It is no secret that Megyn Kelly is living large on the $15 million a year NBC salary. But despite that, her new segment on the Today show is just not successful – in fact, she has already created a lot of controversies. Meanwhile, Kelly has been simply driving her colleagues and staff crazy but also, Lawrence O’Donnell has been going bonkers over her being overpaid as well!
As you may already be aware, a recently leaked tape showed the veteran anchor having a huge meltdown due to the loud hammering that could be heard while he was shooting his show.
Insiders at NBC have told us that the loud noise was being made by workers renovating Megyn Kelly’s already posh office!
‘Lawrence tapes his show on the fourth floor at 30 Rock, and Megyn’s office is on the third floor, where all the commotion was going on. All he could hear was hammering, and he could not concentrate. He lost it!’ the source dished.
The footage showed The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell host screaming ‘Stop the hammering’ and oddly waving his hands, apparently having a meltdown.
Despite speculations that the vid was released on purpose by NBC in order to humiliate the man because he took a hard line in contract negotiations, the experienced newsman is absolutely convinced no one else is to blame but Megyn Kelly.
‘When he heard NBC was paying her $17 million, he decided he should get a raise, too!’ the insider revealed, noting that his earnings are still nowhere near Kelly’s.
