Portia de Rossi: Taking Ellen DeGeneres' Last Name!

Portia de Rossi is taking wife Ellen DeGeneres‘ last name!

The 37-year-old actress filed a petition in L.A. County Superior Court last week asking to legally change her name to Portia Lee James DeGeneres.

According to TMZ, Portia‘s paperwork notes that the reason for the petition is that she’d like to take her spouse’s name.

Portia and Ellen tied the knot back in August of 2008.

I just can’t believe that Ellen is 52 years old!
Some people age SO good…
I am also very impressed with Kristen Bell and Gabrielle Union!

# 3

I think Ellen looks 52 especially in the neck. Not that it’s a bad thing.

# 4

Rosie Fat-O admitted she “married” Kelly Carpenter to make a political point, same here, nothing but politics!

# 7

Ellen has had some cosmetic procedures done in the past.

# 8

I wish I had the balls to change my name without everyone around me thinking I was a lunatic. Portia was born Mandy Rogers, now this….Congrats to them though, they are a great couple.

ywa ellen looks 52 in the neck…on idol her neck looged like those rooster necks

if this were a hetrosexual couple you would not be so assine as to suggest that they were getting married for polictical reasons. they love each other, you idiot. please grow a brain.

Yawn. It’s not like Portia’s using the old name anyway. Other than being Ellen’s gwife, her career’s kind of at a standstill. (Is she in the Arrested Development movie?)

@to missy:

its two women, what are they gonna do, have children!

being ***** isn’t cool, its unnatural, as in against nature

I love my dog, I’m not gonna start barking

ewwwww VOMIT A LOT!!

@missy: You homophobic fcuking piece of *****!!!!!!!!!!!! GO READ A BOOK YOU IGNORANT!


here i thought there were aliens each with two heads, four arms, and four legs. of course they are two women. hate to break this to you as obviously you have no knowledge of reproductive technology. but portia is more than capable of having a child. don’t need a man in the house for that one. ever hear of A.I.?? (or do you need to spell out the words). as for this being unnatural, not cool who died and elected you god??

now, no need to upset poor missy by telling her that this is a gay man’s site. don’t want her crying in her soup do we??

@to missy:

is that how you got your kids, with a turkey baste?. and NO you can’t have a kid without a MAN, no matter your BS.

Gross.Changing names is stupid anyway,regardless of the sexes of the people involved.

that makes no sense. they’re both chicks.

How would you choose whose name to take? Just whichever one felt right? Sounded better?


whoever has the most MONEY, honey!
