As Ellen DeGeneres' almost two-decade-long daytime talk show officially comes to an end, there is one person who remains her primary source of support: her wife, Australian actress Portia de Rossi.
This week, the 63-year-old announced the end of her 19-year-long career in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter saying, "When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged – and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore.
"I need something new to challenge me."

The news comes after the talk show host faced a lengthy media storm that threatened her reputation.
Mid last year, past and present employees of The Ellen DeGeneres Show claimed Ellen wasn't as 'nice' as she appears on screen.
Around that same time, the talk show became the subject of further controversy when Buzzfeed News published an investigative piece that outlined a "toxic work culture", including allegations of harassment towards staff by executive producers on the show.
