Well this is an interesting twist!
The writers over at E!'s Fashion Police are currently striking so that they can get fair wages, become protected under the WGA, AND so that they can receive all the money from their (alleged) unpaid overtime hours…
And because they are currently NOT working (thus not making an income), the striking writers scheduled a benefit at famed Los Angeles comedy club The Laugh Factory for this Wednesday to help pay their billz.
Now this is where shit gets WEIRD.
Our FP writer source claims the benefit show sold out VERY quickly, which is good right? BUT, it seems that all tickets were bought by ONE person…
E! Vice President John Najarian!!!
Our source is just as baffled as we are, especially because the writers get paid for the gig even if no one shows up.
Could NOT allowing the comedy writers to have an audience be part of a plan to silence their strike?
Or maybe the E! execs are planning to fill the theater up with hecklers?!
Either way, something SHADY is gonna go down tomorrow night!
