I think many people ignored the stories of a mean Ellen for a very long time. I stopped watching her show about five years ago, because she did come off as too confident, willing to make her guests look dumb while she looked in control and laughing at their discomfort. I still wondered if she was a mean boss, but it was only during the pandemic that so many staff, current and former, and then celebrity guests stepped forward to say how mean Ellen DeGeneres really was.No apology was issued from Ellen claiming she is sorry for her mean attitude. She has said she is sorry for issues at the top of the show (and I honestly don’t know exactly what she means there), and it will be addressed. Is Ellen going to become nicer? Are the current producers going to be fired? Either way, humility wasn’t a part of Ellen’s character. Ask Anne Heche. They were partners for years. And Portia deRossi is claimed to be bullied by Ellen. I don’t know about any of that. But we do know too many stories about Ellen’s mean attitude have surfaced that it now needs to be addressed by Ellen herself.
My dad and Walt were beer drinkers. They would hang out together and drink beer while the women cooked a meal. Then they would scarf down the meal, stuffing themselves, and then go an lay on the couches for a nap. When they woke up, they would resume drinking. They were funny when they were drinking, that I remember, but I’m not sure I understood the concept of being drunk. So it was funny to see them after a few beers.One of the favorite past-times of theirs was a game called Aggravation. It is a board game, played with marbles as game pieces, and either dice, or a spinner. Every player had their own color marbles, and the goal was to move the marbles around the board, back to where it started from, and into the “Home” space. As you moved your marbles, other people could jump past you, or land on your spot, causing you to put that marble back into the home space, and you started over.
