Former waitress dishes on ‘sleazy’ Harvey Weinstein’s habits that ‘continue to plague me to this day’


Based on first-hand experience, reporter Jade Budowski wrote in a scathing exposé published Saturday in the New York Post that Harvey Weinstein “was every bit the sleazy Hollywood caricature recent reports have made him out to be.”

Now with, Budowski said recent reports that Weinstein settled sexual harassment claims from at least eight women “brought back terrible recollections.”

“The feelings of anxiety and degradation he inflicted on all of us — especially the women — continue to plague me to this day,” she wrote.

Budowski worked as a waitress at the Tribeca Grill, which is located in Weinstein’s office building, for 6 months, from July 2016 to January 2017, according to The Post.

“I watched numerous times as a string of young women — some seemingly no older than 21 — entered the restaurant for long, flirty dinners with him, even though he was married with five children,” she wrote.

“These women were all the same: vaguely European, always beautiful, stylishly dressed, and totally out of place next to someone like him.

“The ritual for his rendezvous was very firm. Champagne, caviar, and an unspoken rule that Weinstein and his date not be disturbed. The pair would sit close, whispering and touching each other suggestively. After dining, Weinstein and a woman would often disappear for a while, exiting the restaurant through a side door.”


Budowski shared salacious gossip from staff about an “officer tour” that would usually happen “well past working hours, after which the girl would return looking worse for wear and barely able to finish the glass,” as described by a fellow server.

She said many of the women would return for second or third dates, and would sometimes return with the Hollywood producer the next morning, wearing the same clothes and still-wet hair.

And while Weinstein was charming to his lady friends, Budowski said “he terrorized the wait staff” and ate like a child.

“His food tastes were those of toddler,” she penned. “He’d regularly order ‘well-done’ fries, chopped-up fettuccine, ice cream with extra sprinkles and French onion soup that he would slurp and splatter all over the booth.”

Budowski also said inappropriate touching, like tapping the butt of a female server, “was a habit of his.”

…and something she personally experienced.

“If you weren’t paying attention and the restaurant was loud, he might lurch at whatever part of you he could reach,” she said. “Once, while I put in an order at the computer, he barreled up and body-checked me.”

Referencing her silence until now, Budowski took to social media to encourage other women to speak out.

“I hope women will continue to come forward with the truth. We’ve been silent for too long,” she tweeted.
