Ellen & Oprah: Perfect Together

What do you get when you put daytime TV's two most popular women together? The December issue of O, of course! Ellen DeGeneres joins the mag's creator, Oprah Winfrey, for the cover of the holiday issue, (well, there's actually four different covers!) and treats readers to a funny and heartfelt interview on the inside pages.

"Ellen DeGeneres is a woman who can make things happen," Oprah said. "When she decided she wanted to be on the cover of O, she pulled out all the stops. It worked — for only the second time in O history, this December, I'm sharing the cover with a woman I adore."

In the interview, Ellen opened up to her friend about finding The One in wife Portia de Rossi. "She is so beautiful and so smart and so funny," Ellen gushed. "I have that sense of 'I'm done now.' I'm settled," she says. "I know that part of my life is taken care of. I've got love. I've got someone who will be with me till the day I die."

The ladies married in August of 2008, before the state of California passed Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage. Because Ellen and Portia made it legal before the passing, a Supreme Court judgment upheld the legality of their union.

As for Ellen's new gig as American Idol judge, the talk show host says she's excited to be a part of the new season, which premieres in January. "They came to me, and it was a total surprise," she says of the Idol execs. "I like to try new things because I get bored so easily. And I like the show, so I thought it was a great idea."
