TV's Top 5!: Is it too soon to make jokes about Anna Nicole?
Notwithstanding her upcoming gig as the host of the Academy Awards broadcast, Ellen is on a roll. Wearing her New Orleans roots with pride, it was only fitting that she celebrate in true Mardi Gras style on yesterday's Ellen and who better invite to her show than fellow native Harry Connick, Jr.
What she wasn't ready for was his shocking admission of paternity...
But this brings us to an interesting dilemma? Is it too soon to joke about Anna Nicole? Or does this mark our healing process (if there is such a point). Must we wait for Britney to go on Saturday Night Live dressed as a bald eagle for us to be able to laugh with her? Possibly so, but I think this is a step in a good direction. Although Ellen looked a bit uncomfortable, Harry's indirect suggestion was let's not harp on every detail that is bestowed upon the media, take a step back and appreciate that at the end of the day we can appreciate our ability to laugh and find humor in the darkest situations. Well said Harry, even if you didn't really say it.
