Actress Portia De Rossi underwent emergency surgery on her appendix on Friday, but it seems she is doing well as wife and comedienne, Ellen Degeneres is updating fans in her signature, Ellen lighthearted way.
Addressing the scary situation that happened on Friday evening, Ellen explained in her talk show’s opening monologue that her Australian wife was not feeling well and decided to go to bed to sleep it off. Degeneres joked, “And it was like 8 o’clock and that’s early. I’m not used to going to bed that early. We go to bed around 8:30.”

Ellen went on to explain how she was abruptly woken up to find Portia was no longer sleeping beside her. “I get out of bed and I find Portia on the floor on all fours,” the talk-show host continued, “and I’m like, ‘Baby, are you okay?; And she says, ‘Yeah, I’m okay.’ And I said, “Well, you’re okay if you’re playing Twister by yourself, but you’re not okay…you’re on the floor!'”
