Portia de Rossi --

Officially Portia DeGeneres

9/23/2010 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Portia de Rossi is no more ... at least in the name department ... because she's now officially known as Portia Lee James DeGeneres.

Portia DeGeneres name change.
TMZ has learned a judge granted Portia's name change petition today in L.A. County Superior Court. She and Ellen DeGeneres got married in 2008.

We know "Lee" was Portia's original middle name, but "James" seems to be an added name. Hey, if you're already filing the paperwork ... why not?

why the hell is this crap considered news? just because they are lezbos does NOT make them heroes or anything special. it is long overdue to stop celebrating homos. if they really want to be accepted as regular people (fine by me) then this little event is not worthy of even being mentioned.

Did you purposely find the worst picture of Portia I've ever seen?

Saddened by all the haters. 'Cause what's to hate? They make people laugh (Ellen, obviously, and Portia on the best sit com EVER, Arrested Development), and do good things for animals.

I wish them all the best, and look forward to when all loving couples are free to wed.

As it is written, we were once both man and woman in one body.

Thus the lord split the sexes.

In order to regain that balance of the one perfect being, we must bring together the man and woman the brute and the love, the caring and the sacrifice. the two will join back together to create the balance again. Two women souls or two man souls cannot join to create a spiritual balance. Maybe they feel balanced in this evil world, but they will not be spiritually.
