Happy Birthday, Ellen!

  • Happy Birthday, Ellen!
In February 1997, Ellen made her homosexuality public while on The Oprah Winfrey Show. With art imitating life, Ellen then had her sitcom character come out of the closet to her therapist, played by none other than Oprah herself. The Puppy Episode, as it was called, was one of the highest-rated episodes of the show.
