Biography

Ellen DeGeneres’ parents, Betty DeGeneres (née Elizabeth Jane Pfeffer) and Elliott Everett DeGeneres had her on January 26, 1958, in Metairie, Louisiana, where she was also raised.

Her insurance agent father and speech therapist mother earlier had Vance DeGeneres before Ellen’s arrival. Both siblings are of French, English, German, and Irish descent.

Betty and Elliot divorced in 1974, leading to Vance staying with his father and Ellen moving in with her mother’s second husband Roy Gruessendorf (a salesman) in Atlanta, Texas.

Ellen began studies at Atlanta High School, from where she graduated in May 1976. She had earlier completed her first years of high school at Grace King High School in Metairie, Louisiana. Done with High School, she proceeded to study communication studies at the University of New Orleans.

In a bid to cater for herself, she would do clerical work in a law firm with her cousin, Laura Gillen, who serves as a waitress at T.G.I. Friday’s, paint houses, and do other menial jobs. Ellen was a shy girl who avoided talking in front of people.

Once when asked to give a public speech, she used some humorous statements to ease the tension. Amazingly, her natural jokes amazed the crowd, and there she realized she had a comic side. Ellen then began performing stand-up comedy at a local coffeehouse. She was in her early 20s at the time.

Ellen made her breakthrough in the mid-80s. She was invited to the Tonight Show by Johnny Carlson. This made her the first-ever female stand-up comedian to sit on the couch and interview guests on her first visit.

After appearing on this show, she became a household name and many top TV shows hosts wanted to host her.

She then appeared on some shows like Larry King Live, the Oprah Winfrey Show, the Tonight Show – Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, among others. These shows made her very much popular, and she was high on demand.

After going on as a guest on the top TV talk shows in America, Ellen decided to go all solo. She hosted her talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2003.

She wasn’t as successful as such during her first year, but subsequently, things started taking shape. The show slowly grew into one of the most successful daytime talk show.

It has millions of viewers, and as of now, it is estimated that a single episode attracts around 4 million viewers.

She has won many awards for her daytime TV talk show, including; Outstanding Talk Show Entertainment, Outstanding Talk Show, Outstanding Talk Show Host, and Outstanding Special Class Writing. By 2012, the show has been awarded about 32 Daytime Emmy Awards, which helped to boost the Ellen DeGeneres’ net worth.

Ellen hosts celebrities, musical perfectionists, and discusses topics of human interests. It is a show that delivers the best to the viewers, winning their hearts in the process.

She always opens with a dance, which has been her signature since the show started. It is believed that Ellen now makes about $45 million a year from her show.
