Actress Whines About “Unequal Pay.” Look What’s Happened to Her Now

Published

Actress Ruth Wilson, one of the four leading characters on “The Affair” has ended her run on the series, her character having killed herself off screen during Sunday night’s episode. Wilson’s departure comes just months after she whined about receiving “unequal pay” for her role on the show.

Showtime recently decided to renew the series for one final season.

Showbiz 411’s Roger Friedman pointed out the potential connection Monday and provided a quick flashback to Wilson’s comments during an interview on Radio Times back in February, where she expressed her discontent about “definitely” being paid less than male co-star Dominic West.

“I definitely get less money than a male in my situation would. Definitely,” she told Radio Times. Asked specifically about being paid less than West, she said, “Yeah. I think so. Certainly when I signed up to that project, I would have got paid less. Then they [the producers] might argue, ‘Well, he’s already done a major American TV show [‘The Wire’] so he’s already got a level.’ But even after a Golden Globe I’m not going to be on parity.”

She then explained why she hasn’t brought up the issue to West: “It’s quite hard to bring that up in a way. But it needs to be an open discussion and men need to help us out,” she said.

Echoing a theme from other “Time’s Up” advocates, Wilson added, “I don’t want more money, I just want equal money. Which means men have to take less.”

Friedman notes that while The Hollywood Reporter spoke to “The Affair” producer Sarah Treem about axing Wilson, “THR didn’t bother to ask Treem if that had anything to do with Wilson’s pay parity declaration– if Treem had decided to kill her off, or what happened.” Treem said only that Wilson asked to leave. Clearly, Wilson’s #TimeWasUp.

So this lady wants male actors, many of whom are bigger box office draws than a lot of leading women in Hollywood, to get paid less than what they are actually worth, simply because they don’t make as much? Do these women actually hear the crap flowing forth from their mouths?

This is how capitalism works. A product in high demand carries high value. A high value product is worth more money than a product of lesser value. If more women would put butts in theater seats, they’d be the ones receiving the lion’s share of the profit. Since they don’t, they make what they make.

Talk about entitlement thinking.

Fox Reporter Recoils After Getting DIRTY LOOK from POTUS

If you believed the MSM trope about President Trump and Fox News being two peas in a pod, you may want to watch this video.

Fox News

In the seemingly never-ending fight over “fake news”, and whose bias lands where today, the left side of the mainstream media sure loves pointing fingers at Fox News. It’s not hard to see why:  Fox has been consistently crushing CNN in the ratings, as the latter network continues to foment their “resistance” schtick to no avail.  Now, with the Mueller report currently being thumbed through by anyone working late enough over at the Department of Justice, and with enough clearance to gaze upon it, the media machine is about to kick into overdrive in ways that none of our forefathers could have imagined. Remember:  This is a time of nigh-unprecedented division in our nation, with the only other possible period of similar unrest coming during the 1860’s, well before the idea of “24 hour news” was even a gleam in a dreamer’s eye.  The nation is a powder keg thanks to this ridiculous rhetoric, and tensions are running ever-s0-high in Washington DC. And while Donald Trump is often testy, especially with reporters, one Fox News employee had an incredibly chilling experience with the President this week. Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts reported Friday that President Trump “glared at me like I’ve never seen him glare at me before” over questions on criticism of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). The moment was captured on video as well. https://twitter.com/jonkarl/status/1109094737343074305 It certainly doesn’t look like the President’s purported love affair with Fox News is living up to the leftist media’s hype.

Tucker Goes OFF on RussiaGate Hoaxers, Demands Apologies if Mueller Report is a Bust

While the left prepares to be let down by Mueller’s findings, Tucker Carlson is gearing up for a long and arduous fight.

Rumors are swirling today that Robert Mueller is nearing the end of his longstanding “RussiaGate” investigation, and the democrats are figuratively foaming at the mouth. For nearly two years, our nation has been caught up in the twisted, sordid conspiracy theory that Donald Trump, the President of The United States and an extremely wealthy man, has been working for the Russian government in order to get elected. Some say it has to do with a Trump Tower in Moscow, others say it’s due to a blackmail scheme involving unsanitary acts with Russian prostitutes.  In either case, Robert Mueller has been working on the case for two years, only managing to nab a few indictments of low-level Trump acquaintances for crimes not indicative of any “Russian collusion” storyline. Now, as Mueller hemorrhages staff and “no further indictments” seem likely, the nation patiently waits for a final report that they may not even get to see. Furthermore, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has already begun his work as a “heat shield” for the Mueller report by downplaying expectations of the final product. Fox News host Tucker Carlson is taking things a step further, however, demanding that those who perpetrated the longstanding hoax be held accountable. “There need to be consequences for this,” Carlson said. “Once the Mueller report appears, and it becomes incontrovertible that, whatever his faults, Donald Trump did not collude with the Russians, the many people who’ve persistently claimed on the basis of no evidence that he did collude with the Russians must be punished. Not indicted or imprisoned, but thoroughly shamed and forced to apologize. If Republicans spent three full years falsely claiming that Barack Obama colluded with the government of Iran, would those who claimed it, ever work in politics or media again? That’s a rhetorical question.  Lying…
