Blind Item #1

For years, this B+ list celebrity/comedian/host has been thisclose to losing that host job. The end could come this week because she didn't release a statement supporting her boss. If you thought the purge on the show was awful a few years back, you have seen nothing yet.

I absolutely adore Illeana Douglas. I loved her in Happy Texas. I always wondered why she never got more roles. Now I know why. Her and Catherine Keener are my favorites. I hate Sharon Osborne now. One thing this whole movement is showing me is who is such a fake when it comes to causes. They will stand on a stage with their favorite Democratic candidate talking about women’s rights and then stand behind and with sexual predators. Way to represent.

Good guess. I kept thinking Aisha Tyler, but she’s gone.

Unfunny, ugly, fat ginger. I just don't get why a bunch of annoying crones jabbering about nonsense ever became a thing on daytime TV.

+1

its for the daytime crones at home

BestMan said...

They are horrible to watch, and it would be the same if it were men. Its the quality...

GoogleSleuth said...

Okay, so everyone keeps referring to the “convenient timing” of this hit piece, but Ronan gives no fucks and has no agenda other than his own. The timing may have been planned by the higher-ups, but I wouldn’t say that discredits anything in his article. Just my two cents, for whatever it’s worth.

J said...

Sorry, but the rule is be!ieve all women. Period, no exceptions.

If some woman walks up and tells you Moonves killed her and dumped the hody at sea, who are you to deny her lived experience?

Cail Corishev said...

@GoogleSleuth, yeah, it's similar to what they're trying with Gunn, pointing out the political motivation behind his outing, as if A) that changes what he said or how we should treat it, or B) *any* of the firings over outrage in the last decade weren't politically motivated.

The timing has nothing to do with whether it's true or not, or how his employer should handle it. Farrow has obviously been working on this piece for a while, and it's based on things known in the industry for years, just like the Weinstein piece.

They're going to have to learn that butthurt isn't a persuasive defense.

DDonna Tarttty said...

People have been talking about this Moonves piece from Farrow for six months.

We thought it was a long con when Farrow's Trump/Playboy Playmate broke, but nope. That was just throwing a bone to the rabid left, on either side of the Weinstein/Moonves take downs, so Farrow doesn't look partisan.

hhstarr said...

Sorry, but regardless of motive, farrow vetted each claim. There were at least 2 or 3 people per would substantiate each claim, including Scorsese, who is not a woman. It's not about believing each woman- I am an extremely skeptical person on motives of people and not a big fan of #metoo because a lot of women use their sexuality to their own benefit, but locking a woman into your office, forcing yourself on her, and then firing her from a gig and trying to get out of honoring a contract out of spite just because a woman has morals is shitty. Sorry, I believe this one.

J said...

hh, of course. You have to believe every one. Remember when Matt Damon said there were degrees of offense? Minnie Driver -- our deepest thinker -- said no there aren't. That settled the question.

Jane Hanoi said...

Sara gilbert
Sherly underwood
Or
Eve
None have given statements yet that ive seen....

Moonves/cbs/chen/hollywood knew this was coming. Its been hinted at for months!! Since the whole metoo thing started. He/cbs has already been planning their response for as long. Has little/nothing to do with redstone.
Theres already not alot in the news about it cause he is still a very powerful figure and the head of the cbs empire. Weinstien was already on his way down & out.... practicaly bankrupt ... so he was an easy take down.
Gunn ....my uess is disney has real evidence/ suspicion of something and cut their losses with him rather than risk that franchise.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Was there a purge on The Talk?

MDAnderson said...

Holly Robinson peete and Leah remini were fired

J said...

Poor innocent surgically-unaltered Julie Chen.

Sara, Making It Work said...

No, there was not a purge a few years back on The Talk. The only host change was Aisha Tyler being replaced by Eve not long ago. Otherwise, it's been the same hosts since the beginning.

This is a different show. I assume still CBS...

MDAnderson said...

This is Sheri Underwood

Sara, Making It Work said...

Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini were not on for very long. I'm skeptical that this is about that...

Sara, Making It Work said...

Ok, @MD, you're probably right.
Enty is playing loose with numbers again. They cast purge was more than a "few" years ago.

I read Selma Blair is supporting James Gunn.

#MeToo indeed

GoogleSleuth said...

I don’t think that’s the case, @Ddonna. Ronan leans far more left than anything, and he kind of just does his own thing. He investigates what he perceives (rightly so, IMO), as wrong-doing. He pushes back when the mainstream media outlets say no, because he knows he has a story to tell, and that story believes to be heard. If you can’t tell, I love the guy, lol. But I think while the timing might be political, the content (or at least the intentions behind the content) is not.

GoogleSleuth said...

And he’s an exceptional journalist. His sources are impeccable, having been checked and substantiated several times over.

Random1010 said...

No you don't believe every one! As a woman, that offends me! We can be an evil, devious bunch. And you're telling me not a single one hasn't come forward with a #metoo story that isn't just pissed at an ex, getting her dormant name back in headlines or just plain ol' IN the headlines?! Wow. Good men just might go down because of bullshit like that and people like you.

That being said... not defending the creep, just annoyed with the dumb ass comment.

AbbyRock said...

@J, Chen said she had plastic surgery to make her eyes less ethnic.

Chen supported her husband, so she's safe. Ugh, Julie is an agra though- she acts morally superior. The situation reminds me of Kathy Lee with her "love machine" Frank Gifford when she found out what kind of man he was.

Sd Auntie said...

Less married Julie after leaving his wife for her. Then promoted her to various shows and she benefitted from her relationship to the boss. Mr LM cannot keep it in his pants and continued with the creepy behavior and has now been outed. Hope the fairy tale couple both take a hike into retirement land so do not have to change the channel every time I see her. Never liked her and never will. Homewrecker

J said...

Sorry, Random, but who am I to second-guess a sage like Minnie Driver?

sandybrook said...

If Moonves has to quit, Julie's next out the door. Her whole career was created for her by him.

@BestMan

"They are horrible to watch, and it would be the same if it were men. Its the quality..."

Would be???? It IS the same! Ever watch Fox and Friends? Okay, they might have a token starving blond, with huge teeth, on there but it's mostly men over-talking each other and sounding like braying jackasses.

Dannette said...

@Random1010 is unfamiliar w/sarcasm.

Terri said...

Eve is new so it's not her
Sara Gilbert is an exec producer so it's not her
Julie is married to him
Sharon Osborn is a puppet and made a statement of support

Sheryl Underwood is the only one left

Cee Kay said...

@J Can you just go away and quit being a complete tool now? Thanks.

Ronan's article makes a whole lot more sense if you visualize "coincidence brackets" around the names. It's like, "of course 60 minutes was a great empowering work environment (((Leslie Stahl)))..." :)

Viking Song said...

J get counselling for your mental issues. Maybe then you could actually get laid..

J said...

How's the compound, Viking Song? Any news on you guys getting the race war started?

Theodore Wolf III said...

If he is out, big brother is over. He keeps that show going because of his wife.

AbbyRock said...

I hope so, Theodore. Reality tv has been the death of network programming. cheap to produce and just plain crap.
