Abby Lee Miller Bows Out Of 'Dance Moms'

3/27/2017 12:36 PM PDT
Breaking News

0327-abby-lee-miller-TMZ-02"Dance Moms" star Abby Lee Miller is quitting the show because she says she's tired of being manipulated by male producers who don't know jack about dance.

Abby's been schooling kids in dance -- in her own unique way -- for 7 seasons, but posted her resignation in the wee hours of Monday morning. She blasted producers over creative differences ... saying she's continuously asked for credit on "all the ideas, award winning routines and costumes" but to no avail.

She insists she has no problem teaching the kids, but rather with "being manipulated, disrespected and used, day in and day out by men who never took a dance lesson in their lives and treat women like dirt."

It's unclear if she's quitting teaching altogether or just the reality show. We're waiting to hear back from her camp, and Lifetime has "no comment."

Tomi Lahren Negotiating Exit From Blaze

3/27/2017 11:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327-tomi-lahren-the-blaze-TMZ-01Tomi Lahren and TheBlaze are finished with each other, and they're now deep in negotiations to settle up.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, after Glenn Beck suspended Tomi over her comment on "The View" -- that she was pro-choice -- Tomi went to honchos at TheBlaze and said she wanted out.

There's clearly bad blood. Sources over at TheBlaze say Tomi's getting trashed ... "She's too crazy for us." On her side there's talk about what's behind this -- jealousy and that she's clearly the breakout star.

We're told she has 6 months left on her contract and TheBlaze was willing to pay her out, but that would mean Tomi couldn't work until October. We're told both sides are negotiating her exit and she will get less than 6 months of remaining salary but she'll be able to take another job.

We're told the settlement will be struck sometime this week.

As for where Tomi will go ... probably somewhere -- she has almost 4 1/2 million Facebook followers.

Cuba Gooding Jr. Lifts Sarah Paulson's Dress She Laughs, Fans Do Not

3/27/2017 6:47 AM PDT

0327-cuba-gooding-jr-sarah-paulson-rex-01Cuba Gooding Jr. lifted up Sarah Paulson's dress during an "American Horror Story" event, and while they both laughed it off ... some fans think he crossed the line.

The co-stars were doing a panel discussion in L.A. when Sarah turned to greet Kathy Bates, and Cuba took the opportunity to hike up her dress ... seemingly to playfully check out her legs. You can see Sarah appeared to take it as a joke.

Sarah and Cuba are pretty close -- they already worked together on 'People vs. O.J.' -- but some fans in the audience reacted on social media ... calling him a "d**k" who shouldn't be allowed around Sarah. Others described Kathy as being visibly appalled.

Everything continued smoothly onstage though.

'OITNB' Matt McGorry Triumphant in Bev Hills PD Confrontation

3/27/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0324_Matt-McGorry_bhpd_tmzMatt McGorry just won a legal victory against a member of the Beverly Hills Police Dept. who tried to stop him from recording an incident to make sure the cops behaved properly.

Matt happened upon a traffic accident involving a Latino, so he grabbed his cell phone and pushed record to make sure law enforcement stayed on the up and up.

The "Orange Is the New Black" star is big in the Black Lives Matter movement and feels strongly ... video keeps cops in line.

Problem is ... the civilian traffic enforcement officer who Matt was recording wasn't having it and ordered Matt to stop. Matt was defiant, continuing to record and questioning the officer.

Matt posted the video and that got the attention of the brass at the Beverly Hills PD. We've learned they've invited him to come to the station to have a chitchat where they will make clear ... he had every right to record the incident.

The brass wants to make one other point ... he shouldn't record the action from the street, because someone could get run over.

Taraji P. Henson & Nia Long Beef Started with Bloody Joke

3/24/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0324-taraji-henson-nia-long-tmzTaraji P. Henson jokingly asked Nia Long if she was on her period after she went nuts on a fellow cast member ... and that's what set off their raging feud on the set of "Empire."

Production sources tell TMZ ... Nia showed up late shortly after beginning her stint on the show, prompting one of the male actors to joke, "Damn, why are you on black people time?"

We're told that sent Nia into a rage ... chewing the guy out. The actor told her it was just a joke but she continued berating him ... and that's when Taraji fired back -- "What are you, on your period? Is it that time, girlfriend?"

Things got super heated ... and it set the tone for a relationship that was barely civil. Taraji has always been super protective of the cast and crew and everyone was in her corner.

TMZ broke the story ... the hair and makeup crew filed a complaint against Nia for mistreating them. She maintains the allegations are bogus.
