Portia de Rossi changing her name to DeGeneres




We could write about how Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva are havig their case transferred to a district attorney in two weeks, but we'd rather share good celebrity relationship news. It seems Ellen DeGeneres will soon have a Mrs. DeGeneres waiting for her at home every single night.

TMZ says Portia de Rossi, who has perhaps the coolest name of all unattainable women, has filed a petition in L.A. County Superior Court to change her name to Portia Lee James DeGeneres. The petition filed says the reason is because "petitioner is taking the last name of her spouse."

These two have been married since August 2008, so we've got to wonder why it's been two whole years. Maybe Portia was waiting to see if that American Idol thing was going to work out first.
