Mike Signorile pointed me to this clip from last Friday’s O’Reilly Factor on which Ellen’s marriage announcement was discussed.
The show’s “marketing expert” talking head Laura Ries says Ellen should just shut up about her personal life and gay marriage.
Says Ries: “This is great for gay marriage, but this is terrible for a talk show. Talk show hosts are best when we know little about them, when they put the light on the guest and not their own issues…”
Plus, Ries adds, it will scare the advertisers and, by the way, “How did a 50-year-old woman get a 35-year-old woman?”
Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP…
