Ellen DeGeneres happy Supreme Court will decide gay marriage issue: “It’s about time’
Ellen DeGeneres was appearing before TV critics in Pasadena earlier today when news broke that that US Supreme Court was taking on four gay marriage cases this term.
‘It’s about time,’ DeGeneres said from a stage in Pasadena where she was talking up the NBC sitcom One Big Happy during the TV Critics Association Winter Press Tour.
Ellen, married to Portia de Rossi since 2008 added: ‘The thing that changed the civil rights movement was when white people got involved and started marching. We need everyone on our side.
‘We’re kind of trying to do this march and we need people that believe in equality and believe in fairness and love. If we have people that will join us and give us that, which is only fair to have the same rights as everybody else, then it’s a wonderful world.’
Ellen is producing One Big Happy about a lesbian woman and her straight best friend who decide to have a baby together. Things get complicated when the man meets the love of his life.
