Ellen DeGeneres is ending her talk show next season

Ellen DeGeneres had a long talk with the staff of her show yesterday, and she revealed to them that next season will be her last one. She told The Hollywood Reporter that this decision was years in the making and not related to all of the rumors about her being abusive that came out last year.

“I was going to stop after season 16. That was going to be my last season and they wanted to sign for four more years and I said I’d sign for maybe for one. They were saying there was no way to sign for one. ‘We can’t do that with the affiliates and the stations need more of a commitment.’ So, we [settled] on three more years and I knew that would be my last,” Ellen told THR. “That’s been the plan all along. And everybody kept saying, even when I signed, ‘You know, that’s going to be 19, don’t you want to just go to 20? It’s a good number.’ So is 19. [Laughs]”

Ellen went on to say that she is a creative person, and she needs a new outlet to be creative because the show is not challenging her anymore. However, she does not share with them what she wants to do next.

The Daytime Talk Show host also talked about how the rumors of her being mean affected her but not the show. “It almost impacted the show. It was very hurtful to me. I mean, very. But if I was quitting the show because of that, I wouldn’t have come back this season,” she said to them. “So, it’s not why I’m stopping but it was hard because I was sitting at home, it was summer, and I see a story that people have to chew gum before they talk to me and I’m like, ]’Okay, this is hilarious.’ Then I see another story of some other ridiculous thing and then it just didn’t stop. And I wasn’t working, so I had no platform, and I didn’t want to address it on [Twitter] and I thought if I just don’t address it, it’s going to go away because it was all so stupid.”

I think we all knew this was coming. She has been only been working four days on the show, and the fifth day is being helmed by a guest host. That is what Johnny Carson did at the end of the tenor, so it felt like something was coming. And it happened.

When it comes to the guest hosts, I wonder if that is NBC and Warner Bros’ way of auditioning people to be her replacement. That is if NBC wants to continue doing a talk show. They might decide to do an hour of news or possibly add a game show to their schedule.

What do you want to replace Ellen? Are you going to miss her?

Before Kaley Cuoco was being interviewed by Ellen DeGeneres, she played a younger version of her on Ellen. How cute was the 10-year-old in that 1996 episode?


Justin Timberlake finally confirms baby #2

Back in September, there were rumors that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel welcomed a second child. Today on Ellen, he confirmed that they welcomed a baby boy that they named Phineas.

They are grateful for their second son, but neither he, his wife, nor their oldest son Silas, 5, are getting any sleep. As you can tell from his lackadaisical interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

Phineas is not the only secret project he has had in the works. The singer also revealed he is close to being done with another album.


Ellen DeGeneres says she is feeling 100% after being diagnosed with COVID-19

Last week, Ellen DeGeneres revealed that she tested positive for COVID-19. Today, she gave an update on her health.

“I am feeling 100%,” the daytime talk show host said. “I am feeling really good.” However, she did add that she had excruciating back pain. Now, she knows how her crew feels because she is reportedly such a pain in the a$$.

Anyways, is it just me, or does her voice sound different? I think it sounds like she sucked on helium.


Ellen DeGeneres and Carrie Ann Inaba got the COVID

Today was supposed to be Day 12 of Ellen Degeneres’ 12 Days of Giving. However, she got a gift that canceled her plans to do that.

“Hi Everyone, I want to let you all know that I tested positive for Covid-19. Fortunately, I’m feeling fine right now. Anyone who has been in close contact with me has been notified, and I am following all proper CDC guidelines,” Degeneres wrote. “I’ll see you all again after the holidays. Please stay healthy and safe.”

DeGeneres is the first talk show host to come down with coronavirus since they resumed production back in their studios. Her daytime talk show was the first one to bring back a live audience. She also interviews guests in person without a mask.

I wonder her diagnosis will change how things are done on the other shows. Only time will tell.

UPDATE: The Talk’s Carrie Ann Inaba also tested positive for COVID-19. She is second the daytime host to get it.

The Talk and Ellen tape on two different lots a few miles away from each other. Actually, I live in between both studios, and now I am worried I am going to get it. Good thing I cannot go out.

Get well soon, Carrie. Hopefully, your cats are taking care of you.
