Ellen DeGeneres dislocates finger carrying wine glasses

Music 23/03/2017
Comedian Ellen DeGeneres dislocated her finger while holding two glasses of wine, but lived to tell the tale on her daytime talk 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 joked.

DeGeneres arrived home after a dinner party with wife Portia de Rossi when she tripped over the top step, ramming her finger into the front door; doctors were able to pop it back into place.

But the 59-year-old says she still had a bit of a laugh in the UCLA Hospital emergency room upon realising her injury wasn't the worst in there.

A couple asked her for a selfie and afterwards, the man wished her well on her recovery.

When she asked why he was in the emergency room he replied: "I got hit by a bus".
