By Lacey Rose. Executive Editor, Television. Ellen DeGeneres is ing off. The decision, which fell to DeGeneres, is said to have been several years in the making.
Timing her departure is something DeGeneres has openly wrestled with in the past. In a New York Times profileshe revealed that her actress wife, Portia de Rossi, had been encouraging her to move on from the shows-a-year gig, while her comedian brother, along with executives at Warner Bros. In the end, DeGeneres ed on for three more seasons but was clear with herself and her team that this contract — which would take her well beyond 3, shows, and a stunning 2, celebrity interviews — would be her last.
But this past year has not been without controversy. The latter, which DeGeneres says she learned about through the press, prompted an internal investigation and the dismissal of key executives. I take that very seriously. And I want to say I am so sorry to the people who were affected. Still, Darnell is steadfast in his commitment. To his relief, DeGeneres will remain a part of the Warner Bros. The studio has a considerable stake in her Ellen Digital Ventures, too, which is responsible for more than 60 original series, including digital hit Momsplaining With Kristen Bell. I was going to stop after season They were saying there was no way to for one.
And you never wavered? When we did our 3,th show, they showed that highlights montage and everybody was emotional. I just needed something to challenge me. I need something new to challenge me. Did anyone, outside of Darnell, try to convince you one way or another this time around? Obviously the producers. I care about animals. I thought that that was the only path. And then all of a sudden there was a talk show that took me on this year journey. He cares tremendously about me, first and foremost, and money and career second, which is very rare.
Would you consider returning to movies and sitcoms? A sitcom seems like a walk in the park compared to this, shows a year. There were pretty serious allegations waged last summer, and some changes were made to your show. It almost impacted the show. It was very hurtful to me. I mean, very. I became a comedian because I wanted to make people feel good.
It started when I was 13 years old when my parents got divorced, and I wanted to make my mother happy. My whole being is about making people happy. And with the talk show, all I cared about was spreading kindness and compassion, and everything I stand for was being attacked. So, it destroyed me, honestly. Then, on the heels of it, there are allegations of a toxic workplace and, unfortunately, I learned that through the press. It broke my heart when I learned that people here had anything other than a fantastic experience — that people were hurt in any way.
I just want people to trust and know that I am who I appear to be.
You mentioned that it almost impacted the show. What did you mean by that? Yeah, yeah, yeah. It was four solid months. And you have to understand, in that time, someone got into our house and robbed us and I lost four animals — three cats and a dog died. It was a tsunami. I know who I am. As you start to think about wrapping up, what will you miss the most and the least about this platform?
I will not miss hair and makeup every day. Listen, this is my family. I come to work and I laugh every single day. This all became bigger than I ever could have dreamed of. What do you want to ask her about ending this chapter and starting a new one?
First of all, she wears, like, Louis Vuitton heels. No, what you asked is what people are curious about. But when I can be my higher self and look [back] at it, I know all of that happened for me to grow. When I came out [in ] and was so publicly attacked during that time, it also really destroyed me, but then I got stronger and I learned and grew from it. At the same time, you have to learn from it, too. So, what have you learned? Well, you realize that every single encounter means something.
Was that what they meant? I remember years and years ago, my girlfriend at the time and I were taking our dog to be put down. And I did address it in my stand-up special.
God forbid someone cuts me off. No, they got to look at me dancing. May 12, am. Logo text. Related Stories. All Rights reserved.
