While you were busy ogling Olympic beach volleyball players, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi were finalizing their wedding plans. That’s right, kids: Ellen and Portia are getting married this weekend.
The New York Post reported that the ceremony would be small, around 20 of Portia and Ellen’s closest friends and family, and that Portia would wear a form-fitting dress by Zac Posen. (I’ll bet Ellen wears a pantsuit.)
Days after the California Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriages in May, Ellen announced on her show that she and Portia would wed.
“Planning a wedding is very stressful,” she told a reporter at the Daytime Emmy Awards. “It’s crazy. My gardener is now invited.”
“I think someday people will look back on this like women not having the right to vote and segregation and anything else that seems ridiculous that we don’t all have the same rights,” she concluded.
Well said. Best wishes, you two love birds.
