Ellen DeGeneres became a pop culture icon and a household name after starting her talk show called The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The iconic talk show debuted back in 2003 and continued to pull in views year after year. It appears, Jennifer Aniston will be the last guest on Ellen after being her first nearly two decades ago.
Daily Mail reports that Aniston will serve as the last guest on the iconic show. The final episode of the long-running daytime series will air on May 26th with Pink and Billie Eilish as guests as well. Having the A-list star visit the show on Ellen’s very last day serves as a bookend of sorts as 19 years ago the Friends veteran was the comedienne’s very first guest.
This will be Jennifer’s 20th time as a guest on Ellen. Other guests that will appear before the finale include Oprah Winfrey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Mila Kunis, Kate McKinnon, Justin Timberlake, Keith Urban, Zac Efron, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, Luke Bryan, Kerry Washington, Brad Paisley and Bruno Mars.
In September, Aniston appeared on the debut of the last season in an all black ensemble. She teared up as soon as she walked out on stage, realizing the show really is coming to an end. Ellen announced in May of 2021 the show was ending following complaints of a toxic workplace from staff on the show that led to an internal probe from Warner Bros.
Despite the all the controversies, her talk show will certainly be missed. Meanwhile, you can check out her latest Instagram post below. Only time will tell who takes over that treasured timeslot and her audience as they search for a new face to entertain them every day. Stay tuned to Thirsty.
