The Queen is cleaning house which usually just means running a white glove over every surface in the palace and tsking under her breath. But this time she’s actually rolling up her sleeves to do some real work. According to Deadline, The Queen has snatched Harvey Weinstein’s honorary CBE title straight from his cold, might-as-well-be dead hands. And just to prove she’s not playing least-favorites, Express UK reports that her beloved boy HRH Prince Andrew, is very likely to be stripped of his title as well. There is a little silver lining for the fellas though, both can console themselves by using the alternate prefix, Hurricane.
Convicted rapist, Harvey Weinstein, is trying to fight a sex crime law in New York. Hmm, I wonder why a convicted rapist would be against a sex crime law? Hmmm….. any ideas? Well, Harvey has once again proven that he’s an evil sack of demon turds by claiming that the Child Victims Act is unconstitutional and one woman’s claims he abused her years ago violated his due process since without the CVA her claims would be time-barred. What a stand-up fellow, trying to further silence victims! Now I see why he’s a feminist hero!
Apparently, Rose McGowan woke up this morning and decided it was a good day to wrap up some unfinished business. Back in February of 2018 while Rose was in the midst of promoting her memoir Brave, she did an interview with Ronan Farrow and disclosed that she had been sexually abused by a “very famous” director when she was 15. At the time she did not say who it was, only that she’d “get to him” when the time was right. Well, today the clock has struck “oh shit” O’clock for Alexander Payne. Rose #TooktoTwitter to make good on her promise, accusing Alexander of statutory rape.
Two weeks ago, another one of Harvey Weinstein’s many lawsuits was wrapped up into a tidy, yet gross, package, when the New York Attorney General’s office announced that an $18,875,000 compensation fund would be set up for nine of Harvey’s victims. Harvey’s settlements are being covered by his insurance company. But it’s now being reported that US District Court Judge Alvin Hellerstein released a statement today saying that he’s not going to approve that settlement, so someone better come up with a Plan B.
The New York Attorney General’s office announced yesterday that an $18,875,000 compensation fund will be set up for nine women who filed a 2017 civil rights lawsuit against convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein for, well – being Harvey. Of course, that’s not the official language that was used in their lawsuit. Although I feel like if you presented that argument in a formal legal setting any time after 2017, most people in the courtroom would say, “No, gotcha – I totally get what you’re saying.”
First off, I could’ve attached a photo of Harvey Weinstein to this post, but it’s been a difficult few weeks, and your eyes don’t need the added stress. Now let’s move on to a lovely tale about the time James Gandolfini threatened to beat the shit outta Harvey. James’ Sopranos co-stars, Steve Schirripa (Bobby Baccalieri) and Michael Imperioli (Christopha), who co-host the podcast Talking Sopranos, shared this story on Joe Rogan’s podcast.
