TELEVISION – Léa Salamé in turn evokes the real reasons for stoppingWe are live. This Saturday, July 9, the journalist from France 2 was interviewed on the subject by Michel Cymes for the doctor’s digital platform Dr. Good.
“This is the first time that I speak on this subject, she breathes in the interview. Since then, everything has been written. Spoke to him. I don’t speak.” What she says is that “very quickly, after three months” after the show launched, Laurent Ruquier, who was co-hosting the program, came to see her and told her that he thought Stop. “I’m not happy,” he told her.
Léa Salamé continues: “Laurent Ruquier is someone with whom I get along very well since the days ofWe are not in bed. He told me quite clearly: ‘I adored you as a columnist, but, shared as a co-presenter, it frustrates me’. That’s what he told me. Me, it frustrated me less. I could have continued for years with him.”
According to her, Laurent Ruquier “does not want to be pissed off”. “He has proven enough, she believes. He wants to have a program in his hand, which looks like him. Not necessarily to share, to wait for Léa to do her interview with Michel Cymes and then send the interview with Gad Elmaleh.
By announcing the end of the show, at the beginning of June, Laurent Ruquier had mentioned this point without going into details. “I tried, but despite my natural understanding with Léa Salamé, I consider the exercise too frustrating”, he wrote, adding “not being comfortable co-hosting for a talk show”.
After seventeen years of providing service in the second part of the evening on the second channel, the star host confirmed, last May, that he was leaving this box. It is Léa Salamé, who will succeed him with a new program called We can’t say anything anymore.
