Kim Kardashian West It's Not Easy Being Me ... Especially at Red Lights

8/18/2018 7:00 AM PDT

Kim Kardashian West made it clear Friday ... driving is a pain in the ass for her, especially when her whip comes to a stop.

Kim was out and about in Miami with pals Larsa Pippen and Jonathan Cheban when she stopped at a red light and crowds started to swarm around her. 

She explains how her security has to jump out and hold people at bay, so the vehicle can move when the light turns green.

BTW ... who knew Mercedes G-Wagons came in lime green?

EXCLUSIVE

French Montana knows knows how to walk a tightrope ... skirting the issue Kanye raised in song ... whether someone married to a Kardashian thinks about banging the other Kardashians.

We got Khloe's ex Friday night at LAX, and asked him if Kanye's verse -- that he has thought about what it would be like to have sex with Kim's sisters -- was disgusting or understandable.

French navigates well and then drops a hit on the most bangable of the brood. In the end, French defaults and gives the safest answer.

EXCLUSIVE

11:00 AM PT -- Thor is on his way to Colton!

Colton Underwood has a new roommate ... and it's an adorable one. 

The 'Bachelorette' star is the proud new owner of a 2-year-old German Shepherd rescue ... the dog was destined for the meat markets of Asia before a non-profit org saved him and brought him to San Diego.

Colton made a donation to Bunny's Buddies, and they set him up with the pup. The ex-NFL stud was united with his new friend Saturday and changed his name from Tor to Thor.

That was a superhero move by Colton. His other dog, Sniper, will be happy too. 

Stormy Daniels Bails on 'Celebrity Big Brother' ... At Last Minute

8/17/2018 7:20 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Stormy Daniels is persona non grata in the UK ... 'cause she's getting torn to pieces after bailing on "Celebrity Big Brother" after allegedly demanding and not getting more dough, but her lawyer's calling BS.

Stormy was supposed to make her reality TV debut with Thursday night's launch, but she was a no-show. There's a report out in the UK saying Stormy wanted an additional $125k on top of the $950k she was reportedly scoring from the show. 'CBB' producers supposedly balked and Stormy walked.

President Trump's alleged mistress was supposed to appear on the UK's biggest midday talk show Friday but also never made it outta the green room. One of the show's panelists said Stormy told her there was a development in her custody battle with her estranged hubby, Glendon Crain.

Stormy's attorney, Michael Avenatti, tells TMZ ... the money dispute's a joke and insists the reason his client bailed is because producers wanted Stormy to stick to a script, but she was not gonna play that game. As for the custody development ... Avenatti says it did play a factor in Stormy pulling out.

TMZ broke the story ... Stormy and Glendon have joint custody of their 7-year-old daughter but he wants her to pay child support.

Bethenny Frankel Boyfriend's Last Words Help Explain Trump Tower Death

8/17/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bethenny Frankel's late boyfriend, Dennis Shields, was able to utter a few words to EMTs and police before he died -- and they paint a clearer picture of how he passed.

Sources say Dennis told the responding EMTs and cops he'd taken some of his prescribed oxycodone as well as Vicodin and a sleeping pill ... all to ease the pain from a back injury.  

Doctors warn that opioids should never be taken with sleeping pills or other sedatives. Opioids slow respiratory function and sleeping pills do the same. The two combined can have a dangerous, synergistic effect that could result in death.

As we reported, Dennis' assistant had administered 2 doses of Narcan before authorities arrived. They administered an additional dose of Narcan, but Dennis could not be saved.

Our law enforcement sources say police also found numerous prescription bottles scattered throughout his apartment ... although no illicit drugs nor drug paraphernalia were uncovered.

Rest In Peace my sweet babies who gave me endless unconditional love. #nowandforever

A post shared by Bethenny Frankel (@bethennyfrankel) on

Bethenny attended Dennis' funeral service earlier this week and dissolved in tears. She paid tribute to both Dennis and her deceased dog, Cookie, on IG. 

An autopsy report and official cause of death have yet to be released.

Kris Jenner I Still Love Kanye Even Though He Wants to Bang All of My Daughters

8/15/2018 4:57 PM PDT

Kris Jenner still loves Kanye West ... even if he does fantasize about getting with her daughters, despite being married to Kim.

We got Kris and her mom leaving Nate'n Al deli in Beverly Hills Wednesday, and asked if she has any thoughts on Kanye's new track ... in which he revealed he wants to "smash" all 4 of his sisters-in-law.

Kris seems to find it all kind of funny, and says she's got nothing but love for Ye ... so, not your typical mother-in-law response.

That's not to say she's down with Kanye's lyrics, though ... because we know she's always got Kim's back.

'Teen Mom' Jenelle Evans Cleared in Child Abuse Criminal Investigation

8/15/2018 3:04 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jenelle Evans has been cleared of criminal wrongdoing in a child abuse investigation ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Jenelle's baby daddy, Nathan, triggered the investigation by telling cops their son, Kaiser, would repeatedly come to his house with bruises. Nathan thought the bruises were at the hands of Jenelle's husband, David Eason.

Social workers from the Dept. of Social Services visited Jenelle's home late last month and determined there was no abuse. We don't know how they determined the nature and cause of the bruises.

We've learned the Columbus County Sheriff's Office has just cleared both Jenelle and David of any impropriety.

When Nathan filed the police report, he also tried to wrestle custody away from Jenelle and refused to return Kaiser to her, but that was short-lived ... authorities ordered him to return the child to his mother.

It's not the first time this summer Jenelle has been involved in family controversy. Just last month, Jenelle brandished a handgun in a road rage incident with her other son riding shotgun.

'Brady Bunch' House Lights, Camera, Action!!! HGTV Starts Shooting New Show

8/15/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

There's a bunch of camera activity at the famed 'Brady Bunch' house -- maybe the most its seen in more than 40 years -- as HGTV begins pre-production for a new TV show about the groovy pad. 

The network started shooting Tuesday at the crib in Studio City, CA ... capturing establishing shots of the exterior, and using a drone for aerial pics. 

Although HGTV's production crews probably aren't getting a warm welcome from pissed off neighbors -- it's full steam ahead with chronicling the redesign of the iconic home. We're told filming notices have been distributed around the block.

As we reported ... HGTV beat out Lance Bass in a bidding war for the property.

We've also learned the house hit the market because the owner died and her family wanted to sell to the highest, most qualified bidder. Kelsey McCallister, the granddaughter of the previous owner, will help produce the show and even hopes to be one of the hosts.

Uniformed guards started standing watch this week outside the property.

8/14/2018 10:28 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LB Bonner called 911 before he shot himself, but the operator couldn't help him out because she couldn't hear him ... according to the audio.

The former "My 600-lb Life" star can be heard trying to give his location on the call -- obtained by TMZ -- but hangs up after the dispatcher explains she's having difficulty understanding him. She then tries to call him back ... but it goes straight to voicemail.

L.B.'s mother also called 911, saying he'd been posting threats about hurting himself online and she's afraid he's going to "do something stupid." According to his mom ... L.B. reached out to many people -- including producers of the show -- about his suicidal thoughts, but then nobody could reach him.

We broke the story ... Bonner's death was ruled a suicide by the coroner, from a self-inflicted single gunshot wound to the head.

Bonner appeared in last season's "My 600-lb Life" ... which documented his journey as he dropped more than 300 pounds.

He was 30.

EXCLUSIVE

The White House didn't work out for Omarosa ... but she might be a better fit in a different house. 

D'Andra Simmons, one of the stars of 'Real Housewives of Dallas,' is certain Omarosa could be the next big thing on her series, which returns Wednesday night.

We caught up with Simmons in NYC, and she tells us Omarosa would be "an amazing Housewife" cast member -- mainly because she's proven she's not afraid to mix it up with people ... just ask President Trump. Remember, she told us he's trying to start a race war.

As for any current drama in Dallas -- it sounds like D'Andra's relationship with LeeAnne Locken is strained ... at best.

But, Tony says African-Americans have long memories, and they're not gonna be fooled by her sudden turn.

'Last Chance U' Coach Forced to Turn Down 400 Recruits ... Thanks to Netflix Fame

8/13/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'Last Chance U' coach Jason Brown tells TMZ Sports ... HUNDREDS of players have hit him up wanting to transfer to his school, thanks to the way he was portrayed on the Netflix show. 

FYI, to say Brown is "fiery" is a tremendous understatement -- during the show, he unloaded full-throated nuclear verbal attacks at players, refs and his own coaches ... and many have criticized him for being way too aggressive. 

But Brown says his coaching style hasn't scared anyone away -- in fact, it's attracted so many recruits to Independence Community College in Kansas, he's had to turn away hundreds of players. 

"We've had to turn down about 400 kids in the first weekend alone. I had about 5,000 emails in 24 hours."

But that's not the only perk from being on the show -- Brown says he's gotten A LOT of attention from female fans looking to get to know the coach on a personal level ... though Brown says he's playing hard to get. 

And this is just the beginning, Netflix has announced they're working on a season 4 ... which will also feature ICC and Coach Brown. 

Brown admits he hasn't watched the full series of the show yet, but says he's not gonna make any changes to his approach to coaching. So, be ready for more tough love. And expletives. LOTS of expletives.
