"Avatar" star Sam Worthington went toe-to-toe with a massive bouncer just before getting arrested outside an Atlanta bar, at least according to the bouncer ... who called in to talk about Sam's strange behavior.

Plus, Richie Sambora dropped in to talk Hurricane Sandy relief, his new album, his daughter (with Heather Locklear) breaking into acting, and ... guitar lessons for Harvey???

Also, if Gov. Chris Christie's thinking about a presidential run in 2016 ... we've got bad news: America doesn't elect fat candidates! We tried to find one in the last century, but no dice. Not-so-deep down ... are we all fattists?

No matter what Joe is -he is a pig. NY newspapers say there is a young guy saying he is his lover.If it walks like a duck well you know the rest.

Don't care if Joe Simpson is gay or not, he should beat who ever told him that new look is good. Was a nice looking guy before this horrible makeover.

The only people that are making a big deal about Joe Simpson being gay is TMZ.

Chris Brown is a woman beater, R. Kelly is a paedophile. What more do you need?

Um, how is R. Kelly as popular as ever? If it wasn't for TMZ, I would've thought the guy blended into the woodwork. How many seats is that arena?

I did not know Chris Brown isn't popular. TMZ talks about him weekly and he still sells a ton of music, dosn't he? They both should go away.

Harvey, why hasn't Roman Polanksi not missed a beat, except his inability to come to the states?

These dudes have it wrong. R Kelly was still hot after the trial, but fell off the last 2 years. Chris Brown is as popular as ever. TMZ got this story wrong. Must be a slow day.

Harvey, she's NOT singing his praises, she's proving his able and capable of working. The fact he had his own business and then stopped working after marrying her makes him the MALE version of a Gold digger.
