"Harvey Weinstein’s wife is leaning on Huma Abedin."

Does that work? Huma seems incredibly unleanable on.

But I'd love to blog a transcript of their conversation.

Laslo, pick up the phone!

I do not relish the predicament of Mr. Weinstein, er, Mr. Weiner.

traditionalguy said...

Huma brought in implies that the Wife role she played was a supporting actress who was
in on all the Sex Fun with powerless young women being auditioned. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Joe Veenstra said...

His estranged wife is gorgeous and an excellent fashion designer. I know he had a lot of money but I don't think she needed him and would be shocked if she knew anything or at least the extent of it.

"Look, I get it. I know how former lovers can have a hold over you long after they're gone. In some ways I'm still pinned under a passed-out Harvey Weinstein and it's Thanksgiving."

This is described as a dark joke instead of hilarious.

AlbertAnonymous said...

Oh please. She didn’t know? Give me a break.

She knew what was going on; chose not to believe it, or just look the other way. But she knew.

Bay Area Guy said...

I do not relish the predicament of the potted plant community of the greater tri-borough area as well.

isthmus legend said...

Weinstein and Weiner should open a rehab clinic together, in Israel, as soon as Weinstein returns from the Philippians and Weiner gets out of jail.

On that note... Queue the Weiner jokes!

rhhardin said...

Klavan says you want an overseas rehab clinic so that Hollywood reporters don't enroll there undercover.

rhhardin said...

Weinstein should call a press conference and have a portable shower up there on stage beforehand.

Or to make it harder to get whacked. HW is now, I would say, more valuable dead than alive to a lot of people.

Henry said...

Weinstein, your name is Weiner.

mccullough said...

Smart if her to tell Huma the Clintons better take care of her or else she'll write a tell all about Harvey and the Clintons and others. Let the bidding begin

Yours was small and diseased, said one of the gang of convicts who cut it off and fed it to you while you were in the pen for child molestation.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!! Thanks, I needed that.

rhhardin said...

Weinstein should change his name to Wienstein and join a witness protection program.

mockturtle said...

Wake me when it's over.

David said...

Huma is selective in whom she allows to lean on her. But she certainly was leanable for Hillary Clinton. Mysteriously so, but leanable nevertheless.

Darrell said...

Weinstein went to Arizona. The same clinic Tiger Woods checked into.

Darrell said...

Weinstein's wife probably listed the other women in her pre-nuptial agreement. Better he fuck around with them.

Bob Boyd said...

"Huma seems incredibly unleanable on."

Seems like that should be unleanonable.

tcrosse said...

If there were only some way we could work OJ into this, now that he's a free man.

Henry said...

You know, Tiger comes out of this looking pretty good. Relatively.

Henry said...

Huma can only buy so many clothes. HWW will need to network.

Ralph L said...

Huma is thin because Hillary leaned on her.

Sebastian said...

The feminist dilemma in a nutshell: lean in or lean on?

Earnest Prole said...

Seems thin but actually thicc AF from the waist down.

Bay Area Guy said...

Weinstein went to Arizona. The same clinic Tiger Woods checked into.

What precisely is the clinical treatment for rich, Hollywood moguls who wack off in potted plants?

I don't know, but it costs a lot of money.

"Smart if her to tell Huma the Clintons better take care of her or else she'll write a tell all about Harvey and the Clintons and others. Let the bidding begin"

This is what Mrs. Weinstein and Huma really have in common. The ability to stick it to the Clintons. Leveraging it might require some teamwork.

wildswan said...

I hope Huma said: "Divorce him now, though he's the father of your children. Don't 'work on your marriage.' It's hopeless. He won't change. But it can get worse for you." But probably only Laslo can imagine what was actually said.

PS. Anybody else notice how Laslo is beginning to seem like a reporter simply reporting dialogue and facts. If NBC calls, don't go there, Laslo.

Jesus! He's here! Better lock up the women, girls, and sheep!

Ann Althouse said...

Georgina has a brand that will go to hell if she doesn’t get separation from Harvey. Harvey will lose all he has in lawsuits, I predict. This woman needs to protect her wealth along with her dignity.

rehajm said...

She should lean on Rose Marie, who is 1) still with us and 2) been working in show business since she was three.

Laslo Spatula said...

"Harvey, it's me, Roman. Roman Polanski."

"Hello, Roman. What brings you to call...?"

"I have been reading the internets, and Iunderstand what you are going through, Harvey. I just wanted to let you know you can lean on me if you need to."

"Uh, thanks, Roman, but I think our situations are different..."

"What is the different? I sleep with the girls, you sleep with the girls..."

"Roman, you had sex with children. I had sex with adults -- adults who could make their own decisions."

"Tomato Tomato."

"Excuse me?"

"Tomato Tomato: I say tomato, you say tomato."

"The expression is 'To-MAY-toe To-MAH-toe', Roman. The point is they sound different."

"That makes no sense, Harvey. All I know is we like to make love to the tomatoes, you know what I mean?"

"Well, I appreciate your offer, Roman, but I think I'll take care of this on my own..."

"You should come to Europe, Harvey. In Europe the people aren't so uptight about men and their tomatoes."

"That IS a thought..."

"Yes! In Europe there are many girls, you buy them wine, they eat your asshole, no one minds."

"Maybe a chance of place would help..."

"And you can stay at my place, Harvey. There is plenty of room, and it is across the street from an Elementary School...!"

I am Laslo.

Gahrie said...

This woman needs to protect her wealth along with her dignity.

Sooo much more important than honoring her marriage vows and attempting to save her marriage.

gspencer said...

Nothing says that your head ain't screwed on right if your leaning / depending upon a woman raised in a Muslim culture.

And nothing says that your head ain't screwed on right if you married good old Harvey in the first place.

fivewheels said...

I read both the headline and the comment as meaning she was "leaning on" Huma as in pressing her to do something, the way a mob boss leans on you. Was curious what she wanted her to do.

tim in vermont said...

Weinstein should call a press conference and have a portable shower up there on stage beforehand.

Sort of like this?

tim in vermont said...

Right to the Clinton insiders... What a surprise. There is a cancer full grown on the Democratic Party and it needs to be cut out.

Bay Area Guy said...

AA sez:

Georgina has a brand that will go to hell if she doesn’t get separation from Harvey. Harvey will lose all he has in lawsuits, I predict. This woman needs to protect her wealth along with her dignity.

True, but with one huge caveat. Did Georgina know about or enable Harvey to do all these sexual assaults? Did she try to squelch them after the fact?

She must have known about the settlements. True, marital privilege might protect her legally from disclosing some ugly confrontations with Harvey.

But, if you had to predict, you think this was a surprise to her?

And, if not, she has no dignity to protect. She married an aging rapist.

MayBee said...

One problem for Georgina is she dressed a lot of Harvey's actresses. Appearing in one of Harvey's films? Wear one of Georgina's gowns on the red carpet!

walter said...

Cool. They can go shopping..for divorce pants.

MayBee said...

Leaning on Huma makes it all very very political, don't you think?

Bay Area Guy said...

Appearing in one of Harvey's films? Wear one of Georgina's gowns on the red carpet!

Well, shiver me timbers! You mean marrying a 25 year older, fat, Hollywood executive wasn't true love?

Tsk, tsk, Georgina -- you were depriving your fellow sistah fashion designers of making an honest buck........

walter said...

Bay Area Guy said...She married an aging rapist.

Right. Hilary would have more experience in this territory...though a dangerous lean.

Kevin said...

HUMA: Hillary wants to arrange a meeting. Says we can straighten any of our problems out.

HARVEY: She talked to you?

HUMA: (nods) I can arrange security.

tcrosse said...

Poor Georgina. Poor Huma.
Cry me an underground river of boiling wine.
