Anne Heche tried to warn Portia de Rossi not to date Ellen DeGeneres, she revealed in a resurfaced episode of her podcast.
The ‘Six Days Seven Nights’ star, who died last Friday after sustaining serious injuries when she rammed her car into a house, told her co-host that de Rossi thought dating the former talk show host -show would make her a “poster kid” for a gay relationship.
“I warned Portia,” she said on the June 2021 episode of “Better Together.” “Portia even asked me about Ellen before she came to my wedding, and Portia even said, ‘I’m going to pick on Ellen.'”
Heche, 53, said he told the ‘Arrested Development’ star the relationship wouldn’t help him achieve fame.
“You won’t be the poster child, girl,” Heche recalls telling de Rossi, “because guess what, that poster child has already been taken; and by the way, it wasn’t a great place.
“But yours won’t be any easier. And I’m telling you now, like, red flag, red flag, red flag! »
Heche then shaded de Rossi, with whom she appeared in “Ally McBeal,” as a woman comparable to a luxury car.
“I realized Ellen drove a Porsche…then she married one,” Heche said. “All she did was drive Porsches and she collected them, and I just thought that was so dumb because they were so loud.”
The ‘Volcano’ star dated DeGeneres, 64, from 1997 to 2000. She later told Page Six that their relationship “cancelled” her in Hollywood.
“I haven’t done a studio shot for 10 years,” she said. “I got kicked out of a $10 million photography deal and didn’t see the light of day in a studio shot.”
Meanwhile, the “Finding Nemo” actress and de Rossi just celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary.
