In an interview with HuffPost, Tamron Hall says that she directly confronted Harvey Weinstein about his sexual assault and rape allegations.
She called the claims “horrifying” and said went on to say that, “It’s a woman’s worst nightmare to be in a situation where you believe someone more powerful has control over your life. I immediately thought about the women who have suffered in silence and were paralyzed by fear; fear that I’ve seen with domestic violence survivors; fear that I’ve seen when I interviewed women who were raped on their college campuses.”
Hall says she directly called Weinstein at 5 a.m. after seeing the bombshell New York Times article. HuffPost article reads: ” While Weinstein never behaved inappropriately with her, Hall said the only thing that matters is what he has admitted to doing and what his women accusers have said. She described her approach to Weinstein in the call as one of ‘take no prisoners.’ And while Weinstein apologized to her and told her he needed help, Hall is now working with her agents to figure out next steps on a talk show development deal she signed with The Weinstein Co. three months ago.”
In July, we reported that Hall announced she was partnering with Weinstein Television for a new daytime talk show. The show, which would have been created and produced by Hall and taped in front of a live studio audience, would have featured “a mix of current events, human-interest stories and in-depth celebrity and newsmaker interviews.”
