POR­TIA PUSH­ING ELLEN TO QUIT

Globe - - BREAKING NEWS -

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.”
