Yes, you read that right! Prior to meeting Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi was married to Mel Metcalfe. No, not just any ol’ man. After calling it quits, her ex-husband ran off with her brother’s wife! Let’s do the math again: Portia’s husband ditched their marriage to steal her brother’s wife. Whoa.

Portia told RadarOnline the details in her new memoir, Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain. “When my husband left me, my brother moved into my place…My husband ran off with his wife, so we kept each other company and we liked to go out for margaritas and Mexican food to commiserate.”

In hindsight, of course, everything is 20/20. While she didn’t specifically know what was going on at the time, in retrospective, Portia reveals some signs. “The fact that Renee would wear skimpy, lacy underwear clearly visible underneath her oversized, gaping overalls should have indicated to my brother and me that a personal partnership was also forming, but when Mel left me and Renee suddenly sabotaged her marriage to my brother to be with Mel, Brother and I were left idiotically scratching our heads in disbelief.”

All we can say is, “Whoa.”
