Tv Bosses Defend Outrageous Mizrahi

Bosses at US cable channel E! are standing by controversial fashion designer ISAAC MIZRAHI after he was publicly criticised for risque acts and comments at the Golden Globe Awards last week (16JAN06).

Mizrahi groped actresses TERI HATCHER and SCARLETT JOHANSSON, asked EVA LONGORIA about her pubic hair and insisted on prying in handbags as he co-hosted E!'s red carpet coverage.

But TV executives have booked the style king for their upcoming Oscar night coverage in March (06).

Although none of the stars have complained about Mizrahi's conduct, officials at America's Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) have complained about comments Mizrahi made to CHARLIZE THERON about her Oscar-winning performance in MONSTER, during which he called her character "a scary dyke with bad teeth".

A spokesman for the network says, "We wanted someone who would bring surprises."

But bosses at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which runs the Oscars, are planning to discuss E!'s coverage in a bid to make sure their guests aren't insulted by Mizrahi.

Spokesman JOHN PAVLIK says, "We would be extraordinarily angry if that sort of thing happened on our red carpet."
