"The truth is I am that person that you see on TV", she continued, denying allegations that offstage her personality was a far cry from the sunny persona she has crafted onstage.

"Ellen clapped her hands together when she told them "If you love me, thank you, ' she clapped again when she dug into the "apology" and with the "sorry" bit over she began to use congratulatory, reward clapping, first for herself, for 'starting a new chapter" and then for the 270 people in her team, and of course her audience joined in the applause, just as they joined in the laughter when Ellen cracked jokes as she went along".

It was the first time the staple of daytime United States television publicly addressed the controversy surrounding her, after BuzzFeed News published a report over the summer detailing a culture of fear among her employees that included accusations of sexual misconduct, racism and intimidation from the show's management.

"I am a work in progress and I am especially working on that impatience thing".

Ellen DeGeneres is ruling the TRPs right now after a massive number of viewers tuned in to watch her comeback episode on Monday, wherein she talked about the ongoing toxic workplace scandal.

"When you're talking about people who have accused her leadership of the seriousness of sexual misconduct, I don't think it's appropriate to have jokes in the monologue", a former employee told the outlet.

The talk show host - in her classic humorous style - suggested that she take the onus because "Ellen" is a brand, and her name is everywhere - even on an underwear.

Sayers was named to the NFL's 75th Anniversary Team in 1994 at halfback and kick returner, the only player named at two positions. He attended KU and was born and raised in Chicago, as well as Lisle, Ill.

On her highly anticipated show, DeGeneres cleared the air regarding the toxic workplace claims she was embroiled in of late. "Did she really mean she intended to change her own behaviour, or was that just part of the gag?" "You're amusing. We need you".

Her monologue represented the primary time she had publicly addressed the reviews which emerged from a mid-July BuzzFeed Information investigation that surfaced allegations of racist conduct and intimidation on the present.

In the clip, the star also said that being known as the "be kind lady" sometimes puts her in a "tricky position".

DeGeneres also joked when addressing allegations that she doesn't practice what she preaches with her "be kind" mantra, implying that it was an issue of unfortunate branding. I get frustrated. I get impatient.
