An E! Producer Claims She Was Fired For Airing Eva Longoria’s “You Guys Screwed Catt Sadler” Interview
Fired E! producer Aileen Gram-Moreno filed a complaint against her former employers with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on Friday, according to The New York Times (via Variety). She’s claiming her dismissal was because she allowed Eva Longoria to slam E! live on air at the Golden Globes in January. Eva made it clear she’s in the corner of Catt Sadler, who left E! when she reportedly discovered her male co-host Jason Kennedy made a grip more than her. E! says that Aileen was axed because she sucked at her job. Who to believe? Keep in mind one of the parties involved inflicted the Kardashians on us. Continue reading
As everyone knows, tonight’s Golden Globes red carpet (wait, why isn’t the carpet wearing black too? Traitor ass!) is all about standing in solidarity against the Harvey Weinsteins of the world. The question “Who are you wearing?” was a bad phrase tonight and if a trick dared to ask it, they’d probably get pummeled with stones on the spot.
The entertainment reporter robots at E! had to be reprogrammed to stay away from “fluff” and ask more serious questions, like about Time’s Up. So when Debra Messing strolled up to Giuliana Rancic’s mic, she talked about why nearly everyone was wearing black, and then she dragged the network that Giuliana works for by shaking her head over the Catt Sadler situation. Catt Sadler left E! News because her bosses refused to pay her as much as co-host Jason Kennedy, who made double. Debra got into the gender wage gap issue and took that opportunity to spit on Giuliana’s mic (I wish she did for real) about Catt Sadler.
“We want diversity, we want intersectional gender parity, we want equal pay. I was so shocked to hear that E! doesn’t believe in paying their female co-hosts the same as their male co-hosts. I mean, I miss Catt Sadler. We stand with her and that’s something that can change tomorrow. We want people to start having this conversation that women are just as valuable as men.”
Giuliana pretty much said shit and you could practically see the tangled up macrame plant hanger she called a ponytail shake with nervousness over how to respond.

Now if only Debra slid over to Ryan’s mic and brought up the rumored sexual harassment allegation against him. I really want to see the smoke blow out of the animatronic leprechaun’s ears right before he malfunctions and shuts down.
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!
Susan Sarandon’s arch liberal rival Debra Messing says she regrets appearing on Megyn Kelly‘s premiere performance on Today. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Debra made the bold political statement in the most direct and unequivocally bravest way possible, by burying it in a comments thread on a picture she posted on Instagram of a bowl of cucumber slices captioned “Snack time! #presstour”.
Attention enthusiasts know that the Emmys are a tasteful affair; you’ve got to balance out your ass with some class. Thankfully, Ariel Winter showed everyone last night how to do it. Ariel came in a dress by Steven Khalil featuring not one, but two crotch-high leg slits. Angelina, who? I’m sure her dress was very expensive, so for those of you hoping to find the look for less, I would probably suggest Craigslist the day after the next AVN awards.
Little nuggets about the upcoming Will & Grace reboot have been dropping lately, including how they’re basically going to ignore the whole Will and Grace live happily ever after away from each other finale. But, one key component will not be back for the revival: ROSARIO! But, but, but!!!! She’s the best part! If anyone could scale Trump’s wall and teach President Cheeto Head a lesson, it’s her! The way she would call Karen a booze bag and scream before they eventually hugged it out has been my model for friendship since, well, ever! I grew up thinking the show needed to be called Jack & Karen & Rosario, so I’m really wondering why NBC even bothered giving this more episodes before the first episode even airs! Continue reading
