Megyn Kelly Blackface Controversy - 'Today' Episodes Pre-Taped

NBC slams Megyn Kelly over blackface comments

One source said that it seemed inevitable Kelly would be phased out of the industry. Kelly was reportedly close to landing UTA co-president Jay Sures as her new representative, but the high-powered agent backed out after speaking with Oppenheim, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

After being thrashed for her remarks and taken to the woodshed on social media, Kelly apologized to her colleagues in an email, saying she now realized that "the history of blackface in our culture is abhorrent, the wounds too deep". "And yesterday I learned", Kelly said.

NBC could not be reached for comment.

In September on "Megyn Kelly Today", the 47-year-old host asked that NBC hire an outside firm to determine how it handled Farrow's reporting on Weinstein.

On Thursday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program", Glenn reacted to the outrage over Kelly's comments as well as the politicization of Halloween costumes and other holiday traditions.

Kelly's lawyer Brian Friedman will meet with NBC brass and has requested that Farrow - who left NBC News previous year after the network declined to run his expose on Harvey Weinstein - be present.

That's a particular sore point with NBC's management.

Kelly Clarkson is reportedly being approached by NBC to be Megyn Kelly's replacement.

Yet the likelihood that a news executive's comments before a roomful of journalists would remain secret is remote.

After all, Kelly is said to have an annual salary of $17 million or more, and if NBCU has to pay any of that out, it could seek to gain some return on its investment, the attorney said.

In the next few weeks, NBC and Kelly's relationship soured.

Many of her former Fox News Channel viewers were upset by a perceived disloyalty in leaving and her clashes with President Donald Trump during his campaign. But she almost ended things after he nearly got one of her dogs killed. Or will they try to find something else with the NBC family of channels (Bravo, for example) where they can ride out her contract and get something for their money?

There were indications that the plans had come about quickly. In addition, cast members and showrunners from the Netflix drama "House of Cards" had canceled their scheduled appearance on her show.

Kelly also wondered why some people were upset that Luann de Lesseps of The Real Housewives of NY "made her skin darker than it really is" to dress up as Diana Ross. So who really has the last blackface-but-only-if-it's-a-costume laugh?
