Ellen DeGeneres has been under the radar for a long time now. The US host grabbed all the limelight amid the pandemic. However, the reasons have not been very favourable. It began with her employees accusing her of non-payment of dues. Eventually pay cuts, mean behaviour and ‘toxic work environment’ turned out to be a part of the allegations too.
While most of Ellen’s close ones have remained tight-lipped for long, they’re finally supporting her. It began with Portia de Rossi sharing an ‘I Stand By Ellen’ post. Kevin Hart, Katy Perry, Jerry O’Connell, Orlando Bloom remain other celebs who sent love and support. Now, joining the list is her friend, Howard Stern.
Howard Stern has quite a blunt advice for Ellen DeGeneres. He suggests that The Ellen Show host should embrace her rude behaviour. Furthermore, he shared what he would have done had he been in his friend’s position.
On the Howard Stern show, the radio personality mentioned that he would “changed [his] whole image” – had he been in Ellen DeGeneres’ position. He added, “I’d go on the air and be a son of a bitch. People would come on and [I would] go, ‘F–k you.’ Just be a p—k.”
Howard also shared how things are different with him. “So you think I’m a p—k? I’m going to show you exactly. … I’m known on the air as a p—k, but off the air, I’m known as a great guy, you know, for the most part,” he added.
He also made a funny comment when he asked, “You know who’s abused in my workplace?” he asked. “Me.”
Well, only time will tell if Ellen DeGeneres really takes her close friend’s advice.
Meanwhile, rumours were rife that The Ellen Show host was considering giving up on the show. Later it was revealed that she was very much still in.
