Ellen & Portia’s Fourth Wedding Anniversary
Every year to celebrate their wedding anniversary, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have a party with a few guests. This past summer they decided to have the biggest party so for. They invited 300 people. Ellen said she wasn’t thinking and that is 300 hellos and 300 goodbyes that you have to give.
This year they invited kids and it was a mess. Ten minutes in and they had a toilet overflow. They called Roto Rooter and they spent hours snaking out the toilet. They pulled out a cocktail napkin, a paper towel and a child’s practice bracelet flushed down the toilet.

They thought she said “shut the f’ up” and Ellen showed it again and Pink did say “shut the front door.” Some people need to pay attention a little bit closer before they go writing in to complain about shows.
