Portia De Rossi’s Mom Didn’t Want Her To Date Ellen DeGeneres

“My mother would freak out about me dating women. If I called her and said I’d been out on a date, she’d start panicking and saying, ‘What if they found out? What if they found out who you are?’ So I’d say, ‘Mom, relax, I’m not dating Ellen DeGeneres, for God’s sake.’ It was really funny because when I finally called her and said, ‘Mom, guess who I’m dating? Ellen DeGeneres,’ it was that worst case scenario moment for her. I guess it was for me, also, because I had been kind of creeping out of the closet, but I’d never come out in the media and confirmed that I was, in fact, gay. I just lived my life openly and whoever knew, knew. But I’ve since realized that that’s even more damaging, because if people assume that you’re gay but you don’t publicly admit to it, it seems like there really is something to be ashamed of.”

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 »

Your Daily Ryan Gosling Report: The Gos Rocks A Onesie On “Ellen”


“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. For starters, I would go to the gym every day if there was even a .000001 percent chance of seeing Ryan Gosling on an exercise bike. And then he wears a onesie? And he gives onesies to the audience? 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 »
