With more and more people becoming open with others’ sexualities (or their own, in any case), it’s only fitting that we pay tribute to those moments that truly awed us. Here are Hollywood’s 10 proudly gay celebs!
2012 has been a huge year for celebrity couples, as this year has seen many vicious break-ups, but also its fair share of celebrity weddings and engagements. Here are some of the most noteworthy celebrity weddings and engagements of 2012 so far.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Lively, 25, and Reynolds, 35, surprised fans when they wed in early September. Surprisingly, the couple was able to keep their engagement and subsequent wedding a secret, even from the paparazzi. The two first met when filming the movie Green Lantern in 2011, but they didnt actually start dating until later that year, and only after Reynolds had finalized his divorce with Scarlett Johansen. Lively is most well known for her role on the popular TV show Gossip Girl, while Reynolds has starred in television shows and numerous films, including National Lampoons Van Wilder and Blade Trinity.

There are blings about this holiday season and they come in heavy carat-age and loud cha-chings! It seems Christmas is the best time to get down on your knees and pop the question. If you’re not rockin’ a baby bump, sport a blinding rock on your finger .
Rosie O’ Donnel broke her happy news during a commercial break on The Rosie Show as she described her proposal to Michelle Rounds. With her head down and a lump in her throat, she hands out the bauble to the NY based IT head hunter whom she met at Starbucks.
There were plans of a Christmas wedding, but it seems the couple are considering a late spring celebration to accommodate more friends and loved ones. O’Donnel obviously is quite smitten with 28 yr old Rounds, saying that she knew that Michelle was exactly what she wanted just a week after they met in September!
Truth of the matter was, O’Donnel had her gay-dar on the blink at the time and actually thought Michelle was straight. In fact, Michelle’s parents are in painful shock as they always thought she was straight. Well, that $100,000 rock on her finger certainly sets everything straight. Significantly, Rosie chose a platinum ring that shows off a ring of rounds that sets a cushion cut 4-carat diamond.
Rosie’ chidren with ex, Kelli Carpenter on the other hand, are excited about the news of their ……mom’s new found love.

Her shirt says she loves someone else, but Rosie O’Donnell predicts a rosy future for Ellen Degeneres as an American Idol judge (no pun intended). She said that Ellen would be much better than Paula, who “was often incoherent.” Well she’s right about the incoherent part, but that was also Paula’s charm, wasn’t it?
Kelli Carpenter-O’Donnell and Rosie O’Donnell were rumored to be separating. According to the talk show host, however, they are still a couple. In her blog, she wrote that “we r family, family is forever.”
Rosie announced her break from blogging some time back and she has pretty much stuck to her word. She has made an exception for British singing sensation Susan Boyle, however. Why not? Everyone’s talking about her, Rosie couldn’t very well not join the fray, right?
What does she have to say?
“”Here’s a woman who, at my age — 47, was perfectly content to live in a little village in Scotland and sing in a pub, and then she came and did this and two hundred million people saw her,” Rosie told Access Hollywood. “That’s like being hit by a tidal wave. We will never see the Susan Boyle that we saw that night again! That’s done. It’s been washed away.”
It’s not the first time that she has done it but at the start of 2009, Rosie O’Donnell says in her blog:
see what happens
on we go
and in ”
Followers of the celebrity are surely going to miss her haikus. Others simply wouldn’t notice.
“A lot of people have told me about the surgery and they say the hardest part is just being quiet”
Rachael Ray, the queen of cooking talk show television told the crowd during a charity event hosted by Rosie O’Donnell. Despite the grim news, Rachael characteristically stayed upbeat as she candidly spoke about her upcoming throat surgery.
“I’m having voice surgery on Dec. 16, so we’re going to celebrate very quietly……It’s fine, it’s just a little bump, I need to get rid of it though.”
Ray explained, continuing to joke on how she planned to write on a pad of paper to communicate, saying that she was going to “grow back the callous” that she had in grade school.
In October, Rachael’s reps told the press that the cooking star had found a small lump in her throat and had to have it removed. They said it WASN”T throat cancer. Phew.
Enough with the sad Hollywood tales of drug overdoses and nervous breakdowns.
Let’s look at the glamorous and fun side of the celebrity scene — and no one does glamour better than these people. Madonna (remember when we thought she was a bad girl? she looks lke Mother Teresa compared to Britney) threw a star studded benefit for UNICEF, co-sponsored by Gucci. Next to here are the power couple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, and Madonna’s now 11 year old daughter, Lourdes. Rosie O’Donnell’s there, too — though she won’t be touching the alcohol; she says she’s quit drinking.
None other that comedian Whoopi Goldberg will be replacing washed up celeb Rosie O’Donnell on “The View” this fall.Â Good ole Barbara Walters made the announcement on the morning talk show on Wednesday, to many cheers & applause.
Walters told the crowd, â€œI have known Whoopi for years. She is brilliant, funny and irrepressible, and is an enormously popular and talented star.”
â€œThis is going to be a great new chapter for The View.â€
WhoopiÂ has been a guest on the TV talk show several times before & will be making her moderator debut September 4, at the start of the eleventh season.Â Jeez, has it really been that long?!
Goldberg said she is looking forward to the task, saying, â€œIâ€™m really glad to be doing The View.”
â€œItâ€™s a show I like with people I like, and Iâ€™m looking forward to it.â€
Looking forward to seeing Whoopi back in action!
As we reported on Wednesday, Rosie O’Donnell plans to leave “TheÂ View” at the end of the season, citing a disagreement on contract terms.
Well, it looks like Rosie put that lightly.Â Apparently O’DonnellÂ pulled the number, 10 million out of her wide ass to ABC.Â Hilariously, Rosie asked theÂ broadcasting network for $10 million for her continued talk showÂ hosting for a year.Â Â Wow, what, did she not really want to go back on the show & decided to pull out a big one they could never agree to?
Interestingly, ABC wasÂ willing to negotiate, countering Rosie’s $10 million for one year, for $3o million for three years.Â ButÂ O’Donnell didn’t budge one bit, only wanting to doÂ one more year ofÂ the show.Â
Hmm, anyone up for giving me $30 million for co-hosting “The View” is more than welcome!
According to reports, O’DonnellÂ may be saying farewell to her audience on the popular talk show Wednesday.Â Of course, Rosie will more than likely stay through the end of the season, but dismiss herself afterward.Â
Unfortunately, Rosie’s rep was unreachable for comment sake, but they probably weren’t going to say much anyhoo.
You tell me- Do you think Rosie’s leaving?
Daytime talk divaÂ Rosie O’Donnell is up for contract renewals with “The View” very soon.Â With all the hubbubÂ & bashing about Donald Trump & all around mischief, we’re all wondering if the comedian will be re-signed or for that matter, if Rosie evenÂ wants to come back to the show.
According to Page Six, 44-year-old O’DonnellÂ is talking about doing “The View” for just one more year before launching her own talk show in 2008.Â But is there going to be many people lining up for that kind of news?Â You tell me.
