Roseanne Barr did a lot with a single selfie ... insinuating Bill Cosby brutally beat her but really just made a domestic violence joke, and at the same time showed the perils of a chemical peel.
Barr posted a photo of her swollen and badly bruised face with the caption "tussle w bill cosby."
Apparently, no one found it funny. She took it down and reposted with an explanation, saying, "Got a chemical peel to look more sexier. Joked about tussling cosby."
Better luck next time.
Hey, Trump ... Lay Off Obama!
You Don't Know JACK About Ferguson
11/25/2014 4:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Omarosa Manigault is ripping her old boss Donald Trump ... saying he's talking out of his ass when he blames President Obama for the Ferguson riots -- and Trump has no clue what's really happening there.
Omarosa -- a veteran of 3 seasons of "The Apprentice" -- tells TMZ Trump is entitled to his opinion ... but claims he's making up facts when he says Obama's weak leadership is responsible for America's racial divide.
Trump tweeted ... Obama has "no control (or respect) over the African-American community" -- and blamed him for blacks doing "so poorly" under his presidency.
Omarosa tells us ... she thinks Trump is full of BS, and claims she personally spent time in Ferguson working alongside White House personnel sent by the President to deal with the crisis.
She also says Trump is the one who's making things worse because -- "With tensions high in our community we don't need more divisiveness! And the Obama bashing is getting a bit redundant."
So much for that 4th go-round on 'Apprentice.'
Tears Into Jason Derulo
You Ungrateful SOB
11/25/2014 2:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Jordin Sparks puts even Taylor Swift to shame by mercilessly going after ex-BF Jason Derulo, calling him out as a vengeful ingrate.
Sparks' SCUD missile takes the form of a mixtape, "#BYEFELICIA," featuring "How Bout Now (Remix)" ... it's a Drake song reworked to rip Derulo.
"Member I deleted all my other guys numbers on my phone for you.
Member when you broke your neck and I had to wash your back for you.
You probably don't remember half the shit that i did for you."
And it goes on ...
"Once you blew up, head got big and you started changing.
Can't believe all the things that you started saying.
Like I'm with you for your fame and your name. What?"
The couple split back in September after a 3-year romance. After the split Jason trashed Jordin, saying she was pressuring him to marry her.
We reached out to Derulo ... so far, no word back.
Ariana Grande to Bette Midler
If I'm the Kettle,
You're the Pot
11/25/2014 10:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
2:27 P.M. PST -- Ariana just posted on Twitter, "Bette was always a feminist who stood for women being able to do whatever the F they wanted without judgement! not sure where that Bette went but I want that sexy mermaid back!!! always a fan no matter what my love"
Ariana Grande is both hurt and more than a little indignant that Bette Midler called her a whore in a recent interview, telling friends she embraces sexuality on stage -- JUST LIKE BETTE DID.
Midler pissed off Grande with her comment, "It's always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering on a couch," adding, "You don't have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead."
People close to Ariana tell us, the singer is "shocked" Midler called her out for 2 reasons ... 1) Ariana is a huge Bette Midler fan, and 2) Bette did exactly the same thing Ariana does.
Truth be told ... when Bette Midler hit big in the '70s ... she was overtly sexual and raunchy on stage.
Ariana, You Don't Have To Be a Whore
11/24/2014 3:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Bette Midler just took direct aim and fired at Ariana Grande, telling her she acts like a whore for nothing.
Midler did an interview with The Telegraph, grousing about the state of the music biz. She's particularly disgusted with Grande, saying, "It's always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch."
Midler goes on, "... Looking so ridiculous. I mean it's silly beyond belief and I don't know who's telling her to do it."
And then the punch. In giving advice to aspiring singers, Midler says, "Trust your talent. You don't have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead."
It's interesting. In the 70s Midler was considered to have one of the raunchiest acts around.
Halle to Gabriel
You're Trying to Make Our Daughter White!
11/24/2014 11:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Halle Berry just took Gabriel Aubry to court ... claiming he's trying to make their 6-year-old daughter white.
Halle was furious Gabriel was straightening Nahla's naturally-curly hair, lightening it with highlights and she is convinced it's because he does not want the girl to appear to be African American.
Halle didn't show in court Monday morning, but her lawyer Steve Kolodny did, along with Gabriel and after a lot of arguing the judge ruled NEITHER Halle nor Gabriel could change Nahla's look from its natural state.
So the judge is allowing Nahla's hair to grow back naturally.
Score one for Berry.
Miley And I Have NOTHING in Common
11/24/2014 8:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus -- both Disney disciples and current pop icons -- have cut ties ... so says Demi.
During a radio interview with AMP in Boston, Demi stumbled when asked about her relationship with Miley, but ultimately said the two of them have NOTHING in common.
It's a big statement. The 2 have been friends since they were young, but have been rumored to be on the outs for a while ... especially after Demi became sober. Now Demi has made it pretty clear.
Cue the wrecking ball.

Tell Shaq I Would Dominate Him
... In a Free Throw Contest
11/21/2014 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
It's "The 'Stache" vs. "The Diesel" ... Magnum P.I. vs. Kazaam ... old guy vs. older guy ... 'cause Tom Selleck is calling out Shaq ... telling TMZ Sports he'd crush the big fella in a free throw contest.
Tom was at LAX when our camera guy asked the former USC basketball player who would win if he took on Shaq Daddy in a battle from the charity stripe.
Check out the vid -- when he realizes we're just talking about a free throw shooting competition, Tom TOTALLY calls out O'Neal, not only saying he'd win ... but telling us to tell Shaq he's calling him out.
For the record -- Tom scored only 4 total points for USC, but Shaq missed over 5,000 free throws during his NBA career, so I guess we're saying ...
It's a toss up.
Folds Like Cheap Suit
After Fat Shaming
11/21/2014 8:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
50 Cent crossed the line, and he knows it ... retreating big time after taking a shot at Diddy and his competing vodka ... at the expense of an overweight woman.
50 is now endorsing EFFEN Vodka and decided the best way to promote his brand was to go after the competition ... Diddy and Ciroc. But the way he did it was super offensive, posting a photo of Diddy grinding up against a large woman ... equating Ciroc with banging large chicks.
It didn't take long for people to go on the attack, and 50 just waived the white flag by pulling down the post and pretending it never happened.
So much for his EFFEN cheap shot.
Fires Back At Eminem
I'm 'Bored' Of Your Rape Threats
11/21/2014 6:59 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Iggy Azalea is beefing with ANOTHER huge rapper -- blasting Eminem for saying he's going to rape her in a new rap song.
Em went after Azalea in a track called "Vegas" from his upcoming album ... saying:
"So, what’s it gon’ be?
Put that sh-t away, Iggy
You gon’ blow that rape whistle on me ... scream!"
Clearly, Iggy wasn't too happy about the lyrics and fired back on Twitter:
"Im bored of the old men threatening young women as entertainment trend and much more interested in the young women getting $ trend. zzzz"
She continued, "Its especially akward because my 14 year old brother is the biggest eminem fan and now the artist he admired says he wants to rape me. nice!"
"Women in music have the bigger balls anyhow we endure much more harassment and critic."
It's interesting ... considering Iggy just wrapped up another huge rap war with Snoop ... who called her a "b*tch" and a "c**t."
Snoop eventually apologized. So far, Eminem has yet to respond to Iggy's comments.
With Disturbing 'Baywatch' Star's Peace
11/20/2014 8:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"The Bachelor" creator Mike Fleiss has been criminally charged for harassing "Baywatch" star David Charvet and his famous wife Brooke Burke ... an arrest warrant was issued, and it has to do with fake barking dogs.
The L.A. County D.A. has charged Fleiss with the crime of disturbing the peace by loud noise. As we previously reported ... Charvet and Burke complained Fleiss initiated a campaign of terror and harassment against them, making physical threats and blaring barking dog sounds at all hours from huge speakers pointing at their property.
We're told Fleiss -- who also produced "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" -- was uncooperative with police during the investigation.
Charvet and Burke tried unsuccessfully last month to get a restraining order but, presumably, the arrest should do the trick.
We reached out to Mike ... so far no word back.
