It looks like Ellen DeGeneres reign’ as the ‘Queen of Nice’ and ultimately the ‘Queen of Daytime Television Talk Shows’ may soon be over. As a matter of fact, there’s a new report that suggests Ellen’s brand is “bleeding in gushes,” so to speak, after all of the bad press she’s been getting because of the reportedly toxic work environment behind the scenes at her daytime talk show. Here’s what you need to know.
Ellen might want people to think that she’s one of the kindest people in the film and television industry, but that’s not what her crew and co-workers believe. In fact, there has been one report after another that suggests Ellen doesn’t want you to speak to her unless you’re spoken too.
Treats her staff as if they were plebeians of a different class, or that they don’t deserve to be treated with the same respect as her guests. And now Ellen is hurting pretty badly because of it.
Ellen DeGeneres Is No Longer The Queen Of Nice
In an interview with Fox News, Eric Schiffer, chairman of Reputation Management Consultants, weighed in on the matter and believes that Ellen has a lot of work ahead of her, should she want to repair her image in the future.
“Authenticity is king with celebrity brands and these continued leaks are lacerating her credibility and mangling her capacity to continue to try to be positioned at a high moral ground,” Schiffer said, adding, “It’s celebrity brand suicide.”
Show executives released a statement to Buzzfeed earlier this summer, shifting the blame from Ellen DeGeneres on to themselves.
“For the record, the day to day responsibility of the Ellen show is completely on us. We take all of this very seriously and we realize, as many in the world are learning, that we need to do better, are committed to do better, and we will do better,” the statement reads in part.
