Larry Mendte Fired For Alycia Lane Computer Hacking

by at . Comments

Philadelphia news anchor Larry Mendte was fired by CBS amid an FBI probe into allegations he hacked into the computer of his former co-anchor.

That being The Hollywood Gossip's favorite news mess, Alycia Lane!

According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, Larry Mendte accessed Lane's computer and proceeded to leak embarrassing stories about her to Page Six.

As a result, KYW-TV booted Mendte a few days after Alycia Lane, who was canned earlier this year, filed a lawsuit against the station over his actions.

Alycia Lane keeps popping up in the tabloids ... sometimes she even makes the cover! But this time wasn't really her fault - Larry Mendte was just stalking her.

Lane claimed that keeping Larry Mendte on the payroll at the TV station amounted to discrimination. Mendte's lawyer, Michael Schwartz, said the newsman is cooperating with the FBI and expects to resume his career.

Don't hold your breath, Larry.

Alycia Lane, who was fired after a tirade against a New York City cop, who she called a dyke b!tch, first raised eyebrows when she sent some bikini pics of herself to a "platonic friend" named Rich Eisen (yes, the Rich Eisen of ESPN fame) ... only to have his wife, Suzy Shuster, find them and freak out. Natch.
