Ellen DeGenereres considering to end her daytime talk show

Maybe not a huge following here but I would watch occasionally when she has a good guest.

Maybe she is the biggest and most popular daytime host once Oprah retired.

Ellen DeGeneres is considering ending her run on daytime talk.
DeGeneres told the New York Times in a new interview that she's mulling what to do once her contract comes to an end in 2020.

DeGeneres renewed her deal in 2016 but had been "close to declining" the offer that would have kept her in front of daytime audiences through Season 17, according to the Times.

The comedian and host reportedly is torn between advice given to her from two significant people in her life: her brother and her wife, actress Portia de Rossi.

"She (de Rossi) gets mad when my brother tells me I can't stop," DeGeneres told the Times.

De Rossi, meanwhile, told the Times that she believes her wife has "other things she could tackle."

"The Ellen DeGeneres Show" has won 57 daytime Emmys since its debut in 2003.

I don't watch talk shows, but truly admire DeGeneres for her talent, positivity, and what she's done for the LGBT movement.

That said, yeah girl, do something else!

Re: Ellen DeGenereres considering to end her daytime talk show

She doesn't need the money. Her net worth is $450 million. I'm a huge fan of Ellen, she's my all-time favorite female comedian. I tried watching her talk show for a year or so and had to stop. It wasn't for me. I wouldn't mind if she continued doing that but she quit her other job to do it. Stand up. Which is criminal. That's where she shined the most (IMO). And other than those "Nemo" movies, she doesn't even act any more. I'm looking forward to her Netflix stand up special. Whenever that is. It was announced well over a year ago and there has been absolutely no update or news about it ever since.

Heard she's a tyrant to work for. Nobody I know that has worked on her show has had a good experience. Also know a guy that worked on her house. Just not a pleasant person. Said Portia was really nice although Ellen demanded that Portia not speak to the crew working on their house.

She's 60, worth half a billion and has a still cute wife. She can do literally anything she wants.

Thank you x 3 for posting this. I have literally done a Google search for news about this maybe once a week and came up empty.

Really with all the charity work she does?

Rachael Ray seems to be all cheery and perky but probably a B behind the scenes.

I worked with Rachel one time, she was nice, but she was all about knocking out the work as fast as she could. I could see her not being very nice if she didn't get her way or if production was slow that day...

I've also dealt with her on a project at her house along with her staff.

Yes, she is demanding. She knows what she wants and she expects it. I don't think that means she is a bitch. Like they say, if a man acts that way they call him a shrewd effective businessman.

Like many superrich people, when it comes time to payments they want to cut their bill down to the bare minimum when what they are paying is pocket change. That attitude is probably why they got to where they are.

She has made it clear that the 'nice' person she portrays on the talk show is a character and that it is not the real her.

I can't imagine having to act that way 24/7 so I'm glad to hear it. It actually makes her seem more normal.

Yeah, they didn't get to where they're at just by being super nice people. They can't all be Keanu Reeves.

Re: Ellen DeGenereres considering to end her daytime talk show

Wow I guess she is not the really nice and friendly person that we see on TV


The talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres has long been considered a beloved celebrity for her friendly and funny public demeanor. But in 2020, that all could change as complaints of inconsiderate behavior have popped up in recent news stories.

The Dutch beauty YouTuber Nikkie de Jager, also known as NikkieTutorials, was one of the first people to call out DeGeneres, saying on a talk show in her home country that the beloved host was "cold and distant" during de Jager's appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

In April, a Twitter thread asking for stories about DeGeneres being "one of the meanest people alive" was widely shared, garnering more than 2,000 replies of people describing uncomfortable or off-putting experiences with the host.

Crew members for "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" also spoke out this month, saying they had not received any communication from DeGeneres or show executives about their pay or working hours during the coronavirus pandemic.

Sounds like she wasn't treated like an A-list star she thinks she is.

I don't know anything about Nickie.. but she sounds a tad soft and a bit millenial-ish in her "plight". Maybe Nickie is a completely vapid and ignorant guest?
That said, I don't know Ellen other than some 5 minute blurbs on her late night game show.... oh, and she's Dory!

Johnny Carson was one of the biggest A-holes off camera, but he was the King of Late Night. I think most people like Carson and Ellen get to a certain status, and you just feel entitled to do anything you want. I would vouch to say most Hollywood people in general are probably a bunch of entitled jerkoffs too (part of the reason is they aren't self aware of anything living in their bubble), and every once in awhile you see a genuine/nice actor who really is genuine/nice.

Sorta off topic, but the one actor (who is not A-list by any means, which may explain this) that fits the description of "nice" is also an Ellen. But not Ellen DeGeneres, it's Ellen Wong (aka "Knives Chau" in the Scott Pilgrim movie). She was a guest at a film festival I work, and she quickly realized she'd rather hang out with the festival staff members instead of the other celebrities we had that year. I met her at a staff party, where she came up to me and introduced herself. Really cool person.[/i]

That is probably true about Nickie some hack celebrity.

Maybe it is just me but comedians seem like the biggest douchebags when it comes to celebrities.

Worst kept secret since Rosie O'Donnell came out as an insufferable bitch.
