Melissa Villasenor Impersonated Ellen During Her Failed 'SNL' Audition - Watch Here!

Melissa Villasenor’s impression of Ellen DeGeneres is amazing!

The 33-year-old Saturday Night Live cast member sat down for an interview with Ellen on Tuesday (April 13) and recalled her first time auditioning for the show.

“You auditioned over ten years ago and I heard that in your audition, I was one of your impressions,” Ellen said. “What happened in the audition?”

“Well, you know that audition, the first one was great and you were in there Ellen,” Melissa replied. “I don’t remember the bit I did, but I think it had to do with ‘ABC,’ the Jackson Five song.”

Melissa then sang a couple bars of the song in her Ellen impersonation and it sounded just like her!

“That’s all I remember and I’m sorry it’s so bad,” Melissa said as Ellen laughed.

Melissa‘s impressions earned her a callback with Lorne Michaels, but unfortunately she didn’t get past the second round of auditions.

“But then you didn’t get it,” Ellen said.

“I wasn’t ready, I was 21,” Melissa replied. “I wasn’t funny.”

“And now you appreciate it more probably,” Ellen added as Melissa nodded.

Ellen DeGeneres Reveals Which Cartoon Characters She Thinks Are Gay

Ellen DeGeneres has dubbed herself the “nation’s leading expert on gay” and she’s revealing which cartoon characters she believes are gay.

The debate began online, when fans were trying to figure out if Velma from Scooby Doo is gay.

“People online are once again debating whether Velma is a lesbian,” Ellen said. “So here are my thoughts. First of all, she’s a cartoon character so no one should really care about her sexuality. Secondly, just ’cause she wears those clothes and has short hair doesn’t mean she’s a lesbian.”

“And third, obviously, she’s a lesbian,” she added. “Come on. Velma, she’s on our team….She has short hair. She has thick glasses. She solves mysteries. She’s basically the Rachel Maddow of cartoons.”

She then decided to highlight other cartoon characters, beginning with Snoopy’s Peppermint Patty. “Let’s look at the evidence here. She wears Birkenstocks. Her name is Patty. Her best friend calls her Sir, which is short for Sir-iously gay,” Ellen said.

Other cartoon characters she touched upon were Spongebob SquarePants, Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, and more.

During the interview, she opened up about a time before their reality TV show, when her and then-spouse Caitlyn Jenner were getting intimate – not knowing their child Khloe was underneath the bed playing hide-and-seek with a friend at age 10.

“They hid under my bed and stayed there for a really long time,” Kris recalled, saying the couple got into “a little bit of hanky panky.”

She didn’t provide too many details, but said the experience “was traumatizing,” and that Khloe “didn’t bring that up because she has PTSD over that one.”

“They stayed there for hours…we caught them sneaking out. It was awful…they couldn’t have possibly known what we were doing, but I think as they got older they figured it out,” she added.

It was recently revealed that The Kardashians have a very interesting way of testing for COVID.

Kim Kardashian is 'Focused' on This Amid Divorce From Kanye West

Kris Jenner is providing another update on Kim Kardashian amid her divorce.

The 65-year-old momager and reality star appeared for a virtual interview on good friend Ellen DeGeneres‘ talk show, airing on Thursday (March 25).

While she didn’t directly bring up the 40-year-old makeup mogul’s divorce from Kanye West, Ellen asked Kris how Kim is doing.

“Kim’s good. She’s good,” Kris said. “She’s really really busy, working on all of her different projects that she’s doing, and I don’t know how she does it, with all [my] grandbabies. She’s got a lot of energy, that kid.”

Kris also said that Kim is very “focused” right now on studying law.

“She’s so focused and she’s so, like, she’s just passionate about the whole thing and everything she stands for, and I see her studying… it’s in her schedule every single day, when I get all the schedules for the kids,” Kris explained. “Her study time is all blocked out, so nothing else can get in the way. I’m so proud of her.”

Kris added, “I think that’s a big motivation for her, you know, having her dad do what he did. She always looked up to her dad, and that was her idol.”

Last week, Kris was the first Kardashian-Jenner family member to break their silence on Kim’s divorce from the 43-year-old rapper and fashion designer. You can find out what she said here.

Ellen DeGeneres Lost 1 Million Viewers After Toxic Workplace Controversy

The numbers are in, and Ellen DeGeneres has a smaller audience these days.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show lost more than a million followers since September according to Nielsen ratings, via the New York Times on Monday (March 22).

The show has averaged 1.5 million viewers over the last six months, down from 2.6 million in the same period last year, according to the report.

The news of her viewership comes as Ellen opened the season with an apology following accusations of toxic behavior in the workplace.

“The show’s loss of more than a million viewers translates to a 43 percent decline, representing a steeper drop than any of its competitors. This TV season, Ellen, the winner of dozens of Emmys since its start in 2003, is no longer in the same league as traditional rivals like Dr. Phil (2.5 million) and Live: With Kelly and Ryan (2.7 million). Now it finds itself uncomfortably close to shows hosted by Maury Povich (1.4 million), Kelly Clarkson (1.3 million), Rachael Ray (1.2 million), Tamron Hall (1.1 million) and Jerry Springer’s former security guard Steve Wilkos (1.1 million),” the NYT added.

Find out what she said about those allegations of her behavior when she returned for the show’s new season.

At the same time, Ellen just inked a huge deal with a different channel. Find out what she’s doing!
