Alonzo Bodden, Ron White We Wouldn't Touch Correspondents' Dinner With a 10-Foot Pole

2/22/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Alonzo Bodden would NOT emcee the White House Correspondents' Dinner because he thinks it's a comedian's death sentence.

The 3rd season winner of "Last Comic Standing" admits the exposure would be great, but he would lose his African-American and Hispanic audience.

It's interesting ... he thinks the administration just can't take a joke, and that would suck the funny out of the room.

Ron White also says he'd pass on emceeing the dinner, but for a different reason ... he thinks roasting Trump is just sophomoric comedy for 3rd graders. He also has Aretha issues ... as in R-E-S-P-E-C-T for the office of president.

Milo Ventimiglia Joins Mysterious Cast

2/22/2017 7:26 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Milo Ventimiglia dies on his show, "This Is Us," although we don't know how ... we also don't know how he broke his arm.

We got the Pearsons' flashback father Tuesday night in NYC, where he was swarmed by fans wanting his John Hancock, but that presented a special problem, because of some busted bones.

Milo's mum on the subject, but he made one thing clear ... he loves those who clearly love him.

Josh McDermitt Walking Deadpan ... On 'Stranger Things' Run-In

2/21/2017 4:43 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Josh McDermitt can neither confirm nor deny whether he'll be in season 2 of "Stranger Things" ... but does have a funny way of explaining his run-in with the kid stars.

We got the 'Walking Dead' actor Tuesday at LAX, where our camera guy grilled McDermitt about a pic he posted Monday with 3 of the boys from the Netflix show ... with hashtags like #CrossoverEpisode fueling rumors he'll star in the upcoming season.

Like Josh says ... he can't talk about that. But he's happy to deadpan his way through their meetup in Portland.

Keshia Knight Pulliam's Ex Judge, I Am the Father! But Don't Make Me Pay Yet

2/21/2017 11:11 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-keisha-knight-pulliam-ed-hartwell-tmz-getty-02Keshia Knight Pulliam's ex has finally copped to being her baby daddy ... but he doesn't want to start paying for their kid just yet.

Ed Hartwell filed new docs in his pending divorce from the former TV star, and admits he's their newborn daughter's dad ... as results from his long-awaited paternity test proved.

Here's the thing though ... Ed says he shouldn't have to start shelling out dough yet -- at least not until a court decides exactly how much he should pay in child support.

In the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Ed says he's not buying Keshia's claim she needs emergency financial support, because they both have deep pockets. Plus, he says she's not considering his own expenses in setting up a nursery for the kid at his place.

Ronda Rousey RETURNS TO ACTING ... Guest Role On 'Blindspot'

2/21/2017 11:18 AM PST
Breaking News

0221-ronda-rousey-blind-spot-TMZ-01Ronda Rousey's back ... to acting! 

The UFC legend scored herself a guest role on the hit NBC show "Blindspot" -- where she'll play a tough prison inmate who's serving time for transporting weapons across state lines. 

A rep for the show tells TMZ Sports the episode is scheduled to air in early May.

We're told her episode has NOT been shot yet but will be done in the near future. So, no, this didn't clash with her training for the Amanda Nunes fight. 

Ronda has not made an official decision on whether she'll fight again -- but most people think she's likely done after losing her last 2 fights.

This is a big deal for Ronda -- if she crushes the "Blindspot" gig, it could lead to bigger and better things outside the Octagon.

Alex Trebek Drops Bars on 'Jeopardy!' I'll Take 'Let's Rap' For $200

2/21/2017 8:51 AM PST

It's debatable, but Alex Trebek might've just announced the best "Jeopardy!" category of his career ... at the expense of Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne and Kanye West.

The category was "Let's Rap, Kids" and Trebek had to repeat lyrics from the rappers' hits. It's hilarious ... especially when he had to drop Desiigner's banger, "Panda."

Alex even gets in a Kanye jab too. New rap beef brewing? Trebek's diss track would kill.

TV Actors Sinkhole Victims We Fought for Our Lives

2/21/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Two actors drove smack into the L.A. sinkhole that made national news Friday, and they escaped from their car that got swallowed up in the raging storm.

"30 Rock" star Bobb'e J. Thompson and "Lincoln Heights" star Zachary Williams were in 1 of the 2 vehicles swallowed up by a 20-foot sinkhole that ended up closing Laurel Canyon, which connects Hollywood with the San Fernando Valley.

Zachary -- who was behind the wheel of his mom's Honda Odyssey -- says the earth literally moved under their feet, as the back tire hit the growing hole in the road ... disabling it. They scrambled to safety as they watched the Honda disappear into hole filled with rainwater.

They jumped into Good Samaritan mode as they saw a woman in another car who was trapped as it plunged into the sinkhole. They summoned cops, who then were able to save her.

'The Bachelor' Nick and Raven get Down and Dirty

2/20/2017 6:20 PM PST

It's time on "The Bachelor" for Nick Viall to head to the hometowns of the final 4 girls -- the first stop was Raven's crib down south ... and it didn't take long to get real sloppy.

The couple raced through a swamp on ATVs and got stuck ... the perfect excuse for Nick to lose his filthy shirt and make out with her.

Sometimes you gotta go muddin' to find true lovin'.

'Flip or Flop' Star Tarek El Moussa Now I Clean and Sell Houses ... Alone

2/18/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0217-main-tarek-associates-tmz-05"Flip or Flop" star Tarek El Moussa's the only pretty mug you'll see on the flyer pimping his real estate biz ... Christina's apparently been kicked to the curb.

TMZ got its webbed hands on Tarek's ad that started circulating in the O.C. ... and he's flying solo. Tarek's now with Sotheby's ... and she's clearly not.

It's a big departure from they way they created their brand ... sort of like Sonny and Cher.

Tarek and Christina are putting on happy faces while they film their TV show ..but off-screen it's now The Sonny Show.

MLB Stars Get Iconic 'Walking Dead' Weapon Meet Lucille

2/17/2017 3:31 PM PST

ZOMBIES, BEWARE ... a couple of MLB stars just got some heavy-duty undead killing weaponry in the form of Lucille, the iconic barbed wire covered baseball bat from "The Walking Dead."

BTW -- if you don't watch 'TWD' (which you should), Lucille is wielded by the ultimate scumbag/badass Negan ... and was used in one of the most brutal scenes in television history earlier this season.

That brutality didn't stop J.D. Martinez of the Tigers and Yasiel Puig of the Dodgers from fanning out when replicas of Lucille were delivered to their team's spring training earlier Friday, courtesy of the show's production.

R.I.P. to Glenn and Abraham.

'SNL's' Hillary Clinton Does Her Homework With Real Deal HRC

2/17/2017 7:16 AM PST

0217-clinton-mckinnon-facebook-2Expect a Hillary Clinton sighting on 'SNL' this week, or at least Kate McKinnon as Hillary, after they did dinner together in NYC. 

'SNL' superstar McKinnon was spotted doing dinner Wednesday night at Orso ... no doubt having some laughs about the current political environment.

As bad as the election turned out for the real Hillary -- it's been ratings gold for Kate and her castmates.

Who picked up the tab? It better be Lorne Michaels or NBC.

Rosie O'Donnell No Steve Bannon Role for Me On 'SNL'

2/17/2017 6:27 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Anyone hoping to see Rosie O'Donnell play Steve Bannon on "Saturday Night Live" better write to their congressman ... Lorne Michaels

We got Rosie leaving Nobu in West Hollywood Thursday night and she told us her uncanny photoshop of Bannon is as far as she'll be taking the role.

Why? Sounds like the idea failed to launch with 'SNL' honchos. We'll always have this ...

Nick Cannon TV Never Meant That Much to Me ... It's All Yours, Seacrest!

2/16/2017 2:03 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Cannon isn't fretting about his decision to walk away from $4.5 mil a year as the host of "America's Got Talent" ... because his head was never really in TV.

We got Nick at a high school in the Bronx with members of NYC's Black Lives Matter ... a much bigger priority for him than the boob tube.

As for who should replace him on 'AGT,' ... why the white Nick Cannon, of course.
