Ellen DeGeneres gives up alcohol
Ellen DeGeneres is reportedly giving up alcohol.
The chat show host has decided to ditch the booze in a bid to help her wife Portia de Rossi stay sober following her alleged stint in rehab in May for substance abuse.
A source told US OK! magazine: "Ellen has always been a big drinker.
"She loves her wine but she's realized her behavior has only enabled Portia to drink as well, and she feels partially responsible for Portia's rehab stint."
Ellen, 56, who married the actress in 2008, is determined to do anything to make sure Portia, 41, remains healthy following the successful 30-day stint at Passages Malibu rehab facility.
The source explained: "Ellen loves Portia more than anything in the world and wants to make sure she's healthy, emotionally and physically. She's realized that drinking in front of Portia is just selfish. Right now their marriage is better than it's been in years, and Ellen is just grateful that her wife is healthy again. She's ready to enjoy every minute that she has with Portia."
Meanwhile, this wasn't the first time Portia has been admitted to a rehabilitation center as she also sought treatment for an eating disorder in 2000 after her weight reportedly plunged to just 82lbs.
