It looks like NBC and Megyn Kelly have just about finished up their talks to have Kelly exit the network and do so quietly.
Word is that the Peacock is will to pay Kelly more than $30 million bucks, which is the full value left on the three-year, $69 million contract with the network.
NBC was hoping to get Kelly to leave for a lot less, but sources say Kelly was not going to go quietly and NBC was forced to give her the full amount.
Then against, NBC made the huge mistake of hiring her in the first place, so it’s not like they didn’t deserve this.
As for Kelly, she leaves with more money than she will ever need. But what she does need is attention and she will do anything she can to get it.
Kelly has been sucking up to anyone she can at Fox News in hopes of getting back where she can talk about “blackface” and have no worries about repercussions.
Fox could get Kelly for next to nothing, because again, for Kelly it’s all about attention at this point. She needs the spotlight like she needs oxygen. Fox News could offer her $30,000 bucks year and Kelly would take it.
But, here’s hoping that FNC is smarter than that and hoping that Megyn Kelly just goes away for good.
But we have a feeling that OAN or Sinclair might step in with an offer.
