Lainey and I both knew we would have a hard time holding on through the whole hiatus. We talked all the time about what we would talk about on the podcast when we brought it back.

But we couldn’t have predicted it would be for this.

As the Harvey Weinstein disaster unleashed over the last few days, there were two questions that seemed super-pressing – or at least that kept coming up over and over again.

“How did this happen?”


“What’s going to happen now? To him? To Hollywood?”

We tried to answer a little of both, to paint a picture around the world where this happened and to point out all the ways that it’s both completely similar to and different from a hundred of these stories we’ve heard before.

Hit us up @laineygossip and @duanaelise - with your thoughts, your emails, and your notes – we want to know what you think, what you disagree with, and what to put on our list when Season 2 begins!
