Dodged Bouncer Beatdown

"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?

TMZ hasn't got half the story about Philip Phillips. Do you honestly think that his parents went bankrupt after their kid won? How about they are LOUSY business folks and that's why the business is going down the toilet. You don't bailout family when they make bad choices about a family owned business.

Plus, the way the GOP got their logo, from a fat republican president ... which most people assume is due to a fat republican president making a fool of himself

I am fat so in this politically correct world I can comment on fat people. You only get this fat by eating tons of food.I speak from experience. This man is getting bigger everyday. He needs to figure out why he is eating this much. If he were an alcoholic he would be having regular blackouts. It is not funny it is sad.

About the Chris Brown Controversy. That is ridiculous. Watching TMZ Live and noticed a phone call from Tempe. I live in Mesa, AZ and what she mentioned about someone on the corner with a m-16 or ak-47 was not the whole truth. It was a 15 year old or so nephew of an uncle that made him stand on a street corner near Phoenix with an RPG dressed as a Taliban member as he was being filmed. As to your comment harvey doing it in Arizona should of been a death sentence. It looked very real. I am surprised no one took the matter into their own hands. I would have

I'm sorry, but when Parents expect their children to bail them out, that's just wrong.

So, another bad business decision by his father.

If the pawn shop parents didn't have a son who's making big money, who would they blame for their financial problems?
Seems like they're scapegoating him.

Harvey, you guys didn't mind R Kelly when he told you guys he wanted to make new chapters of "Trapped in the Closet" a few months ago. Oh, but the sex story would have taken away from your other "breaking" Story.
