Darren Criss I'm Playing Versace's Killer as a Person ... Not a Murderer

1/17/2018 10:08 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Darren Criss gave us a peek into the serial killer he's playing in tonight's premiere of 'Gianni Versace: American Crime Story' ... and it sounds like he gave his murderous character some humanity.

Darren was leaving the AOL building in New York City Tuesday, when our photog asked about his portrayal of Andrew Cunanan, who murdered 5 people including Versace before committing suicide.

The actor gave us a hint as to how he's playing him, which probably will not sit well with the members of the Versace family, who have vowed to boycott the series. The family has called the show a "work of fiction."

Fact is ... there's a huge buzz over Ryan Murphy's latest series, which premieres Wednesday on FX.

Kylie Jenner Photo of 'CVS Kylie' Ain't Kylie

1/17/2018 8:12 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner definitely looked pregnant as she roamed the aisles at CVS ... is what we would say if it was really Kylie Jenner -- but it's not.

Our Jenner-connected sources concede there's a vague similarity, but the woman in the baggy green hoodie, sunglasses, Kylie-style hair and plump lips simply isn't her.

There have been a slew of stories in the last day ballyhooing the first photo of pregnant Kylie in the famous Rx store, but she remains in hiding.

We're told Kylie almost never leaves her house as she grows during her pregnancy. She's due in March and no one has gotten a shot of her since she began showing.

We haven't seen a full body shot of Kylie in months.

WWE's Eva Marie 'I'm an Alcoholic' ... Went to Jail for DUIs

1/17/2018 7:54 AM PST
Breaking News

Former WWE superstar Eva Marie says she is, and always will be, an alcoholic ... and her disease almost cost her everything before she was able to come to terms with it.

"I will be an alcoholic for the rest of my life ... and admitting that truth saved my life," Eva wrote in an essay for InStyle

Eva says she's been sober 5 years, but hit "rock bottom" prior to coming to WWE -- serving 3 months behind bars for multiple DUIs, and struggling in her personal and professional life.

Thankfully, the "Total Divas" star was able to enter into a 12-step program to get clean ... and says she still attends AA meetings every week to avoid falling off the wagon.

Eva's killing it as a fashion designer and fitness model these days ... but says she's still in a constant battle with alcoholism -- "This fairytale life is always one drink away from shattering."

Kim and Kanye We're Not Selling Baby Pics ... It's Just Immoral

1/17/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been offered multi-million dollar deals to provide first photos of their new baby ... and they have REJECTED all of them.

Sources familiar with the offers tell TMZ, various websites and magazines started making offers months ago. All of the offers were north of a million dollars and several outlets offered between $2 and $5 million.

The offers were never entertained ... they were immediately rejected. We're told Kim and Kanye would never consider taking money for the first photos of the baby ... doing so would violate their morals.

But there's more ... Kim and Kanye place the security and safety of their family above all else. They realize the media will eventually get pictures of the baby but they want to do it on their own timetable ... when they're comfortable the safety of the baby is secured. 

As for what they've done in the past ... Kim and Kanye posted the first pic of North 2 months after she was born. As for Saint, they also waited 2 months.

So check Kim's Instagram in March.

Paris Jackson I'll Say, Say, Say It ... Paul McCartney Rocked My World!!!

1/17/2018 8:13 AM PST

Paris Jackson tried to play it off pretty cool while hanging with her father's old pal, Paul McCartney ... but don't be fooled, she totally lost it.

Paris hung with Paul Tuesday night in L.A. at his daughter Stella McCartney's Autumn/Winter clothing line bash. We're guessing part of the reason she freaked is Michael Jackson's history with Paul -- two top 10 hits, and the whole Beatles catalog deal.

Goldie Hawn was front row with Stella, while Kate Hudson shot video ... and it's easy to see why everybody geeked out -- Paul's still got it!

Breaking News

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is coming clean with Uncle Sam -- he's agreed to plead guilty in his tax evasion case in New Jersey.

The Department of Justice and the U.S. Attorney's Office in New Jersey filed docs, obtained by TMZ, informing the judge about the "Jersey Shore" star's plea. It's unclear which charges Mike pled guilty to, and if he struck a deal ... though all signs point to a plea deal.

Mike's brother, Marc, also faced criminal charges and also agreed to plead guilty.

We broke the story ... Mike allegedly failed to pay his full tax bill on $8.9 million in earnings made between 2010 and 2012. Prosecutors had said he intentionally filed fraudulent returns to make it look like he was all good with the IRS.

Tom Cruise Fails Again During 'MI6' Stunt ... Nothing Broken, We Think

1/17/2018 8:04 AM PST

Tom Cruise should really consider getting a stunt double, 'cause he screwed up another jump on the set of "Mission: Impossible 6" ... and might've injured himself again.

Filming resumed in London this week, and in this clip you see Cruise attempt to leap onto the ledge of a window ... but he slips on something before he gets out.

A cameraman on the scene says the actor was later seen using crutches, but there are no pics and we haven't confirmed.

It's strange -- Tom appeared to have nailed this exact scene last week, unclear why he did it again. As we reported ... he's fresh off a broken ankle from a failed jump on the set last year.

We've got a call in to Tom's camp for an injury update, but our advice -- let the stuntmen do their thing, Tom. It's all good ... we promise.

Larry Nassar Victims Speak in Court (Day 2) Here's Why You're a Scumbag

1/16/2018 6:33 AM PST
Breaking News

The victims of Larry Nassar are continuing their impact statements on Wednesday ... telling the disgraced ex-Team USA doctor to his face why he's a piece of human garbage. 

Nassar sexually assaulted more than 100 women and girls -- the majority of them in his capacity as the team doc for Olympic Women's Gymnastics and Michigan State University. His victims include McKayla MaroneyAly RaismanGabby Douglas and Simone Biles.

Nassar will be sentenced on 7 first-degree sexual assault charges later this week -- but first, his victims are getting the opportunity to address the court and lobby for whatever punishment they see fit.

No surprise, many of his victims who told their stories on Tuesday wanted the judge to throw the book at Nassar. A maximum sentence would essentially ensure he spends the rest of his life behind bars. 

Burn in hell, scumbag.

N.J. Gov Phil Murphy Sworn In Post-Christie Don't Look Down

1/17/2018 7:56 AM PST

Phil Murphy is officially New Jersey's next governor post-Chris Christie -- but, while he was taking his oath ... the guy's oldest kid was busy honoring "Malcolm in the Middle."

Phil's eldest son, Josh Murphy, flashed the OK sign below his waist for the tail end of his father's swearing-in Tuesday -- which means he was playing the infamous Circle Game.

In case you aren't familiar, the game was made famous by the hit 2000s show in which the characters prank each other by making someone look down at a circle formed below the belt ... which then gives 'em the right to punch the poor sap.

Unclear why Josh did it (a bit too old, no?) ... but, technically, he probably owes most of New Jersey a hard sock to the arm. Us included, actually.

Taylor Swift Gonna Ca$h in My 'Big Reputation' and My John Hancock!!!

1/17/2018 7:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift is banking on her reputation ... check that, her "Big Reputation," and ditto on her signature.

The singer's company -- TAS Rights Management, LLC -- filed docs to lock down the rights to "Big Reputation" ... which is a lyric in her song "End Game," off her latest album, "Reputation."

Taytay's looking to slap "Big Reputation" on a bunch of merch -- including sunglasses, cell phone cases, pajamas and gloves. She's also locking down her "Taylor Swift" signature ... for bathrobes, hair pins, dolls and toy glow sticks.

It's interesting ... she's been hawking merch with her signature since 2009, but the trademark move would give her more legal protection against knockoffs. Take that, piracy!

Ann Curry Verbal Sexual Harassment 'Pervasive' at NBC

1/17/2018 5:59 AM PST

Ann Curry makes it clear ... the conduct that got Matt Lauer fired from anchoring "Today" was no surprise to her ... because she says that was the culture at NBC.

Curry appeared on "CBS This Morning" Wednesday to talk about her experiences with Lauer and others.  She clearly knew the anchors were going to zero in on her former co-host yet seemed reluctant to open up ... though she did.

Curry left the show in 2012 after a tumultuous run as Lauer's co-anchor. It was rumored the 2 had an intense dislike for each other and many thought Lauer was behind Curry's ousting.

Kim Kardashian See This Bod? Cranked Out 3 Babies

1/17/2018 7:21 AM PST

Kim Kardashian's body is snapping back in record time! Ditto for her sense of humor. 

Hours after announcing she and Kanye West had a new baby girl -- via surrogate -- Kim posted this ridiculously hot shot of herself with "#momofthree." 

Based on her tongue-in-cheek post, we'd say the new mom is in a great mood.

Still no announcement on a name of the new addition to the fam -- but they had a sweet celebration Tuesday, courtesy of a cake delivery from Grandma Kris.

Hope the cake doesn't ruin Kim's bounce back diet!
