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

Charlotte: My mom always says God doesn't give with both hands. You're young, beautiful, brilliant. There has to be something you can't have.
Amelia: Some days I'd give that all up.
Charlotte: That's just the craving talking. The longer you go without a drink...
Amelia: I drank at your wedding. I thought it was ginger ale. I spit it out.
Charlotte: OK, since then?
Amelia: Nothing, but I can't stop thinking about it.
Charlotte: It was an accident. Don't let a slip turn into a fall. Get your butt to a meeting.

You are your past. Own it.
