On Tuesday, September 12, 2023, the company’s owner, Dave Portnoy, discussed the incident in further detail during a Barstool Radio interview.

A video from the program in which Barstool Sports anchor Kevin Clancy alleged that Bennett and Woodruff “ghosted” him when he requested them to serve as judges at the organization’s OnlyFans contest was also published by the @VivaLaStool X account.

Portnoy responded: “Yeah, so I talked to Alex today about that because I caught wind of it, because I asked if they were in the office, she said she was sick, not really an excuse to not get back to you, so they’re done.”

When Clancy asked if the hosts were fired, Portney said: “No, no. Her contract was up, so it was in the midst of whether we were gonna renew it.

“I was not happy in light of everything going on around here with layoffs and the speeches I’ve given, I heard that story, it wasn’t exactly what I wanted to hear.”

The Apple Podcasts description of the program states: “‘Best friends in your ear.’

“Worlds collide on this podcast when married, Alex Bennett and single, Jordyn Woodruff come together for honest conversations about sex, friendship, struggles, moving to a new city, and growing up.

“What can you expect as a listener? To laugh, relate, and feel like you’re catching up with your best friends.”

What did Dave Portnoy say about Alex Bennett?

While on the September 12 Barstool Radio segment, Portnoy expressed his admiration for Bennett.

Referring to the “ghosting” situation, he said: “When I heard that story, it was not what I wanted to hear.

“I do like Alex a lot. I don’t know Jordyn nearly as well as I do Alex.”

He then reiterated that Bennett’s contract was up and that Woodruff’s was “coming up” in about two weeks.

He continued: “So it was like, are we renewing or not? And to be honest, they — I — based on some of the decisions, maybe they weren’t planning on staying anyways.

“And now it’s like, am I gonna give them the IP, which I’m inclined to do, I don’t really have a grudge.

“If they can go do something with it on their own, probably more power to them.”
