When it came to getting her wife Ellen DeGeneres a 60th birthday present to remember, Portia de Rossi went absolutely wild

Courtney Thompson

For us mere mortals, a nice bag or dinner at a fancy restaurant would do, but when you’re trying to buy a gift for someone who has everything and then some, gift ideas are a little more tricky.

At least, that’s what you’ve got to assume after Portia de Rossi, 45, gave wife Ellen DeGeneres her very own namesake gorilla conservation centre to celebrate her 60th birthday.

And because an elaborate birthday present doesn’t really count unless millions of people know about it, Portia made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to give Ellen the gift.

Introducing the gift, Portia said she wanted to give her something that “represents who you are and what you really care about. And not just now, but what you’ve always cared about. What you were influenced by and what has made you the amazing person that you are today”.

So she made a donation to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund so large that it will fund the creation of a permanent home, the Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, in Rwanda for the organization that protects endangered mountain gorillas.

Dian Fossey (January 16, 1932 – c. December 26, 1985) was an American primatologist and conservationist known for undertaking an extensive study of mountain gorilla groups from 1966 until her death in 1985.

Fifty Three Days In …. “🇵🇷 Puerto Rico’s Storm of Misery 🇵🇷 …. CBS 60 Minutes …. “!!

THE AWFUL AFTERMATH

(I FOUND THE VIDEO)

~AMERICAN CITIZENS IN CRISIS~

Last Sunday, November 5, CBS 60 Minutes reported on the aftermath of Hurricane María. I watched it and my heart continued to sink.

I was looking for the video to share it with you. I found it through Facebook.

Today is the 53rd day after the hurricane hit. 

Progress has been slow and the spotlight of the main stream media has moved on to other events.

Let the video speak for itself!

(I don’t agree with all the provided in the video. The visual are all true).

Puerto Ricans in the island have endured the longest blackout in American history following a direct hit from Hurricane Maria. Due to a multitude of factors, some say the lights won’t be coming back on anytime soon.

It’s safe to say that of all the places in the country, the one that is suffering the most right now is the hurricane-ravaged island of Puerto Rico.

Most people probably don’t think of it as being part of the United States, but the people who live in Puerto Rico certainly do. It’s been a territory since 1898, and its 3.4 million people are U.S. citizens.

For the past 53 days, most of them have been without power, the longest blackout in American history.

FEMA says it has distributed more food and water there than any disaster its ever been involved in. Damages could reach $90 billion and Puerto Rico is already bankrupt. There has been some finger pointing about the speed and effectiveness of the relief and recovery effort, but the misery there has much more to do with nature.

When Hurricane María arrived on the morning of September 20th, it was largely unheralded and never projected to hit the continental United States, which was already suffering hurricane fatigue. But the storm tore into Puerto Rico with sustained winds of 155 miles an hour and then began a slow 12-hour crawl across the countryside, with the center of the storm enveloping the entire island.

“I think the majority of people will hope to have their power up in — in January, maybe February.

I would predict there’s some people on that last mile that are gonna be close to spring or summer before they get those very, very last houses.”

HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN PUERTO RICO

CBS 60 MINUTES OVERTIME

This past Sunday, November 5, CBS Television had a special segment detailing information about many Puerto Ricans, American citizens, having endured the longest blackout in American history following a direct hit from Hurricane María. I’ve been looking for this special on YouTube to share it with you.

The situation in Puerto Rico is still dire. 

It seems that the segment presented in the regular show isn’t available yet. I will keep looking and share it when I find it.

During my search, I found this 60 Minutes Overtime presented on November 5 by Brit McCandless Farmer.

Take a look, please!

Forty-eight days today, after Hurricane María hit the island, ‘60 Minutes‘ found its citizens trying to make do without water or power – and frequently losing hope

Every day and night in San Juan, there are blackouts. But having electricity at all is a privilege, since most of the island is still without power.

“At night, it really quiets down because it’s dark,” says 60 Minutes associate producer Jack Weingart.

“The street lights are out, and most homes and businesses are also dark. So at night, you just hear this constant humming of the generators.”

Weingart, along with producers Graham Messick and Michael Karzis and associate producer Vanessa Fica, recently traveled to Puerto Rico with correspondent Steve Kroft to report this week for 60 Minutes.

As they traveled throughout the island, the dire status on the ground surprised them most.

“It’s really still in an emergency mode,” Karzis says.

“They haven’t graduated into a relief mode or recovery.”

But what does this exodus mean to an already crippled island?  

“It means a territory, which is already fiscally circling the drain, having the tax base erode even further,” Karzis says.

“It does not help that you’re losing otherwise qualified professionals or a labor force that is dwindling. And what you’re left with are folks that are older, and are collecting pensions at this point or young kids.”

Almost seven weeks after the storm, producer Graham Messick says, it feels like some Puerto Ricans have given up.

“They’d lost hope,” he says. “And it’s like a state of suspended animation. People were just waiting for the power to come on. There’s just nothing to do. It’s boring. It’s hot. It’s uncomfortable.”

“And there are no answers. “

The video was produced by Will Croxton. It was edited by Will Croxton and Sarah Shafer Prediger.

Lin-Manuel Miranda gets naked with James Corden for wild Hair musical

As James Corden says:

“It’s one thing to be on a stage, air conditioning, Broadway, lights.

It’s another thing when people are shouting obscenities out of a window at you because they don’t get it.”

This is the high-stakes, make-or-break world of Crosswalk Theater, and Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda got a taste of it.

For the big finale, Corden and Miranda did what no one thought they could do:

dance nude on the crosswalk.

“In the original production of Hair, the entire cast got naked, but both CBS and the state of California told us we can’t be nude in the crosswalk,” Miranda explained.

“Then again, people told me that Alexander Hamilton wasn’t a Puerto Rican rapper with beautiful brown eyes.”

Katy Perry’s Carpool Karaoke with James Corden

The pair sing some of Katy’s biggest hits, talk about her new short hair and her epic fall out with Taylor Swift.

“There’s a situation,” Katy told James. “

Honestly, it’s really like she started it, and it’s time for her to finish it.”

The pop stars fell out years ago, after Katy allegedly stole Taylor’s backing dancers. Taylor’s 2015 hit ‘Bad Blood‘ is said to have been written about Katy, and although she hasn’t confirmed it, Katy’s new single ‘Swish Swish‘ definitely appears to be about Taylor.

The track features Nicki Minaj and includes the lyrics,

“So keep calm, honey, I’ma stick around/For more than a minute, get used to it/Funny my name keeps comin’ outcho mouth/’Cause I stay winning”.

The singer is currently doing promo for her upcoming album Witness, out June 9.

If you often drive past Beverly Boulevard and Genesee Avenue in Los Angeles, you may have been lucky enough to catch James Corden and his Crosswalk Theater Company perform an abridged version of the Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” … in the middle of the road.

If not, don’t fret.

Corden aired the segment featuring some of the stars of the live-action film – Josh Gad, Luke Evans, and Dan Stevens – on his “Late Late Show.”

The three reprised their roles as LeFou, Gaston, and the Beast, respectively, to sing classic songs from the movie, including “Belle,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Gaston,” and “Be Our Guest.”

Mariah Carey, Adele and Gaga Join James Corden for ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ Carpool Karaoke

This special star-studded edition of Carpool Karaoke also includes Chris Martin, Gwen Stefani, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Elton John.

By: Tom Sykes

The endless joy that is The Late Late Show’s Carpool Karaoke has debuted its Christmas Special, which features none other than Mariah Carey singing her celebrated “All I Want for Christmas Is You” with James Corden as their SUV makes its way through the streets of Los Angeles with a Christmas tree tied to the roof—and a heap of perfectly wrapped presents stacked in the back seat.

Carey wears a low-cut red leather jacket while Corden sports an ugly Christmas sweater decorated with snowmen and Santas.

However, there is a treat in store for Carpool Karaoke fans, as the clip cuts in with cameo lines of the same song being performed by some of Corden’s most illustrious guests of 2016, including Elton John, Lady Gaga, Chris Martin, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas, Selena Gomez, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Adele.
