Celebs chime in on DADT repeal

On Saturday, the Senate made the historic decision to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” which led to plenty of celebrities tweeting their excitement and patriotic pride.

“Modern Family’s” Jesse Tyler Ferguson wrote, "Stepping closer to Equality! Good Job America!!!! Don't Ask Don't Tell closer to being on the 'Remember-how-crazy-it-was-when...' list!"

Meanwhile, Kathy Griffin tweeted “FINALLY! Equality IS coming" in response to a follower asking her to talk about the news, and then tweeted another: "Reflecting on a historic weekend in fight for equality. Our national security & humanity will be stronger without #DADT."

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Star splits of 2010

Whose celebrity split is the most shocking?!

There are three big couples in final contention for the most shocking split of 2010: Courteney Cox & David Arquette, Sandra Bullock & Jesse James, and the most recent one, Eva Longoria & Tony Parker!

I gotta say, I think that Sandra and Jesse's split was the most shocking because of the way it went down. I also thought they made a good couple, despite so many people saying that they never saw them together as a pair in the first place.

What do you think? Would you say Sandra and Jesse's break-up was the most shocking split of 2010? Post your comment below.

Other big stories we are fired up about today:

Lady Gaga's "devastated" about her rescheduled performance in Paris, and Neil Patrick Harris got into a Twitter row with actor Eric Braeden.

See you on "Showbiz Tonight" at 5 p.m. ET and again at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN today!

She’s known best as the creator of “Grey’s Anatomy,” which is in its seventh season and the spin-off, “Private Practice,” which is in its fourth. The writer/executive producer is also getting ready to reap in the rewards of her new drama, “Off the Map,” that premieres on January 12.

Adding to her royal duties will be a yet-untitled project for 2011 that ABC just gave her the go-ahead to produce.
