Lindsay Lohan Set To Appear On Ellen

Guys, I’m really sorry about this Linds news every single day.  You know how I feel about her, but these stories just keep popping up and I’m afraid that if I don’t report them, Beet will punish me by making me watch a twenty-four hour-long compilation DVD of the works of Julia Roberts, or something as equally horrific.

Anyway, Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi, or Double De as they are affectionately called by me, attended the 20th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in which Ellen won Outstanding Talk Show Episode for the episode of Ellen that featured Ellen and Portia’s wedding.  Ellen told Access Hollywood, “We didn’t register, so this is nice. We get an award!”

She also let it be known that Lindsay Lohan is set to appear on Ellen.  “I’m excited. I want to hear what Lindsay has to say and [I] hope she gets back to her career.  She seems to be reaching out to people lately… I hope she’s OK… she’s so talented.  I’m going to ask her what’s going on and let her have a platform to speak.”

Can someone, anyone, please explain to me just how talented Lindsay Lohan is?  I’m not kidding right now, I’m open to learning.  What production, done within the last five years (because we cannot allow Linds to still be riding on the hair extensions coattails of Parent Trap), has Lindsay appeared in and been “so talented,”?  I respect Ellen a lot both as a human and as a comedienne so I’m sure she’s right and I’m just overlooking some body of work.  And if Lindsay was good in something, I really need to watch whatever it was so I can be more educated on this loved and hated girl.  Call it research for the job.

I’ve got two open slots on my Netflix queue right now.  Tell me what Lohan masterpiece I need to order up.  Go.

Quotables

Portia de Rossi

“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.”

They’re Vegan, Too!

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!

Look Who’s Still in Love!

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.

Wait …

No, I still don’t get it.
