Anne Heche tried to discourage Portia de Rossi from dating Ellen DeGeneres. Heche made the revelation in a resurfaced episode of her podcast.
The “Six Days, Seven Nights” star, died at age 53 last Friday, August 12th. She sustained severe injuries when she plowed her car into a house.
Heche explained to her co-host, Heather Duffy, that de Rossi thought dating the former talk show host would make her a “poster child” for a gay relationship.
“I warned Portia,” she said in a June 2021 episode of “Better Together.” “Portia even asked me about Ellen before she came to my wedding [to Coleman Laffoon], and Portia even said, ‘I’m gonna go after Ellen.’”
Heche said she told the “Arrested Development” star that the relationship would not help her gain fame.

“‘You won’t be the poster child, girl,’” Heche recalled telling de Rossi, “‘because guess what? That poster child has already been taken, and by the way, it wasn’t a great spot.
“‘But yours ain’t gonna be any easier. And I’m telling you now, like, red flag, red flag, red flag!’”
Heche went on to shade de Rossi, with whom she appeared on “Ally McBeal,” as a woman comparable to a luxury car.
“I realized that Ellen drove a Porsche and then she married one,” Heche said. “All she used to do was drive Porsches and she collected them, and I just thought it was so stupid because they were so loud.”
The “Volcano” star dated DeGeneres, 64, from 1997 to 2000. She later told Page Six that their relationship “canceled” her in Hollywood.
Meanwhile, the “Finding Nemo” voice actress and de Rossi, 49, just celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary.
