Gushing over the sweet couple, a confidante revealed:
PEREZ REWIND! Watch Ellen DeGeneres & Rosie O’Donnell HIGHlariously Address Their Gay Rumors In 1996, Before They Both Came Out!
Being in the closet suuuucks.
When Ellen dropped by Rosie’s hit talk show that year, the two decided to shake things up together. And what happened during their interview became an instant TV CLASSIC!
They may not have held hands, looked into the camera and shouted, “We’re lesbians! Deal with it!” But they came pretty close in a deliciously tongue-in-cheek bit!
