PR advises Ellen to quit the troubled show
Ellen DeGeneres has been running her award-winning talk show for 17 years already. However, PR expert Eric Schiffer, Chairman of Reputation Management Consultants, suggested that she takes a break and leaves her show.
“In America, especially within the celebrity culture, memories are short, so she could relight in 24 months. Perhaps not a show, but maybe as a component of a show,” Schiffer told Metro.
“She’s always going to have a cadre of fans that will remain loyal to her and I’m sure she’ll find ways to market it. But I think after being bashed in the teeth and dealing with a hail of fire coming from Warner, she’ll want to be dark for a while. I’m sure she’ll slip back into Santa Barbara and lick her wounds and wait for another opportunity when all this dies down.”
