It was unveiled like the curtains pulled back like a scene out of a movie out of a movie out of a movie. Journalist Ronan Farrow blew the lid off a covert operation orchestrated by perverted, disgraced Hollywood exec, Harvey Weinstein.
They say the devil was once an angel that fell from grace.
Well “Rosemary”’s (real-life) baby (Ronan Farrow) reversed roles and angelicly brought out the devil in the details behind Hollywood’s demonized head honcho [now disgraced and fallen from grace]: Harvey Weinstein.
The fall television season debuted nothing shorter than Oscar-worthy itself, as the world outside of Hollywood learned that for even as long as 20+ years, starlets, leading (and men) had been snubbed in ways never imagined always imagined about the life behind all the wins.
To this very date the unraveling continues. Spillage incessantly pours from brave women and men stepping forward to finally tell tales of unwanted advances at the hands of some of Hollywood’s most revered—and feared.
For far too long, victims dared not tell the tales-knowing all too well they may will not ever “work in this town again.”
To add insult to injury, over standing up to being held accountable for simply what it was (sexual harassment and rape), the most powerful one headed straight for the hills of “sexual addiction” treatment.
Perversely, the other copped to coming out ‘in exchange’ for being brought out.
But nothing was brought out better than “Rosemary”’s Mia Farrow’s real-life ‘baby’ himself exposing what was obviously meant to be left on the cutting room and swept away.
Moving in for the kill like an infiltration of a sleuth of a drug lord’s goons equipped with full arsenal to blast character assassination and credibility, the Weinstein machine was found out to have been climbing the walls of the lives and his accusers and the journalists who reported him.
In The New Yorker yesterday, journalist Ronan Farrow told the tale that tells like that movie from a movie from a movie from a movie–worthy of a full feature spread atop the the ToriSpilling spiels and spills. And well here is that the tea, spilled:
Harvey Weinstein’s Army of Spies
The film executive hired private investigators, including ex-Mossad agents, to track actresses and journalists.
In the fall of 2016, Harvey Weinstein set out to suppress allegations that he had sexually harassed or assaulted numerous women. He began to hire private security agencies to collect information on the women and the journalists trying to expose the allegations. According to dozens of pages of documents, and seven people directly involved in the effort, the firms that Weinstein hired included Kroll, which is one of the world’s largest corporate-intelligence companies, and Black Cube, an enterprise run largely by former officers of Mossad and other Israeli intelligence agencies. Black Cube, which has branches in Tel Aviv, London, and Paris, offers its clients the skills of operatives “highly experienced and trained in Israel’s elite military and governmental intelligence units,” according to its literature.
