The dirty little secret about daytime talk shows is how ugly it gets behind-the-scenes booking the biggest guests first, a source revealed exclusively to STRAIGHT SHUTER.
“The rule is very clear, and every celebrity, manager and agent knows it, if you want to be on Ellen’s show, she must go first, she will not follow any other daytime show including Kelly," snitched the insider.
"So if the cast of The Voice want to sit down with Kelly, that’s fine, but Ellen will pass and get you next time you have something to promote,” sources tell STRAIGHT SHUTER. “At the moment, Ellen is being very supportive of Kelly, but do not think Clarkson’s successful debut has gone unnoticed.”
As RadarOnline.com readers know, while there's no denying Clarkson has had a great amount of success with her new show The Kelly Clarkson Show, the gig hasn't come without its drama.
“There were no explanations or niceties — and Underwood’s people just turned Clarkson down flat!” spilled an insider. “Kelly was furious!”
Both Clarkson, 37, and Underwood, 36, have been supportive of each other in public. But sources told Radar the superstars are locked in a fierce behind-the-scenes rivalry!
Now, with a young fresh face in the talk show scene, sources reveal spitfire DeGeneres, 61, who started The Ellen DeGeneres Show in September 2003, is feeling intimidated.
