Shameless' Emmy Rossum Settles Salary Dispute, Clearing the Way for Season 8

Calvin SaundersDec 16, 2016

The dispute is said to be holding up a potential eighth season of the popular Showtime programme.

'Playing Fiona Gallagher has been one of the great privileges of my life, ' she tweeted.

In the hit US version of the British comedy drama, William H. Macy and Rossum play father and daughter, and the Oscar-nominated star, 66, recently renegotiated his pay deal with production bosses at Warner Bros., increasing his salary, which was already more than the rest of the cast.

Upon retirement, a glance at Rosberg's life in F1
However, just five days after winning the 2016 title, Rosberg stunned motorsport by announcing his immediate retirement. Rosberg won 23 races (tied for 12th all time) and 30 pole positions (eighth) from 206 races since his debut in 2006.

Terms of Rossum's new deal were not disclosed.

After an intense week of negotiations, Shameless star Emmy Rossum's fight for equal pay has come to a happy end. Despite that, the Wild Hogs star was already being paid far more than the rest of the cast.

Shameless, along with Homeland, ranks as Showtime's longest-running scripted original series and most watched.

Browns fall to 0-13, lose 23-10 to Bengals
RG3 did score on a 1-yard sneak in the third quarter, but the Browns lost their 16th straight dating to December 13 last season. The switch to Griffin helped the read-option run game, but it didn't do much for the passing game or the offense as a whole.

Macy concluded that the only place that he and Rossum weren't equals was in the looks department. So, if Showtime want to continue with Season 8 of the highly-acclaimed dramedy, they better respect her totally justified wishes or cancel Shameless altogether, which - considering her weighty role as Fiona Gallagher in the show - quite frankly, is unlikely to happen.

"It's about f*cking time, don't you think?" Rossum's camp reportedly argued that the actress should be paid more than Macy to make up for the seven seasons in which she earned considerably less than the veteran actor.

As it stands, it appears that Rossum isn't preparing to back out anytime soon. Rossum's victory brings women one step closer to closing the gap by finding the confidence to negotiate for the salary they deserve.

As for that one unsafe throw, Bowles said, "That play can go either way, but Robby made a great play and made it look good. On Jan. 1, the San Francisco 49ers fired then-head coach Jim Tomsula after one season and a 5-11 record.

Macy is adamant Emmy Rossum deserves everything she's asking fact, he says it's about f****** time.
