Things only seem to be getting worse for Ellen DeGeneres! Staffers at ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show,’ guests, and those who’ve simply encountered the star have come forward to allege that Ellen isn’t exactly the nicest person…and the list of accusers is growing larger by the day!
Now, a former waitress turned actress and standup comedienne named Chris Farah, has come forward with a horrible story about Ellen! Farah claims that Ellen, 62, tried to get her (Farah) FIRED! And get this — it was all over chipped nail-polish that Ellen didn’t like. Farah says that in 2014 she was serving Ellen and wife Portia at the restaurant Real Food Daily in Los Angeles, and she thought the meal/lunch went well…However a week later DeGeneres called the owner of Real Food Daily and said that she didn’t like the waitress’ nail-polish. That resulted in Farah being suspended for two weeks without pay. Farah says: “She really went out of her way to try to hurt someone who was beneath her and serving her. You’re going to try to take money away from me for two weeks because you don’t like the way my nails looked? It’s s***ty. It’s not anything akin to her image of ”be kind”. It’s unnecessarily cruel and out of touch, and doesn’t understand the repercussions. It’s a crazy thing to do.”
Recounting the lunch, Farah says: “First of all I thought her demeanor was a little weird. It was like she was taken aback by me in some way. I just remember her being like ‘What’s Christina Applegate having?’ She was also in my section. She ordered that. Everything went down the way it should, and I’m really nice and warm, I was a really lovely server.” On what transpired 7 days later: “A week later my managers were like ‘Chris did you happen to serve Ellen when she came in a week ago?’ I 100 percent thought it was a good thing. She was friends with the owner, and in my mind I was like ‘oh this is going to be a really good thing for me. She wants me to come on her show and serve mini cashew cheeses to the audience in some adorable way.’ My bosses looked at each other and kind of smirked. They said ‘she emailed Anne [the owner] and complained about your chipped nail polish.’ I was like ‘what?’ It had chipped the night before and I didn’t have time to get a fresh manicure after I closed the restaurant at 11pm and reopened at 8.30am the next morning. I probably shouldn’t have had chipped nail polish. But it wasn’t on her food or plate…” ERGH…HOW HORRIBLE CAN ELLEN GET!!!! Let us know: WHAT DO YOU THINK? DO YOU FEEL SORRY FOR FARAH? WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN TO ELLEN?…YOU DECIDE!
