One of the world's most popular talk shows is coming to an end. Ellen DeGeneres has announced that her The Ellen DeGeneres Show will end after 19 successful years. According to recent reports, Ellen DeGeneres is desperate to leave Hollywood once her daytime variety comedy talk show concludes. If rumours are to be believed, Ellen has stated that she plans to travel to Africa to release her mind in order to save her marriage with her wife, Portia de Rossi.

Ellen DeGeneres leaving Hollywood?

According to a recent Globe report, DeGeneres wants to leave Hollywood and travel to Africa instead. The talk show host is reportedly leaving the industry when The Ellen DeGeneres Show concludes this year. To back up its claim, the outlet cited a source who stated that DeGeneres requires a trip to Africa in order to plan her next move. She allegedly plans to visit a gorilla sanctuary in order to clear her mind and save her marriage.

However, according to Entertainment Times, she is unlikely to leave Hollywood for good, as she has a long list of projects in the works, including Little Ellen and Little Funny. While it is true that DeGeneres owns an African sanctuary, there is no indication that she will visit it once her daytime show concludes. Furthermore, her relationship with de Rossi is still going strong, and there is no indication that their marriage needs to be saved.
