092711_tmzlive

Dick Clark changed music, television ... and American pop culture in general -- and today the people who knew him best joined us with stories about his life and career. From "American Bandstand" to "New Year's Rockin' Eve" ... see how Dick influenced huge acts like Madonna, Prince, Janet Jackson, Chuck Berry and Stevie Wonder.

Plus, Kim Kardashian wants to be mayor of Glendale, CA -- but a former mayor says she's no shoe-in for the gig ... and for some reason Harvey insists on comparing Kim to Ronald Reagan!

Harvey,
.
Last week TMZ had like 4 Mel Gibson "stories" and this week, NOTHING. Are your "journalists" not following-up on what's going on? Didn't one of OG's lawyers say something about following up on the alleged death-threats?
.
Instead of following REAL celebs (like Mel), TMZ prefers to post stories about the Trash-Kanian Family.

Harvey,

TMZ is reporting the a number of African American men are suing THE BACHELOR due to racism. Maybe KIM Trash-Kanian can have her own "reality show" (same premise as BACHELOR) that's exclusively for The Afro-American male where she'll date ALL the contestants.

Kim Please run for mayor California is already bankrupt what difference will it make if one more city goes bankrupt besides that the entire police budget will go to protecting the whole kardashian klan.

How many people have to beg you not to talk about Kim the Piss Princess? It ruins my whole TMZ Live experience. Frankly I find something else to do while you talk about that skank.
