Ellen DeGeneres wants the world to know that despite reports to the contrary, she's "happily married" to Portia de Rossi.
The talk show host addressed rumors about their five-year marriage during a hilarious monologue on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, that began with a trip to the hair salon.
"The other day I'm at the hair salon getting these extensions," DeGeneres joked. "And there's tabloids all over the hair salon – that's where they are, I guess. All of a sudden I notice one sitting on the counter in front of me [and] it caught my eye because Portia and I were in the top right-hand corner and I thought, 'Oh, that's sweet, they're honoring us.' "

Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi are both vegan, but that doesn't stop them from enjoying a Thanksgiving feast.
"It doesn't make [Thanksgiving] harder at all. It makes it easier on the turkeys, too. They get to live," DeGeneres, 55, told PEOPLE at the Duracell Power a Smile and Toys for Tots event on Nov. 22.
So what does The Ellen DeGeneres Show host fill her plate with?
"Yams, green beans, stuffing ... any kind of vegetables. Stuff like that," she said.

Ellen DeGeneres is so happy she could dance.
"It's a supremely wonderful day for equality," the talk show host Tweeted on Wednesday. "Prop 8 is over, and so is DOMA. Congratulations everyone. And I mean everyone."
The Supreme Court earlier handed a major victory for gay rights in two decisions. It cleared the way for the resumption of same-sex marriage in California by letting stand earlier court declarations that Proposition 8 was unconstitutional, and struck down the Defense of Marriage Act provision denying federal benefits to married gay couples.

Arrested Development, one of the cleverest sitcoms of all time, returned to life over the weekend, as Netflix launched an entire season of 15 new episodes for instant and, if one so chooses, marathon streaming.
This is a cause for celebration: reviving a cult network classic as digital, 24/7 programming is something like cloning a fresh mastodon from genetic material tweezered off a frozen carcass.
There is no guarantee, however, that the genetic material may not have mutated or deteriorated with time.
That is the case with Arrested Development, which lasted a mere three seasons on Fox despite ecstatic praise and is now regarded as such a classic that this revival has been wildly anticipated (and hyped).

A little too friendly?
That was the scene for Jennifer Aniston when she sought some impromptu hosting advice from her former Friends costar Matthew Perry in a funny new skit to promote her Wednesday gig as co-host of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
In the clip (watch it below), Aniston knocks Perry's door to get some tips from her former castmate, who also has co-hosted the show.
"We haven't actually seen each other in like a really long time, 8 years. ... You really should have called," said a nervous Perry, who looked on sheepishly as their mutual pal and former costar Courteney Cox emerges from his house after an obvious sleepover.

After turning 40 in January, Portia de Rossi says she's ready to embark on the next stage of her life.
"The trick for me turning 40 was to really evaluate what I wanna do with this next phase in my life," she explains on the set of her photo shoot for PEOPLE's Most Beautiful issue, on newsstands Friday.
While she may still be figuring out what's next, the Arrested Development actress knows what she won't be doing.
"The one thing I don't wanna do is chase what I looked like at 20," she says.

If you thought Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's Beverly Hills home was impressive, have a look at their weekend place.
The couple's 26-acre ranch in Hidden Valley, Calif., north of Los Angeles, is the epitome of rustic elegance, pairing DeGeneres's notorious love of art and design with de Rossi's passion for horseback riding.
The property, featured in the May issue of Elle Decor out April 16, had fallen into disrepair. But in the four years since they bought it, DeGeneres and de Rossi have transformed it into a stunning showcase of art and design.

Though the day may be far off, Ellen DeGeneres can see herself and wife Portia de Rossi moving far away – to de Rossi's birthplace, Australia.
"I shouldn't put it out there," DeGeneres, 55, told a crowd in Melbourne, "but I can see us living here one day," reports Australia's News Limited.
"I've wanted to come to Australia for a long, long time, before meeting Portia," the talk-show host also said.

Do you think the koala knew who it was talking to?
During some downtime from her talk show, Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi jetted to Sydney, Australia, for a little R&R, and paid a visit to the city's Taronga Zoo.
While touring Friday, DeGeneres made nice with a koala sitting among some branches, flashing it her signature grin as de Rossi looked on.
