Ellen DeGeneres has made a name for herself by becoming the type of comedienne who does things that few would expect her to. A recent episode of her talk show left a number of viewers confused and for good reason. While there are often unexpected surprises on her show, this one was a particular doozy. She was in the midst of talking to her audience when she was interrupted by a phone call before she could bring out her guests.
The call clearly caught Ellen off guard. The audience wondered what could possibly be so important. As it turns out, the person on the other end of the call was actually Ellen’s receptionist. The receptionist had a message that needed to be delivered to someone in the audience. Once the camera panned outwards, it became obvious who the phone call was meant for.
