Poor Ellen DeGeneres! The comedian revealed on her daytime talk show that she recently made a trip to the hospital after taking a fall right into a door.
Thankfully, the hilarious host will be just fine, but she is still recovering from a dislocated finger. So naturally, being Ellen, she just had to poke a little fun at herself about her accident on her own show.

“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 said to her audience.
She explained that she was coming home from a dinner party and was almost at her front door when it happened.
“The dogs were so excited to see us and I caught the lip of the top step,” she said. “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 then shocked her audience by showing them all a photo of her finger, followed by an X-ray–both a little difficult to look at.
“I dislocated my finger,” she said. “That’s what they call it, which is an incorrect term because I knew where it was located. It was just wrongly located is what it was.”
Though she does have to wear a splint for the time being, it’s good to hear that she didn’t break her finger at all and it should be on the way to healing properly.
Feel better soon, Ellen!
