Andy Dick Groped Ivanka Trump in Resurfaced Jimmy Kimmel Footage

Of all of the men named in #MeToo stories, Andy Dick was the least surprising to many folks. Yes, including Harvey Weinstein.

And now, the world can see for themselves in newly resurfaced video from 2007.

On television — on Jimmy Kimmel, in fact — Andy Dick reaches over and gropes Ivanka before getting removed by security.

Andy Dick is a comedian and actor. Unfortunately, he has been accused of groping a number of people.

Despite his dismissive attitude towards those claims, he has been let go from projects because of it.

(Don't touch people without their consent, folks)

Now, an old clip of Andy exhibiting inappropriate touching has surfaced.

He and Ivanka Trump were both guests of Jimmy Kimmel's in 2007. And Andy couldn't — or rather, he simply refused to — keep his hands to himself.

In the clip, Andy can be seen reaching over and running his finger's along Ivanka's leg.

Kimmel tells him to stop.

Ivanka, though trying to laugh it off at the time (and clearly looking over to Kimmel to make sure that he has noticed), tries to get him to stop.

Eventually, Andy was removed by security.

Kimmel would later suggest that Andy, who has been to rehab more than a dozen times in his struggle for sobriety, was under the influence.

Andy actually reminded his followers about this incident by posting about it in December of 2017.

"The time I 'groped' Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, on Jimmy Kimmel Live," he writes.

"Her legs were sparkling," he says, as if to explain. "And I was trying to see if the glitter would wipe off."

That curiosity is understandable. Acting on it is not excusable.

"I also mistakenly thought she would date me," he says.

Wow.

"I was jokingly carried off by security," Andy says.

Maybe half-jokingly.

"Is anybody going to carry Trump off?" Andy asked in December. "No joke. Confusing times."

This is a transparent attempt to deflect from his own actions.

See, a lot of people would like to see Donald Trump impeached and tried for his misconduct and alleged crimes.

But trying to distract from your own behavior by pointing to someone else's is called whataboutism.

Ivanka Trump may be her father's daughter, but that doesn't mean that it's open season on any of her body parts.

Andy Dick has been dismissive of allegations against him, saying that he never touched people's genitals and perhaps licked some people's faces.

His implication was that it's all part of his brand.

Folks, "it's all part of the act" does not fly when we're talking about sexual harassment or sexual assault.

If the other person does not consent, you are not entitled to touch them. Yes, even if their father is a bad, bad man.

Andy Dick may struggle with sobriety, and we wish him the best on his quest for good mental and physical health.

But everyone has their struggles. No one is entitled to invade another's body without permission. Even if it's covered in glitter.

Andy Spade Releases Statement, Is in “Complete Shock” Over Kate Spade Suicide

Andy Spade has spoken out in great and heartwrenching detail about his estranged wife’s death.

The statement comes a day after we learned that world famous fashion designer Kate Spade committed suicide inside her Park Avenue apartment in New York City.

She was 55 years old.

“Kate was the most beautiful woman in the world. She was the kindest person I’ve ever known and my best friend for 35 years,” said Andy to open his lengthy message, which continues as follows;

“My daughter and I are devastated by her loss, and can’t even begin to fathom life without her. We are deeply heartbroken and miss her already.

Andy and Kate were parents to a 13-year old girl.

And Andy is the brother of David Spade, who released his own statement on Tuesday night.

He went on to address his wife’s mental condition:

“Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years. She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease, one that takes far too many lives.

“We were in touch with her the night before and she sounded happy. There was no indication and no warning that she would do this. It was a complete shock.

“And it clearly wasn’t her. There were personal demons she was battling.”

Andy says he and Kate had been living separately for close to a year.

They continued to dine together on occasion and remained a part of each other’s lives, however, for the sake of their child.

He references her in the next part of his statement:

Bea was living with both of us and we saw each other or spoke every day. We ate many meals together as a family and continued to vacation together as a family.

Our daughter was our priority. We were not legally separated, and never even discussed divorce. We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how.

We were together for 35 years. We loved each other very much and simply needed a break.

Spade went on to shoot down any talk to the contrary, while emphasizing that his daughter is now his only concern.

“This is the truth. Anything else that is out there right now is false. [Kate] was actively seeking help for depression and anxiety over the last 5 years, seeing a doctor on a regular basis and taking medication for both depression and anxiety. There was no substance or alcohol abuse.

There were no business problems. We loved creating our businesses together. We were co-parenting our beautiful daughter.

I have yet to see any note left behind and am appalled that a private message to my daughter has been so heartlessly shared with the media.

(According to multiple sources, Kate Spade left a suicide note that assured her child that she loved her and that her fate was not her fault.)

Concluded Andy:

My main concern is Bea and protecting her privacy as she deals with the unimaginable grief of losing her mother. Kate loved Bea so very much.

Since Kate’s passing, a multitude designers, celebrities, fashion lovers and family members have been paying tribute online via photos, statements and personal memories.

We are all devastated by today’s tragedy,” a family statement read, according to The New York Times, adding:

“We loved Kate dearly and will miss her terribly. We would ask that our privacy be respected as we grieve during this very difficult time.”

Our condolences go out to the Spade family and all affected by this tragedy.

Kim Cattrall vs Sarah Jessica Parker: Andy Cohen Says It’s Not a Catfight

What began as a missing person's case has ended in tragedy. Kim Cattrall's brother has died at 55

When Kim's former costar, Sarah Jessica Parker, reached out with her condolences, Kim Cattrall shot her down. 

As you can hear below, no one is more flabbergasted at this than Andy Cohen, who has waded into this feud to defend Sarah Jessica Parker.

Kim cattrall

After Sex and the City actress Kim Cattrall's missing brother's body was discovered, she shared the crushing news on Instagram.

Among the flurry of sympathetic responses was a comment from Sarah Jessica Parker.

"Dearest Kim, my love and condolensces to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. xx"

Kim's reply was … intense.

"I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker."

The message, a full post on Instagram, continued, and Kim Cattrall made herself every clear.

"Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend."

That's … extremely harsh.

"So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona."

While Kim Cattrall is certainly grieving, the level of enmity here is palpable. And it's also nothing new.

This is where Andy Cohen comes in, speaking on his SiriusXM channel, Radio Andy.

"I thought it was fake. I was like, ‘There’s no way Kim Cattrall has posted this on her Instagram.’ This is a women who is in the middle of grieving the loss of her brother, which is tragic and sad."

It is a crushing loss. But Kim really did post that on Instagram.

"She accused SJP of exploiting a tragedy … She follows Kim on Instagram, Kim posted about her brother dying, and she expressed her condolences on the post … She posted it in a comment!"

Posting it in a comment, which is quickly buried under other comments and doesn't draw people to your own page, is generally seen as more respectful if you're walking on eggshells and don't want to be accused of exploiting a situation.

Andy Cohen goes on and continues to express his bewilderment.

"I would not call that ‘exploiting a tragedy.’ What was she supposed to do? Say something bad? I mean, I don’t understand."

Most people are lucky enough to not understand what Kim Cattrall is going through, but that doesn't necessarily excuse an entire post dedicated to blasting a former friend over condolences.

"I also don’t like it that people are characterizing this as a catfight."

The way that Andy sees things, it takes two to tango, this thing — whatever it is — seems to be very one-sided.

"There’s only one person fighting here … I even kind of, admittedly, didn’t try to stir it up on Watch What Happens Live when Sarah was on, but I was like, ‘What do you think?’ Sarah only said the nicest things about her … It’s a catfight of one from where I see it."

Admittedly, we're inclined to feel the same way as Andy does — rudeness and hostility on this level is shocking.

At the same time, if someone's made it clear that they don't want you in any way to be part of your life, it's good to respect that, even if you find it hurtful or unfair.

Even so — one wonders what sorts of things people would say about Sarah Jessica Parker if it became known that she had said nothing about Kim's loss. It's a no-win situation.

Listen to the rest of Andy's comments and decide for yourself if you agree with his characterizations.
