Constance Wu was spotted smiling and waving to fans following her appearance on ABC’s daytime talk show The View in New York on Tuesday.

Wearing a vibrant red sweater dress that hit just above her knee, the Crazy Rich Asians star rocked sheer black nylons and knee-high black boots as she made her way from the studio to an awaiting car.

Wu, 40, has been making the rounds on podcasts and talk shows in the last couple of weeks in anticipation of the release of her memoir Making a Scene, published on Tuesday.

According to People.com, her new memoir puts forth allegations of rape and on-set sexual harassment in addition to reflecting on what motherhood means for her career.

The actress details how she bounced back from a suicide attempt and explains she is enjoying her life as a new mom who is also starring in the Amazon Prime Video series The Terminal List.

Last week, Wu accused a senior producer from Fresh Off The Boat of sexual harassment and intimidation.

The show, which depicted a Taiwanese-American family living in Florida in the 1990s, went into production in 2014 and eventually premiered on ABC the following February to positive critical reception.

Wu maintains that the producer started showing those controlling behaviors in the first season, which included ‘demanding that she run all her business matters past him and telling her what to wear.’

‘Fresh Off the Boat was my first-ever TV show,’ the actress told the Times before explaining her mindset at the time. ‘I was thrown into this world. I don’t have parents in the industry. And because I was 30, people thought I knew what I was doing. It made me paranoid and embarrassed.’

Wu, whose real-life parents emigrated from Taiwan, revealed to the Times that the producer’s inappropriate behaviors escalated when they attended a sporting event. He allegedly ‘placed his hand on her thigh, his hand ultimately grazing her crotch.’

The actress confronted the man and asked him to stop, and eventually, they both just tried to move on past the incident.

‘I kept my mouth shut for a really long time about a lot of sexual harassment and intimidation that I received the first two seasons of the show,’ the Virginia native said during a panel at the Atlantic Festival last Friday.

She explained, ‘Because, after the first two seasons, once it was a success, once I was no longer scared of losing my job, that’s when I was able to start saying “no” to the harassment, “no” to the intimidation, from this particular producer.’

Ultimately, she decided not to go public and identify the man to avoid ‘staining the reputation of the show.’

Fresh Off The Boat would go on to air for six seasons, ending in February 2020, after earning the distinction of being the first series featuring an all-Asian American main cast to broadcast over 100 episodes.

So far, Fresh Off the Boat representatives and 20th Television have not publicly responded to any of the accusations.
