Tiffany treat for lover Ellen
January 27, 2005 —
SEXY starlet Portia de Rossi has given her new lady love, Ellen DeGeneres, a Tiffany wedding band as a sign of her everlasting devotion. As we were the first to report, de Rossi threw out her longtime lesbian lover, Francesca Gregorini, to move in with DeGeneres last month. As a surprise for DeGeneres’ 47th birthday on Wednesday, de Rossi, 31, gave her a beautiful platinum band from the famed Fifth Avenue jeweler. She bought a matching band for herself. Plain Tiffany platinum bands range in price from $450 to $1,200. “It signifies their commitment to each other,” a source close to the couple told PAGE SIX’s Jared Paul Stern. Since same-sex marriages aren’t legal in California, insiders say it’s doubtful the pair will hold a wedding ceremony that wouldn’t be officially recognized. As we reported last month, de Rossi has been having laser treatments to remove an “F.G.” tattoo - for Gregorini’s initials - from her ring finger. Gregorini got a similar tattoo when the pair decided to demonstrate their devotion. It will take several sessions for the ink to be erased completely. The rings aren’t the only gift de Rossi has bestowed on her new lover. She also bought DeGeneres a mint condition ’80s-vintage Porsche for Christmas. It’s identical to a model DeGeneres used to own and holds special significance for her. …DeGeneres and de Rossi appeared in public together recently when they made the rounds of the Golden Globes after-parties. Before hooking up with de Rossi, DeGeneres was involved with photographer Alexandra Hedison, who is said to be devastated by the de Rossi development.”
Just stop it! Damn she is so beautiful. She makes my knees weak.
