Ellen DeGeneres is Returning to Her Show & Plans to Address Scandal
The Ellen DeGeneres Show will be returning to television on September 21. According to a new statement by Ellen herself, she will be addressing the recent workplace harassment scandal.
“I can’t wait to get back to work and back to our studio. And, yes, we’re gonna talk about it,” she said in a statement.
The announcement of the show’s return also boasted upcoming A-list guests including Tiffany Haddish, Kerry Washington, Alec Baldwin, Chrissy Teigen, Chris Rock, Amy Schumer, Adam Sandler, and Orlando Bloom.
Of course, Ellen has been under fire since it was revealed in a Twitter thread that the talk show host was not as nice to her staff as she seems.
Then in July, dozens of former staff members alleged incidents of sexual misconduct, harassment, and assault from top executives on the show.
Amid WarnerMedia’s ongoing investigation into the claims, three senior producers were axed and employee perks have been increased.
Wow. Well, we’re eager to see what she has to say. Aren’t you?
