    All the best to them. They seem very happy together.

  • Dxley

    There was no “surprise”. They’re just great actors!

  • pauleky

    @Dxley: I’ll bet you’re fun at parties.

  • eigilvesti

    @pauleky: snap!

    Dxley the quintessential bitter gal who is home every Sat night with a gallon of Haagen Daz eating from the container sitting in a mu mu cursing the world for not understanding her beauty. Ms. Bitter and her party of one, your take out is ready….just look for the 3 shopping bags at the register. The free extra large pizza is on us for being such a good customer.

    Stanhope, if only you knew. You’re describing the total opposite of me, and it doesn’t matter because I’m a happy man. I was president in high school, prefect in 1st and 3rd year at university. Not only for my brains but also my dashing good looks, killer body, snow white winning smile. I’m an engineer(I’ve said this a few times already), so basically I’m every gay man’s dream and my lover is an actuary. We’re anything but bitter and despite all the money, we still stay in amazing shape. Back to the matter at hand, this was no surprise. It’s just fake! These ppl should gave degrees in drama, because they’re amazing actors.

    Finally Ellen has a gay couple on and gives them the gifting treatment. Usually it is only straights!

  • seaguy

    @Dxley: Jealous are we?

  • Triple S

    @Dxley: Aren’t you the modest type? I’ll leave you to talk about yourself rather than anyone else :P

    Those dumb homos knew exactly what they were doing went they went “viral”….they knew they’d be on good morning america and they knew they’d get all the attention they could handle. This is a disgusting display, they wouldnt know they meaning of the word sincere. Shame on Ellen for using these actors for ratings…imagine all the people working two jobs and sacrificing to make their wedding dream come true. If these two could had enough brain power to orchestrate a flash mob/hijacking a Home Depot and make a movie that must have cost thousands, they could have come up with their own gifts.

    and to everyone, No..I’m not bitter and single. I’m happily coupled but I believe this whole desire for 15 minutes of youtube fame is gross.

    @Dxley: I’m shocked that you found anyone that is as great as you clearly believe yourself to be.Speaking as a gay man, I prefer attitude over all the generic attributes that you listed yourself in supposed possession of. I’m not sure why you stay around us mere mortals when you and your amazingly rich partner could be out walking on water.
