Ellen DeGeneres Will Awkwardly Host the 2014 Oscars

8 Jul

Get up on your feet and start dancing to the blandest song on the radio, because Ellen DeGeneres is hosting the Oscars next year. The talk show dropped the Friday-morning bomb a few minutes ago on Twitter.

“It’s official: I’m hosting the #Oscars!” She wrote. “I’d like to thank @TheAcademy, my wife Portia and, oh dear, there goes the orchestra.”

DeGeneres previously hosted the Oscars in 2007. Her gags included vacuuming the carpet mid-show, periodically chatting with nominees in the audience and other things people apparently found way more funny and comforting than I did.

On the bright side: She’s taking the reins from last year’s host, Seth MacFarlane, whose show was widely criticized for being unfunny and probably offensive.

Elton John Now Says Miley Cyrus is a “Terrific Girl”

2 Apr

Remember when Elton John said Miley Cyrus was a “meltdown waiting to happen?”

Yeah, scratch that.

On Wednesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the 66-year-old musician actually defends the tongue-wagging princess.

“She’s a big supporter of the Elton John Aids Foundation… she’s a terrific girl,” Sir Elton tells DeGeneres.

“Her dad’s been in the business for a long time. [The VMAs] was a controversial performance that got everybody talking. And that’s what it’s suppose to do… she’s 18, or 19 or whatever,” he says.

Sir Elton also points out that since the VMAs, no one’s talked about any other artist.

“She has two records in the top 10. She has a number one single,” he says.

As for that interview with The Australian, in which he also called out on Lady Gaga (“I’d like to be able to talk to her right now, but I can’t get through to her”), Sir Elton brushes it off like an old jacket that doesn’t sparkle anymore.

“That was the Australian press. We know what they’re like,” he says.

Riiiiight.

Elton John’s appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show airs on Wednesday.

Simon Cowell Gushes Over Baby News on ‘Ellen’: ‘I’m Actually Happier Than I’ve Ever Been’

2 Feb

Your eyes haven’t deceived you: Simon Cowell is really smiling and laughing in this new interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

In the new episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Tuesday, Cowell opens up about his impending fatherhood and goes on to defend baby mama Lauren Silverman.

“Oh my God, this is exciting,” he says of the time the baby news broke. “And it’s going to be a bit of a nightmare for the next few weeks . . . everyone knows, it’s well documented. It was kind of uncomfortable, you know, the situation.”

“But these things happen and everything’s kind of calm now and I’m happy. In fact, I’m actually happier than I’ve ever been.”

Cowell, 53, and Silverman, 36, made headlines earlier this summer when it was reported that the New York socialite was pregnant with the couple’s first child. In August, Silverman reached a divorce settlement with real estate mogul Andrew Silverman.

“I can’t blame the media, it was a juicy story but here was a lot of stuff that was said about her, that she trapped me, that she’s a gold-digger, it was absolute nonsense. She’s a great girl,” Cowell tells DeGeneres.

“It was awkward because of the circumstances.”

For more of Simon Cowell’s chat with Ellen DeGeneres, tune into the talk show’s new season this week. For now, watch the rest of the preview clip, above.

Realty Byte: Ryan Serhant Tours Ellen Degeneres’s $13 Million Cali Ranch

21 Nov

It was only two months ago that Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi plunked down $26 million big ones for a seaside Montecito, Calif. spread.

So obviously they don’t need a measly $13 million mansion now that they’ve upgraded.

The real estate savvy pair, who besides their chicly cropped manes, are known for flipping properties and for $12.995M the lucky new owner will call this 8-bedroom and 10.5 bath estate home just 45 minutes outside of L.A.

The couple’s Hidden Valley Ranch (not the salad dressing) is a stunning 26-acre equestrian compound and a nature’s lover’s paradise. But this isn’t your typical ranch.

The imaginative retreat consists of 8 farmhouse cottages all with their own vintage and contemporary style mixing 20th-century designs by Jean Prouv and Arne Jacobsen with industrial furnishings, old portraits and fencing masks for a cozy, comfortable setting by decorator Jay Holman and designer Cliff Fong.

Other over-the-top features include an updated windmill, tree house and, yes, a yoga pavilion.

Perfect for entertaining their plethora of celeb friends, there’s the “Art” and “Romantic” barns that have separate kitchens and loads of space to use as a workshop or office area.

And for more outdoors fun, there are walking trails, a fenced in tennis court and basketball hoop.

It wouldn’t be a ranch without some horses, so you’ll find state-of-the-art facilities with six double-sized stables, hay barn, stable lounge, radiant floor heat, new dressage and jumping arenas and an adjoining judges’ stand.

The carefully executed landscaping, that took the talk show host one year to revamp, also comes with environmentally conscious amenities from over 100 newly planted trees along the main road to the use of recycled materials in construction and d cor.

Let Million Dollar Listing’s Ryan Serhant take you on a personal tour across the stunning 26-acres in the CB! video above.

Heidi Klum on Canceled Halloween Party: ‘I Didn’t Think It Was Right’ During Sandy (VIDEO)

7 Nov

Heidi Klum made headlines when she canceled her annual Halloween party in the midst of Superstorm Sandy’s destruction.

“I was in New York,” the Project Runway host recalls on Tuesday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I was actually in Haiti first and Sandy was first in Haiti and then it traveled up to New York. And I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I’m going to have this twice.’ And I kind of did have it twice. I went to New York and then Sandy came to New York and it was crazy.”

The Hurricane-chasing former Victoria’s Secret model realized that there was no way she could throw her annual Halloween shindig amid the storm’s devastation.

“So many people have lost their homes and other people have lost a family member,” she continues. “I didn’t think it was right to dress up and drink and dance. And so I rescheduled it.”
