10/18/2016 7:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Panic! at the Disco's Brendon Urie has a "Stranger Things" cameo in his newest music video ... and he wants to feature more of Hollywood's finest in the future. 

We got Brendon at LAX and asked how Will Byers from the hit Netflix show ended up in his latest video. He says they were fans of each other, and got to work.

But Noah Schnapp isn't the only A-lister the singer wants to work with. Watch -- he's already got a whole list ... and maybe even a new career in mind.

10/17/2016 5:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Melania Trump says it goes both ways when it comes to Donald Trump and inappropriate behavior with women, because women come on to her husband right in front of her!

Anderson Cooper asked Melania if Trump's words on the "Access Hollywood" tape describe sexual assault, and her response is surprising. She's clearly standing by her man ... and threw shade at the idea women are angels.

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."

Check out the pics ... the enormous bookcase and soaring ceilings are fit for the Mother of Dragons.

'Unreal' Star Constance Zimmer My Show's No 'Bachelor' ... But We'll Take Chris Harrison

10/14/2016 7:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Fans hoping for an "UnREAL" and 'Bachelor' crossover just might get it ... according to the scripted drama's star, Constance Zimmer.

Constance plays the ruthless producer of a reality TV dating competition on "UnREAL" -- the comparisons to "The Bachelor" are pretty obvious, but she denies getting any inspiration from it.

Still, she's open to crossing the streams, and so is master of the rose ceremony, Chris Harrison.

Sounds like all that's left is to get some agents on the phone. 

Oprah Sued I'll Fix Oprah's Wagon She Stole 'Fix My Life'!!!

10/13/2016 1:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1013-oprah-winfrey-TMZ-02Oprah Winfrey ripped off the hit series "Iyanla: Fix My Life" ... according to a woman who's had beef with mighty O for years.

Otisa C. Strickland claims in a new lawsuit ... 'Fix My Life' -- which appears on OWN -- is a carbon copy of a show she created called "The Agency."

Otisa says back in 2011 she got in a fight with Oprah over a different show, but it put Otisa on Oprah's radar. Otisa says she had already copyrighted "The Agency" and O had access to the treatment.

According to the suit, the shows are the same ... both featuring a counselor traveling across the country, going inside the homes of people with big problems.

Frankly, it sounds pretty generic, but Otisa is ready for another fight. She wants 'Fix My Life' off the air stat ... and plenty of loot.

10/13/2016 6:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The soap star ogled by Donald Trump and Billy Bush on that "Access Hollywood" video says what the 2 guys did is textbook misogyny.

Arianne Zucker said on "Today" she's going to try and turn this into a positive, by showing her daughter how to react in the face of gutter talk against women.

She's pretty compelling.

Donald Trump He Was Never Vulgar with Me ... Says Ex-Beauty Queen

10/13/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former Miss Teen USA Katie Blair says Donald Trump is far from the sleazy guy he's being made out to be ... based on her experiences with him on TV shows and pageants.

Katie was Miss Teen USA '06 and Miss CA USA '11 ... and Trump owned both pageants at the time. We talked to her about her interactions with the boss, and while she admits there were plenty of situations for him to leer ... she insists it NEVER happened.

Katie says anyone who's had any experience with live TV would know there's an obvious reason why Trump couldn't have done many of the things some other pageant contestants have accused him of doing.

Check out her take on Trump -- who stood by her during her scandal with former Miss USA Tara Conner. Katie's clearly got his back when it comes to his ethics.

As for whether he's got her vote? Katie's made her decision, though it's hardly a ringing endorsement.
