Ellen commits. Jodie splits.

“Yesterday, if you haven’t heard, the California Supreme Court overturned the ban on gay marriage. So, I would like to say right now, for the first time, I am announcing, I am getting married…. I’ll tell you who the lucky guy is soon…. I’m so excited. If I’m this emotional now just saying it, I can’t imagine how that’s gonna be. But it’s something that, of course we wanted to do, and we want it to be legal, and we’re just very, very excited.”

“Jodie breaking up with Cydney is shocking. She and Cydney have been together for so many years and have two children together, the potential fallout and legal wrangling from this split could be monumental.”
