Nancy O'Dell slammed longtime friend, Billy Bush, on-air Monday when she said on Entertainment Tonight, "There is no room for objectification of women, or anyone for that matter — not even in the locker room!" But insiders told RadarOnline.com she's been saying a lot worse behind the scenes! Less than one week after an audio tape leaked of Bush, 44, and presidential candidate Donald Trump making vulgar comments about O'Dell, an insider claims that Bush STILL has not made a personal apology to O'Dell. Click through 7 shocking photos to find out why.
As Radar reported, Bush publicly apologized to his fans and co-workers on Sunday when the disgraced TV host issued a statement that read, "Obviously I'm embarrassed and ashamed. It's no excuse, but this happened 11 years ago — I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I'm very sorry."
However, an insider said that the one person Bush forgot to apologize to was the person that was hurt the most by the scandal — Bush's longtime former friend and co-worker, O'Dell!
"While Billy did apologize to the world, he did not apologize privately to Nancy and that really, really upset her," a source close to O'Dell told Radar.
As Radar reported, Bush will likely be terminated from the TODAY show following the backlash over the recording. However, according to the source, "Bush was going to apologize to Nancy on-air on the TODAY show Monday but since he was suspended, he did not get to do it!"
"Everyone close to Nancy was at least hoping that Billy would apologize to her in private," the source told Radar. "But so far, that has not even happened."
"Nancy and Billy were tight at one time," the insider added. "What hurt the most for her is that when he made the comments back in 2005 they were really close friends."
