ELLEN DeGeneres isn’t happy with wife Portia de Rossi.
The talk show titan is furious about the actress’ shocking comments about coming to grips with her sexuality.
“I just didn’t want to be a lesbian,” the 40-year-old said. “I’d never met one for a start, and I thought they were strange, they hated men and were very serious.
“I had these ridiculous images in my head, and there were no ‘out’ celebrities or politicians or anybody I could look to and go, ‘Oh, I could be like that.’ There was nobody that I could say, ‘I could date her and I want to be like her.’ I just kind of thought I don’t want to live like this.”
Ellen, sources say, is enraged by Portia’s candid talk.
“It’s added more tension to their already troubled marriage,” disclosed a friend. “Ellen’s a champion of gay rights and doesn’t like Portia saying, in essence, that being gay is ‘strange.’”
Ellen — who announced she was a lesbian in 1997 — was also upset by Portia claiming that no other celebrities were “out” during the time she was wrestling with her sexuality.
“That really stung, because Ellen came out before Portia had even landed her spot on Ally McBeal in 1998,” noted the friend.
“Now Portia is walking on eggshells around Ellen.”[imagebrowser id=530]
