Clearing the Air
Jackie explains why Brian was fired.
To clear up a couple of things: I did not make a derogatory remark about Brian Peeler's client on camera or off-camera. The only reason he tried to bring it up to me on camera is to villanize me and set me up for something I didn't do. Lisa did not know this woman had cancer and made a comment about her breasts which she apologized for. I have dealt with cancer personally as well as watched my mother struggle with it, so I am very sensitive about this disease. I have been employed in the past and in a million years would not have behaved the way Brian behaved with me. I can't imagine raising my voice or refusing to leave my boss' office when asked politely to do so. I feel totally justified in firing him. I have always personally disliked him. Please remember that this is a show and that much of the beautiful and inspiring work we did was left on the cutting room floor. On a lighter note, I thought Erica looked beautiful during her shoot and it was a great self-esteem builder. Gregg B. and Deenie are just not fitting! Sky Lab is challenging and getting off to a rocky start, but some powerful changes are yet to come.
