Ellen DeGeneres has always been in the news for one reason or the other. The American host has always been vocal about her sexuality and her relationship with Portia de Rossi has set an example for the LGBTQ+ community.
Ellen has not been unknown to controversies. She was also in talks for not paying her employees and having a hostile environment at the set of ‘The Ellen Show’.
Her relationship with Portia de Rossi has also been in the limelight all the time. There were talks about the couple thinking of starting a family together but there was also news of them having problems in paradise.
Ellen and Portia are renowned flippers in the US. They are known for buying beautiful properties, renovating and decorating them stunningly, and then selling them to high-profile clients like Ariana Grande.
But recently the couple gave a sneak peek into their home. Let’s find all about their relationship and more.
Ellen & Portia Opted For Counseling
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi married in 2008. It made quite the headlines as gay marriage was not legal back then in many parts of the USA. However, Ellen DeGeneres has stood up for gay rights and has influenced the community and the country more than anyone else in Hollywood. Her marriage with Portia is one of the longest-running marriages in Hollywood in today’s time but that does not mean they did not face any obstacles.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi opted for marriage counseling to save their marriage. It was in 2017 when things were not going smoothly for Ellen. Her professional life was handling some major turbulence and her image was getting all the negative publicity.
As a result, Ellen DeGeneres, unwillingly and unintentionally, was venting out all of her frustration on Portia. There came a time when Ellen became extremely insecure.
Her insecurity with Portia became a major problem in their relationship. Ellen became completely intolerant of any third person getting close to her wife – man or a woman.
But on the other hand, when Ellen used to get cozy (even for fun) with her celebrity friends, it would cause stress to Portia. The jealousy became so overpowering that the couple started living separately and started considering getting divorced.
Then was the time when a friend suggested them to take help and opt for counseling. Portia was reluctant at first as she did not want to involve any third party into the picture. But, with the growing tension, the couple ultimately opted for therapy.
Ellen took solo as well well as couple therapy after spending many date nights together, the relationship got back to normal. They even talked about having kids together but decided against it. According to them, they like kids but not so much to have them all the time!
