Ellen DeGeneres to Marry Portia de Rossi

Ellen and Portia Are Getting Married!

Yesterday while taping her show that airs today, Ellen DeGeneres made an important announcement to the audience. Just hours after the California Supreme Court overturned legislation banning same sex marriage, the talk show host announced plans to walk down the aisle with her longtime girlfriend Portia de Rossi! Check out the announcement below; so sweet with Portia in the audience. Ellen also released this statement to The Advocate in response to the legislation:

I’m thrilled that the California supreme court overturned the ban on gay marriage. I can’t wait to get married. We all deserve the same rights, and I believe that someday we’ll look back on this and not allowing gays to marry will seem as absurd as not allowing women to vote.

P.S. I’m registered at Crate & Barrel.

Congratulations to Ellen and Portia, one of our favorite duos, and couples all over California who are celebrating the excellent news!

I LOVE Ellen. Not gay myself but still... she's awesome!!! Good for them and I also would like to know if Brangelina will get hitched over it. Personally, I'd marry Ellen over Brad any day. She can really cut a rug!!! Plus, she hasn't made it as much as a platform like Brad and Angie. She is cool the infinate degree.

Here's the thing - At one time, desegregation was against the will of the majority of the people in various areas of the country as well. The majority rule idea doesn't come into play when we're talking about basic rights of citizens. I'm really glad to see California moving in this direction. I hope the rest of the country follows.
