The New York Daily News has a report today that says the reason Nancy O'Dell left Access Hollywood with two more year remaining on her contract was that she couldn't handle Billy Bush anymore. A source said, "The atmosphere at Access Hollywood is like walking on a landmine because of Billy. He throws tantrums and tirades and oftentimes for no apparent reason. It was one of several things that had Nancy at her wit's end after 13 years."
Apparently Nancy complained to her boss but that never worked because her boss and Billy are partners on Billy's radio show. I'm guessing that Nancy just said f**k it because she knows she can get another job that probably pays close to the same amount and why should she take a bunch of crap from a guy no one really likes. You have to admire her for just getting up and walking away and leaving a lot of money on the table.
