Kathleen Parker Threatens to Leave CNN Show

Eliot Spitzer’s CNN co-host Kathleen Parker is so furious about Spitzer’s on-air domination that she is threatening to leave their nightly show.

Parker went so far as to storm off the set of the “Parker Spitzer” show Eliot, Spitzer, CNN, Kathleen, Parkerduring a recent pre-taping, according to the New York Post. She did return to finish the segment, however.

“But she’s angry that the show’s producers are allegedly doing nothing to play up her strengths on the badly ailing show,” the Post’s Tara Palmeri reported.

Spitzer, who resigned as New York governor in 2008 following disclosures that he was patronizing prostitutes, took control of the show right from the start, overshadowing Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post columnist Parker, staffers told the Post.

Parker is reportedly complaining that executive producer Liza McGuirk is not working to boost Parker’s image.

But CNN spokeswoman Barbara Levin told The Post: “Liza’s a terrific producer, and any suggestion that she’s on her way out is patently false.”

Levin added: “We love Kathleen.”
