Once they got to the restaurant's kitchen, Weinstein sent away a few employees who were cleaning up. "I can't go forward with those books unless Harvey resigns", Brzezinski added.
According to a Huffington Post report, Lauren Sivan who was working as a news anchor with a local cable channel in NY at the time said the experience had left her shocked and that she had discussed the incident with her friends who had advised her to remain quiet.
When they got to the club, Weinstein reportedly asked Sivan if she wanted a tour.
In July, Weinstein Books announced plans to publish three of Brzezinski's books, including a revised edition of her bestseller "Knowing Your Value: Women, Money, and Getting What You're Worth".

His attorney Lisa Bloom also resigned on Saturday, despite initially defending him after he retained her as an advisor.
Her friend, who was present at the restaurant, and several sources, who shared similar experiences with Weinstein and spoke on the condition of anonymity, corroborated several details in Sivan's story. Sivan said she was deeply shocked by Weinstein's behavior and was frozen and didn't know what to do or say. Even after the incident, Sivan said Weinstein called her office the next day, saying he had a "great time last night" and did she want to get together soon? Sivan said she reluctantly agreed and they went downstairs to the restaurant.
According to the report, the Miramax co-founder called Sivan the next day to tell her that he had a good time and invited her to meet with him again. She has not interacted with Weinstein since the incident in 2007. She said she had gotten near "the end zone" once, only to bump up against the ultimate silencer: "fear". The Weinstein Company confirmed on Friday that the studio head would be taking "an indefinite leave of absence" starting immediately.
