That Ellen DeGeneres is a classy lady.

Saw today's show with the First Lady, the kids from the school she supports and Daniel Radcliff.

She would make an excellent Ambassador to some troubled nation.

And, she looks great for 52.

That's just when she's on camera, OP. I'm not saying how or where, but I've heard her berate an underling.

Also, I don't know that she looks great for her age. She definitely looks her age, though and her wardrobe choices only highlight her age.

Much plastic surgery, and she is looking good. Before he started kissing her ass, Howard Stern recounted the ways he had been told she mistreated her staff, including asking them to write jokes (all-nighters) for awards shows and not thanking them, berating staff, basically being the opposite, real world version of the (predictably) fake tv version. Her extremely manipulative 'pet episode' with the adoption agency was a peek into how spoiled, unwavering, irrational celebrities behave when faced with common sense rulings that are in place to protect animals, not the whims of 'talent-lite' public figures/comedy simulators.

I'm not an Ellen fan or for that matter a foe. But, I don't think she looks all that hot for 52. Ellen was on Leno the other night and she looked like an old lady. Granted, the tonight show has cut all unnecessary expenses so they may not have makeup lady on staff anymore.

She has always been overly emotional and neurotic. When she gave interviews for her first sitcom, pre-coming-out, she was crying. The network was forcing her to stay in. It ws important for her to come out on TV. I'm glad she eventually did, but she's a bit of a loose cannon and megalomaniac.

Impossible to imagine anyone succeeding in television without being controlling and paranoid.

Men exhibiting such behavior are considered 'driven' or 'exacting', and possibly 'assholic'. Yet a woman is 'insecure', 'paranoid' and 'emotional'.

I interviewed for a job (personal assistant/house) for her & Portia once. Everybody I knew BEGGED me to not even go to the interview. I could not ffind ONE person in LA who had anything nice to say about her. The stories keep coming & supposedly Portia is an unhappy kept woman. At least she has her animals.

During the writers' strike, someone who had worked on the Ellen show (don't know the capacity) put up a blog that others contributed to, that detailed Ellen's abusive episodes and general assholery (e.g. cheap with the Christmas bonus). It was linked here.

by Anonymousreply 6609/22/2012

from an old gossiplist mailing (culled from datalounge)....

Ellen Revealed

This is more dirt we received on Ellen.

i think ellen is probably nice to fans, but incredibly vile to the people who work for her. remember a former writer's assistant posted this during the strike? --- I don't know how Ellen treats her current writers, but I can tell you about how she treated the previous batch: Like shit.

People tend to be disappointed when I answer the " What was Ellen really like?" question by suggesting she must be a very talented actress to convince America she's nice. We'd watch her in rehearsals, smiling and winning us over with her charm and comic timing. Then the director would yell cut, her face would fall, and she'd level a glare at the writers. "Why do you keep writing these unfunny jokes?" she'd hiss. [...]

We saw her through her first time hosting the Emmies, and many of our writers penned that material. They wrote jokes for three versions of the show after the telecast kept getting postponed because of 9/11. Finally, it aired (opposite Game 7 of the World Series, no less) and Ellen did a great job with great material. The next day, staff and crew greeted her with a hearty round of applause. Did she thank the writers for their jokes, or at least their hard work? Here's what I remember her saying: "I felt like I really reasserted myself in the industry last night."

Later I heard she blamed the show's cancellation on 9/11 delaying the premiere.

A few years ago, I was told this story by a friend. who had just had lunch with a friend who used to work at the ellen degeneres show until a few years ago. friend said that ellen is a complete asshole and the opposite of her public image. apparently this is public knowledge but whatever.

one of her stories... when the writers strike happened, ellen's head writer (at the time) told ellen she should take some time off to support the writers, it would look bad if she didn't, etc. ellen said absolutely not. so the writers strike happens, ellen gets bad press for continuing on air. when the strike ends and the writers come back to work, ellen calls in the head writer and immediately fires her for "not warning her about the bad press she would get if she kept shooting the show during the strike." not only does she fire this person (who apparently was one of her closest friends for many years and regularly appeared on the show), she strips away all responsibilities of the head writer's fiance, who also worked at the show. systematically went after the fiance until that person is basically forced to quit as well.

friend said ellen regularly throws tantrums behind the scenes in which she cries and carries on like a crazy bitch. also said she is incredibly paranoid to the point of it being frightening.

I recall the story about the head writer. Another of the stories had Ellen either forgetting or not really caring to give her writers Christmas bonuses. When reminded, she produced some Amex gift cards of rather small demonminations. Didn't cost her a cent.

I can't find the blog. It was rather inflammatory even if correct, so whoever did it probably took it down for career reasons. Part of it seems preserved in R67's post. D-Listed mentioned some of it.

I know a person who worked on Ellen's show at one time, and she's a mean bitch in private. She's had a ton of face work done and it takes a lot of work in the makeup room to cover some of it up - apparently there is some scar tissue. Also, she's a drunk. She apparently drinks at home at night and frequently shows up hungover to work. My friend told me that Ellen is nothing like her public image - she's a capital "B" Bitch behind the scenes.

This is all first-hand from my friend, but I know many of you won't believe it. Whatever, I don't care.

R98 I just stopped watching Ellen about 19 months ago. Nothing in particular pushed me to stop except her musical guests were sometimes not great.

Got tired of her 'game show' gig where people were selected from the audience to play this Question and Answer game or be dunked in a tub of water. (You've seen one dunk, you've seen them all).

Got tired of the cash and car give-aways to people struggling for whatever reasons.

Got tired of her musical child prodigy segments.

The interviews with 'movie stars' were just shameless plugs foe current film, book or product.

She doesn't seem to be a particularly good interviewer. I know she's not Charlie Rose but seeing Johnny Depp, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Aniston do the standard 'edgy' interview became pretty stale fast.

Got tired of her "Who's in my Bushes" set.
