What the devil?

Ellen DeGeneres joked that wife Portia de Rossi’s body was invaded by a “demon” as she was writhing around in pain before her recent emergency appendectomy.

“So I rush her to the ER, and we’re driving and she’s in so much pain, and I’m worried about her, and 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,” DeGeneres jokes on Tuesday’s episode of her talk show.

“So anyway, they gave her a CT scan and I didn’t know what that was.” 

DeGeneres, 63, has previously said that she grew up without medicine or vaccinations in a Christian Science home.

DeGeneres recently rushed the former “Arrested Development” star to the hospital after she discovered her “on the floor on all fours.” De Rossi was admitted while DeGeneres was sent home as a result of COVID-19 protocols. She received a call the next morning that de Rossi had to have her appendix removed.

DeGeneres says her wife was “in a lot of pain” after surgery, but is “feeling much better now.”

“She’s home. She came home late yesterday,” she says. “Not all of her, she left her appendix at the hospital.”

Page Six confirmed on Monday that de Rossi, 48, was diagnosed with appendicitis and underwent surgery. Earlier in the pandemic, DeGeneres, 63, revealed she tested positive for COVID-19 and credited de Rossi with helping her recover from her symptoms, which included excruciating back pain.

“Didn’t know that that was a symptom but I talked to some other people — back pain. Who knew, how come?” she said. “Back pain, bad.”

DeGeneres and de Rossi married in 2008.
