THE ELLEN DEGENERES SHOW is going to Australia



Ellen’s going to Australia!

Ellen made the announcement on her talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, yesterday while chatting to Australian actress Nicole Kidman.

Not only will Ellen be going to Australia, but so will each of the 400 audience members at the taping.

Unlike Oprah’s trip to Australia, Ellen will not be taking the audience with her (each audience member received an airline ticket to travel to Sydney or Melbourne on any date in the next 12 months with six nights’ accommodation at a four-star hotel), nor will the show be recorded there. Instead, Ellen will tape pieces and skits in Sydney and Melbourne to be played out on the show in April.

Even though Ellen’s wife, Portia De Rossi, is originally from Australia (Geelong, a town just outside of Melbourne), this will be her first ever visit to the country.

Ellen told Nine News, that “the trip to Australia would be “amazing” for me and my  audience members … I just always wanted to go, it just seems like a beautiful place to be, I won’t have time to go to all the different places that I want to go but Sydney and Melbourne are a good start.”

Ellen also said that she hopes to meet as many Australian fans as possible while there.

Here’s the moment Ellen announced the trip

Ellen’s Australian segments will go to air in the US in April.

That’s Entertainment!

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
