Mattel Kate Middleton Barbie & Prince William Barbie Doll
Ellen reported that Mattel is making Barbie dolls of Prince William and Kate. She was sad to learn that they don’t plan to make an Ellen doll. Ellen has decided she is related to the Royal Family, but I guess Mattel was not moved by her story.
Instead, Ellen had her own Cousin Ellen doll made, and she featured it on the show. She said Mattel will make these dolls available in April to commemorate the one year anniversary of the couple’s 2011 Royal Wedding.
“But you don’t have to wait for mine. I’m going to be selling them out of the trunk of my car after the show,” she said.

Ellen’s Bob Harper Workout
Ellen DeGeneres explained why she was walking funny on her talk show today. She and wife Portia De Rossi have started training with Bob Harper, from the TV weight loss show The Biggest Loser.
“It was like living my own reality show,” she joked. “Next week, I’m going to Wife Swap with Newt Gingrich.”
Ellen & Portia Workout
Though Ellen and Bob have known each other for over a decade, they only recently started working out. She said it is a difficult workout, and she wasn’t expecting the rigorous training she has seen on TV.
Ellen said she is very competitive, so she tried to best Portia at the various exercises they performed with Bob, such as rowing. She also mentioned Air Squats, Jump Rope, and classics like Push Ups and Sit Ups.

Ellen said the muscles throughout her body are tender after this new workout with Bob Harper. But she took his advice to heart. She said Bob told her to, “Stop crying, big baby, and keep moving.”
