WATCH: Charlie Rose Says He Didn’t Commit Any ‘Wrongdoings’ In Interview Outside NYC Apartment

Veteran broadcaster Charlie Rose, who has been accused of sexually harassing a spate of women, says he didn’t do anything wrong, in so many words. TMZ reporters tracked down the 75-year-old outside of his NYC apartment and grilled him about the recent accusations that he harassed and groped colleagues so often that his shoulder rubs were known as “the crusty paw” around the office. The tabloid photographer asked him if he had anything to say to the eight women who have accused him of “wrongdoings.” His response? “It’s not wrongdoings,” Rose muttered before quickly entering his apartment. This response is in stark contrast to the apologetic tone he struck yesterday in a written statement on the allegations, which accuse him of making lewd phone calls and strutting in front of colleagues naked, among other acts. “It is essential that these women know I hear them and that Continue reading "WATCH: Charlie Rose Says He Didn’t Commit Any ‘Wrongdoings’ In Interview Outside NYC Apartment"

Watch This Australian Politician Deliver a Bizarre Rant on Gay Marriage and Killer Crocodiles

We don’t know exactly what this is. Or why this is. We just know it needs to be watched. In comments to reporters on Sunday, Bob Katter — an Austrailian Parliament member — addressed the topic of gay marriage. It’s a subject which apparently ranks pretty low on Katter’s priority list. And it ranks very low when compared to, say, killer crocodiles. The politican’s remarks began smoothly enough, as he tried to adopt a posture of ambivalence. “I mean, you know, people are entitled to their sexual proclivities,” Katter said, with a chuckle. “Let there a thousand blossoms blooming.” Then, in the blink of an eye, Katter’s mood turned dark — and he executed one of the clumsiest segues in television history. “But I ain’t spending any time on it, because in the meantime, every three months, a person is torn to pieces by a crocodile in North Queensland.

Megyn Kelly: Hollywood’s Been ‘Moralizing’ to Us for Years, Should Have Directed at Themselves

As more and more big names in Hollywood face serious accusations of sexual misconduct and worse, Megyn Kelly noted this morning how, for years, Hollywood has been lecturing everyone else about morals. In a segment first flagged by The Hollywood Reporter, Kelly brought up a recent report about the LAPD reportedly investigating “almost two dozen cases of alleged criminal sexual misconduct connected to multiple people within the entertainment industry.” “This is the same industry,” Kelly observed, “that has been lecturing to us at every awards show for years about morals and values. It seems some of the moralizing should have been directed at themselves before they lectured the rest of America on how they need to be living.” She brought up Harvey Weinstein, Roman Polanski, Continue reading "Megyn Kelly: Hollywood’s Been ‘Moralizing’ to Us for Years, Should Have Directed at Themselves"

Weinstein Reportedly Had List of Nearly 100 People For His Investigators to Go After

Alleged serial sexual harasser and assaulter Harvey Weinstein reportedly had a list of nearly 100 people of interest for his team of private investigators to target in the event that any of them threatened to expose his misconduct. Per The Guardian, 91 film producers, actors, publicists, and other related professionals were put on Weinstein’s hit list early this year — months before the explosive New York Times and New Yorker pieces that broke open the scandal. While the UK newspaper did not release the full list, it did include actresses Laura Madden, Sophie Dix, Rose McGowan, Katherine Kendall, and Annabella Sciorra — all of whom have accused the Hollywood superstar of varied levels of sexual misconduct. The paper reports:
“Individuals named on the list were to be targeted by investigators who would covertly extract and accumulate information from those who might know of claims or Continue reading "Weinstein Reportedly Had List of Nearly 100 People For His Investigators to Go After"

Stephen Colbert Mocks Louie Gohmert’s Conspiracy Chart: ‘Let’s Play Candyland’

On Friday night, Stephen Colbert had some fun at the expense of Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) for his conspiracy chart he displayed during the Jeff Sessions hearing this week. At the hearing, Gohmert used the chart to connect Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Special Counsel Robert Mueller to the corruption that took place during the Obama administration, which he thought “stinks to high heaven.” “Yes, it does stink because Louie Gohmert just charted,” Colbert quipped. “Stupid, but deadly.” For further analysis, Colbert had that exact chart made for his show, which he called the “Mouth of Madness.” “Let’s play Candyland,” he told his audience.” The Late Show host began at Barack Obama and followed a line that hit former National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes, and followed another line that hit Obama again elsewhere in the chart. “My God, there’s two of them!” Colbert Continue reading "Stephen Colbert Mocks Louie Gohmert’s Conspiracy Chart: ‘Let’s Play Candyland’"

Twitter Blasts Lena Dunham For Supporting Girls Writer Accused of Sexual Assault

Self-proclaimed feminist Lena Dunham is being slammed for defending a writer from her HBO show Girls after he was accused of sexual assault.

On Friday afternoon, it was reported that Murray Miller was accused by actress Aurora Perrineau of sexual assault. Sgt. Salvador Rios of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that she filed a police report.

Miller’s attorney Don Walerstein issued the following statement denying the allegation:

“Mr. Miller categorically and vehemently denies Ms. Perrineau’s outrageous claims. After being contacted several weeks ago by lawyers who — on Ms. Perrineau’s behalf — sought substantial monetary damages from him, Mr. Miller’s legal team gathered overwhelming evidence directly contradicting these false and offensive claims. Only after her demands for money were rebuffed did Ms. Perrineau go to the police. Mr. Miller looks forward to sharing all evidence and information with any and all authorities seeking the truth

Second Trans Woman Accuses Transparent Star Jeffrey Tambor of Sexual Harassment

Actor Jeffrey Tambor is now facing multiple accusers of sexual harassment. Earlier this month, Amazon had launched its own investigation after the Emmy-winner was accused of harassing former personal assistant Van Barnes, a transgender woman, who claimed on her private Facebook account that he “repeatedly propositioned her, made lewd comments, groped her and threatened to sue her if she spoke up.” He flat-out denied the allegations. Late on Thursday, transgender actress Trace Lysette accused him of making “lewd, sexually suggestive and unwelcomed remarks to her on a number of occasions” as well as “physically pressing up” against her in a sexually aggressive manner during a break while filming. “He came in close, put his bare feet on top of mine so I could not move, leaned his body against me, and began quick, discreet thrust back and forth against my body. I felt his penis on my hip Continue reading "Second Trans Woman Accuses Transparent Star Jeffrey Tambor of Sexual Harassment"
