The fall out from the Harvey Weinstein trial continued as jurors resist media pressure to tell their stories.
In a shock move, one TV company has tracked down the Zimmer frame used by Harvey Weinstein who has finally broken ranks, cracked and brought charges against the former film producer and convicted rapist. At first, people thought Harvey’s Zimmer was a comedy twitter handle but she’s actually a supple, double-jointed mime artist known as Betty from the Bronx.
Weinstein went from one of the most influential and powerful producers in Hollywood to an apparent sick and frail elderly wreck, unable to walk into his Manhattan courtroom.
“I was used and abused then dumped for a newer, trendier, younger, model,” explained Betty, at her press conference. Betty, Harvey’s older original metal zimmer frame was the star attraction and the main focus each day, outside the courthouse.
Many believe Weinstein continued to manipulate and control the case, particularly with his mobility issues.
The experienced former movie mogul watched the rushes after the first few days and suddenly Betty was out, unceremoniously dumped, discarded and left to rust in a back lane just off the streets behind the court. Betty managed to make it to the safety of a nearby accident and emergency ward. Then let Weinstein have it. “No, I’m not having this”, exploded Betty the Zimmer frame. “I’ve been loyal, stood by him at his lowest ebb…he was such a creep, imagine that man bent over you, hanging between your legs like that? Then his hands were everywhere…”
In a high-profile case such as the Weinstein trial, an entire media industry has developed around gaining exclusive access to key jurors.
Betty, most controversially, left her best till last and let rip over what many had suspected for weeks. Weinstein has nothing wrong with him and used the frame and then the newer sexier walker, to garner some sympathy. “I can reveal every night when he came he jumped on the treadmill, ran 10K and weirdly, became obsessed with soccer. So much so in fact, that he used to run about the house every night with a ball and take free kicks using the sofa like a wall, in new football boots: Adidas Predators.”
