Message from Ellen

Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day! I’ve already had three green beers and I don’t feel a thing. You know what, this might be a kale smoothie.

I’m celebrating all week long with some very exciting guests. Jennifer Lopez is here! I love that after all of her incredible success, she’s still so down-to-earth and real. Don’t be fooled by the rocks that she’s got. She’s still Jenny from the block.

One of the biggest movie stars in the world, Kate Winslet is here! The last time she was here was in season 6, so before we get started, I want her to briefly describe what she’s been up to for the past five years.

Also, the hilarious Ty Burrell is stopping by. I want to ask him about his co-stars in the new Muppet movie. He’s working one of my favorite fuzzy and adorable friends, Ricky Gervais. 

Theresa Caputo, the Long Island Medium is back! I’m really hoping she has a message for me from my Great Aunt Lisa. She’s not dead, she just lives on Long Island.

If you saw the viral video of the 3-year-old arguing with his mother, Linda, over a cupcake, (LINK) you’re going to love that Mateo is here this week! I’ve got my lawyers standing by in case things get serious.

I’ve also got a fun performance from Derek and Julianne Hough! What a cute couple they make. I didn’t realize they were married. Come to think of it, they look awfully alike.

For the first time, Ariana Huffington is here! Her site, The Huffington Post, has changed the way people get their news. She also wrote a new book that I love.

Plus, Meryl Davis and Charlie White won gold in Sochi for pairs ice dancing, and now they’re telling me about going head-to-head on this season of “Dancing with the Stars”! Will they win gold again? Probably not, since they don’t give gold medals to the winners of that show. 

I’m also talking to the always-hilarious Howie Mandel, the ever-charming Lauren Graham, the snowboard-conquering Shaun White, and mother-meeting Josh Radnor. I told ya this was a big week!
