Is Portia de Rossi's marriage to Ellen DeGeneres in trouble? Sources say she is terribly jealous of Ellen's close friendship with Sofia Vergara. Those same sources claim that Ellen and Sofia have grown even closer lately since Sofia called off her engagement to Nick Loeb.

"Portia always resented Ellen's friendship with Sofia, and now that Sofia is leaning on Ellen for support, she's even more jealous," a source told the media. "Portia has always thought Ellen was a little too touchy-feely with Sofia. They've fought about it before, but Ellen convinced Portia she was blowing the situation out of proportion and that the women were just good friends."

Ellen DeGeneres is doing her best to let everyone know that rumors saying she and Portia de Rossi are divorcing simply aren't true. Everyone knows how the media can make a mountain out of those proverbial molehills. Might this be what's going on here, too?

"The tabloids had a photo of Portia not wearing her wedding ring. She goes, 'I didn't wear it because when I ride horses and I'm holding the reins, it gives me a blister!'" Ellen said during an interview with PEOPLE magazine for its March issue.

"The truth is, and this is corny, I fall more in love with Portia all the time. I really do. She surprises me all the time," DeGeneres said. "It's what anyone experiences when you find that person that gets you, wants to take care of you, wants the best for you. We're really lucky because we know how rare it is."

What do you suppose is the real story behind these divorce rumors? Are there problems in Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres's marriage or is this all some big elaborate scheme created at the hands of tabloid reporters?
