Ellen DeGeneres, Kelly Clarkson Feud: Talk Show Hosts’ Staff Feuding Over Ratings, Celebrity Guests?
Ellen DeGeneres and Kelly Clarkson’s feud has, allegedly, extended to the staff at their respective talk shows.
In its Jan. 18 issue, Globe claimed that DeGeneres is furious over the success of The Kelly Clarkson Show.
While the ratings for the Ellen Show dropped 8 percent this season, the ratings for Clarkson’s talk show increased by 11 percent.
As such, the staff at the two shows couldn’t help but compete against each other.
A source claimed that some of DeGeneres’ staff have been applying for work over at Clarkson’s talk show.
And the comedian’s former staff has also been reveling over Clarkson’s friendly nature.
DeGeneres, on the other hand, is, allegedly, a mean girl and all the accusations against her from last summer are correct.
“Kelly is the new ‘it’ girl. Every big star is lining up to be on her show. At the same time, poor Ellen is ill, struggling with a lingering scandal and now in Kelly’s shadow,” the source said.
The insider also claimed that the staff at Ellen Show is upset because most of the celebrities they are inviting are rejecting their offers to appears on DeGeneres’ program.
But they have been told that these same celebrities are looking forward to appearing in The Kelly Clarkson Show.
Additionally, the tabloid also claimed that the comedian’s staff is upset with her for not following the safety protocols during the pandemic.
Last year, DeGeneres revealed that she tested positive for COVID-19. But even if this was the case, she still stepped out in public without a mask on after she recovered from the deadly illness.
This isn’t the first time that DeGeneres and Clarkson have been pitted against each other.
Just last week, National Enquirer claimed that DeGeneres has been stressing over Clarkson’s success that’s why she gained 27 pounds.
A source claimed that the funny woman thinks the world has turned against her, so she can’t help but feel depressed.
Since DeGeneres still hasn’t been filming new episodes for Ellen Show, she’s, allegedly, spending her days at home by bingeing on chips and fast food.
In July, Us Weekly claimed that the “queen of mean” is seething at her haters for spreading lies about her. And some of these haters are fans of Clarkson.
However, none of the tabloids were able to provide concrete proof that DeGeneres and Clarkson are feuding against each other.
In fact, shortly after Clarkson debuted her show, DeGeneres appeared on her program to surprise her.
