Joanna Krupa: Some Women Are 'Taking Advantage' of the Harvey Weinstein Scandal


UPDATE (10/31, 9:30 p.m. EST): Jeremy Piven has released the following statement to Deadline: "I unequivocally deny the appalling allegations being peddled about me".

HBO also issued a statement Tuesday: "Today, via the press reports, is the first we are hearing about Ariane Bellamar's allegations concerning Jeremy Piven. I've known Jeremy Piven for a very long time, he's like, the nicest f-king guy I've ever met", she told The Blast.

The "Real Housewives" star is more than suspicious of some of the claims that have come out over the past few weeks and she thinks some women are taking of the Weinstein scandal to make a name for themselves.

"She later said, "'Member when I tried to leave; you grabbed me by the a**, looked at yourself in the mirror, & said what a "beautiful couple" we made?"

One of those alleged assaults took place on the set of the hit HBO show Entourage, where Piven played Hollywood superagent Ari Gold.
