Portia de Rossi Tells How Her Horse Saved Her Life
Portia de Rossi was at one time struggling with anorexia and bulimia. She was on a 300 calorie diet and weighed only 82 pounds!
Portia opened up to Oprah, about how horseback riding was what helped her recover from her eating disorders.
She takes us on a tour of the 26-acre farm she shares with wife, Ellen DeGeneres, and introduces us to her horses which she rides a few times a week.
Portia explained that when she started riding her horse May, she stopped caring about counting calories and "wanted energy so I could learn how to ride her and take care of her."
