    Betty DeGeneres, 82, is a gay rights campaigner and the mother of the world's most famous lesbian, not necessarily in that order. Ellen DeGeneres has a TV audience of at least 4 million viewers per episode in the US alone and is here in Australia to film segments for her show. Betty is here, too, and addressed a PFLAG meeting at Westmead last Saturday. PFLAG is a worldwide organisation providing information and support to the families and friends of gay and lesbians.* Betty says it was hard enough for Ellen to come out once, at age 20, to her family...

    J.C. Penney (JCP) shares tumbled Wednesday after the retailer reported a much wider-than-expected first-quarter loss, suspended its dividend and saw weakness across all core metrics. In an apparent rebuke to new CEO Ron Johnson's strategy to change the company's focus from discounts to everyday low prices, total sales fell 20% while same-store sales declined 19% and gross margins fell to 37.6% from 40.5% as foot traffic in the stores dropped 10%. "Our marketing isn't doing the work," Johnson said in a conference call. "We've got to get our pricing across. Coupons were a drug, they really drove traffic. [Customers] need...

    (CBS News) J.C. Penney is trying to rebuild its customer base with help from a new spokeswoman, Ellen DeGeneres. But a group called One Million Moms is accusing the company of "jumping on the pro-gay bandwagon." DeGeneres responded to the group on her TV show Wednesday, saying, "I'm happy about (being the spokesperson) J.C. Penney is happy about it. But there's this group called One Million Moms that is not happy about it. And normally I try not to pay attention to my haters, but this time I'd like to talk about it because my haters are my motivators. This...

    Michelle Obama cranks out 25 push-ups on 'Ellen DeGeneres Show'By Adele Hampton - 02/02/12 12:33 PM ET Michelle Obama proved she isn't just talk when it comes to exercise and wellness, busting out 25 push-ups on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Wednesday. "How many was that?" DeGeneres asked the audience. "I just stopped," Obama said after the crowd yelled out a resounding number of 25 push-ups. Obama appeared on the show, set to air Thursday, to promote her “Let’s Move!” campaign, which encourages daily exercise and good eating habits to combat childhood obesity.

    Recently JC Penney announced that comedian Ellen Degeneres will be the company's new spokesperson. Funny that JC Penney thinks hiring an open homosexual spokesperson will help their business when most of their customers are traditional families. More sales will be lost than gained unless they replace their spokesperson quickly. Unless JC Penney decides to be neutral in the culture war then their brand transformation will be unsuccessful. Their marketing strategy is to help families shop and receive a good value for their money. Degeneres is not a true representation of the type of families that shop at their store. The...

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton named Ellen DeGeneres a “special envoy” for global AIDS awareness during a speech on Tuesday at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. DeGeneres, a lesbian comedian who hosts NBC’s Ellen DeGeneres Show, is in a same-sex marriage with actress Portia de Rossi. DeGeneres will “use her celebrity platform to raise awareness about the global fight against AIDS,” according to a State Department press release. The release also quoted from a letter Clinton sent to DeGeneres and from Degeneres's response. “By lending us your energy, compassion, and star power to serve as our Special...

    With her husband facing electoral oblivion at next week's mid-terms, Michelle Obama is clearly prepared to do anything she can to help. Whether showing off her dance moves on Ellen was a politically astute gimmick, however, remains to be seen. The First Lady appeared on the daytime chat show just hours after her husband went on The Jon Stewart Show in a desperate attempt to woo younger voters. The President has been attacked for appearing on a comparatively lightweight show hosted by a comedian. At one point Stewart even called him 'dude', the first time word has been used...

    Presidential hopeful Sen. John McCain, long opposed to gay marriage and even civil unions, appeared on Thursday’s "The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” saying that he disagrees with the California decision, but wishes her all the best as she makes plans to walk down the aisle with girlfriend, actress Portia de Rossi. DeGeneres tried to sway McCain’s opinion by explaining to the senator that she views the issue in the same way as when blacks and women didn’t have the right to vote. “Women just got the right to vote in 1920, and blacks didn’t have the right to vote until 1870,”...

    We can't tell if this is a barometer of how the fall general election might feel, but John McCain today compliments Barack Obama on his political acumen in a televised interview on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," a curious appearance for a candidate still trying to gather support from the Republican Party's social conservative base. Host Ellen DeGeneres asks McCain about Obama's contention that "a vote for you is basically a vote for" a third George W. Bush term. Says McCain: Good strategy. "I think it's a very intelligent campaign tactic. Obviously the president's popularity and approval ratings are low. So...

The wedding, announced shortly after the California Supreme Court lifted the state's ban on gay marriage, was to take place next month. Sources say, among other things, there were heated arguments between the couple over who would wear the white dress...

On her show's Web site, DeGeneres described McCain as "a true American hero" and promised that "we'll get some straight talk from the senator from Arizona," playing off the name of the McCain campaign bus, the Straight Talk Express. "I want to find out if it's really true that he once had a vodka drinking contest with (Sen.) Hillary (Rodham Clinton)," DeGeneres wrote. McCain's appearance is scheduled to air Thursday.

Today we get the scoop, so to speak, on DUmmie reaction to the latest dog in the news, in this THREAD, "What's this about Ellen DeGeneres and a dog?" As you might guess, even though Ms. Degenerate danced around the rules by giving the mutt away, the DUmmies are mostly on her side against the mean-spirited adoption agency.

    Hillary Clinton's Freudian slip was showing yesterday in California when she told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres she's running for President in 2008, as she reported a record fund-raising haul. But it was all a misunderstanding - at least the 2008 part, Clinton said. The comedian stumped Clinton during an interview on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" discussing the upcoming Senate election. DeGeneres switched topics midstream and asked, "So you are preparing for 2008?" The fast-talking junior senator fired back, "I am," and then thought about it for a moment and stammered, "No, no, no. I am preparing for 2006." Smiling...

    Protesters can claim one more case where protesting has proven effective. The Hollywood remake of the comedy “Oh God!” planned for this summer will not be going anywhere soon. Last fall, Hollywood announced with some fanfare the news that Jerry Weintraub Productions would be filming the remake which portrays God as a wise-cracking cranky individual full of defects and imperfections. As if that were not bad enough, the so-called Supreme Being was to be played by the avowed lesbian talk show host Ellen DeGeneres! That was before thousands of protest flyers went out nationwide. Prior to the production of this...

Oh, the drama. The new couple have VH1's extravaganza Big in '04 to thank for it all. While they first met some nine months ago at a photo shoot, the...
