Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi's Wedding Bells

Ellen DeGeneres has announced on her talk show that she plans to wed Portia de Rossi now that the California Supreme Court has ruled in favor of gay marriages.

Portia, 35, was in the studio at the time, and Ellen, 50, were applauded by audience members after the announcement was made on Thursday.

Ellen previously had a high-profile relationship with actress Anne Heche. In 1997, Ellen appeared on the cover of Time Magazine entitled, “Yep, I’m Gay”

    Why don’t you answer those questions on your own. Especially the fourth question. Think how god would receive you after you have been nasty to a group of his children….

    I wonder if in two years we’ll hear/read in the news that they are splitting up and Ellen DeGeneres is going to date Robin Williams. And wasn’t Portia de Rossi once married – to a man? So maybe she’ll start dating a man, too.

    I am only kidding.

    Congratulations to Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi.

    But this is my favorite story about this story….
    ——————————————————————————————–

    This just in: DeGeneres was just kidding.

    After the California Supreme Court ruled that it is constitutional for gay people to marry, several celebrity couples announced plans to wed, including George Takei (Mr. Sulu on “Star Trek”) and his partner, Brad Altman, and DeGeneres and her partner, de Rossi.

    DeGeneres even quipped that she and de Rossi were registered at Crate & Barrel.

    But it seems some fans didn’t see the “insert laugh here” card. A con man took almost no time setting up a Crate & Barrel account in DeGeneres’ name, and fans quickly began sending gifts to the account.

    DeGeneres had to stand up and say she was just engaging in a bit of stand-up.

    “I was joking when I released a statement saying we registered at Crate & Barrel,” she told World Entertainment News Network. “Some scam artist tried to take advantage of that. . . .”

    DeGeneres has to be asking herself which is worse: The creep who duped her fans or those straight-faced fans who don’t even know a joke when they hear one.

    So, to repeat: Ellen and Portia are not registered at Crate & Barrel.

    They’re at Target.

    Why do we accept this disgrace as ‘role model” for our childre?
    Life is confusing enough, for them.
    Satan is king of the media. Why has the world forgotten God, who will never condone such things.
