Ellen DeGeneres Nicknames Taye Diggs "McChocolatey"

by 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!

Private Practice Quotes

You ever been violated? Anybody rape you lately? Let me tell you what its like. You know those made for TV movies where some woman's crouched down naked in a shower holding her knees and sobbing because when she closes her eyes she can still feel the guys hands on her? How when they show the attack the woman's eyes go all blank and still and she goes to some other place in her mind just to deal with the horror of what's happening to her while some Lillith Fair song plays. It is nothing like that. He's sturdy and sweaty and he licks your face and wipes himself off in your hair and when you try to scream he punches you so hard you see God. And then he goes at you again reaping stuff you didn't even know you had because he enjoyed it so much the first time. I know you're trying to help but if helping me means that everyone is gonna be looking at me the way you're looking at me now please do not help me.
