So yeah all right yeah I serious personal question I -- so I guess it never told my coming out story which isn't it really that interesting about. Shall we share -- quickly. Yeah followed by some advice. It's a low seventeen year old I mean that's pretty brave of him to reach out asking that we have to go back to the fall of 1998 Elizabeth politic has backed him what was happening -- -- 1988 I -- his life I was eighteen years old now is drive in my Ford Bronco -- I had spiked hair with bleached tips off. -- favorites. Driving home to my this announcement comedy has announced tell Milan junior year I tell our -- knew this was gonna be today. You got a son was on the radio at the time but in sync was that downside big back tonight and if I was doing. In sinker for I was doing eight I could enlist in listing in sync actual or. I probably was listening to instinct can now take this in the myself in your drive there are you nervous I'm driving you know I told my sister the day before. So I am doing this it's fine. I knew what I -- I knew I was gay wasn't that you know and it was time for them to know -- very close with my parents I get home. That's Obama says mom and gain she said no you're not Minnesota can leading -- I had my head like OK if they say knowing where where is gonna go an idea of us. And she said that she set against it talk he gave me to count has had a lot to you all so we need to tell your time. Very dramatic action and some of them we dumbed down I didn't he's very religious man and he said god works so just like the other day may be your day Amanda and that's what he has that he said and then we ordered Chinese student and an awkward dinner and that was it but here's what I'll tell you for the most part I had a very good coming out experience. However you have to remember that. You coming out is going to be an adjustment for everyone not just -- and so people had different expectations have you. And when those expectations change this is an adjustment process for them. In your parents most likely to have been had never been through this before so they meet may need some time to digest what you just told them and you need to give them that time. And I came out to my Stanley fifteen years ago and I have the most supportive and loving family and each child you don't want to have a great family and they love yeah is no matter -- right but there were definitely growing pains during that process. Now all my family wants from me is to find a nice guy settled down bring him home for the holidays the only problem is that I have commitment issues that's probably never gonna happen but I tell you every time I talked to my grandmother. -- -- -- -- and I not knowing exactly that's all they want I. I I think it's very profound -- use say that that the expectations have changed because in our society and in this started to change assure -- our age are having children. They're thought was probably the you're going to get married to a woman -- have to kids yeah they'd have grandkids and so all of that van. Changed in their -- -- granite. Nowadays Tony thirteen yo kids could happen and all that can be possible. But back then in 1990 days and expect that exactly that's what their expectations Virginia if you look at my mother. When I first told her to where she is now you know it's like. It's a totally different person and not just a time in his education it's understanding here's my advice for you. Be honest with you parents give them time to adjust. And never forget that you are normal in your gonna be okay. And -- only gonna be the best you can be when you're truly being who you are voting oh that's does this process is all about innocence on time. And I grew through the process to 'cause once you come out you got to find your way as well you don't know what this is all ballots and you're also becoming. A new person so did you feel better after you told them it was funny I felt the yeah I was like -- And I remember going out with my friends that 99 it's all on the yeah. There was great and I came home that night my mother came downstairs she's like. You know you're gonna she was still very upset about it and she's like I just don't know you know you sure and all this stuff and I'm like -- And that was the process that you had to go through -- -- you now. Letting her know European that's the other thing the appearance only want you to be happy. And safe. And you know they don't want anything in the world to ever for sure harm you and I think when you say I'm gonna be -- they were you might. Yeah -- you mean she earned her 'cause that you chose that term -- and so that's really their probably their only concern it's not so much that you said that your game that they are upset with it's that they worry approach because they never did not love you never. Whenever I have time to process that -- so powerful love this to know that your parents and your family life here than you can do these are things and then when I came out on the radio you know it's like. My whole family was there to support me for that -- you know sheriff had to have that support system -- There you -- I hope that that helps you a little bit and gives you some advice a little a seventeen year old could nasty and I don't hear that no one else has asked and a funny now I've we've never really talked about it on the show listening now aren't. Well now we know we know that eighty it was your favorites I NN I today each tips can you believe -- had all the banks that changed. Kindle is -- 717 on the mix.

Ellen vs. Matt Escalates
We're at war, people. Well, it's an early morning versus daytime war, between Matt Lauer and Ellen DeGeneres. The most recent salvo is Matt's. This comes after Ellen started jazzing up Matt's mornings with some racy Photoshopped clips. Matt retaliated by filling Ellen's car with 20,000 ping pong balls. Ellen sent her viewers to Rockefeller Plaza to test for Matt's tickle points. And now, Matt paid to have billboards erected around Los Angeles, showing Ellen as a plumber, butt-crack and all. Funny stuff. Even Ellen thinks so. No telling what will be next though... Look what I saw on my way to work today. Good one, @MLauer. #MattsRevenge pic.twitter.com/8QCUw5wqJM — Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) April 16, 2015

Referee Trip & Fall Makes Highlight Reel
It's always funny to see someone take a fall - as long as the only thing hurt is a guy's ego, right? The other night, NBA referee Joey Crawford took a center-court face-plant during the Toronto Raptors home game against the Charlotte Hornets. It's tough to tell what he did - probably tripped over his own feet - but he did make a nice headfirst slide. What better way to watch than with a continuous Vine, right?

On Interstate 30 in Garland, a tire blew out and caused a fire. Everyone got out safely, but Hillary lost many of her personal belongings. Scary moments indeed. Glad to hear everyone's okay though.

50 Shades of... Wait! What Did You Do to Your Hair?
Dakota Johnson is between films right now. She completed 50 Shades of Grey and was just about everywhere on the promotional tour. And the word in the industry is that the sequel will start shooting fairly soon. So what's up with the new haircut? What has become her trademark Anastasia Steele long brown hair is now a bob. Boom. Let's hope she had permission. Check out the report from MM1 News. The read by the robotic and accented voice makes it almost hilarious.

The Force Continues to Awake...
Another official trailer is out for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, coming to theaters in December. In this one, Luke narrates over a variety of images - "The force is strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. My sister has it. You have that power too." No one's saying who that you is - but I guess that's why they call this a teaser. It's great to see Han and Chewbacca ever so briefly at the end. I'm ready. How about you?

What's Going On at ESPN?
Seems like the folks who work at ESPN need to learn to keep their thoughts to themselves. You'll remember Keith Olberman got in some trouble not too long ago for tweets he made about Penn State and a fundraising effort there. Now ESPN reporter Britt McHenry got herself suspended for launching a tirade against a tow company's employee. It's pretty nasty - if you want to watch it, you'll have to go to this link - but don't do it at work. Britt apologized, but too little too late. She'll be off the air for a week. Others are calling for her to be let go entirely. What do you think?   In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and (cont) http://t.co/Wx37XF2QtM — Britt McHenry (@BrittMcHenry) April 16, 2015

The Newest Avenger
Ellen DeGeneres breaks another Hollywood secret. This time, it's all about the newest Avenger - the Honker. Okay, it's Ellen, inserting herself into the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron as a joke-telling horn-honking superhero standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, The Hulk and the rest of the gang. This could make the movie even more interesting, don't you think?

Hard Enough to Play Real Drums...
It takes years to learn to play the drums. Even longer if you want to play them well. Imagine how much more difficult it must be to play the drums well if you're a marionette. Well, if you're the puppeteer manipulating the marionette, and the marionette is playing a drum set made of tin cans. And the marionette has to keep up with Rush's classic "Tom Sawyer." Impossible, you say? Think again and witness... It's pretty cool what's happening in this video.

Ah, Yes, the Buckingham Banana Peel!
The royal guards stationed outside Buckingham Palace in London are famous for their crisp movements and fierce focus. Tourists try all the time to get them to laugh - even just to crack a smile - to no avail. Which makes what happened on Tuesday even funnier. During a routine changing of the guard, one soldier somehow managed to slip and fall while shifting to one side. He got up quickly, but he was smiling a bit. He stopped very quickly, but it was caught on someone's cell phone - of course - and now it's gone viral. Have a look...

Carpool Karaoke, the Latest Craze
James Corden is starting off strong in his new gig on CBS's Late Late Show. Strong guests, strong performances, and strong skits. Like this one, where he's carpooling with Jennifer Hudson. When songs come on the radio, they have no choice but to sing along, now do they? And when they pull in to a drive-through, why not let Jennifer Hudson sing the order for you? All that and more. Funny stuff.

Josh & Kelly Team Up for Phantom Duet
If you're a fan of musical theater, you're of course familiar with Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera and one of its more beautiful tunes, "All I Ask of You." It's a haunting tune, really, and somewhat operatic. Enter Josh Groban and his new album, "Stages" - his salute to musical theater. He tackles the role of Raoul, opposite Kelly Clarkson's Christine. This is not your typical Phantom, and there's not a thing wrong with that. Give a listen.

The Epitome of TMI
Okay, maybe E! is starting to reach on its reality shows. Their show, Botched, features plastic surgery nightmares. And last night's season premiere focused on Tiffany Pollard, the self-professed queen of reality TV. The star of VH1's Flavor of Love decided to get breast augmentation surgery when she hit the big time - no pun intended - inspired by Dolly Parton. She's none too happy about the outcome, and of course, being the queen of reality TV, she doesn't mind sharing her story. I'm sort of wishing she hadn't...

Hail to You, Robin Williams
Jamie Costa is a comic/ actor from South Carolina. He's making a name for himself with celebrity impressions. And this week, he released a reel of impressions of Robin Williams in a variety of roles. Twenty of them, to be precise - from Mork to Teddy Roosevelt and many others in between. He calls it his "tribute to the man whose spark ignited my passion." Pretty good work, if I do get to pass judgment...

Oh No Pokemon Didn't...
File this one under Seriously? A number of websites are reporting that the Creflo Dollar Ministries - that's a guy's name, by the way - has conducted a study that determined that Pokemon, the cartoon of the 80s and 90s, pointed children who were teenagers in that era toward homosexuality. The quote most often seen: teens ”had their sexuality warped by Ash and his fruity friends.” How about that? And here I thought it was Tinky Winky the Purple Teletubby who was responsible for turning kids gay...

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished
Jake Caputo's a man with an idea. He tweeted out a message to the world asking people what they'd pay for a standalone HBO streaming service. He even set up a website in 2012 called takemymoneyhbo.com. And it looks like HBO was listening. And now they're ready to talk seriously with Jake - and take his money. Who better to collect, than Paulie Walnuts and Big Pussy from The Sopranos, am I right? Check out this promo!

Cookie Meets Cookie
When Taraji P. Henson hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, some writer had a stroke of genius. Insert her character from Empire - Cookie Lyon - into a show that already had a character named Cookie - Sesame Street. The result is pretty brilliant, with a new Cookie Monster shaking thinkgs up on the street we all know and love.

Them's Fightin' Words
It didn't take long for Hillary Clinton's potential Republican opponents to come out swinging after her Sunday announcement that she'll be running for President on the Democratic side. Rand Paul published a slickly-done apocalyptic message, warning about what would happen if Hillary weren't defeated. Very Orwellian, or Hunger Games, or something like that. Check out the picture they use of Hillary at about the 10-second mark. Does she remind you a bit of Auntie Em from The Wizard of Oz?

How Yucky Was It?
Coachella's known for having some weird things happen. Could be the weirdest thing happened this weekend, when Madonna shared the stage - and more - with Drake. In the middle of a song, Madonna grabbed the seated Drake's head, tilted it back and locked lips big time. We're not talking a peck here, or a friendly little kiss. No, it was more like mouth-to-mouth. And when it was done, Drake doesn't look any too happy. Check out the video... and be sure to listen for Drake's heavily-bleeped response...

The Kardashian Invasion Continues
Kim and Khloe Kardashian continued their whirlwind tour of Mother Armenia - that's what they're calling it. They met with the Prime Minister of Armenia, because, as you know, they are quite important Armenian American dignitaries. At some point, Kim spotted an elderly woman in the crowd. According to the story, the woman had been waiting for 12 hours to meet the Kardashians, leaning on her cane the whole while. No word from the woman if she thought Kim's hug was worth the wait.     It was an honor to meet the Prime Minister of Armenia, Hovik Abrahamyan who expressed how proud they are that we are proud Armenians and we have not forgotten our roots! #NeverForget A photo posted by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on Apr 9, 2015 at 9:33pm PDT

Something Bugging You?
Seems like Hollywood is cranking out every Marvel comic character in the library. Next up: Ant Man, starring Paul Rudd. Paul plays a thief turned hero who's able to shrink in size and increase in strength and speed. And of course, he has to save the world. Otherwise, what's the point? And having Michael Douglas on board as the scientist who makes Ant Man possible - that's just a bonus.

Pink Puts the Haters in Their Place
People think it's okay to take shots at anyone for anything. On Saturday night, Pink went to a benefit to celebrate a friend's recognition "for her tireless efforts and stellar contributions to the eradication of cancer." But all people could tweet about was Pink and her black dress and how she looked fat. Pink took it in stride and issued the most polite "shut up" in history. "While I admit that that dress didn't photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty. In fact, I feel beautiful. So, my good and concerned peoples, please don't worry about me. I'm not worried about me. And I'm not worried about you either:)… I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off. Thanks for your concern. Love, cheesecake."    And then a little frosting on the cake...   and my hubby says "it's just more to love baby" (and then I smack his hand off my booty cause we're in a supermarket) pic.twitter.com/Mnd6PIoKhK — P!nk (@Pink) April 13, 2015

"I've Been Trying to Teach Him to Blend In"
I've got to admit it. When I heard they were making a new Terminator movie that included Arnold Schwarzenegger, I wasn't expecting much. I mean, the guy's 67, and the original Terminator came out over 30 years ago. But watching this trailer for Terminator: Genisys, I might have to change my mind. Some mind-boggling time-travel sci fi here, but the moment when now-Schwarzenegger goes toe-to-toe with then-Schwarzenegger could be worth the price of admission. Who's with me?

Watching It Live Takes the Glamor Away
Every time you see a glamorous photo, don't you think how cool it must be to be a celebrity on the red carpet of some posh event? Look at the photo of Jennifer Lopez that's part of this blog. It was taken on the runway of last night's MTV Movie Awards. Breezy, serious, all-business but stylish too. Now watch the footage of her as that shot and a whole bunch of others are snapped. Poor woman must need a break by the end of it all. And she still has a whole awards show to sit through...   Jennifer Lopez 2015 MTV Movie Awards by maximotv
