The Weinstein brand is now toxic. Plus, where hadn’t Oprah been since 1988? These Hollywood stories and more!
Back in 2004, a New York Times reporter was working on a piece on Harvey Weinstein’s behavior with women and it got squashed because Matt Damon and Russell Crowe threw their support behind him. The story was printed, but with all the scintillating stuff and accusations removed. Yesterday women were coming forward with graphic descriptions of his behavior. Even George Clooney broke his silence and called it disgusting. But fashion designer Donna Karan–a longtime friend of Weinsteins–blamed women for how they dress said they’re asking for it?!?!!?!?
The Weinstein name is toxic right now and the company hired an ad agency to come up with a new name. They’re removing Harvey’s name from any credits going forward. For now, his wife fashion designer, Georgina Chapman Marchesa, is standing by him, but people are saying they’re gonna split.
