High Society Star: "Ridiculous" of Co-Star to Blame Show for Offensive Comments

Tinsley Mortimer, the star and executive producer of CW's High Society, says it's "ridiculous" for one of her co-stars to claim she was manipulated into making offensive comments about African-Americans, gays, Jews and overweight people on the show.

"For her to say that it was sort of scripted and that she was fed those lines is absolutely untrue," Mortimer said, referring to castmate Jules Kirby. "On your site... you do show a video where it's clear that she's not being manipulated, that she is actually saying this stuff. And it's shocking to me."

Kirby is quoted on the show saying she uses the N-word and believes it's OK, that she only likes white men, and that her friends tend not to be gay, Jewish, or fat. In the exclusive TVGuide.com video mentioned by Mortimer above, Kirby says fat people are "gross to me" and makes several other remarks that offended many viewers.
