Rumors about the true nature of the seemingly warm and bubbly Ellen DeGeneres have been circulating the internet for years but only now are people choosing to pay more attention to them.
A clip has resurfaced from 2008 showing Ellen “forcing” Mariah Carey to reveal her pregnancy in the most brutal way, and fans aren’t happy…
For years now, rumors about Ellen DeGeneres’ true personality have been rife.
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.
Which, in itself, should be a hint at her true personality and values.
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.
And, for many years now, a number of different former employees have been attempting to expose Ellen for who she truly is.
Her behavior is shocking, and a retro video from the early days of The Ellen Show with Mariah Carey have left fans outraged.
But firstly, let’s see what her former employees had to say…
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.
3. 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.
This Twitter user came forward with a damning story that, after a mildly autistic employee talked to and simply looked at the host too often, he was fired.
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.”
And this highly sensitive nose apparently means that people working around her have to take extra care with their smell… Including chewing gum from a bowl outside her office before speaking to her.
Some members of staff have even been asked to go home and shower. Now that’s just rude.
A staff member was once told that, while filming, Ellen will randomly “pick someone different to really hate” for no reason whatsoever.
And these poor employees simply have to suck it up and endure her wrath for the day.
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.
Apparently, if Ellen isn’t impressed with a monologue, she will simply throw it on the floor and refuse to work with it.
All because Joan’s comedy was “the wrong kind”.
And her own show! Who’d have thought it?
This social media user claimed that her friend was once working in a restaurant where Ellen was dining. She claims that Ellen attempted to get a waitress fired after she discovered she’d broken a nail? Weird.
In a recent, 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?
She began to score her e-commerce manager’s baby girl named Bo: “Well, she looks a little confused which is a very appropriate expression right now so that’s plus eight points. She doesn’t have any products from out Ellen Shop by her, so that’s minus two points.”
I guess that makes it okay then?
The next baby in the line up was her executive producer Derek’s grandson, named Javi: “Derek had that same look when we told him he had to figure out how to shoot this show via Zoom. The family resemblance is plus six points. I’m mad that I can’t pinch his little fat rolls while we’re in quarantine so that’s minus two points,” Ellen said.
It went to a dog, in particular, her associate producer’s “baby” called Gambler.
People just weren’t on board with this idea at all.
This user referred to it as “disturbing.”
“No kindness there.”
Mariah Carey was the guest of honor on The Ellen Show, and now that people are looking back on it, they are finding themselves feeling horrified over Ellen’s treatment of the singer.
To which the singer responds with, “I don’t discuss that!”
“Okay, you don’t have to answer that… but let’s toast with some champagne!” she says as she grabs a bottle of the alcoholic beverage along with 2 glasses.
“What?” Ellen asks in mock confusion, “I’m not gonna ask you if you’re pregnant.”
Then, unbelievably, Ellen forces a glass of champagne in Mariah’s hand and says “go ahead!” when the singer is clearly trying to dodge drinking the alcohol.
Even though the audience is laughing and cheering, the way in which Ellen is behaving towards her is nothing but manipulative and controlling.
And to make things worse, just weeks after her appearance on the show, she sadly suffered from a miscarriage.
The only time Mariah spoke about her experience on The Ellen Show was when she announced her pregnancy in 2010.
She said at the time, “Yes, we are pregnant, this is true! It’s been a long journey. It’s been tough, because I’ve been trying to hold on to a shred of privacy.”
“It kind of shook us both and took us into a place that was really dark and difficult. When that happened … I wasn’t able to even talk to anybody about it. That was not easy.”
And people are expressing their new opinions on the controversial talk-show host.
And it really goes to show her true colors.
