    Ellen DeGeneres Says Goodbye to Fame

    In a surprising announcement during her Ellen’s Last Stand…Up tour, Ellen DeGeneres revealed that she’s decided to retire from the limelight. This farewell will be part of her final shows, set to be filmed for an upcoming Netflix special.

    The revelation came during a Q&A session at the Luther Burbank Centre for the Arts in Santa Rosa. When asked by a fan if she would consider returning to movies or Broadway post-tour, DeGeneres responded bluntly, “Um, no. This is the last time you’re going to see me. After my Netflix special, I’m done.”

    Even though her fans begged for her to reprise her iconic role as Dory from Pixar’s Finding Nemo and Finding Dory, DeGeneres humorously quipped, “No, I’m going bye-bye, remember.”

    DeGeneres embarked on her Ellen’s Last Stand…Up tour earlier this year, although she recently cancelled four dates. These shows have also served as a platform for her to address the misconduct allegations that surfaced during the final days of her daytime talk show. These allegations, as reported by the New York Post, included racism, sexual misconduct, and intimidation behind the scenes.

    “Let me catch you up on what’s been going on with me since you last saw me,” DeGeneres said in Santa Rosa, before joking, “I got chickens. Oh yeah, and I got kicked out of show business for being mean.”

    DeGeneres admitted understands her reputation, and she said: “I can be demanding and impatient and tough. I am a strong woman. I am many things, but I am not mean.” Reflecting on the public backlash, she added, “I used to say, ‘I don’t care what people say about me.’ Now I realize I said that during the height of my popularity.”

    Her tour continues through August 17, offering fans a final chance to see her live. Whether she will return to the limelight in the future remains uncertain. For now, Ellen DeGeneres is ready to say goodbye, remaining unapologetically herself until the end. And we congratulate her on her journey for so many years in the entertainment industry.
