Trivia

While Portia de Rossi Degeneres was a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show (1986) in 2010, Oprah told Portia that when Oprah played the therapist on the "coming out" episode of Ellen (1994), Oprah got more hate mail about that minor appearance than she had ever gotten during her entire previous career as a talk-show host and actress.

a great show and a great lady
3 July 2002 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

If there was ever a true American heroine it is Ellen. This great woman puts the c in courage, the d in dignity and the g in great. That she is a warm, wonderful human being and side-splittingly funny is just so much gravy. She and her great ensemble cast made every episode first class. Ellen's character was always so good-hearted, thats what I liked the most about her.
