She said she had been flipping through a tabloid that put on its cover that her marriage was crumbling, only to find that article ripped out.
The fires were followed by killer mudslides that left 20 people dead in the Montecito area.
De Generes and de Rossi had been back in their home for 10 days when they evacuated again.
I think they're really well matched."Back in the earliest days of their relationship, De Generes, who's 15 years older than de Rossi, took a "never say never" approach to the two of them having kids.
Since, however, they've been moms to their various rescue pets (both are dedicated animal lovers and active with related charities), and shooting her talk show obviously takes up a hefty amount of Ellen's time.
But when stories that they were going through a messy split wouldn't go away, Ellen was compelled to speak out more forcefully in March 2014."The truth is, and this is corny, I fall more in love with Portia all the time. We're really lucky because we know how rare it is.", "I can't imagine not being married.
I have my best friend, the person I want to spend time with more than anybody else in the world."She and Portia remained as devoted to each other as ever, she said, and they readily put in the work that any committed relationship requires."Our priorities are each other too," De Generes said.
"She's changing the world, she really is, and it's exciting to be a part of that." She admitted to , "It's hard having a relationship that's public.

(The Australian actress says she married him for the green card, but in the end she couldn't bring herself to take advantage of their "great, caring relationship.") In fact, she was in a relationship with writer and filmmaker Francesca Gregorini when she met De Generes.
I justified it in so many ways," de Rossi told in the summer of 2005.
