Ellen DeGeneres Is Taking Care Of Portia De Rossi After Emergency Appendicitis Surgery
On Friday night, Ellen DeGeneres was forced to take a break from her usual routine (dipping apples into poison, casting evil curses on newborns, hosting her waning talk show) to rush her wife Portia DeRossi to the hospital. A source told People that Portia was in “a lot of pain”, and it turned out to be appendicitis. She had to get emergency surgery. Ouchy-wahwah! The source added that Portia is “now resting at home and Ellen is taking care of her. It was a scare at first, but all good now.”
Appendicitis is when the lining of your appendix gets blocked, becomes inflamed, and causes intense pain. If not treated immediately, it can burst. And that’s bad. But of course, you know all about appendicitis. Urkel had it:
As for Portia and Ellen’s relationship after the talk show host’s terrible, horrible no good very bad 2020? The couple told People last month:
“We’ve grown together as a couple, and we really consider each other and put our relationship first,” de Rossi told PEOPLE in February of their marriage. “By doing that, you become a lot more solid. I can’t imagine spending time with anyone but her.”
Added DeGeneres: “We think the same things, say the same things at the same time, finish each other’s sandwiches — no, sentences. We’re in a rhythm that’s easy.”
I’m happy Portia is safe and sound after her health scare, and I’m sure Ellen truly cares about her wife… but lady sure as hell wouldn’t be my first pick to play nurse. Hell, I’ll take Nurse Ratched over the Queen of Mean. At least Ratched has the good pills. And she might even let you look her in the eye.
