'Survivor' Suspect -- New Development with Kids

4/23/2010 2:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
0409-survivorThe former "Survivor" producer -- Bruce Beresford-Redman -- suspected of killing his wife may now lose custody of his kids, because his parents have now made their move to get permanent guardianship ... TMZ has learned.

David and Juanita Beresford-Redman -- who now have temporary guardianship -- filed legal docs in L.A. County Superior Court asking to make them permanent guardians of the two children.  They say Bruce wants it that way.

David and Juanita -- who filed papers without a lawyer -- say they are retired and in good heath, they've had a relationship with Alec and Camilia since birth, and are "able to devote ourselves to the care and nurture of our grandchildren."

David and Juanita say, "We are both well-educated, each with a masters degree ... we will be able to address questions that arise from our grandchildren..."

Those questions will surely include the murder of their mother, Monica, in Mexico.  Bruce was detained but released and ordered to stay in the country pending the outcome of the investigation.

David and Juanita say their son is "assisting the Mexican authorities in matters concerning the murder."

Survivor 'Villain' Arrested for BatteryOne of the stars on "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains" was arrested in Louisiana early this morning after cops say he attacked somebody at a street festival.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Russell Hantz -- the runner-up from "Survivor: Samoa" -- was partying at the Festival International de Louisiane, when he allegedly "shoved" somebody to the pavement.

Cops say Hantz was immediately arrested by Lafayette City Police -- and taken to a nearby jail.

Hantz was eventually released.

But get this, Hantz is still in contention to win "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains" -- which is airing now on CBS ... and yes, he's one of the "villains."

Joy Pierce is holding on tight to Beresford-Redman (left) in this photo taken last summer. Multiple sources close to the Beresford-Redmans, and several published reports, have said that Joy and Bruce had an intimate relationship. 

We're told Bruce and Joy worked together on the boxing reality show "The Contender" in 2005 ... and a game show for ABC called "Crash Course" last year.

The photo was taken when the pair was out to dinner with "Contender" boxer Tarick Salmaci.

TMZ made several attempts to contact Pierce -- by phone and in person -- but she has not gotten back to us.

Bruce is out of police custody but is barred from leaving Mexico pending results of the forensic investigation into Monica's death.

Don't Mess With Boston Rob!

8/21/2007 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Click to play!Reality show staple "Boston" Rob Mariano came to blows with a reality show wannabe at tryouts for the new show he's hosting. "Boston Rob" in a new reality show? Get out!

In a video posted on YouTube over the weekend, Rob -- who has appeared on two editions of both "Survivor" and "Amazing Race" -- can be seen exchanging words with another man who throws water at Rob and then shoves him. After a minute or so of posturing, Rob throws two quick right hands to the guy's head and then has security take the guy away. Wicked tough!

The show -- called "Tontine" -- claims that it will be giving away "the biggest prize in reality television history" -- $10 million. Only one problem: it hasn't been picked up by an actual television network. Minor technicality.

Ashley Massaro: Bye Bye, Wrestling! Hello, Reality!

6/13/2007 6:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Gazongariffic WWE diva Ashley Massaro has reportedly been knocked out of the professional wrestling circuit. It's a great loss to wrestling, and a sad day for all humanity.

WWE superstar Paul London told Prowrestling.com that Ashley "was written out of the WWE storylines because she's leaving to be a contestant on the 'Survivor' reality show." This could explain this week's "suspension" of Massaro on "SmackDown!" Fortunately, it looks like she's kept her spirit uplifted.

WWE reps had no comment.

"Survivor's" Racial Profile

9/15/2006 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Survivor" kicked off its thirteenth edition last night, and the usual get-to-know-you material that usually fills much of the first hour of the season had a particular hue -- it was undeniably about race. And the producers of the show made certain that racial stereotypes came right to the forefront. Asian-American tribe member "Cao Boi" talked about no one suspecting "little people with slanted eyes," and a member of the black team suggested that "black people don't like to be told what to do."

The first Immunity Challenge -- kind of an island version of a Rubik's Cube -- involved assembling puzzle boats, which were then used to retrieve fire; back on shore, the tribes then had to solve four more puzzles which led to the finish line, signified by lighting fire barrels.

The Asian-American tribe won the Challenge efficiently, and the African-American tribe -- Manihiki -- came in last. The Asian-American team also won the Reward Challenge.

Host Jeff Probst called this season "a social experiment like never before." (The early ratings suggest that people are interested -- well over 17 million people tuned in last night.) TMZ will be keeping tabs on "Survivor" to see how the formulas and results from this experiment in racial profiling pan out.

The Odds Are In For Which Race Will "Survive"

8/26/2006 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
In wake of the very controversial new season of hit reality television series "Survivor", Bodog.com has posted odds on which team will finish first on the show .

The newest installment of the reality show features tribes made up of contestants separated by their ethnicity. White, Asian American, Hispanic, and African-American tribes will be playing to survive the Polynesian Cook Islands.

Here are the numbers:

The Asian Americans......................13/7
The Hispanics.................................3/1
The African-American......................7/3
The Whites.....................................3/2

To the average Joe who doesn't play the sportsbook, this basically says that Whites will triumph, Blacks a close second (betting on them will double your bet), Hispanics in third (will pay three times your bet), and Asians have no chance.

TMZ wants to know what about the Indians and the Jews?
