NEW YORK, Nov 26 — What one would give to have been a fly on the wall at this dinner party!

Three Harvey Weinstein rape accusers, Rose McGowan, Annabella Sciorra and Asia Argento, met for a Thanksgiving dinner yesterday catered by world-renowned chef Anthony Bourdain.

Bourdain, Argento’s boyfriend and host of the popular food and travel series Parts Unknown, documented the experience via Twitter yesterday.

“It was an honour to cook for this meeting of the minds,” he wrote, along with a photo of Argento and McGowan.

All three women shared the same photo to their social accounts, with McGowan calling the evening “magical” while Argento tweeted: “They’re gonna come true.”

Bourdain has been outspoken about Weinstein after Argento revealed that the Hollywood honcho allegedly raped her when she was 21.

“I am proud and honoured to know you. You just did the hardest thing in the world,” Bourdain said in a touching post after she shared her story with The New Yorker.

“Can we use the word ‘rapist’ now,” the CNN Parts Unknown host then questioned.

All three women — along with dozens of others — have claimed that Weinstein sexually harassed or assaulted them over the past three decades, and Weinstein has been expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Criminal investigations into Weinstein are underway in Los Angeles, New York and London.

Weinstein has denied having non-consensual sex with anyone.
