PORTIA PUSHING ELLEN TO QUIT
PORTIA DE ROSSI wants Ellen DeGeneres to ditch her long-running talk show because she thinks the daytime gabfest is a waste of her wife’s talent!
The comedian, who has hosted The Ellen DeGeneres Show since 2003, admits Portia is the reason she almost turned down her recent contract extension, which will keep her on the air through 2020.
“She gets mad when my brother, Vance, tells me I can’t stop,” says the 60-year-old former sitcom star who voiced the title character in the 2016 Disney cartoon Finding Dory.
“I just think she’s such a brilliant actress and standup that it doesn’t have to be this talk show for her creativity,” explains the 45-year-old Arrested Development actress, who wed Ellen in 2008. “There are other things she could tackle.”
