Ted Casablanca: E!xit Stage Left, E!ven?

Where’s Ted Casablanca? The venerable E! News gossip disappeared without explanation last month from the cable airwaves. He still operates a online column-cum-blog, The Awful Truth, where on August 1 he told fans who noticed his absence, “I’m starting to know how Star Jones Reynolds felt.” Hmm?

NYTV asked; Mr. Casablanca answered.

“All I can say, at this point, is my column will appear (amped) someplace else as of next June,” he wrote in an e-mail.

Where will he go? What will he do? Is E! letting such divine talent slip away?

A network representative had the following response tonight. “Ted is still very much with eonline. He’s a very valuable member of their staff.”

She added: “I can’t speak to his contract, but everybody here’s like, ‘What?'”
