Kathleen Parker Angry at Eliot Spitzer, Threatening to Leave Show

Kathleen Parker is apparently very angry at CNN co-host Eliot Spitzer and is threatening to leave the show.

According to the New York Post, Parker feels Spitzer is continually upstaging her:

Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker actually stormed off the set of the "Parker Spitzer" show during a pre-taping a few weeks ago -- furious that her co-host is continually allowed to take charge of their nightly CNN chat-fest, the insiders said.

Although still fuming, Parker did return to wrap up the segment, they said.

But she's angry that the show's producers are allegedly doing nothing to play up her strengths on the ailing show, the sources said.

Ailing show is right. As NewsBusters reported moments ago, "P-S" is down 35 percent in viewership compared to this time last year when "Campbell Brown" was still on the air in this time slot.

As the Post noted, "Someone could soon be shown the door over the behind-the-scenes battling -- and over the fact that [sic] show has done so poorly in the all-important Nielsen ratings, the sources said."
