Funny to think when Ellen first came out it actually killed her TV show at the time and now she's huge on daytime TV no less.
I don't think that's what killed it. It was very well known before that; they even joked about it. The show had run its course.
I think Ellen is so popular because she isn't all about her sexuality. It's just an aspect -- a mostly private aspect -- of her life.
