Do you know who Portia de Rossi is?  If you're not one of the 199 people who have seen "Arrested Development" on TV, then you're in the majority to who she's a total stranger.  Portia knows this, so she opted for a name change to be more recognizable.  She took on her wife's name--yes, we said wife--so she's now officially known as Portia Lee James DeGeneres.  Yes, THAT DeGeneres.  Portia and Ellen started dating in 2004, and they were married in 2008 when same-sex marriages were briefly legal in California.  Ellen jokingly reported this on her Twitter account yesterday, saying that Portia's name change had been granted and she's now known as Portia Winfrey.
