    IMDB story today says these two are a couple now. How did I not know that Portia de Rossi was a lesbian??? Is this well known? For better or worse, the sexual orientation of celebs usually gets alot of ink. Makes me think I would have heard of this before. Well, anyway, good luck to both of them!

    Really? You mean I don't have a shot at Portia after all?

    I'm crushed.

    The news (of Portia's sexual preference) came out back when Portia was still part of the cast on "Ally McBeal".

    It gets a lot of ink only if the celebs choose to make it a big story. I didn't know Ian McKellen was gay until he guest starred on SNL.

    Yes, I learned the sad news back in the Ally McBeal days.

    If Portia de Rossi's gonna slum it, she may as well choose a guy.

    Here I thought she was a "tranny"

    Could be. I remember there was an episode on her old TV show where she got a puppy.

    I saw a news photo of Ellen with the Hedison lady a couple of weeks ago (David Hedison's daughter ... I forget her name). They have been together quite some time. I'd be very surprised if they had split.

    McKellen came out on BBC radio in 1988 (i.e., 16 years ago). He did so in opposition to some proposed legislation (which never passed, AFAIK) and has been a gay rights activist ever since.

    You guys aren't keeping up with your After Hours Lounge reading assignments. I "outed" Portia de Rossi in this thread back in August.

    Now get this mental picture of her with Ellen DeGeneres out of my head. It's like seeing Paulina Poriskova and Ric Ocasek together. OK, maybe it isn't that bad. [​IMG]

    After Hours is behind the times. This had already been discussed more than two years earlier in the TV forum.

    ...and why should I care who Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are dating?

    I'm not trying to thread-fart here. But what difference does it make to me who they are dating and what their preferrences are? All I know is that my mom likes the "Ellen" show and that Portia is on "Arrested Development"?

    Then why did you click on this link and read the thread.... The title of the thread pretty much sums it up.



    I would have thought Portia could have done better! [​IMG]
