Ellen DeGeneres is surprised at the stories that she's not as nice as she appears on TV. Us Weekly reports that she thought the allegations were "just sour grapes from a few haters".
I told you earlier this week on the Show Biz Buzz that the afternoon talk show host is taking heat from fans – and even her own staff – for not being very nice. Rumors about “mean Ellen” date back to at least April, when popular You Tuber Nikkie de Jager called her out for being “cold and distant” when she appeared on the show.
Ellen was complaining about being stuck in her multi million dollar mansion, and that doesn't sit well with some people. She says it's like jail! She's also been called out for allegedly leaving her crew in the dark about the state of their jobs amid coronavirus, and in fact some in her crew are calling her behavior 'cold.'
Is Ellen at the end of her rope?
One 'insider' says she thought this was all just sour grapes from a few haters, but it’s not going away.
She’s been leaning on her wife Portia de Rossi and grateful to have Portia and close friends to lean on.
How long will it last for Ellen? With the way the news cycle is these days... here and gone.. it may ease up for Ellen soon. Hopefully, she' being 'nicer', and here's some good news for the talker...her ratings don’t seem to be affected by the controversy. Enjoy that mansion, Ellen!
