Amanda Nunes Predicts '5 Round Battle' ... with V. Shevchenko

5/15/2017 8:16 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Valentina Shevchenko is no Ronda Rousey -- and won't be disposed of in the 1st round ... so says Amanda Nunes.

Nunes is facing "Bullet" at UFC 213 -- and after things got physical at the big UFC announcement last week, we wanted to know if Amanda was planning a quick beatdown of her new rival.

"I think it's gonna be a battle," Nunes told us outside of Katsuya in Hollywood. She also predicted the fight will go the distance.

Nunes and Shevchenko fought back in March 2016 -- Nunes won that fight in a decision.

Since that fight, she destroyed Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey with 1st round finishes. In fact, 4 out of her last 5 fights were 1st round victories.

FS1's Joy Taylor Seems 49ers Sandbagging Colin Kaepernick

EXCLUSIVE

Are the 49ers trying to sabotage Colin Kaepernick

It's possible ... according to FS1 star Joy Taylor who says it seems like much of the bad info hitting the media about CK is coming from his old employer. 

Taylor went viral on social media this week for taking a strong stand for Colin on "Undisputed" with Skip and Shannon ... saying the QB is being blackballed by NFL owners for being a social justice crusader. 

In fact, Taylor says it's not just that Colin's getting the cold shoulder ... but it seems someone is trying to spread false info about him to scare potential suitors. Joy says it seems that info is coming from Santa Clara.

Taylor says there is one way Colin can fight back and it's the only way to truly set the record straight.

Phaedra Parks I Was Set Up to Get Taken Out ... Now I'm Being Harassed!!

5/11/2017 3:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra Parks is blasting 'RHOA' producers for feeding her lies and firing her when she called them out ... which has ruined her rep and led to daily threats and bullying.

Sources close to the ex-Housewife tell us she's mad as hell, because she claims a producer gave her the B.S. story she told to Porsha Williams about Kandi Burruss -- the whole drugging and raping thing.

The producer didn't necessarily tell her to repeat it with cameras rolling, but we're told Phaedra explained the producer's role during the reunion show. She's also angry because that was edited out of the reunion to make it look like she acted alone.

We're told the way Phaedra sees it, she was fired in retaliation for throwing producers under the bus.

Phaedra's been getting online threats, and as we reported ... at least one fan wants her to face even more punishment. We're told her office is also getting bombarded with hate mail, and her kids are getting harassed.

We're told Phaedra insists the 'Housewives' crew knows she's not the source of the lie.

5/11/2017 11:51 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Disick's shaking off his friends' concerns he's fallen off the wagon ... partying again with a roster full of babes!!!

Scott hit up Nobu Wednesday night around 9 PM and left shortly after 11 with a crew full of blondies. There's a chick who looks like his rumored boo -- British model Ella Ross.

As we reported ... his friends are worried sick he's fallen off the wagon and gone back to his hardcore partying all over L.A. to get back at Kourtney Kardashian for banging a 24-year-old model.

Before last night's festivities ... Scott was at TAO on Cinco de Mayo and The Peppermint Club Monday night.

His friends tell us ... don't be fooled by appearances. The guy's hurting.

Blake Griffin Doc's Gotta Trade His Ass ... Says Ex-Clips Teammate

5/11/2017 10:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If the Clippers wanna win next year, they GOTTA trade Blake Griffin ... so says current NBA player (and former Clippers teammate) Jared Dudley.

Dudley isn't just a sharpshooter for the Phoenix Suns, he's a league expert -- so when we got him leaving Warwick in L.A. we asked what Lob City needs to do to avoid getting punked in the playoffs.

His answer? Trade Blake Griffin ... and Dudley explains why it's the perfect move.

By the way, Dudley played with Griffin in '13-'14 -- meaning he probably won't be invited to the team reunion dinner now ... which would never really happen because they didn't win anything.

Still though, ouch.

Zach Randolph Rocks Trailblazers Hat to the Club

5/11/2017 9:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

It was Way Back Wednesday for Zach Randolph -- who rocked a Portland Trail Blazers hat to the club last night ... despite the fact he's still technically on the Memphis Grizzlies. 

Randolph becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season -- and there's a buzz he could head to Miami or Denver ... or maybe even strike a new deal with the Grizzlies. 

So, is the Trail Blazers hat he rocked to Warwick in Hollywood on Wednesday a clue ... or a throwback? 

Remember, he played with Portland from 2001 to 2007 and became a superstar there while playing with guys like Rasheed Wallace, Bonzi Wells and Damon Stoudamire ('memba the Jail Blazers?). 

Or maybe he just liked the hat with his outfit.

We'll see ...

Vladimir Putin No Penalty Box Necessary ... Comey's Firing was Legit!!

5/10/2017 10:29 AM PDT

Russian President Vladimir Putin has 2 priorities -- letting the world know he had nothing to do with James Comey getting fired, and also ... playing hockey.

Putin delayed one of those to talk about the other with CBS News, saying there's no reason to think Comey's firing will disrupt U.S.-Russia relations. He got all constitutional, saying President Trump's action was "in accordance with his law."

And then he said ... it's hockey time!!

Putin does love stuffing a stat sheet when he hits the ice, but his invitation to CBS seemed odd.

Scott Disick's New Girl Damsel in Distress Scott's Driver to the Rescue

5/10/2017 6:56 AM PDT

Scott Disick's new lady friend had a really hard time finding her ride Tuesday night -- but luckily Scott's private driver happened to be Johnny on the Spot and whisked her away ... maybe to Scott's.

Scott's rumored boo -- British model Ella Ross -- simply could not find her Uber after leaving Avenue in L.A. -- going left, right and around to find some kind of help getting home.

Then, out of nowhere, Lee Weaver appeared and offered Ella a ticket out of the paparazzi chaos ... for a price, of course. Turns out the dude is Scott's personal driver ... and he says something that may be a clue as to Ella's final destination.

The whole thing seems too perfect to be a coincidence.

Eazy and Lana started the turn-up Sunday ... leaving Warwick together. Monday night they were at Beauty and Essex. Not to mention ... they were kicking it at Coachella too.

Kehlani 'I Feel Crazy' Cancels Show, Breaks Down

5/9/2017 6:48 AM PDT

9:15 AM PT -- Kehlani posted a video on IG further clearing up her emotional speech to fans, saying she's fine mentally ... and that she's just physically sick and exhausted. She says she only needs rest ... nothing more.

7:25 AM PT -- Kehlani just addressed her breakdown last night. She says she's still very much sick, but promises the Grand Rapids show will be rescheduled.

Kehlani broke down onstage Monday night and canceled her show -- telling fans she felt "crazy" ... this after being placed on a 5150 hold last year.

The R&B singer was set to perform in Grand Rapids, MI -- an early stop on her summer tour -- but she came out dressed down, and told fans she couldn't do the show because she had to go to a hospital.

Kehlani was in tears with her voice trembling as she promised fans she'd refund them out of her own pocket or reschedule.

We broke the story ... Kehlani was placed on a psychiatric hold last year after authorities deemed she was a threat to herself. Kehlani said at the time she had tried killing herself over rumors she'd cheated on Kyrie Irving.

We've reached out to Kehlani's camp for an update on her condition ... so far, no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Kellyanne Conway is amused ... she hasn't pulled a Richard Simmons vanishing act -- not even close.

We got the Counselor to the Prez Monday at Reagan National Airport and she made it clear ... 'SNL' got it all wrong, because she's been around the whole time. She's been on the road trying to find solutions to opioid abuse.

She gives a shout-out to her favorite cable network and scurries off into the sunset. 

Phaedra Parks Fired From 'RHOA' For Spreading Rape Rumors

EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra Parks won't be showing her face anymore on 'RHOA' -- she's been fired for spreading lies and rumors about cast members conspiring to rape ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the production tell us Phaedra was let go due to a rumor she told Porsha Williams about Kandi Burruss during the course of this latest season, which came to dramatic end Sunday night.

We're told that during filming for the show, Phaedra had told Porsha that Kandi and her hubby, Todd Tucker, were planning to drug Porsha and take her back to their home to take advantage of her sexually. Kandi threatened Bravo if they aired that clip ... so they didn't. 

But during Sunday's finale of a 4-part reunion following the 9th season, all those secrets finally spilled in front of America ... with Phaedra being outed as the source of the nasty rumor.

We're told Bravo felt like Phaedra's allegations were so out of line, they simply couldn't continue working with her and informed her in early April.
