do that. All right. All right. So you know, you haven't been here in five years on the way down in the car. I said to Lauren, I'm trying to remember the last time I came on the Ellen show, and I said, I think it was two years ago and then I found that it was five years ago. Yes, thanks for the invite your son, your son. I was not born yet. We gave him a little a car. Oh yeah. We gave him a toy Gotti. Which does he drive it new? Yes. He's a little bit too big for it, but I just can't believe how quickly time goes. Yeah, he is precious. I mean, that is an adorable kid yet. You know what? He's sweet. I remember teaching him how to share what he was one and a half because he had a bowl of milk. And I said, let me have some milk and he was like, once on what trust me sharing gets you more. And I told him please, and thank you and he's not like I was sometimes when I told Eric, what did he you've done? I'd be twenty times worse. I get it and that's how we communicate. But he's a sweet up. Yeah, and he's got good style to does. He dress himself. We have arguments about who's the most handsome, he can. I sit, it's made, but we live to go to the point now where I'm ordering pajamas. Now has to wear the same as me. That's a door. Yeah. I mean, he really has changed you, you know that right? One hundred percent and how it's changed me is that you look at life hopefully to his eyes. So whereas before I would watch the news or just something miserable, you kinda shy away from that because you want to see everything through his eyes. So you want to be happy. So I watched the Simpsons in the morning. I work funny movies like slobber in the evening and and a pump just him being here. It is giving me a different outlook and he's very good. When I watched the shows back, you know who he likes, he's could taste really so well. Yeah, that would be a great show for him to watch. Now, does he have any talent yet? Do you have you seen anything that will he worked mind me saying this, but he's done is terrible. I said to you all the worst downside in the world which encourage you to do these way downsizes in fact, last week and we had some friends around and him and his three friends poodles some performance as if they were doing ADT am. I said that's not going to get you the golden buzzer yet, but I, he was my size of the test than the other side of the desk. So maybe he'll do that then maybe he'll become like a producer or something. But yeah. Yeah. All right. 'cause we can't sign him. So. We, we both just agree. We both right where so I'm gonna trust you on that. But I wouldn't still like to see him dance just in case you may be wrong because you're very strict. Let's do actually. Yeah. We talk about dinner for a second. Yes, Kevin is mealtime a challenge for families through busy families. It's hard with busy schedules to get home and put a fresh nutritious meal on the table pointed out. Yup, it is true. We eat out a lot and it's honestly, it's not that great you, it's not don't know what any of the food and it's just not healthy. I would cook more if things came to me sort of ready to go.

Montaigne was a big fan of grass in the seventies breaking fried fried it was a bad coloring and so she basically spent the summer shaving her head and then having to grow it back and one of the things she considered about it but anyway my hair I told you a story about my hair coloring of it and everything last spring I'm not going to recap the whole thing but long story short earn kept saying it's never gonNA make it three seasons I'm Andy last near your host oh I'm Mary Conner link in the Third Lauren are pomeranz the first the episode Thanksgiving she told me well hi Jane Hi Jane asked her she had in the spring where a colorist and it got dry and whole thing and she ended up having to shave down it which you can take Brittle Week Shopping Lawrence here for Laura's here she's not a regular yet but we're we're talking in she's in she's a recurring recurring character andy drives a pedicab in New York City start with the same sentence that all bad hair stories start with which is I tried out a new person and you know that story right so so when she colored my hair turned a lot of colors except for blonde which is the one I was going for it was bad it was like really really bad and a my hair was long and then it was short and it fell out and right out of my head like was breaking off out of my head and as I said back then yeah thank you anyway it was such an ordeal I was making a joke the I agreed to go back to blonde so then my version hair was touched for the very first time and so Suckers tried to get rid of first second season the first time like I said that I had seen my natural color this is what it looked like it was that short and that is my natural color so I was gonNA keep it that way but then Mary who's right over my hairdresser said I needed to shave it really short so that the color was completely out of it and I would grow new virgin hair and since I wasn't working over the summer that's what I did I wear a wig and then because it's easier Oh okay well I would wearing a wig that was really talked about it on the show this is the most eloquent and efficient setup of a story in fact I went to shopping and I brought my writer Lauren to pay and here's what happened to the wing Shop Lauren the actual facts get in the way of the story but the point is she's considered wearing a wig because it's so hard to go through the whatever you go through multiple times no way no the one win let's be clear when I saw her the other night she said to me I re listened a woman in your hair and she decided to take the beautiful Lauren pomerantz who wears a wig full-time tilting which you a wig shop and it is maybe which I don't know about you but I have not stopped thinking about my hair I don't know if you have but it's you know when something's your thing and you think everybody must be thinking here she called to give me your opinion which is that I should go back to blonde and talk show host part of the year and then the summer I was like a marine and I really planned on coloring it again the funniest piece of tape I've seen many many years why don't we ellen tell the story better hair and then we'll play the wig

Seems like Ellen should send Monica a DVR. Yeah, Monica strong. I'm gonna send you something so you can. All right, wonderful. These are a lot of good revere. These executive producers are hysterical, I'm telling you, I would never written a review on a podcast, but I have to say this is probably my favorite. I work all day and never get to see Ellen. What is wrong with people working in, not watching the show. Well, that's why we have this for them. So because we run all the clips from your show and people get to, yeah, you know, and then they can go. And we also tell them to go to Ellen tube where they can watch it. Ellen recommend a podcast that you love. Well, I just finished Dr. Death, Dr. Death is on one very, yeah, Dr death is is it was number one. I don't know where it is right now, but it's frightening is what it is. It's a neurosurgeon who should not have been operating on people ever and got away with it for years and years. And fortunately to other doctors got involved and chased him down and and but it's it's, it's frightening and on episode five, I have really bad. They made dirty John into a scripted television event. We probably Connie Britton coming up for it and we have the trailer trailer. It's going to be on Bravo, I think. And it's it's Connie Britton and Eric Bana. It looks unbelievable and Eric von, as we know the ending television. Meaning series. It's like a mini series. Titanic, and it looks so good. That what used to be? It wasn't a TV show on looks exactly like how I pictured the guy when I was listening to the podcast. If you haven't seen the podcast dirty if you haven't listened to the podcast thirty, John, please do so really. Really. Yeah. Can we talk for a minute about Jennifer garner? Yes. Sweetest sweetest girl in the world and funny and natural and named a chicken and she and she has chickens. L. Linda hetero named it. Talk about your chickens because I know you have chickens and I'm, I'm obsessed with the fact that, well, I wanna get chickens and some people say that attracts predators and rats and snakes and stuff like that. Have you found that your chickens have attracted things? I have not had that experience, but I also might chicken coop is like Fort Knox. There's wire under it. There's wire around the run. There's no, I would put wire around the chickens. I would completely. I would put them in one of those balls that they just kind of go in. No, I would have the wire under it on top. It. But every that doesn't attract rats, we have not. I have not had that experience. Okay, good. Okay. So I should get chickens. You should get chickens. They're still fun there. They're such nice pets. Yes, held. They get mad at each other. Why are they mad or are they fighting? Well, we had a flock of seven and then Regina George rest in peace. Just for random reads, which one is Regina George? Oh, well, she wasn't there. She was gone. She didn't make his Adly to her first birthday that was their day. So she had gone to this. You can see this guy. All right, so so anyway, with six chickens, we got seven new ones. Babies babies, yeah. The day after they hatch, they come in the mail. You go to the post office and the you say, I'm here to pick up chicks and you here in the back. They come in the mail? Yes. Wow there. Yes. Then ten of her. They make it through the mail. They make it through the mail. Their happiest can be. Oh, yes, sure. They're, they're thrilled. All right, so, and so what they're their stamped and just tossed in with the, you know, with like the express mail their hand, carefully everyone's excited when their baby chicks. Okay. Yeah. So I feel like it's pretty good. Okay. Good. So wait. So the big chickens are attacking the little chicks. Unfortunately, yes, Martha Stewart told me just namedrop Martha Stewart. But she did. She told me herself to keep them separated for as long as possible. So I did. And then the new chicks were really ready to be. I mean, I think they're thinking about laying eggs, and I don't want them to be like oracle in worse where the nests, you know, you don't know. So we, we decided to introduce them and our captain hook, one of our older chickens with not nice, and she started trying to attack and kill the new chicken specifically Hannover. And so we got a small coup to protect the new one. Yes. And I finally said to captain hook, look here girl. You have got to shape up. Earth's going to be solitary isolation. Right? And they're all going to be having the run of the coupe and watching you in here, right? Yeah. Yeah. And did she shape up? No, not yet. Okay. Are you glad you? I am. I am too more chicken names coming up. I, it's going to be Oprah Frey and Ellen behaviorists. Oh, that's good from the baby checks. Good. All right. That's a door will take care of them, of course. Okay. I don't want anything to happen to know. Captain hook will not get a hold the island. All right, good. You can get more of Ellen on the Ellen Degeneres show weekdays. Yeah, and I learned that I don't want chickens after she told me how often she has to clean that that cage because they, they tend to have droppings and I don't want to have to clean more than I clean litter all the time. I mean, cat litter is enough. I don't need to chicken cleaning cat litter. I'm cleaning cat litter. Like when I'm home like three times a day because I don't like it to be. I have two boxes because we have three cats, so I don't want them to have to because that's. Oh, yeah, no more chickens. Hi, I'm Mary Conley. Executive producer of the Ellen Degeneres show.

She's going to ask me about it. Yeah, she's well. She's been asking me if I'm going to be on it because she listens to it and she. So she said, when will you be on? And I said, I, they haven't asked me, but I'll see. And then when. Line. Now, here's the thing. The only exception to the Halloween show being the highest rated show of the season between the top of the season and twelve days is Porsche to Rossy as our lead guest. Yes, that's worship as our lead was the highest rated show that year of all shows including Halloween show. Well, yeah, and she doesn't enjoy doing talk shows even with me night. She doesn't like she's married to. Doesn't like doing. Talk shows no Shans yet those a lovely talk show is, is a terrific talk. Yes, she's gotten better because shouldn't have anything to promote anymore. Like when she was an actress, she just hated it because she thought she had to have funny stories. I hope our listeners know about general public because Porsche Dorsey has started an unbelievable company where they take real artists and reproduce their paintings exactly with a technology that I don't understand. It's on canvas. You can feel the paint and I have six pieces in my house at this amazing. It's it's an absolutely amazing idea. And it came from her brain. She takes its doing ration- hardware at all. Our h, yes, restoration hardware, all's all stores and online. They just got another order for five hundred pieces. I mean, they're, they're just selling out like crazy. But what she did is like a rich housewife soon I not going to need us. She did was she just decided because we love our. It and we collect art, and there's so many good artists out there and it's such a racket because you know, unless you represented by a gallery, it's kind of the same thing as as being an actor and not having the right agent like it's really hard to get your workout there. If you don't have a gallery representing you. So she just started this company called general public where artists will submit their pieces and instead of they're having one piece of art sold for whatever it is two thousand dollars or whatever they would sell it for she scans it, she buys it, she sends it back to them and then they can sell that one. And then they get royalties for each one that she sells at restaurant hardware. So they get mailbox says scans that we're talking about like twenty twenty four th century technology the future, can you touch that and you touch the, you can't tell the difference because of the texture. But I want to say that all women artists, especially women are as that don't get represented by galleries. So there's a lot of amazing people from all over the world that that she's representing that. That get work now and money, and these are, you know, incredible artists, and they just don't have another venue and they're selling out like crazy. So anyway, not bragging piece hanging in my home. Yeah. How many have now. I just bought two more on Friday and they got delivered on Friday. That's amazing. I love him. Credible. Yeah. No, I bought him a lorry was in a hurry. So we went right to portion Porsche, took him off the wall, general public and then had him brought to my house. So. Cool. You're having a party? Yes. Well, yes, lorries were hosting a bunch of school. Parents don't tell me how I. What's I know? It's open house parents for the parents at the school. Was there. So the coda Johnson was here, you know, or from the fifty shades of grey and has a new film has a new film where she what about before. The different. Okay. What about instantly calling out for being pregnant? Well, here's the morning. The morning of her appearance is broken on the news that perhaps she and Chris Martin are having a baby, and perhaps it's a boy. And so Dakota made her entrance onto the show in a beautiful white skirt, those kind of short and you know snug. And when she sat down, I believe what else said to her was that's mighty tight skirt for someone who is pregnant. And she says, she's not pregnant so fun. It wasn't a party. It was a birthday party that apparently I was not invited to. Because she was all over your party drinking, all your alcohol, eating, a lot of your food remembered going, oh, there's, there's Johnson began eating eating food. Then I said, there's no way she had a party and didn't invite Ellen. She comes on the show. We ask her guess what? She had a party and didn't invite well, and, but she also said that she hadn't been directly invited to Ellen's parts. She came with Chris Martin, I would have invited her had a now. I do have a number and she has my number. So she had no excuse. It's good to see you. Dakota. You look fantastic. Did you try that on before you of? Do you want a blanket or anything. Hey. Here. I just let's put that right there. I have. And I'm this crazy fake tattoo on my arm, and I didn't know that it was going to show in the outfit. It does. The least of your concern right now is that is that tattoo? Yeah, let's just put some more. Does that? I feel good. All right, good. That is a mighty tight outfit for someone who's pregnant. I mean, you. See the don't even know you. Well, well, well, this is Thursday, but Monday it came out that you were pregnant, and so I'm just saying, how's that going? Well. I'm the only thing I'm pregnant with his a lot of really good ideas. Yeah, you're pregnant with a lot of good ideas but not any babies. No. So what happened was, I guess someone saw a party. Yeah. Well, it was my birthday. Yeah. Have you balloons that happens to be pink and blue. And so then I was pregnant? Yeah. Because they assumed when the balloons were released that it was a reveal like a gender reveal. Yeah, but but the I, yeah, that's what happened. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. I don't know. I. I didn't know that the balloons were gonna be released. They were just in like an arch, but I guess that accidentally happened. One of the ends just got let go. Yeah, because I didn't think released balloons. I just don't think they're going to release blues, but and then the so that didn't believe that. But then they thought that it was a reveal. So yeah, but no, but a lot of people congratulated me. So now maybe you want to get pregnant because you get so much attention a lot of within. Yeah, that's really good. Just having it be my birthday. Yeah. So what was it just a party at the house because I couldn't make it. But what what happened? Other thing is that now I had to be like it was just my birthday and then all the people that I didn't invite to my. I mean, I invited you to mind and you came to mind. Yeah. Well, I think I kind of crashed your birthday party. I just came. I knew Andy, I knew you aren't Gandhi. I knew you'd be with him. I didn't have your number at the time which is why invited him, and I knew he'd bring you, but now I have your number and I'll call you directly. And now you have my number so you could have called invited. I didn't invite anybody. I didn't really on. Oh, it was a surprise. But it was no, it wasn't a surprise. Was not.

It's an online only furniture company that by eliminating the layers of traditional retail you normally have to go through. It's able to keep its prices insanely low and the quality very high. I'm literally looking at their website as we speak right now and near is a beautiful leather sofa. A price, like half of what I've been seeing out there. Well, here's what cool weather. Here's what they're able to do. There's no showrooms. Okay. No sales people so that what what does that translate into just savings? Fantastic. I mean, I'm looking at this Luna lounge chair, which I think is cool. They have these walnut dining chairs for under two hundred dollars. This is really a cool website article dot com. Yeah, and they're also I know like you're thinking who wants to buy furniture online because you've got to pay four thousand dollars for shipping. Exactly. They're serious about shipping no matter how many items every order ship a flat rate for nine bucks. So if you need some help, getting things set up article has options for in room delivery and for assembly assistance. I enjoy. I enjoy assembly assistant. And if they have the item in stock, you can get it in two weeks or less just fantastic. I hate when I order something I'm really excited about and then they say, great, we got your order. It'll be there in six weeks furniture is the worst of how long it contained stock items as Kevin just said two weeks or less, and they have the the the, they have the best customer service in the business. They're all about the customer coming first with a thirty day return policy. I, I'm pretty sure that's honestly the best customer service in the biz. Yeah. So let's say you get yourself like a flirt table. Then. No, I'm looking at the bird. Is he's doing his Kia bit. And it doesn't come with an Allen tell you. I'm telling you I'm looking at this stuff.

I've been scrolling on this website for most of this pod. I'm looking at six things in my car ready. I'm looking at this and Andy who rarely tells the truth is actually scrolling. I always tell the truth. I can't believe Eleanor left before we started talking about Britney Spears. So now that she has lived, I can be honest about how much I love how much love Ellen Ellen knows how much I love her by try to hide how much I love Britney. You try to hide how much you love because because we all know you love Britney. I think I'm like a crazy. So I think would I think what Ellen doesn't know is that Kevin seems to love Britney more than Ellen now be true. I don't think that I don't think that's true. So Kev darling, give us a little bit about your love for Britney Spears. Well, I've been to Vegas show several several times. You don't wear special shirts or anything. When you go there, you especial shirts every time we go to meet and greet with her one time, which were you nervous? Oh, my gosh. Yeah, I love. I don't even like I hate talking to celebrities. Yeah, an ovoid so nervous. The only one more with Brittany spears. Jesse Ferguson was in line in front of us to meet her. Wait, hold on. So Jesse title Ferguson was in front of you in front of us in the meet and greet right. Talk to her about his bow ties, and she enjoyed that. And then we walk up and someone said, oh, it's Tim's birthday. Can you say happy birthday, Brittany? And she said, happy birthday, Tim, and that was my interaction with Brittany that's test and took a picture and we're on our way. Oh gosh, I love me. Yes, in the shows we, she's insane. Her dancing has gotten so good. She's like, she's fantastic. She made a surprise cameo on our show and she made a cameo now to announce where she, she shows me. She had an announcement to make? Yes. What are you kidding me? It's it's wonderful that you're here. But what are you doing here? I actually have a huge announcement to make new. Yes, I do. Oh, wow. I do. Normally we plan these things I had a time. I'm gonna make an exception. What is your announcement? My announcement is actually that I have an announcement. All right? Yes. Okay. So there's announcement to make an announcement, and what is the announcement of the announcement at? Can't announce the announcement until October eighteen. Oh, you're a bit early. It's weird to say that you're gonna nounce something on October eighteenth. You know what? I'll do. I have an announcement about your announcement. What I'll do is when you make your announcement on October eighteenth, I will let you do it on my YouTube channel. Oh, wow, thank you. Well, yeah, it would be good, right? Yes. I like. Right. It's that simple. It's settled. Britney. Spears will make a big announcement on my YouTube channel on October eighteenth, Brittany spears everybody. It's the first time we've ever done anything like this. We should in sixteen years. It's the first time we've ever had a star on to make an announcement to say that she has an announcement on the only way that it happened. This time is that we have a music producer named Johnny Norman who duped us girls, Johnny to be fair, had an appendicitis attack. And so we, you know, suddenly was like, she's here. She's going to make an announcement that she hasn't announcement. Yes. Now show of hands. Is anyone this room know what the announcement is going to be when she actually makes the announcement I do now, I know what the announcement is going to. I do not know. Wow. I, you know, I did some digging. Yeah. Am I going to say this the I think you're the announcement Mary you, you come in later in labor leader. That's because I get all my work done faster than you get your work done. I know a lot of say. A lot of say, well, what I can tell you when this announcement occurs, it will be a production. The announcement itself will be production on our YouTube channel, and it will be on our YouTube channel. And while I think that the announcement today may have felt like we under liver. The announcement itself is going to be worth the price of at least the audience got something today, right? She announced that there's going to be announcement then. Did she give the audience? I want the audience got to see Britney Spears live in person looking, absolutely beautiful. They were happy and healthy. They were thrilled they were. They were absolutely thrilled. You can get a lot more of that and a lot more of Ellen on Ellen genre show weekdays. We could give our podcast listeners something. Normally you see things on the show I and then like you hear them here I can give you saying I if you guys want Britney Spears at a bedtime story for us. Yes. And for our podcast, listeners will play it for you. Now, are you saying this is a podcast exclusive loose from? Did you just make that unilateral decision? What. Maybe if you could say we don't hear that part. No, that's great. That's don't feel like Elliott should get everything we were. We go into Ellen and brief Ellen right before the show just go over the last changes. Yeah, I go, where's calve? Because Kevin always comes into that briefing and everyone was like, no, no, no, no, no. Don't worry, Kevin is with Britney recording the bedtime story. And I was like, all right. Well, we leave Kevin where he needs to be nicer, Jason Europe, you're coming in. Yup. If Bruce Springsteen never ends up on our show, I'm going to need to help them out with the bedtime story. You got it. So. It's bedtime bitch. The end. With Brittany really familiar with the podcast that she talked to about it to ask me a lot of questions. Yeah, hot cast you hearing that a lot of celebrities are listening. All right. She wasn't the only Mickey Mouse club member we had to day. Why are we glossing over this lossing gloss. Yeah. How about that fact that the two of them are here on the same day lost the other one Ryan Gosling Ryan. Gosling. Was he Britney Spears two original members of the Mickey Mouse club on the Ellen show in the building at the same time? Yeah, pretty cool. Not original members of the Mickey Mouse club? The new Mickey Mouse. Okay. Still pretty the first one. Like a Netflix nutshell. Yeah. Okay. When you think different age group that that think about that class of the Mickey Mouse club, Justin, Timberlake Britney Spears Ryan Gosling JC says a other famous people who I don't really know Christina. No, no, but but like if you're the casting person at Disney who casted is in Timberlake, Ryan, Gosling Britney Spears jaycees show that that's I know that casting guy, Matt Casella is a friend of mine and he was the guy who cast that show. So he says, Kay, Sarah. What did you say? Okay. Do something with Sarah. Really. Well, how about. Wants to be on TV. Let's do with Katie, wants to be on little big shots and keeps asking me why? Why? How can she get on a little bit big talent, unclear, she just wants to be on it. All right. And I tell her to talk to Jamie Shapiro. I'll tell you what's on right, Christina. Aguilera on the Mickey Mouse club. Thank you very much gore. Mary Russell, Matt Cassara, older. Well, and also we had a special guest at our audience for the Ryan Gosling show. Oh, that would be the one and only Laurie last night Lori lasts ner. Andy's wife Lori brought some friends to see the Ryan Gosling show and he anything. He said she was just laughing. Her, and I'm just going to tell you she really loves to clearing you. I really love our last nerve Laurie last nurse hangs. Yeah, hangs the moon. Yeah, that's brace. Well, it's true. So halloween's coming up and I understand like you, this is a very, you love the holiday. I do like so much so that you leave, is this true? They said that you leave the decorations up year round. You don't take Halloween decorations down. What do you have out there right now? Well, you got your stones. You've got a lot of like sneaky skulls. You know what happens on your, which, which is just what's that? What? What about Christmas? I think they, they go well together. I don't think they're mutually exclusive stay. You add Christmas decorations during Christmas, and then you've taken Christmas Christmas, I like spooky things. Yes, but wait till you put them out there for Christmas, and then you take them out, but leave the Halloween. The people in the neighborhood must really be upset by that because it's one thing. There are people who leave Christmas decorations up year round to leave tombstones up year round, and which is in bats is different. The munsters on our blog. I bet you are. I bet you are. So let's talk about you learning how to fly. Did you get your license? Oh, no, no. How far did you get for at all? What did you like this? You know, Neil played Neil Armstrong in this film? I man and and flight was you know, he was Neal was flying before he could drive. So it felt like a something I should learn how to do. Right. And from honest, I thought you always hear about celebrities flying. So I thought, how hard could it be? Celebrities can do liberty. It's gotta be. It's very hard. Yeah. No, yeah. So you learned on like a small like a twin engine thing? Yeah, I'd like a Cessna and. It was the asked me to take it into a stall like a self-imposed stall, and I thought, you know what else is stalled? My interest in flying. So you were, is it your first flight? No, I had taken like says they don't do the stall, like right away. Yeah, they. 'cause they you give a little bit of experience before you tell someone to stall, so you go into a free dive? Yeah. One of my first few lessons we flew over my house and I waved to my kids and I thought I could get used to this. That's fun. Yeah. And then he said, let's put it into a stall and I thought, oh, let's let's land. Then my time learning other things, I'll wait to my kids from the car, Porsche, learn how to fly Porsche learned on a helicopter and he has, yeah, that's I don't even understand the paddles and all that stuff. But yes, she got her. I don't know if she got her license, but she has many, many hours on a helicopter. But yeah, I know very impressive. She's quite something that woman. One thing for listeners before we go, and he's one of those people who will never ask for help himself. He doesn't like the burden anybody. He talked me before the podcast, he'd love our listeners help. He has a sore on his Libya. That's real. Are we talking. Help. And if you have any says, is it something topical cream? I says, not what is looking for in their pockets. That's a stubborn. I mean, he's this is not what they're looking for from the sun or stress, probably fine. Probably subscribed today on apple podcasts or wherever you're listening to us right now and don't forget to watch Ellen weekdays for even more Ellen fund. That I could be button realize. James.

You can text me directly because I like to you but really today this this. WE'RE GONNA kick off talking about Mary Connolly things. We're talking about Mary. Connolly up we're GONNA talk about David Letterman. Sure and and Mary Conner. Only for those. Who Don't know came up on the David Letterman show started as the receptionist worked her way up to producer produced all the celebrity guests for Dave but also developed a relationship with Dave where she was kind of one of the favorites and he'd play baseball spoil with her in the office? He put on this show where she would throw. Footballs with actual. NFL quarterback because she knew how to throw a football and things came full circle for you the week with Dave. And why don't you tell everyone. Well it's true. I started out as a patron NBC. And then got hired to work on late night with David. Letterman stayed through into the transition to late show with David Letterman. CBS and I had a great friendship with Dave. We had uh we had a lot of fun together and I would brief him on segments. I was a segment producer. There and I would brief him on segments. And while I would do that we would either toss a football or the baseball when I left the show it was a it was a tough. It was tough split bitter saying I'm sure it was bittersweet because I just said that I was leaving. I didn't give the show. Oh a chance to Make me an offer to get me to stay. I you made up your mind to move to California And that That hurt Dave's feelings And understandable understand now seventeen years later David. Letterman appears on The Ellen show and all that just washed away and his fondness for you was really really fun to to see and be around it. It was it was very obvious how much she loved you. So sweet well he even will play. Play the clip. This I quit will be. This is going to be Dave telling the story about Dave when Mary having a cash with a baseball sixth floor of thirty rock the fourteenth four only eight stories higher teams floor and in a baseball going through the window. So let's start with that. Take a listen to that Rebecca David Letterman and. I am fortunate enough when I started this show sixteen years ago. We had A Great Group of Executive Producers One of which is Mary who was a producer on your show for years but to say eight. Mary was a producer on the show for years. How many years ten years I was at the show woolley macro ten years but more than producer? Mary was a dear dear. A friend and I can remember being. Ill behaved when she came to me with the news that she was leaving because I I was I was hurt. My feeling really really hurt. I was so fond of this woman. And look at it for God's sake talking to not be the every day look at the two of you there only God. It looks looks like the police of broken in the Mary knows the story and honest to God it was the worst day of my television life. And maybe the were stay of my life. You're on the ground floor here more or less right so on this particular day marian a throwing baseballs hard bulls gloves throwing the ball and Mary can bring it. There is no question about that and and we're trying to get that just that perfect whack you get when the ball hits. The pocket and Mary was on one corner. I was on the other corner and one got away from me and it went up and over and through. The window of the fourteenth floor of the thirty rock building and down below was sixth avenue and the sidewalk. Well you know how many are dead. And I'm I'm stunned and so I go over to where the window is and I'm just kind of hiding and looking down there and there wasn't really any commotion to Speed Up. People were looking at people were looking because shards of glass at rain down on on the Avenue of Americas and I see a guy down there and I can hear him say hey dave letterman the spending the rest of my life in prison. It's a miracle no one got hurt. Good point many people don't know so in a situation like that what do you do what do you do. What do you do in a situation like that you tell me about you know what you do in a situation like that I would just back up slowly from the window? No no no you send an intern down. That's what you do. We have to go to break. You took lots of chances because one of my appearances on your show. I hit a golf ball from one building building people hitting golf balls which also could have gone badly but we were doing it but that would have been on you. I I WANNA be mentioned that right after that we had the windows covered with. It's called LEXCEN. Glass the stuff you see at hockey games saved bulletproof all the windows covered with that smart problem solving. That's right. Most people would just stop playing with the Baseball but oh sure yeah yeah okay. So that was. That was one of the scarier days of my life. Yeah Bet and we had played catch for really really longtime and we were really good at it. Yeah and this just happened and it. It was terrifying. That'd be manslaughter. If he would've get someone you know I don't know AH game over. It's all over. But what are they unintentional homicide. What do they call that in involuntary voluntary? Yeah yeah no that that is horrifying. It was horrifying. And it's also a miracle that thing's falling out of that building didn't hit any yes and in the commercial break. After Dave told that story he he. We went up to home base to to say hi and he was like like what were we thinking like. We're like out of our minds. What were we thinking that we could do that? And we we headed all under control. We thought we knew exactly exactly what we're doing. What did that feel like? After all you went through with Letterman and all you've gone through with Ellen to be sitting on the stage watching the two of them talk and tell a story about you. It was it was it was incredible. It was really special because Ellen is doing is Netflix show and Net flicks wanted me to go win and say hi to Dave and they wanted to tape that and right before that happened. I was excited but also a little nervous and I walked thin and we said hi to each other and he had some footballs. They're waiting for us to throw the way. We used to throw scrape and it was instantly. I was talking to my old friend. He was like what your brother doing. What's going on with like his kids? What like we were just catching up? The way old friends would catch up and and all of the twenty some odd years just melted away and I was just having a conversation with a with an old friend that is law so it was really. It was very special so in the eighties and nineties. He had legions of fans who watched the show every single night and like quoted Ham and Aleinu. Yeah Judy knew the recurring characters. It was like Yeah Fun little clubhouse that you were in if you were if you were too young unlike your parents watched Carson and you watched letterman or at least that was my. That was my experience growing up. You know and if you watch letterman. You knew Mary because Mary was on the show regularly. I mean you were throwing footballs with Phil Simms with boomer and like I remember watching was hall hilarious and I I remember in two thousand one two thousand and two Hillary St McLaughlin with the time was the president of pictures saying to me. You know we've got at this woman and she's consulting on this on the show doing and I want you to. We're we're having this event in New York and I want you to meet her and I said Great. What's her name? She said Mary Connolly and I went Mary Connolly Mary Connolly she goes you know her I go yeah I mean. She doesn't know me but I know her absolutely well. You know everything. That's hilarious carries everything I know about working on a talk show. I learned from Dave yet and I learned from that show. And you know I a lot of talk shows or modeled it. You know the behind the scenes stuff on how segments are presented to the host. How music celebrities? Celebrity driven comedy and Would sorta came from what is created over there so it was. It was particularly special to see the moment of seeing Dave and Ellen up there talking to each other and making each other laugh and really loving on each other. Yeah it was weird sting is that Letterman went off the air before Kevin Leman even was actually born now. It's one of my biggest complaints about Mary. I work for the first five years I worked here. I'm like I just WanNa hear Letterman store. Yeah just tell me and finally we sat next to each other on a flight to Orlando side. Five hours of Letterman stories made me so happy. I'm I'm I'm so proud of my time. There I would be happy to show you letterman stories all the time as a fellow gay hate generalizations and stereotypes but why do all lesbians know how to throw. Footballs unpack that sentiment. I generalizations. Why do all lesbians know how to throw? Footballs here's what I'm going to tell you. I grew up in New York City and I have a brother and a father who are both very into sports and we just learned to play catch because catches a game. You could play in a straight straight line right so we would be out on the sidewalk in front of in front of our brownstone and we would play catch. And so you'd play catch with the ball for as long as you can play catch with the ball and then if you played with the football my father and my brother taught me how to throw a football and their canopies on our on our block on thirty thirty six street between parking legs. And then you could throw Football's or balls over the canopy apartment building to then catch her awning running to catch the ball on the other side and that became so it was just a little. Did you know it was just what you did Ellen. Did his chauffeur net flicks. My next guest needs it's no introduction.

And so who walk in and we haven't got around the corner yet but we hear screaming and we get around the corner wondering is this huge man in sweats and I don't know what over like basketball shorts and he's pulling At this girl she's like shaking the squirrel and so marriage just starts screaming and takes off and I start screaming and take off to and think I'm I'm going to get killed. Life Ramp is GonNa kill me so anyway so we're running and running and the guide turns around and he sees us and he starts running towards awards us and then I thought we're really going to get killed but we both split off in the opposite directions and we got to the girl and he kind of had ripped her clothes close but she kept her purse and that's what he wanted and then we're like trying to fix her all up you know and you know we have nothing. But we're sticking it in their bras. STRAPPER offers shirt thinks she looks at us and she screams and she said Oh my God. I'm a singing waitress. And no one's GonNa believe I got mugged and same story. We talked about at seventy two years. Old How great share look. Oh my gosh. Her is insane her but so insane Ellen Aster about her but and in sixteen years. I'm not sure I've ever seen that happen. Share her. Can I tell people how old you are. Yeah can you believe she's seventy two years old the work out a lot you do every day not every day but a lot of times. Okay I need to ask ask because we were tired here. See me doing a plank with the Harry Smith. No well it was good. He quit before I did. How long can you do a plank for well I I once I did five minutes but I'll never do that again? Wow but I could do it for two two minutes with sweat yet. Michelle Obama Obama wants to challenge because we did pushups and she's now like she said plank is her thing. I think she could do it for five minutes. You should challenge Michelle weight the because we were watching in rehearsal and we were talking about your ass and I need to know what you do. We want to know. So your butt exercises. Well I have a number of them like like okay. Okay so this is sounds so dumb because when I say the first thing I know you're GonNa do something really not. Yes you are. Well try you so you get done. I'll force okay. Okay someone else in the room know well sometimes okay so you get down on all fours and you put your leg up l. with right and the I'm just do it up like that. I know right I know that one fire hydrants. Yes these are like not new thing. Then I've got a Khulumani Times. You do that up in the air. Three sets of twenty five twenty five right and then I have a power played and you. Do you do squats. What's your just do the old fashioned things and I have to confess I do zoom zoom? Oh you do it at home. Yeah I would like to see that. No okay she brings out like the silly side of Ellen Ellen in a way that a lot of guests don't we were saying like her and Michelle Obama. They don't put up with her shenanigans right. They throw it right back on her face and he just loves it it. It's so fun to watch her. As producers servers we always love when. Someone's out there and Challenges Ellen pokes her little well share shares. Very confident in who she is and what she does and she doesn't need to take any any grief from Ellen and she knows literally the opposite of me literally you see share onstage rehearsing or song and you go like my God She has been doing this forever. She is like the consummate professional knows. Exactly what to do has incredible comic timing and just it just brings it so now. Kevin had a brilliant idea that none of us thought would actually happen in which he was overdue for. We have but dr dry bar next to my favorite drinking place. Don Kuko's Lisa Industry Chip Kevin Leong Kuko's and get blow out not worried about you're going to say so. Yeah dry bars just opened and of course share play stylist and Mermaids Ellen has hair so who better better team to go and surprise people there and have them do their blowouts and Ellen and share and I was like there's no way share it's going to go with L. into the dry bar and blow hair covering the reaction to the folks in the drive bar when the door opens and Ellen and share walk into the brand new dry bar into Luca Lake it was awesome is fantastic. Share share instantly. Said yes ellen got early to do it. It was so much fun. We shot it and cut it all on the same day. I think we're putting the whole thing up on ellen tubes you can definitely see the whole thing there if he were sure. I wrote the car with share over there. And Kinda pissed her through some ideas he wanted to do and told her where we had some whigs hidden but and he was a little shaking voice and Kevin never gets nervous. A little shaky shakey celebrities. Still Shaky made me happy. It was fun. And like that's the coolest thing about our job is like Kevin Leman grew up loving share air and now he's producing her in comedy piece so it really is a cool job and it never gets old to me. Mary tell the story of Kevin Leman. I'm so glad you asked Ed so Kevin Kevin Leman came to us out of the NBC page program. He began as really sort of just a young man who was mostly straight or confused with his sexuality is surgery but yeah great. We hired him. I believe as a production assistant assistant and he was a producer's assistant. He did a number if things very quickly he became a writer after submitting some material to Alan how many years before he became a writer too so so meteoric but we were you need in the first few weeks of the show well. He appeared on the very first episode of the Ellen. Degeneres show great because he's an amazing. He's an amazing artist. Full face He became a writer he then became the head writer. And in that you become the head writer so two years in. We're starting our sixteenth season in in season. Three you became a writer and then when did you become the head writer. I think officially seasons seven long story Short Kevin is now an executive producer. Ellen made him yeah okay all right okay. That's pretty much. And he's an EP when I was young and I'm old. But here's what's interesting Ed. How long have we all been together at the Ellen Degeneres Show sixteen years? We've been here since the beginning. Yeah never never. This is really the first time anyone who wanted to hear what we've had to say. I'm not sure if they want to marry. Oh well that's the first time we're at this point we have zero listeners. Left Kev. There was such an amazing moment in that piece. There's such an incredible moment. If you know sixteen years years in it feels like everything has happened but how often does someone call Ellen a word. LYNN LOVES COMES TO TO POKE POKE POKE and push buttons and share put up with it for a while and then just unleashed a little bit on Ellen in a way that made made Ellen Laugh her head off da Scott Star in two zero whereas you know if you could reach a star. You can't really give them to somebody over. There would be hot. Running learning doesn't even make sense right. No her yes. She knows me better than they know you. You know share had been poked by Ellen enough that share are turned around and just said the B Word share called Ellen a bitch in a way that was fantastic whole Larrea. Yeah everyone thoroughly enjoyed it especially ellen yet. Do you guys follow share on twitter. By the way I do. She's you know she is something. The amount emojis she. It's like my kids. Nobody uses emojis more than that woman. And she'll actually sense something meaner than sometimes absolutely nothing so they literally mean it. I always think it's like she fell on her keyboard. That's what it was she and she talked about it with Ellen about how sometimes she does a great job within other times not so great very very active on twitter. I don't know if you follow her. But if you do you'd know she's very active on twitter if you don't follow her you should good and you should follow her. You should follow me if you follow me on twitter. You should follow me on instagram. What are we talking about shares tweets? Yes so so. She's very active. Here's one of her tweets and it's iheart apples hearted it all four XS. I've lived here weakest smell seven so I don't you know what it means but I think he kissed mouth but she just wears her heart on her sleeve like she just she tweets which he feels and if she feels enraged she tweets rage age and she knows it. And she's you know she's she's self-aware she told you know. She tells us that she sometimes has to delete tweet to take them back like she's I duNNo. Now she's just so like real after all this time on on camera and in the business you just got a lover. I also loved that. She was so open about talking about being dyslexic and and how emojis actually helper in terms of her dyslexia but that was interesting they they helper and then sometimes she then with all her emojis it it gets. It's a little discombobulated. We gotta get to this exciting guest today. We have a legit celebrity a real elaborate real live celebrity. Have someone more famous than you.

Was the seven uptake yesler uptake. Yes and you lost your mind Mhm How'd you get the idea to do those videos. Honestly there was no thought about it. It just happen you just came to me. It was just like you should make video about this. I put on my phone press record Lord and just uploaded. Were you looking for recipes. or how'd you come across. It was sponsored. Add onto my facebook feed. I was about to go to work and then and I saw it and I was just like okay so then you put you post this people start following it. uh-huh what is your for. How what are you doing where are you when you get a call from the own degeneres show okay? I know exactly where I was in class. Actually in because so much was happening I was like keeping up with my social media so I checked my phone's and blue right and all I I saw was a TV dot com. I remember I grabbed my friend. I said Gras Ellen called and I got up and I left the room and I called back. I was like what what do I need to do. Tell me I will stay up if you need me to call in. I will do whatever you need me to do. Stay up by color and that was the beginning. How true I I was here the next week and then we hired him before he graduated yet not yet graduated? You're going to graduate. That's going to be fine but in the time you also school. Did you graduate. The idea I finished I was coming here during the day but we had L. A. Program. So I finished my last semester here over rally studio so I was going to class at night. uh-huh being And now you're a college graduate just indeed tax it turns out uh-huh what's we love it. It's so much fun having Kaelin here. It's so much fun. Your offices downstairs right. Yes yes okay so but you're often up here on this floor his office on the fourteenth floor and we're here on the eighth floor. Well you know the a good thing as a as a as a person who is sort of manager of of Kayla's maybe you could even say a boss of Kaelin's the way that he spends money on this beautiful wardrobe that he has is a wonderful thing because he always needs more keep working jerry. Jim Paradorn style is so unique. Like you change it up one day. You've got the flare one day you're like today. You're all kind of butch. This is to change it up. I'll tell you I was watching a Bohemian rhapsody for the fourth time. Okay and just the way. He expressed himself in his clothing and was like this is who I am. It made me think of you of how like you. Don't give give a F- like this who I am and you own it and you never don't look unbelievable. This is a question Freddie. Mercury does a lot of credit. This is a question my daughter Sarah would want to ask you. Where do you shop for your clothes? ooh I shop. Actually you know what I shop. A lot found a good a lot of good step at top shop in the women's department. Though interesting interesting the last time I Like suit and it was in women's how has your life changed since coming to the Ellen. Show IT'S A. Yeah that's a great question thank you. I don't even know how can put into words honestly it is honestly I feel like I live in a dream like state every single day. Every single day It was funny. Because you know Brad Cooper was on the show and he was talking about the grammy's and he was like how he laughed about win win. Expect to my grandma death me like when people bring up like the stuff that I've done here at the show I'm like Oh yeah. I guess I did do that. Didn't cause it's all happening so fast. That is yeah I I don't I don't get to like suck it in anytime but is absolutely amazing. I think it's always perfect to in really a great thing if you have someone like yourself. WHO's really happy? And what they're doing right now and I don't I second ever believe that that means will then you're stagnant minter. You'll just stay where you are. That's just not at all how it works. You're really happy with what you're doing now. And that means it will only grow and expand. What's he was saying? When you say would you say being on our podcast for the first time is as exciting as the first time you did the show? I absolutely absalom doesn't listen so I agree using followers. Do you remember Kaelin. Do you remember where you were when you learned learned that you were going to be on the podcast. I do this last week in the hallway. Like Oh yeah. This is a call. Everyone you knew to tell them. You're doing the best idea because the only see y'all in passing. I spent some time. Like here's the thing that's amazing raising about Kayla of we've been doing this for a long time on chef and we've we've gotten into business with a number of guests who've been on the show yes MM maybe most notably to this point either grayson chance or Safiya Grayson. Rosie thing about Kaelin is that we just let Kale and just make room home for Kaelin Kaelin and you need a lot of room for that. We don't try to. We reject pitches. That don't feel organic him. A lot of people wanna like do business business with us and make Kaelin a part of it and we reject stuff if it doesn't feel right for him and then we just let Kaelin have ideas and he just he just gets to be him and it. It has been so unbelievably successful for all of us. Even if you don't follow Kaelin on social media you should got got to right away. One of the things I love about Kaelin is I'm a snarky. Bad Person on social media is such and in real life breath of warm and fresh air and PAS. It's like what you need in your feet. What he's done so well here like there's no one more authentic nick cave? And then there's these pillars that we like everything the show to be like carrying and new and different and hilarious and unpredictable.

Nicki Minaj, Mark Wahlberg, Anna Kendrick

"Hi, it's me Dame Judi Dench. I'm kidding. It's Ellen isn't weird how much we sounded like though, anyway, welcome to my podcast. We're gonna listen to some of the best moments from the show, and it's going to be hosted by four executive producers that I love. They have been with me from every every single show from the very beginning so they know a lot. And if they say anything that I wouldn't like, please tweet me happy listening on today's episode. Nikki Manashe gets personal about her love life, Ellen dozen, impromptu g m a day interview. My boyfriend Mark Wahlberg talks all about a dump truck. My girlfriend, Anna Kendrick, performs the rap. Welcome to our podcast. This is very exciting. Thank selling for that nice introduction. I'm Mary Conley. I'm Andy lasts ner. I'm Ed glavin. I'm Kevin Leman the second. So yeah, we're really excited about this podcast, Ellen Nastase if we were willing to do it and we said, sure and asked her how much we'd get paid for it. And she said nothing. And so here we are. I thought that was a joke when getting a penny for this. Anyway, we're very excited about it and hopefully you'll be listening to us every Tuesday and Thursday where we're going to give you some of the clips that we really loved from the past week show and also give you some behind the scenes of how harsh, oh, gets made every day. We always like to be highly topical in our premier, and nobody seemed to be getting more press this summer in the entertainment world than the Queen herself. Nicki Menaj over her album drop over her Queen radio. She was trending on Twitter and we said, any chance we can get Nikki for our premier and she showed up what I will tell you about Nikki Manashe is that Nikki Manashe does not disappoint. I'm not sure if this is a, this is a easy thing for these guys that to to accommodate or or not, but you enjoy exercising three times a day. Well, I would set what you say. Yes. It depends if you have someone that you don't see on a regular basis, it's not like if you living with the person that you see them every night. But if you see them, you know, like once twice a week and yeah, three times a night when I see you three times a night. Okay. And if you can't hang goodbye. When you say three times, is it spread out over the night or just three times right away? It has to be well, no more than a half an hour between each things. No more than half hour. And then I understand you don't enjoy being touched or cuddled afterwards. I, hey, cuddling after I hate all every man legs is like you notice. Ellen is like once I get mine, if I feel really, really great leave me alone. Don't make me some food or damage or something will make a sandwich. Go make a sandwich, like. First of all, I don't. I know you all thinking. I can't believe Ellen is talking about this show. I always feel so like a radar on Ellen. I'm sorry. I tried to be nice and you know, but she pushes new species. Don't blame me network. They don't care. Okay. There is curious as I am you like huddling before. Okay. I like to link I mean, but I do. I do end up getting men who likes to kiss a lot and I like kissing a lot, but it's just like okay to it. Is that what you mean? Oh, definitely get to it. So you don't do your workplace do trap to do in Harvey up? I don't got all of that. I'm just gonna say is a fifty one year old man. I'm good for exercising about three times a month too much information and he likes to exercise alone. I'm just going to say Swiss ball to all of it. Going to say what you. To say, yum, Nikki does this thing where she spontaneously will hop on Twitter and give money away to help people with their education. And that feels so in our world, and it was still pay for their book. She gets on the DMZ with them, and it was. It was so exciting that we wanted to like be part of that we wanted to play that game with Nikki. Have you ever sent a d. m. to to anybody that and you didn't hear back? Actually, yes. With the last batch of students wanna we send. I think his name was with a j. we sent to the, but he never responded something with a. I think it was like a Jawad or something like that. Jacobite. Jakup. Yeah, yes, yeah. He didn't respond because he's here. Oh. Oh. Yeah, yeah. Let's let's go say hi to them. Where do you go to school university report? What are you taking door major in music. Oh, do you do thing? Well, well. Something. Move you. He. Beautiful, beautiful. It was music to my ears. So I, you just heard me say, would WalMart is doing and WalMart want wants to help you and give you fifty thousand dollars. I'm really good. Where do you go to school? Cal State Fullerton. Seeing what are you taking nursing student? Their nursing? Yes. Alright. In what year are you in? I'm a junior. Junior. And how much debt you have right now? Just taking up forty thousand twenty thousand dollars. It's a lot, but you wanna be a nurse to a really good thing. We'll find a nurse. I wanna be a labor and delivery nurse. Oh yeah. Right? So we won't help you as well. WalMart wants to help you with fifty thousand. Draper come on. So you wanna be nurses? Well, no, wanna be a doctor. What kind of doctor do you wanna be neuro surgery. So you're in debt, I assume. All right. So WalMart wants to help you and give you fifty thousand. Just seeing Nikki in our audience with Ellen was so fun. Just like the two of them up in the audience. And Nikki had this bright orange hair and they're totally surprising. These three young people in the audience who are trying to make their way through college and work at the same time and pay bills and had no idea. This was going to happen to them. It's just really cool. First of all, it's cool that Nikki does that. That's not like a huge story that Nikki goes on Twitter and helps people who are in need. You don't. When you think of Nikki, it's not. That's not the first thing you think of when you think of Nicki Menaj it's really cool that she does that and doing it on our show just like amped it up and you could tell you both. She's the perfect combination of sex and philanthropy. While we were all here this summer working hard to put together the show, Ellen decided to go to Rwanda to see mountain gorillas. I did take one vacation. It was a lifelong dream of mine, and I went to Rwanda to see the mountain gorillas if you get a chance to go to Rwanda, I urge you the country is amazing. The people are amazing. And everyone said, when you see the girl is you're going to see, they're going to be very, very close and they were right. All these girls have been around humans for their entire lives, and it's like they knew we were coming. They were just waiting for us, and then they ask for tickets to twelve days. I'm just going to say, I love Ellen dearly. I have zero interest in getting that close to any type of primate and I would be I would be scared and I just don't think in the video they literally move out of the way it's crazy. Yeah, it made me how close you got to those, but apparently they're very genteel. Ellen show stand up special in Seattle, the three of you guys are able to go up there and actually see, it was unbelievable. It was so fun. The energy in the room was incredible. Ellen was on fire. Her comedy was fantastic. It's going to be a really great. We got Joe early on your do tests. That's a little venue here called Largo. We still like ten minutes, so much fun to evolve from ten minutes to or hour and a half with hilarious QNA. And here's more about that. I mentioned that I worked a lot over the summer. What I did was I have I went back to stand up. I didn't do up for fifteen years. And I decided. I just all of a sudden it was like, I missed end up. I want to do it. So I made a deal with Netflix and I was working on stand up all summer. I taped it in Seattle. I loved it so much. The audiences were great. Seattle was great. Thank you. Everybody in San Francisco and San Diego, the specialists called relatable, and it premiers on Netflix December eighteenth. And so. Mark Wahlberg talked to us about how he has a Chevy dealership in Columbus, Ohio. And we got very excited about the notion of that, and we like Mark Wahlberg. We like to help him out and sew Ellen and Mark Wahlberg did a commercial for his dealership which was really fun for everyone involved saying, you fought a car dealership in Ohio, Columbus, Ohio, Columbus, Ohio. What made you want to to number one by a car dealership and then why there? Well, we have a restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio. We're opening Columbus, Ohio. I love working. I have a lot of business in the Michigan area, do Ohio area, and it was just a great opportunity that we discovered my partner j Feldman is from Michigan. He's one of the biggest car dealers around there. I was a car salesman when I was younger, I was a mechanic and training. Okay. So in how long has it been open? We've been. And for a couple of months now doing it's doing great. We just got. I think we're in like one ninety seven on a top two hundred and fifty auto dealerships right country. Let's let's make it like number one. Let's do. That's the goal I had liked the way. Why do you my partner. Next time you invest in something, let's do it together. All right, but here's what I wanna do to help you out. We're going to do a car commercial that we we wrote and you'll just say the lines that you see on the camera and just don't ask any questions, and then we'll do a car commercial, and then you buy the airtime and stuff. We're not going to do that and then it's we, we help raise awareness offers. All right. Let's go. Let's all right. Hughes, how a good sport Mark Wahlberg was we told him he just had to read what was on the prompter the teleprompter. He hadn't really seen the script ahead of time and he was full on in because I think he really likes and an enjoys his time with Ellen. Warburg and we're here to tell you to come on down to Mark Wahlberg Chevrolets central high largest inventory of new Chevy's down. That's right. I got a ton of cars for you to test drive everything from film rod. Marisa Silverado Simonis due to the high demand, we are currently sold out of Ambani's. Well, I'll tell you what he don't sell. It is two thousand eighteen dump truck. This is not a joke actually sells a dunk for short doing. Imagine all the things that you can do with that beauty on you can don't gravel dirt or a mixture of gravel and dirt.

Mark in spirit us. All right. Tell where you're located. Three nine zero zero, broad street in Columbus, Ohio. Just just a half mile east of Wesland flea market a little closer than that, but come on down. We'll suit you maybe one of these hats. Ellen starts with hall. Do they say that they're. Ohio. But first words. That was a car dealership thing she was trying to do or thing? No, I think it was a car dealership. I think it was like looking at like an ad from the nineteen fifties of let me take a car dealership and tell you what happened. What happened was the wardrobe department, put Ellen in a cowboy. Tell them was in a cowboy hat. The hall just came running out of her. Now Andy, did you did you enjoy when Mark Wahlberg told his story about how he likes to go into Crimea chamber once a day? I'm going to be honest with you when he was telling the story, I did find it fascinating and interesting that someone would take their body temperature that low. Okay. So with Mark while norm and who works out a lot, and it's, it's evidence you just look at you and you can see that, but I, I know you do something that's a, is it a cry? Oh, what is it called? Cryan chamber to try to know first of all you didn't have once you got in freezing cold water when you were on vacation, right? So this, how freezing is that water? It's like fifty. Something degree you'll watch if I go a little, I see it starts getting really uncomfortable right around that level. It's like fifty five degrees, but the crime chambers like one hundred fifty below zero. You go in for three minutes, but you can move around. You can listen to a song. It's an a really kind of helps with your recovery takes lactic acid, say the temperature. Again. It's one hundred fifty below in the crowd chamber. That's like fifty. You cannot be one hundred fifty below temperature. It's that's what they're selling me. You can only go in for three minutes. You go in, you know, you have a mask on gloves socks a hat. But yeah, you went for three minutes. That's all you have no underwear, no other things you just have serve on the world. Carpentry, but that's a real thing. All right. And so you go in, how do you not get frostbite? We went in the water. There's one where there's one in in Columbus, Ohio, which we can get to later. We actually have to cover your nipples as well because they will start to really freeze and whatever else could happen. But it actually about your stuff. It's okay. It's comes back to normal, but I'm telling you it is great for recovery and it just takes all the inflammation onto your body helps you sleep good. It's, you should try. I'm going to tell you that one of my favorite moments of the week has to be Andy being surprised by Ellen and being forced against his will into a cry chamber for three minutes. So Mark Wahlberg tells that story that night Kevin and Ellen have a conversation and Kevin Ellen decide that the next day they're going to surprise Andy and put them in a in a crowd chamber, Kevin. You want to tell us a little bit about how that's why it's still so fun. Sixteen years in like Ellen loves torturing Andy, and we heard that your body goes to minus one fifty. She's like, can we get one here? So we drove one from San Diego all behind Andy's back. Normally we're all involved with all the decision making. This all happened behind his back. We wrote a whole fake monologue that she. She rehearse. So he had no clue. We got a camera on them. We find we than the show starts. She comes out, big smile, starts a Ma. The Andes never heard. You see him get instantly worried when we showed the clip of Mark Wahlberg talking about the crowd chamber and the next thing you know, he's talking about his p p on TV, and since you can't see it on the podcast, you should probably know he was naked. Are the same way about you. Thanks so much of the things I love about this job is that I get to learn new things every single day. For instance, Mark Wahlberg was here yesterday. He is a great actor. He's got an amazing body in my right ladies. He told me about one of the secrets how he keeps fit. It's something called cryotherapy. It's crazy what celebrities do to stay in shape. But I was curious. So I bought one. I wanted to know what cryotherapy feels like, and there's only one way to find out. So Andy come here. I just need to find something I all right. I really do because you're assistant was going to sign, but that's not fair. Okay. Just you're not pregnant, right. Okay. You don't have any of these things severe Nimia real machine. It is. All right. It's going to be so good for you. You're gonna. Thank me. All right, one hundred eighty five. Well, that's too cold. Just sign there. All right. You're going to go behind there and change because you have to cover your stuff. All right. Yep. Minus one hundred and sixty three. I can't wait to hear how this is. I was. So I was so curious and that was like this is going to be so fun. Once I got in there, I was like, oh, this isn't so bad, but then I realized that timer hadn't started yet. And then once the guy flicked whatever switch he did, I felt the cold and suddenly my body is getting colder and colder. And I'm also aware that there's an audience watching. And so it's just a lot of panic and fear. It's funny because people always say to me, come on, you had to know that was coming and it is unbelievable. Considering the amount of time we all spend together and the amount of work we put into each show that I am completely left in the dark and have no idea that this stuff is coming. And I find it very upsetting that the four of us are supposedly in trust tree. And do you know Mary does care about you? We've got a three page release that you're supposed to sign for your health and heart or whatever. And she made sure that we had you signed that on air. I was a little worried about you. I know, I love. I love you and I was a little worried about you. Well, you are frail and I did not want it to all go badly and people are like, did you feel good? Like did it help you with your? I don't work out, so there's no recovery that I need. Here's the thing. Twitch. Talked about how he does it all the time. Yeah, but he does it after a workout like he works out. And then when he's sore and has tired, muscles, he does it. And then. He has a recovery is so much easier and what I realized what we needed to do, what we should have done is we should have gotten used sore. I we should have made workout. Oh, made you work out gotten you tired and then see how the recovery do you know that we were originally trying to get Mark Wahlberg wake you up at four o'clock in more into go work out with them. Yeah, that was a pitch where Mark Wahlberg was gonna come to your door and wake you up at three forty, five AM and take you to a four AM workout. Yeah. I can't remember why we didn't do it. It was such. I think. I think he's schedule. Yeah, that was a good idea. We had. Have you had any bad ideas make all the way to the show or in your own personal lives? Have you done something? Not so smart. That's a good question that the only thing I've ever done wasn't smart at this show was accidentally flipped a switch in that the latest for two hours. Right? The only thing I've done some dumb. I. Oh, you flipped a switch and the entire studio went dark, went silent and who was rehearsing at least you key cheese in addressing room ready to perform. And we had to tell Shaquille is to just take a minute while Derek westervelt our producer went onto the roof of the building to try to figure out what had happened. She had already set up all her audio equipment. It was all ready to go. And what kind of what kind of place puts one switch and a control room that controls everything to. Like a TV studio where, yeah, there was also a plexiglass box covering the button is the part that we're leaving the story so much. It was an accident. He opened plexiglass box, which clearly means don't touch this button and then hit it. 'cause you figure maybe it's a button that affects a lot of things so they have it protected. So yeah, that was one of my not smart things that I've done. One of two things happened either. Andy doesn't know that him hitting that button caused this issue or Andy didn't want to tell us right away that hitting that button was the thing that powered everything down. So we had to trace back to the fact that there was this button in the room and I believe it was Ellen believe it was Ellen who is like, wait a minute, Andy. Did you hit that button? Andy. Sheepishly said that he might I might have been an accident. The cover up is usually the thing that is your downfall, but that really wasn't smart, but not smart. Do you know what is smart? Andy? What's smart going to ZipRecruiter dot com slash Ellen to hire the right person, the job posting website, you guessed it because ZipRecruiter doesn't depend on candidates finding you.

She's here on the show, but she's just her Ellen have such a great relationship on the show and off the show. And I think they're just so funny together. So Anna Kendrick's new movie is called a simple favor, and she does something that I thought was hilarious. So Ellen comes up with a great idea and by Ellen coming up with the great idea, it was. Getting forgetting an time by. Here's nobody in this room. She wanted Anna to recreate a moment from the movie here, but I, she told Ellen about the unusual birthday party. She threw for herself. I'm so happy to see you again first of all, happy belated birthday. Thanks. When was it a couple of weeks ago? Yeah, I didn't. I didn't. I didn't do anything. You did nothing? No, I did. Nothing specifically didn't. I'm one of those people that, hey, it's not birthdays I'll go to your birthday, but I hate my birthday. I hate it tension. No, I don't know why, but I. So I actually like, you know, who's really great about birthdays is all the girls from pitch perfect, and they are. They always try and get me to do something with them. And I, I actually told them I was like, I'm in Vancouver visiting a friend and now they know that I wasn't. But yeah, they always wanna plan stuff and I just like I sat at home and I organize my sock drawer and I didn't do anything that was amazing. Really? I mean, did people give you gifts? So even though there was not an event? No, I'm good, really good. I'm chilling. All right. Yeah, that's weird. It seems like you'd want, you know, ordered a cake for myself. I'm not a my. I see. All right. So at least you had a k. Yeah, I'm not a sociopath. Yeah. Yeah. So what I thought you were hanging out with the whole cast? No, the I saw picture it that was Chrissy fits birthday. This is a different girl from the cast pitch, and we are very big on birthdays and the cast. So we, we all went to the magic castle and magic hassles like this secret club for magicians, and you can go. And it sounds really dorky because it is, but also it's amazing. Like it's genuinely like so amazing and they did all these like magic tricks and it was so much fun. They actually this one guy toward the end who did this trick where I don't know how he did this. There was he. He was like asking me to just punch random numbers into my phone, and you know, we're just telling each other random numbers to punch into my phone and add them up, and we look at the number and he's like, what do you think that is? And we're like, I don't know, Bank account number. That'd be cool. And someone was like, it looks like a phone number. My friend Kelly was like, oh, I'm in. To call it and it was the magician, spohn number I don't. I don't know how he did that, which was like, so cool. And it was the greatest night. And then the next day that magician because he had my friend Kelly's phone number now because she called texted her and was like, hey, just wondering if you would want to go out sometime. So my question is, did he was he just going to like hit on the one of the girls that called him or like, was this like a really good trick? Like did he no. Like did he know how to get her to call? And they're going to end up like married with kids and it's like the greatest magic trick of all either way. It's great. Does she like him and she's going to go out with how she's good. But now he has phone. Yeah, you never know. All right. So wait. So like literally you'll just made up numbers and that was the I know it's amazing. I mean, I'm probably banned for life for telling that story now, but it was a great now. It's not, but you didn't give anything away. That's the whole thing. You can't give tricks away. Yeah, that's the thing. But you didn't give that? I don't understand. I love magicians. I fascinated by them, yes. All right. Let's talk about the movie. 'cause I, I loved the movie. I love it. It's it's very hard to explain what it is because it's a mystery, but it's done with with such a twist of on explain it. It's it's hard to explain. It's yeah, it's like I play a mom who's like a mommy blogger and she needs this woman through her son, and you know, she gets close to her and then that woman disappears and it's just a really fun movie because there's this mystery that's very real and the stakes are very high. But it's also like funny. Yeah, you're and like it's kind of. Like sexy and you laugh a lot, but it's not a comedy show. So I thought if you want to ask me a favor and then I could ask you a favor, and so do you have a favorite for me? I, yeah, I, yeah, I have a favor. No k. I want I want to take over your Twitter take it over. Yeah, like I, I want to completely well not forever, but like I wanted to, I wanna make you post stuff like whatever I want. All right. What do you want? It will let me say, what do you want me to push? I mean, only if you only if you agree and endorse the center. Yes, that's why I want to know what it is. Right. A simple favor is so great. It'll change your life. A simple favor is so amazing. It'll get you laid. That kind of movie. Anna, Kendrick is my favorite person. Late is LA ID not l. a. y. u. d.. All right, and and a favorite actress of all time? Greats. Okay. Does that what you said? I said, my favorite person, but if you want to limit it to actors on fine.

So Michael Strahan and Sarah Haynes are starting a brand new show called the called g m a day. So our producer, let's coat had the idea that since Ellen can't get to New York to appear on their show, that we would build a replica of their set and by replica, I mean, cheap imitation, and they could interview Ellen on their show right here on our set. Hey, we're back with Michael three hand and Sarah Haynes the host DMA day and. And we're, we're ready for you.

Thank you. We're so happy for you to join us. Thank you for taking the time. I will. I just in New York for a short amount of time. So I thought I want to see the two of you. We used to. We could ask anything, let's get personal, can I it before you say anything? I was so nervous coming out here to meet you. I was crying. I was I was back stage in your state person was I don't do this because I was so. So excited anyway. Paying with people make all the time all the time. Good. So you imports, you just celebrated ten years together? Ten year wedding. She was the one like any date stories or funny things that happened. I knew she was the one when I first met her, and that was three years before we got together, but yet, no, we kind of like we didn't have any crazy dates always only the crazy date story I have is like early on. She thought it would be funny because the first night we met there was a limousine. That's how long ago was that we met fourteen years ago and people were taking limos to events instead of SUV's. Yeah. And so she got a limo for a date for us with filled with balloons because I hate balloons and smoke. The limo couldn't get out of our drive. It was doing like a, it's kept having turn about nine times to get out. And then she took me too long French dinner. That was a meal, every twenty minutes slow. They are and I was impatient and so I left before the cake even came with the one after all the all that, yes, I knew that before that me out balloons. Yes, yes. But I'm just you. You took your some of you to take a break this summer. You actually went back on the road to net flicks pets? I did. I didn't that place. Listen, I. How is it though? Because you're back on the road house, they'd be back in front of a live audience again. Player live? No. No, yeah. No, I know comedy on the state. It's it's definitely a different kind of thing when I'm doing stand up, then I'm doing this show. I mean, I hadn't done stand up in fifteen years and I was really excited to do it and I had a lot of fun. Do you get nervous though? Because stand up is a hetero to me. It's like a unique beast. It's what we have nightmares about standing in front of people and trying to me. Yeah. Do you get nervous when you up there? I don't. I love doing it. It's something. I mean, I did it for like twenty years when I first started. So it's sort of in me, you know? So no. Do you get nervous? Why don't try to do that ever craft that I would. Hoagie hitting when they get nervous. I do hug people awkwardly. I just start hugging anyone. We walk into here. She's stranger this week. Do you get nervous about things? I don't get nervous anymore. I used to. Yeah, yeah. Used to. I don't know what I'd do when I'm nervous. Maybe I've never is. Now I'm talking real fast, but sometimes I get nervous, but I got a question for you, and this is a great question from your show. What do you do? How do you stop a gift who's talking too much. I zone out. I just kind of look past them. And then I know I, if they're talking too much, I just let them go. And then we have to, unfortunately edit them later because I don't want to interrupt them, but we only have certain amount of time in a segment and there are certain people, you know, Kanye west who talks a lot. You know, there are people that like to talk and they don't pay attention politicians as they have no idea about time. They just will talk. You get the message, it up some bars and emergency tone. Sorry, we lost our know. Thank you. Gotta go big sometimes. I'm okay. So I want to talk about if you went, I wanna see you in the wild, not in your studio where we were invited. So you do? Yeah. In the wild. Well, that's we didn't invite you there. So it's like seeing a celebrity out and about Hong, you're in the grocery store. Oh, that's the wild. Why? Sorry. Yeah, we're not in the jungle. Okay. I thought you would have put me on an island or something. I'd like to see how you Ellen. Naked for eight, right? No, no. When you went to the grocery store last time, do you go to the grocery store? No. Okay. We'll have time you've been to grocery store. I went to a grocery store about two years ago. What'd you by making good? I was going to buy tequila actually. I was for like a last minute party we were having and I went to buy tequila and and it was a little bit of a fiasco, you know, came up to you. You know what they do feel bad, like buyer tequila with a bunch of strangers. Well, she can. What they do is they pretend like I'm. They're, they're near me, but they just have their phone out and then I'm behind them like, I don't know that that's what they're doing or they pretend like they're reading text, but it's this high and. But there was a lot of phones out and stuff like that. It was actually Oprah who did it, but. She loves when she sees me out. We have. We have one final question for you, and I don't know if you're gonna answer this, how much money do you have a lot. Okay. That's all I'd be most as much as you Michael almost as me you keep on working. And the way Sarah Haynes, lovely, both of them. Yeah, Sarah Hanes is so like regular normal.

You have a game of games created by Kevin that you guys are all executive producers on we all work on that takes a lot of time. And now, you're doing this podcast. Obviously, there's gotta be something in it for you to give up this kind of time. It's a complicated equation. It's a fair question is it is a very fair so who wants dancer, well, the good news is we're all getting paid the same. That's true. No, we're like the friends we're like the friends cast. We get paid. We when we went into this thing, we said in this negotiation. Exactly, we are negotiating as a group, and I'm keeping my clothes and.

Let's say for then painful because you're yeah. Yeah. It does hurt yet. So I got about thirty of my friends together. And we went and played laser tag. I learned a lot about my friends. You know, I learned who I want in a time of war high side. Sounds fun. But yeah, it was a lot of when I heard you did something interesting last year. What did you do? I went on a ten day meditation retreat, a what wear. Yeah, it was outside of Dallas. It's a passionate retreat. I don't know where it was. It was like farmland you go there. And you know, you sign away your electronics, and and you promise to stay the ten days. And and it was the hardest thing I have done really. So from us, but you do you speak or you don't know is complete silence for ten days. You're allowed to ask questions at specific times of day. But it's you're not allowed to make eye contact with the other people on the retreat because the idea is for you to have a solitary experience and really just face your own demon. So all that silence note. No electronics, no music. No TV nothing. Just you and your thoughts. And boy did learn a lot about my mom. Yeah. That's amazing. Yes. Silence. Is a really pow. Powerful thing. I believe in that. So you how many people were there? I want to say we must have been about seventy. I mean, you can't really count 'cause you can't look at you can't get down three people over there. Seventy people writing. Okay. Yeah. That's really cool. And at the end did you like did you get to look at people? And then kinda learn about them or well, it was funny right before we started before us the silence is official. Some woman came up to me. And she was like are you the beat the long run? All this way to get away from right? And then afterwards, she came up to me and said, you know, I'm so sorry. I realized after this ten days that that was the one thing you were probably escaping from. And I appreciate it yet. He was probably the whole ten days going got him an idiot. Why did I do that the whole time? This choir self, oh today me. But I'm going to go up towards the end, and I'm gonna all she had going. All right. So let's talk about us. It looks so good. So tell me and everybody that hasn't seen it when it's about well, it's a nightmare from Jordan peels mind, and it is about Adelaide Wilson a woman who is riddled with this trauma from childhood that she cannot explain and she's on vacation with her family and their summer home in Santa Cruz, and she's convinced something bad is going to happen. And she's proven, right? When these four shadowy figures show up at the top of their driveway and their worst nightmare and sues and you play you play two different characters. Yeah. Very very different characters that must've been fun. It was incredible. I mean, it was hard work. Yes. Who it was hard work? And you know, 'cause they're very different. They are diametrically opposed to each other. But they are also connected. So I had to go to some dark places within myself to to find the d'appel ganger read of do a crazy voice. That was a lot of fun to create. Nate and. Yeah, I I enjoy the experience I spent a lot of time between take sleeping just trying to catch up with myself. Yeah. Because when you have a day off, the other character doesn't exactly. Yeah. Yeah. And you never meet your scene partner. Yeah. Which is a challenge from its own. Yeah. That's really difficult. So you're talking to someone sort of? Yes. Someone who's just a Nightline and at times just a Green Cross on hall. That's really hard. Yeah. Also, the PD you should you watch the watch it on your DVR if you can lupita is the door -able her entrances adorable. She's very stylish. Oh, it was awesome. Ossining outfit is absolutely stunning.

But we've all had lows and highs in our life, no in in all seriousness. He's he's battled some demons and because he's a celebrity. It's very public and everything is sort of known about him. And and and one of the things that at talked about on the Lao last podcast is that you know, we are in a society where we like to pile on. And when someone's having a tough time, there's there's there's an urge for people to sometimes pylon. And so he. He's gone through that I've having gone through a divorce and some rehabs, and he keeps you know. He keeps bouncing back and surviving. So we had him on the show and one of the things when people a few months ago, he was on a private beach. Didn't know there were paparazzi and a photo was taken of his tattoo his back tattoo, and it got an incredible amount of press, hence, judgment, some people thought it was ridiculous. Some people thought it was over the top everyone had something to say. And so L and asked him about it on the show this week. I love that. He was willing to talk about it. And he was willing to talk about it. And he knowledged that he got hammered for it. And but it means something to him, which is why people get tattoos. And and you know, is it one of the biggest tattoos I've ever seen. Absolutely. Is it is it is it is it something that that? I look at completely differently now that he's explained it. It has a lot of personal meaning to him, of course. And and you know, he talked about it on the show, and he sort of talked about his struggles. And and and he's he's a super talented guy. He is a director and actor, and he was here to talk about his new Netflix movie triple frontier, which looks really cool, and is on my watch list on Netflix. And you keep a watch list on Netflix. Yes. How you do it? Yeah. That's how I do it. Anyway. So here's him first of all talking about the tattoo. That was a photo of the of your back tattoo that got a lot of attention. Not not so much positive people. It's a it's a it's a commitment. It's what is it's like a free. Knicks Phoenix, which I think from your ass. Now, we didn't. But it's. Right. Very quick. Yeah. Where was I? Anyway. Yes. Phoenix rising for my ass. I was about to say it represents something really important to me. Just we'll skip that you can say that it does represent. It is meaningful to me. I like it. It's not something that I sort of kept private. It wasn't like I was sort of doing photo shoots. Whatever we were two hours north of the city and some island Hawaii, and we didn't know the paparazzi was there. So they got a picture my tattoo, and yeah the sentiment ran against in which I love my tattoo. Yeah. It's your MAC. Okay. Show of hands in this room who has a tattoo in this room. Oh, what I'm just one of us. One of us has an you guys. Can you guys can you know, write in and guess which one of us might have a tattoo. He also agreed to be part of yet. Another time. I get humiliated on the show where we had a cameo. I've been doing these cameos raise money for Ellen's gorilla fund, and we've been charging forty dollars fifty to fifty five hundred no more than five hundred and so which slowly making money, and then the idea was let's actually put a celebrity in one of these. So we got so Ben Affleck agreed to do a cameo with me, and what we did was in typical Kevin fashion. We had no idea what we were gonna do until the show because he needs it to be a surprise for maximum humiliation for me and. And we had to do a wrap that we were seeing for the first time for someone who had requested a cameo to congratulate them for a birthday relation. You guys. Did a great job. I will your sweet to say that Mary take take a listen, certainly above average. All right. So here's a request. This is from a Winona wish me, I guess for my eighteenth birthday and for finishing.

How did you shoot the movie already know got pushed pushed pushed so you. Okay. My my thing is that there's a living like this my hair. Exactly. I don't know. Come here. Let me is here. Because we we think of long we think pretty it's getting kind of just a little long, right? It's like as long as your wife's hair same as my hair. It's almost the same. There's only room for one of these in our house. Yeah. So so what we did we we're going to cut your hair your hair because I shaved Julius elements beard. I don't know if you saw that. And I did a great job, and he he loved it. And there there's not much of a difference between shaving and cutting disagree strongly. Just head over here. Let's head over here. Let's go. Okay.

Might need that hat in man. Looking back. So we have played that clip on the podcast. Maybe not maybe be boring for you. This is my them cut hair. But not got to see it. You got to look at it. Might have been a particularly visual audio clip. Whoops. You should probably watch it on your phone while you're driving. What? Oh. Oh, that's stained again learning on the job here at the podcast. All right, Kev. Let's talk about the Ellen me on the me on Ellen me. Let me I love these. They will like swept Twitter for a little while people were post, they make fun of the show a little bit saying that whatever the person says they want Ellen can instantly grant them like she's Santa Claus are a genie. And so there's all these ridiculous ones. And they got more and more weird. So of course, we showed them to Alan. And she was like, oh, yeah. I saw these are everywhere. And she's like we gotta talk about these on the show. So we found a few that you all posted. And they're crazy. And here's Ellen's take on these alanon Miana, Ellen memes. There's a mean going around on that. I'd like to talk about do. You know what I mean is? Tiny mine. And no mean is a picture or with words, or or just words that people post online, and I don't know how they start. But they're catching these spread all over like Mary's rash. And. So last week. How is the rash? Okay. Okay. Less popular theme. Featuring me. This is the headline that I saw me on Ellen is the twisted new Meam taking over Twitter. Basically, the idea of a mean is that I surprised people on my show all the time with with gifts. And so people imagine what it would be like if I surprise them. And here's here's here's the first one. So I heard you love the ocean. Yeah. And then the studios starts fighting. Oh my God. They get weirder. From their. Here's another one. So I heard you love animals. Yeah. Take software trench coat revealing herself to be several dogs stepped into a suit. Oh my God Ellen. You didn't bark bark bark bark bark? I would watch that show. That would be amazing just reveal that. I'm a dog. Then the rest of them are weird but not regular weird specifically weird like this one. So I heard you wanna John presents to step on you. Yeah. John Kuczynski walks out in enormous foods, Ellen you didn't. Now. Whoever wrote that don't involve me with your sit. You on presents fetish? I'm glad people are having fun with this. But I think that they're exaggerating when I do on the show the show is not just about surprising people. I I also do other things I'm the you. I'm gonna prove come here. You're you're defeating the whole you're acting surprise. And I said, I don't prize people. All right. You can. All right. What is your name names? Just I'm right here. Okay. All right. Meghan, where do you live when you do Utah? I must say, oh, mom. Okay. Right. I don't all right. Yeah. And see that that how their four three in ten months. Oh, wow. Wow. You're busy over there. I guess you don't get out. My. So. Okay. So you liked Zac Ephron? Yeah. I heard that he's not here today. He's in April, and you're not here in April. So you're saying you're not. All right. So there's that see I'm not surprising. Then I heard that you that you like Cancun you want. Yeah. Right. You should go. Because for sure because you know, it's pretty and I heard that JetBlue has the deal. Okay. Okay. So see I didn't. That's nice meeting. You. Darn it. I can't not do it. All right. So you're going to come back in April when back off from his here. And then I'm gonna give you tickets on JetBlue to go to Cancun. I guess I'm that predictable. That's we actually have some other podcast listener questions. We do. Kevin L. We have a question from Blair Powell. Besides game of games have we or Ellen ever considered? Another name for the game show that's been much in because it's a good question at the very beginning for a split second. We're calling it the million dollar game show. Right. The slided that name go away we still we don't want to give us a paid zero dollars. What was there? Another name at the beginning. I don't think so I think that's game show ever some now I feel like is actually Mike are now is the one is like no it should just be called game games. And was stuck with Mike Darnell is for you. He was sort of the brains behind the original American idol at FOX. And now he works at Warner Brothers, and he's kind of considered a reality show guru. And so he was the one we pitched the game too. And and then the rest is history. We took a ten b c and he's fearless leader. Now, he's wonder how we have a big fat successful game. Show home Anita Whitten asks just wondering why is the sky box empty so often? That's a good question. The sky box was was built as sort of a VIP luxury area. Correct. Then we decided we need we built it and realize that we forgot to pay for it. Right. And so then we said, well, we'd better get some sponsors, exactly guy. Coast been there bubbly been there. And the idea was it was another avenue to have comedy on the guy. Geico was the first one we wrote it as a joke. Right. Just because we did have to pay for it. And we wrote it in as a joke that will let's put someone's name up there who you always see like on the back of baseball field or arenas. And so we were like us guy, go and sure enough they called loved it. And they may be. We gave them like we put a clock on. It we go. We're gonna leave this up. Gyco for a week. If you wanted to. I love gyco. They they they're my one of my insurers really want one of you have. So many things below. Left like. And the thing is we we we use it in twelve days. We we use it for special occasions. Keep. Special. The I would have liked to take some refer average everyday disarm up there that they get to watch about that. Let's talk about it would it would be fun to fun to fill. It. More often. We'd have to walk up the liquor medicine hall may get mccown hall. Mason hall my boyfriend, and I watch a lot of Ellen's game of games. And we're wondering for quite some time. What in the world is at the bottom of the no or go dry. That's my favorite question. I can tell you get it a lot. It's my favorite question that we will never answer. We we can't we answer a lot of questions. We're willing to answer. A lot of things what we will not answer is the mystery of Noriko, we we we really can't. Because there are obviously a lot of people who love reptiles, and snakes and think it would be a wrong thing that people would be drafted destructs among them. So we don't talk about it not at liberty to say, we can't you know on the advice of counsel, I declined that question on the grounds. That might incriminate me put the answer snakes. Miranda marlowe. I just got my first beat kind box. And absolutely love all of the items in it, especially this awesome. I love that does Ellen really pick out all the items herself. Like Oprah's favorite things that is correct. She absolutely does it. Let's back up a second. Explain to our listeners at who may not know what is the Allenby kinda it's a subscription box. And and and if you don't know what a subscription boxes there sort of a rage right now where you you pay a fee for the subscription box and the value of the box. If the company delivering the box is doing it right is is worth way, more than what you're paying for it. So brands wanna be a part of Ellen's subscription box. And so they provide product for the box that is at a premium to what the to what the subscriber is paying to introduce the. Subscriber to a product now, for example, right in the most recent one that went out the the the authors of the book Rover, which is a book a pictorial book right dogs, a beautiful coffee table book did an exclusive cut down like seventy or seventy five page version of that book right for the subscription box. First of all, you can't even put a price tag on that. Because you can't go by that smaller book, you can only get it from our subscription box. It's really the premise is really cool. And there's always a philanthropic component like a charitable component. And there are two people in our office. One is a lotta call their own folks who runs our branded partnerships, and the other is Ross Williams who's been on our show for ten or eleven years now who helps us secure our twelve days giveaways and stuff like that. They both really wanted to do this box. We allow them to pitch us away. This could work we then met with Ellen to review the products and we've done two so far, and they're really they're really cool. I may sell out. By the way, I have to you have to when you hear when you hear that they're available in you see Ellen talking about them on the show you have to order quickly because they do sell out. I will say this that I have to kids as I've mentioned I make sure that I have two boxes come to my house of the behind boxes. And my kids are thrilled. Every time a box comes, and they can we opened it can we open it. Can we open it? And then they unblocks these two boxes, and they always enjoy the stuff. That's in them. Yeah. They always have a good time with him. They always have fun. Or if there's something that doesn't particularly appeal to them. They always come up with somebody to give one of the items to that doesn't speak to them. Yeah. Like my kids. Don't drink coffee. The last box had Roe Ondon coffee in. Yes. So we gave the coffee away, and those people were very happy. I know how native Americans in the Navajo tribe when they would do a rug with leave a mistake in it. So that you will spirits. Oh, get out. Oh, there's a small mistake barely noticeable in the box. If you can find it. We wanted to make sure the evil spirits could get out. Yep. See if you noticed the other. Yes. Pictures of it's fun. It's all right now onto Kate Shipman who says I just moved into my first condo. But I don't know enough money to afford cable. How do I stream Ellen? Congrats on okay to go over. Pardon even someone. I would suggest to you that if you can afford a condo you Ford cable. I mean. Come on. It seems like choice, and here's what I will say to you. You you you you can't watch entire episodes of Ellen online. But we do post a fair amount of it on Ellen tube and on YouTube and Facebook, you can watch some great some great content from the show. But if you wanna watch the whole show, you have to go to your TV set in your old fashioned TV, or you know, a lot of people find a way to get cable from like a neighbor for their neighbors. You know, if you had if you had direct TV, you could get or you could get direct TV now direct TV now is is not cable and not direct TV. It is direct TV on your phone. You could maybe do that. I'm sure there's probably a way that you can get it. But it involves watching the over the air shows how and also like maybe maybe this new condos near bar somewhere in bars often have TV. And if you just stumble into the bar at around three o'clock and ask I mean, how crowded it can the Barbie at three they gotta change the channel and watch with me you can. Go to Don Kuko's, you can see a picture of Kevin on the wall right here. Your picture on the wealth. Yeah. Finally, got Kevin's corner. It's happening. It's up. Have we talked about David Letterman yet on the podcast hairs on the twenty first. So yes, David Letterman makes his first ever appearance on the Ellen Degeneres show today. It was so much fun. It was really really fun. And so on our next podcast. We'll be talking all about the experience of having Dave on our show, one of my favorite Mary moments, since I started I could not be on that show is awesome. Oh, this love study.

Kanye west Jason sedate. Gus reveals his four year old son is a fashion icon, Ellen Pompeo shows us, she doesn't only like helping people on Grey's anatomy, but in real life too. And Ellen favourite and our favorite. Lisa Jarman makes a spectacular return to our show. I'm Ed glavin. I'm Kevin Leman. I'm Andy last ner. Oh, and I'm Mary Connolly, and I'm your host. Oh, went before you thought if I slow played you welcome to the podcast on the go jinx. Yep. Today. We'd like to talk about and we've had some great stuff on the show. Kris Jenner Christian. God tell you what. Yeah. The whole so Kris Jenner was on our show. Yeah. It was I believe to acts of television or maybe tutti knows to okay. And the first act I was we'll Ellen Chris our friends so dinner together, they spend time together. And they really like no each other, right? And I found the conversation about Kanye riveting, right? Fly. You know, Ellen has has had a relationship with Connie, and has, you know, had a friendship with Connie. And I remember ten years ago Kanye performed at our outdoor show in Burbank in the park, and he came into our came into Ellen's office while we were briefing with a Louis Vuitton backpack pulled out his backpack opened up his computer and said this isn't going to be out for a year. But let me play it for you. And he played a song by by himself and Chris Martin from Coldplay call I think called homecoming. And I was like oh my God. How can I hear the song? It didn't come out for another year. And he was just like young and blowing up and brilliant. Yeah. Fast forward ten years in a lot of water under the bridge and Konya is in a different place yet, an Ellen and Kris Jenner had a pretty amazing conversation about it. I thought. It is fantastic. Hawaii. I'm using. I am so good. Dr you, I am are you. I'm great. I'm great. I don't have a large family fantastic. I mean, it seems like is there ever a week when somebody says I is there ever a boring weak in your family? Is there a week that nothing is going on? No never never going on with someone all the time. It's I don't even sleep anymore. Like in the middle of the night Kim's out of the country right now. And I got a phone call it, you know, some godawful our and she's got a question. And I'm like, we're on LA time. So there's always something they know your they'd have. They just wake you definitely she's out of the country. Again. I thought she just got back. Yeah. We'll she's gone again. Oh, yeah. All right. Well, so let's let's just get this out of the way. Let's say, and I know you're in a tough position. Yeah. To talk about it. But it just seems like at some point we have to address what like what do you want to say? Well, here's the man you don't want to say anything. No, no. Congas, you know, an amazing son-in-law. He's an amazing dad, and and husband, and friend and brother-in-law. So we know, you know, my son in law, and my job is a mom is just to be there for my kids and be supportive and love them until you know, they they just you can't control what somebody else is doing. I can't always control what any of them do no time. But I think what I really want to do is be there to help him and be the best version of himself that he can be. And he knows that. We're there if he needs us, and you know, you're always concerned when there's controversy and drama and things are going on. And it's sometimes worrisome. You know, I mean when you have six kids and extended family and nine grandchildren. There's a lot going on. But I just want to be there and be supportive and be there if he needs, but it's. Leading you. I mean, that's that's my my question is because I think, you know, and I I mean, I've I've known for a long time. And and I know that side of him. But right now, we're seeing a different side of him. Yeah. And I feel like, you know, I mean when you see something like did you see the did you see when he went to the White House? And how did you feel when you saw that? I did after the fact we'll, you know. It was surprising that he was able to have that, you know. It was very spontaneous. You know, and the stuff that they were talking about when they got to the airplane. I was like oh my gosh. That's so that is so Conde. I mean, you know, he was sharing thoughts and things have himself. But I would rather he share some of that stuff privately. You know, obviously, it would be great. But you know, you I have to be able to show him that. I'm here. He needs me. We'll all here if he needs us, and we just want to help them be the best you can be. But he definitely has his own thoughts and opinions and he gets very excited about that. And you know, I don't know how else I mean, you know, him along Tom, I know him a long time, and he does have different sides to him. And. Yeah. Decide that nobody seeing before. Yeah. It's getting and because I'm talked to you about it. I've talked to him about it. And you know, and I want to be supportive too. Because I think what we don't want is people piling on because he's in a very. Honorable state right now, I think and I think he needs help. And I think you know, you can say we wanna be there for him. But I just feel like it's got to be really tough for you. And for Kim for everyone because it's your family, and it's like it's now you've got so much going on anyway. But then now now you have to worry about that a lot, you know. And it's like, you know, Kim always says, I really, you know, I can't control what somebody else does. And I feel the same way it's really hard. When you all know like, you have kids, and they might have a totally different opinion about something or a different view about something and his very strong. He's very pin naked, and he has a big voice. And he you know has a lot to say. Yeah. And he has access to the White House, and and and their kids don't so that they like their their kids make say out after curfew or whatever. But like he's at the White House, or he's, you know, TMZ, and it's like, I know that that's gotta be tough. And I don't wanna go on. But you know, I just I love him. I really I love him. And he you know, he's got he's my kid. Is crazy talented. And and he's he's a good guy. The amazing thing about Kris Jenner is what she could do is say, I have a friendship with Ellen. I don't wanna talk about cognac. The the thing at the White House was a big thing that blew up in SNL story was a big thing that blew up lot of backlash on. And she doesn't do that doesn't take the easy way to say. Let's not talk about we can talk about anything else except and she doesn't do it. She she feels the questions and she answered them as honestly as she can. And I she's and she's answering them as a mother-in-law yet. That's a that's a tough spot to be in my grandkids. And she she answers it with compassion yet. I had renewed respect for Kris Jenner after that conversation. How funny is Jason today. A lot of our guests. But he is hilarious. Well, what he does is. He works really hard on his appearance, which shows up and wants to entertainer an appearance, and and he does he was so funny. He grew out his hair for a role that hasn't quite happened yet, and he had a whole bit where he compared his hair to two famous hairstyles would set up his own hair. Live on the show, and it was hilarious. And even know the hair sometimes looks nothing like the person he says, it looks like he's still just owns it. Yeah. He was so funny on the show this time true story that night. I went home and watched a bunch of his SNL stuff again. And I realized wow, he really is. He's a funny guy. He should be doing a talk show. As it been that long than you had time to grow your hair out that much. Yeah, I eat all the crust of my bread. I talk about main and tail he's a lot of Maine entail. Wow. I've never had my hair this long in my life. When's the last time you were here that your hair was really short? Your was pretty sure. Yeah. And then I've been wearing a hat like the last five months because I wasn't quite sure about myself whole reason, I grew it out was for a movie that was supposed to happen in April. And then it didn't and got moved to may moved to October. And now it's going to happen in January twenty nine teams. So I've just been just letting it go to see what the heck happened. How long was it supposed to be when you were going to do it initially now January it's going to be down to your? It's going to be who knows what I'll I don't know what it's going to the it was more of like grow it out to then take it away because I didn't want to wear wigs. Is it a period piece his seventies or eighties? I mean, what is the why do you have to have long hair? Can I you can't talk about it for? There's no real specific reason. I was just I literally I was like I was like I'll just let it grow. Because I have nothing else to do. Do you like it? I never looked at it. I've never really see. It's more important than Bolivia likes it. And she she she she digs it, she she she likes. She likes. When I do the the this thing. Bunch put it she'll she likes putting it every now, and then she'll just walk across the room and take the thing off her hair, and is come up and get very close to me and intimately and put a man bun on there. And then just walk away. Just go. You know, that makes me feel very nice. But yeah, no the rest of the time is me like messing with it. And putting it here. Are you gonna you gonna brush your hair during the this is how you do? It is how you keep it. So nice, right. No, no, I've been doing hair impressions. So like, so like, it's fun. So if I'm like, this do this kind of action than it's kind of like a a prince album cover. That is like a prince album cover. Barely. Prince impression. And then what else we got? We got. Oh, well this. I mean, this is classic and this friend of yours friend of mine. This is a good one that I've been doing this a little bit, you know, a little bit more. It's a little flatter. Body less body. But but but I would even argue more I- conic. This is this is the Rachel. I don't think it is Ross Wilbur Ross. That's all right. Then we got more than here. This is this is I mean, this is good for anybody has kids or was a kid. But this is like kind of a let's see here we go. If you go right down the center, then you get into like a from Shrek, you know, Lord, Lord Farquaad. Yeah. That actually is the close. And then. Daily shows topical. You do a lot of pop stuff on here. But this is a little bit more sparing with me here. Well, yeah, you got. I mean, it's it's for it's for the anything for you. Then he'd come back here that you do this. And then I am Bradley Cooper from. Yeah. Look at one more time. Rewrite. What he says? You look maybe that was it. That's the way that's different from what are your kids for Halloween. Is this like a big I would assume that Halloween is like the most fun when you have kids because they want to dress up and. I mean, we're we're still I mean, it changes every hour on the hour daisies too. So she just repeats anything that ODA says, but then Otis is in a real style. Phase right now he loves dressing himself. Yeah. Well there there there. There's otas me notice doing a staring contest, and then daisies camera shy. She turned away. No. But we he he's wanted to be a LEGO ninja ninja ninja wanted to be a skeleton. He just dances around Winston Churchill. No, he didn't say. But then he literally every single day though. A big a big thing in the morning is about him asking for privacy going into his room four and a half closed the door and then comes out and then just presents himself like enclose. And then we'll point at how his socks match like the writing on his shirt, and he'll just do it like. Only. Oh, yeah. Matches. And then the then he's like. Yeah. Okay. So who knows what he's going to come up? It's pretty cute, Andy. Yep. Use a busy family. Very busy family. How do you do dinner? Well, it's hard with our busy schedules to get home and put a fresh nutritious meal on the table. Take out is always a healthy option and traditional meal kit service requires way, too much preparation, and that's when Kevin told me about his solution. Yeah. You gotta use Gaba land.

My sister-in-law Robin loves the show watches it all the time craze anatomy, thinks Grey's anatomy, just is is a fantastic show. And Ellen Pompeo first of all talked about how meaningful being on Grey's anatomy was to her. Yeah. Love that. So take a listen. So you went to Europe with your kids. Yeah. Yeah. Two four nine. Okay. And so that's a long flight to go to Europe. How how is that? With those kids on the flight. Oh, it was folded adventure. Yeah. I challenge did they like to fly. Well, you know, the older I don't know how mothers did it before I pads because with the nine year old and a four year old you can stick an ipad in front of them. And especially when I have this trick, right? Don't let them use the ipad for like weeks before. And then when I get on the plane, I'm like. And they just completely freak out. And they're just quiet for the whole entire time. It's the two year old ally that is just learning to walk in super excited about meeting every single person on the plane. Oh, wow. And were they excited to meet him? No. Some some are and some aren't yes. Italy. That's -able. That's a door will. All right. So so he's two yen. Then you said four and nine. Yes is four right. I don't know if we have a picture of her there Sienna. Yeah. She's who's your and you had to say child if you had to say your favorite, which one would it be too generous? Don't you? They're not watching. All right. So. You owe you have one obviously because they're not. Answer should have been. I loved them. All. I love right away that should have been your answer. Okay. Let me not ask that who's the smartest. It depends on for what like smart like stella's smart. And like she knows how to go to our dad and get what she wants CNN is super smart because she'll just have a complete meltdown freakout, and you'll give her whatever she wants to get her to shut up. Right. And then Eli super smart because he knows how to bad is is at you. And you give him whatever he wants, even though he can't speak. So we can't really ask for anything. Right. So so they just all sound manipulative. Yes. Aren't all children? All they are hungry manipulative little creature. Yes. Yes. They're always hungry and the always want everything. Yeah. That's why I don't have them. All right. Let's talk about Grey's anatomy. This is the fifteenth season. Will there be a sixteen season? Yes. Of course. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yeah. I was wondering if you I thought that there was a pilot ability that it wasn't. Well, my contract is still season sixteen and so I'm completely obligated to do season sixteen and you know, these numbers there's just no end in sight with streaming and the show is so popular, and I have to say again, I love coming here. Thank you for giving me this platform because not only do we get to do great things. But we get to say, thank you. Because everywhere I go whether it's Italy. Whether it's France London, Kansas the people that come up to me with tears in their eyes. And tell me how meaningful the show is to them. You know, the episode the last episode that I directed. What was the first episode? I directed actually it was a teenager was in the show, and he was gay and he played a gay character on my show. And after we had filmed the whole entire episode. He said to me, you know, my whole life. I've watched the show with my. Parents and I've sort of used to the show as a way to tell my parents that I was gay and to show my parents that it's okay that I'm not different. There's nothing wrong with me. And Gray's really helped my parents to understand what having a gay son meant in that it wasn't necessarily a bad thing. And from my parents to now, see me. As an actor getting apart on this show. You know is just been everything. So I gotta keep doing it, man. Because you know, we're touching lives in a difference. Yes. Yeah. You are. It's easy when you're working in television to think of it as a silly dumb TV show. I know I'm guilty of this with our own show. And then you hear about people who are laughing through our show to get through chemo. Or it's the one bright spot. They have in their day with whatever they're going through. And she seemed to be super moved by the people that come up and tell her that grace has been that for her. It was awesome story about Kevin Leman. Yes. Pretty incredible. When you think, you know, we're we're a little older than Kevin. We are a little older heaven started his career pretty much on this show. Yes. Yeah. Now, he's created other shows. And so he's worked on other shows because he's created them. But started and is still in his career on the Ellen Degeneres show. That's pretty incredible. Yeah. We've had the experience of working on other shows prior to the Ellen show. Not not every experience is as is as our experiences here. We are really really fortunate here. This our staff is incredible. And honestly it all started with Mary CONNER. Only sixteen years ago wanting to hire a staff of people who are who were nice people. And here we are sixteen years later, we have this amazing stuff. But also because we get to do things that change people's lives. I I've had I've had the fortune of working on a lot of successful shows. A lot of good shows. A lot of shows that I've been proud of. But we've gotten to help people here in a way that is new is new to me saying it's new to me and seven years ago. Are you're talking about. I think it was probably around seven years ago. So here's what happened. There was a woman in our audience. She was in an I remember it like it was yesterday. She's you know, I'm in the control room with Kevin she's in the audience. She's in an orange shirt which stood out in our audience and just at the site of Ellen entering the stage at the top of the show. We take a cut away of her the director, Liz takes a cut away of her. And she so overwhelmed with joy at seeing Allen just seeing her enter the stage. She's tearing off I it was infectious. So we're like, well, we gotta talk to her after the show and just learn more about her. She's unbelievable. And in getting to know her we learned that she has you know, that she's this incredible woman that it was a once a year trip that she planned with some coworkers. This one was to the Ellen show. But anyway, she's just special. She's a special woman we had her on the show. I we gave her a car. No, no, no. So when else giving yourself, she says, don't do it don't do it. No, don't do it. Which by the way in anytime. We do best moments on the show any of those packages that we do where we review some of our she's always in our top ten favorite moments love. And then so then after that can't not love her after that, we gave her the at the time was the biggest single thing we'd ever given anyone which was we partnered with KB home, and we built a home for her house, and that was just like a game changer for her, obviously. Yeah. And then we stayed in touch with you. But a few years went by and she she had a life update this time. And she she was here to tell us about the update. Yeah. Lisa. I love seeing all those flashbacks and everything that we've done. It's been fun. It's amazing. Yeah. Been amazing. All right. It's good to see you. And when I heard about this, obviously we wanted to see you. And and find out. What's you look fantastic. Don't you worry? How how are you feeling right now? Well, good. By now. I'm here. This makes me so happy. I mean, everything you've done. I'm so happy right now. We'll happy anyway. So that's good. I'm glad happiness was making you feel good. So let's talk about the diagnosis. How? And when did you find out? Well, I mean, it was a fluke to me. I was one of my friend's house, and I come into this and hurt. So I went home, and you know, coach, you go home and take your clothes, and I actually saw a big mess. It had never seen it before. But it was there is huge. So I just felt that I knew that. So the scan and they found it in my liver. So that made it stage four okay took him on Monday. Yeah. And it's okay. It's okay. I'm getting through this a lot better than the other. You're a strong strong woman. I heard your doctors were really excited when you told them you were coming here. It's Larry is. I mean, I got serious MBMD's them. And I wanted to make sure that I could come, you know, fly after the chemo, right? And they asked me what are you gonna might? Well, I'm going to L Joe what? Yep. Go thank Google me Greek. Sorry. And they went Gooby MD's doctors, and nurses, you're famous you're famous, and they wanna know the show is going to 'em Dr Mara's he's oncologist. He wants to make sure that his wife knows when the show's don't watch every day. Wow. Yes. Well, I want Dr Ameris. Yes. All right. Take good care of her. Please. I want everybody. Really? I love this woman. She's our family you've got to take care of her. All right. So we're gonna take a break, and we have just well, we'll give it to you now. And then I'll talk about something what? Of like, they want to help you because you going through some some medical bills and everything so check for twenty five thousand dollars is going to help. I was so taken by how moved Ellen was. Chatting with Lisa German again. And how Ellen kept referring to Lisa as part of the family a little bit too, which which we have all believed and Ellen hasn't seen her in a number of years, and they just sort of fell back into this lovely little friendship that they've that. They've had all these years. One of the things that's amazing to watch producing the show is to watch the way Ellen is inspired by regular people who overcome adversity. Yeah. Versus really really moves Ellen. And that's really meaningful to us. Yeah. I think that's what's meaningful to our view. I mean, I don't know. See what drives through to do the show now. But yeah. Yeah. Fuel as loves to be funny. She loves to be entertaining. She also loves to be inspired and introduce all of us to people that inspire her and she really found Lisa's tackling her health issues inspiring. You know, as executive producers, we all know, everything that's going to happen in the show, we planet. We talk about it, except when it involves scaring one of us or something that's going to humiliate one of us, usually me. My question is do you guys ever have meetings and think because we're talking about inspiring people, maybe Ellen should give a Hindi. A shutter flight check. Not just asking I'm not saying it should happen. But does the idea at least come up? I'm going to be honest with you Andy never once had a conversation where we said Andy should give out that I showed her flagger. What about Andy should be able to sit in the audience for twelve days show? Also, no, no. We thought about surprising you with lap band surgery. This is what? This is what? The appointment on your own. So then we were able to. We were going to give you a seat in the audience for a twelve day show. And then we remembered you would not stay in the seat. You would leave to go backstage innovate and then stagger in front of a camera in the middle of. You should just give it to an audience coming up with lots of ways for you guys to come to the show. So keep your ears on our Twitter and Instagram and on the show for twelve surprises. Some lucky podcast listener is going to win all of the twelve days of giveaways.

And they're great at the comedy and they struggle with the interviews. Some people come in really struggle with doing stand up comedy monologue. But they're pretty good at interviews. Jen seemed to be the trust the monologue and was really quite comfortable having conversations people in our state she was afraid of it. She was not intimidated. It was not daunting to her. Now I will say talking to welfare. Otani will slit. Selena Gomez is one thing but ellen can also talk to a two year old who can did not speak ends up being a very compelling hilarious interview Holy Crap this Kid Oh my God. Mary has a great picture. He's our very first guest. who had a crib in there addressing their own dressing room two years old the living room? And there's a pack and play set up in his room youngest longest I believe guest.

I believe his last name is with parents with his mom and Dad Yep and they come around a little corner to make their entrance and Harry just breaks off from his parents goes an entirely early different circuitous direction to get to Ellen arrived at Ellen like couldn't have been further out in front of his acute just runs up grabs. Her by the knees is like soccer balls and then he sits down and later in the interview that before before for the purpose of later in the interview. There's a stack of black cards. That are going to have pictures cards. Yeah of I think flags Allen's going to hold up and he is going to say where the two things come to mind. I stack is a pretty big stack of cards. And the first thing he does when he sits down his hit it and go. Let's do the do the does he talk. He just wants to show you that he knows. And the second thing that blows me away is on. The back of each board is the name of the country that the flag represents because we don't know what the flood so ellen knows the answers when she's quizzing him so he looks over at the stack of flags that are upside down so he can't see the flags but on the back of the top board. It says Australia and he at two years old can and read. It reads Australia Australia crazy to kids. Who makes me angry that my kids don't do anything special? I'm kidding I love my kids. They're rockstars they're adorable and the kids are amazing. This kid is this kid is special special. He is really he is really really funny and And His dad told a very funny story about his sons. In addition to flags and shapes of countries he also really likes logos. The Dad tells a funny little story about quizzing him on logos take a listen.

Yeah okay so we surprise you at your house. Genie showed up. What did you think when you saw? GD It was amazing We couldn't believe it. We were like absorb shock. We so we gave you all twelve days everything that we gave away for all right the game. That was the big TV. It's it's nice to have a big TV. So I can see you like more wider. If anyone ever asked you the question what do you do when Ellen text you. The answer is say yes and do whatever he's asked one uh they really were a lovely and took great care of them and I think sweeping stay in touch with them like they really. There's nothing more gratifying to me than seeing a family that just they just get Ellen tart yes very very very sweet yes Sir yes lover Ellen Explains Jokes so every once in a while. We'll do jokes on the show yet but we think everyone knows jokes like fake audience member. Who's actually a staff member member in less than to leave heart of a skit? Yes exactly. It's it's obvious that Ellen. It's not something Ellen would do for real for real. She's doing comedy. I want to believe in my heart when people on instagram or twitter. See these things right. These comments they're trying to be funny. They're trying they're trying to get a rise out of us. Yeah I'm hoping that's what it is but I don't know it doesn't seem like Some of them are and then some of them really think that we've asked a woman to leave our audience. Yes okay I don't watch our show and think that we're asking someone to leave our audience. You ignore all the other their parts were saying because I just think people believe what they see see. Oh Gosh so ellen has to go through she gets out of it. And that's the three hundred fifty million. There's some three hundred people in this country and like me some of them not so bright but we all the writers love when they see all all these like comments on the bits that they will work on so every once in a while ellen will will take a stack into L. initial pick ones that she'd like to clear up ellen really honestly believe leave that people miss it that she just refuses to believe that people think that she actually asked a woman to leave. She has a daughter. Or we've only shown. Yeah exactly so we cleared some of those up for Ya did here. You go recently. Our show upset some people and Here's what what happened. We were playing holy. Roller the game. Where you throw the ball trying to get through the little hole and I told a contestant if she missed it I'd kick her out of the audience and she missed it and and as a joke I pretended to kick her out and people online thought it was real and felt bad for her? So then we did this. Feel bad that you missed the twelve days. So you're back act now and you'll stay today's giveaways okay but one person is going to have to go because I need a seat. Do do your next to the red right here yeah you. What's your name? Marianne what Marianne okay. You're going to have to leave. Leave take her seat. Okay and so fixed ono now you can leave all right. She made it all the way here running and then falls walking. Thank you so much. I know you appreciate it. No you're welcome stellar by so that was another joke but then we got comments like this. My heart hurts for the lady who left her seat for Stella. She looked so sad. Hope she gets to go back to. She did not get to go back. Because it wasn't a real audience member. She was wearing a microphone. That would have been a tip off when someone's miked in the audience. I can't believe you thought that I would really kick someone out. I'm the one who says behind signed the end of every single show but this is a comedy show and sometimes we ask people to play characters in the audience. Sometimes I use my staff and sometimes we hire actors. One time I hired Brad had pit because he wasn't getting any work and he was struggling and I threw him Abon then he went and he just WanNa Golden Globes. I think he's back on his feet so we probably don't need to help help him anymore. But some people don't seem to understand that these are jokes that they're not real and someone showed me this. When you Google me? Here are the top questions that come up. How old is Ellen's daughter? WHO WAS ELLEN SON? Okay I'm shocked by this. This these are the first things that come years ago. We did a bit where I said that I had a daughter named rafter yellow and that was an actress playing rafter yellow. I don't have a daughter and then once I did a bit where I said I had a son on. This is not my real son. Don't have a son. That's my writer Jason. Who went to Harvard this contract? I have to say you went to Harvard every time I say his name. Here's an easy way to tell something as I say is true if I say it's true like like this is true. I you know that it's true because I said this is true except when it's it's not true and I say this is true just to be funny then saying this is true as part of the joke even though it's not true you're also GonNa WanNa Watch that because it helps to see all all the things but No no no we did. It is because you know what Andy we didn't talk about. You had a line on the show this week with a friend before before Aniston before she came in that day and said I'd love to do some work with you know she's actually never he said the words. I WANNA do some scene work. That's not it's not a it's not a turner phrase people use any way. There is a part. If you haven't seen it go back and watch it where Jennifer Aniston and I have a chat and what segment so tell us what happens when she sits she sits down and she refers to something Ellen Ellen did and said and she doesn't believe it to be true. I happen to have proof that Allen was telling the truth and so what happened was interrupted. How so how did you say it? Actually Jen. We have a tape. We have some video and then there was much more. You should watch it but there was a whole scene. There was seen in the whole scene. And make it into the show or was any of it cut I'm pretty sure it's all in there so unless it got cut I'd be upset now. Of course it's in there. She got to work with me. You don't think that's but it was. You know we we know each other socially so for her. It was. Yeah so Lon you saw her. Socially I think I saw her at guerrilla Palooza and was told not to approach her fail but yeah so yes I did. I worked with her this week on camera work. Yeah Yeah Yeah but that was really more. You Know Jen as a favored saying we will use the writers. What happened was the writers wrote that they needed someone on the stage to return and it was one of two people you were married and I want it that they you know whatever reason got it so yeah it was exciting and I think they pick you over Mary that when they pick you over Mary because they feel better chance that you're going to do something ridiculous and then my line? I actually got a lot of feedback on it going to act and I know it was just so funny. Because it's airing just today. It hasn't hasn't aired yet. I know but I'm already getting colds and people are texting you. Yeah I'm blowing up. What else we got a lot of show that there's plenty of show? We a lot of show and I got a review. Because you're sort of the business guy of the four of us on a show like that. What do we you get paid for on a regular podcast and is there extra money for us when we deliver show? I can do that math for you. I can break down released. What do we do we do? We do not get any money for the podcast and we continue to get no money. Even if we do more on the podcasts Matt Fair just wanted to make sure yeah so. We're working for free. We're working for free but we're not sure anyone's listening. We're we're sure what knows listening. We're all overpaid. But this is work work that we're doing pro bono. Oh that's this is our pro bono. Where we're doing this for the good of the really? Yeah yeah this is like a I. I'm not sure I feel overpaid. I feel I feel well paid. Yeah I feel you guys are still on an hourly hourly punch a clock all right bye default emotion when I wake up is I'm lucky to be days going to be the day. They realize yes.

Who's hit a neighbor of L? Always a great guest. Very intelligent alarium. Intelligent, cool. I like her a lot. Anyway, she was here. And they talked a lot about Ellen being her neighbor out by the beach, and how Ellen is there more than they are at the beach house, and how Ellen is kind of the local news for her and sort of fills her in on everything going on on the beach. And she told the hilarious story about how meal and Ashton's kids. Don't really they're young kids. They don't really know that meal in Ashton or famous. They don't know that the lady who lives down the street LS does famous Ellen's just the blonde lady, they know from the beach. Yeah. And then a box of Cheerios comes into the house, right? That has Ellen's picture on it. And here's a clip of Mula talking about that. I I know I've never seen you. I don't think I I'm so used to seeing you in like, sweatpants or pajamas. We we live on the beach share you don't need to. Yeah. It cleans you off when the wind hits you, it's it's almost like a shower. We we live very close to each other. And we're there more often than than she and Ashton. So I- update you when we have issues going on. I'll let you know if there's sharks in the ocean. I let you know if we're fluttered in wait. Can I talk about this? Yeah. So. This is surreal life. Like, you have to realize I get updates about rain drainage, flooding weather from Ellen videotaping our house water, but with commentary coming from you. So it's like a disaster is happening. But it's funny 'cause you're like, oh, oh, and it's like just like flood coming through my house and laughing at it. And it's so twisted during the commentary, and it's like weird surreal life. Right. Wait on that note. I was telling them backstage why it's reaction to you on the Cheerios box. Can I say this? Yes. Okay. So I have a four year old daughter, no concept of anything other than like, I am a mom, and Ellen is a human that lives next door to us. So this weekend. I really want some cereal, and I was like it will just go in the painter and grab yourself some serious. She grabs the trio box. She looks NGOs money on its shoe squats. And I was like young. She's like why? I had no answer. Like, I was like Honey and pointed it's Ashton and his response like well anyone can be on the. Anybody? How dare you not making bigger deal of? Did you go to Madonna's party last night? I did you weren't there. I was not. There was I was resting at the beach. How late did you stay out really late? How to thirty. Wow. That is late. It was really like. But I'll say this. We had to leave the house at eight o'clock in order for me to not fall asleep. It's it's the kind of party everybody goes, they go after all the other parties, and it's guy in Madonna, and he told me that he went to bed at four thirty and left two hundred people in his house still going when he went to bed at four thirty. There have been years where those people end up falling asleep in our driveway. She lives on the state here in town. She lives next door to him. And so, yeah, that's a it's one of the weirdest moments when you wake up and you're like, oh, wow. I gotta take my kids to school. So I'm going gonna roll you. And and it's and it's a celebrity one hundred percent of the yes, there's nobody butts. Larry's at that party. So there's someone asleep on your driveway. Yeah. And having last year, it was surreal. That's hilarious. Gonna find out who that isn't it? The other thing that Mula mentioned on the show is that Elin mercilessly teases meal and action about one of their kids. Never walking. Yes. They carry them so much. Yeah. I love when her neighbors are on because we get to hear like these little stories that would otherwise never never get Ellen certainly not gonna tell us. Ellen also tried to pressure her into agreeing on the air to guest host for us. And it was funny because meal was like I mean, I'm nervous enough to do the show just as your guests and yet and yet again later, she's agreed to do. The so that'll be really fun intense peer pressure really worked. You guys I love of learning never stops. And there are so many interests to explore in hobbies to develop in great courses.

Lisa Jarman was an audience member in our show like maybe six years ago, and she was wearing this bright orange top and when Ellen entered we took a shot of Lisa off of the show at the top of the show. We took a shot of Lisa Jarman who was basically in tears and sort of like fanning or face and and her you could see her just her, unfiltered joy at seeing Ellen hit the stage.

Let's learn more about her and from there, we have had the most amazing relationship with Lisa we learned that she had never been to the show before that she took a trip with some friends from Houston for the sole purpose of seeing the Ellen show. That's what the trip was based around took care of a lot of family members. We've. Found out kids grandkids like just and so we had her on the show, and we gave her a car, and we impersonated her around here for years because when Ellen was trying she said, I it makes me wanna do something. Nice for you. I like the way you react. And I wanna do something. Nice you. So I wanna give you a gift, and she said don't do it. Don't do do that. She was just too emotional sheets. I don't make me more excited. I don't I'm not sure I can physically take you giving me some and just. Just like she had already won an already had everything she needed by just being at the show and being there and having a conversation. Didn't need anything else. A spirit of this woman filled our audience fill Dr staff with joy, she was just all goodness. So then, of course, she gets her car, and we love that reaction we go. Well, what are we going to? What are we gonna give her next time? So we gave her a house. I mean, we didn't just give her a house for the reaction. We gave her a house because she was she had adult family living with her raising their kids with her. And there was just there was just need there. And she had this spirit that was just like nothing we'd ever felt. So we so we we gave her we gave her a house and we wanted to surprise her with the house. So we told her it was happening. And then we said, no, you have to stay away from where they're building the house because when the house is done we want to surprise you. You guys have seen all the HDTV shows like you want to surprise people with the house, and then we got wind that Lisa kept driving by the house and cheating getting Jeff taking looks at the house because she wanted to see was so excited about what was happening. And that is a spirit of Lisa. She always wanted to help others. She always wanted to give back and the producers and the people who found her on our show stayed in touch with her over the years and would fill a sin on what was going on in her life. And how great the house was and how happy she was. So we had her with Lisa and a bunch of other get previous guests from show in the audience of I think are two thousand show to celebrate some of our favorite guests. So yes, I think it was two thousand show, and they started a group text after that show because they were all in the audience together. They started a group ten they called it lucky thirteen because they were all here for thirteen in our thirteenth season. Yeah. And they stayed in touch, and we stayed in touch. And then we got word last fall that Lisa was sick. She's diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer, breast cancer. And so we brought her here immediately. And we put her in the audience of a twelve day show, and we called her down and spoke to her, and we just she'd been here so much we all just and we'll and and particularly Ellen just loved her so much that we dedicated a seat in the audience to her, and that's something we've only done for maybe four or five people and not a none of them were non celebrities. And I remember all of us saying like we've got to do more for her. We have what else can we do for. She's such a big part of the family. She's going through this terrible pain. And I remember Tracy saying honestly that will be more to her than anything else we do. And she was we were all like, oh, there's gotta be something else will get absolutely right. She fell apart. She likes felt like part of our family. She stayed in touch with everyone through every step of the way. So she was she was we gave her the sheet that. Was the original seat? She sat in the very first time. She came to the show and she loved this. She loved it. So so very much and finally two weeks ago, we lost her. She passed. And it was really hard on on on on our staff. Like, I'm sure it was really hard on our family. I did not see her family after she passed, but it was really hard on some animals. Awesome staff here who really and also. She was here. She talked about the fact that she wishes she would have had her yearly exam. Yeah. And that she was an in sort of that, you know, really resonated with our audience in the importance of having your yearly mammogram, and she lets it was one of the first thing she said to Ellen Ellen just just when a few years without getting it. And I wish I would have gotten them Ellen was touched by was really affected by her passing. And the tribute that we put together for her to celebrate her life and her best friend Renita who came every time with Kim every time with her. It was really amazing. Well, we did not tell Ellen. We learned on Thursday night or Friday, and we just didn't we didn't want to give Ellen that news over the weekend. So we didn't tell her we told her Monday, and like you say it it rocked her. And then we dedicated that we took we cancelled everything on a show the following week that we could we kept. Celebrity lead, and we cancelled everything else, and we put we dedicated the whole back half of our show to to attribute to Lisa we brought her friends from the lucky thirteen group text in and I thought it was just beautiful. I I really loved it. So and and it's a segment that it was half the show. So we're not gonna play the half the show here. So if it'll still be on your DVR, if you wanna go watch it, but here's here's a piece of that. If you've been watching our show for a long time, you're probably familiar with our friend. Lisa Jarman, we first met Lisa eight years ago, and she was sitting right over there in our audience, and we fell in love with her spirit and enthusiasm and over the years. She became a big part of the Ellen show family last week. We got the heart breaking news at Lisa passed away after battling breast cancer. And today we want to celebrate her life and honor her legacy first. Here's a look back at Lisa. She is now Allen did generous. No one last week. It was somebody in the audience that got my attention when I'm John. Fresno, Texas, and I'm a single mom. I'd never say that I'm cooler. I never say that I'm struggling because to me, I'm not to me. I just live like I live all managed comes from the Lord up villain. Me on this date at sit worth star. Starring my books and in that see my whole life. So here's what happened. We saw that. Okay. Not yet. We saw that energy and I loved him so much, and I said I wanna meet her. They. And I love you even more now talking, and we know. Love your reaction when your supplies, and so what does the cry again? Oh. Okay. I know you need it. I know you need a new look up brand new car. From two gives you life changing something, I just wanna help you in any way. Can I also could also also also also I wanna give you all twelve days the giveaways. Taint that for that. Anyway, we love you. Lisa mature family. You will live on every montage we ever play near you'll see these holy Lisa. Lisa lives on with us. And with all the people in her life because she really all viewers light for anyone who came into contact with her and to it speaks to the relationships that form between our staff, and the guests when they come into their lives, like someone's, you know, in the news for something or there's a viral video or we just meet him because they watched the show, and they send a letter and we put them on the show. And you know, what happens is that is the beginning of a relationship between that person that rights are that family and our show, and particularly our human interest staff on our show and those relationships indoor you know for forever. We've we've a producer who doesn't work on the show anymore. She works on Jimmy Fallon show on the tonight show. Her name's Vicky and Vicky produced Emily bear on our show. Emily Baer was like a six year old piano prodigy and Vicky producer, Emily. Bear is now seventeen wrote the music for Ellen's. The Nancy drew movie, which is coming out any minute wrote the music for the top of the movie and for the closing credits. And she's beautiful seventeen year old pianist who recently texted me a picture of her with Emily Baer. Like they've known each other for ten years now, it's really cool. Amazing. And I would say that this past weekend genie who you guys all know, and our producer. Tracey gold flew to Houston to attend the memorial service for Lisa jarmin's. And they were so happy they went they came to us and said, do you mind if we leave early on Friday, so we can go to this service? And we're like without a doubt, we love that you want to be there and Lisa's family was touched and said that Lisa often talked about her two families her Ellen show family and her family in Houston, and and Tracy might also from the bachelor recap show. Absolutely. These are people who come onto our staff. They've no on camera experience. They've never. An on camera in their lives. And now, they're both, you know on camera. Is what trying to say? But I don't you know. We love them and celebrity huge in a very average way. But he's a celebrity for sure. Kev. You're our game. Our game guy game tester guy. Tell us about what's going on. With some of these games though this past week. We try to couple of new ones we tried one called willy whipper. I'm sorry. Willie with for if you say it's slower, you'll say will he with her her you say it faster. What is it Willie with her it away, not great and? Another game called tro jumper, basically if it has a slight peanuts innuendo. It's probably again that I thought that we're gonna try on the show, and and if you're listening, and you had two games one just on the title, one called willy whipper, Willie from one culture. Trump Trump, you could probably guess which rate raise your hand right now who thinks that Willie whipper is the one that went. Well. Okay. All right. Hey, what's your hands down? Okay. Now. Raise your hand. If you think Trudeau chopper was the game that went well now, grab your Steeler right now. I may not know how Cass work. I don't know what your scores. Whereabout try really stupid new game. If all will he with her? This is how this game works. It's as I said stupid. Each wife is where a gay Senate ball behind them. And when I say go, the husbands most crawl around on this Matt and find their wife, and when he finds his wife and thinks he knows her since he's going to crow back to me and hit this button. That noise means everyone else must freeze is soon as you hear this. Raise the first husband will guess if he guesses correctly and identifies. What his ladies, smells like wins. If not we continue on it seems easy crawl and find your woman. Who is this? What does she smell my quiz Mo's like chocolate? You are correct. Luckily, if you just watch the show Ellen then says after playing willy with her. She says that stupid we'll ever play that again. We'll. And she was just feel how does it feel when you're in the control room and you've created this game? And you're trying it out on the air. How does it feel to get Ellen's real time? Critique of the game. I mean, I honestly don't mind at that. He doesn't it's interesting many games we have to try. They're not going to be winners. And she thought she was we're all laughing about what's amazing about being. I think that's an amazing quality Kevin has I mean if you're going to be a writer, especially a comedy writer. You gotta have a thick skin. Because a lot of what you do gets rejected. Some if it gets rejected before it ever gets to air, some of it gets you get asked not to do it again after the show airs, and then once in a while, you have the exquisite moment of Ellen saying to the world this game socks, and they all have Kevin the same way. Which is I got more. Right. I mean, I love what I can do that. Makes her laugh Joe chopper. She's like what what is this game surprise? Because just not the way her brain works. He can figure out ways to fix a game punch them up. Right. She's not coming with. Yeah. So a tro Trumper. She liked very very much, very funny. Then showed it NBC. They for some reason thought the chose look too much like penises, right? I didn't see those were 'cause they have thirty mine today. Jenny Craig the people dying. Groom Sahera, they're filthy. Jimmy fine with it. It seemed as though Sahara was the one who I don't know. She just saw a certain way, and I was shocked. She saw it was the person looking up with their mouth open and a giant Chiro being lowered it. Okay. Well. That's the fun. This is our indestructible Chiro chopper machine. One team will sit back to back, and where the Trump Trumper boots the boots are attached to a string, which holds the Truro dangling above your teammate, the higher you lift your leg the lower. The Chiro will be for your teammate you and your team mate must eat your trolls up to that line. The red line there without using your hands whichever team can eat both Chiro the fastest wins sit on down there. And we're gonna Mike you I like that. My my shoes are featured in this. Ready? Go trump. Now. You have to eat to the line. We purposely didn't even we purposely didn't even show them the clip of the guy from West Hollywood who finished the Chiro in about one bite. Yeah. King down fall park knocking on what was going on excu- didn't have a chance. Watch the show because they're very visual to see Chiro chompers and Willie with Willie whiff or you should just watch to see how bad and then when season three of game of games airs, you'll take a look to see if you can figure out a game that has evolved from either really whipper or Chiro jumper. I just approved a budget ferry expensive test of a game on our show from the brain of Kevin Leman, which one no Hodgman ball, Taj Mahal joie ball. Yes. So this was going to be like penises it's going to be like the hall. We don't want to give it away. But look look watch this space. Go on the Ellen show in late March early April and tonight, you all your favorites. The only other time we're gonna put taste buds game tonight stink tank for the second time. The only time people seem this will be on tonight. It's a really good physical games. Some people like competitive games. My favorite games are games. That were the the contestants are put in the most. Holy Larry's situations and amuses Ellen so much and taste buds. Is that game for you're gonna like damn funny? It's a good one. And if and if we don't know if you've already talked about this or not, but if you have a second just go to Ellen tube and look for Dax Shepard. And Kristen bell playing taste buds on the Ellen show.

Putting giant waits on top of two hundred and thirty pounds worth of way. Yes, he's planking with two hundred and thirty pounds on his back. Here's the thing that's amazing to me. We ask a lot of celebrities to do a lot of things in the interest of just having fun. And doing fun stuff on the show. Right. They don't have to do it. Some of them don't want to do it. It's just a goes above and beyond for them. They wanna come in chat. Talk about the project. We asked them to do a lot, and a lot of them are really cool about it. Justin Hartley went above and beyond. Yes, all month, long Ulta beauty is helping us raise money for breast cancer research foundation, and you said you can do a plank for a long time, so you're gonna do a plank while I talk to you this NEF segment the entire time until we go to commercial. Okay. To raise money. Yeah. But you said along, I said, I said minute to three, I don't you. You said a long time. Yeah. Okay. So you're doing until we go to break because sits ten thousand dollars for for research. So you you allowed to shift, whoa. But the longer I talked the shorter the plane. We're just cut this out. Yeah. All right. Do it on your. Yeah, gimme that. Never see that again. ROY. Enjoy it. You deserve it, right, right. Here's good yet. Do you like it like that or. Oh, you like to do it on your elbows? I think it's harder on your elbows. Isn't it? We'll find out. Do you do the thing where you go back and forth up and then back down again on your because that's hard to have you done that? I've done that, but I don't know how long I would be able to do that. Extremely hard. All right. So. Okay. Well. I wanna find out because you do work out a whole lot, and I heard you do the cryotherapy thing that that because Mark Wahlberg does that a lot of people do that and we've put Andy in at any hated it is this cold? It's really cold. There's there's actually a, there's a this is harder talk. See we put Andy it and he he didn't like it because it's like negative two hundred million degrees or something. Yes, negative two hundred. But how long do you stay in it. Shorter than this plank. Two minutes to do it every day. No, no, no. When I when I get sore, I'll probably do it right after I leave here. They should've kept it around. Who was your first celebrity crush. You. Live. You've lied. And so now I have to wait on your back. It would be better for its water because then you'd have to balance. Oh my God. Are you serious? Well, it's going to spill. Right, but I'm not laughing. Are you? Are you tired already a little bit? How long has it been? It's been that long. I have so many other questions. Let me say two minutes. Wow, I need to buck up here. Let's say, what's your favorite cereal. So I just my daughter found this new one. I don't know what it's called, but it's it's like captain crunch, but it's filled with chocolate. So that sounds healthy. Father of the year, right. Oh my God, how much money we raising ten ten thousand dollars. Yes. Yeah. Good, good. About. Asked them to plank for an entire act of our show. Yeah. Did it questions out of the blue, try to throw him off his game while he's at Mike, and she puts she puts a mug on mug of water. She puts enough, no. Then she puts a plant on top of that. You take those off and climbs on top of him and he's planking with Ellen on his back, whatever he eats, it must be working. And I know that meals are a challenging time for busy families, especially for doubt. No, I know it's hard with our busy schedules to get home and put on a fresh nutritious meal on the table. Andy. What is what? Like, how does dinner work at your house? We go home. We're tired. Yeah. And a lot of times there's not a meal ready. Hope Laurie where so Laurie, if you're listening. Where's dinner. He's fired. If the podcast seventy three fired from his marriage, what are you? Archie bunker is gonna kick your? No, I'm just saying that sometimes you come home after a long day. And it just wasn't either. Wasn't a research. You live on a diet of doughnuts and Cheetos, and you're criticizing your white for criticizing days. I just say, sometimes you get home and you, you're expecting a meal, and it's. So funny because I talked to Laurie and she says the same thing. The point is, I think the meal mealtime. Stop. Tear podcasts. Kevin is mealtime. Mattel, families for busy families. It's hard with busy schedules to get home and put a fresh nutritious meal on the table pointed out.

I started watching in twenty two. I was in high school. I was getting bully and I remember this one day I came back home and I had to do a lot of homework. But instead I went on YouTube and I saw the clip of us scaring Taylor swift in the bathroom, and they ended up watching you for three hours and they've been watching you since. Wow, that's that's the because I scared Taylor swift. Did you ever do that homework. They no. All right. So when you play the game, you won twenty five hundred dollars. And what did you do with that? Money gave all the money to my mom because she doesn't work and my dad passed away almost three years ago, and so I try to do the best chance help her. And so that money that you gave me, she was so grateful and shoes so thankful. So she says, think you, oh, well, that's what her name you can call her ING Hyang. You're welcome. Your daughter is amazing. You raised a good one. All right. So if you if you didn't have to give the money away, what would you have done with that money? Okay. Honestly, I love at by Ellen, so I would probably buy the sneakers and the sweaters because they're so cute and the rest of it, I would give it to. And I'm not saying this just because you're here.

How old Dulcie oil. This is going to be five in November, and I'll is two and a half. Now when you go to like play dates and stuff, do you find that the moms show up a lot. The moment show below in those things anyway, you know, it's all because. You're there. I don't know, we're, we're plumbing. Dulcie fifth birthday, the moment on we're trying to get away from two years with with the police seemed. With this year, we're having think we're disco is the new thing. She liked of find your old. She. I don't know where she go, but somehow in our highs, one of those discu light like nothing's turned on its. Night, like a chain has all these different settings, different colors. She's very taken by. So she's so now she's going to like Gloria gainer all of a sudden because just because there's a like, I don't know if that's very strong premise. No, it's just really a light. It's really the music. Eventually bring a cake quite solid, but the when the thing I enjoyed the, I'll really seems like you'd be ready to move on from Winnie the Pooh, but it and you control the party anyway. So you can do whatever you want to. I'm every year Roy's there's always of other 'tigers there. Invariably, a lot of the other kids figures. I'm the biggest ticker. Congratulations on that. Good for you. Andy. Have you gotten your new toothbrush yet? Yes, and I- frigging love it. It's called the quip on my gods, electric toothbrushes. One of the most important things. One of the most important things we do for our health everyday brushing our teeth. Yes. And yet most of us don't do it right quick is a better electric. Toothbrush created by dentists and designers. Quick was designed to make brushing your teeth, more simple of Ford -able and even enjoyable. Why switch to quip years a few Ray then, what Andy, I think the customer wanna hear from me because then they know I'm trying to set you up. Okay, Andy. Why should I switch to quip? Let me give you a few reasons. Mary, a lot of people tend to brush too hard, and some electric toothbrushes are too abrasive. Quip sensitive sonic vibrations are gentle on your sensitive gums and your all now that you've lost most of your teeth. But that's, here's, this is this. I'm gonna say this next fact about quip would be very helpful in my home because it has a built in two minute timer that pulses. Thirty seconds to remind you when to switch sides, helping guide a full and even clean up to ninety percent of us don't brush for the full two minutes or don't clean evenly. How long how long do you brush were? Well, first of all, I, I only brushed the outside of my frontier. Yeah, you gotta go all the way around what works. It's easier for me. It's not fair for me because I have my dentures in glass over. And then I put him in and then I just need. I just figured nobody saw my back teeth. So what's the point. I'm just saying that every night, my daughter Katie and I have a little brushing contest, bedtime. And and quip would would help me win quips multi-use cover mounts to your mirror. Wow. Mouse to your mirror and announced to slide over your bristles for on the go brushing this declutter is your sink or cabinet and makes traveling with an electric. Toothbrush easier. Quip doesn't require clunky charger, and it runs for three months on one charge that would help my wife travels with an electric toothbrush and it needs its own luggage. My favorite part brush heads are automatically delivered on a dentist, recommended schedule of every three months for just five bucks three out of four people use bristles that our old worn out or ineffective. That's really cool feature. Like I said, the automatic delivery is so key. I have a shaving kit that I do that with program, and I get my razors and I just don't have to think about it. And now you get it with your with and when you're single handedly running, daytime, talk show with the help of you guys. You don't always have the time to go out and get the thing this way comes right to the home and maybe for you. You can use this lying down, which is. Cliff is one of the first electric toothbrushes accepted by the American dental association and has thousands of verified five star reviews. That's why they're backed by over twenty thousand dental professionals. All right, here's the great part. Quit starts at just twenty five dollars. And if you go to get quip dot com slash l. on right now, you get your first refill pack for free with a quip, electric toothbrush. That's your first refill pack, free meaning zero dollars point. Zero cents at g. e. t. q. u. i. p. dot com. Slash l. at quip dot com slash l. dead quip. I'm obsessed with my teeth that's always drink out of a straw. Oh my God. This, this is going to change your life. I know I need that toothbrush and it's why we're very passionate about the straw log. It's become a big deal, like the straws. Yeah, there's there's a lot of debate about, you know how horrible plastic straws are. But the problem today actually in the US we go through enough straws to fill a bus every single day that's strategies that is crazy. And the city of Malibu California has outlawed plastic straws. You can't. They can't get unbelievable is and what I think was so funny about what what Ellen talked about this week is we really haven't figured out. Yes, what the solution is. Right. Hey, for straws. And if people. Ed glavin has a home on the beach, and I went down and had breakfast at near him the other day, and they gave us a penny pasta too as paradise she's like, well, when you talk about that then becomes the whole model on now I, there's a, there's a Starbucks at the end of beach, and I'm not gonna lie to you. I spend a lot of time in that Starbucks and they look for their. He's the one holding drink one each house money. Yeah, I be it's a beach house on wheels, but it's still it's ocean adjacent. That's true. You can see the ocean from porch. I spend a lot of time at that Starbucks and they have these first of all, they went from the plastic straw to the paper. Venti straw. Yeah, for me, I love now. I love neckers in the ocean. I spent a lot of time in the ocean. I support the ban on plastic straws. The venti paper straw was not a great option. Now they've that's gone now. It's just a single straw for venti and 'Grande cups barely. Bigger Cup and that's no good. It's not gonna work. Well, here's, here's thing of all. I've had the of us the penny straws at that restaurant and my kids like to take them home because they always go, they wanna cook them. But when we were in Seattle in August where Ellen was shooting her stand up special and the first Starbucks there they had. They had something in between a paper straw and a full on plastic straw. Did you? Did you try those straws? I don't think I got those. There was like a come postal straw, so it was made out of trash? No, it it would. It would disintegrate disintegrate I say no, it was. It was like a week. It felt like a week, plastic straw, so much superior to a full on paper straw, but it seems to me like Starbucks is trying to solve the plastic straw problem. Listen, Starbucks is an amazing company and they're going to figure it out, but they haven't figured it out yet. Anyway. So Ellen does this monologue and it was fantastic. I was thinking that we live in a world that's constantly changing, and that's good. Like your credit cards one day to swipe and the next day you have to stick it in. And I hear that they're working on a new technology where you're going to have to put your thing down, flip it and reverse it. Your mitten. Yep. Yep. But there's something else that's changed cently that made a lot of news, plastic straws. They used to be fine, and now the devils were shop. That's what they are there. A lot of places have stopped using plastic straws since they're bad for the environment and plastic straws will because of plastic straws lakes are being filled with sludge. Pollution is filling the air, endangered species are being hunted down. Sorry, that's because of the current administration. Last. I can't even get it out of my mouth. I'm so upset. Community, say that sentence pleasant straws our problem, and I think that we should do everything we can to protect our environment and the animals, but I'm not sure that we figured out the best way to replace plastic straws. Because right now they're replacing them with paper straws. And they say that there's good plastic straws, but the only time they don't work really is if you put them in any kind of liquid. Or if you put your mouth on them that. Or if you try to put them through a hole in the lid, otherwise they work, they work perfectly. Have you tried using a paper straw, anybody, everybody, it's it's a race against time because you have to, you have to drink all the liquid you can before the paper closes up. And then you have to take the top off and drink it with your mouth like some kind of animal. I saw this one place is replacing classic straws with pasta tubes, and I think it's probably wouldn't drunk guy at the olive garden, but that's using your noodle. Thank you. Thank you. Sorry. I know. Couldn't let it go. I'm only so strong. When when upon is right there, I've got to go for it. Subscribed today on apple podcasts or wherever you're listening right now and don't forget to watch Ellen weekdays for even more fun.

Let's say I mean two hundred calories because you're not going to burn much more walking well. According to my treadmill I am but I'm not. I WANNA see video approve of the calories on your treadmill. But let's say you burn two hundred calories. What do you do that I do? You eat like a nice Bagel or like a no. Here's here's what happens. Tell me because I exercise in the morning I end up leaving my home feeling good about myself and when I feel good and positive of an energetic I don't WanNa ruin it by eating a whole bunch of sugar and donuts like I normally do so. I'm not on a diet. I'm not on any eating plan but when I feel better about myself I don't WanNa ruin it by eating crap so it just makes me feel a little better just terrific. Because I can't do a program I can't be committed to anything because then I screw it up so you walk for like an hour a day depends some days. It's only a half hour some days. It's forty five somedays. It's an hour ten. It varies it's It it has been an hour on the weekend so then by that strategy like when you slow walk in the morning and you feel good about yourself you get your car. You're feeling good. Yeah your high powered executive in a nice car. Yeah then because you feel that way and you're inspired to eat better better. Yeah you wouldn't have a crepe with new telephone crepe truck would you okay. Well that's that's a good That's a good question. We that's a good question to celebrate. Celebrate the Carol Burnett Award and I believe the People's Choice Award we. We were gifted a CREPE card. A trump that trump's here and make crepes for us from our bosses. Here at Warner Brothers. Right Peter Roth L. L. when Donna Ready Linda the whole team when that happens it's rude. It sure is to not say. I will have a crepe extra butter and cinnamon cinnamon and sugar. Not Tell I like the straight butter cinnamon sugar and because I'm very visible and high profile. They would know if I didn't have a CREPE show I I need to respect. But that's a good example. I had that Crepe that day because I was was feeling okay that day and I had it and I just was more careful the rest of the day but yeah it was delicious crepes. Aren't that high in calories anyway way. Could there be calories extra battling cinnamon sugar calories. All I've had today's date Kokin Diet pills and I feel great here. Was the mistake. Learn here. Here was the mistake. What's that here's my my big mistake and I've been protecting Kevin from this? Big Mistake was telling Laurie how Great Kevin Looks.

Thank you so much you guys looked very handsome. Happy was so nice to see you with all your family down on the photograph. Great so much all right. It's very tan. So what was your brakes. Let's I agree break. It really really nice. Awesome Cape Cod. Spent some time with family and friends back there. We had a very nice. It's the best but then we all at the very end of our breaks Sunday on Sunday the last day of our break. We got to do something that was really a highlight that was absolutely spectacular. Attack was the Golden Globe awards. Were that Sunday night right before we came back to work and Ellen received the Carol Burnett Award for achievement in comedy the and television right and she is the first person to receive the Carol Burnett Award after Carol. Burnett herself right so you could say she's also this is. This is the second year of the award. So she beat Carol Burnett. Yeah I award take back so carol only one at once and Ellen is one at once and we'll see what happens. We'll see what happens next year. Burnett was there S. Kate McKinnon mom Saturday night. Live flew out to Los Angeles to make the Presentation of the award to Ellen and she gave an absolutely fantastic each and then ellen got up and gave a tremendous speech just a really really beautiful speech funny about having won the award we play it. Yeah you WANNA play it I yeah. Let's play play Ellen's here it is. Yes here's Ellen accepting her thank you so much to the Hollywood foreign press I feel humbled and honored to receive this. The first person after Carol Burnett is quite an honor. Thank you so much. It's a prestigious award in what I like. Most about it is that I knew coming in. I would win because Ooh I mean there's nothing worse than sitting there like most of you waiting and wondering if you're GonNa win lightly acting like I'm GonNa list nearby speeches it's nice and it's not just people just go on and on and on and on and on and on and on on and you're like I'm not I can do that. I'm going to be quick although I don't have to because it's a special award and they don't they don't play me off. I mean I don't have to end hit all because it's a special award. But they said they were gonNA give me a sign at twenty five minutes. But that's for my reference just to see where I was but I could go on. I'm not I'm going to keep it quick. I was born in New Orleans in one thousand nine hundred fifty eight January twenty six. Dr Swanson delivered me at eight forty three in the morning a rainy rainy and not I mean Louisiana Hannah heavy rain. My parents drove me home in a Buick. Buick could have been a Ford or Chrysler at. I think it was a buick. The point is they brought me home into car and before I knew it I had a successful Sitcom and I came out and then I lost that Sitcom and then. I got another Sitcom in a lost that Sitcom to and then. I got to do something that I'd never been able to do before. And that is make my own whiskey and after that I gotTa talk show and I was able to be myself and it was seventeen years ago ago and I feel like you've all really gotten to know me over the past seventeen years I am an open book and I couldn't have done it without my husband. Mark you are my Roth. Thank you for supporting me through this phrasing journey. I know it wasn't easy for you or the kids. Rubert and Fiona go to bed. I love you. That's funny because they're in college now the point. Is You all well now me and obviously you're else. He wouldn't have laughed at all that I feel like we all think we know someone. There's a connection when we watched someone on on TV for as long as we are on TV. And that's what it was. Like for me with Carol Burnett I. I felt like I knew her. I felt like she showed us who she was. Every week. She was larger than life. He was counted on her to make us feel good and she delivered every single week. She never let us down. She was hilarious and all the sketches that she did when she did the. Qa with the audience. She was just genuine anyone and personal and I always felt like she was speaking to me when at the end of the show every time she polder ear I knew she was saying it's okay. I'm gay too. The television vision. Television inspired every influenced everything that I am today. Lucille Ball Mary Tyler. More Marlo Thomas. Dick Van Dyke Bob Newhart Mannix. There's a little bit of all of them in me. That doesn't sound right but you know what I'm saying. All of everyone to do is make people feel good and laugh and there is no oh greater feeling than when someone tells me that. I've made their day better with my show or that help them get through a sickness or hard time in their lives but the real power of television for me is that not that people watch my show but people watch my show and then they're inspired to go out and do the same thing in their own lives they make people laugh or be kind or to help someone that's less fortunate than themselves and that is the power of television and I'm so so grateful to be a part of it. Thank you so much everybody. So here's here's what I will say. Those of us in this room have been very fortunate in that Ellen has hosted the Oscars the the emmys We have we have won a number of daytime emmys people's choice awards. We've been to the grammys. What I'm saying is we've been to a lot of awards unfortunate fortunate I? I know I know where you're going. I don't know if you do I think I do. I've never felt less in place. Then I did going to the golden the power. I guess when you were in a theater you don't really see who's in front of you behind you. But somehow with the way the tables were set up on us being in the very very very back and more specific being in the back but just generally good view of the kitchen. Yeah just in general I just felt like Oh my God there are are stars here later. Here's an I don't belong near any of here's the thing about the Golden Globes so the Golden Globes. The the ceremony itself is held in a fairly small ballroom at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Yup and the room is then packed with the biggest movie. The stars you end the biggest television stars you and then throw into that some music people. Their music awards is we. Don't forget the ten foot roundtables and the majority of this and it is the toughest ticket in town to get. Yes and it is everybody in that room. Is Somebody really except for us. We'll tell you lift your eyes. Leo Leo Brad Pitt. Beyond Murphy beyond our scale or spelling just yeah crazy. Martin Scorsese at the same table with Nero. And Al Pacino Joe pesci agent and Kevin in an ill fitting tuxedo Scarlett Johansson scarf just a very nice hello from Scarlett Johansson in the ladies room the Golden Globe. We have celebrities. I don't know who she thought. Yeah I was but I think she she was. She was like Saif senior face somewhere else and I was like well we have. We have a lot of celebrities on the show. It's just that they were all concentrated in one area of four tables that made it or five tables made it overwhelming with Tom. Hanks all and you go through an hour and a half security to get their heels impact. How you know that there are more important than us because if you go to the daytime emmys you can pretty much walk in Komo Open door either way I thought the highlight of the night was our host? Our boss Armenta religion. She was she was wonderful. Fold to see the old clips of her like she's you know she's lived a life man. Yeah like before. We all came into her life. She she was doing. I also really happy for Tom. Hanks Really Gig big award. I was happy for Tommy. It was good to sign the night. Like I mentioned the big round too. Many get hurt here. No No we both get hurt Allen stable right next door to Taylor swift stable in order to get to Ellen tell her what a great job she did and I had two. Jimmy are way past Taylor Swift. who was seated right? Her dress took up every square space in about an eight cubic foot diameter. Yeah no it was Taylor swift a neither. I was only only looking at the dress because I was like. I don't WanNa step on this dress. I stepped on Jimmy through. I did front facing Taylor so I saw her face. Look at me step step on her dress. Andy was in front of me and he's stepped on address because my legs were a bit longer so he went over. The two thirds of the train was so much. Can't you couldn't do that. It was like it was going to happen. Yeah single person must have. It was the only way to get through so funny. I welcome Mat if you wanted to get one. And then here's the thing that Ellen had a lovely time that night right. She had a real she really. She went out to parties. She had a really great time. Here's a bit of her monologue from the next day. Happy New Year. My resolution was to Carol Burnett Award and I did it the first week I got my resolution. All settled tiny bit tired. Today I gotTa Tell You I know it's Tuesday for you guys but on Sunday night not only went to the Golden Globes but I went out afterwards and I don't go to parties usually at all but it's a big night and there are a lot of parties and so I went to not one with two parties and oh boy guess how late I stayed out. I just want you to guess. How late do you think the globe started five to three hour? Show goes to eight then you have to travel to the parties and all that. Keep that in mind I was. I was at home in bed by ten thirty yes. This was tiring. I'll tell you that this who is really tight. I'm I'M GONNA sit down usually stand up but I'm GonNa sit down right now. I'm thank you I sorry. I can't stand up anymore. I'm tired it was a fun night. My friend and Kate McKinnon. It presented the award to me. She is so incredible. I love her. So the if you did not see her speech before she presented the award an I barely remember it so. Let's all watch it together. The Carol Burnett award is given to someone who like its namesake. Carol Burnett has given US decades cades of laughter tears and a new sense of what's possible so I would like to read a list of things that tonight's recipient ellen. Degeneres has personally personally given me and some of these are spiritual and some of them are pieces of clothing. I got to keep after doing impressions of her on her talk. Show a roadmap for a way to be funny. That is grounded in an expression of joy. Two pairs of Stan Smith Smith sneakers. That's one of the close ones a desire to bring everyone together by laughing about the things that we have in common. My best collared shirts a sense of self. I have to. I have to explain that one more in in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven when Ellen Sitcom was at the height of its popularity. I was in my mother spaceman lifting weights in front of the Mirror and thinking and my gary and I was still on and that's a very scary thing to suddenly know about yourself. It's sort of like doing twenty three and me and discovering offering that you have alien DNA and the only thing that made it less scary with seeing Ellen on TV. She risked her entire life life and her entire career in order to tell the truth and she suffered greatly for it of course attitudes change but only because brave people like ellen jump into the fire to make them change and if I hadn't seen her on TV I would've thought I could never be on TV. They don't let Lgbtq people on TV. And more than that. I would have gone on and thinking that I was an alien and that may be didn't even have a right to be here. So thank you Ellen for giving me the shot the good life and thank you also for the the sweater with the picture of the baby goat on it well. So here's the other really cool thing so. She brought her award in to work on Monday so we the Golden Globes for Sunday brought her award into work on Monday and she let everybody hold the award that was really she pass it around. She passed it around the room of all the awards. She's wanted was absolutely the heaviest as Andy said it was girthy. It had real weight. His tiny little. It wasn't yeah. She then brought to the control room. Everyone in the control room got to brag about it. Well she she was proud out of it. We know that about everybody got a chance. It was nice pictures with the. Yeah yeah it was really it was really she was. It's very similar about how meaningful it was to us that she had one yes And then of course Kate McKinnon her talking about beyond say sitting that close to be on so when she came on our show to talk about what happened. Oh my gosh. We pull up the archive clip of that. Do we have it. It's a Dvr and we have let me tell you that the super we have it on nothing within a building let me hit play by. What was your first time at the Globes to right? Yes us now. That's quite a time to be your first time there. I mean the table that we were at while. You're there you are. You are to me. You know everything and then Porsche everything. And then we had Carol Burnett American legend everything and then there was also beyond saying Jay z at the table which I mean the king and Queen of America. They are there. They were unbelievably gracious. But my sister and I found out that we were going to be at their table started panicking and making a list of like. Well what can we say. We live in one bedroom from apartments in New York City. What can we say we do use hellofresh? Do what kind of milk do you like to drink. And so but my sister went right over and has this balls of steel and just was great and beyond so nice and I was just such a I just pretended I had something on my pants. And it was sort of I I love. UK McKinnon. Thank you your speaking captured. Exactly how I felt about Alabama's watching that same episodes love you. How old were you when that aired imus among freshmen in College L. K.? Got US Graduate High School. Yeah the amount of people who were affected by that. And there's only one person who I love more than Kate McKinnon. That's Michael Jordan Jordan. I know he's not everything. When you look at his body healthy multi body the acting bodies ridiculous his social conscience just love every single thing about him? He's amazing and Eboni have probably known of Michael Jordan long before you have that's true. Where'd you learn? Oh Friday night I remember when he was on there and somebody said he was on a soap opera to what's he like a child actor Mares Story. I'm sorry I'm just saying that. They're repeating Friday night lights. On some channel on television they are and it popped up on my dvr and so for the last couple of nights. I've watched old episodes of Friday Night Lights and Michael Jordan. Yeah is in the episode where I fell so in love with Connie Britton. Oh my God you really love her. It's a really good show and I love when Michael Bey was here. He mentioned what several celebrities I think. Feel and he's is brave enough to say the only ellen gets him to admit things yes that he would never say anywhere else. So what was the name the prom photos. We had We had A High School Prom photo of Michael Jordan and he said they were just friends. Ellen really wanted to get to the bottom of what the relationship Jason ship was up. And here's Michael Jordan trying to answer the questions you. There's a picture that popped up on the Internet of you at your Prom now did you. Do you have fond memories of match and who wish.

Then Trump in this podcast. They're trying to influence handy. They're trying to get you in there. So these aren't real my gosh, this is going to be fun to watch. Now. We'll see how Andy suddenly starts thinking the Russians. This is fascinating never thought of it until I never thought look at our radio talk about lily Tomlin, and Jane lily Tomlin, and Jane Fonda, I love them so much when I was in high school lily Tomlin was on Broadway in a show called appearing nightly, and she was had a one woman show on Broadway. And it was unbelievable. It was fantastic. And I knew her from Laffin, and I knew her from that, and she's do Letterman which Letterman 'cause she used to do Letterman. Yeah. She used to do Letterman, and it's so much fun to see she and Jane Fonda on grace and Franky. And this was they have all these young viewers. I think are just so your nephew TB Mary. Really? Yeah. But just so everyone knows Mary's nephew works with Nancy Pelosi. Yeah. And is pretty high up in that. Tell you a little self Mary's, political bent. Yes. So she every time you see Nancy Pelosi on the news like walking from one meeting to another. There's Mary's nephew, which I think is very cool. But that's not what we were saying. So anyway, young people love this Franken, grace grace and grace and Franky everyone. I know who started watching it as Debbie have watched. So my daughter, Emily, who's twenty four fell in love with Grayson, Frankie and kept telling me to watch it. And like I do with most of the people. I love the most I did not listen already for an extended period of time. And then I when I truly ran out of things to watch. I thought let me try this grace and Franky and two episodes, and I began wondering why the hell I never listened to people when they read. I love it so much. We've seen every episode where I think the new one starts out will came out last Friday drop last Friday, and they're just amazing together on on grace and Franky for whatever reason I didn't have such huge expectations of them together on the Ellen show. I didn't think they were going to be grace and Franky. I thought they're going to be lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda, which they were and their chemistry together. They're just like endurable higher. Larry's both boldly. Boldly hasn't been here. Five times. She hasn't been here. Ten times she'd never been here before. Does not want sane. I know lily Tomlin had never been here. She give Ellen her Mark Twain prize rise. That's right. And it's just it was so fun to see how they are really sharp and funny. She is timing that they have for each. I just wanted. I just wanna road trip with them. They just make me laugh lily, just I dunno lily, just just she is the perfect complement to. And Jane, just like has amazing comic timing has a little slow burn has a little look has a little thing. And then we did questions. Right. I don't think we call it. We didn't call it burning questions for them. But we we ask them questions. And the question we asked was describe each other in one word while I love, and it was quite a moment. Take a listen. That would really tell them when Jane Fonda and we're gonna play a question game in honor of the seasons. Grayson, Frankie, it's called lily. Jane, don't give I apologized for that. That's the name of the game. And I didn't I didn't write it. But that's the theme was the it's the theme. You know, you get old and then who gives them right, right, right? The team this season is I don't give right. So I'm gonna hit a button and random questions where baba and you have to both answer. Honestly with the first thing that comes to mind. All right. Your best Celebi burst celebrity crush Tony Curtis. Okay. Dorothy malone. Okay. Started early. Something everyone loves, but you hate mashed potatoes. I love him. I was wrong. I don't know. Why said that? Jane cooked, bananas of any kind. All right. Do you want to redo wreck yourself? Now, you've lost the Hispanic audience. I'm not running for. All right. I'm going to say, I hate cotton balls. I don't know who likes him. But I hate Cotton Bowl. I don't even want to say the word. Okay. Your go-to excuse to get out of something. I'm old. Try again. This bribe each other in one word adroit alias. Totally. I liked to do a love scene with lamb Nason. Or Mike Shelton. Yellen Shelton Blake Shelton lily. Oh. Dorothy malone. She died. Me. I'm not gonna say I know enough of that going around anyway. I have a hard time answering this. Okay. Because honestly, I I love Jane. I can't it's hard for me to think of say that's the right. I know that's the right answer. Because you're telling me, it's the right in. Ways. All right. The new season of grace and Franky is available on Netflix. This friday. We'll be right back. So the questions was called, Jane and lily, don't give a. Which is the theme of their show this season. And and and there and true if they were to form they didn't give and they haven't for a long time. So that's really fun and lily. I'm sure it's still on your DVR. So you should really watch the whole interview. It's it's they were they were two or three acts, and they were fantastic and lily eighty years old is in jeans and a Ruth, Bader Ginsburg shirts. Yeah. Shirt with a jacket over it and rose colored glasses looking just as cool as all get out. I mean, and Jane who had on just an insanely beautiful suit was regretting that she wasn't wearing a tee shirt as cool as lily's. We'd love them. We do. And you know, Mary when I'm when I made a you're gonna come put some flowers at my head. So. I'm gonna wheel you to wherever you want to go.

Washington phrases rushing alo- get by and there's no collusion. Now show fun costume for Ellen. She was this year she was drunk bachelorette and Kevin can talk about. This is our sixteen season sixteen season. Avella in dressing up on Halloween seems easy to just come up with the costume. And put it on Ellen turns out, there's a little more work. Why don't you tell us about the always talked about this one Kev? Do do you? Do we all remember? Yeah. The first Halloween the first season of the Ellen show. When we it was her first year. It's a talk show host came in. And we said I now we're gonna pitch you on Halloween costume for the Halloween show. And she went, oh, no, no. I don't I don't I don't do that. I don't trust. Let's not a thing. I'm going to be doing. Later of all the talk show conventions. She did not think that that was one that she was going to to she didn't about any of them. Yeah. Right. Doesn't Ellen wanted to be. I used to say to her. There are some things that we do talk shows that are, you know, necessary. And she said, well, we're going to revisit all of them. What was she the first season? She was she was docked feels either Dr Phil or Scarlett O'Hara. Now, she was Dr Phil season. She wasn't a bag of money Oprah where the bag that was wonda. Okay. L in her first year was Dr Phil Kevin. How does how come about? How do we? When do we start talking about it? And I mean we start talking about really early probably August. And then we kind of serious towards number in the we have a very large creative staff. Yes. Puts huge list together of ideas. This year was a little tricky. Because all the scary things seem to be political. Yeah, we were trying to think of a costume that could just like everyone could agree on and have fun with. We then narrow the list down to probably what we pitch out anything twelve. Maybe ten twelve ideas from one hundred. Yeah. And she goes down. Yes. No. Maybe. No. No. Yes. So then we get down to two or three. We sketch. Them up. And then we have an insanely talented wardrobe team who puts together off those sketches a couple ideas for Ellen in. She gets sucked into the bachelor every single year rise not to she swears that she's never gonna want. Always what leave the finalists were drunk bachelorette or twitches Black Panther and her as white cougar the caress. I think be a. Trying to be a an older. Yes. But she's so smart, she she instantaneously out. Loud can weigh the pros and cons of each costume and go. Yeah, I'm gonna be I'm gonna be a bachelor contestant, and I'm going to be drunk. And I think she sparked to the notion of the fun that she could have as drunk bachelorette. Doesn't change your mind doesn't go character. I think yes. Like that is only had a character who she could be that episode. The Halloween show is still on your DVR, you should write while they should want. You should watch the purpose of this cast is to get people to then go rewatch, you know, the show either on their db ours or to Ellen to well, it seems that your purposes to establish yourself as the host. Well, we don't know. And be like, you're working on plans. You don't know how much longer going to do this show? It's been sixteen seasons. And I'd like to do it for think she's going to do it for line. Now. I know, but when I wanna seamlessly go from that to being a top podcast or in this country and possibly the world top podcasts are in this country. Yeah. So I'm trying to think of what happens. So we're the Supremes Diana Ross. You said it not me. But. Good way to look at Wayne. Yes. Back to hell. Loyd. So obviously, you can't have a bachelorette without a bachelor. So our talent team, but together list of people that we thought it'd be fun to come out and be the person that Ellen is falling in love with. This was terrific and who better than Milo Ventimiglia, God, really, so handsome. He came out as the bachelor and could not have been funnier and the audience could not have been more excited, and it was a surprise. And I love that moment. When a surprise celebrity comes out, and there's like light applause for about a second and a half. And then it hits them. I know that guy my Milo and about three seconds in. They just lose their. Oh my gosh. This is he's there. I'm here. Yeah. And then the audience just loses their minds. Happy everybody. You all look wonderful Ellen hallowing shows being preempted for special episodes of the bachelor. Any bachelor fans here. If you don't know the show is what would happen. If the hunger games was sponsored by Don Julio tequila. Is Halloween is still going to be a scary show. That's what Ellen would want. So when I meet the new bachelor, I'm gonna scare the pants off of him. Here's a really scary thing since this is the bachelor this show is going to be six hours long. So, you know. You know?

Savannah Guthrie and The Cast of Will and Grace

"Hi, it's Ellen Degeneres. Welcome to my podcast. We're gonna listen to some of the best moments from the show, and it's going to be hosted by four executive producers that I love happy listening. Hi, it's Mary on today's episode of Ellen on the go. Savannah Guthrie from the today, show talks about playing tennis with her super crush Roger Federer, and we have the cast of willing grace celebrating their twentieth anniversary together. Welcome Tandy and friends. I'm Mandy. I'm Ed glavin Kevin, Leman. I love Owen generous. I fell in love with her a little bit more this week after. Grew start out as a very fun interview. I don't think any of us new wigs Aki where it would end up normal savannah, Guthrie appearance. So this is the big new. So the last time you were here you, we found out that you have a huge crush on Roger Federer, and so we gave you a cardboard cutout to put in your office. Where do you keep that by the way while you sent it to me that x. which I don't know how that happened because it's life-sized. It's like six, two. So we have a house upstate and we have a bar in the basement. We call the bomb shelter and Roger is the bartender. Oh, it's really funny because he's the basement. So it's kind of dark and people visit and they're like, yeah, it's kinda creepy. It is kind of creepy. He's shirtless. Yeah. So it's, yeah, and actually Jenna Bush came over and had a couple of too many, and she broke Rogers arm on. Yeah, we taped him back together because I can give you another one. No, no. We have. A lot of. Since then you've met him you've played unless did. I mean it's crazy. Well, first of all, like the fact that you talked about my obsession with Roger, really put it into the mainstream, and so it got back to Roger. And so his people called me and said, would you like to play in this celebrity tennis tournament with him, which I hadn't even met him? To course, I was like, yes, one thing. I'm not very good at tennis and I was I was hoping his agent would be like, oh, well, that's all right. It's for charity. You don't need to be good. He was like, oh, well, my colleague will and he can scout you on Monday. I had to go play tennis like I had to audition. Oh, wow. Yeah. And I hadn't played since tennis camp so, but I guess whatever I made it and decided to do it, and then I was really bad at it. Well, it's really, I mean, anyone is going to be bad. Where are you saying? The skirt. Okay. And that's Bill game. Yeah. And I, it was I kept missing the ball, and they were miked and Rogers like savannah. Oh. Stop looking at me and start looking at the ball. Totally humiliated. What who was this scout that got you through though? I know exactly. He needs to be fired, and Bill Gates was was playing with Roger. Yes. And Bill Berry, a good tennis players. He going extremely competitive and had actually watched in my game tapes. Like I posted a few practice sessions on Instagram, and then it turned out Bill had seen them, and then he wanted to play together before the match. And I'm like, hey, guys, spoiler alert I'm terrible. Yeah. Well, I know we see that. If you're a horrible. Yeah, but it was. I mean, I got to meet Roger was crazy. I saw him and he was I was only had been in makeup for like eight or nine hours that's and then he was. He was really nice. He's like, oh, I feel like I know you. Oh, that's so sweet. So he lived up to your expectations? Yes, and exceeded them. I would like him to be on the show. So if this will get back to you, Roger, I would like you to be on the show. I could be there too. If you went and just just saying. Now we, I kind of know him. No, yes, sure. Yeah. Okay. Then you should be here for. All right. All right. So let's talk about the today. Show you and hold us seem to be really like the chemistry is great. You're having a good time having the best time. I mean, we, yeah, we just click and it's just, you know, it was so unexpected and obviously was a hard situation when it first happened and we are so happy to have each other. Yeah, and I always say like, we don't eat sunshine. We have Hoda and she is the best partner and I just love working with her and everyone loves Hoda. Right. The thing about holidays like everyone, everyone, normal. All of us. We love Hoda celebrities, love Hoda, like she her phone. She has everyone's text message like, I'm like, what are you? Is that Kelly Clarkson texting you right now? Just everybody's know what my mom's like. I have book club tonight, and her text is like from Sandra Bullock. It's amazing. Wow, we'll maybe she asks the publicist for the number something you should ask. You know, I think that the people are like, what are your so great. You probably text with Hoda I don't. Well. Maybe she hasn't asked me for my number. I would text with. I feel like celebrities like her so much. They're like here my digits. Oh, what never happens will it will soon you just hang in there if you will. And then savannah sticks around to do an interview for the today show because she doesn't get out here a lot. And again is Kevin said it started out lots of fun. They were having a good time and then sort of the the moment that we're all in came up with the confirmation hearings of bread cabin and women telling their stories of women coming out and finally feeling confident and strong to tell their stories more and more. You had like a a lot of side hustles because you also have this house flipping thing that you import view. It's not really how slipping we buy a house and we love it and we stay in it. And then we get a little bored because we like a different style or different aesthetic. And I love furniture and I love decorating. So if I find something else and we make money, it turns out that why not move to another house. That's flipping. Okay. But it's not intentional. I was reading an interview. You did recently he, you said that you knew when you were young that you would be famous or the fame was important to you to achieve? Yeah. No, I didn't think I'd be famous, but my parents were very very, I would say almost obsessed with a lot of people are interested in fame, but we didn't have money and we never owned a home. We lived in an apartment so we would look at houses every Sunday. We'd go to open houses and we could never afford a house is a kid. I thought that was going to be my house. And now I just by as many houses as I can. You know. I wonder how you felt about fame now because we don't know each other all that well, but I always think that when I see you in person, there's a certain shyness about you. I'm not kind of a, you know, need attention person. I guess I'm shy, but I think what I think about fame now is people start out in this business. They start out trying to get love or approval. It doesn't fill a void. I mean, you have to fill that yourself. You have to know you're good enough and you're in a solid person without someone else's approval. This year, Ellen has found new purpose through a foundation created in her name, a sixtieth birthday gift from Porsche Rossy, her wife of ten years when we first got together, she said, what would you do if you didn't? If you weren't in this business? And I said, I would like to work with endangered species. And specifically, I realized Diane Fossey when I was a little girl. So we're now building the Ellen Degeneres campus with the Diane Fossey foundation. She said that. You often would remark at home doing enough. Am I doing enough giving away tens of millions of dollars through this show and through your good fortune? Yeah, you still feel like that sometimes. Oh yeah. We try to help as many people as we can, but there are a lot of people, but you know, so many people need help and I can only do so much. You know, right now my platform is this show, and I hope that it says an escape for people from what's going on in the world. But sometimes the heart wrenching issues of the day come to her doorstep like this week with actress, busy Phillips last week with the cavenaugh hearings. I saw Dr Ford take, and you know, I write about my own experience being raped at age fourteen, I was a fifteen, and I had something happened to me. You have talked about your own experience. With abuse, and I just wondered how you feel this moment is impacting our country and you personally well, as as a victim of sexual abuse, I am furious at at people who don't believe it and who say, how do you not remember exactly what day it was? Or you know you don't remember those things. What you remember is what happened to you and where you were and how you feel. That's what you remember. And I was fifteen years old, you know, and I was going to go into the details, doesn't matter. But you know, we are really vulnerable at that age and we trust and we, and then when you are violated, you don't know what to do and you don't want to you don't want to say anything because first of all, you just wondering, how could you know how did this happen? How stupid. You know, I mean, all these things that you think you could have controlled and you can. I think anybody who's gone through it right now is watching this so angry because you know how dare you not believe us. And so many women are now looking at their past and realizing, you know that wasn't okay? Yeah. Do you think that this will add up to something meaningful? I hope so. I mean, really, you just imagine if Dr Ford would've would've been that angry on the stand and would have talked back to somebody questioning or women aren't supposed to do that, but he can get away with it because he was angry. She was angry too she but she she controlled herself and was was hurt, and but she's not allowed to do that because we're not allowed to do that. I hopeful in this moment I'm hopeful, but then I see things that just continue to happen. You know, I see. I see Trump and his now mocking Dr. Ford, where is the place? I don't remember how many years ago was it? I don't know. I don't like to talk about him and this is not political. It really isn't. It's got nothing to do with being Republican or democrat or anything. It's just about about respect in someone who is the leader of our country who is mocking someone who was abused. You don't do that. You don't mock somebody. I'm angry. I'm sorry. Having. So we do something good and make people smile is not a small contribution right now. Thanks. Well, I hope I hope. Anything before I stopped doing this show someday. I hope that I'm empowering women. We just have to not be quiet anymore. Savannah and Ellen hit a very emotional exchange. It made me love her more because she for so many women right now in for so much of what she's trying to do with the show. She tries to make this as an escape, and she tries to not let those things creep into her life, and she tries to ignore them. And for once she really got vulnerable, she opened up about something. She's hurt inside in this Dr. Ford testimony open to all up and she confronted something that she's been dealing with. And then after the interview ended, she stayed and talked to the audience through tears. It was just an amazing feeling having these four hundred people on her side. It was just a very real moment that, well, we don't have all the time. It's not a moment that in sixteen years, Ellen hasn't shared about this moment publicly on our show. Right? We were aware of it. No. You were aware of it? She she's written about it. I believe they're book. Yes, it's it's out there in the world, but she hasn't really talked about it. And women are finally talking about things that they have just thought that they've needed to deal with privately for a long time. And in the same way that Dr Ford didn't wanna come forward, but felt she needed to come forward. I think that that act by Dr Ford has inspired other people to share their stories and this week Ellen was inspired to share hers. I think in a way that surprised her Andy, I see a lot of people on Twitter asking you how you can sleep at night. I don't sleep great. Not Kevin. Keeps telling me about these bedsheets. Brooklyn dot com ones. Yeah, I love those. Tell me about them. It's the fastest growing betting brand in the world over twenty thousand five star reviews. It's crazy. You know that incredible feeling that fancy hotel. She have. I do. You know you like to stay in a hotel? Well, Brooklyn was started by a husband and wife who didn't think it should be so difficult and expensive to get those sheets at home. Kevin just takes them from the hotels. So that's how he gets them home with on. I'm sure you did. Brooklyn mission is to bring five star hotel quality luxury sheets to everyday life without the luxury markup which could be as high as three hundred percent. Here's how they do it.

They did a show for a long time. They took a little break and then somebody had the idea. Let's bring it back. Yes, they're back popular. We've been together for sixteen years. I'm not exactly. That's right. The one of you all alone over here, the four of you. So you were, you were here on our second season two thousand four, and I just want to remind us all how young we were in two thousand four. When you were here. Oh, my God look good Sean. In the road company of mash. Ellen, look, I love your hair. I, what are we all wearing. I don't know. Remember that game that we played. It looks like we all just woke up and did a show. Thing we were writing little. We were racing, I've every of it at all. We fed him either. I'm just in long. What's your name, Ellen? That's right. Yes. Now I remember. Yes. That's the show you're on.

And they saying audience take cake. Oh, that's nice. That's really nice. What did they all get you. We'll talk about that later. Who's always give Debra cash. And I gave her something. You couldn't put a price on advice, but that's why she looks so gorgeous. That's right. Yeah, right. All right. So you were at. Did you get a star on the walk of fame next to Eric's? Right. We are the opposite ever. Got one. The opposite ever. Got one last one last week. Thank you. They're next to each other. But more importantly, they're right down from the shake shack. So my favorite restaurants now, do y'all have a star in my mind? I do. Based on our in the galaxy, they leave space for the four of you can read together. I like being buried together. I actually did like I teared up when I heard that we were right next to each other. I was like, we're gonna be together forever. Oh, that's so sweet. It's really ruled on by. Oh, that must be the government. You think that's gonna. So it's been twenty years since the show started. And when I say that to you, first of all, we've known each other longer, I think since one thousand nine hundred eighty six, we've known each other long, long time raising. But what does that mean to you when this this is twenty years ago that you started? Well, when we started, yeah, when we started the show, I was living in an apartment in West Hollywood, two blocks from yours, right? And I had two hundred dollars to my name and I remember one time going to the war all like you know, dollar close from the retail giant store. I remember you dressing badly. Yeah. Yes. Thank you. Thank you. I had two hundred dollars loan through that two hundred. So then you're completely broke. We all want that same situation where you were you kind of like at that point. Where you didn't have any money loaded. You've always. This. On it. I guess start I note in stay. Yes. That's where you got the two hundred. Debra was on when the pilot I got picked up and I was like, oh my God. She had a show before this and it was an hour drama of the p. right. Fray. And I was like, oh my gosh, I'm working with actors who has show already. We shot the pilot. She was technically in second position. We were one hundred percent sure that even if the pilot picked up that we'd have her because prey headfirst picks and I'll never forget pilot pilot in front of a live audience and shine made his first entrance said his first line and the audience went bananas. They went crazy. Go to. But I mean, you know, just instantaneously like nobody. They'd never seen him before. They didn't. Legitimately, so funny and brilliant. Forget it. Felt the same way about the three. And there's been a law of diminishing returns everything. Now. Right, right. Gotta keep me real. You can get a lot more of that and a lot more of Ellen on the Ellen Degeneres show weekdays caffeine. We talked last week about how your sweater. Yeah, yeah, you sweat laws and it was and it wasn't issue, and it was something that forced us to keep Kevin away from Ellen lot of the time. Really, we didn't really talk about deodorant here until we saw Kevin's problem. I never used to have to think about it. I would just wipe it and go, but that didn't seem to work for, you know, no, it's news every day, but there's actually a safer alternative, and I want everybody to know about it. It's an aluminum, free deodorant called Campari. Now, do you use camparis coconut deodorant? Obviously it gets the boys parties. Coconut deodorant is aluminum free, and it doesn't suck. Campari is currently running a campaign called the truth stinks. It's about aluminum, all the reasons that you do not want it on you in your dealer and around your body.

And it works at fights over with a plant based active such as sage oil and coconut oil outlast your longest days. This is camparis number one selling product. They can barely keep in stock act now.

They told Ellen that they have this pre show ritual where they dance, and then some of it occurs in front of the studio audience. It's the show is recorded in front of a live studio audience and and then, yeah, they basically bump and grind on. So what are the characters up to in. In five words or less start with Iraq. No, you don't have to do words less. So really. Will is, will leaves. He was teaching was no. He was a being Grace's lawyer, and now he is going to teach law. 'cause that's a Larry is. That sounds last gets a little. It's gay. Welcome back. Kotter. Eventually waiting for that. Grace is running for political office? Yes. I'm doing the five words, no good dirty rotten scoundrel. Mostly Jack is dating a guy in the got engaged and he's planning the winning exciting. Can't wait to that wedding. Yummy to fun. All right. Do you do any kind of pre show ritual because that would be probably fun to see what y'all do. We kind of do what you do. We always kind of just soon as the audiences we meet them. We start dancing, then we start gyrating. When they. Wouldn't they can't this show? They cast four hunters. Yeah, they're all we do is hump each other all day long. There you go. See it never. It's just we can't help it. Front worth it right there just to see the dancing, the show much have a ritual, very four. The show very theater like because we, you know, we all have theater background. So Deb started at from the pilot on that. We all get together and do a little prayer. Still the prayer. I'm single show and nobody else. And we're not right now because we're taking it to be funny. And David trimmer on the show now to David Schwimmer's my bowl. He's my special friend friend vessel. That's wonderful. And you have many special friends? I do. Oh, yes. Being one of them. No, but it just seems like you. Don't know. No. Yeah, no, no. Don't start. Starting rumors and people are going to believe down. Oh. Oh. Our pre show ritual is we like to let Ellen make steel like we're running late. Freakshow ritual. We don't. We don't so much have a producing heavy do a meeting right before the show. I lead a meeting that tells everybody what we're gonna do. The audience starts dancing and Mary has a pre meeting ritual. What's that? She gets on a half apple folks on the other side of the row in the control room. And then she turns on a little light so she can see, and then she shuffles about five hundred pages of paper, calls it down to about three and then starts the meeting. Anybody wanna ask me, why do that? Why do you do them every Kef for asking? So we have a lot of paper all day long. We get handed paper all day long. And what I do is I hold onto the paper throughout the day because sometimes Ellen will want to refer back to an earlier version has happened if something that we've done and I haven't with me, I have access been there. She's knows that I saw the morning, Mary always has. Thank you Kevin. And so then when we get our final script, here's what I know. I don't need those pieces of paper. Here's the other thing I know sounds like this like make something like that make make Ed crazy. I love them make Ed crazy beyond crazy, like lifting. I love more than that someone opening a cellophane bag, right. Right. Ed, what have you done to try to deal with that? I've removed the cellophane bags from the control, but what wave the control room and get them at the control is for work. It's not for eating. He's had. Gender. Once you got hypnotized, the sign, the sound of people like eating, which I have to the side of digging in bags, but particularly people crunching when they axe to me is worse to me styrofoam. What if what, if someone, what if someone outside your office was to tape up a box always happens every day. They take the packing tape and it's just in the well, let's be fair about why they're doing it outside your office when we when we set up our offices. So I think we know why you asked. Office because they know it annoys me. You wanted to wanted to you? Yes, I wanted the PA's near us because you know, we have a lot of needs that we delegate a lot to them and we and we also think we want them sort of near the center of action because that's how they learn. We promote from within constantly here and we got them close to us. They're in a bullpen. How'd that? I wasn't the best idea. Mary. It led to a year of hypnosis that doesn't fully worked. We've hired some really good as this year though. Yeah, we have. We. Lucky all the years, but this year is particularly, I really enjoy listening who don't know what a PA is a production assistant, and it's usually the entry level job at most television. Most entertainment shows jobs are sound engineer. Yeah, Ryan? Yeah. Who's here in the room with us started as an started as a as a PA. And there's a lot of running you physically run because we're taping the show. It's as live and Motta was a runner, and he was very fit and he ran very, very great. Great out here, but he's got great physique as really Larry's go ver tones. Really good. It's got a lovely is got a lovely wife. Not too much terrific. Kids point was that we found really good PA's.

Literally, turn the podcast off there. We're gonna beg you. Did you become someone tweet? I just wanted to mention this. I saw someone tweet to all four of us either today or yesterday said it really upsets me that your podcast isn't on a YouTube channel. 'cause I would love to see you guys. Doing this podcast. We have a producer Daniel he's in the room with us. And and you know, we have mentioned to him several times that we should probably have a camera on the podcast. I can only assume he thinks that one of us is not attractive enough. No, we're so we were just thinking. I think he might think we're all not attractive. He said you guys got good faces for podcasts. Yeah. I've seen him husband. That's definitely true. Well, why don't we try one? And see if there's a reaction turns out, the reason Daniela's and video videotaping us because nobody is interested in it. He's received official word. No one wants to see hard past. I don't believe it. I believe we should put up one on the Ellen YouTube channel and Ellen tube. And see what people say, you know. Let's do it. Let's make sure we have a couple of days notice. So Kevin can have his spanked John have some makeup. But yeah, I just thought that was cool that people listening. Mr. judging other people's bodies. That's what I have to do before, you judge mind.

And we'll end to do anything and willing to do anything. She even showed up to get into a box and hide and scare Blake Shelton. Yep. She recently got divorced. And she said that she's not interested in dating. But what she is interested in is trying new things every month to new things a month to new things a month. So we helped her out one of the things she wanted to do was really scare someone on the Ellen Degeneres show, and that's not for the faint of heart. You have to get a no tiny box. You have to be ready to hear accu- from you know, from Ed what time the perfect time is to do the scare and because he has a microphone into your little ear. And when he says go, you better bust out at that very moment. And so it's stressful. So she gets so she does it she arrives. And she arrives in a beautiful outfit beautiful wardrobe all Lambda up for television appearance. And then and then climbs into this box hides in the dark in this box in a table, that's really really really tiny. And she's an IFP and ear. So she can hear me and the whole time Blake is out there. He he is the first person I've ever seen do this. He just got so comfortable, and he's a big, dude. He just put his arm on top of the table that ended up being the box that she was hiding it just kept dropping his arm onto it was driving her mad. Yes. And we couldn't scare them until he moves his hand off. That whole thing would have been right. Yeah. Catastrophe. But God bless Ellen. She figures it all out and she gets him to get his hand off that box. And then. Here's that moment when Blake Shelton was talking to Ellen. And and something happens. All right. So speaking of things that make you happy. I have a question for you. And this is serious. I want you to pay attention. Okay. You got serious. Okay. All right. Gwen Stefani, good. What I wanna know is. Are you gonna marry her? That's one. You know? So hot in there. He's heading on the top of the big. This. I was going to head. Julia had to get his arm up the whole time his arm was on it. And I was like how do I get his arm off? That's why I had to lean over this way. God bless you. They made about the fact that just crapped my pants. Blake was a good sport about it. He was great said he was he was scared thinking what he was started doesn't start jumpy. Yeah.

But I have never seen one episode of game of thrones. Never neither have I I haven't either I've not either. My wife obsessed really loved it while she didn't start with it. But then she started one night. And I was like, no, I'm not into it. And she watched on our computer after I would fall asleep and like in two weeks. She watched every episode like stayed up to like four in the morning. She became obsessed with it and could not wait for this season. But so she so excited and now it's their final season and one of the actors John Bradley who plays Sam well Carly came on the show, Ellen loves the show. He's he's just so we're clear I've I watched the first three seasons of game of thrones. That I haven't watched the rest of it because Debbie, my wife has an hasn't been dying to watch it. So I wanna watch it when Debbie's ready to watch it. But this guy's been on season one. I mean, he's been. He's been on this show the entire time. It's a miracle. He's still alive because sooner or later everyone dies on. Yeah. And he was amazing. Yeah. First appearance on our talk show hasn't done a lot of talk shows period. This was his first acting role in his life, and what a sweet fun funny guy. I should say, you know, our he's a code producer now and our senior talent executive Corey palate. He he he watches game of thrones. So he knows these you know, he knows just how epic. I mean, I, you know, if you there's a blog I follow online deadline deadline Hollywood. And I read it every day after game of thrones airs, just because I enjoy a good rating story and game of thrones as juggernaut, and they're just aren't many left in this world of streaming and a million different options. I mean, it has almost eighteen million viewers just Sunday night. The second episode of this last season of game of games and people were calling it. The most tweeted about television episode of anything in history. I it, you know, it's big deal when the people who don't watch game of thrones like myself here through. Social media here through the news here through just talk around the office that something insanely huge happened on the show that it was a major major major event. So that even as I don't watch it. I know that it was up, right? And last Sunday night was epic. And then we get to have John Bradley on a just a couple of days later. So it was very very exciting for all the game of thrones people. Okay. So that was actually from the week before. But the the one that aired Sunday was man. Oh, man. That was stressful to watch. It's pretty stressful. Right. Yeah. Stressful for me too. Yeah. The only seen any of it. Rarely I sold it for the first time on Sunday. Yeah. We had a screening the Chinese the Hollywood. And you know, the reaction that the episode got was just overwhelming. Yeah. It was. Yeah. Because when people are in the dark, and they were the laws group of people they feel kind of on this. So they don't mind being super responsive very very vocal screaming, lots of screaming gas gasping had my girlfriend next to me. I'm I'm not tell anything about the episode. And I still have the nail marks. Doesn't hold fingernails in my off. Well, you probably can't tell her anything that you shoot. Right. Do you? Sometimes are you able to know I think that was she's a twos fun of the show. He doesn't wanna know. No. She wants to experience those moments the way everybody now were you? I don't think you should've survived. Do you? I mean, I don't know how you survived that. There was there was people die in all around. He when somehow you survived the entire thing on didn't think I was gonna survive because you you're always going to look in looking at the script for the episode kind of worn. I open. Yeah. You're so you're so nervous. And people say, oh, some some Deutsch sums to important to beloved. You know, you just think don't you watch this show? Have you never seen this show before kind of important and beloved doesn't matter to no, no, nobody sacred. Nobody's going to say from game of thrones. And, you know, people say things like, okay. My thrones is one of those shows where all your favorite characters die. I'm like what does that say about me? Right. That's true. But now do you stick around to the do, you know, how it ends will? I full I knew it was going to end. And we definitely saw an end in could I can tell you that I read it in of you with showroom. There's not long ago when they said the think they know how he's gonna wind. So, you know, actors paranoia instantly. Yes, does that mean that you don't know? I don't know what I know. Right is true. 'cause he may be just saying that to make you think you don't know. But you may know, I'm militantly. No. But you may not gonna know the, I know, I know I know right? I'm with you. Let's talk about million dollar may shall we? Love. It's a riot million. Yeah. You never know what you're going to get or how much you're going to get how you're gonna get it. And I know so I don't know if this is to inside. But we we have this partnership with WalMart Ellen has a brand that sells at WalMart. We got into the one we got into business with WalMart a couple of years ago when we wanted to find more ways and more vendors to help us help people who were in need, not just people people schools, like all kinds of times in ways that we wanted to help people who could use a leg up and who felt like us like they deserved it like they were inspiring in some way, and they and they pretty much agreed with no strings attached. And one of the things they did a couple years ago was we gave an entire class of students high school students at summit academy. I believe in Brooklyn New York full four year scholarships to state any state university of New York. Correct. That that was like to the tune of about three million dollars. And it was just such an amazing event. And it was so impactful, but WalMart reached out to us this year and said, it'd be fun to do something big where we're helpful where we you know, sort of pay it forward to the tune of a million dollars. If you guys have the right idea, if you think you have the right idea, let us know 'cause we'd love to. Part of it, which is really amazing offer that, you know, thank shows shows, you don't get right. So we come up with the idea for million dollar may where we take people who are doing good things, you know, in their hometowns and their communities and their families, and such and we give them a chance to win an immense amount of money and even losing you still win something, but you could win an incredible amount of money. So yesterday or last week we had this family on? I I will I will just use the first name of the of the central woman in the store. Your name was cheering Jiang came from Kenya. She emigrated from Kenya. To america. She lives in south bend, Indiana with a host family her parents are back in Kenya. Her brother lives in South Africa. She hasn't seen any of them in over a year one of them. She hasn't seen in two years, and we fly and she learned English partly by watching the Ellen show. She watched out on YouTube back in Kenya. So we fly her to LA car HOGAN produce the segment for us. We fly her to L A. Secretly fly her parents and her brother in from two different parts of Africa and fake alive shot with surprise her with a live shot for parents in Africa. They're actually backstage and then surprise her with her parents. It was absolutely phenomenal. And then after all that was said and done we played a game for million dollar may which we absolutely were not gonna let them lose. Yet. Taylor say it was terrific and Carla did a great job producing the segments. What made you move to the United States? So I moved here about five years ago with the grace as my host family, and I moved here for higher education and. Sorry. That I'm here. But it's been amazing. And it's been really hard for my family back in Kenya. Because of honestly done every single thing that they have from selling land to taking loans boring money to be able to, you know, pay my school fees. But also just make sure that I'm comfortable fill in Kenya. And you work how many jobs do you work here? Okay. So I work one fulltime job my nine to five I'm admissions counselor at Holy Cross college right for then I babysit for to family I wash people's have like wash people's cars, I clean their houses, an Uber driver. And then I also teach English to international students and some of the DACA students in the south bend area. But that's all that's all you do. That's incredible. All right and your family members. So it's your who's who's there? Okay. So it's me, my my older brother Churchill, and then my my dad, and my mom, and they're all three in Kenya. My brothers in South Africa. Okay. My parents are in Kenya. High say, okay. Well, I kind of they help a lot of families there too. Right. Yes. So my parents really want to give back to the community because they feel like they've been really blessed? And so my parents are helping about ten plus kids from our family, but also like from the village that they live in. So they're paying for their school fees like uniforms books, all that fun stuff. That is incredible. Yes. All right. Well. We. We set this is I can't believe that we were able to do this. We sent a camera crew to Kenya and South Africa. And so let's see if we can. All right. Hi, everybody. This is the clearest picture we've ever had. This is crazy. All right. So it's been a while. Right. How long has it been since you've seen Chang? And and you you to your. That she. That's that's what I mean. All right. Well, we still have your brother. What's your name? My brothers. He's my name. My brother's name is Churchill I'm getting I'm getting. The back here, right? Needed to get the controls open the door because we have to fix this open the doors. So one of the thing that we did this week was we found some someone on our staff. I can't remember who might have been Chris coochie Tracey gold. There was a a young girl. Ten year old girl named caroliina plays violin beautifully. She plays it here. Locally at thirsty prominent Santa Monica street with her, you know, collecting money, and if not been here if you come to LA, and you haven't been to third street promenade in Santa Monica, you should check it out. 'cause you're steps from the ocean, which is cool and thirsty. Prominence. Cool, and there are often street performers who are really talent. Yeah. I believe somebody Andy grammer. That's who it is. It was Andy grammer Andy grammer was discovered on thirty from number of people who've made it to America's got talent also who were discovered and this girl is ten playing the violin. Which is just it's just she's got she's more than just playing the violin. She's got moves. She's got attitude when she's playing like pokes Malone cheese, playing popular music. So we thought the least we could do is bring here to play for our audience. Take a listen. This is a ten year old violinist who spends every weekend performing on the streets of Santa Monica. Her videos have been viewed over two hundred fifty million times online performing sunflower by post Malone. Please welcome caroliina. Carolina. What is your name? Sankoh percent go.
