Andy Cohen The World is Crazy Don't Vilify Muslims

2/22/2017 1:40 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Andy Cohen has a despairing view of our world ... especially after the vandalism at a Jewish cemetery.

Andy was at LAX Wednesday and expressed his disgust at the latest anti-Semitic act, but took solace in the fact a Muslim group stepped up to repair the damage at the gravesites in St. Louis.

Milo Yiannopoulos Takei Deserves Same Outrage I Got For Talking Molestation

2/22/2017 11:04 AM PST

Milo Yiannopoulos says his haters are hypocrites for letting George Takei off the hook when he spoke glowingly about his own teenage sexual encounter with an adult ... similar to what Milo did.

Of course, it cost Milo a lucrative book deal, and he resigned from Breitbart News after the interview surfaced where he made remarks interpreted as defending pedophilia.

Now Milo's wondering why liberals didn't demonize George the same way in 2006 when he went on 'Howard Stern.' He described an experience with an 18-year-old camp counselor as "both wonderful and scary and kind of intimidating, and delightful."

Important to note ... George was describing his own experience, while Milo seemed to condone adults having sex with teens, in general.

Milo said he was sorry, but now seems more angry about the fallout than apologetic.

Jeff Ross Correspondents' Dinner Would be 'HUUUUGE' If I Emceed

2/22/2017 7:41 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jeff Ross is more than game to emcee the White House Correspondents' Dinner without fear and without reservation because he has designs on Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

We got the quintessential roast master at The Comedy Store Tuesday on the Sunset Strip, and he not only wants to fry Trump ... he thinks it's his patriotic duty.

Here's the thing ... it totally makes sense. He's roasted Trump twice in the past so the prez is down with him, and he'll be tough enough to satisfy the angry press corps.  

Ain't no one better.

Alonzo Bodden, Ron White We Wouldn't Touch Correspondents' Dinner With a 10-Foot Pole

2/22/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Alonzo Bodden would NOT emcee the White House Correspondents' Dinner because he thinks it's a comedian's death sentence.

The 3rd season winner of "Last Comic Standing" admits the exposure would be great, but he would lose his African-American and Hispanic audience.

It's interesting ... he thinks the administration just can't take a joke, and that would suck the funny out of the room.

Ron White also says he'd pass on emceeing the dinner, but for a different reason ... he thinks roasting Trump is just sophomoric comedy for 3rd graders. He also has Aretha issues ... as in R-E-S-P-E-C-T for the office of president.

President Trump Must Remember Black People's Sacrifices ... Says Wyclef Jean

2/21/2017 2:52 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

President Trump needs a refresher on the everyday tragedies African-Americans faced for years ... according to Wyclef Jean.

We asked 'Clef about Trump's Tuesday visit to the National Museum of African American History -- with Dr. Ben Carson -- and he told us what he HOPES the prez learned ... including tolerance for opposing viewpoints.

It's interesting ... Wyclef quoted Dave Chappelle's plea to give Trump a chance -- yet it definitely sounds like his patience for POTUS is wearing thin.

Donald Trump's Star Vandal Dodges Jail in Plea Bargain

2/21/2017 2:27 PM PST
Breaking News

0221-james-otis-defaced-star-TMZ-01The Otis elevator heir who took a pickax to Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame cut a deal in his felony vandalism case and he won't spend a day behind bars.

James Otis pled no contest to the vandalism charge and was placed on 3 years probation.

He was also ordered to pay the Hollywood Historic Trust and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce a total of $4,400 ... presumably the cost of repairing the damage and replacing portions of the star.

Otis must also do 20 days of Caltrans work ... possibly picking up trash by the freeway.

He did the deed October 26, 2016, to protest then-candidate Donald Trump.

Milo Yiannopoulos Resigns from Breitbart Over Pedophilia Comments

2/21/2017 12:36 PM PST
Breaking News

0221-milo-yiannopoulos-getty-01Milo Yiannopoulos -- controversial Senior Editor at Breitbart News -- is leaving the company over recently unearthed comments he made about pedophilia.

Milo announced his resignation Tuesday, saying ... "I would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleagues' important reporting, so today I am resigning from Breitbart ... This decision is mine alone."

He also thanked Breitbart for standing by him, and contributing to his success. 

His resignation comes on the heels of Larry Wilmore going in on him on Bill Maher's show last week -- you'll recall the "Go f*** yourself" line. Right after that ... the interviews surfaced where he made remarks many interpreted as defending pedophilia.

In one convo with Joe Rogan, Milo seemed to condone adults having sex with teenagers. He's since apologized and denied condoning child abuse in any way.

update_graphic_red_bar8:20 AM PT -- The El Rey Theatre says it will replace the damaged webcam cover shortly. A rep told us they have plenty of replacements. We're also told they don't plan to report the vandalism to police.update_grey_gray_barSomeone's protesting Shia LaBeouf's protest by spray painting the camera trained on his "He will not divide us" demonstration.

A vandal approached the live stream camera -- set up by LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner -- early Tuesday morning at around 4:20 and unloaded a canister of red spray paint. The vandal is wearing a mask or bandana to hide his identity. 

The hijinks went down in Albuquerque, days after Shia made it the new home of the protest after getting kicked out of his New York venue.

Fear not ... someone's scraping off the paint right now.

2/21/2017 7:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

President Trump threw Swedish model Ella Rose's family into a state of confusion, and left her dumbfounded about how POTUS gets his info.

Julian Edelman's baby mama was out at The Grove Monday in L.A. and we asked her to weigh in on Trump's Swedish terrorism comment during his weekend rally. It's sparked plenty of memes and mocking here -- but Ella told us how it's playing back home.

Trump clarified his comment the next day ... referring to a contributor's report on FOX News about immigrants and Sweden. But Ella's pops is still saying WTF? In Swedish, of course.

Donald Trump Meeting Set with Kasich The Question, Who Blinked?

2/21/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0220-donald-trump-john-kasich-tmzDonald Trump will sit down with John Kasich in the Oval Office Friday, but there's a dispute over who requested the meeting.

Kasich has been MIA in Trump's life since the Republican National Convention in July and refused to support him. Kasich's people say he ended up writing in John McCain for president.

Our Trump sources say it was Kasich who requested Friday's meeting, but our Kasich sources dispute that and say Trump wanted the sit-down.

Our Kasich sources also say the governor is in the dark on the purpose of the meeting ... Trump isn't saying. Trump's people say, "There's no agenda. It's just to catch up."

President Trump Southern White House Sends Flight Schools into Panic

2/20/2017 3:42 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0220-trump-mar-a-lago-no-fly-zone-air-traffic-school-fun-art-GETTY-01Flight schools in the Palm Beach area are taking a big hit because of President Trump's Southern White House ... and at least one school is concerned about terrorism.

Multiple flight school staffers tell TMZ ... the FAA's airspace lockdown is killing business. Whenever Trump's at Mar-a-Lago, flight schools operating within a 10-mile radius of it are shut down.

One school owner tells us he loses around $7,000 a day when Trump is in town, and he's down $56k since the inauguration. Another flight school owner says the buzz in town is that Trump will be there for most weekends through May, so they're bracing for the worst.

Another school owner has an even deeper concern. He won't take his students anywhere in the vicinity of Mar-a-Lago, even though he's allowed to do it when Trump's not in town. He says he doesn't unwittingly want to help someone who is out to harm the President. You'll recall some of the 9/11 terrorists attended flight schools.

Shia LaBeouf Trump Protest Cam Back Up & Running New Mexico Cops Check In

2/20/2017 10:01 AM PST
Exclusive Details

0220-shia-labeouf-new-divide-us-camera-FACEBOOK-01Shia LaBeouf's back in the Donald Trump protest biz after turning on his webcam in Albuquerque ... where cops are NOT anticipating the kinda violence the display sparked in NYC.

APD tells us officers checked in with Shia on Sunday to let him know they would protect his First Amendment rights, but they wouldn't assign any special patrols for the display ... as NYPD did last month.

Shia and his partners, artists Nastja Rönkkö and Luke Turner, reopened their "He will not divide us" protest Saturday -- the cam is now perched on The Historic El Rey Theater. It's near a downtown police station, so cops say they'd be able to react quickly IF anything happens.

So far, doesn't seem like this will be the lightning rod it was when it shut down 10 days ago -- people are much more laid back, even while protesting, in New Mexico.

Scott Baio Alleged Attacker Skates Trump Factor?

2/20/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0216-scott-baio-nancy-mack-TMZ-GETTY-01Scott Baio's not getting the justice he wanted -- the wife of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer will not be charged for physically attacking him ... and Donald Trump may have played a factor in the decision.

The Ventura County D.A.'s office rejected the case against Chad Smith's wife, Nancy Mack ... they say because the assault just wasn't that bad.

TMZ broke the story ... Scott was at a school event for his daughter when Nancy confronted him over his vigorous support for Trump. Scott says she beat on him and then started berating him, screaming, "Grab 'em by the pussy!!!"  

Now, here's what's interesting. Prosecutors are not supposed to file cases when there's no reasonable chance of winning a conviction. With today's political climate and a Southern California jury pool that, at best, is deeply divided -- 42% of Ventura County residents are Hispanic -- getting 12 people to agree she was out of line might just be a pipe dream.
