DeGeneres vows candor as clouded talk show charts its return

Tiffany Haddish Will Kick Off The New Season

Tiffany Haddish Will Kick Off The New Season

The 62-year-old daytime talk show host will be back on air for her 18th season on September 21, and she seemed to promise viewers she would be addressing the elephant in the room regarding reports of the programme's toxic workplace culture.

Reportedly, Hollywood actress Tiffany Hadish is going to feature in the first instalment of the brand new season which will be shot without an in-studio audience owing to the Coronavirus pandemic that is very much ongoing, lest we forget. "And yes, we're gonna talk about it", the statement from DeGeneres read.

Ellen DeGeneres poses in the press room at the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards on January 5, 2020, in Beverly Hills, Calif. DeGeneres says she'll be ready to talk when her daytime show returns this month after a staff shake-up prompted by allegations of a toxic workplace. Talking about the same, Ellen DeGeneres, said in a statement, "I can't wait to get back to work and back to our studio". While the following month is filled with names like Chris Rock, Amy Schumer, Adam Sandler and Orlando Bloom.

And by "it", DeGeneres is referring to allegations of racism, sexual harrasment and workplace toxicity leveled against her by anonymous former staffers.

The PMI balances have bounced back but they imply that the level of activity is still well below its pre-pandemic level in 3Q20. Coulton said Fitch now expects the USA economy to contract by 4.6% this year compared to a fall of 5.6% in the June GEO.

Stephen "tWitch" Boss, who was recently promoted to co-executive producer, is set to guest-host upcoming episodes of Ellen in the autumn.

An internal business evaluation of work states was motivated with a BuzzFeed News report from July according to 36 interviews using ex-staffers, who whined about or stated they watched improper and unjust treatment. The people making the claims were not identified. Last month Variety reported that she gave a virtual apology to more than 200 staff, verging on tears as she admitted she was "not perfect" and that her team had not been as sensitive as it should have been.

"I'm a multi-layered person, and I try to be the best person I can be and I try to learn from my mistakes", DeGeneres said.

In a July statement, Warner Bros. said parent company WarnerMedia's investigation revealed what it called "some flaws in the show's daily management".
