Calls Out E! Live for ‘Pay Disparity’
… I Miss Catt Sadler

Debra Messing was the first actress in the Time’s Up movement to take a swipe at E! on the red carpet for the Golden Globes … calling them out for their apparent pay disparity.
Debra was being interviewed Sunday by E! host Giuliana Rancic, at which point Debra says … “I was so shocked to hear that E! doesn’t believe in paying their female co-hosts the same as their male co-hosts.”
She goes on … “I mean, I miss Catt Sadler. And so, we stand with her.”
It was an awkward interaction, especially since Giuliana did not directly address Debra’s gripe about Catt — who recently revealed that she left E! after discovering her male counterpart, Jason Kennedy, had been paid nearly double her salary for several years.
As we reported … these interviews are all live and unvetted. Clearly, anything goes.
