Bristol Palin

Baltimore Riots

Are Messing With My House Sale!

5/1/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bristol Palin HouseBristol Palin's house sale would be a done deal if not for the riots in Baltimore. Wait, what?

So get this ... Palin put her 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath, 3,200 sq ft. Alaskan home on the market last month and it sold in three days at the asking price of $549,000. Needless to say, Bristol was ecstatic. 

Fast forward to this week when the final sale docs were supposed to be delivered ... and they've been delayed. What caused the delay? Yup, the riots.

Bristol's realtor says an alert from FedEx concerning the delivery came, saying, "As a result of local restrictions in the Baltimore, Maryland metro area, unavoidable service delays are anticipated."

Slight delay ... of no consequence. Relatively speaking.

Jeb Bush

Recruiting Pitbull

... Key to the White House

4/30/2015 9:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The 2016 presidential election could come down to one man ... PITBULL ... and Jeb Bush knows it. 

There have been reports that both Democrats and Republicans have been ferociously trying to court the rapper to their party -- strongly believing Mr. 305 could have GREAT political influence in the election.

And why? He's got a huge Latino following ... especially in Florida ... which is one of the most important swing states for presidential elections. 

Which brings us to former Gov. Bush -- who was out in D.C. Thursday morning. We asked a fairly easy question -- if you could bring ANYONE to a baseball game, who would it be?

First he picked Teddy Roosevelt ... but then, he adds another name to the list -- Mr. Worldwide!!

0428_Russell-Wilson-and-Ciara_at_White-House-state-dinnerRussell Wilson is having one hell of an off-season ... he just walked in to the White House State dinner with Ciara on his arm .... and she's looking DAMN FINE!!!!! 

Rumors had been swirling about the Seattle Seahawks QB secretly dating the R&B singer ... but now, it appears to be official -- with Wilson bringing her as his date for dinner with President Obama and the Prime Minister of Japan. 

Before Ciara came into the picture, Wilson -- who divorced his wife last year -- was spotted out with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition model Samantha Hoopes ... but clearly, she's out -- Ciara's in. 

Mazel! 

Gov. Terry McAuliffe

'Redskins Should Be In Virginia'

'Aggressively Working Deal'

Exclusive Video

The governor of Virginia says he's "aggressively" trying to move the Redskins OUT of Washington D.C. and into the 10th state -- telling TMZ Sports it's simply "where they belong." 

Gov. Terry McAuliffe has been gunning for a brand new football stadium in Virginia -- and strongly believes it would be the PERFECT fit for the Redskins. 

And when we saw him out over the weekend, the Gov. made his case for why team owner Dan Snyder should pack up his stuff and call the moving trucks. 

'SNL' Star Cecily Strong

Cracks Racist Cops Joke on Obama ...

As Baltimore Riots Raged

4/26/2015 8:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cecily Strong went in HARD on President Obama and the Secret Service with an envelope-pushing joke about cops killing black men -- and she did it just miles from the Baltimore riots over that very issue.

Cecily hosted the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday night, and got the biggest reaction from the room when she said the Secret Service is "the only law enforcement agency in the country that will get in trouble if a black man gets shot."

The crowd was still gasping when she unleashed another racially charged follow-up.

0426-baltimore-orioles-jumbotron-warning-TWITTER-01Around the same time -- 30 miles outside the Beltway -- the Baltimore riots over Freddie Gray's death in police custody turned so violent police told Orioles fans to stay inside the stadium after the game.

We're guessing Cecily's jokes were written long before Baltimore erupted -- still, it was front page news all day leading up to the WHCD. So, we gotta ask ...  

Prez Obama

Upstaged by 'Angry' Key & Peele Star

4/26/2015 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Barack Obama made, arguably, the best decision of his presidency when he jacked a "Key & Peele" skit for his standout moment at the White House Correspondents Dinner.

If you missed it -- 'cause like most Americans, you don't watch CNN or C-Span on Saturday nights -- the prez brought out 'K&P' star Keegan-Michael Key to play his "anger translator" ... who says what POTUS is really thinking during speeches.

The bit always killed ... like it always does. Check out the pot shots at the media (including the W.H. Correspondents), Ted Cruz, and even Hillary Clinton.

Good move, B.O. ... leave the comedy to comedians. 

Drake

Blasted By Canadian Politician

Paul Pierce Handshake Was B.S.

EXCLUSIVE

0424-norm-kelly-twitter

A Canadian politician is BLASTING Drake ... claiming the rapper offended his fellow countrymen when he shook Paul Pierce's hand this week -- and now he's warning Drizzy, DON'T DO IT AGAIN! 

The man with the beef is Councillor Norm Kelly ... a Toronto legislator and die hard Raptor's fan ... who says he was sickened when he saw Drake dappin' up the Washington Wizards star while they're in the middle of a heated playoff series. 

"For Drake to have any recognition of Pierce, offended a huge number of fans," Kelly tells TMZ Sports

"We have no problem shaking hands. Just wait to do it until after the series."

Kelly -- who happens to be a HUGE Drake fan -- says he's not the only Torontonian who feels this way and has some advice for the 28-year-old hip-hop superstar: 

"If [Drake] really has his ear attuned to the people of Toronto, we won't see a repeat of that behavior again."

Republican Congressman

We Welcome

Bruce Jenner

4/25/2015 12:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz is happy Bruce Jenner will continue to embrace the GOP, telling us his party needs all the Cali support it can get. 

Chaffetz -- an ultra conservative from Utah who has become extremely influential in DC -- told our TMZ photog it's not his job to judge Jenner's choices.

It's interesting ... Chaffetz has become a powerful voice promoting the right of privacy. Although it seems Chaffetz is saying live and let live, he clearly has limits because he has opposed both gay marriage and medical marijuana use in the past.

Jenner told Sawyer he's a long time Republican with no plans of jumping parties. 

New England Patriots

President Cracks

Deflategate, Gronk Jokes

4/23/2015 1:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Barack Obama went in way harder on the New England Patriots than Seahawks coach Pete Carroll did in in the Super Bowl -- unloading a ton of jokes poking fun at the champs.

Obama had his A-game working as he ripped Bill Belichick, Rob Gronkowski and even attempted a Boston accent. Fittingly, the joke that fell most flat ... his Deflategate material. The Pats did not seem amused.

Darrelle Revis was also at the event ... which could've been awkward since he left the team this offseason to sign with the rival NY Jets. 

Pats' Super Bowl hero Malcolm Butler (who was singled out by Obama) told TMZ Sports it was no big deal having him there. "We all went to war together, we all practice and work hard together. He earned it just like we did."

New England Patriots

Arrive to the White House

... No Brady? No Problem!

4/23/2015 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The New England Patriots just arrived to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. ... again ... only this time, they're without the team's biggest star Tom Brady

Gronk, Edelman, Belichick, Bob Kraft and more were all suited up and fired up for their meeting with President Obama ... a meeting they earned by winning the Super Bowl. 

So why no Brady? The QB reportedly had to pass on the White House trip due to a family obligation -- though, it's unclear what that obligation is. 

By the way, Brady has been to the White House for the celebratory meet-and-greet 3 times before ('02, '04 and '05) ... but there was a different POTUS back then, George W. Bush. 

NY Congressman Peter King

DON'T CELEBRATE A-ROD

Home Runs Are Tainted

4/23/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

With Alex Rodriguez just 2 home run from tying Willie Mays as #4 on the all-time MLB home run list ... NY Congressman Peter King says NO ONE should celebrate ... 'cause A-Rod's a dirty cheater. 

In fact, the Yankees are practically ignoring A-Rod's impending accomplishment (odd since the Yanks usually celebrate EVERYTHING) ... but King says it's definitely the right move. 

"I think they're right because it's obvious that so many of [A-Rod's] home runs were tainted," King told TMZ Sports

"I think it would be wrong to be celebrating ... since for all we know, hundreds of those home runs probably occurred when he was taking steroids."

Of course, Rodriguez has admitted to using illegal performance enhancing substances -- and was suspended for the entire 2014 season. 

But even if the Yanks do acknowledge the milestone, Alex still has a huge incentive -- the guy will get a $6 MILLION bonus if he ties or breaks the record. 

Rosie the Riveter

Model for Iconic WW II Image Dies

breaking news

0422-rosie-the-riveter-mary-keefe-GETTY-01The woman who became Norman Rockwell's Rosie the Riveter -- the symbol of American women working on the home front during World War II -- has died at the age of 92.

Mary Doyle Keefe died Tuesday in Connecticut after a brief illness ... according to her daughter.

Keefe met Rockwell when she was 19-years-old and working as a telephone operator. She was paid $10 to pose for Rockwell's iconic painting ... which showed a woman with her sleeves rolled up, rivet gun on her lap, and eating a sandwich during a break.

The image debuted on the Saturday Evening Post in May 1943.

In real life, Keefe wasn't anywhere near as beefy and muscular as Rockwell's Rosie. He later apologized to Keefe for the image, saying he needed to make her "sort of a giant."

The painting was eventually used to sell war bonds -- and Beyonce even struck her own version of Rosie last summer on Instagram.
