Ellen DeGeneres is a scab.
This is the worst decision she's made since hooking up with that lunatic Ann Heche.........
DAVID Letterman, Jay Leno, Jon Stewart and Conan O'Brien all are supporting the striking members of the Writers Guild - but not Ellen DeGeneres.
The TV chat host crossed picket lines to tape her show Tuesday, the day after the union went on strike.
"There's a writers' strike going on, and here in Los Angeles, it's a huge story," she told her studio audience, defending her strikebreaking. (The episode will air today.)
"I want to say I love my writers. I love them. In honor of them today, I'm not going to do a monologue. I support them and hope that they get everything they're asking for. And I hope it works out soon. In the meantime, people have traveled across the country. They've made plans. They're here. I want to do everything I can to make your trip enjoyable and give you a show."
It's a decision DeGeneres may come to regret. On SurgicalStrikes.com, one former, unidentified, writer for her 2001-02 sitcom, "The Ellen Show," reports she treated her writers "like [bleep]."
