Ricky Gervais: Health Scare
Comedian Ricky Gervais joined Ellen and admitted that he is a hypochondriac. Therefore, every day is a health scare for him! But he did have an actual health scare on a recent television set that he shared with Ellen and the audience. While filming, Ricky began experiencing severe stomach pains. He then experienced a fever and swelling, which had him thinking that he was on death’s door. He was examined by a doctor and found out that he had gastric flu, and he’s since recovered. Crisis averted!
Ricky Gervais: Kate Walsh Has A Crush On Ricky
Comedian Ricky Gervais caused a huge stir when he hosted the Golden Globes in 2010 and 2011, insulting many of Hollywood’s biggest names (but also bringing them to tears with laughter). However, with the 2012 Emmy Awards coming up, Ricky is letting Jimmy Kimmel handle the hosting duties and will act only as presenter.
At the awards ceremony, Ricky may run into actress Kate Walsh. Ellen informed Ricky that Kate recently gave an interview for Shape Magazine. She was quoted as saying, “George Clooney and Clive Owen are both hot, but I tend to go for men who can make me laugh. So to me, Ricky Gervais is really sexy.”
“She’s only human,” Ricky joked. But he also added, “she doesn’t mean it.” Ricky revealed that he won a poll in England for “women’s weirdest crush.” He also topped a list of “people you fancy but wouldn’t admit it.”
Ricky Gervais: Twitter @RickyGervais
Ricky loves Twitter; he’s a total fanatic. You can follow him @RickyGervais. He recently tweeted about needing to get his hands on the new iPhone 5. “I’ve had my iPhone for nearly six months, so it’s time for a new one,” he joked about the brand that releases a new product every other day. However, Ellen bragged to Ricky that she has him beaten with Twitter followers. Ellen (@TheEllenShow) has 14 million, while poor Ricky has just 3 million.
