CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler has outlasted NBC's Ben Silverman at the top of a network — and she isn't above a little gloating.

Silverman, the departing co-chairman of NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios, once said that other network executives were "basically D-girls" — industry slang for young, attractive female development executives with little pull.

Tassler was asked during a panel at the Television Critics Association's fall press tour Monday what she thought about Silverman's departure, and quipped, "I'm really just a D-girl, so I wouldn't comment."Silverman announced last week that he would leave his struggling network. Ironically, Tassler was the only Big 4 network executive Silverman didn't specifically call out as a "D-girl" in the Esquire interview

in which he made the remarks.The "D-girl" insult got perhaps its best exposure in a 2000 Sopranos episode. In the episode, Christopher uses the phrase to attack a film executive played by Alicia Witt.
