With Michelle Obama traveling to China with her daughters, President Barack Obama is fending for himself in the White House.
Fortunately, the commander-in-chief has a concerned friend eager to check up on him: Ellen DeGeneres, who quizzed the POTUS on his well-being at the First Lady's behest.
"Mr. President, Michelle said she's out of town, and she wanted to know, did you make your bed this morning?" DeGeneres asked via satellite on Thursday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

George Lopez knows his public intoxication arrest is no laughing matter. Still, the comedian couldn't resist making himself the butt of his own jokes on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
"Well, you know, apparently I'm a bigger Justin Bieber fan than I thought I was," Lopez, 52, cracked during Thursday's episode. "But you know how they always say whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but whatever happens in Canada, everybody knows."

Hollywood's biggest night deserved Hollywood's biggest pizza.
And that's what they got: The pizza host Ellen DeGeneres had delivered came via Big Mama's and Papa's Pizzeria, a local franchise that claims to have "the world's largest pizza." It was delivered by a real-life employee, not an actor.

There is a story that Marlon Brando, when agreeing to play Jor-El in the 1978 movie Superman, suggested that he simply supply the voice, while Jor-El on camera would be played by a suitcase or a bagel.
I've sometimes thought this would be a wonderful solution to the annual challenge of finding someone to host the Oscars. Just a bagel and a voice, year after year. It would instill a degree of ritual and mystery while also saving on production and styling costs. It would be like Her, only it would be a carbohydrate.
However, for now, the Academy needs to keep Ellen DeGeneres on the short list of stars who really know how to manage this glamorous beast.
