Award-winning TV host Ellen DeGeneres will lend her name to a home ware, ready-to-wear fashion, accessories and pet care items range called E. D., to début as a capsule collection for the holidays this year, with a full collection launch in spring 2015.

   DeGeneres said in a release, ‘I’m so excited to work with Chris and our incredibly talented team on this new venture. I’ve always wanted to launch a line of home goods, clothing and accessories. I already get to be inside people’s living rooms with my show. Now I get to be in their kitchens, in their beds, and in their pants. Wait. That’s not what I meant.’
