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 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 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?

I thought Portia looked beautiful with her own hair in AD. She was hardly in show I wonder why...

by Anonymousreply 1006/11/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 1206/11/2013

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.

They should just have a discreet agreement to have women on the side and keep the relationship for PR purposes.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 7806/12/2013

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 12507/27/2014

What really creeps me out is Ellen's moulding ability: just check out Anne's, Alex's, and Portia's short hair. And whenever Ellen is out with her gf, they are seen posing in the same way: fingers interlocked, Ellen looks like a pimp. Also, apart from Anne and Alex share the same initials, their curly short hairdo are quite alike. I'm sure Ellen has this very narcissistic/emotional development arrested tendency that somehow attracts others in psychologically damaging way. I'm always on the Anne-and-Alex team. Never liked Ellen but she picked fine girlfriends.

(It also seems that Jodie is tomboy-yet-the-girl in the relationship...and Alex turns into this no-eyebrow-tweaking-I-don't-give-a-fuck full on dyke à la k.d. Lang style. That shocks me a little.)
