So Mark Zito has weighed in on Julia’s radio debacle. He clarifies some things and is generally gracious. Here’s what he had to say:
I have to be honest, having Julia on is always fun for me. She makes for good radio. But, at the same time, I really wasn’t happy with what she did this time. I mean, I knew she didn’t like them and they (Covino and Rich) weren’t big fans of her attitude, but I thought that would stay off-air. At the very least, I really didn’t think it would reach the level it did once the mics got turned on. But, whatever, I can’t be mad because that segment was compelling…some of the most fun we’ve ever had. Also, just so everyone knows, I wasn’t actually scared to lose my job, it was just awkward for her to so blatantly call out guys that I look up to in the industry. But again, good content!
I think we WILL actually go out to dinner, but Covino and Rich will cover that on their show tomorrow at noon EST on SIRIUS 108/XM 139. And I’m sure they’ll have more commentary on this situation.
For the record, Rich calls Julia a blogger-nussie. Not a blogger nothing. I mention this only because nussie is a hilarious word in the Covino and Rich lexicon (it means naughty hussy), and I really want it to take hold.
I guess that’s it for now. Let it be known that I cannot wait to go on this dinner…maybe we’ll go to Houston’s?
And yes, you can publish this whole e-mail if you want.
P.S. I can only hope that one day I am known enough to have an entire website dedicated to hating me. I can see it now…maybe all the women I’ve slept with can be the commenters? But that would be weird though, to have 4 13 year-olds writing internet comments. Oh God, it’s a “I don’t have a lot of sex” and a pedophile joke. Gross.
Well that was diplomatic of him. I still think she’s fucking nuts.
