During her Golden Globes interview, Messing also brought up E! News’ alleged gender pay gap, saying: “

Time is up and we want diversity and we want intersectional gender parity. We want equal pay, and I was so shocked to hear that E! doesn’t believe in paying their female co-hosts the same as male co-hosts.”
