I’m sure you’ve seen the above photo about 800 times by now. Ellen DeGeneres decided to take her hosting duties at last night’s ceremony to the next level by getting together some of the biggest names in Hollywood to take the ultimate selfie! We’ve got a little Jennifer Lawrence, some Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper holding the camera, Lupita Nyong’o and Angelina Jolie, Jared Leto struggling to fit in the frame, a little Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Lupita’s brother, Peter… it’s classic.
There’s not really much to say about this, other than that I really like this and everyone is so handsome/beautiful and that the Oscars seem like a nightmare that I would never attend because getting dressed up to that level is like, my worst nightmare. The end.

Ellen DeGeneres is bringing the gold lately. First she gave us “Mad Men Without Cigarettes“. Now she and wife Portia de Rossi are participating in what I hope will be a time-honored tradition: making fun of Kim and Kanye’s “Bound2″ music video. Seth Rogen and James Franco already did it, so now it’s Ellen and Portia’s turn. They spoofed the video for their Christmas card (above). Nice work, ladies! Sure beats the Kardashian Christmas card (of which Ellen joked, “It is real, I’ve been staring at it all day and I have still not found Waldo.”)

Ellen DeGeneres wanted to do something for The Great American Smokeout that happened yesterday (you know, a whole day of “let’s not smoke, America”) so she gave us Mad Men with a twist. Instead of smoking cigarettes, you’ll see Don Draper blowing noisemakers. You know, like those HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! things. It’s pretty funny.
Now let’s see Kate Moss without cigarettes. Ha ha, funny joke!

Yesssssss. Ellen DeGeneres made waves with Ellen back in the day when she came out on air – a bit of a revolutionary act, at the time – and while she’s been amazing on her talk show over the past decade, she’s now developing a new lesbian comedy with NBC. Finally!
Sixteen years after Ellen DeGeneres came out on her ABC sitcom, there may be another broadcast comedy with a lesbian lead. NBC has put in development a multi-camera comedy executive produced by DeGeneres. The untitled project, written/exec produced by openly gay comedy scribe Liz Feldman (2 Broke Girls), centers on a lesbian and her straight male best friend who get pregnant just as he meets and marries the love of his life. Warner Bros TV and DeGeneres’ studio-based A Very Good Production are producing, with AVGP’s Jeff Kleeman also exec producing. Feldman previously worked for two years on DeGeneres’ hit syndicated talk show and wrote for DeGeneres’ first stint as Oscar host. (She returns to Oscar duties on March 2).
I mean, it doesn’t sound like the most wonderfully groundbreaking series in the world, but any visibility for the community is a good thing. Some people of colour would be nice, as well. Plus, Ellen is awesome, so I’m on board with anything she’s working on.

Bethenny Frankel‘s talk show is going about as well as Kris Jenner‘s. Each had their own big name guest that they got by pulling strings. Kris got Kanye, by begging Kim
and/or threatening her life, and Bethenny got Justin Bieber by using Ellen DeGeneres. But then things started to go downhill. Here’s apparently what’s going on with Bethenny and Ellen, via The Stir:
Apparently, Bethenny’s new daytime show is doing, in a word, dismally. Ratings are so bad that Ellen DeGeneres, the talk show queen who gave Bethenny her show, has asked to have her name as removed from the show’s credits because she’s “embarrassed.” [...]
During Bethenny’s trial run, Ellen was able to pull some strings and, by the grace of God, get Justin Bieber on the show. But since her show has been picked up, Ellen and her booking agent, who reportedly promised to hook Bethenny up, haven’t been able to get a single big-name celeb on the show. The supposed reason? No one wants to make an appearance on a show hosted by a former Housewife. Ellen’s people evidently have tried to get Sandra Bullock, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Miley Cyrus on the show, but all refused to make an appearance based on that very reason.
I love Bethenny’s “Skinnygirl” alcohols but other than that, she does nothing for me. She’s just kind of there, hovering with her gigantic sleepy smile.
Whose show would you rather watch: Kris’ or Bethenny’s?
