Ellen Degeneres Show
Betty DeGeneres appeared to be blushing a little when Channing Tatum had the Magic Mike Live dancers perform on Tuesday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Ellen's 86-year-old mother initially looked quite calm as the guys started stripping off their shirts and seductively dancing to Ginuwine's "Pony," but her face soon changed when they all started humping the stage.
At one point, Betty's jaw dropped a little during the gyration portion of the performance.
Betty will get to see the guys again, because Ellen gave everyone in the audience a three-day, two-night stay at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, which is home to Magic Mike Live.
ET was one of the first to speak to Tatum about the show, and why he thought it was important to bring the male revue to Las Vegas. "For so many years now, I think male revues have told women what they should think is sexy, and when you really look at it, it's kind of misogynistic a little bit," the Magic Mike XXL movie star explained. "Like [male dances are] all dominant doctors and lawyers and fireman and construction workers and all women's archetypes are like nurses and maids and subservient things. We just want to turn all that up on its ear and talk about it and just start a conversation between women and men."
