There are even the stories/rumours about Droz having date raped many women while working for the WWE and, allegedly having had been dealt with by John Bradshaw Layfield in the shower with a rape of his own… Yet, we have a much simpler scenario that may be very well be true that is just as potent as any of the others.

Harvey Weinstein Gang Try To Walk Back Sex For Jobs Interview; Journo Says “May” Have Gotten Quote Wrong – Update
Update, 11:41 Am: In a PR face plant of a team that clearly can’t spin straight, Harvey Weinstein’s lawyer and the columnist who claimed the disgraced producer said he offered movie roles for sex are now desperately trying to put out the blaze from the damning quote.

“I was present for the conversation; it was not an interview, but a social meeting between old friends,” Benjamin Brafman said in a statement this morning after Deadline reported on the Spectator piece. “Harvey and Taki did not discuss the case, nor would I allow him to. We talked about old Hollywood and the contrast to European culture, and I think Taki sees Harvey in that older light. Mr. Weinstein never said anything about trading movie roles for sexual favors. You have my word that Harvey did not say that.”

Anthony Bourdain Estate Valued at $1.2 Million
Less than a month after Anthony Bourdain’s death, the TV personality’s estate has been valued at around $1.2 million. Court papers have confirmed that most of his assets have been bequeathed to his 11-year-old daughter, Ariane. The “Parts Unknown” host died by suicide in early June.

Bourdain’s estranged wife, Ottavia Busia-Bourdain, will serve as executor of his estate, as well as inherit “personal and household effects,” including cars and frequent flier miles, to use “in accordance with what (she) believes to have been my wishes.”

Adam Carolla Defends Chris Hardwick: ‘A Gentle Soul of a Guy’ (Audio)
Adam Carolla became one of the first celebrities to defend Chris Hardwick.

It happened on Wednesday when a discussion with columnist Aj Benza on Carolla’s podcast, “The Adam Carolla” show, turned toward the recent accusations posed against the Nerdist co-founder, who has appeared on Carolla’s show in the past. Carolla referred to Hardwick as a “gentle soul of a guy.”

Hardwick, a king in the geek media industry, was dealt a significant blow after actress and former Nerdist host Chloe Dykstra posted a Medium essay last week, accusing her ex-boyfriend of “sexual assault,” “controlling behavior” and career sabotage after their breakup.

Hardwick denied Dkystra’s sexual assault accusations in a statement the following day.

“First off, he’s a gentle soul of a guy,” Carolla said after acknowledging that people have been approaching him with questions about Hardwick. “Chris has always been a very thoughtful, sort of just gentle guy.
