Ellen DeGeneres might end her run as a daytime talk show host soon

Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen DeGeneres revealed she’s considering ending her run as a daytime talk show host on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (aka Ellen).

The comedian, who recently released her first stand-up show in years, made the comments in an interview with the New York Times.

Ellen began airing in 2003, going on to win 59 Daytime Emmy Awards and 18 People’s Choice Awards. On the talk show, DeGeneres interviews various celebrities, plays games, and does a whole lot of dancing.

DeGeneres recently extended the show’s contract until summer 2020, but it may not last much longer than that.

Her wife, Portia de Rossi, is encouraging her to move on, while DeGeneres’ brother wants her to stay on.

‘She gets mad when my brother tells me I can’t stop,’ she told the newspaper.

Rossi justified her stance: ‘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.’

DeGeneres also said she’d like to do more movies or plays.

Other tidbits

Elsewhere in the interview, DeGeneres said she doesn’t read press about herself. It has to do with all the rumors.

‘I hear Portia and I are divorcing every other week or having a baby or whatever.’

The pair recently celebrated their 1o-year anniversary, and DeGeneres also explained why the couple hasn’t had a baby.
