On Wednesday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the host will share a very brave story about how she broke her finger and ended up in the hospital.
“Before I do anything else, I have something to show you – it’s that right here. Can you see it? I broke my finger,” she starts her story. “I know what you’re thinking, how can you host a show without the tip of my ring finger? I am not gonna let this thing beat me. I am not,” the host jokes.
She then tells the audience she had two glasses of wine and fell into a door.
She and her wife Portia de Rossi were returning home from a dinner party and as DeGeneres approached their front door, she tripped and fell into it.
“Okay, so, my first thought was, No big deal. ObamaCare will cover this,” she says, making light of the situation.
After the hospital staff fixed her dislocated finger, DeGeneres was outside waiting for her car. A fan stopped her and asked for a selfie with her. They inquired why she was at the hospital and she told them about her finger. She asked them the same question and the fan had just been hit by a bus.
