Portia de Rossi gave an update on her wife Ellen DeGeneres amid the ongoing drama and investigation into claims of a toxic work environment at her daytime talk show.
On Sunday, de Rossi, 47, told a photographer that DeGeneres is “doing great” while out on a walk with her mom Margaret and their dogs in Santa Barbara.
The “Arrested Development” actress tried going incognito in sunglasses, a hat, and a scarf to cover her face, but was snapped by photographers.
When pressed over whether or not DeGeneres, 62, would be continuing her talk show, de Rossi, simply said, “Yes, she is.”
In July, dozens of former staffers came forward with claims of a toxic work environment on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
Shortly after, WarnerMedia launched an official investigation into the show over the allegations, which include sexual misconduct, harassment and assault from top executives.
DeGeneres issued a statement of apology, seemingly placing the blame on other staffers, saying, “As we’ve grown exponentially, I’ve not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done. Clearly some didn’t. That will now change and I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again.”
