Ellen DeGeneres revealed her big break in comedy was inspired by one of the most tragic losses in her life.

Years before coming out on her TV series and the subsequent success of her daytime talk show, the star was struggling to make ends meet in New Orleans. As DeGeneres recalled to Dax Shepard in his Armchair Expert podcast Tuesday, a relationship early in her life heavily impacted the trajectory of her career.

“My girlfriend was killed in a car accident when I was like 20 years old. And I wasn’t doing comedy, I think I was probably waitressing someplace at the time. I was living with her when she was killed,” DeGeneres said.

  Jimmy Kimmel Reveals Why He and Wife Molly 'Didn't Want to Get Too Close' to Son Billy at First Jimmy Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney overcame a heart-wrenching few months when their baby son William “Billy” John underwent two heart surgeries. Billy, now 11 months old, was born with congenital heart condition tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia, which his famous father first revealed during a tearful address in May when Kimmel, 50, announced that his youngest child had open heart surgery at 3 days old. Reflecting on Billy’s health condition, the late-night host recently told Oprah Winfrey that he and McNearney had brief feelings of detachment. “There were secrets we kept from each other that we revealed only after the second surgery. The biggest one was that, I think subconsciously, we didn’t want to get too close to the baby because we didn’t know what was going to happen,” Kimmel said in an interview for O, The Oprah Magazine‘s April issue.

But when I told her I was feeling that way, she said, ‘Oh I’m so happy you said that because I was feeling that way too, and I didn’t want to express it,’ ” the father of four recalled. Kimmel and McNearney also share 3-year-old daughter, Jane. The 2018 Oscars host has two older children – Kevin and Katie – from a previous relationship.

“I couldn’t afford to live where we were living together and so I moved into this tiny little basement apartment,” the 10-time Emmy winner remembered. “I moved into this basement apartment and I was sleeping on a mattress on a floor and it was infested with fleas. And I used to write all the time, I wrote poetry and songs and stuff, and I thought, ‘Why is this beautiful 21-year-old girl just gone and fleas are here?’ ”

“I just thought it would be amazing if we could just pick up the phone and call up God and ask questions and get an answer,” DeGeneres recalled about her famous “Phone Call to God” bit.

Ellen DeGeneres Says She Was 'Depressed' After Coming Out — and Felt 'Hurt' by Elton John

  Ellen DeGeneres Says She Was 'Depressed' After Coming Out — and Felt 'Hurt' by Elton John It’s been over 20 years since Ellen DeGeneres came out as a lesbian — but she still vividly remembers the milestone moment. Opening up to Dax Shepard on his Armchair Expert podcast this week, the comedian reflected on the trajectory of her career, touching on the cancelation of her popular ABC sitcom, Ellen. In April 1997, DeGeneres publicly came out on the cover of Time magazine — just weeks before her character on the show did the same on the now-iconic “Puppy Episode.” “[The show ended] because I came out,” said DeGeneres. “This is a long, long story — but they really didn’t want me to come out. I wanted to come out. I said, ‘It’s my life. I want to come out. I want the character to come out. It’s the time.’ I said, ‘I’m going to lose the career. Like, you can just put another show on. It’s my show to lose’ — even though it wasn’t my show.” “They finally let me come out, and it was a huge success the night of,” she continued. “It was huge. It was celebrated … and then they just stopped promoting it because everybody was scared. We were losing sponsors, so they were just acting like, ‘We’re just letting it glide. We’re not going to touch it.’ I got no more advertising, I got no more promotion. So they canceled it.” RELATED: Ellen DeGeneres Opens Up About the ‘Guilt’ She Felt at Age 20 After Her Late Girlfriend’s Death In the period that followed, DeGeneres, 61, said she faced significant backlash.

“It just unfolded, I just wrote the entire thing and when I finished, I read it and I thought, ‘Oh my God, that’s hilarious. I’m going to do this on Johnny Carson and I’m going to be the first woman in the history of the show be asked to sit down.’ ”

After her prediction, DeGeneres appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in November 1986 and became the first female comedian to be invited to sit down on Carson’s couch after a stand-up routine.

Shepard noted that DeGeneres’ wife Portia de Rossi proudly played the Carson episode during the star’s 60th birthday party in February for all their famous friends and guests.

Back in October 2015, DeGeneres talked about the death of her girlfriend in an episode of Oprah’s Master Class.

Explaining how the pair had broken up due to a big fight, DeGeneres recalled how she ignored her girlfriend when she attempted to reconcile their relationship when they went out to support her older brother’s music gig.

  Kendall Jenner Says She Got Her Inner Lip Tattoo When She Was Drunk: ‘I Was Not Thinking Clearly’ The 22-year-old model appeared on Thursday’s episode of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show.’The 22-year-old supermodel got the word “meow” inked on the inside of her lip in September 2016 and she opened up about the decision on Thursday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“She was trying to get me to come back home. I acted like I couldn’t hear her because the music was too loud. I was being really … dismissive of her,” she remembered.

The pair went home separately with DeGeneres driving back with her friends and passing an accident in which a vehicle was “split in two.”

It wasn’t until the next morning that she learned that her girlfriend had died in that very same wreck. “That, of course, made me feel like I should have gone home with her that night,” DeGeneres said, adding that she felt “a lot of guilt.”

“In an instant, she just was gone. It shifted my entire focus,” she said.
