Can I say something about Katherine Ryan? I've worked in the restaurant industry for decades.
She starts off working at a Hooters in Ontario. She's so good she becomes the GM. She's so good at that, the company moves her to the Hooters in Manhattan. She's so great in New York that Hooters corporate moves her to London to open their London location as a manager.
You know what that tells me about her? She was sucking and fucking everyone above her in the management chain. Probably really debasing herself, since they felt obligated to reward her so handsomely.
That's how the restaurant world works.

R12 She said as much on the documentary - in which she did not come off very well. She said it was ok to fuck her boss “because she liked him” - but then later said she has never had a one night stand. Not slut-shaming, but get your fucks in order, playa.
presumably, admitting to all of that on camera presumably means there’s way more which is worse…

R13 I don't specifically know about Hooters, but corporate prostitution is definitely practiced by much more banal restaurant chains so they have to also be doing it. I know Hooters waitresses often moonlight as escorts.
Whatever she did to get the London job had to have been either with executives or on behalf of the company with someone. That's how girls in their twenties get shipped to Europe to work a job they aren't old enough or experienced enough for.
But, like you said, if she's admitting to sleeping with her boss there must be much more damning things she's choosing not to talk about.

The problem with Brand is that Ryan said she called the predator out to his face 'every day' when they were on a series together (not her own show) but I can't find a series they were on together.
But that search turned up another candidate that she did work with--Noel Fielding. He's on record as making creepy sexual comments on the British Bakeoff show of all places. They were together on the series Live at the Apollo.

I don't think she's obligated to put up or shut up. If enough people in the biz make it known they've heard the stories, the victims might feel more empowered to come forward.

I’m in 2 minds about this r32. Obviously, if she hasn’t personally witnessed or experienced abuse at the hands of this guy she can’t identify him, which she hasn’t. I’ve gone on Twitter, Reddit, Digital Spy. Everyone but everyone knows who she is talking about so it’s not like, say, Paul Merton or Michael McIntyre are in danger.
But saying nothing, not even saying “something stinks in comedy land”, is how Jimmy Savile and John Peel got away with it for decades at the BBC. Everyone knew. No one said anything.
Maybe if she did a John Lydon and launched a carefully non-slanderous rant fantasising about killing him during an interview would sit more comfortably, but this isn’t far off IMO.

Theroux's shows are mildly entertaining in a quirky way but I actually find him to be very incurious. For example, he never dug properly into Jimmy Savile - did he at least not do some research or hear any rumours especially if he was working at the BBC. He tends to take people as how they present themselves. Another example is his Las Vegas gambling show - there was a guy from Canada who made his money from mattresses and would gamble big. I started wondering where his money really came from and whether there was a money laundering aspect. But Theroux never really digs deeper.

I saw the second show on Savile and he seemed genuinely remorseful about how he bought Savile's schtick but he STILL didn't seem to understand his naivete and lack of real curiosity was the issue.

Ryan is very unlikeable.
She was on a show called Safeword which humiliates the celebrities taking part. Yes the celebrities should have known what they were signing up for but Ryan was sadistic and clearly took great pleasure in it.
Her Netflix series was fucking awful. Not surprised it was cancelled after one series.
As for the sexual predator, I'm not clear if she means someone who is creepy and behaves inappropriately (i.e. having consensual sex with interns or junior staff and then dumps them quickly) or someone who commits criminal offences and violates women.

Theroux HAS done some good stuff.

I thought his documentaries on alcoholism and families with medicated children were well done too, I think he's at his best when his style of making unconventional/outsider people very comfortable with him serves the material which worked with addicts, families, and wholesome goofballs and that sort of stuff.

Theroux can be great, I've really enjoyed many of his shows (year ago), they had a moral streak running through them, moral without being judgemental, makes for some great portraits of people in difficult situations who otherwise wouldn't have opened up - in interviews he's a bit different I've noticed, you occasionally see shades of a my way or the highway type of activist, which I find to be a shame.

I always preferred Ruby Wax's shows in the 90s than Theroux's, and wish she was still doing them. They were similarly structured but hers were funnier to me, and yet still she wasn't afraid to ask the tough questions - see her interviews with Trump, Imelda Marcos, Carrie Fisher, Madonna... the actual investigative ones she did (such as the episode on the chain gang, or the one on beauty pageants) were a lot more enlightening and she had a natural rapport with these people.
She felt a bit more genuine (wasn't putting on this 'lovable' awkward, gawky persona that Theroux does).

r97 It means someone went to court and got an order ruling that the allegations cannot be talked about, under threat of contempt of court.

Gather 'round. I have googled.
Russell Brand has had a press injunction (not a super injunction) for almost a decade against a Hungarian masseuse who had claimed he "treated her like a prostitute." Katy Ryan is entirely uninvolved, much as she might wish to be.
Super injunctions have been granted to celebrities in previous blackmail and extortion cases, such as to Take That singer Howard Donald. Super injunctions seem to only apply to the press and to individuals named in the ruling.
So if Katy Ryan wasn't taken to court by Russell Brand, and I don't see why or how she could have been, she's free to say his name in public and report that he is the subject of sexual assault rumors.

Hun, you can't get an injunction in English courts stopping "people" discussing something.
You can get an injunction stopping the reporting of a story by a news outlet - see Ryan Giggs taking out an injunction against The Sun. Prince Harry has an injunction to stop publication of the naked photos of him in Vegas.
Do you honestly think that a if a credible news outlet in the US had evidence of an affair involving Prince William they wouldn't publish it?

You're simply wrong about that. Here, have the attorney general warning Twitter users they'll be done for contempt of court for breaching an injunction.

The injunction wasn’t taken out against ‘people on Twitter’. It was taken out against The Sun. People then discussed the injunction and who the footballer was.
And it looks like you didn’t read the article you linked to. As the lawyer points out, how can a person breach an injunction they don’t know exists?
It might be libellous to tweet that Prince William was fucking a neighbour but without having the details of this alleged injunction how can anyone be faced with legal action for breaching it?

r118 Are you really this dense? So you think it only applied to The Sun? So why did no other paper run the story? Why was the attorney general threatening to go after individual Twitter users? Because it applies to everyone, not just The Sun. Seriously, just the tiniest bit of googling would've helped you stop yourself looking like a massive idiot.
And a lawyer offered an opinion that it'd be a difficult case for the AG to take on, not that it was impossible.

I appreciate you've dug yourself into a hole over this.
Your original post was
"Prince William took an injunction out on people discussing an alleged affair with a neighbour."
This is literally impossible in English law.
You can't take an injunction out against millions of people living in a country. In the Ryan Giggs case he took an injunction out against The Sun from reporting his affair with a minor celebrity. The injunction wasn't taken out against people in general, it was taken out against The Sun. Not The Daily Mirror, The Daily Mail or the BBC, but The Sun.
And in response to "So why did no other paper run the story?" the answer is obvious, because Imogen Thomas had sold her story to The Sun for a huge amount of money and the other papers didn't have the facts or the testimony. When The Sun did eventually publish they repeated the claims and from memory other women came forward.
As Dominic Grieve warned, members of the public "MAY" be subject to breaching the injunction if they name the person on Twitter, even though they are not the subject of the injunction.
And on your claim that "Prince William has an injunction" - how do you know this? Where has it been reported? How would anyone know this injunction is in place? How could anyone be found guilty of breaching an injunction they can't know exists?
It's not like the naming of child offenders or victims of sexual assault who have a legal right to anonymity. James Bulger's murderers and the rape victim at the centre of the Ched Evans trial have had their anonymity breached online and people have been prosecuted for it.

You've been proven wrong about this so many times already, it's ridiculous that you're still clinging to this argument. You're clearly not British, and yet still trying to pretend you understand English law in this regard. Go read up on the Trafigura injunction and how they threatened to sue an MP for breaking it, despite that MP having parliamentary privilege.

This is definitely about David Walliams. Some women recently told of their experiences with him to someone in the publishing realm. Whether they go public with them remains to be seen.

Not really linked to the Ryan allegation, but not worth creating a new thread over. From Popbitch:
Old footage of a Little Britain Live routine resurfaced in recent months in which David Walliams (in character as 'Des Kaye') drags a series of teenage boys up onto the stage to play a game of 'Hide The Sausage' with them. This involves him wrestling each of them to the floor, pulling down their pants to bare their arses, then writhing around on top of them trying to hump them.
The footage is from 2007 but the routine is actually one of Walliams' oldest bits.
In his schooldays at Reigate Grammar he was famous for pushing smaller boys against a wall and dry-humping them for laughs. The only difference is that the character was called "Cuthbert Hogsbottom" back then.

When Pi*rs Mor*an was working in America trying to make it big something went down. He came back to the UK. All employees of the TV media company he worked for had to allegedly sign a very specific non disclosure agreement in regards to an an incident. One of the ex employees then stated on Twitter that he was fired for Sexual harrassment. And not your average sexual harassment either. It was allegedly quite up there in terms of aggressiveness. You can still find it online. All unsubstantiated and am not saying it occurred. Just repeating gossip that can be found online.

There’s a weird bit in David Walliams memoir about his heart being broken by an unnamed young woman he calls The Actress (it’s a teenage Romola Garai). They go on a cruise with a bunch of comics (a pre Gavin And Stacey James Corden is one of them, and I think maybe Rob Brydon or Ben Miller?) and in the cabin she reads his diary. She has a huge meltdown about the descriptions of women he fucked and dumps him.

A posh British journalist called George Monbiot who has a long history of associating with far left cranks (George Galloway, Jeremy Corbyn) has written an article on Brand becoming a crank, despite Brand’s long history of crank association, including promoting David Icke and sharing 9/11 conspiracies.

Am a Brit, and while I certainly believe this allegation and take it seriously, and have no love for Brand or Theroux or Walliams and their ilk, I can’t abide this Yank women either.
She’s all over our panel shows and comedy specials, and she’s just not funny or interesting. Either that, or her comedy doesn’t translate. She looks beautiful, which is suppose is why she got the gig. We’ve plenty of homegrown female talent to fill her spot, she can go home now.
Am sorry about her ordeal, however, and support her outing any misdemeanour (though naming and shaming may be the way to do it rather than vague allusion, no?). Men in the industry really are pigs.

Nakedness and horseplay is inherently humourous as well as titillating to British men. Perhaps it’s all the repression.

That's a perfectly valid reason to break up a relationship. Mans was writing a confessional book about gory filthy details of his hoeing, presumably with names, and left it around where his gf could easily access it. He sounds like a pervert and an exhibitionist.

There are rumours on Twitter that one of the British Sunday papers is about to break a massive #MeToo story. Also, Channel 4 have scheduled a ninety-minute episode of Dispatches tomorrow, but haven't given any indication of what it's about. Wonder if all this has anything to do with the celebrity Katherine Ryan mentioned last year?
