Michelle Obama Called Ellen DeGeneres ‘Annoying’
The Former First Lady appeared on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ and featured in the CVS run. During the shoot, Ellen DeGeneres took Michelle out to a Super Market. This was to get her used to a normal life that she will be living after the presidential period is over. Ellen, to say it most politely, kept hovering and badgering Michelle Obama throughout their trip.
Ellen kept opening unpaid boxes and eating unpaid chocolates. At first, Michelle Obama tried to deal with it smilingly. Soon it became evident that she was finding the entire thing irritating and embarrassing. For instance, Ellen scratching Michelle’s back with a stick after repeatedly being asked not to or screaming that Michelle has a ‘rash’.
Michelle was taking everything very sportingly. However, things went downright cringy when Ellen wanted to sign a baby’s forehead and made Michelle do all the work while paying. Ellen asked if she could have her face on money to which Michelle replied that she needs to do something major. Michelle said that it’s not like she has freed any slave!
In the end, Michelle said on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ that Ellen is extremely annoying. She said it right on her face and said that it’s like she has brought a 3-year-old with her.
Martha Stewart Said ‘None of Your Business’
We know that reality talk shows are supposed to ask personal questions related to the dating life of the celebrity. Still, sometimes it gets downright awkward. The same happened when Martha Stewart, Anna Kendrick, and Snoop Dogg came together on the show. Ellen started with playing a round of ‘Never Have I Ever’ on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ to lay off some tension.
While there were some interesting moments – Snoop Dogg raising ‘I Have’ to whether he has ever been on a talk show stoned – there were cringy moments too. When Ellen DeGeneres asked if the celebs have ‘sexted’, all the four celebs raised ‘I Have’. Ellen took a dig at Martha by asking if she knew what ‘sexting’ was. Martha replied that she has been using technology for longer than her!
Ellen poked further asking who she has sexted to which Martha sassily replied, “it doesn’t ‘say none of you business’”. While the stars laughed it off, Ellen continued to make the moment awkward. She later asked if Stewart has been to the nude beach with the same guy she was sexting. Martha chose to ignore the remark completely.
Cher Called Ellen a B**h
Sometimes celebrities lose their patience and that happened with Cher when she went to a hair salon on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’. The customers were pretty excited to see the celebs at their salon and even more excited when they learned Cher and Ellen would be doing their hair. But, Ellen decided to make things harder for Cher.
She kept irritating Cher by spraying water on her customer’s hair and it was pretty evident that Cher hated it. Things went a bit too far when Ellen put on a wig and made a parody of Cher’s song. Ellen said that the customers knew her better than Cher and Cher simply said that Ellen is being a b***h.
Dakota Johnson on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ is known to make certain celebrities highly uncomfortable. But, Ellen’s entire conversation with Dakota was pretty uncomfortable for everyone. It started when Ellen started asking Dakota why she wasn’t invited to her birthday party. Dakota replied that she did invite her but Ellen didn’t come. Later, Dakota even mentioned that she didn’t even know if Ellen liked her!
Things went next level cringy when Johnson said that Tig Notaro is her favorite comedian. The entire segment was pretty uncomfortable overall for anyone to see.
Priyanka Chopra Knows Nothing
That’s not what we are saying, that’s what Ellen said on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’. When Priyanka Chopra came to Ellen DeGeneres’ show for the first time, things didn’t go smoothly at all. Ellen complimented Priyanka saying that Hollywood is mesmerized with her beauty and also the fact that she can act. Priyanka said jokingly that it doesn’t happen often. Ellen didn’t like the tone and decided to take digs at her.
She asked about the beauty pageant wave and Priyanka showed her how it’s done, Ellen said that she has learned nothing. It was one of the cringiest episodes that went way too viral on the Internet.
