Despite California's Supreme Court recently striking down a law banning gay marriage, Rosie O'Donnell says she and Kelli Carpenter won't be walking down the aisle anytime soon.

The two -- who wed in 2004 when the mayor of San Francisco allowed same-sex marriages -- are "going to wait until it's legal everywhere, because otherwise, I said to Kelli, we'll be going around touring the country on the marriage tour every state by state," she told AP Radio.

"Once it gets to be at the federal level, once every state recognizes the marriages of every other state, I think that'll be the time we would do it," she said.

Could it happen soon?

"Yes," O'Donnell, 46, said. "The same way it was illegal for black and white people to marry at one point and people couldn't conceive of that ever being different, I do think that two consenting, law-abiding adults who want to share their life together should be allowed to do that."

Ellen DeGeneres said she and Portia de Rossi will wed soon.

Star Trek's George Takei is also planning a September wedding with his boyfriend.
