It's the end of an era. It's time to say goodbye! The LGBTQ leader will sit with Oprah Winfrey on May 13th to reveal more details. 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' started in September 2003 and continued to be one of the best rated daytime shows in the history of television. Read more about it below.
"When you're a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged -- and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it's just not a challenge anymore,"
Over the last two years, her show was the target of critics after the workplace scandal leaked to the press. Toxic work environment, 'diva' status of Ellen and embarrassing situations were amongst the top accusations. 250 employees currently work on her show and an anonymous source told us that things really changed:
It's really awesome that these issues are being finally discussed. The atmosphere is changing, and we're happy to be back at the studio.
Ellen's show continued, but it definitely took a toll on her. With a fortune of $84 million, money is certainly not an issue. She is just too old (63 years old) to manage that type of stress:
"If I was quitting the show because of that, I wouldn't have come back this season. So, it's not why I'm stopping but it was hard because I was sitting at home, it was summer, and I see a story that people have to chew gum before they talk to me and I'm like, 'Okay, this is hilarious.' Then I see another story of some other ridiculous thing and then it just didn't stop. And I wasn't working, so I had no platform, and I didn't want to address it on [Twitter] and I thought if I just don't address it, it's going to go away because it was all so stupid,
She certainly will think about what her next steps are going to be and we are certain that we will be seeing more of the TV host that forged generations of young Americans that managed to see or to attend her live show in Los Angeles. She will definitely miss her staff, after 19 years some of them are her best friends:
They've become my best friends,I come to work and I laugh every single day."
The question is if they will miss her as well? We certainly will do! And you?
