ELLEN

Last week I had the opportunity to go and see the Ellen show at the Warner Brothers studio in Burbank, California! It was SO much fun! My sister Whitney was able to get tickets (after trying forever!) and so I went with her, my mom, and my other sister. It was a short 24 hour trip, we left Wednesday afternoon and flew home Thursday night. Our show taped on Thursday and aired on Friday. The guests were Neil Patrick Harris (aka Dougie Houser MD), Betty White, and this boxer kid who is only 7 years old! It was so much fun! We had to wait in a holding room for about 3 hours until they let us into the actual studio. During that time the employees for her show were walking around talking to everyone asking where they were from and they ended up taking my sister Whitney, along with 6 other people and interviewed them so that one of them could be chosen to play the game on the show that day. Sad to say Whitney didn't get picked, but the girl who did played the "Gold Digger" game and won $750.00!! We were lucky enough though to get FRONT ROW SEATS once we were in the studio! It was so much fun and so fun to see a live taping! They don't let you take your camera in and you phone has to be off - so we didn't get any pictures at the studio. AND there wasn't a giveaway (bummer) but it was still so much fun to be there and have a gals trip with my family. I LOVE ELLEN!!
Here is the only picture we got - eating dinner the night before!

Jealous! I love Ellen! I saw that episode on Friday - if I had known you were there I would have tried to spot you on TV!

I am also insanely jealous of your trip to Ellen. I love her show, but Porter thinks she's ridiculous. He doesn't think it's cute that she dances through the studio. I do!!!
I really, really want to go to an Oprah taping. And, Porter wants to go to a taping of The Cobert Report.

I am totally jealous you went to Ellen. I'm glad you had fun and were able to go with your mom and sisters. I was hoping I would see you dancing on the stage, but at least I saw you at the beginning of the show.

I had a great time being the back-up person! Maybe next time I'll make the cut.
