According to Ellen: I always looked up to Michael as a child and now admire him as a grown woman. Michael’s rare combination of hilarious quick wit with classic one liners and massive heart make him the unique special person that he is. Right from day one he has been loading our van to the brim with the hottest and latest toys. Without hesitation, he has always been there with open arms to help in any way he can. Thank you Michael, the entire Albert Clan and TCG for your tremendous support.
