Harvey Weinstein’s Wife Is ‘Leaning’ On Huma Abedin

Hannah Bleau

As you’ve heard, Harvey Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman, is leaving him. Who can BLAME her? In the very least, she owes it to her children. They deserve better than Harvey.

“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time,” Chapman said in a statement to People Magazine.

While I can’t imagine what she’s going through, I have to wonder. Did she know her husband was such a complete perv? I mean, in the very least, did she have an inkling? Surely, she had an inkling.

I’m not distributing blame. I’m just wondering out loud.

This is, without a doubt, difficult on Chapman. Thank God she has Huma Abedin.

That’s right. Huma. She’s “leaning” on her. Who better to lean on, really? Huma knows ALLLLLLLL about having an incredibly pervy husband.

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.



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.”

From what I can tell, it wasn’t too awkward for Chapman to reach out. The women were already familiar with each other. Huma’s been Hillary Clinton’s top aide, and Weinstein’s been a YUUUUGE Hillary supporter, holding fundraisers galore. It’s probably not a stretch to say that the women are already friends. Page Six notes that “the Clintons rented a Hamptons house next door to Weinstein and Chapman’s Amagansett estate for three summers.” I’m sure Huma was around.
The source added that while they first met through Weinstein, Abedin did go to Chapman’s daughter’s birthday party in the Hamptons this summer, and they have remained in contact.

Boom. Called it.

I suppose Huma is the perfect person to call in this situation. She knows all about dealing with a disgusting, pervy husband. Although I can’t imagine it’s the most exciting thing to “bond” over.
