Ellen DeGeneres is on the cover of this Sunday’s issue of PARADE Magazine.  Inside her interview with the mag the talk show host opens up about Hollywood’s reaction when she came out as a lesbian, life with Portia, her decision to leave American Idol, and more.

Check out some more highlights from the Ellen’s nterview in PARADE:

On dealing with rejection in Hollywood after she came out as a lesbian in 1997: “I didn’t work, didn’t have any money. No one [in the business] would even talk to me on the phone.” With the outline of her talk show in hand, she finally convinced Hollywood that she was “not just gay,” she says, but “a funny woman who happens to be gay.”

On her family being understanding when she came out at age 18: “If anything, it was a shock to me. I’d always known that I had crushes on girls, but I also liked boys-though I wasn’t drawn to them romantically. For me to get in touch with myself enough to recognize that I was gay, and then not to stay private about it, was a huge step.”

On the behind-the-scenes nastiness of American Idol: “It was disappointing to hear things about the kids, the drama going on. Some of them are not as grateful as you would expect. All of a sudden they have fan mail, millions of people saying they’re great, and some of them just stop appreciating it.”
