Ellen DeGeneres Nicknames Taye Diggs "McChocolatey"

at . Comments

One day before the premiere of Private Practice, Taye Diggs sat down with Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show to discuss the new series and what it's like being a new kid on the medical block. A critical excerpt ...

Ellen DeGeneres: "All right so there's McSteamy, McDreamy, is there going to be a McSomething for you? Are you going to have a nickname?"

Taye Diggs: "I think that they're trying to steer away from all those nicknames to try and give us our own style on Private Practice. I always thought if they did go in that direction I could be McChocolatey."

Ellen DeGeneres: "Well, from now, you will always be McChocolatey to me. That's what I shall call you."

McChocolatey

There you go. Taye Diggs: McChocolatey. End of story.

I watched it on my break at work. I always watch Ellen on my break at work. I love her. Too bad I only get to watch 15 minutes of it. But I saw Taye Diggs, but that part got cut off for Severe Thunderstorm Warnings!. I was like "What?!?! You NEVER interupt Ellen!!!! That's illegal! I demand and appology!!! Especially since Taye Diggs was on talking about Private Practice!!!! WTF!!!" I was upset. If I were worried about the weather, I would watch the weather channel. What happened to just putting the little thing in the corner of the screen. Why do you have to entirely interrupt the show? Seriously!
