Dear Ted: I have wondered for a long time now about Ellen DeGeneres and what appears to be her public persona. Is she the true Goody Two-shoes everyone thinks she is, or is there a dark side that she protects quietly? The star and executive-producer of the daytime talk show hit The Ellen DeGeneres Show now in its 10th year and drawing 3.5 million viewers daily, will soon be back on the silver screen. Ellen DeGeneres has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, she prevents herself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Ellen Degeneres is a television host, stand-up comedian, and actress. She hosts the syndicated talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Ellen Degeneres has hosted both the Academy Awards and the Primetime Emmys.
