Harvey Weinstein, the Sir Thomas Seymour of Hollywood

 Thomas Seymour lived during the time of King Henry VIII, executed for treason trying to kidnap King Edward, Henry’s son and successor. But the other thing Tom was famous for was his inappropriate canoodling, especially with Henry’s 13 year-old daughter, who would become, Queen Elizabeth I.

I’ve been following the Harvey Weinstein case like a pretty bad mini series, waiting for his axe to fall.

I don’t claim to be the Jean Dixon of WordPress, but do think he’s going under since, there’s so much evidence against him, despite the trickeries of his lavish legal team.

Bill Cosby, who was already convicted of his hide-the-salami predilections, ironically a Woody Allen line, and facing sentencing in September, I think will be placed under eternal house arrest being in his 80s and legally blind.

But back to Harvey, whose face alone tells you he was the Bluebeard of producers, taking what he wanted while the throng of women finally, as a group, were bravely able to take him to task.

I can’t help feeling sorry for his kids, and all the kids having to carry the sins of their fathers, like Fox’s Roger Ailes’s son who was bullied in school for his dad’s public sexual indiscretions.

You have to wonder why these men, before they pounce with their flies open, don’t run the whole tape.

The hubris of feeling, I’ll never get caught plus the rules don’t apply to me, will never cease to amaze me, the Pollyanna that I am.

Thomas Seymour screamed and swore as they dragged him to the scaffold on Tower Hill. Wonder how Harvey’s going to take it when they permanently cuff him and make him exchange his Armani blazer for that polyester orange jumpsuit?

His first phone call will probably be to his tailor.      

Just a hunch.

    When caught, these degenerates are angry. Not at themselves, but at the peons who dare to question them. They simply cannot comprehend that they aren’t really untouchable.
    We all know of Henry VIII, but I never heard of good old Tom. I still say you should have been a history teacher. Well now, actually you are.

    Will this be an eternal problem? I must wonder.

    • It’s not a new problem. What’s new about it is, it’s now a public one. The casting couch is legendary. I can’t read about Marilyn Monroe because I feel so bad at the way she was passed around like cheese on a Ritz. Men have acted this way forever. I too had a couple of experiences. Anyway…these women who came forward are very brave. I remember when Paula Jones tried to out Clinton, and how they did everything to destroy her. As sordid as it is, it’s good that it’s been brought out in the open. I sound like an activist, but it’s just how I’ve always felt, quietly. Thanks for reading it. It hasn’t done very well.

        It does seem as if the women are gaining credibility (though why they shouldn’t get it automatically to begin with is a shame). Maybe men, and society can evolve, given enough time. Maybe we won’t be around long enough to see it the way we’d like it to be.

      • Well, at least this expose is a start. I do think Harvey’s going to jail. As far as men and society evolving. I think it will get worse before it gets better. It’s just so wild out there.

  6. You bring up a good point about the children. I often think of DT’s son in school, How is that working out for him? I can’t imagine it’s okay.

    • I remember reading when Kathy Griffin posted that horrible picture of a beheaded Trump, the kid was watching TV when it flashed onto the screen. He started to scream, thinking his father was dead. So,to answer your question, it must be hell. sigh
