I think it’s safe to say that this has not been a great year for Ellen. After the very public controversy that has been surrounding her show, all in the midst of the pandemic, today she announced that she tested positive for COVID-19.
“Hi Everyone,” DeGeneres wrote on her Twitter. “I want to let you all know that I tested positive for Covid-19. Fortunately, I’m feeling fine right now. Anyone who has been in close contact with me has been notified, and I am following all proper CDC guidelines. I’ll see you all again after the holidays. Please stay healthy and safe.”

This news comes a few months after she returned back to the stupid early this fall for the first time since March. And we imagine, with the holidays coming up, production probably won’t be returning until after Christmas.
