Portia de Rossi Says When Ellen DeGeneres Divorce Rumors Started She Felt 'Accepted'

Portia de Rossi happily poses alongside her wife Ellen DeGeneres while attending the General Public x RH Celebration held at Restoration Hardware on Wednesday (June 27) in Los Angeles.

The happy couple were joined at the event by Chrissy Teigen and her hubby John Legend, January Jones, Kris Jenner and her boyfriend Corey Gamble, and Nate Berkus and his husband Jeremiah Brent.

At the event, Portia opened up about how she thinks that people’s perceptions of same-sex marriage changed for the better when she tied the knot with Ellen back in 2008.

“The divorce rumors came and then we really knew the perceptions had changed,” Portia, 45, told Us Weekly. “I’m not kidding. I know it sounds ridiculous, but when that started happening I thought, ‘Oh, now we’re finally accepted.’ We get the same s–t as every celebrity couple.”

“I thought, ‘Wow, this is great that I’m pregnant, not pregnant, divorced, not divorced, whatever,” Portia added. “That means there is an acceptance for this.”
