Ellen DeGeneres Had A Couple Glasses Of Wine And Ended Up In The Hospital
Ellen DeGeneres showed up Tuesday to her show with her finger in a splint and explained to her audience that she suffered the injury while falling into a door after drinking some wine.
“So, you know how in gymnastics when you do a one-handed cart-wheel and you have to spread the weight evenly between all your fingers,” DeGeneres said. “Well, I had two glasses of wine and fell into a door.” (RELATED: Ellen DeGeneres On Obama: ‘I Am A Legally Married Woman Because Of Him’)
“I was a foot away from the door and I fell into the door and it did something to my finger, I knew something was wrong,” she continued. “Portia [De Rossi] drove me to the hospital — to the emergency room. I dislocated my finger.”
“That’s what they call it, which is an incorrect term because I knew where it was located,” DeGeneres said. “It was just wrongly located is what it was. So, do you know what they do when you dislocate your finger?”
“It’s very technical,” she joked. “What they do is they take the part that’s dislocated and then they just snap it right back into place. Before they did it, I was in incredible pain and [my nurse] said, ‘Do you want a shot?’ And I said, ‘No, I had two glasses of wine — that’s what got me into this mess in the first place.’ She meant a shot to numb my finger. She said, ‘You’re gonna feel a little prick.’ This is a daytime show — you make up your own joke there.”
