Charlie Rose Sued By Former Makeup Artist for Sexual Harassment

Charlie Rose is facing legal trouble after he was fired from CBS over sexual harassment allegations back in 2017.

The 77-year-old former CBS and PBS host is being sued by a makeup artist who worked with him for 22 years.

She is accusing Charlie of years of unlawful behavior toward female employees including verbal abuse and making derogatory comments about her weight.

“Throughout the workday, and at work events, Mr. Rose routinely groped and pawed at his female staff, pressed himself against them, hugged them, kissed them, pulled them toward him, whispered in their ears, stared at their breasts, looked down their shirts, and otherwise subjected them to inappropriate and unwanted physical contact,” the suit alleges, according to Variety.

Charlie‘s attorney Jonathan Bach is denying the allegations.

Mr. Rose vehemently denies and will vigorously contest these allegations. Among other things, the allegations in the complaint are completely inconsistent with written statements made by the plaintiff to Mr. Rose, including ‘I love working for you at your show, and would love to be part of any show that you host,’ ‘I consider it an honor to be a member of your team,’ and ‘hope to see you more often! Please stop by any time,’” Jonathan told Variety.

Last year, three other female employees filed suit against Charlie and CBS.

Charlie Rose's 'CBS This Morning' Replacement Is John Dickerson

CBS journalist John Dickerson will officially be replacing Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning. He will join Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King on the morning show.

“John’s impressive track record and strong all-around journalism extends our commitment to real news coverage every morning at CBS News,” David Rhodes, president of CBS News said (via People). “Gayle and Norah continue to show tremendous leadership on our morning broadcast each day. Colleagues, newsmakers and peers all appreciate the depth and context John Dickerson brings to every discussion of the day’s events – together with his co-hosts, he will project our best values on every broadcast.”

John said, “On the campaign trail I’ve collected complements about CBS This Morning’s commitment to the news for years now. Every time I’ve been on the show I haven’t wanted the conversation with Norah and Gayle to end when my segment does. Now it doesn’t have to.”

Charlie was fired after sexual harassment allegations.

Gayle King Explains Why She Needed to Report Charlie Rose's Firing from 'CBS This Morning'

Gayle King makes an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night (November 21) in New York City.

The CBS This Morning co-host wrapped up a difficult day, which started with her having to report on her co-worker Charlie Rose being fired from their show amid sexual misconduct allegations from eight women.

Gayle had booked her appearance on The Late Show weeks ago to promote Oprah’s Favorite Things, but she decided not to cancel on the show.

“That’s what you have to do,” Gayle said about wanting to cancel at first. “To be honest with you, it still isn’t easy. It’s still very painful, it’s still very hurtful. Charlie and I have worked together, been friends, but when you think about the anguish of those women, despite the friendship, you still have to report the news.”

Gayle added that she was “wincing” during Stephen‘s monologue, but he said it was his job to report the story in the way he did.

“I thought about that too. It’s interesting, when you were doing the monologue about other people, I’m like, ‘Ha ha ha.’ And then it was Charlie, and I was like, ‘Oh, he’s a friend. I don’t like that, that’s difficult.’ And then I think about what these women were going through… I don’t like that either,” she added.

Charlie Rose's Co-Anchors Norah O’Donnell & Gayle King React to Sexual Misconduct Allegations

An expose published this week revealed that CBS This Morning anchor Charlie Rose has been accused of sexual harassment by former colleagues, and his co-anchors Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell are now speaking out.

“It takes a lot of courage for these women to come forward and I think that they should continue to do so,” Norah said on the show this morning. “This is a moment that demands a frank and honest assessment about where we stand and more generally the safety of women. Let me be very clear: There is no excuse for this alleged behavior. It is systematic and pervasive and I’ve been doing a lot of listening and I’m going to continue to do that.”

“This I know is true, women can not achieve equality in the workplace or in society until there is a reckoning or taking of responsibility,” Norah continued. “I am so proud to work at CBS News. There are so many incredibly people here, especially on this show. All of you here. This will be investigated. This has to end. This behavior is wrong.”

“I got 1 hour and 42 minutes of sleep last night,” Gayle added. “Both my son [William Bumpus, Jr.] and my daughter [Kirby Bumpus] called me. Oprah called me and said, ‘Are you okay?’ I am not okay. After reading that article in the Post, it was deeply disturbing, troubling and painful for me to read.”

“I think that we have to make this matter to woman – the woman that have spoken up, the women who have not spoken up because they are afraid, I’m hoping that now they will take the step to speak up too and that this becomes a moment of truth,” she continued.

Rose has since been fired by CBS

Charlie Rose Apologizes After Being Accused of Sexual Harassment By Multiple Women

Charlie Rose has been accused of sexual harassment by eight different women.

The 75-year-old journalist and talk show host reportedly made unwanted sexual advances toward the women according to a report from The Washington Post.

The women, who range from age 21 to 37, say that Charlie made lewd phone calls, exposed himself and or groped their bodies during incidents occurring from 1990 to 2011.

Following the accusations, Charlie released a statement apologizing for his actions.

“In my 45 years in journalism, I have prided myself on being an advocate for the careers of the women with whom I have worked. Nevertheless, in the past few days, claims have been made about my behavior toward some former female colleagues,” Charlie said.

He added, “It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.”

Charlie has since be suspended by CBS and his PBS show has halted production.
