11/10/2015 7:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tamar Braxton made a miracle recovery -- after rushing to the ER to treat her pneumonia ... she made it to the "Dancing with the Stars" set just in time to perform live.

TMZ broke the story ... Tamar went to the hospital on Monday night, just hours before the show, after fighting off illness for 2 weeks. It was touch and go whether she'd make it back to studio for the show.

Well, she ended up making it -- complete with full dramatic entrance, and heroic performance. Actually, the "Hey Jude" dance was kinda cool. As ballroom dancing goes.

11/10/2015 6:38 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1110-ceasar-emanuel-instagramOne of the tattoo artists on VH1's "Black Ink" had to unhand a customer's ass to surrender to cops ... who busted him right in the middle of a shoot in NYC.

TMZ has learned Ceaser Emanuel was arrested Monday evening on a warrant for failure to pay child support. Witnesses in the Black Ink Tattoo Studio tell us Ceaser was putting a fresh piece on a female client's butt when the cops showed up.

We're told Ceaser's co-star Dutchess followed him down to the police station ... with the show's cams rolling. It's unclear if Ceaser -- who's got a rep for being an a**hole (it's even tatted on him) -- posted bail.

11/9/2015 7:39 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Vivica A. Fox fired the first shot at 50 Cent, and now he's launching missiles back at her -- after Vivica hinted he has issues with "gay stuff."

Vivica, who's guest starring on "Empire," was on "Watch What Happens: Live" ... and Andy Cohen brought up Fiddy's infamous Instagram re-post ... which claimed "Empire's" ratings decline was due to  "gay stuff."

Check out her dramatic pause before blurting out ... "The pot calling the kettle black, is all I'm gonna say."

She tried to backpedal a little, recalling good times when she dated 50 -- but then did even more damage by questioning his magazine cover shot with Soulja Boy.

1109-subasset-xxl50's fired back the way you'd expect, writing on IG ... "Now she thinks I'm gay because I let her lick my Ass. LMAO."

So far Vivica hasn't taken the bait to respond, but she's hinted ... "I've got some stories in my vault too!"

'Operation Repo' Star I Didn't Steal $3,000 ... I Tossed It!!

11/9/2015 6:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Repo is her game, but Sonia Lopez swears she never intended to steal a wallet filled with $3k -- even though she was clearly busted on camera lifting it.

The "Operation Repo" star was out in Hollywood this weekend, and told us her side of what went down in that drone store. TMZ broke the story ... surveillance cams caught Sonia red-handed knocking over, and then picking up a wallet that had been left on a counter.

Check out Sonia's story -- she cops to taking it, but claims she only had the best intentions.

She's pled not guilty for grand theft ... but we suspect the story she tells here, will NOT float in court.

'Operation Repo' Star Arrested For Jacking Wallet ... And It's All on Camera!!

11/8/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Operation Repo" star Sonia Lopez got busted twice taking possession of a guy's wallet and the $3k in it -- first by surveillance cameras, and then by cops.

Sonia strolled into Drones Plus last month, an L.A. tech store, and you can see in the video ... she makes a beeline for a wallet left on the counter. Sonya made a slick move, knocking the wallet to the ground, then tossing it in her purse. She even lingers ... oblivious to the security camera. 

The alleged victim tells TMZ he had more than $3,000 on him because he was about to make a purchase. Once he noticed it was missing, he asked the store owner to check the cameras.

He says the store had Sonia's email address, so he reached out and told her he wouldn't press charges if she returned the wallet. When she didn't respond, he went to cops ... who told Sonia the jig was up.

She eventually surrendered and was booked for felony grand theft. 

Sonia tells us she initially planned to return the wallet for a reward, but panicked when she didn't see the owner around -- so she decided to toss it in a parking garage instead. She claims she never knew what was inside. Sonia's already pled not guilty.

Todd Chrisley Sued Spare Us the Lame Excuses ... Pay Your $45k Tab!

11/8/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1104_todd-chrisley_tmzTodd Chrisley apparently doesn't know best when it comes to paying his attorneys ... at least according to his ex-lawyers who say Todd's been ducking them for a year on a hefty bill. 

Fink & Steinberg law firm says Chrisley and his wife, Julie, hired them in 2014. According to the lawsuit, F&S worked for the Chrisleys on 2 cases ... one related to an insurance matter, and the other a home Julie was going to rent.

F&S say they sent Todd a bill in November 2014 but he's dodged them ever since ... making up excuses about being too busy with his reality show, or being in the hospital with his son. 

The attorneys say Todd and Julie owe more than $45,000 for services rendered. We reached out to Todd, but no word back.

They call him the G.O.A.T. ... they should call him the H.O.R.S.E. ... 'cause according to Jerry Rice, he's hung just like one. 

The Hall of Famer appeared on "Watch What Happens: Live" with Andy Cohen this week when he was asked to spill his guts about the biggest penis he ever saw in an NFL locker room. 

His answer -- "He's sitting here." 

Check out the look Giada De Laurentiis gives him right after he says it ... priceless.

Exclusive Photos

1106_kim_kardashian_marias_italian_kitchen_launchKim Kardashian's less than 2 months from popping, and yet she's looking more like she had a big lunch ... than a woman on the verge of giving birth.

We got these pics of Kim shooting for "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" Thursday evening at Maria's Italian Kitchen in Calabasas. She was hanging with pal Jonathan Cheban, which isn't weird.

What IS weird is her apparently vanishing baby bump!

We know the optical illusion is probably just a combo of slimming black and bad posture ... but, damn.

Bill Goldberg I Don't Respect Donald Trump ... Because He Fired Me

11/5/2015 2:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bill Goldberg says he lost all respect for Donald Trump back in 2010 -- saying he's still pissed about the way he was fired from "The Celebrity Apprentice."

The firing was especially nasty ... but at the time, most people just chalked it up to reality show editing. Turns out, the anger was REAL.

"I respected him a lot before he fired me," Goldberg told TMZ Sports

There's more ... Bill says Trump is basically the same person as WWE honcho Vince McMahon -- "They're both kind of off their rocker."

FYI -- Bill doesn't like Vince either. 

'Vanderpump Rules' Star I Had Sex-Free Hour with Lindsay Lohan In Other Words ... I LIED!

11/4/2015 7:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Vanderpump Rules" star Jax Taylor is suddenly singing a much different tune -- saying he never banged Lindsay Lohan ... despite admitting the exact opposite on TV a couple days ago.

We got Taylor in NYC on Tuesday, and he flatly denied the story that came out during his "Watch What Happens Live!" appearance. His pal Tom Schwartz spilled the beans about Jax and LiLo, and Jax totally went along with it.  

But now he had the nerve to tell our photog, "I don't know where people are getting that."

From you, Jax. From you ...


'Real Housewives of ATL' Ex-NBA Player In Physical Altercation ... Cops Called

11/4/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1103-glen-rice-jr-getty-01There was real life drama during a recent 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' shoot -- with a troubled ex-NBA player allegedly knocking one of the women to the ground ... multiple sources tell TMZ Sports

It all went down at a home in Miami back in September, where ex-Washington Wizards player Glen Rice Jr. was involved in a scene with Tammy McCall Browning

FYI -- Glen is the same guy who was recently arrested in ATL after being shot in a dispute at a restaurant owned by T.I.

Our sources tell us ... producers brought Browning in to test her for a full-time gig on the show ... and she brought Rice Jr. because she thought it would help her chances. But things took a turn for the worse when they began drinking -- with the ladies complaining to producers that Glen was getting aggressive and making the women uncomfortable. 

We're told Tammy went to ask Glen to leave -- and as one source says, "He lost it." Our sources say Glen went to confront one of the housewives -- and Tammy tried to get in the way to stop him -- but he wouldn't stop and knocked her to the ground. Tammy smacked her head pretty hard and began to cry. 

We're told the whole thing was captured on video ... in fact, footage of Tammy reeling in pain was used in the promo for the new season. 

Tammy was eventually taken to the hospital for evaluation -- where doctors determined she was fine, no concussion. But later, Tammy and Glen returned to the home -- where the housewives made it clear Glen wasn't welcome. An argument ensued and cops were called to the scene. 

Things eventually calmed down -- no one was arrested -- and Glen left without further incident. But our sources say Glen was told he was NOT welcome back and Tammy did not get a featured role on the show. 

We reached out to Rice for comment -- so far, no word back.

1103-christopher-brock-instagram-01"Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" star Milan Christopher took his war with his ex-bf to the next level -- going to court to get protection after Miles Brock allegedly attacked him last weekend. 

An L.A. judge signed off on Milan's request for a restraining order on Monday ... meaning Brock has to stay at least 100 yards away from Milan. In the docs, Christopher accuses Brock of punching him in the face, resulting in a "swollen face black eye."

TMZ broke the story ... Brock was arrested Saturday night in NYC, a day after the exes ended up at the same Halloween party where the punch allegedly went down.

We got Milan on his way out of court, and he insists ... there won't be any reconciliation.

Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough So Excited We Could Fart!!

11/3/2015 8:56 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough have rumors brewin' ... 'cause during "Dancing with the Stars" it sounded like one of 'em let a celebration fart rip.

At the end of Monday night's results show, Bindi and Derek found out they were safe. Derek promptly scooped up his 17-year-old partner and you can clearly hear the alleged toot. It's unclear just who done it, but it sounds way too much like a didgeridoo to not at least bring Bindi in for questioning.

But hey, if all else fails ... blame a dingo.
