The best accidents are wine-related accidents...

Ellen Degeneres revealed on her talkshow yesterday that she had a "little accident" over the weekend.

She told the audience:

"I have something to show you—it's that right here. Can you see it?"

DeGeneres asked, directing the camera to show her splint.

"I broke my finger. I know what you're thinking: 'How can you host a show without the tip of my ring finger?' I am not gonna let this thing beat me. I am not."

"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 added that she and wife Portia De Rossi "were coming home from a dinner party" and were "almost at the front door" when the accident occurred.

"The dogs were so excited to see us and I caught the lip of the top step. 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."

She then showed a photo of her dislocated finger. "I should have warned you. Don't look at that. If you're squeamish, don't look at it," she told them. "I'm sorry."
