Ellen DeGeneres is skilled at making fun of most anything, including her own health. As you may have read on TMZ, DeGeneres experienced some tightness in her chest yesterday, and before taping her show, called the paramedics to the Warner Bros. lot.

On Tuesday's show, Ellen addressed the scary incident in her monologue, assuring her loyal viewers that she was fine, while cracking several jokes about the experience of calling the paramedics.

Ellen quipped that 50 fire trucks and ambulances showed up, and that the scene was "one marching band short of a parade." She joked that the firemen broke through her office door with an axe, which was strange, considering the door was open. Ellen closed by thanking TMZ for caring so much about her health.

Check out the video after the jump, and rest assured that Ellen is doing fine.

Ellen DeGeneres, 'HGV'd'Ellen DeGeneres teamed with HGTV for a crossover event on 'HGTV'd' (Mon, 10PM ET on HGTV). She received a request for tickets to her show from a military family, but decided to up the ante for them. She teamed with David Bromstad and the 'HGTV'd' crew to surprise the family with a $100,000 makeover for their backyard.

Bromstad did an amazing job, creating an oasis for the family when husband Ryan is at home, and a great place for Krystal to relax when her husband is deployed overseas.

But the team didn't stop there. They went inside the house and gave the living room and bedroom a makeover as well, with all new furniture and carpeting, and even new artwork for the wall. It was a way for DeGeneres to thank Ryan for his service, and it was all the couple could do to pick their jaws off the ground and thank everyone.
