– THR Staff, “Labor Secretary Nominee’s Ex-Wife Claims He “Vowed Revenge” in Newly Public Clip From ‘Oprah’ Episode,” The Hollywood Reporter, Feb. 15, 2017
CABINET/LABOR/TRUMP PEOPLE/ANDREW PUDZER: “Labor Secretary nominee Andrew Puzder’s confirmation could be in jeopardy following the release of a 1990 episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show in which Puzder’s ex-wife makes claims of domestic abuse against him. A clip from the episode, which is currently being reviewed in the Senate, was published by Politico on Wednesday [2-15-17].
Lisa Fierstein used the alias ‘Ann’ and wears a wig and sunglasses in the episode, entitled ‘High Class Battered Women.’
‘The most frightening thing was leaving, because once I made that break and once I made it public, and remember my ex-husband was a public figure and everyone knew him and knew what he was doing, and once I made that public, he vowed revenge,’ alleged Fierstein. ‘He said, *I will see you in the gutter. This will never be over. You will pay for this.*’ “
