Blind Item #3

This network has long shown it only cares about making money and doesn't really care about #MeToo. Even though a star was given a ton of money in a wrongful termination complaint they still will do everything to defend the serial cheating married star of this show because advertisers love it.

Weatherly-CBS

I'm not advocating adultery, but does #metoo cover cheating spouses now?

Guesser said...

@J,Dushku wasn't given that kind of $ for just being hit on. There is way more to this that may never come out.

Humor Me said...

@J - don't believe so...
#Metoo arose from the Weinstein scandal - sexual abuse in the workplace.

J said...

I didn't gather that the cheater was the same person as necessitated the payout, which changes things. I thought the implication was that people who cheat on their spouses should be fired as a general policy.

Jimbonius said...

Well really, what did you expect when you were cast on a show named "Bull"?

j/k

Dushku is a Mensa member, beautiful, and now even more stinking rich!

Michael Weatherly & Les Monves both CBS... CBS clearly doesn’t give a flying fuck and I’m sure there are plenty of other stories that haven’t come out yet.

+1 MD, that's a perfect match for the blind. At least Dushku finally got a good payday after all the pigs and monsters she's had to deal with over her career.

Vita said...

Would love to have the details of the weatherly case public...let the the audience decide how protected he should be fired
Happy Eliza got some justice

I am glad Dushku got a big settlement against that show.

Dushku is also known for sleeping with her married boss.

Dushku was a rape victim on a james cameron movie @ 13, she takes no s*** now.

Note that Weatherly's former female costars, including the independently wealthy Pauly Perrette, all posted positive comments about him. No one who has worked with Dushku has posted that they would like to repeat the experience.

Fuck you Louise Louis

Brayson87 said...

@Louise, Holy sh!t, are you really suggesting that Pauley Perrette is a good character reference? Have you ever read this site?

Unknown said...

Um, yes you do get $9 mil for being hit on, then complain, then get fired for complaining when you make a few million. She was wrongfully fired, the studio "owned" it and paid out. This is California, not S.A.

Gnarfcat said...

Yeah Dushku wasn't paid 9 milion because she was hit on. She was paid 9 million because CBS made her life unbearable and gaslighted her after she made her complaint. And other people who support Michael Weatherly all work for the same company. They aren't going to bite the hand that feeds them

Apparently it was sexist verbal abuse and bullying on the show, not just from Weatherly but others , the set is like a frat boy outhouse and it was all on film out takes which Eliza got a hold of so there was no 'he said-she said' .

It would have all gone away quitely with an NDA, except Weatherly and the producers started bad mouthing Eliza on social media trying to trash her future career and she hit back big time. I'm not sure if the big payout came first or after Eliza made it public but I think she already had the millions in the bank when they started being smartarse and she open the whole can of worms for the public to see.
