ELLEN’S VIDEO PRANK GOES VIRAL!
Multi-hyphenate, Ellen DeGeneres, always knows how to get a good laugh — sometimes at the expense of her closest friends and family. The comedienne/daytime host posted a video on Facebook of her beautiful wife, Portia de Rossi, getting physical while emulating moves from one of Jane Fonda’s iconic 1980’s fitness videos. Unfortunately, de Rossi’s hadn’t realized that she was being filmed! Commenting on her post DeGeneres wrote, “Portia said it was okay if I watched her do her Jane Fonda workout. She didn’t say anything about filming it and putting it on Facebook.” De Rossi responded via Twitter, “Can’t a girl do a little @Janefonda Low-Impact workout in Peace??!”
The smooth moves, however, are quite timely, as Fonda re-releases her five most popular VHS tapes on DVD and digital download on Tuesday. Credited for producing the best selling fitness videos of all time, with twenty-two titles and sales of more than seventeen million copies, Fonda, 72, shares, “People always tell me how the Workout changed their lives and ask why we never released the original titles on DVD.” Adding, “Even recently Michael Strahan revealed that he used the workout tapes to, as he said, literally work his butt off, and credited them with his becoming conscious of the importance of working out.”
