Remember that scene in the sixth season of Game Of Thrones when Daenerys becomes queen of the Dothraki by burning the whole fucking Khal house down? The Hollywood equivalent is going down right now with Rose McGowan.
We are all that annoying lady at the Costco exit checking for receipts, and Rose is more than happy to pull out a fistful. As we well know, the dozens of allegations of Harvey Weinstein caused him to run from Hollywood and NYC to rehab in Arizona. In Hollywood, Harvey is even more loathed than gluten.
In their piece on Harvey, The New York Times alleged that he had settled a sexual harassment case with Rose McGowan for $100,000. Rose has since said Harvey raped her, and she’s been opening up more about other creeps in town. She alleged that Ben Affleck is a turd. She also said that Matt Damon was an enabler, and Harvey’s brother, Bob Weinstein, wasn’t in the dark about the whole matter like he has implied in the past. And now Rose has taken to Facebook to discuss the next name on her Kill Bill list: Lisa Bloom.
Lisa was Harvey’s lawyer, and everyone – including her mother Gloria Allred – were all, “Something in the buttermilk ain’t clean” since she usually represents alleged victims of sexual assault. Lisa went from defending Harvey to quitting his ass pretty soon after the article came out, but Rose isn’t buying it. BuzzFeed reports that Rose claims that Lisa wanted her to basically wear a “Team Harvey” t-shirt once the story dropped – and was willing to pay a ton for it:
“You know what is truth, Lisa? I feel like people should know that you’ve been calling my literary agent and saying there’d be money for me if I got on the ‘Harvey’s Changed’ bandwagon? You told her that I should care about HIS reputation. How HE has a family now and how HE has changed. Well, guess what? I’ve always had a family and that didn’t stop him from assaulting me.”
Rose says Lisa started with a $1 million offer and eventually went as high as $6 million. Rose turned it down. That’s damn impressive considering that I once took a $10 Blockbuster gift card in exchange for taking the fall for my brother who broke our mom’s ceramic turtle garden sprinkler. Lisa responded:
“I never called Rose McGowan’s literary agent… I don’t even know who her agent is. I never threatened Rose McGowan, nor offered her money, nor reached out to her. This is completely false. I have withdrawn from my representation of Harvey Weinstein and apologized for being involved in this. I am sorry for the pain Rose McGowan is in. But this is completely false.”
This whole shit is really making an impact on Hollywood. I mean, it’s moved a slew of dudes from the “potentially trashy” column over to the “sure as HAIL trashy” column. AND it’s made it where perennial press conference princess Lisa actually is loathing the attention. The world is seeing some fucked up shit, and I don’t really know how to help since it’s Monday and the world is kind of awful. So I’ll just follow Mieka’s lead and post this picture of a puppy and kitten napping together. See, there is some good out there:
