Beloved comedienne Lucille Ball has given Oscar host Ellen Degeneres the ultimate praise from beyond the grave - and she's uncovered one of the comedienne's explosive past life secrets. In a seance staged by psychic to the stars KENNY KINGSTON after the Oscars on Sunday night (25FEB07), a number of dead stars reached out to their late pal - and many had nothing but high praise for the way DeGeneres hosted the Academy Awards. Kingston says, "Lucille Ball was particularly complimentary about Ellen and told me she thought Ellen should be the permanent host of the Oscars." But it was the bombshell that was to follow that floored Kingston, who was once hired to guide Bette Davis and Marilyn Monroe spiritually. He adds, "I wasn't expecting it, but Lucille Ball revealed that Ellen was her own mother's mother two lifetimes ago. It seems the roles were reversed in a past life. "That might explain why Ellen and her mother, BETTY, who often appears on her TV show, are so close."
