Ellen DeGeneres, 63, made the admission that what she did was “probably not safe” to Jimmy Kimmel Tuesday during a marijuana-themed episode of his show. “I drank one, and I didn’t feel anything, so I drank three, and then I took two melatonin sleep pills,” she revealed.
“I drank one, and I didn’t feel anything, so I drank three, and then I took two melatonin sleep pills,” she continued. “And I’m laying in bed, and I realize [Portia’s] not in bed,” Ellen DeGeneres said.
“She’s moaning. I get out of bed, and she’s on the ground on all fours, and I said, ‘You’re not OK.’ She goes, ‘I’m OK.’ I said, ‘No, unless you’re playing Twister by yourself, you’re not OK.’ So I rushed her to the emergency room.”
Ellen DeGeneres explained that she found Portia de Rossi, 48, on the bathroom floor of their home, visibly in pain — but only after the daytime talk-show host had consumed three Cann drinks and the sleep aid melatonin. She then drove de Rossi to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy.
Jimmy Kimmel, 53, asked Ellen DeGeneres, “You drove her by yourself?” “I did,” she replied. “I mean, I kicked in, like my adrenaline, because I just had to rush her there. It’s probably not safe. “I shouldn’t be saying any of this,” DeGeneres added.
