Fox News is going to rue the day they ever fucked around with Gretchen Carlson because she’s now in charge of the talent pipeline that feeds into 80% of the channel’s payroll: the Miss America pageant, er, competition! Gretchen went on Good Morning America this morning to say it’s no longer a beauty pageant. Miss America is a competition to see who is smart and a great leader, and that means the whole Victoria’s Secret Lite swimsuit competition is scrapped in favor of a live session with the judges. But, but, but, Gretch! If you take away the swimsuit competition, how is your former employer supposed to know the cup size of its future political commentators?? Continue reading
The people who run the Miss America pageant might have taken communication classes from the former owner of the Miss Universe pageant. Yesterday, The Huffington Post published notes from three years worth of emails sent between Miss America CEO Sam Haskell (you never can trust a Haskell). Many of the emails were rude and/or sexist.
One email chain in question dates back to 2014 between Sam and pageant writer Lewis Friedman. Sam informs Lewis that the title of “Forever Miss America” would be changed to “Former Miss America.” Lewis writes back that he changed “Forever” to “Cunts,” and asking “Does that work for you?“. If Sam wasn’t a gross piece of trash, he might have walked to Lewis’ office and told him to pack his shit and get out, but that didn’t happen. Sam allegedly responded by saying, “Perfect…bahahaha.”
Actually, that’s not true. Time magazine seems a bit too stuffy and uptight to partner with such a sexy retailer. But that didn’t stop model Ashley Graham from slinking onto the red carpet of the annual Time 100 Gala in New York City last night in a silk nightie and robe combo. Oh, and a corset belt and jeweled choker, because Ashley clearly knows the difference between a proper formal lingerie look and looking like you just woke up from an afternoon catnap in your sugar daddy’s mansion.
Almost two months ago, Gretchen Carlson (seen above looking like she’s posing for her ConservativeMingle.com profile picture) dropped a sexual harassment lawsuit into the laps of former Fox News chairman (and current Trump employee) Roger Ailes and her former employers at Fox News. Gretchen accused Roger of a mountain of inappropriate stuff, like repeatedly suggesting sex times and allegedly firing her when she refused. Thankfully there will be no courtroom trial in which a prosecutor will hold up a package of raw ground hamburger and ask Roger to show where he asked people to touch him. Vanity Fair says that Gretchen has settled her lawsuit and it only cost 21st Century Fox $20 million.
When Gretchen Carlson filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Fox News chairman Roger Ailes one week ago, she didn’t have much to say about it. Her lawyer, Nancy Erika Smith, did most of the talking. Not that she had to, of course; there was enough grossness in that lawsuit to get all the attention it needed on its own.
Since then, lots of people have had things to say about Gretchen’s lawsuit. Several women have come forward with their own accusations against Roger Ailes. Some people at Fox News have come to Roger’s defense, the most recent being talking blonde headache Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and Geraldo Rivera, who described Roger as “about as flirty as the grizzly in The Revenant.” And then there’s Roger Ailes himself, who denies it all. Well, one week later, Gretchen is finally talking publicly about her lawsuit against the lumpy sack of inappropriate horniness.
Last Wednesday, former Fox & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Fox News chairman and humanoid slug Roger Ailes. Gretchen claimed, among other things, that she was fired after she refused to have sex with Roger. As it turns out, Gretchen isn’t the only one to accuse Roger of creep behavior. According to New York Magazine, six more women have come forward and accused Roger of working his gross old man game on them.
