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.

Vegas Hotel Mogul Steve Wynn Keeping People Safe From Terrorists ... 'Helluva Challenge'

10/15/2017 6:59 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

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.

We got Wynn and his wife Saturday night in WeHo leaving Craig's and he made no apologies for the way Mandalay Bay handled the massacre ... he says they did a good job.  Nonetheless, he seems to say lawsuits are inevitable.

Beyond that, Steve acknowledges the difficulty of preventing acts by madmen ... underscoring it by wishing our 25-year-old cameraman well in a scary world.

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.

'Jeopardy' Star Austin Rogers Hollywood Calls After Mad Winning Streak

EXCLUSIVE

Who is ... the smartest bartender in the world. 

Damn right ... it's Austin Rogers, the "Jeopardy" sensation who's now got some serious thinking to do after his impressive 12-game winning streak came to an end Thursday ... because he's now fielding all sorts of tempting offers.

Austin, who won $411,000 during his run, is getting book offers, hosting gigs and that's just for starters.   

Turns out he's been writing a book that could turn him into the next Lin-Manuel Miranda.  

For now, he's keeping his bartender job. He has a good reason ... and then another which involves sexual favors.

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.

Young Kate From 'This Is Us' Whopping Raise For Season 2

10/15/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

10-year-olds can barely get their hands on a crisp $20 bill, but Mackenzie Hancsicsak, who plays Young Kate on "This Is Us," is already hustling $4k pay raises. 

We got ahold of Mackenzie's minors contract for the hit NBC show. It's her first TV role ever and it landed her a $8,210 payday per episode the first season. 

Cut to season 2 ... Mackenzie got a huge bump to $12.5k an episode. That's a lot considering her raise for season 3 won't be as much ... it'll only go up about $500 to $13k an episode.

Still ... that's a lot of $20s.

Catherine Zeta-Jones Good Genes or Good Docs?

10/15/2017 12:10 AM PDT

Catherine Zeta-Jones' good looks are nothing to have reservations about. 

Here's a 27-year-old version of the "Chicago" star at a movie premiere back in 1996 (left) and 21 years later ... the now 48-year-old mother of two -- and the 'Legend of Zorro' babe backstage at NYFW last month (right). 

Fency.

The question is ...

Jennifer Lopez Shakes Ass For Disaster Relief

10/14/2017 7:40 PM PDT

Jennifer Lopez is going all out to help raise money for recent hurricane and earthquake victims ... by shaking her booty for a whopping 13 seconds (we counted)!!!

J Lo just kicked off "SOMOS LIVE!" -- a benefit concert airing on VH1 to aid those affected by the hurricanes in Puerto Rico, the Caribbean and South Florida, as well as the earthquakes in Mexico -- and she kicked it off with a bang.

Lopez also took an apparent shot at Trump over his treatment of Puerto Rico, by saying ... "There are some messes you can't clean up with paper towels."

Live performances in L.A. by J Lo, Mary J. Blige, Jamie Foxx and others, and in Miami by Marc Anthony, DJ Khaled and more are being broadcast while celebs like Kim Kardashian, Debra Messing and Ted Danson work the phone for donations. 

Earlier in the night, Bruno Mars wowed the crowd by singing -- beautifully, of course -- in Spanish

Harvey Weinstein Booted from The Academy

10/14/2017 1:42 PM PDT
Breaking News

Another huge blow for Harvey Weinstein -- The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has kicked him out.

The Oscar winner is no longer part of the Oscar club after the board of governors -- which includes Hollywood royalty like Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks -- met at their headquarters in Beverly Hills Saturday and voted to expel him ... stripping away his lifetime membership.

The Academy issued a statement after the meeting, saying their decision was made 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."

It continued ... "What's at issue here is a deeply troubling problem that has no place in our society. The Board continues to work to establish ethical standards of conduct that all Academy members will be expected to exemplify."

As we've reported ... Weinstein's been fired by his own company and is currently in Arizona for rehab.

He won an Oscar in 1999 for "Shakespeare in Love" and was nominated in 2003 for "Gangs of New York."

More proof of the biggest lie in Hollywood ... that no one knew about the shenanigans of Harvey Weinstein

We found this video -- circa 2005 -- from the red carpet event for the Pamela Anderson Comedy Central Roast. 

Courtney Love is asked by Natasha Leggero if she has advice for young women trying to make it in Hollywood. She hesitates -- fearing what she says could land her in court -- but then goes for it, warning women to decline an invite from Weinstein at a swanky Bev Hills hotel. 

Love was not afraid to be seen in public with Weinstein. Here she is in 2012 with Jessica Chastain, interacting with Harvey Weinstein at the Sunset Tower Hotel.

EXCLUSIVE

Usher let the good times roll -- despite multiple lawsuits against him -- by hitting up a roller skating rink for his birthday ... with some of his most high-profile pals.

The singer was joined by Chris Brown, Wiz KhalifaTy Dolla $ign, DJ Mustard, Omarion and Jermaine Dupri at World on Wheels in L.A. Friday night to celebrate his 39th bday. Sources at the joint tell us Usher's crew rented out the VIP booth ... but rubbed elbows with the public all night on the skating floor.

If the roller rink sounds familiar, it's because Beyonce enjoyed a night there in August.

We're told Usher's party got there around 9 PM and stayed 'til after midnight ... which is when he officially turned 39.

As we reported ... Usher had a busy week dealing with his Georgia herpes lawsuit, but clearly didn't let that get in the way of a good time.
