Hi Ellen, i wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your show and. I had the great pleasure of reading your first book and how much I laughed. Ellen I work with PFLG in wooster Ohio, and you are a great inspiration to the LGBTA community here and around the world and I want to thank you for that as well.
As a stage three brain cancer survivor, having traumatic Brain injury I know the challenge of being perceived as different and not letting it deter one from finding a cure for cancer and a cure for bigotry. There are so many challenges in the world, and no one person or group of people can take them on. But you and your show are the best medicine for both.....Laughter is truly the best, for if you can laugh at it you can't be scared of it.
Thank you again for everything you do.

Cameron C. Moore.

I was thrilled beyond words when your staff called me and asked me if I would like to be in the Halloween audience. I AM INSANE ABOUT HALLOWEEN. I have designed costumes FOR YEARS. I have 6 trophies on my headboard shelf of costume designs I've done over the years. Your staff said I could not block the view of anyone behind me, so I knew my "Medusa" costume would not work nor would my "Cleopatra on the barge" or my "Two Headed Smoke Breathing Dragon"... They are Massive costumes. So I narrowed it down to 2.. "SheNaMil" a spinoff of Zumanity and Cruella DeVil. I opted for Cruella as Shenamil shows almost as much boob-a-lah as your Nicki Minaj costume did (although mine is real) HAHA. I LOVE MAKING COSTUMES. I need to make a youtube video of some of my costumes. Anyway, the trip to your show was wonderful although it IS the last hurrah of my life. Thank you for sending me out on a high note. Love you, Cheyenne (bobi)

Hi Ellen. Being in the audience for your Halloween show was a dream come true. I was Cruella DeVil. I made my entire costume from scratch. That full length FAUX fur coat was a monster to sew. I graduated FIDM in Los Angeles in 2005 and would LOVE LOVE LOVE to do wardrobe at your show. Anyway, when we were moved from the edge seats of the audience to the aisle seat, I was trembling so hard. I was so terrified that I was going to be called upon for something. Then I realized you probably wanted a recognizable Disney character on the aisle. That's all I could think of. I wanted to get a picture of myself with my henchman Jasper, Snow White, Minerva and Mary Poppins with her chimney sweep as a group photo of Disney costumes but I couldn't round everyone up in time. Darn it. We left your show and went to Chipotle for dinner and then drove straight thru to Vegas for Halloween there. Again I was Cruella DeVil with Jasper. If I had a dollar for every photo that was taken, I could pay off my debts. Being a Disney character, EVERYONE knew who I was and we met Russians, Germans, French, Hispanic, Dutch and more. There were at least 5,000 people on Fremont Street on Halloween night IN COSTUMES. It was an amazing 4 days that I will never forget. Thank you for my last "hurrah" in my life. Cheyenne (bobi)

I'm not a prude but Nikki Manja appearing as she did on a daytime talk show was not appropriate. And for Ellen to emulate only acerbates the matter and lessen the real problem. Let's see who is going to top this? Sincerely, Joshua
