It would change the dynamic of the show to sit with just guests and discuss the episode without an audience. TWD takes spoilers pretty seriously.

I've been to a number of the Talking Dead tapings. I had already planned on attending the final Rick and Maggie tapings, but we'll see how and if they continue the show.

Then you change the show. It's been done before.

I can look spoilers up on the internet regardless of the show.

Does this surprise anyone? Singled Out was such a rapey show. Actually all of those dating shows are fucked up in the #metoo era.

I only know of Chloe Dykstra from that cosplay series from a few years ago and she seemed like a sweetheart.

One thing we've learned (or at least had reinforced) from these kinds of stories is that you don't really know someone's personal character from just watching them on television. Even when they are being 'themselves' on talk shows and such, it's all a carefully crafted image being put forth.
I agree. It's sad. Chris Hardwick and John Lassetter seemed like really nice guys that I'd want to hang out with. Why can't people just not be dicks? I fell for it. Chris seemed pretty genuinely kind but I guess it was all just an act? A character of sorts? Can't believe anything anymore.

Spare us. There were witnesses. You can tell how much truth there was to the story by how fast all his employers moved to can him.

What I said is not what you think I said.

Robert Kazinsky, who was on that FOX show a few years ago Second Chance, is Dykstra's current boyfriend and he tweeted out the following:

I was never a huge fan but he seemed like a decent enough guy and I watch @Midnight now and again and also watched Talking Bad when it was on. It’s really disappointing to learn how many of these guys are assholes.

Chris Hardwick seems like a control freak but Chloe Dykstra seems like she has extremely low self-esteem & low self-confidence - a combination that results in a type of relationship that usually is doomed to go bad.

A control freak like this really needs someone to pushback, and if that pushback doesn’t ever happen, which is clearly the case here based just on her own article, the control will grow and grow until the relationship gets into an almost sadomasochistic realm. Even though the majority of the blame goes to the control freak, it's not entirely the control freak's fault if someone just lets him walk all over her like a doormat. Have some fucking self-confidence and stand up for yourself!

And Lydia Hearst apparently has an actual backbone and that's why her marriage to Chris Hardwick seems to be going well.

Why? If she's not experiencing that behavior from him, why would that lead to divorce?

I hope he has a good financial adviser as it sounds like he is going to be unemployed for a long time. Sounds like women in the entertainment industry have all the power now.

Curious as to who the hell these people are, I looked up Chloe Dykstra on IMDB and found out she's the daughter of special effects wizard John Dykstra (the original STAR WARS).

Lydia Hearst is the great-granddaughter of publishing scion William Randolph Hearst, one of the models for CITIZEN KANE.

Chris Hardwick is the son of a Hall of Fame bowler. (Who the hell knew bowling had a Hall of Fame?)

Those are the only interesting tidbits I found.

You did some googling and all you could find about Hardwick is that he's the son of a bowler? Did they scrub him from the internet or are you're google-fu skills just behind?

The guy seemed all about being buddy buddy with the entertainment industry, though, even if he's set for life this has got to be killing him.

Maybe he takes up bowling.

I want to know what the evidence is for this?
AFAIK, it's just a he-said-she-said situation at the moment.

So you’ve never watched AMC or heard of The Walking Dead? Hardwick is probably best known as the host of the After Show “Talking Dead”

Well, of course you haven’t, if it doesn’t involve Japanese or Asian pop culture, you don’t care

He-said-she-said where "she" didn't even give a name.

She said something along the lines of, if he wants to sue her for defamation, she has evidence that she can bring out. So if he sues her (and if he's innocent he should, considering what's happened to his career in the last few days) we'll see the evidence, I guess?
