As long as she is happy, I don't care. I saw the interview with Matt this morning. I still like her acting. Just as I didn't care when Ellen came out. I thought she was funny, and I still think she is funny.

I agree with you, and I've always liked her acting, too. As far as Ellen goes, she has always been funny, and I absolutely love people that can make me laugh.

She must have had an inkling along the way thru 3 marriages and 62 years of living. Oh, well, good luck to her.

I look forward to the day when people stop feeling a need to announce their sexual preferences to the world.
Really...why on earth should this be newsworthy?

I don't know... Are you famous? Did you go on the Today show and make that statement? Were you in previous homosexual relationships and everyone knew you as being in those relationships?
