Dear Ellen (letter 15): We’re Gonna Find It

August 11, 2010 · 73 comments

Hello Ellen. I’d like to take a look at the upcoming season and perhaps solidify a date when I might be able to slip in there and see you…and your audience…and your 20 million viewers…and maybe Mama. Last year, due to trouble connecting, I was unable to make it and this year I have a feeling I’ll be available. My schedule is really starting to clear up.

Also, I noticed you like up and coming talent. I often see undiscovered stars you’ve found on youtube. I LOVE Greyson Chance and his rendition of Poker Face and I thought it was adorable that he got to come on your show and perform. What a sweetie pie. That’s really great for him.

Did I also catch wind that you’ve started your own record label Ellen? And that you’ve been signing on some of the young talent you’ve been finding on Youtube? I think that’s awesome!

I mean really great.

It has not crossed my mind that maybe these youngsters don’t even realize what it means for you to be reaching out to them. I don’t spend much time thinking about how they have their whole lives ahead of them to make careers for themselves and how there are women across the land who maybe feel trapped…ahem…at home with little ones…who maybe don’t even know who they are anymore after sacrificing every piece of themselves for the good of their family…who would possibly give their first born child for just a moment on your couch. I don’t think about any of that stuff, rather I love what you’re doing for the children. The hope and joy you bring to their lives by exposing their talent to the world is truly remarkable.

This idea to develop your own record company is genius! It only makes sense that you would choose to go in that direction after dominating day time television for so long and I like that you’re honing in on the “untouched” Youtube stars.

You know what else is “untouched” Ellen? The lip syncing industry. I mean, is there even such a thing? You could be a catalyst…a pioneer. Just think of the storm of controversy that would be caused when the music industry caught wind you were throwing your support (and money) behind “Mama Kat”, the one woman lip syncing SENSATION-slash-mommy blogger-slash-…we’ll have to think of one more thing in order to make me a triple threat, but I’m certain there is one.

It will be amazing Ellen and I’ll let you take full credit for the idea. Because I’m a giver like that. Here is my first submission:

Mama Kat Loves You When You Love Her


Kmama August 11, 2010 at 6:16 am

I am totally cracking up!! I love it. You really are a one-woman lip-syncing sensation! LMAO.

Amanda August 11, 2010 at 6:29 am

Awesome-as usual!!!!

Jenn B August 11, 2010 at 6:43 am

That was the best video I’ve seen in so long! Also, I love the wonder woman wig! It’s probably been a while since you’ve pulled her out :).

Thank you for making my day, Mama Kat!

Cathy August 11, 2010 at 6:46 am

I can’t, for the life of me, figure out why Ellen hasn’t put you on the show.

It’s a conspiracy.

Amo August 11, 2010 at 6:46 am

Your Dear Ellen letters are my favorite!! They totally crack me up. And yes, the lip synching industry has yet to be popular. Maybe you can be the first! Your submission was pure genius!

Shell August 11, 2010 at 6:58 am

How could she ignore that?

Jackie August 11, 2010 at 6:59 am

Amazing!!! I have no idea why Ellen hasn’t asked you to be on her show yet! Maybe we should all start a campaign to get you on her show?

Nicole August 11, 2010 at 7:26 am

I cannot wait for the day I see you on Ellen! This is priceless!

Kayemgi August 11, 2010 at 7:28 am

Haha that was awesome. I think the lip synching industry has found it’s ambassador!!

Mama Kat August 11, 2010 at 2:25 pm

Unless you count Britney Spears…I’m TOTALLY the lip synching queen.

Moondancer August 11, 2010 at 7:29 am

Hello Mama Kat,
I’m learning a bit more about Ellen, I think that’s great she’s discovering undiscovered talent on YouTube.

I’m learning a bit more about you too. I really loved the video. It made me laugh. However, I’m going to hide this post so my seven-year old daughter doesn’t see it or she’ll want to broadcast us on YouTube too. :)

Little mama already has me roped into doing a remake of Lord of the Rings. Complete with a script that she created. ( We’re videotaping it.) The lead stars are her two guinea pigs… naturally since they can’t talk we both have to say their roles, in guinea pig voices; of course… ;) Dress rehearsal started last evening.

I agree with the others; you should be on Ellen’s show. Whatever is she thinking by not inviting you? ;)

Mama Kat August 11, 2010 at 2:24 pm

Thanks for stopping by! Yes, it’s best to hide the video from little ears…this song has been in my head for months now. :)

That One Mom August 11, 2010 at 7:30 am

Um, hello? Triple threat! MASTER OF DISGUISE!!! Such convincing costumes!!! What an amazing video!

Rachel {at} Mommy Needs a Vacation August 11, 2010 at 7:31 am

I mean how could Ellen ignore that? Especially that fabulous wig collection that you have. I might need to borrow one of those wigs someday. I have a Kate Gosselin wig- wanna borrow that?

NotJustAnotherJen August 11, 2010 at 7:52 am

you are a nut. all i could think about was ab fab when i saw your clip.

SarahK August 11, 2010 at 8:17 am

Holy. Crap.

Jen August 11, 2010 at 8:17 am

You are just too many things. We have to get you on Ellen.

Crystal August 11, 2010 at 8:24 am

haha, I LOVED it!!!! And how in the heck did you get two video’s in one picture frame. I’m impressed. Do you use imovie?

baby August 11, 2010 at 8:27 am

if you could just go ahead and post that video daily so i can kick start things right that would be ideal. thanks.

Jennifer August 11, 2010 at 8:27 am

You big nut! That’s hilarious!

Connie Weiss August 11, 2010 at 8:31 am

I’ve decided that I’m boycotting The Ellen Show until she puts you on.

Who’s with me?

Rachel August 11, 2010 at 8:33 am

Woah! You are an amazing lipsinger. Do you take requests?

Mama Kat August 11, 2010 at 2:23 pm

Yes! But I have to like the song. :)

Momma August 11, 2010 at 8:33 am

I have no words.


Can I get your autograph?
And a signed picture?
And tshirt?

Kimmy August 11, 2010 at 8:54 am

LOL! You’re a total crack up! :D

June Freaking Cleaver August 11, 2010 at 8:59 am

Maybe we should overwhelm Ellen with tweets about this…make her take notice – any other outcome would be more than tragic.

Melissa August 11, 2010 at 9:06 am

My 13 month old daughter broke out in dance as she closely watched the video…nice job! :) I’m positive this one is going to catch Ellen’s attention!

Phoebe @ GettingFreedom August 11, 2010 at 9:08 am

You are absolutely hilarious!

Lolli August 11, 2010 at 9:09 am

This one is going to be IT. I can feel it.

Sugar Mama August 11, 2010 at 9:14 am

My 7 yo daughter LOVES this and now wants me to do it. She has every Barbie movie, and we sing the songs together a lot.

By the way, you look amazing with platinum blond hair. ;o)

Mama Kat August 11, 2010 at 12:49 pm

Thank you…especially with those dark roots showing through right? Super hot. :)

liz August 11, 2010 at 9:16 am

How could Ellen say No to this?!? Pure genius!

Nirvana Mamma August 11, 2010 at 9:25 am

That was RAD!!! She has to bring you on now. Fur realz.

Alana Morales August 11, 2010 at 9:29 am

Sofa King awesome.

Aging Mommy August 11, 2010 at 9:29 am

Forget Ellen, I think you should just have your own show :-)

All joking apart, wouldn’t it be so great to have a Mom show, there really isn’t any such thing in terms of real life for new Moms that I know of and for any new Mom out there to be able to have a laugh about all the “fun” of new motherhood and know you are not alone would be just brilliant.

Mama Kat August 11, 2010 at 12:49 pm

You’re so on to something right now…I knew I should have auditioned for that Oprah contest when I had the chance.

Trippin' Mama August 11, 2010 at 9:32 am

Can I just say that I’m trapped in Barbie Diamond Castle Hell right now, but you’ve made it all better by giving me a good laugh.

I bow to your awesome powers.

And your blondeness.


Your biggest fan – Christy

Mama Kat August 11, 2010 at 12:48 pm

When I first watched that movie I couldn’t stop thinking about what it would be like if adults really acted like that. Totally made me laugh.

S Club Mama August 11, 2010 at 9:44 am

You are so talented with a video camera and some wigs. Loving this.

Megan August 11, 2010 at 9:46 am

If this doesn’t get you on Ellen, well, I just don’t know what will.

Loved it! LOL

Foursons August 11, 2010 at 9:46 am

Girl, you’ve got mad skilz. Seriously.

Mandi August 11, 2010 at 10:04 am

This cracked me up!!!
She should TOTALLY let you on the show! Hello?!

Kelly August 11, 2010 at 10:54 am

That just made my day! :-) Love it!

k odell August 11, 2010 at 11:05 am

seriously- send this to ellen, NOW. You rock

Mama Kat August 11, 2010 at 11:56 am

I sent it!! And tweeted her. And facebooked her. She’ll come around. ;)

Sara R-The Millennial Housewife August 11, 2010 at 11:06 am

I can’t wait until the day that I get that tweet from Ellen announcing her very special guest – Mama Kat! I love your Dear Ellen letters…they are hilar!

Sonora August 11, 2010 at 11:19 am

Ok, that was awesome! I love the video. I seriously can’t believe you haven’t gotten on the show yet. I’m thinking we could pass around a petition and get tons of people to sign it. I don’t think she realizes how popular the show would be if they had you as a guest.

Mama Kat August 11, 2010 at 11:54 am

I know right!! I mean…judging by the comments alone I’d get her at LEAST 30 extra viewers that day!! Ellen’s nuts.

Allison @ Alli 'n Son August 11, 2010 at 11:20 am

Hil-ar-i-ous. Seriously, if Ellen doesn’t have you on her show, I may just have to stop watching.

Pooba August 11, 2010 at 12:16 pm

Oh my god you are killing me!!!!! I’m sitting here at work laughing at my desk!!

Sherri August 11, 2010 at 12:29 pm

Oh man, if Ellen wouldn’t pick you for the Lip-Synching Award then you must go on tour. Must. This is too funny, and you even got the *sigh* at the end!

Shelley August 11, 2010 at 1:40 pm

I had a huge grin on my face during that video. You are so talented! :-)

How can she ignore such talent as yours? Not everyone is so determined to be a great lip syncer!

Alice August 11, 2010 at 2:01 pm

Hilarious!! You ARE a lip-synching sensation!

Mama Kat August 11, 2010 at 2:18 pm

Sherri the sigh at the end is my favorite part!!

Momma on the Rocks August 11, 2010 at 2:43 pm

Too freaking hilarious! Something like this would totally make Princess and the Pauper more bearable (we are trapped in a mind-sucking vortex of Barbie movies, but the Diamond Castle is one of the few we don’t have)

Love it – Ellen totally needs you. I see (the both of you) in the Ellen’s bathroom!

Mommy's Sippy Cup August 11, 2010 at 3:07 pm

This is beyond awesome! I totally cracked up!! You just have to be on Ellen!!! You go on with you bad lip synching self!!

(The wigs are just the cherry on the top!)

Bethany August 11, 2010 at 4:03 pm

So freakin’ hilarious! How Ellen hasn’t discovered you yet I have NO IDEA!!!!! :-)

Jenn @ That Just Happened August 11, 2010 at 4:27 pm

I was just thinking how it’s been a while since you posted a letter to Ellen, it’s like you read my mind! I like your lip synching…definitely looks professional. Ellen has to pay attention now!

Missy August 11, 2010 at 4:52 pm

Hilarious – I found you via FB from Debi and Amanda (Multiples and More)
My twin daughters love this song and the dvd so I found it really funny. Hope Ellen drops by!

Jessica August 11, 2010 at 6:19 pm

That was beautiful, Kat! You’re truly a sensational singer!

We’ll see what I think when I’m not heavily drinking wine while while watching though…that’s the real test!

BigMamaCass August 11, 2010 at 8:58 pm

Wow. That video made me weep. Whoa. {sniffle}

Erin August 11, 2010 at 10:16 pm

Seriously….we you born famous? =)
That’s awesome!

McCall August 12, 2010 at 9:34 am

My, what a gift you have! You make Barbie look like an amateur. Ellen would be a fool not to take you up on this offer. ;)

Alecia August 12, 2010 at 9:47 am

LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!! Best Ellen Letter Yet! My kids are behind me going “How did she DO that?!?”

And I told them you used juuuuust a touch of crazy sauce.

Andrew’s comment: “Why don’t you write the word hysterical…..or classic?”

Tracy P. August 12, 2010 at 9:48 pm

Born to perform. Good grief, you even got the blinds lined up. The only thing you are more of than a performer is a computer geek. ;-)

Amy August 13, 2010 at 8:03 pm

#1 – you are gorgeous as a blond and a brunette
#2 – you are a natural lipsyncer/ performer
#3 – one day, Ellen will have to listen to you.
#4 – are you coming to Utah for the St George Bootcamp? I have to meet you. :)

adriel August 15, 2010 at 2:53 am

when you make it on ellen, you should totally take that blonde chick with you! she’s *almost* as pretty as you are, and *maybe* even a little bit better at singing. you make an awesome duo!

Mom Taxi Julie August 15, 2010 at 8:53 am

Oh my gosh you are a riot!! I can’t wait until you get on Ellen!

Raine August 20, 2010 at 9:46 am

You never cease to amaze me with your talents!

Connie Schill November 14, 2011 at 10:19 am

I like to page surf & I find all kindsof things I can relate to. LOLS I have delusions of granduer & 1 is of Ellen, me & Oprah becuz I have “IT” U have “IT” too.

viviene February 8, 2012 at 5:27 am
