No need to send me a thank you e-mail for hitting your eyeballs with the sight of Billy Bush’s feets, snow-covered chest fur forest and hairy pits. The sound of that panty pudding wave crashing has already told me that you’re thankful.
Everybody has reported that Billy Bush’s suspension has already been made permanent and that Matt Lauer has reclaimed his title as the Biggest Douche of the Today Show. Billy was removed as co-host of Today’s 3rd hour after that tape of him grossly giggling over Donald Trump bragging about sexual assault came out. Billy is pretty much done at NBC and an announcement is coming, but Page Six says that he’s not going down without trying to punch out the Peacock.
Page Six says that Billy is looking for his own Olivia Pope to help him mop up the shit puddle that came out of his own ass, but in the meantime, it looks like his people are already playing this out in the court of TMZ. Sources tell TMZ that Billy doesn’t think it’s right that he’s being fired for “guy talk” when many of his dude bosses constantly talk about women while on the job, and some of it was caught on tape. Billy and the other dudes would talk about Gigi Hadid’s legs, and Taylor Swift’s legs and go on about hot chicks etc…. Billy has also been known to bring the creepiness during interview with women. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver put together a supercut of Billy’s creepy “hits“:
So Billy’s logic is that he’s been creepy on the job for years and nobody ever said anything so why does NBC suddenly have a problem with it now?!!
As I posted before, the tape that cost Billy his job was discovered by staffers at NBC after his dumb ass bragged about it at a party during the Olympics in Rio. The story goes that when the tape was found, Access Hollywood wanted to protect Billy so they cut out a few parts that made him look bad. They reportedly cut out the part where Billy the Perv tells actress Arianne Zucker to give Trump a hug. TMZ adds that Access Hollywood was planning to air the edited tape on Monday, the day after the second presidential debate. A few staffers at NBC didn’t like that move and wanted the tape out before the presidential debate, so one of them leaked it to The Washington Post who posted it two days before the debate.
Sources also tell TMZ that NBC is lying about when they found the tape. NBC allegedly got a hold of it many months ago, but decided to wait until later on in the election to make it public. Many NBC executives hate Trump and wanted the tape to cause maximum damage to his campaign, so they waited for the perfect moment to drop it.
Page Six says that Billy is blaming NBC for the tape getting leaked to The Washington Post and he may sue their asses for it:
“He told people at NBC about this tape. What if there was a transcript of the tape, and high-level discussions about when to release it? Which executives were involved, and why did they decide to suppress the tape until October, when they could have aired it in August? Was it an oversight or a strategic decision by NBC to affect the race? Billy was far from the only person at NBC who was talking about the contents of this tape. On-air talent does not make the decision when to air stories like this.”
The way I see it, Billy is probably going to get a stack of cash from NBC no matter what. Either NBC is going to put an extra pile of cash in his goodbye basket after he promises not to sue them, or they will settle with him after he sues them. And Billy is truly stupid, because if he wanted to get paid for saying inappropriate, creepy and dumb shit, he should’ve gone into blogging. I guess Dubya is the Bush cousin who got all the brains.
Here’s old pictures from 2012 of Billy sunning his nipples in Miami, which is probably what he’s going to be doing after NBC officially drops him. Billy now gets to spend his days sunning his nips in Miami and I no longer have to see his face while watching Today in the morning. So this is a win/win for us all!
