Ellen DeGeneres Stops By To Help The Real Celebrate Its 1000th Episode
Loni Love: Oh my god, it’s Ellen DeGeneres!
Adrienne Houghton: Amazing.
Loni: Ok! Well, since you’re here and this our 1000th episode, Ellen…
Ellen DeGeneres: Yes!
Loni: What did you do when you had your 1000th episode? I mean, I know that was a long time ago.
Ellen: Let me think back! Um, I had Oprah on my 1000th episode, but [points to herself and the hosts] same! I’m here, so…
Tamera Mowry-Housley: Yay!
Adrienne: So major!
Jeannie Mai: Same, same!
Amanda Seales: Same!
Adrienne: Is there any advice on like, how to make it to the next 1000th episode?
Ellen: You know what you do, you keep it real!
Ellen: You know, I just think it’s really important, as y’all know, and that’s why you have the group that you have, that everyone on television is represented.
Ellen: Everyone needs to see somebody
Ellen: …that they go, “That’s me.” Because for a long time I didn’t see anybody like me on TV. And that made me scared, it makes, you know, the parents scared, it makes everybody scared and they judge what they don’t know. And the fact that there’s an eclectic group of women – powerful, strong, opinionated women – that is a representative that we need.
Adrienne: Thank you so much!
