Billy Bush will no longer call NBC’s The Today Show home, he’s been cut by the network he’s worked at for over a decade. After that now infamous tape of Donald Trump making lewd remarks about Nancy O’Dell and Arianne Zucker while filming an Access Hollywood segment in 2005.
NBC released a statement, “Billy Bush will be leaving the Today show’s 9 am hour, effective today,” . “While he was a new member of the Today team, he was a valued colleague and longtime member of the broader NBC family. We wish him success as he goes forward.” Billy added his own statement, “I am deeply grateful for the conversations I’ve had with my daughters, and for all of the support from family, friends and colleagues. I look forward to what lies ahead.”
Billy just left his post at Access Hollywood over the summer for his Today Show gig where he signed a 3-year deal for $3.5 million per year contract. Rumor has it NBC cut a $10 million check to clean up this mess. But can you believe that Melania Trump is attempting to say Billy Bush egged on Donald during that 2005 Access Hollywood tape. Ummm sure…Trump is sooo innocent, right? Ha!
