Report: Caitlyn Jenner slams Ellen DeGeneres in tell-all

  Report: Caitlyn Jenner slams Ellen DeGeneres in tell-all Caitlyn Jenner thinks Ellen DeGeneres "alienated" her from the LGBTQ community.  The 67-year-old TV star - who was known as Bruce Jenner before she underwent a gender reassignment - admitted to the talk show host in 2015 that she had been hesitant to accept gay marriage in the past, prompting Ellen to describe her guest's views as "confusing" in a later interview with Howard Stern.

After asking Wendy ’ s asking how many retweets he needs for a year’s supply of free chicken nuggets , the fast food chain responded with the seemingly arbitrary number 18 million—nearly 15 million more than the record Ellen DeGeneres currently holds for her “This kid is on my heels,” DeGeneres says.

A plucky 16-year-old named Carter Wilkerson is poised to eclipse Ellen DeGeneres’s Twitter milestone thanks to a plea for free Wendy’s chicken nuggets that vent viral — and now the daytime talk show host wants to broker a deal to keep her tweet in the record books. 

As you may recall, two weeks ago, Wilkerson hatched a plan to get free nuggets for a year:

18 million retweets is a potentially unattainable social media goal, but so far he’s racked up 3.1 million, which is just a few hundred thousand RTs short of breaking Ellen’s Oscars selfie record.

Last week, Ellen filmed a  PSA-style segment with Bradley Cooper to encourage her fans to retweet her famous selfie. And this week, she decided to invite Wilkinson on her show to talk about a potential tweet war truce: 

In the clip, Ellen pitches her idea: “I want people to retweet you, but when they retweet him, you must retweet my selfie as well.” To sweeten the pot, DeGeneres offers Wilkinson a flat screen TV and a year’s worth of Ellen-branded underwear. After the kid agrees to the plan to help Ellen’s tweet, she tells him: “If somehow you pass me, Carter, I will come to your house, I will take that TV back, I will take the underwear back, and do more.” Only time will tell if Ellen’s plan will pan out.

Although he’s now officially a bona fide social media star, Wilkerson insists that he didn’t launch this campaign with viral fame in mind. The kid explains: “Honestly, I just want chicken nuggets. I just have a love for the chicken nuggets.” 

'Jeopardy' contestant offers hilariously wrong answer .
Unlike other more guess-based game shows (or word games in general), Jeopardy! relies on contestants being able to use their wealth of knowledge to give the right answers and move ahead. Unfortunately for one competitor on Monday night's episode, the category "3+3" (meaning the correct response should be two words, each consisting of three letters) proved to be a stumper. The player in question, Kevin, had buzzed in after his fellow competitor Jamie opted for the $200 answer, and host Alex Trebek read out the words, "A Hired Killer." Kevin's guess, after some thought, was, "Hot gun." Luckily, even though Kevin had given the wrong answer - which he also hadn't framed in the form of a question - there was someone who knew the correct one, as it didn't take long for Jamie to buzz in and ask, "What is a hit man?" tonight's episode of JEOPARDY featured one of my favorite incorrect answers ever pic.twitter.com/w27APtKqnH- Davis. (@realdaveimboden) April 18, 2017 Hopefully Ellen DeGeneres will also be able to helpthis Kevin make up for his -$200 gamble. You can watch the hilarious gaffe above.
