There are reports that Ellen DeGeneres is thinking about putting “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” behind her.
Say it ain’t so.
Ellen DeGeneres has a signed contract to stay on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” through 2020, but our sources have told us that she is still considering ending it.
The two closest people in Ellen’s lives have different views on her reported consideration. Her wife, Portia de Rossi, supports her decision to leave daytime television and actually recommends it for her! Portia has commented, “I just think she’s such a brilliant actress and standup that it doesn’t have to be this talk show for her creativity. There are other things she could tackle.” Even though Portia would like to see Ellen dedicate her time to other ventures, she is still a huge fan of the show and all that it does.
On the other hand, Ellen’s brother wants the show to stay alive. Ellen’s brother, Vance DeGeneres, thinks that her show is a voice for a lot of people and it does so much good for others that she has to keep going with it.
For now, Ellen is concentrating on her first comedy special in fifteen years, “Relatable,” which will be available on Netflix on December 18th.
