Perrault's Rant On Ex-Girlfriend Makes News In Philly

Big Sports 590 afternoon sports talk show host Matt Perrault's rant about his ex-girlfriend, which occurred on sister station Z-92 during the "Todd & Tyler" show, made headlines in the Philadelphia Daily News.

Columnist Dan Gross shares with readers how Perrault dissed WCAU sports reporter Jade McCarthy while filling in for Travis Justice on TNT's show.

Though he never mentioned her by name, Perrault has made occasional references to her on his show, particularly during his annual "Hottest Local TV News Chick" contest.

Writes Gross:

"She got her job because guys want to have sex with her," Perrault said, echoing the unfortunate sexism that has long plagued women in sports broadcasting.

"She got her job because she's a hot blonde," Perrault continued. (Watch video of her here.)

He said McCarthy resented him for knowing more about sports than she did and she felt he was "an unsupportive jerk."

McCarthy told Gross that she thinks Perrault is just jealous.

"It's ridiculous, it's insulting and it's disappointing what you learn about people after the fact," she said. "I work really hard, and by no means do I think I have my job because of the way I look."

Gross writes that the pair broke up four months ago after dating several years.

Meanwhile, Perrault blogs about a leggy blonde who was wearing a "pink teddie"
at the first Nebraska football press conference earlier this week.

Matt is a jerk? C'mon...that can't be can it?

I do want to know who the girl in the pink teddie was. Okay, I really want pictures. I heard she was wearing practically nothing under the skirt. Again, that was according to Matt.

I've heard of Jade McCarthy but who's Matt Perrault?

That's pretty sad that Perrault brought that stuff on-air. Whether it's true or not, it's lacking class, but then again, it's nothing new with him.

That can't be the right pic for a former girlfriend of his. Unless it was an online dating thing and he sent her a pic of someone good looking instead of one of himself.

:-p

Sheesh Matt --- Get yourself another girlfriend instead of drooling over student reporters. What's your demographic ---junior high losers?

Sorry Matt about the previous post. I just ready your blog about the reporter on media day and I agree she was dressed inappropiately.

I love how Perrault can rip into people, but when he does something stupid, he refuses to talk about it on the radio any further and, get this, he is going sites like Huskers Illustrated and begging people to drop it. He erased entries in his blog in a Watergate cover up.

Sorry Matthew. You call people out all the time. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

Why don't you man up and take it. You were dumb but don't compound it by going and begging people not to talk about it...unless that is what you really want to gain yet more self absorbed attention.

While we're on the "hot blondes" topic, did anyone else watch the KETV morning news Thursday? It was just Brandi Peterson and Andrea Bredow. The two of them sitting at the news desk, all the blonde hair, all the smiles, the dressy outfits... did I mention all that blonde hair? Man, I couldn't help thinking "Barbie & Skipper"... an enjoyable newscast, if I do say so myself. Doll references aside, the two of them put on a great newscast... not too much cheesey banter, no major goofs that I caught (I was half asleep). Maybe we'll see this pairing more often?

Amazingly, Matthew went on the Bluejay Cafe website and, because somebody had an avatar of his ex, threw a temper tantrum and threatened to never ever come back to the cafe. Well, the dude did change is his avatar...to Bill Buckner missing the ground ball.

Matt is right on with his comments. The words "white trash" come to mind when thinking about these female "reporters."

For all that is holy in the radio blog world, now Perrault is on his blog admitting that he edited his previous posts, erased comments to the story about his ex, in order to, get this, end the discussion. Let me get this straight, you put up yet another blog entry, about a previous blog, about what you said on a radio show that got picked up in Philly, to end the discussion? Huh?

C'mon, let's be real here Matthew. You cannot sit there and whine about what people are saying about what you said and wrote and then bring it up again in order to "end the discussion." Please.

This is really starting to make me wonder if this is a publicity stunt of some sort because, if not, well, wow.

It's always a stunt when he does something like this. When he went after Brandi Petersen a while back for not taking his sexist award he made a big stink about that. When your at the bottom you have to do what you can to come up for a taste of oxygen every once in a while.

Plus, Matt will never get a hottie like Jade ever again. Bitter?
