Joy Behar Corden Attacked Bad Guy, Not Victims ... Cut Him a Break, Rose!!!

10/16/2017 1:02 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joy Behar is jumping to James Corden's defense after his Harvey Weinstein jokes got him skewered.

We got Joy Monday in NYC where she said Rose McGowan was going after the wrong guy by blasting Corden for his Weinstein comments at an AMFAR event.

If ya missed it, Rose called him a "motherf**king piglet" -- but Joy says it's not like James was mocking Weinstein victims. Plus, she says it's hardly fresh ground ... lots of late night hosts have laid into the movie mogul.

Corden has since apologized, but the way Joy sees it ... there was no need. Not with actual piglets still roaming Hollywood -- and she names names. 

Rodeo Champ Ty Murrray Gets Hitched Again Not My 1st Rodeo, Hopefully My Last!

10/16/2017 12:39 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jewel's rodeo champ ex-hubby, Ty Murray, is gettin' back on the horse ... when it comes to love and marriage.

Ty and FOX Sports reporter Paige Duke tied the knot September 30 at the Quarry at Carrigan Farms in North Carolina. They had the place decked out to be every cowboy/girl's dream.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Ty and Paige handed out homemade apple butter and personalized tobacco bottles as party favors to their 200 or so guests. Best of all, Ty and Jewel's son, Kase, was dad's best man.

And how's this for a real cowboy? Ty's wedding band was made out of elk antler and metal from his father's wedding ring. Paige went more traditional ... with a Cathy Waterman designed diamond ring.

Jewel did not attend, but since she once referred to her and Ty's split as "tender undoing of ourselves" ... we're guessing she's fine with this.

D.L. Hughley Colin Kaepernick Is More Hated Than O.J.

10/16/2017 11:42 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

D.L. Hughley says there's someone America hates MORE than O.J. Simpson, and that man is Colin Kaepernick ... who Hughley thinks is getting the major shaft from NFL owners, and the American public.

As we previously reported, Kaep is gearing up to file a grievance against the NFL, alleging collusion by the NFL owners to keep him out of the league following his national anthem protest.

We got Hughley at LAX, and he told our guy he agrees 100% the NFL honchos are blackballing Colin -- and he has a reason.

"If Kaepernick had gotten an opportunity to try out for a squad and not made it, then this whole thing wouldn't have merit." Later adding, "If he's incapable of playing how come they've never let him prove it on the field?"

D.L. wasn't finished, saying in his opinion Kaep is one of the three most hated black men in America along with Obama and the aforementioned double murderer. But in his opinion, Colin has it worse.

"They hate Colin Kaepernick right now more than they hate O.J."

Nelly Rape Case Still Open for Cops After Accuser Backs Down

10/16/2017 11:13 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nelly's rape accuser refusing to testify doesn't change a thing for cops who are powering through with the investigation ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources in Washington State tell us police in Auburn are undeterred by the accuser's noncooperation with the investigation. We're told Auburn PD is still gathering evidence and plans to present the case to the prosecutor's office.

TMZ broke the story ... the alleged victim says she couldn't take the pressure of taking on a celebrity, and felt betrayed by police -- so she would not testify against Nelly. While her noncooperation makes the case more challenging, it's not impossible to prosecute.

We're told Auburn cops want to present the case to prosecutors soon -- within the next week.

Nelly's attorney, Scott Rosenblum, tells TMZ he's confident the case will be closed based on the evidence. He adds, "I would expect the police to do their due diligence."

Ultimately, it will be up to prosecutors to decide if Nelly's charged. Bottom line? Although he acted like a weight was lifted off his shoulders this weekend ... he's not off the hook yet.

Denise Richards Here, Take A Million Bucks Off My House!

10/16/2017 10:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Denise Richards is taking extreme action in trying to unload her Hidden Hills home ... she's slashed the asking price by almost $1.3 MILLION.

Richards put the home on the market for $7.29 million over a year ago, but no takers. The ranch-style 6 bedroom, 8 bath home is still for sale ... for the reduced price of $5.995 mil.

The 8,200 square foot home has been extensively remodeled. It's also got some unique features ... a lagoon pool with a waterfall and a grotto, a pizza oven, wine cellar with tasting room and custom-built dog kennel/hotel for dog lovers.

Denise will still pocket a pretty penny. She bought the home in 2007 for way less ... $4.395 million.

Tristan Thompson Trolled By J.R. Smith: Buyin' Fur Coats For Your Baby??

10/16/2017 10:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tristan Thompson got totally roasted by his teammates during a fan event Sunday night ... when he was asked if he's already gone fur coat shopping for his baby with Khloe Kardashian.

TMZ broke the story ... the Cavs star and Khloe -- his girlfriend of 1 year -- are expecting their first child together.

So when T.T. was asked about having "his and her" fur coats with Khloe at the Cavs' annual "Wine & Gold United" event on Sunday, J.R. Smith decided to tease Thompson about his new addition.

"You gettin' infant fur, too??" 

You gotta see Tristan's reaction ... and his teammates absolutely lose it.

Harvey and Bob Weinstein Showdown Tues Will Get Loud, Ugly

10/16/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein and his brother, Bob Weinstein, will have a showdown Tuesday that will inevitably lead to screaming, profanities and ultimately the threat of a lawsuit that could do in the company ... multiple sources connected to the meeting tell TMZ. 

The Board of Directors of The Weinstein Co. has a meeting on the books and we're told Harvey Weinstein's firing is on the agenda. Harvey will be on speakerphone ... he's in Arizona to get treatment for behavioral issues and sex addition. His civil lawyer, Patty Glaser, will be present in the room.

Our sources say Glaser is prepared to outline multiple reasons why her client's firing violates his contract. As we reported, the company never gave him a reason for booting him out, and our sources say to this day the company has never offered Harvey or Glaser any reason. She's also prepared to argue Harvey did not violate the contract.

As we reported, there's a provision that covers claims such as sexual harassment, and as long as Weinstein reimburses the company for any settlement or judge and then pays a penalty, all is good. Glaser will note the contract was signed in October 2015 and since then there hasn't been a single claim against her client.

As strong as Glaser is, we're told the lawyers who rep TWC, O'Melveny and Myers, believe the company had every right to fire Harvey. They say the company's Code of Conduct gives them that right, but we're told Glaser's position is that the contract trumps the Code.

Now the heat ... our sources say Bob Weinstein is angry -- livid -- over the whole situation and loses control during heated conversations. Harvey and Bob are birds of a feather, and people involved in the meeting say it's inevitable things will get loud and ugly.

We're told Glaser is ready to amp things up if the Board doesn't see things her way ... which is unlikely. She can try and force mediation and arbitration, which is provided for in the contract, but if the Board won't play ball we're told she's ready to file a lawsuit.  

As one very connected source put it, "There is so much crap that will be unearthed in a lawsuit, the company just can't survive it."

Stay tuned.

Boosie Bro Off the Hook For Alleged Bank Siphoning

10/16/2017 9:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Boosie's brother is dodging serious potential jail time for allegedly stealing more than $300k from his famous sibling, but the big question ... WHY??

The D.A. in charge of Taquari Hatch's case has refused to file charges against him -- despite cops busting him for allegedly siphoning $361,000 from Boosie's account.

We broke the story ... Taquari was booked for identity theft and fraud charges after cops claimed he posed as Boosie to authorize multiple wire transfers. Taquari had always maintained he was innocent ... and it now seems the D.A. agrees -- or at least feels the evidence wasn't strong enough.

We've reached out to the D.A.'s office for clarification on why Taquari is walking away scot-free ... so far, no word back.

Boxing Star Cecilia Braekhus Kissed By Opponent ... During Face-Off

10/16/2017 10:03 AM PDT
Breaking News

Yeah -- that's a pretty effective way of promoting a fight.

Earlier today in Norway, undefeated boxing star Cecilia Braekhus was facing off with Sweden's Mikaela Lauren for their upcoming fight ... when Mikaela decided to show Cecilia some love (literally).

Hard to say if it was mind games or if Mikaela just thinks Cecilia's hot ... either way, that was a serious lip-lock.

Cecilia shoved her face in shock, but took the kiss like a champ -- laughing off the gesture and even thanking her future opponent for giving her some sugar.

T.I. to Nelly 'Put That Bulls*** Behind You!!!'

10/16/2017 8:47 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nelly is a king who should focus on being great again -- that's his pal, T.I.'s advice on the heels of Nelly's rape accuser refusing to testify.

Nelly performed in South Florida this weekend ... his first gig since getting arrested in Washington for rape. The after-party went down at Rockwell Nightclub, at around 3 AM Sunday he got onstage with T.I. ... who made it clear where he stands on the allegation against Nelly.

Earlier, Nelly performed at The Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach. The performance came just one day after his rape accuser said she was refusing to testify against him, and wants the matter dropped.

This look on Nelly's face during the show seems to say it all -- I'm moving on!

Harvey Weinstein to Howard Stern Producers Don't Get Sex with Stars Like the Good Ole Days

10/16/2017 7:07 AM PDT

Howard Stern asked Harvey Weinstein a question about having sex with Hollywood actresses that was eerily dead-on ... and Weinstein lied right to his face.

Howard pulled up the 2014 interview Monday morning on his show. In the clip Howard asks Weinstein if he ever got to experience "the mogul aspect" -- meaning having actresses throw themselves at him for a shot at Oscar-winning roles.

Weinstein denied having any such opportunity ... then Howard rephrased, "You can't walk into the room, pull your pants off and say 'Okay, honey let's talk business.'"

It's pretty much exactly the scene dozens of Weinstein's accusers have described. Makes ya think Howard had heard what was Hollywood's worst-kept secret. From Seth MacFarlane's 2013 Oscar nominations joke to Courtney Love ... the allegations were hardly under wraps at that point.

Weinstein claimed he didn't do it, but said others in showbiz were still scoring sexual favors.

Mark Salling Cut His Wrists Before Plea Bargain

10/16/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mark Salling hurt himself in a suicide attempt a month and a half before striking a plea deal in his child porn case ... TMZ has learned.

We're told the "Glee" star was in the bedroom of his L.A. area home on August 22 when he cut both of his wrists. We're told Mark "freaked out" and screamed for his roommate, who discovered him bleeding and called 911.

Paramedics rushed to the home where they treated Mark, put him in an ambulance and took him to the hospital.

We're told Mark was taken for psychiatric evaluation, and days later, was taken to a rehab facility for psychological issues.

Mark's arms are scarred, which is apparently why he's been wearing long sleeves in the Los Angeles heat.

As we reported, Salling copped a plea in his child porn case earlier this month ... a case that was filed after cops found more than 50,000 images of child porn and child erotica on his personal computer.

The prosecution recommended 4 to 7 years in prison under the plea deal. The judge has yet to impose a sentence.

Mark's lawyer denies the story but will not say which details are incorrect, adding, "Mark is physically fine and Mark is spending his time atoning and working on himself."

Liam Payne No Time For News ... I'm A Dad On Diaper Duty!

10/16/2017 6:43 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Liam Payne isn't up on current events because he's been too busy changing diapers and ain't ashamed to admit it.

We got the One Direction-er leaving Catch Sunday night. He and 'X Factor (UK)' judge Cheryl Cole welcomed their first kid, Bear, in March.

Liam didn't have much to say when it came to the recent Harvey Weinstein headlines and the tasteless joke his pal and late night host, James Corden, made at a recent LA charity gig about him. For those who missed it, Corden joked that watching Weinstein in hot water all week had been weird, and then threw the punchline "Ask any of the women who watched him take a bath, it's weird." Corden's since apologized.

Liam steered clear of the controversies but gave his 2 cents on being a proper dad. Sounds like he's got his hands full.
