Portia De Rossi

Why does Portia have memory loss about her relationships pre Ellen? In the book she discusses her eating disorder pre Ellen. Has she ever talked about her exes? I ask due to the fact I'm new to paying any kind of attention to Portia and I'm nosy. Who has she dated before Ellen and why did they break up?

by Looking for old news .reply 4101/31/2013

She mentions her exes in her book.

by Looking for old news .reply 111/06/2010

Weren't most of her exes except for Francesca men? And Francesca was/is a beauty. Her mother is Barbara Bach.

No.

Oh and op this was answered in the other thread why don't you try reading it.

by Looking for old news .reply 411/06/2010

which thread, r4?

by Looking for old news .reply 511/06/2010

what did she say, r1? Did she mention Francesca?

by Looking for old news .reply 611/06/2010

I'm no expert on Portia, but I would think she doesn't bring up her exes because they have no relevance to her current/present life.

by Looking for old news .reply 711/06/2010

Also, because Ellen will tear her apart.

The other day when PDR was on Rosie's radio show, she mentioned being with Francesca and how she rarely (in public) sat with her. Francesca usually sat behind or to the side of her.

by Looking for old news .reply 911/06/2010

What else did she say about her relationship with Francesca Gregorini, r9?

by Looking for old news .reply 1011/06/2010

She's written a book about her life? I guess the guy who cuts my grass should write one as well. And certainly the nice lady at my drug store.

by Looking for old news .reply 1211/06/2010

Didn't she date one of Lionel Richie's daughters--I've forgotten her name. I remember reading about them before she was with Ellen.

Add her marriage to Mel Metcalfe. I remember when those photos came out of her and Francesca, thinking "oh another faux bisexual", because they were both women were hot and bisexual was the new black dress. Apparently the press couldn't believe she was gay and not bi either because they bought her marriage to Mel. [quote]Portia turned to women after a painful breakup nearly four years ago with her former live-in boyfriend, documentary filmmaker Mel Metcalfe, revealed a friend of the couple. But she admitted the truth years later, that she hadn't even really been bi. [quote]Portia De Rossi and Mel Metcalfe were married when she first came to Los Angeles to work. She said that they got married so that she could get a green card, but that it just "obviously wasn't right". She also dated Guinevere Turner (who hasn't) when she was closeted.

She knew that if she talked about Francesca there'd be the inevitable split-screen shot of Francesca and Ellen, side by side, and when she was it, she'd have to kill herself.

by Looking for old news .reply 1511/07/2010

i read the book. she mentions francesca at the very end (i think in the epilogue actually). says they were introduced by a mutual friend, immediately entered into a 2 year relationship. says francesca taught her how to be in a relationship, was very loving and patient with her. sounds like PDR still had eating disorder shit going on while they were together. she mentions how francesca could eat whatever she wanted and stay skinny and it made PDR crazy. also mentions the francesca's mother introduced her to the joy of riding horses in the english countryside.

i think of ellen dumps portia, portia might kill herself. she seems so completely dependent on her.

by Looking for old news .reply 1611/07/2010

Did she write about this in the book? lol

by Looking for old news .reply 1711/07/2010

Many people are dependent on their s.o. for their happiness, unfortunately.

by Looking for old news .reply 1811/07/2010

I remember there was a BI before Portia came out about an actress who was dating a bartender. I always thought that was Portia, any mention of whether she dated a bartender. I was wondering if I was right.

by Looking for old news .reply 1911/07/2010

"think of ellen dumps portia, portia might kill herself. she seems so completely dependent on her."

Huh. That's interesting because I always thought of ellen as the emotionally needy one.

by Looking for old news .reply 2111/07/2010

I think so too. Ellen would flip out and, trust me, she will leave Ellen someday.

I think they were together 4yrs. Did Portia say 2yrs in her book?

by Looking for old news .reply 3311/07/2010

Ellen represents Cover Girl cosmetics, a company that still conducts horrible experiments on animals. She is a Hypocrite and I too believe that this is a doomed pairing. They are legally married with no pre-nup and Portia will take off some day and take the cash with her. One thing I can't stand is the foolish puppy dog pout and teary eyes Ellen puts on when she is talking about Portia. not attractive, downright stupid. Plus Ellen is old, Portia won't be there when she's 60. That's my prediction. If anyone gives a rats butt. Personally I think Portia is a bad actress, too skinny and using Ellen for money and her career. Ellen's show caters to stupid housewives and she does absolutely nothing for gay rights. She is just too full of herself, acts like a big Hollywood jerk with too much dough. . and with this Cover Girl animal testing crapola I just can't stand her anymore. She is annoying.

I don't care much about any of these people, but I am curious about so many lezbians becoming spokesmodels for ezy brezy Cover Girl. Are they going after the homosexual market, or is it just a coincidence?

by Looking for old news .reply 3701/31/2013

Whoever put up Portia's current IMDB profile picture is definitely out to get her. Yikes.

by Looking for old news .reply 3801/31/2013

I agree that Portia will eventually leave Ellen.

by Looking for old news .reply 3901/31/2013

Would we honestly care about Mandy Rogers (her real name) if she wasn't with Ellen? Is she a good actress? i honestly don't know.

by Looking for old news .reply 4001/31/2013

Is she on TV anymore?
