Ellen DeGeneres decided to phone up her 88-year-old fan Gladys Hardy live on the air and got a funny confession out of her.

It all started when Ellen, who began performing stand-up comedy at small clubs and coffee houses, received a hilarious voicemail from Gladys of Austin, Texas.

Gladys' sassy attitude and witty answers have Ellen doubling over with laughter.

The whole audience was also laughing out loud as Gladys surprisingly confesses to Ellen “Listen, I’ll be honest with you. I love Jesus, but I drink a little.”

Ellen, who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016, has tears in her eyes from laughing so hard by the time their conversation is over.
