DeGeneres, 56, who married the actress in 2008, is determined to do anything to make sure Portia, 41, remains healthy following the successful 30-day period at Passages Malibu rehabilitation facility, reports contactmusic.com.
"Ellen has always been a big drinker. She loves her wine but she's realised her behaviour has only enabled Portia to drink as well, and she feels partially responsible for Portia's rehab stint," a source was quoted as saying.
In 2000, Portia had been admitted to a rehabilitation centre for treatment for an eating disorder after her weight reportedly plunged to just 82 lbs (about 38 kgs).
