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.

Acid Attack Survivor Finds Love – and a Job as a TV News Anchor

Indian Acid Attack Survivor Finds Love – and a Job as a TV News Anchor

Eight years ago, when a spurned suitor threw acid on her face, Laxmi thought her life was over. Finding love and achieving her dream of a career in television seemed impossible.

But on March 4, honored by First Lady Michelle Obama with the International Women of Courage Award, Laxmi talked about her struggle – and triumph.

Referring to the man who attacked her when she was 16 after she refused his advances – he was jailed for what he did but apparently his sentence will soon be up – she read a poem she composed: "You haven't thrown acid on my face, you threw it on my dreams ... The time will be burdened for you. Then you will know that I am alive, free and thriving and living my dreams."

The petite 23-year-old has undergone a dozen operations to repair the disfiguring burns on her face and body. For years she felt suicidal. A second blow was the death of her beloved father, who sank into depression over his daughter's agony. Eventually she emerged from her despair with a determination to prevent other women from suffering a similar fate.

Michelle Obama Visits Tonight Show, Plays Along with Cross-Dressing Jimmy Fallon, Will Ferrell

Originally posted 02/21/2014 09:15AM

Jimmy Fallon is wrapping up his first week as host of The Tonight Show with some major guests and serious laughs.

On Thursday night, Michelle Obama joined Fallon for a segment called "Ew!" Taking on the persona – and braces – of a 'tween girl named Sara, the host welcomed a cross-dressed Will Ferrell and FLOTUS to talk about things that make them go "Ew!"

Daddy long legs, dorky stepdads and jelly doughnuts all made the list of valley girl no-nos, but when the "young ladies" tried to poo-poo exercise, Mrs. Obama had something to say.

Watch 5 of Jimmy Fallon's Most Popular Late Night Moments, from Hashtags to Mom-Dancing

Originally posted 02/17/2014 02:15PM

What do mom-dancing, hashtags and children's instruments have in common? They're all topics that Jimmy Fallon, with his one-of-a-kind ingenuity and enthusiasm, was able to mine for big laughs – and, once they hit the Web, big views.

Possibly more than any other show, Fallon's Late Night understood the science of making comedy bits go viral. The formula was easy to explain, but hard to master: Take a celebrity, give him or her a trending topic and find a cutesy, nostalgic spin, then hopefully watch the views roll in.

In honor of Fallon's assumption of the Tonight Show throne Monday night, enjoy this side-splitting collection of some of his most-viewed sketches:
