In a recent episode of his podcast “Open Book with Anthony Scaramucci,” former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci conducted an interview with ex-CNN anchor Chris Cuomo. During the conversation, Cuomo made a noteworthy disclosure about his mental state following his termination from the network in late 2021. He expressed feeling so overwhelmed by the situation that he was going to “kill everybody, including himself.”
Following his involvement in advising his brother, then-Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo, during a sexual misconduct scandal, Chris Cuomo was terminated from his position at CNN. He has acknowledged his mistakes and expressed a need for therapy, referring to his dismissal as being “s–t-canned.” After making a return to television with NewsNation, Chris has expressed embarrassment regarding the program’s decreasing viewership.

In February 2022, Chris Cuomo initiated legal proceedings against CNN, seeking $60 million in damages, alleging that his dismissal was unjustified and deprived him of potential earnings for the next 15 to 20 years. He aspires to receive a payout comparable to that of Megyn Kelly and prefers to litigate the case rather than engage in public discussions about it. Regrettably, HarperCollins Publishers cancelled Cuomo’s forthcoming book around the same time.
Despite his termination from CNN and a drop in viewership for his new program, Chris Cuomo’s narrative exemplifies perseverance and resolve. He continues to strive for what he feels is rightfully his, refusing to allow his circumstances to shape his identity and instead using them as a driving force to establish himself. The outcome of Chris’s pursuit for compensation is yet to be determined, and whether he will succeed remains to be seen.
