Portia de Rossi recently silenced all the rumors suggesting that she and Ellen DeGeneres are divorcing.
Portia de Rossi made it clear that she’s standing by her wife amid the recent criticisms surrounding DeGeneres. The Scandal star’s support for the comedian suggests that they’re united in the face of adversities.
On her Instagram account, de Rossi uploaded a photo with the words “I stand by Ellen.” At the bottom of the post is the hashtag #IStandByEllen, as well as the funny woman’s mantra on the Ellen Show: “Be kind to one another.”
Ellen DeGeneres’ ‘be kind to one another’ mantra criticized
Last month, several former employees on Ellen Show slammed DeGeneres for encouraging her viewers to be kind to one another. After all, they said that the comedian is not so kind herself.
While speaking with Daily Mail, one former Ellen Show staff criticized DeGeneres for not practicing what she’s preaching. The former employee also called the host a phony and said that her recent apology was fake.
Despite all the backlashes and criticisms that DeGeneres has received, she’s standing strong with de Rossi in her corner.
Portia de Rossi is the only celebrity supporting Ellen?
The Ally McBeal star’s vouch of support for her wife came in the heels of reports that no other celebrity other than Scooter Braun has backed DeGeneres up.
New York Post said that DeGeneres’ closest friends in the industry, namely, Jennifer Aniston and the Kardashian family have not said anything about the issue. These A-list celebrities, reportedly, think that the public will come after them next.
Portia de Rossi has not been very vocal about the issues involving DeGeneres until this week. But the actress walked her two dogs sans DeGeneres last week.
