NY Post-Just Asking 8/5/10

Which network executive was fired for overusing his casting couch? The horny TV honcho was demanding oral sex in exchange for roles on his shows and had a fling with an actress known for her accessibility . . . Which popular Manhattan restaurant had a problem when a rat scurried out of the kitchen across the dining room floor and over a woman's foot? The lady shrieked and ran out, while the eatery went silent as other customers sat in disbelief.

The executive is former ABC exec Steve McPherson(although officially he resigned). Not sure who the actress is-will have to check which actresses had a lot of guest spots on ABC shows!

No idea on the restaurant.

As someone who's been working in food safety for more than twenty years, and has absolutely loathed New York for much longer than that, I'm laughing my butt off too much to hazard a guess at which eatery it is.

Gross and gross. Don't know about the answers.

Cipriani for the Manhattan restaurant?

Rumor has it the actress was Gretchen Mol ("Life on Mars")...she has been rumored to be casting couch slut before.

From the Awful Truth -

"Dear Ted:
Just lifted this tidbit from Page 6: "Which network executive was fired for overusing his casting couch? The horny TV honcho was demanding oral sex in exchange for roles on his shows and had a fling with an actress known for her accessibility." Any idea who it could be? Either the exec or the actress?

Dear Dearly Departed:
Oh, I have a strong feeling I know who this blind item is. Would be uncouth to say who, though—but you can probably find out on your own, given recent-ish headlines."
