Joel McHale Boycott Thursday Night Football? ... No Way.

12/15/2017 7:27 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

This clip with Joel McHale sums up the NFL's problem with Thursday Night Football in a nutshell -- he  knows it's dangerous for the players ... but he loves the sport too much to stop watching.

McHale is a footballaholic -- but with huge names like Drew Brees and Richie Incognito calling for an end to the mid-week game due to a spike in injuries, we asked Joel if he would support one less day of the NFL.

The short answer ... no.

McHale was a tight end for the Washington Huskies back in college -- so, he knows what he's talking about when it comes to the risks of the sport.

But this is exactly the battle Brees, Incognito and others are facing -- fans can't get enough of the game ... despite the burden it puts on the players.

Omarosa I'm Back in D.C. ... No Questions, Please!!!

12/14/2017 3:55 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Omarosa has returned to Washington D.C. and, for once, she's trying to keep a very low profile ... and succeeding!

Nearly 48 hours after her exit from the White House ... Omarosa was back inside the Beltway. We spotted her right after she landed at Reagan National around 5:30 PM ET, but as soon as she saw us ... she bolted. Literally.

She made the most of her winter coat, bundling up and concealing her face -- and that was before she stepped outside. Seems Omarosa's trying to avoid questions about President Trump, or what happened Tuesday night at the White House.

As we reported, she'd love to score a new government gig. CIA, check out these covert moves.

Kevin Hart My Ex Labeled Eniko a 'Homewrecker' ... It Just Ain't True!!!

12/14/2017 7:11 AM PST

Call Kevin Hart a cheater, a womanizer ... whatever you want, but calling his wife a homewrecker crosses the line, and he says it nearly made him flip out.

Kevin was on the Power 105's 'Breakfast Club' Thursday morning and opened up about his sex tape scandal, saying he knew he'd have to take his lumps -- but people saying the whole mess was karma for Eniko was too much to handle.

It's obvious he's blaming one person for beating that drum -- his ex-wife, Torrei Hart.

You gotta see how Kev walked the line ... saying he doesn't want to bad-mouth Torrei, but he's gotta defend his current wife against a label he insists she doesn't deserve.

Garcelle Beauvais Good Riddance, Omarosa!

12/14/2017 7:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Omarosa had no place inside Trump's White House, not only because of her lack of political experience, but also because of her race ... according to Garcelle Beauvais.

We got the stunning Garcelle leaving Jamie Foxx's 50th birthday bash in Hollywood Wednesday night and asked her about Omarosa's resignation. Garcelle's reaction is priceless -- and she has a very strong opinion about who should replace her.

We also asked her about bullying victim Keaton Jones, who Garcelle had no idea had a white supremacist father. Again, Garcelle's reaction is, let's say ... very real.

Warren Sapp I Never Peed In Front of that Lady But ...

12/13/2017 1:24 PM PST
Breaking News

Warren Sapp is firing back against allegations of sexual misconduct -- claiming he NEVER urinated in front of an NFL Network wardrobe lady ... but there WAS a conflict over the bathroom. 

Sapp appeared on "The Andy Slater Show" on 940 AM in Miami and told his version of what went down during a bathroom incident with Jami Cantor while he was working at the network.

Long story short ... Sapp says he DID open the bathroom door and saw Cantor working in there -- but instructed her to get out ... and didn't begin to pee until she was gone.

"I walked in [and] asked her to leave," Sapp said ... "She left. She yelled what she yelled through the door, talkin' about that's her office."

Sapp explained, "This sh*tter can't be your office."

Cantor tells a different story in her lawsuit against the NFL Network ... claiming Sapp barged in, whipped it out and began to pee while telling the woman, "Sorry mama, but your office shouldn't be our sh*tter."

"I walked in that bathroom but there's no way I peed in front of her. I put that on my 6 kids. My 3 little girls and my 3 big boys -- no way, no how." 

Sapp also addressed Cantor's allegations that he gave her sex toys as Christmas presents -- saying he DID give them to some makeup artists after they requested them ... but never gave one to Cantor. 

When asked if he had spoken to any of the other players named in the suit, Sapp says he talked with Marshall Faulk ... but claimed his CTE kept him from remembering much of the conversation.

Seahawks' Malik McDowell Arrest Video Cusses Out Cops Like a Maniac

12/13/2017 10:37 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Malik McDowell repeatedly called a female cop a "bitch" and a male cop a "n**ga" during his arrest in ATL on Sunday ... and TMZ Sports has the video. 

We broke the story ... the 21-year-old rookie got into a verbal altercation outside of the SL Lounge early Sunday morning and cops were called to the scene. 

When they arrived, McDowell went ballistic on the officers -- cussing them out and yelling at them ... even accusing them of planting evidence on him. 

At one point he screams about how rich he is -- and that's why he feels justified calling the woman officer a "bitch."

The officer tells Malik to stop talking, to which he replies, "I can call you a bitch if I want to."

Malik tells the cops they'll never make as much money as he's made in the last 3 months and tells the woman, "You'll be a broke bitch for the rest of your life."

FYI, McDowell reportedly signed a 4-year contract worth $6.95 million after he selected in the 2nd round of the 2017 NFL Draft. 

Keaton Jones' Father White Supremacist Doing Time

12/13/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Social media pages belonging to Keaton Jones' estranged father are littered with white supremacy propaganda, although he hasn't posted in a while ... because he's locked up in a Tennessee jail.

The father's name is Shawn White and his Facebook features multiple memes with sayings like, "HOLY F*** I LOVE BEING WHITE," "Keep Calm and be White Pride,"  and "Aryan Pride."

The memes we found were all posted in 2014. There was also a selfie profile pic that shows Shawn shirtless with "PURE BREED" tatted on his chest ... and "WHITE PRIDE" on his stomach.

He also has neck ink that reads, "CWB" -- a common abbreviation for a gang called Crazy White Boy.

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, White's been in Knox County Jail since May 2015. He's locked up on a probation violation related to a 2012 aggravated assault conviction, and scheduled to get out in 2018.

It's unclear what, if any, relationship Shawn has with Keaton. He last posted a pic with Keaton and his sister in January 2015. We didn't find any record of Shawn marrying Kimberly Jones and, obviously, Keaton has his mom's last name.

Shawn's white supremacy posts are interesting in light of Kimberly's confederate flag photos ... which she's downplayed as "ironic and funny."  

Tim Allen Glad I Don't Live In 'Bama Both Candidates Sucked!

12/13/2017 7:54 AM PST

Tim Allen is a bigger fan of the dessert menu at Craig's than the two guys Alabama had to pick from for U.S. Senator.

We got Tim and his wife, Jane, along with Mary Hart and husband/producer Burt Sugarman leaving the WeHo hot spot Tuesday night right after Roy Moore's stunning defeat to Doug Jones.

When we asked about the results, Tim's answer was simple: the ice cream was good.

Tim has long been one of Hollywood's outspoken Republicans, but on this election night he didn't swing right. He also didn't swing left.

Roy Moore Loses Alabama Senate Election Against Doug Jones

12/12/2017 7:36 PM PST
Breaking News

The contentious and highly publicized race for Alabama's vacant Senate seat is finally over ... and the victor is Doug Jones.

Roy Moore lost the special election for the seat left open by Jeff Sessions Tuesday night, to his Democratic opponent Jones, by a slim margin ... amidst the mounting allegations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls when he was in his 30s.

Moore and his campaign chairman appeared on stage shortly after Jones' acceptance speech to announce they'd continue to watch votes come in, hoping the margin of victory is less than .5% for Jones to trigger an automatic recount ... but that seems very unlikely.

As we reported ... Moore rode in horseback to cast his ballot Tuesday -- and the showmanship apparently didn't pay off. It's unclear if his spokesman's TV appearances had any effect.

President Trump weighed in on Moore's loss by seemingly taking the high road.

Julie Chen Heartbroken Over Keaton Video But Mom Makes it 'Murky'

12/12/2017 7:41 AM PST

Julie Chen's a solid multitasker -- she pulled no punches for Kimberly Jones while showing major compassion for Keaton getting bullied.

We got the "Big Brother" and 'Talk' host leaving Craig's in WeHo Monday night, and asked her if photos of Keaton's mom with Confederate flags makes her uneasy about the flood of support for Keaton -- some of it financial.

Julie's clearly not a fan of those Kimberly pics, but she's found a way to separate that from Keaton's battles with bullies.

Roy Moore's Wife We're Not Anti-Semites ... Some of Our Best Lawyers Are Jews

12/11/2017 7:04 PM PST
Breaking News

Roy Moore and his wife rolled out that old tried-and-true response to allegations they're anti-Semitic -- pointing out they employ Jews. 

Kayla Moore was speaking at an event for her husband Monday night in Alabama, on the eve of the special Senate election, when she made the cringeworthy comment.

Kayla said the "fake news" would have you believe they don't care for Jews, and she wanted to set the record straight once and for all. Not sure this shout-out to their legal team will get the job done, but here it is. 

Kayla added some of their closest friends are Jewish, too. Seriously. That's almost word-for-word how she said it. 

As the Moore's inner circle might say ... oy vey!

Gigi Hadid That Wasn't Armpit Hair, Guys Blame It On Wardrobe!

12/11/2017 12:31 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Gigi Hadid wasn't trying to show off her unshaven pits during her LOVE Magazine photo shoot -- 'cause the fuzz folks saw was nothin' but loose fibers ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Gigi tell us her "armpit hair" -- which was prominently featured in day 11 of LOVE Magazine's Advent calendar video series -- was, in fact, residue left behind from the jacket she was wearing on set.

We're told the culprit was simply that navy cropped coat Gigi is seen wearing in the vid -- ya know, the one in which she's striking poses and kinda working up a sweat. Makes sense some of that could've gotten stuck to her. 

What doesn't make sense is that no one on set saw the hairy stuff during the shoot, or even while editing the video.

Bullied Student Keaton Jones' Mom Gets Backlash Over Confederate Flag

12/11/2017 10:47 AM PST

Photos and words posted by Tennessee student Keaton Jones' mother have many people questioning whether she deserves any of the sympathy generated by Keaton's viral video.

Kimberly Jones' Facebook page reportedly features several photos of herself and friends displaying the Confederate flag. There's also a post in August where she seems to be telling people to stop whining about slavery and racism. It's not clear exactly what she's referring to, but the post was written 2 weeks after the neo-nazi rally in Charlottesville.

One of the photos on her page shows Keaton and a few other kids. Keaton is holding the U.S. flag and another kid is holding the Confederate flag.

The video Kimberly posted of Keaton talking about getting bullied has won over a ton of celebs -- many of whom have invited him and his mom to Hollywood and sporting events.

You gotta wonder ... if Kimberly's posts -- especially the one where she shows zero sympathy for "butt hurt Americans" -- will make celebs and others reconsider their sympathy for her and Keaton.
