PORTIA de Rossi, the longtime wife of Ellen DeGeneres, was rushed to the hospital on March 19, 2021.
The actress has since been released and is “doing well,” according to People.
What happened to Ellen DeGeneres’ wife Portia de Rossi?
Portia de Rossi, 48, underwent emergency surgery for appendicitis.
“Ellen rushed Portia to the hospital on Friday night, she was in a lot of pain,” a source told People.
“It was appendicitis and she had surgery.”
Appendicitis, while a common condition, can cause excruciating pain and can be fatal if not treated quickly.
Problems occur when the lining of the appendix is blocked and becomes inflamed.
Portia has been married to the 63-year-old Ellen since 2008.
It had previously been revealed that ratings for Ellen’s show have slipped.
According to research firm Nielsen, The Ellen DeGeneres Show has been losing viewers since the premiere of its 18th season in September 2020.
The global measurement and data analytics company recorded viewers for the program have gone from 2.6 million in the same period last year, to averaging 1.5 million viewers over the last six months.
The longtime host received backlash in 2020 after numerous former employees called out her program for allowing a “toxic” work environment.
Ellen’s “be kind” persona was questioned after claims hit that the TV personality’s show tolerated everything from bullying to racism to sexual harassment.
Warner Bros. investigated the allegations with many high up employees either forced to leave, or in some cases, even fired – three top producers were given the boot.
Ellen, who dealt with Covid in December 2020, gave a teary-eyed apology to her staff, and again mentioned the allegations on the season premiere of her program.
