'Ellen' Producer Responds to Claims She's Quitting the Show

Guests ‘coached’ into showering Ellen De Generes with praise during show

Guests ‘coached’ into showering Ellen De Generes with praise during show

The Ellen DeGeneres Show, or Ellen, which has been on air since 2003, has come under fire following allegations of sexual misconduct and abusive behaviour perpetrated by writers and producers at the high-rating daytime talk show.

Staffers with "The Ellen Show" are "freaking out" over the reported possibility of Ellen DeGeneres exiting the show following allegations by employees of a "toxic work environment", the U.S. weekly magazine suggested. The 53-year-old producer posted a meme that read, "Me: I really think 2020 is gonna turn around and start getting better".

"I seriously wish you well", the fan tweeted.

Contrary to reports of staffers said to be anxious about the show's end, others claim it is DeGeneres herself who "created and then enabled this toxic culture to go on for so long".

After interviewing dozens of current and former staffers about the work environment on the show, WarnerMedia released a statement that the company was "disappointed that the primary findings of the investigation indicated some deficiencies related to the show's day-to-day management". This directly goes against DeGeneres' mantra of telling people to "be kind" to one another, something she says at the end of every episode.

Congress has been negotiating another relief package, but those talks hit an impasse Wednesday, according to The Washington Post . More than 30.2 million people were receiving benefits for the week ended July 11, down 1.6 million from the previous week .

"That "be kind" bulls-t only happens when the cameras are on".

It comes after staff reportedly hit back at the host's apology following accusations of bullying by the show's executives. "I know they give money to people and help them out, but it's for show". One insider has claimed Ellen would frequently hire Marty Singer to attack people who she felt had betrayed her or slighted her in any way.

"Everybody Loves Raymond" star Brad Garrett shared Variety's article about a letter DeGeneres sent to her staff. And for that, I am sorry.

Sources close to the comedian told the New York Post that hearsay about her "career death" has been exaggerated and despite her empire going down in shambles, the talk show host has no plans of walking away from it.
