Ted Allen Announces Engagement To Barry Rice

Ted Allen is wasting no time taking full advantage of the Supreme Court’s most recent ruling.

On the same day America’s most important justices shot down DOMA and dismissed Prop 8, the Chopped host Tweeted that he’s engaged to his very long-time partner.

“Proud to announce on this historic day that my partner of 20 years, Barry Rice, and I are engaged to be married,” the Food Network personality wrote yesterday, ending his exciting statement with a smiley emoticon.

And Allen wasn’t the only one to rejoice in the Supreme Court news with news of his own.

Melissa Etheridge announced her engagement to Linda Wallem, while Kristen Bell asked Dax Shepard to marry her.

Congrats all around!
