The talk show host, 63, ha detto giovedì su “OGGI” that she felt the press coverage surrounding the accusations were “misogynistic” e “orchestrated.”
“devo dire, if nobody else is saying it, it was really interesting because I’m a woman, and it did feel very misogynistic,” DeGeneres claimed.
When anchor Savannah Guthrie asked if the Emmy-winner felt “annullato,” lei ha risposto, “intendo, I really don’t understand it. I still don’t understand it. It was too orchestrated. It was too coordinated.”
DeGeneres said she felt confused and hurt above all.
“For me to read in the press about a toxic work environment when all I’ve ever heard from every guest that comes on the show is what a happy atmosphere this is and what a happy place is,” lei disse.
DeGeneres noted that there are 255 employees that make up her show so she doesn’t know “how I could have known” the alleged behavior was going on.
“There are a lot of different buildings. Unless I literally stayed here until the last person goes home at night, it is my name on the show so clearly it affects me and I might have to be the one to stand up and say, ‘This can’t be tolerated.’ But I do wish someone came up to me and said, 'Hey, this is something you should know about.”
The comedian added that she is “not bulletproof.”
“No, I do not have thick skin. I’m extremely sensitive to the point that this is not healthy how sensitive I am. When something is coming back at me that I know is not true, I guess I could take one or two of those shots but four months in a row took a toll on me,” DeGeneres admitted.
She told the Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday that her long-running “Spettacolo di Ellen DeGeneres” will end in 2022 dopo 19 le stagioni.
“Quando sei una persona creativa, hai costantemente bisogno di essere sfidato - e per quanto questo spettacolo sia fantastico, e divertente com'è, it’s just not a challenge anymore,” she told the outlet.
