Ellen Addresses The Portia De Rossi Breakup Rumors In The Best Way Possible

Ellen DeGeneres clears up divorce rumors on her show December 2013Have I said lately how obsessed I am with Ellen DeGeneres? Oh I said it just yesterday? Well that’s fine, but it’s not nearly recent enough, so I’m going to say it again — this lady is the best.

Apparently she doesn’t normally read tabloids, but she was in the hair salon the other day and she saw one lying around that had her and Portia De Rossi‘s photo on the cover. It was in the upper right corner of the magazine and it had the caption ‘Marriage Crumbles’. (The first clue that it was fake should’ve been the fact that they couldn’t even find a photo of the two of them in which they weren’t beaming ear to ear, but whatever.)

But since she also doesn’t Google herself or get sucked into the vicious cycle that is reading gossip about yourself in the media, Ellen had no idea what kinds of stories were out there about her marriage. So instead of just ignoring or issuing a standard denial through a publicist like most other celebrities would do, Ellen addressed it head on, which I have a ton of respect for. She brought it up in her opening monologue and talked about it with the perfect mix of humor and sincerity, in just the way we’ve come to expect from her.

“It’s so ridiculous to me. There’s not one ounce of truth to any of it. I’m very happily married. In fact, the only thing we ever argue about is who loves who more. That is all. It really is true. And we argue if we’d let a kangaroo carry us around in its pouch for a year. I would. She wouldn’t. She’ll change her mind. Who wouldn’t want to be in the pouch of a kangaroo for a year? Hopping around. And she’s like “no” but anyway.”

Honestly I could totally see having the same argument with my own boyfriend, and regardless it’s so. adorable. But then Ellen gets a little more serious, and as always, she nails it:

“What I do know is I come out here everyday I tell you what’s going on in my life. And if there’s anything you need to know, I’ll announce it here first. And this is what you need to know right now – it’s time for us to dance.”

Yes, girl. YES. She’s the best.

    Haha you are so right! That picture is a picture of 2 super happy people, no bad feelings there. And Ellen and Portia can’t break up because then I would have no perfect celeb couples left.

      Not a single one.

    She wouldn’t last a year in a kangaroo pouch! There’s no room for dancing!
