Debra Messing may have had to report to the principal’s office over at NBC for a slap on the wrist for dissing network cohort Megyn Kelly on Instagram after appearing on her show. According to Page Six, Messing was told to “cut it out” which is something your kid sister says to you when you keep making her slap herself in the face. But it’s also apparently something that NBC bosses say to their talent if they step out of line. Page Six reports:
While NBC insiders defended Kelly’s comments as “tongue-in-cheek,” Messing got a stern warning.
One exec told us, “Debra was told to cut it out by someone high up in the NBC Entertainment division run by Bob Greenblatt, via her agent or publicist.”
Debra’s rep was asked about the incident but declined to comment. A source close to the actress however denies that Debra got detention and claims that NBC fully supports Debra and is totally going to vote for her for Homecoming Queen. I bet another source for the actress is the one who wrote “MK Sucks” in the girl’s bathroom on the third floor of the science building and started the rumor that Megyn let Susan Sarandon finger her at Becky Adams’ kegger last weekend. Meanwhile, a source for Megyn is probably plotting an elaborate prank which involves bleach, a bottle of Clairol #8 and a cucumber. If these two don’t hurry up and bury the hatchet, NBC Prom is going to end up being a total blood bath!
