Lance Bass Still Tied to 'Brady Bunch' Remodel

11/5/2018 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lance Bass was noticeably absent from the 'Brady Bunch' reunion at the Brady crib HGTV plans to remodel, but he's still going to be involved in the show ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the production tell us this week's Brady kids get-together -- which featured all of Mike and Carol's TV spawn -- was simply a photo shoot that will be used for promos when the show is officially announced.

We're told Lance's team spoke to HGTV execs just last week and was assured he's not off the project -- the network plans to tap him in on the project sometime in 2019. It's still unclear if he'll be hosting, producing ... or both.

In addition to the Brady gig, we're told HGTV's offered him a second project. So, it's clear things are still cool between Lance and network execs.

As for the remodel itself ... our sources say the building team might've hit a minor setback after stumbling across a ton of asbestos in the house, which could delay the demolition process a bit.

Hayden Panettiere Drunk and Frantic According to New Police Report

11/4/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Hayden Panettiere answered the door to police last month in an apparent drunk and frantic state after her new beau got into an altercation with his dad ... according to cops.

TMZ has obtained a police report from the Greenville City Police Department in South Carolina regarding an incident that went down late last month between Hayden's beau Brian Hickerson, and his father David. Police responded to a call for assault and battery.

According to the docs, the responding officer saw what appeared to be Brian chasing his father through the house with a Gatorade bottle in his hand. The officer says Hayden rushed to open the door for him in a panic, and he immediately put Brian in cuffs to figure out what was happening. 

The officer says Brian was uncooperative, refusing to give any personal info because of the potential negative impact the incident could have on Hayden. Hayden fessed up ... she and the father had been drinking before the altercation.

David had visible injuries on his face -- severe bruising and bleeding -- he said he had just fallen.

Our sources say Hayden denies having been drunk.

Hayden's been dating Brian for a few months now after splitting from ex-boxer baby daddy, Wladimir Klitschko, with whom she has one child. Brian's the guy who came to Hayden's rescue this summer when she was getting swarmed by paps in Hollywood.

Pete Davidson Ex Cazzie David Was Other Girl He Proposed To

11/3/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Pete Davidson joked he was "0 for 3" in a new 'SNL' promo in which he proposed to a new chick -- and now we know who the third girl is ... Larry David's daughter. 

Sources tell us that Pete had proposed to Cazzie David multiple times during their two-year relationship. The exact number of times isn't clear, but we're told it was definitely more than once. Our sources say Cazzie rejected his offer each time.

They split in May before Pete got with, and eventually proposed to, Ariana Grande. As you know, the rest is history. 

As we reported ... Ariana took some shots at Pete in since-deleted tweets, saying, "for somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh. thank u, next."

Sources close to the former couple tell us Ariana felt betrayed by Pete's remarks, because they'd both agreed to not talk about their split in public. We're told Pete's now scrapping any further references to their breakup for this weekend's show, and Lorne Michaels signed off.

There was speculation as to who Pete was referencing when he dropped the "0 for 3" line, because he's dated a handful of chicks over the years, including "Girl Code" star Carly Aquilino -- whom he dated before Cazzie. 

But, we've been assured ... that third chick is absolutely Cazzie, who's since scrubbed her IG of any Pete references. Seems to be a pattern with his exes.

Alec Baldwin Denies Throwing Punch ... In Parking Spot Fight

11/2/2018 7:21 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

7:11 PM PT -- Alec has denied the allegations on Twitter, stating, "Normally, I would not comment on something as egregiously misstated as today's story. However, the assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false. I wanted to go on the record stating as such." 

1:30 PM PT -- Baldwin was just released and said nothing as he left the police station.

12:56 PM PT -- Baldwin has been charged with misdemeanor assault and harassment. He was given a desk appearance ticket.Alec Baldwin was arrested in NYC Friday morning ... TMZ has learned.

Witnesses tell us ... the actor got into an argument with another man over a parking spot near 10th Street and 5th Avenue. Our law enforcement sources tell us Alec had a friend holding the spot for him, but the other man swooped in.

We're told Baldwin became irate, an argument ensued, and Baldwin punched the man in the jaw. The alleged victim, a 49-year-old male, was taken to the hospital.

One witness tells us Alec yelled "F**k off" during the fight. Cops were called and Alec was arrested. Baldwin lives in the area.

Of course, he openly detests and mocks President Trump while playing him on 'SNL' -- so, not surprisingly, the Prez weighed in on the arrest. What is shocking is how reserved he was.

'DWTS' Champ J.R. Martinez 'Better Call Saul' Amputee Messed Up But I'll Give Him a Pass, If ...

11/3/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The "Better Call Saul" actor who made headlines this week for falsely presenting himself as a war vet, deserves a chance to make good in Hollywood ... according to real Army vet and actor J.R. Martinez.

J.R. -- who won "Dancing With the Stars" in 2011 -- tells us Todd LaTourrette's admission he lied for years about how he lost his arm in order to score acting roles ... is absolutely despicable. Still, he's willing to give LaTourrette a pass, if he's serious about shedding light on mental illness. 

If you missed it, LaTourrette confessed to KOB-TV he'd cut off his arm 17 years ago during a bipolar episode. When he started acting, he told producers he'd been wounded during military service. He says the lie worked for years and helped him score the role of Skell on 'Saul.'

J.R. says he appreciates Todd copping to the lie. He added, IF Todd puts "action" behind his promise to raise mental health awareness ... there's no reason he can't keep acting.

Interestingly, J.R. feels producers and casting directors also bare some blame. Check out his take ... he seems to be saying Hollywood owes it to real vets to make sure they're being authentically represented.

EXCLUSIVE

UFC star Israel Adesanya is such a big anime freak, he got an INSANE stomach tattoo inspired by his favorite shows ... and he's giving TMZ Sports the breakdown!!

Adesanya -- whose nickname "The Style Bender" comes from the popular Nickelodeon series "Avatar: The Last Airbender" -- says his motivation comes from the characters in the uber-popular "Naruto" and 'Avatar.'

You can see part of Israel's stomach tat is inspired by Naruto's stomach tat from the show. 

If you have no idea what the hell any of this means, click here and here and here.

Adesanya has a BUNCH of different cartoon tattoos -- he even has Deadpool!! -- and, together, they make up one unique and interesting collection.

BTW -- Israel's fighting Derek Brunson at UFC 230 ... so we'll see if he can harness Naruto's energy on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden.

Norm Macdonald I'm Not Nearly As Offensive or As Funny!!!

11/2/2018 4:31 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Norm Macdonald says you won't be offended at his comedy shows anymore .. but you also won't laugh your ass off. Such is reality and it sucks.

We got Norm Friday afternoon at LAX and asked if he's walking on eggshells given his propensity to push the envelope and offend his audience. You'll recall Norm caught tons of backlash for defending Roseanne and Louis C.K.

Norm tried to dig himself out of that hole ... but things got worse before a mea culpa on "The View."

Fact is ... Norm trying to please the PC police has severely dented the comedic process. And, btw ... Howie Mandel agrees. Norm longs for the days when a comedian could go way over the line, rein himself back to the line ... but not go over it.

That's no longer the case ... and the 1% is to blame.

Reza from 'Shahs of Sunset' Hate Trump's 'GoT' Meme But I Support His Iran Sanctions

11/2/2018 4:10 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

When it comes to President Trump firing off "Game of Thrones" memes to announce U.S. foreign policy in Iran, a "Shahs of Sunset" star says ... hate the messenger, but LOVE the message.

We ran into Reza Farahan Friday on Rodeo Drive in Bev Hills and, seeing as how he was born in Tehran, we had to get his take on Trump's "Sanctions Are Coming" tweet. Perhaps surprisingly, Reza fully supports POTUS and his hard line with Iran ... but there's a catch.

Watch the clip, you can tell it pains Reza to no end to say he's lockstep with Trump -- but says he's trying to focus on the big picture for his friends and family in Iran.

But, don't get it twisted ... he HATES the 'GoT' ripoff the White House used to announce the sanctions. Mostly because it's incredibly insensitive to the very people he claims to be helping with the sanctions!

Reza's got some choice words for Trump and his social media team.

'Too Stupid to Die' Stars Bitch Slaps with Taped Thumbtacks Watch the Bloody Mess!!!

11/2/2018 2:33 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Too Stupid to Die" stars sure know how to get a kick outta slapping each other ... blood, cuts and scars be damned.

Chad Tepper and Zach Holmes appeared on "TMZ Live" Friday and told us a little bit about why they enjoy taking on the roles of this generation's "Jackass" ... taking a LOT from the playbook of Bam Margera and Steve-O. Chad and Zach summed it up with one word ... boredom!!

If you don't know ... Chad and Zach's new show on MTV -- which premieres Friday night at 9:30 -- has them putting themselves through some of the most ridiculous stunts ... like when Zach threw on a firecracker vest. You can guess it didn't go too well for Zach.

And, just for fun -- again, their words -- Chad and Zach had a little something up their sleeve for us. Actually, more like on their hands -- taped with thumbtacks, for a little slap game.

It goes without saying ... kids, do not try this at home.

Jillian Barberie F*** Cancer!!! My Boobs Were 'Real and Spectacular'

11/2/2018 2:16 PM PDT

Jillian Barberie has the most awesome way of saying, "F**k cancer" -- on the heels of announcing she's been diagnosed with breast cancer, she's celebrating her girls ... and yes, that means her boobs.

The former Fox personality -- for "Good Day LA" and FOX NFL -- tweeted Thursday ... just as she got the news ... that she had cancer in one breast, and it had spread to her lymph nodes. Jillian said she was going to share her journey with all her fans on social media.

True to form, Jillian tweeted Friday about her plans for a double mastectomy, and said her boobs had served her well. As JB put it, "They were real and spectacular and fed two babies!! Time to say farewell next Friday." She included a bunch of throwback bikini pics. Gotta love her spirit.

Jillian says she's having surgery next Friday, and will have reconstructive surgery later.

We're wishing her the best.

Kim Kardashian West All Aboard the Elephant Express!!

11/2/2018 12:43 PM PDT

Kim Kardashian West is no queen of the jungle ... but certainly looks the part riding a giant elephant during her family trip to Bali.

Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Scott and their kids all made the trip last week. The group was flown to an elephant sanctuary on a private helicopter where they spent several hours and got up close and personal with the gentle giants.

You can see from the pics, Kim didn't hesitate to get on for a quick ride around the park ... and Kourtney joined in too. 

Kanye wasn't on the trip -- we're told he stayed back because of work commitments.

The family is back home now, but 'KUWTK' cameras captured most of the vacation, so there's plenty more to come. 

HBO Yo, Trump ... Lay Off Our 'Game of Thrones' Line!!!

11/2/2018 10:28 AM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump used "Game of Thrones" to warn he was about to impose sanctions on Iran -- and while his supporters might've been amused ... HBO definitely is not. 

A rep for the cable network tells TMZ ... "We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes."

In case you missed it, President Trump tweeted out a meme of himself with a 'GoT'-esque background and font that read ... "Sanctions are Coming."

It's an obvious nod to the hit series' oft-repeated line, "Winter is Coming" ... and it looks like he was trying to portray himself as Jon Snow (or maybe the Mad King?).

Either way, it's clear HBO is not down for the shout-out ... or the use of its font and background. Unclear if they plan on taking any further steps -- like a cease and desist letter or a lawsuit -- to keep Trump out of Westeros ... but this definitely sounds like a warning shot.
