O.J. Simpson Cuts to the Chase

3/11/2018 1:00 AM PST

O.J. Simpson talked about the slow-speed Bronco chase as if it was a victory for him, because judging from public opinion on the streets -- literally -- all he saw was support.

Simpson told his story to Judith Regan years ago, and it's now the centerpiece of the FOX special based on the book, 'If I Did It.'  

This clip is predictably gross ... Simpson, a supreme narcissist, allegedly was contemplating suicide, but when you hear him talk he was reveling in the show of support from people who somehow thought it was a good idea to cheer him on as he drove on the 405. 

It's almost like he was taking a poll ... whether people were buying what the media had been telling them all week long -- with blood going from the bodies to his bathroom at Rockingham, and a cut finger that matched a knife wound -- he was guilty as hell.

The show airs tonight on FOX at 8 PM. 

'Stranger Things' Directors Apologize to Females on Set Sometimes Tempers get Frayed

3/11/2018 7:32 AM PDT

"Stranger Things" writers and directors Matt and Ross Duffer are speaking out about claims they verbally abused multiple women on the set.

The Duffer Bros issued a statement ... "We are deeply upset to learn that someone felt uncomfortable on our set.  Due to the high-stress nature of production, tempers occasionally get frayed, and for that, we apologize."

The statement, which was posted on E!, included a caveat ... "However, we think it is important not to mischaracterize our set, where we believe strongly in treating everyone fairly regardless of gender, orientation, race, religion, or anything else."

Netflix, which carries the hit show investigated the complaints and found no wrongdoing on the part of the brothers. 

The investigation was triggered by Peyton Brown, a former grip on the show, who targeted the Duffers, saying, "I will not be a part of the filming of Season 3 of Stranger Things.  Why, you ask?  Because I stand with my sisters."  


SNL 'This is Us' ... Trump Style

3/11/2018 7:07 AM PDT

It's one of the most biting parodies of the Trump Administration so far by "SNL" ... a spoof of "This is Us" called "This is U.S." and it spares no one.

Sarah Hucakbee Sanders is probably fuming today over her character, but Ben Carson may actually be getting a chuckle over his Sterling K. Brown-type character.  And who knew Pete Davidson actually resembled Jared Kushner and played him hilariously?

Check out t he last vestiges of Anthony Scaramucci, Hope Hicks and Sean Spicer ... again, hilarious.

"SNL" really went for the juggler this weekend ... doing a parody of "The Bachelor" but instead of Arie the main dude is Robert Mueller

You gotta think as much as they hate Trump the cast and crew might be a little torn at the 2020 ballot box -- if Trump makes it that far -- because the show hasn't been this good in a long, long time. 

'Love & Hip Hop' Benzino Cuts Althea a Break In Domestic Beating Case

3/11/2018 12:20 AM PST

Ex-"Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" star Althea Eaton won't be prosecuted for smacking her baby daddy, Benzinoupside his head, and she can partially thank Benzino himself for that.

TMZ broke the story ... Althea and Benzino had a domestic dispute a few weeks ago, and things got out of control when she whacked Benzino in front of cops. Althea was promptly arrested and booked for misdemeanor battery.

But, the City Attorney's Office tells TMZ ... the case was rejected because Benzino suffered no actual injuries. Other than, maybe ... his ego. More importantly, we're told Benzino didn't want to press charges.

And they lived happily ever after ... for now.

O.J. Simpson I'm the Victim Ron and Nicole Killed Me

3/10/2018 12:50 AM PST

O.J. Simpson continues to shock, because he blames the people he killed for metaphorically killing him.

It's actually hard to watch, but Simpson says Ron Goldman and his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, somehow killed him, presumably because their murders put him in a bad spot.

It's an amazing comment, given Judith Regan -- who published "If I Did It" with Simpson -- says Simpson's lawyer called her and confessed the murders to her, and said the only reason the book title needed the word "if" was so O.J. could have deniability with his children.

And for bad measure, Simpson also says he loved Nicole but didn't like her at the time of her death.

The Fox special airs Sunday at 8 PM. Gripping and, at the same time, nauseating. 

'Blue's Clues' Reboot Open to Female Host

3/10/2018 12:40 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Beloved children's show "Blue's Clues" is returning after a 12-year hiatus, but the half animated and half live-action program's host might look very different.

We're told the "Blue's Clues" team is seriously considering replacing the hosting spot, previously held by Steve Burns and Donovan Patton, with a woman. 

Sources tell us production for the reboot is paying close attention to what fans want via social media. So far, the hashtag #BringBackSteve has been trending. We're told production hasn't ruled out bringing the fan fave back, but is looking at all other options too, even hosting an open call in Burbank on April 18 for the gig. 

Our sources say they're not planning on changing much, just updating things a bit. The new host will be wearing the signature green striped polo shirt and khaki pants that previous hosts wore, but likely without pleats in the pants.

As for why the show's coming back after all these years, we're told producers feel like they can connect with their old audience again, many of whom are starting to have kids of their own. As for dream celebrity guests for the revival, we're told they wouldn't turn down Chrissy Teigen, John Legend and their daughter, Luna.

'RHONY' Star Sonja Morgan Whoops!! My Gown's Going Down ... But Show Goes On!!!

3/9/2018 8:45 AM PST

'Real Housewife of New York' star Sonja Morgan turned a cabaret revue into a full-on burlesque strip tease when her wrap dress unraveled in front of a packed crowd.

Sonja was dancing backup Thursday night for fellow 'Housewife' Luann de Lesseps during her #CountessAndFriends cabaret in NYC. Sonja was putting down some serious white girl dancing, and seemed like a seasoned, fearless performer. Maybe too fearless.

The dress came undone, her girls came popping out, and through it all ... Sonja did not skip a beat. 

Best of all ... Luann was singing her hit, "Money Can't Buy You Class" when the wardrobe malfunction happened. Awesome timing.

The Obamas Next Up for Us ... Netflix?!

3/8/2018 6:49 PM PST
Breaking News

Barack and Michelle Obama are reportedly saying screw politics and are joining an increasingly popular trend -- getting their own show on Netflix!

The 44th President and former First Lady are in talks with the streaming service to "produce a series of high-profile shows" and provide exclusive content on a global level ... according to the NY Times.

The focus of the shows will apparently be on highlighting inspirational stories, but there are other ideas as well. One is having Barack moderate conversations about topics that dominated his time in the White House ... like health care and climate change.

The terms of the deal are reportedly in advanced stages, but one thing seems clear -- the Obamas' content will not be used to bash President Trump or their critics.

That might be a bummer for a large portion of Neflix's 118 million subscribers.

O.J. Simpson I Met Nicole While I Was Still Married

3/9/2018 12:50 AM PST

O.J. Simpson was still married when he first laid eyes on Nicole Brown Simpson, but that didn't stop him from pursuing her and asking her out.

TMZ has obtained an exclusive clip from O.J.'s upcoming two hour sit-down on FOX where he says he met Nicole while she was working at a restaurant called The Daisy. 

The Juice didn't get her digits the first time but, as they say, second time's the charm, and plus he had some help.

O.J. says he had to explain to Nicole he was still technically a married man, although it sounds like he was already separated from first wife, Marguerite Whitley. Their marriage ended in 1979. 

The special "O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession?" airs this Sunday at 8 PM.

Richard Pryor's Son 'Apollo' Fail Won't Stop Me!!! And There's a Silver Lining

3/8/2018 3:05 PM PST

Mason Pryor says he knew pretty quickly his first major stand-up gig was not going to end well, but he's chalking it up to a lesson in comedy.

Richard Pryor's youngest son told us Thursday about totally bombing his set on "Showtime at the Apollo," and what's amazing is ... he's staying super positive.

Mason says while he's opened for Eddie Griffin before, this was his first televised performance, and he knows he's got a lot of work to do before the next one.

On the bright side, Mason says several comedians have reached out to tell him to stick with it -- he's not the first to bomb at The Apollo -- and at the very least ... he's now made his OWN name for himself!

We still don't know if the Sandman ushered Mason off the Apollo stage. His full performance airs Thursday night on FOX ... that is, if you want more.

Oprah to Gwyneth Paltrow Famous Faces Like Yours Sparked #MeToo Movement After Weinstein

3/8/2018 12:13 PM PST

Oprah believes the #MeToo movement launched with vigor once Harvey Weinstein went down, because it proved sexual misconduct happens to famous women, too.

O was the special guest on Gwyneth Paltrow's debut episode of her "Goop" podcast Thursday, and discussed how the allegations against Weinstein resonated with so many women ... and why it gave them the confidence to speak up.

She also explains how the moment had been coming and coming in the wake of scandals with Bill Cosby, Bill O'Reilly and President Trump's infamous "Access Hollywood" tape ... and finally boiled over with Weinstein.

As we reported ... Paltrow was among some of the first celebrity women to accuse Weinstein of past misconduct, along with Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd, Rosanna Arquette, Rose McGowan and many more.

Teri Hatcher Definitely Not Broke or Homeless ... It's My New Show!!!

3/8/2018 9:20 AM PST

Teri Hatcher's setting the record straight -- she's NOT broke or homeless, and she says anyone claiming that just isn't doing their homework.

Teri joined Sam Rubin on the "KTLA 5 Morning News" all the way from London to address a cover story recently published in Star Magazine ... claiming Teri's desperate, broke, homeless and living out of her van.

The "Desperate Housewives" star says that could NOT be further from the truth. Teri calls the story absurd and says the pictures the magazine published were actually just her filming her YouTube series, "Van Therapy" ... in which she drives around in her Bay Window Volkswagen Bus.

Teri -- who has owned the van for many years -- is now talking lawsuit.

Ed Westwick Stylist Claims She was a Sex Slave ... And Hollywood Turned Against Her

3/8/2018 6:31 AM PST

Ed Westwick is at the center of a lawsuit -- though not named as a defendant -- by a woman claiming he held her hostage as a sex slave for 48 hours. Sources connected with Westwick tell TMZ the woman is delusional and was trying to get her story out in the media but couldn't because media outlets determined she was lying. 

Haley Camille Freedman claims in a new lawsuit she went to Westwick's home in 2014 with a group of people and hung out for a while until everyone left but her. She says she and Westwick began having sex, but then things turned dark when he asked her to strangle him, slap him and spit on him.  She says, when she refused, he did those things to her.

She claims after the encounter she fell asleep and stayed the night and in the morning she was taking a shower when she says Westwick entered the shower and became sexual with her again, against her will.  

Freedman claims in the lawsuit she was out of it and ended up staying for 2 days. She says she was stranded at his L.A. home, didn't know where she was and didn't have cell service. She claims he told her he would drive her to her car, but delayed so he could continue having sex with her. She says she suffered bruising, bleeding and internal tears.

She is NOT suing Westwick. Freedman, an aspiring stylist, is going after former business partners whom she says cut her off because she wanted to go public with the allegations. She says she did an interview with a media outlet about her allegations but Westwick's team killed it. She says the media outlet got text messages that she says misrepresented her as "unstable, disturbed, jealous and promiscuous."

She also says Westwick threatened to sue her, claiming he had proof she was lying because he had relatives in town visiting his house at the time she claims she was being held captive.
