Joan Rivers Settles Fashion Police Writers' Strike Dramz With WGA! Find Out What She Lost HERE!

| Filed under: Legal MattersJoan RiversBusiness BlitzGIFs

joan rivers cleared strike breaking fashion police writers one million backpay promises not to write

Jimmy Hoffa must be rolling over in his unmarked grave!

Yesterday the WGA East finally settled its months long dispute with Joan Rivers, but the outcome will shock you!!!

The TV personality faced a disciplinary hearing later this month over possibly violating union rules by writing and showrunning Fashion Police while its writers were on strike, but instead the WGA-E totally settled with the superstar!!

As part of the agreement, Joan vowed to quit writing from here on out.

She said:

“[I will not] render any writing services even though as a comedian and SAG-AFTRA host, I often write material for myself.”

Former writers for Fashion Police have been on strike since April and claim they're owed over $1 mil in backpay.

We already told you we were disappointed by Joan's unwillingness to support her writers. They merely wanted fair compensation for so eloquently crafting her material, but she never went to war with the network for them!

WGA East president Michael Winship seemed happy with the outcome. He admitted:

“We are very pleased that we have been able to resolve the charges against Ms. Rivers and will not be proceeding to a disciplinary hearing. We recognize Ms. Rivers’ support for the striking writers and her illustrious career. We are also pleased that, as part of the resolution of the Charges, Ms. Rivers has agreed not to write during the strike and to meet with E! to advocate for immediate contract negotiations in support of the Fashion Police writers.”

Sigh… This isn't really the outcome we expected.

    The show has nothing to do with fashion….Joan sucks

    Joan is a vile old bitch…she needs to just go away already…
    mean, foul mouthed and a wrinkled old witch…time to just go to sleep forever.

    While I'm not a big Joan fan, I have to say, Fashion Police has actually been funnier the past couple weeks than it usually is. She should just ax all the striked writers and stick with whomever has been doing the interim writing.

    Perez - You should get your facts straight before blogging. You ASSUME the striking writers are telling the whole truth. You should act like a real journalist and do some investigating.

    Mr. Hilton, you toally missed the point and/or failed to thoroughly read the press release. Not only did she agree to stop writing, she expressed her support of the striking writers AND agreed to meet with E! to demand that they come to the table and negotiate with her writers.
