"Yeah, I'm from New Orleans. And we took one trip, one vacation and it was to Hollywood. And we walked this Walk of Fame. We looked at the stars on the sidewalk here on Hollywood Boulevard, and we took the tour of celebrity homes. And now today I'm getting a star on the Walk of Fame and I am a stop on the tour of celebrities' home. So it's kind of a, don't come by," said DeGeneres.
