Ellen DeGeneres- “Hollywood kicked me out of it for being too mean and toxic!”

She claims she’s been blacklisted.

She's not wrong.

Her standup always made me laugh, and I'd glad she's found a way to use her meanness, whatever that consists of.

(Also, not to be a prisspot, but could TMZ maybe avoid using "gonna"?)

Many of us work in toxic atmospheres and just deal with it. I have been lucky for the past year to have found a really nice work environment. This has really made me reflect on my awful experiences. One company was great for three years, and then a new chairman came in and basically poisoned the firm.

The bottom line is, removing toxicity needs to come from the top. If her show was the terrible place people claim it was, that was on her to put an end to that behavior. I don't feel sorry for her at all. Go work at Target and see how many mansions you can flip on that salary.

R14 - Her nasty behavior went back a long time. I wrote this on the "Meanest celebrities" thread.

I began reading about Ellen's meanness during the 2007 Writer's Guild strike when some writers used their time to blog about her backstage behavior. The only things I recall are that she glowered at staff when displeased, wouldn’t say what she wanted, and expected immediate mind reading and correction. Also, Christmas bonuses for the writers was some very low denomination Amex gift card. Recall she used to shill for them. Didn't cost her a thing.

In my experience, butch lesbians are the biggest pussies I've ever met. They will tie themselves in knots trying to please some femme, abusive woman who treats them like shit. They also almost all have drinking problems and are self loathing. I refuse to date them, mostly because I don't find women who mimic men and try to be as unsexual as possible, attractive. I'll never understand women who date them. Wait, I do. They date them because they are easily manipulated and most of them hate reciprocal sex. So the pillow princesses who just want to lay there and let someone else do all the work seem to love them.

Just came back from seeing her and I have to say, it was a really great show. Tig Notaro opened for her and the theater was sold out. Ellen was back to her observational humor that she was known for when she was a young stand up. She also talked about losing her show and how it was very difficult for her. I am a pretty good judge of people and while I do think Ellen likely has had some mean moments as we all have, I don't believe most of it. It was pretty obvious that most of the people in the room agreed with me. I even got to speak with her during the Q and A she held afterwards. One of the audience members asked her if she "had to apologize" to anyone after the rumors came out and she said, "No. I didn't do anything wrong" and then she asked if he was one of the people "who believed the rumors." It was a really intimate night at the Largo and I'm so glad I went. I think it was brave of her to address the rumors in the way that she did. I think her show runner was the one creating the "toxic workplace." It's worth noting that her Producer, Andy was in the audience tonight. I said to my friend, if she was really an asshole, why would anyone who worked for her want to still support her?

Come at me if you must (I'm sure you will) but Ellen has always been a hero to me for the way she came out on her sitcom. I was coming out around the same time so it was very meaningful to me. She revealed tonight that her mother has dementia which I find very sad as I'm dealing with dementia with my own mother.

She didn't have to come out at the end of the show and do a Q & A but she did and it was brave. I'm looking forward to seeing the Netflix special once she films it.

When a guest came on her show she lured her into an interview that seemed normal. The interviewee was talking about being assaulted and nearly killed by an abusive partner, and Ellen’s response was to say in a sarcastic voice tone “that’s why I made the choice to never date men” Ellen is just an ignorant and mean spirited cunt!

by Anonymousreply 73April 27, 2024 8:07 AM

She has a bizarre mean streak. On her show, she obvously delighted in putting guests down, making them ill at ease, undermining their words, making light of their sensitivities: laughing at them, never with them. Maybe she resented a format where it was her job to fawn over sub-par guests and a screaming audience of the mindless. Maybe she thought she was so much more clever, so much superior. But where's the evidence of that? In her weak-ass observational comedy? In the constant cries of persecution and bullying against her? FFS, who was making her cry (all the way to the bank with her net worth of $500M)? How many dark and struggling years has her career seen since her stupid sitcom? One might ask to narrow it down to struggles of her own making, but none of her struggles have been of her own making, nor has she had so much as a finger in any of them. Everything stems from prejudice and misunderstanding of her and people trying to thwart a simple woman just trying to hold down a job.

You don't have to read too many statements and rebuttals that she issues, or to watch her for very long in interviews or simply with the camera rollingto see that she's as unpleasant as fuck and her humor is to make herself superior to all those around her -- almost as though they were her employees (who should be goddamned happy for their fucking jobs she GAVE them!)

If she's so bitter and broken that she can't be happy for herself, let alone for others, that's down to her at this point.

if the media are still hating her, this may be spun as Ellen's feeling sorry for herself instead of standing up and accepting some responsibility. Met her twice; first time she couldn't have been nicer; 2nd time, she was nasty; which took me by surprise, especially as she'd been so nice.

That being said - it’s not “rumors,” Ellen is a cunt. I had a friend who worked directly for her at the show and the stories were beyond toxic. Next level nastiness and manipulative behavior. That was when the show was at its peak.

Look at old threads on DL - many people have shared stories of her antics. She treated people like shit and she has a cruel streak that’s pathological.

I don’t think she should be cancelled - if she has fans (like you) then there is always a place for her to perform. I also don’t give a shit about her friendship with George Bush.

But don’t be fooled. Also, her producer Andy Lassner was complicit in her bullshit for years, so of course he’s still in touch with her and at the Largo show. No surprise there.

[quote]I'd be willing to bet that "awful Ellen" is just drunk Ellen.

She does seem a classic case of Mean Drunk.

I had lesbian neighbors who were fans of Ellen and her daytime show which was popular at the time. But one of the couple was quick to observe that a substantial amount of Ellen's humor on the show was steered to drinking. It was always there, she said, but at some point it passed from a casual laugh to a central point of humor: 'I'll drink to that!', 'Drinks are on you and I could use a few!', thirsty for a drink, needing a drink, how good a drink would be right now, and references to fun drunks and drunkeness. And with the boozy references, her humor which had always been a bit 'mischievous' turned sour and nasty. Between the two possibly related things my friend's respect for Ellen diminished considerably and she stopped watching the show that she once recorded daily.

Just from what few random clips I watched it all seemed to fit, and thinking about people I had known who would weave alcohol into any conversation, it did seem that it might mask a odd obsession. To laugh it off constantly seems a fairly obvious way for some people to attempt to mask a problem. But of course the real problem was never that Ellen was a mean drunk and a mean person, it was always that other people were mean to her.

"I had a friend who worked directly for her at the show"

These are ALWAYS how these responses go. "A friend of a friend said...I knew someone who..." There were people in the audience last night who, during the Q and A said they had worked with her on her sitcom and appreciated her kindness. My own mother bought her dogs through the same breeder that Ellen and Portia used and the guy described Ellen and Portia as "couldn't have been nicer ladies!" I have a friend who ran into her once and said she wasn't pleasant, but that can be a lot of celebs on any given day.

Like I said, I'm sure there is some truth to both sides. But again, celebrities are humans. And many comedians talk about alcohol and surprise! most people drink to excess and laugh about it when recalling stories. She might be an alcoholic and maybe that does explain some asshole behavior but still, I look at the big picture. Then I see comments like r81 and remember how many of those I recall hearing/seeing after she came out and well, attacking one of our own and mocking them seems typical of snarky gay male behavior but also borders on homophobic.

Of all the people in the world who deserve ire, the amount directed toward Ellen seems complete overkill. She's done more good than bad and I don't necessarily think having a bad day or even her being an alcoholic if she is deserves the kind of treatment I've seen here, on a gay website no less. She even said last night that she is a comedian and had zero experience of "being a boss." Hell, she didn't even graduate college. I think the majority of people who watched her every day on her talk show enjoyed it because she was funny AND kind. Her humor was a bit dark at times, but most of us have a dark humor, especially those of us who grew up gay. Ellen is a human being and I was happy to see her show last night. She looks older, but she said she stopped doing botox and fillers and is embracing aging. I will always admire her, even IF someone comes out with actual proof of her being the fucking devil. She did more for the gay community than a lot of gay men have done and maybe that's where the bitterness comes in. It's no secret that a lot of gay men hate lesbians. All you have to do is spend a day on this site. In my case, I've been here for 24 years and the shit I've seen on here is far worse towards lesbians/women than anything Ellen has done. Maybe, just maybe, Ellen has gotten sick of it throughout the years too.

Has she acutally come out and admitted she is a miserable cunt who demanded underlings not look her In the eye? How she treated females on her staff? I would respect her if she did. Not this optics thing. No dear you were an out of control cunt.

Time has gone by enough for her to play victim.

She actually got off easy because the story went from her being an asshole to the producers being assholes and she got to play dumb and acted like she didn’t know what was going on.

But she was a cunt and deserves everything she feels.

I watched this movie for the first time recently. All I could think while watching this was that Beryl Reid's character, George, reminds me of and is the proto-Ellen DeGeneres (minus the fact that George is British and a working soap actress, not a stand-up comedian and former talk show host). I sure hope Ellen doesn't secretly molest nuns in taxi cabs and forces Portia to eat cigar butts when at home.

It's a very good movie, but more than a half-century later, it eerily foreshadows the stuff that came out about Ellen's toxic behavior when the cameras weren't rolling.

R100 My god, Jenner is probably the dumbest, most confused person to ever exist. "I'm a traditionalist," you say as you declare to the world that you are opposite of the gender you were as. You "dont really get" gay marriage, but you believe you are a woman? Just jump into a greasefire already. The red nails on those giant man hands are the icing on the cake.

Jenner is a dumb jock, but there’s a good argument that certain transgender people — clowns like Jenner and Mulvaney —- actually reinforce traditionalist gender roles through exaggerated behavior and attire, so yes — Jenner is a traditionalist..

She can claim it was producers but there were 100s of stories of HER being mean. Her tormenting staff, the rule not allowing people to talk to her or look her in the eye. She is a miserable cunt. She needs to admit it.

Because comedy culture is the adult version of mean kids on playgrounds, r114. When I was in high school in the. 90's, I was bullied using the same homophobic one liners that I would see on Comedy Central.

What does Portia sees in her? It can't all be just about money. She's hot, she could have any hot bi/gay woman. I would understand if Ellen wasat least a good person. But as it turns out, she isn't.

Yes he was an asshole, but he didn't claim he wasn't and that allowed his good qualities to shine.

Ellen's abusive behavior was well known enough prior to being 'cancelled'. The bigwigs didn't care so long as she was profitable. When the show became less profitable, the studio began negotiating with Ellen and she was rumored to have played hardball rather than accepting that all things eventually run their cycle. At that point, I think they let all the stories come to light rather than making them go away as they would in the past. The rest took care of itself.

She can point fingers, but her hubris did her in. Had she worked with the studio, they could have structured an exit that worked for everyone, and she could have parlayed that into another gig. Instead, she believed her own hype. I have no sympathy for this multi-millionaire who can spend the rest of her days in leisure but instead is a rage-filled goblin with no appreciation for her position.

If she can invite a "friend" onto her show, act all buddy-buddy, then reduce her to squatting in the street and mewing like a kitten, she must have been a real cunt behind the scenes.

Oddly, it doesn't seem to be true for black lesbian comics like Wanda and Marsha Warfield.

She’s never going to be able to make a comeback. Her real personality being revealed was far too different from her screen persona and her audience of fraus just couldn’t handle it. The gays abandoned her long ago. And look at that face. Talk about getting the face you deserve. The one thing I’m sad about is she ruined Dory.
