Ellen: Gaining Weight, Weight Lifting & What’s Wrong With These Photos? NEXT PAGE ADVERTISEMENT Ellen: Gaining Weight Over the Holidays Was this you over the holidays? Fret not, Ellen fans, you’re not alone! I personally took down half of a pumpkin pie in one sitting. And then came back for the leftovers. It was bad news!
