A producer at E! is claiming to have been fired for allowing an interview with Eva Longoria to air during the 2018 Golden Globes.
The interview had Longoria showing her support for former E! host Catt Sadler, and right after it aired Aileen Gram-Moreno says she was let go.
Moreno says: “They said, if there’s any mention of Catt in the preshow, make sure you flag it. You’re censoring celebrities; it’s just not a good idea in my humble opinion. But it wasn’t my decision.” E! responds by saying: “If we were trying to censor, which is her primary thesis here, we certainly wouldn’t have done that. For the past decade Aileen Gram-Moreno was a freelancer who worked an average of 20 days per year solely for our red-carpet coverage. After the Golden Globes, she was asked not to return due to job performance issues. Ms. Gram-Moreno filed her legal claim after her request for a financial settlement was turned down.” Catt Sadler quit the network and her job after learning that her male colleagues earned twice more than she did.
