|I'm just now recovering from our big Mother's Day Show. The audience was filled with first-time pregnant moms. I was so excited to give away all kinds of great gifts, my water broke! It was a great way to end a jam-packed week. Both SIMON COWELL and RYAN SEACREST were here. I'm gonna find one of them a date - or maybe I'll just find one girl and they can share. |
Also, the sexiest man alive came by -- no, Richard Simmons was here for Mardi Gras. HUGH JACKMAN was here! If my body looked like his, I'd never wear clothes… on second thought, if my body looked like his, that'd be really weird.
Plus, the two stars from this weekend's biggest movie, "STAR TREK," were here. CHRIS PINE and ZACHARY QUINTO. I think Darth Vader turns out to be their father.
And, hold on to your light saber, next week is gonna be huge. KELLY CLARKSON will be here! Plus, LADY GAGA and PINK!! And, we're kicking off our DRIVE ME CRAZY GAME WEEK. Someone's gonna win a CAR! Not to mention a whole bunch of other great prizes. You can win too - go to our website to find out how!
Which reminds me, I've got to go… Portia and I are playing blindfolded musical chairs and I took off my blindfold -- she's still wandering around on the lawn...
See ya, Ellen

|Well, it’s official… you can’t drink a thousand shots of tequila! I wanted to do something special for my 1,000th show, but I lost track somewhere between six and eight shots. Instead, I marked the momentous occasion with a huge 1,000th show celebration! |
I thank you all a thousand times for watching over the past six years. And I’ve been thanking some of you individually with our $1,000 A DAY IN MAY giveaways.
They say, “It’s better to give than to receive,” but they also say, “The proof is in the pudding”… and I’ve never found anything in my pudding. But I can tell you I’ve been having a lot of fun with my Big Stimulus Package!
Oh, and did I mention that Oprah popped in? Well, she did. I’m gonna be on the cover of the December issue of “O” magazine. Anyway, it’s no big deal. A lot of people have been on the cover with Oprah. Oh, wait a minute -- only the First Lady of the United States! Let’s all raise our shot glasses to the December ‘09 issue of “O” magazine -- the greatest-selling issue of all time!!
You’re not gonna want to miss next week’s shows; my friends SIMON COWELL and RYAN SEACREST are gonna be here! They do a little show called, “American Idol,” maybe you’ve heard of it. And HUGH JACKMAN is bringing over his impossibly toned body. Also, I’ll be giving away more money all week long!
And don’t stop there -- this week’s Mother’s Day show is gonna be the mother of all Mother’s Day shows! The audience will be filled with first-time pregnant moms. I better start boiling water.
See ya, Ellen

| Ellen DeGeneres is the top gay celebrity|
|Text by starpulse.com: |
Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has been named the most powerful gay celebrity by an American magazine.
The comedienne, who is married to actress Portia De Rossi, came second to politician Barney Frank but was the top showbiz star on the list.
Actress Jodie Foster and comic Rosie O'Donnell were also honored in the third annual Top 50 rundown by the publication Out, coming 36th and 42nd respectively.
Milk director Gus Van Sant was 14th, Sex And The City writer Michael Patrick King came 29th, and fashion designers Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford were handed 15th and 38th places in the lineup.
The list is determined by political clout, cultural resonance, individual wealth and current personal profile.

|If my math is correct, we're coming up on our 1,000th show… which makes this my 7,439th message to you. See, kids? Your math teachers were right. You’re gonna use math all through your life. |
We are having a big celebration for our 1,000th show, and we'll be celebrating all week long by looking back at some of my favorite moments! And there were a lot of moments to celebrate just this past week…
It started off right when I got to surprise my New Zealand followers. We called them up and they went to so crazy, we had to surprise them on the show.
Also, you know how I hate gossip, so I went right to the source. Lindsay Lohan was here to tell us everything that was going on.
And, in his only daytime appearance, my friend, the amazing Prince was here! If I ever go back on the road, I’m gonna have a couch on stage behind me in case I get tired.
We also celebrated Earth Day. It's important to take care of our planet, and it's just as important to take care of each other.
This week we also kicked off our 1,000 Dollars a Day in May. Every day someone in our audience will win 1,000 dollars!
That's not the only exciting thing happening this week. The New Zealand kids will be back to give us their full report on all the places they wanted to see over the weekend, including Disneyland, Wal-Mart and a baseball game. They'll have a great time as long as they remember to drive on the right side of the road.
Also, Michael Douglas will be here on Wednesday and Ryan Reynolds will be here for our 999th show.
I guess you'll have to watch every day to see which show will have a funnier moment than this.
See ya next week... Ellen

| Ellen DeGeneres interviews Portia de Rossi|
|Text by afterellen.com (Sarah Warn):|
On The Ellen DeGeneres Show 16. March 2009, millions watched Ellen DeGeneres's much-touted interview with Portia de Rossi, star of the new ABC comedy Better Off Ted and the woman who "also happens to be my wife," as Ellen introduced her.
Ellen made Portia take off her shoes to show they were the same height ("That's the main reason I had you on the show, actually"), then announced it was their seven-month wedding anniversary and quizzed Portia on what it was like being married to her. Portia told stories about how no one knows who she is when they travel, because Ellen is so famous.
Then they talked about Better Off Ted, with Ellen making a funny point about Portia being drawn to play icy, insensitive characters, and Portia explaining she enjoys those roles because in real life she cares too much about what people think.
Ellen and Portia singing "I've Got You, Babe" together in the faux-bathroom.
