What 'Desperate Housewives' Taught Eva Longoria About Negotiating Her Salary

The Huffington Post | Rahel Gebreyes | February 22, 2016 | HuffPost Live 321
ABC's hit show "Desperate Housewives" didn't just kick Eva Longoria's career into high gear -- it taught her invaluable lessons about negotiating a salary, she told HuffPost Live. The actress sat down with host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani last week and discussed finalizing her contract for the popular show. Longoria said she leaned on her female co-stars, who were much more experienced with the business side of the industry at the time. "The first real negotiation I had to do was [for] 'Housewives,' and I was lucky to be surrounded by a Felicity Huffman and a Marcia Cross and women who … all had hit shows," she said. "Teri [Hatcher] had a hit show. Marcia had a hit show. I was just under their wings [and] learning from them and they were business savvy." By the end of the series' eight-season run, the stars of the show were reportedly raking in roughly $325,000 per episode, but Longoria was quick to note that securing such a massive salary isn't so easy: We negotiated together whenever we had to go [figure out our contracts], but you know, you can only negotiate from a place of power. That's probably the misconception about a lot of TV stars today, it's like, "Oh, renegotiate!" Well, only if [you have] like a super, mega hit show can you do that. And we were back then, and it was nice to have that leverage and power. And nowadays it's even tougher, the "Telenovela" star added. The changing television landscape, propelled by the widespread use of online platforms, has made it difficult to rank a show's popularity and therefore leverage that success in negotiations. "It's very hard to do that now with the ratings going down with different ways to view content," she said. "The way you distribute content, it's hard to track. It's hard to rate. What's the metric system? What's the barometer? What's successful? What is not successful? It's all kind of gray now, so it's hard to know where your leverage is today." Want more HuffPost Live?

Former Senator George Mitchell Reflects On Refusing SCOTUS Nomination

The Huffington Post | Kira Brekke | February 18, 2016 | HuffPost Live 321
Amid the debate over nominating a replacement for the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, former Sen. George Mitchell (D-Maine) spoke with HuffPost Live on Wednesday about why he declined a chance to be appointed to the Supreme Court in 1994. Mitchell, who also served as the Senate majority leader from 1989 to 1995, told host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani he ultimately turned down President Bill Clinton's offer to nominate him to the court because he and Sen. John Chafee (R-R.I.) were working to pass health care legislation in the Senate. "When the opening of the Supreme Court occurred, the president asked me if he could appoint me to the Supreme Court. I said, 'Look, there are plenty of good lawyers, probably much better than me, who could serve on the court. But I think we got a shot at this health care thing,'" Mitchell said. He advised the president to find someone else.   "Of course, I was wrong," Mitchell said. "We couldn't agree and the bill went down, but I made the best decision I could under the circumstances." The senator added that there were two times he regretted his choice: when he read the Supreme Court opinion in the 2000 Bush v. Gore decision, and later, in the 2010 Citizens United v. FEC decision.  "I think about that one," Mitchell said of Bush v. Gore, which ended a manual recount of votes in Florida after the 2000 elections, clearing the way for George W. Bush to become president. "When someone begins an opinion by saying, 'This is not to be used as precedent by anybody else,' you gotta be suspicious of what's in it. I thought that was a terrible opinion." Ultimately, though, Mitchell doesn't regret his decision. "You make the best choice you can, based on the facts and the circumstances which exist at the time, and don't spend your life agonizing about it," he said.

Metta World Peace Thinks That Matt Barnes Fight Factored Into Derek Fisher's Firing

The Huffington Post | Rahel Gebreyes | February 17, 2016 | HuffPost Live 321
Metta World Peace doesn't believe Derek Fisher's string of losses is the only reason the former New York Knicks coach was fired earlier this month. The NBA player, who rejoined the Lakers roster last year, suggested that Fisher's high-profile altercation with Memphis Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes likely factored into the decision to let Fisher go. According to The New York Post, a "brawl" broke out between the former Lakers teammates after Barnes found out his estranged wife had started dating Fisher. Barnes received a two-game suspension for his involvement.  "I think that [confrontation with Barnes] had something to do with it because they were losing, and then the focus continued to be on Matt and Derek and his ex-wife," World Peace said. "So I think that had something to do with it, and then I think maybe the players felt a little bit uncomfortable with the situation." Shortly after news of the firing broke, Knicks president Phil Jackson, on the other hand, said the organization wasn't happy about the "embarrassing" incident with Barnes, but didn't choose to fire him because of it. World Peace told HuffPost Live's Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani that he hopes both Fisher and Barnes will rise above the fight. "I don't know what happened in the house," he said. "I've heard rumors, but I hope those guys are able to talk about it and just move on because it wasn't a horrible situation. It was a little touchy situation."
