    Talking Billy Bush starts catfight with Mary Hart

    Billy Bush Goes After Mary Hart!




    Billy Bush of Access Hollywood has gone after Mary Hart of Entertainment Tonight. Robot Entertainment TV host war! Billy is disgusted with ET for almost airing a 2-year-old video of Heath Ledger allegedly doing cocaine. Really shocking, because none of us have ever done cocaine before. Give me a break. ET has since announced they won't show the video out of respect for Heath's family. Here's what Billy wrote on Access Hollywood's site:
    I don't often comment on our competition, but because we have so much of it in the "entertainment show" genre these days, we are often lumped in a group together. The fact is, we're very different, and that stems mostly from the difference in scruples of the respective Executive Producers.
    ”Entertainment Tonight” and “The Insider” ran a promo tonight for their Heath Ledger drug use video, which they "reportedly" (love that lawyer enforced word) bought for a couple hundred thousand dollars. A still frame of this video which shows Heath apparently doing cocaine ran on the east coast feed of “ET,” but on the west coast feed, the tasteless still shot was replaced with a shot of someone's feet (Heath’s, I guess). The voice over by Mary Hart had not changed, however. She still spoke of the incriminating scene and still promo'd the full video tomorrow.
    Yes, the still shot was just a taste. Tomorrow is Day 1 of the sweeps ratings period.
    Gross. Totally gross.
    Billy goes on to post the statement ET issued saying they won't air the video. Billy goes on to say:
    Heath Ledger's family has not even had the chance to bury their son. We know he had problems, but this kind of salacious opportunism is poisonous. I struggle with every type of borderline exploitive material. I'm a constant pain to our Executive Producer as I worry too much that things go too far. Ask him.
    I am shocked that Mary Hart would read this crap. I know her and she is a very nice lady, but its clear to me she's "checked out" of that place, basically taking whatever they put in her hand and reading it with the same excitable veneer you'd expect to hear at a 50's sock hop.
    Mary gets paid a lot of money. She must have the clout to say 'no.' Their Executive producer used to run “Hard Copy.” She doesn't hit the brakes for anything. But Mary, you are the June Cleaver of entertainment news; this cannot be OK.
    Let's see how long the outrage lasts.
    Wow! Billy is so fucking catty. Who knew he had half a brain cell. I have to hand it to him. They probably put that statement on teleprompter and he read it to someone else who transcribed it on to the website. Those entertainment show people can only speak with the help of a teleprompter. It's Mary's turn to respond! The producers are putting her response on teleprompter right now for her to transcribe it to the webmaster.
    Mary better watch her fake ass. You know who Billy is related to. He can't wait to send his army after her ass to confiscate her weapons of mass of destruction.

    Whenever I hear about Mary Hart (which isn't often, actually) all I can think of is the lady years ago who would have an epileptic fit when she heard the theme music to Entertainment Tonight.

    That sounds like something out of Seinfeld. Wasn't it Kramer?

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    Whoops, sorry, it was so long ago I forgot the details. It was actually the sound of Mary Hart's voice that set her off. Too funny:

    An article in a 1991 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine quoted a doctor regarding the case of a 45 year old woman, for whom the pitch of Mary Hart's voice would "... set off abnormal electrical discharges in the brain, resulting in not only seizures, but mental confusion, headache and upset stomach. Upon hearing Hart's voice, the woman would rub her stomach, hold her head, and 'look confused and far away . . . and out of it.'" It is also cited in an article entitled "That's Entertainment?" in Science News v140, n3 (July 20, 1991) :45 (1 pages)Kill Your Television!
    If this happened today Mary would have been sued and finally had to shut up.

    It's nice to think that a gossip show reporter has morals.

    I mean, not that they DO, but it's just nice to think about.

    ET has taken a dive as of late. I checked out during the non-stop coverage of Anna Nicole's death. I'd already thought I'd seen enough of Mark Steines on my screen and then lo-and-behold there he was doing a crappy job MCing last week's Miss America contest!

    I like Billy Bush, but the sheer fact that he's in the business make his words pretty empty.

    There is no difference between The Insider and ET. They are
    by the same company and are identical shows almost word
    for word. And they truely pander to celebs.
    This is why TMZ rocks, they don't candy coat everything
    and they're not in the business to help stars sell their crap.
    I have new respect for Billy Bush, who has seriously annoyed
    me for years, but is finally calming the F**k down. Access
    is still a crap show like Insider and ET.

    I think they're both hacks.

    Yeah, it was a good entertainment show back in the Tesh days and the days where they focused on Mary's legs

    I watched it every night. Now, it's one of the worst ones.

    that halfwit is just pulling an anderson cooper and pretending to be classy about this. but he can't help but show his trashy roots by naming and shaming the competition.

    ET is nothing more than an oppurtunity for asshole actors to get free advertisement. Even though I think Billy Bush is an annoying fuckbubble, I like his tenacity.
