Ellen's personal email address should remain private except to those people she wishes to give it to. However, you could check The Ellen DeGeneres Show's website (see related links below) to see if there is anything on there. Ellen DeGeneres is one of those women who seems ageless. Her energy, kindness and ability to make us laugh evidently have no bounds. However, Ellen is, in fact, mortal, and her 55th birthday is January 26th.
