Matthew McConuaghey is going to be on Ellen DeGeneres’ show today and he told her he is a fan of Celebrity Apprentice. You read that right, he loves the show and can talk about it detail. Not only that, I love how excited he gets when he talks about it.
Ellen: Do you watch reality TV?
Matthew: I do watch a little bit.
Ellen: What do you watch?
Matthew: “Top Chef” and “Celebrity Apprentice.”
Ellen: Are you watching “Celebrity Apprentice” this year?
Matthew. Yes, TiVo’ing “Celebrity Apprentice.”
Ellen: It’s good, isn’t it?
Matthew: That’s some real good fun.
Ellen: It’s two hours. I think that’s a long time to commit.
Matthew: I don’t mind. I wouldn’t mind if it was three [hours].
Ellen: And who are you liking?
Matthew: I think who looks like they could be good at is it John Rich. He’s going to be good at it. Star Jones is good at it. She’s a diva but she’s good at it. Even when she’s not team leader, she’s taking control back there.
Ellen: Yes, she is. She’s not getting along with everybody. We had Nene on the other day. Nene does not like Star.
Matthew: Wait till Nene is the project manager and has to tell Star what to do. That’s going to be fun. She doesn’t mind speaking her mind.
Ellen: Gary Busey. Are you enjoying that?
Matthew: It was funny the other night when he won. I’m not sure if he knew why he won or how he won but he did win. He’s funny.
Ellen: He’s got all these acronyms. He’s got all these names, these words, and then he has all the things that all the letters stand for.
Matthew: He’s a walking self improvement book.
I don’t know about you, but I never saw that coming. I can understand him saying that he likes anything on the Food Channel or Man v Food, but the Donald Trump reality show just doesn’t seem like something he would be in to. If I were Trump, I would call him up ASAP and tell him he is hired for next season. I would so watch it with him on it and you know you would too.
BTW I hope next time when he answers what reality shows he likes, he makes sure to add his babies’ mama’s show Shear Genius to the list?
UPDATE: Here is Duran Duran performing the first single, All You Need Is Now, off their brand new album of the same name that is out now on Ellen today. They really are a timeless act!
