Following eight years of strong marriage, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have come to a stormy relationship, although a recent report claims that the couple is making the best effort to put the pieces back together. DeGeneres and de Rossi’s marriage has come a long way, and the partners are addressing recent difficulties through counseling and therapy.

In a news report by Life & Style, an insider revealed how the couple is going back on track and keeping their relationship intact. “Ellen has been in counseling, both solo and with Portia,” the source shared about Ellen DeGeneres and Porta de Rossi's marriage. “Part of their therapy is to go on more date nights."

For fans and critics questioning Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s marriage, the couple was spotted together as they held hands at a pre-Oscars party in Los Angeles in late February. They were also seen with each other while they shopped along Melrose Avenue. “It’s all about spending quality time together, but still giving each other space during the workday,” the insider added.

For some time, the TV show host’s relationship with the “Scandal” actress was surrounded with controversies, include those relating to hectic schedules. According to the insider, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s marriage reached a point when the Australian star had been spending much time at the “Ellen” show or at home, waiting for the comedienne to spend time with her.

Eventually, outbursts had reportedly gotten frequent that crew members at the studio overheard the couple’s disagreements. According to the insider, Ellen DeGeneres refused to publicize her personal problems and never wanted her co-workers to know about the issues in her marriage with Portia de Rossi. “It was a huge wake-up call for her,” the source noted.

In an interview with People Magazine in October, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s marriage became a topic that was strongly defended by the talk show host herself. According to DeGeneres, she found her best friend in this relationship, with whom she wanted to spend more time than anybody in the world. "Portia and I constantly say to each other, ‘We are so lucky.' Sometimes it's lying in bed at night before I go to sleep, and I just say, 'Thank you to whatever, whoever is out there,’” she added.
