Portia De Rossi standing by Ellen DeGeneres during TV show drama

James Corden tipped to replace Ellen DeGeneres on talk show following accusations of bullying

On her podcast, the 3PM Pick-Up, Judd and her co-host Katie "Monty" Dimond discussed a 2017 stunt which has resurfaced amid claims of a toxic work culture on the Ellen show.

But just hours after her apology, Buzzfeed News ran an article in which dozens of former staffers alleged that sexual harassment and misconduct by the show's top executive producers was rampant.

In a two-part tweet on Tuesday (4 August), the Smile singer came to the defence of her "friend" DeGeneres, who is now experiencing a downward spiral as a dizzying array of former staff members accuse her and senior-level employees of fermenting a toxic workplace environment. It found that while "not all of the allegations were corroborated, we are disappointed that the primary findings of the investigation indicated some deficiencies related to the show's day-to-day management".

What has been said about the show?

A little over a week later, on 27 July, The Ellen DeGeneres Show was formally placed under investigation by WarnerMedia, but the flow of complaints showed no sign of stopping, although not all of them centred on Ellen herself. "I relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I'd want them done", she added. People reported that it wasn't quite clear what de Rossi meant by #botattacks, but it is clear that Ellen's one and only is coming to her defense.

However, some of the show's previous employees believe the TV host should have been aware of what was going on behind the scenes. "I hear Portia and I are divorcing every other week or having a baby or whatever", DeGeneres said.

Three rescued from Pacific island after writing SOS in sand
Pikelot Island, which is only 450 metres long, is part of the Caroline Islands, a scattered archipelago in the western Pacific. The HMAS Canberra joined the operation while returning to Australia and sailed overnight to reach the search area.

Singer Katy Perry said she "only ever had positive takeaways" on the show. The singer, who has more than 108 million followers on Twitter, shared some encouragement for Ellen on her page.

Perry added, "I think we all have witnessed the light & continual fight for equality that she has brought to the world through her platform for decades. Sending you love & a hug, friend".

Ellen's wife Portia de Rossi also recently spoke out in support for the television host.

Now, actress Portia is standing up for her wife, posting a photo with "I Stand by Ellen" written across it on Instagram on Monday.

You can say that again, and here's what Ellen had to say in her lengthy memo addressing the allegations against her.
