It’s been a long journey, but it’s finally here! I couldn’t be more excited about heading to Australia.

Portia is so happy to get to show me her home country for the first time. It took years to find the right time to go, and after countless hours of planning and schedules and coordination, I got sick and had to postpone a few days. I guess Us Weekly is right; celebrities really are just like us.

Now I’m feeling much better and I’m headed Down Under! I want you to be a part of my trip every step of the way, so make sure you’re following me on Twitter and Instagram and Facebook for all of my Australian updates! I’m looking forward to seeing the most incredible things Australia has to offer, in their natural habitat. I hope somebody knows where Russell Crowe lives.

Don’t miss some of my favorite guests on the show all week long. Plus, play our Watch and Win game for a chance to win a $5,000 gift card! Look for the Spring Break City in every show, enter it on our website, and you could win!

I watch you and your show as often as I can and like it. I think you are a great host and enjoy being in other peoples lives. I would though as a Canadian like to be invited to your show and all your contests.
I wish you and Portia Happy Easter and maybe who knows maybe we will meet up some time.
Keep the LOVE ALIVE

Loved last week show, with pic of Australia, You two looked so happy on your trip, but 14 hr on plane would have been hard.
It will take some time to get over Jet Lag, You do look so tired. Sure need to give you E for effort just to be on your Show. Never miss it, if do, I record it.

I was not able to send you my letter or email I donot have have access to pictures and etc I wrote such a long note youre always helping someone I need help so that I can retire and enjoy whatever I have left here. With my credit not so good since my husband passed away got behind in my rent and discover suing me for a bill I didnt know I had 8 years ago and Im sure its all interest Im 77 yrs old not ready to kick any bucket yet got a few heart problems and of course I had the bad habit of smoking which I am fighting each day not to pick up again Getting help in this town only helps others it seems that way any way Anyway thanks for listening I love it when you end your show "BE GOOD AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER" Wish everyone would follow. Please dodnot publish my name

Ellen - Darn it! I have gone back to work. I need your fun stuff. I think you should have me on your show not knowing anything about me. I'm just a normal person who is very fun and outgoing. Love cats.

Looking forward to seeing you.
