Last week, we reported that Billy Bush had been suspended from the “TODAY Show” indefinitely over his participation in a pervy 2005 conversation with Donald Trump that included talks of trying to sleep with married women and grabbing other women “by the p-ssy.” We’re still grossed out about it. Obviously NBC is, too. Now, with negotiations closed, Billy Bush is nearing a settlement deal with the network over his permanent separation from the show CNN reports.
It was initially reported that Bush would receive $10 million, but representatives from the network quickly shut that down, although that amount may not be far off. The Daily Mail reports that Billy Bush is actually looking at $9 million. We think it’s safe to say that this is the best way to get fired, ever.
