Yet ANOTHER Hollywood Scandal. Jeremy Piven Accused of Inappropriate Behavior...
E tu, Droz? I know most people relate Jeremy Piven to playing Ari Gold from Entourage, but he'll always be PCU to me. Also, the best friend in Serendipity if you're looking for a good romcom, but none of that is important right now.
What is important are the accusations being made by actress Ariane Bellamar. Who, took a break from tweeting about the Mueller indictments today to make the following charge against the actor.

This, coming off of yesterday's explosive allegations about Kevin Spacey.
Now, I do think we need to slow down a little bit because we may be getting a little I SAW GOODY PIVEN FONDLE THE DEVIL as of late. We've written a lot about the importance of due process, especially when it comes to college kids. Actors, as morally repugnant and hypocritical as they are, still deserve due process, and the only thing to the story right now is the actress' claim.
But, having said that, these claims aren't surprising in the slightest. In fact, copping an unwanted feel is quite tame compared to the tales of Harvey Weinstein getting his rape on and impregnating potted plants. We're not saying Jeremy Piven for sure did these things. Just that they're well within the realm of belief.
The rub here is we're still just at the tip of the rapey iceberg. There's a reason why so many people call this the worst kept secret in Hollywood. For years, Tinseltown elitists made like they were morally superior to everyone in the U-S-of-A. Now, that facade is crumbling fast.
When people started tweeting #MeToo, some responded that they should start naming names, or shut up.
Well, people are naming names. now.
