Celebrites Happy Over Prop-8 Overturn

Celebrities across Hollywood were excited on August 4 when U.S. District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker declared that Proposition 8, which bans same-sex couples from marrying in California, is unconstitutional, FOXNews.com is reporting. However, Walker put a temporary hold on his order, so that supporters of Prop-8 have time to file an appeal.

Actress Porta De Rossi, who married comedienne and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in 2008 when same-sex marriage was briefly made legal in California, said “I am ecstatic that Proposition-8 has been overturned in the state of California. This is an incredibly exciting and historical day and a big step towads equal rights for all.”

Shanna Moakler, who is the director of the Miss California Pageant and was against Carrie Prejean’s controversial stance against gay marriage at the Miss USA pageant last summer, tweeted “congrats to the @Noh8Campaign and all of the LGBT community!  I am so happy and proud…”  ‘American Idol’ 2009 runner-up Adam Lambert, who admitted he is gay after the season of the hit reality show ended, tweeted “We’re gonna throw glitter on this barn tonight!!!”

Even if the overturn doesn’t remain intact, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said “August 4, 2010 will always be a pivotal date for Californians…this decision affirms the full legal protections and safeguards I believe everyone deserves.”
