Ellen asked her audience, "Anybody else have to rush their wife to the emergency room for an appendectomy? Anybody? No? Just me? OK." Apparently, the Arrested Development star was not feeling good on Friday night and Ellen found Portia "on the floor on all fours."

Ellen jumped into action and quickly put her into their car. "So I rush her to the ER, and we're driving and she's in so much pain, and I'm worried about her." Ellen joked, "I don't know what's wrong with her, because as you know, I grew up Christian Science, so my best guess was a demon."

"So anyway, they gave her a CT scan and I didn't know what that was." Sadly because of coronavirus protocols, Ellen had to leave Portia in the hospital overnight. "The next morning, they call and they said, 'It's the appendix. We have to take the appendix out."

After her surgery, Portia de Rossi was "in a lot of pain" but is luckily "feeling much better now. She's home. She came home late yesterday. Not all of her, she left her appendix at the hospital."

What a scary turn of events!
