As expected, Billy Bush has tapped into the ring with NBC and is holding the Peacock down while trying to punch as many dollars out of that bitch as possible. Billy has reportedly been fired by NBC and the two sides are currently negotiating his exit from Today before they make any announcements. And part of that “negotiating” involves using the media to spit at each other. Page Six reports that Billy has hired a high-powered Grossman to help him fight NBC and no the gross man is not Donald Trump. Billy has hired Los Angeles lawyer Marshall Grossman to help him in his battle against NBC. Marshall has already gotten to work and shanked at NBC by saying that if Billy didn’t play along with Trump, he’d be grabbing pussies… at PetCo while working as a part-time cat groomer. Because NBC would’ve fired him.
Billy’s contract with Today is supposedly worth $3 million a year, and NBC may be trying to pay him as little as possible by arguing that he broke the “morality clause” in his contract. NBC News is apparently pissed that Billy never directly told them about the tape. Billy supposedly told Access Hollywood staffers about it at a party in Rio during the Olympics. Billy’s side is arguing that NBC knew about the tape for a while and that many of the higher-ups regularly shoot the shit about hot chicks, and he doesn’t think he did anything different on that tape. Marshall Grossman adds that Billy really had no choice but to giggle as Trump talked about molesting women:
Bush, Grossman says, was an NBCUniversal employee interviewing an NBC star in The Apprentice’s Trump, so he wasn’t exactly in a position to challenge his interview subject.
“If Billy had been passive or responded ‘Shut the fuck up’ to Trump, Billy would have been out of a job the next day,” Grossman, a partner at Orrick in Los Angeles, tells The Hollywood Reporter.
Okay, but what is Billy’s bullshit excuse for telling Arianne Zucker to give Trump a hug after they off the bus? Maybe while on the bus, Trump passed Billy a note that read, “Bushy, you better tell that hottie with the legs to hug me or I’ll grab you by the pussy.” That’s probably what happened.
And if we’re going by Marshall Grossman’s logic, then either way, Billy would find himself out of a job and suing NBC. If he kept quiet or spoke up: fucked! If he played along: still fucked. So what I’m going to take from that is that the universe just really wants to protect our nerves and eyes from the sight of Billy Bush on our TV screens. Thank you, universe!
