ELLEN DE­GENERES (TALK SHOW HOST / PRO­DUCER / SPOKESPER­SON)

Pride Life Magazine - - FEATURE -

First known for her stand-up com­edy, and then her self-ti­tled sit­com Ellen (1994 - 1998), De­Generes’s reg­u­lar “gig” is now her five-days-a-week, hour-long syn­di­cated TV talk show, The Ellen De­Generes Show, which has at­tracted nu­mer­ous Hol­ly­wood stars — and awards — since its de­but in 2003. The 2014 Os­car cer­e­mony host re­mains ar­guably the only wo­man to have come out twice on tele­vi­sion as a les­bian — as her­self, on a Fe­bru­ary 1997 edi­tion of The Oprah Win­frey Show, and then as her sit­com char­ac­ter a cou­ple of months later (in The Puppy Episode) to “ther­a­pist” Oprah Win­frey! Other: Rachel Mad­dow (News An­chor/ Po­lit­i­cal Com­men­ta­tor); Harry Levin (Founder TMZ).
