Caught on Tape! Best of '06

12/31/2006 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Richards: Click to watch
TMZ's biggest video of the year was Michael Richards' n-bomb heard round the world. Richards, famous for playing Cosmo Kramer on "Seinfeld," erupted with a racial tirade after some audience members started heckling the comedian's stand-up act. What came out of Richards' mouth was shocking and extremely profane, and led to the subsequent banning of the n-word from The Laugh Factory.

On a lighter note, 2006 saw the demise of Britney and K-Fed's marriage, and the unlikely pairing of the Britster with the one and only Paris Hilton. The two took Sin City by storm, with Spears partying so hard she lost her pants. Hey, at least she has something covering her no-no special place!

Britney continued the panty parade by shaking her barely covered butt in front of a window at her 25th birthday party. Nothin' but pure class with this one.

Paris Hilton & Brandon Davis
Firecrotch. It's now an infamous term, and it started right here with Greasy Bear himself, Brandon Davis. The oil heir unleashed a torrent of nasty comments about Lindsay Lohan, while club-hopping Paris Hilton laughed with approval. The "firecrotch incident," has spawned several copycat outbreaks and even an official song, but nothing beats the original rant.
Lindsay Lohan: Click to watch
Lindsay Lohan showed a whole different fiery side when she lashed out at one of our cameramen. After trying to sneak out of a Spazmatics show while escorted by bodyguards holding a sheet in front of her, Lindsay told our photog to "F**k off and die!" Real friendly Lindsay, thanks.
Woody Harrelson: Click to watch
Another celeb who was less-than-thrilled to be caught by TMZ cameras was Woody Harrelson, who became irritated with cameraman Josh Levine and asked him to stop filming. When Levine refused, Harrelson broke the camera and grabbed Levine's neck. No charges were filed.
Beyonce Knowles: Click to watch
Aren't ambushes fun? TMZ obtained video of two PETA members confronting Beyonce at Nobu in New York City. The two won an eBay competition to dine with the star, who has a fashion line which uses fur. They ambushed her after placing their dinner orders. The PETA members pulled out a portable DVD player and began playing a tape of Pamela Anderson's attack on the fur industry, which highlights graphic footage of the process of killing animals for their fur. The look on Beyonce's face alone is worth a view.
Model falls twice: Click to watch
A hot model falling on the runway ... twice... with a bucket of water in her hand. Need we say more?
Screech Sex Tape: Click to watch
It's Screech like you've never seen him and probably didn't want to. TMZ obtained portions of the "Saved by the Bell" star's sex tape. The tape begins with Dustin Diamond in a bathtub, narrating what's to come. It ends with him introducing one of the women to a "Dirty Sanchez." Ick!
Tara Reid denied: Click to watch
And finally, quite possibly the funniest/most pathetic video in our one-year history: Tara Reid being denied entrance to Hyde. The once-hot actress was shunned by the club's doorman as Paris Hilton and her new BFF, Kim Kardashian, sauntered past the velvet rope. You can practically see her heart breaking. Reid has since made it past the velvet rope, but she'll always be remembered as of of the first celebs to be denied from Hyde.

my opinion    

2007 is going to be very interesting if those who have something to hide come into contact with the cell phone cameras of the general public. I thank those who expose these celebrities for who they really are and how degrading they are to women. The celebrity "handlers" put such spin on the goings on of their clients that I want to see the stars speak, fall, cuss and rant for themselves. Then I can decide if I want to spend my money and time on their movies, records or books.

This goes for the male celebs too. I have to give them a break since the female idiots far out number the men.

Keep up the good work all you photographers.

Wow. 2006 "revealed" more of and about these stars than one would ever want to know----the general public is becoming more and more discriminating by the day on the lack of comparable morals with these celebrities.....
As Elizabeth points out above, I for one am giving up on going to the movie theater and buying their CD's--who wants to support such bad behavior and irresponsibility? I hope that their publicists recommend these narcissists to good psychiatrists although in Hollywood that might be a conflict of interest....

Woody Harrilson, WTF has he been doing? I haven't seen him in no movies man. I always get a little laugh when I think of his line in "The Thin Red Line" when he gets blown in half and says "I CAN'T F*** NO MO! I CAN'T F*** NO MO!"

Screech is pimpin', give him props. How many times did he get shot down when he was tryin' to get a piece of that black tail in SBTB?!

That guy with Paris is dumbass. He needs to be stuck at gunpoint, blindfolded, taken to an ATM and then thrown in a trunk.

Beyonce must've been caught rockin' one of those trademark Sean John raccoon dog parkas... All the rage this year! Diddy you're a fool for that one!

Tara is so damn hot it's just damn.... Wheres my bottle of Jergins?

Everyone have a safe New Year!

Dr. M    

I teach at an African-American school -

And although the ' N ' word is forbidden -

They constantly call each other "nigger" -

When I turn them in to the administration -

Nothing is done -

I am the only "white" on campus -

Why is it "OK" for them to call each other this name ?

And NOT in a "nice" way -

They know the power of the word - but - they use it anyway -

Anyone ?

2007 will be the year Britney can cover her a@#^. Since we were forced to look at it by the Press. Her Ex. is looking more and more respectable. She is a real class act.

Anything positive you see here about Paris Hilton was written by Paris Hilton. She is completely self-absorbed and thinks the rest of us are pathetic little poor people with nothing better to do than bitch about her, the truth is we bitch about her because we can’t stand her and her slutty bigoted behavior. She thinks that she is soooo much better than the rest of us and that she is above the law, she is such a pathetic little wannabee princess who thinks the world should worship her and grovel at her feet. Parisite is the worst kind of celebrity because she has done NOTHING worthy of credibility nor does she have any talent, except for flashing her herpes ridden crotch at the paparazzi. Parisite is the worst role model in the world for young girls because all she encourages them to do with her behavior is to look and act like sluts.
Also, that person saying that all of the hate blogs were posted by one person is also Parisite, there is no way that one person could possibly write all of these blogs because of the times they were written, they would have to sit at their computer day and night and no one could do that, and anyway why would anyone waste their time writing about that skank anyway, it’s ludacrice. Parisite WILL NOT last for ever, soon she will be too old and ugly from all that partying and binge drinking, not to mention the coke sniffing, and no one will want to have a bar of her, hell even the animals hate her, that’s why her fucking pets keep running away from her. The only reason people are still taking her picture is because there are still dumb assess out there who will Falk over money for that skanks picture (losers) if it wasn’t for them no one would bother.
Parasite needs to come back down to earth and take the cotton wool out of her ears and then maybe she will realize how stupid she is. Everyone is waking up to what a moron you are parasite you skank, why do you think that there are so many people on here posting this stuff about you. If everyone boycotts parasite by not purchasing anything with her name on it, or any product she endorses, and by NOT watching crap shows she appears in like the simple life, or by NOT having anything to do with anything else associated with her, WHY THE HELL SHOULD WE SPEND OUR HARD EARNED CASH LINING THAT WORTHLES TRAMPS ALREADY BULGING POCKETS.
