She also noted, "I am having to sell my house right now, paying legal bills to fight off 'the monster.' That is what I am facing".

The New York Times reported last October that McGowan was one of at least eight women with whom Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein had reached financial settlements regarding his alleged inappropriate sexual conduct.

"Yes, you see my friends, you see me have to be arrested", McGowan said when asked by reporters at the TCA Panel for Citizen Rose on Tuesday, January 9, if viewers will see her personal life.

Rose McGowan has said she's been forced to sell her house to pay for legal fees. [I was misinformed] by a lawyer that I had signed one, when in fact it turned out I hadn't.

Rose McGowan - the writer, director, activist, and former actor who has led the charge against Harvey Weinstein - appeared Tuesday at the Television Critics Association Press Tour to talk about Citizen Rose, the upcoming E! docuseries that has chronicled her life in its eventful recent months. "And I think this is our opportunity to really lay into their friendship and understand them as human beings and really kind of peel the layers behind them". But when asked about his alleged sightings in Switzerland, with its lax laws on sex crimes, McGowan scoffed at the term: "I wish they would look at him as a huge thief and punish him as such".

Doctors ordered an ultrasound but that turned up nothing, she was then sent for a CT scan which revealed blood clots in her lungs. No one talks about the low moments -the pressure you feel, the incredible let down every time you hear the baby cry.

Fielding questions from a packed room of reporters, she was by turns smart, funny, fierce and vulnerable, dropping quotes from the animated film "Monsters, Inc.", referencing the ACT UP movement and expressing her desire to "smash the 1%".

McGowan has accused Weinstein of rape. "I don't respect those who don't respect", she says, too.

The series, for McGowan, is just one milestone in her story.

In addition to this television show, McGowan also has her book fearless coming out January 30th the same date as the premiere for the show, which will be the beginning of a five-part docuseries chronicling her life as she navigates a post-Harvey Weinstein world. "This is reality", she said. "It's not important for me to be seen as anything; I'm happy to live a private existence... As I ready my book, 'Brave, ' I realized I wanted to show how we can heal through art even when being hounded by evil", the actress stated.

She has been at the forefront of a massive global movement leading women to come forward with their own experiences of sexual violence and harassment.
