Early Monday morning during a meeting with her producer’s, comedian and talk show host Ellen Degeneres began having heart pains and a clenching in her chest so her assistant immediately called 911. Thankfully, Ellen is ok and was being precautious – who wouldn’t be?
The news was first broken by TMZ, who were quick to speculate about Ellen’s condition. In saying that, anytime a 911 call is placed, there is always cause to worry. Ellen is a vibrant and healthy 53 year old (why do I talk like I actually know these people?), so when the talk show host complained of pains, all was taken seriously.
First of all – Ellen is 53? Dang she looks great; gimme some of what she’s got. Secondly, we’ve all learned in our lives all too well that anything can happen, and better safe than sorry. Ellen was in good spirits when later taping her show, even crediting TMZ for being the first to break the story. Good spirited and funny Ellen means a healthy Ellen in my books, so let’s stay that way lady.
