I'm Molly, a typical sushi, makeup, and fashion loving millennial girl who just so happens to be blind! I was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa at just 4 years old and began public speaking at age 5. I started just doing motivational speaking, but now I make videos and even model! Even though I can’t see, I know that there are bright spots in everything we face. Let’s find them together. 💕

  • This same thing happened for me with naked and afraid! I did all the interviews sent in all the footage signed contracts etc and they kept saying we’ll call you and then eventually just quit replying to my emails. My best friend actually had signed contracts and flights booked (by the show) for filming and they ghosted her too. Fucking Hollywood man 🙄🙄🙄

  • Well it has already been widely reported how MEAN they (Ellen & her team) are. They have taken a huge hit for treating people poorly! (ck out "Nikki Tutorials" visit on Ellen - she would NOT do it again - she made a video) I stopped watching Ellen over a year ago due to all this. I do not support her anymore.

  • I've literally always felt that Ellen is cruel with her pranks and she talks shit and everyone just laughs because she's gay and rich. Now the truth is coming out.

  • I know this is off topic, but @Molly, maybe you should make a auditory version of a vision board. Having a vision board is a daily reminder so you subconsciously are always working towards that goal. So if you have one that you can listen to every day, I think it might be very useful and motivating.

  • why do u have to go through so many interviews?to make sure the first person didnt miss something and u might be a stalker? does her famous friends have to go through the same thing?what about the people that come on that she said i had to meet do they have to jump through hoops to?i understand to be interviewed to make sure but there is going a bit over bored just to be on a show for 5 min.do they think u have nothing better to do?

  • They wasted so much of your time. you are too nice. That pointless media hold probably caused you financial losses. Just awful conduct on Ellen's team. It's like when Nikki tutorials was on Ellen because of her huge coming out as trans video went super viral but you could see it in Ellen's eyes that she wasn't interested in Nikki or her story at all. And Nikki confirmed it by sharing what happened behind the scenes. I don't know what happened to Ellen. I used to love watching her show. she seems like a shell of a person now. She lost her genuine spark. And now her team is crushing people's spirits left and right.

Apologize to the people they've wronged or treated poorly including you and NikkiTutorials ... Either way if it didn't come true for you it wasn't meant to or wasn't the right time 🤷🏻 seems like you're super happy in so many other ways. So happy for you and your boyfriend. You guys r the cutest and it gives the rest of us hope ...

Her staff may have been emulating what they were seeing from her, although I have a hard time believing someone who looks at everything like it's a party or game as she seems to, would also be cruel and rude like that.

  • I was ghosted from Ellen too. I submitted my friend who moved into a new house (only 6 weeks there) and had a 3 week old baby and 8 year old when they had a flood rush through their house in the middle of the night. they lost everything. They had to get to the roof and wait for help. She had to walk into a Walmart in wet PJs to get stuff for the baby because all there stuff was underwater. Their house wasn’t in a flood zone so they didn’t get the extra insurance if it wasn’t a flood zone. The next day after the flood her husband’s work caught on fire and he was out of a job. I got a call I was asked questions and they asked me if she knew I did this I said “no she didn’t!” They said Ellen would love to help and they would call me back with details and i never heard a thing again.

  • I saw her interview with BTS and she actually asked them if they'd hook up with ARMY... of course they didn't even know what hook up means but instead of letting it go she insisted that it was translated... that's such an inappropriate question to ask anyone but especially if take cultural differences into account! She shouldn't just talk to everyone the way she wants to, it's important to adapt to your guests and be respectful

  • Sounds like you would of been filling a spot if a guest dropped out plus maybe they would of had you on the show if you manager and you had patients. Your blind youtuber who can do a lot more for the blind then get on a talk show. Remember tv shows are now competing with youtubers to get audience attention and create a great DEhave channel hosting other blind and disabled people. Remember the pod cast show you got interviewed on that show Is Blind abilities and dedicated helping the blind and interviewing successful blind people who help the blind and visually impairment or get who people or companies that have products that help the blind. Try to get back on that POD cast show cause they help the blind and have lots of guests who are interviewed. Just because your left Canada dose not mean you have to leave your foundation of who you were when you started this journey of success. Don’t become another import from Canada who wants to be rich and famous. If Los Angeles people think you are as another outsider wants 5 minutes of fame because you think you deserve to be famous then go wait in line cause you might of had it already in the Megan Kelly show. That was about 5 minutes. Keep doing what your doing in youtube but interview more blind people and be more willing to become your own talk show host for the blind and disabled community and maybe someday you be will offer a tv show where you interview disabled people on a real tv but first it starts on your DEhave channel. You did interview people in the past but Shane Dawson who you tried trach what it was like to be blind was a motivational flop for you because it seem lots if followers from that and trying to teach and help Casey Nistat learn to be blind which got you more follower cause teaching both of helped get popular and richer cause their fans followed you but continue teaching people what’s it really like to be blind, help the blind community, help companies who create products for the blind. Help your self not to be a person who want fame and fortune but wants to be a hero and a helper of the blind community. You been interested in fame and fortune and you got it. Now use it for good reasons and don’t use it just to become more famous because being over famous means your just a rich nobody who wants to get on talk shows to be more famous and tries to be on ever popular app and people will get sick of you if you just want to be famous fir being famous and Los Angeles has plenty of those people. Get back to your roots and get involved in your blind community and show it in your channel it will make you more of a better person than you just wanting to be famous and telling people your on a tv show of a persons that hundreds of thousands try to get on. REMEMBER THIS SAYING “Don’t call us will call you” if people want you call them once let them know about you and if they want you then be prepared to wait for them to call you. Don’t forget to stop be annoying and over rated because there is plenty of people to fill in empty spots from people who annoy talk shows who don’t need you” you need them to want you so be successful in a blind DEhave channel as a host and sharing the stuff you don’t show in your channel of the struggles a blind person then maybe a talk show will call you again. There are plenty of other successful blind community members outside in careers that are doing 9-5 jobs and get to work and succeed. Like I said the blind architect who have design buildings he also helped design in renovate lighthouse or the one building San Francisco and the guy is a blind architect and he got interviewed on TV and showed him his success after going blind from a brain tumor that was removed. Remember Molly there’s lots of blind people out there that are really successful sitting in front of the camera promoting products and talking abou but your life is great for you but you have to be a champion of the blind people they can look up to and there’s plenty of blind people on DEhave now so you gonna become so much better than promoting products and sharing your life people want to see the struggles of being blind to hardships about being born the difficulties of being blind a product to use to become a better person see the struggles that you have with the and Uber Lyft. Become the person that you would admire become a blind Ellen and host your talk show and interview blind people and other disabled like you use to be before you become another one of the hundreds of thousands of people who want to Hollywood famous. Try to show your struggles with blindness that the sighted people can’t see or will never understand unless you show real life examples and not just talk about it. You know the struggles and I’m not talking about the girl stuff, makeup , shaving and thing. I’m talking about what all blind people struggles with no matter if we have jobs or careers but ever day behide the seem. Remember the day you did a video of your self alone and had to get coffee , find your phone cause you dropped it, show your self calling Uber and Lyft and recited your self telling the company the frustration your having with drivers. I’m glad you got DEhave famous and all over tiktok talk about blindness but now show the struggles and the behide the Scenes of life as a blind person . Show Your real life don’t hide the struggles be emotional be a hero who helps for the blind community and then maybe you get a talk show to call you to be in a tv show or in a movie as a real blind person and start hosting your own blind talk show. Remember you don’t have to be paid to help yourself. I know product promotion pays the bills but you can do more for the blind community then just talking about your life you had in the past make a new life for yourself. Talk show host are ok but action speaks louder then words.

  • You can't blame Ellen for what the people who book the guests handle the process unless your manager complains directly to her about the situation. I think your manager should have handled it in a more assertive manner on your behalf which may have been difficult due to not understanding the situation as far as how things were done in LA. Regardless, it was unprofessional of the staff on the show to not give you a more narrow time period to work with and then let you know that you weren't going to be on the show. (I know you hate hearing this) but you are young and you have many years for the things on your vision board to be realized. I think you should modify and add a few (like "Have Ellen on MY SHOW"?)
