What did Ellen DeGeneres do? Why she left The Ellen Show.
“It’s my name on the show, so clearly it affects me and I have to be the one to stand up and say, ‘This cannot be tolerated.’ But I wish someone would come up to me and say, “Hey, there’s something going on that you should know about.” “
She added, “I have to say if no one else said it was really interesting because I’m a woman, and it felt very misogynistic to me.”
Ellen DeGeneres’ awkward interview with Oprah Winfrey.
While Savannah Guthrie’s interview with DeGeneres touched on the toxic allegations in the workplace, Oprah Winfrey’s interview with the talk show host largely ignored the allegations.
But while Winfrey’s interview was a little friendlier, there was a particularly awkward moment.
At one point during the interview, Winfrey opened up about the guilt she felt about leaving her own talk show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, in 2011.
“When you have a great staff like you, and like me, that staff becomes your family. These are your tribe; these are your people. You wouldn’t be who you are without these people doing the job a lot of people don’t recognize is happening behind the scenes, “she began.
“You often don’t think, as I often didn’t think, when you look at people: auto insurance, mortgages, paid college education … for all of that staff, they’ve built their financial lives. , their family life, based on this show. For me, it was hard too, “she added.
As Winfrey spoke, DeGeneres awkwardly looked out of the camera and fidgeted, until Winfrey changed the subject.
