ELLEN'S APOLOGY ‘I'M A WORK IN PROGRESS'
THE HUMBLED TALK SHOW HOST IS BACK AT WORK AND READY TO BARE ALL ON HER ‘TOXIC WORKPLACE’ SCANDAL
Jennie Noonan

Hitting the Warner Bros studio stage for the first time in months, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres kicked off season 18 of her scandal-plagued show by addressing the elephant in the room.

“How was everybody’s summer? Good? Yeah? Mine was great,” the 62-year-old dryly joked, holding two thumbs up. “Super-terrific.”

As has been widely reported, a BuzzFeed News report in July – based on dozens of interviews with ex-staffers – prompted an internal investigation into The Ellen DeGeneres Show. As a result, three of the show’s producers have stepped down amid allegations of bullying, sexual misconduct, and racially insensitive remarks.

During her five-minute opening monologue, DeGeneres – who had been taping the show from her home during quarantine – was speaking to a virtual audience, with faces beamed in on monitors placed in the audience seats.
