Ellen Kicks Off Her New Season With An Apology

Ellen DeGeneres returned to her talk show Monday and finally addressed the controversy surrounding her.

In recent months, Ellen has been inundated with allegations, from creating a toxic workplace to being mean to guests. The star, who fired three executives from her show, said, “I learned that things happened here that never should have happened. I take that very seriously and I want to say that I am so sorry to the people who were affected.”

She insisted that after apologizing and speaking to staff “we have made the necessary changes and today we are starting a new chapter.”

People magazine reports that her wife, Portia de Rossi, was backstage to support her and that the crew applauded Ellen when she walked off the set after taping.
