The Ellen DeGeneres Show might be coming to an end, but only if Ellen DeGeneres herself doesn’t react quick enough to save it, according to a reputation expert.
This comes after several reports indicated that Ellen’s crew and staff have complained multiple times about her show being a “toxic work environment.” There is now an investigation underway into those claims. Here’s what you need to know.
According to Fox News, Eric Schiffer, chairman of Reputation Management Consultants, believes that Ellen’s future is looking very bleak, and that’s putting it lightly. As a matter of fact, he believes that the results of the investigation could have “deadly consequences” for Ellen’s career and her brand.
For the longest time the daytime television talk show host prided herself for being the “nicest” person in the celebrity world.

“She could be perpetrating one of the biggest frauds in American celebrity history,” he suggested. “There are now serious investigators looking into the allegations and if the findings are as damning as what has been reported then you could watch the ‘Ellen Show’ go boom.” Schiffer also believes that Ellen’s own silence is hurting her more than it is helping her at the moment.
“I think Ellen has been arrogant in her entire approach in dealing with the allegations and it’s crazy for her not to accept responsibility for what is happening under her leadership,” he said.
“In Hollywood, the buck stops at the star’s name on the door, not at the producer level. It would be impossible for her to not know what [was] happening within her own staff.”
Executive producer Ed Glavin recently released a statement addressing all of the rumors about the Ellen DeGeneres show being a “toxic work environment.”
“We are truly heartbroken and sorry to learn that even one person in our production family has had a negative experience,” they said. “It’s not who we are and not who we strive to be, and not the mission Ellen has set for us.”
