Ellen DeGeneres hasn’t had the best of years, what with all the sinister rumors and stories from people who have met her finally coming to light. And now, news has emerged that her home has been broken into…
And now, amid several accusations about the star, the home she shares with her wife, Portia De Rossi, has been burglarized.
The infamous host of The Ellen Show has been batting off accusation after accusation… But now she might have met her match after a group of her former employees rally around together to reveal the “truth” about Ellen Degeneres.
Though she has built her on-screen persona around being outspoken against injustice and generous to the needy, many people have claimed that, in real life, she is quite the opposite.
Which is certainly a far cry from the relatable and humble TV host we all know and love… Or we thought we knew and loved.
Cracks have certainly begun to show, and rumors of the somewhat nastier personality behind the famous smiling blonde-haired, blue-eyed face have been intensifying.
Now, more than ever before, people are starting to turn against the star as detrimental stories continue to resurface.
This Twitter user came forward with the story about Ellen’s head writer, Karen Kilgariff.
Karen was under Ellen’s employment for 5 years until she took part in a writer’s strike. Boom. Fired.
And a word was never exchanged between the pair again.
This woman claims that her friend used to work as a writer on the show and, in the whole 2 years of her employment, Ellen didn’t greet her once.
In fact, none of the staff were allowed to speak to the star of the show. Apparently.
Staff weren’t even allowed in the same room as her.
Wow, we really aren’t worthy, are we?
For a colleague’s birthday, Twitter user Alison Freer was celebrating with a BBQ outside of the Warner Bros studios where The Ellen Show is filmed.
However, Ellen was quick to shut down all the festivities by sending someone over to put a stop to the celebration, all because she doesn’t eat meat. Not cool, Ellen.
Ellen has notoriously sucked up to the rich and famous for years, and apparently she wants to keep them all for herself.
When Russell Brand wandered into the employee break area to chat with the crew, Ellen apparently got quite irritated and told him that he “doesn’t have to interact with these people.”
I’m sorry, but there isn’t enough money in the world that would ever encourage me to do that.
Thank you, next.
Though it’s great that she cares so much about animals, her sensitivity to the matter doesn’t bode well for her employees.
And her own show! Who’d have thought it?
In a recent, rather weird segment on her talk show, the sixty-two-year-old rated her staff’s babies after telling us “my staff [have] a lot of beautiful additions to their families. Clearly they had to be rated.”
Did they Ellen? Did they really?
And, as a result, her ratings have taken a huge blow.
With previous seasons of the show raking in an average of 4.5 million viewers.
The Ellen Show had its season-low rating of around 1.5.
So much so that, at one point in time, fans were convinced that the worst had happened, but the producers ended up confirming that the show is not going to be axed… Yet.
So, it’s safe to say that things aren’t looking too good.
But this week, things got a whole lot worse for the star.
Ellen bought the 8,188-square-foot, Balinese-style home for a staggering $27 million last year.
With cops believing their residence was “targeted due to the victim’s celebrity status.”
But cops say some of the stolen items include high-value jewelry and watches.
The Sheriff’s Office has said it’s working with other law enforcement agencies, as part of an extensive investigation, to see if this break-in is connected to other recent a-lister home burglaries.
Including to avoid social media posts about being on vacation and leaving the lights and TV on while away.
