The internets and social media networks have been all abuzz about Ellen Page coming out in her speech at the Human Rights Campaign Time to Thrive Conference last week. If you live under a rock and/or haven’t watched it already, you really, really should. Her brave speech (seriously, tears just listening to her voice shake), the support from her fellow actors, and the media’s response to an actress choosing to “live openly and ... Read More
If there are two things I love, it’s animals and Ellen DeGeneres. Since it’s Ellen’s birthday this week, she decided to break the rules a little bit and share her very special Super Bowl commercial ahead of time. Ellen stars as Goldilocks—Ellilocks, if you will—except instead of searching for porridge, she really wants to groove out to the perfect tune on the app Beats Music. Always the animal lover, Ellen ends up having a blast with ... Read More

The rumors are true-mors. Finally, after nine years, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences finally got their act together and decided to bring back Ellen DeGeneres to host the 80th Academy Awards which will broadest live on Sunday, March 2.Since I have apparently been living under a rock for the few months, I was surprised (as I hope some of you were, or else this post is redundant) by the new promo pics for the 2014 Oscars showing DeGeneres ...

The comedian and talk show host is currently developing a new sitcom focused on a lesbian lead. Degeneres is teaming up with former Afterellen blogger, Liz Feldman. The show is supposedly a lesbian update on Will & Grace, but will it be well received?
The history of LGBT sitcoms ranges from ... Read More
Get ready to let the awwww’s flow because this tiny human is truly adorable!

I’ve never been an avid reader of the magazine Cosmopolitan (except that time I gained 15 pounds while I was abroad and the “Lose 10 lbs. in 10 Hours” headlines sucked me in – it doesn’t work by the way). My roommate however, happens to love Cosmo and reads it religiously.

We still haven't gotten over the horrendous comments and actions of fat-hate coming from Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries. Luckily we can always count on Ellen to poke fun at such insanely ridiculous situations like these, and that's just what she did on her show last Friday. She has one thing to say to Abercrombie: "Fitch, please!" Not only is this clip hilarious, DeGeneres ends with a truly inspiring anti-fat-hate message about true beauty. She extends ... Read More
