Joan Rivers is facing a Writer Guild trial over her TV show Fashion Police. The allegation is that Joan, a Guild member, has been writing and doing other duties on the show. The problem for Joan is that union members aren’t allowed to work on non-union productions. She’s now facing possible expulsion from the Guild, and she’s not happy about it, as evidenced by her comments.
Variety has the story. WARNING: foul language in the headline and story.
I post the link to this story, NOT to endorse her language, but to illustrate what occurs when union members don’t comply with the rules.
