    I totally agree with you 3 or 4 years is not what I would consider a long term commitment....I agree too that the A.D.D. is her strength and her weakness...I worked for someone with A..D.D and I can't think of any project that he stuck with for longer than about 3 years...very creative...inventive...energentic...restless...mad e lots of money, but very hard to work for... Her serial monogamist comment was good insight on her part and no kids is a really a good decision for them.

    You never know. Sometimes you meet someone and your days of looking for "something else", or patterns of being scared and self-sabotaging behaviour just end. Happened with a friend of mine: she had 3 relationships, each of 4 years, then met her current partner and hasn't looked back since (they've been together for 8 years...). I don't think monogamy is necessarily written in our genetic make-up as humans (this, coming from someone who has been in the same fabulous relationship for 4 years!), but there seems to be some strong evidence for it. Whether or not this is it for E&P, may they live hapily ever after either together or as the sexy, strong, deliciously smart women that they are

    Exactly. Time will tell...

    One of my favourite jokes from her HBO specials is the ADD one; 'I know I have ADD because I don't have the patience to go and get tested to find out if I have ADD'. But hasn't she said somewhere more seriously that she thinks she has ADD? I can't remember...

    Looking at Ellen's track record, I don't necessarily think E&P are gonna make it, but that's what Ellen says too, and she knows she's said it before, so only time will tell. If they do make it, then good for them!

    Well, to come to Ellen's defense on this one, the break-up between Ellen and Anne wasn't Ellen's fault...she didn't break up that relationship, as far as we know! If Anne hadn't turned out to be crazy and left Ellen, who knows, they might have still been together today! But I think everything happens for a reason...and Portia was brought into her life for a reason!

    I don't think it's even about Anne being crazy... like Ellen, she's also a "serial monogamist" (I really like that phrase)... who has a similar 3-4 year commitment limit. Her issue seems to be that she can't tell the difference between who she is and the character she's playing.
    I mean, she got a role as a woman who moves to Alaska, buys a cabin and falls for the local hunk... so she moved to Vancouver, bought a cabin and left her family for the local hunk...
    she doesn't know who she is.... and I'm pretty sure that annoyed the crap out of Ellen (because Ellen likes strong women)... and probably contributed as much to their breakup as Celestia (which I read somewhere Anne told Ellen about within a month of their hookup - but I don't believe everything I read).
    What I really wonder is... how different would Ellen's life look if she could get married? Would her relationships have lasted longer or would she constantly have to divide her wealth?

    hmmm...who cares? She's happy right now and that's all that matters! In her personal life that is...I don't know about the rest of it right now!

    There's a picture of Teresa Boyd in the book by Ellen Tracy.

    I was recently going through the video I took of Betty during my Olivia cruise in October. During the Q&A portion, someone in the audience asked Betty if Ellen had ever dated anyone that she didn't approve of. Betty laughed and said, "No, not really," and then quickly stated, "Well, at the time it seemed okay..." and I'm sure she was referring to Anne. Then, she brought up the name of a girlfriend that I have never heard of before - Lisa Phillips. She said that Ellen was with Lisa either before Anne or after her, but, she said that Lisa and Ellen are still very good friends and that Lisa's partner works on TEDS. I have no idea who this person might be but I thought that was interesting.

    Has anyone ever heard about Lisa?
