Harvey Weinstein Update: 'Real Housewives' Cast Members Speak Out [VIDEO]
A couple of Real Housewives stars are weighing in on the ongoing sexual assault scandal revolving around Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
Earlier this week, after a number of women made claims against Weistein, some of whom alleged they had been raped, Bethenny Frankel of The Real Housewives of New York City shared a couple of tweets regarding her thoughts on the issue.
Harvey is & was a beast. If I had $1 for every person in "the biz" that pretends they didn't know, I'd be richer than H before the fall.

Frankel shared her tweets with her many fans and followers on October 18.
Yup. & there are 20 names right behind him shuddering under the covers.. & they're the famous ones. What about the regular offenders? — Bethenny Frankel (@Bethenny) October 18, 2017
One day later, Joanna Krupa of The Real Housewives of Miami, which was canceled in November 2013 after just three seasons, spoke to TMZ while out in Los Angeles, revealing that she was well-aware of what was happening.
"I was actually surprised at the amount of victims that there were because ten years ago, I heard these rumors about him and literally, I just decided to stay away from meeting this person because I was warned about it multiple times," she explained. "I don't think it was a secret. I heard of it. I wasn't sure if it was true or not but I decided to not take any meetings with those sort of people."
"It's hard for me to speak for [the victims]. I just now that for me, I heard it," she continued. "I didn't know if it was true or if was a rumor. I didn't really care. I just decided that if an opportunity came to have a meeting, I wasn't interested because it wasn't a thing I'd want to put myself into."
