Lauren Sivan rose to fame with her racy yoga segment
Lauren Sivan’s Yoga News days are behind her but fans can’t help but reminiscence her infamous yoga segment where she posed in intriguing positions, which garnered her the nickname “The Dancing Shiva.”
The reception was mindblowing. Most of the fan mail to the show included compliments to her yoga sessions with an emphasis on the tattoo she had on her lower back, which viewers jokingly referred to as a “tramp stamp.”
But Lauren seems rather embarrassed by the tape and was reluctant to have it played during her 2013 appearance on Red Eye.
However, the Fox reporter has moved on. She is currently working for KTTV’s 5 pm newscast called Studio 11 L.A.
Lauren Sivan accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment
On October 6, 2017, it was revealed in an Huffington Post report that Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein had sexually harassed Sivan in 2007. Weinstein was fired from his company shortly after and several similar allegations from many actresses including Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie, Rose McGowan, and Cara Delevigne have come forward.
For those asking why I waited?

Sivan later appeared on TODAY where she detailed the horrible incident. Reportedly, Weinstein cornered her, exposed himself and asked her to “be quiet” as he pleasured himself.
“I could not believe what I was witnessing. It was disgusting and kind of pathetic, really. But more than the disgusting act itself, which of course was gross, the demeaning part of it all — that just 20 minutes earlier, he was having this great conversation with me, and I felt so great and flattered by it,” Sivan told Kelly.
