I LOVE Ellen DeGeneres! She is the reason why I don’t take naps in the afternoon! She seems like a celebrity that would give you the shoes she was wearing if your heels were killing your feet. Happy to announce that she is receiving the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in October. Without skipping a beat Ellen issued a statement;

“To get the same award that has been given to people like Bill Cosby, Tina Fey and Will Ferrell, it really makes me wonder . . . why didn’t I get this sooner?”

The Mark Twain Humor award has been around since 1998. Other recipients include: Richard Pryor,  Whoopi Goldberg, Bob Newhart, Steve Martin, Billy Crystal, George Carlin, and others.  I believe Ellen is very deserving of this award!

In other Ellen news, her and Portia just bought a home that was once owned by one of the co-creators of “Will & Grace.” It’s actually where they got married. They sold their previous Beverly Hills mansion to Ryan Seacrest, who was at their wedding! And if you are still following along, they sold the home Ryan bought because they also just paid $12 Million for a beachfront home in Malibu from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. In conclusion, I have learned that it doesn’t matter who you have for a Realtor in Hollywood, as long as you have famous friends with great property, it’s yours if you want it!

Now I’m going to go back to my room in the back of a house and dream of winning the lottery!
