  • Ellen DeGeneris is Christophobic

    Burrell will not appear on her show after the gospel singer made homophobic comments. Burrell referred to "the perverted homosexual spirit" during a sermon at a church in Houston, Texas. She had been due to sing with Pharrell Williams on The Ellen DeGeneres Show later this week. But the talk show host, who is a well-known advocate of gay rights, tweeted : "For those asking, Kim Burrell will not be appearing on my show." 'No excuses' DeGeneres had been asked by fans to cancel Burrell's planned appearance and an online petition was launched. In a video published after the sermon,...

    Comedian Ellen DeGeneres was praised by the US president for her influence on the gay rights movement as she received the country's highest civilian honour. Celebrities including Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro and Michael Jordan were also among the 21 recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Barack Obama said it was easy to forget the risk Ellen De Generes took to come out as gay in 1997. He said her bravery helped "push our country in the direction of justice". "It's easy to forget now, when we've come so far... just how much courage was required for Ellen to...
  • Video of 'Hillary' dancing with debate questioner humiliates Clinton (click the video! funny!)

    The Ellen DeGeneres show featured a well produced video that appeared to show Hillary Clinton dancing with Ken Bone, the odd-looking questioner from the last debate. If you listen to the soundtrack, you will hear the audience laughing hysterically. But I have to wonder if they are laughing with Mrs. Clinton or at her. Curiously, the Ellen show disabled comments for the video, even as it got over 700,000 views. I think people were laughing at the video because while the intent was clearly to humanize Hillary (and, incidentally, perhaps Ken Bone?), it accentuated the fact that Mrs. Clinton is...

    During Sunday's presidential debate at Washington University in St. Louis, Donald Trump appeared to loom over Hillary Clinton while she addressed the moderators and audience. And like the millions of people who watched the political slugfest, Clinton took notice. In fact, during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Friday, Clinton didn't mince words about her GOP rival's behavior, saying he "stalked" her on stage while she addressed the moderators and audience. "Because of the revelation of the public video, and everything that came out on 'Access Hollywood,' you know, he was really all wrought up, and you could...

    Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres defended herself on Tuesday after some claimed that a humorous Usain Bolt tweet sent out from her social media accounts a day earlier was racist. *snip* DeGeneres’ popular Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts often feature funny images that have been altered to include her. On Monday, her accounts sent out a picture of her riding on Bolt’s back during Sunday’s 100 meter semifinal with the suggestion she’d like to use the Jamaican sprinter’s word-class speed to get her errands done faster.

    A Georgia woman has her t** in a ringer over a joke Ellen DeGeneres told on her show ... in fact she's so upset she's suing the talk show host for allegedly besmirching her good name. In a segment called "What's Wrong with These Signs?" Ellen showed a real estate sign advertising a broker named Titi Pierce. Ellen assumed -- as we would -- it was pronounced "titty," but Titi says, "as grammar dictates," it's pronounced "Tee Tee." Pierce says in her lawsuit ... no one has ever made such an error in her 35 years on planet Earth. As...

    BURBANK, Calif. (AP) - Someone call the fire department. It's about to get hot at the White House. President Barack Obama, who is spending another Valentine's Day apart from his wife, Michelle, did the next best thing short of celebrating the lovers' holiday with her: On Friday's broadcast of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," the president recited a love poem he says he had planned to deliver to the first lady in person.

A 13-episode animated TV series will be adapted from the classic 1960 children’s book, continuing the adventures of some of its characters. Cindy Holland, Netflix’s VP of original content, channeled Dr. Seuss’ famous meter in announcing the deal:

    One gallon of jet fuel burned creates about 19 pounds of C02. A 747 burns about 25,000 pounds of fuel per hour. A round trip from Washington DC to LA would take about 11- 11 1/2 hours. That comes to about 287,000 pounds of fuel. And that results in the production of about 5,462,500 pounds of CO2. A 757 burns about 6,000 pounds of jet fuel per hour. A similar round trip to LA would burn about 69,000 pounds of fuel and create about 1,310,000 pounds of CO2. Barack Obama and Michelle Obama both traveled to Los Angeles on the...

    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...

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. The first lady recently unveiled updated nutrition standards...

    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...
