Ellen DeGeneres June 11 2013 Recap
Ellen was full of excitement on June 11 2013. She gave her pal Bethenny Frankel a dream come true and toasted to her upcoming talk show. Mario Lopez provided the champagne and there was a lively montage of their friendship. Then, Martin Short provided comedic relief and a fan got a John Deere tractor for her farm. Also, Darius Rucker performed his song of the summer, “Wagon Wheel.” I told you, so much excitement!
Ellen: John Deere Tractor Anniversary & Photobombing Butt Picture
Ellen rode out on a real John Deere tractor in honor of summer. She then gave the tractor to an audience member who just purchased a farm. Then, Ellen showed off some of the funniest photos she’s received from viewers in “What’s Wrong With These Photos, Photos?”
Ellen: Martin Short Book Titles & Darius Rucker “Wagon Wheel” Review
Martin Short came and told Ellen all about his crazy tour and what he’s been up to the last two years. He’s playing around with titles for his memoir, but first he has to figure out his computer. Short and Ellen played Heads Up!, Ellen’s hit new app. Of course, Short is excellent with impressions.
Hootie & the Blowfish member and country star Darius Rucker performed his summer song, “Wagon Wheel.”
Ellen Gives Bethenny Frankel Times Square Billboard & Talk Show Topics
Ellen’s best friend, other than Portia de Rossi, Bethenny Frankel stopped by for her final test run and to shoot some promos for her new talk show. Bethenny premieres in September and Ellen has prepared her friend. All that’s left to do is a ceremonial Ellen scare and champagne toast. Ellen ran up behind a calm Frankel when she was doing green screen work. The results was one of the best scares ever. Then, Mario Lopez brought out drinks. Bethenny was thrilled to see all of her appearances on Ellen in a montage and to get two special gifts from her friend. First, Ellen gave her gal pal a photo to hang in her new offices. Then, Ellen surprised Bethenny with her own billboard in Times Square. The gesture moved Frankel to tears.
