O.J. Simpson 'If I Did It' Was Not a Confession

3/16/2018 9:16 AM PDT
Breaking News

O.J. Simpson insists his 'If I Did It' TV special was NOT a confession to murder -- and says the people on the show were all "a bunch of haters."

Simpson gave his first sit-down interview since leaving prison to the Buffalo News -- and gave his own take on "O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession?"

"When people want to make money or get ratings, they're going to pimp me. I'm going to get pimped."

Simpson says his friends had been teasing him about the show and whether or not it was a REAL confession

"Listen, if I confessed 12 years ago, you would have heard about it 12 years ago!"

When asked if he's watched the FOX special, Simpson replied -- "I watch nothing of me."

"I didn't watch the [FOX special] because I knew they were all haters, and people will say things that are just not true, and there's nobody there to challenge them, and that would piss me off."

"So why [watch it]? It's a beautiful day. I'm about to go play golf. Why should I have some crap in my mind? You've got to let it go."

Stan Lee Missing Pooch Found & Returned By NFL Legend Jim Brown!!!

3/16/2018 1:00 AM PDT

Stan Lee needed a real-life superhero to find and return his lost dog. Enter the immortal football legend, Jim Brown, who proved not all heroes wear capes.

Sources close to Stan tell TMZ ... the comic book legend's Mini Pomeranian, Charlotte, went missing last week, though it's unclear how she got loose. In any case, Stan's peeps canvassed the Hollywood Hills neighborhood where he lives and his business partner Keya Morgan posted "Lost Dog" flyers everywhere.

A few days passed, but the posters garnered zero leads ... leaving Stan resigned to the idea Charlotte was gone for good. But, not so fast.

We're told the NFL Hall of Famer and his wife, Monique -- who live about a mile away from Stan -- found Charlotte in their yard ... scared with no collar. The couple sprung into action ... first firing off an email to a bunch of their neighbors, but that fetched no clues.

The Browns were undeterred, and brought Charlotte to a vet, who found a microchip planted near her neck, but, again, no luck there either because the chip wasn't registered.

The Browns then went old school and canvassed several neighborhoods and BAM ... they saw the posters, called the number and just like that, Charlotte was reunited with Stan. 

No word on whether Jim gets a reward!

'Breakfast Club' DJ Envy Desus & Mero Need to Know I'm Serious ... No More Wife Jokes!!!

3/15/2018 2:11 PM PDT

DJ Envy stormed outta an interview with Desus and Mero on the 'Breakfast Club' to drive home one point -- his wife is NOT to be messed with again.

Envy tells TMZ ... he's cool with Desus and Mero now, but during Thursday morning's episode he says he had to go after the duo publicly for dissing his wife, Gia Casey, on their Viceland show.

If ya missed it, D&M made a crack about Gia staying with Envy for the money after they addressed rumors he'd cheated on her. Envy wasted no time putting his friends on notice -- introducing them as "d***head and p****." 

Co-host Charlamagne Tha God was cracking up, but Envy was heated.

Desus & Mero definitely wanted to squash the whole thing after apologizing. Envy told us why he still had to walk out of the studio -- but also why he thinks he'll be cool with D&M from here on out. 

'Jeopardy' Contestant Trebek Knew I Was in 'Willy Wonka' But, HE Didn't Ask!!!

3/15/2018 11:05 AM PDT

Alex Trebek hates all things 'Willy Wonka' -- that's our takeaway anyway, after hearing from the 'Jeopardy' contestant who was also in the movie ... which Alex completely ignored.

Paris Themmen -- who played little Mike Teavee in "Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory" -- tells TMZ ... he didn't bring up that interesting tidbit while getting introduced on Tuesday night's episode because Trebek had clearly decided NOT to mention it.

Themmen says Trebek had 3 "fun facts" about him, but obviously chose to run with a backpacking nugget instead. According to Themmen, Alex is a big travel guy, and that apparently took precedent with him over anything as stupid as classic movies.

Even crazier ... Themmen says there's history with Alex and 'Wonka.' He tells us his wife was a 'Jeopardy' champ back in the day, and also had the 'Wonka' fun fact about her hubby on her card. He says Alex ignored it then, too ... until he couldn't.

Bill Nye Stephen Hawking Blew Our Minds!

3/15/2018 8:52 AM PDT

Stephen Hawking's contributions to science are almost too much for Bill Nye the Science Guy to grasp, because they require thinking beyond what actually exists. Yeah, buckle up.

We got Bill Wednesday at the U.S. Capitol, where he was repping for the Planetary Society. He says that's how he was able to meet the late, genius physicist/cosmologist.

Bill says Stephen's legacy isn't about any single discovery, it's more about changing the way people think about the cosmos, and he takes a stab at explaining it to our camera guy, too.

Basically, it's a SUPER brief history of Hawking's time on Earth.  

Melissa Gilbert Slams Betsy DeVos 'I Think She's a MORON!!!'

3/15/2018 6:38 AM PDT

Melissa Gilbert wants people to know how she really feels about Betsy DeVos, who, for starters .. Melissa considers a total embarrassment to their home state. And, that's the nicest thing she said.

The former "Little House on the Prairie" child star was leaving NBC Studios Wednesday in NYC when we asked for her 2 cents on Donald Trump's Secretary of Education, who recently bombed the crap outta her interview on "60 Minutes."

Melissa's no stranger to politics. She ran for congress in Michigan in 2016, and won the Democratic primary before health issues forced her to drop out -- and the fact DeVos is also from Michigan ain't sitting well with her.

She summed up the "60 Minutes" interview with one word, and is clearly baffled by Betsy's body of work. TBH, Melissa came THIS close to calling her clueless.

It ain't easy being "Secretary of Educatuon."

'TRL' MTV Overhauls Music Vid Show Again

3/14/2018 1:00 PM PDT

3:30 PM PT -- MTV says the email we obtained doesn't tell the full story, which is that 'TRL' will be moving time slots, but it's also expanding.

A spokesperson says the show will be back in new "daily late night and morning shows this summer." The rep adds the show's been a huge success since its return.

MTV is pulling the plug on its revived version of "Total Request Live" ... TMZ has learned.

We obtained an email sent to employees informing them the series is being canceled once again. As you might know, TRL was brought back to the network in October, after being off the air for nearly 9 years.

According to the message ... TRL will not be returning April 9 as it was scheduled to after going on hiatus in February. Instead, the afternoon show will "pivot to short form content that will be featured on social and digital platforms."

Translation: MTV thought they'd greenlit 'Godfather: Part II," but it was more like 'Part III.'

Employees were told 'Total Request' late after shows will continue, along with a "Jersey Shore" after show on April 19 ... but 'TRL' as you know it, is officially done.

Olivia Munn I'll Never Fly United ... Nobody Should!!!

3/14/2018 11:21 AM PDT

Olivia Munn's had it with United Airlines, and vows to never fly with the company after its latest debacle ... which involved the death of a poor dog.

We got the actress at LAX Wednesday, who tells us she's done with United not only because it can't take care of animals ... but also because of its recent history of not being able to take care of all its human passengers.

Olivia's strongly encouraging everyone to stop flying with the airline, and not just for now -- but for good.

As we reported ... United Airlines may be on the hook for big damages over the death of a family's French Bulldog, Kokito, after a flight attendant shockingly made the dog stay in the overhead compartment.

United had another huge scandal after a doctor was violently dragged off a plane last April.

Tomi Lahren My Dog Nearly Ruined My TV Appearance So, I Kicked It!!!

3/14/2018 11:14 AM PDT

Tomi Lahren says she kicked her dog multiple times because it was making too much noise during her appearance on national TV. 

Tomi's made her career on saying shocking things, but this might be her coup de grace. The "FOX & Friends" contributor posted video Wednesday morning of the dog, Kota, playfully wagging its tail while she berated the pup for chewing a bone loudly.

Bad timing, for Tomi apparently ... because she says she had to "kick her about 5 times during the show." Can't tell if she's serious, but if she is ... it's definitely her most heinous act yet.

We're hoping Kota's wagging tail is a sign she wasn't actually abused. We're reaching out to Tomi for comment.

If she was kicking her pet, Tomi covered it up pretty well during her FOX hit.  

O.J. Simpson Posing with a Murderer ... Hypothetically, Of Course

3/14/2018 10:32 AM PDT

O.J. Simpson was all smiles and snapshots just a couple days after confessing to murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman ... with 2 women ... who didn't seem to care.

Simpson was spotted out Tuesday night at Kona Grill in Summerlin, NV -- a ritzy 'burb within Vegas -- when two older ladies wanted to get their photos taken with The Juice.

Whether they'd seen him give a "hypothetical" blow-by-blow account of slaying his ex-wife and Goldman on national TV a few days earlier is unclear. What is clear, however, is that some people, including these two, still love them some O.J. all these years later.

Smile for the camera ... murders be damned.

Sharon Osbourne Makes Busty Suggestion For Trump's Wall

3/14/2018 7:08 AM PDT

Sharon Osbourne's got a borderline inappropriate suggestion for President Trump's border wall that, if implemented, would probably entice more people to climb over -- on BOTH sides!

We got Sharon leaving Craig's Tuesday night in WeHo and wanted to get her take on Trump's wall-shopping trip outside San Diego. As we reported, the Prez checked out some wall, and at a news conference he called Mexicans "incredible climbers." Classic 45, right?

Sharon at first scoffed at the question, but then dug into it ... and wanted to know if Trump was adding a, shall we say, special touch to wall models he perused. She was joking, but something tells us POTUS would give her idea some thought.

Later, Sharon was leaving Delilah when she REALLY went for Trump's jugular.

Eric Dane Doctor's Got a Brand New Bag

3/14/2018 7:14 AM PDT

Eric Dane might be having a major blonde moment in the wake of him and his wife filing for divorce -- that, or he's just really feeling himself ... we're not sure. 

The "Grey's Anatomy" star was spotted rockin' a brand new 'do Tuesday in WeHo -- combed up and to the side ... and a bit more bleached than what we're used to seeing. He was also wearing a pair of cool sunglasses, with a very cool coat. Ladykiller, are we right?

We broke the story ... Eric's wife of 14 years, Rebecca Gayheart, filed for divorce last month, and Eric responded with a very similar filing. He agreed to her spousal support request, as well as her bid to gain joint legal and physical custody of their 2 kids.

Now that most of the dirty work appears to be settled ... time to get back to channeling McSteamy.

T.J. Miller Settles with Driver He Allegedly Smacked Around

3/13/2018 4:53 PM PDT

T.J. Miller and his driver -- who he allegedly beat up after the 2 had an argument over Donald Trump -- are letting bygones be bygones ... because they reached a settlement.

According to new legal docs ... the "Silicon Valley" star and Wilson Deon Thomas III came to an agreement last Thursday that will put the alleged beatdown case to bed. It's unclear what the terms were, but we're guessing the driver got some cash from the comedian.

We broke the story ... Miller was arrested in December 2016 for allegedly striking his driver in the head and shoulder after he got mad at him for being a Trump supporter. The driver claimed T.J. was getting high on Whip-Its before the attack.

Miller dodged criminal charges, but was still facing a civil suit from Thomas ... until now.
