Hailey Baldwin Leather Weather? ... Hell YEAH!

10/17/2017 2:20 PM PDT

Hailey Baldwin is hell-bent on leather ... even in hellish-like weather.

The model was seen rocking an almost fully leather ensemble Tuesday in Bev Hills, where temps are supposed to reach the upper 80s.

That's not a problem for Hailey, apparently -- she was decked out in leather Bermuda shorts and a leather jacket ... plus heels, of course. We're told the look is from WHYTE STUDIO SS18.

On a positive note, she did manage to show some skin even under all the cow ... always a good thing, if you ask us.

Looking fine at 86 degrees ... no sweat.

Sean Avery Gets Sweet Deal In Rock Throwing & Drug Possession Case

10/17/2017 11:59 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sean Avery got a sweet deal in his drug possession and criminal mischief case ... and if he keeps his nose clean ... it'll be off his record.

Back in September '15, Avery -- who played 10 seasons in the NHL -- was arrested in Southampton Village, NY after allegedly throwing rocks at speeding cars. Cops said they also found prescription pain medication on him.

The ex-NHL star was arrested and charged with criminal mischief and 2 counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance -- all misdemeanors.

Avery -- who was facing jail time -- caught a break ... accepting a deal that will see the charges dismissed if he can go 45 days without getting in trouble, according to Southhampton PD.

He ain't totally in the clear ... Avery does have to pay $746.25 in damages.

Anne Frank Center Anne Frank Halloween Costume?! Do We Even Need to Say It?

10/17/2017 10:30 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Some genius thought Holocaust victim Anne Frank would make one helluva Halloween costume for kids -- but the institution named for Anne is just glad the company behind it got a clue. Eventually.

Online retailer HalloweenCostumes.com rightfully caught major flak Monday for selling a "WW2 Anne Frank Girls Costume." The backlash was so swift and severe they pulled the tone-deaf item from their site ... which featured this highly-offensive costume description. 

A rep for the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect -- a nonprofit supporting her legacy -- tells TMZ ... HalloweenCostumes.com's gimmick is offensive and trivializes Anne's suffering and the suffering of millions during the Holocaust.

The AFC says there are more appropriate ways to commemorate Anne's legacy, and it's happy the costume was yanked. HalloweenCostumes.com has apologized for the stunt, but c'mon.

Bill Bellamy Harvey Weinstein Has a Right to Fight

EXCLUSIVE

Bill Bellamy has a soft spot for Harvey Weinstein.

We got Bill at LAX Monday where he said a lot of what the fallen mogul did was good ... he built the empire from which he's now been banished. He says the success of TWC was built off the back of Harvey.

Bill's also got sympathy for the victims and Harvey's kids, but you gotta listen ... he's got Harvey's back in his fight to get his old job at The Weinstein Company.

Kathy Griffin I'm Blacklisted!!! Here's My Proof ...

10/16/2017 1:55 PM PDT

Kathy Griffin claims Hollywood's giving her the shaft, and an email exchange about a speaking engagement she was initially offered proves it.

Kathy says The Hollywood Reporter invited her to speak at its annual Women in Entertainment Power 100 event this year. She posted the email they sent on Sept. 26 offering her the gig -- but just last week she was told it's a no-go. Kathy posted that email as well ... including her response, "Offer rescinded. Good times."

The comedian says she's still reeling from her severed Trump head photo shoot. She says, "I just want to make you laugh, even though I don't have one single day of paid work ahead of me in the United States for the rest of my life."

It's unclear if the change is Trump-related -- we've reached out to The Hollywood Reporter.

Worth noting though -- Kathy was notified last Thursday she'd no longer be speaking. That was just 4 days after she entered a fundraising gig while wearing a Trump mask and waving both middle fingers.

Harvey Weinstein to Howard Stern Producers Don't Get Sex with Stars Like the Good Ole Days

10/16/2017 7:07 AM PDT

Howard Stern asked Harvey Weinstein a question about having sex with Hollywood actresses that was eerily dead-on ... and Weinstein lied right to his face.

Howard pulled up the 2014 interview Monday morning on his show. In the clip Howard asks Weinstein if he ever got to experience "the mogul aspect" -- meaning having actresses throw themselves at him for a shot at Oscar-winning roles.

Weinstein denied having any such opportunity ... then Howard rephrased, "You can't walk into the room, pull your pants off and say 'Okay, honey let's talk business.'"

It's pretty much exactly the scene dozens of Weinstein's accusers have described. Makes ya think Howard had heard what was Hollywood's worst-kept secret. From Seth MacFarlane's 2013 Oscar nominations joke to Courtney Love ... the allegations were hardly under wraps at that point.

Weinstein claimed he didn't do it, but said others in showbiz were still scoring sexual favors.

James Corden Sorry for the Bad Weinstein Jokes

10/15/2017 1:13 PM PDT
Breaking News

James Corden is apologizing for making light of the Harvey Weinstein scandal with tasteless jokes he made onstage ... and after Rose McGowan teared into him online.

Corden issued an apology Sunday saying "To be clear, sexual assault is no laughing matter. I was not trying to make light of Harvey’s inexcusable behavior, but to shame him, the abuser, not his victims. I am truly sorry for anyone offended, that was never my intention."

The "Late Late Show" star caught a ton of flak this weekend for jokes he cracked while hosting the amfAR Gala on Friday in L.A.

Corden's comments were met with a lot of groans and little laughs, but he persisted and kept the offensive Weinstein jokes coming through the night. One of his biggest critics was Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan, who called Corden a "MOTHERF****** PIGLET"  on Twitter.

If there's one thing we've learned this week ... it's that Rose knows no filter ... and takes no prisoners on the subject of Weinstein. Seems Corden knows that all too well now. 

Lana Del Rey Don't Believe Your Ears ... My Sexy Song's Not About Weinstein

10/15/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lana Del Rey's 2012 track about preferring older men is NOT about Harvey Weinstein ... despite what people's ears are leading them to believe.

Lana's song, "Cola," features the lyrics ... "I got a taste for men who are older / It's always been, so it's no surprise," and is followed by the line, "Harvey's in the sky with diamonds and he's making me crazy" -- or so people think.

Even the top search results for the lyrics back up what people think, that the song references Harvey.  

Sources close to Del Rey tell us the song is not linked to Weinstein or any Harvey for that matter. They say the actual lyrics go this way ... "Ah he's in the sky with diamonds." We've checked the album's digital booklet ... and the lyrics reference "Ah he's," not "Harvey." 

Listen for yourself ... sure sounds like there's a "v" sound.

Drake Bell Quit Throwing Stuff, Punk Kids ... I Will Stop This Concert!!!

10/15/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Drake Bell got totally pissed off at a crowd of high schoolers who hurled balls at him -- then fired back at them with a tongue-lashing worthy of your old homeroom teacher.

The "Drake & Josh" star's band was rocking the Northwest School of the Arts in Charlotte when the crowd got restless, and cleaned out a nearby ball pit. Sources at the school tell us Drake opened with songs from his new album which nobody knew. Major party foul for the kids, who started firing the balls onstage.

The video's hysterical ... DB reached his boiling point while playing the "Drake & Josh" theme, and whipped a ball back at the crowd -- then stopped the show to shame them.

Future advice for Drake: play the hits, bro. Just the hits.

Mexican Soap Star Eduardo Yanez Under Criminal Investigation For Slapping Reporter

10/12/2017 10:31 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mexican soap star Eduardo Yanez is under criminal investigation for viciously slapping a reporter during a red carpet event ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Univision reporter Paco Fuentes filed a police report with the LAPD, claiming assault and battery. 

The slap was captured on video. Yanez lost it after Fuentes tried shaming him by saying his son had to set up a GoFundMe account to pay for car repairs because Yanez wouldn't. Yanez and his son have a strained relationship that became very public back in June after Yanez's son accused him on Twitter of being a drug addict, racist and woman abuser.

We're told the investigation is not complete. If charges are filed against Yanez and he's convicted, he would face a maximum of 6 months in jail.

Yanez apologized early Thursday saying, "I want to ask for a sincere apology to the public and to the person affected by my action. It was not right. My private life is not for sale."

NeNe Leakes Dropped from Xscape Tour Over Rape 'Joke' to Heckler

10/12/2017 9:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

NeNe Leakes will no longer be hosting the Xscape reunion tour after dropping a disgusting rape clapback at a heckler during one of her stand-up gigs.

Xscape released a statement Thursday morning saying they were "dismayed" by NeNe's remarks. Although NeNe apologized, Xscape emphasized they came to the decision as supporters of all women, and stand by all female rape victims.

They added, "This tour is for and about our fans and we want to provide an entertaining and enjoyable experience for every single person who attends." They also wished NeNe the best as she "navigates this very difficult period."

NeNe got booed last weekend in Oakland when she said she hoped a heckler got raped by their Uber driver.

The 'Real Housewives' star apologized later saying she regretted uttering the words, especially as she is an abuse victim herself. 

Ben Affleck 'Groping' Was All On Camera and I Liked It ... Canadian Host Says

Exclusive Details

Ben Affleck did NOTHING wrong by holding and caressing a TV host in 2004, 'cause it was nothing but a gag for cameras ... according to the woman herself.

We spoke to Anne-Marie Losique -- who was aggressively snuggled by Ben in the interview that surfaced amid the Harvey Weinstein scandal -- and she has zero gripes. She's aware many people see it as inappropriate, but stresses all of the heavy flirting ONLY happened on camera.

She says it was a thing she and Ben always did when she interviewed him. Anne-Marie adds ... when the camera was off, Ben was totally professional.

As we reported ... Ben apologized Wednesday to ex-'TRL' host Hilarie Burton for groping her breast in 2003. He's said nothing about the Anne-Marie clip, and based on everything she says ... there's no reason for him to do so.

O.T. Genasis Your Car is Way Too Scratched ... You Need to Cut Someone!

10/12/2017 7:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

O.T. Genasis went from 0-100 REAL QUICK after his car got dinged up at the club, and some guy handed him a knife to vent his fury.

We got O.T. Wednesday night leaving Project Club LA where he found his 2018 Rolls-Royce scratched and dented. Understandably, he was HOT as fish grease at the valet for blowing his "one job," and also at everyone in his crew.

And just as he started to calm down, some dude handed O.T. a blade to handle his biz! It's a crazy scene.

BTW ... turns out the scratch wasn't the valet's fault. There was a gunshot scare an hour earlier, and fleeing patrons knocked the doorman's stand into O.T.'s whip. Oops? We're told the club covered the damage.
