“There’s a peace to [being married] and a sense of togetherness that we just didn’t have before. And I didn’t even realize it would change as much as it has, but it’s so lovely .. It’s legal, and it’s real, so there’s that kind of formality to it that makes it very valid. I think the emotions that went with that as a gay woman kind of surprised me – that I would be that relieved to have my mother be present at the ceremony to bless the union, and to call [Ellen] her daughter-in-law.”

My goodness, I am quite the trend-setter.
I decided back in November that I was going to go vegan, and now it appears Portia de Rossi and Ellen Degeneres have made the same choice.
Former Ally McBeal star De Rossi reveals she and her wife went meat and dairy-free late last year – and De Generes’ healthy diet choice is already paying off for her.
The actress explains, “We just made that shift in our lives. The benefit of it is weight loss. For her more than me. Her body responded to it very well. It is amazing.
“We are just both very happy. It feels like such a compassionate choice. We are such animal lovers, why stop short of cows and chickens? It didn’t make any sense.”
I would highly recommend going vegan, or at least trying to eat vegan a couple days out of the week. Not only will you probably lose weight, your skin will clear up and you’ll feel a lot better physically and emotionally. It is healthier for animals, for the environment, and for you!

Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi were hard at work threatening the sanctity of marriage on Wednesday night, as Portia stood lovingly beside her wife, Ellen, who’d just won the People’s Choice Award for Best Talk Show Host. Portia beams at the camera and then beams at her wife, because it’s so exciting that they can share and treasure this achievement, because they’re married now, and because they are working hard to set the foundation for a lifelong partnership that can be fulfilling and joyful for themselves and all those who love them.
Yes yes. Now I see how this sort of nonsense goes against everything marriage stands for.
No, I still don’t get it.

Congratu-fucking-lations to Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi, who officially tied the knot on Saturday in a small ceremony at their home attended by close family and friends. Only nineteen people were there!
Both brides wore Zac Posen and exchanged rings by Neil Lane. They also wrote their own vows.
I really really REALLY hope they’re going to release photos. I want to see pictures of this WONDERFUL occasion!!!
CONGRATS ELLEN AND PORTIA!!!

Our very first celebrity lesbian wedding!!!
Portia De Rossi and Ellen Degeneres are planning to get married this weekend in a small intimate ceremony with only a few close friends and family … and the paparazzi, hopefully. They’ll probably be all over this thing. I want to see photos!!! Will they both wear bridal gowns? Ooooh, we could play “Who Wore It Best: Lesbian Wedding Bridal Gown Edition.”
All joking aside, this is fucking awesome, and I’m beyond thrilled that this loving couple has the opportunity to get married. Maybe one day I’ll have the same opportunity. Unfortunately, the state of California is still not open-minded enough to recognize my marriage to Adam Duritz without, ya know, his written consent, but I plan to issue a lawsuit addressing this injustice once I’m absolutely certain I want a forged marriage to Adam Duritz instead of to Michael Phelps.
