Joe Buck Kaepernick Ain't Ending Protest for a Job

3/7/2017 6:16 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"NFL on FOX" star Joe Buck says Colin Kaepernick's decision to end his national anthem protest is NOT about getting hired by another team ... and he's got the evidence to prove it.

Buck was leaving Mastro's Steakhouse in Bev Hills where he gave Kaep serious props for not just standing up for what he believes in ... but also putting his money where his mouth is. 

And for all the skeptics saying Kaepernick is abandoning his protest in a desperate move to get a new contract with a new team ... Buck explains why that theory doesn't really hold water.

EXCLUSIVE

0306-vanessa-grimaldi-the-bachelor-dress-shopping-INSTAGRAM-01Vanessa Grimaldi trolled the hell out of 'Bachelor' fans by posing with a bunch of wedding dresses ... but we've learned it was all business -- and NOT Nick Viall business.

Vanessa, one of the last 3 women standing this season, posed for a photo at Le Chateau in Montreal with creative coordinator Holly Wiancko -- and more importantly -- racks full of wedding and bridesmaids dresses.

Naturally, many fans thought Vanessa had just spoiled the final rose ceremony ... that she was already prepping to be Mrs. Viall. Well, you can stop searching for their wedding registry.

Sources connected to Le Chateau tell us the shop invited Vanessa -- who's from Montreal -- to check out their new line and to talk about a partnership once 'Bachelor' wraps. We're told she didn't try on anything from the bridal section.

Of course, they'd welcome her back ... IF her relationship status changes soon.

Justin Bieber It's All Downhill From Here ... With Model Gal Pal

EXCLUSIVE

0228-justin-bieber-hike-mystery-girl-launchJustin Bieber is in a race to the bottom ... but at least now he's got some attractive company.

Bieber took a 1-on-1 hike with his model friend, Ashley Moore, who seemed down to get physical with him in a friendly competition running on a canyon trail. 

If there's one thing we know about Bieber ... he tends to open up in the wilderness. Bodes well for Ashley. Plus they've hung out before -- couple years ago at a Clippers game -- so, seems like they've got a connection.

Breaking News

Canelo Alvarez is coming out swinging at the possibility of a Mayweather vs. McGregor fight -- saying the whole concept is disrespectful to the sport he loves.

Canelo -- who famously fought Mayweather back in 2013 -- says talks of a superfight are nothing more than a "joke."

Look, the reality is everyone is talking about the hypothetical match instead of the ACTUAL fights going down (like the upcoming Canelo vs. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. fight) ... and we're guessing that's pissing him off.

EXCLUSIVE

Neil deGrasse Tyson has a message for Kyrie Irving ... KEEP YOUR DUMB FLAT EARTH BS OUTTA SCIENCE ... saying the world would be a better place if Irving sticks to the court.

Irving caused a stir earlier this week when he appeared on a podcast and said -- completely seriously -- that the earth is flat. That's right kids, your favorite point guard is a flat earther.

We talked to Tyson, one of the smartest men on earth, and he told us he has zero problem with Irving's outrageous claim, as long as Kyrie never does anything remotely having to do with scientific thought.

Bonus shade? Tyson gives us a suggestion of what should happen to every single flat earther left on the surface of this round planet ... and it's pretty hilarious.

Well, dad ... don't worry.

"Savannah and Chandler are just close friends," one extremely connected source tells us.

"He thinks both she and her dad are awesome and values his relationship with both of them. However, his focus remains on finishing the NBA season strong and gearing up for a deep run in the playoffs."
