Geraldo Rivera is Next on the #MeToo Chopping Block – Here’s Why

It looks like Geraldo Rivera will be the next news personality to go down in the #MeToo movement.  For almost 25 years, allegations of sexual abuse have floated around him like an ominous cloud.

Firstly, Rivera came under fire for his opinions about Matt Lauer.  Earlier this week, Today booted Lauer over his questionable behavior in the workplace.  Rivera expressed an opinion that proved unpopular to many.

Either he didn’t know the full story of Lauer, or he’s a certified creep himself.  Unfortunately, it looks like it’s the latter.  In a world where a powerful player like Weinstein has gone down, abusers can no longer hide behind the power they wield.

Actress Bette Midler chose the opportune moment to resurface her allegations against Geraldo Rivera back in the 1970s.  During an interview with Barbra Walters back in the early 1990s, Midler described an encounter that she had with Rivera.

During the interview, Midler hesitated to discuss the incident.  She said she might get in trouble.

However, Walters pressed her to discuss the incident.  “Get in a little trouble,” Walters said.

Then, Walters detailed her experience with Rivera and his producer:

Geraldo and his producer came to do an interview with me in the ’70s, the early ’70s. And this was back when he was very sort of ‘hot, and he and his producer left the crew in the other room, they pushed me into my bathroom, they broke two poppers and pushed them under my nose, and proceeded to grope me…

For those who don’t know, poppers are inhaled drugs that enhance one’s libido.  Midler continued with resentment and sarcasm in her voice.

I didn’t offer myself up on the altar of Geraldo Rivera.  He was — he was unseemly. His behavior was unseemly.

And my friend said, ‘Oh, what a charmer! Of course you slept with him after that!’

I’ll tell you the truth. If I had known that … 20 years later he was going to wind up as a slimy talk-show host, I never would have even let him in the room.

When this interview first aired, it didn’t get much attention.  Rivera was seen as a bit of a has-been.  Somehow, he resurrected his career.  Maybe this will finally be the time Rivera goes down.  In case there are any doubts about this story, Rivera admitted to the incident himself.

From his 1991 book Exposing Myself:

We were in the bathroom, preparing for the interview, and at some point, I put my hands on her breasts.

No wonder he defended Lauer.
