A little health scare for Ellen DeGeneres this week.
The talk show host started suffering from chest pains during a production meeting on Monday afternoon, and paramedics were dispatched to the studio.
In a statement to WENN DeGeneres writes:
“I woke up in the middle of the night. I was feeling a tightness of my chest and all the scary things… 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. Then I got to work and it was still happening. I was still feeling the pains.
“I was like… ‘I should check this out. It’s better to be safe than sorry.’ Who doesn’t want to see a fireman occasionally?
“We called the paramedics here on the Warner Bros. lot and about 50 trucks and ambulances, like, one marching band short of a parade showed up outside of my office. Then they come in with an axe. Break the door down. It was open. I don’t know why they did that. They came in, they asked me all the questions – ‘How are you feeling? When did it start? Family history…?’
“But everything is fine. I don’t know what it is but it’s fine…. I want to say thank you to all the paramedics and the nurses who showed up.”
We hope everything is alright! Stay well, Ellen!
