This might be a weird comment but the whole Weinstein scandal makes Cait having Tony (who I think is her good friend) with her at lots of work events make lots of sense. I read an article today by a woman who was assaulted at an industry event by a TV Exec. It’s gross what these guys get away with. I don’t think that’s the only reason Cait has a friend go with her to these things, but it’s just more context and might help some people who are bummed when he’s with her.
I don’t think it’s weird. If she can’t have Sam with her then why not a trusted friend? I’m sure she’s learned a lot being in the business so long and maybe doesn’t feel comfortable being alone with certain men in power. With so many stories coming out of assault and harassment almost everyday in relation to Weinstein and other men, it’s not a reach to suggest such a thing.
