Joan Rivers Says The WGA Hasn't Contacted Her And Voices Support For The Fashion Police Writers!

joan rivers responds fashion police strike writers guild charges

We told you Joan Rivers is facing charges from the Writers Guild of America, East for working on Fashion Police while the writers are striking.

Well apparently it was news to Joan too!

Joan's manager Larry Thompson says Joan has not been contacted by the WGA at all! He said:

"Other than a press release, nothing has been filed by the WGA. We have received no communication, notice or any paperwork from anyone at the union.

Joan has stated clearly, and E! Networks has repeatedly reconfirmed that Joan supports the Fashion Police writers who are hired by E! Networks Productions, not her. This is an issue between E! and the WGA. She is on-air talent."

If Joan can't do anything about the writers' wages and benefits, maybe the WGA will make her an ally rather than an enemy!

We can only hope that with Joan's support, the writers get everything they are owed!

    Saying nothing is the same as doing nothing for the writer you worked personally with to make the show the successful money making show it is and she is a writer herself Joan did not get to where she is by not know what was going on around her PLEASSSSSSS!!! and now she is playing dumb. She should be ashamed of what she has NOT DONE to remedy this situation. They get paid $15>00 and hour to work on a sucessful money make show how sad.

    Please. She has enough clout to have a say. (And I don't really get the Melissa criticism. True, she wouldn't be working there if she weren't JR's daughter, but she's doing a good job, isn't she?)

    This isn't really Joan's problem. Woman has worked and worked for decades and decades to find a cushy spot that pays, especially after the Carson thing. It looks like a conflict of interest thing, but I doubt she hires and fires writers. Most on air talent doesn't. The most they do is bring a beef about another employee to the brass and leave it with them.
