Kim Zolciak Attacks Kenya Moore ... Nobody Talks Crap About My Kids!

7/24/2017 7:39 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Zolciak raged out on Kenya Moore because she thought Kenya said something about her son, who was horribly injured by a dog bite -- and it took several cast members to hold her back.

Multiple 'RHOA' production sources tell us Kim went all Mama Bear while they were shooting over the weekend at a home in Atlanta. We're told Kenya and Kim were throwing shade as soon as they saw each other -- but when things got personal, it got out of hand.

Kim made comments about Kenya's new marriage being fake ... and Kenya fired back that Kim had pimped out her daughter to get John Legend tickets. Everyone we spoke to agrees to that much, but here's where it gets messy.

We're told Kim thinks Kenya said the Legend tix were for "your injured son." Others in the house say they never heard Kenya say the son part. Doesn't matter ... Kim was convinced and lost it ... rushing at Kenya, knocking over and breaking glasses on the way.

Cast members and production staff grabbed Kim and calmed the situation. We're told Kim immediately bounced, and is genuinely pissed -- not just "for the show" drama ... like last season.

O.J. Simpson Too Toxic for a Book Deal ... Major Publishers Say

7/24/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

O.J. Simpson's still untouchable in the literary world -- most major publishers will NOT be scrambling to offer him a book deal after he gets out of prison.

We spoke with multiple major publishers who said ... despite being granted parole, and all the interest in recent O.J. projects -- like the "30 for 30" documentary and 'The People vs. O.J.' -- the book world will take a hard pass. We're told publishers fear a major backlash, or boycott, that could impact their roster of authors.

Another reason he's considered toxic is publishers don't see people rushing to put money in O.J.'s pocket, because the public still considers him guilty of double murder. As Keith Urbahn, president of publishing giant Javelin, put it ... "Consumers won't spend 20 bucks on a self-aggrandizing book about how he's turned his life around."

Last time O.J. landed a book deal was 2007's 'If I Did It' ... which cost mega-publisher Judith Regan her job at HarperCollins. Our sources say that fiasco is fresh in the minds of publishing execs.

Bottom line -- don't hold your breath for O.J.'s tell-all memoir. 

Beyonce 'Whitewashed' Wax Figure Now in a Much Different Light

7/21/2017 1:27 PM PDT

Beyonce's controversial wax figure got a little makeover ... and maybe a little sun too.

Bey's wax figure at Madame Tussauds in NYC was briefly removed from the museum amid criticism it looks like a white woman, but was back on full display Friday ... with some slight modifications.

Tussauds reportedly updated its wax Beyonce by adjusting the styling and lighting of her figure. Take a look at the side-by-side pics ... definitely some changes to the hairstyle and complexion.

Still not a dead ringer, but look at this video -- the closer ya get, the more Bey-ish it gets.


'Pawn Stars' Rick Harrison Don't Invest In O.J. Stuff

7/21/2017 1:05 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nothing hurts the value of an autograph like murder ... which is why O.J. Simpson's got a big problem on his hands, so says "Pawn Stars" honcho Rick Harrison.

With Simpson arguably more famous now than ever before, the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (airs weeknights on FS1) asked Harrison if he expects a spike in demand for O.J. stuff.

But Harrison says the exact opposite will happen -- and says if Juice is planning on making crazy money doing autograph signings at sports collectors shows ... he's BADLY mistaken.

Blac Chyna New BF Gets BC Tatted On Him! How's That Look, Rob?

7/21/2017 9:59 AM PDT

Blac Chyna's new man is all-in on her brand ... and they're both making sure Rob Kardashian's aware.

Chyna and singer Mechie -- who she's been hooking up with for a couple weeks -- shot a video showing off a very fresh looking 'BC' tattoo behind his ear. If it wasn't clear already ... she's definitely moved on from Rob.

She has a bad history with tattoos and dudes (*cough, Future*) ... so, interesting that HE got the ink this time around.

This isnt the first time Chyna's rubbed her relationship with Mechie in Rob's face either. When Rob went on his social media tirade against her ... he posted a video Chyna allegedly sent him of her and Mechie kissing in bed ... as well as the photo with the other guy, Ferrari.

As we reported ... Chyna got a restraining order against Rob and he vowed to stop slut-shaming her online. This should test Rob's will power.

Lonzo Ball Don't Bang Kardashians Yet ... Says Shannon Brown

7/21/2017 9:07 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lonzo Ball will have plenty of time to crush all the celebrity ass he wants -- AFTER he starts to kill it in the NBA ... so, don't go chasing the Kardashians just yet.

This is the wise message from ex-Laker Shannon Brown ... who knows all about dating famous women. 

Of course, Brown famously married R&B star Monica back in 2010 -- after Brown had already won 2 NBA titles with the Lake Show.

Brown isn't saying to stay away from Kylie, Kendall or any other K-family member who might be interested (Kris?) ... he's just sayin' wait a minute.

BTW, Lonzo already has a hot girlfriend ... so, in theory, it shouldn't be a problem.

Justin Bieber Banned from China For Being a Baaaaad Boy ...

7/21/2017 6:38 AM PDT

Justin Bieber found out it IS too late to say he's sorry -- China just banned his ass for bad behavior.

Beijing's Culture Bureau responded Friday to a fan's request asking why the Biebs' Purpose tour has scheduled dates in Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore and Hong Kong but NOT China.

According to the bureau, Justin pissed off the People's Republic and they said, "Justin Bieber is a gifted singer, but he is also a controversial young foreign idol. As far as we are concerned, he has engaged in a series of bad behaviors, both in his social life and during a previous performance in China."

The bureau didn't dive into specifics but you'll recall Justin, back in 2013, got carried onto the Great Wall of China ... emperor-style, no less.

Kid Ink Makes Tattoo Bet With TMZ Photog Clips Better Beat the Heat!

7/20/2017 8:14 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rap star Kid Ink better hope the L.A. Clippers can win without Chris Paul next year, 'cause if they don't ... he's gonna become a walking TMZ billboard!!

The "Supersoaka" spitter is a HUGE Clips fan! Our camera guy, a big Miami Heat supporter. So when we ran into K.I. out in NYC, we tested his confidence in the team with a wager:

If the Clippers finish with a better record than the Heat next season, our photog will have to get a tattoo of Kid Ink's Batgang crew logo permanently etched on him. But if the Clips end up below Miami in the win column, the rapper's gotta get the TMZ logo tatted on him!!

FYI -- the MIA won 41 games last season. The LAC, 51 ... but that was with CP3.

For being such high stakes, the dude doesn't seem worried one bit. On the other hand, he already has like, a million tattoos. So what's one more?

Beyonce 'Whitewashed' Wax Figure Just Overlit Says Madame Tussauds

7/19/2017 1:02 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Beyonce's controversial new wax figure -- which looks a lot like "White Chicks" Bey -- has the perfect complexion ... when the lights are down low.

That's Madame Tussauds' explanation for the freshly unveiled statue of Beyonce in their NYC museum. It's come under fire because ... well, there are a lot of reasons:

- Fans think she looks more like Lindsay Lohan,
- Or Mariah Carey
- Or Kate Hudson
- Or Maya Rudolph
- Whoever she looks like, she's white as hell 

Madame Tussauds tells TMZ ... "Our talented team of sculptors takes every effort to ensure we accurately colour match all of our wax figures to the celebrity being depicted. Lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the colour of our wax figures."

That's their story. No word if Beyonce's buying it.

Megan Fox might though ... 'cause that's definitely more Megan than Bey. Right?

Caitlyn Jenner's Ex-Wife Caitlyn Running 4 Senate Makes Me LOL!!!

7/19/2017 9:11 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Caitlyn Jenner better reconsider making a run for the U.S. Senate ... at least according to her ex-wife, Linda Thompson.

We got Linda, who was married to Caitlyn for 5 years, outside their son Brandon's Tuesday night gig at L.A.'s Belasco Theater -- and asked her about the political buzz.

Caitlyn said this week she's been mulling over a Senate run, but it's clear Linda won't be voting for her if she does.

She'll happily give CJ a good hearty laugh though!

Rosie O'Donnell Plugs Pushing Trump Off a Cliff In Video Game

7/19/2017 7:19 AM PDT

Rosie O'Donnell's all for killing President Trump in a video game ... at the very least.

Rosie's been getting her kicks playing an online game called "Push Trump Off a Cliff Again" and she's promoting it on her social media. Not exactly shocking considering she's never hid her hatred for Trump, and vice versa.

On the other hand ... it's pretty bold for her to promote even virtual violence against POTUS in the wake of Kathy Griffin's bloody head debacle. And remember Rosie had to eat crow after a verbal attack on the President's son, Barron.

Conservatives are destroying her for plugging the game, although reaction from Rosie's fans seems to be ... play on!

Aaron Carter 911 'Looks Like He Is On Something'

7/19/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Aaron Carter was opening his door while driving and swerving all over the road -- until he drove right past a parked cop ... according to an extremely worried 911 caller.

In the audio obtained by TMZ, the caller says he'd been following the Chevy Suburban, and saw it go all the way from the median to the guardrail. Once he got close enough, he declared ... "Oh, he looks like he is on something."

What's interesting is the caller points out a cop was sitting nearby as Aaron was pulling his SUV into the AutoZone where he was arrested. That totally syncs up with the arresting deputy's report.

As we reported, Aaron's threatening to go after cops because he's says they never saw him behind the wheel ... and, therefore, had no right to arrest him.

Kid Rock Pataki & Cain Weigh In On Rocker for Senate

7/19/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kid Rock's getting a big endorsement, and a big thumbs down, even before he officially runs for a Michigan Senate seat -- in other words ... welcome to politics, Kid!

We got former U.S. Senator and New York Governor George Pataki in NYC, and he thinks the rock star is exactly the kinda candidate the GOP needs now. Ditto for Caitlyn Jenner, who's made some noise about possibly entering politics.

Rock launched KidRockforSenate.com Monday and posted campaign signs all over social media.

However, another staunch Republican, Herman Cain, crapped all over Candidate Kid and Caitlyn. Interesting ... the guy who backs Donald Trump clearly doesn't think all celebs are fit for office.
