"EVERY DAY IS LESBIAN LIFE PARTNER DAY!"
(Disclaimer: Via iVillage, which featured this story from The National Enquirer...)
Formerly the sarcastic daughter on Roseanne (and ever the adopted sister of surgically enhanced former prairie resident Melissa Gilbert), Sara Gilbert and her live-in lesbian lover (and suspected MOT) Alison Adler announced the birth of their son. For those of you who didn't know they were expecting, Allie carried the baby, which was the product of a sperm donor.
Now, here's what I don't understand, and where I have to "consider the source." The Enquirer reports:
Close friends EllenDeGeneres and Melissa Etheridge have already been by to see the baby. And Ellen has said that she wants to have a baby with her longtime companion Alexandra Hedison more than ever, now that she's seen Sara and Allie's little one.
First of all, are all lesbians friends? I know that all Jews aren't friends. For instance, when Debra Messing had her baby, she didn't even call me.
And secondly, wasn't the breakup of Ellen and Alexandra's relationship all over the Daily News yesterday?
On Friday it was reported that DeGeneres had split with her girlfriend of four years, photographer-director Alexandra Hedison. We're told the real reason for the break is that DeGeneres is now deeply in love with de Rossi, the Australian-born "Arrested Development" diva. DeGeneres, 46, and de Rossi, 31, first met nine months ago on a photo shoot, we're told. They fell "instantly in love," de Rossi gushed to pals at the time. But DeGeneres remained loyal to Hedison, whom she often credited with "saving her life" at a time of crisis. However, when DeGeneres and de Rossi met up again at VH1's "Big in '04" awards gala in L.A. on Dec. 1, events took their natural course.
This is one of the reasons I don't read these gossip tabloids. It just leaves me confused.
I do love Ellen DeGeneres, though. But only as a friend.
