The Time that Kate Hudson Stalked Gwyneth Paltrow in a Mall

It was a family affair on The Ellen Show as Kate Hudson and mom Goldie Hawn took over hosting duties to interview Gwyneth Paltrow!

Gwyneth dished the details of her unusual honeymoon with her husband and children – and ex-husband – before Kate chimed in with the awkward story of her first time meeting Gwyneth.

"I didn't really meet her, I just sort of stalked her. I was still in high school, and there was this store called Tracey Ross; me and my best friend, Sarah Foster, were shopping and there were only two other girls in there, and it was Gwyneth and Wynona [Ryder]. I said 'Hey!' and they were like, 'Hi!' and that was it."

Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin's Real-Life Friendships

Also this week, Jane Fonda sat down with Jimmy Kimmel to discuss their one-of-a-kind friendship with Lily Tomlin.

"I am fascinated with her. Someone asks a question and I get ready to answer it really boring, and she always says something really funny."

Tomlin later dished on her partnership with legendary comedian Richard Pryor.

"As soon as I got a special, I said, 'Well, I want Richard Pryor to be on this special' ... He said 'Okay, we'll spend the day together.' He challenged me to go to a porno movie, and I said, 'I'll go, but I'll pay my own way.'"

Ellen DeGeneres issued an apology to the world during her opening monologue for season 18 of her daytime talk show. The comedian had a lot to address concerning the "toxic environment" that former employees had spoken out about. Along with the apology, DeGeneres explained the future of the show and made a big announcement.

DeGeneres first became the center of controversy towards the beginning of quarantine when she hired a new production staff to help her create at-home content while many of her employees remained furloughed. It was around mid-April that crew members spoke out about their frustrations. They went weeks without knowing if they would still receive payments from the show which was still airing content. Communication between crews and the network was little to none.

Following this scuffle, former employees began to come forward online, calling the show a "toxic environment." This was surprising to hear, considering Ellen's motto has always been "be kind."

Soon after, executive producers Andy Lassner, Mary Connelly, and Ed Glavin all parted ways with the studio, amidst a sexual harassment investigation.

Today, for the first time in months, Ellen returned to the studio to kick off season 18 of The Ellen Show.

In her opening monologue she stated:

"As you may have heard, this summer there were allegations of a toxic work environment at our show and then there was an investigation. I learned that things happened here that never should have happened. I take that every seriously and I want to say I am so sorry to the people that were affected. I know that I am in a position of privilege and power, and with that ,comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show."

As for her character, she had this to say:

"The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things. Sometimes I get sad...I get mad, I get anxious, I get frustrated, I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress."

DeGeneres then shifted the spotlight over to show contributor Twitch. In the past, Twitch had served as DJ and a featured voice on the show, along with being Ellen's friend of course. Degeneres announced that Twitch will now be stepping up as her new co-executive producer.

'The Ellen Show' has been on air since 2003 and has just begun its 18th season on NBC.
