Seriously... I'm Kidding by Ellen Degeneres "Sometimes the biggest things are the most embarrassing." Ellen Degeneres' triumph and upbeat franchise have made her show one of the most popular, enduring, and celebrated daytime TV shows. (It's won no less than 31 Emmys to date.) Seriously... I'm Kidding, Degeneres' first book in eight years, takes us into the life of a woman who has big heart was pulled from American Idol because she didn't want to be mean. Vivid; fun; usually gently absorbed.
