Heche was married to a man, then had Ellen for a gf, then married another man who she divorced and had a baby with her current bf. Perhaps, she stayed with Ellen for publicity but I do recall her claiming after they broke up she wasn't gay. She has said that she was sexually abused by her father until she was 12 years old,
As for 5% lesbo. I dunno.
I know several bisexual ladies. They tell me that they are attracted to both but have a preference. One of them is married to a guy, and her preference is men. Another one is divorced from a guy (he cheated on her and she broke up with him) and her preference is women. Of course I can't say that all bisexual people like both genders but prefer one. That's just the way it has been in my experience. I also know a few lesbian women. They are attracted to women, aren't attracted to men, and have had various degrees of relationship success. Once again this doesn't mean that this is true for all lesbians, this is just from my experience. I know a few gay guys. One is my uncle through marriage (one more is his "husband" of course) and they tell me that they never felt women to be especially attractive. Some of them tried to make a male-female relationship work and failed. Some got married, had kids, saw those marriages fall apart for rather obvious reasons. What does it all mean? Hell if I know. I think we can say it's more complicated than trying to label someone's sexual identity and then expecting them to fit that label.
