‘The Ellen Show’ set resembled life in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’, says former employee

The sea of hate and backlash towards TV show host Ellen DeGeneres has not dissipated in the least. In fact, another former employee has come forward with a claim that working on the Ellen show was like starring in the movie The Devil Wears Prada.

The ex-staffer spoke about his experience on the show during an interview for the Brisbane radio show Stav, Abby & Matt. During the interview, the ex-staffer equated The Ellen Show to be similar to The Devil Wears Prada.

The former camera assistant was quoted saying, “I worked there for a little over a year. It's kind of like The Devil Wears Prada.”

During the course of the interview, the staff claimed, “Everyone is trying to make it to the [end of a] year. It's just a badge of honor to have that and have it on your résumé.”

However, the environment was painstaking and not at all worth the ‘badge of honor’ it entailed, in the long run.

“I wasn't even allowed in the same room as her. Most people are told, ‘When Ellen enters the room, you and your entire crew need to leave’. Sometimes her bodyguards come forward first and you kind of see them and you know to leave and that's it.”
