Ellen Cancels Taping

10/18/2007 5:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ellen DeGeneresEllen DeGeneres has canceled the taping of her show today.

This comes days after an emotional week for Ellen, who broke down in tears on Tuesday's show, as she recalled how Iggy the dog was ripped away from her hairstylist's home by a rescue organization.

The show issued this statement: "Ellen is taking a long weekend and will be back with a new show on Tuesday."

We're told that Ellen's producers asked country crooner Keith Urban -- who was previously scheduled to appear on the show -- to perform for audience members who had already arrived for the taping, not knowing it was canceled.

She had no right to give Iggy to someone who had not been approved by the rescue organization!

I've alway adored Ellen but that was quite the public meltdown. Did she forget to take her meds?

This is just out of hand. Ellen should have read the fine print. The adoption agency only cares for the welfare of the dog... as they SHOULD!

If you don't like the rules you agreed to, then don't agree to them in the first place.

Ellen needs to grow up and move on.

Oh, poor baby. "Emotional week" for a spoiled celebrity who can't admit she was wrong. How about the women who lost their shelter? And the kids who got the dog taken away when it was all ELLEN'S fault for not reading? It's a hell of a lot more "emotional" for those parties..wouldn't you say?

Ellen is being a big DRAMA QUEEN and making too much of this ordeal. It is not such a big crisis for her to have to cancel taping of her show!!! Get over it ellen and buy Ruby another dog! Iggy has moved on!

Apparently this was the SECOND dog Ellen "adopted" recently that didn't get along with her cats. For heaven's sake, can't that be determined beforehand?!

Elen is trying to have that shelter shut down because she is pissed at the owners, I don't believe for a secound that Ellen is that broken up over a pet that was never harmed or in any danger of being miss treated all this behavior by her willsurely reek havoc on that shelter just as Ellen wants to happen.

Seems on the news today that Ellen and her people made quite a few threats to the mutts people and tryed to use her status to get what she wanted. Doesnt seem to be working so shes probably very upset. I know someone who was a helper at the big awards show and was assigned to ellen ...seems she was not very friendly and thought she was quite something. Point being she may not be so easy to deal with as she appears on her show ? I dont know ,

Ok, everybody needs to understand. What Ellen should have done if she wanted the dog to go to those people, she should have taken the dog back to the place and tell the woman that the dog was to much for her and she wanted to give the dog to her hair dresser. and explain that her hair dresser is a really good woman and have a really good family, you know explain everything and then the people at the dog place would have let the woman come up there and sign papers for the dog. Ellen should have done everything right from the beginning and it wouldn't be such a big deal as it is now. The woman at the dog place said it right, Ellen gave the dog to her hair dresser and what if the hair dresser got tired of the dog and gave it to someone else and later on they can't find the dog and the dog might end up tied up to someone's tree outside somewhere. Ellen and everyone that is behind Ellen need to get over because she signed the papers and the agreement, so since she didn't follow by the rules, she lose.
