Michael Buble Watch Me Punk This TMZ Photog!

5/5/2016 10:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Buble can add acting chops to his resume ... 'cause the beloved crooner pulled a cruel, cold-blooded and HYSTERICAL prank on one of our photogs!

We spotted the singer walking around Bev Hills, and asked him about fellow singer Josh Groban possibly replacing Michael Strahan on 'Live.' Buble was NOT in the mood to talk ... or so it appeared.

The video is so awesome ... it almost makes up for Buble's recent corn on the cob fiasco, which he tried to explain away to our guy.

The whole family's down there shooting their show -- and Khloe's BFF, Malika, snapped a pic of her embracing the architecture and culture.

This is NOT the revolution Fidel had in mind. Though he'd be stupid to complain.

Bryan was driving in Hollywood on Wednesday and says a lady driving a Jeep ran a red, causing him to veer.

The woman -- shockingly -- stuck around and she and Bryan exchanged info.

Bryan's feeling the pain today after suffering some bumps and bruises. The Vette wasn't so lucky. It's now a candidate for the junkyard.

Mark Burnett Sorry Donald ... I'm Set with Schwarzenegger

5/5/2016 6:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mark Burnett is a smart guy who knows all about a bird in the hand, which is why he's coyly telling our photog Arnold Schwarzenegger is the man for 'Celebrity Apprentice,' even if Donald Trump loses the election.

Mark was leaving Craig's in WeHo Wednesday, and without fully closing the door, he made it clear he's satisfied with Arnold. Word on the street is that Schwarzenegger's a great host, and the show's super entertaining.

He clearly harbors no ill will toward Trump, but was strangely silent about endorsing him.

Fact is ... this one ended up well for both Trump and Burnett.

We got Whoopi in SoHo Wednesday and she's definitely not definitive, but it sounds like she's satisfied with the gig.

The show needs her ... bad.

Eddie George To Kelly Ripa I'll Replace Strahan ... For Cheap!!

5/3/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Listen up, Kelly Ripa ... your on-air war with Michael Strahan could have a happy ending ... 'cause another NFL star says he's willing to take Strahan's spot in the host chair ... for a fraction of the price.

The NFL star is Eddie George -- whose career is on fire right now ... especially after crushing it as the lead role in the Broadway run of "Chicago The Musical." Plus, he's been doing TV work pretty consistently since leaving the NFL. 

So, when we got Eddie and his wife out in L.A., we asked if he'd be interested in taking Michael's place ... and putting an end to the most vicious celebrity beef since Big & Pac.

Long story short, Eddie's DOWN -- and says something that'll be music to the producer's ears ... I'M WAY CHEAPER!

Chris Paul Busts Sweet Ass Running Man ... In Lip Sync Performance

5/2/2016 7:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Paul is still trying to be the best in the world ... not at NBA basketball (Clippers are DONE) ... but at the running man.

CP3 is a contestant on Thursday's "Lip Sync Battle" and broke out the dance social media is obsessed with during a performance of New Edition's "Candy Girl."

It's definitely a more classic take on the move ... but if you watch closely at 17 seconds there is running ... and there is man.

Take that, Kyrie Irving.

'Trailer Park Boys' Star Battery Case Dropped

4/29/2016 2:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0429_Bubbles-from-Trailer-Park-Boys_gettyMichael Smith -- aka Bubbles from "Trailer Park Boys" -- just got a huge break from the L.A. City Attorney ... who rejected his domestic battery case due to insufficient evidence. 

We broke the story ... Bubbles was booked for misdemeanor domestic battery after witnesses told cops he choked a woman near the pool at Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel. 

Sources close to Michael and the woman tell us they're baffled the case was dropped since cops took photos of the alleged victim's bruises and torn clothing.

We're told the woman referred to Smith as her boyfriend, and our sources say they're worried Smith pressured her into not cooperating with cops.

Michael Strahan Blindsided by Ripa Taking Divorce Cheap Shot

4/29/2016 9:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

The gloves are off ... and Michael Strahan got that message loud and clear when Kelly Ripa dropped an unscripted jab at him over divorce, TMZ has learned. 

Sources connected to production tell us Ripa's intro to a segment about divorced couples was a total shock to Strahan. If you missed it -- Kelly innocently turned to her co-host and said, "So, you've gotten divorced ..."

We're told the look of shock on his face was 100% authentic.

Of course, both Kelly and Michael knew they were doing the segment, but we're told he had NO IDEA she was going to raise his divorce as part of it. If it looks like a cheap shot, that's exactly how Michael and others on set took it ... according to our sources.

Strahan played it off on the air this time, but these last 2 weeks -- before he jumps to 'GMA' full-time -- are gonna get interesting.

'American Idol' Parent Company Goes Bankrupt Show Became a Money Pit

4/28/2016 11:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0428_american_idol_so_you_think_you_can_dance_gettyThe media giant behind "American Idol" and "So You Think You Can Dance" has filed for bankruptcy, and part of the problem is ... 'Idol' was hemorrhaging money in its final seasons. 

Core Media Group filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy Thursday morning saying it's several hundred million dollars in the hole, and needs to reorganize its debts. Core and all its subsidiaries say they have $73 million in assets, but more than $512 million in debt. 

One of its biggest creditors is 'Idol' creator Simon Fuller, who is owed more than $3.3 million. Several law firms and music labels, as well as the FOX Network are also owed dough.

Core Media's filing includes many of its holdings, including 19 Entertainment which owns the recording rights of 'Idol' superstars like Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson.

In the bankruptcy docs, Core says revenue started sliding after 2012 when 'Idol' ratings started declining. For instance in 2014, earnings dropped $15 million from the previous year.
