Georgina Chapman Steps Out in London a Month After Leaving Husband Harvey Weinstein

Georgina Chapman was spotted for the first time since separating from her husband Harvey Weinstein after dozens of sexual misconduct accusations.

The British fashion designer stepped out in London on Friday dressed in all black with a long coat, ankle length pants and loose sweater. She also kept clear of jewelry and wasn’t wearing her wedding ring after separating from Weinstein shortly after the first wave of accusations surfaced.

Sources previously told PEOPLE that Chapman is laying low as the scandal continues.

“Georgina’s plan is to keep staying low-key,” a source told PEOPLE. “She is focused on her children and her business. She doesn’t have any plans for public appearances.”

And while Chapman, 41, and Weinstein, 65, have been in contact to discuss their two children, the source said there is no hope of reconciliation between the two.

On Oct. 10, Chapman announced she was leaving Weinstein. In a statement to PEOPLE, she said, “My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered.” She has since met with divorce lawyers.

“She is still shocked about all the women coming forward,” says the source. “She feels terrible. She is disgusted with Harvey and very angry.”

The Oscar-winning producer has been accused of sexual misconduct by over 50 women since The New York Times and The New Yorker documented decades of alleged sexual misconduct and sexual assault involving a number of women in detailed articles earlier this month.

A spokesperson for Weinstein previously told PEOPLE in a statement that “any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.”

SNL Takes on Harvey Weinstein Scandal: ‘It’s Not a Mistake — It’s a Full Season of Law & Order’

One week after Saturday Night Live made last minute cuts on jokes about Harvey Weinstein‘s sexual misconduct scandal, the sketch show came out swinging against the movie mogul.

During Saturday’s “Weekend Update” segment, Colin Jost and Michael Che jumped right in with Weinstein jokes, combined with the news of Apple’s new emojis.

“Apple announced it will add hundreds of new emojis to its iOS system including a person at a spa, a vomiting face and a shushing finger — finally giving emoji fans the ability to describe what it was like to work for Harvey Weinstein,” host Jost said.

Jost then announced that the producer is seeking treatment.

“Somehow, I don’t think that is going to help anybody,” he said. “He doesn’t need sex rehab. He needs a specialized facility where there are no women, no contact with the outside world, metal bars, and it’s a prison.”

RELATED: The Harvey Weinstein Scandal — All of the Hollywood Figures Who Have Spoken Out Against Movie Mogul

Co-anchor Che also didn’t hold back.

“This is a tough spot for a comedian because it’s so hard to make jokes about sexual assault, but it’s so easy to make jokes about a guy that looks like this,” he said. “I mean, he looks like chewed bubblegum rolled in cat hair.”

Che added, “Weinstein told reporters that ‘we all make mistakes,’ but you assaulted dozens of women — that’s not a mistake, that’s a full season of Law and Order.”

Multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, which came to light in an Oct. 5 New York Times exposé and were compounded by a subsequent investigation by the New Yorker, have been brought against Weinstein in the past few weeks.

Following the initial report, Weinstein said in a statement that he was working with therapists and planned to “deal with this issue head-on.” He has since been fired from his powerhouse studio, the Weinstein Company, and his wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, has announced she’s leaving him.

In response to the lengthy allegations made against Weinstein in the New Yorker piece, a spokesperson for Weinstein said, “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein.”

In another sketch, Aidy Bryant moderated a panel of three screen legends — Leslie Jones as Viola Davis, Cecily Strong as Marion Cotillard and Kate McKinnon playing fan-favorite character Debette Goldry — discussing sexual harassment in the industry through the years.

“Have I ever experienced sexual harassment in Hollywood? Good Friday, where do you want me to start?” Goldry exclaimed. “Women being harassed is Hollywood. Everything old is new again. Producers are abusing starlets. There’s Nazis marching in the street. And suddenly nude pantyhose are on-trend. I have never felt more at home.”

She added, “When’s polio coming back? This will be fun.”

The actresses discussed their own experiences will sexual harassment, such as men getting naked or trying to coerce them into giving a massage — allegations that mirror what women have said against Weinstein.

“I did have one meeting with Harvey,” McKinnon’s character said. “I was invited to his hotel room and when I arrived he was naked, hanging upside down from a monkey bar. He tried to trick me into thinking his genitals were actually his face. It almost worked. The resemblance is uncanny.”

McKinnon turned to the camera for the final word against sexual harassment and assault.

“Violence against women, it doesn’t just happen to famous actresses, it’s everywhere, d— it! It’s time we take it seriously,” said Goldry. “Pandora’s box is open now, and Pandora’s p—-d.”

Texans Told to Evacuate Ahead of Hurricane Harvey as Massive Storm Approaches: ‘Don’t Take Any Chances’

Texas residents are being told to evacuate and take all necessary precautions as Hurricane Harvey is expected to touch down on Friday night, in the strongest hurricane to make landfall in the Texas Coastal Bend in nearly 50 years.

“I strongly urge all Texans to heed warnings from your local officials and I also urge that you immediately follow evacuation orders for all impacted counties — particularly in the Corpus Christi and Houston areas where the storm surges and flooding from Hurricane Harvey are most likely,” Gov. Greg Abott said in a statement.

Harvey, which is expected to touch down Friday night or early Saturday morning along the Texas Gulf Coast, is expected to bring up to 35 inches of rain, CNN reports. Flood waters and destructive waves could reach heights of up to 12 feet along the Texas coast.

The storm, currently Category 2, is expected to become a Category 3 hurricane by time it makes landfall with winds of more than 100 mph, CNN reports. As it strengthens, forecasters said Harvey will be the nation’s first Category 3 hurricane to make landfall in nearly 12 years, according to The Weather Channel.

Officials have labeled Harvey a “life-threatening storm” that will put millions of people in a “grave risk,” the Associated Press reports.

“Please take all necessary precautions to save your life and to minimize risks,” Gov. Abott added in the statement. “Don’t take any chances and evacuate when you are ordered.”

Now, local businesses in the storms path are shutting down and residents are clearing out grocery stores in preparation. Meanwhile, Corpus Christi’s Driscoll Children’s Hospital was airlifting 10 sick, premature babies from its neonatal intensive care unit to a hospital in Fort Worth, according to the AP.

The infants were expected to arrive at the hospital by early Friday and an official told the publication that hospital staff feared that power outages at the Corpus Christie hospital might disable the babies’ ventilators.

Daring Rescues in the Wake of Hurricane Matthew

Abott has requested that 700 National Guard members be activated for the storm and Ports of Corpus Christi and Galveston are closed, according to CNN.

Residents lined up during the week to catch buses to safer areas and roads were packed with backpack-carrying residents heading out of town.

“I’m shaking inside, but for them, I’m trying to be strong,” a Corpus Christi mother of two said, according to CNN.

David Beckham, Harvey Keitel Featured in Belstaff Short Film

OH, DOWN IN MEXICO: David Beckham is teaming with Belstaff once again on a short film set to be released on Sept. 22, following the brand’s show at London Fashion Week.
Beckham appears with Harvey Keitel, Katherine Waterston, Cathy Moriarty in “Outlaws,” which was filmed on location in Mexico, with Liv Tyler as the executive producer.
“I always love to challenge myself,” said Beckham. “Filming ‘Outlaws’ in the Mexican desert with Belstaff and the Legs team — not to mention working alongside Harvey, Cathy, and Katherine — was an adventure I will never forget.”
Written and directed by Geremy Jasper, the film has a surreal atmosphere and was produced by Belstaff Films and Legs, a division of Milk Media.
The film follows a mysterious drifter and motorcycle stuntman who is haunted by memories of a beautiful trapeze artist — and hunted by a maniacal director seeking revenge.

Steve Harvey On Overcoming The Odds: ‘I’ve Lived In A Car. I’ve Been Homeless.’ (VIDEO)

Most people know comedian Steve Harvey as a talk show host, radio personality, and entertainer. What you may not know is that he was once a college dropout who drifted from one dead-end job to the next, even living out of his car for a time. He knows what it’s like to be down and out.

Now, at age 57, Harvey wants to share the lessons he’s learned the hard way. In the above clip from his upcoming appearance on “Oprah’s Lifeclass,” he sits down with Oprah to discuss his new book, Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success: Discovering Your Gift and the Way to Life’s Riches.

Harvey jokes that he writes “very simple.” “You say a word to me that has more than three syllables in it; you have wasted a lot of time. Get your thesaurus out and find a lesser word.”

He explains that he wanted everyone to understand his book because he’s been at “every level there is.”

“I have flunked out of college,” Harvey says. “I have been divorced, messed up my life. I’ve lived in a car. I’ve been homeless. I’ve been written off, told I wasn’t going to be nothing. “

Harvey admits he’s made a “complete mess of my life” in the past.

“So I know what it is to have no money,” he says. “I know what it is to start at the bottom. I know what it is to get back up. I know what it is to overcome. I know what it is to win. I know what losses feel like. I know what failure does — I know how to use it to your advantage.”

“And you know how to reinvent yourself,” Oprah adds.

“Man, you can’t be afraid of that,” Harvey says.

Harvey’s appearance on “Oprah’s Lifeclass” airs Sunday, September 7 at 9 p.m. ET on OWN.

Daytime Emmy Awards Honor Steve Harvey, Ellen DeGeneres And ‘The Young And The Restless’

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ellen DeGeneres, Steve Harvey and the soap opera “The Young and the Restless” were among the 41st annual Daytime Emmy winners.

“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” received its eighth trophy as outstanding entertainment talk show at the awards ceremony Sunday in Beverly Hills. The “Steve Harvey” show was honored as outstanding informative talk show, while Harvey won as best game show host for “Family Feud.”

CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” captured six awards, including honors for best drama series and best lead actor for star Billy Miller. Eileen Davidson of NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” was named best drama series actress.

ABC’s “Good Morning America” won the best morning program Emmy.

The Daytime Emmys introduced new awards for Spanish-language shows. Trophies went to Telemundo’s “Un Nuevo Dia” as best morning program, to CNNE’s “Clix” as best entertainment show and to Rodner Figueroa of Univision’s “El Gordo y la Flaca” as best daytime talent in Spanish.

CBS, which received eight creative arts Daytime Emmys for technical achievements at a ceremony last week, emerged as the network leader with a total of 14 awards after Sunday’s ceremony.

PBS received a combined 13 awards, with six for HUB Network; five for TOLN.com; four for ABC and three for NBC.

The ceremony, which aired on the cable news channel HLN last year and in 2012 after losing its longtime home on the broadcast networks, this year settled for streaming the proceedings online. The change in fortune reflects the dwindling daytime audience and programming shifts.

First Nighter: Harvey Fierstein’s Highly Accomplished “Casa Valentina”

When you hear that Casa Valentina, Harvey Fierstein’s new play, at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Samuel J. Friedman, takes place at a Catskills resort where men cross-dress in a completely compatible environment, you may be thinking, “Ah-hah, our beloved Harvey and men going about as women–this is bound to be a knock-your-socks-or-stockings-off spin on La Cage Aux Folles.

Turns out you’d be almost 180-degrees wrong. Yes, Fierstein fans, there are plenty of belly laughs as the two-acts unfold on Scott Pask’s lean version of a mountain getaway that’s seen better days. But the playwright has much more on his mind and up his chiffon sleeve. What he’s conjuring is a work along the lines of his reputation-making Torch Song Trilogy but far more probing, far more trenchant, far more unsettling than that earlier three-part opus.

The weekend on which he’s concentrating is the one in 1962 where Casa Valentina–actually doing business under the name Chevalier d’Eon as the action begins–is in danger of shuttering for financial reasons. So owner George (Patrick Page), known as Valentina when in drag, has invited a national activist calling himself Charlotte (Reed Birney) in his female guise to join the most loyal guests with a proposition meant to save the establishment.

Complicating George/Valentina’s worries is his recent implication in a mail fracas the local authorities have uncovered. All this is transpiring as he and heretofore understanding wife Rita (Mare Winningham) are welcoming heavy-set Albert/Bessie (Tom McGowan), older transvestite Terry (John Collum), glamorous Gloria (Nick Westrate), the sporting Judge/Amy (Larry Pine) and relatively young newcomer Jonathon/Miranda (Gabriel Ebert).

Things are progressing well and amusingly–particularly when the giddy bunch decide to give awkward Miranda a make-over–but take a turn for the deeply serious when at a formal “sorority” meeting Charlotte introduces a charter she’s put together whereby the men gathered would sign their names as proudly open transvestites. Charlotte’s conviction is that forthright citizens declaring themselves in this way will help legitimize cross-dressing as just another unthreatening expression of human sexuality.

Charlotte’s plot doesn’t go down smoothly with the others, especially when he/she insists that they all ratify a clause dissociating themselves from homosexuality. She maintains that more often than not, cross-dressers like them–straight men with an impulse–are often assumed to be gay. That damaging canard must be aired and changed, Charlotte insists.

Once the scene where the suggestion is mooted has been played–in something a bit too close to a veiled debate than some ticket buyers might find dramatically comfortable–Fierstein keeps the characters wading in troubled metaphorical waters.

Even though he starts his second act with Bessie, Gloria and Terry lip-synching to the McGuire Sisters’ “Sugartime” (and even copying some of the famed siblings’ choreography), he’s ingeniously stirred up problems for most of the participants. Certainly, revelations about the true nature of The Judge/Amy create a sticky situation for the conflicted man. And certainly, a bribery scheme Charlotte hatches gets seriously ugly.

Perhaps as disturbing as any of the twists Fierstein deviously and deliciously works into the script is the change in George and Rita’s seemingly happy marriage. That surfaces after the late and provocative arrival of Eleanor (Lisa Emery), who announces herself as the Judge’s daughter. Whether George and Rita can go on as before, whatever the future of their co-owned business, looks to be an unresolved question.

Curiously, Casa Valentina is the second production to bow in two days dealing with the slippery issue of gender-bending. (The first is Hedwig and the Angry Inch.) Fierstein deals with the much less discussed, generally sub rosa topic of primarily cross-dressing heterosexual men. Decades and probably centuries old (and fully accepted in some societies), the practice wasn’t new when the retreat called Casa Susana made the news–and caught Fierstein’s attention–as the subject of a 2005 picture book edited by Michel Hurst and Robert Swope.

Heterosexual cross-dressinng still a somewhat arcane issue, however, it’s not surprising that Fierstein who’s been championing related causes for close to 40 years takes up this one. Maybe he’s long intended to delve further into a condition with which he had so much touching gaiety in the above-mentioned La Cage Aux Folles. With this one, he gets around with unflinching concern to intolerance, blackmail and the cruelty of the divided psyche. While at it, he demonstrates his awareness of the destructive potential of compulsive behavior.

His concern is not to be sneezed it, and also prompting no sneezing is Joe Mantello’s tight and sympathetic direction of top-notch Broadway actors submerging themselves in perhaps their most challenging roles with no hint of camping to distance themselves from the men they’re portraying.

There is no first among equals here–Birney, Cullum, Ebert, McGowan, Page, Pine and Westrate all get into their wigs, frocks and make-up with consummate skill. Mare Winningham, who seems to have made New York theater her base nowadays, is simultaneously strong and vulnerable. Emery attacks her one scene with her usual forthright flair.

And about those female accouterments the actors gussy themselves up in before their vanity tables: Rita Ryack has collected all manner of outfits that men in the 1960s, who are stuck in 1950s fashions, would affect in order to pass for bridge-playing housewives. Jason P. Hayes concocted the hair-all-a-curl wigs that get plenty of exposure during the two acts.

One avenue Fierstein doesn’t go down is explaining why these men–standing in for a possibly not inconsiderate population–do what they do. Yes, he suggests that for some of them it’s a compulsion but without searching for the source of the compulsion. A couple of them appear to be pursuing their alter egos merely for the fun of it, but why is it simply fun for them?
