Yesterday the Times published a story about the book including some new tidbits about attorney Lisa Bloom who represented Harvey Weinstein for a time.

"If you think nothing is wrong with your misbehavior so in this area then announce it to your wife and family", Bob Weinstein wrote in the memo.

In one more memo excerpted within the book, Bloom knowledgeable Weinstein: "It's most practical to tranquil be the hero of the account, no longer the villain".

In an interview for the book, the crusader against sexual harassment and assault defended using confidential settlements, saying clients aren't forced to sign them and sometimes prefer them for privacy reasons.

Bloom later told Kantor and Twohey she "deeply regretted" representing Weinstein and called the endeavor a "colossal mistake".

The downfall of Weinstein galvanized the #MeToo movement in Hollywood that encouraged women to come forward about the predatory behavior of powerful men, including Kevin Spacey, former Pixar chief John Lasseter, Brett Ratner and Louis C.K. Weinstein is facing a criminal trial on charges of rape and sexual assault.

Kantor said that "everybody was scared to go on the record" and that at one point in their reporting, only a former Weinstein assistant was willing to be named, but no actresses. "I rise in the name of those who've been programmed to hate me and other truth tellers".

In accordance with the brand new book, Bloom and Weinstein visited the New York Cases the day sooner than the preliminary article changed into as soon as revealed in 2017.

High-profile victims' rights attorney Lisa Bloom once offered to plant disparaging stories about Rose McGowan in order to discredit the actress' sexual assault accusation against Harvey Weinstein, according to a new book.

"We can place an article re her becoming increasingly unglued", Bloom wrote about McGowan.

"I was able to say to Gwyneth, "I always anxious about you"... and Gwyneth was able to say to me, 'I was cheering for you, I knew that you were going to be the one to tell the story, ' and I'm so glad I did", Judd said. She recalls that Weinstein once attempted to pull her into bed with him.
