“Portia is threatened by Ellen’s relationship with Drew,” a source told exclusively. “Their emotional bond is obvious, and Portia is feeling completely left out.”

Drew’s newly single status (the actress divorced from her third husband a year ago) as well as her admission to being bisexual have both raised De Rossi’s suspicions, the insider claimed.

In an interview with Contact magazine, Drew revealed, “Do I like women sexually? Yes, I do. Totally. I think a woman and a woman together are beautiful, just as a man and a woman together are beautiful.”

Plus, Portia fears her serious side can’t compete with Drew’s quirky humor, which meshes well with Ellen’s.

“Ellen and Drew have the same goofy sense of humor, and they laugh like idiots at each other’s jokes,” the source told Radar. “Portia is a lot more serious, and it’s like those two have some unspoken language that she’s not part of.”

Portia’s insecurities regarding Drew come on the heels of rumors that the couple’s eight-year marriage is on the rocks. “They spend less and less time together,” an insider claimed.
