Producers Finally Respond to Rumors of ‘Ellen’s


Producers Finally Respond to Rumors of ‘Ellen’s

Rumors are swirling that Ellen DeGeneres might have her last dance.

Insiders are whispering that the “Ellen” show could be canceled soon, amid reports of falling ratings and allegations of DeGeneres, 62, being “rude” to her staff, the Sun reports.

However, when reached by The Post for comment about the claims, DeGeneres’ production company reps said, “Telepictures can confirm it’s untrue.”

The syndicated talk show has been on the air since 2003. The comedian — who is married to “Arrested Development” star Portia de Rossi, 47 — hosts it with a jovial persona, always ready with a smile and a dance.

But recent behind-the-scenes reports have painted a different picture.

Most recently, DeGeneres courted controversy in April when crew members from her show spoke out about their treatment during the shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Variety, they had little communication or transparency about the status of their pay or continued employment. Like other talk show hosts such as Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah, DeGeneres has continued her show remotely — but with help from an outside company for tech as opposed to her crew members who spoke out.

Comedian Kevin T. Porter launched a Twitter thread that went viral on March 20, calling for anyone who encountered DeGeneres to respond with “insane” stories about “Ellen being mean.”

“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,” TV writer Ben Simeon wrote in one response.
