Emmy Winner Ellen DeGeneres Talks Bruce Jenner, Prank Wars, and Expanding Her TV Empire

“Extra’s” Mario Lopez joined Ellen DeGeneres on her hit talk show, celebrating the show’s 55th Emmy win, where they chatted about the recent Bruce Jenner interview. Ellen revealed, “The first couple of minutes Portia and I were crying."

The talk show host continued, “I think we need to, like he [Bruce Jenner] said, open our hearts and let people navigate their own lives. Whatever makes him happy, is what we should support.”

Ellen also talked about all the fan support she received for her hilarious prank war with Matt Lauer, most recently pulling off the show-stopping "Fifty Shades of Grey" spoof on the Daytime Emmys. “I adore him, and at some point this will all end,” she joked, adding, “But I’m not done yet.”

If she wasn’t busy enough, Ellen told Mario that this summer she’s launching a brand new dating show about first dates.
