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

EXCLUSIVE! E!'s Fashion Police Writers Carry On With The Funny While Striking! Watch HERE!

You can’t stop the jokes from coming!

E!'s Fashion Police writers might be in the middle of a heated battle for fair wages and Writers Guild of America recognition, but that isn’t stopping them from cracking the eff up!

And cracking US the eff up, we might add.

The writers might be buried up to their elbows in legal dramz, but they’ve also been quite busy making a HIGHlarious little video about what they’re “really” doing with all this extra time!

We’re rolling on the floor laughing over some of these insane one-liners they came up with upon the NEW claims people are being asked to write Joan Rivers' jokes anonymously and get paid under the table!

Seriously, E! is missing out with these jokesters.

It might be time to give them what they want. They’re CLEARLY worth it!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

EXCLUSIVE! Fashion Police Writers Claim E! Honchos Are Trying To GUILT Them Into Ending Strike! Read Open Letter HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsExclusives!Business Blitz

Not being fair to your employees is SO not fashionable!

The writers at style critique show Fashion Police are currently on STRIKE, as they have been fighting with network heads because of alleged unpaid overtime and other dodgy payment practices…

AND they are demanding that E! allow them to be considered as a Writers Guild show so that they can be protected by the WGA organization from future shady dealings!

Now, we've heard that people over at E! claim they ARE willing to negotiate and that it is the writers who are being unreasonable, but we've JUST been made aware of a rather harsh email that was sent solely to the writers FROM a network bigwig that seems to want to GUILT the writers into giving up!!

In the e-mail, the person reiterates the point that it is the WRITERS who are holding up their own cause, and that "negotiations could have been underway and it’s entirely possible that we could already have a fair deal for all by now."

BUT, our inside source — a Fashion Police writer — alleges that the only reason E! wants them to enter an election NOW is because the writers would be required to DROP their lawsuit against the network first.

The writers have drafted up an open letter in response, that reads as follows:

E! Internal Memo Expresses Disappointment In Fashion Police Writers Strike

fashion police writers strike internal e memo

We told you on Wednesday about the strike by the writers of E!'s Fashion Police!

Well, in case you were wondering how the network is responding to the labor dispute, here is an internal memo from President Suzanne Kolb to all E! employees, in its entirety:

"I want to make sure you are aware of a work action taking place on 'Fashion Police.' We are disappointed that the WGA has called a strike and some of the 'Fashion Police' writers have chosen to vacate their positions. It's unfortunate given that we have taken every action to expedite an election for these writers to decide if they wish to have a bargaining representative, which is the NLRB process that E! and the Guild followed for two other shows now under WGA agreements. In fact, if the WGA had taken the same path as they did with 'The Soup' and 'Chelsea Lately,' we would be well into negotiations toward a deal at this time. We are hopeful the 'Fashion Police' writers will choose to follow the same process and if the writers vote for Guild representation, we are prepared to sit down immediately with WGA representatives in the hopes of reaching a fair agreement."

Apparently it's the position of Ms. Kolb that E! is waiting at the table, and the union is stalling talks now.

But E! wants to be clear that Joan Rivers supports the writers' right to organize! They released a statement saying:

"As a point of clarification, Joan Rivers has gone on record repeatedly that she supports the 'Fashion Police' writers and wants a fair agreement for them."

So if everyone wants a fair agreement, why isn't there one? Something tells us someone isn't as willing to talk as they say!

Until then, fashion will just have to police itself!

Seth MacFarlane Opens Up About Jon Stewart Feud On Piers Morgan Tonight

Filed under: Jon StewartTV NewsMedia MinutePiers Morgan

Well said, Seth…and we don't blame you for being weary of reigniting the drama with Jon! We can't IMAGINE trying to debate that man!

Check out the video (above) of Seth MacFarlane opening up to Piers Morgan about an angry phone call that Jon Stewart made to him back in '08.

Apparently, Seth mocked Jon on Family Guy for continuing to air The Daily Show during the 2007 Writer's Guild strike…and Jon did NOT appreciate it AT ALL.

What do U think? Team Seth or Team Stewart???
