Today hosts Karl Stefanovic and Allison Langdon have slammed Ellen DeGeneres‘ apology following allegations that her show harboured a toxic workplace.

On Monday, the comedian kicked off the 18th season of her daytime talk show by telling her virtual audience she was ‘taking responsibility’ for the scandal, while also acknowledging she was not a behind-the-scenes villain that several reports had suggested.

However, Allison lashed out at the 62-year-old for the ‘weird and uncomfortable’ comedic undertones in her five-minute monologue, and Karl suggested it was time for her to ‘go away and re-establish her connection’ with the people who matter.

Over the last few months, Ellen has faced allegations that she treated staffers with little or no respect and that senior producers allowed and encouraged a toxic work environment.

As she addressed these reports on Monday, she also squeezed in a few jokes.

Ellen’s delivery left Today host Allison unimpressed, however, as she told Nine’s U.S. correspondent Amelia Adams: ‘You could tell she wasn’t comfortable delivering it. She got the tone completely wrong.

‘If that was a male talk show host and he was opening the show to address allegations of sexual harassment and bullying, and he made jokes about it, we wouldn’t cop it as an audience.

‘But somehow because it’s Ellen and she is a comedian that is okay.’

Allison continued: ‘There didn’t seem to be any ownership of it. I mean this was her show, she did say everything has her name on it. That’s when she made that weird joke about her name on underpants.

‘It felt like it [Ellen’s apology] was actually going somewhere, but then there was this slapstick moment.’

Making her frustration evident, she added: ‘Other people have lost their jobs. You can’t say this was happening on your show that you’ve been running for 17 years and for you to be oblivious.’

THE CLAIMS AGAINST ELLEN

APRIL: Ellen staffers’ complain about how they’ve been treated during the pandemic in a Variety report which said producers left them ‘high and dry’

JULY 16: BuzzFeed publishes an article alleging a toxic environment including claims that; 

  • staff were fired for taking leave, including for bereavement 
  • racism caused one employee to walk out of the job on the spot
  • two black female employees were told by a boss, ‘Oh wow, you both have box braids; I hope we don’t get you confused.’
  • staff told not to speak to Ellen if they saw her on set

JULY 31: A second BuzzFeed article alleging more misconduct, this time of a sexual nature 

AUGUST: Executive producers Ed Glavin and Kevin Leman, and co-executive producer Jonathan Norman are all fired

SEPTEMBER: Former household staff speak out, saying Ellen treated them ‘like nothing’ and lay traps like matchsticks to make sure they were dusting ‘every inch’ of her home

When asked for his opinion on the matter, Karl was clearly disappointed as he explained: ‘Ellen has brought me so much enjoyment over the years. 

‘I love watching her, and I love her delivery, but I think that monologue at the start kind of highlighted that she is not as connected as she once was to the people, like myself, who are such great fans of hers.

‘Maybe it’s about her going away and trying to re-establish that connection with the fans and the people who she really always looked after. They came first.’ 

In Ellen’s apology, she said: ‘I know that I am in a position of privilege and power and I realise that with that comes responsibility and I take responsibility for what happens at my show.’

Later, she added: ‘The truth is I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things. Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated.  

‘I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress.

‘And I am especially working on the impatience thing. And it’s not going well because it’s not happening fast enough, I will tell you that.’

The allegations against Ellen include that she oversaw a workplace which fostered racism, sexual misconduct and bullying. She has apologised to staff privately in a conference call.

The show also faced additional accusations of sexual misconduct when dozens of men and women accused Kevin Leman, Ed Glavin and Jonathan Norman of harassment, misconduct or assault.

Leman and Norman denied the claims. They and Glavin were promptly suspended while Warner Bros. launched an investigation.

ELLEN’S FULL MONOLOGUE 

‘Oh boy, welcome to season 18 of the Ellen DeGeneres show. If you’re watching because you love me, thank you, if you’re watching because you don’t love me, welcome! 

‘How was everybody’s summer? Good? Mine was great. Super terrific. I am so happy to be back in the studio. There are a lot of things I want to talk about. I’ve been looking forward to addressing it all directly and unfortunately talking directly to people has been illegal for six months so I a virtual audience here instead, here you all are. You look beautiful and I am sure you smell great, that’s what I am imagining anyway.

‘All right, let’s get to it. As you may have heard, this summer there were allegations of a toxic work environment at our show and then there was an investigation. 

‘I learned that things happened here that never should have happened. I take that very seriously and I want to say I am so sorry to the people who were affected. I know that I am in a position of privilege and power and I realize that with that comes responsibility and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. 

‘This is the Ellen DeGeneres show, I am Ellen DeGeneres, my name is there, my name is there, my name is on underwear… we have had a lot of conversations over the last few weeks about our show, our workplace and what we want for the future. 

‘We have made the necessary changes and today we are starting a new chapter. There were also articles in the press and on social media that said I am not who I appear to be on TV because I became known as the be kind lady and here’s how that happened. 

‘I started saying be kind to one another after a young man named Tyler Clementi took his own life after being bullied for being gay. I thought the world needed more kindness and it was a reminder that we all needed that.

‘I think we need it more than ever right now. Being known as the be kind lady is a tricky position to be in. Let me give you some advice out there, if anybody is thinking of changing their title or giving yourself a nickname, do not go with the ‘be kind lady’. Don’t do it. 

‘The truth is I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things. Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated. I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress. And I am especially working on the impatience thing. And it’s not going well because it’s not happening fast enough I will tell you that. 

‘Listen, I don’t know. I’m a talk show host but maybe some of you know that I was an actress. I’ve played a straight woman in movies so I’m a pretty good actress but I don’t think that I’m that good that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. 

‘This is me and my intention is to always be the best person I can be. If I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I am so sorry for that. If that’s ever the case I have let myself down and I’ve hurt myself as well because I always try to grow as a person. I look at everything that comes into my life as an opportunity to learn. I got into this business to make people laugh and feel good. 

‘That’s my favourite thing to do. That and Jenga. I love that game. And now I am a boss of 270 people. 270 people who help make this show what it is. 270 people who I am so grateful for. All I want is for every single one of them to be happy and be proud to work here. 

‘This has been a horrible summer for people all around the world. People are losing their jobs. People are losing loved ones to a pandemic. People are losing their homes and lives in the raging fires that are going on. There’s blatant racial injustice all around us. I watch the news and I feel like, where do we even begin? 

‘So my hope is that we can still be a place of happiness and joy. I still want to be the one hour a day where people can go to escape and laugh. I want to continue to help the people that we help every day. And I am committed to making this the best season that we have ever had. 

‘So welcome to season 18 of the Ellen Show. I am so glad that you are here. I want to start the new season by saying hello to my friend Twitch.

‘You are not my DJ any more. You are now my co-executive producer. You are such an important part of the show. Unfortunately I had to take the fake DJ equipment away.’

The screen legend was in the Spanish capital to film scenes for new medieval series Glow and Darkness, in which she plays Queen Adelaide of Savoy. 

Wrapping up warm, Joan donned a hooded black padded jacket, which was adorned with black velvet patterns.

She teamed her outerwear with casual black trousers, while she boosted her petite frame with nude peep toe espadrille wedges.

The actress – who married the producer in 2002 – revealed that having to spend more time together has helped their relationship.

Speaking to Hello! magazine from her home in St Tropez, she said: ‘Being in lockdown has made me realise how strong our relationship really is.

‘I love entertaining guests at the villa, travelling and socialising, but that changed and because of the restrictions it’s just Percy and me.

‘The great thing is we’re partners in crime, accomplices.’ 

Joan previously declared she’d ‘settle’ at living til she’s 100 – and brushed off the age difference between her and Percy.

In a recent interview she mused that ‘people make too much fuss about age, which is just a number.’

Speaking to The Mirror, Joan said: ‘I think there’s a big difference between biological age and the age you’re supposed to be.

‘As you know, Percy is somewhat younger than me. At first people would always say, ‘What are you going to do about the age difference?’ I’d say, ‘Well, if he dies he dies!” 

‘Will I outlive you all? No, I don’t want that.’

She has been flaunting her 44lb weight loss in recent weeks.

And Rebel Wilson continued to show off her slimline physique, as she pumped petrol into her Mercedes G-Wagon at a gas station in West Hollywood on Wednesday.

The Australian actress, 40, looked casual in a zip-up Nike hooded jacket which she had styled with a pair of form-fitting gym leggings and white trainers.

Rebel followed state regulations by sporting a face covering, and also wore a pair of cat-eye sunglasses and carried a Louis Vuitton purse in her hand.

She wore her blonde locks pulled back into a low ponytail, as she appeared to have just left a work out session before her trip to the gas station. 

The visit comes after the comedian declared in January that she was making 2020 her ‘year of health’.

As part of her diet and exercise overhaul, Rebel has lost more than 20kg (44lbs or 3.14st) and revealed earlier this month that she was just three kilograms (6.5lbs) away from reaching her goal weight of 75kg (165lbs or 11.8st).

At the time, she said that while she still treats herself, she’s found ways to indulge that don’t necessarily involve food.

‘Remember though girls, you still gotta treat yourself. I just do it with food now only once or twice a week… and substitute bubble baths on alternate nights,’ she wrote on Instagram on October 5.

According to a report by People in June, Rebel’s remarkable transformation is partially down to following the Mayr Method diet plan.

A source told the publication she got ‘amazing results’ by changing her eating habits while staying at the Austrian health and wellness retreat Vivamayr last year, and has continued to follow the plan.

What a transformation! Rebel has been on a health and fitness journey this year, losing more than 20kg (44lbs or 3.14st). Pictured in Monte Carlo recently

The Mayr Method is an approach that eliminates food intolerances, reduces sugar, encourages eating whole foods slowly, boosts the immune system and reduces inflammation.

‘She exercises with a personal trainer up to six times a week, goes on walks and is trying to up her protein intake nutritionally,’ the source added.

‘I know she’s also been working on conquering her emotional eating patterns of behaviour.’

It’s not the only change Rebel has undergone recently, as it was revealed last month that she’s dating Anheuser-Busch brewing heir Jacob Busch.

She also called Charles ‘the cutest’ after he tended to her while she was unwell last weekend, giving her some products to freshen up. 

Prior to her romance with the builder, she was in a relationship with Mark Wright, 33, on TOWIE, and also dated jailbirds Joey Morrison and Jake McLean.
