Robin Quivers Talks About Her #MeToo Sexual Assault

On The Howard Stern Show Tuesday morning the shock jock discussed his disgust at Julie Chen’s decision to stick by her disgraced husband, former CBS President Les Moonves who has been accused of sexual predation. The latest reports of sexual misconduct in the New Yorker allege that Moonves forced women to perform oral sex on him and that he threatened women with physical violence and intimidation. He also exposed himself without consent, according to the report.

“I lived this,” Robin Quivers who is now 66, said. “Seeing someone stand by their man after learning they had molested their daughter. Where do you think I grew up?”

Stern replied: “Oh that’s right, that’s your life story. You witnessed that. You went to your mom and told her ‘mom, dad molested me.’”

“Telling her as an adult, she still didn’t leave. She got upset. I was probably in my thirties,” Quivers explained. “What the deal was I wasn’t speaking to them. And she said ‘okay I want to know why.’ And I told her.”

“We were only on letter writing terms. So I wrote down what happened. I wrote that I was 11-years-old, ‘you used to go shopping, and then dad you know would try to have his way with me.’”

Stern asked Robin if she wrote her mom back.

“Yeah, she said she was so angry at him, but clearly not enough to leave him,” Quivers responded. “I was completely explicit. And I told her the anguish and horror it was for me.”

“That’s why I kept my mouth shut because even then I knew it would get warped. Because one day she did accuse me of ‘colluding with my father — that we got together and kept something from her.’ Can you imagine me having to deal with that when I was 11.”

“For a very long time, I kept the secret, and it controlled my life,” Quivers wrote. “Once I spoke about it, got the help and support I needed, it changed me. I was freed to be happy, successful. It wasn’t gonna happen while I was under the effects of abuse. I want people to know you don’t have to be a permanent victim.”

“It was like a nuclear explosion going off in my life, destroying everything,” she recalled of the alleged abuse. “The things I thought I knew about the world were all wrong. The things I thought I knew about myself were wrong, too. I was left with nothing, and in the wake of this nothing, I had to figure out how to make myself safe again.”

Hear Howard Stern ask Harvey Weinstein About Using his Power for Sexual Favors

Appearing on The Howard Stern Show in 2014, Harvey Weinstein attempted to paint a picture of himself as a well-read, dedicated father who stayed away from any of the stereotypical Hollywood funny business.

“Why not stay single? I gotta figure every starlet in Hollywood wanted to at least blow you, you know what I’m saying?” asked Stern. “Did you ever get to experience, I’m gonna say, the mogul aspect? I mean, Do a little coke, hang out with, I don’t know, Julia Roberts give you a hand job, something? You never got any of that?”

“Howard, as you know only too well, it doesn’t work that way,” Weinstein replied. “I’ll tell you who it works that way for: it works that way for the actors.”

“Come on, every girl knows that if she’s a competent actress, she could get on your good side, you could make her a star over-fucking-night,” Stern insisted to Weinstein in the 2014 interview. “Don’t tell me it doesn’t work that way.”

Weinstein gave the answer we would all expect: “Howard, the movies are too expensive, the risks are too great,” he said. “It doesn’t happen that way anymore.”

Stern then asked: “You can’t walk into the room, pull your pants off, say, ‘Okay, honey’?” An amazing question at the time given the multiple allegations of Weinstein having done just that.
