Ellen DeGeneres was not only difficult to work with at her daytime talk show, but apparently she was also a terror to her household staff at home, too. Here’s what you need to know.
According to Page Six, one unnamed source says that working at Ellen DeGeneres’ house was anything but a pleasant experience.
“My belief is that someone’s real personality comes out at home,” the unnamed ex-staffer reportedly said. “So after everything that has been said about her at work, you can imagine how terrible Ellen is going to be at home when her guard is down.”
Ellen DeGeneres Was A Terror To Her Household Staff Too
The source says that Ellen would get worked up over very minor things such as her coffee not being frothed to her liking, food being served in the wrong bowl or a worker leaving the salt shaker in the wrong spot. If that weren’t enough, Ellen also called out one of her personal chefs for using a guest bathroom in her home and getting upset at a maid for forgetting to put a piece of trash in a recycling bin.
Ellen would also “lay traps” by leaving matches in hard to find places around her house just to make sure that her housekeepers did clean every inch of her home.
“She treated you like you were nothing,” claimed the former staffer, according to the report, adding that DeGeneres would “yell” and had an “incredibly condescending tone.” “She was going to torture you and you were just going to sit there and listen to it because you were being paid.”
Ellen DeGeneres apparently “took pleasure” in berating or firing workers.
“I was told that she had a very high turnover and that I should stay under the radar as much as possible, avoid as much direct contact with Ellen as possible. Working there was described as being more like a boot camp,” the person said, adding, “Ellen was the worst person that I’ve ever met in my life.” So far Ellen DeGeneres herself has not made any comments about the allegations.
