Ellen DeGeneres posted on her blog what she called her own “brief” to the Supreme Court encouraging them to overturn Proposition 8. In it she wrote: “Portia and I have been married for 4 years and they have been the happiest of my life. And in those 4 years, I don’t think we hurt anyone else’s marriage. I asked of all my neighbors and they said they were fine.” Ellen and wife Portia married during the short period when same-sex marriage was legal in California.  She went on saying “I hope the Supreme Court will do the right thing, and let everyone enjoy the same rights. It’s going to help keep families together. It’s going to make kids feel better about who they are. And it is time.” The talk show host revealed her sexual orientation to the public in 1997. [omg!
