Omarosa Dog, Traitor, Liar ... Whatever, Buy My Book & I'll Be Happy

8/14/2018 6:32 PM PDT

Omarosa is getting called every name in the book for leaking secretly recorded convos with and about Trump --- but you'd never guess she was bothered, based on her pearly whites.

Trump's former aide-turned-foe was seen leaving Trevor Noah's 'Daily Show' set in NYC Tuesday night alongside her husband, John Allen Newman. She was smiling ear-to-ear while exiting the building -- which we'll take to mean her appearance went well.

She certainly had a lot to talk about. From a new tape in which other Trump campaigners discussed alleged audio of the Prez using the n-word, to her Situation Room firing and, of course, Trump calling her a dog ... topics were anything but scant.

Let's not kid ourselves though -- Omarosa is doing a full blitz book tour right now, so you know she's loving the attention, good or bad. As long as it sells ... she's happy.

YG Booted Off Flight Over One Request ... Slim 400 Calls it BS!!!

8/14/2018 4:24 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

YG was sober as a judge when a flight attendant claimed he was drunk and kicked him off a plane Monday night ... according to rapper Slim 400, who was also on the flight. 

Slim, one of YG's artists, says the trouble started when YG asked the American Airlines flight attendant if he could change his seat. He says there was no yelling or cussing ... just a calm request, but still things went south.

He says it only escalated because of the flight attendant's reaction to YG's request. You gotta see his description of what went down. Slim suggests the attendant's attitude was racially motivated because he's positive YG wasn't drunk and shows us why.

As we reported, YG posted a video as he was leaving the plane, claiming the airline was a bunch of "Racist ass muthaf***as." American tells us he was kicked off "due to being intoxicated."

Slim says they had a major hassle after leaving the plane, but another airline eventually stepped up to get them to NYC.

Priyanka Chopra Surprise, Here's My Engagement Ring

8/14/2018 4:53 PM PDT

Nick Jonas' rumored fiancee, Priyanka Chopra, seems to have just put the speculation to bed -- 'cause she's got a big rock on THAT finger ... which may or may not have been meant to be seen publicly. 

Actress Raveena Tandon posted a shot of her with Priyanka Tuesday with Priyanka's left arm wrapped around her neck -- placing her ring finger on full display.

Yep, that's an engagement ring alright ... and it looks like the youngest Jo Bro shelled out big time based on how big it is. Now, we're not jewelers or anything -- but this bling doesn't appear to be as elaborate as the one Joe got for Sophie late last year. 

She said yes.

A post shared by J O E J O N A S (@joejonas) on

Whatevs though. Dude put a ring on it -- and that means Priyanka's officially off the market. Sorry, fellas.

Bruno Mars Hires 4 Acts to Replace Cardi B!!! Ciara, Boyz II Men Join 24K Magic Tour

8/14/2018 3:22 PM PDT
Breaking News

Cardi B's a tough act to follow ... according to Bruno Mars, who just announced he's replacing her spot on his tour with a slew of artists ... including Ciara.

Bruno played the role of hype man -- in a BIG way -- when he finally revealed who's stepping into Cardi's role on the 24K Magic Tour. In addition to Ciara, he's bringing Boyz II Men, Ella Mai ... as well as R&B legend Charlie Wilson (aka Uncle Charlie).

As you know, Cardi pulled out of her opening spot last month on Bruno's upcoming tour, saying it would be too much of a physical and emotional strain so soon after giving birth to Kulture.

The tour kicks off next month in Denver.

And Bruno ... maybe one less cup of coffee?? 

Dru Hill's Smoke E. Digglera 'Internet is Undefeated' ... We Failed Bad at Sneaker Cover-Up!!

8/14/2018 4:03 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dru Hill's new member ain't even tryin' to lie ... Smoke E. Digglera knows he and the group got busted -- hilariously -- for photoshopping his sneakers, but there's a funny story behind the flub.

Smoke, formerly lead singer for Playa, tells TMZ the mix-up started when he showed up for the photo shoot with Sisqo and the rest of DH, including fellow new member, Static Major. As the Internet immediately figured out ... those white Jordan 1 shoes on his feet were dropped in to cover up his, uhh ... wardrobe malfunction. 

He says a miscommunication on what the shoot was supposed to frame (or not frame, more like) led to a last-minute change in editing ... and the rest is history.

As you probably know, fans roasted the poor Photoshop job with a bunch of "WHAT ARE THOSE?!" memes.

Despite the widespread jokes ... it sounds like Smoke would do it all over again. Comfort over everything, baby!

Shaunie O'Neal Burglars Used Social Media ... To Target Us

8/14/2018 3:54 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Shaunie O'Neal believes the guys who tried to rob her house were definitely using social media to case the joint ... and tells TMZ Sports she's laid down some new rules so it doesn't happen again.

The "Basketball Wives" creator busted some dopes trying to bust into her L.A. house this weekend, and used the Ring home security system to put the fear of God in them, making the would-be burglars retreat.

We talked to Shaquille O'Neal's ex-wife -- and she told us she recognized one of the perps from a previous attempted break-in ... and believes they're using social media to see if the coast is clear.

"I'm assuming though that they are watching social media because the first time he tried we were all in Vegas."

Shaunie says the family has been shaken by the events ... and they've decided to change the way they post to make sure no one knows when they are home, or out on the go.

"That was our family meeting last night -- no more posting current situations. We can't do that."

It wouldn't be the first time it's happened ... celebs like Kim Kardashian have toned down their social media exploits after feeling crooks used it against them, choosing to play it safe so they don't end up sorry.

"If someone really wants to get in your house they have that moment to do that. It's how safe do you really feel?"

Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner Yes, We Like Pina Coladas ... And PDA in the Pool!!!

8/14/2018 2:32 PM PDT

Joe Jonas is celebrating his birthday a little early ... and Sophie Turner's white and wet crop top is certainly making it a much happier occasion.

The middle Jo bro and his fiancee were spotted double fisting fruity drinks Monday in the pool before putting on a steamy PDA display at South Beach's Delano Hotel. Wednesday will be his 29th birthday.

The "Game of Thrones" star's high-cut, 2-piece swimsuit showed off her curves and her tats. Officially, we're told that's a Greer top she's rocking, but we think crop-T-ini (™) is a much more fun name.  

The couple got engaged in October and have been going strong since ... even double dating last month with Priyanka Chopra and Joe's brother, Nick. No word when they're tying the knot, but the world could use another happy 'GoT' wedding.

Happy early bday, Joe!

Sarah Huckabee Sanders 'I Can't Guarantee' Trump Didn't Say N-Word

8/14/2018 1:05 PM PDT
Breaking News

Sarah Huckabee Sanders can't say for sure there isn't a recording of President Trump saying the n-word.

The White House Press Sec. was bombarded Tuesday with questions about Omarosa's many secret recordings ... during the campaign and after Trump was in Office.

Sanders was asked multiple times if she's ever directly asked Trump if he used the n-word. She deflected each time, and refused to use the g-word ... guarantee. As we reported, Omarosa recorded Trump campaign staffers discussing how to handle a possible recording of him using the racial epithet.

Sarah's inability to offer a guarantee such a tape doesn't exist ... is only adding fuel to the fire.

Denver Broncos Rookie Hazing! Enjoy Your New Terrible Haircut!

Breaking News

Bradley Chubb ...  your head just got JACKED UP!!!

It's the best rookie hazing tradition in football -- the Denver Broncos line up the rookies, break out the clippers and go to work ... churning out the UGLIEST hairdos they can think of. 

No one is spared -- including Chubb (the 5th overall pick in the draft) ... with every rookie looking like they just got buzzed up by Stevie Wonder

Linebacker Brandon Marshall documented the damage -- some players got a checkerboard do ... others got a Coolio look. One dude got the ol' Friar Tuck (just like the one Tim Tebow got back in the day). 

Don't worry ... it'll grow back. 

Maybe. 

Safaree Nicki Minaj Cut Me with a Knife ... She Tried to Kill Me

8/14/2018 9:51 AM PDT

Safaree claims Nicki Minaj went after him with a knife, stabbing him so severely he went to the hospital by ambulance ... but she says he's a liar.

Safaree, who broke up with Nicki in 2014, just tweeted, "Remember the night you cut me and i almost died the police and ambulance had to take me out the crib on a stretcher and I had to lie and tell them I was trying to kill myself so they wouldn't take you to jail."

Nicki fired back, "U stole my card & told me you thought it was an account with 'free money' that I didn't know about. On God. God will strike you down & more for lying."

We've actually seen a video back in 2014 that shows Nicki chasing Safaree with a knife. 

Coolio Off Probation in Airport Gun Case

8/14/2018 11:23 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Coolio's airport gun bust is officially behind him -- a judge just released him from the rest of his probation sentence.

We got the "Gangsta's Paradise" rapper leaving court in L.A. County following a hearing in which the last year of his 3-year probation was waived in his gun case. It's unclear why the court cut him a break ... we've got a call in to the D.A.'s office.

We broke the story ... Coolio was arrested in 2016 at LAX after a loaded gun was found in one of his bags. He was charged with possession of a concealed weapon, and eventually pled guilty ... which resulted in a sentence of 3 years probation and community service.

There's a lesson in all this, and Coolio hilariously told us how he'd avoid a future "misunderstanding."

With his own troubles behind him, he offered Omarosa some advice regarding her White House recordings. It involves history and not biting the hand that feeds ya.

EXCLUSIVE

LB Bonner called 911 before he shot himself, but the operator couldn't help him out because she couldn't hear him ... according to the audio.

The former "My 600-lb Life" star can be heard trying to give his location on the call -- obtained by TMZ -- but hangs up after the dispatcher explains she's having difficulty understanding him. She then tries to call him back ... but it goes straight to voicemail.

L.B.'s mother also called 911, saying he'd been posting threats about hurting himself online and she's afraid he's going to "do something stupid." According to his mom ... L.B. reached out to many people -- including producers of the show -- about his suicidal thoughts, but then nobody could reach him.

We broke the story ... Bonner's death was ruled a suicide by the coroner, from a self-inflicted single gunshot wound to the head.

Bonner appeared in last season's "My 600-lb Life" ... which documented his journey as he dropped more than 300 pounds.

He was 30.
