Ellen’s presidential ‘dream team’
Comedienne-talk show host Ellen DeGeneres talked early this week about some of the things that have to be there when she starts the day, among other replies to The Hollywood Reporter’s questionnaire, which was sent to some of Tinseltown’s most influential women.
The host-producer of the long-running program “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” specified her morning musts: “I wake up in bed with my wife, my three dogs, my three cats and feel grateful. Uncomfortable, but grateful.”
Asked about her secret to working with difficult people, she replied, “I wouldn’t know, because I’m lucky to be surrounded by talented, lovely and kind people. Many who’ve been with me for 16 seasons.”
Her dream 2020 US presidential ticket? “I had a dream [where] Snoop Dogg was my running mate, but we couldn’t decide who would be president and who would be vice president, so we went and got pizza instead.”—OLIVER PULUMBARIT
