Ellen is also juggling her new restaurant plans with the latest series of her self-titled TV show, which she says she continues to work on in the hope of making people "feel good" about themselves and others.
She told Parade magazine: "I think we’ll get a new audience that maybe didn’t watch me because they only watched 'Oprah', and they have a void now. But it’s the same goal whether we have 10 people or 10 million people watching. If we adjust in any way, it’s so we can top ourselves."
On the message she hopes to promote with his show she added: "The world is filled with negativity. I want people to watch me and think, ‘I feel good, and I’m going to make somebody else feel good today.’”
