| Another Book on the Way From Ellen Degeneres|
|NYtimes.com reports: "The book publishing industry may be in a slump, but not when it comes to celebrity authors. The comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has signed a deal with Grand Central Publishing, part of the Hachette Book Group, to write her third book, “a look at her life through her humor,” the publisher said on Sunday. The book is scheduled for publication in the fall. “I found that between my talk show, ‘American Idol’ and my late-night blogging, I didn’t have enough ways to express myself,” Ms. DeGeneres said in a statement. Her first two books were best sellers." |

Monday, June 7
Everyone has fun when Ellen is on vacation -- including you! She’s taking the show to Universal Orlando Resort and has lots of plans. She brought her favorite game, Know or Go, and added an exciting new twist -- today’s contestants better know how to swim! Then, Ellen will get the entire Universal City Walk moving when USHER performs. He’ll sing a song from his CD, “Raymond v. Raymond,” before sitting down to chat with Ellen. She’ll get to hear all about his two adorable boys. And, if there's one person who needs a vacation, it’s SHARON OSBOURNE! She worked hard for Donald Trump on “The Apprentice,” and today she’s not holding back her opinions! Also, PAIGE MILES might not have won “American Idol,” but she won a trip to Orlando, where she’ll chat with Ellen and perform!
Tuesday, June 8
It’s Ellen’s second day at Universal Orlando Resort, and she’s having a blast! Ellen’s been having fun around the park, and she’ll show you everything she’s been up to. Here to heat things up is the sexy MARIO LOPEZ. Ellen knows the best way to cool him off from the hot Orlando sun -- get him wet! He’s busy hosting both “Extra” and “America’s Best Dance Crew,” and he brought the dance crew SALTARE with him. Joining in on all the fun is one of Ellen’s favorite bands, RASCAL FLATTS. They have a lot to celebrate -- this summer they'll mark 10 years together! Everyone will be up and dancing when they perform two of their hit songs.
Wednesday, June 9
Ellen is lucky to have SHEMAR MOORE on the show today! Last summer, he was hit by a car while on his bike and could have been killed! Fortunately, he’s all healed and back to work on “Criminal Minds.” Shemar is looking better than ever, which means Ellen will keep trying to get his shirt off for you! Then, the beautiful EMILY DESCHANEL is stopping by. Ellen will have the champagne ready -- Emily’s show “Bones” celebrated 100 episodes, and Emily will share all the excitement today. Also, you’ve learned the best recipes from Ellen’s personal chef, ROBERTO MARTIN. Now he’s back to teach us another great meal that you’ll love! And three of Ellen’s audience members better have a story that Ellen loves -- or else they’re getting dropped when Ellen plays another round of the hilarious Mo’ or Go!
Thursday, June 10
Just like Ellen, MARTIN LAWRENCE started as a stand-up comedian. Now he’s starring in huge movies like “Death at a Funeral.” The hilarious guy is stopping by to tell Ellen all about it. He’s not just a funny man, he’s a family man with three beautiful daughters. And he’s also got a great heart -- he bought a car for the teacher who encouraged him to be a comedian! Then, DIDI BENAMI was voted off “American Idol,” but she’s not done yet. She’s stopping by to chat with Ellen about her elimination and give one great performance! Also, Ellen has another batch of hilarious web videos that you won’t want to miss!
Friday, June 11
EVA LONGORIA PARKER
The last time EVA LONGORIA PARKER was here, almost four years ago, she told Ellen that “Desperate Housewives” was going to be her last television show. Fortunately for us, the show keeps going -- and she’s back today! Quite a bit has changed for Eva since then; she’s now married to basketball player Tony Parker. Also, a little while ago, Ellen showed this video of the Irish singing family CRYSTAL SWING and it got quite the reaction! Now they’re here today, and hopefully they brought the tequila!

Tuesday, June 1
A few months ago, a school in Mississippi cancelled their school prom because CONSTANCE McMILLEN wanted to bring her girlfriend. She stood up for her right to bring a same-sex date, and today she’s here to tell Ellen everything that’s happened. Then, the competition was tough on “American Idol” this season, and LACEY BROWN knows that first-hand. She’s stopping by to share the experience and sing one more time.

He’ll also share the latest on his show, “Private Practice.” Plus, CHELSEA HANDLER is sure to answer Ellen’s questions honestly -- and then some!

Wednesday, June 2
He’s suave, he’s sexy, and he’s on the show -- PIERCE BROSNAN is visiting Ellen today. He’s more than just a good looking guy -- he’s also quite the family man, and even won a Young Hollywood Award for being a Hollywood role model! Then, after 500,000 joined a Facebook group begging for it, BETTY WHITE hosted “Saturday Night Live!” It’s been almost four years since she’s been here, so Betty and Ellen have a lot of catching up to do! Also, Ellen has been introducing you to great musicians from all across the world, and today she invited MELANIE FIONA to perform her Grammy-nominated song, “It Kills Me.” And Ellen is still giving away trips to Universal Orlando Resort.

Thursday, June 3
Ellen’s friend KRISTIN CHENOWETH is so funny and incredibly talented. She’s an amazing actress, and now she’s returning to the Broadway stage in the musical “Promises, Promises.» Ellen feels she helped Kristin get there, since Kristin starred in “Ellen: The Musical”! Or it may have been her role in “Wicked.” Kristin always seems to have a new story about her hair -- last time she told Ellen how she accidentally lit it on fire! Ellen will have the fire extinguisher ready before the interview. Then, THE BIRD AND THE BEE have had two successful albums and their music has been featured in a variety of movies and television shows. Now, with their new album, they’re paying tribute to the classic group Hall & Oates and will perform one of their greatest hits today.
Friday, June 4
It’s hard to believe that GERARD BUTLER could be any sexier, but he’s become even hotter since his last time on the show! If looks aren’t enough for you, how about the fact that he saved a stranger’s life? He once saved a boy from drowning! When he’s not saving lives, he’s hard at work... he was just in two movies; “The Bounty Hunter” and “How to Train Your Dragon,” but he made sure to find time to visit Ellen! Plus, Ellen has been introducing you to new music all month long and she has another great artist on the show today. DIANE BIRCH is here to perform “Valentino” from her album “Bible Belt.”
