Unlike Alyssa Milano, we'll stand with Illeana Douglas

Sunday, Kelly Kahl, CBS entertainment president, declared, "At the same time, we must respect the voices that come forward. All allegations need to be and are being taken seriously."

But are they really taking allegations seriously?

CBS has allowed Leslie Moonves to remain in his position despite all the allegations against him.  Allegations are not proof, agreed.  But if allegations are being taken seriously, then you put Leslie on vacation for the duration of the investigation.  He holds the position of Chair of the Board, CBS President and CBS CEO.  That's too much power to allow him to remain in place while an investigation is carried out.

It's for that reason that we wrote "Moonves needs to step down or take a forced vacation" last week.

That's what we did.

You'll note Alyssa Milano did nothing.  Despite pretending to be an activist.

See, she can slam Harvey Weinstein because her chance at a feature film career ended two decades ago.  She's aged out of any chance at starring in films.  But she counts on TV for a paycheck.  And she's not going to risk pissing off Leslie Moonves in case he manages to hang onto his jobs at CBS. 

Alyssa has presented herself as a leader of #MeToo but she won't say one word against Leslie Moonves or, for that matter, the agency who aided Moonves.  CAA.  Remember how we've told you repeatedly that CAA is a piece of garbage agency, that they regularly pimped out actresses.  For those who missed it, Alyssa's career hangs by a slender thread and that thread is provided by her being married to an agent for CAA.

So Alyssa a big, fat hypocrite.  A liar who pretends to care but, as Rose McGowan rightly noted, Alyssa is just "a lie."

The allegations contained in here are on the record and corroborated contemporaneously by mulitple people. The conduct alleged is not gray-area or borderline in any way: it's plain and simple harassment, assault and vicious retaliation.

Illeana Douglas bravely came forward to publicly tell her truth.  We believe Illeana.  C.I. heard the story of what happened to Illeana years ago from Martin Scorsese.  Many people heard what happened years ago.  Illeana told her truth.

  2. The allegations against Moonves took place as recently as the late 2000s. They include two cases in which women said they were pinned down and struggled to get away from Moonves, including this story from Illeana Douglas:

  1. Part of Les Moonves's case relies on our believing that Illeana Douglas was fired by CBS because of bad acting. Better hope the jury hasn't seen Cape Fear, To Die For, or Goodfellas

  1. 'Goodfellas' actress Illeana Douglas says she was fired from sitcom for refusing to have sex with CBS chief Les Moonves What happened to me was a sexual assault, and then I was fired for not participating, she told the NYdailynews
  2. “Six Feet Under” actress Illeana Douglas is one of six women accusing CBS CEO Leslie Moonves of sexual misconduct
  3. Statement from Illeana Douglas.
  4. Replying to   
    . as someone who first heard Illeana Douglas' story and included it in my collection of stories about being Fired, published in 2007, I can tell you that her account is not at all related to this court case. The timing is related to climate that has made it

We believe Illeana.

Unlike Alyssa Milano and other whores (Sara Gilbert, we include you on that list!), we will publicly support Illeana.  We believe her.

And all we're asking for is a real investigation.  A real investigation is not going to take place while Leslie Moonves overseas CBS.  Forced vacation or step down, those should be the choices.  Anything else and CBS is making a mockery of any woman who comes forward to tell her truth.
