Ellen Degeneres to marry Portia de Rossi
Her announcement is in response to this week's ruling from the California Supreme Court that everybody has a "right to marry" whomever they choose. The justices ruled that the state's ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional. It makes California the second state, after Massachusetts, that will allow same-sex marriage. The legal battle began in San Francisco when the mayor allowed same-sex couples to marry (Rosie O'Donnell and her partner, Kelly, married at that time).
Ellen and Portia have been together since December of 2004 when de Rossi was still on Arrested Development. And speaking of de Rossi, she has been cast in a co-starring role of a new comedy pilot for ABC. The series is from Victor Fresco, a writer and producer on My Name is Earl. It will be a single-camera series about "a moral guy trying to do right in an amoral world."
