0312-colton-haynes-engaged-03

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. 

The "Teen Wolf" star came out publicly last year. It seems he started dating the celeb florist fairly recently.

Congrats!

Brandon Mychal Smith Tapped for 'AGT' After Marlon Wayans Negotiations Fizzle

3/8/2017 4:31 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0308-brandon-smith-marlon-wayans-tmz-2Brandon 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.

Darius McCrary Rambling, Erratic Rant Against Wife ... It's Fame Whoring 101!

3/8/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

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.

As we reported, Darius got a restraining order against Tammy claiming SHE actually attacked HIM.

As for his current job on the FOX drama, "Star" -- Darius hints executive producer Lee Daniels has his back through this ordeal.

'The Bachelor' Nick Decides Rachel's Fate

3/6/2017 6:52 PM PST

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.

It's all good though ... now it's her turn to have the pick of the litter.

Nick Cannon Why All the 'AGT' Replacements Black?!!?

3/6/2017 6:38 AM PST

Nick Cannon quit 'AGT' because he felt the show didn't really want a black host ... which may be why he's baffled that the 3 finalists for his replacement are all black.

We got the former 'AGT' frontman Sunday night at Craig's, and he gave us his choice ... although we think he's kidding.

TMZ broke the story ... the final 3 are Marlon Wayans, Brandon Mychal Smith and Tone Bell.

Tarek & Christina El Moussa No Dough Off 'Flip or Flop' Spin-Offs ... We're Just Hired Help!

3/6/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0303-tarek-christina-el-moussa-hgtv"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.

Nothing like healthy competition.

'America's Got Talent' Marlon Wayans Among Top 3 Host Replacements

3/5/2017 11:04 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0305-agt-replacement-01Simon 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.
