Megyn Kelly Kicks Off New Show With Kardashian Fam

4/28/2017 8:12 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Megyn Kelly will debut her new show with a sit-down with the entire Kardashian family ... minus 2.

Sources involved in the interview tell TMZ ... the reason Megyn was on the set of 'KUWTK' Thursday was to tape a very long interview with Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie, Kendall, and Kris ... everyone but Rob and CailtynRyan Seacrest, the producer and brainchild of the show, was also interviewed.

You don't see Kim in the pics, but we're told she was there.

Our sources say they were told the interview would consume Kelly's premiere Sunday night show in June on NBC.

The entire family rarely does interviews together ... nonetheless it's unclear whether Kelly walked away with a headline.

Kim discussed her Paris robbery this week on 'Ellen.'

As we reported, the NBC Prez went to Russia recently and the buzz is he was trying to score an interview with Putin. Contenders to interview the Russian Prez were Lester Holt, Matt Lauer and Megyn. If the Kardashians are the premiere show, it's safe to say Megyn's not sittin' with Putin.

Oakland Raiders Believe Gareon Conley's Innocent ... Says Ian Rapoport

4/28/2017 7:07 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Oakland Raiders "did a lot of work" investigating Gareon Conley before selecting him in the 1st round of the NFL Draft and believe he's NOT a rapist ... so says Ian Rapoport.

The NFL Network insider -- one of the best football reporters in the game -- says the Raiders dedicated serious resources to finding out as much as they could about Conley's rape case before they selected.

Conley insists he's been falsely accused of raping a woman at a Cleveland hotel on April 9. He has not been arrested or charged with a crime.

Get this, Rapoport says there was also interest from other teams -- Conley even took a lie detector test to prove he's telling the truth.

Bottom line, Ian says the Raiders were a solid team before the draft and if the Conley pick works out ... they're gonna be scary good.

FSU Coach Jimbo Fisher Dalvin Cook Shoulda Been Drafted 1st Round

4/28/2017 6:23 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher says he's shocked his former running back, Dalvin Cook, wasn't selected in the 1st round of the NFL Draft.

Cook was widely regarded as one of the best skill position players in college -- but his name wasn't called during round 1.

Two other running backs DID get the call -- Leonard Fournette and Christian McCaffrey.

Fisher is out in Philly and told us he was surprised Cook got the cold shoulder on Thursday -- but he's confident someone will pull the trigger tonight during rounds 2 and 3.

Stay tuned ...

Texans' Brian Cushing 'Excited' About Deshaun Watson

4/28/2017 6:09 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Houston Texans star linebacker Brian Cushing says he's pretty pumped for his team's new QB Deshaun Watson -- but he's not convinced he'll be the starter ... yet.

Cushing and his wife are out in Philly for the NFL Draft -- and after Houston selected the Clemson star with the #12 pick, we asked Cushing for his quick reaction.

Of course, Watson will have to battle for the #1 job with Tom Savage -- a 4th year QB out of Rutgers. 

Good luck!

Trump Tower Security's Not Leaving Even When Melania and Barron Do!!

4/28/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Trump Tower will remain what resembles a police zone -- barricades and all -- even after June when Melania and Barron Trump pack up and move to the White House.

NYPD sources tell TMZ ... security detail will remain mostly unchanged. A spokesperson said the security detail would be "adequate," but would not elaborate.

Short story ... the building will still be crawling with cops and Secret Service, there will be barricades outside the building and police outside will be ready for protests that get out of hand.

Fact is ... Donald Trump hasn't returned to NYC since he was inaugurated, favoring Mar-a-Lago on weekends. Once Melania and Barron make their move, the top penthouse will remain largely vacant for the duration of Trump's tenure as prez.

But our sources say it's still the president's home and the Secret Service and NYPD are aware he's extremely controversial and the building has become the place to go in NYC for protests ... protests that can easily get out of hand.

Law enforcement is also concerned if they let up on security it will send a message that the building is an easy target.

As for cost ... it's steep. The price tag for protection is around $100k a day, and it triples when Trump comes to town. It won't be much different after the entire family packs up and leaves.

'Silicon Valley' Star 'Bachelor' Villain Corinne And Donald Trump Both Play Dirty

4/28/2017 6:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Playing dirty on "The Bachelor" is just like the 2016 Presidential campaign ... according to "Silicon Valley" star Thomas Middleditch.

Turns out Middleditch is a huge 'Bachelor' fan and when we got him at LAX Thursday he told us he saw lots of similarities between last season's most notorious villain, Corinne Olympios, and candidate Donald Trump.

Thomas thinks Corinne's tactics weren't so far off from the ones Donald Trump employed against Hillary in the 2016 election.

Only one big difference though ... Trump won.

EXCLUSIVE

Lamar Odom stands to make a boatload of dough ... now that he's cutting ties with his Florida crib.

The former NBA star bought the Pinecrest pad back in 2003 for $2.975 million for his stint with the Miami Heat ... but he's finally ready to say deuces to the crib and possibly make a sweet profit cause he's asking for $5.2 mil!!!

LO's been renting out the 8,557 square foot house for a few years now.

The 6 bedroom, 7.5 bathroom compound sits inside an exclusive gated community, and it has all the bells and whistles -- from a grand foyer entrance and media room to a pool, spa, tennis court and, of course, a basketball court.

Bosco Vega of Douglas Elliman is repping Lamar in the sale and says working with him has been an amazing experience.

Jeb Bush Marlins Deal Isn't Done Yet ... But I Love Jeter!

4/28/2017 12:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Don't pop the champagne just yet ... Jeb Bush tells TMZ Sports he and Derek Jeter haven't officially closed the deal to buy the Miami Marlins -- though he seems confident.

It was reported earlier this week that Bush and Jeter won the auction for the MLB team -- but MLB Commish Rob Manfred says that's not true ... there's at least one other bidder in play. 

So, when we saw Jeb at Reagan National Airport on Thursday, we had to ask him about the deal and he told us, "It's not done yet."

He also praised Jeter as a "phenomenal guy."

We also asked which one of his brothers would get the better tickets if he gets the team, but Jeb made it clear he's not ready to count his chickens just yet ... 

Jefferson Starship Ex-Guitarist Sues ... Is This Gonna Stop Them Now?

4/28/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The former lead guitarist of Jefferson Starship is furious at other members for jacking the name and tarnishing the rock band's legacy ... according to a new suit.

Craig Chaquico claims 2 of this former bandmates and several other musicians are using the Jefferson Starship name, without permission, to land gigs and sell merch. Chaquico says the founding JS members all agreed to retire the name in 1985 ... and move on simply as Starship.

But according to docs ... David Freiberg and Donny Baldwin have assumed the Jefferson Starship name with a ragtag group who have no connection to the OG rockers. 

Chaquico says he did give another founding member, Paul Kantner, the right to use the name for shows, and he did while touring with Freiberg and Baldwin. However, Paul died in 2016, and Craig says the right to use JS died with him.

Chaquico wants Freiberg and Baldwin cut off from the name immediately.

FYI, Jefferson Starship -- or whatever name they end up with -- has concerts next month in Minnesota and California. Who knew??

The singer, and frequent political activist, flew back into L.A. on Thursday, and we asked if he's ready to do more than dabble in the political world. Fact is, John's been one of the most vocal opponents of everything President Trump has done ... so we wondered if that was motivating him to run for office.

His answer is direct and to the point. In other words ... totally not like a politician.

In other news ... he's happy to talk poop emojis!

EXCLUSIVE

John Paragon, the actor who played Jambi the Genie on "Pee-wee's Playhouse," is being accused by a neighbor of repeatedly screaming at her to "shut her f***ing dog up!!!" and he tells TMZ ... guilty as charged.

Elizabeth MacPherson has filed for a restraining order, claiming John has a thing against her and her dog, once screaming at her for 4 hours ... "Shut that f***ing dog up asshole." She also claims he said, "I'm going to kill that f***ing dog."

We spoke with John, who says the 200 pound, white dog barks "incessantly" and numerous neighbors have complained, to no avail. He admits he's screamed at her to "shut the f***ing dog up," and she responded by flipping him off. He says he's never nor would he threaten her physically.

John says he's filed police reports and he and various neighbors have complained to animal control and a hearing is set for June.

Elizabeth says she has video of John screaming while the dog "sits complacently in the backyard."

She also says the alleged harassment has been going on for years ... back in 2014, she says she was playing bean bags with some friends and John began screaming, "Stop throwing those f***ing bags. F*** you."

EXCLUSIVE

Kenya Moore's ex-BF, Matt Jordan, no longer has to stay away from her because a judge tossed the restraining order when she couldn't find him to serve legal docs.

Kenya's temporary restraining order was dismissed Wednesday after she was a no-show at a hearing on the matter. Kenya's lawyer tells TMZ ... she only skipped court because she knew the judge would toss it once he heard Matt hadn't been served.

You'll recall ... Kenya said Matt was blowing up her phone 30 times a day and had also threatened her. The temporary restraining order required him to stay 200 yards away from Kenya. 

Her attorney says Kenya will refile for another protective order ... but she's gonna have to locate Matt eventually.

Justin Bieber Table for One

EXCLUSIVE

There's an old saying, "No man is an island," but Justin Bieber may have disproved that Thursday during a solo lunch in bustling Bev Hills.

The Biebs was dining alone at Georgie, a restaurant attached to the Montage hotel. He was chillin' with the help of his laptop, oblivious to the ladies who were lunching around him and no doubt noticing someone famous was in their midst.

Earlier this week, the Biebs enjoyed the company of friends while dancing to Kendrick Lamar in a luxury box at the Clippers game.
