CNBC anchor Amanda Drury, you've been a bad girl.
As such, you now will be sued.
William Morris Endeavor Entertainment filed a lawsuit for commissions against Drury, who also appears on NBC's Today Show.
The agency says Drury was represented by them during her negotiations with CNBC from October 2009 through April 2010, which resulted in her getting paid, in a lucrative four-year deal. But apparently the Australian journalist didn't pay the agency its 10 percent cut.
Drury, who hosts Street Signs, apparently thanked WME for its job "well done," says the Hollywood Reporter, but then left them hanging, eventually terminating the agency in December 2010. Since then, she has refused to pay any commissions and refused to acknowledge that she owes them anything.
This seems pretty cut and dry, right? I mean, she had an agency, they got her a deal, she didn't pay...what am I missing here? I'd think that being a host of a financial show and then doing shady business that is brought public would be a really, really bad move, but who knows. Maybe it is the new thing to do.
WME places the damages at a minimum of $150,000.
The lawsuit is being conducted through the New York court system.
