Dorothy Lucey moves on with blog about Fox 11 boss who fired her

dorothy-lucey-board.jpgIt has been about four months since Dorothy Lucey was abruptly dropped from the hosting trio on Fox 11's "Good Day LA." For the first time in 17 years she gets to stay home in the mornings, which apparently means a lot of time in the water off Malibu. She has also started a blog and has an interesting new post up about how she was fired by a new management team at Channel 11. If accurate that's a pretty insulting boss.

This morning I promised to take a walk. Have sex with my husband, and work on my blog. Well I’ve done one.

Hello Blog.

I get to be home in the morning now. Get to burn the bagels, wake up the kid & kick the snoring, farting dog off the bed. It’s such a gift to ease into the day. I just didn’t initally see it that way.

I did sulk for a week (or 3) after losing my job. So many of you have asked what happened. Well it did involve blood. After 17 blissful (well mostly blissful…but that’s another blog) years at Good Day LA I got a new boss. He said I made his eyes bleed. Not the crusty yucky pink eye. New guy was saying when I spoke it made his eyes bleed. I have read that can happen after you vomit. Now I could almost see my husband saying something like that to me…after all we are married. But from a new boss…

Her about me page says: "Dorothy is a (somewhat) reformed gossip reporter. A good mother. A so-so wife. She spends most of her time wishing she could paddle board and work with her two charities–Mending Kids International and The Good News Foundation.
Dorothy believes in funlanthropy. That’s the concept of saving the world one glass of wine at a time. After 17 years on Good Day LA (hence the attempt to reform), these days she’s searching for more God and less Gossip."
