Comedianne and talk show host Ellen Degeneres is terrified she may lose partner of a year Portia De Rossi. According to the National Enquirer, the funny woman is worried that Portia will leave her for a guy the same way Anne Heche did, sources say: "Ellen's so in love with Portia I think she's afraid to be too happy."
"She's been burned before," a source told the Enquirer. "Now she's afraid it's destined to happen again because Portia's just so beautiful, and guys naturally come on to her all the time."
Oddly, friends say that Ellen fears Portia is being influenced by their straight male friends, including actor Jeremy Piven, who had a role on Ellen's first sitcom and now stars on HBO's Entourage. "He's been friends with Ellen for years," said a source. "So Jeremy and his pals drop by Ellen and Portia's place for card games and drinks."
"Ellen's probably the funniest woman alive and people just naturally gravitate to her. And then she has this smoking-hot girlfriend — who's also a blast to hang out with. And when their straight guy friends start kidding around about 'switching sides' and 'joining their team,' Ellen knows it's all about Portia and not her.
"She can put up with the joking for just so long."
