Portia de rossi dating ellen
Of course, years later, Portia would finally come out and eventually start dating De Generes.And now she's no longer afraid to flaunt her love for Ellen.I didn't want to walk past pizza restaurants because that would make me remember what it was like to eat pizza, and I was truly afraid that I was going to be overcome with the urge to binge, and if I started binging then I just wouldn't stop."What's more, Portia admits she was so scared to come out publicly that at one point, she turned down a date with her current partner, Ellen De Generes.Portia didn't want anyone to know she was a lesbian and Ellen had recently come out on her TV show and was openly gay., the 37-year-old gay actress, who's now married to Ellen De Generes, reveals how years spent struggling with her sexuality tore her apart.Portia, who for awhile, denied the fact that she was a lesbian and even stayed in a marriage to a man for 3 years, says that trying to hide her true self led to an eating disorder that nearly killed her.You may recall that de Rossi weighed just 90 pounds during her years, though her eating disorder may have not stood out next to the other strikingly thin women on the show like Calista Flockhart (who got a lot of flack for her lithe frame) and Courtney Thorne-Smith (who admitted that she felt intense pressure to be thin while working on the show)."It took a long, long time for me to think I had a problem," Portia told ."I was around 90 pounds and I remember feeling very afraid of food every night...
It was a ridiculous thought for me to be closeted and terrified of being discovered, and then date the most famous lesbian in the world. I had such a long way to go before I could even be seen in public with a woman, much less be seen in public with that one," Portia said.The duo started dating in 2004 and tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at their LA home in 2008.
