The Oprah Winfrey Show. Shortly afterwards, her character Ellen Morgan also
came out to a therapist played by Winfrey and the series went on to explore various

Born January 26, 1958, her primary personality traits are represented by
the Chinese Zodiac elemental animal, the Fire Rooster. The candid Rooster will
tell you what is on their mind. When she speaks, she gives a frank and honest
report. Furthermore, it will be easily understood because of the acute
expressiveness of both her words and her non verbal communication. She has a
wry sense of humor meaning it has a clever and often ironically or grimly
humorous quality about it. Another reason people rally to her is her evident
self confidence which translates into a fearless approach to any situation.
Furthermore, her idealism lends instant stature to her efforts and wins many
converts to her side. There is no shortage of action with the Fire Rooster. She
does get things going and make sure everyone else is motivated as well. She can
be a fault finder with a temper; so, things better go right. When she is under
control she can be very charismatic and an exceptional leader.
