Billy Bush Is Not Leaving NBC Without a Fight, Lawyer Speaks Out

Billy Bush is currently in negotiations to exit NBC, but it does not look like he will be leaving without a fight.

The 45-year-old television personality was suspended by the network for his role in the leaked Access Hollywood tapes featuring Donald Trump‘s lewd remarks about women.

Billy‘s lawyer Marshall Grossman has spoken out to defend his role in the video and explain why he didn’t challenge the former Apprentice host during the interview.

“If Billy had been passive or responded ‘Shut the f— up’ to Trump, Billy would have been out of a job the next day,” Grossman told The Hollywood Reporter.

    what i don’t get about the whole Billy Bush thing is in the video, all he said was “wow she’s fucking hot” is that really offensive to women? lol & if so, since when?!?! lol

    ppl have to look at the situation Billy was in, he’s a tv host. his job is to make his guest feel comfortable. he’s in a trailer with trump while trump is talking about grabbing women & whatever…wtf was Billy supposed to say? lmao.

    lets say billy stands up to trump & challenges him…u don’t think trump who we all know is beyond petty & vindictive can call the higher ups at NBC (mind u at that time The Apprentice was the #1 show on NBC) & get billy fired? or demoted?

    billy was pretty passive during the entire exchange. he’s not heard talking about grabbing women or cheating on his wife. he even wrote an apology, what more do u want from him lmao….in this billy bush situation, NBC & everybody else is overreacting.

    I’m talking about his response this week, not what was on the tape. Suffice it to say, he has learned nothing from time or the heat he has been taking.
