The hits against Ellen DeGeneres keep coming. Ellen getting called out as a monster is a tale as old as time, and her show is even getting the internal investigation treatment for how toxic it allegedly is behind the scenes as Ellen puts on a sunshiney sweet act in front of the cameras. And now, Australian radio host Neil Breen is adding his two cents by claiming Ellen‘s blue-eyed brand of fuckery took a trip to the land down under during an interview he could only refer to as “bizarre“.
Us Weekly reports that while Neil was an executive producer of Australia’s Today, Ellen was scheduled to boogie her way down to the show and engage in a multitude of tasks on-air. I’m sure everyone came to the set happily awaiting a magical sprite full of sunshine and sweet Tipsy Auntie dance moves but were treated to evil stepmother realness instead. Initially, Neil revealed that Ellen was supposed to co-host Today but after a series of changes ultimately it became a very basic sit down interview between Ellen and longtime Australian journalist Richard Wilkins. After traveling to Melbourne at their own expense to conduct the interview, Neil and his team learned quickly that it wasn’t going to be an enjoyable experience at all. During a segment of his radio show 4BC Breakfast With Neil Breen he stated;
“Because it’s the Ellen show, they controlled everything. They controlled the interview seats, the lights, how it would work, everything,” Breen recalled. “The producers called us aside and said, ‘This is how it’s going to work here this morning. Ellen’s going to arrive at 10:15, and she’ll be sitting in this chair. And Richard, you’ll be sitting in this chair here. Neil, no one’s to talk to Ellen. You don’t talk to her, you don’t approach her, you don’t look at her. She’ll come in, she’ll sit down, she’ll talk to Richard, then Ellen will leave.’”
Neil Breen did go on to say that it was mainly Ellen’s team, and not Ellen herself, who were making all the divalicious demands.
“I didn’t get to talk to her,” he reiterated. “I wasn’t allowed to. I don’t know if she’s a nice person or not. I wouldn’t have a clue. But I can tell you, the people who worked with her walked on eggshells the whole time.”
Finding out Ellen isn’t really as nice as she pretends to be on television is like finding out Papa Smurf had Smurfette on the hoe stroll after rescuing her from Gargamel’s lair of despair. And as the stories continue to pile up at some point Ellen better be preparing her greatest musical number yet when she goes on Instagram live and tap dances to a very heartfelt rendition of Demi Lovato’s Sorry, Not Sorry. That song is the best choice at this point since it seems she really doesn’t give a damn about any of this.
