Ellen K Receives Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame [VIDEO]
Our very own Ellen K was awarded a much-deserved star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame Thursday May 10th.
“I think it’s interesting that the woman who brings you the sleaze is enshrined between Shakira and Pat Boone,” Ryan Seacrest told the crowd.
At Los Angeles’ KIIS FM, Ellen has delivered the celebrity dirt and gossip every hour of every morning for years, all while adding a much needed female perspective to the show heard worldwide. Before working with Ryan and “On-Air With Ryan Seacrest,” Ellen also spent many years working alongside radio legend Rick Dees.
In addition to her radio work, Ellen has been the voice behind the Grammys and The Screen Actors Guild Awards.
She was recently hired as the narrator for TLC’s “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” and continues to work with charities dear to her heart including Children’s Hospital of Orange County, The Cancer Research Foundation and Our Journey.
“I look up to you and admire you,” E! reality star Kris Jenner said at the ceremony. “You are such an amazing example of how to do it all. You are a working mom and you do it with such grace and you always have that smile on your face and you bring a lot of love to everyone else.”
Ellen thanked her partners at Clear Channel radio, all the listeners, and her family—including husband Roy and son Calvin.
“It’s not something that I ever thought would ever happen to me,” Ellen told The Hollywood Reporter. “But it’s such a special, amazing, meaningful gift. I’m just kind of speechless and so excited about it.”
