It seems like Ellen Degeneres is one her way out after many staffers complained of being subject to a ‘toxic” workplace culture while working on her show.

On Saturday it was reported that Ellen wanted to shut the show down as a way to preserve her brand in the long run.

“She feels she can’t go on and the only way to recover her personal brand from this is to shut down the show,” an insider told the outlet on Friday. “The truth is she knew what was going on — it’s her show. The buck stops with her. She can blame every executive under the sun — but Ellen is ultimately the one to blame.”

Now we’re learning that Late Late show host James Corden could be brought in to replace Ellen by TV execs.

Now insiders at the show’s network NBC claim that Corden, 41, was seen as “the long term successor” to Ellen long before scandal hit the seemingly squeaky clean host.

“James Corden was being eyed for Ellen’s job in the long term before any of this came to light.

“Now this shocking new development places a spotlight on the next step.

“James and his team have been trailblazers in modern TV, taking the once considered graveyard chat show slot into a cutting edge format with huge online, social media and global recognition.

The Internet thought it was funny Corden may replace Ellen considering he has somewhat of a reputation of not being a nice person in real life.
