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!!!

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersJoan Rivers

joan rivers fashion police strike wga charges notification

Someone with as many fur coats as Joan Rivers should know a charge when she sees one!

But the Fashion Police host responded recently to news of WGA charges against her by saying that she hadn't been notified of any.

But according to a source close to the Writers Guild of America, East, Joan was sent her notice way back on June 4! By both e-mail and in a letter!

See, letters are these things on paper with stamps that people used to send each other… never mind, Joan knows what we're talking about!

In fact, Joan seems to know all about the charges. After all, being a member of the WGA, she should already know

Writers over at E!'s Fashion Police have been on strike since April 17th…

And after some rather interesting exchanges between the writers and network execs (AND a benefit show sabotage!), it seems the striking peeps are ready to take their grievances to E!'s front door!

THIS Thursday (May 23), the FP scribes are holding a rally/picket outside of E! headquarters in Los Angeles.

They are inviting any and all who wish to support their call for fair wages, compensation for unpaid overtime, AND their bid to join the Writers Guild of America.

Wanna show YOUR love for the writers of your fave fashion critique show?!

Find out ALL the deets about the picket/rally …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Fashion Police Writers Accuse E! Of Being Cheap! Demand $1 Million In Back Wages!

fashion police writers lawsuit underpaid

Fashion Police may be one of E!'s top rated shows, but it certainly doesn't come across that way in their writers' paychecks!

On Wednesday, the writers filed a claim with the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, accusing their employer of violating state laws by not paying them overtime.

One writer said:

"The most I’ve been paid for a show has been for eight hours of work. In reality, I put in anywhere from 12 to 32 additional hours on each show – time I should have been compensated for. On top of that is all the unpaid overtime we regularly work. There are some shows where we are required to work 16-hour days, from 2:30 p.m. until around 5:30 the following morning."
