When Julie Snyder announced Wednesday evening that she would receive Jacynthe René, after the advertising break, I first thought it was a slip of the tongue, a mistake, that it would rather be the singer Jacynthe – Give It Up! – who would tread the conveyor belt.
Because, quite frankly, what would Jacynthe René do to The week of 4 Julie when she has just emerged from the highly publicized trial of her company, Maison Jacynthe, for illegal practice of medicine?
It was obvious that this contentious – and topical – subject would rebound on the talk show, let’s see. Imagine if Julie Snyder had only mentioned birch bark herbal tea or detox juice, it would have been embarrassing and unprofessional.
Relaxed and super glamorous, Jacynthe René stepped up her nose, and the 10 minute interview that followed was intense, resulting in a great time on TV. Long live the live, no one could tear off their microphone and flee the studio.
Julie Snyder, who knew her case in fine detail, chained specific questions to controversial health tips that were distilled on the Maison Jacynthe Facebook page. The actress and entrepreneur defended herself rather well, but the more the interview progressed, the more her discomfort manifested itself.
Jacynthe René’s tensions did not prevent Julie Snyder from scratching the bobo without anesthesia, always in a cheerful tone, devoid of aggression. The segment concluded with an excerpt from the daily series Clash, from Vrak, where Jacynthe René’s game was praised by the demoness.
It was good to see Julie Snyder combative and drooling. Too often, showbiz artists get privileges when they deserve to be shaken up. Julie Snyder confronted her guest with firmness and rigor. Nothing to reproach him on that.
Thursday morning, Jacynthe René fulminated on her social networks, saying she was “stunned, betrayed and humiliated” by Julie Snyder, who would have trapped, massacred, demolished and even “raped” live on the airwaves of Noovo. Words heavy with meaning, all the same.
Completely false, replies Julie Snyder, attached Thursday afternoon. “Jacynthe knew the interview was going to be about the prosecution. If she had asked that we not talk about her trial, we would not have received her. It was part of his news ”, explains Julie Snyder.
Before going on the air, the host visited Jacynthe René in her dressing room. “I warned her that the interview would not be easy. I was professional and all I did was lay facts in front of her. I treated her with respect and respect. I gave him the opportunity to respond several times, ”continues Julie Snyder.
Jacynthe René stayed until the end of the show. The two women did not speak again after the broadcast ended. Julie Snyder and Jacynthe René are not friends in real life. And there was no old conflict brewing between them. “Jacynthe is someone I respect as a businesswoman. I use her makeup products and I have absolutely nothing against her, ”says Julie Snyder.
Jacynthe René sent me a long reply Thursday in the early evening. First, she claims to have lost confidence in the media. “Yes, I suspected that we were obviously going to talk about the trial, but not to receive all kinds of accusations after accusations. I can assure you that the pre-interview could not lead me to believe that I was going to have a moment like this ”, affirms Jacynthe René.
She continues: “I have rarely been in such a state, devastated, betrayed. We agree that I was shot. I had no interest in going to fight. I didn’t expect this and I didn’t need this. ”
I do not have to make amends if I feel that my treatment is unfair. Quite the contrary. Who do they think they are offering me a platform to make amends?
The verdict of his trial will fall on March 23.
Olivier Bernard, alias the Pharmachien, alerted the College of Physicians in 2018 about acts he considered questionable on the part of Maison Jacynthe. Thursday, Olivier Bernard praised the “exceptional work” of Julie Snyder, who “did not leave room for dodging or vague answers” during his interview.
“Usually I don’t notice bad moves anymore. But it is also important to recognize the good ones ”, recalls Olivier Bernard in an interview.
