Awwww! ELLEN DEGENERES Finds True Love With PORTIA DE ROSSI... But We Still Miss Crazy ANNE HECHE

Taking advantage of California’s new legal status for same-sex marriages, showbiz couple Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi tied the knot this weekend in a small ceremony at their Beverly Hills estate.

Both wore outfits by designer Zac Posen.

De Rossi’s former flame is singer-songwriter Francesca Gregorini, whose stepfather is Ringo Starr.

DeGeneres’s ex-love is actress Anne Heche, who the comedian met shortly after she publicly came out in 1997.  For a while the couple were as happy as clams.

But in 2000 they split up.  Shortly after, Heche had a bizarre public meldown when she was found dazed and confused, mumbling about space aliens, and wandering through Fresno, California.

Later, in an interview with Barbara Walters, Heche explained that the incident was caused when her other personality (Celestia, an incarnation of God) instructed her to get high for a little ride in the sky.

“I was told to go to a place where I would meet a spaceship.  I was told in order to get on the spaceship that I would have to take a hit of ecstasy.”

Whee, good times!  Portia seems nice, but Anne is nutty fun!
