Ellen DeGeneres & Portia De Rossi Divorcing

Ellen DeGeneres & Portia De Rossi Divorcing

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres appears on the cover of the new copy of Star magazine with what appears to be a poorly Photoshopped picture of her wife Portia de Rossi. Could Star actually have some insider information about the state of Ellen and Portia’s marriage?!?

There has been jealousy, fighting and drinking according to the magazine’s front cover. They apparently had a nasty showdown which resulted in Portia storming out of the room. The magazine also makes it a point to state that Ellen is “faking it” for her fans. Why she would need to do that is beyond me, but she could be putting on the front of happiness so no one knows what’s really going on behind closed doors.

Has Portia really been telling her friends that she feels like a prisoner in her marriage to Ellen? If she tells anyone, perhaps it should be her wife and not the gossiping girls?

They fought so hard for their marriage to be recognized in the eyes of the law and the public, but that didn’t mean that it would necessarily last, right? What do you think?

Ellen DeGeneres Reacts To DOMA Ruling

Ellen DeGeneres Reacts To DOMA Ruling

You just know that Ellen DeGeneres has to be a happy camper following the ruling on DOMA earlier today. It’s a celebration for marriage everywhere!

Now, our favorite talk show host is speaking out on the rulings with regard to Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act. We are all delightfully surprised! It’s a good day for love — no matter who you are or who you’re with.

Ellen and wife Portia de Rossi don’t want children, but they do want their marriage recognized in the eyes of the law. And recognized it shall be!

Ellen took to her official Twitter account to praise the decision. She tweeted, “It’s a supremely wonderful day for equality. Prop 8 is over, and so is DOMA. Congratulations everyone. And I mean everyone.”

Ellen DeGeneres Reacts To DOMA Ruling

People magazine has the scoop on the ruling:

The Supreme Court earlier handed a major victory for gay rights in two decisions. It cleared the way for the resumption of same-sex marriage in California by letting stand earlier court declarations that Proposition 8 was unconstitutional, and struck down the Defense of Marriage Act provision denying federal benefits to married gay couples.

Ellen and Portia have been married since 2008. We’re happy that marriage will be recognized on all levels. Congratulations to them!

Ellen and Portia Drop 26.5 Mil on New Digs!

Nothing like looking at pictures of Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi‘s $26.5 million dollar mansion to make me feel POOR!

The two decided to buy a stunning, gigantic compound in Santa Barbara located in Montecito, which has some of the most beautiful views in California!  The deal went through last week, and again, this house is 10,522 square feet of utter gorgeousness! The mansion is on 13 acres of property with 6 bathrooms and 6 bedrooms nad 9 FIREPLACES…enough for a nice little party, if you ask me.

And a pool. Of COURSE a pool!

And this isn’t their primary home- Ellen owns several other properties in the Los Angeles area, including homes in Beverly Hills and Hidden Valley. Not too shabby, you crazy kids! (Can I be your friend?)

Portia de Rossi is nearly unrecognizable on the cover of OUT Magazine

Portia de Rossi lands the cover of OUT Magazine’s May issue. (Ryan Murphy share’s the “dual cover” this month.) The two land the cover for bringing gay storylines to primetime TV. Portia and Ryan share their thoughts on gay-inclusive TV, the way Hollywood treats gay characters, and a peek into their private lives.

“I don’t go into a project thinking I’m a groundbreaker or a pioneer,” Murphy tells OUT contributor Natasha Vargas-Cooper. “But all my work has a gay voice and gay characters and always will. I do feel with Glee, since it skews so young, the gay characters do transmit a certain message: You are not alone. You don’t have to harm or hate yourself.” Murphy continues, “I wish I’d had this show growing up. I think if I had, I would be a lot less fearful and a lot braver.”

Murphy’s mission of being gay-inclusive in his work was not an easy one to accomplish. “When I first started working in the entertainment industry, it was out of the question to have an authentically gay character on television. Forget it! Forget it,” he recalls. “Now it’s like, if you don’t have a gay character, something is wrong with your show.”

De Rossi’s experience in trying to produce gay stories for television, however, somewhat mirrors the gap between a powerful fantasy and the sometimes more uncomfortable reality. “I had a project that I was shopping around for TV called Butch and Fay, about two gay people, very famous actors who marry each other for the sake of their career,” she tells OUT writer Shana Naomi Krochmal. “That happened a lot in the past and probably still exists today. Every single person that I brought it to was kind of titillated by the idea but ultimately shut it down, saying that being gay in the industry just wasn’t an issue anymore. I know it’s not very popular to bring this issue up, but it’s still very difficult for actors to get certain types of roles. We need to hear it some more until things change.”

The other half of the message that needs to be heard, de Rossi says, is pretty straightforward: “I really, honestly think that anybody who is openly gay and visible is powerful. It doesn’t matter what you do, you are impacting people.”

Murphy is currently working to impact his viewers emotionally, and part of that comes from raising his new son, Logan. “That’s where I think The New Normal comes from. I want to provoke people emotionally,” he says of the show loosely based on his real-life experience with spouse David Miller. “Sometimes I feel a bit prudish. With Logan in the house now, I feel like I need to cover up every Mapplethorpe print.”

De Rossi, on the other hand, is pretty certain her impact will not involve children. “There comes some pressure in your mid-30s, and you think, Am I going to have kids so I don’t miss out on something that other people really seem to love? Or is it that I really, genuinely want to do this with my whole heart?” she ponders. “I didn’t feel that my response was ‘yes’ to the latter. You have to really want to have kids, and neither of us did. So it’s just going to be me and Ellen [DeGeneres] and no babies’—but we’re the best of friends and married life is blissful, it really is. I’ve never been happier than I am right now.”

PS: Do you think Portia’s had work done on her face? Ellen Degeneres certainly has a type, doesn’t she? Portia is starting to look like Anne Heche! Just sayin.
