You may have seen Ellen DeGeneres’ face in the window of the Gap on Walnut Street and wondered what that was all about. Well, the popular television celebrity has teamed up with the clothing store to introduce a line of girls’ clothing that aims to “empower girls everywhere.”
The line, called “Girl,” is described as “a collaboration dedicated to supporting girls just as they are, whether they skateboard or dance, wear dresses or jeans, build forts or paint rainbows, or everything in-between. We encourage girls everywhere to take pride in what makes them unique.” What a refreshing notion, right? I love the video below of Ellen interviewing a young skateboarding posse wearing the collection:
NBC has released a sneak peek of Ellen’s latest project, sitcom One Big Happy, which concerns a straight man (Nick Zano) and a lesbian (Elisha Cuthbert) who decide to have a baby together. Things go awry, however, when the dude finds a serious girlfriend (Kelly Brook). Think of it as a different kind of modern family.
It’s set to premiere on March 17th, and Ellen says you’re absolutely going to love it—because “there’s a lesbian in it.”
At 10:06 p.m., Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres tweeted this photo with Jenkintown’s Bradley Cooper (and a bunch of other really famous people). Within one hour, it had over 1 million retweets and broke the previous retweet record, set by President Obama after his re-election. It also broke Twitter, temporarily.
Sadly, things don’t seem to be going so well for Sean Hayes’ NBC sitcom Sean Saves the World, but the network is banking on a new team-up with Ellen Degeneres — an LGBT sitcom that will feature a lesbian lead. It’s about time, huh? Deadline reports:
It’s been a long summer without one of our favorite daytime talk show hosts. But Ellen DeGeneres kicked off season 10 of her award-winning show with a bang – with none other than Philly native rocker Pink yesterday.
Here’s a clip of the two women talking about being fellow CoverGirls, not to mention motherhood and music:
And here’s Ellen’s opening monologue from the new season (yep, she got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame):
One of the most interesting shows of affection came from a recent flash mob performance outside of a JCPenney store in Los Angeles, home to DeGeneres’ own highly rated talk show.
GROOV3 – a group of non-professionals who dance to boost “confidence, weight loss and a sense of well-being,” according to the website – created a creative response to critics with a “show the love and stop the hate” performance. We just want to know when they’ll be appearing on the Ellen show.
