Amid the current investigation into The Ellen Show, talks are reportedly happening about who could be replacing the famous host if she were to step down, and no other than James Corden was name-dropped as a potential replacement.

And it seems the first steps to remove Ellen have been put into place...

The future of Ellen is hanging in the balance.

With all that's gone on, will she ever make a comeback?

Many have called for the star to be replaced.

The infamous host of The Ellen Show has been batting off accusation after accusation over the past few months.

But Ellen isn't keen to let go.

Whether she stays or not, it seems as though the show will never be the same.

She has been confirmed as the host of the next season.

But that doesn't mean back to normal for The Ellen Show.

As this breaking story proves.

As the show has been canceled on Australian TV today.

Her past employees certainly haven't held back.

For example...

Ellen clearly doesn't care too much for writer's strikes.

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.

More scandal regarding her treatment of staff...

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?

Her veganism has also ruffled a few feathers in the past.

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.

Her compassion for animals strikes again.

Though it's great that she cares so much about animals, her sensitivity to the matter doesn't bode well for her employees.

Ellen apparently hates her own fans.

And her own show! Who'd have thought it?

She also has no respect for her current staff.

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?

More and more allegations continued to arise from behind the scenes...

According to Buzzfeed News, 1 current employee, as well as 10 former ones have rallied around together to reveal their "truths" about the toxic culture behind the scenes of the show.

All the allegations were done anonymously...

But they revealed that it wasn't just Ellen that was the cause of the toxicity, there were also other bosses and managers that made their lives much more difficult on set.

A former employee told them that the "be kind" act was "bull****"

"That 'be kind' bullshit only happens when the cameras are on. It’s all for the show. I know they give money to people and help them out, but it’s for show."

One black woman who was part of the backstage team said she experienced "racist comments."

She was employed there for a total of eighteen months and in that time, she faced microaggressions and comments that made her feel uncomfortable.

She said that one of the top writer's said this to her:

"I'm sorry, I only know the names of the white people who work here." The employee also claimed a producer commented on her and another Black employees' hairstyles, allegedly stating: "Oh wow, you both have box braids; I hope we don’t get you confused." "Whenever I brought up an issue to my white male boss, he would bring up some random story about some random Black friend that he had and how they managed to get over stuff. He would use his Black friend as some way to say, 'I understand your struggle,' but it was all performative bullshit."

Amid an alleged internal investigation into the show...

Old claims from Ellen's guests have resurfaced.

They were reportedly highly coached before their on-screen interviews.

"Compliment Ellen, tell her what a big fan you are," they claimed they were told.

"These guests were already fans of Ellen, big fans, but to be told you have to flatter her was really weird."

"You shouldn’t have to be told … if you do look at past interviews, most of the guests always gush over Ellen - whether they’re members of the public or her close friends."

And now executive producer and head writer Kevin Leman has come under fire, too.

Horrendous reports of sexual harassment and assault have surfaced about Leman, pictured here alongside the Ellen team.

He reportedly inappropriately touched other staff members, alongside making many off-color jokes.

“It’s masked in sarcasm, but it’s not sarcasm," a former employee claimed.

Leman has since released a statement on the matter.

"While my job as head writer is to come up with jokes — and, during that process, we can occasionally push the envelope — I’m horrified that some of my attempts at humor may have caused offense. I have always aimed to treat everyone on the staff with kindness, inclusivity, and respect. In my whole time on the show, to my knowledge, I’ve never had a single HR or inter-personal complaint made about me, and I am devastated beyond belief that this kind of malicious and misleading article could be published."

But things look bad for the future of the show.

According to the Daily Mail, Ellen is now telling executives at Telepictures and Warner Bros that she has had enough and wants to walk away from the show.

An insider has spoken out.

"She feels she can't go on and the only way to recover her personal brand from this is to shut down the show.

"The truth is she knew what was going on, it's her show. The buck stops with her. She can blame every executive under the sun – but Ellen is ultimately the one to blame."

Amid all the accusations about her show, insiders stated that Ellen is ready to call it quits.

But that's not all ...

Even though Ellen has confirmed she'll be back for season 18 ...

As NBC has just confirmed that Ellen will be returning to film season 18 of her show.

But it won't be shown everywhere.

Australian network Channel 9 has confirmed they won't be airing the show.

Instead, viewers can tune in to this...

"We are resting Ellen repeats on Nine and have replaced with Desperate Housewives," a spokesperson has said.

Could this effect Ellen's future in the USA?
