Portia De Rossi and her wife Ellen DeGeneres went on Oprah and talked about their relationship and marriage. See the video of Portia and Ellen on the Oprah show below.
Actress Portia De Rossi said she was very interested in Ellen but was scared because she didn’t want to risk her acting career by ‘coming out’.
Portia said she spent years hiding her feelings from Ellen DeGeneres.
Portia told Oprah Winfrey, “It took me three years to actually tell her how I felt about her because I was on Ally MCBeal at the time and I was not living as an openly gay person.
“I was closeted and very, very afraid that if I talked about being gay, it would be the end of my career, so I wasn’t about to then date the most famous lesbian in the world.”
Holly Madison, who used to be Hugh Hefner’s main girlfriend, and starred in “Girls Next Door”. Holly says she doesn’t bother watching the new season that features the new ladies Crystal Harris and the Shannon twins. Read more of what Holly said below.
Holly Madison is now working in Las Vegas and said she doesn’t watch the new series of “Girls Next Door” because it annoys her.
“I had a great time with Hef and the girls when they came to see ‘Peepshow’ and hang out in Vegas. I don’t watch the other episodes though, because it kind of makes me mad,” Madison told Tarts. “The girls need to focus on what makes them unique and not doing the same things Bridget, Kendra and I have already done on the show. Even camping in the backyard was an idea I had for an episode that we never got around to shooting. And guess what they just showed? The girls camping in the backyard. I don’t want to look behind, I want to look forward.”
But Holly is doing fine for herself and is currently filming her own reality show about her life as aVegas showgirl and a “major life project nobody would expect her to do.” Madison also shows off her boobies several nights a week in her burlesque “Peep Show.”
“The ‘toplessness’ is worked into the show very tastefully and I was very controlling about when and how long I would be topless,” Madison explained. “Not because I am shy about nudity at all, but because I feel there is an effective way to do a burlesque show and then there is a sloppy way. I’m very inspired by Dita Von Teese and people who do it really well. Hef really liked the show, but I knew he would. He loves burlesque and the girls in the show are really beautiful. There are contemporary pop songs in the show, but a lot of old school style, too. The Red Riding Hood number reminds me so much of the sexy Red Riding hood Tex Avery cartoons from the 40’s that Hef loves.”
It sounds as if Holly still has some feelings for old Hef doesn’t it?

Russell Brand met up with Katy’s parents and it sounds as if they got along just fine.
“I’ve had the privilege of meeting Katy’s family. I always get along with spiritual people. For me the things that happen on a higher level are more important than transient things.”
Russell says his playboy life is behind him and he is ready to get serious with Katy Perry:
“When one is in a relationship one respects the restrictions that imposes. That’s the point of being in a relationship… I’ve been really happy in the last couple of months. All I know is that I have met someone who I like and makes me happy. I am very much fulfilled. Having met Katy she has certainly been a catalyst in changing my life but I have been changing my life for myself first and foremost, because it’s a better way for me to be living at this time.”
Wow! Maybe this could be the real thing with Russell and Katy! What do you guys think?
Mike Tyson was arrested on suspicion of battery charges after the incident with a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport. Read more on Tyson’s arrest below.
Mike Tyson was detained on Wednesday after his altercation with a photographer that reportedly got too close to Tyson and his family. Tyson was said to have punched the paparazzi in the face.
Tyson was released on his own recognizance on Wednesday night after posting $20,000 bail. The photographer was also booked on misdemeanor battery charges.
Tyson, 43, was reportedly at the ticket counter at LAX at the United Airlines terminal when a pap got very close to him and Tyson punched him in the face. The photographer hit the ground and reportedly got up and walked away, leaving a trail of blood on the floor from his cut on his forehead. Tyson was taken from the airport in a police car and the photographer was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.
Tyson’s rep said he was traveling with his 10-month old daughter and wife and that he just acted in self-defense to protect his child from the overly aggressive shooter.
An unidentified police offer told the Associated Press that the photographer had struck Tyson to get a reaction out of him and that the paparazzi will also be booked after he is out of the hospital.
Jay-Z opened up to Gotham magazine and said that having a baby with Beyonce is one of the couple’s top priorities now. Read more on Beyonce and Jay-Z below.
Gotham magazines’s editor-in-chief Cristina Greeven Cuomo reports that Jay-Z let it slip that having a baby is high on their priority list now.
“The most important thing on the horizon [for Jay] seems to be a plan to have children with Knowles,” Gotham magazine says in its November issue. “When [Gotham editor in chief Cristina Cuomo] asked him about having babies and a family, he said yes to that,” a rep for Gotham tells Life & Style.
Beyonce and Jay-Z are very secret about their relationship and even married in secret on a Tribeca rooftop and don’t often even wear their own wedding rings out in public.
If the baby rumor is true, this would mean quite a change in Beyonce’s thinking since April. In April, Beyonce said that she was interested in being a mother but was in no hurry after seeing the birth process up close when her sister Solange had her baby.
“I definitely want one, but I’m not ready for all of that,” she said then. “I don’t think a person should see that before her time. It was a little much. But I’m so in love with my nephew, and every time I see him I’m like, God, he’s just amazing.”
So is the couple ready to try for a baby? Time will tell.
