Despite facing major backlash from some of her team members, Ellen DeGeneres is all set to return to the screen as a host.
She will continue with the 18th season of her show after producers gave her the green light to do so.
However, reports suggest that there are investigations going on regarding the recent allegations of a ‘toxic work environment.’
The famous talk show star suffered a great deal of criticism when multiple people made claims that her producers supported a rather toxic environment of working. And that includes factors like racism as well as bullying.
Despite all the major drama surrounding her, Ellen DeGeneres is all set for her show’s latest season. The famed talk show is renowned for its slogan, ‘Be Kind,’ even though many fail to agree to its authenticity.
Recently, rumors spread about the star host quitting as well as other celebs lining up to fill in her shoes. Some of the names for Ellen’s replacement as a host on the show include celebs such as Jennifer Aniston, Sean Hayes, Melissa McCarthy, and Kristen Bell.
NBC News reported that a very close source of The Ellen DeGeneres Show made claims that, ‘no one else is stepping in or taking over.’ However, investigations regarding the allegations are still underway.
The breaking news comes moments after staffers attended a meeting, held on Monday. And that’s where the topic of discussion revolved around how the show plans to move forward, despite such serious accusations.
Ellen DeGeneres was accompanied by her show’s executive producers, Andy Lassner, Derek Westervelt, and Mary Connelly. Likewise, other senior staff members also joined the meeting. And that’s where reports claimed that ‘issues were addressed.’
Currently, no crewmembers returned for filming. And that’s because the show is still planning how it wants to carry out all of its upcoming seasons, with safety protocols in place.
