“It wasn’t so all of a sudden. I had an inkling,” Simmons said in an interview with Joy Behar that will air Tuesday night on Current TV. “But somewhere along the line there were mixed signals, and I didn’t think it was going to end, and it did.”
“They kept him. Why?” Behar asked Simmons.
“They never explained that to me, but I think it’s because they viewed him as being more engaged than I was,” Simmons said. “He would do promos, and when things went wrong he would go talk to folks about it.”
The full interview airs on Behar’s Current TV program, “Say Anything,” tonight at 6pm/9pmET.
