Billy Bush suspended from 'Today' show for role in Trump tape
Billy Bush, a host on the Today Show, was suspended by the network Sunday night for his presence in a controversial recording of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaking degradingly about women.
NBC executives suspended Bush, who can be heard conducting a vulgar conversation about Trump's behavior around women on a tape released last week, and may be working on a deal to release him from his newly-signed contract with the Today show.
Although network executives were not overly concerned about Bush being part of the conversation when the tape was released, the explosive nature of the story over the weekend and the public's reaction to the recording led to action being taken.
"We've all been deeply troubled by the revelations of the past 48 hours," said Today show executive Noah Oppenheim in a memo to the show's staff. "Let me be clear -- there is simply no excuse for Billy's language and behavior on that tape. NBC has decided to suspend Billy, pending further review of this matter."
Although there has been no official word on whether Bush will be back on the show, which he joined recently as a regular co-host, there is speculation lawyers at NBC are working on an exit agreement for him.
Bush apologized Friday for laughing and participating in the lewd conversation with Trump, which included references to his interest in other women and specific comments about Days of Our Lives actress Arianne Zucker -- who Bush and Trump met with immediately after having the recorded conversation.
"Obviously I'm embarrassed and ashamed," Bush said in a statement released by NBC News. "It's no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago -- I was younger, less mature and acted foolishly in playing along. I'm very sorry."
Norman Reedus on filming 'Walking Dead' game-changer: 'It was miserable'
Norman Reedus admits he didn't enjoy filming the scenes in which a beloved Walking Dead character is beaten to death with a barbed wire-covered, baseball bat.
Reedus' Daryl, as well as numerous other longtime characters, remain possible victims of villain Negan's cruelty. Negan -- played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan -- killed one of the show's regulars at the end of Season 6, but that finale ended in a cliff hanger.
The heart-wrenching murder is expected to be shown in the series' Season 7 premiere, which is set to air Oct. 23 on AMC.
Footage released during a fan event at New York Comic Con Saturday suggested Andrew Lincoln's Rick Grimes survived the ordeal, but it is unclear who else remains alive.
Asked by panel moderator Chris Hardwick what his character Daryl was thinking when he and his friends were rounded up by Negan and marked for death, Reedus replied: "That we're all going to die. That's what's going through everyone's head. We're outnumbered and it doesn't look good.
"It's a weird feeling to be that powerless when we've always fought to survive, and to just be put on our knees, and it doesn't look like we're going to get over that wall, you know what I mean? It's a horrible feeling. I hated shooting all of that. It was miserable. It sucked. It really did."
"You can get a ton of compliments that are so wonderful and feel so good, but then there's that one thing that somebody says that does rip you apart a little bit and you are jarred. And you rationalize it within yourself...but it's mystifying, the idea of somebody being cruel for the sake of attention, I guess?"

Which Oscar winning actor said that he'd like to punch Donald Trump in the face?
As part of a campaign to encourage people to vote, Robert De Niro spoke out against Donald Trump, saying he'd "like to punch him in the face."
The video, produced by Anonymous Content, aired on Friday's episode of The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly.
Anonymous Content produced a series of non-partisan interviews with various celebrities for the #VoteYourFuture campaign, and did not include De Niro's contribution because of its partisan content.
De Niro, who has been vocal about his disdain for the Republican presidential nominee, hurled a litany of insults at Trump, echoing Colin Powell's statements that Trump is "a national disaster."
"He's so blatantly stupid," De Niro said. "He's a punk. He's a dog. He's a pig. He's a con."
"He talks about how he wants to punch people in the face?" De Niro added. "Well I'd like to punch him in the face. This is someone we want for president? I don't think so."
He ended the rant by encouraging people to cast their vote.
"If you care about your future, vote for it," he said.
