The daytime host comically explained on Tuesday’s show that her dislocated finger — which she vowed would not “beat” her — was the result of falling into a door after two glasses of vino. Stars, they are just like us!
“Portia (de Rossi) and I were coming home from a dinner party,” DeGeneres explained while visions of a celebrity dinner party filled our heads. “(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…”
The comedian said she knew something was amiss as evidenced by her crooked finger, which she showed a photo of to her audience.
This is my finger. Seriously. Find out what happened tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/oy4sAyvPDN
