Wine, women and wild hats: KLG and Hoda visit 'Ellen'

Feb. 13, 2013 at 11:20 AM ET

As the ladies continue to take California by storm, they stopped by "The Ellen Show" on Tuesday to have a little wine. Okay, a lot of wine. Ellen got in on the Fourth Hour game, adding a "Second Hour" to her show with some very special guests, our TODAY co-anchors.

Ellen sat at a table loaded with cabernet and sighed, "Obviously I need my cohosts and there's only one way to get them out." She then shouted, "I have wine!" and KLG and Hoda danced their way onto the set.

In honor of Ellen's "Two-fer Tuesday," the talk show host doubled their servings: They already had two glasses in front of them when Ellen announced they'd also be drinking daiquiris in honor of Mardi Gras. KLG chugged an entire pour of red before Ellen unveiled the coup de grace — boxed wine hats.

"This way it doesn't have to be arm's length away," Ellen explained, as the ladies sipped vino through their crazy straws.

It was very sweet of Ellen to make them feel so at home, but she should worry that they might never leave.
