Something was wrong with Ellen DeGeneres a week ago Thursday -- her eyes were all puffy, and she looked as if a tiny, adorable kitten had died in her arms moments before she hit the soundstage to shoot her chat show. She couldn't even get a real laugh out of a segment with "Meet the Fockers" star Teri Polo.

Heidi Klum's rescue of her son and two nannies from a riptide in Hawaii two weeks ago continues to get attention, with Klum herself shedding new light on the event on Friday with Ellen DeGeneres. Turns out the nannies were actually in more danger than her 7-year-old son, Henry, was, thanks to swimming lessons he and the rest of the Klum clan got starting when they were 2 years old. "Henry was not as much in trouble as the grown-ups were, to be honest, because he's a really good swimmer and he's very strong, and I guess because he's really athletic and he knows how to swim so well," the supermodel and "America's Got Talent" judge said.
