Ellen DeGeneres Refutes Marriage Trouble Rumors on Talk Show

Posted on: December 12th, 2013 by ABC News No Comments

Michael Tran/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) — Ellen DeGeneres’ marriage is not crumbling, no matter what you may read in a magazine.

DeGeneres took time on her talk show Wednesday to address a report that her marriage to actress Portia de Rossi is on the rocks.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show host told her studio audience she was recently at a hair salon when she noticed a magazine that had a photo of the couple on its cover.  The accompanying headline read, “Ellen and Portia Marriage Crumbles.”

DeGeneres joked, “I was like, ‘Oh, what happened?  They seemed so happy.’  And I was like, ‘Oh wait, I’m Ellen, and I should know if that’s happening.’”

She recalled that she picked up the magazine but discovered the article in question had been ripped out.  Regardless, she said, “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.”   

DeGeneres, noting that she never reads tabloids and never Googles herself, told viewers, “If there’s anything you need to know, I’ll announce it here first.”

DeGeneres has been married to de Rossi since 2008.
