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.
Gretchen Carlson, the former co-host of Fox & Friends who looks like your uncle’s second wife that drinks white wine with a straw and pronounces it “Jai-zuss“, announced on Twitter yesterday that she was no longer at Fox News. As it turns out, she handed her boss more than just her resignation papers. The New York Times says that Gretchen also filed a sexual harassment lawsuit in New Jersey yesterday against Fox News chairman Roger Ailes.
According to the lawsuit, 50-year-old Gretchen alleges that during a meeting last fall to discuss concerns she had at work, 76-year-old Roger Ailes told her that they should have fucked a long time ago and suggested they start a relationship. The lawsuit states that Roger allegedly told her sleeping with the boss would be “good and better” for them both, and that “sometimes problems are easier to solve” with sex. Gretchen claims to have declined, and that’s when Roger allegedly started making things messy for her. The lawsuit claims that Roger then reduced Gretchen’s salary, decreased her on-air appearances, and declined to renew her contract last month. Gretchen has been employed by Fox News since 2006.
Gretchen’s lawsuit also alleges that Roger was a “serial sexual harasser” who was no stranger to ogling her in his office or calling her “sexy.”
I’m sure all our eyes could use a break from looking at a picture of an uncomfortable-looking spray-tanned former Miss America mom in a satin party dress sandwiched between two pervy-looking hands. So let’s take a look at the man Gretchen is suing for sexual harassment, shall we?
