NBC Hits Gold Prodding Ari Emanuel

March 26, 2013

Ari Emanuel was apparently so unhappy with an interview with Brian Williams that he sent NBC a “fiery legal letter,” in which he wrote “This was not what we agreed to.”The Emanuel brothers sat down with Williams on “Rock Center with Brian Williams” to talk about bioethicist Ezekiel’s new book, Brothers Emanuel: A Memoir of an American Family. Williams adopted a far more serious interview tone than the Emanuels were expecting, with the discussions becoming so heated that Ari wrote a letter to NBC and submitted a complaint in person to NBC Universal chief Steve Burke. The Emanuels were reportedly prepped for a lighthearted chat, bu instead  Williams asked the brothers “about their connection to Israel and Ari’s  reputation as an ultra-aggressive Hollywood agent, among other things.”
NBC hits Gold.

Rahm Emanuel Booted Off Chicago Ballot For Mayor, Ari’s Phone Must Be Off The Hook

January 24, 2011

Attorneys for Rahm Emanuel late today asked the Illinois Supreme Court to prevent Chicago elections officials from printing ballots for the Feb. 22 mayor’s election without his name.

Emanuel’s legal team also said they will ask the state’s highest court on Tuesday to hear their appeal of a decision by an appellate court today to knock him off the ballot on the grounds he doesn’t meet residency requirements.

Chicago elections officials said today they have to begin printing the 2 million or so ballots needed for the election as well as preparing electronic voting machines for early voting that begins next Monday.

“I have no doubt at the end we’ll prevail in this effort,” Emanuel said at a news conference. “We’ll now go to the next level to get clarity.”

In a 2-1 ruling, the appellate panel said Emanuel does not meet the residency requirement of having lived in Chicago for a year prior to the election. The judges reversed a decision by the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners, which had unanimously agreed that Emanuel was eligible to run for mayor.

Rahm Emanuel’s brother Ari must be getting angry calls from Hollywood heavy weights questioning what happens to their money.

 

Eye View Hollywood, Ari Is Getting His Entourage Together To Help His Brother Rahm, What Are They Drinking?

October 24, 2010

Five well-known Hollywood Democrats — David Geffen, Bob Iger, Peter Chernin, Haim Saban, and Ari Emanuel — are hosting a November 4th fundraiser for Ari’s brother Rahm Emanuel in his bid to become Chicago’s next mayor. Rahm, a former Democratic U.S. Representative from Illinois’ 5th Congressional District, resigned as President Obama’s White House Chief Of Staff on October 1st. The Hollywood fundraiser will be held at Saban’s palatial Beverly Hills home.

 Geffen is the former DreamWorks SKG partner and longtime music and film mogul. Iger is the CEO of the Walt Disney Company. Chernin is the former No. 2 of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp and now a busy Fox TV and film producer. Saban is a private equity investor and entertainment producer best known for making the Power Rangers television show into a worldwide hit.  And Ari is the co-CEO of WME Entertainment investment banking and the personality used for Ari Gold in the HBO show Entourage.

Technically, Emanuel has not physically resided in Chicago for the previous 365 days and is not eligible to run for mayor, so California residents donating money for local Chicago issues makes just has much sense. What are they drinking????
