One of my favorite shows from back in the day which is now available on Netflix is Larry Sanders. I loved that show. When they would discuss what guests they wanted and did not want, it was a great part of the show. Well, it happens in real life too. Here is a conversation last week that an A list talk show host had with his/her staff about booking someone.
The talk show host and some producers were were in a light production meeting just going over the upcoming schedule. The talk show host mentioned that they want more general guests on the show and to cut back on other parts of the show. The host was also open to having cooking segments come in. One of the producers suggested Giada because it would be a nice ratings booster to have both of them together. The host pondered the suggestion but said nothing. The one of the other producers said.
Producer: Just make sure to keep Giada away from the band.
Producer who suggested it: What?
Host: You know!
Producer who suggested it: Know what? Oh, because of the John Mayer thing? That was made up by Star Magazine.
AT that point the talk show host started talking about how the producer was clueless about what Giada's deal is and that it is way more than rumors. Apparently Giada would confide in a stylist who also styled the talk show host and was not shy about spilling what was spilled to him which basically included that Giada often would use the excuse of “production meetings” to go meet with guys. The talk show host then called Giada a word that begins with an s and rhymes with mutt.
The producer who suggested her then asked, “so she is out then?”
The talk show host then replied, “who else do you have besides the blowj*b queen?”
