Saw today's show with the First Lady, the kids from the school she supports and Daniel Radcliff.
She would make an excellent Ambassador to some troubled nation.
And, she looks great for 52.
Some troubled nation in a bottle
According to wikipedia.org, Ellen DeGeneres was born January 26, 1958, in Metairie, Louisiana. She is 54.
I look better -- and I'm 53.
thought it ws reported on here that she was a nasty drunk
Classy lady? C'mon OP, she looks like she pees standing up.
"And, she looks great for 52."
Hey, thanks for the laugh!
Is that a baby hosting a talk show?
Cover Girl Cosmetics
Let's not forget that comics are violently depressed people. : )
It's one thing to look "great" at 54, it's another to look "19" at 58, like me.
You know what I'm saying?
That's just when she's on camera, OP. I'm not saying how or where, but I've heard her berate an underling.
Also, I don't know that she looks great for her age. She definitely looks her age, though and her wardrobe choices only highlight her age.
True, she dresses like a grandpa, but I can't picture her in more feminine attire. It would be weird.
Is "That Ellen DeGeneres" different from this Ellen DeGeneres, or from Ellen DeGeneres?
She's absolutely impossible off-stage.
I'm home sick and watching her show right now. I think she looks great. Did she start using Botox? It looks like a lot of her wrinkles have diminished.
Anyone know if she got alot of pussy?
She's nasty. I mean how perverted are you when your lead question to the First Lady of the United States is, "Do you want to do some scissoring?"
I never fell for her happy-happy shit that she does on her show. It just seems so fake.
Much plastic surgery, and she is looking good. Before he started kissing her ass, Howard Stern recounted the ways he had been told she mistreated her staff, including asking them to write jokes (all-nighters) for awards shows and not thanking them, berating staff, basically being the opposite, real world version of the (predictably) fake tv version.
Her extremely manipulative 'pet episode' with the adoption agency was a peek into how spoiled, unwavering, irrational celebrities behave when faced with common sense rulings that are in place to protect animals, not the whims of 'talent-lite' public figures/comedy simulators.
Unfortunate, it's well known that she's a miserable bitch in private.
She's had lots of subtle nips and tucks. Just compare her face now to about 5 years ago.
In The Love Letter she had wrinkles, tits and an ass - she has none now.
You must admit that there's nobody who can compare to Ellen when it comes to dancing. Her rhythm and grace can't be matched.
She's not a bitch, she's just tired from moving all the time.
The only thing I don't like about Ellen is that she makes celebrities play stupid games. I think that's beneath them, and embarrassing.
But, R24, the sheriff said to gain acceptance you have to crawl around on your hands and knees, begging.
[quote]She's had lots of subtle nips and tucks. Just compare her face now to about 5 years ago.
A man with a trophy wife would not give a shit about his looks. At least DeGeneres tries to keep up.
Keeping up with what? The current trajectory of surgical butchery in the name of beauty?
Cant stand this crass money grubbing bitch. She should just have the sex change she dresses like a man all the time now. Her stint on american idol where she really had no place and her cosmetics commercials where she has no place either because shes fucking ugly only reinforce to me how greedy and delusional she is.
"...how perverted are you when your lead question to the First Lady of the United States is, "Do you want to do some scissoring?"
"And how bout I just stick my dick into you and we'll call it even?"
Michelle "Big Balls" Obama
She plans to wear a gown when she gets the Mark Twain award at the Kennedy Center in October.
She's wonderful - for a depressed, angry, controlling, two-face, alcoholic bitch.
Ellen looks incredible for her age. It is an insult that she meets with the first lady, she should meet with Obama directly as should Rosie O.
Leave the first lady to meet with the lipstick lesbians and interior decorator/fashion type gay males with TV talk shows.
"She would make an excellent Ambassador to some troubled nation.
And, she looks great for 52."
Jesus, are you stupid. She's just a stupid celebrity, you dumbass. And she looks like she's always looked: like a plain man.
"And, she looks great for 52."
ANYBODY CAN! For only $30,000.
[quote]She should just have the sex change she dresses like a man all the time now.
Jealous she dresses better than you, Sir?
She is a Republican who is best buds with Mary Cheney.
It is in her book, so go run out and read it.
I'm not an Ellen fan or for that matter a foe. But, I don't think she looks all that hot for 52. Ellen was on Leno the other night and she looked like an old lady. Granted, the tonight show has cut all unnecessary expenses so they may not have makeup lady on staff anymore.
If Ellen is a rethug, then I will learn to hate her.
Did this turn into a parody thread?
She should be the next ambassador to libya
Anyone notice that Ellen also had a nose job when she had that facelift?
She looks great with the super frosted lense on those Cover girl commercials, too. Seriously, what demographic are they trolling with her as a spokes-dude? And what drugs do they give her audience to pee themselves everytime she opens her mouth? blech.
She looked like Hillary Clinton
Loved her sitcom but find the frenzied party atmosphere of her talk show to be creepy. Megachurch creepy.
She's too syrupy sweet and sycophantic for my taste. She really piles it on during an interview. I much preferred Rosie back in the day - when she sucked up to people, at least she made sure she was self deprecating with it.
i don't like her. or her anorexic suffering perfect wife porsha.
the only thing i like is that they didn't breed anymore mough breathers.
I have just returned form my wickens store and have all my materials to construct my Ellen doll to stuff with pins, needles and phalluses. I will teach her not to be a rethuglican. I will also pull her hair out so she will go bald too.
I just looked at current pictures of her and I don't believe she had anything done to her nose. I have no idea if she had any other type of cosmetic surgery but her nose is the same. It just looks smaller because she has a more flattering hair style.
When I learned she has a ranch for abused and/or abandoned animals, I stopped hating her.
You know, I just read that JK Rowling dropped from the list of billionaires. Part of the reason is, she donates millions of dollars to charities (so far more than $100 million).
What has Ellen done with her wealth aside from flipping houses?
R41, I thought it began as a parody thread....
a friend worked for her. she's a miserable person who suffers from intense paranoia. the staff of her show hates her. i can't go into specific stories, but she's unstable and volatile. not good.
i was actually disappointed to find this out because i always really liked her. she's great at what she does and i respect what she's done for LGBT youth, but i would never want to deal with her off-camera.
Why is Portia with her? Money?
r57, is it related to a drinking problem? That seems to always come up in discussions about her. What's to be paranoid about? What could she possibly be hiding?
She has always been overly emotional and neurotic. When she gave interviews for her first sitcom, pre-coming-out, she was crying. The network was forcing her to stay in. It ws important for her to come out on TV. I'm glad she eventually did, but she's a bit of a loose cannon and megalomaniac.
HHAHHAAHAHHHHHHHHAHHAHHAHAHAHHHHHHHH.No one in this business is classy
Impossible to imagine anyone succeeding in television without being controlling and paranoid.
Men exhibiting such behavior are considered 'driven' or 'exacting', and possibly 'assholic'. Yet a woman is 'insecure', 'paranoid' and 'emotional'.
I interviewed for a job (personal assistant/house) for her & Portia once. Everybody I knew BEGGED me to not even go to the interview. I could not ffind ONE person in LA who had anything nice to say about her. The stories keep coming & supposedly Portia is an unhappy kept woman. At least she has her animals.

During the writers' strike, someone who had worked on the Ellen show (don't know the capacity) put up a blog that others contributed to, that detailed Ellen's abusive episodes and general assholery (e.g. cheap with the Christmas bonus). It was linked here.
[quote]What's to be paranoid about?
Like a lot of successful people she thinks the only reason people are interested in her is because they want to profit from the connection. She may be right.
It doesn't excuse being a shitty boss.
Did you go r63?
from an old gossiplist mailing (culled from datalounge)....
This is more dirt we received on Ellen.
i think ellen is probably nice to fans, but incredibly
vile to the people who work for her. remember a former
writer's assistant posted this during the strike?
--- I don't know how Ellen treats her current writers,
but I can tell you about how she treated the previous
batch: Like shit.
People tend to be disappointed when I answer the "
What was Ellen really like?" question by suggesting
she must be a very talented actress to convince America
she's nice. We'd watch her in rehearsals, smiling and
winning us over with her charm and comic timing. Then
the director would yell cut, her face would fall, and
she'd level a glare at the writers. "Why do you keep
writing these unfunny jokes?" she'd hiss. [...]
We saw her through her first time hosting the Emmies,
and many of our writers penned that material. They
wrote jokes for three versions of the show after the
telecast kept getting postponed because of 9/11.
Finally, it aired (opposite Game 7 of the World
Series, no less) and Ellen did a great job with great
material. The next day, staff and crew greeted her
with a hearty round of applause. Did she thank the
writers for their jokes, or at least their hard work?
Here's what I remember her saying: "I felt like I
really reasserted myself in the industry last night."
Later I heard she blamed the show's cancellation on
9/11 delaying the premiere.
A few years ago, I was told this story by a friend.
who had just had lunch with a friend who used to work at the
ellen degeneres show until a few years ago. friend said
that ellen is a complete asshole and the opposite of
her public image. apparently this is public knowledge
one of her stories... when the writers strike happened,
ellen's head writer (at the time) told ellen she should
take some time off to support the writers, it would
look bad if she didn't, etc. ellen said absolutely
not. so the writers strike happens, ellen gets bad
press for continuing on air. when the strike ends and
the writers come back to work, ellen calls in the head
writer and immediately fires her for "not warning her
about the bad press she would get if she kept shooting
the show during the strike." not only does she fire
this person (who apparently was one of her closest friends
for many years and regularly appeared on the show), she
strips away all responsibilities of the head writer's
fiance, who also worked at the show. systematically went
after the fiance until that person is basically forced
to quit as well.
friend said ellen regularly throws tantrums behind
the scenes in which she cries and carries on like a
crazy bitch. also said she is incredibly paranoid to
the point of it being frightening.
Wow, I think I hate this bitch now.
I recall the story about the head writer. Another of the stories had Ellen either forgetting or not really caring to give her writers Christmas bonuses. When reminded, she produced some Amex gift cards of rather small
demonminations. Didn't cost her a cent.
I can't find the blog. It was rather inflammatory even if correct, so whoever did it probably took it down for career reasons. Part of it seems preserved in R67's post. D-Listed mentioned some of it.
DLer from Downunder here -
Always thought Degeneres was mildly amusing in her sitcom - and some of her early standup was ok too - but I can't watch her on her talk show at all - she creeps me out! Comes across as utterly fake. And get the feeling there's something nasty underneath that could explode to the surface at any minute...
Can't understand how she can be so popular when she's so false & creepy
(but then - I kinda felt that about Martha Stewart as well on the couple of occasions I saw her - so maybe it's just me...lol)
Tell us about Jenny Craig, R70. Mitt Romney lavished some praise on her lately (Jenny Craig is dead to me! thread). Besides having celebrity endorsers, we don't know much about her.
You can just tell the people who are playing the game to make have a gig and make money: Ellen, Angelina, Rosie did it, Leno. But behind it all they are Machiavellian cunts.
I think it was Kathy G that said she was tough on her sitcom but that she had to be because it was her show. I remember thinking that Kathy (I think it was Kathy) was trying to hint at the old, but truthful saying, if she had been male, she would be described as "tough" but female she's a "bitch".
Love ellen . she is definitely the best part of my day sometimes .

no, you're just Aussie.
r57 -- that comes after a year or two of being a vegan.
Seriously. Vegans don't get enough B-12, and/or enough of the calming amino acids that make calming neurotransmitters. The diets are also high in copper and low in zinc, which eventually create problems as well...
r67 -- that info is TWELVE years old. She may have changed, especially since finding love with Portia?
I know a person who worked on Ellen's show at one time, and she's a mean bitch in private. She's had a ton of face work done and it takes a lot of work in the makeup room to cover some of it up - apparently there is some scar tissue. Also, she's a drunk. She apparently drinks at home at night and frequently shows up hungover to work. My friend told me that Ellen is nothing like her public image - she's a capital "B" Bitch behind the scenes.
This is all first-hand from my friend, but I know many of you won't believe it. Whatever, I don't care.
I'd suck her dick
r78, i have real first hand knowledge, not by friend, but me. my experience with her; she was friendly and great to work with. Others I've talked to said the same.
Not everyone is always a bitch or an angel.
she's a scheming cunt
R69 do you know what my and my colleagues Christmas bonus is - a lunch out at the cheapest venue in town on the last day at work before the Christmas holidays and £15.00 cash to spend at the bar. Now that's cheap.
