It’s the battle of the spouses!

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi went up against Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone on The Ellen Degeneres Show Wednesday in the “Not-So-Newlywed Game” – a play off of the old game show The Newlywed Game.

tWitch hosted the game (he donned a large wig, patterned pants and a big bow tie), asking each couple a series of revealing questions to determine how well the spouses know or don’t know each other.

The first question went to McCarthy, 45, and Falcone, 42, who have been married for almost 10 years. tWitch asked the couple what word they would use to describe each other.

McCarthy, up first, said “chatty.” And although super sweet, Falcone’s answer was wrong.

“I said ‘lovely and amazing'” Falcone said, causing the crowd to erupt in a unison “Aw!”

De Rossi, 42, and DeGeneres, 57, who celebrated their seventh wedding anniversary in August, were up next. Overly confident, de Rossi proclaimed “easy” when tWitch asked her what celebrity DeGeneres has a crush on.

De Rossi held up a card reading “Justin Timberlake,” but unbeknownst to De Rossi, DeGeneres apparently has the hots for a certain boy-bander: Harry Styles.

DeGeneres and de Rossi came out on top (both correctly answered what celebrity de Rossi has a crush on and where they shared their both kiss). But even when the couple got an answer wrong, their knowledge of each other never ceased to shine through.

They flunked which candy the other would use to describe their love life (DeGeneres chose Hot Tamales and de Rossi chose Oh Henry!”), but

“I just thought it was the funniest one, and you always go for the joke,” de Rossi told her wife.
