Kendra Wilkinson Throws 'I Picked Cotton' Party!!! What Slavery?

11/22/2017 2:16 PM PST
Exclusive Details

Kendra Wilkinson ain't just deep in the heart of Texas, she's knee-deep in controversy after reveling in the joy -- as she sees it -- of picking cotton.

Kendra knocked off an odd bucket list item Wednesday when she pulled over -- mid-road trip with her husband, Hank Baskett -- to wander into a random field and pick a cotton bulb clean.

Kendra joked she might get shot for trespassing -- a legit concern, to be honest -- but the tone deaf move came when she loudly celebrated, and posted it on social media. Perhaps a little too giddy for something so connected to slavery?

Kendra's rep tells TMZ she didn't intend to offend, and she's sorry if anyone took it the wrong way. As for anyone claiming she's racist -- the rep pointed out Hank is black.

Charlie Rose On-Air 'Sex Talk' Going Viral Thanks to John Oliver

11/21/2017 1:10 PM PST

Charlie Rose is off the air at CBS, but his sexual banter with his "CBS This Morning" co-hosts is all over the Internet ... thanks to John Oliver's HBO show, 'Last Week Tonight.' 

Oliver does a running "awkward sex talk" bit, fully dedicated to what -- at the time -- seemed like Rose's playful, yet sexually charged chit chat with Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell.

In one of the clips, you hear Norah tell a guest to "watch his hands, he knows what he's doing" in reference to Charlie holding a female guest.

Oliver's mocking is similar to that of Seth MacFarlane -- who made news when old clips of his surfaced in which he made fun of Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey after their scandals broke.

It doesn't seem like Oliver was aware of the extent of Rose's alleged "wrongdoings" ... but he definitely had his eye on the ball well before the reckoning.

Mark Cuban LaVar Ball Is Playing Trump Like a Fiddle

11/21/2017 1:20 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Mark Cuban is CONGRATULATING LaVar Ball for his celebrity beef with Donald Trump ... saying the way LaVar has handled the China shoplifting crisis is straight out of Trump's playbook.

The Dallas Mavericks owner says the twist in the whole Ball vs. Trump war is that Ball and Trump are kinda like the same person.

They both know what to say to stay relevant. They both refuse to apologize for anything. They're both news media masters

And, in the end ... Cuban says the real winner is the BIG. BALLER. BRAND.

Congrats.

David Foster to 'RHOC' Star Get the Hell Outta My Car!!! I Don't Know You, Lady

11/21/2017 10:58 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

David Foster quickly hit the reject button when some random chick -- to him, anyway -- tried to get in his car to leave with him ... and it FREAKED him the hell out.

The bizarre incident went down Monday night as the legendary producer was leaving Craig's. Things got super weird at his car -- while David was talking to our guy, 'Real Housewives of Orange County' star Kelly Dodd, walked up the passenger side and said, "You're gonna have another housewife." 

You've gotta see David's reaction. Yeah, he was married to Yolanda Hadid, but he's definitely NOT looking for an encore 'Housewife' performance ... which Kelly learned the hard way. 

Ass. Kicked. To the curb ... in this awesome video.

David's spokeswoman tells TMZ, "In today’s environment, what Kelly did was careless, inappropriate and disrespectful. David drove away in his car, alone and shaken. The video and her remarks speak for itself."

Kelly tells TMZ, "I was with my friends Heather McDonald and Lea Black and I was joking when I said he needs a new housewife. I guess he didn’t find it funny."

Tyrese & Michael Blackson Yup, Still Beating This Dead Horse ...

11/21/2017 7:06 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tyrese is keeping his acting chops sharp for "Fast & Furious 9" -- if it ever shoots -- by continuing to play the role of hostage taker ... even though the jig is fully up.

We got Tyrese and his would-be captive, comedian Michael Blackson, Monday night at Mr Chow ... where Mike still appeared to be under Tyrese's thumb. It's an odd bit of theater, considering TMZ already broke the real story 12 hours earlier.

Police rushed to Tyrese's home when he posted a video making it seem like he was getting violent revenge on Blackson. Turned out to be a publicity stunt, but apparently, they're bucking to replace Key & Peele -- because the duo's still in character.

Neither the Emmy, Oscar nor Tony goes to ...

Melania & Barron Trump O Christmas Tree ... O Damn, That's a Big Christmas Tree!

11/20/2017 3:57 PM PST

The Trumps are going full Griswold for the holidays, 'cause they just got a Christmas tree even Chevy Chase might consider too big. Might.

Melania and Barron Trump stood by Monday as the White House holiday tree was delivered by horse-drawn carriage. We're told it comes in at a whopping 19.5 feet in length. 

The tree is a Wisconsin-grown Balsam fir provided by the Chapman family of Silent Night Evergreens. They won a national contest for the honor this year. 

It's tradition for the First Lady to decorate the tree based on a theme of her choosing ... and Melania seems to be giving her first one some serious thought.

No pressure!  

Pat Houston Whitney Would've Been Proud Of Xtina's AMA Tribute

11/20/2017 1:00 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Christina Aguilera's tribute to Whitney Houston during Sunday's AMAs was heartfelt, lovely and fabulous ... according to Whitney's sister-in-law.

We got Pat Houston at LAX and asked what she thought of folks hating on Christina's performance -- with some even suggesting it made P!nk cringe.

Pat's not buying that -- in fact, she says the homage was "amazing." According to her, the only opinions that matter are Christina's and Whit's fam ... and it sounds like she nailed the latter.

As for P!nk's apparent reaction, Pat's got an explanation. Hint ... what does everyone do right before they cry?

Christina Aguilera Here's My Reaction to P!nk's Reaction

11/20/2017 6:52 AM PST

Christina Aguilera saw P!nk's grimace and raised her ... a grin.

We got Christina leaving The Nice Guy in WeHo after the American Music Awards. Judging from the stone-cold look on her face Xtina'd already heard about P!nk's facial reaction to her Whitney Houston tribute during the show.

P!nk's apparent reaction went viral with many thinking she was not feeling the performance. Well, Christina gave us her own reaction ... to the reaction.

They've had bad blood before -- remember Christina tried punching P!nk in the face years ago. Still, P!nk tried early on to diffuse this AMA beef with a tweet because she said she loved the performance.

Wonder what Christina thought of P!nk's act.

Tyrese Cops Rush to Home After Video Surfaces of Bound and Gagged Man

11/20/2017 6:29 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Police beelined it for Tyrese's home early Monday morning after he posted a video showing a man tied up in his underwear, looking distressed in Tyrese's home ... as Tyrese eats ramen.

The video -- posted at 3 AM -- shows the man bound and gagged and it looks like he's being held hostage. The man on the couch is comedian Michael Blackson ... whose own vid, infamously mocking Tyrese's breakdown, went viral a couple weeks ago.

LAPD got a flurry of calls after Tyrese posted his vid of Michael bound and gagged -- people felt he had finally lost it, and kidnapped Blackson out of revenge ... now that he has 50/50 custody of Shayla.

When cops arrived at Tyrese's home they spoke with his security and were told the video was a well-produced "joke" -- and Blackson was totally in on it. 

Crisis averted. And well played ... by Tyrese and Blackson.

Donald Trump Rips Marshawn Lynch Suspend Him If He Kneels Again!

11/20/2017 5:58 AM PST
Breaking News

Donald Trump has turned his sights on BeastMode -- blasting the NFL star for sitting during the U.S. national anthem -- but standing for the Mexican national anthem -- during his game this weekend.

Marshawn Lynch was clearly looking to send a political message when his Oakland Raiders played the New England Patriots in Mexico City on Sunday.

But it rubbed Trump the wrong way ... with POTUS tweeting:

"Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect!"

"Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down."

P!nk at 2017 AMAs Performs on Side of the JW Marriott ... At 90 Degrees

11/19/2017 7:21 PM PST

P!nk sure knows her best angles -- 'cause she just did an entire performance on the side of a building ... and made it look effortless.

The pop star did the death-defying stunt Sunday night in L.A. for the 2017 American Music Awards -- in which she hung off the side of the JW Marriott Hotel next to the Microsoft Theater while singing her song "Beautiful Trauma" ... just about 34 floors high.

While the rest of us were covering our eyes in complete fear for her safety, P!nk looked like she'd just gotten hired as a Cirque du Soleil ... twirling around like a veteran acrobat. 

As we reported ... P!nk definitely got some practice in ahead of the performance, which seems like it paid off big time. 

Kids, don't try this at home. 

Ashanti to Concert Fans Stop Throwing Money 'I'm Not a F****** Stripper!'

11/19/2017 11:41 AM PST

Don't ever mistake Ashanti for a stripper, 'cause she'll stop her show and call you the hell out ... as a group of her fans quickly learned this weekend.

Ashanti and Ja Rule performed Saturday at the Neal S. Blaisdell Center in Honolulu, where the singer stopped her part of the show mid-song to blast some concert-goers who were tossing cash at her while she did a choreographed lap dance as part of her routine. 

As you can see ... she quickly shut that down by reminding 'em she's not a "f****** stripper." 

Turns out, the folks making it rain were actually employees of a nearby strip club called Ballarrinas -- and the owner didn't take too kindly to Ashanti's outburst.

In an IG post, the owner -- Dyamin Thomas -- said ... "WAIT Ashanti ain’t that you in your background video throwing money ? And aren’t you giving a lap dance ? Lmfao .. she ain’t say nothing to me but you gonna pick on the small white boy lol my Dj ? Damn."

Meanwhile, Ja seemed more than happy about the extra dough lying around onstage. Not as happy as his DJ, though.

U.S. Navy Yup, That's a Dong in the Sky. Our Bad!!!

11/17/2017 8:30 AM PST

Look, up in the sky! That's definitely not a bird or a plane ... it's a giant freakin' penis.

That's right, the U.S. Navy is taking time out of, y'know ... defending the nation, to issue an apology for one seriously cocky pilot. The giant dong popped up Thursday in the sky over Washington State.

The Maverick-wannabe who pulled the stunt hails from the Whidbey Island naval station ... which prompted his superiors to say, "We find this absolutely unacceptable, of zero training value and we are holding the crew accountable."

Get that? IF there was "training value" in it, we'd be seeing twigs and berries all over the sky. 

Aim high!!!
