'Dancing With the Stars' Wants Portia DeGeneres for First Same-Sex Dance Couple?
Fox News ^ | 11/11/2010

Posted on 11/12/2010 6:44:22 AM PST by WebFocus

Portia DeGeneres could be the first celebrity to dance with a same-sex partner on "Dancing With the Stars."

The hit competition series is "planning to feature a same-sex couple. You're at the top of the list,"Ryan Seacrest told Portia (who changed her last name from de Rossi to DeGeneres) on his radio show yesterday.

The proclamation seemed to surprise DeGeneres, who is married to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. "Goodness, you really do break news," she said.

Rather than flat out pooh-pooh the notion, DeGeneres said, "I'm not gonna pass, let me think about it. I used to be a ballet dancer. It's not completely a pass. You never know."

While ABC does not comment on casting rumors, the network is said to be keeping an eye on how the same-sex couple fares on Israel's "Dancing With the Stars," before deciding whether to go ahead with its own same-sex pairing here in the US.

Last week, Gili Shem Tov, an openly gay TV sportscaster, and Dorit Milman, a heterosexual professional dancer, became the first same-sex dance duo to ever appear on any of the 30 adaptations of the series airing around the world.

Porta De Rossi married Ellen DeGeneres during the brief period in 2008 when same sex marriage was legal in California.

I have stopped watching several shows because of the Homogenda being showcased. Surely, I am not alone. Apparently, hollyweird doesn’t care. They want to show their superior tolerance. I think they are showing they are jerks.

Portia (who changed her last name from de Rossi to DeGeneres)

Iirc, de Rossi wasn't her real name, either.

Well I sure won’t be watching it. I watched it this year for the first time with Palin’s daughter and Kurt Warner on it.

I won’t be watching it again if this is where they are going.

Israel is supposed to be a country where religion is a daily part of life. The article tells us that they have their first same sex dancing couple in their version of the show.

Did it affect the ratings there?

OT, but I can’t believe Cover Girl is using EdeG in their ads. How many women want to look like an over-fifty butch lesbian? I’m sure Cover Girl ran focus groups. Maybe there’s a lot of women who embrace the PC. Maybe there’s a lot of women who say, dang she’s got nice skin for an over-fifty butch lesbian. I’ll get me some of that foundation.*

No matter the positives, the negatives have got to be high, and how many advertisers want to court negatives? It’s suicide, in this case by Kool-aid.

ABC got fantastic ratings this year for DWTS, mostly because of Bristol Palin.

Maybe that made them think that stirring a little politics in will help ratings.

My prediction: if they do this, they will get high ratings for the first show because of the curiosity factor and then sink to the ocean floor.

Israel is a far different society than is ours, even apart from religion.

Some things good, others not

NOW- when will DWTS have the first muslim couple? The burkas ought to make cute tango costumes and it will be interesting to see where the unmarried woman’s chaperone stands during the rhumba

I suspect you are right. Some will tune in the first show so they can recoil in revulsion. Not me, though. Ugh

I don’t think this is the kind of politics that my 80 year old parents, who watch the show often, will tune in for.

They will lose an incredible amount of viewers.

Money. The same reason why beautiful young women have been marrying ugly old men for centuries.

And the irony of this is that when Ellen DeGeneres came out of the closet on her sitcom, like it was a surprise to anyone, it quickly went downhill and was eventually cancelled. The Ellen show became only about her being gay and less about being funny.

This is obviously a trial balloon.

DWTS is notorious for stunt casting. However, even from a technical point of view, I can’t see how this would work.

Who would lead? Would they have one partner wear male costuming and the other wear female (especially on the ballroom dances which are judged on traditional elements?) And, as someone has mentioned, with two females, aren’t they at a disadvantage with the lifts?

Maybe they’ll do it, but I just don’t see it.

My cat was killed by a stray dog this weekend. I'm certain it was caused by watching too much TV.

And then this morning my coffee maker failed to start my coffee on time. I knew I should have never put that TV in the kitchen where the coffee maker could see it.

Now I'm afrid to go into my kitchen anymore. Who knows what evils my TV watching appliances are going to unleash on my next!?

No she is not. Marriage requires one man and one woman. They are short a man. Therefore no marriage exists.

Godless, wicked, women flaunting their perverse death style with the possible aid of FOX? :

"For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.

Therefore GOD GAVE THEM OVER IN THE LUSTS OF THEIR HEARTS TO IMPURITY, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

For this reason God gave them over to DEGRADING PASSIONS; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is UNNATURAL (literally "AGAINST NATURE" in the Greek), and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing INDECENT ACTS and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. ...

and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of DEATH, they not only do the same, but also give HEARTY APPROVAL to those who practice them." (Romans 1:21-27, 32 Emphasis added)

While these two are enjoying and flaunting their pervesion and sin they are both heading for a Christless eternity in the Lake of Fire unless they repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ to save them from their sin:

"Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire." Revelation 20:14
