Ellen DeGeneres lost a battle with the stairs after having just two glasses of wine — and she ended up in the hospital.
The host explained on Tuesday’s show that she dislocated her finger after missing the last stair on the staircase and falling into a door.
“Portia (de Rossi) and I were coming home from a dinner party,” Ellen explained. “(We) drive home, almost at the front door, literally like at the door. The dogs were so excited to see us, and I just caught the lip of the top step. I was like a foot away from the door and I fell into the door…”
She said she knew something was wrong by looking at her crooked finger, which she showed a photo of to her audience.
“My first thought was no big deal Obamacare will cover this,” she joked. “So, Portia drove me to the hospital — to the emergency room, and when I got there of course the receptionist had so many things for me to sign — a picture for her nephew, a t-shirt for her…”
