Jeannie Klisiewicz is an on-air correspondent and producer who is best known for her work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she has been featured in various red carpet events and comedy bits.
She was born on July 30, 1986. Klisiewicz grew up in Illinois. In 2008, she graduated from the University of Illinois. At some point, she moved to Los Angeles for a lifestyle that has her up-close-and-personal with celebrities every day.
Klisiewicz was originally hired by Ellen DeGeneres as a receptionist after years of being a vocal superfan of the show.
Ellen DeGeneres is an American television host, actress, comedian, producer, writer, and LGBT activist who is best known for her syndicated TV talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Ellen and her wife, Portia de Rossi (an Australian-American philanthropist, model, and actress), are one of the most high-profile gay couples in Hollywood.
De Generes said about her wife:
“I am very happily married. The only thing we ever argue about is who loves who more, it really is true.”
In 2006, DeGeneres called Jeannie, a fan who was in desperate need of a job. After they spoke on the phone, DeGeneres decided to invite Klisiewicz to a taping of the show.
They sat on stage chatting for several minutes before Ellen gave Klisiewicz the chance of a lifetime.
DeGeneres told Klisiewicz:
“We like your personality. We talked about it this afternoon. We want to offer you a job here.”
In 2016, Jeannie appeared on camera as a make-up artist on the television movie Grease Live!
In the present day, Klisiewicz has her own show, entitled – ”Best News Ever.” In the show, Jeannie facilitates the breaking of the “best news ever” to some unsuspecting souls.
For example, for the 1st episode, Lea Michele joined Jeannie to give a young couple by the names of Andre and Sofia their very own epic gender reveal.
On July 17, 2017, she married Nick Stathis. Jeannie said:
”This weekend I went from fiancée to wife and went from thinking I had the best friends and family to KNOWING I have the best friends and family. Nick and I will never forget this weekend!”
She also said:
“You can have success and you can have money and you can have the best job in the world, but you’re only going to sleep well at night if you’re happy with who you are.”
She was born in the Year of the Tiger. People who were born in the Year of the Tiger are unpredictable. They have an impetuous and passionate personality, and they are carried along by their feelings.
With tough judgment and stubborn personalities, Tigers work actively and express themselves boldly, doing things in a high-handed manner.

Female Tigers frequently persist their old ways and they are rebellious, emotional, careless, and credulous.
Klisiewicz has interviewed Kid Rock (an American rapper, musician, singer-songwriter, record producer, and actor) during her time on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
In 2018, DeGeneres surprised Jeannie with a brand new Ford EcoSport. That year marks Jeannie’s tenth anniversary on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and DeGeneres wanted to surprise her with a special celebration.
They sat together on the same stage where Klisiewicz had been offered her job 10 years prior, watching a montage of some of Klisiewicz’s best moments, including being part of the Broadway production of Wicked and kissing Usher on the red carpet.
When the clip ended, Klisiewicz quoted:
“I have the best job in the whole world. [Ellen’s] the best and it just trickles down to every person that we work with and it’s just the best place. And I’m so grateful for that, so thank you.”
On March 20, 2019, she appeared at Gibbs Elementary and hosted a short round of “Taste Buds,” where two faculty members were blindfolded, tasted mystery foods and had to describe them for the other one to guess.
