Megyn Kelly welcomed two more women to the set of her NBC morning show who have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct. On hand today were former production assistant Mimi Haleyi, actress Dominique Huett and their lawyers.
In an dramatic retelling, Haleyi accused Weinstein of forcing her to engage in oral sex.
“When I went upstairs to his apartment, he wasn’t wearing a robe at all but he did start making advances,” she told Kelly. “He was very intimidating, also very persistent and forceful and big physically. He backed me into a dark room … didn’t seem like a master bedroom or anything and he held me down and forced oral sex on me.”
Kelly asked if she brought the matter to police, Haleyi did not, and continued explaining her thought process during the encounter.
“I didn’t know what to do. I couldn’t really get away physically. But I was thinking, I have two choice here, I could either start screaming and kicking like crazy and maybe not make it out.”
Huett also relayed a similar story of forced oral sex, which he said was “very similar” to Haleyi’s story. “He kind of just forced me into doing something I didn’t want to do.”
Kelly then went into dangerous territory, asking Huett to describe to skeptical viewers how forced oral sex was possible.
“I don’t want to make you feel uncomfortable, but you know some people hear forced oral sex and they think how,” said Kelly. “Did he hold you down? Could you just help us understand that.”
“It was a coercive thing, like it was just going to happen no matter how hard I refused.”
