Chris Hardwick Scaring Away All The Chicks At Work

The show about zombies has turned into a zombie itself, The Walking Dead refuses to die. It was watchable in the beginning, but the activity that goes on surrounding the show is more interesting than anything that has happened on the actual show. Chris Hardwick is the star of Talking Dead, a tough to watch […] The post Chris Hardwick Scaring Away All The Chicks At Work appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. The show about zombies has turned into a zombie itself, The Walking Dead refuses to die. It was watchable in the beginning, but the activity that goes on surrounding the show is more interesting than anything that has happened on the actual show. Chris Hardwick is the star of Talking Dead, a tough to watch 44 minutes that airs after The Walking Dead. Most people only succumb to suffering through it against their will because they’ve misplaced the remote after not keeping tabs on it for an entire hour. Hardwick managed to make 25 employees plus a female executive producer quit all by himself. Which is honestly more fascinating to me than watching Jeffrey Dean Morgan dress up as Danny Zuko and Barry Bonds the brains out of all opposing protagonists almost every episode. Chris Hardwick isn’t getting a warm welcome back to work. Staffers at his show “Talking Dead” are quitting in protest over Hardwick’s Sunday return — two months after an ex-girlfriend accused him of mistreating her. A female executive producer and a “handful” of the show’s staff of approximately 25 have fled since AMC announced Hardwick would resume his role as host of the “Walking Dead” after show, according to a new report. The “Talking Dead” fallout comes days after Hardwick’s first TV appearance — on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” — since actress Chloe Dykstra penned an essay in June accusing him of sexual and emotional abuse. Hardwick is reportedly working to regain the support of the remaining “Talking” staffers. Someone get Chris a Louisville Slugger and jacket from Schott NYC. TWD deserves another spinoff. I rather put up with a season’s worth of Grease-chic Hardwick being a combination of smug and menacing to his once significant other than another season of a poorly showered Andrew Lincoln always saving the day. We get it, people are shitty when shit hits the fan. But we didn’t sign up for hour long parables on virtue in a post apocalyptic world, we want more of the mindless gore that always comes promised with zombies. Below is a link to the words written by Chris’ ex-lover that almost ended his career. There’s a trigger warning, so if you’re a reader with vibrantly colored hair and/or you constantly call your 300 plus pound female figure “sexy af,” don’t click. Essay written by ex-girlfriend Chloe Dykstra accusing Chris Hardwick of misconduct.  Photo Credit: Getty Images  The post Chris Hardwick Scaring Away All The Chicks At Work appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?......»»

Chris Hardwick"s Wife Lydia Hearst Breaks Her Silence On Chloe Dykstra"s Abuse Allegations!

Lydia Hearst is supporting — but not defending — her husband Chris Hardwick amid the fallout from his ex-girlfriend's abuse allegations.

Hardwick's career has taken a bit of a nosedive in the week since actress and TV personality Chloe Dykstra accused an unnamed ex-boyfriend of emotional and sexual abuse. AMC pulled his show Talking with Chris Hardwick and he was fired from moderating two panels at San Diego Comic-Con in July. Related: Chloe Thanks Her Supporters After Chris's Denial But Hearst, who wed the disgraced nerd icon in 2016, is sticking by his side -- and attempting to do so while maintaining the importance of the #MeToo movement and believing women. In a statement to People, she explained: "This is not a statement in defense, this is a statement of defense. Defense for all the women who have been sexually abused, raped, trafficked, and tortured; defense of all the people who this movement was started for. Over the last year the #MeToo movement has rightly aimed a spotlight directly on women whose stories needed to be told. As someone who has been involved in toxic relationships in the past, I know first hand the importance of sharing these stories and do not take this situation lightly." Hardwick denied Dykstra's version of their relationship days after her essay was published on Medium. He admitted that while their three-year relationship was messy, he stood firm that at "no time did I sexually assault her." Related: Chris' Team Says These Breakup Texts Discredit Chloe Hearst, for her part, said she wasn't defending her husband's actions because that would be "giving credence" to Dykstra's claims. Instead, she vowed to support Hardwick -- a "good man" who's been "nothing but loving and compassionate" to her -- and made it clear she believes in due process. She continued: "I have made the decision to come out in support of my husband not out of obligation, but out of necessity to speak the truth about the person I know. Chris is nothing but loving and compassionate and is the only person who has stood by me, never judged me, helped me heal, and feel whole. To defend my husband would be giving credence to any of these accusations. I will not do that. Chris Hardwick is a good man. I remain in complete support of my husband, and I believe that the truth will always win. #TimesUp because I know my truth and I believe in due process." Thoughts??
