And despite a busy schedule, Ellen DeGeneres found time to run a few errands on Thursday in the exclusive community of Montecito, California, where she resides.  

The 62-year-old comedienne was dressed casually in a pale blue short unbuttoned at the collar and a pair of black pants.

DeGeneres donned sunglasses and a dark gray face mask for her outing.

She carried her phone and a store bag from the upscale Tre Lune restaurant.

The chat show host appears to have weathered the storm from earlier in the year when she was accused of overseeing a toxic workplace, prompting an investigation by the network.

In the first episode of her new season in September, DeGeneres apologized, telling her audience: ‘I learned things happened here that never should have happened. I take that very seriously and I want to say I am so sorry to the people who were affected.’

She and the 74-year-old Oscar winner engaged in a socially-distant interview with Keaton quipping that ‘it was nice to be distant’ because ‘we don’t wanna die. Not today, anyway. Or ever maybe!’

The Annie Hall and First Wives Club star then joked about looking for single men among the audience.

‘You know, I’ve been holed up at the house alone. I could use a man or two!’ she quipped.

During her appearance, Keaton was furnished with a glass of wine instead of the usual mug of water or coffee normally offered to guests.

‘You know what I like about this show? The wine,’ she said. ‘I mean, most people don’t have wine for me, but when I come on, Ellen is so generous about that.’

Ellen responded: ‘That’s our new promo…. ‘You know what I like about this show? The wine!’ That’ll get ’em here.’

Cheers: The fun continued. 'You know what I like about this show? The wine,' Keaton said. 'I mean, most people don't have wine for me, but when I come on, Ellen is so generous about that'
