Ellen DeGeneres is Not Enjoying Reaping What She Spent Her Career Sowing

Ellen DeGeneres thought that the stories about her being a huge asshole to everyone around her we’re just going to blow over and Us Magazine is reporting she doesn’t know what to do now that it isn’t actually blowing over.

“Ellen is at the end of her rope,” a source reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly. “She thought this was all just sour grapes from a few haters. But it’s not a passing thing — the hits just keep coming.”

It turns out that when you treat hundreds of people like they’re beneath you, you get more than a few haters.

Ellen’s reaction here actually reminds me of a viral tweet from last year.

But really, things are not too bad for her in her giant mansion with her hot, younger wife.

“Ellen’s so grateful to have Portia in her life as a soulmate and a sounding board, but that doesn’t mean it’s been easy,” a second source tells Us. “Their home life is strained right now. … Her real friends never ask her to be funny or tell jokes. They accept her as is.”

And at the end of the day, DeGeneres’ ratings continue to soar, which indicates that the backlash has not affected her show.

“Ellen’s been in our homes for so long, it’ll take a lot more than a bodyguard and a blogger to change how people feel about her,” the second insider notes. “Her best response is just being happy Ellen on the show every day.”

Honestly, she probably should have taken her wife’s advice to retire, and it’s not too late. Her show’s ratings aren’t down, but who knows what will happen when the pandemic ends and there are other shows to watch. Go out on top before something really bad comes out. Harvey Weinstein thought he was just going to ride out #metoo and go back to making movies, and he ended up being the only person it took down before they ended it for Joe Biden. Not that Ellen is as bad as Weinstein, but that public opinion can turn on a dime.
