Congressman Ted Lieu Kim K's Doing Great With Prison Reform ... Trump Should Do More

9/9/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ted Lieu thinks Kim Kardashian is doing stand-up work with clemency and prison reform, but the congressman says Donald Trump should be swayed by more than just beautiful celebs. 

We got Ted outside the U.S. Capitol Wednesday, and he called on the President to become more active in pardoning prisoners who are getting a raw deal from draconian drug sentences. 

It's great Kim appears to have DT's ear when it comes to freeing prisoners, Ted says, but Trump needs to be more willing to listen to voices outside the celebrity realm.

Ted says he's called for a full review of Trump's pardon authority, and explains why the President should be more balanced in the clemency process.

Ted also shares his thoughts on Kim's future in politics -- they're both from California -- and gives her some additional issues to tackle.

'90 Day Fiancé' Star Gets 2.5 Years for Weed Bust ... But Wife's Sticking with Him

9/8/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jorge Nava -- the "90 Day Fiancé" star who was arrested with nearly 300 pounds of weed in his car -- has received his punishment and he's pissed ... but he says there's a silver lining.

Nava tells TMZ ... his lawyer was able to get his class 2 felony charge and the possibility of 24 years behind bars reduced to a class 4 felony, but his plea deal still doesn't keep him out of prison -- he's been sentenced to 2 and a half years.

Jorge thinks the sentence -- while greatly better than it could have been -- is still way too harsh, considering marijuana is legal in some states and legal for medicinal purposes in Arizona ... where he was busted.

Nava fails to mention he was busted for allegedly trying to sell 293 pounds of weed, but nonetheless ... he thinks he got hosed.

His lawyer, Brad Rideout, tells us the judge handed down the max sentence under the plea agreement due to the large amount of marijuana and Jorge's prior record. We're told after her serves his time, he'll get up to 5 months parole.

What's most interesting, though ... Nava tells us he and his wife, Russian beauty Anfisa Arkhipchenko, are doing great. He says she's been very supportive of him throughout his case, and he doesn't foresee a breakup.

Pretty incredible considering their contentious relationship on the TLC show, where she told him if something happened and he couldn't make money to buy her expensive things ... she'd leave his ass.

Good luck, Jorge!

'Big Brother' Eviction Speech Scottie Gets Smutty ... CBS Censors Crass Oral Sex Crack

9/7/2018 9:51 AM PDT

A houseguest on "Big Brother" used his eviction speech to tell everyone to "suck it" ... then strongly suggested there's already some sucking going on.

Scottie got evicted from the 'BB' house Thursday night, but not before he made multiple comments that warranted CBS censorship ... including a vulgar joke about the "showmance" between Tyler and Angela.

The audio didn't air live, but 'BB' sleuths were easily able to find out what Scottie said and add captioning ... which reveals his comments insinuating Tyler is receiving oral sex from Angela.

Scottie tells Tyler, "You've been getting Hilton Head" ... clearly a sexual pun reference to the town in South Carolina where both Tyler and Angela hail from.

Scottie was already evicted before this season, but won his way back only to be booted again. And, according to 'BB' insiders ... Angela's very upset by his parting shot at her, which many fans agree is incredibly disrespectful and even misogynistic.

Controversies have been par for the course this season on the hit reality show, with multiple houseguests making racist comments and even cries of sexual misconduct.

And there are still a few weeks left.

Ex-Judge on Kim Kardashian West Way More Than a Face ... She's Really Influencing Justice

9/6/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian West seems to have a powerful pull over President Trump's administration, and she's using it for good ... according to an ex-judge very connected to her cause.

We spoke to former Tennessee judge Kevin Sharp Wednesday in D.C. after his White House meeting with Kim, Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump and, eventually, the President -- and he says the haters are way off base if they think Kim's only there as window dressing.

Sharp says they had further discussions about criminal justice reform, and not only was Kim was smart and very involved ... she's the right person to seal the deal. 

Judge Sharp says Kim's success with Alice Johnson proves she's incredibly effective in a process that would normally take months, because of the public attention she can bring.

By the way, Kim's latest mission -- to get clemency for Chris Young -- is a special one for Sharp. He's the judge who resigned after Tennessee laws forced him to give Young a life sentence for drug possession. 

It's clear, he's now happy to be championing reform, and even happier to have Kim on his team.

Dr. Paul Nassif Nike 'Botched' Kaepernick Deal

9/5/2018 7:09 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Serious moment from "Botched" star Dr. Paul Nassif ... who believes Colin Kaepernick should STAND for the national anthem before he's rewarded with endorsements from Nike. 

The Bev Hills plastic surgeon -- who's appeared on everything from "Dr. 90210" to 'Real Housewives' -- explained that he seems to be on the same page as President Trump when it comes to the anthem. 

"When the Pledge of Allegiance, the songs of this country, anything is played -- we should be standing up. Hand over our hearts. Saluting, if you're in the military ... That's the way I feel about it."

"And, that's what I think everybody should do including all the NFL players."

Nassif added, "So, do I think that Nike should be doing something with him? No, I don't."

Nassif isn't the only star who feels this way -- country star John Rich, UFC fighter Tim Kennedy and even police organizations have called for a boycott over the Kaepernick ad campaign. 

Kourtney Kardashian's Ex Sisters Think He Set Up Pap Shot ... Grasping Onto 15 Minutes

9/5/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Younes Bendjima double-crossed Kourtney Kardashian by tipping off the paparazzi that she was having a secret meeting with him in a Malibu parking lot ... sources close tell TMZ.

We're told Kim and Khloe have solid reasons to believe the secret rendezvous photo -- obtained by TMZ -- was staged by Younes to squeeze out the last drops of his 15 minutes. 

We broke the story ... Kourtney was in the passenger seat of her Range Rover outside of a Malibu sushi joint Monday night, sparking rumors they were back together. Sources close to the exes quickly let us know that wasn't the case -- their chat was all about closure.

We're told Younes made the call to drive to that sushi spot -- a place the 2 had never been -- to park and have a talk. So, it seems awfully suspicious to the sisters that a photog was on scene.

Our sources say the Kardashians believe Younes frequently tipped off paps while he dated Kourt ... because they would show up at random places where the 2 were hanging out, and there's no way they would have known in advance.

We're told the sisters think Younes knew his relationship with Kourtney was over ... and this was his Hail Mary for the last bit of publicity.

Our sources also say ... the girls are more than happy Kourtney has moved on.

9/5/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham's getting ready to fight Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander, but first she's gonna hit you ... with a damn-near naked training session!

The ex-'Teen Mom' star is partnering with porn camming site CamSoda to webcast her Wednesday night training for the celebrity boxing match. The hook, as ya probably guessed, ain't watching Farrah work a speed bag ... it's watching her do it in skimpy workout gear. 

Sources at CamSoda tell us Farrah will slip into 4 outfits during the workout, and whoever tips her the most during the camshow ... will win one of the sweat-drenched items. For example, we're told she'll be wearing this little number, as well as a see-through version.

As we reported, Farrah agreed to fight Hoopz for a celebrity boxing match going down on November 10 in Atlantic City. Drita D'Avanzo wanted to fight Farrah, but Farrah turned her down.

And, in case you're wondering what this "training" might look like, check out a video Farrah posted last month showing her doing exactly that. Now, imagine less clothes.

Bow Wow GF's Call Triggered Violent Outburst On 'Growing Up Hip Hop'

9/5/2018 12:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bow Wow flew into a destructive rage while shooting his TV show because his girlfriend called to tell him about a dispute she had with the production crew ... TMZ has learned.

Production sources tell us the rapper's GF was venting about the disagreement she had with a crew member on the set of "Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta." What's more ... we're told Bow Wow was told he was being set up by crew members to start fights with people on set.

We're told the rapper had been pretty chill last Thursday, but went absolutely ballistic after the phone call. As we first reported, BW shattered tons of equipment to the tune of nearly $300k, and attacked anyone who tried to stop him.

Our sources say he's been yanked from shooting until further notice. We're told the production company wants to dock Bow Wow's check to cover the damage, but he's threatening to walk if they force him to pay.

Kourtney Kardashian So, About That Breakup ... Hanging with Younes Again!!!

9/4/2018 8:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kourtney Kardashian and Younes Bendjima's split is not a done, DONE deal just yet ... based on the fact they're getting closer again in public.

Kourt chopped it up with Younes Monday night outside a Malibu sushi joint. Unclear if they actually dined together, or just hooked up post-meal, but they were sitting in her Range Rover while they chatted.

They had plenty of time to talk reunion, especially because Younes was behind the wheel of Kourt's whip when they drove off together.

As we reported, there were rumors Younes was caught cheating after pics surfaced of him last month in Mexico with Jordan Ozuna.

Our sources connected to Kourt said the breakup was more about distance between them, since they'd always had a long-distance relationship.

Kourtney has NOT looked the least bit heartbroken since then -- but after this weekend rendezvous in the 'Bu ... they're clearly less distant.

EXCLUSIVE

Lala Kent is officially off the market, and her fiance is a guy who's so in love ... he calls himself a bitch. Uh, congrats?

The "Vanderpump Rules" star got engaged this weekend down in Cabo San Lucas with her Hollywood producer boyfriend, Randall Emmett, who put a ring on it Saturday night. They were celebrating twice over though, 'cause Lala was also ringing in her 28th birthday.

In video obtained by TMZ, you see Randall and Lala inside the Mandala Los Cabos nightclub having champagne bottles with sparklers sent around the room. It's a raucous scene, made even more so when Randall gets on the mic to say ... "All you motherf****** know when you fall in love, you turn into a bitch. And that's what I am. I've fallen in love with Lala Kent." 

He wishes her a happy birthday, and then tells everyone inside to basically turn up in honor of their engagement. BTW ... see if you can catch Lala's GIANT ring. It's kinda hard to miss.

As we reported ... Randall finalized his divorce from his wife of 8 years this past December. He'd been seen getting cozy with Lala well before that, though. 

Here's hoping this one works out. Good luck!

8/30/2018 10:22 AM PDT

Charlie Sheen admits there's a good chance he WILL be on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" now that Denise Richards is a cast member, but the conditions gotta be juuust right.

The ex-"Two and a Half Men" star was in Malibu Thursday when he seemed to confirm he'll, at the very least, make an 'RHOBH' cameo -- although, based on his coy response, we'd say he's still negotiating terms.

For now, Charlie would only gives us a preview of how one of his scenes might play out on the show. He's got a few caveats, but still ... sounds like he'd embrace a bit of the reality show world.

Kyle Richards -- who's also on the show -- told us last week Charlie could very well make an appearance. He and Denise share custody of their two daughters ... and they're often hot and cold with each other. 

In other words ... get ready for WINNING TV, baby!

EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Hicks says even though Katharine McPhee's recent tweet about voting seemed to shade him pretty hard ... it's really all in good fun, and for a good cause.

We talked to the "American Idol" season 5 winner Wednesday about McPhee tweeting out "voting matters" -- along with a pic of the moment she lost to Hicks.

Taylor praised Kat's post as a brilliant way to encourage people to register to vote in the 2018 midterms. He says he and Kat remain supportive of each other -- but he still threw some playful shade back her way.

Aside from national elections, Mr. Soul Patrol would love for you to cast a vote for the third season of his food/travel show, "State Plate." It premieres Sept. 24 on INSP.
