Oprah Winfrey Owner of Oprah2020.com Says, 'I'll Sell It for 6 Figures!!!'

1/9/2018 11:38 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Oprah Winfrey better pony up the dough if she wants to own Oprah2020.com for her possible presidential run ... because the dude who's got it wants a huge chunk o' change to unload it.

We spoke to the guy who bought the domain around 2 years ago in 2016 who tells us it came cheap -- but he's willing to sell it for a whole lot more -- at least 6 figures.

The man tells us he bought the domain when he realized Donald Trump had the potential to upset Hillary Clinton. Figuring another huge celeb could run in the future, he put his money on Oprah and pounced.

While the owner of the domain says he's yet to be contacted by anyone from Oprah's team to buy it ... he's all ears.

And if you're wondering, the guy says Oprah's got a chance for his vote, too. Get ready, Donald.

Gayle King Prez Winfrey's Got a Nice Ring ... But She Ain't Convinced Yet

1/9/2018 9:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Gayle King is doubling down ... trying to clarify Stedman Graham's comment about Oprah running for President, and throwing in her own 2 cents too.

We got Gayle leaving CBS Tuesday in NYC, after she went on the air and offered a tightrope answer as to whether Oprah was serious about a presidential bid in 2020.

The co-anchor said Oprah was intrigued, but probably not actively considering it at this point -- despite folks already hitting her up to run a campaign.

Gayle got direct with us, insisting while SHE personally thinks President Winfrey is easy on the ears ... Oprah is not convinced, and is not seriously considering a run.

We also press her on Stedman's L.A. Times quote where he said, "She would absolutely do it" if people wanted her. Gayle can't handle that truth, and thinks reporters got it wrong. 

President Trump Mostly Cheered At Nat'l Championship

1/8/2018 5:19 PM PST
Breaking News

7:15 PM PT -- Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough definitely wasn't in Trump's corner Monday night. He was heard yelling, "F*** Trump," before kickoff.

President Trump was met with a LOT of noise at the college football National Championship game on Monday ... and from what we heard on the broadcast, it sounded mostly positive. There were some boos, too. 

Trump waved to the crowd and had a big smile on his face at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta -- flanked by military personnel. He stayed on the field through the National Anthem.

Remember, both Alabama and Georgia were Trump states in the 2016 election.

One other thing ... Kendrick Lamar is set to perform for the halftime show. It'll be interesting to see if the rapper -- who's a huge Trump critic -- says anything to ruffle feathers.

Senator Elizabeth Warren Sidesteps Questions About Oprah 2020 Presidential Run

1/8/2018 1:46 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Senator Elizabeth Warren loves Oprah Winfrey for sure, but it's apparent she's not ready to throw her support behind O for a 2020 Presidential run.

We got the Massachusetts Senator Monday at Reagan National Airport in D.C. and gave her several openings to echo the sentiment held by a number of people after Oprah's historic Golden Globes speech, but she wouldn't go there.

She was more direct on the subject of the current President, saying Trump has no one to blame but himself for books like 'Fire and Fury,' because his own words give credibility to Michael Wolff's claims.

Michael Rapaport to Donald Trump I Created 'Sloppy' Steve Bannon!!!

1/7/2018 11:26 AM PST

Michael Rapaport says Donald Trump ripped off his idea for "Sloppy Steve Bannon," claiming he came up with the nickname a year ago ... and he's got the proof.

Mike posted a video Sunday in which he slams Trump for allegedly stealing his OG adjective for the former White House Chief Strategist, saying he coined the name "Sloppy Steve" a good 300-something days before 45 started throwing it around this week.

He tells Trump, whom he calls "d*** stain Donald," that he's already talking to his real "Jew lawyers" -- unlike Roy Moore's wife's own attorney -- to see if he's got a copyright infringement case against the Prez.

Clearly he's joking here ... but it's still funny.

Chuck Zito Sick of H'wood Witch Hunt And Just Try Me, Trump Haters!!!

1/5/2018 7:41 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chuck Zito's letting his shirt do the talking when it comes to pledging allegiance to President Trump ... but he's also got a mouth on him and probably a fist, too.

The former "Oz" star, and real life badass, was in Bev Hills Thursday when we asked about Trump's sexual misconduct accusers -- his shirt led us down the path -- and Chuck went off.

First, he called the wave of allegations in Hollywood a "witch hunt" that was hurting his close friends. When he addressed Trump's accusers, his response was pretty much ... see my shirt.

But a bit more menacing. Basically, Chuck's begging haters to make a move.

BTW, his shirt's missing an apostrophe, but we're not about to tell him.

Henry Winkler This Trump, Bannon Book Beef Means Unhappy Days for All of U.S.

1/5/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Henry Winkler's no fan of President Trump, but he's not celebrating Trump's new war with adviser-turned-enemy, Steve Bannon ... instead, he's gravely concerned about it.

We got the Fonz at LAX Wednesday, and asked what he thought of the legal jockeying and mudslinging over Bannon's remarks in Michael Wolff's book, 'Fire and Fury.' He thinks the former allies are playing games, but the only people they're actually hurting are American citizens.

Of course, Trump failed to block the book, and its explosive allegations, from hitting bookshelves Friday.

Henry pointed out, even 45 can't stop the First Amendment ... and added Trump's antics have now crossed a dangerous line.

LeAnn Rimes' Stepsons Ivanka's an 'Idiot' Not Presidential Material

1/4/2018 7:57 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

LeAnn Rimes took the fifth when our photog asked about Ivanka Trump's alleged aspirations to become the first female president ... while her stepsons unleashed their own brand of fire and fury.

We got LeAnn, hubby Eddie Cibrian and his 2 kids leaving Staples Center Wednesday night when our guy asked her about a passage in Michael Wolff's new book, 'Fire and Fury,' in which he claims Ivanka flirted with the idea of running for the office currently held by her dad.

LeAnn is mum but her stepsons make their disdain crystal clear.

The White House says the book is garbage -- packed with lies -- and they're trying to get it yanked.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren to Prez Careful What Ya Take Credit For, Donny!

1/3/2018 3:46 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has no problem with President Trump gloating about the safest year in commercial aviation happening on his watch, but there's a BIG but attached.

The Senator had just flown into D.C.'s Reagan National Airport Wednesday when we got her take on Trump bragging there were zero aviation deaths last year on commercial flights. Trump's nemesis has never been shy about firing back at him, but this time she played it cool.

But like ... the kinda cool that feels like a setup. What she eventually said plays more like a warning to Trump than praise for him.

As for Meryl Streep calling out Melania and Ivanka Trump for keeping silent on the President's alleged sexual misconduct -- Warren sounds like she's team Meryl. No shocker.

Bill and Hillary Clinton House Fire!!!

Breaking News

2:47 PM PT -- A Secret Service rep tells us the fire started in the ceiling of the second floor. Agents were able to use fire extinguishers to put the blaze out ... the fire department came to inspect and ensure everything was safe.

2:12 PM PT -- A rep for Hillary says the fire started in the Secret Service facility on the property, which is not connected to the main home. The Clintons were not home when the fire started.

12:22 PM PT -- The fire appears to have been on the second floor of the structure ... according to the local department, it's been mostly extinguished but crews are checking for anything additional.

The New York home of Bill and Hillary Clinton is on fire.

The Chappaqua Fire Dept. tells TMZ a structure on the property is ablaze and they are on the scene trying to control it.

We don't know whether the main structure was involved or if an ancillary structure such as a garage or guest house was on fire.

The Clinton's bought the home next door to their Chappaqua mansion in 2016 and turned the properties into a single compound.

We will update when we know the extent of the damage. 

Donald Trump Steve Bannon Has 'Lost His Mind' ... For Treason Quote

1/3/2018 11:06 AM PST
Breaking News

Donald Trump has completely turned on Steve Bannon -- saying the guy has lost his mind ... this after Bannon called a meeting the President's son took with Russians "treason."

Bannon was quoted by author Michael Wolff in a sweeping new book detailing the alleged chaos from Trump's first year in office as saying Don Jr.'s meeting in 2016 was treasonous.

Trump responded Wednesday in an official statement saying ... "Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind."

The Prez goes on to say that Bannon had little to do with his historic victory, and that while Bannon claims to be at war with the media ... he often leaked from the White House.

Trump says Bannon helped people -- presumably Wolff -- write phony books with his insights, which Trump says were actually limited. 

Welp ... looks like that bridge is burned.

'The Voice' Lawsuit You Booted Me ... Even Though Michelle Obama Invited Me

1/2/2018 8:05 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

A guy who says Michelle Obama invited him to a taping of "The Voice" is suing NBC after claiming the network treated him like a criminal, and now he struggles to find work.

Greg Duncan says The Office of the First Lady back in 2016 invited him to a taping honoring military veterans. He says he went through 2 security screens and an agent from the U.S. Secret Service told him to enjoy the show.

But in docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Duncan says he was later approached by NBC's security and Sheriffs and told to scram. He says no explanation was given and only that the Secret Service ordered him gone.

Duncan says he had a meeting set for June 17, 2016 with the Secret Service to get the low-down on why he was booted. Problem is ... Duncan, who says he's a commander with the U.S. Coast Guard, says he showed up to NBC's lot the day before for a commercial shoot but was told he's permanently banned.

Duncan says he was told he resembled a "lookout" for a group that got a hold of wristbands to gain unauthorized admission. Duncan says NBC got the wrong guy and NBC's ban has hurt his ability to get a job. He's suing for unspecified damages. We've reached out to NBC, so far no word back.

Sarah Silverman Torn Up Over Franken ... He's Kissy, But At Least He Admits It

1/2/2018 7:03 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sarah Silverman is sad Sen. Al Franken was forced to resign, and pissed President Trump hasn't had the decency to do the same.

We got Sarah at LAX Monday and asked her about her old pal who officially stepped down Tuesday after announcing he'd do so in December. She wanted to defend him, and tried her best ... but in the end said we have to respect the women who've accused Franken of sexual misconduct.

Sarah insists she's only seen a much different side of Franken ... albeit a kissy one. Still, she gives Franken credit for handling his scandal better than Trump.
