Ellen and Portia won’t be doing babies

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi won’t be starting a family anytime soon, the talk-show host says in her new book, “Seriously ... I’m Kidding.” “People are constantly asking Portia and me if we are going to have children. We thought about it. We love to be around children after they’ve been fed and bathed. But we ultimately decided that we don’t want children of our own. There is far too much glass in our house,” DeGeneres jokes, before going on to explain the the couple have a veritable menagerie of pets at their L.A. home and on their farm.

Madonna’s homeless bro

Madonna’s second oldest brother, Anthony Ciccone, is homeless and living under a bridge in Traverse City, Mich., he tells local news site The Michigan Messenger. “My family turned their back on me, basically, when I was having a hard time,” the 55-year-old says. “You think I haven’t answered this kind of question a bazillion times — why my sister is a multi-bazillionaire and I’m homeless on the street? Never say never. This could happen to anybody.” Ciccone says his troubles started when he lost his job at his father’s Suttons Bay winery more than a year ago.
