Boozing Ellen DeGeneres Ends Up In The Emergency Room After Home Accident

As he explained shortly after the incident, "I get up and my finger is sideways".

"Portia (de Rossi) and I were coming home from a dinner party", DeGeneres explained while visions of a celebrity dinner party filled our heads.

The Emmy-winner said during the monologue of her show on Tuesday that she fell into a door during an evening out with wife Portia de Rossi, resulting in a trip to the hospital.

I think of Ellen DeGeneres as such a national treasure that I would lose it if anyone ever hurt a hair on her head, but her recent injury is all her own doing. and, you know, a little alcohol may have been involved.

The American star has still maintained her sense of humor as she even poked fun at her diagnosis by saying: 'I dislocated my finger.

"DeGeneres now joins Jimmy Fallon in the television-hosts-that-broke-their-finger's club".

She made light of the accident while describing it to her audience on Ellen yesterday, quipping: "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?"

DeRossi drove her to the emergency room, where she did not have a good time. "Thank you so much. What happened to you?' And he goes, 'I got hit by a bus"... So he and his girlfriend are sitting there getting a selfie and he says, 'I hope you're going to be OK.' And I said, 'I just dislocated my finger. "It's very technical. What they do is they take the part that's dislocated and then they just snap it right back into place. Ya, you can see why they have to go to eight years of medical school".

"It did something to my finger", she recounts while showing a photo of her injured hand. "I invented three new ones, actually".
