Ellen's adventures. (the Buzz).

"I'VE BEEN HAVING THOUGHTS and feelings," Ellen DeGeneres told packed crowds at small venues in Los Angeles, where she's been trying out new stand-up material before she heads out on tour for the summer. "I thought about going to a therapist. And then I thought, Why would I pay money to have someone listen to me talk when I can get other people to pay money to listen to me talk?" That may also explain DeGeneres's latest television venture: a syndicated daytime talk show tentatively scheduled to debut in the fall of next year. Also next year, listen for Ellen in a new computer-animated film from Disney and Pixar, giving voice to a comic sidekick in Finding Nemo, an underwater adventure about fish, set in the Great Barrier Reef. Even if The Ellen Show really is expelled (CBS still won't say), DeGeneres, it seems, will remain in school.
