Ellen DeGeneres' employees delighted that the mean boss is being exposed, reveals source: 'They're loving it'
'They’re loving that the truth, an open secret for years in the industry, is finally receiving more interest'
Staff and crew of Ellen DeGeneres' TV talk show are believed to be 'delighted' that the 'toxic' atmosphere behind the scenes has finally been exposed. Those working on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' are believed to be supporting each other and are ecstatic that their "toxic work environment" has finally been made public for all to see. They are also feeling very good about the situation as it has created a space where people can come forward with their own thoughts and experiences while working on the show.
According to US Weekly, a source connected to the production shared: "They’ve been calling and texting each other about the story. They’re loving that the truth — which has been an open secret for years in the industry — is finally receiving more interest." Another source revealed, "Ellen is at the end of her rope. She thought this was all just sour grapes from a few haters. But it’s not a passing thing — the hits just keep coming." Recently, there have been many reports that Ellen has a very negative off-camera attitude with many people accusing her of being 'mean'.
Comedian Kevin T Porter asked his fans and followers to share their "most insane" stories about Ellen DeGeneres as a way to raise money for charity. Porter said he believes that she is "one of the meanest people" and he will donate money for every single "real" response that he receives. His post received many reactions and stories of people sharing their experiences. Comedian Chris Farah claimed that she had almost allegedly got fired from her job because of Ellen. She took to Twitter to share: "I worked @RealFoodDaily, served her & [Portia de Rossi] at brunch. She wrote a letter to the owner & complained about my chipped nail polish. Not that it was on her plate but just that it was on my hand. I had worked till closing the night before & this was next morn, almost got me fired."
A TV writer Benjamin Siemon had commented, "She has a ‘sensitive nose’ so everyone must chew gum from a bowl outside her office before talking to her, and if she thinks you smell that day you have to go home and shower. A new staff member was told every day she picks someone different to really hate. It's not your fault, just suck it up for the day and she'll be mean to someone else the next day. They didn't believe it but it ended up being entirely true," Siemon added. "[It] 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," Alison Freer revealed.
Ellen has currently been in lockdown along with her wife Portia de Rossi. "Ellen’s so grateful to have Portia in her life as a soulmate and a sounding board, but that doesn’t mean it’s been easy," the insider shared. However, reports say that Portia de Rossi is planning on filing for divorce from Ellen though nothing has been authenticated.
