Charlie Rose was spotted with a woman in New York City amid allegations of sexual misconduct.
What me worry? Charlie Rose looks more like Alfred E. Newman during the dinner with a beautiful woman on the Upper West Side, where he was besieged by other women in the row for selfies.
Spies said that the disgraced ex-host of “CBS this morning was Gabriel’s Bar & Restaurant, with a beautiful young brunette on Thursday evening, and don’t seem to have lost its old charm.”
Rose looked in a great atmosphere”, said an onlooker, who added that he looked like he had a few bottles of wine.” But the viewer was stunned to see that other women are falling all over themselves to approach Rose, who was fired by the CBS and PBS last month after allegations of sexual harassment.
The witness said: “Charlie was approached by a few women who asked for selfies with him, and he happily obliged. First, a group of four women asked for a photo, which prompted other women in the restaurant to join the line.”
However, the scene led to anger and astonishment of the other female guests. One aroused patron told us, “I thought, ‘Is this really happening?’ No wonder people don’t take sexual harassment seriously. He was treated like a king!”
Rose tells us a different story. He said: “No one is prepared. The people who came across a family from Florida, who bred their Lab, Stella, with my Labrador Barclay five years ago. It was a mother and her three daughters in New York and happen to be there for the dinner. She just came to say hello.”
When asked what was he up to now, Rose replied, “I try my time wisely by listening to my friends and others to understand and to learn. It is a time to listen, not talk.”
In November, eight women alleged that Rose made unwanted sexual advances. An assistant said he ran naked for her at least a dozen times as she worked at his New York home when she was 21, and that he called her in the evening to describe fantasies of her naked in the pool. He responded at the time, “I have behaved insensitively at times . . . although I don’t think that all of these statements are true . . . I always had the feeling that I the pursuit of a common feeling, although I realize now that I was mistaken.”
