Harvey Weinstein Au Revoir Legion d’Honneur! FR Prez Revoking Award

10/15/2017 12:32 PM PDT
Breaking News

Harvey Weinstein's crumbling rep is now an international affair -- France plans to strip him of an honor they hand out to stand-up guys ... which their Prez says he ain't anymore.

Emmanuel Macron announced Sunday that France was moving to revoke Weinstein's Legion of Honor -- the highest French order of merit that can be bestowed for military or civil acts. Weinstein got the distinction in March 2012.

As we reported ... Weinstein just got expelled from The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences this weekend as well.

Up until now, France was saying they were only considering revoking Weinstein's Legion of Honor in the wake of multiple accusations of sexual harassment and assault. 

Looks like they've turned the corner on the issue ... Macron says he's already asked the French Academy to begin the process of stripping Weinstein. 

Harvey Weinstein Ouster From Academy Fake Outrage?

10/15/2017 7:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences expressed its outrage by kicking Harvey Weinsteinout of the org, but the question ... is this honest indignation or PR?

Bill Cosby is still a member in good standing, and the Academy has been silent as a church mouse for more than a year after more than 60 women have accused him of rape, date rape, sexual assault and child sexual abuse. 

Ditto Roman Polanski, who raped a 13-year-old in 1977.  In fact, the Academy bestowed on him Best Director in 2003 for "The Pianist," and the likes of Meryl Streep gave him a standing ovation. 

In expelling Weinstein, the Academy said it wanted to "send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over." 

The question ... did they know about Weinstein's antics for years, and were they complicit?

Check out some of the evidence ... 

COURTNEY LOVE, 2005, PUBLICLY WARNS ACTRESSES, STAY AWAY FROM WEINSTEIN

 ANGIE EVERHARDT, 10 YEARS AGO SHE SAYS WEINSTEIN ASSAULTED HER ON A BOAT DURING A FILM FESTIVAL. SHE TOLD EVERYONE ON BOARD AND THEY LAUGHED IT OFF.

WEINSTEIN'S ANTICS WERE SUCH COMMON KNOWLEDGE, BACK IN 2012 "30 ROCK" JOKED ABOUT IT.

AND SETH MCFARLANE TOOK A SHOT AT WEINSTEIN DURING THE 2013 OSCAR NOMS.

So when the Academy talks about "complicity" ... are they talking about others, or themselves?

Exclusive Details

Artie Lange never made it to his show in Ohio this weekend -- but ya can't blame the guy ... he stayed grounded on doctor's orders. 

Sources close to Artie tell TMZ ... he wasn't feeling well Saturday ahead of his comedy show in Akron, Ohio because of high sugar levels. We're told he suffers from this due to his diabetes.

Rather than risk further injury by taking a flight from his home in New Jersey to Ohio, we're told Artie followed his doctor's instructions to hit a hospital and skip the show. Sources say Artie had a bad reaction the last time he flew with high blood sugar, so it was a no-brainer.

Artie checked into a local ER in NJ and we're told he's feeling better now.

Woody Allen 'Sad' For Weinstein Hopefully No Witch Hunts!

10/15/2017 10:47 AM PDT
Breaking News

6:25 PM PT -- Woody Allen has clarified his "sad" comment over Harvey Weinstein in a statement to Variety ... saying " When I said I felt sad for Harvey Weinstein; I thought it was clear the meaning was because he is a sad, sick man ...Lest there be any ambiguity, this statement clarifies my intention and feelings."

Woody Allen says he feels "sad" for Harvey Weinstein after being accused of sexual harassment and assault -- but he also hopes no witch hunts come out of this.

Woody told the BBC Saturday that he felt for everyone involved in the Weinstein scandal -- including the women making the allegations, and Harvey himself. 

He explained ... "The whole Harvey Weinstein thing is very sad for everybody involved. Tragic for the poor women that were involved, sad for Harvey that (his) life is so messed up."

Allen -- who's been accused of sexually abusing children -- went on to say he'd heard rumors about Weinstein before, but never took them seriously because he was only interested in making his own movies while working with the guy. 

And while Allen says he hopes this can be a teachable moment in Hollywood, he also doesn't "want it to lead to a witch hunt atmosphere, a Salem atmosphere, where every guy in an office who winks at a woman is suddenly having to call a lawyer to defend himself." 

Pressing his luck?

Joe Giudice G.E.D. & 45 lbs. Slimmer In Prison!!!

10/15/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joe Giudice is following his wife Teresa's lead when it comes to keeping busy in prison ... he's dropping lbs and changing his life ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Joe's lost 45 pounds since he began serving his sentence 18 months ago for bankruptcy fraud. He's been working out nonstop and his diet has changed dramatically.

He's also flexing his brain muscles by getting his GED. His syllabus includes the basics ... English, math, science and social studies.

You'll recall, Teresa also slimmed down during her 11-month stint behind bars. Joe got more time ...  41 months, so he's barely at the halfway mark. If things keep going the way they are he'll be barely recognizable when he's finally out.

Prison ... it does a body good.

Steve Wynn, the hotel mogul who is the kingpin of Las Vegas, is worried there is no quick fix to keeping people safe in Vegas or for that matter anywhere else.

SNL Weekend Update Weinstein Belongs in Prison

10/15/2017 6:42 AM PDT

Harvey Weinstein was torn apart on SNL Saturday night ... and everything was fair game.

Colin Jost and Michael Che skewered the fallen mogul, from his appearance to his conduct.  The crowd applauded when Jost scoffed at the notion Weinstein was going to rehab, saying the proper facility had bars and barbed wire.

Their delivery is more than comedic ... you hear indignation and even anger in their voices. 

As for Weinstein asking for a second chance ... if SNL is a bellwether, good luck with that.

Blac Chyna More Flags, More Fun For King Cairo's Birthday!!!

10/15/2017 7:52 AM PDT

Blac Chyna and Tyga have apparently made great strides in the co-parenting department, because they presented a united front Saturday as they took their son King Cairo to Six Flags Magic Mountain.

It's the kid's 5th birthday, and this time there weren't dueling parties.  The nanny came along for the ride, and some of King Cairo's friends tagged along as well.

Here's a theory ... Chyna's in a massive war with Rob Kardashian and his family, and it's hard to fight on 2 fronts at the same time so her issues with Rob may have made Tyga look like a picnic.

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.
