It’s time for a break from all the Wall Street volatility.
Earlier this year, Lynn Tilton, head of Patriarch Partners, was slated to star in her own reality show, “The Diva of Distressed,” on the Sundance Channel. The show got nixed in May. The cancellation occurred after Forbes magazine did a very thorough, and devastating, profile of Tilton. The Patriarch CEO allegedly propositioned male employees, screamed, spit and raged on desktops, according to the Forbes‘ stories.
Tilton isn’t the only outlandish/interesting personality in the PE and VC worlds. There’s Stephen Schwarzman, chairman and CEO of the Blackstone Group, who really likes expensive parties, and Marc Leder, Sun Capital’s co-CEO, who recently hosted a party “where guests cavorted nude in the pool,” according to the New York Post.
On the VC side, we have John Doerr, a partner Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, who’s taken to dressing like Mark Zuckerberg in sneakers, jeans and a hoodie. Then there’s Simon Cook from DFJ Esprit, who dressed up as Captain America for his firm’s recent anniversary celebration.
So stop watching whatever the Dow is doing and tell us who you think should get his or her own reality show.
