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!

Usually these are nothing more than ploy for more money.

Maybe she'll be able to adopt more dogs now.

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.
