Portia de Rossi Slams IVF Rumors

Portia de Rossi wants to set the record straight on the story circulating that she is undergoing in vitro fertilization to get pregnant.

Portia is busy with shooting her brand new comedy on ABC Better Off Ted, and spoke with Access Hollywood about the rumors.

Portia came right out and said, “There’s a story around right now about me that could not be further from the truth.”

When asked if she was referring to the IVF story, Portia replied, “Yes, that was completely made up.”

But she didn’t seem to annoyed by the rumor, saying that its not the first time she’s heard it. Portia says, “The baby thing comes around annually. I find… once a year, you know, whether I deny it or not… It doesn’t make any difference.”

So with no babies her future, Portia is just focused on work. Her new comedy begins March 18th. And she’ll also be making her first appearance on the Ellen Degeneres show.

Believe it or not, she’s never been a guest on the show! Portia says she’s a little nervous about going on, because she doesn’t know what Ellen is going to ask her. We’re sure she’ll be fine. And in the end, so does Portia. She says, “I think she’ll go pretty easy on me.”

Don’t forget to watch Portia, who’s not pregnant, on the new ABC show Better Off Ted beginning March 18th.
