Talk show queen Ellen DeGeneres is preparing to marry longtime partner Portia de Rossi in an intimate summer wedding, according to the National Enquirer.
But since gay marriage isn’t legal in California, the ceremony will be largely symbolic.
The festivities will take place in June in a beautiful new home near Oprah Winfrey‘s palatial spread in Montecito, the wealthy community next to Santa Barbara.
It would probably take place in the late afternoon, outdoors.
And Ellen, who has become close friends with Bernie Taupin recently, is hoping to have Elton perform a few piano numbers at the reception.
On the other hand, Boy George has been grumbling about Elton–and other pop stars.
On tomorrow night’s Channel 4 documentary, The Madness of Boy George, the former Culture Club frontman calls the Rocket Man ”a drama queen.”
He has worse things to say about Madonna, claiming she has ”no redeeming qualities.”
The programme airs at 10 p.m.
