Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi (Norman Scott/startraksphoto.com)Even Ellen DeGeneres couldn't laugh it off when she saw photo of herself on the cover of a celebrity magazine with the headline "Ellen and Portia Marriage Crumbles."
The funny girl addressed the story during her opening monologue on Wednesday's episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," but there was a serious message between the jokes: Her marriage is great and the tabloid is lying.
She explained that when she first saw the headline, it took a moment to process.
"It caught my eye because Portia and I were in the top right hand corner. And I thought, 'Oh that's so sweet, they're honoring us,'" she mused. "But then I read the headline underneath. And it said: 'Ellen and Portia Marriage Crumbles.' And I was like, 'Oh, what happened? They seemed so happy.' And then I was like, 'Wait, I'm Ellen.' And I should know if that was happening."
And while she debated whether to read it or not, she admitted that she caved and opened the magazine — to find that the page with her story had been ripped out!Read More »from Ellen DeGeneres Throws Humor on Breakup Rumors
