Even though "Saturday Night Live" didn't have someone play Harvey Weinstein, the scandal surrounding the Hollywood mogul was a focus for the NBC sketch series on Saturday night. "SNL" put on an actress round table on sexual harassment in Hollywood sketch that included Leslie Jones' Viola Davis, Cecily Strong's Marion Cotillard and Kate McKinnon playing an old Hollywood starlet named Debette Goldry. "I did have one meeting with Harvey," McKinnon's Goldry said. "I was invited to his hotel room and when I arrived he was naked, hanging upside down from a monkey bar. He tried to trick me into thinking his genitals were actually his face. It almost worked. The resemblance is uncanny." The leader of
A top Federal Communications Commission official is putting pressure on her colleagues to end their silence amid President Trump's threats against TV networks that are critical of his administration. Democratic commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, who was first appointed by President Obama and brought back to the commission by Trump, said the FCC should make it very clear that the agency will not revoke licenses simply because Trump does not like their coverage. "History won't be kind to silence," Rosenworcel, who is one of five FCC commissioners, told CNN's Brian Stelter on "Reliable Sources" Sunday. "I think it's important for all the commissioners to make clear that they support the First Amendment,
Woody Allen, who called the sexual assault and harassment allegations directed at Harvey Weinstein, "very sad for everybody involved" in a BBC interview over the weekend, is now clarifying his remarks. "When I said I felt sad for Harvey Weinstein I thought it was clear the meaning was because he is a sad, sick man," Allen said in a statement obtained by CNN on Monday. "I was surprised it was treated differently. Lest there be any ambiguity, this statement clarifies my intention and feelings." Weinstein is facing dozens of allegations that include sexual assault and rape. Allen called the situation "tragic for the poor women that were involved, sad for Harvey that [his] life is so messed up" in
(CNN)Heidi Klum says it's not just Harvey Weinstein. The "Project Runway" host released a statement to People this week about the scandal that has besieged Weinstein, whose former company has co-produced her show. "I wish I could say that the horrible stories I read about Harvey Weinstein are a rare occurrence in our society, but that is simply not the case," Klum said. "We would be naive to think that this behavior only happens in Hollywood. This is one example of the more pervasive problem of the mistreatment of women around the world." Weinstein was fired from The Weinstein Company on Sunday in the wake of a sexual misconduct scandal that has grown to include allegations of rape from four
"Maybe it was innocent. But it felt wrong," Greg replied. Later, more people come forward with stories about encounters with Diana. Gene (Brad Morris) alleges he was told to eat a banana in front of her or else he'd be fired. Wayne (Sheaun McKinney) alleges she made him dance if he wanted his request for a new piece of camera equipment approved. "How many more men have to come forward before you believe us?" Wayne asks. "In the words of the Cosby jurors, 'Duh, I dunno, more than 60,'" Katie says. When confronted by Katie, Diana admits to her actions, but brushes them off. "They wanted it," she says. Plus, the "off color comments"? They're just "locker room talk." Diana praises Katie's "loyalty"
Mick Fleetwood is the backbone of the band that bears his name; the man who kept Fleetwood Mac rolling through the best and hardest of times. In the early days he was their manager, hiring and firing musicians like a soft rock Alan Sugar. By the late 70s, he was the bandage that stopped them falling apart amidst drug abuse, infidelity and betrayal. And sitting behind his "back to front" drum kit, Fleetwood is the band's beating heart, constructing dozens of unforgettable rhythms - from the syncopated shuffle of Go Your Own Way, to the fidgety cowbell riff of Oh Well. But surprisingly, the 70-year-old doesn't rate his own drumming. "There's no discipline," he says. "I can't do the same thing every
Two more women have accused Harvey Weinstein of raping them as the top Hollywood producer finds himself increasingly shunned by his peers. British actress Lysette Anthony says he attacked her at her London home in the late 1980s while another, unidentified woman says she was raped in 1992. The organisation behind the Oscars has voted to expel Weinstein and his own brother called him "sick and depraved". Weinstein, 65, insists any sexual contacts he had were consensual. Police in London are investigating an allegation against Weinstein who is also being investigated by police in New York. More than two dozen women - among them actresses Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rose McGowan - have made
