...and he can take his sociopath of a husband with him.
Rudin's bad behavior definitely seemed to have been a guide book for his spouse on how to demoralize his own staff.
The spouse's sudden departure and consolidation of the NYC industry office that he created always made me wonder if there was more drama to the story of why he stepped away...
It wouldn't surprise me AT ALL if he did/said something to someone that put the agency at risk of litigation as long as his involvement there continued. In the official 2009 press release announcing his departure from his own agency, he mentioned creating a consultancy group.. which has no internet footprint whatsoever.
This agency was also the one who handled Foster's Thoroughly Modern Millie and Young Frankenstein... providing her with an almost 20 year business relationship with these men, so it isn't surprising at all to me that she has been careful with her public statements.
Seems like he just became a goiter on Rudin's neck at awards shows rather than continuing to work in the industry.. makes me wonder why. They can both rot in hell.
