Among other entertainment industry heavyweights, Anne Hathaway, Martin Sheen, Jane Lynch and Ellen DeGeneres signed an open letter sponsored by Freedom to Marry, a New York-based group promoting same-sex marriage rights.

Just weeks after President Obama's administration announced it would no longer legally defend the Defense of Marriage act, his supporters want him to go further.

"Whether to end discrimination in marriage is a question America has faced before. It is a question that calls for clarity from the president," the letter reads. "We ask you to join us, and the majority of Americans, who support the freedom to marry."

The letter was also signed by moguls David Geffen and Bob Wright; former NAACP chairman Julian Bond; and Facebook co-founders Chris Hughes and Sean Parker.

Hughes, who is gay, worked for Obama's campaign in 2008, heading its enormously successful social media efforts. But in 2011, the climate is a bit different.

In an interview that won't air until March 21, Kendra Wilkinson tells Ellen DeGeneres that she has come really far in life.

"I feel so grown up. I feel so mature. I feel that I'm where I need to be," the Dancing with the Stars favorite said. "After learning how to dance, I come home and teach my husband all my moves and my son is watching... It's a family affair now. It's a family thing."

That just makes it so much sadder that Kendra and Hank Baskett are clearly headed for divorce.

As for Hugh Hefner's engagement to Crystal Harris, Kendra says she spoke to her former, elderly lover and wishes him the best:

"He really seems happy. You have to be happy for someone that's happy like that. I'm happy for him. If that's what he wants to do, if that's where he wants to be in life, I'm there for him. I'm one of his best friends."

Pauly D is hoping to find love in Italy, where Jersey Shore is set to film its fourth season, the reality star told Ellen DeGeneres in an interview to air Monday.

Similar to what Pauly told THG last month, he told the talk show host he's "looking for a girl who's funny, that has family values. Someone like yourself."

"Someone I can bring home to my mother. I can bring you home to my mother."

Ellen's reply after pondering that notion: "Yes, you could. You could bring me home to your mother. And I'd just go, 'Hey.' And then I'd leave." She's hilarious.

Despite the pitfalls of finding genuine love while filming a reality show, Pauly hopes "she'll see that I'm a little different. I'm a nice guy and she'll see that in me."

Good luck Pauly. Follow this link for our Jersey Shore recap from last night, and for all the latest on the trip to Italy, check out the latest edition of The Pulse ...

Thanks to the magic of Twitter and the Internet, we've all seen Justin Bieber's haircut already.

But the singer officially goes public with the shorter 'do on Ellen, sitting across from the host and handing her a gift about which all women dream: a box of his own hair.

"We're doing something special," Justin says on the episode that airs today. "We want you to donate it to whatever charity you want," adding that many others will be receiving their own unique, follicle-laden present.

It's a great move by the wildly popular artist. Multiple organizations will benefit from the softest, most gorgeous head Rick Fox has ever touched.

In Michelle Money's defense, she seems a lot less crazy on Ellen today than on The Bachelor. But she still admits she has a screw loose or several.

The Bachelor's latest castoff sat down with the host today to talk about how she was portrayed, who she thinks Brad proposes to and much more.

Tenley and Jake

Amusingly, Ellen gets her to admit she's crazy ... if only just "a little."

"You do a show like this, you know there's editing," Ellen said. "You maybe say "Hey, that's not who I was." Do you look at that and go "That's not who I was?"

Her response: "Yeah, for the most part. It's definitely part of who I am. I'm assertive and a go-getter but there are many sides of me that weren't shown."

The "assertive go-getter" part was definitely on display during her Swimsuit Issue mauling of Brad Womack, which ultimately led him to cut her loose.

But despite this week's Bachelor episode being her last, Michelle says there are no hard feelings, and wishes Brad the best with his true love, who is ...

Karen Sjoden, a 49-year old who claimed she was working as a private investigator, was arrested early yesterday morning for trespassing on the property of Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi.

Police say the woman was discovered hiding under cushions on the couple's deck at approximately 5 a.m., with a spokesman adding: "She was placed under private person's arrest and was transported and booked at BHPD for trespassing and prowling."

Kate Upton on Ellen

Bail has been set at $200,000.

Why such a high figure? Because Sjoden appears mentally unstable.

Authorities found a "rambling letter" on her person, one that referenced Hillary Clinton, Dolph Lundgren, Warren Buffet, telepathy and aliens.

Said Sjoden's daughter, Kayle, to Radar Online: "It doesn't surprise me about Ellen DeGeneres because she's mentioned people in her conspiracy theories before... no one took it seriously because she was never a harm to anybody. Now, it's obvious that she needs treatment for her mental issues."

We've always know that Ellen DeGeneres was comedic royalty.

But it turns out the former American Idol host actually has some soon-to-be royal blood inside of her.

Ellen revealed on her talk show yesterday that she received a letter from the New England Genealogical society and it told her she was a 15th cousin of Prince William's fiancee, Kate Middleton. Who knew?!?

Having never gone more than one full season without a boyfriend, it's not shocking that Jennifer Love Hewitt really wants to get married.

But we were still caught off guard by just how badly the large-breasted actress is dying to walk down the aisle, a fact she made clear during an appearance on Ellen this week.

Jennifer Lovw Hewitt and Ellen DeGeneres

Asked if she has an engagement ring chosen just in case Alex Beh pops the question, JLH replied:

"I actually have three because I feel like I'm doing the guy a favor. I feel women are very confusing. We never know what we want and we're not very good at nailing that down for them. And I feel like I don't want to be upset if he picks a bad ring, so I feel like having three picked out and saying, "Look! Look at this plethora of things you can chose from!"

Hewitt was engaged to Ross McCall but broke off the engagement in early 2009. No word on whether or not the ring he chose played a role in the split.

Ellen DeGeneres Quotes

I’m thrilled that the California supreme court overturned the ban on gay marriage. I can’t wait to get married. We all deserve the same rights, and I believe that someday we’ll look back on this and not allowing gays to marry will seem as absurd as not allowing women to vote.

Ellen DeGeneres

You showed us something in that film that I have not seen for a very, very long time.
