Lisa Bloom, attorney to the stars — and the star-adjacent —appeared on "Good Morning America" on Friday to explain what moved her to sign on to represent Harvey Weinstein in the face of sexual harassment allegations.
In an interview with George Stephanopoulos, Bloom was candid that Weinstein's past behavior was unacceptable and said she had agreed to help the producer because she saw it as an opportunity to be on "the other side" of a sexual misconduct case.
“I’ve done a lot of cases for women and I’ve often thought, ‘Gee, I wish I could get on the other side and smack that guy around a little bit verbally,’” Bloom said. "Here was an opportunity of a guy saying, ‘Lisa, what should I do? I have behaved badly.’ I’m like, ‘Good. I’m going to tell you what to do. Be honest. Be real.’”
