Yep,

I'm Getting Married

5/15/2008 11:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Well, she's gone and done it. Ellen's gonna get hitched.

A spy in the audience of this afternoon's taping of the "Ellen DeGeneres Show" tells us that after Ellen mentioned today's California Supreme Court ruling striking down the state's ban on gay marriage, she surprised everyone and announced that she was going to tie the knot with longtime girlfriend, actress Portia de Rossi.

Portia was in the crowd and after she made the announcement, the studio audience went wild, giving the two a huge standing O.

The show will air tomorrow.

Way to go Ellen!! To the best daytime hostess!!! Wishing you and Portia the best in addition to a lifetime of happiness!! If Portia makes you as happy as your show does me, then screw the laws and California and THE WORLD who opposes - it's ALL WORTH IT!!!!!! We are ALL human and whatever makes you happy - gay, straight, whatever!

LOVE is LOVE; man & woman, woman & woman, man & man - who cares - just be happy and PROVE THEM ALL WRONG!!!!! And to those who left negative comments: I hope you find happiness someday instead of just finding fault in others. Looking in the mirror must be SCAREY to you????? GO ELLEN & PORTIA!!!!!

Kelli: "Rot in hell your quers"???? Grow up!! Maybe you can't understand LOVE IS LOVE but do you have to insult what you don't understand? Maybe someday you'll understand love is not a sex - it is what it is. And maybe someday you'll grow up and accept what you can't understand. MAYBE.............I'll pray for your judgment for He shall not judge lest he be judged.

Go Sarah!    

I am sure they are both very nice people, but marriage is a union between one man and one woman. Deep down inside we all know it is true.

There is a ballot measure with the November election that will void this ruling if it passes, so this is not over. The measure will effectively put a ban on gay marriage into the California Constitution. The gay and lesbian groups are on one side and the religious groups are on the other side. The lawyers are not celebrating because they know if gays and lesbians marry in thirty days- when the ruling takes effect- but the ballot measure passes later in the year, the marriage licenses will be worthless. If the ballot measure fails, the case is headed to the U.S. Supreme Court. The game ain't over yet, it's only halftime. I don't care who wins.

Not to be a Grinch (well maybe a little bit) but what is a 35 year old women ( Portia de Ross )
doing marrying 50 year old Ellen? It seem to me the age difference is too much.

To give sanction to homosexual marriage would be to give approval to that lifestyle, which the Bible clearly and consistently condemns as sinful. I believe that Christians should stand firmly against the idea of gay marriage / same sex marriage. Marriage is ordained by God to be between a man and a woman (Genesis 2:21-24; Matthew 19:4-6). Homosexual marriage is a perversion of the institution of marriage and an offense to the God who created marriage. God forbids and condemns homosexuality, so He clearly is opposed to homosexual marriage. As Christians, we are to seek to share the love of God and salvation through Christ with homosexuals. We are to be loving and kind to homosexuals, while at the same time not condoning their sinful lifestyle.

if straight people made up a thing called jump off a cliff and we'll charge taxes, but gays are not allowed. gay people would freak out trying to jump off that cliff. i kinda thought gays had it made for a while, but they're swatting at a bees nest now
