She is probably delighted to have an out from her contract. She is so over that show. Seventeen years of the same thing. 2700 episodes of fakeness. She is 62 and a very wealthy multi millionaire. Retirement and doing projects you want is probably a massive relief for her.

Ellen is ready to walk away and leave numerous staff members unemployed and disappoint her fans -anything to avoid acknowledging that she has become a corporate elitist and may, in fact, be legally responsible for the toxic workplace she created.

"One ex-employee said head writer and executive producer Kevin Leman asked him if he could give him a hand job or perform oral sex in a bathroom at a company party in 2013. Another said they separately saw Leman grab a production assistant’s penis. In May 2017, another former employee also said she saw Leman grope a production assistant in a car and kiss his neck. Nearly a dozen former employees, who range from longtime, senior-level employees to production assistants, said it was also common for Leman to make sexually explicit comments in the office, like pointing out male colleagues’ bulges in their crotches, or ask them questions like, “Are you a top or a bottom?” “It’s masked in sarcasm, but it’s not sarcasm,” a former employee said."

Was it known that Kevin Leman was gay? Seems a lot of the sexual misconduct claims are against him by male employees

Brad is talking about Jim Norton, who has talked trash about Ellen for years because he's jealous. Comics are very competitive and bitter nasty assholes.

Hollywood is like high school. Popularity and visibility matter. Once her talk show goes off the air, most of her A list "Friends" and connections will be gone too. Hollywood will only tolerate batshit behavior if you're making money for them. The second she walks away, it's over. The perks, everything. See Debra Winger, Faye Dunaway for reference.

The fact that not one big name celebrity is defending her is very telling.

Furthermore, this ground has been paved before. Have we all forgotten the Rosie-Tom Selleck incident?

A cursory perusal of the most angry and sanctimonious comments reveals contempt, jealousy, and schadenfreude.

Americans love building people up, then revelling in their take down like no other culture I'm aware of. It's as if it's a national sport.

Ellen is going to be just fine if the mob mentality does her show in, she'll probably have a much easier life without the stress and the detractors. It's comical how posters extrapolate, and fantasise that Portia shall leave her, and she'll fall into some alcoholic lesbian-drama despair.

Keep spinning your wheels.... It's interesting to read how truly sick some of you are. You must all be miserable in your own lives to be so hateful, and slandering.

This is the same pattern that plays out in Meghan Markle threads. Someone posts an opinion against the grain and they are immediately castigated as a PR drone. Why would you care so much about celebrity gossip? It's not that important. TV is entertainment and dispassionate consumption of pop entertainment is much healthier than freaking out about rumors about celebrities. If she's shown to have broken the law or killed someone I will start caring at this point. You'd think she was a convicted rapist like Bill Cosby the way some of you are carrying on about her.

Teams of lawyers must be working furiously to hammer out an exit deal. And I agree with a poster upthread that it's going to cost bigly to release Ellen from her contract. She will demand a gigantic payout. She's not going to just walk away empty handed. Also, it's possible that rumors of her quitting are being floated to give her more negotiating power - she's still the face of a hugely popular enterprise. Factions heavily invested in her "Queen of Nice" persona might be begging her not to leave.

From r214's link :

From a former staffer: She had a little bowl of mints by her door, and whenever you were going to talk to her, her rule was that you would have to pop a mint first or she wouldn’t speak to you.

That’s not all.

The other thing is that she is very sensitive to the way people smell. She would wrinkle her nose and ask staffers and crew members (who do a lot of physical labor) in front of everyone if they had showered that day. Could you even imagine if your boss did that to you? And in front of your colleagues? If she thought you smelled bad, she would tell you to go home and take a shower. She really embarrassed some people.

Was wrking on a show @ WB that was next to her stage. Was our showrunner’s 50th Bday. Caterer grilling steaks outside for special fancy lunch. Ellen sent someone over to demand they stop, as she doesn’t eat meat. She’s the worst.

My brother is a Wish kid. His wish was to be at the 12-days of Ellen, which was arranged. 1 month before they cancelled because, “Ellen refuses to interact with disabled people.” Crushed his heart.

Don’t count Ellen out.

Scooter Braun may be the only celebrity in her corner right now, but embattled talk show host Ellen DeGeneres is not going down without a fight. She’s also going back to work this month, according to an internal email from the show’s executive producers obtained by the Post.

Reports of her career death — stemming from recent scathing stories about the “toxic,” “sexist” and “racist” workplace culture at the “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” — have been greatly exaggerated, sources close to the 62-year-old star told the Post Saturday.

Despite her career collapsing around her, DeGeneres has no intention of walking away from her signature talk show or game show. She plans to report to work Aug. 24 for “Ellen’s Game of Games” and to the set of the “Ellen Show” when it premieres Sept. 9, according to the internal email.

“We know that these last few days have been a lot to take in and process for everyone,” read part of the email which was signed, “Love, the EPs.”

An insider at the show said, “She’s fighting to protect the show and what she stands for. She is very upset about what happened and determined to fix the problems. She takes full responsibility. But no way is she quitting the show. That’s total BS.”

But DeGeneres is “devastated” over how Hollywood has turned on her so fast. Celebrities including Brad Garrett and Lea Thompson have called out Ellen for her mean behavior. Some in her circle wonder if it all started with her being seen with former President George W. Bush at a Dallas Cowboys game last October.

Then write your Congress people to make sure they DO NOT extend that $600.00/week federal unemployment. Make these cunts sweat and rue the day they tried to stab you in the back.

Ellen used to have space for a row of wheelchair users in the very front row. She made a point of dancing with them. Some wheelchair users were frustrated with her seating design, because all wheelchair users had to sit in that front row and there were no additional chairs for the people they were with, so they were separated from their groups. While some liked the visibility of the front row, others would have preferred to sit with people they came with, rather than just other wheelchair users.

So I question the wish kid as she definitely had people with disabilities at her show. I am not sure if she ever had a quest with disabilities.

I picture Meghan McCain's nazi husband incessantly calling the network demanding the timeslot for his wife ....after all she has done for The View's ratings and SHE'S JOHN MCCAIN'S DAUGHTER.

Ferguson sold his mansion in Los Angeles and bought one in Glasgow, along with another place - a townhouse or something. He enrolled his 7 year old son there last year. I think he's permanently moved back home and intends to stay there.

Wonder why he got fed up? Letterman? Trump? (it shocked me when he had Jay Leno on his show after Dave retired. Bet he hates his guts)

There's a lot rumors about Corden too. That behind the scenes he's not the nicest guy in the world or the straightest.

Still no word from Aniston or Witherspoon on how their “friend” Ellen would never do this? LOL. I bet she has no real friends.

I predict some top level producers will be fired and better working conditions will be instituted, but Ellen will go on with the show.

I will enjoy the the utter disappointment of the ridiculous nellies here, creaming themselves at the thought of her demise.

by Anonymousreply 273Last Sunday at 1:44 PM

Ellen is too cowardly to go on with the show. She can't handle even small amounts of criticism. Her first response to this was deadly. Blaming everyone else. Lose their loyalty girl. They already hate working for you. This is just such a weird thing to explode like this. Roseanne was gone in 48 hours. It might take Ellen a week. There's nothing very substantive to the story all, but no one is coming to her defense. It's so fucking strange. Bitch must be hitting the tequila hard about now and frantically texting her friends with one eye closed. You ALL know how that happens.

Exactly, so why would anyone come to her defense?

Celebrity X: "Knowing Ellen well, there is no way that the people she has working for her are sexual predators and unfeeling monsters". Great.

It's different if she knew all this was going on and did nothing, but that hasn't been shown so far.

by Anonymousreply 275Last Sunday at 2:05 PM

If you were a celebrity would you go out on a limb for Ellen or her show when you don't really know much about the situation? Besides they all have these little rules themselves about no looking or talking.

Lol, James Corden is a bigger cunt than Ellen, if that is possible, it’s the second worse kept secret in Hollywood. He’s not getting the job. Whoever was leaking that was doing it as a joke.

Her brand is definitely done. Once her ratings start to tank, and they will, she’ll be dumped.

I can’t stand that fat fuck James Corden.

Ellen is often funny. While being mean. James Corden is kind of a bully. That outrageous amount of laughing at himself and the happy fat boy gay pandering? He practically assualts his guests with too much good humor and hyper displays of excitement. He's not Graham Norton - but bitch stole his show. Ellen's gig is directly stolen from Rosie. Except that Ellen has much worse musical taste. Bad taste in talent. And Rosie gave us Broadway. Ellen spends two segments promoting Camila Cabello lip synching and bearding! Because it's so important to be out of the closet. Who the fuck is so traumatized 25 years after they cancelled your sitcom when your character came out as gay? All gay people suffer PTSD, I know it myself. But Ellen has had nothing but success from the time she was in clubs. And everyone always *knew* she was a lesbian. But don't make us watch you kiss Laura Dern. Did y'all really think they're wouldn't be letters? Imagine what Will and Grace get. Why be such a baby about everything. I don't get where Ellen was ever a LGBT hero and I sure don't get it after she sold out to dancing for young white moms everyday while caping for all the worst players in show business. Fuck her. Ellen doesn't really care what anyone thinks. She loves the applause, the applause, the applause. I wonder what Tony thought of her? He always stuck me as a man who didn't love all of Ellen's white lady pandering. She replace him with TwiTch. Which I think means he likes to slam tina!

R33 I saw Brad in Atlantic City a few years ago, he was a dick to the audience (not in a Rickles kind of way) . The next day he was walking in the mall connected to Caesars that is shaped like a ship on the boardwalk. He was giving a death stare to anyone who looked at him. We could tell he was daring people to say anything to him, we didn't.

by Anonymousreply 290Yesterday at 5:01 PM

Given what Brad said about Ellen and Lea backing him up you would think one person would have called him a hypocrite, yet crickets.

On Portia's Instagram she claims she is a "former actress and now owner of General Public, an art curation and publishing company." Did she quit acting or the roles dried up.

by Anonymousreply 292Yesterday at 5:07 PM

Portia posted a “I stand with Ellen” picture on Instagram and NO celebrity reposted it. Face plant

by Anonymousreply 293Yesterday at 5:11 PM

Come on, everyone must have seen Portia's blue and white movement today on Twitter and Insta? She makes no long statement - because she's not capable - but she's trying to trend #IStandByEllen. This kind of pile on is insane. Are there any celebrities with a big career who stay away from social media? I don't think it's possible. Certainly Ellen is everywhere to promote her show. NOW, I would just turn off my phone, go to work and see if they fire me.

If Portia is having blue and white movements, she needs to see a gastroenterologist. That's not normal.

by Anonymousreply 295Yesterday at 5:36 PM

What else is Portia going to do? Disrupt her multi million dollar meal ticket? In the grand scheme of things they both mean nothing. Sure absolutely no one would care if they both just disappeared to an island never to be heard from again. But I can’t imagine having to climb in bed with that chiclet teeth, huge ears ugly bitch Ellen every night.
