Color us impressed!
Miss Colorado Kelly Johnson was already earning brownie points with Ellen DeGeneres during the Miss America Pageant when she said that she thought Ellen should be the face on the $10 bill!
Perhaps that’s why the talk show host invited Miz Johnson to appear on her Thursday show!
Aside from telling Ellen how excited she to be second runner up and started crying when she learned she might be on Ellen, Kelly showed a TON of class when she talked about the nurse monologue she gave — that The View co-hosts recently criticized.
The most admirable thing about Kelly during the interview was that she didn’t bring up the recent controversy revolving around her speech.
Instead she just talked about how it was important it was to bring attention to the profession by saying:
“Thank you. I really do care a lot. It was just so much fun to perform that. To see it trend on Facebook and Twitter, especially to bring all these nurses together and have everybody standing up for our profession and giving them the voice that they deserve├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥they work so hard and they are life savers├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥that’s all the message I wanted to give. It’s about them; it’s not about me.”
