The famous talk show host of The Ellen DeGeneres Show assured her fans that she’ll be seeing them again after the holidays and reminded them to “please stay healthy and safe”. She signed her post, “Love, Ellen.”
A spokesperson for Telepictures told ET that they have paused production until next month following the TV host’s announcement. The show received backlash after allegations of having a toxic work environment. Despite the controversy, Ellen welcomed a limited studio audience in October.
Also, DeGeneres has already apologized to the people who were affected by the allegation, hoping that they can still be a place of happiness and joy.
A source told ET, “Ellen has been trying to be as careful as possible when filming and the crew has been working spaced out, getting tested regularly for COVID-19 and they have all been taking all the necessary precautions to keep everyone feeling comfortable and good.”
“Ellen has been safe in terms of trying to protecting herself and others around her from COVID-19 and in her free time other than being with Portia, she was spending time in Montecito with a few friends here and there while wearing masks and distanced,” the insider added. “Right now she’s quarantined at home, feeling OK and is focused on getting better and healthy again.”
