Well, well, well, look whose “leave of absence” has turned out to be the permanent kind. I can’t say I’m surprised. But I can say I’m taking a little smug satisfaction in watching alleged pervert Harvey Weinstein get fired from a company with his own damn name in the title.
I know, she can barely move the Billboard needle, so how in the hell is she accomplishing feats of job termination? Well, it’s not in the way you’re probably thinking.
The Sun claims Rita Ora was on a Virgin Atlantic flight from London to Los Angeles, and apparently she was such a presence that the skies were VERY friendly that day. A flight attendant named Charlotte Whittingham served Rita on the flight and later gushed about it to her girlfriend. She said Rita was “flawless,” “gorgeous,” and was reminiscent of a “beautiful oil painting.” Charlotte, where were you during contract negotiation time when VH1 gave ol’ Rita the heave-ho in favor of the return of Tyra Banks for the next season of America’s Next Top Model?

Melissa McCarthy better start working on her Bill O’Reilly impersonation. Because if Sean Spicer ever gets fired as White House press secretary, Jabba the Trump is totally going to move his media boo Bill O’Reilly into that position now that bitch is out of a job.
After just two years of wet burping up saliva bubbles of concentrated foolery as a talking head on Fox News, Stacey Dash has been dropped. Some may say that Stacey was fired, but I say that Stacey was given alternative employment. You know that a layer of nervous sweat covered Omarosa’s forehead today as she walked to her new office while half-expecting to find a pink-slip before finding out that she’s been replaced by Dionne from Clueless.
The Hollywood Reporter says that the professional re-tweeter hasn’t been on Fox News since September 2016, and that’s because they chose not to renew her contract. A rep for Fox News says that they decided not to renew her contract because they realized that even she’s too crazy for them and they also discovered that they’ll save a lot of money and get the same kind of commentary if they just replace her with a whoopee cushion full of cold farts. (That is an alternative fact that will probably become a fact fact when Fox News announces that their new contributor is a whoopee cushion full of cold farts.)
Dionne from Clueless is the political mind of our time, so this is a sad day for politics, journalism and the world! But whatever, Stacey doesn’t need Fox News anyway. Why would Stacey want to embarrass herself on basic cable when she can embarrass herself on prime time network television, like she did last year:
Thomas Gibson was suspended from his job and written out of two episodes of Criminal Minds after he allegedly kicked executive producer Virgil Williams during a fight about creative differences, or whatever. It reportedly wasn’t the first time that Thomas lost it on a co-worker. He allegedly pushed a different producer a few years ago. During Thomas’ suspension, the producers were trying to figure out what to do with his messy ass, and I guess they decided that since they don’t work at a pre-school, they shouldn’t have to deal with an asshole 3-year-old shit head trapped in the body of a slightly passable Eric McCormack impersonator. They have kicked Thomas Gibson to the back of the unemployment line.
The good news is we’re talking about Saturday Night Live drama. The bad news is it’s no where near as juicy as Toonces getting a DUI or Dooneese shopping around a solo sex tape called One Night in the Finger Lakes. But it’s still a little dramatic, so I’m on board. If I learned anything from reading Jay Mohr’s memoirs (don’t judge me) about his time on SNL, it’s that cast members spend their summer break wondering if they’ll be coming back in the fall. Apparently signing a 7-year contract means nothing at SNL, because Lorne Michaels can end it if he wants. That happened most recently to Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah. But unlike former cast members who dropped a “fuck“ on live TV, Taran didn’t really see this coming.
