Jenna Dewan has excised the "Tatum" from her name, just FYI. Yesterday, during an appearance on Ellen, Dewan was very gracious when Ellen DeGeneres accidentally referred to Dewan as a "Tatum" when introducing the guests. Dewan appeared with Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough, and Ne-Yo, her fellow judges on the show World of Dance. DeGeneres immediately corrected herself, and later apologised to Dewan for the mistake.
"I am so sorry. I introduced you — it was such a habit," DeGeneres said. "I have to say, the way that you and Channing are handling everything is beautiful, and for your daughter, and the statements have been great, and I apologise."
Dewan didn't seem too perturbed, thanking DeGeneres — a long-time friend to the former couple — and then her fans for the "love and support." Dewan, for this breakup, 11 out of 10!
