Pauley takes on the Big Dog

During my travels, gossip continued outside of the UK.  I heard lots about Pauley Perrette’s tearful farewell to NCIS.  Days later came word that her departure had been precipitated by “multiple physical assaults”.  “I refuse to go low, that’s why I’ve never told publicly what happened.”  She added, “Maybe I’m wrong for not ‘spilling the beans’.  Telling the story, THE TRUTH.  I feel I have to protect my crew, jobs and so many people.  But at what cost.  I don’t know.  Just know, I’m trying to do the right thing, but maybe silence isn’t the right thing about crime.”  Via Tweet she added, “There is a ‘machine’ keeping me silent, and feeding FALSE stories about me.  A very rich, very powerful publicity ‘machine’.  No morals, no obligations to truth, and I’m just left here, reading the lies, trying to protect my crew.  Trying to remain calm.  He did it.  I’ve been supporting anti-bullying programs forever.  But now I KNOW because it was ME!  If it’s school or work, that you’re required to go to?  It’s horrifying.  I left.  Multiple Physical Assaults.  I REALLY get it now.  Stay safe.  Nothing is worth your safety.  Tell someone.” 

We did a bit of digging and our sources say that the physical abuse happened at the hands of Mark Harmon’s DOG!  Allegedly, Harmon brought the dog to the set, a crew member was playing with him, got bit and required 15 stitches.  After that, many people were unhappy that Harmon continued to bring the dog to the set, but since he’s also a producer on the show, they didn’t feel comfortable criticizing him.  We hear that Pauley had no such trepidation, which led to a schism between the two.  Ever since then, Harmon and Perrette have refused to work together, and any scenes including them both were the result of editing magic!  Here’s my two cents.  I do know Pauley Perrette.  Each of the seven years I hosted LA Pride, Pauley was a member of our team.  She showed up, she did what she could, she was great.  I know firsthand she’s a terrific, genuine, real person with a heart of gold, and I’m inclined to believe everything she says – and doesn’t say.
