  • I don’t see any of the rudeness or indifference everyone seems to want to tear down Ellen, for. With the exception of a few instances where, there are some might call, “uncomfortable moments” i.e. with, K. Jenner, W. Williams or D. Barrymore.. There’s bound to be occasional times of a difference of opinion or something going slightly south when you’ve been on the air, on one platform for many years and created thousands of shows, thousands of top rated shows, year after year. It’s Ellen’s craft of sarcastic, playful and sometimes goofy and over the top, style of talk show she’s had since day 1, with J. Aniston. Ellen has never made fun of her guests in a malicious manner, and contrary to what others have said, she’s poked fun at herself many of times! It’s all for the audiences in the studio and home audiences. What she dose is not easy, if it were, then everyone who’s tried their hand at it, would be as successful with the sale longevity. And, that’s NOT the case. She’s done something very right for a long time.. It’s always the same, some few people have a negative thing to say about someone, then a few more follow, and then, sadly enough, some more followers. If as a new guest, you come on to Ellens show with unrealistic high expectations of her, and then claim to be disappointed after meeting Ellen, well that’s obviously due to the internal misguided feelings of insecurities or unhappiness of the guest and certainly not the responsibility of the Host, in this case Ellen. No, to me, this is just another one of those sad times in someone’s career where, society loves to build you up, so far up, and without warning, those same people have to tear you down. It’s just time, Ellen. There is nothing you could have done or prepared yourself for it. It’s a reset of sorts. You have expired. Now it’s time to start the whole process all over again with another starry-eyed hopeful.. Society> NEXT..?

  • Holy shit my heart dropped when taylor swift yelled “stop it stop it stop!!” She’s so genuinely upset and ellen just does NOT notice or care. That moment is up there with mariah carey’s pregnancy “reveal” on how horrible ellen is just on camera

  • Look, say whatever you want about and to another adult; critique, debate, argue, disagree, grill, spar WHATEVER, as long as it’s adult to adult and about adults. But kids? KIDS ARE ABSOLUTELY OFF LIMITS. YOU DO NOT CRITIQUE OTHER PEOPLE’S KIDS. Celine was 💯 in the right for defending her child and pushing back on Ellen’s poor choice of critique and comment. If Ellen had children, she would know you don’t do that. It’s low and has the stench of bullying and can be a very hurtful thing to do. All good parent know this and would never talk negatively like this about someone’s children, ESPECIALLY on a TV show where it lives forever and they could see it. Not only do good parents know this fact, most people who don’t have kids know it too. Was very disappointed in Ellen in that particular moment. She hit a low with that one. Kids are off limits. For the record, and before people try to spin my comment, I’m a lesbian who’s married to a wonderful wife and we have three wonderful children. I’m speaking as a conscientious, loving parent, and my comment has nothing to do with Ellen being gay. It has to do with the fact that KIDS ARE OFF LIMITS when it comes to critiques, criticisms, and trash talking.

  • I don’t know why there are so many negative comments on Ellen. But I completely agree with some of them now that I’ve read them and she is a pretty annoying. She’s done a lot and I’m thankful for that but I understand the comments now tbh

  • I’m sorry! Wendy Williams looks like a blow-up doll!! She’s disgusting to look at, even more when she opens her filthy mouth! You know what’s been in that blow-up doll mouth 😆 The breast enhancement surgeon made a cut above her naval horizontally and put the hose in & pumped her upper body full of silicon - forgot to divide it in two, it wraps around her body - well, as blow-up doll 👍

  • The beginning of the video shows Hillary Clinton dancing like an old white woman. To have her on a show is not only despicable but is outrageously undefined. She is a proven liar or a proven crooked politician a proven destroyer of any evidence that the government could’ve found against her and quite possibly a murderer and a killer. As far as Jessica Simpson there is nothing negative you can say about her she has a normal body she is not starving herself to look like a 10-year-old boy and not only is she “thick” and curvaceous like a real woman should , she actually is extremely bright for a natural blonde. And yes we all agree nobody likes Ellen at all especially the funky little shaken her body at the beginning Of her show that she calls dancing, like a 20 yo younger Hillary!

  • I'd like to point out, as a conservative, right wing Republican, that to insinuate the majority of us would vote against LGBTQ rights is incredibly presumptuous & simply inaccurate. Belonging to one end of the political spectrum does not mean that one strictly adheres to every assumed side of an issue. Even many who may disagree with LGBTQ on an ethical, moral or religious basis, would not vote against their freedoms and rights. Some right/left wing ideologies do tend to carry the majority based on political preference such as abortion or 2nd amendment rights but we really ought not judge or assume a persons full perspective based alone on these kinds of issues!
