DeGeneres, Heche and Etheridge come out to support gay marriage

By Jeff Walsh

Ellen DeGeneres has been through a lot in the past two years.

She had to deal with the media scrutiny about the character on her now-defunct television show coming out of the closet, which was closely followed by the Religious Right boycotting ABC and Disney, which produced her show. At the end of that television season, she eventually did come out both as Ellen the actress/comedian and Ellen the character on the show.
