ANI is reporting that Portia De Rossi made a video where she pretends to earnestly issue an apology for marrying Ellen DeGeneres in a video spoof. In the video she says:
“When I got married, all I was thinking about was my own joy at committing to love my partner for the rest of my life. I didn’t think about all the people I was hurting by getting married. That was selfish. So I want to apologise to all those people whose lives have been affected by me getting married…Paid for by married gay people who are sorry and The National Coalition of Bonobo Chimps.”
Sweet, right? For a moment let’s just consider the bravery of this woman. Backed only by the support of the press, the show business industry, and the state government this woman bravely agreed with everyone she knows by mocking mostly Christians and Mormons who support traditional marriage.
And you know what really burns me up? I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that this little video is just a cynical ploy to garner media attention just because her now show “Better off Ted” premiered last week to low ratings. How could you see a connection between this incredibly brave video and her need for media attention to spike interest in her failing television show? How could you think she would use something as important as her “marriage” to further her career? No, you’re thinking of Anne Heche.
