Confidential personnel issues are not for any of us to discuss publicly. As an HR person, I will say it is best that rumors and speculation not be discussed. Those who do know something factual should keep it to themselves.

I agree Jeff. I remember this Diva they used to have working in the office. I thought she was awesome for the KCBS and us cooks. Others didn't. Who was right? Who cares.... I don't have a say.

As it is... Funny how it all works out in the end!!!

Pretty good advice from Jeff and Scottie.

To the best of my knowledge, only one person directly involved should be able to speak about this with any authority. If she chooses to speak about it, that is up to her.
