Tracy Morgan

First Time Onstage

Since Accident

10/12/2015 7:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

1013-tracy-morgan-the-stand-TWITTER-02Tracy Morgan just came back to live comedy with a vengeance ... returning to not just one stage, but two.

Morgan hasn't performed in front of an audience in over 16 months, as he recovered from the devastating Walmart crash ... but Monday night he performed in NYC at both the Comedy Cellar and The Stand.

We're told he absolutely destroyed both shows, as he prepped to host an upcoming episode of "Saturday Night Live."

We're told the crowds were very small ... and absolutely prohibited any recording.

After he finished his second performance at The Stand, Tracy caught a quick bite to eat before heading out.

Welcome back, Tracy ... time to get everyone pregnant.

Carly Fiorina

First Class Bank Account ...

Still Flying Coach

10/12/2015 3:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012_Carly-Florina_tmz_wmCarly Fiorina's running her presidential campaign on peanuts -- at least in the air, where the $59 million woman is flying low-cost airlines.

We got this shot of Fiorina sitting at LAX -- not in a first class lounge, but just hanging with the general electorate in the terminal, waiting to board a Southwest flight, aka ... NO FIRST CLASS!!

Fiorina was on her way to Oakland for business meetings, according to her press secretary.

Our sources at LAX tell us she was in the first boarding group -- A22, to be specific -- so at least she probably nabbed an overhead bin for her carry-on.

[Ding] Carly is now free to campaign about the country.

Britney Spears

$7 MILLION Steal for New Mansion

10/12/2015 3:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

101215_britney_spears_thousand_oaks_mansion_photos_launchIf you want to know where Britney Spears' massive Las Vegas paychecks are going -- feast your eyes on the huge estate she just snatched up outside Los Angeles!

Brit closed on the 13,264 sq. ft. palace on Friday, according to our real estate sources, and she got it for an amazing $7.4 million. It's not often you hear that kinda price called "a steal," but we're told that's how it's being described in celeb housing circles. 

Here's why -- besides the 5 beds and 7.5 baths ... Brit's new crib sits on 20.98 acres, has tennis courts, AND an infinity pool. She can also work on her golf game (if she's got one), since there's a 3-hole course on the grounds!

Brit's becoming a land baron -- she already owns another property in the area, but she's living in a rental right now.

If there's a downside, it's the $1,836/month in HOA dues. We suspect Britney will find a way to make ends meet.

Jason Biggs

My Wife Is Nuts

For Junk-Revealing Selfie

10/12/2015 1:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012-jason-biggs-on-toilet-INSTAGRAM-01update_graphic_red_bar2:25 PM PT -- Jenny deleted the post from her Instagram. Guess it wasn't intentional, after all.update_grey_gray_barJason Biggs and his wife got photobombed ... by deez. Deez who, you say?

Deez nuts!!

Yes, Jason's family jewels were exposed when Jenny Mollen cleverly snapped a selfie of herself in the mirror -- and Jason squatting on a toilet.

Seems clear they planned out the shot for laughs ... Jenny captioned the pic, "Is this a cute sweater?" What's unclear is if the "American Pie" star's sack reveal was intentional.

For some reason these lyrics come to mind -- "Swing low, sweet chariot ... "

Steve Sarkisian


(Update: Players Notified By Text)

10/12/2015 1:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news


update_graphic_red_bar2:09 PM PT -- USC players tell us they were notified that Sarkisian was fired via text message from the coaching staff. update_grey_gray_barSteve Sarkisian is out as the head football coach at USC. 

Here's the official statement from Athletic Director Pat Haden

"After careful consideration of what is in the best interest of the university and our student-athletes, I have made the decision to terminate Steve Sarkisian, effective immediately."

"I want to thank Clay Helton for stepping into the interim head coach role, and I want to add how proud I am of our coaching staff and players and the way they are responding to this difficult situation." 

"Through all of this we remain concerned for Steve and hope that it will give him the opportunity to focus on his personal well being."

As we previously reported, Steve was put on a "leave of absence" after showing up to the football facility on Sunday looking as if he was intoxicated.

'Celebrity Wife Swap'


10/12/2015 12:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


"Celebrity Wife Swap" will no longer reveal important life lessons like ... do NOT be Coolio's live-in girlfriend -- ABC is pulling the plug on the reality show.

TMZ has learned the spin-off from "Wife Swap" has been cancelled after 4 seasons.

We're told executives for Zodiak Media -- the production company -- have already started emailing potential candidates about the show's demise. ABC says no decision's been made yet, but the people producing 'CWS' are saying otherwise.

During its run, the show exposed domestic train wrecks like Gary Busey, Corey Feldman, Andy Dick, and Verne Troyer.

Tragically, we'll never get to see a Randy Quaid swap.


Simon Cowell

I Can Still Party ...

Like a Bev Hills Housewife!

10/12/2015 12:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1012_simon-cowell_party-instagramSimon Cowell celebrated his 56th birthday with Ryan Seacrest, his GF ... and a 'Real Housewife.'

We're told Cowell's baby mama Lauren Silverman set up everything for the celebration dinner at Sur Lounge in West Hollywood ... where celeb guests included Ryan, designer Rachel Roy, and Lisa Vanderpump. Makes sense, since it's her restaurant -- plus, we're told LV and Silverman are longtime pals.

Seacrest surprised Cowell with a mini Maybach. The ex "American Idol" co-stars have a running joke about Cowell's 5'9" height ... which is funny, coming from Seacrest.

Based on Simon's reaction, size doesn't matter to him. Not on his birthday at least.

Alek Skarlatos

Busts His Nose

In 'DWTS' Rehearsal

10/12/2015 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The bad luck streak continues ... Alek Skarlatos -- one of the French terror train heroes -- just suffered a broken nose, courtesy of his "Dancing with the Stars" partner. 

Our 'DWTS' sources tell us Skarlatos and his partner Emma Slater were in rehearsals Monday morning when she accidentally hit him in the face with an elbow.

We're told medics are at the dance studio right now ... checking him out. Early prognosis is ... it's broken, but he'll have to get x-rays to confirm.

Just last week -- Alek's fellow train hero Spencer Stone was nearly killed when he got stabbed four times in the chest in a bar fight. Also, Alek was supposed to be at Umpqua Community College the day the shooting happened there -- but was at 'DWTS' instead.

Alek visited Spencer in the hospital just this weekend.


Ariel Winter

Kylie Who?

10/12/2015 10:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012-ariel-winter-pretty-TWITTER-01Ariel Winter took her boyfriend out to a wedding this weekend, and her fashion sense was on full display.

17-year-old Ariel sported a very low cut lavender bandage dress, while her adult BF (he's 18) went simple suit and tie.

The "Modern Family" star's 18th birthday is just a few months away. 

Kylie Jenner and Bella Thorne might have some really neat ideas for Ariel on how to celebrate the big day when it's finally time -- on January 28, 2016.

If you're counting.

Exclusive Details

1012-gordon-ramsey-marathon-puking-TMZ-01Gordon Ramsay had the guts to enter the grueling Ironman World Championship in Hawaii, but he ended up losing those guts ... on the side of a road.

Chef Ramsay had to drop out of the legendary race, but not before completing the 2.4 mile ocean swim. He moved on to the 122 mile bike ride, and that's when he started blowing chunks.

He tried to persevere through the final marathon leg, but went down with dehydration ... which prevented him from finishing. Medics had to come to his aid.

Ramsay's finished the race before ... in 2013 and it took him 14 hours. He says he'll be back next year.

Kourtney Kardashian

Toddler Down!!

Car Door Hits Penelope

1012_penelope_kourtney_kardashian_car_door_launchKourtney Kardashian had a serious mom moment -- she looked away for a split second, and one of her kids took a car door to the face!

Kourt was actually holding 3-year-old Penelope's hand as they walked past a parked car in Malibu on Sunday -- and at that very moment, one of the car doors flung open.

Poor Penelope went down in a heap, and, naturally burst into tears. Mom and the nanny quickly comforted her ... and we're told she's okay.

Kids. They bounce back.
