DeGeneres, Rossi to get counseling to save marriage

Los Angeles, March 10 (IANS) Popular TV host Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are reportedly heading for a counselor to save their marriage.

The couple is trying hard to get things back on track, reports

"Ellen has been in counseling, both solo and with Portia. Part of their therapy is to go on more date nights. That's why they've been seen out and about more together lately," a source told Life & Style magazine. 

"It's all about spending quality time together, but still giving each other space during the workday. Ellen and Portia had been fighting more than ever. Portia was frustrated because she was spending a lot of time on Ellen's talk show set or sitting at home, waiting for Ellen to spend time with her," the source added.

Things reportedly would often get so heated that the crew of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" would overhear their arguments. 

"Ellen hates that. She never wants people at work to know about her personal problems. It was a huge wake-up call for her," said the source.
