Harvey’s Girls + a Blind Item

Then there’s all this Weinstein drama, and one must give credit where credit’s due.  I’m not the biggest fan of Satchel Ronan O’Sullivan Farrow Allen Sinatra – aka Ronan Farrow.  But he did do the leg work on this piece and did the digging even without the support of a news outlet.  He went rogue (if not commando), and got people to talk.  That NBC passed on the story is yet another mystery, but Ronan’s tenacity got it to The New Yorker.  The rest is history.  That said, I have to admit something that won’t be popular – I really don’t care about any of this.  I mean, Cosby was drugging and raping people – that was interesting.  And I have enormous sympathy for anyone who is physically assaulted.  That is horrific.  But what about the story that Harvey put his hands on Gwyneth Paltrow‘s shoulders and suggested they get a massage.  Do I believe it happened?  Sure.  Does it get me excited?  Nah.  What about reports that he made advances on Angelina Jolie?  What interests me is the common thread – Brad Pitt!  I’m waiting for Jennifer Aniston to come forward with a teary testimony.

Lest there be any question, in no way am I condoning Weinstein’s behavior or excusing it on any level.  But, getting to the heart of the matter (and here’s the unpopular part) – I think there is a world of difference between rape/sexual assault and someone propositioning you in a sexual way.  It’s curious that this very week, when Pink entered the stage for her first song on Saturday Night Live, she smacked her guitarist on the ass.  Sexual assault or playful?  Intent is everything.  Scores of women are coming out saying, “Oh, I was once in an uncomfortable situation like that.”  Even a few guys are coming forward.  I think I was actually there when Terry Crews was groped!  But to all the people out there who were afraid to stand up to Harvey or anyone in a position of power, here’s what I have to say to you – sometimes it costs more to say “yes” than it does to say “no”.  And, I know from whence I speak.  Because I, Billy Masters, have been in more than one compromising position over the years.  Did it feel icky?  Yes.  Did I feel violated?  No – I felt empowered because I shot these people down.  Did taking a stand hurt me?  Perhaps – I’m sure I lost out on some opportunities.  But it would have hurt me much more to have given in.  And either way, I made a decision and I stand by it.  Period.

These days, Donna Karan has all the relevance of a baked potato.  But she’s suddenly in the news after not only defending Harvey Weinstein but also blaming the women.  She was on the red carpet of the CinéFashion Film Awards when she said, “It’s not just Harvey Weinstein.  You look at everything all over the world today and what [women] are asking by just presenting themselves the way they do.  To see it here in our own country is very difficult, but I also think, how do we display ourselves?  How do we present ourselves as women?  What are we asking?  Are we asking for it by presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality?  And what are we throwing out to our children today about how to dance and how to perform and what to wear?  How much should they show?”  She now says, “My statements were taken out of context and do not represent how I feel about the current situation concerning Harvey Weinstein.”  Except they were on a live video.  I can’t even imagine Babs will stand by her now.

Could it be there’s another “victim” whose keeping quiet?  Well, of course, there’s the wife who got where she is the same way all those other starlets did.  But when she saw what was happening around her, she threatened to leave.  And then Quasimodo had an idea – what if she had someone to satisfy her sexual needs?  She made a wish list.  Cut to that limber lad so attractive to women and men alike.  A golden boy who’s willing to bend over backwards (and forwards) to get ahead.  Suddenly he’s on the hubby’s payroll and banging the wife.  You see, he thought she’d leave Cyclops for him.  But, in actuality, it was all yet another deal.  When the mover and shaker figured it out, he threatened to go public.  And suddenly, poof, he was offered his dream role on Broadway!  And like so many whores before him, he kept his big mouth shut – even when the Broadway show was mysteriously postponed.

When you can huff and puff and blow a blind item down, it’s definitely time to end yet another column.  Of course, we’re far less circumspect on www.BillyMasters.com, the site that cannot be bought – but can be rented.  And like so many rent boys before me, you can send your requests into Billy@BillyMasters.com and I promise to get back to you before I take a vow of silence…or chastity…or any vow at all!  So, until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.
