Ellen DeGeneres’ Medical Scare


A medical scare, or any health emergency for that matter, is indeed no laughing matter – but the comedian and daytime talk show host still chooses to poke fun at the latest medical emergency she has had. Using her trademark humor, DeGeneres reassured her fans she is doing just fine.

“The paramedics were strippers that I had called. That’s how the rumors got started. I woke up in the middle of the night….[feeling] like something was heavy on my chest and it was a cat, so I moved it. I still felt the tightness and heaviness, so there was another cat under that cat. There were two cats on my chest,” Ellen joked.

A more serious Ellen recounted the health scare to her TV audience late Monday, revealing that she first felt “tightness and heaviness” in her chest Sunday, but waited until Monday morning to call paramedics.

DeGeneres also expressed her deep appreciation for the medical team who came to her aid, saying, “It’s better to be safe than sorry. Who doesn’t want to see a fireman occasionally? I want to say thank you to all the paramedics and the nurses who showed up…I appreciate it.”
