Multiple sources, including George Thompson, a spokesman for Puzder and Fierstein, confirmed the appearance. … In a brief interview with Politico this week, Fierstein called her ex-husband “a terrific guy with a wonderful character.” Court documents show that both agreed to drop abuse charges as part of a 1990 child-custody agreement.
