What Would the Countess Do? Replacing a Friend at Work; Live TV Confrontations
When it comes to etiquette, manners and overall good behavior, even celebrities need help navigating the rough waters of stardom! It’s a good thing Countess LuAnn de Lesseps of the Real Housewives of New York City is joining forces with OK! to school them on the right thing to do! In a rough situation, we just ask, “What Would the Countess Do?” This week the Countess chimes in on Emmys fashion and dealing with party accidents.
WHAT WOULD THE COUNTESS DO? SUBSTANCE ABUSE PROBLEMS; POLITICAL CONFRONTATIONS
If a friend of yours is fired and you end up getting their job, how do you approach that topic with the friend without starting bad blood? Don’t be surprised if your friend is a little miffed about you getting their old job and reacts negatively to your good news. The best approach in this situation is to be sympathetic and express how conflicted you feel about taking this job. Hopefully, your friend is in a new job by the time you have this conversation. If not, you can offer to help with the job search by scanning classifieds and asking family, friends and co-workers if they know of an available position.
Tip: Learn from your friend’s mistakes so that you succeed in your new job.
OK! NEWS: ELISABETH HASSELBECK CONFRONT BILL MAHER ON THE VIEW — "THANKS FOR BEING THE HERO"
Elisabeth Hasselbeck recently used an appearance by Bill Maher on The View to bring up things he'd said about her in the past. He was there to promote his book — as a host of a TV show, should she leave her personal grievances off air or was she right to bring it up?
Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a tough cookie and is very firm in her convictions. The reason she brought up Bill Maher’s joke about her being sent to replace the reporter who was sexually assaulted by a mob of men in Egypt was that the joke wasn’t funny and was insulting to women. He needed to be called out for using a terrible situation for his own comedic purposes. Her job on The View is to keep the discussion interesting and with Maher at her side, there was no shortage of fuel for the interview fire.
Tip: Just because you can tell a joke, doesn't mean you should.
