The continued CATFIGHTS at KPIX...astonishingly-- !! have begun to break out between PIX and radio sister, downstairs! at KCBS too! We already told you that Allen Martin still can't stand Elizabeth Cook and that weatherman Paul Deanno won't even look at Veronica De La Cruz! Real drama, ladies and gents! Girls Rule upstairs and downstairs --at least some do.
Now we learn there's considerable tension between PIX and their CBS-owned radio relatives upstairs at 855 Battery--an uber-catfight supreme between the likes of Jan Wahl, Susan Leigh Taylor and other radio vets. The gals are aghast at the "royal treatment" by management toward some--but not others.
De La Cruz is at the center of the heat--PIX staffers are steamed that the "beauty anchor" and "hair goddess" (as she's been called) gets "star" treatment while less other glamorous women staffers are ignored.
"She's always touching her hair!--She never stops!", offered one disgruntled PIX source. "And she's always tweeting and going to her Facebook page--It's disgusting!"
Leigh Taylor in radio is supposedly irritated at movie critic Wahl's VIP status from management. Wahl does her movie reviews on Friday and barely pays attention to Taylor. All the while, Stan Bunger just gazes ahead-- It's a hodgepodge of "Girls Rule"--at Wahl's direction. Wahl has extreme power at KCBS and nobody seems to know why. Talk about mystery, this one could rival a Nancy Drew classic.
Meanwhile radio is also pissed at TV. Seems the TV divas and their dollar superiority has all of the radio folks quite unimpressed and disinterested --enough to the point of one staffer's suggestion: "Let's just kick their ass!" We assume this was a joke, but it isn't.
