Jemele Hill 'I Deserved My Suspension' ... Not Mad At ESPN

10/21/2017 8:16 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jemele Hill is breaking her silence -- telling TMZ Sports she doesn't blame ESPN for hitting her with a two week suspension over anti-Jerry Jones tweets saying .. "I put ESPN in a bad spot."

Hill was put in the penalty box for encouraging people upset with Jerry Jones's national anthem policy to boycott his sponsors. ESPN claimed her comment was violation of the networks social media policy. Several of Hills coworkers, celebrities, athletes and activists spoke out against ESPN -- Hill says she appreciates all the support, but believes she was treated fairly by the network. "I deserved a suspension," Hill told us at LAX ... "I violated the policy. Going forward we'll be in a good healthy place." 

As for her public statements against Donald Trump Hill says she won't take back what she said -- but she regrets putting her show in a bad position. As far as moving forward with ESPN, Hill says "I don't feel suppressed. I love ESPN as much as ever. I am okay. I feel good." 

We spoke with Hill about a ton of stuff -- which you can see in the raw video below. 

Hill says she will return to work on Monday.

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. 

We're told she's super worried about what will happen after 6 months, because she's scared of Hoppy.  Bethenny's really involved in the hurricane relief efforts -- she's spent lots of time in Puerto Rico since the devastating storm -- which has been a positive force in her life and wants Hoppy in her taillights.

Amber Rose says sex is like vitamins ... you need both at least once a day.

We got 21 Savage's GF Friday leaving e. Baldi in Bev Hills when we asked if she got something special on her birthday -- i.e., sex -- and she said it's just another day when it comes to the bedroom.

She was sketchier on another topic ... Blac Chyna. Amber was on the phone with Chyna during our convo, and when our photog asked about our story that Rob was accusing her of being in a coke-fueled rage the day of the alleged domestic violence incident ... she deflected.

We got Steve, with Corey Gable at his side, leaving Via Alloro Friday in Bev Hills. Our photog asked about the Cuban's rumored run, and Steve is receptive.

Guillermo del Toro I Understand Why Quentin Didn't Blow Whistle on Weinstein

10/21/2017 7:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Guillermo del Toro is a strong defender of Quentin Tarantino, saying he understands why Quentin didn't come forward years earlier to expose Harvey Weinstein.

We got the famed director Friday heading into The Palm in Bev Hills, and he said he gets it ... that Quentin had a relationship with Weinstein, and hindsight isn't reality in Hollywood or anywhere else.

Tarantino, who says he knew of several incidents of Weinstein sexually harassing women, has taken a lot of heat for not coming forward sooner. The reality is ... everyone in Hollywood knows this was talked about for years and years -- for cryin' out loud, multiple jokes were made on TV and even at a televised Oscar ceremony. At least Tarantino's being honest.

As for del Toro, he explains why he would never work for Weinstein ... something he's felt for decades.

Gucci Mane's Brother 'He Didn't Let Me Go to the Wedding' ... Mom Wasn't Invited Either

10/21/2017 12:40 AM PDT
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.

Little bro says the diss sends a clear message, and Keyshia Ka'oir should pay attention.

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!!

EXCLUSIVE

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???

Us too.
