“It was middle-aged women who were really wealthy. They seemed to feel like they had a right to trespass on my territory. I’m talking late-night knocks on my hotel door, to passing by and even touching me… there was a real sense of entitlement.”

“Usually they had quite a bit of champagne in them. I guess you could say I was a #MeToo victim, but hey, they’re all forgiven on my end.”
