On Marathon Monday, actress Valerie Bertinelli, just days shy of her 50th birthday, competed in the 114th Boston Marathon. The current Jenny Craig spokesperson, who lost a reported 40 pounds on the program, completed the race in 5 hours and 14 minutes running with her personal trainer, and raising money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The marathon also featured another notable weight loss example, Tracy Yukich, a former contestant from TV’s “Biggest Loser”.
“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” was in Brighton Monday afternoon (not Ellen herself, but rather a camera crew and production assistants feeding live to LA). Fans were notified via Ellen’s Twitter to assemble at the CVS at 207 Market Street, and bring with them one item each starting with the letters C, V, and S. Those fans with the most funny/amusing/entertaining items were interviewed by Ellen via satellite, then selected to go in the store to try to win prizes. Ellen’s tweets promised the “very cool” flock of fans that gathered, that the top prize was “a gift worth thousands!” The eventual winner went home with a $5,000 CVS gift card. Afterwards, Ellen beamed “I love the city of Boston! Ya’ll were amazingly creative. Thanks for playing one of our biggest Twitter games ever!”
