HALP HALP MAH HETEROSEXUAL MARRIDGE BE THREATENATED! Oh. Wait. It’s not. Never mind.
You know, usually when I read that celebrities plan to forgo the prenup, I shake my head at their naïveté and possibly double-check the headline to make sure I’m not reading about Britney Spears. But when it’s Ellen and Portia skipping the prenuptial agreement, I’m…just charmed. Women! We can be so reasonable sometimes.
Ellen shared a few details about her upcoming GLORIOUSLY LEGAL wedding to Portia de Rossi backstage at the Emmys — she bought Portia a Neil Lane ring and the date is set and it’s all just your perfectly normal, run-of-the-mill wedding planning talk. Which is precisely what makes it awesome.
Ellen, who also revealed she plans to fly Portia’s mom
in from Australia for the ceremony, was eager to talk about her
upcoming nuptials admitting that, "planning a wedding is stressful."
She also joked about the size of the guest list, joking that her many
Emmys "will be on top of the cake," and that the wedding is now so big
"my gardener is invited."
"We have incredible people singing" at the wedding, Ellen said. "It’s very exciting."
Portia proudly showed off her ring at the Daytime Emmy Awards — it’s a marquis-cut diamond surrounded by pink diamonds.
So the prenup talk is coming from the National Ledger, which…eh. Pretty notoriously unreliable. (Other gossip blogs are saying Star Magazine picked it up as well, but I can’t seem to verify who reported it first.) There could very well be a prenup. Ellen is worth about $63 million or so, but some unnamed source claims she thinks prenups are "unromantic" and the couple is confident the marriage will last. And so I recklessly reprint it here! Yay warm-and-fuzzy rumors with possibly no basis in truth!
Ellen herself told People, however: "I can’t wait to be married. I feel like it is long overdue. And I think someday people will look back on this like women not
having the right to vote and segregation and anything else that seems
ridiculous like we all don’t have the same rights."
