Ellen DeGeneres, previously, revealed that she suffered a neck injury.
Last year, Ellen DeGeneres entered the Ellen Show studio with crutches. She quickly told the audience that she has good news and bad news.
DeGeneres, who is a comedian, said that the good news is that she doesn’t need to use crutches. The bad news, on the other hand, was she injured her neck.
But instead of lulling in pain, the funny woman made fun of the situation. She linked the incident to her not being straight.
“(My chiropractor) said my feet don’t point in the right direction, one leg is longer than the other, my shoulders are humped, and my hips are uneven. Basically, he said nothing about me is straight,” DeGeneres said.
Ellen DeGeneres details her neck injury
Portia de Rossi’s wife also shared what she did the day before that might have contributed to her neck injury.
“I went to turn my head and then my neck disagreed with that situation. It just seized up and then I felt like there was a rod going down my back, and I thought, ‘Well, if I just ignore it, it would go away,’ like a toothache or global warming,” she said.
In the next two episodes of The Ellen Show, DeGeneres’ injury still didn’t get better. But she gave her audience another update.
She said that she initially thought that she strained her neck. But her chiropractor told her that she sprained it.
Ellen DeGeneres suffered from depression after coming out
Years ago, Ellen DeGeneres also spoke candidly on her other health issues. On the podcast Armchair Expert, she told host Dax Shepard that she became depressed after she came out as gay in the 90s.
“Everybody assumed I was just nonstop talking about it. It hurt my feelings. I was getting jokes made at my expense on every late-night show, people were making fun of me. I was really depressed,” she said.
Portia de Rossi bulimia, anorexia struggles
DeGeneres’ wife also struggled with health problems of her own. While she was starring in Ally McBeal, de Rossi suffered from anorexia and bulimia.
Years after de Rossi checked herself into a rehab facility, the actress still said that she continues to live in shame due to her previous struggles.
In the online video series It Got Better, de Rossi revealed that there were times when she would starve herself for 10 days before going on the catwalk. As she got older, the Scandal actress found love and support from her wife, Ellen DeGeneres.
