Ellen DeGeneres is, allegedly, returning to standup comedy next year.
According to Star, Ellen DeGeneres has no plans to take a break from showbusiness contrary to what her critics have been saying.
Instead, she will focus on making people laugh by doing standup comedy after Ellen Show wraps up after the next season.
“She’s determined to make a comeback and redeem herself. The idea of beginning fresh is very exciting to her. She wants to get back to her roots and do more standup and perhaps a streaming special or a podcast,” the source said.

The insider also claimed that DeGeneres believes she had a good run on Ellen Show. Even though her final years were packed with criticisms and backlashes.
As such, the comedian, allegedly, wants all her supporters to know that she will be back.
DeGeneres has not opened up about her plans after she leaves Ellen Show. So, there’s no way for a tabloid to know all these details.
By the looks of it, the tabloid is just making up stories about the funny woman.

Meanwhile, Portia de Rossi’s wife also made headlines recently after Rosie O’Donnell weighed in on last year’s controversy involving the host.
During her interview on The Jess Cagle Show, O’Donnell was asked if being called “Queen of Nice” had a negative effect on her career. After all, Ellen DeGeneres said that being given the same label had some downsides.
“Not in the way that Ellen’s talking about, I think, but, you know, I said the day it came out, look at this the ‘Queen of Nice’ and a couple of years, it’s going to be the queen of lice, the queen of fried rice, you know, the queen of, we don’t like her anymore. I have an understanding of the cycle of show business and kind of what happens in people’s careers and when enough is enough. And oftentimes, people don’t know that, you know, I think I have a, a good balance of both in my life of the importance of, you know, of both. And it’s hard to maintain,” she explained.
O’Donnell also said that she doesn’t agree that it was the label that got to Ellen DeGeneres in the end. Rather, it was a combination of a lot of things.
