Ellen DeGeneres went on The David Letterman Show last night and delivered “The Top 10 Things That Have Been on Ellen DeGeneres’ Mind Lately.” Here’s the clip:
So Jane Lynch is officially a household name and everyone in the free world knows that Ellen is married to the gorgeous Portia de Rossi. I am liking the realizations I had during this Top 10 List. This also includes the fact that every lesbian I know is obsessed with Shark Week.
