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.
