ON MEETING PRINCESS KATE, THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE:
Reese: Somebody called me and said we’re having a really small fundraiser would you want to come over and meet the Prince and Princess? I was like, Yes. My husband just thought I was so dorky. He was like, why are you so excited? I must of tried on like six outfits. I’m meeting a princess. You don’t understand. You have to be wearing the right outfit and the whole thing. I don’t know maybe we can be friends. So we went and it’s always funny. Whenever I am super excited about things, my husband calls it the double barrel. That’s when I smile so big I look like a child.
Ellen: You really do look happy (shows photo) You’re just beaming.
Reese: I was so excited to meet her. Y’all, she’s a princess.
Ellen: Was she nice? Do you think y’all will hang out?
Reese: I mean, I would like to hang out. I’m not sure she wants to hang out with me. I could see that happening.
Ellen: Was she down to earth?
Reese: She was really nice. She was lovely. She’s so composed. She seems like such a lady and I think it’s so nice now days to see someone with such nice composure and carries herself so beautifully.
Ellen: Well, that’s great that you got to meet her and have fun… Maybe you’ll hang out.
Reese: Maybe (looks to camera) Call me. Call me anytime.
Ellen: You can play with your Chia Pets together.
