‘Kelly Clarkson Show’ is ‘traumatizing’ workplace run by ‘monster’: staffers

Recent reports suggest that “The Kelly Clarkson Show” has been hit with allegations of workplace toxicity by several former employees, who claim that the talk show host and her executive producers created a toxic work environment.

According to a recent report by The Daily Mail, several staff members of “The Kelly Clarkson Show” have accused the show’s producers of creating a toxic work environment, with some describing it as “traumatizing.” One former employee even referred to the show’s executive producer, Alex Duda, as a “monster.”

The allegations come after a former assistant to the show’s executive producer, Kelly Clarkson’s longtime friend, claimed that she was fired after taking medical leave for a job-related injury. The former assistant, who has not been identified, alleges that Duda told her she would be let go if she took the leave, and that she was subsequently fired.

In addition to the allegations of workplace toxicity, some former employees of “The Kelly Clarkson Show” have also claimed that the show’s producers were not responsive to their concerns about diversity and inclusion. One former employee said that she raised concerns about the lack of diversity in the show’s writers’ room, but that her concerns were dismissed.

The allegations have prompted an investigation by NBCUniversal, the company that produces “The Kelly Clarkson Show.” In a statement to The Daily Mail, an NBCUniversal spokesperson said, “We take all concerns seriously and are working with our HR team to address the allegations.”

In response to the allegations, Kelly Clarkson and Alex Duda released a joint statement to The Daily Mail, saying, “We take the well-being of all our employees seriously and have found no evidence to support any of these allegations. We are confident that we have fostered a positive and supportive workplace.”

“The Kelly Clarkson Show” debuted in 2019 and has been a hit with audiences, winning three Daytime Emmy Awards in its first season. The show, which is syndicated, airs in more than 200 markets across the United States.

The allegations of workplace toxicity at “The Kelly Clarkson Show” are the latest in a string of high-profile accusations in the entertainment industry, including at “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “The Talk.” The incidents have raised concerns about the treatment of employees in the entertainment industry and have sparked a broader conversation about workplace culture and the need for reform.
