'Gotham' Child Star

Young Catwoman

Gettin' Paid Purr-Dy Penny

5/3/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0501-camren-bicondova-instagram"Gotham" actress Camren Bicondova is laughing all the way to the piggy bank ... the 15-year-old is making a fortune as Selina Kyle.

According to her contract which was filed with the court, Camren makes $17,500 per episode while providing a little eye-opening insight into Catwoman's past. And that's just for the first season.

If the show makes it seven seasons, she'll rake in $20,477 an episode  ... not bad for someone who was a runner-up on "America's Best Dance Crew."

She's made a grand total of $385k for Season 1. That's impressive, but dwarfed by Michelle Pfeiffer, who pulled in $3 mil for her cat lady role while Halle Berry snagged $14 mil.

Val got handsy with Artem during Friday's rehearsal to punctuate his point.

'Walking Dead' Star

I Regret NYC Subway Rant

5/2/2015 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"Walking Dead" star Chad L. Coleman regrets causing a scene on a NYC subway Friday, but stands by his message.

Coleman tells us, he had a lot of "built up frustration" because of the Baltimore situation and just lost it when someone on the train used the "n" word in referring to him.  The guy's friend said she recognized Coleman, and he responded by saying, "No, we don't know that n*****."

Coleman insists he was not drunk during the rant, but adds he's not proud he couldn't control his emotions.  

And the actor wanted to apologize to cast members of "The Walking Dead" and his family.

You see passengers recoil and eventually the seats around him are empty.

We spoke with Coleman, who told us he heard a guy and a girl on the train talking, trying to figure out where they knew him. He says the guy told the girl, "No, we don't know that n*****," and that set him off.

As for the screams about humanity, he says he was referencing the problems in Baltimore.

He says he was sober on the train.

Hilary Duff

I've Got Cameras

... On All My Tinder Dates

5/1/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0430_hilary-duff-tinder-compositeHilary Duff is the next 'Bachelorette' ... of Tinder -- she's shooting footage of all her dates setup through the app ... and there's a chance it could turn into a reality show. 

Hilary recently copped to right swiping a bunch of guys on Tinder -- 9 at last count -- and even went on a first date this week with one of them. Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ ... cameras were rolling during the date at a bowling alley.

We're told Hilary plans to shoot more footage as she dives into the dating world ... and hopes to use it to develop a reality show -- that would focus on her life as a new divorcée. Think 'Stella' getting her groove back ... but whiter.

Hilary's rep had no comment about a potential reality show.

Our sources say Hil had a 2nd date Wednesday night -- hitting up a pizza place in the valley, and once again recording the festivities. But after dinner she and the guy grabbed a drink at a bar ... sans camera. Girl needs room to work it.

EXCLUSIVE

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Yung Joc just learned a hard lesson ... speeding can open Pandora's Box and land you in jail.

Law enforcement sources tell us the rapper was pulled over by Atlanta PD Thursday for speeding. Cops ran his license and discovered it was suspended. But that wasn't all.

YJ has a warrant out for his arrest. We don't know the nature of the warrant, but it doesn't matter much. The rapper was cuffed and taken to the cop shop for a not-so-pretty mug. He's still in custody. 

You may recall... Joc recently battled his baby mama to prevent her from airing his dirty laundry on an upcoming project called "Baby Mamas Atlanta, Virginia, Denver & Los Angeles."

More laundry in the hamper.

'The Wire' Star Anwan Glover

Rioters Disrespect Freddie Gray's Name

'We're Not Thugs'

4/29/2015 4:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Count Anwan Glover from "The Wire" among those who feel the rioting and looting in Baltimore is doing disservice to the memory of Freddie Gray, whose death while in police custody triggered the protests.

Glover -- who played Slim Charles in the iconic HBO series set in Baltimore -- said he believes President Obama needs to become even more involved than he has been, to provide leadership for the city.

He also says if Slim were in Baltimore right now, he'd be using his "power in the street" to organize the youth and put a stop to the violence. 

Slim did have a way with words ... 

Brittney Griner & Fiancee

Recruited By 'Couples Therapy'

... You Need Serious Help

4/29/2015 4:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The host of VH1's "Couples Therapy" says she desperately wants to get WNBA star Brittney Griner and her fiancee Glory Johnson on the show ... telling TMZ Sports they "need a hell of a lot of work."

Both Brittney and Glory were arrested last week for attacking each other in their AZ home -- and Dr. Jenn Berman says the show would be the perfect place for them to work out their issues before they tie the knot. 

Dr. Berman -- a former rape and domestic violence counselor -- also says domestic violence is a serious problem in the gay and lesbian community because they tend to hide it more often. 

"There's a lot of shame in the gay community when there is domestic violence because there is a kind of a sense of 'Hey, we've been fighting to be recognized as a couple and now we have this?!'"

Berman also offers the couple advice -- but says she could be most effective if Griner and Johnson agree to get her help in person ... on Season 6.
