We love us some Portia de Rossi!!!

Mrs. Ellen DeGeneres is elegant, well-spoken, and looks GORGEOUS on the cover of The Advocate!!! We approve!!!

She also opens up QUITE a bit in the magazine's interview:

On her battle with an eating disorder:
“Nobody can really get inside the anorexic’s mind like the anorexic. I abused my body. I had bulimia. I would use fen-phen."

On the Marriage Equality Fight:
“I think it’s up to us to save marriage, up to gay people across the country, seeing as though we’re fighting for it so vehemently. This whole thing has been a wave of excitement and hope, and then it gently falls back into despair. And then it picks us up again. Unfortunately, we’re the ones who have to suffer this—this humiliation, really. There’s kind of a dignity that’s been stripped from us. Gay people are the ones who have to suffer through it—but without it, it won’t change.”

On an Arrested Development Movie:
“We all want a movie to happen. Just write it already!”

We can't get over how lovely she is, and how grateful we are to have her speaking up about such important equal rights issues! What an inspiration!!

Not to mention how desperately we want to see an Arrested Development movie!! Long live Lindsay Bluth Fünke!!!

    The gay community is fortunate to have a person like Ms. Rossi to speak up on these issues. Someone has to repair all the damage that Perez Hilton has done.

    JUST THINK HOW EMBARRASSING THAT WOULD BE IF YOU WERE A PARENT AND YOUR KID WAS GAY OR LESBIAN. GOD THAT WOULD BE AWFUL

    Portia is so beautiful. Ellen is getting hard to look at lately.

    Didn't they make a joke about her taking fenphen in arrested development? when Mrs. featherbottom tried to give maybe fun-fun & she said this is my moms, and its fenphen.

    wow–LOVE the direct visual reference to Mia Farrow in 1974's "the Great Gatsby". Hmm, campaigning for a part in the remake?

    I could have sworn she was getting scary thin on some of the later seasons of Arrested Development. I am SO proud of her for being honest about it.

    looks like naomi from skins!

    I'm so glad Anne Heche left Ellen, so Ellen could meet Portia! And I say this as a Heche fan. Well, a fan of her acting, anyway!



  17. 17

    Don't worry Portia nothing about you is NORMAL so we are NOT very shock about this one.



  18. 18

    You and that Ellen should disappear like Sodom and Gommorah. Parents should never let their kids read/ watch anything with them in it. Gayhood is an embarassment.

    oh how pretty she is

    Portia and Ellen are an awesome couple. I'm glad they're so happy together.
    How can marrying the person you love be considered wrong?
    These two wonderful ladies were made for each other and I'm happy they both speak out about equality. And I agree,they're righting all the wrongs that people like Perez,put out there. Perez may be gay,but he's DOES NOT represent gay people.We have enough negativity to deal with and people like Perez just add to all that negative.
    Thank God we have people like Portia,Ellen,Melissa Etheridge,Tammy Michaels,Neil Patrick Harris,etc,that show that being gay is NOT that different from being straight. Love is love and love isn't wrong.

    Re: renesmeecullen – Gayhood? Ha! That's a first! Dumbass!
    Are you and haterboi related?You both are hateful idiots. If you don't like gay people,don't respond to posts about them. There! See how easy that is?

    Re: renesmeecullen – You're on the wrong site, honey. The Harper Valley PTA is that-a-way.



  24. 24

    oh portia/lindsey you are the cutest!!

    Does anyone else recognize that this is a remake of the cover of the first People Magazine published? That cover had Mia Farrow in her role in the Great Gatsby in the same pose with pearls.

    I love Portia in everything she has appeared in, Alley McBeal, Arrested Development and now, Better Off Ted. She has great comic timing.
