The Ellen DeGeneres Show In Jeopardy: Ellen’s Career Comes To An End?

Variety and The Hollywood Reporter report a memo was emailed to employees of The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week, which stated Warner Bros. will be interviewing current and former staffers about their experience on the set of the syndicated talk show, per their sources who have knowledge of the email's contents. Many allegations are against Ellen herself.

"She could be perpetrating one of the biggest frauds in American celebrity history", he recommended.

However the presenter added that he didn't know if Ellen even realised what were team were doing "because I never got to talk to her".

Ellen DeGeneres has not made any comment on the claims of her meanness and claims of her current and former staffs' claims.

According to New York Post, The show's distributors, Warner Media, launched a probe into behind the scene situation at the studio after overwhelming complaints.

Schiffer wasn't shocked when news of an investigation broke due to the fact that "there have been too many assertions that are credible", he declared, including that " if the management group at WarnerMedia didn't [act], they would feel the rage of the general public".

One thing that Schiffer believes hurt DeGeneres is her silence on these reports.

"'She'll come in, she'll sit down, she'll talk to Richard and then Ellen will leave.' And I sort of said, 'Are you fair dinkum?"

At one point, Breen said he had to tell DeGeneres' staffers to be quiet as they kept laughing at all her jokes, which interfered with filming.

Executive manufacturers Ed Glavin, Andy Lassner and Mary Connelly issued a joint statement covering the claims.

"We are truly heartbroken and sorry to learn that even one person in our production family has had a negative experience", they stated.

Now Neil Breen, who worked as a producer when Ellen appeared on Australia's Today show, said she left staff on his programme "walking on eggshells" around her.

The source told the publication: "Ellen has gained a reputation as a friend to the stars, but A-listers would have to take great risks to publicly defend the show. We take all of this very seriously and we realize, as many in the world are learning, that we need to do better, are committed to do better, and we will do better".

Schiffer believes DeGeneres faces "a risky period in his career at a critical moment in the American experience".

Eric Schiffer concluded with some strong words. Any findings that reveal a toxic workplace "would be an apocalyptic ending to her TV career", he added.
