Sports Illustrated cover girl Kate Upton is all the rage this week after the magazine's annual swimsuit issue mega-unveiling, so naturally, her love life is in focus.

Leave it to Ellen DeGeneres to get to the bottom of one recent rumor.

The talk show host got straight to the point by asking stating, "Your boyfriend, New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. How does he feel about this?"

"I did not have a Valentine's date this year," Kate Upton, 19, responded. Ellen was unfazed by that seemingly implausible, evasive response, continuing:

"OK, so he was busy ... So how does your boyfriend Mark Sanchez feel about all this whole Sports Illustrated cover thing? He must be proud, right?"

"Well, even if I had a boyfriend. I wouldn't ask how he felt about it," Kate said, persistently dodging Ellen's questions. But again, it didn't end there.

"He would just tell you though, right? Has he told you? Your boyfriend Mark Sanchez? I'm just guessing that it's him. Is it him?" DeGeneres asked.

No response. Kate then asked Ellen if she wants Mark to be her boyfriend, which she point-blank replied, "Yeah... He's cute. Don't you think he's cute?"

Kate finally caved, a little, adding, "Yeah, he is cute," and explained that she met him years ago through her sister that works for the New York Jets.

That was enough for Ellen, who concluded: "She's dating Mark Sanchez." Maybe. But if she isn't, we doubt she'll be alone next Valentine's Day.

That's it. We are gonna have to boycott Ellen DeGeneres after all.

Not because she's the spokesperson for JC Penney, of course, nor because she's a homosexual. But because the talk show host interviewed Bruce and Kris Jenner on air today, actually treating the topic of their daughter's marriage to Kris Humphries like a legitimate story.

"I trust my kids and we give them a lot of support," Kris Jenner said. "As a mom you want your kids to be really happy. What makes them happy makes us happy. It's our job to support them, so I don't question some of their decisions."

This same nonsense went on for a couple minutes, with Ellen even saying at one point it "must be hard" to be Kim these days. At least we assume she was talking about Kim; she may have been referring to Ray J's penis when he was having sex with Kim on tape.

Ellen DeGeneres and Bill O'Reilly on the same side of an issue? Yes, folks, anything is possible.

This pair of seemingly opposite celebrities came together this week in light of an organization known as One Million Moms pushing to get Ellen fired as the JC Penney spokesperson, with the Fox News anchor referring to the protest as un-American and, simply, wrong.

Ellen also commented on the flap during a monologue this week, and then took a few moments later to express gratitude to O'Reilly. Watch her do so below:

Ellen DeGeneres was recently named a spokesperson for JC Penney.

Once this news broke, a conservative organization known as One Million Moms quickly launched an offensive to get the comedian fired from the gig. Bill O'Reilly addressed this topic on Fox News last night, taking the side that anyone is free to simply not shop at JC Penney... but to lobby for Ellen's ousting is un-American and wrong.

DeGeneres also touched on the scandal during her talk show monologue, keeping it short, but relying on two points:

  1. A number of comments left on the One Million Moms' own Facebook page are in support of JC Penney and express their authors' intention to shop there even more now.
  2. Have a problem with Ellen's "traditional values," as the group claims citizens should? Here they are: Honesty. Quality. Kindness. Compassion.

It's a witch hunt.

That's what Bill O'Reilly has to say about the movement by One Million Moms - a conservative organization, from which no member agreed to appear on Fox News last night - to pressure JC Penney into firing its new spokesperson, Ellen DeGeneres.

The group takes issue with Ellen being an openly gay celebrity, as O'Reilly Factor guest Sandy Rios defended its actions by saying "people that believe marriage is between a man and woman and children should not be exposed to propagandized homosexuality."

O'Reilly response? That's fine. Don't shop at JC Penney then. But to actively push for a private company to fire an American citizen based on her lifestyle? That's just wrong. It's McCarthyism. Watch the segment below and then express your opinion:

Should JC Penney fire Ellen DeGeneres?

First Lady Michelle Obama talks the talk and walks the walk.

When the 48-year-old campaigns for the importance of health and physical fitness, she leads by example, as she proved today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in L.A.

Michelle Obama accepted a bold challenge by DeGeneres to see who could do the most push-ups, with both women flinging off their dress coats on the spot.

Who won? Watch the video here and see!

“How many was that for her?” asked DeGeneres after tapping out early (but by no means embarrassingly early) and both women had finished. “Twenty five?”

“I just stopped,” said the smiling First Lady.

Sorry Ellen. On the bright side, you hung in there for a while, and there's no way Jay Leno (whose show Michelle visited Tuesday) could do even one.

This is one of the funniest, sweetest, most honest videos you'll ever see of a celebrity.

During an appearance on Ellen this week, House of Lies star Kristen Bell first explains that she's often an emotional wreck; if she gets remotely sad or happy - say, below a level three or above a seven - the tears simply flow.

She then goes to detail one example of just such blubbery: when boyfriend Dax Shepard presented her with a sloth for her 31st birthday last summer, an event/breakdown actually captured on camera, snippets of which are shared in the following clip.

It's both hilarious and sort of touching. Watch now and fall even more in love with the gorgeous actress:

Cutest happy birthday greetings ever?

Darn close if not. Ellen DeGeneres celebrated her 54th on Thursday and to mark the big occasion, Pink sent in a video message to her friend the talk show host.

With daughter Willow in tow!

"Hi Ellen. I love you, I love you, I love you," she said from her yard. "I wish you this year freedom, love, laughter, sleeping in late, getting lots of rest."

From there, the singer went inside, where adorable 8-month-old daughter Willow (dad is husband Carey Hart) was waiting to say hello. Awww!

Courtney Robertson has Ben Flajnik wrapped around her finger on The Bachelor, according to viewer Ellen DeGeneres, who bluntly told Ben as much today.

If you missed Monday's episode, you missed a good two hours of drama, tears and Courtney pursing her lips and doing whatever it takes to get her way.

Ellen seemed to catch on, and she had a few words for Ben Flajnik regarding that model from Santa Monica who doesn't seem to be popular with fans:

"She manipulated you to try and get that rose. She said, 'Oh, I don't know how I feel.' Then you went and got the rose and gave it to her. That was not right."

Judging by the applause, the audience agreed with Ellen, who added:

"She may be a lovely person and you're probably engaged to her, but the thing is, the way that it was edited she came off not nice, and I could be wrong."

"I know it's not fair to judge someone like that, but she was just playing you... man. She was playing you. Saying all the things you wanted to hear."

Damn, son. Ben can't reveal much, of course, but did admit it would have been nice to have a mole telling him what went on in the mansion. Ellen's response:

"All right, I'm going to find you a nice girl because that didn't work."

As for her comment that Ben is "probably engaged to her," see our Bachelor spoilers page for what sources are saying about the season's endgame.

Mere hours after Heidi Klum and Seal confirmed their divorce, interviews between Seal and Ellen DeGeneres (airing today) and PBS' Tavis Smiley (Friday) hit the web.

The topic of his separation was not off the table. Not even close.

About to embark on a new album tour, Seal is more than willing to openly speak about what shocked us - and himself, apparently. "I think we were shocked," he said.

"You go into these things with the greatest intentions when you say 'I do' and you say ''Till death do us part.' Those vows hold value," the singer told Ellen.

"They are not just words. These things happen. We pretty much said how we feel and made it clear in the release statement."

"But, for intents and purposes of this show, you just grow apart after awhile. You try and you work through it and the thing that you quickly realize when you are married and you become a parent is you do the best that you can."

"It makes you actually appreciate your parents a lot more."
