Harvey Weinstein sure bets a lot.
From the end of Cindy Adams' column in Monday's NY Post:
Nov. 8, 2007, Mel Brooks' "Young Frankenstein" opened. Investor Harvey Weinstein bet me $10,000 it would run five years. I said, "No . . . nyet . . . nisht." The closing notice was posted last week. His check arrived Friday. Harvey, that money's going to the ASPCA. Animals have no voice. It is we who must help them. Your 10 grand will go for those helpless homeless creatures we love. Thanks. Pleasure to do business with you.
At least it was only $10,000. In September Harvey lost a $1 million bet with Nikki Finke.
