As Crippling Hollywood Strike Looms, SAG Union Chief Fran Drescher Parties in Italy with Kim Kardashian


It may be the picture of the year: SAG AFTRA union president actress Fran Drescher living it up in Italy with the dreaded Kim Kardashian.

There is outrage all over the press and social media because SAG AFTRA may go on strike tomorrow night, turning a lot of lives inside out.

Kardashian, a despicable person on so many levels, has been thumbing her nose at the Writers Guild strike for the last almost three months. She’s got an ‘acting” job in Ryan Murphy’s “American Horror Story” TV series, which is still filming despite efforts by the union to shut it down.

The one time Mrs. Kanye West arrives on the set in a chauffeur driven Escalade with windows blackened out drives right though the picket line. Her “let ’em eat cake” attitude is loathed.

Now she’s infected Drescher. The union says “The Nanny” star was scheduled to be in Italy for a Dolce and Gabbana promotion., so it’s okay with them. But I doubt it’s okay with 160,000 SAG members who are terrified of being without pay starting Wednesday — not to mention the WGA, and all the waves of people who will be affected by a strike. While Nanny Fine and Ms. Sex Tape were eating gelato, Variety reports that SAG execs got on the phone yesterday with all the publicists in town explaining to them how soon they will be cut off from incomes.

Fran should know the Kardashians are a flesh eating illness that will destroy you– just look at their wake. No one gets out alive, except them.
