Dear Gossips,

Billy Bush, not surprisingly, has hired a high-powered LA attorney to help negotiate his departure from NBC after “Grab ‘em by the pussy” became the catchphrase of the year. Marshall Grossman is now representing Billy. And while he has not yet filed a lawsuit on behalf of his client, his comments about the situation suggest that he and Billy believe they have a case. Yesterday, Marshall Grossman told The Hollywood Reporter that:

"If Billy had been passive or responded 'Shut the f-ck up' to Trump, Billy would have been out of a job the next day.”

OK. But even if that were true, it doesn’t explain what happened when they got off the bus. If you haven’t already, watch the video:

So they’d already been talking about Arianne Zucker with their dicks in their hands when the bus pulls up. When they get off the bus, after greeting one another, she asks if they’re ready to head to set. They could have just made their way over to the set. Instead, Billy decides to jump in with, “How about a little hug for the Donald? He just got off the bus”. Right. When did it become a job requirement for Billy to become Donald Trump’s hug pimp? Thirty seconds ago they were leering at her legs, basically picturing her naked. The minute they’re in her presence, Billy’s setting up body contact. That’s not part of the goddamn job. Nobody’s getting fired if he doesn’t grossly facilitate an opportunity for Donald’s chest to make contact with her breasts, slimy f-ck. Can’t wait to hear the rationale for that.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,
