Sam Smith Horsing Around with Friends

1/6/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0105-sam-smith-tmz-01Sam Smith partied in London at a landmark gay club that might have the most uniquely awesome promotional night ever ... called -- wait for it -- Horse Meat Disco! 

Yeah, Sam showed up for Eagle London's regular Sunday night event with a few older gents. Smith stayed for a while, drinking pints, dancing and horsing around, naturally.

HMD Sundays are not to be confused with Hot n' Hairy Mondays or Get Laid Wednesdays -- all of which prove London promoters are creative as hell.

No actual horses were harmed at the club. We think. 


'RHOA' Producers Amiyah Scott Didn't Quit ... We Didn't Want Her!

1/3/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1230-amiyah-scott-instagram-facebookAmiyah Scott might be telling people she walked off the set of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," but producers are singing a different tune ... she was just boring as crap so they scrapped her.

Scott -- who would have been the first transgender female cast member -- got a trial run and claims she walked off the set because they were trying to sexually exploit her.

But our production sources say Amiyah never walked off ... she just didn't make the cut because she brought nothing interesting to the table ... being transgender doesn't make you automatically interesting.

As for claims she was forced to wear lingerie ... producers say that's ridiculous. Porsha Williams  -- who has a lingerie line -- thought Amiyah was beautiful and made the offer and Amiyah declined ... simple as that.

It all worked out in the end for Amiyah ... Lee Daniels has just cast her on a new TV show


Amiyah Scott 'RHOA' Treats Transgender People as a Joke ... I Quit!!!

12/29/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1228_Amiyah-Scott_instagramAmiyah Scott was a wet dream for producers of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," the prospect of a transgender cast member made them salivate, and she's so disgusted she just quit.

Amiyah was on the show for a trial -- the first transgender woman ever on the 'Housewives' franchise. We're told producers were prodding Amiyah to sexualize herself ... wearing lingerie and acting like a vixen.

We're told she bristled at the notes because she wanted to become a role model for other transgendered people. And we're told she was doubly insulted because they tried making her the bitch of the cast, trashing the other housewives.

After a month of filming, she walked off the set, saying she was done.

It worked out for Amiyah ... Lee Daniels has just cast her on a new TV show


Caitlyn Jenner That's Not My Boyfriend ... That's My Kid!!

12/24/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Caitlyn Jenner and son Burt got mistaken for boyfriend and girlfriend ... hilarious for sure, but it soon turned ugly.

Caitlyn and 37-year-old Burt Jenner went to lunch Monday in West L.A. when photogs jumped to the conclusion they were hooking up and peppered them with questions. 

Check out the video. You see Caitlyn leave and Burt blocked one of the photogs so he couldn't follow her. When the photog gets out of his car -- presumably to confront Burt -- Caitlyn's son goes on the attack.

We did not include the last part of the video, where the photog starts making vile comments, hurling homophobic slurs and denigrating Caitlyn. It's really awful.  

Gilbert Arenas Most WNBA Players Are Ugly Lesbians

12/16/2015 7:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1216-gilbert-arenas-tmz-01Gilbert Arenas says he can save the WNBA -- get rid of all the ugly chicks who look like they belong in "Orange is the New Black" ... and swap 'em out for hot chicks in thongs. 

Sexist? Very ... but Gilbert doesn't seem to care -- essentially saying the WNBA's biggest problem is that it's overrun with unattractive women. 

The ex-NBA superstar posted a video of 2 hot models hoopin' around in thongs and wrote, "NOW this is what america was hoping for when they announced the #WNBA back in 1996... not a bunch of chicks running around looking like,cast members from #orangeisthenewblack."

1216-sub-gilbert-arenas-lrm-03But wait, there's more ... 

Arenas added, "Dont get me wrong, they have few #cutiepies but theres a whole alotta #beanpies running around."

"If Skylar Diggins came out like this, I dont care if she missed every layup ... imma buy season tickets and I dont even know where the f*ck #tulsa is."

And to his critics, Arenas says ... "If u think this is sexist,9 times out of 10 u the ugly one and we didnt pay to come see u play anyway."

Jalen Rose Not Enough Outrage Over Gay Slurs

12/16/2015 6:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

People aren't pissed off enough about Rajon Rondo's gay slur -- which is why he only got a 1 game suspension ... so says Jalen Rose

Check out the clip ... the ex-NBA superstar essentially says society isn't sophisticated enough yet to understand the full negative impact of a homphobic slur like the F-word -- though we're moving in the right direction. 

"That same statement now is [a 1 game suspension] ... but as we get more sophisticated as a country ... that comment will be worth more games."

As for NBA sensitivity training -- Rose says the players should KNOW by now not to hurl slurs at people.

"You're a professional athlete ... figure out what to say and what not to say."

Jason Collins 'No Defense' For Rondo's Homophobic Slur

12/15/2015 10:41 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"I think there's no defense for using that kind of language" -- Jason Collins on Rajon Rondo

Collins -- the 1st openly gay player in NBA history -- was at LAX Tuesday when we asked for his thoughts on Rondo hurling a homophobic slur at an NBA ref earlier this month ... a ref who later came out as gay.

Collins is clearly upset with the Sacramento Kings star -- who has since apologized -- but says he has a plan when it comes to preventing this kind of crap in the future. 

Rajon Rondo Apologizes for Gay Slurs ... I'm No Homophobe

Breaking News

1214-rajon-rondo-GETTY-01Sacramento Kings star Rajon Rondo swears he's no homophobe -- despite the fact he hurled gay slurs at a gay NBA ref -- saying the whole thing was out of frustration... not out of gay hatred.

Rondo was suspended earlier this week after he cussed out NBA referee Bill Kennedy on Dec. 3rd -- calling him a "motherf**king f**got" while storming off the court. 

Kennedy has since come out as a gay man -- leading to a closer inspection into Rondo's verbal attack. 

But Rondo insists he's not anti-gay -- saying, "My actions during the game were out of frustration and emotion, period!"

"They absolutely do not reflect my feelings toward the LGBT community. I did not mean to offend or disrespect anyone."

Kings owner Vivek Ranadivé has also weighed in -- saying, "Rajon's comment is not reflective of the culture of the Sacramento Kings organization or the world we want to live in."

"He's apologized, and has been suspended by the NBA. On behalf of the team, I apologize to Bill Kennedy for any harm this may have caused."

Ex 'Love & Hip Hop: ATL' Stars Our Love Is Too Real For Reality TV

12/7/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Former "Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta" stars Margeaux and Merike think they got the boot because producers have a thing against gays.  

The girlfriends were doing date night at Nobu in WeHo and they groused that producers were sketchy as to why they were given their walking papers, and whether there's a sinister move afoot to keep them from doing another reality show.

When you listen to them it sounds like this is more than a fling ... way more.

Rich Homie Quan Drops Anti-Gay Rant on Fan

12/3/2015 10:11 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rich Homie Quan went OFF on a male fan he says tried to grope him, yelling ... “I don’t f*** with no f*****’ f**s.

Quan was doing a show in Tallahassee on Wednesday night, when he says a guy in the front row reached up and tried to grab his junk -- and that's when RHQ lost it. 

Watch the clip, and listen closely for, "Get your gay ass away from me! I don’t f*** with no f*****’ f**s! Looking’ like Young Thug … get the f*** away from me.”

He ended the rant with, "I don’t like sissies, n***a!” 

In the aftermath, Quan seemed more worried about pissing off Young Thug than any of the homophobic epithets. His DJ insisted the fan really did look like Young Thug.

Young Thug says he'll give RHQ "a pass" for the comment. Not sure the gay community will do the same.


'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta' Stars We Got Fired & Job-Blocked by Execs

12/3/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1202-margeaux-simms-merike-instagram-01Two "Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta" stars claim they got the axe from the show but producers are refusing to give them walking papers ... so they can't pursue other work.

Margeaux Simms and girlfriend Merike Palmiste made their debut on season 4 of 'LHHA.' Margeaux's married to producer Nikko London on the show, but announced plans to move on with Merike. 

We're told the twist in the relationship was supposed to play out on season 5, for which Margeaux and Merike already had signed contracts.

But a rep for both ladies tells us producers told them, shortly before taping began, they wouldn't be needed. The rep says they weren’t given an explanation. They also didn't get a signed release -- important to have because no other show will hire them without it.

Their lawyers fired off a letter to producers 3 weeks ago demanding the docs. We reached out to VH1, but haven't heard back.

Michael Sam BACK ON WITH VITO ... Hit L.A. Club Together

11/24/2015 7:36 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Smells like a reconciliation for Michael Sam ... 'cause the football player was out in L.A. with his ex-fiance this week ... and TMZ Sports has the video! 

We didn't even realize it at first ... but upon further inspection you can totally see Vito Cammisano leave Craig's restaurant with Sam and get into his waiting SUV on the way to the nearby Nice Guy bar. 

Sam and Vito were hanging with male model Shaun Ross that night ... and later in the evening, Ross and Vito posed for a pic together. 

1124-sub-vito-instagram-01Sam and Vito split back in June -- just 6 months after the two got engaged during a romantic couples trip to Italy

The two came together to shoot an anti-bullying video last month ... and it may have been the beginning of a reconciliation. 

No word how serious they are -- considering they went out with a 3rd wheel -- but it seems like they're headed in the right direction. 

Stay tuned ... 

Caitlyn Jenner GOES THE DISTANCE Hits 'Field of Dreams'

11/20/2015 10:39 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1120-caitlyn-jenner-field-of-dreams-TMZ-SPORTS-01Turns out, Caitlyn Jenner's a big baseball fan -- or a big Kevin Costner fan -- 'cause she hit up the legendary "Field of Dreams" ball park in Iowa the other day ... and TMZ Sports has the pics. 

We've confirmed ... Jenner stopped by the park on Saturday with a bunch of her friends ... before she took the stage on Tuesday for an event at her alma mater Graceland University in Lamoni, IA. 

1120-SUB-caitlyn-jenner-field-of-dreams-TMZ-SPORTS-01Our sources tell us the gang took a self-guided tour of the field -- and though stadium staff allows people to play catch on the infield, Jenner's group didn't do it.

And shocker -- we're told Jenner had a camera guy with her to document the entire thing.

"If you film it ... "
