Amy Schumer has a big movie coming out so it’s kind of a weird time for her to be parting ways with her longtime PR rep and manager. But she is. And she’s not making the change because Carrie Byalick pressured her to take Snatched. Page Six suggests that she might be dumping her because she used to date Amy’s new husband Chris Fischer.
According to Page Six:
Power publicist and manager Carrie Byalick — who helped turn Schumer into one of the biggest comedy stars on the planet — dated Schumer’s brand-new husband, Chris Fischer, way back in 2007.
While sources close to Schumer and Byalick say that it was “just time” for them to go their separate ways, we’re told that after Schumer and Fischer tied the knot in February, Schumer and Byalick’s relationship fell apart.
Seems to me, if it was so long ago that Carrie dated Chris, and Chris really was the reason for the split, it’s probably either because Carrie still had feelings for him, or because Amy was insecure or jealous. Or maybe Carrie warned Amy about Chris and she didn’t want to hear about it. Or maybe Chris told Amy that Carrie is secretly a devil worshiper. Or maybe Amy is actually the devil and Carrie sussed her out and threatened to expose her if she went through with the marriage that she knew would eventually produce a demon child who would infiltrate Hollywood by becoming a child actor in a single camera sitcom called “‘Lil Devil” and use that as platform to cast a spell on America creating a nation of Amy worshiping satanists. It’s all just speculation at this point.
Page Six says that Carrie is the reason Amy and Chris met in the first place, but in such a convoluted way I need a police investigation string board to keep track.
We’re told that Fischer’s younger sister, Molly, asked Byalick for help finding work, and Byalick introduced her to Schumer, who hired her as her assistant. Molly then introduced Schumer to Chris, and they got married just a few months later.
Adding fuel to the speculation that Chris was at the root of the split, Amy unfollowed Carrie on Instagram and didn’t invite her to the wedding. Even so, Carrie insists it was purely professional. She told Page Six:
People are always trying to make a story more interesting than reality. Our business relationship ended for many reasons, but has no connection to someone I briefly dated over a decade ago, years before I even met Amy. I couldn’t be happier for her personally and professionally, and though our working relationship ended, we remain good friends.
Carrie must be Amy’s 81st best friend since she invited 80 friends to her wedding.
