On Friday, during a monologue about conservatives and Hollywood, Bill Maher slammed NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch:
What you may not know about Dana Loesch is that before her job as NRA spokesmodel, she was a show business wannabe, a homemaker in St. Louis with a mommy-blog and a radio show and dreams of TV stardom. NCIS producer, Paul Guyot, says that ten years ago, Dana pitched him a sitcom starring herself as “a hot young mom who does a far-right radio show.” Think “Fraser” meets awful.
And you know what, if only they had made that sitcom. Today, she might be a completely normal person. Instead, we’re all getting the clinched fist of truth because show business gave her the raised finger of “f*** off.”
Here’s the video (pertinent portion begins at the 2:03 mark):
Here are the original tweets from Guyot, which are about a month old:
According to Loesch, the pitch alleged by Guyot never happened, making this a he said/she said issue unless and until Guyot can produce some kind of corroborating evidence to back up his claims.
