We got Tony Monday at LAX and he wasted no time ... he thinks she's seen too many 'Mission Impossible' movies ... reportedly recording private conversations with a pen.

EXCLUSIVE

You're looking at Fred Williams -- who was JUST fired from his job as the head coach of the Dallas Wings after getting into a screaming match with his boss Sunday night ... and now he's telling us why he thinks he got the chop.  

Williams -- who was the head coach from 2014 to 2018 -- was seen screaming at Wings CEO Greg Bibb after a 93-80 loss to the Mystics earlier in the day. Bibb issued a statement announcing he fired Williams a short time later. 

Williams touched down in D.C. early Monday -- and broke his silence about the situation to our photog ... telling us why HE thinks he got the axe. 

"It could be because we had some losses in row," Williams tells us. "Everything builds up. It's just the management decision."

Fred didn't seem too busted up over the move -- explaining to us this DEFINITELY won't be his last stop in the WNBA.

Dallas Wings star player Skylar Diggins-Smith seemed to agree ... saying players LOVED playing for Fred ... and they still support him after his firing.

Baker Mayfield Cockiness is a Good Thing ... Says Browns Great

8/13/2018 6:46 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Yeah, Baker Mayfield is cocky, but that's a great thing ... so says Browns legend Earnest Byner, who tells TMZ Sports the QB has the perfect mindset for bringing the franchise back to relevance.

FYI -- Byner knows all about the Browns' struggles ... he was considered the face for Cleveland's 52-year title drought, thanks to his infamous fumble in the 1987 AFC championship game.

But, Byner says he met with several new rookies and vets at a recent team dinner and was blown away by their determination to change the narrative for the historically awful Browns ... especially Baker.

"Yeah, he's cocky. That's okay. Be cocky," Byner says ... "But, also be a winner. And, the winner mentality is always learning, always growing, always developing. And, I think this guy has that."

Donald Trump to Omarosa Newly Released Audio ... I Had No Clue You Were Fired!!!

8/13/2018 6:16 AM PDT

President Trump either didn't know his Chief of Staff fired Omarosa or he played dumb ... this according to newly released audio in which Trump tells her he had no idea she got the ax.

You hear Trump faintly express regret as Omarosa explains General John Kelly gave her walking papers the day before. Monday on "Today," she said the President is nothing more than Gen. Kelly's puppet. 

Omarosa also secretly recorded her conversation with Kelly, who would not say if Trump knew he was firing her.

She told TMZ on Saturday ... she believed Trump was a racist who was trying to start a race war. Omarosa says she heard an audio of an outtake of "The Apprentice" in which Trump allegedly used the n-word.

The White House has lashed out at Omarosa, saying she's a liar and a disgruntled former employee. Trump himself just lit into her, apparently in response to the new audio, saying she was "wacky" and "begged" him for the administration role.  

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Thoughts on Omarosa? ... Like 45 Says, SAD!

8/12/2018 2:01 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is parroting what her boss says A LOT regarding Omarosa and her bombshell book -- and alleged recordings -- on President Trump ... any guesses?

We got the White House Press Secretary leaving Reagan International in D.C. Sunday where our camera guy asked what she made of the one-time Trump staffer and longtime loyalist peddling her new "explosive" and "jaw-dropping" publication, 'Unhinged,' about the Prez.

Sarah says Omarosa's showing her true colors in the wake of being fired by Chief of Staff John Kelly -- whom she recorded too btw -- and thinks it's simply a SAD! state of affairs.

Oh, and remember SHB was said to be getting extra security after getting kicked out of The Red Hen restaurant a few months back? Check out the muscle all around her ... it's true.

Lindsay Lohan Sorry for 'Weak' #MeToo Comment Didn't Mean It Like That

8/12/2018 12:41 PM PDT

Lindsay Lohan is backtracking on some eyebrow-raising comments she made about #MeToo -- calling women who speak out as looking "weak" -- and is setting the record straight.

LiLo issued a statement Sunday apologizing for her remarks and any harm inflicted. She says ... "The quote solely related to my hope that a handful of false testimonies out of a tsunami of heroic voices do not serve to dilute the importance of the #MeToo movement, and all of us who champion it."

She continues ... "However, I have since learned how statements like mine are seen as hurtful, which was never my intent. I’m sorry for any pain I may have caused."

The original comment came out recently in a Times interview, in which she criticized some women for coming out with their stories of sexual abuse way after the fact -- rather than address it in the moment -- and added speaking out now made strong women "look weak."

She's clearing that up now though, insisting she has "the utmost respect and admiration for the women brave enough to come forward and speak out about their experiences."

Omarosa I Recorded My Firing from White House ... See, I Didn't Go Nuclear!!!

8/12/2018 7:40 AM PDT

Omarosa apparently knew what was coming when she got the ax from White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, because she recorded it all on her cellphone. 

The Trump ally turned enemy was on "Meet the Press" Sunday, and played the tape. She says it proves stories that she had to be dragged out of The White House during that XMAS party in December, 2017 were false.

You hear Kelly tell Omarosa the firing can be done one of 2 ways ... the easy way or the hard way. He says if she chooses the later it will create difficulty with respect to her reputation.

Kelly also says he's firing her because of "serious integrity violations." He actually says more ... that the violation involves "money issues" and "legal issues" that could make it ugly for her. He says she'd be subject to legal action, but that wouldn't be necessary if she quietly exits.

BTW ... the audio does reveal how she exited.

HGTV -- the house remodeling network with wholesome hosts -- is PISSING OFF neighbors with their 'Brady Bunch' house expansion plans ... 'cause they fear lasting chaos.

Various neighbors on the San Fernando Valley street where the iconic house sits are fuming at the prospect of HGTV's production turning their sleepy enclave into a massive construction zone.

Neighbors are dreading the construction noise, street congestion, traffic, lookie-loos and HGTV production trucks as cameras chronicle the remodel.

Neighbors just wanna know from HGTV ... how long y'all gonna take on this project?

NASA Logo Designer Bashes Trump's Space Force

8/12/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump's amateurish designs for potential Space Force logos are out-of-this-world bad ... so says the artist who created an older NASA logo.

Richard Danne -- the designer of a NASA logo from 1975 -- went off on Trump's Space Force artwork. 

Danne ripped into the designs released by the Trump Administration ... telling TMZ, "This logo effort is typical of the present administration: impulsive, ill-advised, superficial, and second-rate."

Tell us how you really feel, Richard!!!

"A random student from the Los Angeles Art Center could put these logos to shame ... They are, in a word: sophomoric!"

Richard is peeved some of the Space Force designs were lifts from past NASA logos.

"The images are totally derivative from NASA graphics but are -- All flash and no substance, and comical really." 

Count Danne among those NOT rooting for the proposed Space Force to get off the ground. 

Shane Mosley De La Hoya Was Better Than Floyd ... In Their Primes

8/12/2018 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Oscar De La Hoya was past his prime when he fought (and lost to) Floyd Mayweather -- but prime Oscar woulda beat Floyd's ass ... so says Shane Mosley

The boxing superstar fought both guys -- and beat Oscar twice -- and tells TMZ Sports he's convinced De La Hoya was the better fighter overall. 

Here's a transcript of what Shane told Mike Babcock when he came to the TMZ office. 

Babcock: If you take Oscar, Manny and Floyd, all at their best …

Mosely: Oscar. I think Oscar would’ve been the top one.

Babcock: Really?

Mosely: Yeah.

Babcock: Floyd likes to call himself "The Best Ever" …

Mosely: Nah.

We also asked who hit the hardest -- and that answer was surprising too. 

Shane also fought Canelo Alvarez -- and says he's convinced Canelo would beat Floyd Mayweather if they fought right now. 

Omarosa Trump's Trying to Start a Race War ... And There's Lots of Sex in White House!!!

8/11/2018 6:46 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump is not only a racist ... he's trying to start a race war -- so says his former White House counselor Omarosa ... and she also says lots of people were getting it on in the West Wing.

We got the newly-minted author Saturday at Reagan National Airport in D.C., and she wasn't mincing words. She thinks Trump's attack on LeBron James is part of a campaign to inflame the country and pit blacks against whites.

She hawks her book during the conversation, but drops some pretty salacious tidbits. She says there's someone in The White House with the nickname, White House Barbie.

She also says people were "getting it on" at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, and even drops a famous name.

NFL's Cam Jordan Rips Donald Trump What a Goober!!

8/10/2018 8:26 AM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump's most recent rant on the NFL's anthem controversy has Cam Jordan PISSED OFF ... with the superstar calling POTUS an "overly insecure prepubescent child."

Trump lashed out at NFL players who continued to take a knee during the "Star-Spangled Banner" this morning ... calling for them to either stand or face suspension.

The Saints Pro Bowler went to his own Twitter to tee off on Trump on Friday ... saying, "Only way to say it. What a Goober. He is who I thought he was."

"Guy is 70+ yr old acting out in what was once the highest respected political position, as a overly insecure prepubescent child..."

FYI -- Jordan was one of the several Saints players to sit during the anthem last season ...  and had talks with Drew Brees about promoting social justice while respecting the flag at the same time.

But, clearly, we still know where Cam stands.

"He won’t govern himself, give him a mentor? Right, members of his cabinet left on their own accord or were dismissed accordingly... But what do I know I’m just a guy who should stick to football."

Omarosa I Heard Trump Use Racial Slurs

8/10/2018 8:03 AM PDT

9:55 AM PT -- Sarah Huckabee Sanders has just responded on behalf of the White House, calling Omarosa a "disgruntled former White House employee" who is "trying to profit off these false attacks."

8:42 AM PT -- George just released a statement, saying, "The allegation is not credible, and indeed is ridiculous, particularly in light of the timing of her departure from the White House -- December 12, 2017. It's absurd all around."

Although Conway does not specify why the timing is significant, it appears the majority of his public criticism of 45 came well after Omarosa's departure.

Omarosa says she has dirt on Donald Trump ... and it's racial.

Omarosa -- who briefly worked for the Trump Administration -- claims in her upcoming book, "Unhinged," she witnessed Trump use racial epithets in talking about the husband of White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway.

According to Omarosa, Trump referred to George Conway, who is half Filipino, as a "Flip" and a "Goo-goo."

Omarosa also says there are tapes that exist in which Trump used the n-word on the set of the TV show, "Celebrity Apprentice."

The Guardian first reported her claims.
