Marlon Wayans Roseanne's Next Gig? ABC Out, KKK In!

5/29/2018 3:02 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Marlon Wayans has an idea where Roseanne will land after ABC gave her show the boot ... and it's not with any of the major 3-letter networks.

We got the comedian at LAX on Tuesday and wanted to get his reaction to "Roseanne" getting axed just hours after a racist tweet about former President Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett

Marlon jokes he was actually the guy behind the tweet ... for selfish reasons, but then got serious about what could be Roseanne's comeback gig. Okay, maybe he wasn't serious. Maybe. Either way, it's pretty damn hilarious.

You'll recall, Marlon was majorly pissed off last week when friends of his got arrested at a Houston's in Atlanta. 

He's found way more humor in Roseanne's screwup. 

Obama Aide Valerie Jarrett I'm Fine After Roseanne Attack But, I Worry About Others

5/29/2018 2:19 PM PDT
Breaking News

The woman Roseanne Barr called a baby born out of the Muslim brotherhood and 'Planet of the Apes' says she can deal with the racism -- but worries about those facing similar attacks out of the spotlight.

Barack Obama's former adviser, Valerie Jarrett, spoke on MSNBC Tuesday following Roseanne's racist comment, saying she's "fine" ... but adding she's concerned about those who don't have such a public support system coming to their defense.

She says she wants this to be a teaching moment, but notes that there are daily examples of racism black people experience that don't get the attention she's getting now.

BTW ... Valerie also calls out President Trump for setting the tone that she believes Roseanne followed and executed. Speaking of "Roseanne" ... she's all the way canceled.

She also says she got a call from Disney CEO Bob Iger, who apologized and said his company has a "zero tolerance" for such hateful comments.

Roseanne Makes Muslim-Apes 'Joke' About Obama Adviser ... Deletes & Apologizes

5/29/2018 8:00 AM PDT
Breaking News

Roseanne Barr says she's done with social media ... just hours after she fired off a racially charged tweet at a former adviser to President Obama.

Roseanne's random tweet late Monday night said, "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj." She was responding to a tweet about Valerie Jarrett, an African-American woman who was one of Obama's closest advisers while in the White House.

Early Tuesday, Roseanne deleted the tweet about Valerie ... and said she was "truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste." She also claimed she was "leaving Twitter."

Her politics have been front and center since the reboot of her show became a huge hit.

Not only does Roseanne's character embrace President Trump, but he called her to congratulate on the huge ratings ... and even took credit for them.

John O'Hurley Trump's Memorial Day Tweet Was 'Inappropriate' What Do Ya Expect?!

5/29/2018 7:04 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John O'Hurley admits (albeit with a chuckle) President Trump's Memorial Day tweet was inappropriate ... but adds America didn't "hire" him for his decency.

We got John leaving Craig's on Monday night in WeHo and wanted to get his take on 45's self-serving tweet.

The tweet drew outrage ... from politicians to the Veterans group VoteVets that's more than half a million strong on Twitter. The group responded, "This is the most inappropriate #MemorialDay comment that a @POTUS has ever made. Self-promotion on a day to remember the fallen, and wishing those remembering their deceased loved ones a 'happy' holiday is appalling. #CadetBoneSpurs."

John agrees it wasn't appropriate, but explains why he continues to support Trump. 

George Lopez to Prez Trump Honor Those Who Served ... Not Yourself, Jackass!!

5/29/2018 6:38 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

George Lopez knows Memorial Day's about appreciating the sacrifice of people who died for freedom in America, but says someone needs to teach President Trump.

We got the comedian -- and perhaps Trump's #1 critic -- in WeHo Monday, where we asked what he made of Trump's self-praising holiday tweet.

In case you missed it ... Trump shouted out his own administration more than saying an actual "thank-you" to fallen soldiers, saying they'd be pleased with the country's unemployment numbers and revamped military.

George acknowledges Hollywood types are pretty self-absorbed, but says even he knows not to blow his own horn on such a day -- unlike Trump ... and a legendary porn star.

Nicole Eggert Ordered to Stop Harassing Scott Baio Fan

5/23/2018 4:23 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

6:30 PM PT -- Eggert tells us, "Myself and my supporters have been continually attacked by Jorges, a paid internet troll hired by the Baios, to the point that she has contacted people in real life and tried to have them fired for supporting me. We have record of all of it. She seems to suffer from mental illness as she has already admitted to "stalking" me.

A source close to Eggert tells us in a tweet that mentioned Baio's wife, Jorges allegedly said, "Yes ... I am stalking Nicole Eggert. We have to take it upon ourselves to spread the truth. Because y'all have no clue what so ever what that means. LIAR QUEENS. Full admission! all liars, like Nicole! Scum."

Nicole Eggert's been ordered to stay the hell away from a Scott Baio fan alleging Nicole trolled her on social media ... and to immediately stop harassing her. 

The woman -- Kimberly Jorges -- got a restraining order against Nicole ... this according to new legal docs obtained by TMZ. We've learned the fan claims Nicole urged her 70k Twitter followers bombard the fan's employer with phone calls. We're told the fan and Nicole had been going at it for a while before Nicole allegedly posted the name of the fan's employer.

The fan was a staunch supporter of Baio's and threw shade on Nicole and her claims he sexually abused her during the run of "Charles in Charge."

The restraining order comes on the same day TMZ broke the story that the D.A. found Nicole's claim Scott sexually assaulted her as credible. The D.A. called the case "potentially prosecutable" were it not for the statute of limitations, so the case will not be filed. 

President Trump Can't Hide from Haters on Twitter ... It's Unconstitutional!!

5/23/2018 10:46 AM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump's taking a big ole 'L' in court and on Twitter, and it's a victory -- of sorts -- for the likes of Chrissy Teigen and Rosie O'Donnell.

A federal judge ruled on Wednesday it's unconstitutional for the Prez to block anyone on the social media platform just because they disagree with him or his policies. The judge said that because he's a government official, Trump can't censor opposing views. 

POTUS has famously blocked Chrissy, Rosie, Stephen King and, for some reason (fear of vampires?), author Anne Rice -- not to mention many non-famous tweeters.

Anyway, the judge said it doesn't matter that Trump started his Twitter account before he was in the White House -- fact is, he's there now, and he works for the American people.

Even the ones who strongly disagree with or troll him on the Internet.

Donald Trump Everybody Loves Tomi Lahren!

5/23/2018 6:35 AM PDT

Donald Trump showed Tomi Lahren some serious love after someone threw a glass of water at Tomi and her mom.

Trump tweeted, "Everybody is with Tomi Lahren, a truly outstanding and respected young woman!"

The conservative FOX News contributor was in Minneapolis this week with her mom over the weekend when a woman chucked the water at her ... unprovoked.

Trump may be over his skis by saying "everybody" is with Tomi. Lots of people have problems with some of her views ... comparing Black Lives Matters protesters to the KKK, firing shots at Beyonce for her Super Bowl performance, and calling Joe Kennedy III a "little limp dick."

If, however, Trump is limiting his comment to the water-throwing incident, then maybe most people agree.

Brandi Chastain Arby's HOF Plaque Redo is Awesome Sauce!!!

5/22/2018 7:04 PM PDT
Breaking News

Soccer legend Brandi Chastain's Hall of Fame plaque left a lot to be desired, but luckily ... Arby's came to the rescue!

The fast food sandwich chain went out and found a sauce artist that did a much, much better job capturing the former Team USA star's likeness, saying ... "it’s not made of gold, but we think you look much better in Arby’s Sauce."

We strongly agree.

As we reported ... Chastain was honored with a plaque at the San Francisco Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame induction Monday, but it was pretty horribly done -- people said it looked more like Babe Ruth or Mickey Rooney than her.

So, next time a soccer star is set to get a HOF plaque and is looking for a consultation on how to do it right ... we're thinking Arby's.

Damon Wayans Ding Dong, Clayne Crawford is Dead To Me on 'Lethal Weapon'

5/15/2018 7:49 AM PDT

Damon Wayans is blasting his former "Lethal Weapon" costar, Clayne Crawford, as a menace to everyone on the show's set, and blaming him for the stunt that left him bloodied.

Damon claims Clayne smashed a male costar in the mouth with a bottle, and insists it was not an accident. Before he was fired, Clayne also directed some episodes of the FOX drama, and Damon claims he "Relished in making females cry. And struck fear in cast and crew."

During a since-deleted Twitter rant, Damon posted a pic of a sticker he says other staffers posted around the set referring to Crawford as an "emotional terrorist."

He's also really pissed about a stunt during a Crawford-directed episode where shrapnel cut the back of his head. Damon is blaming him for a lack of safety measures on set.

Crawford did cop to having angry outbursts, but added, "I am incredibly sorry if my passion for doing good work has ever made anyone feel less than comfortable on our set."

Damon says he waited until FOX picked up the show for its third season before dancing on Crawford's TV grave. When they start shooting the new season ... Seann William Scott will take over as Murtaugh's partner.

Safe to say ... Damon's feeling too old for this s**t.  

Melania Trump 'Really Well' After Surgery ... Says Donald

5/15/2018 5:55 AM PDT
Breaking News

Good news for Melania Trump ... she's recovering "really well" after undergoing kidney surgery on Monday ... this according to her husband, Donald Trump.

Melania underwent an embolization procedure at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center near Washington D.C. to treat a benign kidney condition, according to the White House.

The White House did not say exactly why Melania needed the procedure -- but medical experts say it's minimally invasive. 

"Our great First Lady is doing really well," Trump tweeted early Tuesday morning ... "Will be leaving hospital in 2 or 3 days."

He added, "Thank you for so much love and support!"

Kumail Nanjiani Bends the Knee to Meghan McCain ... In Fight Over Her Dad

5/14/2018 7:44 AM PDT

Meghan McCain UNLOADED on "Silicon Valley" star Kumail Nanjiani Monday morning for essentially saying her father, John McCain, didn't do enough to stand up for victims of bigotry. 

So, how did Kumail respond? With one of the nicest compliments ever. 

Backstory ... Meghan was pissed over a tweet Kumail posted about the White House aide who caused outrage last week when she joked that John's opinions didn't matter because he's gonna die soon anyway. 

"What was said about McCain was vile," Nanjiani wrote ... "but I wish the McCain’s had been as offended and vocal when vile stuff was said about other people/races/nationalities."

"Perhaps we wouldn’t be in this moment right now."

Meghan -- John's daughter -- was deeply offended and fired back Monday morning with a heated note and a video showing her dad shutting down anti-Obama supporters at a 2008 rally. 

"You mean like he did here? I could give you literally thousands of examples of my father speaking up against bigotry of all kinds but this video sums it up pretty concisely," Meghan wrote.

"You know nothing about my family or my father Kumail, nothing."

Kumail responded a short time later ... 

"Meghan, I did not mean to offend you. I could explain my point further but instead I will just say something I truly believe: if we had more politicians like your father, the world would be a better place."

Meghan thanked Kumail for his response -- and he wished her family well. 

Taylor Swift Kicks Off Tour ... I Got Yer Snake Right Here, Kim K.

5/9/2018 6:46 AM PDT
Breaking News

Taylor Swift's Reputation tour is taking everyone down memory lane to the time Kim Kardashian called her a snake on social media, because several fake ones littered her stage.

Taylor kicked off her tour Tuesday night in Glendale, Arizona with a giant 30-ft cobra in tow ... so, doesn't look like she's letting bygones be bygones.

Taylor explained that the snake diss, which had people stamping her socials with snake emojis, made her go "through some really low times." She also insinuated Kim was a bully. "If someone is using name-calling to bully you on social media -- and even if a lot of people jump on board with it, it doesn't have to defeat you. It can strengthen you instead," she told the crowd of 60k people.

Openers Charli XCX and Camila Cabello also joined Taylor onstage for her hit, "Shake It Off," but doesn't look like Taylor's ready to do that anytime soon.
