Ellen DeGeneres to quit her talk show?

Los Angeles- Portia De Rossi spouse of Ellen DeGeneres, wants her to quit her talk show.

The 60-year-old comedian and actor has been the host of  ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ since 2003, Ellen extended her contract to the summer of 2020, she was close to declining the contract extension, her wife urged her to turn it down, in order to do something else.

Portia said: “I just think she’s such a brilliant actress and stand-up that it doesn’t have to be this talk show for her creativity.

“There are other things she could tackle.

“I don’t see the end of her show as her career ending.”

However, Ellen told New York Times newspaper; “[Portia] gets mad when my brother tells me I can’t stop.”

Ellen, ‘Finding Dory’ star’s will have her first stand-up special in 15 years, ‘Relatable’, will be broadcasted on Netflix and her brother thinks the programme allowed her to “break out” from her talk show.

Vance DeGeneres said: “After doing the show for 16 years, it’s second nature. She wanted to break out of, not a rut, but a mould.”

Ellen also said, “I wanted to show all of me. The talk show is me, but I’m also playing a character of a talk-show host. There’s a tiny, tiny bit of difference.”

Ellen just wants her audience to go away feeling good and her brother Vance said she is the positive energy the country needs.

Ellen added, “It’s escapism for what’s going on, one hour of feeling good.

“At the core it’s a comedy show. But if it’s not funny, at least it feels good.”
