I agree. Its hard to call someone in CRISIS, when no one knows where you are. I guess Dave's writing partner doesn't get feelings or get to feel betrayed. Don't you think his writing partner feels screwed. I feel bad that Dave was having a melt down, but just because you have a melt down, it doesn't mean it doesn't hurt other people in the process. How about all the people that worked at his show. Like Camera men, Stage crew etc etc. Dave isn't the only human who felt screwed(he actually screwed a lot of people in the process)
Dave may not have 50 million(he has a mansion in rural ohio) in his bank account, but he has more than the camera men and many other workers who worked at the Chapelle show. Like the other poster said, celebrities have friends and family who has problems too.
I have no clue how many people worked on Dave's show. Not a clue. But Oprah has over 1,000 employees. What if she just left??(Don't worry, she isn't going anywhere to my dismay. Just vacation with Gayle, I now think Nate also joins with them along with Jennifer Anistion, Jay Leno, John Travalota, Halle Berry, Kristy Alley and at this point probably prh ) Think about all of the people who would lose jobs. There are probably people who work at her show that make $25,000-$40,000. (I was going to use her "mail room" people, but that would be a bad example, because someone outside Harpo would have to hire, more people, who would like to know "Where the hell is Oprah" I wouldn't because I watch Entertainment Tonight, Inside Edition, Access Hollywood, Extra, and The Insider). So let's say that Chapelle show employes 50 people. Well, if you have 2 kids and wife and now don't have $40,000. I wouldn't be too happy.
