One of the best-known television personalities in the news business, Katie Couric, has a long history of undeniable success as a broadcast journalist. Although she succeeds in her professional career, her social life tells an entirely different story. Journalist Sheila Weller exposed Couric’s true nature.
Weller explained that Katie terrorized former news anchor Ann Curry by disapproving of her clothing right before going on air, just to throw her off balance. Couric was so cruel, and an NBC producer once said that no one wanted her to come back.
A Bad Tipper and Tough Director
Director M. Night Shyamalan has never had the most excellent reputation in Hollywood; even the extras on his set know that he's hard to work with. “I was an extra in one of his movies, and he made a HUGE show of walking around and chatting up all the women.
Couldn't be bothered to look the men in the eyes,” a Reddit user wrote about the director. Not only that, but Shyamalan is also a lousy tipper who expects the most when sitting at a restaurant.
Tobey Maguire Said What?!
Whoever thought that portraying a superhero meant that you're a genuinely good person hasn't met Tobey Maguire. The actor managed to make headlines in the summer of 2014 when poker hostess Molly Bloom called him out for his behavior at the table.
In addition to describing Spiderman as the "worst tipper" and a "sore loser," Bloom revealed a rather disturbing story. Maguire had once told Bloom to "bark like a seal who wants a fish" in exchange for a thousand-dollar chip...and the worst part is, he wasn't kidding!
She Doesn't Practice What She Preaches
Ellen DeGeneres ends each episode of her very successful talk show by telling her audience to be kind to one another. Ironic since we know that the host doesn't practice what she preaches. Throughout the years, many stories have surfaced demonstrating that DeGeneres may as well be one of the meanest people alive.
After podcast producer Kevin T. Porter posted to Twitter asking people to share their most insane stories regarding Ellen, he was overwhelmed with the answers. One person responded that after she served DeGeneres brunch, the talk show host complained about the server's chipped nail polish, nearly costing the woman her job.
A Pushy MVP
Warning! This next one may break your heart! An MVP both on and off the court, Michael Jordan is reportedly a pretty lousy human when it comes to his fans. We're sorry to be the bearers of bad news - but this hero once pushed an old lady when she approached him and asked for an autograph.
He's notorious for making outrageous demands when dining at restaurants and then refusing to leave any tip.
