Ellen DeGeneres is 'fine' after a reported scare over chest pains. TMZ reported paramedics were called to the studio where she tapes her show because the comedienne was experiencing 'discomfort and tightness' in her chest. The popular 53 year old talk show host woke up in the middle of the night, and decided to get checked out when it was still bothering her when she arrived for work.

"Then I got to work and it was still happening. I was still feeling the pains. So I was like, 'ya know, I should check this out.' It's better to be safe than sorry. Who doesn't want to see a fireman occasionally?"    -Ellen DeGeneres
