Steve Harvey My Bad Apologizes to Asian Men

1/17/2017 9:12 AM PST

0117-steve-harvey-tmzSteve Harvey caved and apologized after joking that Asian men are not attractive.

The "Family Feud" host mocked Asian men on the 'Steve Harvey' show last week during a segment in which he poked fun at some self-help books ... including one titled "How to Date a White Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men."

The comedian tweeted an apology Tuesday, saying, "I offer my humblest apology for offending anyone, particularly those in the Asian community, last week. It was not my intention and the humor was not meant with any malice or disrespect whatsoever."

It's interesting -- Steve said on Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" ... comics cave when sponsors are on the line.

Donald Trump Jets & Choppers in Limbo

1/17/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0116_trump_airplane_helicopters_getty-flickrDonald Trump has a problem on his hands ... what to do with 2 private jets and 3 helicopters.

Our Trump sources say the fate of Trump's 757, Citation X and 3 choppers are in limbo. He can't sell them because if he does it will look like he's profiting off the presidency. Likewise, he can't charter them out because it will open the door to criticism that he's getting a POTUS premium.

Trump, we're told, will not let the kids use the planes ... they fly commercial and if they choose private it's on their own dime.

And putting the aircrafts in storage poses other problems. They need to be maintained, which is a complicated and expensive process ... requiring pilots and mechanics.

POTUS problems.

Vladimir Putin We Have the World's Best Whores

1/17/2017 7:49 AM PST
Breaking News

0117-trump-putin-tmz-getty-2Vladimir Putin scoffed at the now discredited dossier suggesting Donald Trump engaged in funny business in Russia ... but it didn't stop him from bragging about his country's prostitutes.

Putin held a news conference in the Kremlin, throwing shade at the ex-British intelligence officer's so-called report. Putin said Trump's been surrounded by beauty pageant contestants for years, and ... "I find it hard to believe that he rushed to some hotel to meet girls of loose morals, although ours are undoubtedly the best in the world."

Bottom line? If you're into that sorta thing ... come to Russia!

Dave Chappelle Trump Supporter Makes Him Great ...

1/17/2017 6:34 AM PST

Dave Chappelle almost pulled the plug on his stand-up set in L.A. ... that is, until a Donald Trump supporter got him back in the joking mood.

Dave was performing Monday night at The Savoy in Inglewood, where he threatened to shut down the whole thing if people kept recording him. He's notorious for not liking that.

But as soon as he spots a Trump supporter walking by -- and possibly getting tossed by security -- Dave forgets all about the cameras and lets the jokes fly.

0117-steph-curry-shoes-in-game-getty-02Yes he can. 

Steph Curry paid tribute to his favorite president Monday night ... rockin' a special pair of Obama-themed Curry 3 sneakers to play the Cavs ... complete with #44's signature on the bottom! 

Steph and Barack have been tight for years -- and the Golden State Warriors star felt MLK Day was the perfect occasion to honor the first African-American POTUS. 

The shoes are dope -- red, white and blue in color with the presidential seal and #44 on the tongue ... along with the words, "Back2Back."

It seems to be a reference to the 2 terms B.O. served as Commander-In-Chief. 

Curry also tweeted about the kicks, "Honoring our President Barack Obama today on court! He embodies the inspiration, faith & hope Dr. King stood for! We R Forever Grateful! #44."

FYI, Curry dropped 20 in the Warriors 126-91 domination of LeBron James and the Cavs.

Donald Trump LAPD Fears Unrest, Even Riots During Inauguration Protests

1/17/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0116-inauguration-hollywoodThe LAPD will be massively out in force Friday, bracing for what they believe could be large, unruly crowds protesting the beginning of the Trump presidency.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, LAPD cops will have riot gear at the ready as they try to control the various demonstrations they are expecting.

As for how much police will tolerate ... not a lot. We're told if demonstrators try to block traffic, freeways or vandalize anything ... they'll be arrested.

And, we're told, there will be special focus on social media, which could set the direction of the protests.

There are certain locations that will get special police attention ... the Federal Building in Westwood, Hollywood and Highland and freeways.

Our sources say cops are mindful of the constitutional right of demonstrators to protest ... they just can't cross the line.

EXCLUSIVE

0116-melania-barron-trump-tmz-getty-2Melania Trump will enjoy the White House for a grand total of 2 days before returning to New York City, because she has mom work to do.

We're told she will go back and forth from NYC to D.C. until June, when she and Barron will move full-time into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Barron will start school there in September.

As one source put it, "She takes the mom thing seriously."

0117-trump-dating-site

You looking for love, like Donald Trump, and long walks on the beach? Well, now there's a dating site for you.

TrumpSingles.com is up and running for DT supporters looking for like-minded souls to form a perfect union.

The site has 20,000 members and it's growing fast.  

The dude who started it -- David Goss -- fired up the site last summer and offered to "make dating great again" at a cost of $5 a month. That price has now swelled to $19.95 a month.

We're guessing ... lots of first dates at the ol' firing range.

Donald Trump I Already Took My Oath for Prez ... Did It Before I Even Won!

1/17/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0116-donald-trump-happy-tmzDonald Trump will be repeating himself when he takes his presidential oath this week, because he already did it ... long ago.

Trump slapped his autograph on a faux Presidential Oath of Office doc -- with the full text -- back in November of 2015 during a rally in Worcester, MA. We're told a supporter wrote it up and had him sign.

He was all smiles when he signed it ... seeming pretty confident it would all come to pass.

The gag document is now hitting the auction block with the help of Moments in Time.

Starting bid is $3,500, but the auction house is banking on 6 times that amount.

Inaugural Bishop I'm Getting Hate... But I'm Doing it for Jesus

1/16/2017 4:51 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The pastor taking part in Donald Trump's swearing-in ceremony isn't fazed by the haters, because when it comes down to it, it's an order from the Man above.

Bishop Wayne T. Jackson of Great Faith Ministries International in Detroit tells TMZ ... helping with readings and giving the benediction at Friday's ceremony isn't about Democrats or Republicans.

The Bishop's pretty clear -- he's answering a calling bigger than he can imagine.

It's not the first time the Bishop's heard rumblings -- he got the same treatment when he hosted Trump at the church back in September.

'Dreamgirls' Jennifer Holliday Canceled Trump Inauguration Because of Death Threats

1/16/2017 2:19 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0116_jennifer-holliday_tmz-2Jennifer Holliday pulled the plug on her inauguration performance because people threatened to kill her and her family ... TMZ has learned.

The "Dreamgirls" star agreed to sing at an inaugural event but did an about-face Saturday, saying she bailed because she was taking heat from the LGBT community.

But we've learned when her agent contacted the Inauguration Committee, he said the reason was death threats. We're told the LGBT concerns were not even mentioned.

A rep for Holliday told TMZ Monday ... both the death threats and the LGBT reaction were factors in her decision.

The rep tells us, "It was all of those things. She wasn’t scared to perform. She didn’t want to put her family at risk based on the death threats and she also didn’t want to offend the LGBT community which was especially upset that a past ally would perform on a program with President-Elect Donald Trump."

You may recall ... Trump's people said she was a lock late last week, but then her management team came out and said Trump's people jumped the gun ... that she was merely considering the offer. That doesn't square with the fact that Holliday herself said Friday she was fully on board.

We don't know if the people who made the threats identified themselves or any group with which they were affiliated.

A rep for the singer tells us her primary concern was the safety of her family.

Obamas On the Move

1/16/2017 1:07 PM PST

0116-obamas-moving-van-outside-house-TWITTER-02The president and his family are just like us ... schlepping boxes when you move from one house to another.

The Obamas are packin' up and moving boxes from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. to their new rental digs near Georgetown.

They've got some art (no, not like the portrait of George Washington) and other stuff.

They're headed to Palm Springs Friday, so by the time they get back 2 weeks after the inauguration, everything should be in place.
