I hope you’re having a great 3-day weekend! I spent most of it in the garden getting my hands dirty… and my pants dirty, and my shoes dirty and my hair dirty. Gardening is a lot dirtier than I thought.  

First, let me tell you who’s here this week -- Felonious Gru! That’s right! The star of the hilarious new sequel, “Despicable Me 2,” is here in person. I’m looking forward to meeting him and finding out how he feels about our mutual friend, Steve Carell.

Wanda Sykes is here! She’s one of the funniest people I’ve ever met, and I’ve met a lot of funny people. She always has a funny story to tell me, and I can’t wait to hear her next one.

One of my favorite shows, “So you Think You Can Dance?” is back, and host Cat Deeley is here with some of the “SYTYCD” All-Stars! I hope at this point they all know they really can dance.  

Speaking of dancing, the winner of the mirror ball trophy, my friend Kellie Pickler is here! I voted for her all season long on “Dancing with the Stars,” so I imagine she’s here to thank me.

Plus, Howie Mandel is here! Whether he’s hosting a game show or telling me a crazy story about his life, he’s always hilarious. Because of him, every time I open a suitcase I’m disappointed if it’s not filled with money.  

The man behind someone of the funniest movies -- and one of the funniest women -- Tyler Perry is dropping by to tell me about his not one, but two new TV shows, as well as his character, Madea. He works harder than almost anyone in Hollywood and he often does it in a wig and heels.

I’m also going to meet a 5-year-old piano prodigy who is as adorable as he is talented. If you knew how talented he is, or how adorable he is, you’d be very impressed.

All that, and I’ve got Mike O’Malley, magician Justin Flom, Dave Franco, and a performance by OneRepublic!

This week is so big, it’s Ludacris. Seriously. Ludacris is going to be here, too.

Ellen, I do not have facebook, to tell you how much I enjoy your
show. I get to watch it on my rare days off work. And of course
I DVR some of your shows. It is really great to watch the show
and see your enthusiasm, it rubs off on your viewers. I hope you
put gardening photo's up on the show, maybe I can get some good
ideas. Enjoy your holiday.

Sevgili Eleen ben size TÜRKİYE den yazıyorum.Daha öncede size pek çok kez yazdım.F akat hiç bir cevap alamadım umudumu hiç kaybetmedim umarım en kısa zamanda bana yazarsınız.
Size o kadar hayranlık duymaktayım ki tarifi mümkün değil, anlattın deseler kelimeler yetersiz kalır . Yaklaşık 150 ci proğramınızı izliyorum hiç kaçırmadım çevremde ne kadar tanıdığım
insan ve akrabalarım dahi her keze sizin show ğunuzdan bahsedip izlemelerini öneriyorum onlarda büyük beğeniyle izleyip keyif alıyorlar, tüm fecebook twitter iletişim yoluyla mesajlar atıp sizleri tanımalarını ve izlemeleri için tüm çabalarımı kullanıyorum. Çünkü siz buna değersiniz, evimin neşesi yaşama sevincim mutlu olmamı hayatta umudumun ışğımsınız siz bana güç veriyor ve hayatta mümkünü olamayacağım dileğimin gerçekleşmesine belki de sahip olma umudunu verebilme hayalini gerçekleştirebilirsiniz. Her kez gibi benimde hayallerim var bunlar hayatta hiç sahip olamayacağım bir ev bir araba bu iki şey benim hayatta sahip olamadığım istek, belki de isteğimi bana ancak siz gerçekleştirebilirsiniz. Günlük yaşamıma her sabah kalktığımda sizden gelecek mesajlarımı okumak için açtığım da sizden gelecek bir haberle yaşıyorum belki bugün eleen dan mesaj vardır deyip hep gözlemliyorum dedim ya sizden gelecek bir umut beni hayata bağlıyor. Ne olur bunu benden esirgemeyin, siz insanları seven ve bir o kadar insanlara yardımda bulunan kişi olarak beni kırmayın hayallerimi ancak siz gerçekleştirebilirsiniz? Bana da bu imkanı sağlayın lütfen. Sizin o güzel yüzünüzü görme ve sizinle tanışma imkanını sağlarsanız ve hayallerimi gerçekleştirirseniz o kadar çok mutlu olurum ki sonsuza kadar size minnettar kalırım. Düşünsenize TÜRKİYE den bir ilki gerçekleştirebilirsiniz. Seni seviyorum Eleen ve seni hep seveceğim ve sevmeye de devam edeceğim çünki siz benim iyilik meleğim siniz inanın bana siz o kadar hayırlı bir iş yapıyorsunuz siz tanrı katında kutsal birisiniz insanları mutlu ediyorsunuz ve onlara yardımda bulunuyorsunuz tanrı sizi korusun ve kutsasın sevgili Eleen
E--EBEDİYETE KADAR SÜRSÜN MUTLULUĞUN

Hi Ellen,
Love you, love you, love you. I have been watching you for years. When your are having your give always I find myself jumping for joy and I haven't even won anything.
You just make my heart melt when I watch how you make so many people happy. You change people's life's in so many ways.
I would love, love love to win a trip even if it was for 2 days. My wounded husband and I have an AFC home and we have to take our vacations separate. My dream vacation is to go to hawieii but I would take down under anytime. And I would look for your blue
sweater. Lol

Have a great summer! Hug to you and Porcha.

Hello Ellen, I love you show but since I had a job I could not watch it every day.Unfortunately after 18 years of working for the same Company I am without a job. The company cease operation and I am seeking employment, as there was no benefit given I have try and get employment as quickly as I can.On the other hand I get to see your show much more now when I am not out job hunting.I am a single mom and the only income in my house so I would really like to win a trip to the down under.Thank you for a great TV show and I love your dancing.

I just realized that this is a blog for winning a trip. I wouldn't mind at all. I have lots of reasons why i'd like to win. Down Under would be one dream fullfilled. For twenty years now i've always wanted to go to back and visit Leavenworth WA. i've only been there once on our family camping trip passing thru. So at the time i vowed to be married there. I wasn't. never came true. so i promised myself i'd go someday and i'm still waiting for my husband to have time and money for it. As an epileptic i can't drive to it myself. and no one wants to go over stevens pass for me. it's never a good time. thats why i'm still dreaming.
i really hope someone that deserves your giveway gets there dream come true.

Hello Ellen,

One of your biggest biggest fans. I watch you every day. I am a 48yr old disabled gay rodeo rider that watches your show every single day. How do home viewers get to win anything or get to see your show? This site is kinda hard to navigate to find entry forms for winning something. I live below the poverty level, and also a full time student and just can t afford to hop a plane to get to Cali. so simple forms might be easier for folks out here in the general public.

Thanks for listening,

Brian Erb
