The famous talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and the star of “Six Days, Seven Nights,” Anne Heche, made headlines when they made their romantic relationship publicly known in the late 1990s, a time when same-sex relationships were extremely uncommon. Unfortunately, the former couple didn’t stay together for very long and eventually split up in 2000, just like other well-known celebrity couples.

Heche hit a house with her car, starting a fire, getting multiple burns, and eventually being taken to the hospital. DeGeneres’ ex-girlfriend suffered severe burns as a result of the large fire, necessitating transport on a stretcher.
