no title

Catt Sadler and Jason Kennedy are two fruits of the same tree!

That's what the former E! News host had to say amid claims that her colleague had a bigger workload than her, hence why he made considerably more money.

As we reported, A-listers have been flocking to support Sadler following her announcement that she was leaving the network after 12 years because she found out that she made much less than her colleague.

Stars like Debra Messing and Eva Longoria viciously blasted E! for the pay disparity on Sunday's Golden Globes red carpet — which prompted the network to speak out on Tuesday about the "misinformation" regarding the messy situation.

NBCUniversal Cable has defended its salaries ever since the 43-year-old announced her exit. Kennedy's wife Lauren Scruggs Kennedy echoed that sentiment in her blog, arguing that gender is not the issue because her husband makes way less than female cohosts like Giuliana Rancic.

But Sadler doesn't buy that argument. She told the The Hollywood reporter that while comparing Kennedy and Rancic is like comparing "apples and oranges," she and Kennedy are "apples to apples."

She also subtly noted that Kennedy's wife should stay in her lane, explaining:

Shots. Fired.

As we reported, Catt Sadler shocked fans when she announced she was leaving E! after learning cohost Jason Kennedy "was making double my salary and has been for several years." To add insult to injury, during negotiations, the network reportedly refused to give her equal pay.

Catt Sadler Exits E! News After Learning There Was A Massive Disparity In Her Pay!

Catt Sadler has left her "dream job" at E! Why??

Well, because after almost 12 years at the network, the entertainment journalist learned that her salary was nowhere near her cohost Jason Kennedy's paycheck. How awful.

We don't blame Sadler for becoming exasperated by this news as she has certainly taken on more responsibility at the network. Specifically, in addition to hosting E! News, the mother of two hosted the two-hour live daytime show Daily Pop. Thus, this year when her contract was coming to an end, Catt was eager to negotiate with E! when they revealed they wanted to extend her deal.
