Ellen: Twitter Event In Melbourne
Did you know that Ellen went to Australia? I know, right? Total secret. Nobody knew.
Ellen gave us a taste of her Twitter event from Melbourne. Her fans decorated big signs to commemorate her visit. She gave a family struggling financially $10,000. She brought out Portia and told everyone why her wife inspires her. It was a huge event, bigger than any that Ellen has thrown before.
Ellen: Julia Louis-Dreyfus
Veep is going into it’s second season and Julia Louis-Dreyfus came to check up on Ellen. She said last time they saw each other she was at a crowded salon. Julia was next to Portia and Ellen walked in with a human-sized tree branch and a big smile on her face. She presented it to Portia as a gift. Thanks, honey?
Ellen: Joe Biden Message
Julia just won her third Emmy and she got a congratulatory call from Vice President Joe Biden. He apologized for not calling earlier. Seriously, Joe, get on top of things. But really Julia was so flattered that he called. The last time they met, Joe Biden got her good in a dunk tank. She was grinning ear to ear because Joe Biden had just dunk tanked her.
Ellen: Vice President Game
Since she plays a Vice President on Veep, Julia and Ellen played a game of guessing the Vice Presidents. Here’s what she had to go off of. She got so stuck on Martin Van Buren, mostly because it was Amy in a freaky wig with two stuffed tigers. We were all a little concerned for Amy’s sanity.
1. 44th VP, wanted to be Robin to the President’s Batman, and he misspelled potato – Dan Quayle
2. 41st VP, nickname “Rocky” – Nelson Rockefeller
3. 43rd VP, hates broccoli, celebrates birthday by skydiving – George Bush Sr.
4. 8th VP, first language was Dutch, had two tiger cubs as pets, rumored to have worn corsets – Martin Van Buren
