Rosie Dishes On Lesbianism In Hollywood's Past

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayRosie O'DonnellEllen DeGeneresMelissa Etheridge

Before Rosie and other celebs came out publicly, many of Hollywood's lesbians were underground.

Rosie stopped by Watch What Happens and dished with Andy Cohen on lifestyles of Hollywood's lesbians.

The talk host spoke on clues she and Ellen gave audiences. She spoke with Ellen before she appeared on Rosie's old show about outting Ellen's character on Ellen's sitcom.

Ellen stated "We find out she's Lebanese. "There have been clues, you see her eating baba ghanoush."

Which Rosie replies:, "Maybe I'm Lebanese. I could be Lebanese myself." She explains the comments.

I didn't want [Ellen] to be out there alone, and we were friendly at the time … She had called me and told me she was going to have her character come out. I said to her, let's play it, lets walk the line … and she said OK. And I think gay people got it, but straight people did not.

Rosie also talks about how underground parties were held for Hollywood's lesbians.

She harkens to days of secret parties featuring Melissa Ethridge, Ellen, and a young Sara Gilbert.

    Looks like Rosie is making the rounds, trying to drum up some interest in her show, which no one has any interest in
    IF you have to go on with Andy, and Piers, sends out a signal your real desperate

    Reminds me one of the best scenes from the Golden Girls:

    Sophia: For starters, Jean is a lesbian.
    Dorothy: Ma.
    Blanche: What’s funny about that?
    Sophia: You aren’t surprised?
    Blanche: Of course not. I mean I’ve never known any personally, but isn’t Danny Thomas one?
    Dorothy: Not Lebanese, Blanche! Lesbian!

    Classic!
