Ellen DeGeneres’ Way To Keep Audience Away Was Not 'Kind,' Ex-Employee Says
Ellen DeGeneres’ ‘be kind’ philosophy was washed up months back as allegations of toxic work environment on the sets of her popular talk show emerged.
"The Ellen DeGeneres Show" has been in the top layers in terms of TV popularity as far as talk shows are concerned, but this horribly unusual year has seen the wind blow in another direction – and the overall ratings, as well as the viewership of Ellen’s spectacular program, has been running downhill. While it was already not getting any better – fresh reports have come to view which disparage Ellen’s recently broken social image.
As per an ex-employee of the DeGeneres Show, during her Riff-Raff Room appearance, her staff members had to put off their work hats to pose as the audience to keep her fans away from her. The former assistant to the show also mentioned that the employees were forced to stand with their backs facing the wall so that fans couldn’t get too close to the host as she passed by the corridor.
The revelation maker also told that those who were the brains behind the toxic environment are still on the show contributing as though nothing ever happened. The show had to be overbooked – no seat could be left vacant and they had to be occupied with good looking people.
Prettier ones would get to perch on the front row while the uglier ones, if any, would be pushed to the back so that camera can’t capture them. In addition to that, women were also measured on the scale of beauty which the ex-employee says was totally unethical.
The former assistant said, “We were walking down a corridor chatting, then ahead of us, Ellen appeared with a security guard, walking straight towards us." As she saw her she stood still, stopped talking which was pretty unusual and incomprehensible.
As per the former DeGeneres show insider, she didn't even glance at them. The fact that they were not acknowledged gave an idea of how things happened at the show to her. This was one of the incidents that depicts Ellen wasn't always as she appeared on camera.
"The Ellen DeGeneres Show" has been on the radar of the Warner Bros for quite some time now – and if the ratings don’t go up soon there may be an unfortunate end to the show. Can Ellen steer it through the toughest period of the show?
