Ellen DeGeneres will go on a standup comedy tour and there are whispers that there’s a bigger reason why she decided to go back to performing.

In its Nov. 21 issue, Globe claimed that DeGeneres wants to use her comedy tour as the perfect opportunity to out her enemies.

“Ellen wants to call out the bad guys and expose the real monsters in Hollywood. She’s really enjoying seeing these guys get what they deserve – and it takes the heat off of her. It’s great fodder for a stand-up routine,” the source said.

The source also said that DeGeneres just wants to regroup for a while before making her comeback official.

“Ellen’s hard at work writing and will tour an hour of comedy, hopefully starting next year, that will also be a streaming special. But her timing and her material are going to have to be pitch-perfect to put her back on top,” the source said.

However, it’s unclear where the claims that DeGeneres wants to out her enemies in Hollywood are coming from. After all, her standup comedy shows haven’t even been confirmed yet. So, it’s unclear if it will even push through in the first place.

DeGeneres previously said that she didn’t want to return to the stage and do standup comedy but her wife, Portia de Rossi encouraged her to do it. The Scandal alum said that DeGeneres is good at standup comedy and this is what made her famous in the first place.

Speaking of de Rossi, the former actress and DeGeneres made headlines amid claims that the comedian became clingier toward the former after she lost her hosting gig on The Ellen Show.

“Ellen is devoting all of her attention to her relationship with Portia right now, and that’s a recipe for disaster. Portia always said she wanted more time with Ellen. However, now she’s finding this nervous clinginess really stifling,” the source told National Enquirer.

However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. It’s not true that DeGeneres became clingier toward de Rossi just because she no longer hosts The Ellen Show.

Even if DeGeneres no longer hosts the program, she is doing other things. And it seems that she’s as busy as she once was, which proves that the claims aren’t accurate.
