|Oh, what a week it has been. Singing, dancing, dunking, oh my! Harry Connick, Jr. tried his best to dunk our friend Zach. Let me say this about his dunking abilities -- he's a great piano player. Julia Louis Dreyfus stopped by. She's a liar. |
Actually, when I think about our week, it was filled with liars. Our writer -- and home wrecker -- Lauren Pomerantz was punished once again. And this time I got a professional to help me out. But I think Sheryl Crow wins the award for Best Dunk Tank Outfit. Don't believe me? How dare you.
On Tuesday, my new BFF Paris Hilton dropped by. We made a plan to go out clubbing one night. And we did something spectacular to try to get George Clooney out of his office. My other BFF who inspires me and is apparently inspired by my fashion sense stopped by. In fact, he inspired me to use his microphone.
Now, enough looking back. Let's look forward. And look who's headed right for us! Dennis Quaid, Queen Latifah, Lisa Kudrow, Kenny Chesney and Jesse McCartney. A little something for everyone.
And you'll never guess who gets in the dunk tank next. That, ladies and gentlemen, is called a "tease."
Oh, and how could I forget? We played one of the stupidest games of all time on the show. You can vote on whether or not we should ever play it again.
See ya next week... Ellen

|I'm typing this letter with one hand because I'm icing my arm. "Why?” you ask. And to that I say, "Thank you for asking. And I'll tell you why... because you asked so nicely.” I'm icing my arm because we really kicked off Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a bang... or a dunk. I've been throwing pink softballs at people all week. Hear me out. |
We had an entire audience filled with breast cancer survivors. We gave them a great surprise and then we unveiled our dunk tank. We're raising ten thousand dollars every time I dunk someone. So far, I've dunked two audience members, Jenny McCarthy, and Shemar Moore. And I get to do it all month long!
I also have a small headache. Steve Spangler came by with some science projects. He showed me an electric pickle, some disappearing ink, and he put me in a cloud.
And, my neck's a little sore from an owl landing on my head. My friend Jack Hanna brought over some animals. Amazing! And his toucan tried to eat my eyeballs. It's dangerous being a talk show host.
The good news is: I wasn't hurt when I got a surprise visit from Leonardo DiCaprio. That didn't hurt at all... am I right, ladies? He came by to premiere his "Vote PSA,” which I got to be a part of... Have you registered to vote yet? Go on now. Do it.
We've got another big, big week coming up. Huge, really. Kanye West is gonna be here! He'll show us the world premiere of his new video, plus, he's gonna tell us all about his crazy year of ups and downs, from winning Grammy Awards... to losing his mother.
Also next week -- Sheryl Crow, Christina Applegate, Paris Hilton, Mark Wahlberg and of course, I'll be dunking people all month long! Oh, I better find something else to ice my arm... these frozen peas are melting.
See ya next week... Ellen

|I'm calling this week: |
"Liars and Cheaters and Multitaskers... Oh my!"
First of all, this week I found out that one of my trusted writers, LAUREN POMERANTZ, is a LIAR! She told me she would rush the stage at the Emmy Awards and well, she didn't. So, I punished her. Then, and this wasn't surprising, I played a game with ALLISON JANNEY and she cheated again.
And as far as multitasking goes - that's my middle name. Ellen Multitasking DeGeneres. It's French. Anyway, this week I proved it. With the economy in bad shape and the state of the world the way it is, I've found that the best way to soothe your soul is with music.
-DOLLY PARTON came by and sang about Shinola.
-THE PCAT DOLLS sang and danced in outfits that could probably fit actual Pcats.
-KID ROCK kicked it with his whole band.
-And 8-year-old TIONE JOHNSON was here and sang for me. She's gonna rule the world one day.
Next week I've got some more music planned -- JOSHUA RADIN is gonna be here. He sang at our wedding. Also, JACK HANNA with some amazing animals, SUZANNE SOMERS (I don't think she's bringing any animals), JENNY MCCARTHY and JULIA LOUIS DREYFUS. Plus, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we'll have an entire audience filled with breast cancer survivors. And by George, one of these days we're gonna catch George Clooney or my name isn't Ellen Multitasking DeGeneres.
See ya next week... Ellen

|He took the bait! He took the bait! And by "he," of course, I mean George Clooney! And thanks to Kate Hudson, we're hot on his trail! He's not the only new neighbor I've made friends with. Here I am talking to Linda, the newsstand lady. |
I also made a big announcement this week. It's too private to write about here.
We played another round of my new favorite game, "Aw Snap!" By the way, you can play at home with some apples, a life vest and one of those bungee cords that your dad uses on top of the minivan. Play nice, kiddies.
If you survived that... then here's a little surprise that happened on the show.
We've got plenty more surprises coming up. Next week, the amazing Dolly Parton is gonna be here! (Talk about Clooney bait!) And my arch nemesis/good friend Allison Janney will stop by for another challenge. Also, blockbuster-maker, lady-killer, Indiana Joneser, Transformer -- Shia LaBeouf will be here. (That's French for "The Beouf.") We just learned together!
If you need me, I'll be on my couch watching the Emmys... can't wait to see ya next week... gotta run, my popcorn's ready.

|Well, the first week of Sexy Season Six is officially under my belt... or behind me... or, anyway... it's over. But it was a doozy!|
MICHELLE OBAMA stopped by and danced with me. Who would've thunk she was a Jonas Brothers fan? I don't really blame her - I'm a Jonas fan too.
Then, I showed everybody pictures and video of my wedding. My mama hadn't even seen them yet.
Then suddenly, all my guests were in bathing suits:
- Olympic Gold Medal Beach Volleyball players MISTY MAY TREANOR & KERRI WALSH
- PAM ANDERSON
- Olympic Gold Medal Swimmer - JASON LEZAK
- Even me!
I also showed a bunch of my summer vacation footage. We were on Merv Griffin's yacht, THE GRIFF. All I can say is, "Amazing!" And, thank you to everyone at Merv Griffin Enterprises.
It was the first time I'd seen a lot of the footage. I'm so glad I can share all of this with you. You all mean so much to me. I know I'm married now, but next to my wife, you're my best friends.
I know you'll all be watching next week when we celebrate Sexy Season Six -- Week Two! With: Kate Hudson, Meg Ryan, Betty White, Nelly... and so much more. Plus, I can't wait to play my new favorite game again -- if you missed it, take a look at AW SNAP!
See ya next week... Ellen
