However, all her efforts have been diverted towards accepting how she has aged in a very graceful manner. She also goes on to say how intends to not let her ego get a hold of her and hence she does not want to lie about her age but accept the truth rather than running away from it.
What Ellen thinks about working on the show
Ellen opens up the the audience about the often unpleasant and toxic environment that she was exposed to as the show progressed. She says that she never denied it but she also does not like to blame it all on a single person.

However, Ellen also continues to speak how she did not leave the show as the certainty of working hours made her life easier. Ellen missed out on moments with her mother as she passed away at a very young age and Ellen did not want to feel the same with her children. Ellen said that she was happy that she could reach home at a specific time to have meals with her family which kept her satisfied.
