In a move worthy of several record scratches in a row, disgraced Today Show outcast and bus buddy Billy Bush might sue NBC over the leak of that infamous tape to the Washington Post last week. Page Six’s report on this rumor doesn’t provide many details about the potential suit, but does make Bush seem furious with the network.


They write:

While NBC bids to ax him over a “morality clause” in his contract, he is blaming NBC for the leak of the tape to the Washington Post, and may even sue. It is believed someone at NBC News leaked the tape to make it public ahead of the debate, because of frustrations that “Access Hollywood” had planned to air it the following Monday.

Bush is also “looking to hire a high-power fixer” after denying “Trump’s offer to ‘help’ with some positive p.r.”

Wow! He made at least one good choice!

Meanwhile, here’s a video from 2002 of Billy Bush asking Jennifer Lopez about her butt. Lopez wasn’t having it. “This is insane. I’m dreaming. Billy Bush just asked me that question.”

Joe Jonas, the unmarried Jonas brother who wasn’t recently fake dating Kate Hudson, did an AMA on Reddit this week to promote his new DNCE song “[I’d Look Up the Song Title If I Cared More],” and things got sorta racy!

If you’d rather not read what Joe had to say about his penis, please skip to the next story. If you’re a glutton for punishment, take a look at this:

Jonas proudly stated, “I like to think so. Although, it’s not often that I’m in a locker room or shower with my brothers, so I couldn’t really tell you. But, I’d like the Internet to believe that I’m still killin’ it.”


I hate this. :)

“Jen’s a good sport.”

No, asshole, she’s a woman at work putting up with a dickwad interviewer who has no boundaries and terrible judgement. She’s being as polite as possible without walking out of the interview (which she probably would do, these days, rather than sit there for another second with your smug mug).

I’ve been outside the country for too long to know who Billy Bush was before this whole debacle, but I can say this: He seems to be in keeping with the rest of his clan, with even less class, if that’s possible. I hope he sues NBC, the Washington Post, Trump and the entire country, and when he loses, I hope he goes bankrupt on the court costs and chokes on his smug sense of entitlement.

ETA: These recordings - both this one and the one with Trump, were all made while BBs first cousin, GW Bush, was President. I’m sure that played no role in his ability to get a job, and in people being polite to him instead of blowing him off like the noxious squit that he seems to be.
