Another victim of Harvey Weinstein has come forward to share her story with RadarOnline.com, alleging the movie mogul suddenly stripped naked after showing up to her apartment, leaving her terrified and desperate to escape.
Dulany, 50, told Radar in an exclusive interview that the alleged traumatizing incident with Weinstein occurred in New York City in the winter of 1996, when she was in her late 20s.

Weinstein, 65, then invited Dulany to dinner, offering to pick her up from her apartment in the West Village. Dulany said yes, and the movie mogul, who arrived early, came up to her apartment as she was finishing getting ready.
