Stars Tweet About The Overturning Of Calif. Gay Marriage Ban

The overturning of Proposition 8, California’s same-sex marriage ban is in full effect! Dozens of excited celebs took to their Twitter accounts to tweet about their feelings on this matter. They were very excited!!

“YEAHHHHH!!!!! #PROP8UNCONSTITUTIONAL MOVING FORWARD!!!!!!!!” Ricky Martin, who announced he was gay in March, Tweeted on Wednesday following the announcement that Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker ruled that Proposition 8 violated civil rights.

“This just in: Equality won!” Ellen DeGeneres wrote on her Twitter account.

Prop 8 was struck down! This news is amazing!!!! Its about time! Congrats to everyone!,” reality star Kim Kardashian told her Twitter followers.

Adam Lambert celebrated the court’s decision, Tweeting, “We’re gonna throw glitter on this barn tonight!!!”

Lance Bass, who is currently out of the country, Tweeted from abroad, writing, “Congrats on the overturning of Prop 8!!!!”

Kristin Chenoweth Tweeted, “Prop 8 overturned in California! Praise God!”

“So You Think You Can Dance” judge/choreographer Adam Shankman wrote, “And justice is served. We are equal once more. God bless the letter of the law.”

Sandra Bernhard called for even more equality, Tweeting, “if we can’t have the same tax breaks, insurance coverage etc, then we are not paying for your wars, get it together right now.”

Journalist Lisa Ling Tweeted, “Happy for my gay friends today. Love reigns.”

Comedian Kathy Griffin released a statement to Access. As many know, Kathy is big supporter of gay rights and has a huge gay following.

“I am, of course, thrilled and heartened by Judge Walker’s ruling… As we all know, the anti-gay movement is certain to appeal this landmark case to the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco and, ultimately, to the United States Supreme Court in Washington. So, while today’s decision is a key victory in the fight for marriage equality, we still have a long way to go before my mother Maggie can break out her box of wine in celebration. I urge my friends and fans to stay strong, be vocal and take strength in the knowledge that we will be on the right side of history.”

California voters banned gay marriage by passing Prop. 8 on November 2008. This was only five months after the California State Supreme Court had legalized it.

The current ruling will probably be appealed and may eventually end up at the U.S. Supreme Court.

Kathy Griffin’s Diet Secrets: “Frustration and Starvation”


Kathy Griffin admits, “My body is slammin’.”

But maintaining those curves is not exactly easy. Her diet?

“It’s frustration and starvation,” the comic, 49, told E! News at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards.

“I’m hungry all the time, and I’m cranky,” added Griffin, who donned a gold sparkly Carolina Herrera gown she purchased from a sample sale and Chanel jewelry.

One hot body she has admitted she can never measure up to?

“I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’m never going to be Jennifer Aniston,” she once told Fitness magazine. “I spent too long trying to get a body like Jennifer Aniston. It never worked. I had liposuction, and everything else. Then I realized, oh, what if I just ate better and exercised.”

The panel of judges and celebrity participants will be announced in the next couple of weeks.
