Former magazine editor and “Morning Joe” frequenter Tina Brown is making the rounds about her new book: The Vanity Fair Diaries, 1983-1992. 

Why not trash noted Hollywood perv Harvey Weinstein in the process?

Everyone else has.

She does have a vivid relation to Weinstein — her failed Talk mag was bankrolled by Weinstein’s Miramax.

In a Q&A with The Hollywood Reporter, Brown dishes on Weinstein. She even gives him unsolicited advice about a possible name for his memoir should he ever write one: ‘Monster.’

Here are just some of the ways she castrated Weinstein in the interview.

She called him “erratic” and “insane” and “sleazy.” She said he made her cry repeatedly.

Brown shared that he has a really bizarre fear of the press.

“He is very secretive and paranoid, hugely jumpy about his press,” she said. “The thinnest skin of anyone I’ve worked with. He spent hours doing forensic digs on anyone who gave him a remotely negative quote.”

Here’s Brown’s tart advice for the salvation of Weinstein’s soul:

“I don’t know what the hell he’ll do after such an epic fall. The way things look now, he may even end up behind bars. He should write a book titled Monster and deal head-on with the struggle in his own soul and person between the man who had such passion for quality on the screen, the kid who loved French art films and the gross, bullying predator he was as well. How the Beast won so completely over beauty. It would be amazing to read such a book. It may be his only possible crack at a legacy after all the pain he has caused.”
