How refreshing to get a bit of good news out of the DeGeneres-de Rossi camp!
Ellen DeGeneres bragged on wife Portia de Rossi‘s upcoming extended arc on the ABC smash hit, Scandal.
The Arrested Development star is joining the series' upcoming fourth season for multiple episodes, TVLine has confirmed.
News of the casting was announced Wednesday on Twitter by DeGeneres and was quickly followed by a tweet from the Scandal writers room account with their own excited welcome.
No details about the character have been revealed, but DeGeneres described the arc as "top secret" in her tweet. Wonder what that means for the gladiators?
This truly does come as good news after weeks of speculation that the couple's marriage was on the rocks. Despite rampant rumors of everything from infidelity, to taped drunken fights, to ultimatums, to stints in rehab, to you name it, the couple continue to survive the media frenzy surrounding them.
So annoying when people brag on twitter & that's why I'm not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on "Scandal". Oops.

Like any couple, there will always be difficult times, but it is refreshing to see the couple celebrate de Rossi's achievements.
”They’ve worked out difficulties in the past, and no doubt they’re trying to work out any problems right now,” said a source close to the couple.
