Did we not see this coming? While the film and television industry had long called Ellen DeGeneres the ‘Queen of Nice,’ those who have worked with her behind the scenes say that she’s anything but friendly. In fact, multiple reports have said that Ellen treats her cast and crew with anything but respect and that she is someone who is notoriously rude behind the scenes.
According to the Daily Mail, there are some celebrities who are being considered as possible replacements for Ellen DeGeneres, seeing how her ship is sinking pretty fast. The show is currently being investigated for it’s “toxic work environment” following allegations made that Ellen is perhaps one of the most difficult people to work with in the entertainment industry. Here’s what you need to know.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show Update: Ellen Mocked As ‘The New Rosie O’Donnell’
One possible replacement might be actor Sean Hayes. A tipster told the site that they are looking for someone with a squeaky-clean image and someone who is genuinely nice and likeable. They also point out that Ellen is fast becoming ‘Rosie 2.0,’ referencing disgraced talk show host Rosie O’Donnell.
The source said, “Sean [Hayes] is currently the front runner as he has availability and he has proven successful when he has guest hosted Ellen in the past. It’s funny how history repeats itself. Many of us remember when Rosie O’Donnell was the queen of nice. Look how that turned out. She wasn’t! Ellen is Rosie 2.0. Everyone now knows that she is not what she sold herself as. She’s just mean, mean, mean.”
The tipster also added, “Our show in its current form won’t work. The Ellen production staff and Warner Bros’ executives lost faith in the three executive producers of the show and Ellen. This is a PR nightmare that you can’t recover from.”
