President Trump Blasts Oprah's '60 Minutes' Report ... Hopes She Runs for Prez

2/19/2018 6:32 AM PST
Breaking News

President Trump is ripping Oprah the journalist -- for her report on his first year in office -- but says he's looking forward to defeating Oprah the candidate.

Trump, apparently, changed the channel on his TV Sunday night just long enough to catch Oprah on "60 Minutes" doing a round table discussion with Michigan voters -- pro and anti-Trump. He wasn't impressed, and dismissed Oprah, who he used to know very well, as "insecure" ... and claimed her "questions were biased and slanted."

Trump added he hopes "Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated." Guessing he hasn't heard Oprah declare repeatedly that she's NOT running for Prez.

As for Oprah's report ... Trump's supporters definitely had their say. Maybe he didn't watch long enough. 

Happy President's Day!

2/19/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios has finally found her Hunny and it's not in DeMario Jackson, despite the two spending Valentine's Day together. 

We're told the "Bachelor in Paradise" star just got a new mini-Pomeranian pup, which she's named Hunny. Corinne got the pooch 2 weeks ago after plopping down a couple of G's.

Corinne already has a chow named Mookie, but wanted Mookie to have a companion since she's working a lot and often not home. 

Hunny was flown in from Tokyo, where the mini-Pom breeder is based. The two pooches look an awful lot alike, apart from the obvious size difference ...  they're already getting along just swimmingly.

As for DeMario, he ain't in the dog house. We're told the two are still "just friends." 

Rebecca Gayheart Files for Divorce from Eric Dane

2/16/2018 4:36 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart are getting divorced after 14 years of marriage ... TMZ has learned.

Rebecca, who starred in "Beverly Hills, 90210" filed legal docs Friday afternoon. Rebecca is asking for spousal support, as well as joint legal and physical custody. The couple has 2 daughters, ages 6 and 7.

Rebecca has been through a lot over the years. Back in 2001, she was driving and allegedly talking on her cellphone when she struck and killed a 9-year-old. She pled no contest to vehicular manslaughter and was sentenced to 3 years probation.

Eric, who starred in "Grey's Anatomy," and Rebecca were caught up in a scandal back in 2009 when Gawker released a sex tape of them having a threesome in a bathtub with another woman.

Jaden Smith I Go Shirtless for Nature, Man!!!

2/16/2018 3:14 PM PST

Jaden Smith doesn't just give back to his community -- he goes topless to give back, and makes it look good ... as his pops once put it.

We're guessing Will and Jada Pinkett Smith are pretty proud of Jaden and his sister, Willow, after they put time and labor into planting trees at Laurel Canyon Park in L.A. Friday afternoon. The famous sibs were with a group of friends helping to spruce up the 'hood.

Of course, Jaden appeared to be the only one doing it shirtless. It was also apparent that no one was complaining about his abs being on display. 

We last saw the Smith kids hanging out together while they were vacationing in Hawaii. No blood, sweat and tears that time around ... just doing their best to catch rad waves.

Stan Lee Face-Off with Ex-Bodyguard Cops Called to L.A. Home

2/16/2018 10:44 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Stan Lee's house was swarmed by cops Thursday after a man allegedly refused to leave his property. 

Law enforcement sources tell us they were called to the Marvel founder's L.A. home after a former bodyguard of Lee's showed up. We're told both Lee and his daughter asked Max Anderson -- a convicted felon -- to leave, and when he refused, they called police to intervene.

Our sources say reps from adult protective services were also called. Once officers arrived they spoke to Anderson, and we're told he agreed to leave peacefully. 

Stan has had a rough past few weeks ... he was taken to the hospital earlier this month for heart trouble and cops are investigating the unauthorized purchase of an $850k condo made in Stan's name.

On the bright side ... "Black Panther," which he co-created, is already killing it at the box office. 

In response to Thursday's incident, we're told Stan has hired private security to watch his property 24/7 to prevent any more intruders.

No, he's not hiring King T'Challa to watch his back.

Omar Epps Sued by 'Shooter' Actress ... He Went Off Script and Broke My Arm!!!

2/15/2018 6:48 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Omar Epps improvised an action scene with a much older actress, and ended up sending her to the hospital ... according to a new suit filed by the actress.

Donzaleigh Abernathy claims she was filming a scene with Epps in May 2016 for the USA show "Shooter" where his character was supposed to murder her character, when he "completely deviated from the script" and "threw his left forearm with full force at [her] right arm," and broke it.

Abernathy says she was 59 at the time, and claims a much younger and stronger Epps was negligent and reckless in his handling of her during the scene. According to the docs ... along with breaking her arm, he also dropped her hard on the floor and injured her back. She claims production was stopped and she was rushed to the hospital.

Abernathy is suing Epps, along with Paramount Pictures, for negligence and assault and battery. She's asking for damages for her pain and suffering and wants her medical costs -- present and future -- covered.

2/15/2018 2:52 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

'Amazing Race' couple Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf have been through a lot together -- in the public eye -- and now they can add getting engaged to the list.

We got this video of Cody proposing to Jessica at the top of Runyon Canyon Park's hiking trail in L.A. Tuesday ... and there were no shortage of tears flowing when she said yes.

We're told Cody ran ahead of her to make it a surprise, and told the group of people in the area his plan ... which is how he had a nice cheering section. Quality move.

You may recall ... Cody and Jessica met on last season of "Big Brother" and became one of its showmances, but not without controversy. Cody was portrayed as a villain on the show, and Jessica was slammed for unwanted butt-poking of other houseguests.

The 2 always stuck together, though ... and now it appears that's their goal for life.

Congrats!

Nicole Eggert Even IF I Was 18 ... Baio Was Too Old for Sex with Me!

2/15/2018 2:28 PM PST

Nicole Eggert's got new beef with Scott Baio -- now she's essentially claiming he's a dirty old man.

Nicole was on "Good Day LA" Thursday when she was asked about Scott insisting she was 18 when they had sex. Her response -- "Let's say that were true. That still made him how old?"

The answer to her question is Scott would have been 29 or 30 ... clearly, too old in Nicole's eyes. She also insinuated Scott's guilty of just being creepy because she thinks, if nothing else, he thought about having sex with her before she was legal.

Eggert has previously said she thinks she was as young as 14 when she and Scott first hooked up. As we've reported ... he denies any sexual contact with Nicole while she was underage.

Jeffrey Tambor Amazon Honchos Say ... You Can't Quit, We're Firing You!!!

2/15/2018 12:59 PM PST
Breaking News

5:45 PM PT -- Tambor's responded, saying he's disappointed in the handling of these "false accusations" against him by Amazon and more so Soloway, and claims in his 4 years of working with her on "Transparent," the accusations were never revealed to him or discussed directly. He says he will continue to vehemently defend himself.

He adds ... "I can only surmise that the investigation against me was deeply flawed and biased toward the toxic politicized atmosphere that afflicted our set." He also says the "biggest heartbreak" is that the show is now in jeopardy.Jeffrey Tambor is officially off his award-winning show, "Transparent" -- Amazon Studios announced the firing after investigating the sexual harassment allegations against him.

Amazon didn't release the results of its internal investigation, but easy to read between the lines ... since they canned their star. Tambor had previously claimed he was quitting the show after his former assistant and a co-star accused him. He later backed off that, but it's a moot point now.

"Transparent" showrunner Jill Soloway said, "We are taking definitive action to ensure our workplace respects the safety and dignity of every individual, and are staking steps to heal as family."

Sounds like the investigation results were all bad for Tambor -- and it also seems the show will go on without him.

Scott Baio Threatens to Sue Eggert, Polinsky and Bloom

2/14/2018 1:40 PM PST

Scott Baio has threatened to sue Nicole Eggert, Alexander Polinsky, Lisa Bloom and anyone else he claims has defamed him with false allegations of sexual abuse and harassment.

Scott's rep, Brian Glicklich, says Scott denies every single claim made against him. During the news conference, Glicklich and Scott's lawyer, Jennifer McGrath, said Eggert and Polinsky have had "ever-changing stories" and point to an interview Eggert did where she said, "I would love to work with him [Scott] again and am friends with his wife."

They went on to say Nicole has a track record of making false claims. As for Eggert's demand for an apology, they say Scott will not apologize for things he never did.

Glicklich called this a "media witch hunt" by people "hungry for publicity."

As for Polinsky's claim that he was sexually harassed and even physically assaulted on the set when he was 11 and 12, Baio's team says there were hundreds of people on the set yet no one reported any act of abuse.

And Baio's reps called BS on Polinsky for saying he was not ready to take a call from Scott a decade ago where Scott was going to apologize, and they pointed to photos of the 2 of them with their arms around each other 7 years ago at Scott's birthday party.

They also speculated Eggert's motivation for making her allegations is that she is no longer on TV and relevant. 

'American Horror Story' Video Shows Fans Out of Control ... Murder House Owners Say

2/14/2018 1:47 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The current owners of the Murder House from "American Horror Story" say these videos and photos of fans swarming around their home show exactly why they're suing the previous owner.

The videos are pretty insane -- some fans climbed into a dumpster as it was raised by a garbage truck ... just to get a peek over the fence! Another fan seemed to nap in the front yard, while another chilled right on the porch.

As we reported, Ernst Von Schwarz and Angela Oakenfold are suing the home's previous owner, claiming they were never told the house was on 'AHS,' and has become a "macabre tourist attraction." Even when fans aren't trespassing, they're lined up by the dozens outside the chain link fence. 

Schwarz and Oakenfold -- who paid $3.2 million for the mansion in 2014 -- were on "TMZ Live" Wednesday. They wanted to make it clear they don't hate 'AHS' fans, but some go too far, and make them feel unsafe at home.

Scott Baio, Nicole Eggert At War In Dueling News Conferences

2/14/2018 7:01 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nicole Eggert's co-star, Alexander Polinsky, will hold a news conference today addressing what his lawyer, Lisa Bloom, calls "the sexual harassment abuse he alleges against the actor Scott Baio," and Baio's team is declaring all-out war, saying they will expose Eggert, Polinsky and Bloom as "sleaze mongers."

Bloom's news conference is scheduled for 9:30 AM PT. It's unclear why Polinsky has lawyered up ... whether he has a claim against Baio. The press release has been interpreted by some outlets as Polinsky alleging sexual abuse, but that seems to be a leap because, as we reported, he met with LAPD detectives last week to describe alleged abuse he witnessed.

As for Baio ... his news conference is scheduled for 2 PM PT at his lawyer's office. His spokesperson, Brian Glicklich, tells TMZ, "Nicole Eggert, Alexander Polinsky and their attorney have brought a media circus to town, complete with false allegations, misleading insinuations, and pure sleaze mongering. If they wish to have a public conversation about their histories and motives, it will present a very different picture of why they are making these allegations."

We don't know if Baio will be at his lawyer's news conference. 

TMZ will be live streaming both news conferences. 

LaVar Ball Butchers Nas Song ... On 'Lip Sync Battle'

2/14/2018 8:35 AM PST
Breaking News

Oh man ... this is painful. 

LaVar Ball took the mic on "Lip Sync Battle" and decided to do his biggest, ballerest version of the Nas classic, "Hate Me Now" ... and yeah, everyone hates him now.

Including his son, Lonzo Ball.

The Balls competed against each other on the show (airs Thursday) -- Lonzo did "Band and Boujee" by Migos, accompanied by a bunch of twerking girl dancers.

When LaVar got his shot, he tried really hard -- but it became very obvious he didn't really know the words and just sorta jumped around and mouthed a bunch of incorrect lyrics.

Afterward, Lonzo told his dad ... "If I was Nas I'd be mad he put on a performance like that on my song. I'd be mad."

Guessing this ain't gonna help the beef between 'Zo and the NY rap star.
