The Not-So-“Quiet” Bob Weinstein: Did Harvey Weinstein’s Brother Want Him Out of the Hollywood Empire They Built Together?

In a week’s time, Harvey Weinstein‘s already tenuous grasp on his place in the Hollywood hierarchy has unraveled completely.

He’s been fired from his own namesake company, which is reportedly planning on changing its name in an attempt at distancing itself from its tarnished co-founder. His wife, Marchesa co-founder Georgina Chapman, is leaving him. And now New York police and reportedly London’s Scotland Yard are investigating the disgraced mogul.

The tentacles of this grotesquerie—which have already reached beyond Hollywood and into the worlds of politics and deep-pocketed philanthropy that Weinstein also circulated in—continue to suck in one bold-faced name after another. But even within the first few moments after the New York Times‘ investigative report on decades’ worth of accusations of sexual misconduct and harassment was published last Thursday, the common denominator had revealed itself: Harvey Weinstein’s alleged pattern of mistreating women was what you call an “open secret,” a tacitly acknowledged cost of doing business with one of the most powerful figures in show business.
