Recently, a source reported that Ellen empire’s “heir apparent” is the sloth lover actress Kristen Bell. We know nobody can take Ellen’s place. She is irreplaceable. But Bell can definitely do a good job. The actress is not only charismatic and popular, she doesn’t have any dirty secrets to hide.
The tabloid also reported that the network executives have started grooming Bell to take Ellen’s place in future. The anonymous source said,
Kristen has been quietly honing her hosting skills. They have been grooming her as the replacement. She is definitely in front of James Corden. They want a woman and no one is funnier or more relatable than Kristen.
Will Kristen Bell actually take over?
First of all, the source of this rumor is not reliable and unidentified. There is no news about Ellen DeGeneres stepping down as the host of the talk show. The show is going on as usual.
Today also reported that Ellen will be back for the eighteenth season. Apparently, the show’s executive producer is the one around whom the most troublesome accusations revolve. Just because Ellen is a bit mean, it is not enough to make her leave the show.
Bell has a pretty busy schedule. The pandemic has already delayed several productions and Bell has no plans to host a reality show in the upcoming future. The list of people who may replace Ellen in future is full of long time hosts that have open schedules.
