"GCB" star Annie Potts is firing back at Newt Gingrich after the Republican presidential candidate criticized her new Texas dramedy "GCB" for exemplifying what he described as "anti-Christian bigotry ... in the entertainment industry."
In an interview on "The View" (weekdays on ABC) Potts defended the show from Gingrich's jabs. "I don't know what all the fuss is about," she began. When Joy Behar brought up Gingrich's criticisms of the show -- "the good Christian husband that he is" -- Potts had a few barbs of her own for the thrice-married former Speaker of the House.
"I did feel that it was especially rich coming from him, that he called our little TV show un-Christian when he was carrying on an affair while he was impeaching the president for doing the same. It's like, you know, look in the mirror honey, I think our show may be for you."
