Ellen DeGeneres Allegedly Set ‘Traps’ For Household Staff

At this point, I feel like Ellen DeGeneres’ continued insistence that she’s not a horrible monster to everyone she considers beneath her is just insulting to our intelligence. For me, the things that sum it up is the story of someone saying hello as they walked past her and her wife Portia only for Ellen to respond “Who the hell do you think you are?” That’s the attitude of someone with an uncontrollable ego.

Ellen has repeatedly been accused of mistreating her staff, which she’s tried to push off onto her producers, but now The Daily Mail is reporting her household staff is sharing all sorts of horror stories about working for her.

Workers were hit with an itemized daily list of trifling gripes from serving food in the wrong bowl, leaving the salt shaker in the wrong place or failing to ensure DeGeneres’ latte was frothed the way she liked it.

Nitpicking DeGeneres would even ‘lay traps’ before she left for work, strategically leaning matchsticks behind cupboard doors and cushions to test if cleaners were dusting every square inch of her sprawling residence.

Sounds like a real joy to work for. It’s like your dad rigging the drawer he keeps his 70s porno in.

‘My belief is that someone’s real personality comes out at home,’ the former employee told

‘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.

‘Sometimes she would yell at us but it was more about the incredibly condescending tone she would use. She treated you like you were nothing.

‘She was going to torture you and you were just going to sit there and listen to it because you were being paid.

‘Ellen was the worst person that I’ve ever met in my life. She takes pleasure in firing people.’

But, you know, the mistreatment of her staff at work was just because other people weren’t being as nice as she was. She just didn’t realize, you see, that people were being mean on her behalf.
