For some reason, rumors of the 41 years-old actress Tiffany Haddish becoming the new daytime tv queen started to surface after Ellen DeGeneres, 63, announced that her namesake show is ending in 2022.
Page Six reported that a Senior NBCUniversal source said that “Tiffany is a favorite; she has humor and empathy in spades. She’s top of the list to get a daytime show – she’s a fresh voice.” This comes after the announcement of the ending of The Ellen DeGeneres Show after 19 seasons.
Tiffany Haddish filed in for Ellen DeGeneres in her show multiple times, but according to the comedian, she is unsure if that was a kind of audition. During an appearance on The Breakfast Club, Haddish answered if she would take over DeGeneres’ role.
According to the star, “I haven’t commented on it because ain’t nobody that gives those jobs talked to me about it,” and “Ain’t nobody say nothing to me about that.” And also “If I could be getting what Ellen [is] getting, I’m definitely [in]. ... But I have goals and things I want to accomplish, especially in the next three years,” she added.
