THE END OF ELLEN! Just a little under a year after several employees accused Ellen DeGeneres and her staff of bullying, The Ellen DeGeneres Show is set to be binned after nearly 20 years on the air. Talking to The Hollywood Reporter recently, Ellen, 63, confirmed the news, saying, “When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged – as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge any more.” But while Ellen’s statement alludes to an ending that’s on her own terms, many believe it’s due to dismal ratings and the host’s tarnished brand following the bullying scandal that shocked the world. In July last year several former employees spoke out about the alleged racist abuse, sexual misconduct and intimidation they were subjected…

the queen begs harry ‘ bring archie home’

For the most part, the Queen has been keen to stay out of the drama involving the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their crusade against Prince Charles and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Of course she knows that Charles barely knows his grandson, but now the whole world does, too.” BACKLASH Indeed, royal fans posting online…

The Sussexes – and no doubt their dogs Guy and Pula – are on high alert after it was revealed a black bear is stalking their community. Insiders say they’ve built reinforcements around Archie’s coop full of rescued chickens – made famous during Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah Winfrey – to keep them safe from the predator locals have nicknamed “Carlos”. An application to euthanise the bear was denied, with locals explaining he’s only trying to fatten up before hibernating next winter.…

meghan’s baby shower drama

While she was pregnant with Archie, Meghan caused an uproar when she held an over-the-top baby shower – inviting A-list friends to a luxe hotel in New York at a cost of $500,000. But it seems the duchess hasn’t learned anything from her mistakes and is planning another luxury celebration for her daughter! The guest list reads like a who’s who of Hollywood – Oprah, Beyonce, Serena Williams… and is rumoured to be costing close to $1 million! Critics suggest the move is tone-deaf – with many countries still in COVID lockdown – but Meghan doesn’t seem to care. “She’s so happy she can revert back to her LA roots rather than following stuffy palace rules,” an insider tells.…
