Bill Cosby's comedy act Thursday night is solid proof he's a living, breathing dichotomy ... on the one hand bullying weak reporters into killing stories about his alleged rapes, and on the other making himself sound like an evil man on the prowl.
Cosby performed to a packed house at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. In one bit, he jokes about his relationship with kids, saying "Bill Cosby you are an evil man!"
But in case the audience didn't connect the dots, he went on to joke about his relationship with his wife, saying it's not as "energetic" after 50 years of marriage ... but says there are still "certain things, as a male, you get excited about."
BTW ... Cosby killed it and got a standing ovation.
Having Nothin' But A Good Time ...
Fresh Out of Surgery
11/14/2014 11:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Bret Michaels is back on stage, and somehow lovin' it ... just 2 days after going under the knife to have 2 stents ripped out of his body.
If Bret was in pain, he masked it well while he performed in Jacksonville Thursday night. Pretty amazing ... the guy's been in and out of 6 different hospitals over the last couple weeks to deal with complications from his diabetes.
Normally, stent removal is incredibly debilitating ... it can take several weeks to recover.
But Brett's pure bad ass. He's got 6 more shows over the next 2 weeks.
I Got a New Jewish BF
So I'm Not Anti-Semitic
11/11/2014 6:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Nicki Minaj is incredulous people think she hates Jews -- even though her music video plays like a Nazi anthem -- because she made it with the help of Alex ... her new Jewish guy.
Minaj was defiant Monday as she arrived at LAX, cursing photogs who dared to ask her about all the Nazi-esque imagery in the lyric video for "Only."
Minaj also said on Twitter Tuesday both the producer and the person in charge of the video are Jewish. She said the inspiration for the video came from the Adult Swim show "Metalocalypse" and the movie "Sin City."
Nicki then apologized, saying, "I didn't come up w/the concept, but I'm very sorry & take full responsibility if it has offended anyone. I'd never condone Nazism in my art."
Don't Ask Me About Kim Kardashian
... Flips Out on Photog!
11/9/2014 2:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Brody Jenner just went nuclear on a photog for asking a polite question about his stepsister.
It all went down at Sydney Airport after Brody arrived to a surprising amount of fanfare -- but when the photog asked him what Kim Kardashian thought of Australia ... Brody WENT OFF!
Brody rushed toward the paparazzo, but stopped short of taking him down. The outburst makes it seem like he's got a serious grudge against someone. On the surface, it might appear that he and Kim don't get along, especially cause he didn't go to her wedding -- but did attend the wedding of her ex-BF Reggie Bush.
But the more likely scenario is that Brody feels like he has his own life and is not living in the shadow of anyone else. He's also pissed off at paparazzi who ask questions about other members of his family ... namely Bruce Jenner.
Brand New Bentley?!!
Only in Her Dreams
11/5/2014 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
V. Stiviano finally ditched her dumbass visor -- which is good -- but she's also exchanged her Ferraris and Bentleys for a BRAND NEW ... Hyundai!!
Go ahead, it's OK to LOL.
Stiviano rolled out from her L.A. home on Tuesday in her new whip -- a Hyundai Accent. Looks like a base model ... MSRP around $15K. Sensible vehicle, but nothing at all like the exotic 6-figure sports cars Donald Sterling used to "gift" her.
In the video ... paps try to nail Stiviano down on why she downgraded. But c'mon, NO ONE voluntarily makes this move.
A Karma seems like a better fit for V. -- but they cost $100K.

Over Our Dead Bodies!
11/3/2014 10:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Sugar Bear and Mama June could not be more clear ... they can't stand Uncle Poodle and will fight to the death if he tries to wrestle custody of Honey Boo Boo away from them.
TMZ broke the story ... Poodle is privately vowing to go to court for temporary custody if Mama June does not sever all ties from Mark McDaniel, the guy who did time for molesting her oldest daughter.
Sugar Bear and Mama June were together and in lockstep Monday in the parking lot of a Georgia mall ... as they went to get their hair did.
Threatened Female Pap ...
'I Got a Bitch to Beat Your Ass' [Video]
11/2/2014 11:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Suge Knight menacingly got in the face of a female photographer and repeatedly called her a "bitch" moments before he and Katt Williams allegedly tried to snatch her camera ... and we have video of the run-in.
This is the first video of the Sept. 5 Beverly Hills incident that got Suge and Katt arrested for robbery last week. The clip starts with Suge going after a male paparazzo, but then he starts berating the chick pap from a distance -- accusing her of taking pictures of his son.
Then it gets real scary. All 6'4" of Suge marches over to her, and unleashes the threat ... "I got a bitch to come beat your motherf***in' ass!"
It's interesting -- as we first told you ... Katt Williams denies laying a hand on the photog, but does say a female companion of his intervened because the pap was taking shots of Suge's young son.
Katt Williams never appears in the video.

Sugar Bear was polite but clear ... he's not happy that Mama June allowed a convicted child molester to get his hands on his daughter.
TMZ posted the pic of June on a staircase with Honey Boo Boo and Mark McDaniel -- the man who molested one of her other children. McDaniel has his hands on Honey Boo Boo's back.
Sugar Bear was measured, but made it clear it was not cool. He's also upset the show was cancelled.
Cryin' Over Uber Long Wait
Or Uber Argument
10/27/2014 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Two Choices: 1) Audrina Patridge got in a blow-out fight after a Halloween party Saturday night ... or 2) she dissolved into tears because her contacts were hurting her and her Uber didn't show.
Audrina and BF Corey Bohan had just left Hyde when she hit the ground and started bawling. Audrina tells us there was no fight -- she was just pissed because it was clear they'd have to wait forever for the Uber and her contacts were uber-uncomfortable.
Well ... we're not buyin' what she's selling. Take a look at the video. Then you decide.
Not So Totally Clean Getaway
10/23/2014 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Anne Hathaway has mastered the fine art of avoiding the paparazzi ... especially when she's dripping in sweat after yoga class.
Anne hit up a yoga gym in West Hollywood on Wednesday, and things got interesting when she left. The gym staff teamed up to move her Porsche (but not easily) right next to the exit -- so Anne could make an incognito getaway.
Not much to see of Anne here, but the silver lining -- there's a lot to see of one of her yoga instructors.
Yoga. It does a body really good.
Selena and I Aren't Banging
We're Saving the World
10/23/2014 7:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Orlando Bloom surprisingly spoke out about his relationship with Selena Gomez ... and he says there's LESS than meets the eye.
Orlando flew to LAX Wednesday and talked to photogs about the first leg of his trip ... where he flew to Canada with Selena Gomez. Orlando says it was nothing more than the fact that they were both attending We Day ... a conference to inspire young people the change the world by doing good things.
Apparently banging is not necessarily one of those things.
Spanish Fans Can't Get Enough
... Of His Stunt Double
10/21/2014 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Either Peter Dinklage has the most loyal fans in the world ... or the dumbest -- which is a label they might be stuck with after screaming in joy for a look-a-like.
You'd like to give the overeager fans outside the cast's hotel in Osuna, Spain the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they're simply cheering anyone who has anything to do with "Game of Thrones."
However, it seems clear they can't tell the guy is a fake.
To us, Peter's stunt double looks more like the love child of Dinklage and Dave Grohl ... but judge for yourself.
And to the good people of Spain -- they don't all look alike.
Blowout With Fiancee
We're Exhausted From Breastfeeding!
10/21/2014 11:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
David Arquette thinks he knows what it's like to breastfeed a baby ... and says it explains the nuclear meltdown with his fiancee in the middle of a West Hollywood street.
An angry Arquette was seen stomping away from celeb hotspot Craig's Friday night on foot ... with fiancee Christina McLarty in hot pursuit ... sobbing and begging him to come back.
On the video, Arquette can be heard saying, "I'm done. Just like your last guy." Some people took that to mean he was breaking off his 3-month engagement to McLarty, who gave birth to his son, Charlie, last April.
But David tells TMZ ... it was simply an argument between two exhausted new parents. The couple had a baby boy back in April and Arquette says, "We are both hormonal and haven't slept in 6 months. Christina is still breastfeeding, I feel like I am."
He insists they're still engaged and still in love ... and says he takes full responsibility.
