Earlier this week, I sent my friend, Melissa McCarthy,

to a nearby dry cleaners.

I was in her ear the whole time, telling her what to say and do.

Before it was over, somebody called 911.

I'm sorry I scared you!


It's Ellen's fault!

It's Ellen's fault. Say shame.


So, I felt so terrible about the poor woman having

to take care of Melissa, I wanted to meet her,

so I can apologize in person.

From Milt & Edie's here in Burbank, please welcome Alexis.

Come on down.

Hi, there.


So nice to meet you.

It's so nice to meet you.

Oh my God, I love you so much.

Oh, thanks so much.


How long had you worked at Milt & Edie's?

I started in June.


So, almost three months, now.

Do a lot of celebrities come in there?



But when I saw Melissa McCartney,

it was like a whole different level, because that's like,

my favorite artist.

I just love her so, so much.

Oh, really?

Yeah, so it was just crazy.

You're a fan of hers, and yet, you called her Amy Schumer.


I was just so starstruck, I didn't even know what to say.

She was like, you know what movies I'm in?

I'm like, well, I know you're Amy Schumer.

Blah, blah, blah.

Yeah I was just like-- and she started laughing.

She was laughing like, hysterically.

And I was just like, oh my god.

This woman is crazy.



So, you meet somebody that you really love,

and you think, oh, she's crazy.



All right.

So, when I had her, I didn't think it

through, that of course, if I tell her to fall to the ground,

that people are going to be concerned for her.


And you told someone to call 911?

Yeah I told my co-worker to call 911.

And then she did.

And then she fell.

And I was just like, oh my god.

And then I called her Amy Schumer.

I can't believe I called-- even when she fell, I was just like,

oh no, Amy.


You said that?

You said, oh no, Amy when she was on the ground?




So, the whole time, you called her Amy Schumer?


I don't know.

I was just so shocked.

I couldn't even--



So what's it been like all week long, dealing with the--

and how does everybody there-- because only one other person

knew that that was happening?


I was just so shocked.

It honestly just changed my whole week.

Because last week, I was having a really bad week.

I just moved here from Las Vegas,

and I got really homesick.

I miss my mom a lot, and so, I was just really sad last week.

And then this happened.

So it was just-- it was just crazy.

Like this week has just been crazy.


I feel incredibly grateful, and thank

you so much for having me on your show.

I can't believe this is real.

Oh, you're welcome.

Well, we wanted to have you just to apologize,

but since then, I learned that you owe some money in student

loans, you're trying to save money for a car,

and you're such a good person, you were so patient with her.

You didn't get frustrated, you didn't tell someone to come

help, you didn't--

you just stayed there with her the whole time.

So I want to reward your kindness.

So Shutterfly wants to give you $20,000.


Oh my gosh.

Thank you so much.

You're a good person.

You're a good person.
