Jamie Lee Curtis SLAMS Donna Karan & "Brutish Thug" Harvey Weinstein While Talking About Being Sexually Harassed At Work

Hollywood is speaking up amid Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment and assault scandal! With more and more celebs sharing their own horrifying experiences with the controversial producer, it's opening up a very overdue discussion in the industry.

With more and more celebs sharing their own horrifying experiences with the controversial producer, it's opening up a very overdue discussion in the industry. And Jamie Lee Curtis is doing so by slamming the argument that women are "asking for it," one Donna Karan recently given voice once again in defense of the movie mogul. Related: Kate Beckinsale Accuses Harvey Of Hitting On Her When She Was 17 The designer has since apologized, but the actress isn't here for it! In an op-ed piece published on Huffington Post, the star explained her disappointment with Donna -- all without naming her name: "I awoke to a statement, from an unlikely voice, that the women in question were perhaps 'asking for it.' Really? Is this how we have evolved? Is this what the women's movement, feminism and, more recently, the women's march has yielded? A fellow woman, one who makes her living dressing famous women in tight, sexy dresses and one who built her empire to do her good works all over the world, would throw these brave women under the bus in a weird, mean girl version of slut shaming?" Jamie continued, revealing she has been victim to sexual harassment at work: "I, too, have been subjected to my own private, personal versions of sexual harassment on the job. Did I ask for it? No. What I simply asked for was a job, and what came with it was sexual harassment." Furthering her point, she added: "What I believe we are all asking for in these instances, is a chance to show our talent, our humanity, a chance to express ourselves and our art and perhaps, be a part of a film that can truly create change." Using Prince's drug overdose as an example, the Scream Queens actress wondered if a "very famous person" had to die to affect change, like it did with opioid laws. When it comes to Harvey and sexual harassment though, she mused if there would be an end: "Perhaps this grotesque power play to 'get some' by this brutish thug of a man and the attempts by him, his lawyer, his board and famous friends to, once again, keep it under wraps and blame the victim will fail. Perhaps the truth will out other sexual harassment, be it from a governor or a president or a presidential candidate or studio head or movie star or executive or anyone else complicit in this billionaire boys club bullshit that will come to an inglorious end. To quote the great Helen Reddy, 'I am woman hear me roar, in numbers too big to ignore.'" Preach! Let's hope more and more stars continue to speak out!

Reese Witherspoon Bravely Reveals She Was Sexually Assaulted By A Director At 16

Reese Witherspoon has become the latest A-lister to open up about sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood. Sadly, the industry vet has had firsthand experience regarding this issue.

Sadly, the industry vet has had firsthand experience regarding this issue. As you surely know, countless actresses -- including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, etc. -- have come forward this last week to expose indie movie mogul Harvey Weinstein as a sexual predator. While Miz Witherspoon has not declared herself as one of Harvey's victims, she certainly empathizes with their plight as she's been harassed and/or assaulted several times over the course of her career. Related: Courtney Love Warned Women About Harvey YEARS Ago In fact, while giving a speech at Elle's Women in Hollywood event on Monday, the Oscar winner revealed she was only 16 when a director assaulted her. The blonde powerhouse shared: "This has been a really hard week for women in Hollywood, for women all over the world, and a lot of situations and a lot of industries are forced to remember and relive a lot of ugly truths. I have my own experiences that have come back to me very vividly and I find it really hard to sleep, hard to think, hard to communicate a lot of the feelings that I've been having about anxiety, honest, the guilt for not speaking up earlier." It's just so heartbreaking that so many women in the industry have had such unsavory experiences with men in Tinseltown. The Big Little Lies actress continued: "[I feel] true disgust at the director who assaulted me when I was 16 years old and anger at the agents and the producers who made me feel that silence was a condition of my employment... And I wish that I could tell you that was an isolated incident in my career, but sadly it wasn't. I've had multiple experiences of harassment and sexual assault and I don't speak about them very often." How awful. Nonetheless, the many brave women opening up about their experiences with sexual misconduct has inspired Reese to "speak up loudly." After revealing that she feels "less alone" amid the confessions, Witherspoon concluded: "I feel really, really encouraged that there will be a new normal. For the young women in this room, life is going to be different because we're with you, we have your back and it makes me feel better. It makes me so sad to talk about these issues, but I would be remiss not to." Hear! Hear! Like Reese, we stand with the many victims who've bravely come forward. [Image via FayesVision/WENN.].....»»

On Tuesday, the Broad City co-creator took to Instagram to share her personal experiences with sexual misconduct as part of the "Me Too" campaign. Related: All 45 Women Who Have Accused Harvey Weinstein So Far In case you missed it, as a response to the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Alyssa Milano encouraged women and men everywhere to share the phrase "Me Too" if they've faced sexual harassment and/or assault. Thousands have since participated in the movement and offered up incredibly personal anecdotes. For her #MeToo post, Miz Glazer revealed that she's been sexually harassed many times over the years. In fact, the comedienne was forced to fire two staffers, "one background actor and one sound guy," over sexual harassment reasons. When questioned about her decision, the funny woman stood her ground. Per Ilana, she clapped back: "I was asked, ‘Are you sure?' Hm. Okay yeah lemme think a sec — YEAH I'M FUCKING SURE. cuz getting sexually harassed seems to be a constant, but having the opportunity to do something about it is rare." Sadly, those incidents weren't the only ones Glazer faced as she also had to file a complaint against a "creepyass" doctor last year. Be sure to read the 30-year-old's telling statement for yourself (below). #metoo - big queenly thanks to @tracelysette & @violadavis posting this so i felt brave enough to!A post shared by ilana glazer (@ilanusglazer) on Oct 17, 2017 at 12:11pm PDT Thank you for sharing, Ilana!

Lisa Bloom Explains Why She"s Advising "Gross" Harvey Weinstein Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations — WATCH HERE!

Why Lisa Bloom? WHY?? As we reported, on Thursday, The New York Times published a shocking exposé accusing Harvey Weinstein of "decades of sexual harassment," which has led him to reaching "at least eight settlements with women."

As we reported, on Thursday, The New York Times published a shocking exposé accusing Harvey Weinstein of "decades of sexual harassment," which has led him to reaching "at least eight settlements with women." While the movie producer released a statement to the newspaper saying he is "remorseful about the people I hurt," his lawyer Charles Harder announced plans for a lawsuit against the Times for publishing "a story that is saturated with false and defamatory statements." On Friday, Bloom appeared on Good Morning America where she explains why she is defending the 65-year-old amid the allegations. While she is not legally representing him in any lawsuit, she acts as his "adviser." Related: Gloria Allred Basically Shades The Fuck Out Of Daughter Host George Stephanopoulos began the interview by saying he is "surprised" that Lisa would stand by the Hollywood mogul given her history with sexual harassment cases. He said: "I have to say I'm surprised you're here this morning. You've been here and represented women who have taken on Bill Cosby and Bill O'Reilly, Donald Trump, sexual-harassment cases. Why did you switch sides in this case?" That's when the lawyer explained: "I've known Harvey for about a year and these rumors have swirled around him for a long time. And I said to him, you know, ‘What's going on? This is not OK.' And Harvey and I had a lot of frank conversations about this and when this New York Times story was about to break and Harvey expressed to me the same remorse that you see now, I said, 'We have to throw out the old playbook, OK? You're not going to be attacking women. You're not going to be disrespecting women. You're not going to be digging up dirt on them and embarrassing them. That's the tired old way to go. If you are genuinely remorseful, say so, admit what you've done wrong, apologize and let's have your actions speak for themselves."' While she admits his "workplace misconduct" is "gross" and "wrong," when asked if his behavior is "sexual harassment," Bloom tiptoed around the term. She said: "I think Harvey acknowledged, yes, there was misconduct over a period of years. He's big, loud guy. People are intimidated by him. I'm not—you know, I'm a big-mouth lawyer myself. I'll stand up to him. But if I'm a 23-year-old in his workplace, of course, they're intimidated." Watch the full interview (below): [Image via ABC News/YouTube.].....»»

Laura Dern Just Realized She Was Sexually Assaulted At 14 After Previously Justifying It

Sexual harassment has become such a pervasive part of our society that some may not even realize they're victims of misconduct.

Laura Dern had this very revelation following Elle's Women in Hollywood event on Monday. The Emmy winner discussed the event -- where Reese Witherspoon revealed she was assaulted by a director at 16 -- with Ellen DeGeneres for Wednesday's episode of the chat show. Related: Courtney Love Warned Women About Harvey YEARS Ago While at the event Laura touted that she was "one of the lucky ones" as she dodged experiences with sexual misconduct thanks to the guidance of her industry vet parents, Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd. However, hours before appearing on Ellen's talk show, the 50-year-old realized that she was sexually assaulted as a teen. The Jurassic Park alum explained: "It was an extraordinary experience, perhaps more than ever, to have this shared space and a tribe of women and artists talking about this industry, and ultimately therefore talking about sexual harassment in the workplace. And a very interesting thing happened this morning. I woke up and I realized that in that space I talked about how I was one of the lucky ones because I was raised by actors who told me their stories and told me what to look out for, and I realized that I was I still justifying behavior. And it was my mom who said, 'No, no, no, Laura—that was sexual assault. That was harassment. That was assault. You were 14 then.'" How awful. Apparently, prior to her mother bringing up the experience, Laura hadn't classified it as sexual assault or harassment. She continued: "You realize how in our culture we have justified, and therefore even condoned behavior, as though it's the norm." It's sad, but very true. Nonetheless, Dern was "very moved" by the brave stories she heard at the Elle event. In case you didn't know, Laura and Reese are close friends and recently costarred in Big Little Lies together. Thankfully, it seems the powerful ladies in Hollywood are determined to build a "commission" so that victims can report abuse. The A-lister concluded: "The most exciting part is in moving forward, we talked about the forming of a commission, which Kathy Kennedy presented...So to have a place, even anonymously, to reach out and say, 'There is an abuse of power here and something is not OK.'" We're SO on board with this idea!! Bravo. [Image via EllenTube.].....»»

Megyn Kelly is weighing in on the sexual harassment issue as she's recently penned an op-ed on the topic for Time magazine. In addition to detailing her experiences with the former President of Fox News Roger Ailes, the Megyn Kelly Today star also took shots at Mayim Bialik and Donna Karan for their opinions amid the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Related: Weinstein Accused Of Violently Attacking Cannes Chauffeur Specifically, Miz Kelly insisted that "the victim blaming must stop." On Mayim and Donna's recent controversy, Megyn wrote: "Often it seems there is almost a presumption that those who get harassed must have done something to invite it, which leads too many victims to stay silent. Actress Mayim Bialik thought this was the time to discuss the virtues of 'not being a perfect ten' or being someone who hasn't had plastic surgery or who avoids flirting with men. (She apologized.) Donna Karan also had to apologize for suggesting that women are "asking for it." How insulting to victims. There are laws in this country. Wearing a short skirt doesn't violate them. Shoving one's tongue down an employee's throat does." Damnnnnn. While Megyn's not wrong in her opinion, we should reiterate that both Bialik and Karan have since apologized for their words. Understandably, this issue hits close to home for the blonde journalist as she was one of Ailes' many victims prior to his ousting at Fox. According to Kelly, she reported the late businessman's behavior to her superior, but sadly, "nothing was done." The 46-year-old went on to speculate that a "partnership with men" is the answer to ending sexual harassment in the workplace. The industry vet noted: "Perhaps the most critical solution lies in partnership with the men. The harassers must stop; we know this. But male titans of industry must stand up for decency. Shout it from the rooftops and whisper it in the bars when women aren't around, because we don't often get invited to the late-night drinks where those conversations happen. Those are the moments... Women alone cannot change the culture. We need men. Evolved ones. Kind ones. Brave and scared ones, like those who fear expulsion from the fraternity if they object to a male colleague's bad behavior." Hmmm, inneresting point.

In case you haven't heard the story of how a young Democratic National Committee staffer named Seth Rich was the one who [...] We hope you're sitting down for this: Fox News is being sued... and it's NOT for sexual harassment! No, the latest legal trouble to plague the network is about Donald Trump's favorite subject: fake news. In case you haven't heard the story of how a young Democratic National Committee staffer named Seth Rich was the one who gave the DNC info to WikiLeaks, good -- because it's complete bullshit. Related: Sean Hannity Lost A LOT Of Advertisers After Spreading The Story! Even Fox retracted the story after a week, after a groundswell of offense -- see, Rich was murdered tragically young and was unable to defend himself. Of course, right wing conspiracy theorists used this as part of the narrative; he must have been murdered by the evil Democrats. Disgusting. Fox News tarnished the name of a dead man for what? Ratings? Nope. According to a new lawsuit filed on Tuesday, it was about distracting the American public from the Russia investigation -- and at least one person involved said TRUMP SIGNED OFF ON IT. Former police detective and sometime Fox News paid commentator Rod Wheeler claims in his suit that the story was knowingly fabricated by a reporter named Malia Zimmerman and a wealthy Trump supporter named Ed Butowsky to "establish that Seth Rich provided WikiLeaks with the DNC emails to shift the blame from Russia." Butowsky openly admits he reached out to Rich's parents and convinced them to let him hire Wheeler to investigate the murder. But according to the lawsuit, it was NOT to find the truth, but because they already had the story planned and wanted a credible source: "Specifically, it was their aim to have Mr. Wheeler confirm that: Seth Rich was responsible for the leak of DNC emails to WikiLeaks; and Seth Rich was murdered by a Democrat operative because he leaked the emails to WikiLeaks." Wheeler and Butowsky even met with Sean Spicer to give him updates on the investigation; Spicer admits the meeting took place but says the President didn't know about it. But that's not what Butowsky said at the time. In a text message sent to Wheeler at the time, Butowsky explicitly refers to Trump approving the story: Butowsky now claims he was kidding about the President's involvement. Interesting how often they use that excuse, isn't it? That same excuse cyber bullies and Twitter trolls always use. Huh. BTW, there are also voicemails available with the same confirmations. He doesn't sound like he's "kidding." If this is true, the President is partially responsible not just for spreading fake news but for CREATING it. Related: 10 Times Donald Trump Helped Spread Fake News! When Wheeler didn't give Butowsky exactly what he wanted, the lawsuit says, Zimmerman wrote up the article with fake quotes from Wheeler, including: "My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and Wikileaks." This article and these quotes became the basis of Fox News' reporting on the story. According to the lawsuit, Butowsky had a hand in that as well, coaching the hosts of Fox and Friends on how to talk about it. Afterward Wheeler came out against Fox News, saying he had been misquoted. Eventually the network had no choice but to retract. Even though Fox News pulled the story, which appears to have no basis in fact, Butowsky kept it going. He tweeted: "Fox News story was pulled b/c Rod Wheeler said [he] didn't say a quote ... How much did DNC pay him?" Of course. Because anyone who denies the story is part of the coverup. Now Wheeler is suing over the tarnishing of his name. According to the suit: "Wheeler was subsequently forced to correct the false record and, as a result, lost all credibility in the eyes of the public. Mr. Wheeler has suffered irreparable damage to his reputation and his career will likely never recover." Well, he's right about that. And yet somehow Zimmerman is still working on stories for Fox News...

President of news Jay Wallace released a statement saying: "The accusation that FoxNews.com published Malia Zimmerman's story to help detract from coverage of the Russia collusion issue is completely erroneous. The retraction of this story is still being investigated internally and we have no evidence that Rod Wheeler was misquoted by Zimmerman. Additionally, Fox News vehemently denies the race discrimination claims in the lawsuit — the dispute between Zimmerman and Rod Wheeler has nothing to do with race." So was Trump a part of all this? Was he willing to spread false information to distract from his own political problems, to blame a murder victim to defend himself?
