Hot damn, Ellen and Portia are a beautiful couple, aren’t they? My favorite thing about them is that every time they’re together, they both just light up–they wear their adoration for each other on their sleeve and I really admire that. OK, enough fangirl-ing about their relationship, let’s talk about their outfits! For the “Arrested Development” premiere red carpet (side note: OH MY GOD I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING), Ellen chose a sleek gray suit while Portia vamped it up in a tight black dress and a funky pompadour. They both look stylish, happy, and confident, which is the very essence of “Well Played.” [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Gwyneth Paltrow generally leaves a bad taste in my mouth — a taste eerily reminiscent of wilted kale — but I am capable of appreciating aspects of her personality that are actually kind of endearing. Like the solid effort she put into the embarrassing task of imitating famous rappers like Jay-Z, Kanye West and Macklemore, on “Ellen” yesterday. Her Beyonce isn’t bad either. But that Chris Martin impression needs work.
‘Tis the season for celebrity political endorsements, and just yesterday comes another one — this time from Kelly Clarkson. Kelly says that while she considers herself a Republican, she can’t abide by Mitt Romney’s anti-gay marriage stance, and has decided to support Obama. Additionally, she said, “I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again … I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married.”
Additionally, she voiced concern over women’s rights issues. “I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the ’50s,” she said.
Last year, Clarkson voiced her support for Ron Paul, but then retracted it after it was found that Paul was linked to several racist and homophobic pamphlets. “I am really sorry if I have offended anyone. Obviously that was not my intent. I do not support racism. I support gay rights, straight rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights,” she said.

Rebel Wilson appeared on “The Ellen Show” on Wednesday, to promote her new music/glee clug movie extravaganza, “Pitch Perfect.” To commemorate the occasion, Rebel and Ellen partook in a little Salt ‘N Pepa. Watch their hilariously on-point version of “Shoop.”
Amy Poehler is really not doing much to discourage my desire to kidnap her children and raise them as my own. Archie and, squeeeee, Abel (my favorite, if I’m being honest) sound do frickin’ adorable! And it sounds like Amy is an awesome mom and all signs indicate that she and, sigh, Will Arnett are handling their recent split with maturity and grace.
Throwing his feet up on the coffee table isn’t the only thing Clint Eastwood is totally relaxed about. During his interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Eastwood shared his views on gay marriage and his libertarian beliefs: “Socially, [they believe to] leave everyone alone, but [they] believe in fiscal responsibility and government staying out of your life.” DeGeneres then pressed Eastwood — who famously spoke to an empty chair at the Republican National Convention earlier this month — about his stance on gay marriage, noting that he had previously said he had no problem with it. Eastwood’s response was again, “Leave everyone alone!”

Just the other day, we were talking about celebs we love so much that we’re afraid to meet them because we would, like, die of embarrassment and love and obsession all at once. Julie calls this I Love You So Much I Want To Squeeze You To Death. (Mine are Kate Winslet and Rob Thomas from Matchbox 20. Don’t judge.) On today’s “Ellen,” Olivia Munn got to meet her I Love You So Much I Want To Squeeze You To Death celeb … and it’s Ellen Degeneres. There’s squealing. There’s shrieking. There’s a weird crouching-butt-squeeze hug. And there’s a date to go kayaking and see Olivia’s new movie, “Magic Mike,” together. Is it just me or does Ellen genuinely look freaked out? [Ellen]
Russell Brand is opening up from his split from Katy Perry after 14 months of marriage — and he’s got a surprisingly positive outlook on the whole divorce.
“I still love her as a human being,” Brand tells Ellen DeGeneres in a new interview airing today. “Sometimes when you’re in a relationship I suppose it doesn’t work out, does it? But that doesn’t mean I regret it or anything. I was very happy to be married with her. She’ s such a beautiful human being and I just have only love and positivity for her.” Click here to watch the interview!
“I just sort of lost my head for awhile. I did some dumb interviews and it woke me up. … It was a very strange time. It sort of, like, rocketed me into adulthood. It was a violent crash into being an adult. So for a couple years, it was all figuring it all out. I’m glad I stayed out of the spotlight. I think back then I would have said ‘Give me two weeks! Let me get out! Let me go on ‘Ellen’ and explain myself!’ And it was, like, ‘No, idiot, go away. Be 33 and 34 instead of 28 for the fourth year.’”
– John Mayer is responding, of course, to his 2010 interview with Playboy magazine in which he got really overshare-y about his ex-girlfriend, Jessica Simpson. He called Jess “sexual napalm,” said she was like “crack cocaine” to him in bed, and said of her “If you charged me $10,000 to f**k you, I would start selling all my s**t just to keep f**king you.” (He later apologized to her in writing, but Jessica said she has not and doesn’t ever plan to accept his apology.) And then there was the time John got blabby with paparazzi about his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Aniston, which got him in big trubs with her. Keep reading »
