Today I’ve got my pom poms out yelling at the top of my lungs at the news that former CBS chairman Les Mooves will NOT be receiving his $120 Million severance package after allegations came out that he got real pervy with a multitude of women during his time on CBS’ Iron Throne.
First and foremost HAHAHAHAHA! Les, you dumb bitch. After all of the misconduct allegations publicly came out, what the hell made you think that CBS wouldn’t cover their own asses (after years of covering yours) and save themselves $120 million?! Deadline reports that on Monday, CBS’ board reviewed the facts surrounding the case and, even though Les stepped down back in September, the evidence was too damaging and now he better start sending out his resume to any place that will take him, which at this point is nobody.
“The Board of Directors of CBS has completed its investigation of former Chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves, CBS News, and cultural issues at CBS,” the company said in a statement Monday. “With regard to Mr. Moonves, we have determined that there are grounds to terminate for cause, including his willful and material misfeasance, violation of Company policies and breach of his employment contract, as well as his willful failure to cooperate fully with the Company’s investigation. Mr. Moonves will not receive any severance payment from the Company.”
Of course, because he’s a rich white man with too much power and not enough common sense, he’s running to his legal team to fight the decision. However, famed ambulance chaser Gloria Allred will be right there ready to tie him up with her lasso of truth. Deadline also reports Gloria is representing four of the women involved with the case and believes that Les’ severance should be allocated to the victims instead.
“The public has a right to know who at CBS was aware of Mr. Moonves’ alleged misconduct and when they knew of it,” the lawyer who is representing four women who participated in the investigation after claiming Moonves victimized them (said).
Allred also thinks CBS should put the $120 million that would have been Moonves’ money where the right thing to do is. “Instead of keeping this money and rewarding their corporation for Mr. Moonves’ alleged misconduct, they should share these many millions with those who can prove that they are victims,” she adds. “CBS will not be able to remove the stain on their reputation and the stench of this scandal unless and until they take care of those who were victimized.”
So where the hell is Les’ wife Julie Chen? She was the new Tammy Wynnette when she let everyone know she was standing by her man when this mess started. However, a $120 million loss may be enough to cause a bitch to do a bit of re-evaluation of her life choices. She’ll either have to stay on as the host of Big Brother or fill out an application to become a houseguest. Listen, a check is a check. And she always tells everyone to expect the unexpected. Though I’m sure she never expected any of this.
