Message from Ellen
Happy Sunday! Things seem to be warming up across the country, and I couldn’t be happier. Yesterday I was lying by the pool and got a brain freeze from my Slurpee, so I know what y’all were going through.
Big things are happening on my show this week, and it all starts with Drew Barrymore! She’s got the cutest little girl named Olive, and another one on the way. She also told everyone I called her “fat” at the People’s Choice Awards, so we’ll clear that right up.
All three of this season’s "American Idol" judges are here! Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and the new judge, Harry Connick, Jr.! I’m so glad my friend Harry is a judge. He’s going to do a great job. I also have some parking tickets I need him to fix.
One of the biggest names in the world, Kim Kardashian is here this week! She’s a new mom, a new fiancée, and she’s about to start a new season of her show! I can’t wait for Kanye to put her on his motorcycle and drive her over here.
I’m also talking to two of the stars of the new movie “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" -- the very handsome Chris Pine and the newly knighted Kenneth Branagh! I’m not sure what the requirements are for becoming a knight, but now that my cousin Kate is married to the Prince, I’m sure I’m pretty high up on the list.
Also, the beautiful Juliana Margulies is here to tell me about her show, “The Good Wife,” which just won the People’s Choice Award! If it won that, it must be good, because those people make some excellent choices.
If you haven’t yet seen the movie “12 Years a Slave," you probably should see it before the Oscars. The incredible lead actor Chiwetel Ejiofor is here, and I’m gonna talk with him all about his incredible performance.
All that and more starts Monday. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
