In 2014, Boss started working as a DJ on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” He went on to become a co-executive producer and sometimes a guest host.
During the show’s run, when some employees said that DeGeneres created a toxic work environment, Boss stood up for his friend DeGeneres in public.
“Legally, we can’t talk about it too much, but I’ll say this: there was love,” Boss told Us Weekly. “There are, of course, some things to talk about, but from my point of view and many others, there has been love. I’m just going to leave it at that until we can discuss it more openly. Love has existed and will continue to exist.”
This year, as the show was getting ready to end, Boss remembered his time on it with fondness and told Entertainment Tonight that it was hard to say goodbye.
“I know that everything has a beginning and an end, but I think that the closer it gets to the end, the more you start to miss it and enjoy all the little moments that make you think, ‘Well, maybe I’m not ready to say goodbye just yet,'” he said. “But at the same time, this is how things should go, and I’ve said before that I’m just happy for my friend to start a new part of her journey, you know?”
When it was time for “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to end, DeGeneres surprised Boss on air with a touching tribute.
She said at one point, “Well, I don’t want to leave.” She then told about the first time they met, which was at her house for a dance lesson.
“It was like getting to know each other in a hurry… “He was so kind and patient with me, she said. “We just became friends because we were both learning to dance.”
DeGeneres said that the show was missing something when he wasn’t there, no matter the reason.
She said, “I know he’ll look over and make silly jokes.” “tWitch, you know how much I love you. Every day when we say goodbye, we tell each other this. We both tell each other “I love you” after the show. He tells me, “I love you a lot,” and I tell him, “I love you.” So, he will always be a part of my life.”
Boss was moved by the video piece and what DeGeneres said.
“I’ll always remember that you gave me a place where I can just be myself,” he said. He also joked, “I always felt at home, whether I was a real DJ or not.”
“You’re a fake DJ, but you’re a good man,” DeGeneres joked back.
