Ellen DeGeneres had to go to the hospital this week but don’t worry, she’s fine and has a new story to tell in a way that only Ellen can do.
See that tape on her finger?
She pulled a Jimmy Fallon and injured herself on the way home after a night out and a couple of glasses of wine with her wife, Portia de Rossi, dislocating her finger.
“I broke my finger. I know what you’re thinking how can you host a show without the tip of your ring finger? I’m not going to let this beat me. I am not!,” DeGeneres exclaimed on her show Monday.
“So, you know how in gymnastics when you do a one-handed cartwheel and you have to spread the weight evenly between all your fingers? Well, I had two glasses of wine and fell into a door,” she explained.
“My first thought was no big deal, Obamacare will cover this,” she said.
“Turns out I didn’t break it, I dislocated my finger…which is an incorrect term because I knew where it was located,” she added. “It was just wrongly located.”
“It was a hard weekend for me, but I put on a brave face and I made it through,” she joked. “Luckily, my friends from Shutterfly heard my story and they love helping people out in need, so they wanted to present me with this check for $10,000, which is so nice,” she said, poking fun at herself and her show.
If you watch, you know Shutterfly and other donors often give her guests money and donations.
She even tweeted out a picture of the X-ray, which looks, well, gross.
But she’s on the mend and can still dance, which of course, is most important.
