Richard Simmons 'Sighting' Sets Off Alarms in the O.C.

3/28/2017 4:12 PM PDT

Richard Simmons? We started getting calls and video of a guy, who sure looks like the former fitness guru at a 24 Hour Fitness in Orange County, CA, but Simmons' rep insists ... it's not him.

This video is being shopped to media outlets as the first sighting of Richard in years. It's become a thing ... blogs devoted to finding the reclusive celeb.

The gym is an hour from Richard's Hollywood Hills home, where he's been self-confined for 3 years. It would be super weird for Richard to venture out that far.

This guy must get stopped a lot.

Migos Backpedal on Gay Remarks We Love Makonnen, Frank & All LGBT!

3/28/2017 7:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Migos insist they meant no ill will toward iLoveMakonnen or any other LGBT artist ... heck, they'll even play a gay show if the price is right.

We got the hip-hop trio at LAX, and they were doing some pretty intense backpedaling on seemingly harsh comments they made about Makonnen coming out of the closet.

They tell us their words were twisted in an article, in which they appeared to say things like "They supported him?" and "This world is not right" and, of course, "That's wack, bro."

Seems like Migos found their come-to-Jesus moment in all the backlash they got. Good to see they've got their priorities in order ... morality, money and otherwise.

White House Repeat Fence Jumper Marci Wahl Inspired by Other Jumpers Vows to Do it Again

3/27/2017 1:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327_white-house_fence_gettyThe woman who was twice arrested for attempting to jump a White House fence says she was inspired by the man who not only made it on the grounds for 17 minutes but even jiggled a doorknob.

Marci Wahl has just been charged with the crime of entering or remaining in a restricted building. True enough ... she never made it past the fence and in the first case her shoelaces became entangled on the spires and she dangled helplessly.

According to federal documents, obtained by TMZ, she said during an interview with Secret Service agents she was motivated by "the recent success" of other fence jumpers.

As for why she jumped the fence a second time after being taken into custody, she said she "lost track of where I was and was walking to the courthouse for a urinalysis appointment."

She told agents she was determined to speak with President Trump.

She went on to say she would stay in Washington D.C. until she felt bored, adding, "I feel like I am supposed to be here right now." She also said she plans on jumping the fence again, and when agents told her it was not the proper way of getting a meeting, she said she would contact her state senator.

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.

EXCLUSIVE

0324-danielle-bregoli-tmz-getty"Cash Me Outside" girl Danielle Bregoli has officially gone Hollywood -- we've learned she just signed a deal with a major TV production company.

We're told Danielle scribbled her John Hancock Friday for a reality show that will be loosely formatted, starring, of course, Danielle. 

Nothing's been shot, but we're told producers are so confident they're going to shop the concept and believe they can sell a series in the room. She'll have some high-powered help -- we've learned she's signed with IMG's original content department.

We broke the story ... Danielle's managers said they had been contacted by 7 production companies and 4 of them showed interest in doing a reality show with Danielle and her mom.

The 14-year-old's already given fans PLENTY of material ... first on "Dr. Phil" with her inadvertent breakout role that launched her into stardom ... followed by a slew of physical throwdowns that also included a brawl with her mom.

Material won't be lacking.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Responds to R-Word Comment Over Special Olympics

3/24/2017 1:16 PM PDT

Arnold Schwarzenegger just schooled an Internet troll for mocking the Special Olympics, calling the participants the r-word.

A random guy posted this ... "The Special Olympics make no sense. The Olympics are for the best athletes in the entire world to compete against each other to determine who is the best. Having r****** competing is doing the opposite!"

The guy was responding to a video Arnold posted touting the athletes.

Arnold responded to the troll this way ... "it's a teachable moment. Right now, I guarantee you that these athletes have more courage, compassion, brains, skill -- actually, more of every positive human quality than you."

Arnold has a dog in the fight. His mother-in-law, Eunice Shriver, founded the Special Olympics and he's been active in the event for years.

Arnold had one other thing to say, "So take their path -- you could learn from them, and try to challenge yourself, to give back, to add something from the world."

The troll may have gotten his message ... it appears he deleted his comment.

'Stranger Things' Kid Doesn't Get Why Clowns Even Exist

3/24/2017 6:35 AM PDT

"Stranger Things" star Finn Wolfhard paints a horrific picture when it comes to clowns.

The kid actor just finished wrapping the horror flick "It" -- an adaptation of Stephen King's novel -- and explained Thursday at LAX why he's just not about that clown life.

He's probably got a point.

Nia Long 'Empire' Hair and Makeup Lodged Complaint Nia Threatened Suit

3/23/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0322_taraji-henson-nia-long-and-terrence-howard-tmz-2Nia Long was such a nightmare on the set of "Empire" ... the hair and makeup folks lodged an official complaint against her, and Nia also threatened to sue the show over an improper goodbye ... this according to well-placed production sources.

Multiple people -- cast, crew and production people -- tell TMZ Nia was disrespectful and unprofessional throughout her run on the show.

We broke the story ... Nia and Taraji P. Henson were at war with each other because Taraji was irate over the way Nia treated the staff, and it got so bad producers were trying to figure out how to shoot scenes with the two of them where each actress did their part separately. It was so tense neither would speak to the other.

The various sources are scoffing at Nia's reps, who claim the stories about the actress are made up. Our sources say there were numerous incidents, but 3 are still vivid.

-- Our sources say in the history of the show the hair and makeup people have only filed one formal complaint for mistreatment ... and that was against Nia. The hair and makeup people say she was extremely disrespectful ... at times deciding she didn't like her look at the last minute and then chewing them out. The sources say there have been numerous guest appearances on the show -- "from rappers to Demi Moore, and no complaints were lodged against anyone but Nia."

-- Our sources say Nia was "habitually late." They say Taraji and Terrence Howard would sometimes be waiting on set for 30 minutes and Nia was a no-show. Producers would finally use a stand-in for Nia so Taraji and Terrence could rehearse a scene.

-- It is custom on the set when guest stars finish their last scene for the Assistant Director to call it out ... "This is (name of actor) last scene," followed by a "thank you" and applause. When Nia did her last scene, Terrence was having some sort of allergic reaction and his lip began swelling. The A.D. was looking for Benadryl when Nia left. It's unclear if the A.D. was distracted or just didn't want to thank Nia, but we're told as Nia walked out she told someone in production she was going to sue the show because the "goodbye" was in her contract. Production sources say it was not in her contract.

We spoke with one actor on the show who said the experience was so unpleasant they would never work with her again.

We reached out to Nia's rep, who said, "We stand by our comments this morning that Nia has always, and continues to be, a consummate professional on set. In respect to her working relationships with the cast, she came onto this project, in the first place, because of her long-standing friendship and professional relationship with Terrence Howard."

The rep went on to say, "We are not aware of any complaint, suit or case against her from anyone involved in the show, and we find the timing of all of these stories to be very suspicious, given that the series returns tonight."

Conor McGregor WATER BOTTLE FIGHT VICTORY ... Massive Fines Reduced

3/22/2017 9:32 AM PDT
Breaking News

BIG WIN for Conor McGregor ... the UFC star got his big $75,000 fine reduced to $25,000 for that water bottle fight with Nate Diaz at the UFC 202 presser.

Remember, the Nevada State Athletic Commission hit McGregor with the massive fine -- plus 50 hours of community service. Conor was PISSED!!! So was Dana White.

But the Commission granted McGregor a rehearing which took place moments ago ... and agreed to REDUCE the punishment to a $25k fine plus 25 hours of community service, per Damon Martin of FOX Sports. He has 6 months to complete the community service. 

And get this ... now the Commission is recommending a rehearing for Nate Diaz as well, who got the same initial punishment as Conor.
