Bad: Tracy Morgan says he farted on Kate Upton once.
Worse: He's pretty sure she smelled it.
Awesome: HE DOESN'T GIVE A CRAP WHO KNOWS!!
Morgan broke the ... uh .. news ... while taking part in a Reddit AMA Thursday ... after someone asked, "who is the most famous person you have farted around that you are definitely sure smelled it?"
Morgan immediately replied, "Kate Upton."
We did some digging on when the crop-dusting could've gone down ... and our best guess is when they got together back in January so Tracy could teach her a Super Bowl endzone dance.
Busts Hilarious Dance Moves
Hasta La Vista, Nae Nae
3/27/2014 11:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It's pretty much impossible not to laugh at this -- Arnold Schwarzenegger completely losing his crap while trying to do the Nae Nae on TV ... and then taking it up a notch ... with the Stanky Legg.
Arnold and Joe Manganiello just appeared on BET's "106 & Park" to promote their new movie together -- and hosts Bow Wow and Keshia put the guys' dance moves to the test.
Joe's actually not that bad -- but Arnold ... you have to see this.
James Van Der Beek
Screw Bradley Cooper ...
I SHOULD BE THE NEXT INDIANA JONES!
3/27/2014 10:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
James Van Der Beek thinks it would be sacrilegious if a new actor donned Harrison Ford's iconic fedora in a new Indiana Jones movie ... unless that actor was him.
Our photogs caught up with the "Friends With Better Lives" star in New York City yesterday ... where we asked him about the huge rumor that Bradley Cooper might be the next Indy.
Van Der Beek was dead set against the idea of anyone new taking the role, but when we asked if he would want to do it ... he hilariously deadpanned, "Absolutely. F*** Harrison Ford."
Dawson Leery and the Temple of Pacey?
PISSED at Ray J/Joan Rivers Sex Tape
Bails on Joan's Show
3/25/2014 10:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian is steaming mad at Joan Rivers for spoofing her sister's sex tape by doing a pretty hilarious rendition with Ray J ... so she bailed on co-hosting Joan's show at the last minute.
Khloe was scheduled to shoot Wednesday for Joan's E! show "Fashion Police," but sources close to production tell us ... Khloe pulled out .... hmmm, just like Ray J.
It's thrown Joan's show into panic mode -- probably to the satisfaction of Khloe -- because they have to scramble for a new co-host and re-do the script.
TMZ broke the story ... Joan filmed a comedy sketch with Ray J for her new WE tv show "Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?" -- spoofing Ray J and Kim Kardashian's famous sex romp.
It's pretty hilarious ... but the Kardashians aren't laughing.
James Franco & Seth Rogen
We're More Vogue
Than Kim and Kanye
3/22/2014 7:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
James Franco and Seth Rogen have improved the Vogue cover with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ... although they missed one slight detail.
Rogen tweeted the cover -- we're guessing it's photoshopped -- with Seth playing bitch. We might add, not an unattractive bride.
They almost had us fooled ... but then we looked at in the vicinity of the ring and, well, you don't get that from a Hawaiian vacation.
As you recall ... the duo hilariously spoofed Kimye in November with their music video "Bound 3."
It was bound 2 happen.
'Today' Show Stunt
Al Roker Faux Filthy Rant on Billy Bush
3/21/2014 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The "Today" show has an interesting new strategy for regaining its king-of-the-morning title ... do a phony, f***-laced meltdown with Al Roker ... but the show needs some pointers ... which TMZ will gladly offer.
We just got this video of Al going off on Billy Bush, who was interviewing Johnny Weir during the Sochi Olympics. The clip has a whispery set-up, where Al seems to be schooling Billy who just doesn't know his place on the broadcasting food chain.
And then Al rants ... and it's dirty. And NBC clearly wanted us and everyone else to run it ... which we will gladly do.
Advice to NBC: Lose the crew from the shot. The camera guy can barely focus he's laughing so hard. Also, use a lavalier mic (clip-on), rather than a boom. The boom is in Al's face so there's no way anyone would believe it's authentic. And, get Al an acting lesson or 2. The overacting is felonious.
Nonetheless .... it's an interesting new strategy. We'll see if foul-mouth stunts actually work.
Joan Rivers, Ray J
Sex Tape Gag
That's What She Said!
3/21/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ray J has re-entered the world of porn ... and he's gone from blow jobs to nose jobs.
The man famous for making Kim Kardashian a star hit the sheets with Joan Rivers for a very dirty session. Ok ... nowhere near as dirty as he got with Kim, but in old lady terms, it's raunchy.
As Joan does so well ... they faked sex for her WE tv show, "Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?" (which premieres March 29). You gotta watch ... it's pretty funny.
Even though it's all for gags ... Vivid Entertainment honcho Steven Hirsch tells TMZ he did meet with Joan to discuss the possibility of making her his first GILF star. He tells us, "I'd pay her $100,000 right now!"
The question is ...

Slummin' It for Wife's Birthday
3/18/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Billy Crystal didn't need to shower his wife with fancy jewels on her birthday this weekend -- he took her on a scavenger hunt in Santa Monica instead ... along with Bette Midler and Rob Reiner ... and the video is hilarious.
It's called the Fantastic Santa Monica Race -- basically a fun scavenger hunt tour of the city -- and we're told Billy and co. did the whole shebang Sunday ... the trivia, other weird games, the cheerleading, an interactive mystery novel ... and the beer celebration at the end.
The best part -- at $89 a head, the Fantastic Race is a hell of a lot cheaper than renting out an expensive restaurant or lounging on some boring yacht ... and Billy had a blast.
Whattya know. Money really doesn't buy happiness.
EARTHQUAKE ... EAARRTHQUAAAKE
3/17/2014 6:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
We're rockin' and rollin' in L.A. this morning ... 'cause we just had an EEEAAARTHQUAKEE!!!!
Early reports are that SoCal was hit with a 4.7 and the epicenter is near Westwood, home of UCLA.
We definitely felt it here at the TMZ offices (except for a few people in the kitchen) .... don't worry we're fine.
During the shake, Harvey terrifyingly jumped off a live radio interview ... either because he was that concerned about the staff or because he thought he was going to die. We're not really sure.
Story developing ...
Kobe Won't Win Another Title
... As a Player
3/16/2014 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Samuel L. Jackson isn't the kind of guy who beats around the bush -- so when we asked if he thinks Kobe Bryant will ever win another NBA title, the guy was as brutally honest as it gets.
But don't crawl into a ball just yet Laker fans, there is a silver lining ... according to Sam, there's still a way for the Mamba to fetch another ring ... but it won't be due to his performance ON the court.
Check out the clip.
