Megyn Kelly’s morning show has not even started, but her NBC co-workers are reportedly already “outraged” at Kelly’s “diva-like” behavior and puzzled about why the network keeps throwing money at her.
According to the New York Post, NBC is reportedly “sparing no expense” on Kelly even though she arguably dragged down much of the network during her first two months there as her Sunday newsmagazine show was usually NBC’s weakest link. Due to terrible ratings, Kelly’s Sunday show was pulled at least two episodes sooner than planned, and there are questions about whether the Sunday newsmagazine show that exposed her vapidness will even return after the football season. Viewers promptly returned to NBC to watch a rerun of Dateline as soon as Kelly went off the air.
“People are outraged over her divalike ways,” an NBC insider told “Page Six.” “They wonder, ‘When does NBC stop throwing money at her?’ ”
The Today show franchise hitched its star to Kelly’s wagon by naming her morning show Megyn Kelly Today. And Kelly, who was known as “Me-Again” Kelly at Fox News, is reportedly pissing off her colleagues with her “diva-like” behavior
