    The scourned husband of former CNN anchor Paula Zahn says there's no way he could have mismanaged her millions because she was spending the money as fast as she made it. Less than two weeks after being sued by Zahn for making "dubious investments" with more than $25 million, her jilted hubby, Richard Cohen, fired back by branding his estranged wife a wastrel who wants to air their dirty laundry in public. "The $20 million cost of her Connecticut mansion alone (without even including the extravagant nature of Ms. Zahn's annual expenditures) consumed more than her entire income over their...

    August 28, 2007 -- Paula Zahn's teed-off hubby didn't know that steamy sex trysts between his wife and an old pal were par for the course for years. Maybe he should have. [snip] "Richard feels betrayed," one pal said - and he only found out the truth from a tell-all manuscript Zahn wrote that documents her relationship with ContiGroup CEO Fribourg.

[snip]...."Despite Ms. Zahn's repeated requests for full financial disclosure, Ms. Zahn simply does not and, as yet, cannot know the basic contours of her overall financial condition," her lawyer Stanley Arkin wrote in court papers.

By the time they married in 1987, Zahn had put Cohen in charge of every cent she ever saved or earned, according to the lawsuit. The arrangement was...

    NEW YORK (AP) - Paula Zahn is leaving CNN, turning her prime-time slot over to Campbell Brown. Zahn's final program will be Aug. 2. Others will fill in until November, when Brown - newly hired from NBC News- will start, CNN said Tuesday. Zahn has been at the network for nearly six years since jumping from Fox News Channel - her first day on the job Sept. 11, 2001. She said she expects to stay in television after taking some time off. "For the first time in 30 years, I'm going to take a break here," said Zahn, 51. Although...

    Paula Zahn has resigned from CNN. Zahn hosted CNN's 8pm ET program, Paula Zahn Now. The departure comes just one day after Campbell Brown signed on with CNN. TVNewser joined a conference call around this time yesterday, in which CNN/U.S. president Jon Klein introduced Brown as his network's newest on-air hire. Klein promised an announcement about Brown's primetime program would be made "over the next several days." Zahn joined CNN in 2001. Her first day on the air was September 11, co-anchoring coverage of the 9/11 attacks with another new hire at the time, Aaron Brown. Later that fall, Zahn...

    The search for missing pregnant Ohio woman Jessie Davis and the ongoing investigation into her murder has been all the rage recently on the twenty-four hour news networks, only surpassed by a few "choice" stories such as the coverage of the imprisonment of Paris Hilton. Not surprisingly, one network, CNN, used the murder of this young woman to forward a left-wing agenda. Two guests on Monday's "Paula Zahn Now" program warned that a "big risk factor" or a "big red flag" in cases of domestic violence and/or homicide against pregnant woman are "men who are gun owners."Host Paula Zahn had...

    Paula Zahn's 8:00 p.m. show on CNN is being canceled. Its ratings had been falling precipitously for months. According to several reports, CNN plans to replace Zahn with NBC's Campbell Brown, whose contract with the network expires next month. But Daily Variety quoted one insider as noting that Brown resembles Zahn in that they are "network-style anchors" who will be up against tough competition from "brash, opinionated hosts" on rival cable news networks. "Why replace Paula with another Paula?" the Variety source asked.

    In going on Paula Zahn's CNN show this evening, was Al Sharpton's goal to quell the controversy surrounding his comments about Mormonism, or to inflame it? If the former, he failed miserably. If the latter, he succeeded admirably.Let's recall Sharpton's original statement, that in going on the Zahn show he presumably was seeking to explicate. Debating Christopher Hitchens recently, Sharpton said: "And as for the one Mormon running for office, those that really believe in God will defeat him anyway. So don't worry about that. That's a temporary, that's a temporary situation." Discussing those comments on "Paula Zahn Now" this...

    Five months after CNN canceled Connie Chung's 8 p.m. show, the network still is fiddling with the replacement -- and losing viewership. Chung's show often was criticized for its tabloid feel, and last winter newly named CNN President Jim Walton shelved it in favor of a hard-news show featuring one of the network's best-known anchors, Paula Zahn. Zahn has anchored the 8 p.m. hour most of the time since, although CNN officially will launch and rebadge the program Sept. 8, spokeswoman Christa Robinson said. Initial ratings suggest more than a catchy name may be needed. Viewers seem to have preferred...

A publicist for Fox News Channel was calling. For anyone writing about Zahn's show, she wanted to point out how much better Fox's morning show, "Fox & Friends," was doing in the ratings.

    Filed at 1:56 p.m. ET GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) -- Paula Zahn's lawyer is arguing that the CNN anchor shouldn't have to give a deposition in a lawsuit filed by her landscaper, partly because she's a celebrity.

"I'll kill you, Paula! I'll kill you, Paula!" Muller shouted while hitting his cohort. A CNN spokeswoman, who brought the incident to the attention of The News, said it "clearly crosses the line of what's appropriate." No viewers called Fox about the bit, which was part...
