TV Guide is reporting that Ellen DeGeneres' character on her hit ABC
sitcom "Ellen" will come out of the closet and reveal that she is a
lesbian. TV Guide reports that Ms. DeGeneres and the show's producers have
led the charge. The first nine episodes of the new season will deal with
the out-of-the-closet issues. ABC and the Walt Disney Company, which owns
ABC, have refused to comment on the TV Guide article. Expect both to take
a lot of heat on this issue.
