Dr. Mehmet Oz, a cardiothoracic surgeon, former television host and Senate candidate in Pennsylvania, and his wife ranted about a “girl reporter” in a profanity-laced conversation overheard by Olivia Nuzzi, the “girl reporter” about whom they were complaining.
Nuzzi called Oz’s wife Lisa Oz, who is also a television personality, while working on a profile of Oz for New York Magazine. Oz’s wife answered the phone and had a short conversation with Nuzzi before trying — and failing — to hang up. Nuzzi listened as the couple called her a “liar” and a “fucking girl reporter,” and scrutinized a conversation between Nuzzi and Michelle Bouchard, a friend of the couple’s.
When reached for comment about Oz’s remarks, Nuzzi told HuffPost she would let her story “speak for itself for now.”
He’s running for a seat in Pennsylvania, despite maintaining a longtime residence in New Jersey. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported in November that an Oz campaign aide said the television personality is living in Montgomery County and renting his in-laws’ home.
Earlier this month, Sony Pictures announced Oz’s show will end Jan. 14 after 14 years. A show hosted by his daughter will take its place.
