  • Principal gave bullied kids a way to wash clothes at school, now Ellen gave him $50K

    Akbar Cook, principal of West Side High School in Newark, sat across from Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show Friday, and couldn’t believe he was there. “I’m just so happy, I’m so nervous that I’m on the Ellen Show," he said, smiling, his hands fidgeting. “This is amazing. Wow." It’s understandable, Cook. She’s big, but you have done something special to earn the right to be there, too. I wrote a column about Cook last month because he had washing machines installed at his school this summer to deter bullying and embarrassment for his students, who didn’t want anyone to...
  • Candace Owens calls out ‘The Ellen Show’ producers who ‘stalked and insulted’ her repeatedly

    While conservative commentator Candace Owens may not be surprised by liberal backlash against her, she certainly doesn’t intend to remain silent when she is targeted. The Turning Point USA communications director unloaded Sunday on producers of the Ellen Show who had “stalked and insulted” her repeatedly. Owens blasted Ellen DeGeneres, the star and host of the show, for the hypocrisy as she is a “woman who regularly champions bullying as one of her biggest societal concerns.” Owens concluded with a final shot at “all @TheEllenShow producers,” who “lay claim to the moral high ground” while hurling attacks at those who...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), in an appearance on The Ellen Show on Thursday, joked about killing President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, or Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Host Ellen DeGeneres asked Harris, “If you had to be stuck on an elevator with either President Trump, Mike Pence, or Jeff Sessions, who would it be?” The California senator paused before answering the question. “Does one of us have to come out alive?” she responded, cracking up at her own joke. She did not answer the original question.
  • Billionaire Bill Gates has no idea how commoners spend their money

    02/22/2018 10:33:47 AM PST · by nickcarraway · 43 replies
    It’s been awhile since billionaire Bill Gates had to grocery shop among us plebs, so you’ll forgive him if he’s a little disconnected from the price of common items. The Microsoft co-founder appeared on “Ellen” yesterday, where the daytime host had him guessing costs of supermarket sundries like Rice-a-Roni, pizza rolls and forbidden snack-du-jour Tide Pods. SNIP Gates pegged Rice-a-Roni at $5 (it’s $1). He thought a container of Tide Pods cost $4. Please, it’s $19.97. After guessing an exorbitantly high cost for Totino’s Pizza Rolls, the audience took pity on him and pointed him to a more on-the-nose answer...

    RUSH: A great See, I Told You So about Michelle Obama, who’s back. Moochelle (My Belle) was on Ellen DeGeneres show saying she has once again lost all hope. No! No, no. “All we have is hope.” “All we have is hope.” It used to be “all we need is love.” But now “all we have is hope.” That’s how bad things are. Mrs. Obama, do you ever ask yourself a question: If your husband and you and your administration were so appreciated and so loved and so widely supported, how the hell did Hillary lose? Hmm? If the nation...

    Ellen DeGeneres has said Kim 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...

    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...

    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.

    Disney Pixar’s upcoming “Finding Nemo” sequel features a transgender stingray, lead voice actress Ellen DeGeneres says. “There’s a stingray that’s becoming sting-Rhonda, so there’s a trans sting in the movie,” Ms. DeGeneres said in an interview with USA Today. That’s not the only nod to the LGBT community being speculated upon in “Finding Dory,” a spinoff of the 2003 underwater odyssey, which opens in theaters Friday. Fans spotted what appears to be a lesbian couple in one of the movie’s trailers. Director Andrew Stanton would not confirm the rumor to USA Today, but said “there is no right or wrong...

News' Will Marfuggi yesterday while she was promoting Finding Dory, the sequel to her 2003 box office hit Finding Nemo. "I mean, he's welcome to come if he wants to come on. I don't think I see that happening. I don't know that he would do that. But I wouldn't say no if he wanted to be on." Trump has been a guest on her show five times,...

    A draft media policy memo requested by Hillary Clinton recommended that the State Department utilize “Specialty Media” to get its foreign policy message across, a newly released State Department email reveals. The 2009 memo urged Clinton to use her star power and singled out shows including Oprah, Ellen, The View, and others to be used to “amplify and deliver messages that advance policymaking.” The memo stated that Ellen DeGeneres is “a big supporter of Hillary Clinton and is willing to use her platform to help promote the agenda of the new Secretary of State."

    JCPenney, faced with unexpected light sales in mid-April, slashed payroll, froze overtime and took other drastic cost-cutting steps in an attempt to protect its bottom line, The Post has learned. As the end of its first fiscal quarter approached, the mid-priced department store told store managers to take the emergency measures because the chain faced “an expense challenge,” according to an internal memo obtained by The Post. “We have an expense challenge for the month of April and are asking all stores to do their fair share by closely monitoring all expenses,” the memo said. Employees were stunned when their...

    President Barack Obama may have made a super cool touch down in Los Angeles on Thursday, but Californians were cursing his visit as his motorcade caused traffic that was even worse than usual. Making a rare appearance in sunglasses, Obama stepped off Air Force One in a pair of suave shades, and was ferried straight from the airport to the Warner Bros. studios, where Ellen DeGeneres's show is filmed. The two pre-recorded the interview in the afternoon, which will air on Friday. It is the first time a sitting president has appeared on the day-time talk show. As Obama geared...

    Before Tuesday’s taping with Hillary Rodham Clinton, the executive producers of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” said that the former first lady had never danced in her previous appearances with Ms. DeGeneres and that they didn’t expect her to when she taped her latest sit-down. But during a commercial break, Ms. DeGeneres’s resident D.J. got Mrs. Clinton clapping her hands and swaying her hips to Ariana Grande. Pink and Amy Schumer joined Ms. DeGeneres and Mrs. Clinton onstage, and they all hugged and waved to a crowd of thousands overflowing around the Rockefeller Center ice skating rink, where Ms. DeGeneres is...

    Looking to bounce back from a politically tough summer, Clinton sat down with the charismatic television host before a live audience in Rockefeller Center at dusk. The interview was part substance, part fun, all meant to cast Clinton as spontaneous and likeable. Clinton told the largely female audience that "it is just a reality that (women) are held to a higher, different double standard" and implored the young women in the audience to "just forge ahead" when met with adversity because of their gender.
