Ellen DeGeneres is, allegedly, playing nurse to her sickly wife, Portia de Rossi.
According to National Enquirer, Ellen DeGeneres has a lot of things that she needs to deal with. But she’s also tending to her sickly wife, de Rossi, who recently had an appendectomy.
The tabloid published a photo of de Rossi looking disheveled to prove their dubious claims that the actress has been very sickly.
“Their whole relationship has revolved around Portia doting on Ellen and not the other way around, so the change of dynamic has been a real nightmare for Ellen and it’s worn her out mentally and physically. She’s delegating as much as she can to the hired help, of course, but they’re not there 24/7 – and Ellen is no Florence Nightingale, by the way. She’s fussy and fidgety, she’s short on sleep and patience – and she complains of dizzy spells because it’s all too much for her,” the source said.
Ellen DeGeneres stressed for days
The past year has, reportedly, been very stressful for DeGeneres because she was previously accused of being a mean girl and a bully. Shortly after, several people came forward to reveal that there’s a toxic environment on the set of Ellen Show.
DeGeneres continued to host the program amid all these allegations. And she also apologized on behalf of her producers and staff. However, she just announced last week that the show’s 19th season will be its last next year.
Ellen DeGeneres quits ‘Ellen Show’
The funny woman said that her decision didn’t have anything to do with the allegations thrown at her. After all, she already knew that Season 19 will be the end while she was signing her three-year contract.
Now, the tabloid is saying that de Rossi’s health is adding more stress to DeGeneres. After all, she’s not a touchy-feely person so taking care of her wife isn’t one of her best assets.
However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt.
There is no proof that Ellen DeGeneres is struggling to take care of de Rossi. And since de Rossi was operated on weeks ago, it’s highly likely that she has already recovered.
