Ellen DeGeneres & Portia de Rossi Face Off Against Melissa McCarthy & Ben Falcone

By Jason Marshall


The couple that laughs together, stays together...even if they don't know one another all that well.

That's a lesson Melissa McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone learned the hard way when they stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show recently.

Ellen and her wife, Portia de Rossi, faced off against the Bridesmaids stars in a game appropriately called "The Not-So Newlywed Game."

Melissa and Ben have been married for 10 years, where Portia and Ellen have 7 years under their belts. Hysterically, those combined 17 years did not guarantee right answers when asked who their spouse has a crush on or what their best traits are. 

Watch the video below to see which couple comes out victorious:

In addition to knowing each other slightly more than Melissa and Ben do, Portia and Ellen clearly have a better memory book as well.

The Arrested Development star took to Ellen's interview chairs for the sole purpose of being embarassed with some very candid photos from a few bad hair days. 

Thank god for Portia's ability to have a laugh at her own expense. 

Check out the full interview (and hopefully more shenanigans) when the full episode airs later today.
