Portia de Rossi to Launch Vegan Shoe Line

Both Portia de Rossi and wife Ellen DeGeneres have recently become strict vegans, and now Portia wants to extend her soft spot for animals by creating a vegan shoe line. Although both ladies are walking the straight and narrow now, Portia admits they were not always so cautious. "When Ellen and I first got together I was wearing fur and Ellen was wearing very expensive Italian calfskin leather. She was giving me a hard time about wearing the fur and I said, ‘Why is a fox any more important than a cow?’ … We took that idea and went all the way with it. We are doing what we can."
No word yet on when the shoe line will launch, but it is no doubt a risky endeavor. As you may recall, Natalie Portman launched a similar vegan shoe line which ended up going under. Here's hoping that Portia's line does not suffer a similar fate.
