Keaton Jones' Mom Those Confederate Pics ... Supposed to Be 'Ironic and Funny'

12/12/2017 6:46 AM PST
Breaking News

Keaton Jones' mother is defending her social media posts with the Confederate flag and insisting she and her family are not racists.

Kimberly Jones told 'GMA' the photos were intended to be "extreme" and "ironic and funny."

Kimberly said she would take it back if she could. She's made her social media pages private since the backlash started.

As TMZ first reported, Kimberly's posts also hindered online fundraising efforts. One GoFundMe account, which raised $58k for Keaton's case, is now on hold. The person who started the page stresses he has nothing to do with Kimberly ... and only wants to help Keaton. 

Mark Hamill Ditches Wheelchair Signs Point to True Fans!!!

11/30/2017 10:41 AM PST

Mark Hamill's no longer two-wheeling it ... and he's even got a pep to his step.

Luke Skywalker was back on his feet Thursday on his way to 'GMA' to promote 'The Last Jedi.' Mark stopped on his way out to sign autographs, took a pic with a fan and even struck a pose.

It was a huge difference from when we saw him at JFK Monday ... slumped in a wheelchair and doing his best to cover his mug. As we reported, Mark said he was just trying to avoid autograph seekers who "gouge true fans later on eBay."

Guess he didn't want to Force the point any further.

Matt Damon & George Clooney Weinstein Was an A**hole! But We Never Witnessed Him Preying on Women

10/23/2017 7:32 AM PDT

Harvey Weinstein was proudly a bully and a womanizer -- but kept his sexual preying on women secret from his inner circle ... according to Matt Damon and George Clooney.

Matt spoke out about the Weinstein scandal Monday on 'GMA,' and said he'd never seen Harvey assault anyone, but was aware of the Gwyneth Paltrow incident. Still, he says he only saw Weinstein treat Gwyneth "incredibly respectfully."

George said it was beyond infuriating that Weinstein was silencing women, but thinks the scandal will finally shut down the infamous casting couch ... IF Hollywood reacts the right way.

Weinstein ended a one-week rehab treatment program. As for second chances -- Clooney and Damon don't sound too open to the idea.

Taylor Swift Phantom 'GMA' Gig Ain't Happenin' ... Sorry, Swifties!

8/30/2017 4:06 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift fans got duped hard into thinking she was following up her record-breaking single and music vid debut with a live performance, but someone pulled a fast one ... TMZ has learned.

Fans thought Taylor was appearing on 'GMA' Thursday morning due to a DIRECTV search of her name which brought up 2 movies and 'GMA.' Yes, Taylor was in the 'Hannah Montana' movie and 'The Lorax' -- but NO, she will absolutely not be on ABC Friday morning.

Our sources at the network say Taylor's not scheduled to perform or sit down for an interview. It's unclear why 'GMA' was included in the search results, but feel free to adjust your DVRs.

We're guessing she'll pop up somewhere soon though when and if "Look What You Made Me Do" hits #1, as it's expected to do.

GMA's Lara Spencer This Just In .... My Body's Straight Fire!!!

8/10/2017 3:27 PM PDT

There once was a newswoman in Nantucket ... 

Whose body was so bangin', everyone wanted to ... compliment it. 

Here's 48-year-old Lara Spencer absolutely MURDERING a striped blue bikini this week while vacationing with her family in Massachusetts. 

Bonus points for the alcoholic (we think) beverage. 

BTW, Lara is a former division 1 college athlete -- she was on the diving team at Penn State. Now, she keeps in shape by playing tennis and running. 

Does a body good. 

Blac Chyna Rob Doesn't Respect Me So He Can Tell it To the Judge

7/10/2017 6:25 AM PDT

Blac Chyna says Rob Kardashian treats her like dirt and she had no option but to take him to court.

We'll be at the hearing which is set for 8:30 AM PT.

United Airlines CEO We Gotta Use Common Sense ... Vows No Repeat Dragging

4/12/2017 6:42 AM PDT
Breaking News

United's CEO, Oscar Munoz, is promising cops will never board another one of his flights to remove a booked passenger again.

Munoz also apologized again to Dr. David Dao, his family and all passengers who witnessed the now infamous dragging of Dao. During his 'GMA' interview ... he added the airline would be looking into policy changes ... including the forceful removal of passengers.

He's clearly aware of the social media backlash over his initial use of "re-accommodate" to describe the incident, and made an effort to explain the poor choice of words.

Let the mea culpa tour begin ... especially after United's Tuesday stock fall wiped $255 mil off its market cap.

Megyn Kelly & Lara Spencer Near Collision at JFK Feeling Frigid in NYC

1/10/2017 7:43 AM PST

Lara Spencer and Megyn Kelly may have hugged, kissed or schmoozed before the camera rolled, but it certainly wasn't apparent from what we see at baggage claim at JFK.

The 'GMA' host and the soon-to-be NBC talk show host were feet from each other Monday night, but not a word was spoken ... at least as far as we can see.

ABC and NBC are in fierce competition, but then again competitive anchors still chew the fat.  

At the very least, the video's entertaining.

ABC News BUSTED Faked Crime Scene for Live Shot

11/4/2016 12:36 PM PDT
Breaking News

When is a crime scene not really a crime scene?? When ABC News FAKES IT for a live TV shot.

Viewers at home watched live Friday morning as Linsey Davis reported in front of what appeared to be a crime scene in South Carolina ... where a woman had allegedly been held captive in a storage container by a sex offender. 

Problem was ... the crime scene tape was just a TV prop to make it look like she was in front of the real crime scene ... and the lie was exposed in a photo obtained by CNN. 

You can clearly see the yellow tape was tied to production equipment to give the illusion Davis was reporting right from the scene of the investigation. The segment aired on "Good Morning America."

ABC News is placing the blame on the field producer -- saying, "As soon as it was brought to our attention, we decided to take the producer out of the field, and we're investigating further."

"This action is completely unacceptable and fails to meet the standards of ABC News," ABC News' VP of Communication said in a statement.

By the way, this isn't the first time Davis has been in the headlines this week -- she was the reporter who interviewed Lil Wayne for 'Nightline' when he ranted about Black Lives Matter and stormed out of the interview

Tim Tebow Baseball Is My Passion Now ... I Love It

It's not about the money or the fame ... Tim Tebow says he's simply pursuing a baseball career for the love of the game.

Tebow appeared on "Good Morning America" in NYC Monday morning -- even though he's got a game tonight in Arizona -- and told Robin Roberts he's having a blast playing minor league baseball. 

"I’m so passionate about the game and pursuing it and playing every day is just so much fun," Tebow said ... "It’s amazing when you do something for the love of it."

Tebow also opens up about how he bounced back after getting pushed out of the NFL -- "I’ve been told by a lot of different teams that I’m not good enough so how do you handle that?" 

"For me, it’s to be able to have a foundation of something bigger than yourself, understand what God says about you, that you are important, that you have a life of significance and you have a life of meaning."

Laila Ali Dad Was 'Trapped Inside His Body' ... 'Not Suffering Anymore'

6/6/2016 7:19 AM PDT

Laila Ali says she has "comfort" in knowing her father is "not suffering anymore" ... saying she felt Muhammad Ali was "trapped inside of his body" during his battle with Parkinson's. 

Ali spoke with Robin Roberts on 'GMA' and said all 9 of Ali's children flew in to Arizona to be with their dad in his final moments. 

Laila says some of her sisters recited Islamic prayers at his bedside -- she says it was "a very peaceful time."

Laila says she's also grateful her 5-year-old daughter, Sydney, got to spend time with the legend in the years before he passed. She even tells some heartwarming family stories. 

#RIP.

Michael Strahan New Job ... Old Smile Returns

5/17/2016 7:46 AM PDT

Michael Strahan's wide grin Tuesday morning on "Good Morning America" said it all -- there's no more bitterness or awkwardness to deal with at the office.

Days after he and Kelly Ripa parted ways ... Strahan's happily working his new full-time gig with 'GMA.'

Parting isn't always such sweet sorrow. Sometimes it's just sweet. 

Michael Strahan Leaving 'Live' for Good in Two Weeks

4/26/2016 9:54 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Michael Strahan's getting the hell outta dodge months earlier than anticipated -- instead of staying at 'Live' through the summer, he'll be gone in just over 2 weeks. 

Sources connected to the show tell us Michael's last day will be Friday, May 13. We're told an internal memo went around to the show staff Tuesday morning ... just as Kelly Ripa finally returned to the show.

The memo reads: "After meeting with the producers of both 'Live' and "Good Morning America," and after speaking with Kelly and Michael, we have decided on a plan that best advantages both shows for the future."

"To that end, Michael's last day on 'Live' will be Friday, May 13, which not only gives the show the chance to have an appropriate send off for him during the May sweeps, but to also immediately give Kelly and the producers an opportunity to begin the on-air search for a new co-host."

When Strahan's move to 'GMA' was announced, Disney said he'd be at 'Live' through August -- but that was before Ripa staged her protest

The memo also said, "This plan also allows 'GMA' to start integrating Michael into the show more often this summer before his full-time start in September."
