On Saturday, according to a firsthand witness who spoke to The Daily Beast, Friel was interrupted by a paparazzo while shopping for groceries at a West Hollywood Whole Foods. The photographer asked her: “Why are you not on the news right now?”

She responded: “That’s a good question. I’m the weekend anchor, ask them.”

“Do you think you’re going to be fired?” he asked Friel.

“I hope not. I love my job,” she told him, before he snapped some pictures.
