The internet was ablaze yesterday, when TV host and Oscar presenter Ellen DeGeneres and her wife, actress Portia di Rossi were spotted in departures at Los Angeles' LAX.
What's On reported that they were headed for a private event at The Act in the Shangri-La Hotel Dubai. “Dinner at The Act is usually around 9pm, but Ellen asked if they could go earlier,” reported Ahlan!Live.com. “The Act’s performers put on a special show especially for them, which they loved.”
The Act is a 10,000sq ft venue on the 42nd floor of the Shagri-La Hotel the highest theatre venue in the world, and brainchild of Simon Hammerstein, a NY theatre entrepreneur and business partner at Variety Worldwide.
Both stars posed with The Act performers, and pics were posted on Instagram by singer/songwriter Nya Crea, with the caption: “Me, My Stupid Face, my amazing collegues and Ellen DeGeneres, after our show !!!”.
Last month, as part of the launch of 'Furious 7', the latest film of the 'Fast and Furious' franchise, Ellen's show featured Vin Diesel giving a way a two week trip to Abu Dhabi and a stay at Emirates Palace to one of Ellen's audience members. Furious 7 was partially filmed in Abu Dhabi, with over 200 actors locally cast as extras.
