People reports that Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx showed up to Paramount Pictures in Los Angeles on Wednesday to celebrate him hitting half a century, which is refreshing since it wasn’t that long ago that rumors were rampant that Scientology overlords would sooner invite Leah Remini over for a game of Scrabble than let Katie go public with her post-Tom Cruise boo thang.
And yes, I should tell you in advance that this post was co-written by Bitter and Petty. (“Aren’t all your posts?” – you)
Last month, a former model named Keri Claussen Khalighi alleged that Russell Simmons had raped her (while Brett Ratner watched) in 1991. Russell claimed everything was consensual. Then screenwriter Jenny Lumet accused him of alleged rape. Russell released a statement implying it was all consensual. Yesterday, The New York Times published the accounts of four women accusing Russell of sexual assault, three of whom accuse him of rape. Prepare for a case of déjà-vu, because Russell has responded, and he recycled his favorite denial about everything being consensual.
Step aside Harriet Tubman! Move over Ida B. Wells! Take a seat Rosa Parks (oooh, that one’s saved for Omarosa, can you take another one? Sorry, thanks.)! There’s a new black lady in town who’s here to fight for your rights. That’s right, everybody please welcome future civil rights pioneer OOOOOOOOMAAAAAAAROOOOOOOOOOSAAAAAAA!!!!!!
Omarosa Manigault-Newman sat down with Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan this morning to let you know that she did it for her people. You know, black people!
Documentarian Morgan Spurlock spilled his own beans last night and let the world know that he has a history of sexual misconduct before anybody else could. Morgan, who had a moment back in the early aughts with his popular Super Size Me documentary, has admitted that he’s been accused of rape in the past. In an essay titled “I Am Part Of The Problem”, Spurlock also admits that he’s paid an employee off in a sexual harassment case. And that he is a cheater. And a drunk. And that’s he’s an all around world-class asshole. And that he’s been sweating out these post-Weinstein days asking himself, “When will they come for me?” Sounds refreshingly honest, doesn’t it? Well, plot twist! The statement is garbage.
On Tuesday, The New York Times published an op-ed written by Salma Hayek detailing the alleged horrors of working with Harvey Weinstein on the 2002’s Frida. Salma claimed she was faced with a non-stop barrage of sexual harassment, sexual assault, requests to look sexier as Frida Kahlo, blatant threats of murder and general bullying.
Well, gather ’round, it’s time for another edition of Harvey Weinstein Half-Assed Apology Theater!
