Portia de Rossi: My Ex-Husband Stole My Brother’s Wife
Before Portia de Rossi was happily married to Ellen DeGeneres, she was married to a man — Mel Metcalfe. And then, he was married to her brother’s wife.
De Rossi opens up about the family drama in her new memoir, ‘Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain.’ Having both lost their marriages — de Rossi was married to Metcalfe between 1996 and 1999 — de Rossi details what went down (via RadarOnline), and how she and her brother dealt.
“When my husband left me, my brother moved in to my place… My husband ran off with his wife, so we kept each other company and we liked to go out for margaritas and Mexican food to commiserate,” she writes in the book.
