This makes a lot of sense if you think about it. These two women have a lot in common. They’re both the wives of men who fell from powerful positions in the Democratic Party because of sex scandals.
The New York Post reports:
Harvey Weinstein’s wife is leaning on Huma Abedin
Harvey Weinstein’s estranged wife, Georgina Chapman, is leaning on fellow scorned spouse Huma Abedin after announcing that she is leaving the movie mogul.
A well-placed source tells Page Six that Marchesa co-founder Chapman reached out to Abedin, the soon-to-be ex-wife of convicted sex offender Anthony Weiner, as the scandal engulfing her movie-mogul husband intensified and more women — including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow — came forward with allegations that Weinstein had sexually assaulted or harassed them.
Chapman and Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s top aide, have known each other for some time because of Weinstein’s numerous fundraising events for the former presidential hopeful. Plus, the Clintons rented a Hamptons house next door to Weinstein and Chapman’s Amagansett estate for three summers.
A source close to Chapman said, “One of the people Georgina has reached out to is Huma, who has been through this kind of scandal and media storm, and survived with her dignity intact. They are both mothers, they have both been in a situation where their husbands turned out to be a different person than the man they thought they knew.”
If these two can give each other some help, more power to them.
