Ellen Degeneres is leaving Hollywood: 'I'm done'

Ellen DeGeneres says she is quitting Hollywood after her stand-up tour ends.

“This is the last time you’re going to see me. After my Netflix special, I’m done.”

Ellen DeGeneres admits “I can be demanding and impatient and tough. I am a strong woman. I am many things, but I am not mean.”

[quote] Demanding, tough and impatient is sort of the definition of mean.

At the risk of being called “mean” myself, R2, I will differ with you and point out that this is where the Google machine can be your friend.

It led me to dictionary.com which has a few definitions for the adjective “mean”:

— offensive, selfish, or unaccommodating

— small-minded or ignoble

— nasty, malicious

I can’t believe I’m defending Ellen, because I think she’s fallen so far from her heights, but probably because her addle-brained Frauen base interpreted her not being “as nice as (they) thought she was” to her being “mean”. And she hasn’t.

She’s like Miranda Priestly in a way, she doesnt necessarily deserve sympathy, but rather empathy and a healthy dose of respect.

I can understand her recent comments about “I go bye-bye” or WTF, but it does come off as tone deaf.

A lesbian friend of mine who's a huge Ellen fan went to her show here in Northern California a couple of weeks ago and said she was disappointed in how Ellen came across.

While she said Ellen still had some very funny monologues, she thought she came across as defensive and cold when she talked about being "cancelled." She didn't exactly deny being a bitch, my friend said, but tried to justify it using the "I'm a strong, intelligent woman" tired talking points.

I never watched the show because I thought it was saccharine and phony, and I cringed at her dancing. My eyes were really opened when I saw her put people through humiliating stunts. She's mean.

I think she stopped being funny years ago. But almost all incredibly successful comedians lose their relatability so that's not unique.

This is like a failing restaurant's owner threatening not to re-open. Who cares?

by Anonymousreply 19July 10, 2024 5:04 PM

R8 is right. Ellen is a petty, nasty and arrogant bitch who enjoyed bullying anyone who showed signs of vulnerability while on her show, and will never admit to herself or others that she eventually got her comeuppance because she made the mistake of antagonizing the wrong people (i.e., those who are not powerless). She's a horrible narcissist and instead of being grateful for the fact that she's become fabulously rich by promoting utter and complete banality on TV, she chooses to be bitter about not being given more recognition for her meagre talent.

Personally, she can go and fuck herself. It's unbelievable how utterly lacking in self-awareness and humility she is, which is unforgivable for someone with so very little talent.

She’s really never been called out for the things she did to male celebrities on the show that always turned me off.

Showing nude photos of Justin Bieber when he was on vacation while he was sitting across the chair in front of the audience. He was clearly uncomfortable.

I remember there was a moment with Alex Pettyfer where she pressured him to take him shirt off and do push ups for a charity and she’d give him an Ellen shirt. He was super uncomfortable but did it and when he went to take the shirt from her, she pulled it away from him.

She is a Cluster B-disordered malignant narcissist. She is filled with hate and enjoys humiliating and hurting other people for pleasure as she projects her hideous personal demons on to others to ease her self loathing.

What she deserves is to be clocked in the jaw by someone with the station and balls to do it. That always humbles these sick monsters…for awhile.

She will never change and will live her life out in misery.

Her problem (just like Rosie O'Donnell) is likely all the male hormones she has surging through her body. I believe it causes many butch lesbians to end up as rage-o-holics, mad at the world. That coupled with their feelings of lifelong mistreatment by straights. The one main thing that gives them joy is mistreating others, especially those who have what they so desire, a penis.

David Letterman made money and then exited when he didn't. All the stories about Ellen came to the forefront because she tried to play hardball with the studio. They, in turn, stopped making any effort to kill any negative stories about Ellen as they had done previously. Her hubris and her greed killed her career. She should have just walked or accepted a lower salary. The stories would have still eventually trickled out, as they did with Letterman, but not at the "canceled" level she now inhabits. She probably could have continued doing game shows and whatnot for quite some time.

So he'd be a complete asshole, too. And ?

Sylvester Stallone was called out publicly earlier this year, for humiliating the actors on the set of his show 'Tulsa King' and using derogatory comments about their looks, and size. Stallone was allegedly observed calling certain background actors "ugly," "tub of lard" and "fat guy with a cane." Stallone also suggested that the production cast "pretty young girls to be around me" instead. Atlanta based casting agency Rose Locke & CL Casting, who had been responsible for hiring extras, resigned from the production soon after. Thomas Mooneyham, a background actor on the series, stated that he believed the comments were about him after he and another extra were replaced with younger people.

Was he cancelled ? Hell, no.

Was he shunned by Hollywood, and decide to leave ? Nope.

Did Stallone face any consequences ? An 'internal' investigtion by Paramount Studios which was never made public. Stallone never publicly commented on the allegations.

Was he rewarded by Paramount with another season of his show, which began filming a few months ago and wraps in a couple of weeks ? Hell, yes.

This wasn't a one-off for Stallone; he was exhibiting this asshole behavior throughout the season. It got so bad that the casting agency, Rose Locke & CL Casting. which was contracted to fill each episode with 'background actors' left the show. That's how bad it was for their employees and nothing was being done about, nor were their complaints taken seriously. Paramount pacified them with their 'internal investigation'. They protected their star rather than do the right thing for these extras.

That is why they went public with their complaints. Rose Locke & CL Casting stood with them and left the show. Paramount still didn't care - they rewarded Stallone (who has been in the business much longer than Ellen) with a second season of his television show.

Let's face it - if it were a female star doing what Stallone did throughout production, the show would be canceled and the female would be canceled immediately.

Her show was OK, but I didn't like how she would have on hot guys as a gimmick and pretend to drool over them along with her straight female audience. You're a lesbian, bitch. Yeah, talking about tits and vag would turn your viewers off, but that isnt a reason to do that straight shit. Just omit it.

I like Ellen but I never liked her talk show. I like hosts who will asks the juicy questions, basically ones who are messy like Wendy lol.

r124 I'm a lesbian but even I can appreciate some attractive men. I don't want to fuck them, but there's nothing wrong or ungay about what she did at all. It's actually funny coming from lesbians because we're all, "Man, you're hot but too bad about that dick thing."

Sorry, Ellen: no one is a reasonable judge by themselves as to whether or not they are mean.

That's for others to decide: and others have spoken loud and clear about your character. You're mean.

I wonder if Ellen has taken advice from Rosie O'Donnell, who also was called "The Queen of Nice," and then also was canceled (although less dramatically) when she was revealed to be not so nice of a person.

What is it about these lesbian comics who think they have to be thought of as incredibly nice (even when they're not) if they're hosting a daytime talk show? is it because Dinah Shore was such a lesbian icon?

R129 Rosie more so had problems in her interpersonal life not being a cunt to staff especially underlings. Rosie never punched down. Even on The View. The only major clashes she had was with that freeper producer and Elizabeth. I think Rosie was just going thru stuff as we all do in life; she’s not really mean. And Rosie always sticks up for bullied people.

Whoopi clashed with Walters the first time she was on 'The View', and then she clashed with Goldberg and Nicole Wallace the second time she joined the show. It was not just with Bill Geddie and Elisabeth.

Paula Poundstone wasn’t this offensive or obnoxious.

Lea DeLaria is ten times this foul, but remains beloved.

Sandra Bernhardt sings to an empty theater most nights, but she keeps coming back for more.

Ellen is in a cuntery class of her own.

I have to admit, I loved her as Dory (yes, I liked some Disney movies after watching them with relatives). I even stood in line once when I Iived in Hell-LA on the chance I might get to sit in her audience in the very early days (would have been 2004-2005). When you live that close to Studio City, sometimes you do shit like that.

But I lost the love for her long before the rumors made the rounds...probably because I was Hollywood adjacent, and heard stuff that made me pause and lose interest.

Too bad. I really loved Finding Nemo and she had a spectacular comeback with it.

R129, Rosie walked away from her show because she was tired of it and she had 100 million dollars in the bank. Your account is basically fan fiction from someone who hates masculine lesbians.

I don't trust her. She has jug ears. A lot of the convicts in the "Mama's mussy" threads have jug ears.

When "Ellen" first debuted I thought it was fun and refreshing. That's like 20 yrs ago and I prob haven't watched since then except for clips on social media. Has there ever been a talk show host that wasn't a massive cunt? And they are usually quite antisocial when not working (Carson, Letterman, etc.)

I've never heard of Lea Delaria being an asshole to work with.

R148 She's a delight to work with, but her humor is very much "Not Mainstream." The suits would never give a daytime network talk show to a self-proclaimed "BIIIIIIG DYKE!"

Well, don't be expecting a going away party or anyone to beg you to stay. If there are multiple reports about your alleged bitchiness, chances are YOU ARE THE PROBLEM, not everyone else.

Why is Ellen so mean and nasty? She's had an amazing career, is worth a bloody fortune, and lives a lurious lifestyle. Most people would be thrilled with that kind of a life.

R153 I remember seeing an Intimate Portrait or some such guff about her years ago. Longtime friends of hers told the story of how her first serious girlfriend died in an accident, and how it utterly warped Ellen's personality after that.

But stardom and plastic surgery turns a lot of people into cunts.
