Char­lie Rose’s makeup artist sues, al­leg­ing ha­rass­ment

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Stay Connected -

The for­mer chief makeup artist at Char­lie Rose’s in­ter­view show is su­ing him, say­ing the dis­graced tele­vi­sion jour­nal­ist ran a “toxic work en­vi­ron­ment” for women.

Gina Riggi said in her ha­rass­ment law­suit filed Thurs­day that she worked for 22 years for Rose and Bloomberg, the com­pany where his Man­hat­tan stu­dio was lo­cated. She lost her job in 2017 af­ter Rose was fired by PBS and CBS News for sex­ual mis­con­duct.

Riggi charges that Rose treated his stu­dio as a sex­ual hunt­ing ground for at­trac­tive young women. She says he groped and pawed fe­male staff mem­bers, stared at their breasts, and dan­gled job prospects to wine and dine women.
