Ellen DeGeneres’ Bosses are Investigating Her Treatment of Her Staff

In Ellen DeGeneres’ latest stand-up special, she talks about how her wife Portia de Rossi has been encouraging the talk show host to join her into retirement and that her brother Vance told her he thought she should keep doing her show. It’s looking like Portia might get her wish now that WarnerMedia has opened an investigation into her behavior on set and the allegedly toxic environment on it.

From Variety:

Executives from show producer Telepictures and distributor Warner Bros. Television sent a memo to staffers last week saying they have engaged WBTV-owner WarnerMedia’s employee relations group and a third party firm, who will interview current and former staffers about their experiences on set, said sources.

A Warner Bros. Television spokesperson declined to comment on the matter. A rep for “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” did not immediately respond to Variety‘s request for comment.

Maybe it’s time to pack it in, Ellen. I mean, ideally, before everyone hated you would have been the best time, but let’s be solution oriented and get the hell off of television before people hate you even more because it comes out that you made your assistant put a marmoset in his trousers or something.

An investigation announcement was the last thing we heard about House of Cards before they fired Kevin Spacey and everyone had to pretend the show was just as good without him, but did anyone even watch the last season of House of Cards? I mean, at least Ellen didn’t grab anyone’s dick and there won’t be a need to hastily conclude plot points since she does a talk show.
