Caitlyn Jenner

I Didn't Want to Look

Like a Guy in a Dress

6/2/2015 6:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Caitlyn Jenner did not want to look like a pretend woman when she transitioned from a man to a woman.

Caitlyn told Vanity Fair it was extremely important that she presented herself as feminine.

Beyond cosmetics, Caitlyn talks about the isolation she felt in the '80s, and how the Internet became her salvation because it provided a connection with people in similar circumstances.

And Caitlyn talks about her role models, many of whom are famous including Laverne Cox from "Orange Is the New Black." 

Jeffrey Tambor

Caitlyn Reveal is 'Miraculous'

EXCLUSIVE

Jeffrey Tambor, whose fictitious life parallels that of Bruce Jenner, is thrilled with the unveiling of Caitlyn.

Tambor, who plays a man in his 60s who becomes a woman in the show "Transparent," was leaving the Directors Guild of America Monday night when our photog asked him about the big reveal.

The actor was short on words, but strong on emotion, voicing big support for Caitlyn. 

Kim Richards

Kyle and Mauricio Won't Save You Anymore

EXCLUSIVE

0601_kim_richars_kyle_richards_Mauricio-Umansky_TMZKim Richards has just lost 2 of the most important people in her life, because we've learned her sister Kyle and husband Mauricio Umansky have washed their hands of her ... ironically, to save her.

Sources connected with the family tell TMZ, Kim stayed in Mexico after her daughter's wedding and was perpetually wasted. We're told in the last few days, Kyle and Mauricio had a security guard fly down to Cabo and literally force Kim onto an airplane where she returned home to L.A.

Our sources say Kim has promised to re-enter rehab, but it's not flying with Kyle and Mauricio. We're told they feel they have done what they can do to save Kim, and the only thing left is tough love.

So, Kim is no longer their problem. If she ends up on the streets, then that's what has to happen. We're told things are so bad, Kyle and Mauricio feel Kim is actually in danger of dying. But they believe the only hope is for her to realize they will not be her safety net to constantly bail her out.

Very sad.

Bruce Jenner

Call Me Caitlyn

First Photo as a Woman

It's the biggest reveal of 2015 for sure ... Bruce Jenner as a woman, and the pic is dramatic. 

The name's now Caitlyn. She posed for the cover of Vanity Fair's July issue and it was shot by famed celeb photographer Annie Leibovitz.

It's interesting the name is spelled with a C and not a K ... possibly a break from the Kardashian Klan.

In the Diane Sawyer interview Bruce made it clear he was saying farewell to his male persona. This pic is a full reveal of the transformation. 

Caitlyn just opened a Twitter account, saying, "I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can't wait for you to get to know her/me."

Check out the video, where Caitlyn models several outfits and seductively poses.

I Didn't Spell it with a 'K'

For Good Reason

EXCLUSIVE

Caitlyn Jenner did not spell her first name with a "K" because she wants a clean break from the Kardashian moniker ... TMZ has learned.  

Sources closely associated with Bruce tell us Caitlyn wants to make it clear to her family and the world ... she is her own person. That sounds obvious, but we're told it was an extremely meaningful choice for her ... she has never been her own person before, and becoming part of the Kardashian brood would undermine her goal.

Our sources say it's not that there's bad blood between Caitlyn and the Kardashians ... it's all about self-identity.

I Needed to Shock People

With Vanity Fair Cover

EXCLUSIVE

0601-bruce-jenner-vanity-fair-05Caitlyn Jenner did not want the world to see a demure version of herself ... she chose a sexy photo because once the shock wears off, people will be more accepting. 

Sources closely associated with Caitlyn tell TMZ, she gave a lot of thought to her first public image. She felt if she posed in something modest, like a dress, people would not be satisfied and the mystery would prevent her from leading any kind of a normal life. 

We're told Caitlyn chose an extremely sexy, revealing outfit because now that the public's curiosity is satisfied, it will not be a shock when she goes out in normal streetwear.

And our sources say Caitlyn plans to publicly circulate now that her true self is revealed. She was hiding for a long time until this moment, but now the decks are cleared.

Exclusive Details

0601-kim-k-splash-03Kim Kardashian will be giving birth this winter ... because TMZ has learned she is three months pregnant.

According to our sources, Kim conceived some time in March ... which means she should be popping out a little West in December.  

In Sunday night's "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," psychic John Edward told Kim he saw something with the number three, but wasn't sure what it meant. We're told Kim's a believer and thinks it means getting pregnant the third month of the year.

As for the mother-to-be, Kim was seen out Sunday afternoon in New York City.

BTW ... how awesome if they named the kid South West.

Tracy Morgan could not contain his emotions as he described the pain of the car accident that took his friend's life.

Morgan told Matt Lauer on "Today" ... it wasn't until he came out of a coma two weeks after the accident that he learned his friend, comedian James McNair, was killed in the crash.

Disney's Raven Goodwin

Booted From Waffle House

After Cat Fight

5/31/2015 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Disney star Raven Goodwin was ordered out of the Waffle House in Atlanta Saturday night after she got into a fight with another customer over her choice of table.

The 22-year-old "Good Luck Charlie" star was sitting at a table waiting for friends, but it looked like the people at the table next to her were about to leave so she asked to be moved there.

The people at the other table lingered, which apparently pissed Raven off.  We're told Raven ended up in the bathroom arguing with a woman who had been sitting at the desired table.   The woman called Raven a "fat bitch," and Raven fired back by telling her she was broke and need to go make some money.

The Waffle House staff sprung into action, jumping the counter and ordering both women to leave.

The Waffle House ... not always the happiest place on earth.

Dustin Diamond

Convicted in Stabbing Case

5/30/2015 7:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0530-dustin-diamond-getty-02Dustin Diamond was convicted Friday in the case where he stabbed a guy in a bar, but in a way it's really a victory for him.

Diamond was convicted of 2 misdemeanors but acquitted of the far more serious felonies.

1226-dustin-diamond-at-bar-fight-christmas-TMZ-02As TMZ reported, Diamond, who was with his girlfriend, stabbed a man in the Wisconsin bar last XMAS, but he claimed self defense. Diamond testified, "I felt like we were being set up for antagonistic purposes." The actor who famously played Screech claimed he was merely waiving a pocket knife around to fend off aggressors, never intending to stab anyone.

The guy he stabbed didn't even know he was cut until after he left the bar.

Diamond was convicted of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct.  Worst case scenario is a 9 month jail sentence. 

'Empire' Stars

Slay at The Grove

EXCLUSIVE

It was like one-stop shopping Friday night at The Grove ... you could get a soft pretzel, check out the creepy dolls at American Girl,  and watch a concert courtesy of the fine folks at "Empire."

Jussie Smollett, aka Jamal, Bryshere Gray, aka Hakeem, and others performed for the cheering crowd.  

Before the concert, the audience got to see an episode under the stars, and then got to ask the cast members questions.

The concert was pretty awesome ... sorry for the shaky camera, but it was pretty crazy.

90's kids rejoice, the cast of Nickelodeon's "Salute Your Shorts" is getting back together ... and Donkeylips himself told us all about it -- along with some far out conspiracy theories.

Michael Bower, who played ole DL ... told us the Camp Anawanna crew is meeting up in Portland, OR at a festival this weekend, and they're going to livestream some new material ... including a potentially wild hotel party.

But this clip is really about Bower and our photog doing a duet of the 'SYS' theme song! Well ... that and chemtrails.

Seriously, Donkeylips is about to blow your mind.
