Avenatti Denies TV Show In The Works After Being Seen Filming With Scaramucci
Michael Avenatti, the attorney for adult film star Stormy Daniels, denied on Saturday that he has a show in the works with former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.
Avenatti and Scaramucci were seen exiting Scaramucci’s Manhattan restaurant Friday evening with a “small reality TV crew” present, The Daily Mail reported. Prominent TV agent Jay Sures recently pitched network executives at CNN and MSNBC on the idea of a political show starring the two outspoken Italian-Americans, The New York Times reported on May 17.
“We are not filming any show or making any show. We are not planning any show. I don’t want a show. I’m not interested in a show,” Avenatti told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an email on Saturday. “I am focused on my cases and representing my clients.” (RELATED: With Avenatti In The Spotlight, His Own Questionable Past Emerges)
The same day that he was reportedly spotted filming with Avenatti, Scaramucci denied that any TV show was in the works. “I’m not doing a TV show with Avenatti, no,” he said in a Friday morning hit on “Fox & Friends.”
“I like people that have a full head of hair,” he explained.
Avenatti has become a darling of the establishment media since taking on Daniels as a client in her legal battles against President Donald Trump and Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen. (RELATED: Michael Avenatti’s Wife Swore In Court That He’s ‘Emotionally Abusive’)
In a two-month stretch, Avenatti appeared on CNN 59 times. The adult film star’s lawyer has earned nearly $200 million in free press since March 7, one estimate found.
