Did You Know That Portia De Rossi's Ex-Husband Ran Off With Her Brother's Wife?

If you didn't, then you obviously haven't read her memoir Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain. Having read the book ourselves MONTHS ago, we knew all about it, but it seems to be new information for some of you.

So, allow us to review.

Yes, Portia de Rossi was married before she ended up with Ellen DeGeneres, to a man named Mel Metcalfe. He's a documentary filmmaker and the pair were together for three years during the late nineties. But then, as Portia writes in her book, Mel left her and all hell broke loose in her family:

“When my husband left me, my brother moved in to my place… My husband ran off with his wife, so we kept each other company and we liked to go out for margaritas and Mexican food to commiserate…The fact that Renee would wear skimpy, lacy underwear clearly visible underneath her oversized, gaping overalls should have indicated to my brother and me that a personal partnership was also forming, but when Mel left me and Renee suddenly sabotaged her marriage to my brother to be with Mel, Brother and I were left idiotically scratching our heads in disbelief.”

Now that's what we call a family affair! Such scandal!

But even though the past is getting dredged up by the book, we think she's totally moved past the whole thing. That was over a decade ago and now she has Ellen and a happy life. What more could a girl ask for?

Hopefully, the same can be said of her poor brother!

    Why I'm not surprised that she was with a man before Ellen.

    "What more could a girl ask for?"
    -
    A real cock instead of a strap-on?

    Oi cue the mass theories of 'she was scarred by a man and is now with a woman and she only thinks she's a lesbain because blah blah.." Can of worms. Open.

    Re: Size2Kay – There's supposedly 2 million people who are gay and married. She considers herself GAY not bi, and I knnow PLENTY of GAY men that have been with and dated women but adamently insist on being considered gay. It's the side you feel most comfortable with and that which dominates. I've heard she's a lesbian whereas the weirdo Anne Heche was a total jumper and had always been straight before Ellen.

    so many cons i can't keep up; i had a converation with my father and brother in a row and here are the good tidings, my father doesn't know are there death camps in the u.s.a., i told my brother he was conned by islam businessmen in the sevenites. on the upside he lone beauty luke has ineffable good taste and a passionate obfuscation, i want him to live as much as any rebelious younger sibling. the denial of accuracy is as sad as i have ever been dealt, i will call him gay now though, gay sadist; whatever helps

    It cracks me up to see how many men are so threatened by lesbianism. You only have a dick and yet think it's so amazing and god's gift to everyone but as far as penetration goes, it's replacable boys. 80% of women have the best orgasms from the clit and not vaginal penetration which is why so many lesbians are very sexually satisfied. Just read "She cums first" and maybe you'll learn how to make women cum like women know how to do. BTW, how many women comment like this on gay men that were married before? Most every gay man in the public eye has either been with women before or married before. Like I said, 2 million people are gay and married right now. You just keep spewing your insecurities guys and there will keep being hot women that are GAY.
