Ellen DeGeneres: Portia's New Haircut Is 'Adorable'

Her new hairdo earned mixed reviews from readers, but Portia de Rossi’s latest cut has one very important fan: wife Ellen DeGeneres.

“It’s adorable,” she tells Bethenny Frankel in an episode of bethenny airing Tuesday. “She loves it. Everybody loves it. She really, really wanted to do it for a long time.”

DeGeneres says that because de Rossi grew up modeling, she always kept her hair long. “Everyone told her never to cut her hair,” she explains. “I think [long hair] just got to be part of her.”

So when de Rossi decided to take the plunge, “Everybody was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to regret it,'” DeGeneres recalls. “[But] it’s adorable and I love it.”

Though de Rossi is excited about her new look, she wasn’t so excited about its debut. “She was so upset we got paparazzi the other day,” DeGeneres says. “She was like, ‘Couldn’t it have been at an event when [my hair] was done and everything?'”

However, she’ll be able to show off another new detail soon: a wrist tattoo. “It’s a brand of her horse … a Hanoverian,” DeGeneres explains, before adding jokingly, “Not my name, it’s her horse.” Hear more from DeGeneres below.

I love both Ellen and Portia and think they are a great and happy couple. I always loved Portia’s long hair BUT it does look very cute. She looks good with both I think. I just wish I could see her without her glasses on .. it hides her face.

@shauna, I don’t understand your comment ‘not all of us have to get their hair done everyday’. Whaaa! What in the world is that supposed to mean?

Ellen looks horrified in this photo. Portia looks cute!

The haircut is horrible and looks way too ‘butch’, if you know what I mean.

Great haircut

The haircut looks great on Portia- very hip and attractive! Some of the comments on this post are just plain rude and immature. Why?

She looks like Ellen Barkin…
