Geraldo On WME Lawsuit: ‘I will die before I give them a single penny’

geraldo-rivera-story-topFox News anchor and correspondent Geraldo Rivera is firing back publicly after a lawsuit that was filed against him by his former talent agency William Morris Endeavour was made public. WME sued Rivera for allegedly not paying his commission.

On his radio show, Rivera stood his ground, as noted by Mediaite.

“Where’s the contract?” Rivera demanded to know, calling the agency a bunch of “B.S.’ers.” He said he’s “furious” with the company, and added, “I will die before I give them a single penny.”

THR, Esq. obtained the lawsuit, and has details:

“Although [Rivera] paid commissions to WME on the Fox News Agreement for a time, the last payment WME received from Defendants was in January 2010,” the complaint stated. “After the Fox News agreement concluded, WME wrote a letter to Defendants demanding payment of the commission balance due. On December 11, 2012, Defendants’ attorney responded stating, among other things, Rivera denies any responsibility for commissions due to WME.”

Is Anthony Weiner Considering a TV Gig?

WeinerGeraldoThe New York Observer reports that former congressman Anthony Weiner may be seriously looking at a media job. The Observer says Weiner began reaching out to TV and radio talent agents earlier this year, even before he began his run for Mayor. Following his 5th place finish in the primary, Weiner has made a few appearances, including on Geraldo Rivera‘s radio show.

Rivera, known to take a selfie or two, tweeted this picture with Weiner, known to take a selfie or dozens, last Friday. As for where he might end up, the Observer talked to “an insider:”

The industry source added that MSNBC was a “natural” destination for Mr. Weiner, but said that the fifth-place finisher would have to prove himself. “It’s almost like doing a failed pilot,” he said. “He’s going to need to demonstrate that he can still do this.”

Roger Ailes on Geraldo: ‘Naked pictures when you are drunk is still stupid’

In addition to talking a bit about his lineup–and the world at large–Fox News CEO Roger Ailes also spent a good deal of time at the 21st Century Fox investor conference cracking jokes. A good deal of those came at the expense of Geraldo Rivera, whose shirtless “selfie” made waves last month.

“There are always people that will rise to the occasion when there is no occasion, but it is hard to find people will do it when there is,” Ailes said, praising Rivera, before adding “Naked pictures when you are drunk is still stupid.”

Some other quips:

“I want to prove that a fat guy can get to 100 still working,” Ailes said in response to a question about retiring from Neil Cavuto. “I would like to be on Dancing with the Stars.”

“Well Geraldo turned it down, so…” Cavuto replied.

“He doesn’t need it. He’s up there shooting pictures of himself in the middle of the night,” Ailes quipped.

Geraldo Rivera Declines Invitation to Perform on ‘Dancing with the Stars’

Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera has politely declined an invitation to be on season 17 of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” A bad foot is keeping him on the sidelines. Other TVNewsers have blitzed the ballroom in the past, including HLN’s Nancy Grace in 2011 — where she may or may not have had a wardrobe malfunction — and Tucker Carlson in 2007, at the time with MSNBC.
