The Cover Girl model and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has been tapped to host the Academy Awards in 2014!
It is a very popular choice we must say. It is also a very safe choice after Seth Macfarlane this year.

This is Ellen's second time hosting the show as she hosted back in 2007.
“I am so excited to be hosting the Oscars for the second time. You know what they say — the third time’s the charm.”-DocFB
Diagnosis: A very solid, popular, safe choice. It will make the long show a little bit more enjoyable.
When she is not getting photo-bombed by Kelly Clarkson and with her beautiful wife Portia de Rossi, Ellen Degeneres is busy dominating daytime talk and she will continue to do so for at least another 4 years.
NBC made the announcement that the daytime queen has re-upped her contract through the 2016-2017 season. 10 NBC stations and 179 outlets decided that Ellen is the way to go.
Warner Bros. Television President Ken Werner stated:
“Ellen is quite simply the best. Day in and day out she and her team produce a unique and compelling hour of entertainment which is appointment television for legions of women.”
“We are absolutely thrilled that NBC, Ellen, Warner Bros. and all of our station partners will be continuing our successful relationship for years to come."
Valari Staab from NBC also chimed in:
“Ellen is the crown jewel of the NBC Owned Television Stations daytime lineup. We are proud and thrilled to extend our relationship with Ellen DeGeneres, all the great people working on her show and our friends at Warner Bros.”
Congrats to Ellen and here is to another 4 more years!-DocFB
Diagnosis: The daytime line-up for NBC stays in place at least.
Phyllis Diller passed away at the age of 95, trailblazing a way for female comedians after her time. When Jerry Lewis and Adam Corolla say that female comedians are not funny, Phyllis Diller shows them just how truly stupid they are.
Phyllis mad herself the butt of jokes from her looks to the outrageous costumes she wore on stage and for interviews.
She did not start being a comedian until in her late 30's which was back in the 1950's. Bob Hope to a liking to her comedic style and featured her whenever he could.
You look at female comedians now like Ellen DeGeneres, Whoopi Goldberg and Amy Shumer, and the comedy is not focused on their looks. Ellen is pure comedy gold and she knows without Diller or Joan Rivers, she would not be where she is today.
Rivers is upset that not most know who Diller is. I do, but that is because of my Grandparents letting me know at an early age, and her voice was unmistakable in cartoons I watched as a kid when she would be a guest star in "Scooby Doo" and others.
She truly was the Queen of one-liners and her set-up and delivery was smooth and quite fast.
Phyllis Diller will not be forgotten, by her peers, by her fans, by anyone. I know this has been used before, but when it comes to her, it is completely true. Right now, she is making God laugh.
Thank you Phyllis for a childhood that wouldn't have been as funny without you.-DocFB
Ha! Ellen DeGeneres just released this photo above saying "she LOVES Miley Cyrus's new hair do so much that she copied it!"
Thankfully, it appears to be photoshopped! We LOVE Ellen's hair as is.....
Just a reminder, The Ellen show returns for it's 10th season September 10th!-DocFB
Yes! Yes! Yes! Pink is the new face of Cover Girl cosmetics! The bad-ass singer who's new video "Blow Me (One Last Kiss) already has over 3 million views on youtube and has a new album entitled "The Truth About Love" was very excited to add Cover Girl to her list of accolades.
"I have a lot to celebrate. I called my new album The Truth About Love, and the truth is that I have my beautiful family and baby girl, my new music and now my partnership with CoverGirl to love.”
“Joining a group of women who have always inspired me — to laugh out loud, let my guard down, or play around with my beauty look — is such an honor."
The group she is talking about include Taylor Swift, Drew Barrymore, Sofia Vergara and our fav, Ellen DeGeneres.
Her ad campaign will be called "Beauty With An Edge" and debut this Fall.
What do you think of Pink being the new face of Cover Girl?-DocFB
We like Ellen. We like her because she is cool and because she is a genuine good person.
On her season premiere, she hooked up an Elementary school principal with a $100,000 courtesy of Target. Principal Sherrie uses her own money and donations to provide for kids at her school that are homeless.
Target also hooked them up with a backback full of school supplies and books.
We are glad Ellen is back. Most people for their season premiere would have had a chockfull of guests, but aside from Ashton Kutcher, Sherrie and her kids were the main focal point.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Be Good To Each Other.....
