Billy Bush has come under fire and been suspended from his job at the Today show for a leaked 2005 conversation with Donald Trump in which sexual comments were made about Nancy O’Dell and Arianne Zucker, but amid the backlash, the NBC co-host has received some big-name support.

In the days after Bush apologized for his comments made in the 11-year-old video, Jamie Lee Curtis and Piers Morgan were among the members of Hollywood who defended the 44-year-old host.

Kate Walsh appeared on Good Day D.C. Monday during which she said, “I think that Billy has a great opportunity to correct this. I think it’s very odd that we have someone who’s said what Donald Trump has said and is still able to run for president, and that NBC has taken the action to suspend Billy Bush. I know Billy and I know that he is accountable and that he is an amazing father and husband and friend and he will step forward and discuss this.”

Bush’s former Access Hollywood co-host Kit Hoover got emotional during Monday’s episode while defending her friend: “Those tapes were a decade ago and it was seven minutes of someone’s life, and all I can tell you is what I know and the person that I sat next to for the last six years, and that person for me is a totally different person,” she said, adding, “The Billy that I know and a lot of people would say has the biggest heart of anybody and he is a good person.”

Shortly after The Washington Post published the video on Friday, Bush issued an apology that was obtained by PEOPLE: “Obviously I’m embarrassed and ashamed. It’s no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago – I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I’m very sorry.”
