Degeneres Banned From Using Her Own Sitcom Clips

U.S. chat show host ELLEN DeGENERES has been refused access to clips from her own former sitcom. The comedienne asked ABC/Disney bosses to let her show a segment from her old programme, which featured a guest appearance from actress Mariska Hargitay - and was told the footage was off limits. DeGeneres, who hit the headlines a decade ago when she 'came out' as a lesbian on the sitcom and in real life, was hoping to use the clip to show Hargitay when the Law + Order: Special Victims Unit star made her debut on the Ellen show on Friday (14Sep07). she was a guest star on my original sitcom and it was a hilarious scene... I wanted to show it today... but Disney will not let me have any clips of my show to show, unless we pay a whole lot of money. "It was my show... We'd be advertising it, it would help them." Instead Ellen showed a clip of Hargitay in soap Falcon Crest, acting alongside the late Jane Wyman, who died earlier this week (beg10Sep07).

Ellen should be allowed to use anything that She has previously worked on. Jeese. America says Freedom is, not Freedom is and We will restrict the hell out of Ellen, because She is Successful and Happy! Channel 4 already restricts Her enough.Everybody Loves Her! Give Her some room to be creative!
