Evine’s Todd English sued for alleged sexual harassment

November 15, 2017

Guess it was only a matter of time before the sexual-harassment scandals that have hit the film and TV industries, as well as Washington, made their way to the home shopping world. Hello bad-boy chef and restaurateur Todd English, an HSN alum who is now on Evine sell kitchenware.

English is known as a womanizer, with the New York Post’s Page Six gossip column over the years doing stories about him in hot tubs with naked women and such. But this is different.

The Post recently reported that English and staff members of his Plaza Hotel Food Hall in Manhattan are being sued for alleged sexual harassment. That action was filed a few weeks ago by Gabrielle Eubank, according to the tabloid.

And that’s not all, folks.

In August six present and former English employees filed their own sexual-harassment suit, charging that there was a “rape culture” at Food Hall, with male staffers making obscene comments and being “sexually suggestive with pens, cucumbers and bananas,” the Post wrote.

English’s spokesman has no comment for the Post story, which went on to list a number of famous chefs and restaurant owners who have been accused of sexual abuse and harassment by female staff members.

The headline on the story was “Harvey-style sex abuse rampant in NYC dining world: workers.”
