Heche was nominated by Emmy Award for her performance in the 2004 Lifetime movie, Gracie’s Choice, and earned a Tony nomination for the Twentieth Century. During the late 1990s, she rose to fame with a string of hit movies, including I Know What You Did Last Summer, Volcano, Volcano, and Six Days Seven Nights. She has turned to television more recently, and was last seen in a recurring role on NBC’s Chicago P.D.
Heche dated Ellen DeGeneres from 1997 to 2000, and she recently spoke about their relationship at DeGeneres’ talk show in light of the “toxic” workplace environment scandal. She told Mr. Warburton Magazine that their time was a beautiful part of her life and the one that she wears with honor. She was a part of a revolution that created a social change, and she could not have done that without falling in love with her.
Stause starred in Days of Our Lives as Jordan Ridgeway and All My Children as Amanda Dillon. She also works as a real estate agent and stars in the online streaming service providing platform, Netflix’s Selling Sunset. The third season of the show was released on August 7.
