Oprah, please pass the tissues!
The Ellen DeGeneres Show will end its run on May 26 after 19 seasons. However, Oprah Winfrey was one of Ellen DeGeneres’ final guests before we said our goodbyes.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show Final Episode
Oprah’s long-running talk show ended in 2011 after 25 seasons, so saying goodbye to a show was nothing new for her.
At the end of her visit, Oprah told the audience, “I know what it’s like to have only a few days left,” because she saw the entire staff backstage.
She carried on, saying, “When I saw your staff, it reminded me of what it’s like to have a large group of people who have become part of your family. For the past few years, this has served as your primary residence.”
Oprah Winfrey thanked the team for their “great job” and “for making this show what it is for 19 years” at the backstage celebration.
Asked if DeGeneres had any thoughts on the matter, she replied: “Yes.” “I’m crying because seeing your staff reminded me of how it feels to have so many people who have become like family to you over the years.
For the past few years, this has served as your primary residence. Ron, the audio guy who mic’d me today, has worked for you for 19 years. I was chatting with him. He told his wife last night, “You know, I just wanted the kids to finish high school.” His children have now completed their college degrees.”
A final word: “With a show like this, families get to know each other and build relationships. As a result, hundreds of people who are rooting for you and helping you achieve your greatest potential call it their home.”
According to reports, Jennifer Aniston, Billie Eilish, and P! nk will appear in Thursday’s finale episode.
The 68-year-old author and philanthropist also inquired about DeGeneres’ emotional state as her show’s final episode approached. Ellen assured him that she was feeling fine today. “Jay Shetty and I have been talking a lot. He has been assisting me and telling me to enjoy myself. You can have emotions, but take pride in what you’ve accomplished.
When asked about her feelings surrounding her final tapings, Allen said that she was “trying to stay present and feel all of it.” She also revealed that she was consulting author and purpose coach Jay Shetty.
According to Ellen, she was inspired by Oprah’s story and acknowledged that she was not alone in her struggle, even among other females in the audience.
They joked about future projects like “Real Ex-Talk Show Hosts of Santa Barbara” and “CSI: Montecito” at the end of their segment. The two hosts are also neighbors in Montecito, California.
In her final words to Oprah, Ellen thanked her as “my mentor, my friend—thank you.”
Mila, 38, was introduced as the second guest by the Finding Dory voice actress, who gave the host a hug upon her arrival.
