Sorry if this has been posted prior, but apparently Jeremy Piven took and passed a lie detector related to the harassment claims against him. Don't know that it means much but that is what is being reported.

That's the thing, a lot of these guys don't believe that what they did was wrong or that it's harassment, so a lie detector isn't going to reveal anything other than the fact that they're okay with what they did.

According to the story, he was specifically asked whether he touched the women at all or if they were in his trailer as claimed by one of the accusers. That is pretty specific and is not related to judgement or believing in any wrongdoing.

Many of the questions on the lie detector test were very direct, ie. "Did you ever 'grab' and/or fondle Ms. Ariane Bellamar's breasts?" He answered "no" to that. He was also asked if Ariane ever even went into this trailer on the set of "Entourage," and he said she had not.

"After a careful evaluation of all test questions, including relevant, irrelevant and control questions, it is the examiner's analysis and professional opinion that Mr. Piven showed no reactions indicative of deception to any of the relevant questions," the report claimed, adding that Jeremy passed all his questions.

After Arianne, two other women said Jeremy sexually assaulted them, too. The Blast says he took polygraph tests about those claims and passed those test, as well.


However he is an actor so he is probably better at most at putting himself in the mindset where he could pass it as well.

OMFG what the fuck is going on? These Hollywood men can't get pussy in the loads (who knows why) they have to go around forcefully grabbing it? How pathetic. Disgusting.

These celebrities are dumb as fuck and deserve to get burned for it.

Wow, Charlie Rose. This is really anyone and everyone. I don’t watch every night or anything but I’ve watched a lot of interviews with some of my favorite celebrities and like his show’s simple format.

One trend I've noticed about all these celebrities getting caught in these harassment allegations:

They're all graduates of The Benny Hill School of "How To Meet Women."

Charlie Rose now suspended by CBS and PBS because of the allegations against him.

The dominoes just keep falling. Would not surprise me if he gets canned by both.

Now it's Oliver Stone's turn.

When Roger Stone boasts about putting Franken "in the barrel" before Tweeden's accusation came out, is it so far-fetched to think the alt-right could have orchestrated this? Bannon might not be personally involved, but you can bet he approves of all the calls for Franken to resign.

Remember when Sebastian Gorka said he and his pals could do more damage from outside the government than within it? Just possibly, this is a taste of what he meant.

Arianna Huffington is denying that anything inappropriate occurred after The New York Post's Page Six on Monday published images that appear to show Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) groping her during a photoshoot in 2000.

Huffington said the photos were meant to recreate a TV sketch she did with Franken in 1996.

“Al and I did a comedic sketch for Bill Maher’s ‘Politically Incorrect’ called ‘Strange Bedfellows,’ in which the whole point, as the name makes clear, was that we were doing political commentary from bed. This shoot was looking back at the sketch, and we were obviously hamming it up for comedic effect," Huffington wrote.

“I’ve been great friends with Al and his wife Franni for over 20 years and there has never been anything remotely inappropriate in our interactions,” she continued.

Huffington's statement challenges the account of a source who described to the Post that Franken's actions that day were inappropriate.

CBS This Morning reported the story about Rose as a regular story today. Then the co-hosts, Gayle and Norah, gave personal statements.

Terrible article as it does not include the photos in question.

I am in love with Norah - she probably has some horrific personal stories of harassment throughout her many years on TV. Wonder if Rose ever harassed her... she didn't say she was surprised like Gayle did.

Those are obviously staged.

I know. There might be something to the theory that Roger Stone is trying to smear Franken in an attempt to distract from Roy Moore.

“Franken was clowning around, but it really isn’t funny,” said a source from the shoot. “That’s his tactic, pretend like it’s all a big joke. Arianna was pushing his hands away. He was groping her. There was some fun attached to it, but she wasn’t enjoying it. She definitely told him to stop and pushed him away.”
