Harvey Weinstein says he's been had by jurors who are pretending to be impartial when in fact they want him locked up and the key thrown away.
Weinstein's lawyer, Arthur Aidala, filed legal docs Friday to further support his motion for a change of venue ... claiming the 12-person jury was comprised of "stealth jurors" who lied during the jury selection process, claiming they could be clean slates when it came to hearing evidence when in fact they held secret prejudices.
The lawyer cites examples of 2 prospective jurors who claimed impartiality but later revealed their feelings on social media. One wrote, "Goodbye Jury Duty. And goodbye Harvey Weinstein. I hope they convict you on all counts...I was told not to talk about the trial if I was a juror...I don't know if it's my past as a lawyer or my past at Disney but I'm free for the next 4 years- unlike Harvey!"
The other prospective juror also took to Facebook, writing, "Ok that was my time on the Weinstein case. Do I get paid? I don't get up before 5 for free. Harvey you cant [sic] act for sh*t with that walker you made it look like a prize on The Price is Right. Also they're gonna crucify you."
The judge has not made a final ruling on the defense motion for a change of venue, but Aidala believes that the issue is "moot" since a 12-person jury has been picked. Opening arguments are set for this week
And, speaking of checkered ... it's a big show of support for her son, who's smack in the middle of the Jeffrey Epstein pedophile scandal after that disastrous TV interview.
Her appearance comes a day after she 86'd the royal titles of Harry and Meghan. It's apparent ... H&M aren't coming back to England anytime soon, and they may be forever outsiders after their move to Canada.
As for Andrew ... he's kept a low profile -- he even missed Christmas Day church services. They were all smiles as they left the church -- of course, in a Bentley.
Mama June is once again unloading valuable property for cash ... this time it's a diamond ring, and we're told she took the very first, seemingly low-ball, offer.
The troubled reality TV star visited a pawn shop called Cash America in Stockbridge, GA on Thursday morning, and brought in a nice diamond ring resembling a wedding or engagement ring ... according to witnesses.
We're told she didn't say much and didn't give a reason why she wanted to sell the ring. Employees didn't ask many questions, though, and offered her $1,500 after a quick examination.
Good enough for June, apparently. We're told she accepted, took her cash and bolted in a pickup truck.
As for the ring ... it's possible it's the one her boyfriend, Geno Doak, gave her in March 2019 on her most recent TV series, "Mama June: From Not to Hot."
Bhad Bhabie is fixing her social media woes with some good old-fashioned retail therapy ... shedding dollars instead of tears.
The "Hi Bich" rapper announced last week she was taking a break from her social accounts thanks to some serious trolling. She wrote, "I'm sorry. I'm not sure what for but whatever y'all are so angry at me for I'm sorry."
Our BB sources tell us she went right from her phone to the jewelry store, scooping up $65,000 in bling in one stop.
The rapper bought a $45,000 Rolex watch with a baby blue dial and 16.5 carats of colorless VVS diamonds. She also got 2 $10,000 diamond bracelets. In other words, she's iced out and then some. Nothing fixes the online blues like some real-life livin' and ballin', huh?
Anyway, there's no official timetable for the rapper's full return to social media ... but when she does, she will certainly come back shining thanks to the new bling.
The ex-"America's Next Top Model" contestant thinks it's crazy body shaming is still a thing in 2020, and she's convinced the hate is just a manifestation of people's lack of confidence in their own bodies.
As you know ... Jillian ignited a huge controversy when she said folks should celebrate Lizzo's music and not her weight. The fitness guru believes Lizzo could be in for serious health issues down the line.
Toccara thinks Jillian's comments are grossly misguided ... she says it's not about weight or body mass because those who don't tip a scale can also run into health problems. Toccara tries to hold her tongue, but she just can't and takes a shot at Jillian.
Bottom line for Toccara ... body shaming oughta be a relic of the past, along with antiquated notions of who is and isn't healthy.
"All these other idiots who don't play basketball and never played basketball, when they say you wanna judge a guy's greatness by number of championships ... they're idiots."
It's safe to say Robert Horry is fed up with NBA fans using rings instead of common sense in debates ... telling TMZ Sports titles don't mean a damn thing when talkin' G.O.A.T.s.
"Here's the thing that people are so stupid about. They measure great players by how many championships they win. It's the stupidest thing," Big Shot Bob told us at the California Strong charity softball game on Sunday.
Of course, the reason we brought it up with Horry is because his old teammate, Kobe Bryant, recently joined the "All The Smoke" podcast and admitted he's "pissed" he didn't catch Michael Jordan in the ring count.
But, Horry says the whole debate over championships is pointless ... 'cause not everyone is able to win in their careers.
"That's like saying Karl Malone, Charles Barkley and Patrick Ewing are not great players."
Horry points out using that logic would make him one of the greatest hoopers to ever walk the earth, considering he's got 7 championships.
Big Shot Bob says Kobe having one less ring than MJ should have ZERO impact on his legacy ... but admits Mamba has always compared himself to Jordan.
We also asked Horry which of his 7 title runs was his favorite ... and you'll have to check out the clip to get his answer.
Martin Lawrence's good looks are here for life!
Here is a 27-year-old version of the 'Bad Boys' star looking his best at the NAACP Image Awards in Pasadena, California back in 1993 (left).
And 27, years later ... The now 54-year-old has been dressing to impress along with his costar. Will Smith, since the two of them have been promoting the "Bad Boys For Life" film together over the last few weeks. This will be the third and final installment of the 'Bad Boys' trilogy. Lawrence was seen rockin' these sweet specs at the premiere of the movie in Hollywood, California earlier this week.
Still got it!
The question is ...
Martin Lawrence ...
Vic Mensa's learning a tough lesson about Cali life -- a little weed is legal, but a little piece of metal could land you in prison ... at least if you're talking brass knuckles. And, we are.
The rapper/punk rocker was riding a motorcycle in Glendale, CA earlier this month when police saw him make an unsafe turn ... according to law enforcement sources.
An officer pulled over Vic, and at some point during the stop, patted him down. We're told the officer found the brass knuckles in Vic's pants pocket.
Here's the thing -- while the "fist-load weapon" is considered legal in most states for self-defense purposes ... they're banned in California. Bad news for Vic.
Cops booked him for felony possession of brass knuckles, and he was later released after posting $20,000 bond.
He did catch a small break in that cops decided not to ticket him for the alleged unsafe turn.
A family fell through the ice of a frozen lake in Big Bear this weekend, and the rescue footage is pretty wild.
The scary moment happened Saturday on Big Bear Lake, where a throng of ambulances, fire trucks and police cruisers blocked off traffic to save a family of 3 that had somehow made their way onto the frozen surface ... and fell in after the ice gave way.
We're told it appeared the group -- which we're told comprised of a mother, a father and their young daughter -- had apparently wandered out there despite signs clearly saying to stay off the ice. It's unclear how long they were immersed in the freezing water.
Luckily, they were all pulled to safety -- but the way it happened is nothing short of dramatic. Ropes with small flotation devices were tossed across until each one could catch it and be dragged to shore. The child was first, the mother 2nd and eventually the man.
A cautionary tale without a doubt ... if it says do not cross, DON'T!!!
Amber Heard is about as talented and passionate as they come, which was on full display this weekend during the Women's March ... where she showed off her ASL.
The actress was one of many celebs who showed up in L.A. Saturday for the fourth annual event -- which got started back in 2016 when President Trump was elected. Amber got on stage at one point and gave a heartfelt speech about her role in the fight.
Check it out ... while she never outright says his name, it sounds like some of what she's talking about here might be touching on her marriage to Johnny Depp ... which ended in a long, nasty legal battle where allegations of lies and abuse were made.
After talking to the crowd, Amber shared a sweet moment with a fan on the ground ... who spoke to her in sign language. Turns out, she's fluent in ASL -- and it definitely shows.
BTW, we also got Amber arriving in an SUV and asked about her injured foot -- which has been straddled with a brace for a few weeks now after a trip to Hawaii. She joked sharks had gotten a hold of her, and when we asked if she was serious ... she shot a knowing look.
It also appears she's moved on to a new significant other in the new year ... cinematographer Bianca Butti, who had Amber by the hand as they made their way into the festivities.
What's the only thing better than Championship weekend?? How about the smokin' hot fans who support the boys taking the field!!!
Don't believe us?? See above.
Check out Oakland Raiders superfan Josephine Skriver supporting the Oakland Raiders in the sexiest fan gear around ... as well as Rob Gronkowski's GF, Camille Kostek, always reppin' her boo's old team.
There's also Green Bay Packers Cheesehead Hailey Clauson ... who's always down to show her true colors.
Look, Mahomes, Henry, Rodgers and Garoppolo are fun to watch ... but this set of pics is much more fun to look at.
So, what better way to kick off the NFC and AFC title games than to scroll through our collection of football lovin' babes!!
DO took to Instagram Saturday to respond to Mark's own video from a few days ago, where he accepted Oz's no-breakfast/one-legged push-up challenge and then joked the guy would probably need a defibrillator by the time Marky Mark was done with him in the gym.

Well, Dr. Oz seems to have one-upped him -- rocking real scrubs and showing off an actual defibrillator in what looks to be a real hospital ... not to mention giving a demonstration.
Oz even takes some shots at MW, saying he's probably used a fake defibrillator in front of the camera -- but in the real world, only one of 'em knows how to use it ... and it ain't Mark. He goes on to call out Mark's "full stomach" and show muscles ... doubting they work as advertised. It's funny, Dr. Oz is confident Mark will be the one passing out.
This is just the latest sling in what's become the weirdest/most awesome celeb feud of the new year. That said, we're ready to see some action here ... 'cause talk is cheap.
Literally, slide through the office so we can officiate this thing. We kinda started it, after all 🤷🏽♂️.
1:25 PM PT -- K. Michelle is no stranger to breakups, and she had just about the most perfect advice for RiRi on the heels of her own.
We got the 'Love & Hip Hop' star Saturday and asked if she had any words of wisdom for Rihanna after breaking it off with Hassan Jameel. She definitely did, and her tip is basically this ... men are a dime a dozen, and she can get another one literally anywhere.
She's not wrong, but you gotta hear the places KM picks for Rihanna to find a new love. Oddly specific, and absolutely hilarious.
RiRi and Rocky were hanging out backstage Friday during the 2020 Yams Day benefit concert in Brooklyn, where the A$AP Mob performed for the fifth annual charity event ... which kicks cash to the Always Strive and Prosper Foundation to help fight substance abuse.
The two superstars seemed pretty chummy, laughing it up and looking super caj with a backdrop of artwork behind 'em. At first glance, you'd think there's nothing to this. However, there's been some speculation recently that something more could be afoot here.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
Fact is, Rihanna's been around A$AP quite a bit over the past few months or so -- which seems to have gone somewhat under the radar. She went to Sweden last month to check out his comeback show -- granted, she wasn't seen in his company. At least not here.
Buckingham Palace announced a path forward Saturday for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in the wake of "Megxit." They say as part of the new agreement reached between all parties, Meg and Harry will no longer formally rep Queen Elizabeth publicly ... and they will also not go by His or Her Highness, as they're no longer working members of the Royal Family.
Another thing they're losing ... public funds and military appointments. All that comes with being a full-time Royal, and since they're out -- all the perks are out too.
The palace says they'll maintain the private charities and causes they support -- and while they're no longer doing anything on behalf of the Queen ... they've agreed to uphold the values of Her Majesty.
Antonio Brown is transitioning into his latest career with relative ease -- he performed for the first time as a rapper, and he's got one signature move of the game DOWN.
The out-of-work wide receiver made his debut on the mic Friday night in Fort Lauderdale, where he opened for rappers Lil Keed and Lil Gotit at a place called Revolution Live. Dude definitely knows how to make an entrance ... he did that and then some.
AB hit the stage to his new single, "Whole Lotta Money," which he rapped to and even enhanced by bringing his music vid to life ... throwing tons of bills all over the crowd.
Looks like he kept the set going too -- Antonio danced onstage and kept tossing around cash. At one point, the DJ mentions something about "allegations," and asked if he wanted to talk about that. AB ignored it though, and kept his focus on the indoor rainstorm.

Here's the deal ... Justin was at Dogpound Gym in West Hollywood with a bunch of people, but then Taylor and her crew rolled up.
We're told everyone -- including JB was asked to get the heck out of the gym -- because Taylor had an appointment. Justin's security team was approached and asked to leave, but JB's team held firm and said he was going to finish his workout before taking off.
We're told Justin, who did not have an appointment, finished -- although he was mostly goofing around and dancing -- and left ... but he had no idea it was Taylor who had requested the gym be cleared. Once he left, everyone who remained was asked to leave.
One source connected to the gym tells us Taylor did indeed have an appointment with a trainer in the gym ... and the appointment was to train alone. Justin just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
JB gave fans a preview of his routine that day, spending quite a bit of time dancing in front of mirrors to his new single, "Yummy."
It's unclear why the Dogpound didn't give Justin a heads up before Taylor's bodyguards showed up.
