Gabrielle Union Talked About Simon Cowell’s Indoor Smoking On “AGT” And NBC’s Racial Discrimination Investigation
Gabrielle Union got into a very public shitstorm with America’s Got Talent as well as NBC, Fremantle, and Syco over alleged racist and sexist shit that happened on-and-off camera. She was fired from the series after one season and alleged it was because she spoke out about discrimination. NBC sort of acknowledged they can do better and said they were working with Gabrielle on investigating her claims. Well, Gabrielle says NBC’s investigation was botched from the getgo and they never fairly looked into possible discrimination. Gabrielle also got into Simon Cowell’s asshole ways. Simon Cowell is an asshole?! This is brand new information!
Gabrielle Union Says Simon Cowell’s Smoking Gave Her Bronchitis On The Set Of “America’s Got Talent”
Last fall Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough were fired as judges on NBC’s America’s Got Talent. It soon came out that Gabrielle’s forced exit may have been related to her “difficult” (sigh) habit of calling out on-set racism and sexism. By December, AGT was being investigated by SAG-AFTRA, and NBC was in full damage control mode, claiming they were working with Gabrielle’s people to “hear more about her concerns”.
Gabrielle has tweeted a little about these reports, including responding to AGT host Terry Crews’ sycophant “huh? NBC isn’t racist” comments. But she hasn’t given a full account of her experience. Not until an interview with Variety, where she got into it. Gabrielle says she realized something was rotten in the state of AGT from Day One, when fellow judge/executive producer Simon Cowell casually smoked indoors. Not just a violation of public health laws, but dangerous, because Gabrielle is highly allergic! Continue reading
The Will & Grace revival, or whatever you want to call it, finished up its final season on Thursday––fourteen years after its original ending––and for some, the move is bittersweet. For others, not so much. In addition to leaving their characters behind for good, Debra Messing and Megan Mullally can also put an end to the greatest acting of their respective careers because neither has to continue pretending to like the other one!
Darlene Love Is Mad That The Producers Of “Christmas At Rockefeller” Hired Someone Else To Sing Her Christmas Song
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and all around musical legend Darlene Love has been dissed! Call your aunties, call your friends, call the authorities, call Patti LaBelle! This cannot stand! Darlene sang background vocals on dozens of hits in the ‘60s, was more recently featured in the documentary 20 Feet From Stardom, and was a staple on Late Night With David Letterman where she performed her holiday hit Christmas Baby, Please Come Home for decades. In a post on Facebook, Darlene called out Brad Lachman Productions for passing her over, yet again, for the chance to sing CBPCH on NBC‘s annual “Christmas at Rockefeller Center” special. Instead, she says they invited younger artists “who can’t even hit the notes properly and are off key” to sing her song. She’s livid. I’m livid. Everybody should be livid. And to those “younger artists” who just had their ass handed to them by Darlene, give thanks. You’ve just been Love’d!
The firing of Gabrielle Union from America’s Got Talent has really turned out to be the Advent Calendar from Hell for NBC this Christian December, huh? Each day there’s a new headline that’s keeping this AGT mess from finally dying. They keep getting shit, even though they claimed they’re “working” with Gabrielle over her accusations of racism and sexism on set. Past judges chimed in. Howard Stern shit all over Simon Cowell and the old, ugly men of the show while Sharon Osbourne previously kept it cordial with the show but said NBC itself has problems. Well, now Sharon has joined Howard in shitting on Simon.
NBC didn’t know what they were doing when they decided to can the two female judges from America’s Got Talent. Sending Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough packing has turned out to be the headache of the year. Yes, there is only one month left of the year, so this one’s going to spill into 2020. Fun for them, huh?
There were reports of racist jokes, racial acts, and careless AGT producers who turn a blind eye to it all, while also making racially-packed hair commentary to Gabrielle. Gabrielle kept quiet about it until now. Gabs and her husband Dwyane Wade have said words about it, and so have other NBC stars.
