Ellen DeGeneres has hinted her long-running daytime talkshow may be coming to an end.
She told the New York Times in a new interview that she been mulling over her future and has seriously considered walking away from the show in recent times.
However, DeGeneres' brother, stand-up comic Vance DeGeneres, advised her to stay on - arguing the country needs her positivity.
De Rossi describes her wife as someone who is "a bit more complicated than she appears on the show" and possesses a range of emotions.
The former Scandal star is instead urging Ellen to consider switching mediums to host her own radio show or a podcast, insisting, "I don't see the end of her show as her career ending". The show has garnered 59 Daytime Emmy Awards and 17 People's Choice Awards so far. There are other things she could tackle... Netflix will release her first standup comedy special since before her talk show premiered, called "Relatable", on December 18.
"I wanted to show all of me", DeGeneres added.
The Finding Dory funnywoman has been hosting the popular series since 2003, and she recently agreed to a contract extension, keeping The Ellen DeGeneres Show on the air until 2020.
She is trying to decide whether she wants to keep doing her hit talk show or move on to something else. No one is going to raise their voice or not be grateful. There's a tiny, tiny bit of difference, ' she explained.
"I just think she's such a brilliant actress and stand-up that it doesn't have to be this talk show for her creativity", de Rossi said.
"I wanted to show all of me", she said.
DeGeneres, who received a Presidential Medal of Freedom from Barack Obama in 2016, said she is steering clear of Trump, whom she finds upsetting and unsafe. She wants to combine her old self with her new self.
She admitted though that she would love to do another movie and play "someone unappealing" for once.
