How long til insecure lush Ellen and sad looking golddigger Portia divorce?
Portia seems particularly fed up.
Or will America's fave lesbian couple separate quietly to save face?
Can you imagine if they split up? It'll be Iggygate x1000 on ellen's show everyday. Of course, that's assuming ellen doesn't dump Portia for a younger, prettier girl, as is her pattern.
Portia seems like the insecure one to me. I saw her on Oprah and seemed like a neurotic mess. Ellen gives me the creeps. Something about her rubs me the wrong way.
Oh, you sad, old queens. You just can't wait for successful people to break up. Especially if they're gay. How's your cube or 8th floor walk-up?

Oh, you pathetic wretch, too stupid to have the slightest hint regarding the history of someone who's a major celeb. Ellen's past is a clear indication that she's unable to stick with any type of "til death do us part" situation.
I'm sure they have a few more houses left in them.
Actually, Portia is a step down from Ellen's previous partner, who was much more attractive, if you're just comparing looks.
That was mean, r2. Ellen is fake, and you know it.
[quote]Portia seems particularly fed up.
Evidence of this?
I agree OP, Ellen will dump Portia for someone younger, hence Portia's full facelift recently.
Portia was beautiful a few years ago when Ellen and her got together - what was it, they fucked each other in a limo behind their then gf's backs?
What a pointless and miserable thread. ED and PDR might not last forever - who knows - but chances are they're doing a whole lot better than the pathetic posters on this thread.
I thought Portia looked beautiful with her own hair in AD. She was hardly in show I wonder why...
I am sure there is a huge amount of pressure on them. I would bet Portia is the more insecure, remember her weight loss during Ally McBeal? It was like an anorexic stand off. I hope they make it though but seriously famous couples rarely do, so what makes them any different?
The relationship will probably run it's course with deRossi leaving first. I see her back in Aus with a younger woman and a kid.
I've thought they've been struggling for a while now.. not really looking that 'together' but they probably feel the pressure to stay together and not be a disappointment, considering their high profile as a lesbian marriage and all the gay politics that is going on right now.
Jane Lynch has split from her wife btw, after three years of marriage.
Olivia Munn is always kind of flirting with Ellen on her show and always trying to ingratiate herself into Ellen's life somehow. A few weeks ago she was on and bugged Ellen for half the interview to let her come to dinner with her and Portia.
Portia was sitting by the audience and she looked and sounded none too pleased.
R12 Back in Australia? Mandy Rodgers is never going back. Dropped the accent, ran from the horseshit and flies and bucktoothed hillbillies. Mandy Rodgers is never, ever going back honey
R8, that's sad. It sounds exactly like a less powerful wife trying desperately to keep her rich, powerful husband's interest.
Surely Portia doesn't *have* to do this.
I vote Portia bails first.
I wonder if there was a pre-nup.
As someone else mentioned, her interview on Oprah was a little off center. Plus she mentioned she hates having to move every year because Ellen's always buying and flipping properties. Can you imagine having to move every year? That alone, would tear some couples apart.
[quote]Actually, Portia is a step down from Ellen's previous partner, who was much more attractive, if you're just comparing looks.
Who are you talking about? Anne Heche?
R19, moving is probably different for rich people like them though, who just get other people to do the hard work.
Ellen has the 'Im bored' syndrome. Can't stay with one partner, can't stay in one home. I used to say it about Cher, though as she got older, think she settled down finally.
Actually, Ellen is a huge fucking step down from Portia's saucy ex, who was 1000 times more attractive, if you're just comparing looks.
Portia and Francesco couldn't keep their hands off each other, not even in public.
Why she went from a sexy, saucy adventurous to grandma is beyond me.
I believe they are talking about Alexandra Hedison.. That's who Ellen cheated on when she hooked up with Portia.
I think Ellen and Portia are the lesbian Angelina and Brad.
There's no where for them to go. They both peaked. And if they were to divorce it would severely damage their "brand." (Ellen's and Brad's brand. Angie and Portia would both survive a divorce, PR-wise.)
R21, in that sense you're probably right, but you don't really get a chance to put down whatever "roots" you might want if you're constantly moving. You never "settle down".
[quote]Why she went from a sexy, saucy adventurous to grandma is beyond me.
I would say that's where the gold digger thing would come in, but Portia's ex gf was also loaded...which comes full circle again to the gold digger thing.
Not nearly as loaded as Ellen. Not even 1/10th.
I'm surprised. Last I looked, Francesca Gregorini regularly got ripped into on lchat for being a dog/ugly.
Ellen is much more famous and much more rich. It doesn't take much of a genius what attracted Portia.
They should just have a discreet agreement to have women on the side and keep the relationship for PR purposes.
R25, I think that's why David and Victoria Beckham stay together as well (other than for the children). Together they are a great brand that would be damaged if they split.
Yes, David and Victoria are definitely worth more together than apart.
r20 it's Alexandra Hedison that people are talking about, not Anne Heche. Alexandra was not a diva, but Ellen got bored and dumped her. AH is a very good photographer.
[quote]Portia seems particularly fed up.
[quote]Evidence of this?
The OP can read famous people's minds on the magic moving picture box.
Someone call up that nude shot of Gregorini for r28. I can't find it, but it was white smoking hot. She's laying down, showing that beautiful ass.
Hell, grandma won't even wear sandals, just old lady shoes.
Portia's ex is nowhere near as hot as some are saying here.
How do you know Ellen is a lush?
My drool is all over that picture, but I did a quick search of old threads and I can't find it.
Back when Portia and Francesca Gregorini were together they were stunning as a couple. In fact FG looked better in many pix.
I just looked up Alexandra Hedison. She's not unattractive, but better looking than Portia? Nope, not at all.
R2, I hope that your glamorous, fabulous life never ends. And in fact, if you find the right pills....
It never has to. Look into it.
r41 she's better looking than Mandy Rogers aka PDR now. PDR is really plastic looking and is aging faster than AH.
Almost a unibrow on FG.
Ellen just isn't stable. If she's not changing partners, she's changing houses. If she stays too long in one house, then the girlfriend goes. If the girlfriend stays, she needs to be packed and ready to move to their new house over and over.
Over the weekend, I read that Ellen and Portia bought a big estate in Mendocino. Hey, doesn't Oprah have a big spread there?
Alexandra Hedison, I believe, is the daughter of David Hedison, who starred in the 1960s television series, "Journey to the Bottom of the Sea."
Is Alexandra the gf who found out she and ellen were over when she saw her stuff packed outside of the house they shared?
Re 46 Obviously, you're not from California. Montecito, is really just the hills, the nicest area , of Santa Barbara. Mendecino is a small coastal town, in northern, Ca.
Talk to me of Mendocino.
Since, we're talking about looks, ladies... (and btw, since when do lesbo's get all catty about women's appearances?) but I digress....
Okay ((((whispering loudly)))) I hate to say this... but i went to the Ellen show last year....and saw her up close.... and.... she kind of... sort of... needs a little... um... er...well a little "nip and tuck". A "freshening up", as they say. I feel horrible saying it (no i don't) but if she wants to keep portia she better stop rehabbing houses, and start rehabbing that exhausted mug of hers!!! YIKES!
What for R50? Everyone thinks Portia's with Ellen for the money and the publicity. If she wanted someone good-looking, Ellen should not have been her first (or 2nd, or 3rd, etc.) option.
I don't know how long Portia and Ellen have been together, but P may be going for that magic year 10 when financially everything changes. When I read about and saw photos of their new home in Montecito, I thought, "hmmm Portia is showing signs of restlessness. By purchasing the metropolis sized ranch Ellen is killing two birds with one stone. She is reminding P of what an amazing life they have together and frankly a girl can't do much better, and Ellen is giving Portia a "project" which should keep her busy for at least a year.
I may be in the minority, but I just don't find Portia anywhere near as hot as she is purported to be. I think she is developing "crone face".
Everyone keeps talking about P's money grab... But do you people not realize that P is loaded???? She's not in it for any cash. She's been on multiple hit shows since the early 90's and is still a "working actor". She's got her own money. And a prenup was def on the table before they got hitched. Their reps make sure of it. Rich people know what they're doing.
Prob led to the last slut getting dumped by ellen. Hot but poor = opportunist.
Ellen probably has ten times as much money as Portia does. I think Portia only has a few bit parts these days.
Nice try R53. Portia may be steadily working, but she has never been the star of any of those shows. She's been part of the ensemble.
Whatever money she may have, it's not even a fraction of Ellen cash.
Not when they hooked up 10 years ago [r54].
They prob had equal net worth. In fact, I bet portia was worth more.
The ellen show was just starting. it wasn't the hit it is now. It was after it's success that ellen could afford to start flipping mansions and estates. Again, they're both financially set for life-- with or without each other.
[quote]They prob had equal net worth. In fact, I bet portia was worth more.
Uh NO. By 2004 Ellen had already starred in two of her own shows, one of which ran for four seasons on a big network show and done voice work for Nemo, starred in one movie and been on the air with her talk show for a year.
The only thing of note Portia had done at the time was as part of the ensemble on Alley McBeal.
It's fine if you don't think P is a gold digger, but please don't just make stuff up.
P definitely got a career boost by being with E. She's on that Better Off Ted show as well as Arrested Development. Ellen's always been megabux.
AH comes from a wealthy family so she wasn't after E's moolah.
Montecito, near Santa Barbara. Not Mendocino, near the CA/OR border.
UHHHH NO! [r57]. Hey dumbass, google it yourself. Portia had been a working actress for 10 years!!! and Ellen's resume was equivalent, in 2003. You don't have to be a genius to see this!
And ellen's sitcom was a ratings disaster. That's why they cancelled it. Duh? Ally Mcbeal was in top 10 and emmy winner. Duh? And Nemo hadn't come out yet! Duh? So fuck off!
Ellen's celebrity worth - $105m
Annual salary - $45m
P's celebrity worth - $20m
End of thread. Yes she's a gold digger and if her worth is only $20m now imagine what it was when she hooked up with E?
Anybody else think Ellen eyes are kind of serial killerish?
NOT 10 YEARS AGO WHEN THEY HOOKED UP!!!
why are you so stupid? learn to read.
You know what's hilarious. Your stupid ass thinks that someone with 20 million dollars is a gold-digger. Go back to the trailer park you crawled out of.
I've noticed a Portia troll lately. "she's a gold digger" "She's ugly". LOL.
Oldtime redtags would be interesting and enlightening.
Portia worth $20million? LOL!!!!!!!!!!!
I find it hard to believe Portia is worth $20m as well. Maybe some of that money is from property investing/Ellen.
[quote]I've noticed a Portia troll lately.
It's been around for years actually. It's that sad idiot who keeps on referring to Portia as "Mandy Rodgers", as if calling her with her real name is somewhat a pejorative or an attack. Completely bizarre. I suppose it's the only thing that sad no-life could think of to bash her.
The on-going, long-lasting jealousy of those Ellen fangirls is disturbing.
Why did she become 'Portia' and not remain 'Mandy'?
Apparently another girl had the same name at some pageant/contest when she was young so she came up with a fake on that sounded elegant.
Reading Wikipedia re: Portia; outside of the Ally McBeal stuff she really was not that famous till she hooked up with Francesca, then after AMB ended she hooked up with the much wealthier ED.
I don't think her career would have been on the map this much without ED, plus I don't think she was that rich from AMB.
I've always thought that "Portia di Rossi" sounded like a name ripped off of a cheap bottle of wine.
According to IMDB she changed her name to Portia " at 15, she changed her name to Portia, saying that it was the most daring thing she had ever done up until that point. "
Hence that's why it sounds like a cheap bottle of wine r73 & I agree with you.
Portia's very beautiful and rich in her own right. why would she gold-dig? she had everything anyway.
Tammy Lynn Michaels is on twitter selling paintings. She's getting $23k a month from Melissa btw.
Ah, well Melissa Etheridge is another story, right?
Terrible role model for gay people.
I don't care for Ellen much, but only because she sold out and is a pickled adult baby now.
But she was once very funny and fresh and damn cute.
I am a dude.
I doubt that Portia is a gold-digger - who in the fuck thinks of such regressive ideas? I think she may be a bit fragile and like most of us wants love and stability. Not sure she found it though....
[quote]I doubt that Portia is a gold-digger - who in the fuck thinks of such regressive ideas?
It's not regressive when she dumped her wealthy but not *as* wealthy gf for Ellen in a split second. That's what that is all about, that's the reason for the Golddigger comments.
Who cares if she is a golddigger? That would mean she was attracted to Ellen for her money, and Ellen was attracted to her for her beauty. Not saying that's the case. But it seems like a reasonable exchange of superficial values.
could someone please find and post that Gregorini nude pic. I WANNA SEE IT
Judging from those steamy side alley photos, Portia and FG's sex life must have been hot, Hot, HOT!
r79 I agree but they could have broken up with their previous people before they started their shit? I don't think their relationship will last too much longer anyhow.
AH spent time in a resort (REHAB) in New Mexico a few years ago. Does anybody know what the backstory is on this? She is super hot but I think Ellen broke up with her cuz they are both butch women and it looks like AH was forced into being the girl haha. I don't know anything about her but it's a fact she was in a N.M. rehab. Anyone? Anyone?
Ellen loves eating Portia's pussy and sucking on her perky tits. Ain't no way she's leaving dat.
r82 not sure why and what about AH, but I do know she was blindsided by ED's affair and treatment of her. ED evicted her within a week of meeting P.
And on DL everyone said that ED is a mean drunk so....
[quote]Not Mendocino, near the CA/OR border.
Not even close to the Oregon border... Mendocino is wine country and North of Sonoma/Napa.... it would take around 6 hours to get to Oregon from there.
I bet Ellen can be a humorless cunt when it comes to her getting juicy, tender vagina on her tongue. Lesbo bitch.
But P isn't so juicy anymore. Good Lord did anyone see her face PRE the recent facelift from hell? And I like P a lot and I think it's fine to be aging, but I think she got it to please ED, and to continue to be the ingenue in the relationship, not the older crone which is what she was looking like. Again, that is fine and I like it, just a choice she made.
[quote]Alexandra Hedison, I believe, is the daughter of David Hedison, who starred in the 1960s television series, "Journey to the Bottom of the Sea."
I remember that show, I believe it was called, "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea". David Hedison was quite attractive.
(R84) maybe that's how she ended up in the rehab. I wasn't sure if she had a substance abuse problem...this was about 4 years ago so i don't know if it was post ED breakup.
(87) did you notice ED's neck lately? She had some work done cuz when she was on American Idol, her wrinkled turkey neck was showing up something awful and soon after she was done and back on the Ellen Show full time, all of a sudden her neck looked smoother. I didn't know P had a facelift. any pix of before and after?
Jesus I thought the Matt Bomer's ass threads showed that gay men are simple minded slobbering idiots.
But you lesbians are just as cheap. Ha.
God bless you.
[quote]I've always thought that "Portia di Rossi" sounded like a name ripped off of a cheap bottle of wine.
Fuck right off
Portia di Rossi Asti Spumante
now in a new bottle!
Alex H. or Anne H.
Very confusing, kids.
Oh, please. Y'all would golddig if the opportunity ever presented itself. Bitch whores!
Get off the board, Mandy!
Tell us more about Melissa, R77! Agreed on Ellen AND Portia.
Damn, she already looks quite middle aged in that pic, R98 and that was what mid-90s? Heavy crow's feet and forehead and neck creases. I guess she's had a lot of work done.
Portia has a little Cocaine problem lately.
She has abused coke in the past but quit for many years, now she's back on it.
She's having a few issues with her family over it.
The constant house flipping is driving her crazy and can't wait to be back in Melb filming her upcoming movie, 'Now Add Honey'.
I don't know much about Ellen, all I know is she likes to drink....
Any news on Portia?
Geez are there any Arrested Development fans here? Portia started on that in 2003, and got with Ellen in 2004. Arrested Development is what's kept her career going. It's a hugely acclaimed and loved show.
I'm a straight guy. I thought ellen and anne made a sexier couple. 3 way anyone?
flagged the perv at 103
Is it normal to cry yourself to sleep every night while ignoring the sharpened talons thrusting into your vagina?
Yes, sadly it is R105.
I am a gay guy but my impression has always been that lesbian women are not as looks/youth driven in their relationships as men. You see a lot of "looks discordant" lesbian couples. One where one partner is much older and/or markedly less attractive (in terms of conventional perceptions of female beauty). Often you will see a lovely lipstick lesbian hooked up with a large butch dyke.
So frankly all this, "X is younger and prettier...No Y is the hotter one...Maybe ten years ago..." is all beside the point. It is an emotional thing.
Who is Alexandra Hedison dating nowadays?
I heard someone say Guinevere Turner, but I thought Guin was dating Tracy Chapman?
Incidentally, back in the day I heard rumours that Guin Turner and Portia were an item for a hot minute, pre-Ellen obviously.
Just goes to show that the lesbian community can be as incestuous as they say.
[quote]Who is Alexandra Hedison dating nowadays?
Jodie Foster. Talking about incestuous Hollywood circles...
I'd love to see a chart of hollywood lesbians/bisexuals and who they've dated.
They are still Happily married despite rumors of Divorce.. I trust no tabloids, but once they put things on WIKIPEDIA, you can pretty much call it confirmed. if a fan changes the wikipage and it turns untrue, it will be changed back within the hours of posting. so as of 2008, Portia and Ellen are still married, and it says nothing of divorce, neither does Ellen or Portia confirm the divorce as of 2014 it is still untrue. However, the common folks and idiots that believe and spread rumors of the tabloids, are FAMOUSLY known for BREAKING celebreties up..... so, I blame society for the pressure some celebreties are under, even if they love their jobs, not all fans are that great... most fans infact are HORRIBLE, and MEAN.... and should not be alowed to call themselves fans, If you're a fan, you respect and love, and support, you don't judge and demand. that's not fan, that's being spoiled or starstruck, and when you're struck you don't think straight.
Oh dear ... R15, you win the xenophobe award on this thread. Congratulations.
As someone said above, they may not last, but they've had a great ride and are doing a whole lot better than some of you sad cases. Ellen would probably irritate the hell out of me if I watched her every day, but I only catch her show once a year. Her heart seems to be in the right place and you can't hope for much better than that.
[R42] ....are you David Spade?
And I should care because____________?
Does anyone have any insider info on this pair?
Everyone I know who renews their vows gets divorced.
If the tabloids say it long enough, these things will eventually come true, Just Sayin
[R117] so we should expect an announcement from Matt Damon any moment......
She can accompany me back to the home world. We are safe from the "Ellen" there.
Agree with R77. Ellen annoys as an "adult baby," though I suspect both women are immature in their ways. And that Portia is not getting the understanding she needs--or any of us need in relationships--I think is accurate.
At the end of Portia's book, "Unbearable Lightness," she quotes Ellen as commenting to her about her presumably past eating disorder/mental issues, "but you're not crazy anymore, right?" That stuck in my mind as being telling about Ellen's maturity level. ...Only an immature soul who has never dealt with any kind of psychological issues herself would be so clueless. God forbid Ellen has to grow up and deal with deeper issues in a mature way.
I think she didn't understand Anne H's psyche much, either; dismissing her has "crazy," as conveniently as the tabloids did.
These are her partners, for crying out loud.
I remember her crying on her show years ago...over a dog. A dog. That's as much compassion and depth of understanding as Ellen is capable of.
I have some insider knowledge, it's pretty juicy, but here goes....
I have it on good authority that Ellen is the butch one in all of her relationships.
She's what classified as a 'top,' and I think those for you in the know understand what that's all about...
thought that at some point the butches want another butch to be the dominant one.
Question: would a woman want to take on that role forever?
Wouldn't even a butch woman want to be the submissive one, just once in a while?
Yes, R124. If we're talking sex, I definitely like to be on top...about 85% of the time. I very much enjoy doing the "fucking,"...but there is a need for being on the receiving end occasionally.
...You have to find someone who can respect your need to be vulnerable...and more importantly you have to accept and respect that need in yourself.
