Apparently, before she was Ellen Degeneres‘ wife, Portia de Rossi was married to a man…until her husband ran off with her sister-in-law. Married to filmmaker Mel Metcalfe in 1996, de Rossi was stunned three years later when Metcalfe left her for brother Michael’s wife Renee Kappos. “When Mel left me and Renee suddenly sabotaged her marriage to my brother to be with Mel, Brother and I were left idiotically scratching our heads in disbelief,” de Rossi reveals. Despite the unexpected affair, however, Portia already knew that her days as a straight woman were nearing an end. “By the end of our first year together, despite my desire to be attracted to him, my latent fear of my real sexuality was simmering and about to boil,” Portia now admits. Seems like some blessings come in disguise, or by the name of Mel Metcalfe.
Portia opens up about her divorce, eating disorder and more in her new memoir Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain. Despite what some have suggested, Australian-born Portia did not marry her hubbie to stay in the U.S., explaining “I actually married him, for a green card. But I didn’t get my green card through him—I couldn’t do it at the end.” Luckily there’s no lingering bad blood between Portia and her ex, so we guess it worked out for the best for everyone in the end. Oh, wait, except for Portia’s brother. Oh yikes…
One day soon every gay and lesbian celebrity is going to be able to freely date whoever they want, and man, are we going to blog about their love lives then! Until that time, however, we have to worry about horrible things like Chely Wright receiving death threats for being a lesbian. The country singer-song writer announced her sexual orientation of People last May after much nail-biting across America about which famous person was about to come bursting out of the closet. Since then, however, Wright tells the lesbian news site Autostraddle, “My life has been threatened. I get nasty letters every day, ‘I’m through with you Chely Wright, you’re going to hell,'” she reveals. How do people have the time on their hands to write hate-mail to random country singers? Does being crazy add a few extra hours to your day?
Not only does Wright, also starring in a new documentary about her life titled Wish Me Away, have to throw a lot of her mail directly into the shredder, she is also feeling the financial repercussions of being honest about her sexuality. “It’s a big stretch from those new [gay] fans to make up for the fans I lost. It didn’t help my career. My record sales went directly in half,” Chely admits. Considering that Wright has written tunes for Brad Paisley, Indigo Girls and Clay Walker, that is probably no small chunk of change to lose. Still, Wright is confident that she made the right choice. “In coming out I had a feeling that it would diminish my wage earning, and that feeling was correct. And, I am fine with that,” Chely explains. Good luck to Wright, and here’s hoping her haters pick up crocheting or scrapbooking. Anything to keep their hands away from the stamp drawer.
They were just one Paris Hilton short of a Bimbo Summit, which was the last time tabloid darlings Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan had been photographed together.

Traumatic divorce or no traumatic divorce, Katie Price has a business empire to run, and so in order to plug her latest ghostwritten novel Sapphire (no laughing at the back, please), she’s on the publicity trail again. Hang on, when is she not on the publicity trail? Anyhow, she told Metro her future love life could feature a bit of 2009’s trendy fad for fake bisexuality.
“No one could ever bet or imagine who I’ll be going out with next. I don’t even know myself. Who knows? It could be a woman,” she said.
That’s one thing you haven’t tried yet, Katie, and it’s sure to fascinate the tabloids! Another thing she hasn’t tried yet is acting, but that’s not going to stop her. “I’m also going back to L.A. to do an audition for Sex And The City 2,” she added. Dear god, no. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Lindsay Lohan‘s antics play out daily in the media, and now the troubled redhead is being spoofed in a new porno, “Hustler’s Untrue Hollywood Stories: Lindsay Lohan.” The flick shows Lindsay, played by Scarlett Fay, pulling all kinds of stunts, from pushing Scarlett Johannson in a pool to fighting and making up with lover Samantha Ronson to hooking up with porn legend Ron Jeremy.
The FABlife spoke to Scarlett about what it was like to play Hollywood’s most troubled “Firecrotch.” “I thought it would be a lot of fun,” Scarlett tells The FABlife. “She’s all over the media and Dylan Ryan played Samantha. She fits Sam to a tee.”
Of course a porn spoof featuring Lindsay and Sam would feature some hot girl on girl action, and Scarlett says that her lesbian scenes with Dylan went off just perfectly. “That was a lot of fun. It was perfect chemistry wise. We were laughing the entire time, and it all came together.”
Although Lindsay’s dad Michael recently told the New York Post he thinks the spoof is “disgusting,” Scarlett seems to think Lindsay wouldn’t be so mad about it. “I don’t really picture Lindsay being crazy upset about it. She is in tabloids all the time. She and I may even get along!” Scarlett laughs.
Check out the video segment above from “Hustler’s Untrue Hollywood Stories: Lindsay Lohan,” which comes out next Tuesday, July 28th.
Although the status of their tumultuous on-off relationship changes by the day, Lindsay Lohanand Samantha Ronson appeared to be very much “on” Monday night when the pair had a romantic dinner date at Beverly Hills restaurant Matsuhisa.
Lindsay and Sam arrived at 9:50pm and chose a table right in the middle of the restaurant. While Lindsay, dressed in a white minidress, went to the ladies room, Samantha talked with the restaurant manager and ordered up some special dishes for her lady. Samantha also discussed a recent travel gig with the female manager. When asked about Lindsay, Sam said, “We’re really good.”
After Lindsay returned to the table, the couple seemed relaxed and happy during their dinner. “They shared everything, laughed throughout dinner, and joked with each other. They really looked like a happy couple,” a source tells The FABlife.

Who doesn’t have a girl crush on Megan Fox? Bootylicious Kim Kardashian is the latest celebrity to admit that the Transformers star gets her heart racing.
“Megan Fox is so hot. She is like my girl crush and I don’t have girl crushes,” Kim said at the Transformers premiere.
Screenwriter Diablo Cody also recently admitted Megan has that little extra something. “She is irresistible; she’s a femme fatale,” Diablo said. “We don’t have a lot of those these days. We have a lot of very safe little actresses. She has a sexy quality and she’s smart and she’s cool and I admire her a lot.” [Photo: Getty Images]
Brooke Hogan is always up for trying new things, and one of them is dating chicks. In a new interview with OK!, Brooke dished on her romantic date with a female.
“The girl was really awesome and we had a blast,” Brooke says. “Then it got to the point where she was wanting to kiss me. Everyone knows I do not go there.”
Although Brooke says she “naturally migrates towards men,” she is open minded and feels you can “fall in love with anyone.”
One relationship she doesn’t dig, however, is her mom’s romance with 19-year-old Charlie Hill. “What people don’t know is that he’s a bad influence on her. He’s 19, he can party his ass off. She’s 48.” [Source: FoxNews.com; Photo: WireImage]
