Ellen DeGeneres is the first to admit it bugs her when people brag on Twitter.
But that didn’t stop her from revealing that her wife, Portia de Rossi, will be guest-starring in a “top secret arc” on ABC’s hit series, Scandal.
“So annoying when people brag on twitter,” she Tweeted. “& that’s why I’m not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on “Scandal”. Oops.”
According to E! Online, de Rossi’s deal is confirmed and she will shoot more than one episode during the show’s fourth season.
The announcement comes just weeks after the couple enjoyed some much-needed quality time vacationing in New York and Croatia following reports that de Rossi, 41, had spent time in a rehab center earlier this year.
While reps for the couple have not commented on the reports, friends says the pair are happy and looking forward to celebrating their sixth wedding anniversary in August. “They’ve had a few ups and downs but everyone loves them and is supportive,” says an insider. “They are a great team.”
