Joan Rivers might have to rethink her catchphrase – “can we talk?” as a dozen writers on her E! series have gone on strike against the network and Joan Rivers’ Rugby Productions.
Two weeks after the writers filed complaints with the state of California alleging the company has denied paying them $1.5 million in regular and overtime hours.
Ned Rice, one of the writers involved in the suit says – “We have earned the right to be a Guild show, we deserve to be a Guild show, and we want to be a Guild show. The ball is clearly in E! and Rugby’s court right now and we’re ready to go back to work on Fashion Police just as soon as they sign a WGA contract.”
Joan has not made an official comment yet!
