Farrah Abraham Shocked Bristol's Doing 'Teen Mom' ... Show's Not Trump-Friendly

7/20/2018 2:14 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham thinks Bristol Palin's in for a huge shock on "Teen Mom OG" because her conservative views will not be welcome around producers.

The 'Teen Mom' alum tells us she's not surprised Bristol wanted to come on board the popular MTV series -- but, she is shocked the show's producers sought her out. Farrah referred to the showrunners as the "Trump Hate Cult."

Farrah tells us she's concerned for the safety of Bristol and her family because of politics, and she's not even convinced it will make for good TV. In fact, she's not impressed at all with Bristol's story or what she'll bring to the table.

She does have a better option than Bristol in mind, though -- someone who already has experience.

Farrah Abraham Hands Off Dead Dog to Taxidermist

7/20/2018 7:57 AM PDT

Farrah Abraham's beloved Pomeranian, Blue, died suddenly Wednesday -- but her pooch will have an afterlife ... stuffed on a shelf.

Farrah and her daughter, Sophia, boxed up Blue's corpse Thursday and handed it to a taxidermist who will freeze dry then stuff the dog into a sitting position.

In a social media send-off Farrah called the pooch her "right hand man through everything" as she navigated the life of a single mom, which explains why she's not ready to let him go. 

In the immortal words of Will Ferrell ... You're her boy, Blue!!!

Bristol Palin I'm the New 'Teen Mom' ... Joins Next Season's Cast

7/19/2018 2:52 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The folks who produce 'Teen Mom' know what sells ... because TMZ has learned Bristol Palin is joining "Teen Mom OG."

Production sources tell us, Sarah Palin's daughter has signed on as a regular on the show. It appears she's helping to fill the void left by another famous cast member -- Farrah Abraham -- who was fired for being way too difficult. She disputes that, and says she got the axe because she was a porn star.

As you know, Bristol -- now 27 -- has 3 kids and was famously engaged to Levi Johnston. She eventually married Dakota Meyer, whom she's in the process of divorcing. She was 17 when her first kid, Tripp, was born.

Bristol will join cast members Amber Portwood, McKenzie McKee, Maci Bookout and Catelynn Lowell.

The season fires up on MTV this Fall. 

'Bachelorette' Becca Kufrin Hair-Raising Fun at Disneyland ... No Dudes Required

7/19/2018 1:31 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'Bachelorette' star Becca Kufrin went from a great hair day to a bad one after a few rides at the Happiest Place on Earth.

Becca and a gal pal got the royal treatment at Disneyland Wednesday cruising around with a park guide, which means they likely didn't have to wait in line. Plus, she's on ABC which is owned by Disney ... so, yeah ... instant FastPass.

Becca showed up with a perfectly blown-out coif, but it was no match for the Radiator Springs Racers and Incredicoaster.

She ousted virgin Colton Underwood on Monday night's episode where she visited the final four contestant's hometowns. Now, only three guys remain ... Garrett, Blake and Jason.

Chad from 'The Bachelorette' Sues Movie Producer ... I Turned You Down and You Shafted Me!!!

7/19/2018 12:08 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chad Johnson -- best known as the villain on JoJo's season of "The Bachelorette" -- was breaking into the movie biz, but he claims he got screwed over by a producer because he wouldn't screw her.

Chad, who's also a "Bachelor in Paradise" alum, claims a producer with Sunset Studios named Christina Cimino reached out to him via Instagram in March, and told him she could help him land movie roles.

According to the docs ... she used her power to lure Chad into several in-person meetings, phone calls and thousands of texts, which he says became "progressively more sexual and provocative."

Chad claims he wanted to keep things professional and made this known to Cimino, and she originally obliged by offering him gigs in 2 movies -- for an $11 million payday.

However, in the suit he says it was just a scheme to "exert control over" him and once he insisted he didn't want to get sexual or romantic with her ... she pulled the movie roles.

There's more -- Chad says during her pursuit of him, Cimino sent racy text messages, including one that read ... "Hey wanna come over later? Clothing is optional, nakedness is preferable." He says she later claimed the text wasn't meant for him.

He says Cimino once texted him claiming they made out, and he grabbed her butt -- but in the suit, Chad says it didn't go down like that at all. He says she was the aggressor and assaulted him.

Johnson's suing Cimino and Sunset Studios for assault, fraud and emotional distress ... and wants his movie money. We reached out to Cimino and the studio ... no word back so far.

'L&HH: ATL' Star Karlie Redd Drops A New Single ... Then Gets Engaged!!

7/19/2018 7:18 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Karlie Redd dropped a new single Wednesday ... but that was quickly forgotten when her BF popped the question.

Karlie was hosting a party for her new single, "Ferrari Karlie," at Atlanta club Buckethead Loft when her now soon-to-be husband got down on bended knee and proposed. The pair has only been dating for few months -- he's her first relationship since she split with Grammy-nominated producer Sean Garrett.

There's not a whole lot of info available about Redd's new man ... but his name is apparently Mo, and he goes by Arkansas Mo on Instagram.

Karlie seemed a little more interested in the box the ring came in at first. It's pretty cool ... it displayed a bunch of pictures on an LED screen when she opened it. Her ring ain't too shabby either.

'Little Women: LA' JC Was on Right Track with N-Word But Poor Delivery on 'BB'

7/19/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Little Women: LA" star Briana Renee is supporting "Big Brother" houseguest JC Mounduix's decision to compare the n-word to an epithet for little people, but says his message got lost in his delivery.

JC caught hell Tuesday night from another houseguest -- who's black -- when he used the n-word in an analogy about the m-word. As he put it, "midget" is like "gay and f***ot or n***er and black."

Briana says JC is dead on, because the m-word was a derogatory term used for little people in the circus back in the day, and remains a sensitive subject ... just like the n-word. 

Briana, who just finished recording a new album, takes JC's point even further -- and makes a case for all people to stop dropping both words.

Ex-'Big Brother' Houseguest I'm Giving JC a Pass on N-Word ... Trump Says Lots of Crap!

7/18/2018 3:02 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A former "Big Brother" houseguest says it's no big deal JC Mounduix dropped the n-word ... because he was just answering a question honestly.

Devin Shepherd, from 'BB16,' tells TMZ ... he doesn't think JC had bad intentions, and was merely defending himself. JC, who's 4'8" ... used the slur while trying to explain -- to a black houseguest -- the difference between the words "midget" and "dwarf."

Fellow houseguest, Bayleigh, who is black -- was pissed and warned JC to never use the word again. However, Devin says JC's outburst is no worse than stuff President Trump says on a daily basis.

Shepherd strongly suggests the country's got bigger fish to fry than a slip of the tongue in the 'BB' house. 

Not a bad point, especially this week.

'AGT' Trapeze Duo Still in Demand After Fire Stunt Fail

7/18/2018 12:35 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The husband-wife duo who suffered a stunt fail on "America's Got Talent" is quickly learning all publicity can be good publicity ... cause biz is booming despite feeling the burn on national television.

We spoke to Mary and Tyce -- the flying duo whose blindfolded trapeze trick came to a screeching halt when Mary slipped and fell -- and they say they're fielding offers for corporate events and parties from reps who reached out and thought their stunt was really great. Up until ... y'know.

ICYMI ... Mary and Tyce pulled off some incredible stunts on a trapeze before something awful went down -- Mary slipped!! Making things scarier ... there were flames shooting from the trapeze's ends and a fire pit below to really amp things up.

Check it out ... the couple -- who btw is heading off to Europe to perform a Cirque du Soleil show -- tells us exactly what led to the slip-up and what they've got in store for the 'AGT' live rounds.

Mary's one tough cookie. She tells us about the one injury she suffered from the fall.

Kim Kardashian West Makes a Million a Minute ... On New Fragrance Line

7/18/2018 11:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian West understands the power of a sequel -- just like a popular movie ... a follow-up to her massively successful fragrance line just made a killing too.

Kim released her newest set of perfumes Tuesday, which consists of 3 fragrances -- Kimoji Cherry, Kimoji Peach and Kimoji Vibes. Without spending a cent on advertising, her new products made a whopping $5 MILLION ... in 5 minutes!

The new KKW bottles go for 45 bucks each, and only social media marketing was used to get the word out for the release. Clearly, it worked wonders.

Kim also sent some candy grams to her celeb friends and her sisters ... with a complimentary fragrance inside.

We're told the amount of bottles available for launch this time around was increased due to the high demand, but just like multi-million dollar launch of her first line ... it's expected to sell out quickly.

As for the 5-minute bonanza ... Kim's been here before. Her cosmetics line hauled in $14 mil at its launch last year, so this could actually be considered just another day in the office ... if you're a Kardashian. 

'Big Brother' JC Drops N-Word and F-Word ... Black Houseguest Pissed!!!

7/18/2018 9:31 AM PDT

"Big Brother" houseguest JC Mounduix hurled a couple of nasty epithets Tuesday night -- in front of a black houseguest -- while trying to explain how NOT to offend people. No joke.

JC, who stands 4'8" tall, was trying to explain the difference between the words "midget" and "dwarf" ... and told Bayleigh Dayton, who's black, it's like "gay and f***ot or ni**er and black."

The lesson did NOT go over well with Bayleigh, who quickly reacted in anger.

This isn't the first time a 'BB' houseguest has gone there. Kaitlyn Herman dropped the n-word earlier this month while singing a Drake lyric, and that was AFTER producers had warned them about offensive language. Oh, and there were the two women who said their tans made 'em "look ghetto."

Good times.

Khloe Kardashian's Trainer Her 'True' Inspiration to Losing 33 LBS? ... Baby, Lemme Tell You!!!

7/18/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian's secret to dropping tons of lbs since giving birth includes resistance bands, BOSU balls, a healthy diet and ... TRUE THOMPSON!!!

We spoke to Khloe's trainer, Don Brooks -- aka Don-A-Matrix -- who tells TMZ ... Khloe's success to sweating away 33 pounds has everything to do with True's mere presence near the end of her workouts when she needs an extra boost. Seriously.

Can't knock the scheme when it's obviously working wonders on Khloe. Sure, Don's innovative workouts coupled with two-a-days have done their magic ... but it's crystal clear Khloe draws tons of inspiration from her cute, 3-month-old daughter.

Check it out ... sounds like Khloe's literally working her butt off to inspire MILFs all over the world. But we gotta ask ... how's Don -- who, btw, sometimes trains Tristan and Khloe together -- gonna use True after she's all grown up? She's growing up FAST.

'Bachelorette' Star Colton I'm Not Faking My Virginity!

7/17/2018 11:59 AM PDT

Recently dumped 'Bachelorette' star Colton Underwood is shooting down Corinne Olympios' claim that he lied about his virginity, because he says he'd never admit it on national television if it weren't true.

Colton was a guest Tuesday on San Diego morning radio talk show 'Kramer & Geena,' where he was blindsided by the accusation. Colton not only stuck to his guns, but fired back, saying Corinne has no idea what she's talking about when it comes to the remaining bachelors since she said they "all suck." Colton says they're actually 4 stand-up guys.

Corinne told us Monday that she believes Colton, an ex-San Diego Charger, lied through his teeth for attention, but it ended up backfiring since he got the boot on Monday night's episode.
