'Bachelorette' Garrett Apologizes for Liking Hateful Memes ... 'I Am Not Perfect'

5/31/2018 7:00 PM PDT

'Bachelorette' contestant Garrett -- the suitor who got Becca's first impression rose on Monday's season premiere -- is the latest to jump on the apology train this week ... in his case, for liking bigoted memes.

Garrett Yrigoyen spoke up Thursday evening after coming under fire when it was discovered he liked Instagram posts mocking transgender people, Parkland shooting survivors and immigrants ... then deleting his account.

Garrett owned up to it -- via a new Instagram account -- saying ... "I am sorry to those who I offended, and I also take full responsibility for my ‘likes’ on Instagram that were hurtful and offensive."

He also explains why he started a new account, adding ... "I decided to take it down and start fresh because I have learned an extremely valuable lesson and am taking steps to grow, become more educated, and be a better version of myself. I am not perfect, and I will never be anywhere close, but now I will always be more informed and aware of what I am liking and supporting, not just on Instagram, but in life.”

We broke the story ... Garrett APPEARS to be the guy Becca picks in the finale -- based on photos we obtained of them filming it -- but when we saw Becca out this week ... she didn't seem too concerned about his controversy.

Betcha wish you were that bottle of Fireball whiskey right now.

Drake's Alleged Baby Mama Took Shot at Reality TV Fame ... 'Real Mistresses of Atlanta'

5/31/2018 8:37 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Drake knows how to pick 'em -- the mother of his alleged son starred on a reality show ... about professional side chicks.

We dug up an old trailer for a 2012 show called "Real Mistresses of Atlanta," in which Sophie Brussaux -- who used her stage name, Rosee Divine -- is introduced as one of the four leading ladies. She called herself a French model who likes luxury.

In one scene she's seen talking to an anonymous NBA player over the phone, and he tells her to buy a condo she liked. The implication is pretty clear ... he's married, but he's also Sophie's sugar daddy.

A post shared by rosee divine (@frenchrosebud2) on

Producer Mickey 'Memphitz' Wright -- the ex-bf of "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" star K. Michelle -- created and produced the show. He reportedly shopped it around to TV execs, and sources at Oxygen tell us the network was very interested ... but, ultimately no one bought it.

There are no episodes or seasons listed on the Internet.

Sophie's still living well though. TMZ broke the story, Drake's been financially supporting her since the birth of his alleged son, Adonis.

'Bachelorette' Star Becca Kufrin Dodging Questions About Garrett Liking Bigoted Memes

5/30/2018 9:38 AM PDT

'Bachelorette' star Becca Kufrin happily smiled and posed for cameras in NYC, and appeared unfazed by our guy asking how she feels about her leading guy liking hateful memes on social media.

We got Becca leaving an event Tuesday, and a throng of fans and photogs snapped shots of her before she bolted. We tried to ask her about Garrett Yrigoyen -- the suitor who got Becca's first impression rose on Monday's season premiere, but who's also come under fire for allegedly liking Instagram posts mocking transgender people, Parkland shooting survivors and immigrants.

Garrett, who also appears to be the guy Becca picks in the finale, deleted his Instagram account after the posts were published on several blogs.

If Becca's concerned, she's not showing it in public.  

'Little Women: LA' Christy Takes the Cake ... Right in Her Face

EXCLUSIVE

"Little Women: LA" star Christy Gibel is back to getting stuff thrown in her face ... but this time she was treated to dessert instead of water. 

Christy was getting into it with costar Mika Winkler at Birkholm’s Bakery in Solvang, CA for a scene from an upcoming episode, all over an imminent gastric sleeve surgery she was preparing for in an effort to lose weight.

Production sources tell us Mika had been picking on Christy leading up to this blowout, which ended with both of them getting cake smeared all over their faces. Food fight!

Christy's no stranger to on-set run-ins with her castmates -- she was on the receiving end of some H20 and a thrown glass a couple years ago at the hands of Terra Jole. BTW ... Mika is Terra's pal, so it's really no surprise she's going after Christy just as viciously.  

As for the surgery ... here's hoping it goes better than her botched back procedure

Becca's already revealed she's currently engaged to one of this season's contestants ... but it's unknown which one. That's where these photos come in ...

Becca can clearly be seen kissing a man in a suit at the Shangri-La's Resort in the Maldives -- possibly her new fiance -- while filming at the location on May 10. We're told there was a big cheer, hugging and group photos taken after what appeared to be a proposal.

Our sources also say the crew held a party for the couple the next day at the resort.

EXCLUSIVE

'Bachelor' stars Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham have been together long enough they're now answering questions almost exactly the same ... call it creepy cute.

We got Arie and Lauren on Wednesday leaving "The View" in NYC where they posed for pics with fans. Our guy asked the million dollar question -- will they watch Becca Kufrin's upcoming 'Bachelorette' season?

You'll recall Arie became public enemy No. 1 after blindsiding Becca and dumping her for Lauren ... in the cringeworthy 'Bachelor' finale. Watch ... Arie and Lauren were either coached on how to answer, or they're just starting to talk alike.

Btw ... Arie and Lauren are tying the knot Jan. 12 in Hawaii, a full year after meeting on 'Bachelor.' They made the announcement 5 days before Becca's premiere.

Stealing thunder, table for 2?

One thing Robby and Scheana can't deny -- they look good together.

Viral 'Hot Cop' Warns Survivor Cast Members Social Media Will Kill You!!!

5/20/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The "hot cop" who scored a spot on the new season of 'Survivor' is schooling the other contestants on what he's learned from his 15 minutes of fame by warning them to delete "anything that can bite you in the ass over social media."

TMZ has obtained an email Daniel Rengering fired off in a chain with 12 other 'Survivor' contestants where he admits to creeping on their socials and warning them to "fine-tooth comb" anything that could publicly crucify them online.

Daniel warns the "Internet is a cruel, heartless bitch" where "trolls are going to work twice that hard to tear you down, spread nasty gossip and ruin your reputation."

Daniel's seen it happen firsthand after one of the cops in the photo that made him famous was accused of posting several anti-Semitic remarks to his Facebook in 2011, so it appears Daniel's intentions aren't to gloat, but rather to warn the others.

He also adds, "If a small-town country boy like me can host on the GRAMMYs, Oscars and SAG Awards Red Carpets, from a single viral photo, you guys can turn this opportunity into so much more."
