Shepherd's Daughter Steps Out With Lesbian Lover
CYBILL SHEPHERD's youngest daughter has 'come out' as a lesbian, a year after her older sibling announced she was gay.
Clementine Ford, 30, revealed her sexual preference last year (09) and now the Moonlighting star's other daughter, Ariel Shepherd-Oppenheim, has followed in her footsteps.
The 22 year old stepped out in public with her girlfriend for the first time to attend the 21st Annual Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Media Awards in San Francisco, California earlier this month (Jun10) to watch the comedienne receive the Golden Gate Award. The honour is given to stars in recognition of their work promoting equal rights for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community.
Shepherd-Oppenheim was applauded by the gay rights group for going public with the same-sex romance at the event and her actress mum couldn't be happier, reports the National Enquirer.
A source tells the tabloid, "Cybill's always been a huge supporter of gay people."
Ariel is the twin sister of troubled Zack Shepherd-Oppenheim, who has been ordered to attend Alcoholics Anonymous sessions following his arrest for theft in January (10).
