The past week might have gone great for you: a nice date with the S.O. maybe, or you got yourself that thing you wanted because it was Mardi Gras. But maybe that won’t compare to the extended birthday celebration talk show host Ellen DeGeneres is having.
The comedian and voice of Dory is still on a high from her 60th birthday party last January 26, and it was one for the books, having stars all in the lineup organized by DeGeneres’ actress-wife Portia de Rossi.
DeGeneres shared the deets in the Tuesday episode of her show, where she joked that her birthday was like Christmas and the flu.
“It’s an entire season.”
A-list guests included Sean Combs, Pharrell Williams, Pink, Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon.
“[Reese] strongly suggested that everyone should perform,” joked DeGeneres.
DeGeneres’ in-house DJ, Twitch, related to audiences how ‘blown away’ he was at the party.
“It was nuts,” he told the audience. “It’s like nothing in life prepares you for those kinds of events. Like, I couldn’t have been prepared to bump into Oprah.”
Speaking of Oprah, the producer, actress, host, author and business powerhouse also apparently had something to do with the tequila shortage the night of the party.
“I don’t want to blame anyone in particular, but I saw someone sitting at the bar drinking all night long. I’ll just give her first name, Oprah,” DeGeneres said, and flashed a photo of her and Winfrey with wine glasses in hand. “You can figure out which Oprah it was.”
Aaah! To live the life.
