How do two actors being onscreen constitute a "reunion"? Will this be recognized EVERY time two actors who have appeared in something somewhere together work in the same project? Reunions consist of two actors who have worked together reprising their roles. As for the Ellen thing there best be some Bull Dykes. Real world has very few cute lipstick Lesbian types and a bunch more flannel wearing mechanic ones.
