A former producer of The Ellen DeGeneres Show has come out and made some shocking claims about the embattled TV host, 62.
On Wednesday, Hedda Muskat appeared on the Australian breakfast program Sunrise and claimed that she was ’emotionally abused’ during her time working on the show.
It comes amid a scandal that the show’s work culture is rife with bullying, racism and sexual harassment.
Speaking out: Former Ellen DeGeneres Show producer Hedda Muskat has made more shocking claims about the embattled host (pictured) and said she was ’emotionally abused’ amid toxic workplace scandal
Ms Muskat, who worked on the show during its debut season in 2003, said that she was ‘fired for no reason’.
‘I was more emotionally abused, fired for no reason… they told me that they were just going to take the show in a different direction. They ended up gave my job to a guy I trained who was about 24 years old and had no experience,’ Ms Muskat said.
Ms Muskat said that once when executive producer Ed Glavin pulled her into his office, she was asked about her contacts and sources and refused to give them up to maintain journalistic integrity, which did her no favours.
‘From that moment I was on the hit list and no longer invited to staff meetings… wasn’t allowed to sit at their table at the Emmy’s – it was a very egg-shell environment,’ Hedda said.

Ms Muskat said on Sunrise that Ellen’s behaviour was poor from the beginning and that she’d often ‘snarl’.
‘When you walk into her office for example, to pitch her your segments, there was always a snarl. I always felt that I was never welcomed in her office, she always hurried me, “like get to the point, get to the point,” Ms Muskat said.
Ms Muskat claimed that after a few months, she was told to no longer go into Ellen’s office.
Bad behaviour? Ms Muskat said on Sunrise that Ellen’s behaviour was poor from the beginning and that she’d often ‘snarl’
She said that one day she even took her daughter into work and wanted to introduce her to Ellen, but she was shown ‘so much disrespect’.
‘She just snarled again, walked by and I was flabbergasted, she didn’t even make eye contact,’ Ms Muskat said.
‘I was told later to no longer bring my daughter to work… I was told… “she doesn’t want kids in the office.”
Ms Muskat said that she’s the first producer to come forward and put their name to their claims, with many going forward anonymously.
But she hopes to encourage others to do the same.
‘I’m coming forward because… she trivalised and minimalised everybody’s accusations…. nobody wanted to listen to us until now.’
Ms Muskat meanwhile called DeGeneres ‘toxic’ in an interview with The Wrap that was published on Monday.
‘I had never seen this before, I had never been around a toxic host,’ she said.
Speaking with The Wrap, she recalled one instance in which Ellen ‘giggled’ while the show’s executive producer, Ed Glavin, screamed at a crew member in front of an entire room.

‘He [Glavin] just went off on them. His whole face turned red. … We were stunned,’ Ms Muskat recalled.
‘I was waiting for Ellen to say something like, “Whoa, Ed, don’t talk like that”. But do you know what she did? She giggled.’
Ms Muskat went on: ‘She [Ellen] crossed her legs up on the chair and she said, “Well, I guess every production needs their dog”.
‘You could just see everybody’s faces go stiff. We’re professionals; we’re adults. We don’t need a dog to get us to do our jobs … She was the only one giggling.’
‘Ed [Glavin] didn’t act independently. Ed was a bully, but he worked for Ellen. It was her show,’ Ms Muskat stated.
The scandal is making headlines around the world, with claims that the show’s work culture is rife with bullying, racism and sexual harrassment.
In July, staffers on the syndicated daytime talk show had cited a number of the show’s executive producers in their complaints, including Kevin Leman and Ed Glavin.
Last week, DeGeneres told staffers she was sorry about what was going on, in a memo addressing the ongoing controversy.

‘On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would be a place of happiness – no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect,’ she wrote. ‘Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case. And for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show.’
DeGeneres said she was unable to ‘stay on top of everything’ with her hosting duties and delegated to ‘others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done.
‘Clearly some didn’t. That will now change and I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again… I’m also learning that people who work with me and for me are speaking on my behalf and misrepresenting who I am and that has to stop.’
She added: ‘As someone who was judged and nearly lost everything for just being who I am, I truly understand and have deep compassion for those being looked at differently, or treated unfairly, not equal, or – worse – disregarded. To think that any one of you felt that way is awful to me.’
Celebs who have gone public against Ellen include Brad Garrett and Lea Thompson, while celebs who’ve emerged in defense of the embattled talk show host, including Scooter Braun, DJ/musician Samantha Ronson and Ellen’s wife of 12 years Portia de Rossi.

Portia who posted a graphic on Instagram saying, ‘I stand by Ellen’ in what appeared to be an attempt to push public sentiment back in the corner of the talk show host. ‘To all our fans….we see you. Thank you for your support,’ Portia wrote Monday, adding the hashtags, #stopbotattacks, #IStandWithEllenDeGeneres and #IStandByEllen.
A source told the New York Post that the talk show host has been ‘crushed,’ ‘devastated’ and ‘hysterical’ amid calls for her to leave the show.
‘She felt like everything she worked so hard for was falling apart,’ the insider said.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted representatives of Ellen for comment in relation to this story.

David Tennant is named the BEST Time Lord in Doctor Who
David Tennant has been voted the best Doctor Who by fans, in a poll released by Radio Times on Sunday.
The actor, 49, originally took on the role of the 10th Doctor in the iconic sci-fi series between 2005 and 2010, but is still a stalwart favourite.
Earning a grand total of 10,518 votes, David beat current star Jodie Whittaker to the top spot by just 95 votes, as she won 10, 423 votes.
Winner! David Tennant was named the BEST Time Lord in Doctor Who as the actor beats current star Jodie Whittaker by just 95 votes in a poll on Sunday
Peter Capaldi, who was the last Doctor to star during Steven Moffat’s tenure as showrunner, was given third place with 8,897 votes.
Matt Smith was next in the poll after gaining 7,637 votes, while of the new era of Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston came in at eighth place with just 1,144 votes.
Tom Baker was voted the best Doctor of the shows original run as he earned fifth place with 3,977 votes, while William Hartnell, who was the first actor to play the Time Lord in 1963, came in sixth place for 1,983 votes.
Close second: Earning a grand total of 10,518 votes, David beat current star Jodie (pictured) to the top spot by just 95 votes, as she won 10, 423 vote
Third place: Peter Capaldi, who was the last Doctor to star during Steven Moffat’s tenure as showrunner, was given third place with 8,897 votes
Peter Davison, who played the part from 1981 to 1984, came in last at 13th place, and he is also David’s father-in-law as the actor is married to Peter’s daughter Georgia.
The Scottish star met his wife Georgia on the show when she appeared in 2008 episode The Doctor’s Daughter.
David and Peter appeared on screen together as the fifth and tenth incarnations of the time-travelling alien in the 2007 mini-episode Time Crash, which aired as part of Children In Need.
Fourth place: Matt Smith was next in the poll after gaining 7,637 votes, while of the new era of Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston came in at eighth place with just 1,144 votes
Classic who: Tom Baker was voted the best Doctor of the shows original run as he earned fifth place with 3,977 votes
The pair wed in 2011 and share children Olive, nine, Wilfred, seven, and Doris, five, and Birdie, eleven months, and David adopted Georgia’s 18-year-old son Ty when they married.
Huw Fullerton, sci-fi and fantasy editor of Radio Times said of the poll: ‘Over a decade after he left the TARDIS behind and after nearly 50,000 votes were cast, it’s clear David Tennant is still Doctor Who fans’ perfect 10.
But with Jodie Whittaker hot on his heels and a great showing for other recent Doctors like Peter Capaldi, it looks like the fans also hold other Time Lords close to their hearts.’
Finishing on a nail-biting cliffhanger, Doctor Who’s eagerly-awaited return will be for a festive special, it was announced in March.
Doctor Who: Who’s the best Time Lord
1. David Tennant – 10,518
2. Jodie Whittaker – 10,423
3. Peter Capaldi – 8,897
4. Matt Smith – 7,637
5. Tom Baker – 3,977
6. William Hartnell – 1,983
7. Paul McGann – 1,427
8. Christopher Eccleston – 1,144
9. Jon Pertwee – 1,038
10. Patrick Troughton – 915
11. Sylvester McCoy – 462
12. Colin Baker – 359
13. Peter Davison – 351
With the fate of the Doctor hanging in the balance amid the Great CyberWar and return of The Master at the end of Series 12, fans will have to wait until December to see how the action unfolds.
The identity of the Timeless Child was finally revealed, throwing everything fans know about the Doctor into question.
Jodie will be back as the near-immortal Time Lord in the upcoming festive episode curiously titled Revolution of the Daleks.
This can only mean that the Doctor’s biggest and most feared enemies, the Daleks, will be front and centre in shaping the next series, set to be Jodie’s last.
Showrunner Chris Chibnall said at the time: ‘We can’t leave the Doctor there! On that cliffhanger! Well, we did.
‘But rest assured, the Doctor and her friends will be back for a one-off extended Special around Christmas and New Year. (I don’t know when they’re going to put it on yet, otherwise we’d tell you!).
‘There will be Daleks. There will be exterminations. Thrills, laughter, tears. You know. The usual. See you at the end of the year.’
Producers also confirmed Tosin Cole, who plays Ryan, Bradley Walsh’s Graham, and Yaz played by Mandip Gill will all be returning for the festive episode.
The original: William Hartnell (centre), who was the first actor to play the Time Lord in 1963, came in sixth place for 1,983 votes
Not bad: Peter Davison, who played the part from 1981 to 1984, came in last at 13th place, and he is also David’s father-in-law as the actor is married to Peter’s daughter Georgia

Jason Bateman is joined by daughter Maple, eight, as he attends the 2020 Emmys
Jason Bateman ensured his youngest daughter claimed her own share of the spotlight as the virtual Emmy Awards got underway in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
The celebrated actor was joined by eight-year old Maple – one of two children with wife Amanda Anka – while attending the annual event from home.
Sitting alongside her father, the youngster looked delighted to be involved as the event launched remotely for the first time in its history.
Getting involved: Jason Bateman ensured his youngest daughter claimed her own share of the spotlight as the virtual Emmy Awards got underway in Los Angeles on Sunday night
Bateman was appearing at the event having been nominated for Lead Actor for his starring role in Ozark.
However the actor missed out on the night, with the prize going to Succession star Jeremy Strong.
The actor previously bore the brunt of an inadvertent gaffe being incorrectly named as the winner of the Guest Actor Award instead of its intended recipient, This Is Us star Ron Cephas Jones.
In good company: The celebrated actor was joined by eight-year old Maple – one of two children with wife Amanda Anka – while attending the annual event from home
The error occurred during Saturday’s online creative arts Emmys, precursor to Sunday’s main ceremony and the culmination of a week of events honoring technical and other achievements.
Saturday’s show on FXX, however, was the only one of the creative arts presentations to be televised, making the error more glaring. In a voice-over announcement, Bateman was declared the winner for his guest appearance on HBO’s The Outsider, while the screen displayed Jones’ name.
The confusion wasn’t addressed until after a commercial break, with an on-screen message that read, ‘Our apologies, an incorrect winner has been announced. We’re fixing it now,’ followed by the repeated display of Jones’ name but without an announcement.

There was no immediate explanation for the mistake.
Jones was good-natured about the mistake when he fielded questions virtually afterward, focused instead on his second Emmy for ‘This Is Us’ and especially on his daughter, actor-singer Jasmine Cephas Jones.
He expressed delight when learning that the pair made Emmy history as the first father and daughter to win in the same year. Her short-form series acting trophy came earlier this week for Quibi´s ‘#FreeRayshawn.’
‘My heart just explodes when I think about her and watch her and the success that she´s had,’ he said.

Mischa Barton opts for a laid back look as she goes for an afternoon stroll near her home
She rose to fame for her role in teen drama The O.C. before she turned to reality TV with an appearance on MTV’s The Hills: New Beginnings.
And Mischa Barton cut a casual figure as went for an afternoon stroll near her home in Los Angeles on Sunday.
The TV star, 34, opted for a laid back look for the outing, donning a pink jumper with a deep v-neckline.
Out and about: Mischa Barton, 34, cut a casual figure as went for an afternoon stroll near her home in Los Angeles on Sunday
The actress also wore grey tracksuit bottoms which she paired with black flats with a gold buckle.
Mischa styled her dark blonde locks into an updo for the day and completed her outfit with a gold necklace.
Enjoying a drink as she soaked up some sun, the star appeared to go makeup free for the outing.
Mischa was on her own on Sunday after being seen out earlier this month with actor Gian Marco Flamini.
Casual: The TV star opted for a laid back look for the outing, donning a pink jumper with a deep v-neckline along with a pair of white tracksuit bottoms
The couple were glimpsed arm-in-arm as they strolled around Echo Park Lake in LA, before they shared a sweet kiss.
The British–American star had previously been in a relationship with James Abercrombie, which ended in July 2019, though they were spotted together again in October of last year.
Following early roles in Lawn Dogs (1997) and The Sixth Sense (1999), Mischa burst into the spotlight with her starring role on The O.C., which premiered on Fox in 2003.
She played Marissa Cooper, a neighbor to Ryan Atwood (Ben McKenzie) and Seth Cohen (Adam Brody) in Orange County’s Newport Beach who struggled with drug abuse issues.

Classic: Following early roles in Lawn Dogs (1997) and The Sixth Sense (1999), Mischa burst into the spotlight with her starring role on the teen drama The O.C., which premiered in 2003
Mischa departed the series following its third season, at which point The O.C.’s ratings began a precipitous decline.
Mischa’s connection to Orange County made her a logical choice to join The Hills: New Beginnings, an update on the original MTV reality series.
She was featured in the first season, which began airing in June 2019, but her future on the series is currently uncertain.
Us Weekly reported in March that the actress wouldn’t be returning for a second season of the revival and would be replaced by Caroline D’Amore.
Mischa denied the report on Instagram shortly after, writing, ‘Lol. Where do people get their reporting from?’
She also took shots at Caroline: ‘As if anyone would watch @Carolinedamore try to hoc her boring a** pasta bowls and greasy pizza on tv. Tried that it was like watching paint dry. Get the story straight first @usweekly.’
Short stint: Mischa’s fictional connection to Orange County made her a logical choice to join the new reboot of The Hills, but she has reportedly been dropped for the second season (pictured in June 2019)
