Judge Jeanine Pirro I Got Treated 'Less Than Human' By Whoopi and 'The View' Crew

7/19/2018 6:50 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Judge Jeanine Pirro doesn't say she regrets going on "The View" -- even though it ended in a shouting match -- but it doesn't seem like she's in a hurry to go back either.

We got the Fox News star in NYC Thursday and asked about her highly contentious appearance on the talk show earlier in the day, which got especially heated with Whoopi Goldberg.

Jeanine tells us she can handle debating people with opposing views -- even if she's outnumbered ... but says she's got a big problem with getting an invite to talk and then being treated like garbage. 

As for Whoopi, the judge doesn't have much more to say other than what was said during their showdown and, as she points out ... it probably wouldn't resolve much anyway.

Now get out of the way ... Jeanine's got places to be.

Bristol Palin I'm the New 'Teen Mom' ... Joins Next Season's Cast

7/19/2018 2:52 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The folks who produce 'Teen Mom' know what sells ... because TMZ has learned Bristol Palin is joining "Teen Mom OG."

Production sources tell us, Sarah Palin's daughter has signed on as a regular on the show. It appears she's helping to fill the void left by another famous cast member -- Farrah Abraham -- who was fired for being way too difficult. She disputes that, and says she got the axe because she was a porn star.

As you know, Bristol -- now 27 -- has 3 kids and was famously engaged to Levi Johnston. She eventually married Dakota Meyer, whom she's in the process of divorcing. She was 17 when her first kid, Tripp, was born.

Bristol will join cast members Amber Portwood, McKenzie McKee, Maci Bookout and Catelynn Lowell.

The season fires up on MTV this Fall. 

Asia Argento Shares Anthony Bourdain Photo From Days Before His Death

7/19/2018 5:44 PM PDT

Asia Argento's still grieving the loss of Anthony Bourdain.

The actress shared a personal photo Thursday of herself with her late boyfriend ... the 2 are in a red convertible looking happy, with the 'Parts Unknown' host smirking while holding a green umbrella over them.

Asia captioned the pic with an Italian poem from Dante's "Divine Comedy," which translates to ... "There is no greater sorrow than to be mindful of the happy time in misery, and that thy Teacher knows. But, if to recognize the earliest root of love in us thou hast so great desire, I will do even as he who weeps and speaks."

According to the post, the photo was taken May 27 ... just a little over a week before Bourdain died by suicide. As we reported ... he was found dead in his French hotel room after using the belt from his robe to hang himself.

Argento wrote after his death that she was "beyond devastated." She's shared a few photos with Bourdain since then ... clearly trying to take Dante's words to heart.

7/19/2018 6:06 PM PDT

Russell Wilson and Ciara are pocketing their babysitter dough tonight -- no need for one when you have to attend a Hollywood event that's actually for the kids.

Ronda Rousey and Travis Browne, Michael Phelps and Nicole Phelps also showed up -- families in tow -- for the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Sports Awards Thursday night in Santa Monica. Kinda the perfect award show follow-up to the ESPYs.

In fact, ESPYs host Danica Patrick is also at the Nick event with her bf, Aaron Rodgers. They don't have any kids, but they look damn good on camera, so ... good enough.

Rep. Matt Gaetz My Teleprompter Stance Saved Me From Sacha Baron Shame

7/19/2018 3:42 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Congressman Matt Gaetz didn't fall for Sacha Baron Cohen's trap to promote putting guns in the hands of toddlers, but admits he was clueless about who he was talking to.

We got the Florida Representative Thursday at Reagan National Airport, and asked how he managed to avoid being duped like several of his Republican peers ... who shockingly read a fake PSA calling for school children to be armed.

Gaetz says he'll never let a teleprompter do him in.

Gaetz tells us he's still disappointed in himself for not recognizing Cohen in makeup, because he missed a chance to whip out his own Borat impressions to the man himself.

He also has some advice for folks, like Sarah Palin, who are complaining about getting played.

The Congressman didn't elaborate on his anxiety about teleprompters, but since he loves Borat, we're gonna guess he's also seen Ron Burgundy's work.

EXCLUSIVE

'Bachelorette' star Becca Kufrin went from a great hair day to a bad one after a few rides at the Happiest Place on Earth.

Becca and a gal pal got the royal treatment at Disneyland Wednesday cruising around with a park guide, which means they likely didn't have to wait in line. Plus, she's on ABC which is owned by Disney ... so, yeah ... instant FastPass.

Mark Cuban Jimmy G's Porn Star Date ... Won't Burn Bridges

7/19/2018 10:36 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jimmy Garoppolo has nothing to fear about losing endorsements or pissing off his bosses just because he's dating a porn star ... so says none other than NBA team owner and "Shark Tank" star Mark Cuban.

Mark says he's had players on the Dallas Mavericks who have dated porn stars in the past, and it's never been an issue -- with one caveat. If they try to hide it, they're screwed.

Cuban thinks Jimmy actually did himself a big favor because he's coming off as authentic ... and, in the world of advertising, there's nothing more important than being real. 

TMZ broke the story .. the 49ers QB took porn legend Kiara Mia out to dinner in Bev Hills Wednesday night.

Chad from 'The Bachelorette' Sues Movie Producer ... I Turned You Down and You Shafted Me!!!

7/19/2018 12:08 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chad Johnson -- best known as the villain on JoJo's season of "The Bachelorette" -- was breaking into the movie biz, but he claims he got screwed over by a producer because he wouldn't screw her.

Chad, who's also a "Bachelor in Paradise" alum, claims a producer with Sunset Studios named Christina Cimino reached out to him via Instagram in March, and told him she could help him land movie roles.

According to the docs ... she used her power to lure Chad into several in-person meetings, phone calls and thousands of texts, which he says became "progressively more sexual and provocative."

Chad claims he wanted to keep things professional and made this known to Cimino, and she originally obliged by offering him gigs in 2 movies -- for an $11 million payday.

However, in the suit he says it was just a scheme to "exert control over" him and once he insisted he didn't want to get sexual or romantic with her ... she pulled the movie roles.

There's more -- Chad says during her pursuit of him, Cimino sent racy text messages, including one that read ... "Hey wanna come over later? Clothing is optional, nakedness is preferable." He says she later claimed the text wasn't meant for him.

He says Cimino once texted him claiming they made out, and he grabbed her butt -- but in the suit, Chad says it didn't go down like that at all. He says she was the aggressor and assaulted him.

Johnson's suing Cimino and Sunset Studios for assault, fraud and emotional distress ... and wants his movie money. We reached out to Cimino and the studio ... no word back so far.

Jill Scott to Ex Your Stuff's in Storage ... But I'm Keeping the Robes!!!

7/19/2018 11:09 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jill Scott says she's done all she can to return her estranged husband's personal items, and if he really wants them he knows where to find them ... but they won't include those lavish robes, 'cause he stole them!

We broke the story ... Michael Dobson filed docs in the ex-couple's divorce case claiming Jill was refusing to fork over a lot of his stuff -- like a "Purple Rain" album, an extended shoe horn and 5 hotel robes.

Jill's firing back with docs of her own -- obtained by TMZ -- claiming she tried to deliver Michael all of his things but got no response, so she sent them to a storage facility in Atlanta where he now lives, AND sent him the key.

Jill claims he's yet to pick up his stuff -- including the shoe horn -- and refuses to make payments for the storage unit ... so she's still stuck footing the bill.

According to the docs, though ... those 5 hotel robes don't even belong to Dobson, because Jill says he stole them and SHE had to pay for them.

Jill's asking the judge to toss his request to return his stuff because she already did ... and she wants attorney's fees for her trouble.

The snowboarding gold medalist hit up the official awards after-party at L.A. Live on Wednesday ... and didn't even hesitate when Young Gerald asked her to spit Cardi B's verse on his hit, "No Limit"

The people in attendance totally lost it ... and rightfully so. Chloe knows ALL the words (even the dirty ones).

We'd recommend she start a rap career ... but there's already a Lil Kim.
