Alas, Margaret Cho’s Rainbow Dress Is As Gay As Dancing With The Stars Is Gonna Get

After Portia DeGeneres turned down Dancing With The Stars‘ offer to become the show’s first same-sex competing couple, producers decided there just wasn’t another homosexual out there that Middle America could bear to watch. After all, Portia is the wife of Ellen DeGeneres, a woman who has tricked millions of homophobic viewers into tuning in to see quirky dance moves and preaching about why gays should be able to marry. And Ellen was on board! So without Portia, the American version of Dancing won’t follow in its Israeli cousin’s footsteps. Which is too bad, but I’m sort of fine with not having to deal with any more Dancingcontroversies.”
