    This afternoon, in a Super Soul conversation at the Apollo Theater, media titan Oprah Winfrey confirmed to Broadway icon Lin-Manuel Miranda that she will not be running for the presidency in 2020. Discussing their social platforms, Miranda confirmed that he would not consider running for public office, after which Winfrey chimed in, "I'M NOT EITHER!"

    Golden Globes was an indication she’s preparing to run for the White House. Kristol then took-up the hashtag #ImWithHer — once used by supporters of 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton — to highlight his support for Winfrey’s worldview. In an email, Kristol said the tweets were "tongue in cheek." "Though if she runs, couldn't she win the Democratic nomination and the general election?" he added. "And wouldn't she be a better president than Trump?"

    NBC deleted a tweet posted during Sunday night’s Golden Globes telecast which appeared to endorse the suggestion made by host Seth Meyers that Oprah Winfrey should be president of the U.S. “Nothing but respect for OUR future president,” NBC tweeted during the comedian’s monologue on Sunday night. […] The original tweet met with outrage from conservatives — including Donald Trump Jr. and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer — as well as members of the media who said it called into question the network’s objectivity. …
  • Elizabeth Warren on Oprah: “I Don’t Know” if America Wants Another Celebrity Billionaire

    Elizabeth Warren’s presidential ambitions could be crushed if Oprah ran for president. Who wants a whiny Warren when you could have an optimistic Oprah? And the addition of Oprah would also significantly dilute the women’s vote that Warren would be counting on. But in the current atmosphere, Warren couldn’t very well criticize Oprah when Alisyn Camerota asked her on CNN this morning to comment a possible President Winfrey. So Warren put on a happy face, gushing about Oprah’s Golden Globes speech, calling her “inspiring” and lauding Oprah’s “leadership.” But then Camerota asked whether America is hungry “for another mega-celebrity billionaire?”...

    Disgraced Hollywood movie producer Harvey Weinstein's personnel file has gone missing from his former company, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said Monday. Schneiderman said at a press conference in New York that his office was told the file was missing during an investigation into Weinstein's company. "We obtained a form of Mr. Weinstein's personnel file; we were told that the physical personnel file had gone missing, which is another issue of concern to us," Schneiderman said. "I don't know the number of complaints, but there were certainly dozens of formal complaints and many more informal complaints over the years."

    The LAPD has submitted three sexual abuse cases against Harvey Weinstein to the L.A. County District Attorney’s office for possible charges, a spokesman said Thursday. No details of the allegations were released. The LAPD has previously acknowledged that it was investigating a claim that Weinstein raped an Italian model at a hotel in 2013. The LAPD also said it was investigating an allegation that Weinstein committed “lewd acts” in 2015. The LAPD submitted the three cases on Feb. 1. The D.A.’s office can choose to file a case or decline to prosecute, but it may also request additional investigation or...

    A longtime Hollywood exec who served as Rose McGowan's manager when the actress was allegedly raped by Harvey Weinstein committed suicide Wednesday amid a slew of media attention her family says made her collateral damage in the pair’s war of words. Jill Messick's family told The Hollywood Reporter she had battled depression for many years, but had recently been "victimized" by allegations put forth by McGowan and the subsequent response from Weinstein. The former Miramax production executive was McGowan's manager in January 1997, when the actress has claimed she was raped by Weinstein in a hotel suite at the Sundance...

    Amid controversy over Uma Thurman’s near-fatal “Kill Bill” stunt, a 15-year-old interview with Quentin Tarantino went viral online Monday. The 2003 Howard Stern interview included an almost eight-minute defense of Roman Polanski by the famous director. “He didn’t rape a 13-year-old. It was statutory rape. It’s not the same thing. He had sex with a minor. That’s not rape. To me, when you use the word rape, you’re talking about violent, throwing them down...it’s like one of the most violent crimes in the world,” Tarantino told the shock jock. “You can’t throw the word ‘rape’ around. It’s like throwing the...

    Nine women accuse Vincent Cirrincione of sexually harassing them over a nearly 20-year period. Who is Cirrincione? He’s a Hollywood agent, known for launching Oscar-winning Halle Berry’s career and having also managed a number of other successful black actresses. “Three of the women say he pushed for sex as a condition for representing them, and that he did not take them on when they refused,” the Washington Post reported on Friday. “A fourth said he offered to help advance her career if she agreed to have sex with him monthly. A fifth actress said he masturbated in front of her...

    Yes, Uma Thurman is mad. She has been raped. She has been sexually assaulted. She has been mangled in hot steel. She has been betrayed and gaslighted by those she trusted. And we’re not talking about her role as the blood-spattered bride in “Kill Bill.” We’re talking about a world that is just as cutthroat, amoral, vindictive and misogynistic as any Quentin Tarantino hellscape. We’re talking about Hollywood, where even an avenging angel has a hard time getting respect, much less bloody satisfaction. Playing foxy Mia Wallace in 1994’s “Pulp Fiction” and ferocious Beatrix Kiddo in “Kill Bill,” Volumes 1...

    Appearing on Tuesday's NBC Today, advertising executive Donny Deutsch and psychotherapist Robi Ludwig both agreed that the American people should not stop being "shocked" by political sex scandals. Deutsch declared: "...we have to stop being shocked and amazed....when men who are conquerors by nature also chase women....we as a society have got to become a little more anesthetized to this." Moments later, as Duetsch one again proclaimed, "Let's stop being shocked at this stuff!," Ludwig blamed American moral values for the attention the scandal received: "We're a very puritanical country and so we're a little bit sexually repressed. So on...

    Harvey Weinstein made his assistant clean semen off the couch after his sexual encounters, according to a new lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court. Sandeep Rehal, who worked at The Weinstein Company for two years between 2013 and 2015, claims she felt demeaned and terrified while working for the disgraced film mogul. Weinstein even made the then-26-year-old type emails he dictated while naked, according to the suit.

    It’s Day Two of the government shutdown. Democrats spent yesterday celebrating and marching, even here in Park City at the Sundance Film Festival. Their message was an important one, according to the Daily Beast: This year’s rally seemed united by two themes: the importance of this moment for women, and, well, “F*ck Donald Trump.” While last year’s march at the Fest was said to top out at 4000 (yuge, in Park City) this year’s was exaggerated to reflect “hundreds.”  Of course last year’s numbers included Harvey Weinstein who was marching in solidarity with them, and we all know how many independent,...
