Portia De Rossi’s Ex-Husband Left Her For Her Sister-In-Law

“[My brother] had married his longtime girlfriend, Renee, just before leaving Australia and the two newlyweds moved into an apartment in the same Melrose Place-style complex that was home to me and [my husband] Mel. … The fact that Renee would wear skimpy, lacy underwear clearly visible underneath her oversized, gaping overalls should have indicated to my brother and me that a personal partnership was also forming, but when Mel left me and Renee suddenly sabotaged her marriage to my brother to be with Mel, [my] brother and I were left idiotically scratching our heads in disbelief. … My brother moved in to my place. … We kept each other company and we liked to go out for margaritas and Mexican food to commiserate.”

Portia de Rossi divulges in her book, Unbearable Lightness, that before she was Mrs. DeGeneres, she was married to a man named Mel Metcalfe from 1996 to 1999, and that he eventually left her for her sister-in-law. Wow, I hope someone is optioning this twisted tale as we speak. We’re just glad there’s a happy ending. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

“Ellen” doesn’t air in New York until 4 p.m., i.e. right now (DVR alert!!!), but this clip of Ryan Gosling on today’s episode has already made it online.

I know this is going to come as a huge shock to all of you, but I seriously want to marry him. I want to be his hausfrau and hand wash his onesie every day for the rest of my life, while he whispers sweet nothings in my ear in that sort of strange accent he’s using. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Portia De Rossi Talks Anorexia On Wife Ellen’s Show

If this clip from Portia de Rossi‘s appearance on her wife’s talk show tomorrow doesn’t make you tear up, your heart is made of stone. Portia opened up about her struggle with anorexia, which had her weighing only 82 lbs. at one point. “I don’t think anyone can really understand what it’s like to suffer from an eating disorder unless they’ve actually gone through it themselves,” Portia said. “I wanted to tell the story from the perspective of the person suffering and not a healthy perspective. I wanted to go back to that dark, horrible time and why I thought I was doing the right thing, why I thought I was doing the healthy thing.” When Ellen DeGeneres asks Portia what she thinks when she looks in the mirror now, Portia says, “I don’t think I’m perfect,” and you can just hear the love in Ellen’s voice when she says, “I do.” Alright, I’m crying again.
