Ellen DeGeneres covers 'People' magazine; Talks finding love with Portia de Rossi

Ellen DeGeneres is featured on the cover of the latest issue of People magazine. Inside, she talks about how blessed she feels to be able to find love with her best friend Portia de Rossi. In the magazine, she revealed, “I’m grateful for everything. I’m grateful for my health, and I’m so grateful for the love in my life. Because not everybody finds that. Not everybody finds that best friend.”

She went on to say, “Portia and I constantly say to each other, ‘We are so lucky.’ Sometimes it’s lying in bed at night before I go to sleep, and I just say thank you to whatever, whoever is out there. I’ve gotten to a place where I really am just settled. Really. I know that I’m not going anywhere. She’s not going anywhere. I’m not saying the relationship took a while; I’m saying in my life, it took a while to find this.”

She continued, “You get what you give. I think you can’t expect someone to treat you a certain way. Whatever it is, if you’re getting a lot of negative energy or anger, you have to say, ‘Why am I getting this? Am I doing something to create it?’ And if the answer is honestly no, then get out of that situation.”

Now living in L.A. with their three dogs and three cats, the couple have always strived to put their marriage first despite their busy careers. “Our priorities are each other too,” she says. “If we had kids, then I’m sure they would be, but we are. And that’s important.”

DeGeneres defines family as “people who get you. I think the word ‘love’ is thrown around, like, ‘I love you’ is great to hear, but you want to feel it,” she says. “You want to feel that you’re understood, and they know exactly who you are, and they know how to take care of you. That, to me, is family. I don’t think it has anything to do with blood relation. Family for everyone is different.”

So what’s the best part about being married? “There’s no best part. It’s everything,” DeGeneres adds. “I can’t imagine not being married. I have my best friend, the person I want to spend time with more than anybody else in the world.”

Kudos to her and Portia for making it work!

Portia De Rossi wants babies with Ellen DeGeneres now

Portia De Rossi wants babies with Ellen DeGeneres now

Portia De Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres have already said that they do not want any children together, but according to the latest gossip, Portia has changed her mind. After reportedly checking into a treatment facility for an alleged drug and alcohol addiction issue, Portia is said to be keen on starting the next chapter in their lives together.

“All Portia can talk about is beginning a new chapter in their lives and starting a family,” a friend of the couple tells the magazine.

And though DeGeneres, 56, isn’t as nearly as eager to expand their brood, the star is “going along with it because she’s desperate,” the friend explains.

InTouch also alleges that de Rossi, 41, has consulted the Center for Surrogate Parenting in Encino, Calif., to discuss the couple’s options. On their website, the agency claims to be “dedicated to helping couples achieve their dream of become parents, regardless of sexual orientation.”

“Every couple is special and we make no distinction between heterosexual couples and gay couples,” the center insists. And while the Center for Surrogate Parenting says the process can cost about $60,000, the cost is just a drop in the bucket for the millionaire Ellen host.

According to InTouch, de Rossi created a video to coax her wife of eight years into her grand plan. “Portia made a video montage of Ellen with kids she’s interviewed over the years . . . It really choked Ellen up,” the insider says. “Portia hugged her, whispering ‘You’d be the best mother ever.’”

“She thinks a child will bond her and Ellen forever.”

Let’s hope that if they are struggling as much as it has been rumored, that they aren’t actually adding a child into the mix….

Portia de Rossi is Heading to Washington!

Portia De Rossi sours Ellen DeGeneres on marriage

Ellen Degeneres’ wife, Portia de Rossi will be joining the cast of ABC’s Scandal in Season 4 for a top secret multi-episode arc!  Degeneres was the first to break the news earlier today by tweeting:

“So annoying when people brag on twitter & that’s why I’m not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on ‘Scandal’. Oops.”

Degeneres and Rossi have been married since 2008.  Rossi, who was hilarious as Lindsay Funke in Arrested Development, was rumored to spend a 30-day stint at Passages – a rehab facility this past Spring, for substance abuse.  The time allegedly inspired Ellen to give up drinking in support of her wife.

“Ellen has always been a big drinker.  She loves her wine but she’s realised her behavior has only enabled Portia to drink as well, and she feels partially responsible for Portia’s rehab stint.”

The source explained: “Ellen loves Portia more than anything in the world and wants to make sure she’s healthy, emotionally and physically, and she also realised that drinking in front of Portia is just selfish.”

Can’t wait to see Rossi on Scandal.   And I think if the rumor about Ellen giving up alcohol in solidarity with Portia is true- that both makes a lot of sense and is great for them as a couple.  Living with demons is hard enough when not tempted with them over and over by your partner.

Portia De Rossi sours Ellen DeGeneres on marriage

Portia De Rossi sours Ellen DeGeneres on marriage

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi seem happy together, but there are new reports floating around suggesting that Ellen has “soured on marriage” since tying the knot with Portia.

Portia is said to be miffed that Ellen is a workaholic who has been flirting with other women, if the latest reports are to be believed. Portia has told Ellen that she wants her to work less so that they can spend more time together.

A source said, “Portia is very demanding. She wants Ellen to work less, and spend more time with her. But Ellen doesn’t want to – she has worked hard to get where she is, and isn’t going to let things slide. They both have expensive tastes, and Ellen has to work hard so they can afford them!”

Reportedly, the couple have been fighting over Ellen’s friendships with other women. The source said, “Ellen and Gillian [Anderson] have been close friends for years and set tongues wagging when they were caught sharing a steamy lip lock in 2000. Ellen has always had a major crush on Gillian, but she’s sworn up and down to Portia nothing happened between them. But Portia doesn’t believe her.”

The source added, “Ellen and Gillian adore each other. Portia’s not too happy about it and wants them to stop communicating. She’s afraid Ellen will be tempted to stray, even though the funnygal insists that would never happen.”
