Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi are currently engaged in an entertaining social media war that involves secretly filming each other and sharing the footage online (it’s not as dirty as it sounds).
As the Inquistir previously reported, their video war started when Jane Fonda appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The actress/fitness guru gave Ellen one of her workout DVDs to watch at home before their interview, but Portia was the one who ended up actually trying a few of Fonda’s moves. A naughty DeGeneres secretly recorded de Rossi testing out the DVD, and she shared the covert booty-shaking footage with her TV audience.
Jane Fonda will be thrilled to learn that Portia de Rossi has become a big fan of her retro exercise routines. According to People, Ellen DeGeneres recently caught her wife sweating it out with a spandex-clad Jane again. And of course, she recorded Portia’s arm-heavy workout and posted the footage on her Twitter page.

De Rossi let DeGeneres’ sneaky filming slide the first time around, but she wasn’t too happy about being humiliated twice. On Saturday, she warned her wifey that payback was on its way.
To get her sweet revenge, de Rossi secretly recorded DeGeneres’ workout. As you can see, Ellen’s exercise routine is slightly more embarrassing because it involves breathless singing and half-dancing. In case you’re wondering, Ellen is trying to make her workout harder by singing Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” while she pounds the rubber.

Unfortunately for Portia de Rossi, she’s married to a comedian, so of course Ellen DeGeneres just had to get the last laugh. Ellen responded to Portia’s revenge video by revealing the very revealing way her wife prefers to do Pilates.

That’s definitely one big advantage of deciding not to have kids. However, Portia might alter her workout wardrobe now that she knows how sneaky Ellen can be with that camera phone.
Celeb Dirty Laundry claims that DeGeneres and de Rossi are experiencing relationship troubles, and that Ellen has threatened Portia with divorce, but the couple seems to be pretty healthy and happy in the videos above — they just have a delightfully wacky way of sharing their love.
