Ellen degeneres portia rossi start dating
I've never really talked about it, and, I want to be respectful to all the players, and, to be honest, I've definitely made my peace—Portia and I are friends, I'm friends with Ellen.""Everything turned out as it was meant to," Gregorini added, "but it definitely, at the time, it was a very harrowing experience, because heartbreak is harrowing.Any breakup is just awful, but then to be dragged through the press, while it's happening, in real time, it's definitely not a picnic. I definitely went down for the count, for a couple months there, but, it definitely gave me a resolve to pick myself up, and make something of myself, and my life..."We were meant to be together for that point in time, and, and then not, and I think she's found a great partner for her.So there's that." Then they saw each other again at a photo shoot in early 2005, and "she took my breath away," de Rossi recalled.So when they reunited at the Big in '04 Awards, that was that., reporting in 2004 that Gregorini was devastated by the sudden breakup, said that de Rossi had moved right in with De Generes two weeks after the award show.) They had also recently bought a 120-acre ranch, de Rossi being an avid horseback rider. She had been in a relationship with photographer Alexandra Hedison for four years when she and de Rossi got together."We were just supposed to be together," Ellen added. I was physically getting sick because I was trying not to say anything. It was really hard to uproot everything."Gregorini admitted to in 2014 that her breakup with de Rossi was "pretty harrowing.I justified it in so many ways," de Rossi told in the summer of 2005."Believe me, I had a very, very long and difficult struggle with my sexuality."She revealed that just days beforehand she had come out to the last person on her list, her 98 1/2-year-old grandmother in her native Australia, who initially thought she said "Alan," not "Ellen." magazine, so she was fully aware of how much of a conversation just living one's truth could start."She was so courageous and so loud in '97, and now she is doing something that is more subliminal," de Rossi said admiringly.They've shared smiley moments on the red carpet, romantic vacations abroad, and sweet selfies.
"It was like a lover, it was like somebody who never ever left me.Like a thought that would always keep me excited, interested and focused.It's adrenaline."De Rossi said she made the decision to take control over her life, and coming out helped her do just that."For me being honest about who I was, coming out, being gay, starting to day, that was a huge turning point for me, because I realized without changing my life, there was no point in changing the way that I ate."De Generes and de Rossi tied the knot in 2008, after meeting backstage at an awards show in 2004.I think they're really well matched."Back in the earliest days of their relationship, De Generes, who's 15 years older than de Rossi, took a "never say never" approach to the two of them having kids.Instead, they've devote their lives to their various rescue pets (both are dedicated animal lovers; de Rossi went vegan around 2007), and shooting her talk show obviously takes up a hefty amount of Ellen's time. "It challenges you every day." Now a 29-time Daytime Emmy winner, Ellen is, to many, right up there with Oprah Winfreyin terms of no-last-name-needed pop culture titans.
