Did you see Ellen yesterday?

I can def app humor but I was a little taken back by Ellens show yesterday. She played a joke on the audience by pretending someones husband was flown in from Iraq to suprise her. She read a letter and brought the woman onstage to "open" a big gift. When she opened it it was a man in uniform posing as her husband. I was soo upset and cried for joy to then find out it was a joke. The man and woman were playing along and acted as tehy didnt know eachother. they were just staff members for the show. No real reunion. Again, I can app humor but this seemd to be almost mocking those families that have loved ones at war. Especially around the holidays. What did/do you think about this?

  • I stopped watching her a few years ago... After a while it just got old. I think that's really disrepectful for her to do. It gives me one more reason not to tune in.

  • That's not funny. Did you go to her website and tell her what you think? I live in a military town and am sure that didn't go over big for the families here.
