Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi are dealing with a lot of marital issues and divorce rumors but that’s nothing compared to what they’ll face when this tell-all book about Ellen comes out. A celebrity journalist, Randy Jernigan, is currently writing a tell-all named The Life And Career of Ellen DeGeneres, and it will reportedly reveal many ‘sordid details‘ about Ellen’s and Portia’s marriage.
Considering that Ellen and Portia are still dealing with the fall-out from Portia’s rehab visit, I can’t imagine that it will get much better once this book comes out. Randy reveals that the couple had a very ‘tumultuous’ start to their romance, and that most of their relationship issues stem from Portia’s ‘self-loathing’. Note that Portia allegedly recorded Ellen’s fights with her because they were so ugly and this prompted Ellen to send Portia to rehab.
Randy explained [via Radar Online], “Portia loves attention because she’s secretly so insecure. She also hates that her career is in the dumps. Ellen and Portia both care for each other very much, but neither is good at the whole give and take aspect of a relationship.”
We’ve heard much of the same from the tabloid rumors, and they go in line with what Randy reveals. It also makes sense considering Portia’s anorexia and body issues, and those types of emotional scars don’t tend to wear away easily.
Ellen and Portia do clearly love each other, but is love enough for the couple to weather so many problems? Portia’s self-esteem issues, her failing career, and her abuse of drugs and alcohol – not to mention her jealousy over Ellen’s other friendships and relationships. If Portia is upset about her career, then she would no doubt be upset that her partner continues to get more and more successful by the year. While most people would be happy to see their wife get that much success, I have a feeling Portia’s feelings range from happiness to insecurity and jealousy.
What do you guys think? Will Portia and Ellen manage to weather the upcoming storm? Or will they get a divorce? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
