10/20/2016 6:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Andy Cohen's got a real good reason not to slide into Billy Bush's anchor seat on "Today."

'Celeb Apprentice' Richard Hatch Trump 'Slides Up' On Women ... And Melania Knows It

10/20/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Celebrity Apprentice" contestant Richard Hatch says he witnessed Donald Trump's lewd conduct with women repeatedly, and anyone claiming differently -- including his family -- is full of it.

Hatch, who famously won the first "Survivor" crown before working closely with Donald on 'Apprentice' ... says the boss made a habit of getting close to women as soon as they walked in the room. He adds ... Trump never took the hint either when they'd try to shake him.

Richard says he didn't witness the incident recently reported about Gary Busey allegedly groping a female staffer while Trump laughed. But he says he wouldn't be surprised if Donald and producers looked the other way, since they loved having his "crazy" on the show.

He also says Melania claiming others are "egging on" Trump's behavior ... is pure fantasy.

"Dance Moms" star JoJo Siwa doesn't mind a little friendly competition with alum Maddie Ziegler at the moment ... 'cause she thinks they'll be pallin' around under one roof when it's all said and done. 

We got the 13-year-old dancer out in Playa Vista Tuesday where she told us she and Maddie will end up being the next Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato.

Here's the thing ... Maddie's already moved on from "Dance Moms" to make waves with top-notch stars like Sia and Kristen Wiig. She was also a judge on this season's 'So You Think You Can Dance.' In short, JoJo's got some catching up to do.

Check out the clip -- JoJo's definitely got Maddie's back. Here's hoping Maddie feels the same way.

Melania Trump Don't Believe All These Women

10/18/2016 6:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Melania Trump went on the offensive Tuesday, saying the women who are accusing her husband of sexual assault should be viewed with great suspicion, and it's all about timing.

Melania appeared on "Fox and Friends" and said if these accusers are real, they should prosecute their claims in a court of law, not on CNN 3 weeks before the election.

She says she was profoundly hurt by false reports she was an escort. And she thinks her husband was goaded by Billy Bush and Howard Stern.

Melania also explained why she doesn't need anyone's sympathy.

Billy Bush Officially Done at 'Today' ... NBC Pays Up

10/17/2016 3:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1017-billy-bush-nbc-tmzBilly Bush and NBC have reached a financial settlement on his "Today" contract ... officially ending his employment with the network after the Donald Trump tape leaked. 

Sources with direct knowledge of the negotiations tell us Billy is happy with the final numbers ... which are confidential. As we reported, Bush had just joined NBC's flagship show in August, signing a 3-year deal for $3.5 million per year.

NBC suspended him after the "Access Hollywood" tape came out 10 days ago. Our sources said Bush felt the punishment was unfair because he'd openly talked about the tape in front of his bosses ... and was never disciplined.

We're told he felt like a scapegoat and was cut loose purely for PR reasons. 

An NBC memo to staffers said, "While he was a new member of the TODAY team, he was a valued colleague and longtime member of the broader NBC family. We wish success as he goes forward." 


Bob Saget My Fave 'Home Video' Ever ... Gross Monkey Business

10/16/2016 8:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bob Saget's definitive all-time favorite clip from his time hosting "America's Funniest Home Videos" is highly controversial ... although not by today's standards.

Bob was inside the Loews Hotel in Hollywood when he confessed to being a sucker for the vid of a monkey falling out of a tree from the smell of his own butt.

As much as he loved the now classic clip, Bob explained why it wasn't seen on any other TV show -- even during a famous late night program -- for the longest time. In his eyes, something stinks about the monkey butt coverage.

Bob's kidding. We think.

Billy Bush Settlement Near Oh So Close to Saying, Goodbye NBC

10/14/2016 4:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1014-billy-bush-tmz-03update_graphic_red_bar6:20 PM PT -- Billy's lawyer Marshall Grossman tells TMZ the report that Billy settled for $10 million is "utterly false," adding a $10 mil figure has never even been discussed.update_grey_gray_barBilly Bush and NBC are days away from sealing a deal ... but it's not done yet, and it could still go south.

We're told some deal points have been agreed upon, but reports that Billy will walk away with $10 mil are inaccurate ... it's less.

That said, there are still unresolved issues that could torpedo the settlement negotiations, but the likelihood is both sides will work it out ... very possibly this weekend.

TMZ broke the story, Billy showed up at a Century City law firm Friday morning and sat across the table from an NBC exec and an NBC lawyer to strike an exit agreement.

Billy Bush Negotiating Settlement with NBC

10/14/2016 1:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1014-billy-bush-tmzBilly Bush showed up to a law office Friday morning ... to hash out a settlement with the NBC execs who want to give him the ax ... TMZ has learned.

Our sources say an NBC lawyer and a senior executive from NBC News "with full negotiating authority" were across the table from Bush and his attorney, Marshall Grossman.

Grossman tells TMZ the AM negotiations were "positive," adding, "I anticipate a favorable resolution in the near future."

Millions of dollars are on the table ... Billy was just months into a 3-year contract with "Today" and our NBC sources say he was pulling in $3.5 million a year.

We're told NBC made a decision Thursday to sit down at the table because Billy's people made it clear they would sue if the network tried firing him for a cause.

As we've previously reported, Billy was talking openly about the "Access Hollywood" tape in early August and NBC honchos knew what he had said, but had no problem with the tape until it was leaked.

The negotiations are continuing Friday afternoon, and Billy and NBC could be parting company by day's end.

Exclusive Details

1014-marlee-matlin-donald-trump-tmz-02Marlee Matlin is firing back at Donald Trump after seeing reports he allegedly referred to the deaf actress as "retarded" during her time on "Celebrity Apprentice."

Production staffers from the show claim Trump scribbled notes during board meetings, and according to The Daily Beast ... some included, "Marlee, is she retarded??" The report also said Trump would poke fun at Matlin's voice.

Matlin says, "The term is abhorrent and should never be used. The fact that we are talking about this during a very important moment in American history has upset me deeply." 

Sources close to Marlee tell TMZ the actress was unaware of the allegation, but added ... Marlee never felt Trump was against her during her time on the show. She finished in 2nd place.

Marlee, a staunch Clinton supporter, also says, "I have a voice. And I'm using that voice to make myself heard ... and vote."
