Ellen: "I WILL Take This Lyin' Down"

4/30/2007 4:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Ellen DeGeneres hurt her back over the weekend -- and it's so bad that she's doing this week's shows from a hospital bed!
Ellen in hospital bed
The bed will be placed center stage on Ellen's set. She'll lob questions at Ryan Seacrest and Lindsay Lohan from a supine position. Seacrest will appear on tomorrow's show and Lindsay will talk to the bed on Wednesday.

Ellen was scheduled to do a show on a Delta Airlines 767 later in the week. It was a big deal that was sponsored by American Express. But we're told that on doctor's orders, Ellen can't travel, so the trip will be rescheduled.

Ellen was also forced to cancel on a charity event Saturday in Chicago for the Make A Wish Foundation.

It's unclear how Ellen screwed up her back. She'll say on the air. By the way, her doctors will give the audience their official diagnosis.

She is not a snob at all. We were on her show and she is just the friendliest person you can imagine. What makes you say she is a snob? Have you met her?

# 23 If you do not like her do not watch her! I think mommy and daddy really need to limit your computer time! It is because of people like you that the gay and lesbian crowd get a bad rap. None said you had to be her friend or even like her for that matter. I think you need jesus!

"Mama has to go watch Ellen, when she called today, I promised I would be there for her" They believe I actually talk to you everyday. So what??? Wanna make something of it? And..btw, I am not all that hung up thinking about Jesus and such, but who cares if I drink a lil bit?? Jesus should forgive me. Get better my dancin' queen.....I will hold down the fort.
