'19 Kids and Counting'

Josh Duggar on the Chopping Block

5/23/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"19 Kids and Counting" may survive the Josh Duggar molestation scandal, but Josh might not.

Connected industry sources tell TMZ, TLC is considering a number of options, weighing the pros and cons. One is to cancel the show outright, the other is to just go full steam ahead, but there is real talk about continuing without Josh.  

Our sources say there's a strong sense axing Josh would not materially hurt the show. We're told TLC has done research and it shows the daughters have become the driving force. The weddings of Jill and Jessa were ratings successes, as was the birth of Jill's baby.

It wouldn't be hard to remove Josh. He's moved away from Arkansas to D.C. where he's focused on lobbying Congress. But that could change because he just resigned from the Family Research Council.

As for cancelling the show, our sources say there is significant concern that big advertisers will bail. TMZ broke the story, General Mills has already pulled the plug.

On the other hand, we're told TLC believes the show has a strong, loyal evangelical base and so far support has not wavered.

But removing Josh could be a good middle ground for TLC. 

Stay tuned.

Kevin Durant

Oops, There Goes the Weed!!!

33 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Durant moseyed out of a Hollywood club Friday night and a Rx of weed came tumbling out of his SUV.

The Oklahoma City Thunder star chilled at Hooray Henry's, then limped out of the club with a boot covering his gimpy foot.  As the SUV door opened, what looks like a prescription bottle of weed careened out.

The real point here ... who cares if someone has weed?  It looks like it's what the doctor ordered, which would make it legal, and even if it isn't, it's not nearly as bad as texting while driving.

Hope it cures what ails ya.

You Be the Judge

TLC has a new crisis with the Josh Duggar revelations, and Bobby Flay's divorce has just gotten even nastier. So we gotta ask ...



Bobby Flay

Low Divorce Blow Over Breasts

5/23/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0522-bobby-flay-stephanie-march-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01

Bobby Flay has taken an incredibly cheap shot at his estranged wife, telling the judge in their divorce case that any medical problems she has are the result of vanity ... specifically a boob job.

We're told as part of her argument to invalidate their prenup, Stephanie March says she's been plagued by well-publicized medical problems, including a burst appendix and 3 deep infections. As a result, she says she's unable to work as an actress and the prenup would create an undo financial hardship.

Bobby has responded to Stephanie's argument, but he got surprisingly detailed, saying the infections were the result of breast enhancement surgery. It's pretty clear the point he's making is that Stephanie's problems are her own doing ... choosing to go under the knife for the sake of vanity.

Stephanie also took a shot at Bobby, saying revelations of his alleged infidelity have compromised her health and mental state.

As TMZ reported, the prenup provides a relatively meager $5k a month in support. Stephanie claims she was a key reason Bobby was able to build his empire.

Robert De Niro

Tells Art School Grads

You're F*****'

23 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

Robert De Niro inspired some very talented art school graduates to dive into the world of anti-depressants, telling them they are "opening a door to a lifetime of rejection."

It's the greatest commencement speech of the season for sure ... De Niro gave Tisch School of the 
Arts grads a glimpse into their future with some hilarious comparisons, telling them medical students will get jobs, lawyers will probably also get jobs and if they don't who cares ... they're lawyers!

But De Niro did offer sound advice, in the form of Valium and Vicodin.

He rules. 

Scott Stapp

Amazing Recovery

After Drug/Alcohol-Fueled Meltdown

5 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Stapp looks incredible after a stint in rehab following one of the most bizarre meltdowns in recent memory.

The Creed frontman and wife Jaclyn breezed into LAX Friday, and we're blown away by how good Scott looks and sounds.

You may recall his paranoid rants last November, where Scott put himself on video saying he was on the run because the CIA was trying to kill him.  Jaclyn filed legal docs trying to get him committed.

Fast forward to Friday ... he's lucid and seemingly clean.  Scott says he's looking forward to seeing their friend, Jernnifer Gimenez, who appears on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."  She's been a big part of Scott's recovery. 

We're told they're in town to appear on "Couples Therapy."

WWE Diva Sunny

I Wanna Get Slammed Between The Sheets ...

Not The Ropes

5/23/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0522-sunny-tammy-lynn-sytch-WWE-01WWE junkies can rejoice, because WWE Diva Sunny may get in the ring for a XXX face plant, because we've learned she's inclined to sign on with a huge porn company.

Sunny tells TMZ she's been mulling over Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch's 6-figure porn offer and is now 60/40 in favor of it. 

But there's a snag. Hirsch really wants the scene set in a wrestling ring, but Sunny thinks the gag has been played out. 

Sunny favors the more traditional setting, like a hotel room.  

The 42-year-old won't get flak from her boyfriend. She says her 27-year-old man is excited and wants an advance screening.

As for the lucky guy who gets to suplex Sunny ... she doesn't care who he is "as long as he's hot."

Ex 'Real Housewife' of BH

Live Streams Burglary ...

AT HER HOME!!

5/23/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0522-joyce-giraud-TMZ-01Former "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Joyce Giraud's home got hit by an alleged burglar -- and she watched the whole thing go down LIVE ... from her safe and relaxing vacation.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the male suspect scaled an exterior wall, broke into the house through a back window, and then opened the front gate to pull his car into the driveway.

An employee who was home pushed the panic button, which triggered the alarm system and its surveillance app -- allowing Joyce to watch the entire incident unfold in real time on her phone. Talk about a vacay buzzkill.

We're told nothing appears to have been taken, since cops responded immediately and nabbed the guy for burglary -- and Joyce went right back to her mimosa ... most likely.

Mike Tyson Reporting:

Cops Nailed Flavor Flav ...

They Found Some Other S**t Too

5/22/2015 3:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Trapped deep inside of Mike Tyson is an evening news anchor ... who came busting out right after Flavor Flav's latest arrest -- and the video of his "audition" is just awesome.

Tyson was on "The Damon Elliott Show" in Las Vegas -- a new talk show set to air on the CW this summer -- and while waiting for Flav, who was also a guest, they got word he'd been busted.

Sources on set Thursday ... tell us Iron Mike suddenly went all Edward R. Murrow, and decided he needed to report the news to the studio audience.

Watch, it's hardly "Nightline" -- but then again ... it's way more entertaining.

Gloria Govan

I Never Banged Colin Kaepernick

No Clue On Barnes Feud

5/22/2015 1:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ex "Basketball Wives" star Gloria Govan is so over the rumors about her and Colin Kaepernick ... she's now addressing them -- and wants everyone to know the 49ers QB never crossed her end zone.

Gloria was at the "So Sexy L.A." party at SKYBAR in West Hollywood Thursday night ... when our photog asked about her estranged hubby, Clippers star Matt Barnes, and his very public hatred of Kaepernick.

Just a few weeks ago, Barnes called Kaep "a hoe" on Instagram -- which is why our guy asked Gloria if she knew what was behind the beef.

Watch ... Gloria took the ball and ran, first telling us -- "There's been a bunch of different rumors" about her and Colin hooking up. But she says, "I've never had a thing with Colin Kaepernick."

Double G seems to think fans blame her for their feud, but she tells us it's something else altogether.

  

'19 Kids and Counting'

TLC Yanks Show From TV Schedule

5/22/2015 10:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0522-duggar-family-twitterTLC has just pulled all airings of "19 Kids and Counting" from its lineup ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ, the fate of the show is uncertain, but there's now so much heat in the wake of Josh Duggar's molestation confession ... the network had to make the decision.

We're told they absolutely have not made a long-term decision, but it's clearly a bad sign for the show.

And there's this ... a rep for General Mills tells TMZ, they have already blacklisted the show and removed it from their company's current advertising schedule. 

As we reported, TLC ran a Duggar marathon Thursday, prominently featuring Josh. There was big backlash, not the least of which came from Mama June, who felt TLC was giving the Duggars a pass for far worse conduct than hers, which caused TLC to pull the plug on 'Honey Boo Boo.'
