On Tuesday, Ellen DeGeneres will receive the 2,477th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame ( Sorry, Kim). Ellen will be honored for making us laugh as a stand-up comedian, daytime talk show host, movie actress and for her work on the sitcom “Ellen.”
It was in 1994 that DeGeneres made her mark on the small screen in the popular ABC sitcom, originally named “These Friends of Mine.” The show would change its name to “Ellen” in the second season. DeGeneres made history in 1997 when her “Ellen” character came out as a lesbian. Ellen would soon come out in real life on the cover of Time magazine.
