Kelly Clarkson Staffers Were Left Traumatized At The Talk Show

The Kelly Clarkson Show took over the reputed The Ellen DeGeneres Show last year. One of the most loved talk shows is under the scanner for all the wrong reasons. According to the rumors, the staff workers of The Kelly Clarkson Show have been left underpaid, overworked, and even traumatized due to the toxic work culture.

During the interview with the media outlet Rolling Stones, the ex-worker spoke against the show and its negative impact. “I remember going up on the roof of the stage to cry, being like, ‘Oh, my gosh, what am I doing? Why am I putting myself through this?’

Another former employee revealed to the outlet that they had to meet a psychiatrist for the first time in their life because they “truly couldn’t handle it mentally.”

The ex-worker called the show “far the worst experience I’ve ever had in my entire life,” and said, “It deterred me from wanting to work in daytime ever again. When I say I was traumatized, I was really traumatized. NBC is protecting the show because it’s their new money maker, but Kelly has no clue how unhappy her staff is,”

However, there have been no complaints about the name of the singer Kelly Clarkson as of now. According to a few ex-employees, she is one of the best people on the sets. She behaves with every staff member in a very cordial way.
