Hollyweird Lies And Cover-Up: Anne Heche (Part 8)
The truth about the perverted homosexual tryst and media cover-up of Hollyweird "superstars" Anne Heche and Ellen Degeneres, Hollyweird's first openly lesbian couple.
A few days ago, Anne Heche announced her impending wedding. The "lucky" groom is a punk Hollyweird cameraman who helped her to film Ellen's incredibly monotonous and unfunny HBO "comedy" special, and with whom Heche was probably fornicating behind the elder queer's back. The liaison occurred while Degeneres was desperately trying to save the lesbian "marriage" with talk of artificial insemination.
Having dumped Steve Martin for a woman, Anne Heche has now dumped Ellen Degeneres for a man.
A few days ago, the Fox News Channel reran a March 23, 2000 Paula Zahn interview of Anne Heche. (Featuring a clip of her character "humorously" overdosing on tranquilizers in the Disney movie Six Days, Seven Nights, the piece was cunningly titled "Anne On The Edge!" -- a clever but non-libelous reference to Heche's drug abuse.) A few weeks before meeting her husband-to-be, and only months before her August 2000 breakup with Degeneres, "gay icon" Heche proclaimed that she had definitively stopped having "eyes for guys." She would never go back to men, she told Zahn, because "once you've had a million times better, why would you want a million times less?"
Anne Heche claimed to be enjoying a "happiness" which she wished on everyone and -- after three years of advocating discriminatory rights for homosexuals in the national spotlight -- wondered why anyone cared about her "private" love life.
"It sounds like a fairy tale," Heche told Zahn. "It is a fairy tale."
It was amusing, in the months following their rancorous "divorce," to watch Anne Heche and Ellen Degeneres dance the sidestep trying to avoid each other and the paparazzi. By mutual if unspoken consent, each woman (the term is used loosely) "tactfully" juggled her schedule to avoid potentially embarrassing overlaps. When Heche attended a Women in Film awards banquet to receive her Lucy award (as in Lucille Ball, who like Walt Disney must be turning over in the grave at the antics of modern Hollyweird) for developing and directing a segment of HBO's paean to lesbianism, If These Walls Could Talk II, Degeneres bowed out even though she starred in the film as a "monogamous" lesbian struggling to convince her younger partner, the sluttish Sharon Stone, to conceive a test tube baby. And when the elder queer received an Emmy for the If These Walls abomination, Heche was likewise a no-show.
When the pair was honored by Amnesty International -- at a dinner attended by fellow honorees Martin Sheen and Senator Barbara Boxer of California -- Heche appeared in person to watch Degeneres make a videotaped speech.
At the Lucy dinner, Heche affected apathy about the media coverage of her breakup: "Honestly, I don't watch it. I'm not really affected by it. I live my life and go about what I do."
An amoral beast who will do anything to further her career, Heche declined comment about her drugged-out freeway speeding and responded with scorn when asked whether she was dating again.
"Do you have anything to say to The National Enquirer?" she was pressed.
"Yes. Shut up!"
Heche was more willing to ramble about her attention-grabbing bisexuality. "Does sexuality need to be defined? It's a lot easier for the Religious Right to say, Oh, they're born that way. It makes straight people feel safer, like gays have a birth defect. And I think that's kind of encouraged in the gay community. A lot of gay organizations don't understand me at all.
"And when I came into the picture, it also really threatened male sexuality. They're like, Oh my G-d, women can just go and be with women and this is OK now? Then what's a man's purpose?"
REPORTER: What did you think of the film Chasing Amy?
HECHE: Look at that message: I was a lesbian, but now I found the right guy. But I could say the same thing, like I was straight and found the right girl. So it's all blurry, it doesn't matter.
Nothing matters to Anne Heche -- who is no different from just about every powerful person in Hollyweird today -- but pursuing her sick, self-hating, immoral, anti-American career.
Asked what words she would use to describe herself, she replied: "Honest. Fearless. Ambitious. But honest, most of all. I'm always honest, even when I'm not in the limelight."
Heche was more candid about her desire for revenge. Referring to the people who had stood in the way of her ruthless climb to Hollyweird power, she promised: "Believe me, I have a list of everyone who literally stepped back when they saw me coming. Some are already apologizing. You didn't want to work with me then? Guess what? I don't want to work with you now. It's a luxury that I can afford now that I have a hit movie. Hollywood's an a**-kissing town."
Just one day after the first media reports that Anne Heche had confirmed the queer community's suspicions by seeing men again, Betty Degeneres, Ellen's supremely "supportive" mother, played a superlatively bizarre game of one-upmanship by announcing that her daughter had also found a new "love." Queried for specifics, Betty would only reveal that "it" was a "very nice girl." The mystery lesbian proved to be ugly Negress "rock star" Tracy Chapman, who was soon spotted with Ellen shopping and lunching in Beverly Hills.
In a journalistic coup, the aforementioned National Enquirer -- lately Anne Heche's arch-nemesis -- photographed Ellen Degeneres and her monkey girlfriend during an accidental meeting with Heche and her cameraman boyfriend at a Los Angeles sidewalk cafe. Suddenly catching sight of the pair at a table, Degeneres quickly averted her eyes from the spectacle of her erstwhile "lover" sipping a soda with their erstwhile hired hand. Meanwhile, Heche's eyes remained fixed on the inside of her glass.
"Gay people have prejudices as well as straight people," Degeneres said during the honeymoon of her sick affair with Heche. (No kidding?) "A lot of butch people don't like lesbians who wear lipstick. And so-called progressive types discriminate against the traditional couple of a butch woman and a feminine one."
"Many people in the gay community didn't accept us at first. Before Anne met me, she'd been in a heterosexual relationship. So in gay eyes, she wasn't really a lesbian. Which doesn't make any sense to me, but it's what we had to face.
"Right now, the jury's still out on my career," added DeGeneres, who received an ACLU award for her hellion degeneracy. "Let's see if I can accomplish what I want to accomplish, which is getting over stereotypes. Since I came out on Ellen, young people can say, Well, I'm like Ellen. It's not so bad, after all. I've had letters from kids saying, If it wasn't for you, I'd have committed suicide.
"I think that in 30 years, we'll still be dealing with homophobia, and it would be nice to have Ellen on Nick at Nite, someone whom gay kids can identify with. I want to help change people's minds."
