Ellen DeGeneres’ Possible Replacement Is Revealed Amidst Reports That She’s Quitting

Over the past few days, reports have circulated that daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres wants to quit her job as host of her show. Numerous reports about both racial and sexual misconduct on set have come to light. Now, her rumored replacement has been revealed.

DeGeneres’ Potential Replacement Is Revealed

The Sun reported that late night television host James Corden may be replacing DeGeneres after she was accused by current and former employees of turning a blind eye to racism and sexual misconduct on her set.

Sources with NBC said that Corden was seen as “the long term successor” to DeGeneres even before she found herself embroiled in these scandals.

One insider said that NBC Entertainment Chairman Paul Telegdy is a “huge fan of James” and has him “‘high on his wanted list for talent and a long term replacement for Ellen.”

“This issue has fast tracked everything and made everyone look at the future today,” the source explained. “James Corden was being eyed for Ellen’s job in the long term before any of this came to light. Now this shocking new development places a spotlight on the next step.”

“James and his team have been trailblazers in modern TV, taking the once considered graveyard chat show slot into a cutting edge format with huge online, social media and global recognition,” the insider added. “In five years he went from unknown to A-list star and creative. Currently his CBS deal is only contracted until 2022 after he turned down a five year deal.”

“Paul is a huge fan of what James does on screen. He already has a huge devoted audience, global appeal and is loved by Hollywood,” the source concluded. “Replacing Ellen was always going to be a tough challenge, but he is a natural fit and easy transition. James would freshen up daytime and with a free hand would be allowed to build a new afternoon era.”

However, some people aren’t thrilled with the thought of Corden replacing Degeneres, here’s one for example:

I feel like James Corden was never in line to replace Ellen and someone just decided to choose someone that everyone would dunk on and quote tweet for more clicks. Imo.

And, then there are some who can’t wait to see Corden take over:

DeGeneres Allegedly Wants To Quit

Another insider claimed that DeGeneres wanted to quit after months of reports alleging that she mistreats her employees behind the scenes.

“She feels she can’t go on and the only way to recover her personal brand from this is to shut down the show,” an insider at Telepictures told Daily Mail. “The truth is she knew what was going on, it’s her show. The buck stops with her. She can blame every executive under the sun – but Ellen is ultimately the one to blame.”

What do you think of James Corden being Ellen’s replacement?

Ellen DeGeneres: Twitter is sounding off about who should replace her

Who needs a headhunter when you have the hive mind?

Amid buzz that Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime talk show kingdom is crumbling — WarnerMedia is investigating the workplace after allegations of a hostile environment, and actors like “Back to the Future” star Lea Thompson are vouching for the rumors — many online think they know the perfect replacement.

Yes, #ReplaceEllen is trending as of Monday morning on Twitter.

Although DeGeneres, 62, is reportedly set to start up filming this month, and has committed to “taking steps, together, to correct the issues,” according to her statement, much of the Twitterverse is already onto the next sunny star.

“Drag Race” host RuPaul, former first lady Michelle Obama and One Direction breakout star Harry Styles are being pushed by fans on Twitter to take over the comfy chair and cushy contract, while some think a female comedian, like Wanda Sykes or Tiffany Haddish, would fit the bill.

If you’re gonna Replace Ellen have Tiffany Haddish do it 👀

But former child star-turned-movie star Drew Barrymore, whose show “The Drew Barrymore Show” premieres Sept. 14, might have beat celeb hopefuls to the punch as the incoming queen of nice. Her first promo clip — a cute mock interview with her younger self — was released Friday and has already gone viral with nearly 2.5 million views.

Meanwhile, one “Hot Ones” fan made a serious case for host Sean Evans: “He’s such a respectful guy and his show is both inventive and entertaining.” A-listers like Rihanna and Jerry Seinfeld plus actors Jennifer Garner, Robert Downey Jr. were thrown around, plus up-and-comers like the impersonator Sarah Cooper, and less serious contenders like “my dad.” Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle even got a shout-out.

But not everyone is on the train to boot the one-time fave from the screen.

“Maybe Ellen is a jerk to people in Hollywood because people in Hollywood are notoriously terrible people,” wrote one defender in a thread. “#ReplaceEllen is trending and [I] just sat wondering why people feel the need to be bullies and take part in cancel culture,” wrote @thelaurajessica.

Multiple outlets reported that “The Late Late Show” host James Corden is being tapped for the coveted spot, though Twitter was sure to swat down that idea with stories of the affable redhead acting less-than-jolly when off the clock.

Another Twitter user suggested comedian Tig Notaro, a mutual friend of “Fifty Shades” actress Dakota Johnson and DeGeneres, who apparently performed at both of their birthday parties.

Quipped an unrepentant Johnson to Ellen last November, “She’s my favorite comedian.”

Ellen DeGeneres’ ‘bizarre’ demands revealed by TV producer

Ellen left a less-than-DeGeneres impression Down Under.

The television host’s staff were walking on eggshells as they made a series of “bizarre” demands during a 2013 appearance on Australia’s “Today” show, a former producer on the morning program claimed.

“[Ellen DeGeneres’] producers called us aside … and said, ‘Now, Neil, no one is to talk to Ellen. You don’t talk to her, you don’t approach her, you don’t look at her,’” Neil Breen said this week on radio station 4BC, where he’s now a host.

The demands came after Ellen’s staff already had “watered down” her appearance on “Today” from a spot co-hosting the Sydney-based show to doing just a sit-down interview in Melbourne, which meant the production had to relocate 443 miles, Breen said.

“‘She’ll come in, she’ll sit down, she’ll talk to Richard and then Ellen will leave.’ And I sort of said, ‘I can’t look at her?’ I found the whole thing bizarre,” he added.

He also said her team controlled how the interview would be conducted, from lighting to seating. Breen said he couldn’t tell what type of person DeGeneres was, as he “never got to talk to her.”

“I have no idea whether she’s a nice person or not, I wouldn’t have a clue,” he added. “But I can tell you the people who worked with her walked on eggshells the whole time, and the whole thing was totally bizarre.

“We’re there to do an interview to promote what she’s doing, but you can’t look at her? Someone get real.”

A rep for “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.

“Ellen DeGeneres Show” Ratings Just Collapsed, Now Rumors That Her Show Will Be Canceled Are Swirling

Rumors have been swirling over the past few weeks that “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has been canceled. Now, the producers of the daytime talk show have broken their silence to reveal whether or not there is any truth to this.

Telepictures Television, the production company behind the talk show, has just denied the rumors that the program has been canceled because of Degeneres’ “rude” behavior.

More from Wayne Dupree

“Telepictures can confirm it’s untrue,” representatives for the company told Page Six.

Sorry, but the “producers” are usually the last ones to know if a show has been axed.

The cancellation rumors spread like wildfire after The Sun published a report stating that ratings for Season 17 of DeGeneres’ talk show recently fell 14 percent.

Included in the report were claims from various comedians and television writers alleging that DeGeneres is difficult to work with.

“Is she always nice? No,” one former staffer said. “It irritates me that people think she’s all sweetness and light and she gets away with it.”

“A new staff member was told, ‘Every day she picks someone different to really hate. It’s not your fault, just suck it up for the day and she’ll be mean to someone else the next day.’ They didn’t believe it but it ended up being entirely true,” added TV writer Benjamin Siemon.

This comes after months of reports claiming that DeGeneres is rude to people behind the scenes.

A few weeks ago, Tom Majercak told Fox News that he was hired to serve as DeGeneres’ bodyguard at the 86th Academy Awards, and he found her to be extremely difficult to work for.

“I’m holding their hands and walking them through individuals and large groups of people. Ellen is the one person that I’ve been assigned to — and I’ve been assigned to quite a few celebrities — that has never taken the time to say hi to me,” Majercak alleged.

“It started going negatively when she introduced me to Ellen and Ellen pretty much just gave me a side glance out of her eye and didn’t even say ‘hello,’ or ‘thank you for protecting my mother, my wife and me,’” he added, concluding that DeGeneres was “very cold.”

Beauty influencer Nikkie de Jager also said she had a difficult experience appearing on DeGeneres’ show.

“Call me naive, but I kind of expected to be welcomed with confetti cannons,” de Jager said.

“But instead I was greeted by an angry intern who was a bit overworked. I was expecting a Disney show, but I got Teletubbies after dark.”

Ellen DeGeneres is receiving backlash for a since-deleted tweet using the term ‘people of color’ | Daily Mail Online

Ellen DeGeneres is facing criticism on social media after posting and subsequently deleting a tweet about the worldwide protests after the killing of George Floyd

Immediately social media users flocked to Twitter to point out her message was ‘tone-deaf’ and hypocritical, as many pointed to her controversial friendship with George W. Bush. 

‘Like so many of you, I am angry and I am sad,’ DeGeneres wrote, according to screenshots of her since-deleted post on Saturday. ‘People of color in this country have faced injustice for far too long. For things to change, things must change.’  

Controversial: Ellen DeGeneres is facing criticism on social media after posting and subsequently deleting a tweet about the worldwide protests after the killing of George Floyd

The 62-year-old comedian added: ‘We must commit ourselves to this change with conviction and love,’ the message read.

Many questioned her decision to shy away from specifically addressing the black community, with one of her followers firing, ‘Not people of color. George Floyd was black. Why are being so cautious? Seriously?’ 

‘I still find it funny how Ellen Degeneres, a woman who is famous for boastfully signing life-size checks to random people on her show, can’t even post a screenshot on the internet of her donating money in support of Black lives,’ another chimed in.

Backlash: Immediately social media users flocked to Twitter to point out her message was ‘tone-deaf’ and ‘hypocritical,’ as many pointed to her controversial friendship with George W. Bush

After Ellen deleted her first tweet, she posted two new messages about donating to  the George Floyd Memorial Fund, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Black Lives Matter and the ACLU. 

People were still unhappy, as they continued to express their distain for hanging out with the former Republican president, who passed and upheld anti-LGBT policies for years. 

Additionally, she was slammed for cutting her employees wages by ‘60% during the pandemic’ and some pointed to the ongoing rumors of her behind-the-scenes bad behavior. 

Damage control: After deleting her first tweet, she posted two new messages about donating to to the George Floyd Memorial Fund, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Black Lives Matter and the ACLU.

Last month, she was reportedly ‘at the end of her rope’ over allegations that she is unkind and mistreats staffers. 

At the time, a former Ellen DeGeneres show staffer claimed the presenter ‘isn’t always nice’ and another told the New York Post: ‘The stories are all true!’

They said: ‘Is she always nice? No. It irritates me that people think she’s all sweetness and light and she gets away with it.’ 

Public perception: Last month, she was reportedly ‘at the end of her rope’ over allegations that she is unkind and mistreats staffers

The stories about Ellen started circulating after comic Kevin T. Porter sent out a tweet in March urging people to message him ‘the most insane stories [they’ve] heard’ about Ellen in an effort to raise money for the Los Angeles Food Bank.

Porter was flooded with written accounts by various Twitter users who claimed to have had less than savory interactions with Ellen – who he labeled as ‘notoriously one of the meanest people alive’ – over the years.

Then in early April, Ellen was slammed on social media for cracking a joke on her daytime chat show that being home all the time during the COVID-19 pandemic was akin to being behind bars.

Unhappy staff: Crew members claim they finally heard from production executives last month, when they were told to expect a 60per cent pay decrease, even while the show continues airing

At the time, Variety also reported that the main stage crew for her show – roughly 20 people – received ‘no communication’ about issues like pay and working hours for over a month.   

The show’s crew were outraged over her decision to hire a non-union tech company to help DeGeneres broadcast from home, while allegedly reducing the salaries of the show’s usual union team by 60 percent amid the coronavirus lockdown. 

Meanwhile, Ellen herself is said to have a $77million per year contract for her talk show. Her total net worth is estimated to be a whopping $330million.

Ellen DeGeneres isn’t always nice claims former staffer who says stories of her being mean are true | Daily Mail Online

‘The stories are all true!’ Ellen DeGeneres isn’t always ‘nice’ claims former chat show staffer

She’s been the target of stories about being mean in real life.

And on Sunday, the New York Post kept the rumor mill churning by quoting ‘a former Ellen DeGeneres Show staffer’ who claimed: ‘The stories are all true!’ 

‘Is she always nice? No,’ the anonymous ex-staffer told the outlet. ‘It irritates me that people think she’s all sweetness and light and she gets away with it.’

Allegations: She’s been the target of stories about being mean in real life. And on Sunday, the New York Post kept the rumor mill churning by quoting ‘a former Ellen DeGeneres Show staffer’ who claimed: ‘The stories are all true!’

The stories about the comedienne, 62, started circulating after comic Kevin T. Porter sent out a tweet in March urging people to message him ‘the most insane stories [they’ve] heard’ about Ellen in an effort to raise money for the Los Angeles Food Bank. 

Porter was flooded with written accounts by various Twitter users who claimed to have had less than savory interactions with Ellen – who he labeled as ‘notoriously one of the meanest people alive’ – over the years.

Nameless source: ‘Is she always nice? No,’ the anonymous ex-staffer told the NY Post. ‘It irritates me that people think she’s all sweetness and light and she gets away with it’

She started doing her show from her mansion in Santa Barbara, California, north of Los Angeles after the coronavirus crisis prompted a statewide lockdown and shut down many Hollywood productions.

‘This is like being in jail,’ Ellen told her fans during her April 7 show as she sat in a spacious living room with windows opening onto a large plant-filled yard.

‘Mostly because I’ve been wearing the same clothes for 10 days and everyone in here is gay,’ she quipped.

The response was swift on Twitter.

‘Ellen you quarantining in your mansion in designer sweats is nothing like prison,’ one Twitter user posted. 

Another tweeted: ‘What a great look for Ellen as thousands of people sit in actual jail cells just hoping for the best without soap and basic protections.’ 

Insensitive: Ellen, 62, faced a swift backlash after joking on her April 7 show that self-isolating in her mansion was ‘like being in jail’

Not funny: Twitter users swiftly rebuked the comedienne for being tone deaf

#Fail: Some found her quip to be completely out of order

Uncalled for: At a time when some prisoners are being released from jail due to fears over the spread of the coronavirus, Ellen was called out for her insensitivity

A week later, Variety reported that the main stage crew for her show – roughly 20 people - received ‘no communication’ about issues like pay and working hours for over a month.

To make matters worse, the crew was also ‘furious’, the outlet reported, that the daytime talk show host had hired a non-union tech company to help her broadcast daily from her home. 

A spokesperson for Warner Bros. Television made it clear the crew is still getting paid, though they confirmed their hours are reduced.

Then on May 1, Tom Majercak who was hired to provide security for Ellen when she hosted the 2014 Academy Awards, have a damaging interview to fox News in which he said the ‘cold’ star avoided eye contact with him and treated him in a ‘demeaning’ manner.

‘Ellen is the one person that I’ve been assigned to – and I’ve been assigned to quite a few celebrities – that has never taken the time to say hi to me,’ Majercak claimed to Fox. 

‘When you see her on TV, people fall in love with her but it is a false facade and bravado,’ he added. 

‘You start hearing these stories and I was like, ‘Man, there’s got to be more to this.’ She’s not the person she portrays to be that she’s playing off of society. That’s my opinion.’

Ellen, who came out as gay in an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 1997, launched her daytime chat show in September 2003 after a successful TV, film and stand-up comedy career.

She is believed to have a net worth of around $330 million and in 2018 was the 15th highest-paid entertainer in the world, according to Forbes.

Ellen has an extensive portfolio of multi-million dollar properties in exclusive upscale communities in the greater Los Angeles and Santa Barbara areas and she and wife Portia de Rossi like to purchase properties, remodel them and sell them on.

Ellen DeGeneres SLAMMED by former bodyguard for her bad behaviour at 2014 Oscars | Daily Mail Online

Ellen Degeneres is continuing to feel the heat from former staffers over her alleged behind-the-scenes bad behaviour.

The latest accusation comes from a former bodyguard who worked to protect the TV host at the 2014 Oscars, Tom Majercak, a senior manager of operations for Security Imagery Specialists (SIS).

In a damning interview with Fox News, Majercak describes DeGeneres as being “cold,” alleging she would not give him any eye contact, and treated him in a “demeaning” manner.  

Feeling the heat: Ellen DeGeneres has been hit with more claims of bad behaviour, this time by a former bodyguard who said she refused to give him eye contact at the 2014 Oscars

“I’m holding their hands and walking them through individuals and large groups of people. Ellen is the one person that I’ve been assigned to – and I’ve been assigned to quite a few celebrities – that has never taken the time to say hi to me,” Majercak claimed to Fox. 

However, the former security official – who left his security company last year – claimed he spent “a lot of time” with Ellen’s wife Portia De Rossi, who was “very pleasant and carried on a conversation.”

“It started going negatively when she introduced me to Ellen and Ellen pretty much just gave me a side glance out of her eye and didn’t even say ‘hello,’ or ‘thank you for protecting my mother, my wife and me,'” Majercak added.

Pictured: Tom Majercak was selected to serve as Ellen DeGeneres’ executive protector at the 86th Academy Awards, Fox News claims. 

At home with Ellen: DeGeneres has also been slammed by her own TV crew for poor communication and severe pay cuts while she hosts show from home

“It was very cold and it was very sly and it was actually kind of demeaning in the way that she treats people other than those who are in her circle.”

The Fox report says that representatives for DeGeneres did not respond to their request for comment.

“When you see her on TV, people fall in love with her but it is a false facade and bravado,” he added. “You start hearing these stories and I was like, ‘Man, there’s got to be more to this.’ She’s not the person she portrays to be that she’s playing off of society. That’s my opinion.” 

Majercak says he felt compelled to speak out about DeGeneres after seeing recent reports of her behaviour, particularly from transgender YouTube star NikkieTutorials, who also described the host as ‘cold.’ 

Friend to the stars: The 2014 Oscars became famous for this selfie, after Ellen cajoled the A-List crowd to take this picture 

The 25-year-old Dutch beauty influencer, whose real name is Nikkie de Jager, opened up about a January interview in a new piece for local magazine &C, in which she compared The Ellen Show to ‘Teletubbies after dark’.

Nikkie, who first voiced her upset over the interview during an appearance on Dutch show De Wereld Draait Door in February, added that she was disappointed by her treatment in the studio – where she was greeted by an ‘angry, overworked intern’.

‘Maybe I’m being naive, but I expected them to welcome me with confetti: “Welcome to The Ellen DeGeneres Show!”‘ she said in an interview.

Not all bad: Ellen’s bodyguard had nothing but nice things to say about her wife Portia de Rossi

‘But instead I got greeted by an angry intern, who was a bit overworked. I expected a Disney show, but I got a Teletubbies after dark.’

During her appearance with De Wereld Draait Door, Nikkie also revealed that Ellen didn’t even say hello to her when she arrived, telling host Matthijs van Nieuwkerk: ‘It’s really nice that you came over and said hello to me… She didn’t.’

Ellen has also been criticized by her TV crew for poor communication and severe pay cuts while she hosts show from home with non-union production staff during lockdown.

Did she just check her mentions? Ellen has been feeling the heat lately, for her alleged ‘mean’ behaviour behind-the-scenes

The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s main stage crew, which is comprised of roughly 30 people, received ‘no communication’ about issues like pay and working hours for over a month, an insider told Variety in a recent report. 

To make matters worse, the crew was also ‘furious’ upon learning that the daytime talk show host hired a non-union tech company to help DeGeneres broadcast daily from her home in California. 

Two sources at Ellen’s show, speaking to Variety under conditions of anonymity, said that ‘higher-ups in production would occasionally answer phone calls but reveal little’ about their status.

Crew members finally heard from production executives last week, when they were told to expect a whopping 60% pay decrease, even while the show continues airing.

Serve and protect: A former bodyguard of Ellen is speaking out 

Meanwhile, Ellen herself is said to have a $77million per year contract for her talk show. Her total net worth is estimated to be a whopping $330million.

Sources added that there are only four of the core crew members who are currently working on the remote version of Ellen, according to Variety.

A spokesperson for Warner Bros. Television made it clear the crew is still getting paid, though they confirmed their hours are reduced.

‘Our executive producers and Telepictures are committed to taking care of our staff and crew and have made decisions first and foremost with them in mind.’

Still, insiders speaking to the industry publication claim that for over two weeks, from late March until April 9, the crew were never told how much they would be paid.

No comment: Ellen has not yet responded to any of the rumours and claims 

Things began turning sour for the renowned talk show host when her alleged ‘mean’ behavior became a talking point on Twitter last month. 

Comedian Kevin T. Porter kicked the entire social media movement, when he sent out a tweet urging people to message him ‘the most insane stories [they’ve] heard’ about DeGeneres in an effort to raise money for the Los Angeles Food Bank.

Shortly after posting, Porter was flooded with written accounts by various Twitter users who claimed to have had less than savory interactions with Ellen – who he labeled as ‘notoriously one of the meanest people alive’ – over the years.
