Sadly, I'm not really shocked by all of this. I don't think anyone really could be, unless they're hopelessly naive.

One thing that has shocked me though is the incredibly offensive remarks made by Donna Karan. Victim shaming of the highest degree. My jaw literally dropped when I read what she had said.

Wow. As if he isn't already disgusting enough, that "please don't fire me" letter he sent made him even MORE pathetic.

In addition to discussions happening in the Status Updates section, there's already another Topic Thread that was started in the Movies and Music Section.

 

This, in addition to your other post, has me convinced people don't even check first before starting a thread.

Should we ask the mods to merge the two threads?  Alrighty then.  Mods, would you please?

 

I'll say this much and then move on:

 

To the right-wingers out there who, at the moment, are expressing outrage, disdain and ESPECIALLY moral superiority over this turn of events, would you please have not just a seat, but the whole damn sofa?  Because, to be perfect and frank, you forfeited your right to say boo about Weinstein and his ilk the moment you heard about and/or saw the evidence that cast you-know-who as a p***y-grabbing sexual predator and then said, "Nah, I'd still like him to be my president."

WIN.

You know what would have been TRULY awesome, though?  If the majority of the Weinstein Company's board of directors had been female.  Just imagine Harvey having to beg a group of women to keep his job.  LOL!!

This Harvey Weinstein stuff is disgusting. Its far worse then Trumps !@#$%^&*] grabbing tape which imo was pure liberal.hysteria. its been crickets from celebs about this. Talk about a complete double standard. Why did it take Hilary days to comment on it and its been a cover up for years. These actresses coming out 20 years later like Gwenyth Paltrow who during her oscar win praised the ground Harvey walked on. Jed Bila called this a huge double standard on her twitter.

Hoping the two threads will be merged but I've decided to post this here.

 

'I had to defend myself': the night Harvey Weinstein jumped on me Léa Seydoux 

 

Just a question, but was there a separate thread for Roger Ailes or for Donald Trump when women spoke out against them?

I'm genuinely asking because I don't remember.

Not to mention Roger Ailes who had an entire newschannel and company filled with women who were routinely harassed.  He was also in a position of power and could punish and promote at will. He also greatly abused his power.

 

This thread really should be moved to the Movies and Music Section.

    • Hahahahaha!!! You did not!!!   Good to hear you are well, Vee.   Looks like I'll be forced to work partially for Shot 2 Day. Those will be cameo appearances and no lie...sick or not I will be a bitch. Moreso since a day delay is better than what the actual post office is doing with people's mail currently in our area (though it has thankfully started to go back to notice post-He Who Shall Not Be Named).
    • It's a strange thing to bring up 40 years later lol.  There has to be more to the story.  Maybe he didn't get paid, but GH's use of it helped it become popular, therefore helped record sales.  Idk, it seems like the actual use of it on GH and the popularity and eventual record sales would be worth more than royalties from a soap opera?  I guess ideally he'd get both, but GH certainly doesn't have the money to pay him now lol
    • Yep - and that’s when the ratings really started falling off. The episodes during the latter half of the dream season were frequently  no longer even in the top 15.   Ratings had even started to decline a bit at the end of the previous season (1984-85). How many more times could you break up/reunite the couples, or have the Ewings fighting for Ewing Oil? Bobby’s death was a chance to reinvent the show. But the new writers/producers blew it. And Lorimar and the network were more than happy to go back to the tried and true for the 1986-87 season. But the gas in that tank was almost gone. After one decent season following Bobby’s return, the quality of the show plummeted.   The finale was another missed opportunity - in this case, to wrap things up nicely and go out strongly. CBS still hadn’t officially cancelled it when production started on the final episode. Hagman was still hoping for another season. So they designed an episode which would bring back old characters, but not force the writers to explain where the returnees disappeared to in case of another season. So we got another dream. Ugh. Victoria Principal said at the time she was willing to return to put a “coda” on her stint as Pam, but she didn’t want to be part of another cliffhanger. We could have had a great reunion for Bobby and Pam had the production company been willing to make the call on the series ending.
    • It's very unfortunate that there was so much complaining and whining about the format. I often think that soap fans have no foresight in terms of what can happen down the road. Neither AMC nor OLTL were "my shows" (I grew up watching CBS soaps, for the most part) but I was eager to watch these shows, thinking that perhaps the show of support would encourage other producers to want to 'dust off' other cancelled soaps and revive them, on a less ratings-focused platform, where they could get a little more time to build and grow. Yes, Prospect Park was a mess, but there might have other production companies who might have gotten the impetus to join the trend, and they might not have been a mess. Who knows? And all those people saying "I would've watched if it had been streaming on Netflix". Well, Netflix cancels shows the fastest of all the major streamers, so there was no guarantee that these reboots would have been renewed. Hulu was hardly the hinterlands of streaming platforms. I wish that fans of these shows would take the time to think and ponder the possibility that a genre that skews as old as daytime soaps might not get another chance to see another soap stream anywhere other than in bootleg clips and episodes of varying degrees of quality now because there was so much moaning and whining on previous efforts.         And you're right, House Of Cards was extremely popular, so there obviously was a mainstream audience watching dramas on streaming platforms.   As The World Turns fans keep talking about when AOL provided a streaming platform for that show's episodes but I guess that was seen as acceptable since ATWT was still airing on a terrestrial broadcast platform, rather than solely in cyberspace?   It would be nice to see a day when ATWT, GL, etc. could be streamed on Paramount+ but we'd only get soap opera die-hard fans complaining about the shows not airing in their regular T.V. time-slots.
    • Exactly why the others were annoyed at Kandi...decades in the entertainment and she can go DIRECTLY to the head (in this instance NBCUniversal...Bravo's boss) and make some changes. I could see Porsha feeling a kinda way about it since she's been doing good herself with her new RHOA contract, her now contract with that ent agency, hosting BRAVO CHATROOM, protesting, getting articles in the NY Times, etc. But...she has not been around long enough to do what Kandi did. Heck, I finally was able to read that Voices of Bravo article from a few pages back and did not even realize that Kandi reached out to NENE about this as well. In the middle of Nene and her lawsuit at that.    Power. To paraphrase BUFFY...Kandi got it. The other girls don't. This bothers them.    Which is what Kenya has said a few times this season as well. Married or not, if Kenya and Bolo had done something the girls would have been all over it. So when Kenya does it, they want to grab their pearls?    I agree with the antiheroine label.
