What I like most about this, is not just that Ellen is a lesbian, but that she's a 50-year-old tomboy. The thing that strikes me as funny, though, is that Ellen doesn't seem the type to wear make-up in her everyday life. Sure, she wears tons of it when she's on TV, but do you think she really puts lipstick and rouge on when she leaves the house?
Although this has nothing to do with make-up, I also find it amusing that I often get letters from straight women telling me of their crushes on Ellen. One person sent me a pages long description of an erotic "dream" she had about the talk show host. But more often than not, I get letters like this one from Carol in Ontario:
I'm a woman, married and reasonably happy. I've long had a "girl" crush on Ellen DeGeneres. I thought today, after watching this show that I feel so much affection for her, I'm physically attracted to her, often feel envious of those people from her audience who get to hug her and would love to be one of her female friends. I totally adore her. I can find many women attractive but rare is the woman I meet (even see on television) that I feel that much fondness for.What about you? Do you have a girl crush on Ellen? What do you think it is about her that makes middle America swoon? Add your comments below:
