E! is paying plenty of lips service to both the #TimesUp plus #MeToo movements on its pre-Golden Globes red carpet coverage.
But the network probably didn’ big t expect Debra Messing to contact them on the carpet (pardon the particular pun) for not paying female serves the same as their male counterparts.
The “ Will and Grace” star was being interviewed by Giuliana Rancic and explaining the main targets of #TimesUp.
“ Time increased, ” she said. “ We would like diversity, we want intersectional gender parity [and] we want identical pay. ”
Messing then known as out E! for the way this treated Catt Sadler , longtime host of the enjoyment channel’ s “ E! Information. ”
Sadler quit the particular show in December after she uncovered her male co-host, Jason Kennedy, “ produced close to double my salary within the past several years. ”
“ I was so shocked to hear that will E! doesn’ t believe in paying out their female co-host the same as their particular male co-host, ” Messing stated. “ I miss Catt Sadler. So we stand with her. Plus that’ s something that can change the next day. We want people to start having this particular conversation that women are just as important as men. ”

In December, the network told HuffPost it “ compensates employees pretty and appropriately based on their tasks, regardless of gender. ”
Playing joins Brie Larson, Jennifer Lawrence and Eva Longoria within expressing support for Sadler.
On Sunday, Amy Schumer posted a pic on Instagram Sunday morning asking her other performers to ask E! over the red carpet why they wouldn’ t pay Sadler the same as the girl male counterpart.
