According to People.com, a jubilant Ellen DeGeneres is about to tie the knot with long-time girlfriend Portia De Rossi. At the recent 35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, Ellen announced that they’ve set a wedding day – this follows their May announcement that they planned to make it ‘official’ following California’s Supreme Court ruling that the previous ban on gay marriages was unconstitutional.
It was a happy night for the talk-show host and her fiancee (who was sporting a stunning Neil Lane ring that featured a marquis cut diamond set with pink diamonds) – she went home for the fourth year running with the title of outstanding talk-show host.
People.com says they are still preparing “the dream wedding,” which DeGeneres says “is very stressful. It is crazy. My gardener is now invited.” The 50-year-old four-time Emmy winner said that only “incredible people” would perform, and parts of the wedding will be aired on her talk show.
The Empire State Building saw red on Thursday in honor of Cartier’s Love Day. For the third year the company launched a series of ‘love’ jewelry with 10 percent of sales donated to participating charities. This year’s celebration began in LA the day before with a host of Love Charity Ambassadors (Ashanti, Common, Emmy Rossum, Eve, Fergie, Good Charlotte, Hilary Duff and Janet Jackson) showing off their bracelets.
The newly designed silk-cord Love charity bracelet features two interlocking Love charms, in white and pink gold. The bracelets are selling for $995 — with $200 going to the bracelet’s designated charity.
The next day it was over to New York to the top of the Empire State building as Rihanna, wearing a Cartier tiara (as one does) switched the building’s lights to red in honor of ‘Love Day’.
