ELLEN DeGeneres reportedly wants to quit as host of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and has told Telepictures and Warner Bros executives as much.
An insider told DailyMail.com that Ellen is ready to “shut down the show” after many employees have come forward in the last few weeks claiming the work culture there is “toxic.”

One staffer said: “Don't think for a minute anything she has said in that apology means anything.
“She created and then enabled this toxic culture to go on for so long.
“If anyone had come to her or those three vile EPs [executive producers] to complain, they would've been fired.”
