    At the end of a rocky 2020-21 season, following a toxic workplace environment controversy and amid declining ratings, Ellen DeGeneres is ending her daytime talk show. DeGeneres’ current contract takes The Ellen DeGeneres Show through the upcoming 2021-2022 season, the show’s 19th, and it will now be the program’s final chapter. Like this past year for the show, the announcement of its end was messy, with the news leaking to a tabloid, The Daily Mail, which broke it early Wednesday morning, thwarting DeGeneres’ and the show’s producer Warner Bros.’ plans of announcing the news on their own terms. DeGeneres will...

    Ellen DeGeneres is catching heat online for admitting that she drove her wife, Portia de Rossi, to the hospital in March after drinking three “weed drinks” and taking over-the-counter sleep aids. DeGeneres made the admission that what she did was “probably not safe” to Jimmy Kimmel Tuesday during a marijuana-themed episode of his show. DeGeneres explained that she found de Rossi on the bathroom floor of their home, visibly in pain — but only after the daytime talk-show host had consumed three Cann drinks and the sleep aid melatonin. She then drove de Rossi to the hospital for an emergency...

    We all remember D-list comedian Kathy Griffin’s infamous photoshoot, in which she posed with a mock severed head of President Donald J.Trump, which might be labeled TDS – Trump Decapitation Syndrome. We remember as well rapper Snoop Dogg using a toy gun to shoot a clown resembling the president. “I have thought, an awful lot, about blowing up the White House,” Madonna said at a protest reading from a script written for her. And who can forget actor Johnny Depp asking at a film festival in England, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” Murdering Donald Trump...

    WASHINGTON — Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers turned the tables on House impeachment managers on Friday, trolling them with footage of Democrats over and over vowing to “fight” or “fight back” against Trump and Republicans to highlight their alleged “hypocrisy.” Impeachment managers used a series of CCTV videos of the Jan. 6 riot to show just how close pro-Trump marauders came to lawmakers and clips of Trump’s speeches to allege he had a history of encouraging violence. But the former president’s counsel came right back at them during their first day of arguments on Friday, accusing them of selectively quoting...

    Seeing as Trump has been impeached because his rhetoric allegedly incited the riot on the U.S. Capitol in January, it seems appropriate to point out instances where Democrats have used violent rhetoric and demand equal justice for it.

    Employees with “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” were axed Tuesday during mass layoffs at WarnerMedia. At least 17 of the show’s 80 digital platform employees were laid off Tuesday, Buzzfeed News reported. DeGeneres' show includes additional online content, known as Ellen Digital Ventures, where the layoffs were concentrated. “I obviously am as heartbroken as everybody, but we have to know that this is all for the good of EDV, and we need to keep this going because we have such a great team and we believe in y’all,” DeGeneres told employees in a video call, according to Buzzfeed News. “I know...

    Ellen DeGeneres ran her household like a military-style boot camp, barking orders, tormenting employees over tiny errors and 'taking pleasure' in firing people, a former staffer has told DailyMail.com. Life behind the scenes at the comedian's California mansion was every bit as traumatic as the alleged 'toxic culture' on her show, our insider claims in an exclusive interview. Workers were hit with an itemized daily list of trifling gripes from serving food in the wrong bowl, leaving the salt shaker in the wrong place or failing to ensure DeGeneres' latte was frothed the way she liked it.

    Ellen DeGeneres tried to get a server suspended for having chipped nail polish, the former waitress claims. Chris Farah, now a comedian and actress, said she was working as a server at Los Angeles vegan restaurant Real Food Daily in 2014 when she waited on Ellen and her wife at brunch. Farah, 35, said the meal went off without a hitch. But one week later, the chat show star emailed the restaurant owner complaining that Farah's nail polish was chipped, resulting in her bosses trying to suspend her for two weeks, the actress claimed.

    A former producer for The Ellen DeGeneres show claims the host was well aware of the toxic work environment outlined in a series of recent investigations by BuzzFeed News, and was to some extent even responsible for it. A veteran of various successful talk shows, Hedda Muskat was recruited by executive producer Andy Lassner back in 2003 when the show was still in development. Yet according to Muskat, DeGeneres was responsible for the toxic work environment involving racial discrimination and sexual misconduct that has now been alleged. “I had never seen this before,” Muskat told The Wrap. “I had never...

    Ellen DeGeneres may not be able to dance her way out of this one. America’s talk show sweetheart is under a fusillade of fire for the alleged “toxic” work environment of her beloved, 12-time-Emmy-winning daytime series. It’s getting so bad for her, one branding expert said a few days ago that the accusations against the show could bring an “apocalyptic ending to her TV career.” And what has she been accused of? Something as abusive, and illegal, as what toppled Bill Cosby or Harvey Weinstein? No. The producers of the show responsible for its day-to-day operation have been called out...

    Ellen DeGeneres is reportedly ready to call it quits on her show amid mounting pressure and a storm of negative publicity around toxic workplace allegations. According to the Daily Mail, the host, 62, has told executives at TelePictures and Warner Bros that she’s had enough and wants to walk away. “She feels she can’t go on and the only way to recover her personal brand from this is to shut down the show,” a source told the publication. “The truth is she knew what was going on, it’s her show. The buck stops with her. She can blame every executive...

    Former staffers who once worked on The Ellen DeGeneres Show believe the host knew that several of her senior showrunners and producers were alleged to have committed sexual misconduct against junior-level employees. Three dozen employees of the successful daytime talk show have alleged that senior executives who work behind the scenes at the show groped and kissed staffers, solicited one of them for oral sex, and were ‘handsy with women.' The bombshell allegations published by BuzzFeed News late on Thursday came hours after it was revealed that DeGeneres, the $50million-a-year queen of daytime television, apologized to staff over allegations the...

    Ellen DeGeneres' acclaimed talk show is reportedly under internal review following multiple allegations from former staffers about the talk show's workplace environment. According to reports from Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, both published Monday, The Ellen DeGeneres Show will undergo an internal investigation by WarnerMedia. Reps for The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Warner Bros. Television declined to comment when reached by PEOPLE. A rep for DeGeneres did not immediately return PEOPLE's request for comment. Telepictures and Warner Bros. TV executives sent a memo to Ellen Show staffers last week announcing they have engaged WarnerMedia’s employee relations group and a third...

    The Ellen DeGeneres Show has come under attack by several former employees who claim that the long-running daytime talk show is hiding a toxic work culture where people are mistreated and fired for taking medical leave and bereavement days. “That ‘be kind’ bullshit only happens when the cameras are on. It’s all for show,” one former employee told BuzzFeed News. “I know they give money to people and help them out, but it’s for show.” BuzzFeed News said it spoke to to one current and ten former employees on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, all of whom asked to remain anonymous,...

    Will 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' get canceled? All signs seem to point to the possibility as the long-running talk show continues to drop in ratings following scandalous rumors about the host, whom both guests, as well as employees on her show, have accused of being "mean." According to TVNewsCheck, the show has recently plummeted to an all-time low when it comes to ratings. As the 62-year-old talk show host refuses to address the rumors against her, the ratings of DeGeneres's show reportedly fell 14% as the latest Season 17 recorded a low viewership of 1.2, which put her show behind...
