First of all I would like to start off by telling Ellen DeGeneres congratulations on her win for her fourth consecutive trophy for best talk show host at the 35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards Show Friday night. Ellen is from my home town, New Orleans so I have got to say “You go girl!”

I like watching Ellen’s talk show. I think she has done some awesome charity work through her show when disasters hit the world and to top that all off the woman has a heart of gold not to mention that she is a great entertainer.

Ellen, 50, made an announcement public on her talk show last month that she and Portia De Rossi, 35, plan to marry after the California Supreme Court overturned a law which banned gay marriages. No date had been set at the time. They have been dating since December 2004.

Finally the couple has set a date and De Rossi showed up at the Awards show Friday night wearing her sparkling marquis cut engagement ring set with pink diamonds. DeGeneres says they are planning a dream wedding which will include performances by some incredible people. She also plans to fly De Rossi’s family from Australia in so they can be there for the wedding. The date for the wedding has not been announced to the puplic yet though.

With Ellen’s great sense of humor she was reported as saying, “Planning a wedding is very stressful. It’s crazy, my gardener is now invited.”

I wish the two of them all the best in their future.
