Did Ellen DeGeneresYou want to create a skincare brand as a quick way to make some extra cash. One tabloid claims DeGeneres’ new business was extremely misguided, given her recent scandals. Here’s what we know.
Ellen DeGeneres Makes Major ‘Beauty Blunder’?
The most recent edition of Life & Style reports the launch of Ellen DeGeneres’ new skincare line wasn’t well-received. A few weeks back, the talk show host excitedly announced that she had launched a new skincare brand called Kind Science. People quickly pointed out the irony in the name. “Honestly, it sounded like a joke at first,” an inside source dishes. “And a tone-deaf one at that.”
Public perception of DeGeneres has been negative since her firing as a staffer in April. She was accused of running a toxic office. While DeGeneres has adamantly apologized and worked hard to salvage her reputation, fans aren’t quite ready to buy her new brand. “The reaction to her beauty brand hasn’t been, well, kind,” a tipster confides. “People are calling it a quick cash grab by someone who’s worth $370 million and doesn’t need any more money in their bank account.”
Ellen DeGeneres Getting ‘Bad Press’ Once Again?
As the tabloid said, DeGeneres doesn’t need the money. Knowing that, it’s unclear how this new brand is a cash grab. Will it make her rich? Sure, but we’re certain the profits will pale in comparison to what she already has. So why is she doing this? Well, according to and her co-founder, Victoria Jackson, as they get older, they’re tired of being told makeup is the only way to look good.
“I think it’s important for the industry. When women are getting older, they think to put more and more makeup on their faces as somehow they’re going to look younger. Even though you want to look great as you age, it is important to keep your skin looking radiant. [we’re about] changing some of those misconceptions,” Jackson said. Jackson said that DeGeneres and DeGeneres appear to believe in the products. We doubt they made them for quick cash grabs. Even if it was, it certainly doesn’t seem like DeGeneres has been at all impacted by the latest wave of criticism. She just had the Duchess of SussexOn her show, the negativity seems quite limited.
The Tabloid on Ellen DeGeneres
This isn’t the first time Life & Style DeGeneres’ coverage has been mediocre. The magazine claimed that DeGeneres quit her show last year to have a baby. Then the outlet alleged DeGeneres’ marriage was falling apart since she couldn’t contain her jealousy over her wife’s business ventures. Obviously, Life & Style isn’t a reliable source when it comes to Ellen DeGeneres.
