The worst scandals any celebrity can experience are the ones where bad news keeps coming out, dripping like a leaking faucet.
For Mr Charlie Rose, star reporter of CBS for over three decades, it’s indeed starting to look like that kind of scandal.
Fired by his employers CBS and PBS, where he hosted CBS This Morning and was a correspondent on 60 Minutes, he now finds himself as the protagonist in scandal stories.
Earlier this week, Miss Sarah Gordon, a former intern on PBS’ The Charlie Rose Show, accused her old boss of sexual harassment.

She explains that Mr Charlie Rose invited her to an apartment of his back in 2002 and then proceeded to ask her if she would watch a part of the movie “Secretary” with him, a movie in which the lead character, played by actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, engages in S&M with her boss, played by James Spader.
Miss Gordon: “I proceeded to go into the living room, and he said ‘I want to show you this scene from this movie’.”
“He said, ‘Have a seat, relax’ and he proceeded to turn on the film Secretary, which is a sexually involved film, involving S&M unfortunately. I guess some people are really into this. I’m not.”
“I take a step back, and I’m like, what’s the intention here? I’m not exactly sure what I said or but I was like, oh well, I guess some people are really into this, and I’m not.”
For those of you that haven’t seen it, and not many people have, the movie ‘Secretary’, centers on the S&M relationship that forms between a boss and her secretary, so if your boss shows that movie to you, you can understand what you might be thinking.
“I just didn’t know what to say, probably then I tried to divert it,” Miss Gordon stated. “I always try to change the subject.”
