But how do they do Thanksgiving??
How can you eat turkey if you're vegan?
Can vegans have stuffing? Cranberry sauce?? Soft rolls with butter???!!!
Ellen, talking about being vegan on Thanksgiving, said:
Every year for past two decades, Sir Elton John's Oscar bash has been a must-attend!
Foster the People will also performing at the Oscar party as well.
Funds raised will go towards the Elton John AIDS Foundation which provides programs aimed at preventing, educating, and treating AIDS culture.
This sounds like quite an Oscar party!

"But at the time, I thought, 'Okay, my arms look awful so I should cover them up, but my legs look pretty okay now," says Portia. "I didn't think I was crazy to only eat 300 calories a day. That made perfect sense to me."
In her new memoir, Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain, Portio opens up about her troubled times with anorexia and bulimia, and the societal pressure she felt to hide the fact that she was gay.
Said de Rossi:
"My struggle with anorexia, coming to terms with my sexuality, I realized I had struggled with self-acceptance my whole life. To be able to get to a point where you're just happy with who you are, I think that's when you know what real peace feels like."
Things are going much better for her these days — she’s happily married to Ellen DeGeneres and eats a balanced diet.
"Look, I don't think I'm perfect. I still don't like my thighs. But I'm not going to do anything to compromise my health or my sanity to change them. I don't want to have secrets anymore. I don't want to have a darkness that I feel that I should be ashamed of. And going forward now, without having anything to hide, the future looks pretty bright."
We’re so happy that’s she’s doing so well. You’re an inspiration, bb!

That is unbelievable!
She talked about it on Oprah:
"It wasn't that I was proud of it. But it was certainly a recognition for my self-control. I definitely had some pretty amazing willpower to get down to 82 pounds. And that's what I was holding onto to. I didn't think about anything else."
Thankfully, Rossi is much healthier now. She’s also happier now in her marriage with Ellen DeGeneres.
We’re glad she’s not starving herself anymore. She’s 37 and looks fab!
