Ellen DeGeneres the new CoverGirl

Ellen DeGeneresEllen DeGeneres, 50, is joining the ranks of supermodels, singers and actresses such as Christie Brinkley (the original face of CoverGirl, recently rehired to endorse the company’s new line of products aimed at older women), Rihanna and Drew Barrymore by becoming the new face of CoverGirl makeup. The newly-married openly gay talk show host is “shooting the campaign this week,” a spy told pagesix.com. “She must have gotten at least $1 million for it.” DeGeneres, who receives a fat paycheck for her show, also has an endorsement deal with American Express.

    Wow. A perfect choice. 50, appealing, fun and down to earth. Good for Ellen.

    Ewww…. ugly lesbian the new face of Covergirl. Not cool!!! They should ask someone hotter to be the covergirl… like Charlize Theron 🙂

    I think that you are a single minded person Sam. You don’t have any right to judge Ellen. I think good for her.

    I think it is good that Covergirl portrays women of different ages wearing their products because we all know how impossible it is to achieve “perfect” skin. We All age and our skin will eventually wrinkle. Cosmetics are not only worn by those under 40!

    And you have the right to judge me, Crystal? Think before you state something!!!

    Ronna,
    Woman come in all sorts of packages whether they are young, mature, thin, or with a few extra pounds, gay or straight…beauty is a variety of flowers not just a single rose. Thank god the executes of Covergirl aren’t as narrowminded as some individuals out there. Way to go Covergirl and “you go Ellen!!” (Looks like Dove’s Beauty campaign is making waves in the beauty industry)

    you guys are weirdos

    come on, Sam, look at your comment, which doesn’t bear repeating.
    maybe you should think before you state something like that.
    Obviously that kinda comment will, as you no doubt foresaw, spark comments such as Crystal’s.
    so, go ahead, say it (if you feel you must) but this “wounded puppy” attitude – not cool.

    eh ehhmmm!!

  10. Whatever • September 11, 2008 @ 7:32 PM

    sam just likes charlize theron better…………

  11. Patricia • September 12, 2008 @ 9:34 AM

    Sam, women like you are the reason that young girls are starving themselves and getting plastic surgery…..I hope to God you never have a daughter….

    I definitely wouldn’t have picked Ellen. Even thought I like her…. she is pretty butch… c’mon!

  13. Monique • September 12, 2008 @ 12:08 PM

    I wouldn’t have picked Ellen either…and not because she’s gay…but because she’s more of a tom boy then a girl. Ellen, to me, seems like a lady who would rather play sports and muck around then sit in front of a mirror puting on make up and doing her hair!
    Make-up is girly girl stuff.
    If they wanted to venture into lesbian ground, then I would have chosen Melissa Etheridge or Cynthia Nixon or Jody Foster instead.

  14. Shae • September 12, 2008 @ 1:16 PM

    I agree with Patricia,

    It’s what Ellen represents, people ! She is a strong, independant, smart funny woman who radiates confidance. She may not be the ultimate beauty queen, but the women that buy Covergirl products aren’t either.

    The fact that we, as a society of hopefully smart women , rely upon these so-called role models like charleze theron to determine our worth , is indeed sad . We need to treat ourselves better, as well as future generations . Any thoughts, girls???

  15. Nancy • September 12, 2008 @ 6:41 PM

    My thought…is that maybe Sam is a guy! But, someone else assumed Sam was a female. Either way, it doesn’t matter to me, I just found it odd that someone jumped to the conclusion that Sam was female.

  16. tributegirl • September 12, 2008 @ 7:10 PM

    I automatically thought Sam was a male.
    I totally agree with Monique’s comment.

  17. Anonymous • September 13, 2008 @ 7:57 PM

    shae here…yeah i never thought that Sam might be a guy . Somehow the notion that a small minded comment like Sam’s would only be excused coming from a guy….hmmm

  18. Jo-Anne. • September 14, 2008 @ 3:36 PM

    great comment, Anonymous (7:57 p.m.)

  19. Nancy • September 16, 2008 @ 5:26 PM

    I never said the comment should be excused. But Sam is entitled to her/his opinion as everyone else is and if she/he thinks Ellen is old and wrinkley and Charlize should have the job instead, then so be it. Not that I agree with Sam but to each their own.
