thr’s answer to the september issue: a glammed-up style section for fall

A good issue of The Hollywood Reporter delivers two types of stories: the business articles you need to read and the fun pieces you want to read. Much of that fun stuff lives in the Style section, our insider’s guide to living, traveling, dressing, dining and driving (electric, if possible) — all through the prism of Hollywood. This fall, we’re beefing up the section, overseen by deputy editor Jeanie Pyun, adding more real estate coverage, a new monthly dining review, vivid photo-driven features and, on the website, a new video series, Hollywood Style Clinic, starring contributing editor Andrew Weitz. Andrew is a former WME agent turned executive style consultant (full disclosure: He’s picked out clothes for me) who brings a unique perspective to dressing for the red carpet and beyond. Check…

Author Peter Biskind ponders how pop culture played into Donald Trump’s election victory in his new book, The Sky Is Falling: How Vampires, Zombies, Androids, and Superheroes Made America Great for Extremism, excerpted on page 82. Author of the best-selling memoir Primates of Park Avenue, Wednesday Martin writes about how outdated views on female sexuality have been corrected by shows like HBO’s Insecure (page 42). Her new book, Untrue, looks at myths of lust and infidelity. Showbiz power lawyer Ken Ziffren pens an analysis of Disney’s much-anticipated “Netflix killer” (page 67). He calls the streaming service, set to debut in late 2019, a “radical change” from wholesale production and distribution to a direct-to-consumer system.…

how les sabotaged my career

Guest Column This is not the article you might be expecting about Les Moonves. It’s not going to be wise or inspiring. It’s going to be petty and punishing. In spite of my proper Southern mother’s admonition to always be gracious, I am all out of grace when it comes to Mr. Moonves. In fact, like a lot of women in Hollywood, I am happy to dance on his professional grave. And not just any dance — this will be the Macarena, the rumba, the cha-cha and the moonwalk. You get the idea. I was never sexually harassed or attacked by Les Moonves. My encounters were much more subtle, engendering a different kind of destruction. In 1992, I was given the largest writing and producing contact in the history of CBS. It…

is shari’s wedding back on?

If you were to ask a Wall Street analyst a year ago what would happen to shares of CBS Corp. if suddenly Leslie Moonves were to leave, you’d likely hear that the stock would tank because of his value as the CEO who took a slow-growth, old-media TV company and turned it into a cool investment again — one that has returned 1,200 percent since bottoming out nine years ago. But Sept. 10, the first trading day after Moonves was officially ousted after a second group of women accused him of sexual abuse, the stock fell just 21 cents to $54.99, raising the question: What are investors thinking? Mostly they’re convinced CBS will merge with a larger company that will pay a premium to the current price, though that may be wishful…
