It looks as if Ellen Degeneres is getting ready to “hock” a boatload of art for ships of cash amid the summer’s headlines that certainly stained the comedian’s image after reports came from former employees of a toxic working environment.
According to a new report by Bloomberg, citing “people with knowledge of the matter,” the host is “quietly” selling off a flock of sheep sculptures by French designer Francois-Xavier Lalanne. Priced between $500,000 to $1 million each, the sculptures are among a handful of notable works in her collection to pop up at Sotheby’s gallery in East Hampton recently. Some, according to Bloomberg’s source, are already sold.
Ellen Degeneres Comeback?
Degeneres returned to TV Monday for her 18th season, she opened acknowledging the controversy that took place over the summer.
“I want to say, I am so sorry to the people who were affected,” she said. “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power. And I realized that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show.”
Makes you wonder if Degeneres is gearing up for future lawsuits or attorney fees she’ll have to pay regarding some other matters regarding a slice of the pie if you catch my drift. I’m sure the socialist in Hollyweird isn’t too happy knowing this happened under their nose, not even sure if they really cared because they know everything about everyone.
Is this karma for Ellen considering the hypocrisy she displayed on her show for 18 seasons yet the entire time she was doing the complete opposite behind closed doors? Maybe it’s a forced retirement settlement and this could be Ellen’s final season.
