Pugs and Kelly.
I missed the actual moment it happened during their talk show on Friday afternoon, but I was listening when they returned from break scrambling to get all the equipment up and going again. Pugs apparently lost his temper over something and called Kelly a bitch. That brought an immediate "asshole" reply from Kelly. Pugs then went into full pantie wad mode and stormed off the stage during the live broadcast from Rockfish in Dallas, tearing loose cables and toppling equipment during his exit. The event, which they heavily promoted, was to feature a live appearance from members of Broken Lizzard to promote their new movie Slammin Salmon.
The video is archived on ustream, but the tin can/kite string connection I have to the interwebs prevents me from watching. But I hear it kicks in at the 36 minute mark.
According to their Twitter feeds Pugs & Kelly will no longer be on the air as a team. They apparently have drawn a line down the middle of the studio, more or less, and will be alternating days as host until the end of the year. At that time Kelly will be hosting a new program solo.
No news on Pugs' future yet. But, I do have an opinion. He screwed the pooch.
What was the straw that broke the camel's back? Whether Tiger Woods looks more Black or Asian and the origin of MSNBC. More info at Richie Whitt's blog.
