Well, that's one way to address rumors!
All the gossip about Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's relationship was getting out of hand, so SOMEONE had to stop all the rumors in their tracks!
And how would one stop such crazy rumors? By talking about it in the opening monologue of their first episode of their talk show's new season, DUH!
Did we mention this only works when you have your own TV show? LOLz!
Ellen elegantly mentioned the rumors before segueing into what she did over the summer, saying:
"I went on a trip with Portia, my beautiful wife. Who I am happily married to, but thanks for your heartfelt concerns, tabloids."
The comedienne's daytime show is on the cusp of returning to all of our TV screens, but for those who wouldn't wait a couple more days, here's a sneak peek for ya!
Ch-ch-check out the opening monologue for the very first episode of The Ellen Show from the 12th season (above)!!
