Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres have reportedly been leaning on pal Jennifer Aniston for help with their marital woes. It seems Aniston is helping provide some guidance for the couple ever since Jen reached out to Portia following her recent stint in rehab.
"After Portia got out of rehab, Jen reached out to her and they've been in close touch ever since. The joke among Jen's friends is that she should charge a fee for her counseling. They call her "Mama Jen" because she's a nurturer and caretaker to everyone," a source explains.
Portia and Jen have long been good friends, and Jen and Ellen are friends, too.
"Jennifer has listened for hours as Portia poured out her heart over the issues she and Ellen are grappling with, including fighting over whether to have a baby and how to deal with Ellen's jealousy," the source continued.
Sometimes a good friend can help a couple realize exactly how important they are to one another. Jennifer Aniston is known for being a caring person--one who puts aside her celebrity persona for those she calls her friends.

Of course one has to take a lot of what is said about Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres with a grain of salt. A book that will soon be released by celebrity journalist Randy Jernigan is reportedly filled with lies. Ellen and Portia are fairly quiet people when it comes to their relationship and their home life. It's hard to tell these days what is fact versus what might be fiction.
The Jennifer Aniston story definitely doesn't sound out of character for the actress, however, so she has likely been helping out both Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres. Hopefully with both of them leaning on Jen for added support they will work out whatever problems have troubled them recently.
