The 49-year-old firstly told Ellen about the Christmas gift she got from her sister and said:

“So, I’m obsessed with Fixer Upper. Do you guys know Joanna Gaines and Chip Gaines? So, I’m obsessed with it, and my sister got me, that’s actually what I got for Christmas. My sister got me her new book. I’m like obsessed with it. I’m in bed every night looking at it -- ‘Oh, my gosh, this is so amazing.’”

Ellen about Alex’s surprise on Sunday:

"I want you to do a meeting.’ And he loves meetings. He loves to do meetings, and I hate meetings. And he’s like, ‘I want you to do a meeting with me’ and I’m always, like, dragged into these meetings… And he opens up the FaceTime, and it’s Joanna Gaines! And I was like, ‘Agh!’ …I totally fangirled out.”

The surprise bowled Jennifer over, and she was over the moon when Joanna agreed to weigh in on Alex and Jennifer’s design decisions, even though Joanna mentioned that she doesn’t typically offer help of this kind. To Jennifer, it was a special gift because it showed her how much Alex cared and added:


"I was looking at him, and I was like, 'You listened to me! I love you. You are so amazing!'"

“So now you’re gonna try to diminish the scope of Motown and narrow it down to just music for Black people, and you call yourself defending the image of Motown. Well, you’re trying to set us back a hundred years. If you call yourself loving Motown, be happy that we reached so many people and broke down so many racial barriers.”

Smokey further shamed the haters as he added:


“And that an artist like Jennifer, even after hearing all your negative comments, still loved Motown enough to do the tribute anyway. Now that’s love and respect.”
