Of course she did. I'm not saying Cohen isn't a dick, he makes a living by mocking stupid people for being stupid, so he probably is, but Wilson is just promoting her book. It's not a new phenomenon that one celebrity writes a book and the most interesting things get leaked and there is nothing more interesting than slamming another celebrity, preferably a more famous one.

Is there a topic for Quiet on Set?
Or is this a catch all even for tv shows?

Pretty sure TV people have been discussed in this thread (maybe even the Nick shows?).

Majors avoids jail. He was ordered to participate in a 1 year counseling program. Whether he can salvage his acting career is another story.

Seems like Diddy’s doings are quite far-reaching, and include his own son, Cuba Gooding Jr., and a few others:

All the famous people who appear in the sexual assault lawsuits filed against Sean Diddy Combs

Cuba Gooding Jr. is Diddy's son? Where does the Jr come from? and isn't he older than Diddy?

I mean it's a list
his own son,
Cuba Gooding Jr.,
and a few others.

I know, I know, woosh, but just in case someone was legitimately confused. And these people are not accusing Diddy, they are being accused alongside Diddy, if that wasn't clear.

Was a gag until D didn’t get the joke. 🫠

Well this is unfortunate. At least he stays in prison, though.

Harvey Weinstein’s 2020 rape conviction overturned by NY appeals court
https://apnews.com/article/weinstein...71e8bd3574c4a3

While Thursday’s ruling was a blow to #MeToo advocates, they noted it was based on legal technicalities and not an exoneration of Weinstein’s behavior, saying the original trial irrevocably moved the cultural needle on attitudes about sexual assault.

The Manhattan district attorney’s office said it intends to retry Weinstein, and his accusers could again be forced to retell their stories on the witness stand.

In a stinging dissent, Judge Madeline Singas wrote that the Court of Appeals was continuing a “disturbing trend of overturning juries’ guilty verdicts in cases involving sexual violence.”

​​​​​​​The reversal of Weinstein’s conviction is the second major #MeToo setback in the last two years. The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal of a Pennsylvania court decision to throw out Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction.

He's 72 and still sitting in prison, so as long as he dies in there, I'm good.

Nevermind that in the 70s he admitted to multiple rapes when he was a young boy.

45 years ago, he was talking about something that happened almost 60 years ago. IDK what happened, and it is unclear what he was even saying happened. He was a poor, illiterate criminal in 1950s France. I'm certain by 21st standards, half the sexual acts taking place in France at that time were rapes.

I remember back in the 90s when Hollywood kept trying to make Depardieu a "thing" and the public didn't bite.

Is Azis Ansari blacklisted or cancelled?

I have not seen him in a long time and assume he would pop up in a series or show or movie somewhere.

I think he did one Netfix special after the allegations.

He’s directing a movie. The first one he attempted to make got shutdown and scrapped because of stuff with Bill Murray.

Kevin Spacey is back, baby!
https://www.cnn.com/2024/05/16/enter...eer/index.html

Spacey is pushing back on the “rush to judgment” against him and is being backed by some big names as he seeks to reclaim his acting career.
Sharon Stone and Liam Neeson issued statements of support for Spacey in a story by The Telegraph.

And David Copperfield is cancelled!
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...-investigation

The celebrated American magician David Copperfield has been accused by 16 women of engaging in sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior, according to a Guardian US investigation.

More than half of the allegations are from women who said they were under 18 at the time of the incidents. Some said they were as young as 15, although he may not have known their ages.

The allegations against him include claims that he drugged three women before he had sexual relations with them, which they felt they were unable to consent to.

The claims against the 67-year-old illusionist – which he has denied – span from the late 1980s to 2014.
