Bruce Vilanch (Hollywood Squares, Get Bruce!):
"She has a right to say what she wants, but Paramount has no need to make money off of it. As a stockholder in Viacom, I object to them -- and me -- making a profit off of her show, so I don't think they should air it. I am as Jewish as she is, and I'm here to tell you she's nuts. It's a 'shonda' for the Jews, as my mother would say. It's bad for the Jews. She is about as good for the Jews as Adolph Eichman. I don't like this woman at all. To hide behind Judaism to spew hatred is acting like one of the lower forms of life. If she wants to call me a biological error, then I can call her a Nazi bitch."
Eric McCormick (Will & Grace):
"It's one of those knife-edge ones. It's a freedom of speech thing, but from moment one she's just been a pain in the ass and an enemy to this community. She doesn't put enough good out there to counter the bad she puts out. It's a balance thing, and it doesn't balance."
Tim Daly (Wings, which was filmed at Paramount, Execution of Justice):
"I think Dr. Laura has said some really stupid, stupid things, but also, under our Constitution, she has the right to say stupid things. I don't think she should necessarily be censored, because no one should be censored."
Julia Louis Dreyfus (Seinfeld):******************
"Tonight I am here to salute a truly and unique woman, who has done more to galvanize the gay and lesbian community and their supporters than even she knows, a woman who has united us and inspired us to action. I'm talking, of course about the one and only Dr. Laura Schlessinger. [Hoots and catcalls] If only she were here to have heard that outpouring of affection. Dr. Laura, thank you for bringing us all together.
Though some may call her a hypocrite. She speaks out against adultery, although she lived with her husband for nine years before getting married. She tirades against divorce, even though she is divorced. She claims to be a devoted practicing Jew while forgetting the biblical admonition, 'Judge not lest ye be judged.'
In spite of all that, I choose to call her an inspiration, both on the
radio and in her best-selling book, Ten Stupid Things Women Do To Mess
Up Their Lives. I understand she's adding a new chapter entitled, 'Keep
the Fucking Negatives.'"
