Yo go Glen Coco!!!

Daniel Franzese, who infamously played too-gay-to-function Damian on Mean Girls, announced he’s engaged. The 38-year-old actor took to Twitter to share the good news.

According to People, Franzese popped the question to Joseph Bradley Phillips at a Starbucks in North Hollywood. That’s where they met for the first time over a year ago. With the help of one of the baristas, who handed Daniel a special cup with rings inside, Daniel executed his touching proposal on bended knee.

“Since I first saw you here, you have opened your heart to me, and I vow to God that for the rest of my life to honor and protect that heart if you will be my husband. Will you marry me?”

Awwwwwww! Congrats to the happy couple. Check out pics from the engagement below. Franzese can next be seen in the Looking wrap up movie airing on HBO later this summer.

After being engaged for three years, Project Runway winner Christian Siriano finally tied the knot with his longtime love Brad Walsh. The two held a private outdoor ceremony in Connecticut this past weekend.

The chic affair requested all the guests wear white with the two grooms donning black attires. As you would expect, the wedding featured plenty of celebrities including Kelly Osborne, Orange Is The New Black’s Danielle Brooks, ANTM alum Jay Manuel, Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks Alicia Silverstone and more. 3rd Rock From The Sun actress Kristen Johnston officiated the ceremony.

“She’s a close friend and a beautiful writer, and she knows us both so well, so it made sense for her to officiate,” the couple shares with Brides.com. “She got ordained just for us!”

Colombia Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!
colombia-same-sex-marriage

The predominantly Catholic country has become the fourth South American country to allow same-sex marriage. Colombia follows Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay to formally recognize rights for same-sex couples. Argentina was the first Latin American country to do so back in July 2010.

“The judges affirmed by a majority that marriage between people of the same sex does not violate constitutional order,” presiding Judge Maria Victoria Calle told the court. “The current definition of the institution of marriage in civil law applies to them in the same way as it does for couples of the same sex.”

In a 6-3 decision, the Colombian Constitutional Court declared it was unconstitutional to ban same-sex marriage. The six in favor ruled “all people are free to choose independently to start a family in keeping with their sexual orientation… receiving equal treatment under the constitution and the law.” The ruling restores benefits to same-sex couples who are already married.

“The right to marry and to form a family are fundamental rights that States must protect. Limiting marriage to heterosexual couples violates the right to nondiscrimination and equality,” said José Miguel Vivanco, Executive Director of the Human Rights Watch Americas Division. “The court’s decision to grant all Colombians, regardless of their sexual orientation, the right to marry the people they love is a landmark move for human rights in the country.”

Congrats to our fellow brothers and sisters in Colombia!!!

Another celebrity has married his longtime partner.

Nathan Lane and producer-playwright Devlin Elliott wed earlier this week. People confirms the couple of 18 years married in a small ceremony at City Hall on Tuesday.

In addition to tying the knot, the two recently collaborated together professionally. They worked on a children’s book titled Naughty Mabel, based on their pet French bulldog.

Lane can next be seen in American Crime Story playing OJ Simpson’s lawyer, F. Lee Bailey.

Congrats to the happy couple.

AWWWW!!!! This genuinely warms the cockles of my heart. I love Victor Garber.

“YES WE DID! #justgotmarried #elopedintofino #canada @therealvictorgarber #after16years.” – Instagram caption of photo above.

Over the weekend, the 66-year-old actor married his longtime partner, 52-year-old artist Rainer Andreesen. Even though the two have been dating since 1999, Garber only publicly acknowledged their relationship two years ago in an interview where he spoke about his sexuality for the first time.

Garber, whose long list of credits include Alias, Argo, Titanic, The First Wives Club to name a few, can currently be seen on The Flash/Arrow spin-off DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

This past week, my partner and I celebrated our 15th anniversary. I guess I have only one more year to go to pop the question 😉 Congrats to Garber and his husband. We wish you a long and happy future together.

Looks like this May-December romance is in it for the long haul. Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black are heading down the aisle.

Rather than taking to social media or hiring a publicist to announce their engagement, the 21-year-old Olympic diver and 41-year-old Academy Award-winning screenwriter went all old-school. They took out a £200 ad in the UK Sunday Times to share the good news.

“The engagement is announced between Tom, son of Robert and Debra Daley of Plymouth, and Lance, son of Jeff Bisch of Philadelphia and Anne Bisch of Lake Providence.”

How adorable is that? Daley and Black have been dating for two years, shortly after Tom publicly came out. Daley’s mom, Debbie talked to The Plymouth Herald about her son’s engagement. Read her thoughts below, along with details about their big day.

ellen-degeneres-season-13

Ellen Degeneres kicks off Season 13 of her long-running daytime talk show this week. The 57-year-old scored a major coup for the premiere by snagging one of today’s most-talked about personalities. Caitlyn Jenner makes her talk show debut on Ellen. And it wasn’t a walk in the park.

Degeneres played hardball, asking the transgender reality star about how her political views have evolved over the years. Jenner defended her Republican views but reveals her stance on same-sex marriage has softened over the years.

The exchange is light but serious at the same time. It’ll be interesting to see how the rest of the interview goes. Check out a preview below.
