Model/Actress Portia de Rossi has sat down with Oprah to have an honest talk about her past. Nothing seems off limits and in the trailer (shown below), you will see that de Rossi (who is actually now Degeneres) breaks down in tears.Photo by: Quasar/starmaxinc.com 2010 7/22/10 Portia De Rossi and Ellen Degeneres at the launch of a new bridal jewelry collection with Kay Jewelers.

Portia de Rossi is married to talk show host Ellen Degeneres and is relatively quiet when it comes to her personal life. Her interview with Oprah (which airs today) is really the first time that we’ve seen de Rossi open up about her past and her present.

Perhaps the most shocking information that de Rossi reveals was her struggle with anorexia. “It wasn’t that I was proud of it. But it was certainly a recognition for my self-control. I definitely had some pretty amazing willpower to get down to 82 pounds. And that’s what I was holding onto. I didn’t think about anything else” she tells Oprah (via PopEater).

In what seems like it will be a very moving episode, de Rossi really puts herself out there for the world to see. Everyone just seems to like her because (almost) everyone likes Ellen. This is really the first time that we see Portia de Rossi standing (well, sitting) on her own and giving a candid interview.

De Rossi will likely gain respect for her willingness to be open about her struggles and we’re sure that everyone will gain a fondness for her.
