Maybe it’s a good thing that doors are closing for Chris Cuomo. I mean, we all have seen how creepy this guy is.
He’s not just creepy, He’s also a sex maniac… In fact, ABC executive producer has accused Chris Cuomo of sexually harassing her at a 2005 work party after he grabbed her butt in front of her husband and co-workers and he later called it a hearty greeting.
The co-worker was Shelley Ross, a veteran TV journalist, who detailed the June 2005 incident at an Upper West Side bar in a New York Times op-ed Friday.
Cuomo just proved all the accusations after Ms. Ross said that Cuomo sent her an email in the aftermath telling her he was “ashamed” — but quickly tried to show his actions were different from an actor accused of doing the same to a stranger on the street.
Ross said she was working as an executive producer of an ABC entertainment program at the time but had been Cuomo’s boss on ABC’s “Primetime Live” just prior.
Ms. Ross said, “I was at the party with my husband, who sat behind me on an ottoman sipping his Diet Coke as I spoke with work friends. When Mr. Cuomo entered the Upper West Side bar, he walked toward me and greeted me with a strong bear hug while lowering one hand to firmly grab and squeeze the cheek of my buttock and said – ‘I can do this now that you’re no longer my boss,” while he said that with a kind of cocky arrogance.
Ross pushed him off me through his chest while stepping back. Sturdy, right?
Previously, Cuomo’s brother, Andrew, resigned as New York governor in August amid a sexual harassment scandal. The CNN host also faced criticism after it was revealed that he participated in strategy calls with the governor’s staff on how to handle the allegations. CNN said it was “inappropriate” for him to do so but didn’t take disciplinary action.
What’s with these Cuomo guys getting into this kind of trouble?
Bizpacreview reported that Melanie Buck was the executive producer of “Cuomo Prime Time” from April 2018 until March 2020, when she was replaced by Izzy Povich after reportedly going to CNN boss Jeff Zucker and requesting a transfer to another department due to “significant differences” with Cuomo. Her request was granted.
Janice Dean has to say this..
This seems pretty awful. How many times does @CNN reward this guy?
Melanie Buck felt ‘threatened’ enough by Chris Cuomo to quit show https://t.co/3HqWl1FRvR
