Morning Brew – Ellen launches a lifestyle brand

Good morning!

The Root has a great piece called Are You Raising a Homophobic Child? Share it on your Facebook if you know someone who is.

Ellen DeGeneres is launching her own lifestyle brand. E.D. is is “a nickname bestowed on DeGeneres by her wife, Portia de Rossi. As for the dots, they’re more design elements than punctuation.” As for what she’ll be making, she’s starting with a “gift-oriented capsule collection for holiday” and will continue with “home to fashion to chic wares for some of DeGeneres’ favorite friends — dogs and cats.” Basically I’m going to have a house full of Ellen wares.


Rosie O’Donnell is in serious talks to rejoin The View.

Wolfe Video has picked up Of Girls and Horses, which we just reviewed and loved! So you’ll be able to see it for yourself soon.

Taylor Schilling chatted with Vulture about Pipex and being Alex’s other woman at first.

I would not have been able to handle [her leaving]. Alex is a really important element to Piper’s story. It’s not a part of her life that can be left open-ended. That woman is a foundational part of who she is.

It made sense that it started in this place of deceit. It was not bred honestly, and I guess you can see how that laid the foundation for everything that followed. It wasn’t surprising.
