Sumner was ninety two years what brought them down, and they just settled this legal dispute. Okay. And. He's not getting any of her money eases. These ladies okay down. I'm curious down was that they were so confident Sydney and Manuela of being Sumner Redstone, principal gatekeeper and beneficiaries that. They decided to reveal their roles in June twenty fifteen issue of Vanity Fair. Remember this called endless summer, and they pose for photos the kings seductive in evening. Dresses, Holland in Pasadena, Manuela at bam. Bam woman's bar at the Carlyle hotel downstairs in the multi dollar pertinent. Redstone had bought for her. They were proud to share. How important they were to Redstone in. The course of reporting the story. They kept saying, you know, we keep track of everybody who goes in and out who's who didn't and Sherry Redstone when she read that article felt shutout and it is a big red flag to her. And that's when she started filing affidavits that she felt she was getting cut off from her father. And that these two ladies were pulling smoke over the guys is. Yeah. And so they went back and forth back and forth. These two ladies. The agreement. The trial was gonna start next week in LA and under the agreement. Manuela has to pay back three point two five million dollars in gifts. She has to withdraw her objection to the removal from Redstone trust. And it is ends three years of legal wrangling, which led to all kinds of intimate disclosures regarding family squabbles as well as Sumners health, and guess you'll never guess who introduced Sidney Holland to Sumner Redstone in two thousand and eleven two thousand and eleven thousand ten they met Trump. No guests. Sydney became southerners living girlfriend in two thousand eleven year after they'd been introduced by Patty stinger, millionaire. So she does have a track record. You did work. Okay. How Redstone at the time was eighty nine. His insanity was what thirty no sh-. Yeah. I don't know. How old she was? And he already had already had a thing with, you know, the other one men Wella, but he was I mean there were so many stories that came out like I'm looking at one story that came out in page six two years ago, how he was obsessive about wanting to have sex, and he had women on five thousand dollars a month. Retainers would come to his Beverly Hills mansion, and he was even ordered by his doctors you can't have sex because it's going to here on a feeding tube. Oh. And he we were just talking about Larry Ellison from oracle. So Sumner had a termite breakout in his Beverly park home. So he rented Larry Ellison's oceanfront home in Malibu for six months while they got rid of the infestation at Beverly park, and he became obsessive about wanting to have sex and Manuela. I think. Yeah. I know it she met red zone after his wife initiated divorce hearings, and then they dated for like two years, but he really liked her. She was open to introducing other women him sexually off. So um fakes and and anyway, and she got him to designate her as her healthcare agent somewhere along the line. How did you sign these papers baby baby? Yeah. And she was only kicked out of his home. Like December of two thousand sixteen. So this wrangling has been going on for a long time and in Malibu read. So he wanted her to always be over there. And, you know, find me somebody to have sex with and how can a guy with the feeding tube can't move have sex. I don't know. There's no sacks. I don't either. Yeah. Anyway, he wasn't really able to communicate. He's anyway. And I think that the family was able to. I mean, you know, like this Manuela filed filed a Rico lawsuit against cherry Redstone, accusing them of conspiring with Sumners nurses to illegally. Eavesdrop on her while she was living at the home, and she peeled that. And then. Basically, she has to drop her appeal, both the ladies boss, and he is the guardian ad-litem who kind of represents because there's so much money. There is so much because if you remember the ordered to move out of the new apartment, I mean, he's he's now ninety five and anyway, these two ladies if they could undo that Vanity Fair story, and they're braggadocious bragging about how they conned an older man in designing all the money away from his two children and take him. Yeah. It's pretty interesting because he when he bought Viacom, it was a it was a spin off of CBS and he bought that. And then he bought Paramount Pictures where Tom Cruise came. And he was engaged in a bidding war with Barry Diller in that. And he paid four billion dollars at the time for paramount. And then CBS the former parent company, Viacom, he ended up buying CBS. But then CBS got bought out, and he remained the CEO of Viacom and CBS. And that's what les Moonves has was fighting to get that will that cherry Redstone had being over both companies. That's what they were positioning leads Munoz's before his demise. He wanted to get that wall aware from Sherry. That's right. So yeah. And and if you think the names in here Laurie member when we carry Lansing on the first head of a studio Redstone replaced her team of Jonathan dole. Learn Sherry Lansing at paramount. I mean, he he's just he was in everything. Dabs the money. Yeah. And he was estranged at the time with his daughter. They had periods of a strange because she had I mean, she could have been seeing that her dad was like, maybe not altogether there. That's a lot of money, and you're going to be prey to stuff, but it was the two girlfriends that decided to have the feeding tube installed. And apparently that is when Sumner Redstone quality of life changed forever. Why would they she wasn't involved? The daughter was strange, and he so he's you know, that changed everything. And I don't know if the family would have decided to do that. But they basically made an intensive care unit in his house and. It's pretty interesting. Yeah. It's it's supposedly a sex tape. Made by one of Sumners handles handlers inside Beverly park, it shows just a naked red zone watching to women kiss and. Yeah. There you make. I guess no matter what even if he's been a strange on and offers had fights with his daughter. I guess it's better that his family is back in control. Well, yeah. Ladies because the one woman Sydney. She was engaged to this guy. She'd set up in a house in Sedona that Sumner bought for her for three million dollars. He was engaged to this guy named Scott pilgrim. And when he saw the Vanity Fair story. He's like, wait a second. I thought I was engaged. He didn't even know he was involved with Sumner. He didn't know where she was. She made up some story about how she was getting the money to fly private to Sedona every couple couple of times a week. And it wasn't until that Vanity Fair story came out that boom. Oh, it's pretty it. Could be a movie. Oh, what happened? Oh, and yes, it could Lori and he was apparently at one time in a horrible fire at Copley place. Yeah. That was when he was younger. He went to Harvard Law School. No, it's it's a it's a good story. Yeah. He was like dangling off the window out the window. That's how his hand got well, less moon vans. Just to let people know his Wikipedia page has been updated and it has the whole sexual misconduct allegations. He actually pretty much in the second paragraph. Yeah. Yeah. So anyway, the ex companions are out then Fini of you can see how people would just go in. And boy, I've got a I've got a. Yeah. And the one the one who just got the that they settled today she had she'd been in an arrangement with him. Way before he was incapacitated. So there was something there between them, but he might have. Taken on a little bit too much and trying to insist that she remained the guardian. Right. And I was wrong. Sherry Redstone, vice chairman of CBS and a member of the Redstone family, which owns the majority share of CBS, and they were trying to get her out of that will put let's move as their. That's right. Thank you. Joe? Okay. My head is spinning how about yours. We'll be right back. Fascinating stuff, the Laurie it. Yeah. All right. When we come back. We get some other headlines of the day. Mammograms safe. Do they prevent breast cancer.

"Now for the venture bonus a chat with journalist and author her new book king of content is about the media empire built by Sumner. Redstone? So I am going to assume or guests that you've watched succession on. Oh, yeah. Because, you know, a lot of people, including me, we watch succession about this family from the father is this lion of with big media company, and they see Murdoch. But also there's a lot of Redstone in there. Oh, yeah. The whole debt crisis thing was pure Redstone, and you know, the capacity question, but being struggle Sumner Redstone is complemented. Right. Well, so let's back up Sumner. Redstone built this empire. At one point CBS Viacom under the same roof. And then he split them apart and the troubles at that point. It seems to me really started to begin. That's true. I mean that was in two thousand six in some ways the troubles that are playing out. Now, I think they started when Sumner moved to LA which was a few about three years before that moved away from his New York and Boston people adrift in the hill. Exactly. And you know, he like had a womanizing issue and got himself into some trouble. First of all hate, let's stop for a minute with the marriage that he had to fill us his wife of many years. I mean, not that he was dutiful husband by any means. In fact, one of the surprising things in the book. I think is how under covered allegations of emotional and physical abuse Phyllis were that you recount even based on on their daughter. Shari's emails. That's right. Although it's not just emails Sumner, and fellas we're constantly suing each other divorce, and then retracting it back and forth. They had a very volatile relationship. But he also had a whole basically all second family for like thirty years with his mistress DASA winer, but the allegations in the final divorce were definitely that was physical.

"But what I'm getting at is you have this way of uncovering in these interviews, some of the most important information that we can all learn from. How did you become such a great interviewer, like, where does it come from his that a skill that we can all learn, or is that unique to you? I hired somebody to watch my interviews. I'll tell you like, I didn't know that where this came from and I actually for a long time was beating myself up for the reason that this worked. I didn't. I thought it was a flaw mine. I hired someone to lis- to go through the transcripts of each week's interview and give me feedback point by point, and I created this Google doc of all the things that I learned from him at one point. I, I'm just so tired of it. I'm just so tired. He goes, what are you? Tired of, I, I'm so tired of being vulnerable guy every other interviewers, just like the build up your reputation by being someone bigger and look at this in the transcript. I talk about like how I can't figure it out. I don't have the answer. Nobody aspires to put someone like that on their wall the way that I put Sumner Redstone on my wall, I'm tired of being that guy and look in comparison. The person who I'm interviewing gets to be the hero, and I'm the person who so flawed. Why do I have to be such a flawed wimp all the time in these interviews? And he said, gimme him in. It said, I just like poured my heart out. You need a minute. Can you just say something's give me a minute? They just kept going through the transcript. I was one of the things that I disliked about him was he didn't do his homework. He didn't go and read the transcript ahead of time, but at least he was a fast reader who can go through every transcript superfast on the call, and he said, scroll down a little bit. So you know, in Google docs, if you click on someone's face, you can go to where their mouse is. So I did that and he goes, you see, this says you up there in the transcript. You real vulnerability and the guest responded by being strong. But notice how later on the guest went and got Boehner -able the guest went in and started to talk about themselves in started just say, things that they wouldn't say. Otherwise. He said, if you're expecting that because you're vulnerable immediately, someone's going to tell you the truth of who they are, that they don't wanna share with anyone. You're wrong. It's not going to happen that way. But if you give it time, you're creating the atmosphere where people can really be themselves and get on Rable. And so. The answer is that that I just really want to get to know the entrepreneur really wanna get to know beyond the BS. I really do admire the people who I have on. And I think that by being Boehner -able I get to do that. And the start of the podcast was this post that I did, and anyone can see mix or dot com slash, I dash failed. Like failed where I said, I, I poured money into this invitation site and it didn't work, and I admit failure and I've got to close it down. So I can just start fresh and I'm just going to interview people to understand how to never fail like this again. And that was the mission to see what they're really doing. Interview you remember the very first interview was a guy named Michael arou- who happened to come to an event that I did, and he was a chiropractor who is just killing it in SEO and the SEO world people knew about him back when people didn't even care that that search engine optimization SEO was thing. And I said, if everyone knew who was coming to my events because I was organizing events using my invitation software, they wanna come to my, they'd want organize events. They wanna get to know people. So I interviewed him. I liked it and then I just kept interviewing other people. The one that turned me though was. After this collection of software companies, I created an online invitation and Email marketing company. We got to over twenty million Email addresses.

Comment on pieces that we haven't yet published but could be out if it's not already sources with knowledge of the. Article. Say delves into a broader culture at. CBS and will publish later today on. The magazine's website statement, CBS has said it is investigating the claims made against moon vs all allegations of personal misconduct. Are to be taken Very seriously now Ronin is not one. To report these things without a good deal of research right he's he's been shown his track record is pretty good All right so the concern here is what about. His? Relationship with Julie Chen. And that's workplace married now jeeze All right so that it's still weird I'm assuming this has to do with others? Yeah Assuming too but it. Did OBI already you wonder how they got. Together Exactly Underlying and you would see that as a pattern of, conduct even though it created a, marriage it's was a pattern of. Conduct they're still so. Concerning. Right. Absolutely considering she still works is that is that? New they're just, out comes out. Today I surprised I missed. It is? It did it just come? Out In the last two hours that's. Why Mr. the CBS has added that. The timing of this report comes in the, midst of the company's very public legal dispute and while that litigation process, continues the CBS management team has, the full support of independent board. Members along with that. Team. We. Will continue to focus on creating value for our? Shareholders maybe I'm, not understanding what. Very public so they have a dispute? With les Moonves don't they Disputes it's. Going on right now and that's, why they're questioning the timing of this article I have to to dig in a little. More I'll look during your next door has been married to. Julie Chen since two thousand four they. Wed less than two weeks after moon finalized, his divorce His wife pattern that's a. Pattern I just say the but I guess is there any unwanted kissing touching is that what it was well apparently, Ronan. Farrow, who broke the story has been investigating Moonves and the environment at CBS four months as rumors swirled through the industry that's such an. Article was in the works. It's unclear what impact the New Yorker report will have. At a time when moon vez locked in litigation. With Sherry Redstone oh that's the lawsuit that they're talking about the wife of Sumner Redstone, or the daughter rather who's fighting for control of CBS Viacom She she put Unloaded some, interesting is Very scary dramatic yeah but the I'm just trying to get my head around the unwanted kitchen kissing and touching in a time when men may not have been aware that you? Know what I mean it depend how unwanted touching was what kind of touching or does he, just, fire. Charlie rose right No So I'm assuming this is relatively.
