Ellen DeGeneres' Empowering Anniversary Tribute to Portia de Rossi

Originally posted 08/16/2015 08:50PM

While accepting the choice comedian award at Sunday's Teen Choice Awards, Ellen DeGeneres delivered an empowering speech to teens in the audience, which she wrapped up with a sweet dedication to wife Portia de Rossi on their seventh anniversary.

"It feels good to be chosen, but there was a time in my life where I was not chosen – I was the opposite of chosen because I was different," said DeGeneres, 57, about her struggle to come out in the public eye.

"And I think I want to make sure that everyone knows that what makes you different right now makes you stand out later in life," she continued, "so you should be proud of being different. You should be proud of who you are."

Scandal Recap: Lena Dunham Goes Fifty Shades of Grey ... and Someone Gets Murdered

Originally posted 03/19/2015 11:25PM

Lena Dunham's Scandal debut started out as a Fifty Shades of Grey situation that Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) needed to fix.

And just when it looked like her character might be getting a Sex and the City ending, Huck (Guillermo Díaz) gave her a fate more suited for Law and Order: SVU.

Thursday's episode was all about feminist issues: the line between owning your sexuality and being abused, the scrutiny a successful woman is subjected to versus a man. Though the Girls creator met a tragic end, our heroine rediscovered her erotic power with – surprise! – a man besides Jake (Scott Foley) or Fitz (Tony Goldwyn).
