McGowan selling house to fund fight against Weinstein

McGowan selling house to fund fight against Weinstein

The trailer for Rose McGowan's upcoming docuseries has arrived.

"I wish I had more middle fingers", she says with a smile in one excerpt.

She said: 'My platform is quite separate from #MeToo.

What does she hope to accomplish with the new series?

Her accusations of rape against Harvey Weinstein go back almost twenty years, and she's been remarkably courageous speaking out over the past few months despite legal barriers. The actress further elaborated that she lost a deal with Amazon Studios when she made a complaint about it and her former fiance, Robert Rodriguez, used the information against her.

The actress-turned-activist spoke to TV critics Tuesday about her new documentary series "Citizen Rose" and what she called her global fight against sexual misconduct and injustice.

McGowan, 44, best known for her role in TV's Charmed, will star in Citizen Rose, an E! documentary series that begins with a two-hour special January 30 (8 ET/PT).

The Little-Known Congressional Procedure That Could Save Net Neutrality
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced he was leading a multistate lawsuit to halt the new net neutrality rules. In December, the FCC voted along party lines to overturn the net neutrality rules established during the Obama administration.

However, my hope is that this show will be larger than Rose McGowan, and that she will use it to highlight and showcase women from different walks of life. Harvey Weinstein denies all the allegations against him.

While she's been happy to see a shift in the coverage post-Weinstein, she pointed to a need for continued progress. Thank you for participating in the TCAs. I wasn't asked either but who cares! So please be respectful and understand this is a very hard and traumatic thing.

"I knew others were out there and I knew it was a lot of us", McGowan continues. McGowan answered, "No, we're not there yet".

"My brand is raw and it's true and it's my truth", she said. "It's not an accident that I'm sitting here and I earned it". I have fought. I have clawed. "And I've been doing it strategically, so I could be here". "I really like the people at E!". "And they never came", she told press.

How McGowan feels about the Time's Up movement was another matter she wasn't entirely clear on. "There is no way the media would ever give this much coverage to these activists". She has accused Meryl Streep of being hypocritical and she resented having her name added to the #TimesUp manifesto. Reports suggested she signed a nondisclosure agreement as part of her settlement with the disgraced movie mogul for $100,000 to not talk about their 1997 hotel room encounter during the Sundance Film Festival. "Don't create something that's not there", she said. But she felt it was important for the show to represent her reality as closely as possible. This is my form of volunteer work...

The series explores the still-unsolved murders of the hip hop musical giants Shakur and Wallace, also known as The Notorious B.I.G. "Citizen Rose is not just a show about women". It's about humanity, it's about freeing your mind...

During the panel, McGowan spoke passionately to reporters about the ways in which "your peers - a lot of them" have misrepresented her in the press, also noting that while E! has recently come under fire for pay disparity between its male and female talent, "if you're a male reporter doing the same job as a woman, I nearly guarantee you you're being paid more".
