Katherine Kelly Lang and Richard Reid reveal what Ellen is really like: "She's not that nice"

Katherine Kelly Lang and Richard Reid reveal what Ellen is really like: "She's not that nice"

Two teammates on the Australian reality TV series I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here shared a surprising revelation in the jungle on Wednesday night.

The episode featured some revealing comments from the Bold And The Beautiful star, Katherine Kelly Lang and notorious entertainment reporter Richard Reid while they discussed who they thought the worst celebrity to work with was.

The conversation started with Gogglebox Australia's Angie Kent asking Reid who else was a “moll” in Hollywood.

“Ellen, not nice,” the reporter replied.

“Ellen who?” Bold And The Beautiful star Lang asked to which Reid responded: “DeGeneres.”

Lang was not surprised by this claim, admitting she had “heard that before” about the US talk show host.

“She’s great to watch and on her show and everything, but I think her personality is completely different when you get her behind the scenes,” Lang said.

“I heard it’s hard to work on her show,” Reid claimed.

“Oh, because she’s bossy or something?” the American actress asked, which Reid nodded in agreement.

Kent failed to hide her shock, saying it was “really disappointing” to find out cult favourite DeGeneres had a bad reputation.

This is not the first time rumours have swirled around working with DeGeneres. Over the years the TV personality has had to clarify allegations of being a questionable character to work with off-camera.

“That bugs me if someone is saying that because it’s an outright lie,” DeGeneres said, disarming all the rumours in an interview with the New York Times.

“The first day I said: ‘The one thing I want is everyone here to be happy and proud of where they work, and if not, don’t work here.’"

The talk-show star added about her workplace conditions, “No one is going to raise their voice or not be grateful. That’s the rule to this day.”
