Rocsi who is she dating
While public interest in her television series continues to be limited, the public’s interest in her personal life has taken off since she began dating Ellen De Generes in December. It’s not a passion of mine to become political in any way, but I do think it’s important to see gay men and women having big careers and very full, rich lives.” The fact that de Rossi answered the question at all — and that she used the “g” word, the first time she’s done so on the record — is the latest sign of a small but significant strategy shift in how de Rossi publicly handles her personal life.While de Rossi may not be happy with all the attention focused on her personal life, she is becoming more comfortable with it, as evidenced by her response in a recent interview with style magazine “If I told you I haven’t really thought about it, you probably wouldn’t believe me. In the past, de Rossi has consistently shied away from saying anything about her personal relationships in interviews, never officially acknowledging her well-known (in entertainment circles, at least) relationship with girlfriend Francesca Gregorini, but never denying it either.
De Rossi appears to have adapted to the new scrutiny by combining her characteristic guardedness with select moments of openness, still refusing to say much about her sexuality on the record — telling magazine “As much as I’d like to tell you about my private life, if I did, it wouldn’t be private” — but saying a little more now than she used to, and openly attending high-profile events with De Generes (something she almost never did with Gregorini).Though he has started his career as a producer in KTTV for the program “Good Day LA,” he has shown his potentialities in hosting the program.He is good at both of them but best known for anchoring in the show.Why does de Rossi’s degree of openness about her sexuality matter to anyone but her?For exactly the reason she states — because it important that people “see gay men and women having big careers and very full, rich lives.” And even with all of the progress we’ve made on that front in the last few decades, today most Americans can still count on only two hands the number of gay women that fit that criteria.He was always enthusiastic to host the programs from his early age.

De Rossi and De Generes made their first public appearance together at an after-party for the Golden Globes in January, and then attended the SAG Awards and the Grammys together in the weeks following.
De Rossi is also a frequent audience member at the tapings of De Generes’s talk show, and De Generes has begun to mention her relationship with de Rossi in interviews, as she did as a February 5th call-in on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show — although like de Rossi, she says very little about the relationship beyond acknowledging its existence.
While it is certainly not de Rossi’s or De Generes’s responsibility to represent all lesbians, as public figures, their sexuality does carry more weight than most people’s, whether they like it or not.
So while idle curiosity does fuel some of the public’s interest in how de Rossi and De Gegeneres present their relationship to the public, its affect on lesbian visibility makes it of interest to the gay community. But until we’ve lost count of the number of high-profile women who are open about their lesbian relationships, the willingness of de Rossi and others like her to be open about their sexuality still matters.
Interviews like this one are a step in the right direction.
