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

Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de RossiAKM-GSI

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.

It is an adorable hair-do on her!

I like Ellen and Portia both. Portia is a pretty lady and her hair cut does look adorable.

I don’t understand why this lady Bethany has her own talk show, but I adore Ellen. She seems like the nicest person and easy to get along with.

I’m sorry. The haircut looks a mess. Did she cut it herself?

Rolyat on

The usual transition from women to man is when the hair gets shorter and shorter.

I LOVE both Ellen and Portia. Wish them the best always.

i think it’s cute, as for the comment did she do it herself, not all of us have to get their hair done everyday, and as for the comment about transition from women to man, well your just an ass. The only one that should like it is Portia, and she does, Ellen doesn’t even have to like it, it’s just a bonus lol

Portia is a beautiful woman and her haircut looks great. I predict “The Portia” will be the big next haircut fad, like “The Rachel” was back in the day.

As a horsewoman, I totally understand the Hanovarian tattoo…

Are you kidding,the short hair looks horrible – yuck!

Well Rolyat that is a ridiculous statement… basically you are saying EVERY woman with short hair just wants to be a man or is one step closer to being a man? I always think that I have heard it all when I read comments that people leave but amazingly I continue to be surprised by the level of absurdity in many of the comments.
If it were not for the anonymity of these boards I hazard a guess that there would be a great deal less absurd statements.
