Wendy Williams Shades Ellen DeGeneres: 19 Years On TV Exposes The Person You Really Are

Wendy Williams isn’t letting Ellen DeGeneres leave TV without doing what she does best–making her opinion on the matter known!

As you may recall, Ellen DeGeneres announced on Wednesday (May 12th) that the upcoming 19th season of The Ellen DeGeneres Show will be its last.

Following this announcement, Wendy Williams addressed the decision on yesterday’s (Thursday, May 13th) episode of The Wendy Williams Show. She starts off her commentary with seemingly innocent praise, claiming:

“Nineteen years is a very good run, congratulations to you, Ellen.”

However, immediately following this acknowledgement, Wendy Williams starts to promptly shade the television star. She states:

“Considering all you’ve been through all those 19 years, including the workplace conditions–which, by the way, I believe she’s leaving because the workplace conditions. You know. I mean, we all know people who’ve worked there, and people who’ve worked here themselves, Ellen.”

Wendy continues:

“And here’s the thing: I’m glad that you thanked your ‘Ellen’ fans, or whatever you call your nation. But 19 years on TV doesn’t change your life. It exposes you for the person you really are.”

Then, Wendy Williams goes on to speculate that troublesome acts take place behind the scenes of Ellen’s show, including “rules” such as staff not being allowed to ride the elevator with Ellen DeGeneres or even make eye-contact with the host.

Then, Wendy addressed Ellen‘s comments regarding her talk show being a positive atmosphere that leaves guests pleased, claiming:

“I’m not sure all the guests are happy. I was a guest. I wasn’t happy.”

At this point, Wendy Williams goes on to speculate that she doesn’t believe Ellen DeGeneres informed her production staff of the decision beforehand, claiming:

“I don’t know whether she told her current staff, though. She seems like the type of person who could come out on stage and announce it to everybody.”

Shortly thereafter, Wendy wraps up her commentary with the following statement:

“Good luck, I know you like to buy houses and do [business] projects–you’ve got pet food, whatever you want to do. You’ve been on for 19 years, we should be so lucky.”
