Looks like the vino got the best of Ellen DeGeneres! The comedian was recently hospitalized with an injured finger after she fell following two glasses of wine. “So, you know how in gymnastics when you do a one-handed cartwheel and you have to spread the weight evenly between all your fingers? Well, I had two glasses of wine and fell into a door,” DeGeneres jokes in a segment on her talk show airing Tuesday while sporting a bandage on her left ring finger.  Ellen was coming home from a dinner party with her wife, actress Portia de Rossi, when the accident occurred.”The dogs were so excited to see us and I caught the lip of the top step,” she recalled. “I was a foot away from the door and I fell into the door and it did something to my finger, I knew something was wrong.” The result- a dislocated finger, which landed Ellen in the ER.  She shared a picture of her x-ray with her studio audience, with out warning them that it may be a little disturbing. “I should have warned you. Don’t look at that,’ DeGeneres joked. “If you’re squeamish, don’t look at it. I’m sorry.”
