Ellen is OK

US TV personality Ellen Degeneres was caught up in a
health scare on Monday (26 September) after suffering chest pains during a
production meeting.

The comedian was planning ahead for her hit daytime talk
show on the Warner Brothers lot in Los Angeles when she started complaining of
problems.

TMZ.com reports the Burbank Fire Department dispatched a
crew to the scene just before noon local time and Ellen was checked out by
paramedics.

Feeling fine hours after the medical emergency, the talk
show host sent a statement to WENN, revealing the problems started at home on
Sunday night. “I woke up in the middle of the night. I was feeling a tightness
of my chest and all the scary things...like something was heavy on my chest and
it was a cat so I moved it,” she spilled. “I still felt the tightness and
heaviness, so there was another cat under that cat. There were two cats on my
chest. Then I got to work and it was still happening. I was still feeling the
pains. I was like, ‘I should check this out. It’s better to be safe than sorry.’
Who doesn’t want to see a fireman occasionally?”

“We called the paramedics here on the Warner Bros. lot
and about 50 trucks and ambulances, like, one marching band short of a parade
showed up outside of my office. Then they came in with an axe and broke the
door down. It was open. I don’t know why they did that. They came in, they
asked me all the questions – ‘How are you feeling? When did it start? Family
history...?’ But everything is fine. I don’t know what it is but it’s fine. I
want to say thank you to all the paramedics and the nurses who showed up.”
