Catt Sadler Responds to E!'s Claims That She & Jason Kennedy Had Different Workloads

Catt Sadler is responding to claims being made that she and Jason Kennedy had different workloads, and thus, she was expected to take less money.

“My experience, frustration and disparity was based on Jason Kennedy and myself being apples to apples. We came to the network at the same time and did similar jobs. For people to use the argument that Giuliana somehow made more money than Jason, that comparison doesn’t work. They’re apples and oranges. She joined before him, she was managing editor, she had multiple shows on the network. It’s unfortunate that people who don’t work there are trying to be the voice for the network. The only story I can tell is my truth and the truth speaks for itself,” Catt told THR.

If you don’t know, Catt left the network after she discovered Jason made more money and they wouldn’t give her equal pay.

E! Exec Clears Up Catt Sadler Salary Stories

An executive at E! is opening up about the disparity in Catt Sadler and Jason Kennedy‘s salaries.

Frances Berwick, the president of NBCUniversal Cable’s Lifestyle Networks, spoke to reporters at the network’s panel at the 2018 Winter TCA Press Tour on Tuesday (January 9).

“There is a lot of misinformation out there,” she said (via TheWrap). “Catt Sadler and Jason Kennedy had different roles and therefore different salaries.”

Catt was focused on daytime, Jason Kennedy is on prime evening news and the red carpet,” she added. “Our employees’ salaries are based on their roles and their expertise, regardless of gender. So we wish Catt well, but I hope that sets the record straight.”

Catt left the network in December after she discovered a “massive disparity in pay” between her and Jason. At the Golden Globes, several celebrities called out E! for not paying Catt equally to her male co-star.

Catt Sadler Doesn't Blame Jason Kennedy for Pay Disparity

Longtime E! News co-host Catt Sadler left the show this week due to a “massive disparity in pay” to her male co-star Jason Kennedy, but she says she doesn’t blame him.

Jason Kennedy is one of my best friends in the whole wide world. He is like a brother to me. And in no way do I want this to reflect poorly on him. This is not his fault,” the TV personality told People.

Catt also shared how Jason reacted to her departure from the show.

“He’s devastated, I think, and I think he believes that this is a great loss for the network. He does not want to see me go,” Catt said. “Jason is a class act. … But it’s important that people don’t vilify him because he isn’t the problem – the system’s the problem, the structure’s the problem. And I really do mean that. Because that’s been a hard part of this whole thing because I love him dearly. And to be honest, he has been such a champion for me in every sense. But it’s not his decision.”

On Tuesday, Jason tweeted, “I hate goodbyes but I’ll save it for the show tonight, love you so much pal, really going to miss you @IAmCattSadler.”
