Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi don't mind divorce rumors

Most celebrities loathe tabloid attention, but Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi embrace it, to a degree — because it means their same-sex marriage is viewed as normal.

“The divorce rumors came and then we really knew the perceptions had changed,” the actress, 45, told Us Weekly on Wednesday. “I’m not kidding. I know it sounds ridiculous, but when that started happening I thought, ‘Oh, now we’re finally accepted.’ We get the same s--- as every celebrity couple.”

“I thought, ‘Wow, this is great that I’m pregnant, not pregnant, divorced, not divorced,’ whatever,” she continued. “That means there is an acceptance for this.”

The “Arrested Development” star and DeGeneres tied the knot in 2008 and have been going strong ever since.

Still, despite not minding being the subject of the occasional tall tale, it doesn’t mean the ladies are thrilled with gossip culture as a whole, especially since so much of what they read is inaccurate.
