Can Tom Bergeron Get Ellen K. On ‘Dancing With The Stars?’ [AUDIO]
Tom Bergeron was in vacation mode when he took time out to call into “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Thursday after being told that he must speak to Ryan Seacrest.
KIIS FM’s own Ellen K. will be receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012. Ellen wants to use this opportunity to make one of her dreams come true. Ellen wants to be on “Dancing With The Stars.” So, who better to reach out to than the host of the show, Tom Bergeron.
“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.
