Colton Haynes just got engaged ... and the proposal was explosive, especially when Cher made a cameo.
Colton just posted a pic of him and fiance Jeff Leatham with the caption "I SAID YES!!!"
The proposal went down in Las Ventanas al Paraiso in Mexico, and Jeff clearly went all out. Waterfront movie, candles ... the works. Fireworks, that is. He even got Cher to sing Colton a line from her hit single "I Got You Babe." Unclear if she sang the whole thing -- but either way ... we're impressed.
"Blue's Clues" ended it's run more than 10 years ago, but the host of that wildly popular kids' show is cranking out catchy kid's tunes again ... and now he's got a famous partner.
Steve Burns told us all about his his new Steve-n-steveN project with the Flaming Lips' Steven Drozd. The duo recently released "OK Toilet Bowl" -- super catchy, btw -- and he says they've got even more kid friendly tunes coming.
While "Blue's Clues" isn't coming back ... Steve did have one awesome piece of nostalgia from the show. "Think" hard, and it'll come to you. Or just watch the clip.
The actors playing the rap giants were on set this week in L.A. for the first day of taping "Unsolved" -- a USA Network show about the investigations into both their deaths. Newcomer Wavyy Jonez is playing Big and Marcc Rose is Pac ... same role he played in "Straight Outta Compton."
Well timed by producers, with Thursday being the 20th anniversary of Biggie's shooting and death.
Bell Biv DeVoe and Lady Antebellum have a serious connection, and they're taking it to the studio ... according to BBD's Ricky Bell.
We got Bell at LAX -- fresh off BBD's killer mashup with LA on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" -- and he was still buzzing about the performance. So much so, he says both groups are planning to keep the party going.
He says they already have the perfect name for their supergroup, but there's just one detail left to hammer out.
Brandon Mychal Smith is all but signed to be the next host of "America's Got Talent" ... this after negotiations with Marlon Wayans fell apart over money.
Multiple sources connected with the show tell TMZ, the deal is not done but it will happen soon, possibly in the next day.
We're told Marlon was first choice ... in no small part because he's a major name and has a history with the show as a guest judge. Our sources say reps for both sides went back and forth several days ago but Marlon wanted more than the network was willing to pay.
Brandon -- who's hysterical as a rapper on "You're the Worst" -- will cost way less, but one source said the other advantage is that he will become part of the show in a more seamless way than Marlon, who has an extremely strong brand independent of the show.
One source warns these deals sometimes fall apart at the very end, but it looks like Brandon will get the gig.
As we reported, Nick Cannon quit the show after a dispute with NBC. Nick groused he was reined in and the network tried to homogenize him.
Former "Family Matters" star Darius McCrary took a page out of his pal Charlie Sheen's playbook, and unleashed a rant against his estranged wife, who's accused him of abusing her, their child ... and drugs.
Darius was leaving a vapor lounge in the San Fernando Valley Tuesday, when we asked him about Tammy Brawner's claim he held their little girl over boiling water. Darius thinks she's out for fame -- but beyond that, it's hard to keep up with his rambling response to the allegations he's a bad dad.
After 3 more solo dates and a whole lotta private time with Raven, Rachel and Vanessa, it was finally time for Nick Viall to narrow it down to the final 2 on "The Bachelor" ... and it was between Rachel and Vanessa for rose #2.
Rachel Lindsay's already been named the next 'Bachelorette' so it shouldn't come as a huge shock that she's going home. Still, as a fan favorite and the first black woman to make it this far ... this one stings.
"Flip or Flop" stars Tarek and Christina El Moussa paved the way for 5 new spin-off shows, but they won't make a dime if they become ratings hits.
Sources close to production say HGTV told the El Moussas a year ago they planned to spread the franchise to other cities. We're told execs did it as a courtesy to the couple -- they are the OGs, after all -- but they didn't really have a say.
We're told they were fully aware there would be no bonus in their stockings for the expansion.
Our sources say there's no truth to reports the spin-offs are intended to phase out Christina and Tarek -- and execs think the new shows could make their brand stronger.
Simon Cowell has whittled down his pick for a new host on "America's Got Talent" to just 3 guys -- one of whom is Marlon Wayans ... TMZ has learned.
Production sources tell us 'AGT' brass is zeroing on Wayans and 2 other comedians to replace Nick Cannon. The other guys are Tone Bell and Brandon Mychal Smith.
Wayans is obviously the big name here ... but we're told the 2 others have just as much of a chance to land the new gig considering their acting and comedy chops.
Bell is a stand-up and actor who's worked on shows like "The Flash," "Truth Be Told," "Chelsea Lately," and "Key and Peele." He's also made appearances on "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" and "Comedy Knockout."
Brandon Mychal Smith is a straight up Disney kid, who starred in shows like "That's So Raven," "So Random!" and Disney movies "Starstruck" and "Let It Shine." He also played Little Richard in the James Brown biopic "Get On Up."
And of course, there's Wayans -- who's been in TONS of movies and shows. He's even got NBC hosting experience for their show "I Can Do That" ... so he might have this in the bag.
We're told Simon still needs to meet with the 3 prospects to really see who'd be a good fit. He could even scrap them altogether, but for now ... these are his top options.
