Harvey Weinstein Completes 1-Week Outpatient Program Psychologist Says, 'He Took it Seriously'

10/20/2017 5:09 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

5:43 PM PT -- A Weinstein rep just called to say the plan has now changed. Weinstein will stay in Arizona for another month or so because he doesn't want excessive distractions and wants to continue working with his doctors. The outpatient program which Weinstein entered still ends Saturday.

Harvey Weinstein is leaving Arizona Saturday after completing a one-week program treating various psychological issues, and Weinstein's psychologist tells TMZ the fallen mogul took it seriously.

Weinstein gave his treating psychologist permission to speak with TMZ. The psychologist asked us not to use his name, but he was a key member of the team treating Weinstein.

The psychologist says Weinstin's program lasted 1 week, and involved "intensive therapy" on an outpatient basis. 

The psychologist says he helped Weinstein focus on "dealing with his anger, his attitude toward others, boundary work and the beginnings of work on empathy." He says Weinstein was "invested in the program."

He disputes reports that Weinstein didn't take his sessions seriously and that he ranted that there was a conspiracy to get him. The psychologist says Weinstein "was able to focus on his therapy despite a ton of distractions," adding, "He showed up for all the meetings and was fully engaged."

We're told Weinstein had only one group session at the beginning of his treatment but doctors quickly decided there were confidentiality concerns, so every other session was individual and private.

As for reports that Weinstein was angry, the psychologist says there was anger that manifested itself, but other patients at the facility wouldn't have been privy to it so reports of Weinstein spinning out of control were "just not true."

The psychologist says, "There were things that triggered [Weinstein's] anger and our job was to help him recognize where it was coming from and how to control it. But he was not venting about some conspiracy to get him. It was an appropriate display of anger."

Weinstein will leave Arizona Saturday and begin "significant outpatient therapy" when he returns home.

As for whether he's made progress, the psychologist hedged, saying, "Time will tell."

Bethenny Frankel Ex Jason Hoppy to Cop Plea In Stalking/Harassment Case

10/21/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bethenny Frankel's ex-husband, Jason Hoppy, will cop a plea Monday in his stalking/aggravated harassment case, but Bethenny is still scared ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Jason will get an ACD .. Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal. Short story ... he has to stay clear of Bethenny for 6 months and obey all laws. If he harasses her in any way, the D.A. will throw the book at him.

Bethenny has an order of protection against Jason, prohibiting him from contacting her. That order stays in place for the 6 months. After that, it goes away.

If Hoppy lives on the straight and narrow for the 6 months, all charges against him will be dismissed. 

Sources connected to Bethenny tell us she's super worried about what will happen after 6 months, because she's scared of Hoppy.

The case doesn't end the conflict. The 2 are still embroiled in a custody war, which will almost certainly be resolved by a judge.

EXCLUSIVE

Gucci Mane gave his mother and brother a fierce cold shoulder because they were not invited to his lavish wedding ... so says Gucci's youngest brother.

Nate tells us he has no idea why the rapper left him and their mom, Vicky, off the guest list for $1 million affair at Miami's Four Seasons Hotel.

Nate, who's gotten shout-outs from Guwop on tracks like "Rude," says he's happy for his big brother but sad no fancy invitation was sent his way. Adding insult to injury -- another brother, Duke, was Gucci's best man.

Demi Lovato can fight -- in fact, she's such a beast in the gym, UFC champ Tyron Woodley is convinced she could hold her own in a real MMA bout. 

Lovato has been training her ass off at the Unbreakable gym in L.A. for more than a year -- and owner Jay Glazer has previously told us she WANTS to fight for real. 

Well, Tyron says ... IT'S TIME! 

The UFC star spelled it out on this week's "Hollywood Beatdown w/ Tyron Woodley" -- where he said he's been in the gym with Demi and saw her fighting skills first hand.

Rocky III Backup Statue Hits Auction Block ... Could Fetch $1 Mil

EXCLUSIVE

Wanna buy the ORIGINAL Rocky Balboa sculpture from "Rocky III?"

Too bad, it's not for sale. But the BACKUP statue is about to hit the auction block. 

The artist behind the piece, A. Thomas Schomberg, made two versions of the iconic sculpture for the 1982 flick ... #1 was used in the movie and #2 was a backup in case anything bad happened. 

The original sculpture from the movie is still in Philly. The backup had been on display for years in the San Diego Hall of Champions, but that place closed down and now Rocky #2 is for sale. 

We spoke with a rep for SCP Auctions -- which has auctioned everything from game-worn Babe Ruth uniforms to Michael Jordan game-used shoes -- and they're expecting the Rocky statue to fetch somewhere between $500k and $1 mil. 

Still interested? Hope you've got a freight truck -- 'cause the bronze Balboa stands at nearly 9-feet tall and weighs 1,800 pounds. 

Bidding ends November 4 ... good luck!!

Conor McGregor might have to wait ... another huge fighter says he's gonna take a chunk out of Floyd Mayweather's ass if he returns, and this guy is a boxing superstar.

The guy is WBC super welterweight champ Jermell Charlo, who's fresh off a devastating first round knockout of Erickson Lubin a couple of weeks ago.

Charlo hit the Lakers game Thursday night with Brandon Watson -- co-owner of the Team Watson Boxing Gym in L.A. -- and told us if Floyd (who's been working out) is serious about a comeback, he's down.

For the record, Floyd and Charlo are pretty good buddies -- and Charlo respects Floyd immensely -- but wouldn't you fight your pal for a $100 million payday???

Mandalay Bay Vegas Shooter's Room Off Limits ... So is Entire 32nd Floor

10/20/2017 3:56 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Las Vegas shooter's 32nd-floor suite at Mandalay Bay is still completely shut off to the public, and in fact ... the whole floor's on lockdown.

One of our guys hit up the hotel Friday to check out the situation with Stephen Paddock's room after reports the hotel planned to never rent it out again. This video shows you can't even get close to the suite.

Elevators won't allow guests to get off on the 32nd floor, and security guards are stationed in stairwells to block access.

Law enforcement sources tell us Vegas PD completed the investigation of the suite, and they've turned it back over to the resort -- but it's clear Mandalay Bay's not ready to let morbid sightseers gawk at it.

Butt -- it's what's for dinner. 

'Love and Hip Hop Hollywood' Drops Hazel-E!!! But Not Over Homophobic Rant, Axe Fell 2 Weeks Ago

10/20/2017 1:12 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Love and Hip Hop Hollywood" is done with Hazel-E -- she's been dropped from the hit show, but producers claim it's NOT because she said all gays should burn in hell.

A spokesperson for VH1 and the show's producers, Monami and Eastern, say they collectively decided not to pick up Hazel's option for the next season of 'LHHH' -- but the decision was made on Oct. 4. That's a full 2 weeks before Hazel and her boyfriend went on a heinously homophobic social media rant.

Sources connected to production tell us Hazel had already worn out her welcome by the time she made the remark about gays and the Bible. We're told she pissed off producers back in September, during the reunion show taping, which is why they pulled the plug.

As we reported, 'LHH' creator Mona Scott-Young was infuriated by Hazel's verbal attack, and made sure VH1 knew it ... perhaps to squash any possibility of bringing her back.

Harvey Weinstein Accuser's Lawyer Spills Details of Alleged Rape ... In News Conference

Breaking News

The lawyer representing Harvey Weinstein's rape accuser got before microphones today ... the question is why.

David Ring says his client had a "thorough interview" with the LAPD Thursday, and the #1 priority for her is the criminal investigation.

He says she's 38 years old, from Italy where she was an actress. Ring says she had met Weinstein in Rome prior to the alleged 2013 rape, but that was it. He repeated what she told the L.A. Times ... that Weinstein "bullied" his way into her hotel room and raped her.

Ring says the L.A. Times found out about the investigation and confronted him so he talked. He did not explain why he didn't simply say, "no comment."
