Ellen DeGeneres returns to TV with an apology

Last Monday, Ellen DeGeneres returned to screens for the first time after the allegations about a toxic work environment on set.

Ellen DeGeneres opened the show with her typical deadpan comedic tone, but she soon addressed the sexual harassment and misconduct allegations.

The 62-year-old talk show host decided to return to TV after the summer plagued by a toxic-work-environment scandal. During her monologue at the show’s season premiere, Ellen apologized for what happened to her employees.

Also, contrary to the reports in social media and the press, she promised her viewers that she is the person they see on TV. She told her audience that she implemented changes, so they can start a new chapter. The show fired the three show producers who were in the scandal. Ellen DeGeneres said that she took things seriously, and they have made all the necessary changes in the workplace. 

Ellen said she wanted every one of the people working on her show to be happy and proud to work there.

Many people didn’t take her apology seriously

Besides opening her talk show with an admission and an apology that things happened behind the scenes that never should have happened, many people didn’t think that she was sincere. 

Mixed in with the apology were sarcastic jokes about how amazing her summer had been. She wanted to be funny with that comment, but people felt insulted by it. Her former employees thought that Ellen turned their traumas into jokes. Also, she managed to make the situation about her. 

They felt insulted by Ellen’s inappropriate jokes scattered throughout her 6–minute monologue. Many people had come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against her top producers. So, no one thought it’s time for jokes.

Her former employees found it funny that she has a rough summer. People were suffering due to the toxic work environment, so they find it hard to believe that she is the one suffering.

So, her former employees felt dissatisfied with her weak attempt at atonement. However, an employee who works there finds her monologue impressive. It is up to you to decide whether she was sincere or not. And whether you will continue to watch her talk show.

What happened at the Ellen DeGeneres show?

During the summer, the backstage turmoil undermined the Ellen DeGeneres show and its public message of spreading happiness and kindness. The reports of a toxic workplace have included criticism that Ellen is mean-spirited.

Ellen has already apologized in an email to her staff back in July. She said that she will make sure that does not happen again. Ellen made a further apology in a video meeting in August.

And then, the show fired executive producers Kevin Leman and Ed Glavin, and co-executive producer Jonathan Norman.

Several former employees had experienced racism on the show and some had been fired for taking bereavement days. We are still hoping that Ellen had no idea of this stuff!

Miley Cyrus opens up about her alcohol addiction

The Disney alum has always been open about her experience with alcohol and drugs. And like many people during the pandemic, she has gone through some ups and downs with substance.

In a recent interview with Apple Music, Miley Cyrus has discussed her journey with sobriety, and she honestly opened up about relapsing.

Miley Cyrus opened up about her alcohol problems, saying she stopped drinking again, mainly because she feared she would die at the age of 27. This age was the end for many of her colleagues such as Amy Winehouse, Janice Joplin, and Jim Morrison.

Apple Music’s Zane Lowe asked the singer about her sobriety. Miley Cyrus clarified that recently during the pandemic she had broken her sobriety by drinking alcohol, but at the time of the interview, she was two weeks sober. She admitted that she fell off during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, she has finally realized that she shouldn’t be furious with herself, but ask herself what exactly happened.

Miley Cyrus completely gave up alcohol 

This summer, she said that she did not decide to give up alcohol completely. But the singer has since learned that she is ‘not a moderation person’. She thinks that everyone should do what is best for them. Miley said that she doesn’t have a problem with drinking, but she has a problem with the impulsive decisions she makes once she goes past that level. She says it is not difficult for her to stay away from alcohol, but as soon as she drinks a glass, she loses control. 

That is why she decided to eliminate alcohol from her lifestyle. Miley Cyrus added that she is a disciplined person: That is why it is easy for her to be sober once she decides.

Miley was afraid that she will die at the age of 27

In June, after undergoing vocal surgery, Cyrus shared that she had not drunk alcohol for six months due to her surgery. 

In time, however, she began to wonder where her unhealthy relationship with alcohol came from. The singer realized that the problems in her family played a big part in this. Her parents were divorced and her father took care of her alone, and in the meantime, he had addiction problems.

However, in the last 2-3 months, Miley drank more but began to fear joining the so-called “Club 27”. This refers to a group of musicians who died before the age of 28. Losing a lot of music icons at the age of 27 made her stop drinking. Miley, who turned 28 on November 23, said that she wanted to protect herself.
