There are a lot of marriage announcements that when they are spread around Hollywood, people are nothing less than shocked. However there was an engagement announcement on Thursday that I think shocked everyone. Ellen DeGeneres made the announcement from the stage of her own show this past week that she will be getting married to Portia de Rossi. From TMZ,
“Well, she’s gone and done it. Ellen’s gonna get hitched.
A spy in the audience of this afternoon’s taping of the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” tells us that after Ellen mentioned today’s California Supreme Court ruling striking down the state’s ban on gay marriage, she surprised everyone and announced that she was going to tie the knot with longtime girlfriend, actress Portia de Rossi.
Portia was in the crowd and after she made the announcement, the studio audience went wild, giving the two a huge standing O.”
I don’t think that it’s because this is a marriage for two women that makes it shocking. It’s just that it’s Ellen. She’s extremely funny and she just has never portrayed herself to ever be all that worried about things like marriage and family. I am very happy about these pending nuptials though. It’s great to see that laws are being changed to fit with today’s society and that people are welcoming all couples to share and enjoy the love they have for each other!
