‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ may still get a new host to lead the program into the future, and one Hollywood starlet feels her replacement should go to a talented Latina host for the future.
Marcela Iglesias, known as “Queen Of Hollywood” by her clients and fans is pressing Warner Bros. to hire a Latina daytime talk show host to replace Ellen DeGeneres.
As you know, Ellen’s show is currently under investigation by Warner Bros. for hosting a toxic and abusive environment for its staff and former employees.
Marcela wants the industry not to see this as a loss but look at it as an opportunity to give a Latina female a leading role in daytime television.
As you know, several other celebrities have come out against Ellen including ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ star Brad Garrett tweeted about the toxic environment saying it “comes from the top.”
Lea Thompson cosigned the tweet by responding “True. It is.”
During an Instagram live session with her fans, Marcela agreed with the sentiment, saying, “If what is being said about her show is true then that’s terrible and Warner Media should absolutely move on. I’d also love for them to look at some powerful, beautiful, and talented Latina hosts to take over like J-Lo, Sofia Vergara, or Salma Hayek.”
She continued, “They all have such fun amazing personalities and I think they send a message of how sexy it is to be strong and independent.”
The best part, Marcela even has the chops to do the show and is willing to host the show if the company decides to move in that direction.
Unbelievably, Iglesias moved to Los Angeles 20 years ago and spent the first 10 years working as an undocumented immigrant. But, after years of hard work and surviving an abusive relationship she became one of the most successful talent managers in town.
Marcela now owns a company called, ‘The Plastics of Hollywood’ and entered the world of reality TV with her own wedding with WE tv’s wedding planner David Tutera.
At this point, it’s been reported Ellen is not going anywhere. In fact, one of her executive producers tweeted that no one is going off the air while he is around. DeGeneres issues a statement on the situation, saying she was disappointed in the reports of abuse on her set but didn’t go as far as to quit the show.
If she does, a strong and talented Latina woman sounds like a great idea to us!!
