'Will & Grace' Star Sean Hayes Comes Clean About Recent Hospitalization

NBC's ‘Will & Grace’ has returned to much fanfare. The show originally ran from 1998 through 2006, and it was a rating success that racked up its share of awards. We’ll have to wait and see if it’s able to reach similar heights now that it’s back, but early returns are promising. The show revolves around four friends, including main characters Will Truman and Grace Adler, played by Eric McCormack and Debra Messing respectively. Truman is a gay lawyer, while Adler is his straight friend that lives with him.

Sean Hayes plays Truman’s gay neighbor and friend, Jack McFarland, while Megan Mullally plays Karen Walker, Adler’s assistant for her interior design business to round out the main cast. Unfortunately, things haven’t been going along too swimmingly for one cast member. As E News shares, Hayes has revealed that a recent health scare led to his hospitalization.

Hayes was chatting with Ellen DeGeneres when he dropped the news. The noted funnyman put an amusing spin on things, but he’s fortunate that his scare didn’t turn out much worse.

"I went to bed at night and all the sudden I felt this excruciating pain in my stomach," Hayes explained. "I went to the E.R. and thank God I did."

When he got to the hospital, he would learn that his small intestine had actually ruptured, and his body was being poisoned as a result. He had to have a procedure to have that taken care of, but it sounds like he’s feeling much better now.

"They went in there and they clipped off the bad part and put it back together with like a chip clip, you know?" he said. "They put you on so many drugs, you’re like high out of your mind."

For fun, Hayes decided to bring a game to Ellen’s show for him and the host to partake in. He brought in one of those breathing contraptions that patients use in the hospital as part of their recovery, and he had some instructions for the host - which of course led to a hilarious back and forth.

"Let's play the game and whoever can suck their balls the hardest wins," he explained.

"You suck, not blow?" DeGeneres replied.

"Of course, I'd have to teach her," Hayes said.

Hayes would go on to win, but he had a consolation of sorts for Ellen.

"Look, it doesn't matter who won, as long as we both suck," Hayes said.

Hayes is pretty big hit on the talk show circuit for his affable and humorous ways, and he certainly didn’t disappoint this time around. As for the show’s revival, it’s unclear how long it’s going to stick around this time, but fans of the original seem to be enjoying the latest run as well. For Hayes, he’s fortunate to have made it through such a serious health scare without any further complications. While he’s able to laugh it off now, we’d imagine it was a pretty trying set of circumstances to experience.
