I told you…. it was TOO SOON to resume production. And this proves my point! Test all you want, but that is NOT going to stop the virus from spreading: what WILL stop it is quarantine, wearing masks whenever outside of your home, and adhering to CDC guidelines.

Why am I not surprised. I was hoping that production could hold out until Christmas before an outbreak occurred on set.

Way too soon and the productions *Y&R, B&B are haunting-looking including Nikki’s wig. It’s like the twilight zone. There are riches of reruns, classics to run with current at-home intros by the stars. Keep doing that, and stop terrorizing viewers (you can’t even hear the actors) and putting actors lives at risk.

Relax people. They do NOT let ANYONE into the areas if they test positive. You get treated BEFORE being allowed entry and must be negative. It’s fine. Let’s move forward.

WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres Address Toxic Workplace Issues & How She is a ‘Work in Progress’ in Talk Show Season Opener

Today marks the return of daytime’s Ellen DeGeneres Show for its 18th season in syndication.  Ahead of its airing, the show dropped the video of Ellen’s opening monologue where she addresses to the audience at home the allegations that came to light over the summer regarding her, and the toxic work environment behind the scenes of her popular series.

Those allegations prompted an internal investigation by WarnerMedia, which led to the dismissal of several key producers at the talk show.

Previously, Ellen shared that she would address what had happened during the new season, but she did so at the top of its first episode back, and repeated some of the same sentiments she also shared in a letter to her crew and staffers.

DeGeneres expressed  “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”  She was quick to point out that she is turning the page and that “today, we are starting a new chapter.”

Addressing what has been her off-screen behavior vs. her on-air persona, Ellen said: “The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things.  Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated. I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress… I don’t think I’m that good of an actress that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me, and my intention is to always be the best person I can be. And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I’m so sorry for that.”  Within the monologue she shares how she became known as the “Be Kind Lady” a moniker that also came back to bite her during the summer.

So, what do you think about what Ellen has to say at the top of the new season of her show? Do you think this is enough of an explanation to the public? Are you ready to watch her new season? Comment below.
