Ellen DeGeneres shares what she is thankful for
Ellen DeGeneres knows she has a lot to be thankful for.
So on her daytime show yesterday, she mixed humor in with sincerity as she shared with her audience some of the things for which she gives thanks.
She started off by giving ‘thanks for elastic waistbands’ after a Thanksgiving Day pig out.
‘I am grateful for you – all of you,’ Ellen said. ‘Without you I would be up here talking to no one and that would be sad. I am thankful to have this show and this platform to reach millions of people every day – it’s not something I take for granted.’
Ellen said she ‘would never exploit (that platform) for my own benefit’ then went on to plug her new holiday album which she suggested viewers buy ‘if you want to bring joy to people this holiday.’
She is also grateful for her wife, Portia de Rossi.
‘Speaking of Portia, I’m also grateful for the magazines because without the magazines, I wouldn’t know of she was pregnant or not or if we’re getting divorced or getting remarried – I keep up with it that way.’
In a second video(below), Ellen tells her audience: ‘I have a wonderful life and I’m grateful for all of it.’
