Socialite Jules Kirby is accusing the CW show High Society of editing her to make her look like “a stupid b**ch”, but RadarOnline.com has obtained videos and an email that may prove differently.
High Society chronicles the daily life of socialite Tinsley Mortimer and her friends including Jules.
On the show’s debut, Jules says she uses the “N” word, only dates white guys and “my friends tend not to be homosexuals and unattractive people and fat people.”
After being bombarded with complaints, Jules responded to The New York Post saying “I am sorry if you were offended. The show is scripted, and we are given lines and characters. My grandmother is married to a Jew . . . Everything was cut and pasted to make it look like I was a stupid bitch, and I regret that they do not do a better job of saying it is a docusoap, not a reality show."
But RadarOnline.com has obtained an email that is not only offensive, but clearly racist:
Right after being introduced to her producer over the phone, Jules emailed the production company asking this:
“Is ---------- black, Asian? Jewish? A lesbian? Muslim? Super ugly? The reason I ask is that these things would offend the person greeter if they were around friends and myself included on a regular basis. We say a lot of tings as I think censorship has never been inert in us. Will you send me a photo along with stats please?
And the videotape clips are equally offensive: They both are provided here.
In her interview video, Jules says “I don’t have a censor button.”
About Jews, she says “If I have a friend who’s Jewish, I make fun of them and it’s ok.”
About Blacks, she says, “I use the ‘N” word sometimes and think it should be ok to say. If a guy can say ‘wh**e’ then, you should be able to say the ‘N’ word…I say it like I say dude.”
And she goes on to say “I’m not exactly racist, it’s not that I hate gay people.”
In the video clips, featured in the second episode of the show that airs Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. EDT, she berates a hotel maid. When Jules had to turn some monogrammed pillow cases around, she said “this is clearly upside down. In our country, we don’t spell upside down.”
And later in the video, the hotel manager throws her out because of her behavior.
High Society Executive Producer Andrew Glassman tells RadarOnline.com “the comments in questions were not taken out of context, or edited together to create a false impression. These statements were not scripted by, and are not condoned by, any member of the production. Viewers of the series will see that these actions and attitudes do lead to real-world consequences.”
All this controversy has Tinsley upset and worried about ratings. But, Tinsley, you have nothing to worry about controversy actually helps. The show’s two airings premiered to 2.5 million viewers, which is as good as if not better than the Gossip Girls, Melrose Place or 90210.
