Scaramucci and Avenatti to appear on ‘Late Show’ together

First there was talk of a potential TV show, and now, Anthony Scaramucci and Michael Avenatti are poised to appear as guests together on “The Late Show.”

Scaramucci, who famously served less than two weeks last year as the White House communications director, and Avenatti, Stormy Daniels’s attorney in her lawsuits against President Trump and Michael Cohen, will sit down for a joint interview with CBS late-night host Stephen Colbert on Wednesday, the network announced Friday.

{mosads}The New York Times reported last month that a show starring the political foes was being pitched to cable news networks.

While both appeared to deny any potential TV collaboration at the time, Scaramucci recently said he would be “open” to the idea.

“If it were to come to pass, if somebody actually laid out a proposal and I could see what the guidelines were, I’m open to a lot of different things,” Scaramucci told C-SPAN’s Steve Scully earlier this week.

Scaramucci denied any TV project was in the works but praised Avenatti, whose client, adult-film star Daniels, is suing Trump for defamation and Cohen, one of Trump’s attorneys, to void a nondisclosure agreement signed weeks before the 2016 presidential election.

“I don’t know Michael well. I do think Michael’s a formidable competitor,” Scaramucci said.

“He would be the type of guy that I would want on my team, frankly,” Scaramucci added of Avenatti, who’s become a frequent face on cable news criticizing the administration

After getting ousted from his White House job, Scaramucci launched a media company called The Scaramucci Post. A cable TV regular, the former hedge fund financier is also reportedly poised to release a book about Trump’s management style in the fall.
