Tom Bergeron was called by Ryan Seacrest to do his radio show today. Ryan was on a mission to get side-kick and KIIS FM’s own Ellen K. to be a dance contender on Dancing With The Stars. Today it was announced Ellen K. is to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. She wants to use the star to get on the show. If she wins, she plans to give the money to charity. Details below and at the link on this fun conversation. It will be interesting to see if producers will take Ellen K.’s offer? Thanks to Lori for this news!!
“I want to use this star on the walk of fame to get on “Dancing with the Stars” and then I will give any money that I get from the show to charity and it would go to a children’s charity to make the children the stars. See it’s a star theme,” Ellen explained to Tom.
Tom Replied, “That is the most underhanded approach I have ever heard. Here you are, you try to pull on our heartstrings, using children. Have you decided which children’s charity or were you just going to throw in the blanket sick children angle?”
“Just so that you can get yourself spray tanned and parade around skimpy outfits, which come to think of it, now I’m liking this.”
“Since she is serious, who is the best person to put her in the que for an audition?” Ryan asked.
“We should talk. How much ready cash do you have? I mean liquid.” Tom said jokingly. “I was always told in negotiation never throw out a figure,” Ellen replied.
“No, because then you are negotiating against yourself, but here you have all the poor children out of the picture. It’s just you and me blatantly into bribery and corrosion,” Tom said.
“Is the person we need to talk to Deena Katz?” Ryan inquired. “That’s exactly right, Deena is the person for whom all must grovel and beg,” Tom replied.
