In the wake of all the Hollywood women coming forward with their tales of being sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein, this revelation has hit home. Various Hollywood celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Rose Mcgowan, Mira Sorvino, Zoe Brock and Ambra Battilana and the list is endless. But a recent piece of news as reputed by a leading Hollywood website claims that Harvey Weistein wanted to spend one night with former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
A report in news18.com states that Harvey Weistein wanted to meet Aishwarya, but her former manager ensured it never happened. Talent manager, Simone Sheffield, was quoted in a report as saying, “I used to manage Indian actress Aishwarya Rai. While dealing with Harvey I found it comical how hard he tried to get Aishwarya alone. But he was a pig… looked and acted like a big bully pig. He asked me to leave the meeting numerous times and I politely declined. When we were leaving his office, he cornered me and said, ‘What do I have to do to get her alone?’ I told him to kiss my black ass. When Ash and I returned to our hotel, I sent Harvey a steel pig trough filled with DIET COKE as a thank you gift for the meeting. Yes, we did do business and yes, he eventually threatened me. Told me I’d never work in this business, blah blah blah…what I said to him, I can’t print. But you can be sure, I never gave him the opportunity to even breathe on my client. Fox News. Weinstein.
The President. Such abuses have gone on way before these creeps and will sadly continue until women feel empowered and protected enough to speak out. They say there’s strength in numbers…perhaps. BUT it takes only one brave soul to take the first stand. With social media as your platform, that one brave soul will lead an army, in no time. Brava Ladies….don’t hold back – THE TRUTH. Protect one another. Support one another. Love one another.” There is a pic of Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan posing with Harvey Weistein.
