PopWatch never complains when two of the funniest ladies around get together and gab for our viewing pleasure. So we’re all for carving out some time today to watch Jane Lynch’s visit to the Ellen show. Lynch, who, of course, just won an Emmy for her fantabulous work on Glee, told Ellen DeGeneres that the talk-show host’s courageous decision to come out in the ’90s made it easier for her to be open about her own sexuality. “That’s because of people like you,” Lynch says in a preview clip (embedded below). “You were at the height of your fame and you came out. That just blazed the trail for me. It really did. It made it so much easier for me, what you did.” Applause! Applause!

What else can we thank Ellen for? Personally, I’d like to thank her for rocking all those black-and-white striped shirts so stylishly. It’s a fetish we share. So Ellen, can I borrow the cute top you’re wearing on the show today? I love the tie front.
