Harvey Weinstein Oprah's Called to Support Me Her Team Says BS

10/14/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein says Oprah Winfrey called him to say she was ready to come out and publicly support him, but Oprah's people say it's simply not true.

Our sources say Harvey has repeatedly told his team and friends that Oprah called him earlier this week and said he needed to speak out and defend himself, and when he did she would be right there supporting him. We're told Harvey has said a number of powerful people have called to voice support, but he singled out Oprah over and over.

Oprah's spokesperson tells TMZ, "Oprah has not spoken to Harvey Weinstein directly. Someone from his team reached out to her to see if she would talk to him, and she said she would if it was for an interview. There are no plans for an interview at this time."

Oprah's rep tells us Oprah was interested in doing a "60 Minutes" interview with Weinstein, but made it clear, "She was only interested if he'd look in the mirror and give her the honest, bone marrow truth."

Oprah posted a statement Thursday, saying, "I've been processing the accounts of Harvey Weinstein's behavior and haven't been able to find the words to articulate the magnitude of the situation."

She then quotes filmmaker James Schamus, who said, "This is the story of one predator and his many victims; but it is also a story about an overwhelming systemic enabling, and until that story is fully told we will fall far short of stopping future depredations on a similar scale."

Kim Zolciak I'm Not Letting NeNe Off the Hook For Pulling Race Card

10/14/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Zolciak says NeNe Leakes is getting what she deserves ... but it's not enough -- her 'RHOA' co-star still needs to pay the price for what she said about her family.

We got Kim and her daughter Brielle Biermann at LAX Thursday, and after Kim throws some extra shade at NeNe for getting dropped from the Xscape reunion tour ... she goes off on her for bringing accusations of racism into the mix.

Kim then doubles down on what we knew -- she's lawyered up and plans to go after Leakes if she doesn't take back the "#racisttrash" and "KKK" comments about her family.

Seems like the clock's ticking too.

Brody Jenner Distant from Kardashian Fam

10/14/2017 7:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Brody Jenner seems happy for Kim, Khloe and Kylie -- who are all expecting -- but it also seems he's estranged from them.

We got the perennially handsome Jenner at LAX Friday, and he spilled some tea about the famous trio, 2 of whom are his step sisters. Brody says he hasn't spoken to any of them since TMZ announced their pregnancies.

Gotta say ... that's a big sign all is not well. As you know, Brody's father Caitlyn is estranged from the Kardashian brood, and it seems like his son is right behind.

Katie Holmes Well Trained

10/14/2017 7:32 AM PDT

Katie Holmes is not above hangin' with the plebs ... she sat scrunched Friday between 2 dudes on a super crowded New York City subway.

Kate was solo in Soho, shopping up up a storm ... and then she took the R train during rush hour up to her swanky pad on the Upper West Side of the Big Apple.

And check this out ... she actually chilled to the point where she caught some ZZZ's during the ride. 

Marry that girl, Jamie.

Larry King 'Why Would I Wish Weinstein Harm?'

10/14/2017 6:51 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Larry King knows Harvey Weinstein well and is sad over revelations of sexual harassment and sexual assault, but he thinks it's crazy for people to wish Weinstein ill.

We got Larry and wife Shawn Friday night in WeHo leaving Craig's, and it was apparent the talk show King was reeling from the news ... which brings us to Shawn.

Watch and listen closely to the video ... she says of the sexual harassment stories, "It was very well known," and then she catches herself and says she didn't know. How would she know it was very well known if she was in the dark?

This underscores the craziness of the party line ... that no one knew this was happening.  One of the few people willing to say people in Hollywood knew for years was Angie Everhardt, who went on TMZ Live Friday and said Weinstein masturbated in front of her on a boat, and she told EVERYBODY.

Melissa Etheridge Delightful Mug Shot in Drug Bust ... 70s Rocker Arrested Too

10/14/2017 12:30 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Melissa Etheridge didn't pass the K-9 sniffing test ... Todd Rundgren did, but they both got arrested for drugs on the U.S.-Canadian border.

Melissa and Todd were both pinched -- on separate dates -- in North Dakota after their tour buses were stopped by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. According to docs, Melissa's bus was returning to the U.S. on August 17. After a K-9 unit detected possible drugs, agents found marijuana oil.

Cops say Melissa said she uses it to manage pain from cancer. That's legal in Cali, where she lives, but in N.D. it's still a no-no. She was booked for possession of a controlled substance ... took a super pleasant mug shot, and pleaded not guilty.

As for 1970s rocker Rundgren -- Customs nabbed him on September 9 when his bus was stopped. The dogs missed it, but agents found 2 vapes and containers with liquid THC.

Hello, it's me ... I just got booked for possession of drugs and paraphernalia.

Dick Ebersol, Susan St. James Unlike Weinstein ... Our Hook-Up Was Consensual

10/14/2017 7:24 AM PDT

Dick Ebersol, the legendary co-creator of "SNL" who ran both NBC and NBC Sports, says his story of hooking up with an actress is WAY DIFFERENT from Harvey Weinstein's, starting with the fact it was consensual.

We got Dick, a long-standing show biz titan, at LAX Friday with wife/actress Susan St. James. Dick met Susan when she guest hosted SNL in 1981 and sparks flew. They've now been married for 36 years.

They've got a thing or 2 to say about the industry and whether the Weinstein scandal will unearth other mogul misdeeds.

Check out Susan's old monologue below.

Dodgers vs Cubs Smokin' Hot WAGS of the NLCS ... Baseball Babe Showdown

10/14/2017 12:20 AM PDT

As the Dodgers and Cubs get set for the NLCS, let's take a moment to stand and salute the insane hotness of their significant others.

L.A. and Chicago have 2 of the best teams in baseball -- but these pics prove their players are waaay bigger winners off the field than on it (no offense, MLB). 

In the blue corner, we got the WAGs of Justin Turner, Alex Wood and Kike Hernandez.

In the other blue corner, the ladies of Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Jason Heyward and many more.

You're welcome.

Ariel Winter Niece Gets in Family Biz Kid Ain't Playing at $12k per Episode!!!

10/14/2017 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ariel Winter's niece ain't about the lemonade-stand life ... not when the 8-year-old wants to ball out like her super famous aunt.

Skylar Gray -- who idolizes Ariel -- landed her first big TV gig playing young Abby on the CBS sitcom, "Me, Myself & I," and already she's making more dough in one year than most recent college grads.

According to docs obtained by TMZ, Skylar's making $12,500 per episode and she's guaranteed at least 6 episodes. If she appears in all 13 episodes, Skylar stands to make up to $162,500.

Cross your fingers, kid ... because if the show's a hit, Skylar could make just over $200k that year ... as a 8-year-old.

Must be nice.
