Portia de Rossi came into this world as Amanda Lee Rogers. Then for some reason, she decided to change her name to Portia de Rossi. I think she totally used the Soap Opera Name Generator to come up with Portia de Rossi. Although, according to this version of the S.O. Name Generator, her soap opera name is Viv Forrester. My soap opera name is Sebastian Forrester. Wait. Portia and I are both Forresters. Does that mean we’re related? Does this also mean I can claim a piece of the DeGeneres fortune?! “Pack up tha Chevy, Pa! We is movin’ ta Bevahly Hills!!”
Anyway, the point is Portia is changing her name again! Star Magazine reports that she is legally changing her name to Porta DeGeneres. At least she kept the “De.” That’s important. If she drops the “De” in her last name, she’s nothing!
A source told Star that Portia and Ellen ordered stationary with “Mrs. and Mrs. DeGeneres” printed on it. The source went on to say: “Ellen and Portia used it to write thank-you notes to the 19 friends and family who attended.”
Why wouldn’t Ellen take Portia’s name? It’s much more glamarous sounding. It sounds like the bottle name of a delicious sparking wine. Ellen de Rossi. Yeah, I like that much better. But Ellen is obviously buying the milk in that house, so Portia DeGeneres it is!
