I have a friend in Hollywood who creates costumes for touring bands. Since he's on the inside he knows who is into what and believe me it's a big culture of one-upmanship. I think sexual harrassment is almost g-rated compared to some of the stories I've heard about big stars and their fetishes. If I ever get really desperate he said if I can produce an 18 wheeler he can produce big Hollywood stars and execs with money coming out of their ears who would gladly drop $10K to $25K for a good time with a real trucker. Heck they spend $5K on an escort to come to their motel room -- every weekend. Oh wait that's Vegas. But the same thing -- just stratospheric wealth.

I was really glad that Hillary came out with a stern statement. Such a change from calling Monica "a Narcissistic loony toon" or Gennifer Flowers "a failed cabaret singer without much of a resume." Baby steps.

Just because she blew the president doesn't mean she wasn't a narcissistic looney tune. And that description of Jennifer Flowers seems spot on as well.

It's not the acts themselves. it's the character assassination that follows. No one deserves that. Especially when it's not true.

I'm bothered by the coverage, at least in part.

I was watching "The Five" this afternoon (at least, it was on while I was working), and it struck me how Weinstein was the lead story, yet they were talking over each other to be funny.

It's not funny.

Just remember the GOP and conservatives did not start this journey down this path. If and when the stories get told it will be a massacre.

The flashlight can point in many different directions.

Hollywood has always been a den of vipers. Might be time to clean things up a bit.
