Ellen gets emotional Facetiming Oprah about the mudslides

posted by Mark Robertson -

Ellen DeGeneres FaceTimed with her neighbor Oprah Winfrey on Thursday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and the pair discussed the deadly mudslides and their impact on their community in Southern California. During the call, Winfrey recalls waking to seeing a sky that appeared to be “on fire.” DeGeneres also opened up, discussing the people who had been confirmed dead and were still missing. At one point, she appeared to almost lose her composure. "I work in L.A. but I consider Montecito my home. I live there, Oprah lives there. It's not just a wealth community. It's filled with a lot of different types of people from all backgrounds. There are people who are missing family members. They're finding people and bodies," she said. "You hear the word mudslides and you have no idea the impact that it has. But after the largest fire in California history, it's catastrophic, it's beyond recognizable." The mudslides, of course, follow the devastating Thomas Fire in the same region.

Thanks everyone for your prayers and concern. My property is fine.Some mud , and minor damage that pales in comparison to what my neighbors are going thru. #mudslides🙏🏾
