Ellen DeGeneres, the highest rated talk show host in USA, is suffering from a tad bit of marital strife. According to a new National Enquirer report, Ellen’s TV star wife, Portia de Rossi, is fed-up with Ellen’s massive popularity, fame, and success. An insider reveals, “Sadly, Ellen and Portia’s relationship is quickly becoming just another typical Hollywood cliché. The more success and wealth they accumulate, the deeper the wedge between them.”
Ellen, who makes about $45 million per year from her extremely popular talk show, has been “obsessed” with using her wealth to fill the void in her and Portia’s marriage by buying real-estate property. Slap us silly and call us Steve Jones, but how could that rescue any relationship? The ever lingering source reveals, “Ellen is grasping at straws in her desperate attempt to keep Portia happy by amassing all of that wealth, but it’s becoming blatantly obvious that it’s forcing them further apart. At this point, the only thing that’s going to save Ellen and Portia’s relationship is to find a way to make Ellen’s success secondary to what really matters – their love for each other.”
Allegedly, in Ellen’s attempt at romantic reconciliation, she paid $12 million for Brad Pitt’s former Malibu home, selling it in August for a one million dollar profit. She also paid $18 million for a colossal mansion in Beverly Hills after selling her own Beverly Hills home to American Idol host Ryan Seacrest.
We’re not sure if we’re becoming paranoid and delusional, but please explain to us how this buying of real estate property has any relation to their relationship? We doubt Ellen buys real estate and says to herself, “Hmm, an 8 500 square-foot mansion will save my relationship! What a good deal! Marble and love!”
Sorry, National Enquirer, but we’re calling shenanigans on this one.
