Donald Trump Drop 'Apprentice' Talk ... I'm Spending 'Zero Time' On It

12/10/2016 8:38 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

1210-donald-trump-tmz-01Donald Trump is trying to shut down all the buzz about him being an executive producer of "Celebrity Apprentice" while he's in the White House.

The Prez elect said, "I have NOTHING to do with The Apprentice except for fact that I conceived it with Mar B & have a big stake in it. Will devote ZERO TIME!" 

Trump's tweet echoed exactly what TMZ reported -- back in September he told Harvey Levin his involvement was purely financial.

Trump also singled out CNN for reporting he'd be working on the reality show, dismissing it as "FAKE NEWS!"

On a more amusing note, during a rally in Baton Rouge ... he questioned the honor Time Magazine gave him this week. Clearly, there's still a little campaign trail Trump left in the future President. 

Donald Trump Stake in 'Apprentice' Continues … But So What?

EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump told Harvey Levin back in September, as one of the creators of "The Apprentice" ... he had a lifetime deal with the show whether he was on it or not.

We were told, then and now, any involvement he might have in the show ceases when he becomes President, other than the title "executive producer" and his paycheck.

Levin asked Trump, while shooting the TV special "OBJECTified: Donald Trump," if he was rooting for Arnold, and Trump made it clear he wants the show to succeed.

Sources connected to the show tell us, Trump had no involvement in the most recent installment with Arnold Schwarzenegger -- and sources connected with Trump tell us he'll have no involvement as long as he is President.

As one source put it, “This is a non story. Presidents don’t cancel preexisting business deals when they get elected. They simply disengage from the decision-making process. Jimmy Carter didn't sell his peanut farm."

Exclusive Details

1209-ronnie-magro-new-girlfriend-with-caption-INSTAGRAM-01"Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and "Jersey Shore" have found a way to unite, not on TV, but in real life.

TMZ has confirmed Khloe Kardashian's BFF, Malika Haqq, has been dating guido Ronnie Magro for a month now.  

He posted a pic Thursday of the two kissing on a hike in L.A. ... no word if a little GTL followed.

The two hit it off while shooting season 2 of "Famously Single." Production wrapped about 3 weeks ago and we're told they've been a thing since early November, so it's possible it'll play out on the show. 

Ronnie's other famous relationship was with his "Jersey Shore" co-star Sammi Sweetheart, but we're told he's telling friends he's into more booty these days.

EXCLUSIVE

1206-stevie-j-joseline-hernandez-TMZ-01Stevie J got his ass beat by a super pregnant Joseline Hernandez -- according to docs he just filed -- and now fears for his life if she doesn't get mental help, stat.

The "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star says Joseline showed up uninvited to his pad Sunday and busted up his face and injured his eyes. It's interesting ... Stevie posted a vid with her that same day, and they seemed all lovey-dovey. Stevie tells us that vid was shot right before the alleged beatdown.

In docs, Stevie says there was another encounter where Joseline threatened him, lunged at him, hurled paperwork and unleashed a profanity-laced tirade.

Stevie J is asking the court to order a psychological evaluation for Joseline, as well as anger management. In the docs he says he's afraid she'll hurt him and their unborn child. He's even preemptively requesting a guardian be appointed for the baby ... who's due any day now.

Sources connected to the case tell TMZ that second encounter happened at a DNA lab where Stevie was getting pricked for the paternity test she requested. We're told 'LHHA' cameras were rolling.

We've reached out to Joseline, so far no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

1129-rob-kardashian-blac-chyna-tmz-01Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are all in when it comes to cashing in on their milestones as a couple ... and they're ready to start talking turkey for a TV wedding special.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... they're on solid ground since Dream's birth, and want to get married next year. We're told there's no date set, but one major factor in that decision will be what's best for TV.

There's nothing contractually obligating them to shoot their wedding, but for the right price ... they'd be all about it. Remember, they scored a sweet deal for their baby birth special which airs in a couple weeks.

Our sources say Rob and Blac already have a few venues in mind, but they're not locking anything down just yet. As for Dream, there's no drama in the co-parenting dept and she's helping them grow closer.

Now an agent just needs to get 'em closer to a TV deal.

'Basketball Wives' New Cast Revealed ... Dwyane Wade & Nick Young Won't Be Happy!

Exclusive Details

1201_keonna-green_Evelyn-Lozada_Aja-Metoyer_tmz_instagramVH1's "Basketball Wives L.A." is cleaning house ... bringing in several new cast members including Evelyn Lozada, plus the infamous baby mamas to Nick Young and Dwyane Wade ... TMZ has learned.

Production sources tell us Keonna Green, who just had her 2nd kid with Nick, and Aja Metoyer ... who has a 3-year-old by Dwyane -- will join Shaunie O'Neal, Tami Roman and Jackie Christie for the next season.

Executive producer Shaunie definitely increased the drama with her new hires. Keonna made headlines when her pregnancy broke up Nick's engagement to Iggy Azalea. As for Aja, she hooked up with Dwyane when he was allegedly "on a break" from Gabrielle Union.

1201-nick-young-iron-man-keonna-green-INSTAGRAM-03Nick and Dwyane probably won't watch, but we suspect their lawyers will.

Evelyn was an original cast member when 'BWLA' started in 2010, but left after the 5th season. She's also guest hosting on "The Real" next week.

Spencer Pratt's haters -- and there are many -- are gonna LOVE this clip.

Heidi Montag's hubby just earned his brown belt at Paragon Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in the Valley ... which means he's now a certified badass. He's one step away from a black belt, after all.

EXCLUSIVE

"Love & Hip Hop: New York" star Drewski got way more of a show than expected at his weekly viewing party -- a couple of female cast members started throwing down. 

Drewski hosted the party at Dolce Lounge in Elizabeth, NJ Monday night and invited his co-star MariahLynn. That was his first mistake. 

We're told MariahLynn tried to break up one fight after someone poured a drink on someone she knows, then she got doused ... and the brawl was on, with MariahLynn right in the middle of fists flying.

Eventually Drewski pulled her away from the mess, and everyone went back to partying ... peacefully.

Cops tell us no arrests were made.

'Bachelor in Paradise' Lace Morris Keeping Matching 'Grace' Tattoo ... And the Ring!

EXCLUSIVE

1129-lace-morris-grant-kemp-tmz-instagram"Bachelor in Paradise" star Lace Morris is back on the market but she's absolutely certain about one thing -- the matching tattoo she got with ex-fiance Grant Kemp ... ain't going away.

Lace tells us even though she and Grant both got their couple name, "Grace," inked on their wrists, she's planning to keep it because it's not just about her ex and the broken engagement.

0809-lace-morris-wrist-tattoo-SPLASH-01Lace says it's a reminder of good times she had with Grant, and memories of shooting 'BiP.' She says she always intended to get a tatt souvenir for her time on the show ... just so happens it ended up being about Grant when they got together.

We're told Grant's not rushing to remove the ink, but he's open to erasing it later. Translation: When a new hot chick wants it gone, he'll lose it.

As for the engagement ring -- reportedly worth almost $100k and bought by production, NOT Grant -- Lace says she's keeping it, unless producers demand it back.

'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' Production Temporarily Shut Down

11/29/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1128-karashians-tmz-getty-2"Keeping Up with the Kardashians" came to a screeching halt on October 3rd, when Kim was held up at gunpoint in Paris, and we've learned the cameras will not roll for the rest of the year ... possibly longer.

Sources connected with the production tell us producers have enough footage for the series commitment, but the plan was to film through the holidays, and that won't happen.

We're told Kanye's hospitalization has temporarily shut down production, but Kim has been in such bad shape since the robbery that there was no real hope of shooting anything through December.

Kim, we're told, has been "rethinking everything" ... our sources would not elaborate.

So the show will go on ... but no XMAS cheer, for sure.
