Billie Lourd owes her acting career to J.J. Abrams
September 12th, 2017 under Ellen DeGeneres, JJ Abrams. [ Comments: none ]

Back when J.J. Abrams was casting Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he could not find an actress to play Rey. The director decided to give Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd a call to see if she was interested in acting. Something she tells Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show that her mom and father, talent agent Bryan Lourd, did not want her to do.

She did not get that part that eventually went to Daisy Ridley, but she did land a smaller role in the film. When she came back from shooting her scenes, she told her mom how comfortable she was acting. That was when Princess Leia told her kid, if you are comfortable in one of the most uncomfortable environments, then you should act. Shortly afterwards, she had dinner with Ryan Murphy that she was acting, and a week later she was filming Scream Queens. The rest is Hollywood history.

She might have gotten her acting genes from her grandmother Debbie Reynolds and her mom, but she got the call from Abrams that changed her life.


Halle Berry and Ellen DeGeneres rub butts!
September 8th, 2017 under Ellen DeGeneres, Halle Berry. [ Comments: 2 ]

A post shared by Ellen (@theellenshow) on

Ellen DeGeneres loves when her guests dance with her on the daytime talk show and Halle Berry was more than willing to shake her booty with the host. So much so, their butts became one. Only problem is DeGeneres is a little stronger than the dainty Oscar winner, so Berry went down faster than Catwoman’s box office numbers. Butt Storm handled it like it was a nice sunny day.


Ellen DeGeneres is ready for her first day back to school!
September 6th, 2017 under Ellen DeGeneres. [ Comments: none ]

I do not know about you, but yesterday my Facebook news feed was full of pictures that parents posted of their kids’ first day back to school. They were not alone, Ellen DeGeneres also had her first day back to work on her daytime talk show for the new season. How did she celebrate it? She posed just like all those children and put on a backpack, held her paper bagged lunch in one hand and sign that reads “First Day of Season 15” in the other one. Also like those students, she had a big smile on her face. One that I am sure was gone by the time the final school bell rang for the day.

Why is it we were so excited for the first day of school until the morning bell rang? We knew what we were in for. How did we forget during that summer break? I do not miss the first days of school? Do you?


BTWF talk shows: Ellen DeGeneres on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson

Before Ellen DeGeneres was giving up and coming comedians on her talk show their break, she was one on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson. Is it any surprise why the 28 year old was invited to the couch in 1986?


Maybe celebrities shouldn’t do weather?
May 25th, 2017 under David Letterman, Ellen DeGeneres, Kevin Bacon, Tom Hanks, TV News. [ Comments: none ]

As we know, celebrities go on local morning news shows and sometime they do the weather while they are there. News Be Funny compiled several of them weathering the storm and the forecast wasn’t always sunny for Kevin Hart, Tom Hanks, Steve Carrell, David Letterman and Ellen DeGeneres to name of few of them. That is because they were causing a downfall of laughter with the viewers. While they might not be good with the green screen, they are great at making us feel good no matter how crappy the weather is outside.
