Mila Kunis Talks About Pregnancy and Engagement to Ashton Kutcher

Mila Kunis is FINALLY opening up about her pregnancy and engagement to Ashton Kutcher! The actress did an interview with Ellen DeGeneres set to air later today on Ellen’s talk show, discussing her cravings and birth plans, as well as her future with Ashton!

Mila told Ellen that she and Ashton already have a name picked out for the baby, though not revealing the gender or the name (rumor has it that it’s a girl!). She also revealed her “very stereotypical” pregnancy cravings.  “I eat sauerkraut all day long,” Mila admitted. “This is the worst craving to have because sauerkraut smells and so every time you open up a jar, it just reeks in the whole kitchen…It’s not like ice cream where everything smells lovely.” She also has been craving pickles, and Ashton keep a fridge stocked with all these crazy foods just for her!

Something else special that Ashton has been doing for Mila? Learning Russian. “He’s been taking classes for probably like six months now,” Mila said, acknowledging that she’s fluent in the language. . “He does it twice a week. A woman comes to the house to give him lessons…It’s really, really great.”

When the question arose as to what Mila would do when the baby is on the way, the actress said she wants a natural birth. “We watched a couple of documentaries and we looked into the…midwife aspect of it and things, and spoke to my OB/GYN and realized that the hospital that I’m going to be laboring in does a midwife, you know, doula type of thing,” she explained. “So I’m gonna do it as all-natural as I possibly can unless there’s an emergency or something.”

Check out the interview below!

I’ll tell you one thing, that’s going to be a gorgeous baby! I always wanted Mila and Ashton to be together, and now they are, and they seem so happy and in love!

Cee Lo Green Is Done With The Voice For Good!

Cee Lo Green is moving on! After four seasons on NBC reality singing competition The Voice, the singer has announced that he won’t be returning to the show….ever!

“I’m going to continue my relationship with NBC,” he said in an appearance on the Feb. 19 episode of Ellen.   “I have a television show development deal with them as well and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year. But yeah, I’m going to miss The Voice too. So I’m not coming back guys.”

Ellen DeGeneres asked Cee Lo to clarify. “I’m not coming back at all,” he said. “I don’t want to wear out my welcome there. You know what I’m saying. I have so many other things that I want to do. I haven’t released an album in four years. I’m almost done with my album.”

Lionel Richie joined Cee Lo on the show, and they made the announcement that they’ll also be going on tour together! “He’ll be with me, on the road,” Lionel chimed in.

Cee Lo was one of the original four mentors on The Voice sitting with Adam LevineBlake Shelton and Christina Aguilera. Both he and Christina were judges for seasons 1-3. Shakira and Usher took their spots for season 4, but they came back for season 5.

I don’t watch The Voice often, but there’s definitely a lot of talent there that Cee Lo has been a part of helping to groom. I’m sure he’ll be missed, but I’m ready to see what he has cooking up in the music realm!

Jodie Foster’s New Piece Is…

Alexandra Hedison.

Now, if that name sounds familiar to you, it should. Hedison has been linked with some of Hollywood’s heavyweights before, dating comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres after Anne Heche left her. Alexandra is also a player in Hollywood as a photographer and occasional actress (The L Word).

How close are Foster and Hedison now? They could already be living together. Reports are that Hedison recently sold her home in Laurel Canyon for over $1 million dollars after living in it for over eight years.

Does this mean Jodie won’t be invited back to The Ellen DeGeneres Show?
We’ll be waiting…

Justin Timberlake Talks Being Married To Jessica Biel: He’s Smitten


After being asked by Ellen Degeneres what the best part of being married to Jessica Biel is, Justin Timberlake responded with a coy, “I don’t know”. It was almost like he was scared to divulge any personal feelings or evoke any sort of emotion for fear of revealing too much.

But then he elaborated, giving a little bit of what we all wanted to hear.

According to our friends at Hollywood Hiccups, he told Ellen, “Every once in a while I can catch a glimpse of her when she doesn’t see me looking, and I have this moment where I’m like, ‘If you never make a good decision…if you only make bad decisions for the rest of your life. You made one really good decision.”

He then earned himself a few extra brownie points (and probably a mattress mambo session) by adding, “Because she’s just like…it’s nice to marry your friend. It’s nice to marry your best friend…It suits me.”

See, now that wasn’t so bad was it, JT? It IS okay to be romantic and be proud of who you walked down the aisle with! (And, I am sure Jessica felt all warm and fuzzy inside too!)

Check out a recent photo of the married couple looking not-so-happy, but content here.

Ellen Degeneres Announces Sequel To Finding Nemo


This week, Ellen Degeneres announced that she was going to be the star of a new Pixar film called “Finding Dory”…yes, a sequel to “Finding Nemo”. She said, “Today is our first show back. We were in Australia… I was there for a week. I was in Sydney for 2 days, Melbourne for 2 days, and then 4 days on a plane.

It was an amazing trip. And I just want to say to all the people of Australia – If you find my cell phone charger in my hotel room, send it to me. I left it there.

I learned a few things while I was there. I learned that you can’t just walk up to people and ask to look in their pouches. That’s one thing I learned.

And when I was in Sydney I learned that there’s no street called 42 Wallaby Way, like in “Finding Nemo.” I went looking for it!

What’s next? Sea Turtles don’t talk?

Wherever I go, people are always asking me about “Finding Nemo” and are they gonna make a “Finding Nemo 2.” And I didn’t realize it, but I guess I’ve mentioned it on the show once or twice.
So I mentioned it a couple times. But I’m a positive, patient person. And I know that when you have a successful movie, usually they make a sequel. So I waited and I waited. And finally I got the call from the director, Andrew Stanton-who I love very much, a very talented man– telling me yes indeed they are gonna make “Toy Story 3.” And I said hooray for Tom Hanks. Finally something good for him.

So then I waited some more, knowing that one day Andrew Stanton—who I love very much– would call again. And then not too long ago, he called. He said, “Ellen, the rumors are true. We’re gonna go ahead and make ‘Cars 2.’”

I wasn’t mad. I was furious. But I really believed that one day it would happen. And today, I am proud to officially announce that Pixar is making a sequel to “Finding Nemo.”

Here’s the good news – They say I’m one of the 5 top contenders to play the part of Dory. No, I will be Dory again, which is the most fun in the world. Actually the entire sequel is about Dory. The name of the movie is “Finding Dory.”

So kids, let that be a lesson to you – Anything is possible if you’re patient and you beg hard enough on national television.

I’m excited that it’s finally happening. I read the script and it’s fantastic, it’s hilarious, it’s warm, it’s everything that you want it to be. But the thing about those movies – They’re brilliant and they take a long time to make. So, it won’t be in theaters until 2015. But in Australia, I think that’s tomorrow.

It’s not that far away. Put up the countdown clock, please.

Only one million, three hundred ninety-five thousand, and three hundred and sixty-two minutes to go.

But for now, I can start my next campaign – When are they gonna make “Finding Dory 2”?”

Sophia: No we’re not.

Ellen: And what’s the difference between a sit-com set and a set like this?

Rosie: Because the walls aren’t actually up on the other wall so they just built it not that high so….it’s just not a real wall.

Ellen: No, (Laughing) Way to bring it home.


Ellen: So you’re acting now. You got a book so many things going on. What do you want that you haven’t accomplished yet. What would you like to have this year? You like?

Sophia: A film of me and Rosie.

Ellen: A film…I’m going to try and make that happen.

Well if you are sick of these little girls, I hate to tell ya but they aren’t going anywhere as long as Ellen is in their corner.

Josh Hopkins and Courteney Cox Dating?


Actor Josh Hopkins makes an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday, January 17th. Ellen asks Josh about the rumors that he and “Cougar Town” co-star, Courteney Cox are dating and yeah, he plays the big denial card. Check out the highlights and the video below.


Ellen: Hey,let’s talk about this rumor. You know Courteney is a friend of mine but there is a rumor that you and Courteney Cox are dating?

Josh: Um, that is unfortunately just a rumor. She will tell you, we are such good friends. I love her so much, that I would never ruin it by dating her (laughs.) We’ve actually been on two vacations together. My poor father though. My Father in Kentucky, you know I’m 42 years old and have never been married nor even engaged. So my father wants this to be real so badly. So I feel bad even telling him. Sorry Dad…

Ellen: So you’re hanging out with her as just friends but there’s picture of y’all all the time so everybody just assumes. But you’re just friends.

Josh: We are…

Ellen: So it means you’re single. That is the good news.

Josh: Yes….

I don’t know what to think about this. It seems as if when peeps pull the denial card, they usually ARE dating or at least doing a little somethin’ something. Cripes, you can’t just be friends as a male and female when you are hanging out in Hollywood…unless the guy is your hairstylist or your gay bestie. This guy either has no clue or he is just a really bad liar.

Chris Kluwe Knows There Are Gays in the NFL and Wants Them To Come OUT!


CHRIS KLUWE of the Minnesota Vikings makes an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Friday, January 18th. Ellen talks with Chris about why there are no “out” players in NFL and how he hopes that can change…


Ellen: There are no out players in you know, football, basketball, baseball. You know national leagues. There are gay players. There’s just no out players.

Chris: Right.

Ellen: First of all, my question is, do you see a shift in the way people are looking and thinking about that and why aren’t there any out players?

Chris: I see the shift in the fact that as older people die..(laughing) the younger people who were brought up to be more tolerant and accepting. They’re kind of replacing those people….When I first came in the league you could tell that the 8 and 9 years vets. You know, they grew up in the 80’s or early 90’s and that was part of the accepted culture of the time. You could call someone gay and it deemed an acceptable insult. Now were brought up, kids are brought up they’re taught that it’s not ok to call someone gay because that’s who they are. It shouldn’t be an insult. That’s a person. I think you’re seeing that now in the NFL because the kids that are coming out of college that’s how they’ve been raised so there is that shift happening.

Ellen: Obviously if someone was out…do you think they would immediately be picked on? Because there is trash talk any way on the field, right?

Chris: Right.

Ellen: Somebody’s really going to come after you. Are they worried about getting hurt? Are they worried about getting kicked out of the league?

Chris: I think it’s more a distraction issue in that it’s so hard to make it to the NFL. It’s maybe 1% of 1% of everyone that plays high school football will even have a chance at the NFL. So it’s one of those things that you look at it and maybe I can put up with this for 4 years, 5 years make my money and then once I’m done I can be who I really am. But hopefully the stuff that Brendon’s doing. The guys like Scott Fujita and Connor Barwin of the Houston Texans that I am helping out is to create environment where one day a player will feel, I can be who I am.

Ellen: Yeah.

Chris: I don’t have to hide who I am and it won’t affect my football playing. Because I am here to play football.

Ellen: Well, that’s the case with most people who are scared to come out what ever the profession is. I think they think, well, when I’m done with my job I’ll do it. Which doesn’t help anybody especially kids that are feeling alone living some place thinking I don’t have any role models.

Chris: Right, exactly.

Ellen: But I know it’s hard for people to do that….

Star of “Broken City,” MARK WAHLBERG makes and appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday, January 17th. Mark chats with Ellen about his busy schedule, working on his Mom’s new reality show and how he injured his toe…and then he shows off his toe. Apparently his feet don’t stink.

Mark: It’s a very lively crowd here. It woke me up. I’ve had a long day

Ellen: What have you been doing?

Mark: I just flew in from Boston. I flew in from a snowstorm

Ellen: Really, today?

Mark: Yeah. We were in Boston last night. New York yesterday during the day. We were doing publicity for “Broken City” and we had a fundraiser at a restaurant “Wahlburgers” and my mom is now filming a reality show that we sold to the history channel about building a family business.

Ellen: Oh wow

Mark: So we went there to do that and then I jumped on a plane this morning and there was 2 1/2 inches of snow and it was very bumpy and I had to have half my toenail removed.

Ellen: Why?

Mark: The thing’s just growing the wrong way. So I had a problem before and the guy Mickey O’ Keefe who played himself in “The Fighter”?

Ellen: Yes

Mark: He’s a police officer? Well his daughter in-law, thank god is a podiatrist came so she came and cut half my toenail off.

Ellen: Wait, ok so I’m still in the snow. Did this happen on the plane?

Mark: It happened before I got on the plane.

Ellen: Before you got on the plane? So are you shot up with pain stuff or?

Mark: It’s worn off now.

Ellen: So now you’re in pain?

Mark: Yes. I’m feeling it…But the energy is making me feel better…I apologize; I know that was a random story.

Ellen: I love random stories. I don’t like to stay on the straight and narrow. Can we see it?

Mark: Do you wanna see it? It’s wrapped up. You don’t believe me?

Ellen: I believe you. Was it an ingrown toenail?

Mark: Yes

Ellen: It was the Big toe?

Mark: Yes. That’s the medical term.

Ellen: I still don’t know if I believe you. I think you have that on there…

Mark: I never go without socks.

Ellen: But why?

Mark: I just don’t.

Ellen: You have good feet. You have really good feet.

Mark: Because I always wear socks.

Ellen: Let it air out…. That’s good. Let it rest, it needs to rest. [Mark puts feel up] Can I get you a drink?

Nicki Minaj Tries To Explain Mariah Carey Feud


American Idol Judge” NICKI MINAJ makes an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Tuesday, January 15th. Ellen talks with Nicki about adjusting to her new role on “American Idol” and getting used to the work schedule. And, Nicki opens up about her rumored feud with fellow judge, Mariah Carey. Plus, Ellen gives Nicki a gift of “BFF” necklaces for her and Mariah to try and patch things up.


Nicki: All of them ( fellow judges) always like to take breaks, pees breaks and eat breaks. I’m always like I don’t want to take breaks. If I take a break, I’m not going to want to come back so they literally go and pee and stuff and I sit there like…(shaking her leg)

Ellen: Really? You’re the one keeping everybody on time?

Nicki: Yes.

Ellen: That’s a shocker…

Nicki: Well, no. Not in the morning.

Ellen: Ok.

Nicki: Once, I’m already there I don’t want to move…


Ellen: Let’s talk about what everybody was talking about during the audition rounds. You and Mariah had a little bickering situation.

Nicki: What?

Ellen: Yeah, we have footage if you would like me to remind you. So what happened there? I kind of think I know what happened but what happened with you and Mariah?

Nicki: I don’t know. It was just to big old divas, I guess. I was just like sitting there. and I guess before I went in there I heard all the stuff that was being said but I didn’t believe it. I heard them saying Mariah doesn’t want you on the panel but I was like, no. I am friends with Mariah. I was like arguing people down. Like, don’t believe everything you read, you’re crazy. And so I went there and I started to feel a bit of the shade. And I just kind of over compensated by being crazier. And I don’t think that really…

Ellen: That didn’t work?

Nicki: No.

Ellen: She didn’t like the crazier?

Nicki: No.

Ellen: You thought, I’ll make you sorry. I’ll show you.

Nicki: Kind of, not like that…If you know someone maybe doesn’t like you. It’s kind of like, now you’re gonna like really go in and show hey, because it’s like a defense mechanism. You know what I mean? It’s really that. You’re feelings are hurt and you can’t believe it so you kind of just compensate with being crazy.

Ellen: Right, poor Keith Urban it in between you two. The sweetest guy in the world. So now how are you all getting along?

Nicki: We’re fine. I cannot hold a grudge against Mariah Carey. What people don’t understand is that I’ve looked up to her for so many years. Since she came out, “Vision of Love” all that. Me and my Mother would sing her songs like all day and all night. So I don’t know if she’s gotten over it but I have. I mean, I’m over there cracking up laughing, having fun and if she’s still holding a grudge. I don’t know. Like I don’t care.

Ellen: And, what do you think the live shows are going to be like?

Nicki:…You know what I’m not looking forward to live shows.

Ellen: Why is that?…Come on Nicki, let it out.

Nicki: I cannot trust myself.

Ellen: In what way?

Nicki: Just like if there’s a slick comment being made… I just want it to go well. It’s about the contestants. We have a lot of great talent and I don’t want anyone on the panel to say something to crazy because then I don’t want to look like a crazy psycho again. I am not really a crazy psycho you guys, Seriously, please, no. I swear…No, I am serious. I am really not…

Ellen: I don’t think you’re a crazy psycho. I think you are a very passionate, creative person. And I think you have some many different facades of your personality. And, I think some personalities are wilder than other personalities.

Nicki: Yeah

Ellen:And, that wild personality that you have can get out of control. And the calmer one goes in the back and goes; I’m not going to stop that girl. And that girl is out there, right?

Nicki: Right, that’s what happens…

Ellen: …It’s going to be good TV not matter what. It’s live and it’s good. If goes well great and if it doesn’t better.

Did you see that peeps? I just did a big fat eyeroll and y’all know why.
