One of the millions of allegations against Harvey Weinstein was Rose McGowan’s claim that he raped her at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival and gave her $100,000 in hush money. Not long after Rose said fuck it to any possible NDAs and said that Harvey did rape her, her former boyfriend and Grindhouse co-director Robert Rodriguez chimed in, saying he and Rose plotted to sell Grindhouse to Dimension as an act of revenge. Except according to Rose, Robert’s story needs a little footnote about how she believes he manipulated her by using her assault against her.
The Hollywood Hunger Games are being played out here in these streets and most of the town doesn’t even know that they pulled the short straw and have been reaped. Shoot a cannon for Meryl Streep and Rose McGowan. Both were critical players in the nasty game of “she knew” that The Guardian reports was devised by a right wing guerilla artist who goes by the name of Sabo. Turns out, the posters that went up all over Los Angeles this week bearing Meryl’s face with a red banner reading “she knew” across her eyes, were in retaliation for her politics. Her comments about Harvey Weinstein and the subsequent backlash were merely the fuel.
…does Rose McGowan have an alibi??
Meryl Streep spent the last few days sitting by the phone waiting to hear a call from her second-favorite Charmed actress (sorry, Rose, Shannen Doherty will always be top of the hot mess heap!). Rose never called Meryl, but now we know what she could have been doing instead. A slew of posters have popped up around Los Angeles accusing Meryl of being a pupil at the Ivanka Trump Skewl of Complicit Hos. Continue reading
When Meryl Streep heard the news about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged decades of creep terror, her wacky glasses damn near dropped off her face from the shock. Meryl claimed she knew nothing about Harvey’s “reputation,” but that she was disgusted nonetheless. Later she referred to what he allegedly did as a “gargantuan example of disrespect.”
That last word – disrespect – really rubbed Rose McGowan the wrong way. Rose hissed at Meryl that it’s not disrespect, it’s a crime, and proceeded to call Meryl “a lie.” Rose came for Meryl again last weekend after it was reported that some actresses will be silently protesting Hollywood’s sexual harassment problem by wearing black to the Golden Globes. Rose accused Meryl of putting the silent in silent protest while happily collecting awards from the industry. Meryl is calling bullshit on Rose’s comments.
Many actresses are planning to do a silent protest against sexual harassment in Hollywood by wearing black to the Golden Globes and other awards show, and there’s one person who is not impressed and that’s Rose McGowan.
You remember in the first Scream movie when Rose McGowan’s character tried to escape through the doggie access in the garage door and that asshole Ghostface flipped the switch? And she got smooshed? Well, that’s what Rose has been doing to Hollywood since she became one of the first female celebrities to speak openly about Harvey Weinstein. Showbiz has been trying to escape out the doggie door and Rose is smooshing those fools!
Sometime back, Rose shaved her head, said “EFF IT” to her career, loosened her cannon, and started tweeting. Since the Weinstein situation broke, she’s been calling everyone out in Hollywood whom she feels is either an abuser or complicit in said abuse.Take for example, her former Charmed co-star Alyssa Milano. Despite Alyssa’s now famous tweet urging her followers to use the #MeToo hashtag (that was started by social activist Tarana Burke in 2006), Rose remains unimpressed. Specifically, because Alyssa has also been going to bat for Harvey Weinstein’s now ex-wife, fashion designer Georgina Chapman. Much like you won’t see Rose wearing Marchesa anytime soon, you also won’t see her signing on to a Charmed reunion. Rose went in on Alyssa on Twitter on Friday. Eh, once you fire Shannen Doherty, your show is going to suck anyways. Continue reading
