10/11/2016 7:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

10/11/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Veep" star Reid Scott cleans up after Julia Louis-Dreyfus' presidential character, Selina Meyer, on the hit HBO TV show, but wouldn't want to do it for Donald Trump.

Reid plays Deputy Director of Communications Dan Egan on the show. We got him at LAX where he told us Donald should just throw in the towel at this point.

Reid's even got another woman for the job, but you can probably guess who that is too.

Billy Bush Bustin' Out the Sweatpants & Flip-Flops

10/10/2016 3:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1010-billy-bush-splashBilly Bush has been off the job for only a day ... but he's already in full relax mode.

Paps got Billy out in Encino Monday in sweatpants and flip-flops.

Billy's apologized for his part in the "Access Hollywood" video but it clearly didn't sit well with his bosses. He's been indefinitely suspended, and NBC sources say it's highly unlikely he'll return to "Today."


Amber Rose Breaks Down On 'DWTS' ... 'Don't Stop the Dance!'

10/10/2016 3:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Amber Rose is feeling the pressure of her next -- and possibly last -- appearance on "Dancing with The Stars" ... she even broke down in tears during rehearsal.

We got video of Amber going through her Monday night routine with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and after a few missteps, the frustration finally poured out. 

Check out the clip -- Amber confirms ... professional dancing ain't no walk in the park.

Sources close to the production tell us there's a lot more going on behind the scenes that pushed Amber to being so emotional. We're told Monday night's theme is "Most Memorable Year" -- and Amber's is 2013 ... when her 3-year-old son, Sebastian, was born. 

We're told she wants this dance to be perfect, and her mistakes during rehearsal got the best of her. Amber's up for elimination as well ... so this might be her last go-around on the big stage. 

Anthony Anderson My Mama's Checks Ain't Gonna Get Bigger

10/10/2016 3:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Anthony Anderson doesn't think people, especially his family, should believe what they read when it comes to his salary for "Black-ish."

There's a report out that Anthony makes about $100k an episode, making him one of the highest earning men on TV. 

But when we asked him about it outside D.O.M. Gallery in West Hollywood, he made it sound like the number was exaggerated. Unclear if it's too high or too low, but Anthony's got a good reason for keeping it a secret.

Kristin Chenoweth 'GoT' Ain't the Only Show In Need of a New Theme!

10/10/2016 8:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kristin Chenoweth thinks HBO has more than 1 show that needs a new opening song ... and her choice is timely.

We got Kristin at LAX and asked if she had any other shows besides "Game of Thrones" she wants to redo, like she'd mentioned to Jimmy Kimmel last week. She seems to think "Veep" is due for some vocals ... and then lays it on us.

HBO? Get Kristin's agent on the horn.

Bush's suspension was addressed twice ... first by Savannah Guthrie at the top of the show -- and then by Al Roker and Tamron Hall.

Al and Tamron would normally be joined by Billy for the third hour of "Today."

1009-billy-bush-today-show-tmzBilly Bush is getting yanked off NBC's 'Today' for his comments about women during the recorded conversation with Donald Trump.

NBC says Bush -- who hosts the 3rd hour of 'Today' -- is suspended indefinitely. Executive Producer Noah Oppenheim said, "There is simply no excuse for Billy's language and behavior on that tape."

On the 2005 Access Hollywood tape ... Bush was heard talking to Trump about an actress moments before she escorted both men to the set of a soap opera. Bush said, "Jeez, your girl's hot as s***! The Donald has scored!!" 

Bush has apologized saying he was "younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along" with what Trump described as "locker room banter."

Donald Trump Unaired 'Apprentice' Footage Can't Legally Be Released

10/9/2016 8:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1009-donald-trump-the-apprentice-NBC-01There is mounting pressure on "Apprentice" creator Mark Burnett to release unaired video and audio of Donald Trump on "The Apprentice" ... but there are iron-clad confidentiality agreements that would make such release impossible ... plus Burnett doesn't own the video.

Bill Pruitt, a producer on Seasons 1 and 2, tweeted, "I assure you:  when it comes to the #trumptapes there are far worse.  #justthebeginning."

There are reports Burnett owns the rights to the footage, but he does not.  It's owned by MGM, and there are written agreements that would almost guarantee a lawsuit if the footage is released ... especially because it captures many people other than Trump.  

As for the "Access Hollywood" audio, we're told that was not released by the show ... it was leaked by someone who had access to the tapes.

Trump's replacement on "The Apprentice," Arnold Schwarzenegger, just announced he won't vote for Trump.

Others in Hollywood have been pushing to get at "The Apprentice" footage. "Bachelor" creator Mike Fleiss is pushing for the release, telling TMZ it would provide "a real accurate look at who this man is."

Dr. Dre Threatens Sony If You Make Me Out as a Woman Beater, I'll Sue

10/9/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1007_Dr-Dre_TMZDr. Dre has delivered a clear threat over an upcoming TV movie that shows him beating his ex-GF senseless ... he's threatening to sue if it airs. 

Sony Pictures is set to release "Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel'le" ... a film that depicts Dre as a woman beater. We've learned Dre's legal team fired off a cease and desist letter ... demanding that Sony back off, if it doesn't want to end up in court. 

According to the letter, Dre flatly denies ever abusing Michel'le. It makes reference to the fact that they dated around 30 years ago and she never hinted at abuse or any type of violent behavior on his part. They also say she never sought medical treatment or filed a police report. 

We're told Dre's character in the film is extremely violent -- attacking Michel'le by pulling her hair, punching her in the face and even pulling a gun on her.

Dre's attorneys have also warned Michel'le to back off.

The film is set for release next week. 


'Modern Family' Kid Star Jay and Gloria's Baby Boy Raked in 6 Figures!

10/9/2016 12:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0930-jeremy-maquire-modern-family-fun-art-GETTY-01The kid who's now playing Sofia Vergara's youngest son on "Modern Family" got a fat payday for his first season ... north of $130k. 

5-year-old Jeremy Maguire -- starring as Joe Pritchett in season 7 -- signed a deal for $9,000 an episode.

Joe popped up on camera for 15 of the 22 episodes last year, meaning he made $135k. He's also due for a 4% raise each year they bring him back ... and he's already shooting season 8. 

Jeremy better enjoy the cash while he can -- producers have recast his character in the past ... so it could happen again.  

'Access Hollywood' Trump Was Talking About Nancy O'Dell Edits Out Billy Bush

Breaking News

"Access Hollywood" just aired the audio of Donald Trump and its former anchor Billy Bush, disclosing they were talking about another former anchor -- Nancy O'Dell -- and they also aired Trump's comments about a soap star but they edited out Billy's "attaboy" reaction.

Trump and Bush were talking about a woman named Nancy ... Trump was saying he tried having sex with her but she wasn't having it. 

Then the subject turns to soap star Arianne Zucker. In the unedited version, Bush says, "Sheesh ... your girl's hot as s*** in the purple." He also says, "The Donald has scored.  Woah, my man!"  Those comments were not included in the "Access" piece.

Billy Bush has since apologized, saying, "Obviously I’m embarrassed and ashamed. It’s no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago — I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I’m very sorry."
