Portia de Rossi is, allegedly, giving Anne Heche an ultimatum to stay away from her wife, Ellen DeGeneres.
According to National Enquirer, Portia de Rossi was enraged when she heard Heche say that she wants to reunite with DeGeneres. But what Heche said in an episode of Dancing With the Stars was she would love to guest in Ellen Show.

Still, a source for the tabloid insisted that this comment didn’t sit well with de Rossi. After all, the Scandal star, allegedly, believes that Heche is just using DeGeneres to drum up publicity for herself.
“But Portia’s indicated any dreams of any kind of reunion will remain a fantasy as long as she’s around,” the source said.

The insider also claimed that de Rossi was the one that stood by DeGeneres’ side during the recent blows to her character and career.
“Portia has proven she is committed to Ellen – despite all the hits to her image. Anne may dream of a reunion and think she has a chance given Ellen’s recent vulnerable state. But it will never happen as long as Portia has breath in her body,” the source said.
The Ally McBeal star has also, allegedly, been reminding DeGeneres that she’s the one that’s stood by her through it all. And as of late, they’re on the same page that Heche is ancient history.
However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. After all, this is just another attempt of the tabloid to create drama where there is none.
Heche’s statements about her past relationship with DeGeneres didn’t suggest that she wants to get back together with the comedian. Since they haven’t spoken to each other in years, Heche thought that it would be nice to keep in touch.
It is also important to note that Heche is already married. So, it’s unlikely for her to ruin her relationship because of an old flame. And it’s even more unlikely for her to try and ruin DeGeneres and de Rossi’s marriage.
DeGeneres and Heche dated for a few years before calling it quits in 2000. Following their breakup, DeGeneres dated Alexandra Hedison, but they split in 2004.
Shortly after, DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi started dating each other. And in 2008, the couple decided to tie the knot.
