Insiders familiar with the show culture say the team is worried that the sexual assault and toxic work environment allegations will call the longtime show to call it quits.

'Staffers are texting and calling each other freaking out as they fear Ellen [DeGeneres] will quit or that the show will be cancelled,' the source told Us Weekly. 'The show feels done. It's going to be very hard to turn this around.'

DailyMail.com, can reveal that is telling executives at Telepictures and Warner Bros that she has had enough and wants to walk away from the show

An insider at Telepictures tells DailyMail.com that the host is telling executives at Telepictures and Warner Bros that she has had enough and wants to walk away from the show.  

'She feels she can't go on and the only way to recover her personal brand from this is to shut down the show,' they said. 

'The truth is she knew what was going on, it's her show. The buck stops with her. She can blame every executive under the sun – but Ellen is ultimately the one to blame.'

On Friday, Ellen was nowhere to be seen as her wife Portia de Rossi was pictured out in Los Angeles amid the drama. 

The 47-year-old Australian actress - who has been married to Ellen since 2008 - went solo as she took the couple's three dogs for a walk. 

Portia failed to raise a smile as she shielded her eyes behind dark sunglasses while making her way to her car with the canines.

Executive Producers of the Ellen DeGeneres Show  Mary Connelly (left), Andy Lassner (center), and Ed Glavin have been accused of fostering a hostile work environment. 'If anyone had come to her or those three vile EPs [executive producers] to complain, they would've been fired,' a staffer said

It comes as staff at the Show are hitting back at her for shifting the blame to her executive producers in an apology memo sent this week.

'Don't think for a minute anything she has said in that apology means anything. She created and then enabled this toxic culture to go on for so long,' one staffer, who spoke to DailyMail.com on condition of anonymity, said. 'If anyone had come to her or those three vile [executive producers] to complain, they would've been fired.'

'Inside Telepictures we've had enough of her. She is a phony who does not practice what she preaches,' our Telepictures source said. 

'The behavior of her show executives has been appalling, but [Ellen] is no better. In fact, she is the worst. It's outrageous that she is trying to pretend that this is all a shock to her. The fish rots from the head, and Ellen is the head.'

Our Telepictures insider claims that Ellen 'hates coming to work' and 'struggles to be nice to people and has utter contempt for her audience.' 

'She has been phoning it in for so long, and only staying for the money and celebrity it affords her,' they said. 'We've dealt with her BS for so many years, she's not innocent at all, she's not nice and the show is not filled with happiness.' 

The claims of Ellen's toxic work environment were revealed earlier this month by one current and 10 former employees of the daytime talk show who accused the three executive producers, Ed Glavin, Mary Connelly and Andy Lassner, of 'bullying.' 

Ellen came out with an apology after it was announced earlier this week that her show was now subject to a probe by WarnerMedia which will look into 'staff experiences on set'. 

However our source claims that the backlash may cloud the show's success in the future and it could be time to end things.  

'At this point, there's really no way to save the show from this PR nightmare, so Ellen leaving may be the only way for this entire mess to go away.

'While it is our most profitable show in daytime, we no longer make the money we used to make from the show, as we have to pay her tens of millions of dollars per year to show up.'

The insider says Telepictures will need to develop a new show and star quickly to take over the lucrative timeslot that Ellen currently holds.  

'We thought our problems were with the cast upheaval at The Real, we had no idea that Ellen would implode during quarantine,' they added.  

'She feels she can’t go on and the only way to recover her personal brand from this is to shut down the show,' a source said of Ellen contemplating quitting her show. She's pictured on her show with 17-year-old pop star Billie Eilish

Ellen recently sent her staff a memo in which she wrote she was 'taking steps... to correct' issues with her employees after several complaints and an internal investigation into the supposed bad behavior was launched.

'On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that The Show would be a place of happiness - no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect. Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case. And for that, I am sorry,' Ellen said in the memo. 

BULLYING, RACISM AND A 'TOXIC WORK ENVIRONMENT': THE ALLEGATIONS AGAINST ELLEN

Ten former and one current member of Ellen's staff alleged they were bullied, fired for attending family funerals or taking sick leave, while one woman claimed to have walked off the job after facing comments about her race.

'That 'be kind' bulls*** only happens when the cameras are on. It's all for show,' one anonymous staff member said.

Staff said they were told not to talk to DeGeneres herself while she was on set, and that the day-to-day running of the show was left to producers.

The employees said they did not have first-hand experience of DeGeneres being unpleasant, but said she needs to take more responsibility for how her employees are treated.

However, allegations have mounted from other sources against the host herself - sparked by a Twitter thread from comedian Kevin T. Porter

Calling DeGeneres 'notoriously one of the meanest people alive', he asked people for 'the most insane stories you've heard about Ellen being mean'.

The tweet received 2,600 replies and saw Porter give $600 to an LA foodbank, after promising to donate $2 for every legitimate mean story.

Claims included that staff are required to chew gum before speaking to her because of her 'sensitive nose', and
